("Greatland" or "the Company")

Proposed Placing and Subscription

Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), a mining development and exploration company with a focus on precious and base metals, is pleased to announce that it intends to raise a minimum amount of approximately US$10 million (GBP7.4 million) by way of a Placing, Subscription and Retail Offer (as defined below) at a price of 14.5p per new Ordinary Share (the "Issue Price").

The placing of new ordinary shares of nominal value GBP0.001 each in the capital of the Company (the "Placing Shares") will be conducted through an accelerated bookbuild process (the "Bookbuild"), which will be launched immediately following release of this announcement (the "Announcement") and will be made available to new and existing eligible institutional investors (the "Placing"). The Placing is subject to the Terms and Conditions set out in the Appendix to this Announcement.

In conjunction with the Placing, the Company announces its intention to raise gross proceeds of up to US$145,000 (GBP107,000) at the Issue Price by means of a direct subscription of New Ordinary Shares (the "Subscription Shares") by directors and officers of the Company (the "Subscription").

The Directors recognise the importance of giving retail shareholders and investors an opportunity to participate in the Company's ongoing funding should they be unable to participate in the Placing. Consequently, in conjunction with the Placing and Subscription, there will be an offer made by the Company on the PrimaryBid platform of new ordinary shares in the Company (the "Retail Offer Shares") at the Issue Price (the "Retail Offer"), to provide certain retail investors with an opportunity to participate in the Fundraise. A separate announcement will be made shortly regarding the Retail Offer and its terms (the Placing, the Subscription and Retail Offer together the "Fundraise").

Joh. Berenberg, Gossler & Co. KG, London Branch ("Berenberg") and Canaccord Genuity Limited ("Canaccord") are acting as joint bookrunners (together being the "Joint Bookrunners") and SI Capital Ltd ("SI Capital") is acting as lead manager ("Lead Manager") in connection with the Placing.

Summary and Highlights of the Fundraise

-- Intention to conduct a Fundraise utilising its existing authorities to raise minimum gross proceeds of approximately US$10 million (approximately GBP7.4 million) at the Issue Price

-- The Issue Price represents a discount of approximately 10.5 per cent. to the closing mid-market share price per New Ordinary Share on 17 November 2021, being the last practicable date prior to publication of this Announcement

-- The Company is concurrently progressing discussions with several Tier 1 global banks with the aim of providing significant additional funding to the Company for the development of Havieron in the medium-term. To date, the Company has received several indicative term sheets from banks and discussions are ongoing. The Company will continue to update the market on progress as appropriate.

-- The Directors and Officers of the Company intend to subscribe for an aggregate of US$145,000 (approximately GBP107,000), including Shaun Day, Chief Executive Officer who intends to subscribe for 375,000 Subscription Shares.

Background to the Fundraise

Corporate Background

The Company is a leading mining development and exploration company with a focus on precious and base metals . The Company's flagship asset is a joint-venture interest in the potentially world-class Havieron gold-copper deposit in the Paterson region of Western Australia, discovered by Greatland and presently under development in joint venture with Newcrest Mining Ltd.

Havieron is located approximately 45km east of Newcrest's Telfer gold mine and, subject to a positive decision to mine, will leverage the existing infrastructure and processing plant to significantly reduce the project's capital expenditure and carbon impact for a low-cost pathway to development. An extensive growth drilling programme is presently underway at Havieron with a maiden Pre-Feasibility Study released on the South-East crescent on 12 October 2021. Construction of the box cut and decline to develop the Havieron deposit commenced in February 2021.

Greatland has a proven track record of discovery and exploration success. It is pursuing the next generation of tier-one mineral deposits by applying advanced exploration techniques in under-explored regions. The Company is focused on safe, low-risk jurisdictions and is strategically positioned in the highly prospective Paterson region. Greatland has a total of six projects across Australia with a focus on becoming a multi-commodity mining company of significant scale.

