1 Bwanje Cement Project Presentation
London – 20th March, 2013

2 Bwanje Cement Bwanje Cement Company Limited (BCCL) has for sometime been working on a green field cement plant to be constructed at Malowa Hills, Malawi. The planned plant will consist of one 500,000 MT annual capacity production line.

3 Bwanje Cement Company Ltd
Bwanje Cement Company Limited, a wholly Malawian owned company was incorporated on 19th March, 2010, with Company Registration No 10401 BCCL Current Shareholders are: Umoza Holdings Limited , Kanjere Associates (Architects), Zingano Associates (Architects), Anderson Engineering(Mechanical Engineers), Matundu Holdings(Investors) Umoza Holdings has been incorporated as a special purpose vehicle (SPV)

Bwanje Cement MINING AND GEOLOGY Initial studies carried out by Met-Chem, a Canadian consulting company commissioned by Malawi Government and funded by the World Bank covered surface mapping 2481 metres of drilling and 647 assay samples which proved 15million Mt at Malowa Hills. The exploration programme was for chemical grade lime. Kai Batla reviewed the data and produced models

Bwanje Cement BCCL and PPC carried out a joint drilling programme in September, on Khungule Hill as a potential source of limestone uncontaminated by granite and/or dolerite intrusives. The drilling consisted of 25 inclined RC holes on sections 200m apart with 100m hole spacing. Hole depths varied from 30m to 73m. Downhole samples were collected every meter and full analyses of the 1561 samples were undertaken at PPC Lab and counter checked by Set Point Lab; The scope of work included the creation of a geological database, ore body modelling, block model creation and grade interpolation, pit design and reserve reporting and resource classification.

12 Geomagnetic Survey TECHNICAL OVERVIEW cont..
Bwanje Cement Geomagnetic Survey A hand-held geomagnetic survey was conducted by C. E. Kaphwiyo, consulting Geo-Physist and reported in November 2011. A low magnetic signature indicates a potential for sub-outcropping limestone.

Bwanje Cement Based on the recent Geomagnetic Survey, the area of most potential for further prospecting is to the North East of the Malowa hill. The survey indicates a wide unit of sub-outcropping limestone striking in a South Easterly direction towards the Khungule hill. All inclusive drilling and sampling could also be conducted to test the Malowa hill resource. The tonnage distribution for the Bwanje deposits are illustrated below:

14 Khungule-4.5Mt (high alkalis)
TECHNICAL OVERVIEW cont.. Bwanje Cement Further drilling indicated Malowa-24Mt (granite/dolerite intrusions + high alkalis) Khungule-4.5Mt (high alkalis)

15 CEMENT MARKET LHA Management Consultants (LHA) were contracted to
Bwanje Cement LHA Management Consultants (LHA) were contracted to produce an independent review of the Malawi cement market and assess the competitive market situation The report also gives an overview of the economic and infrastructure investment prospects in Malawi, as well as a cement industry perspective with respect to future cement production capacity and demand and pricing trends.

16 CEMENT MARKET Contd/… Bwanje Cement CEMENT PROJECTED PRODUCTION CAPACITY Lafarge strategy is to supply Malawi through its production units in Zambia and Tanzania. Shayona proposing expansion to 100,000 mta; Cement Products Limited is a new entrant with projected production capacity of 90,000 mta
