UNAUDITED INTERIM RESULTS

FOR THE SIX MONTHSED 31 DECEMBER 2016

The Directors of AIM-quoted and AltX-listed Jubilee, the Mine-to-Metals company, are pleased to announce the unaudited interim results of the Group for the six months ended 31 December 2016.

The interim results and post review period activities reflect the Company's transformation and continued strong growth in establishing itself as a significant player in the recovery of metals from at or near surface material leveraging off its in-house metallurgical expertise. These activities are anchored by the Companies world class Tjate platinum project now holding a fully executed mining right. Recently announced and completed transactions coupled with the commissioning of both its Dilokong Chrome Mine ("DCM") operations and Hernic Ferro Chrome ("Hernic") operations are not only transformational for Jubilee but also puts the Company in a strong position to continue to grow its position in the platinum and associated base metals industry.

Comparative financial and operational numbers are skewed by this transformational period experienced by the Company over the past 18 months. The interpretation of the financial and operational results is impaired by the number of corporate activities and transactions that were concluded over the last 18 months which includes the disposal of the Company's Middelburg Operations, the commissioning of the DCM chromite processing plant and the construction in progress of the Hernic platinum and chrome processing plant while including the ongoing strengthening of the Group's balance sheet as it progresses with its Mine-to-Metals strategy. The Hernic platinum and chrome operations were commissioned in February and March 2017 which falls outside of the financial period under review and are not reflected in these results.

Operations and Projects highlights

Dilokong Chrome Mine Platinum and Chrome Tailings Operation ("DCM operation")

-- The DCM operation (chromite recovery section) reached full operational stability in Q4 2016.

-- The DCM operation produced 47 667 tonnes (15 188 tonnes for Q1 and Q2 2016) of saleable chromite concentrate for the period under review resulting in a project revenue of GBP 4.84 million (ZAR 85.02 million) compared with GBP 1.00 million (ZAR 19.14 million) for Q1 and Q2 2016.

-- Total DCM operational earnings increased to GBP 3.385 million (ZAR 54.50 million) from GBP 0.744 million (ZAR 14.20 million) for Q1 and Q2 2016 of which GBP 1.36 million (ZAR 30.58 million) is attributable to Jubilee.

-- Post the period under review, the DCM operation commenced processing of 3(rd) party PGM ("Platinum Group Metals")-bearing chromite ore in addition to the processing of tailings material. The 3(rd) party ore agreement affords Jubilee the right to the majority of earnings generated by the processing of 3(rd) party ore.

-- The platinum processing options for the PGM material after the chromite recovery were reviewed: the preferred option is a combined on-site upgrading of platinum content of PGM material to double approximately the in-situ value prior to toll processing the upgraded PGM material.

-- The Company is in discussions to conclude a commercial arrangement for the toll processing of the upgraded PGM material.

Hernic Ferro Chrome Platinum and Chrome Tailings Operation ("Hernic operations")

-- Construction of the 660 000 tonnes per annum platinum and chromite processing plant commenced with commissioning as scheduled in December 2016.

-- Project Capital expenditure to 31 December 2016 totalled GBP 10.00 million (ZAR 167.10 million) which represents 85% of the projected total capital spent for the Project which is in line with the targeted milestones of the project.

-- Since the period end, capital expenditure has increased to GBP 11.64 million, at current conversion rates, (ZAR 186.76 million) which represents 95% of the projected capital spent with the remaining 5% of project capital linked to the performance of the project.

-- First chromite concentrate product from the Jubilee chromite recovery plant ("CRP") was delivered post the period under review in February 2017.

-- The PGM recovery plant ("PGM Plant"), which follows the CRP, was tied in to the CRP post the period under review during February 2017.

-- Commissioning and ramp-up of the fully integrated Hernic operation commenced on schedule with the first platinum concentrate produced post the period under review in March 2017.

PlatCro Platinum and Chrome Tailings Project ("PlatCro project")

-- Post the period under review, in March 2017, Jubilee acquired the sole rights to 1.25 million tonnes of surface material existing at PlatCro as well as all future surface material. The existing material has an estimated grade of 2.7 g/t 4E PGMs (platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold).

-- The acquisition is targeted to add 14 000 oz PGMs annually to Jubilee's existing PGM production from tailings and 3rd party ore.

-- The acquisition places the Company's production trajectory at stable operations at 50 000 oz PGMs per annum with no exposure to deep level mining.

