("Argo" or "the Company")

Notice of General Meeting and Letter from the Chief Executive and Interim Chairman

Argo Blockchain, a global leader in cryptocurrency mining (LSE: ARB), is pleased to announce that it has posted to shareholders a circular convening a General Meeting of the Company to be held at 10:00 am on 6 September 2021

at the offices of finnCap,   1 Bartholomew Cl, London EC1A 7BL . 

The General Meeting has been called to approve a new Remuneration Policy; a new 2021 Equity Incentive Plan; the Grant of Equity compensation to Non-Executive Directors; and the grant of authority to the directors to allot shares and to dis-apply statutory pre-emption rights.

Details of the resolutions can be found within the Notice of General Meeting. A copy of the GM Notice will shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism where it will be available to view at

https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism   and on the Company's website at https://argoblockchain.com/.   The Company has also released an explanatory video on its YouTube channel, available at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RlS39RSZq2U . 

Due to the uncertainty surrounding public gatherings and the broader public health considerations, the Company recommends that shareholders do not attend the General Meeting in person.

Shareholders wishing to attend the General Meeting in person should, providing attendance is permissible under the U.K. Government guidance or regulations in place at such time, register their intention to attend as soon as possible, by emailing ir@argoblockchain.com no later than 11:00am on 2 September 2021.

Shareholders should note that the Company will be implementing social distancing measures and other health and safety precautions, meaning that the available capacity to host attendees in person at the General Meeting will be limited and attendance in person may not therefore be possible for all who may wish to do so.

Please refer to the GM Notice for details on how to vote by proxy and how to ask questions of the Board of Directors.