Background to Havieron

Since its discovery by Greatland in 2018, Havieron has become established as one of the most promising long-life gold-copper deposits in development worldwide. It has provided Greatland with a strategic position in the Paterson Province of Western Australia, one of the key frontiers for the discovery of tier-one gold-copper deposits.

On 12 October 2021, the Company announced the results of a Stage 1 Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") covering Havieron's South-East Crescent. Despite only covering 28% of the initial Mineral Resource, the PFS confirmed robust project economics from the first 14 Mt of ore in the zone. Highlights of the PFS include:

-- Economics(1) support the total project capex while generating strong early cash flow, IRR and payback

-- Low upfront capital - Greatland share of US$73m(2)

-- Outstanding low-cost operations, AISC US$643/oz(1,3) with further opportunity to reduce

-- Internal Rate of Return of 27% (real IRR, after tax)(1,4)

-- Payback period of 3.0 years(1,5)

-- High grades of 4.58g/t Au Eq(1,6)

-- Capital efficient, low environmental impact with underground mining and use of existing Telfer processing facility for majority of plant infrastructure

-- 17% of revenues estimated to be generated from copper production

-- The PFS demonstrates that including additional existing Inferred Mineral Resource allows for an circa 3Mtpa or greater operation

1. PFS economics are on 100% project basis unless otherwise specified. All assumptions are consistent with Newcrest PFS figures except for macro price assumptions of US$1,750 Gold, US$4.08Ib Copper, and USD:AUD 72c, applied by Greatland. The project economics do not include any estimate the tolling arrangement whereby capital expenditure such as upgrades to the processing plant at Telfer will be paid for by Newcrest 100% and Greatland will pay a capital contribution and tolling margin to Newcrest as part of the proposed tolling arrangement.

   2.     Net of Greatland's US$ 50m existing debt facility 

3. Total operating costs include s mining costs, processing costs, infrastructure costs and general and administrative costs

   4.     Using a discount factor of 4.5% (real) 

5. Payback is the earliest date that net accumulated free cash flow is equal to zero. This is calculated from first commercial production which is defined as the expected commencement date of saleable gold production

6. The gold equivalent (AuEq) is based on assumed prices of US$1,300/oz Au and US$3.00/lb Cu for Ore Reserve and assumed prices of US$1,400/oz Au and US$3.40/lb Cu for Mineral Resource, which equates to a formula of approximately AuEq = Au (g/t) + 1.6 * Cu (%)

Drilling results since the release of the PFS continue to support the potential for resource expansion at Havieron with 90,000 metres of growth drilling targeted to be complete by 30 June 2022. An updated mineral resource estimate for Havieron is expected by the first quarter of 2022, targeting a material increase to mineral resources reported in the Maiden Resource Estimate on 10 December 2020. Both Early Works construction activities and Feasibility Study work by Newcrest continue to progress. Significant upside opportunities are being assessed with a view to increasing the scale and life of Havieron as well as adopting alternative, lower cost, mining methods. The Feasibility Study remains on track to be delivered in the December quarter of 2022.

Other funding opportunities

The Company has entered into a US$50 million loan agreement with Newcrest, the terms of which were announced by the Company on 30 November 2020.

Greatland also announces that the Company is concurrently progressing discussions with several Tier 1 global banks with the aim of providing significant additional funding to the Company for the development of Havieron in the medium-term. To date, the Company has received several indicative term sheets from banks and discussions are ongoing. The Company will continue to update the market on progress as appropriate.

Details of the Placing

The Placing will be conducted through a Bookbuild which will launch immediately following this announcement. The Placing is subject to the Terms and Conditions set out in the Appendix to this Announcement. The Issue Price is 14.5p per New Ordinary Share.

No offering document, prospectus or admission document has been or will be prepared or submitted to be approved by the FCA (or any other authority) in relation to the Placing or the Placing Shares, and Placees' commitments will be made solely on the basis of publicly available information taken together with the information contained in this Announcement .

