General Notes:

Data is reported to significant figures to reflect appropriate precision and may not sum precisely due to rounding
Mineral Resources are reported inclusive of Ore Reserves

Gold Mineral Resource

  1. Includes stockpiles
  2. Red Lake Mineral Resource cut-off varies from 2.5g/t Au to 3.3g/t Au and are dependent on deposit and location from surface and processing plant
  3. Mungari Open Pit Mineral Resource cut-offs vary from 0.31g/t Au to 0.34g/t Au are dependent on deposit and location from processing plant. The average open pit cut-off is 0.32g/t Au
  4. Mungari Underground Mineral Resource cut-offs vary from 1.46g/t Au to 2.44g/t Au per deposit. The average underground cut-off is 1.96g/t Au
  5. Ernest Henry Operations reported Mineral Resource estimate is based on the June 2023 Mineral Resource detailed in the 17 August 2023 ASX release titled “Further Increase in Ernest Henry Mineral Resource” and is reported within an interpreted 0.7% Cu mineralised envelope
  6. Ernest Henry reported Mineral Resource estimate is depleted to 30 June 2023

Gold Ore Reserve

  1. Includes stockpiles
  2. Ore Reserve has been updated for E42 Stage H Open Pit in line with 2022 corporate commodity price assumptions, updated modifying factors and allowing for depletion. All remaining ‘Open Pit Continuation’ Ore Reserves (OPC) are declared as per December 2021 Cowal Open Pit Ore Reserves. The OPC Ore Reserve will be updated at the completion of the OPC Feasibility Study (‘FS’). Modifying factors to be updated during the FS include Mineral Resource, geotechnical, metallurgical, revenue and cost assumptions. To date, no fatal flaws have been identified during the FS. A materiality test was conducted on the impact of the change between the December 2021 and December 2022 Mineral Resource model on the OPC Ore Reserve, the change is expected to be less than 10%
  3. Cowal Underground Ore Reserve has been optimised using a $1,600/oz price assumption, economically tested at up to $2,200/oz and considers updated modifying factors and depletion. The Cowal Underground Ore Reserve includes development material at an incremental cut-off grade of 0.55g/t Au
  4. Red Lake Ore Reserve cut-off is 4.0g/t Au except for HG Young (3.0g/t Au) and Upper Campbell (2.5g/t Au)
  5. Mungari Underground Ore Reserve cut-off varies from 2.2g/t Au to 3.8g/t Au and is dependent on specific deposits and varies between each underground mine taking into account location and costs
  6. Mungari Open Pit Ore Reserves were optimised using a $1,600/oz gold price assumption. The exceptions are the Paradigm and Castle Hill open pit operations which have been scheduled for production between 2023 and 2025 and have been optimised with a $2,200/oz gold price assumption. Cut-offs vary by deposit from 0.57g/t Au to 0.74g/t Au and take into account location and costs
  7. Ernest Henry reported Ore Reserve estimate is based on the December 2022 Mineral Resource detailed in the ASX Release titled “Annual Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves Statement” dated 16 Feb 2023 and available to view at www.evolutionmining.com.au. The applied flow model cut-off grades of 0.50 % and 0.75% copper equivalent (‘CuEq’) are determined through an economic evaluation process which considers the Net Smelter Return (NSR) and operating costs. The utlised copper equivalent equation is: CuEq = Cu + Au NSR/56.4 where; Au NSR = 38.5 * Au – 0.04
  8. Ernest Henry reported Ore Reserve estimate is depleted to 30 June 2023

Copper Mineral Resource

  1. Ernest Henry Operations reported Mineral Resource estimate is based on the June 2023 Mineral Resource detailed in the 17 August 2023 ASX release titled “Further Increase in Ernest Henry Mineral Resource” and is reported within an interpreted 0.7% Cu mineralised envelope
  2. Ernest Henry reported Mineral Resource estimate is depleted to 30 June 2023

Copper Ore Reserve

  1. Ernest Henry reported Ore Reserve estimate is based on the December 2022 Mineral Resource detailed in the ASX Release titled “Annual Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves Statement” dated 16 Feb 2023 and available to view at www.evolutionmining.com.au. The applied flow model cut-off grades of 0.50 % and 0.75% copper equivalent (‘CuEq’) are determined through an economic evaluation process which considers the Net Smelter Return (NSR) and operating costs. The utilised copper equivalent equation is: CuEq = Cu + Au NSR/56.4 where; Au NSR = 38.5 * Au – 0.04
  2. Ernest Henry reported Ore Reserve estimate is depleted to 30 June 2023
