· 610,123,712 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the UK Placing, raising gross proceeds of approximately £42.7 million (approximately US$57.1 million) representing 4,000,000 more Ordinary Shares than previously announced by the Company on 24 November 2021 as such shares will be placed under the UK Placing rather than the Canadian Offering;

· 122,072,398 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Canadian Offering, raising gross proceeds of approximately £8.5 million (approximately US$11.4 million), representing 4,000,000 less Ordinary Shares than previously announced by the Company on 24 November 2021 and set forth in the Canadian Prospectus (as defined below) as such shares will be placed under the UK Placing; 

· 74,738,416 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Glencore Subscription, raising gross proceeds of approximately £5.2 million (approximately US$7 million);

· 533,845,825 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Orion Subscription, raising gross proceeds of approximately £37.4 million (approximately US$50 million);

· 759,128,764 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the La Mancha Subscription, raising gross proceeds of approximately £53.1 million (approximately US$71 million); and

· 2,300,735 new Ordinary Shares pursuant to the Open Offer, raising gross proceeds of approximately £0.16 million (approximately US$0.22 million).

The new Ordinary Shares to be issued in aggregate pursuant to the Equity Fundraise represent 123.6 per cent. of the issued share capital of the Company prior to the Equity Fundraise. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalised terms used in this announcement shall have the same meanings as defined in the announcement of the Equity Fundraising made by the Company on 23 November 2021.