Each Placee, by participating in the Placing, agrees that the content of this Announcement and the publicly available information released by or on behalf of the Company is exclusively the responsibility of the Company and confirms to the Joint Bookrunners and the Company that it has neither received nor relied on any other information, representation, warranty, or statement made by or on behalf of the Company (other than publicly available information) or the Joint Bookrunners or their respective Affiliates or any other person and none of the Joint Bookrunners nor the Company, nor any of their respective Affiliates nor any other person will be liable for any Placee's decision to participate in the Placing based on any other information, representation, warranty or statement which the Placees may have obtained or received (regardless of whether or not such information, representation, warranty or statement was given or made by or on behalf of any such persons).

Lock-up

By participating in the Placing, Placees agree that the exercise by the Joint Bookrunners of any power to grant consent to waive the undertaking by the Company of a transaction which would otherwise be subject to the lock-up under the Placing Agreement shall be within the absolute discretion of the Joint Bookrunners and that they need not make any reference to, or consult with, Placees and that they shall have no liability to Placees whatsoever in connection with any such exercise of the power to grant consent.

Registration and settlement

Settlement of transactions in the Placing Shares (ISIN: GB00B15XDH89) following Admission will take place within the relevant system administered by Euroclear ("CREST"), using the delivery versus payment mechanism, subject to certain exceptions. Subject to certain exceptions, the Joint Bookrunners and the Company reserve the right to require settlement for, and delivery of, the Placing Shares to Placees by such other means that they deem necessary if delivery or settlement is not practicable in CREST within the timetable set out in this Announcement or would not be consistent with the regulatory requirements in the Placee's jurisdiction.

Each Placee agrees that it will do all things necessary to ensure that delivery and payment for any Placing Shares is completed in accordance with either the standing CREST or certificated settlement instructions that it has in place with the relevant Joint Bookrunner.

The Company will deliver the relevant Placing Shares in accordance with the Placing Agreement, to a CREST account operated by the relevant Joint Bookrunner as agent for the Company and each Joint Bookrunner will enter its delivery (DEL) instruction into the CREST system. The Joint Bookrunners will hold any Placing Shares delivered to this account as nominee for the relevant Placees procured by it. The input to CREST by a Placee of a matching or acceptance instruction will then allow delivery of the relevant Placing Shares to that Placee against payment.

It is expected that settlement of the Placing Shares will be on 24 November 2021 on a T+3 basis in accordance with the instructions given by the Joint Bookrunners.

Interest is chargeable daily on payments not received from Placees on the due date in accordance with the arrangements set out above at the rate of two percentage points above Barclays Bank PLC as determined by the Joint Bookrunners , with interest compounded on a daily basis .

Each Placee agrees that, if it does not comply with these obligations, the Joint Bookrunners may sell any or all of the Placing Shares allocated to that Placee on such Placee's behalf and retain from the proceeds, for the Company's account and benefit, an amount equal to the aggregate amount owed by the Placee plus any interest due. The relevant Placee will, however, remain liable for any shortfall below the aggregate amount owed by it and shall be required to bear any stamp duty, stamp duty reserve tax or other stamp, securities, transfer, registration, execution, documentary or other similar impost, duty or tax (together with any interest or penalties) which may arise upon the sale of such Placing Shares on such Placee's behalf. The foregoing is without prejudice to any cause of action the Joint Bookrunners may have against a defaulting Placee.

If Placing Shares are to be delivered to a custodian or settlement agent, Placees should ensure that the custodian or settlement agent is notified immediately to the relevant person within that organisation. Insofar as Placing Shares are registered in a Placee's name or that of its nominee or in the name of any person for whom a Placee is contracting as agent or that of a nominee for such person, such Placing Shares should, subject to as provided below, be so registered free from any liability to United Kingdom stamp duty or United Kingdom stamp duty reserve tax. If there are any circumstances in which any other stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax (and/or any interest, fines or penalties relating thereto) is payable in respect of the allocation, allotment, issue or delivery of the Placing Shares (or for the avoidance of doubt if any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax is payable in connection with any subsequent transfer of or agreement to transfer Placing Shares), none of the Joint Bookrunners nor the Company shall be responsible for the payment thereof. Placees will not be entitled to receive any fee or commission in connection with the Placing.

