Galileo Resources Plc

("Galileo" or "the Company")

Update on Sale of Kalahari Copper Belt Licences

to Sandfire Resources Ltd ("Sandfire")

Galileo Resources plc ("Galileo" or the "Company") further to its announcement on 26 January 2021 is pleased to announce that on 30 July 2021 it entered into a variation agreement (the Variation Agreement) with ASX listed Sandfire Resources Limited ( ASX:SFR) ("Sandfire") in relation to its conditional licence sale agreement (the "Licence Sale Agreement") with Sandfire. Unless indicated to the contrary defined terms in Galileo's announcement dated 26 January 2021 in relation to the Licence Sale Agreement have the same meaning.

The Parties have agreed to amend the Licence Sale Agreement to facilitate the continuity of exploration expenditure on the Included Licences and to amend the list of Included Licences and Excluded Licences in accordance with the Variation Agreement.

The key commercial terms of the Variation Agreement are to make the following variations to the Licence Sale Agreement:

i) Change the long stop date for the meeting of the conditions from 31 July 2021 to 31 August 2021;

ii) Sandfire to at completion of the Licence Sale Agreement, reimburse Galileo up to US$500,000 of exploration expenditure incurred by Galileo in relation to licence obligations of certain Included Licences being transferred to Sandfire (the "Reimbursed Exploration Expenditure");

iii) Sandfire's US$4,000,000 Exploration Commitment under the Licence Sale Agreement to be reduce by the amount of the Reimbursed Exploration Expenditure;

iv) PL 368/2018 which was due to expire on 30 September 2021 to be removed from the list of Included Licences to be transferred to Sandfire as this licence is, with the agreement of Sandfire, being relinquished; and

v) Removing the option for Sandfire to elect to pay the Success Payment under the Licence Sale Agreement by issuing Sandfire shares to Galileo which means the Success Payment if due will be paid in cash. Note: given the limited exploration conducted on the Included Licences to date and the many years that it could take to establish an Ore Reserve, there can be no guarantee that any such Success Payment will be forthcoming.

Updated list of Included Licences and Excluded Licences.
