6 Company Strategy April  Strive to create a significant uranium company to fill the relative void in mid cap uranium companies:  Think big +$250M market cap  Take advantage of potentially cyclically low valuations  Aim to be institutional grade investment  Based on:  A stable financial position  Improving Wiluna - move down the cost curve  Creating value from exploration  Asset growth

11 The Wiluna Uranium Project 11

12 Wiluna Project Location  520 km north of Kalgoorlie and 30 km south of Wiluna Highlights  76.5Mlb JORC Resource  6 shallow calcrete-hosted carnotite deposits  Centipede, Lake Way, Millipede, Lake Maitland, Nowthanna, Dawson Hinkler  First class mining jurisdiction; 100+ years of mining history  Infrastructure and services available – power, gas, transport, people  2014: improve resource definition and process optimisation studies, project finance as market recovers Status  State & Federal Environmental approvals granted for Centipede and Lake Way  Environmental approvals underway for Lake Maitland & Millipede  Low technical risk – simple open cut mining and proven process flow sheet  Project optimisation studies now underway Wiluna Location 12

13 Internal Technically FeasibleRequired Permissions External Optimal Timing Wiluna Development Aligned with Market Recovery Technical Confidence: - Resource - Mining - Processing Timing: Supportive price environment needed. Regulatory Confidence: - Environmental Approval - Mining Leases - Traditional Owner Agreements 13

16 Approvals Strategy  One combined approval document  Withdraw the existing Lake Maitland referral document  Toro would change the project significantly compared to the past referral (in particular, ore to be transported to Centipede for processing and tailings deposited in the approved tailings storage facility)  The proposed changes by Toro will result in a lower level of environmental impact and smaller project footprint  New approval to co-exist with existing Centipede and Lake Way approval  S:45C not the preferred pathway  Life of processing plant camp and other associated infrastructure to be extended  Period for consumption from West Creek Borefield life to be extended (reconfiguring of the borefield may be required to extend life but keep abstraction at or below sustainable yield)  No changes in production from mining at Centipede above what has been approved already  Public interest in the approvals would require a full assessment Millipede and Lake Maitland environmental approvals 16

18 Joint Venture Wiluna Project Finance Target $315m Strategic Partner : Equity : Offtake agreement Wiluna Project Financing Concept 18 Project Finance Structure  Toro is willing to sell a significant interest in the Wiluna Uranium Project  Toro expects the project will support $160M of debt with offtake agreements from its partner  Strong interest from Asia, India and UAE  Data room open with due diligence ongoing