The foregoing acknowledgements, agreements, undertakings, representations, warranties and confirmations are given for the benefit of the Company as well as each of the Joint Bookrunners (for their own benefit and, where relevant, the benefit of their respective Affiliates and any person acting on their behalf) and are irrevocable. Each Placee, and any person acting on behalf of a Placee, acknowledges that none of the Joint Bookrunners or the Company owe any fiduciary or other duties to any Placee in respect of any representations, warranties, undertakings or indemnities in the Placing Agreement.

Please also note that the agreement to allot and issue Placing Shares to Placees (or the persons for whom Placees are contracting as nominee or agent) free of UK stamp duty and UK stamp duty reserve tax relates only to their allotment and issue to Placees, or such persons as they nominate as their agents or nominees, direct from the Company for the Placing Shares in question. None of the Company or the Joint Bookrunners will be responsible for any UK stamp duty or UK stamp duty reserve tax or any other transfer taxes (including any interest, fines and penalties relating thereto) arising in relation to the Placing Shares in any other circumstances.

Such agreement is subject to the representations, warranties and further terms above and also assumes, and is based on a warranty from each Placee, that the Placing Shares are not being acquired in connection with arrangements to issue depositary receipts or to issue or transfer the Placing Shares into a clearance service. None of the Joint Bookrunners nor the Company are liable to bear any stamp duty or stamp duty reserve tax or any other similar duties or taxes ("transfer taxes") or related interest, fines or penalties that arise (i) if there are any such arrangements (or if any such arrangements arise subsequent to the acquisition by Placees of Placing Shares) or (ii) on a sale of Placing Shares, or (iii) otherwise than under the laws of the United Kingdom.

Each Placee should, therefore, take its own advice as to whether any such transfer tax liability arises.

Each Placee and any person acting on behalf of each Placee acknowledges and agrees that any Joint Bookrunners or any of their respective Affiliates may, at their absolute discretion, agree to become a Placee in respect of some or all of the Placing Shares. Each Placee acknowledges and is aware that the Joint Bookrunners are receiving a fee in connection with their role in respect of the Placing as detailed in the Placing Agreement.

When a Placee or person acting on behalf of the Placee is dealing with the Joint Bookrunners, any money held in an account with any of the Joint Bookrunners on behalf of the Placee and/or any person acting on behalf of the Placee will not be treated as client money within the meaning of the rules and regulations of the FCA made under the FSMA. The Placee acknowledges that the money will not be subject to the protections conferred by the client money rules, as a consequence, this money will not be segregated from the Joint Bookrunners' money in accordance with the client money rules and will be used by the Joint Bookrunners in the course of its own business, and the Placee will rank only as a general creditor of the Joint Bookrunners.

All times and dates in this Announcement may be subject to amendment. Either of the Joint Bookrunners shall notify the Placees and any person acting on behalf of the Placees of any changes.

No statement in the Placing Documents is intended to be a profit forecast or estimate, and no statement in the Placing Documents should be interpreted to mean that earnings per share of the Company for the current or future financial years would necessarily match or exceed the historical published earnings per share of the Company. Past performance is no guide to future performance and persons needing advice should consult an independent financial adviser.

The rights and remedies of the Joint Bookrunners and the Company under these Terms and Conditions are in addition to any rights and remedies which would otherwise be available to each of them and the exercise or partial exercise of one will not prevent the exercise of others.

If a Placee is a discretionary fund manager, the Placee may be asked to disclose in writing or orally to the Joint Bookrunners the jurisdiction in which the funds are managed or owned.

Each Placee may be asked to disclose in writing or orally to the Joint Bookrunners:

   (a)          if he or she is an individual, his or her nationality; or 

(b) if he or she is a discretionary fund manager, the jurisdiction in which the funds are managed or owned.