Resilience Mining Australia Copper Tailings Project ("RMA project")

-- Jubilee successfully extended its metallurgical processing expertise to surface copper in Australia opening the potential to significant further opportunities for growth.

-- Post the period under review Jubilee secured a copper surface tailings project with RMA in Australia.

-- The RMA project production forecast of 12,000 tonnes (t) of copper (Cu) at production cost AUD3, 381/t Cu (USD2, 569/t Cu) - Current Cu price USD6, 000/ t Cu.

-- Several of the RMA project Tenements are targeted to be production-ready within four months of the Transaction and able to produce positive cash flow within 6 month.

-- Near surface resources of 35,000 tonnes Cu in combination of JORC compliant category and mineral inventory.

Tjate Platinum Project

-- Post the period under review Tjate Platinum Corporation Proprietary Limited ("Tjate") executed on 1 March 2017 the mining right for its SAMREC Compliant 22.33 million (indicated and inferred) PGM oz Tjate Platinum Project with the Department of Mineral Resources ("DMR")

Chief Executive Leon Coetzer commented:

"Jubilee has experienced a transformational period over the past 18 months which has continued through the current period. This has been brought about through the sale of its Middelburg Operations and the acquisition of three platinum surface processing projects targeting an annualised production capacity in excess of 1,140,000 tonnes per annum. The award of the Tjate mining right further emphasised the progress made in the implementation of Jubilee's business model of establishing a fully integrated Mines to Metals Company.

I am also pleased that we are able to successfully extend our processing expertise of surface material to other regions such as Australia exposing Jubilee to the vast opportunities in that region and not limiting our growth potential to South Africa alone.

Jubilee has brought the first two of its surface processing projects on-line with the first platinum concentrate production commencing at the Hernic project in March of this year. We have also secured a further two surface projects to continue along Jubilee's steep growth curve.

Jubilee was successful in securing project funding for the execution and commissioning of both of the DCM and Hernic platinum surface projects through a combination of debt and equity funding. The equity component of the funding was minimised to balance the requirements of the lender while minimising the dilution of our shareholders. The projected strong cash-flows from these projects will assist in the financing of the further processing projects targeted by Jubilee."

INTERIM PERIOD OVERVIEW

   1.   SURFACE PROCESSING OPERATIONS AND PROJECTS 

During the period under review the Company has dramatically transformed its operational and project assets. This transformation included the completion of the disposal of the Middelburg assets with the subsequent final payment received post the period under review in March 2017 while simultaneously executing both the DCM and Hernic platinum and chrome surface processing projects totalling a recorded capital investment for the period under review of GBP 11.18 million (ZAR 190.02 million). Following the period under review the Company further secured through the acquisition agreements both the PlatCro platinum surface project and the RMA surface and near surface copper project while during the same period, the Tjate Platinum Project was awarded a fully executed mining right. The associated transactional costs are captured within the period under review while the potential value realisation will only be reflected in the following reporting period.

Dilokong Chrome Mine Platinum and Chrome Tailings Operation ("DCM operation")

Jubilee's subsidiary, Jubilee Tailings and Treatment Company Proprietary Limited (formerly Pollux Investment Holdings Proprietary Limited), holds the exclusive rights to beneficiate the PGMs and chrome from the platinum and chrome-containing surface material at Dilokong Chrome Mine Pty Limited a subsidiary of ASA Metals Proprietary Limited ("DCM Platinum Project, Processing Agreement").

The Processing Agreement gave Jubilee access to a then estimated 800 000 tons (Sept 2012) of surface material containing 74 000 4E PGM oz. Jubilee commissioned the chromite recovery plant end Q1 2016 reaching stable operations during Q4 2016.

The platinum processing options for the PGM material after the chromite recovery were reviewed following a detailed test program and the preferred option is a combined on-site upgrading of platinum content of PGM material to double approximately the in-situ value prior to toll processing the upgraded PGM material. The Company in discussions to conclude a commercial arrangement for the toll processing of the upgraded PGM material.

The DCM operation commenced processing of 3(rd) party PGM ("Platinum Group Metals")-bearing chromite ore in addition to the processing of tailings material post the period under review in March 2017.

Table below summarises the production and financial performance of the DCM operations for the period under review.

Hernic Ferro Chrome Platinum and Chrome Tailings Operation ("Hernic operations")

Hernic Ferrochrome Proprietary Limited ("Hernic") is the world's 4th largest integrated ferrochrome producer with an estimated 3 million tonnes of platinum containing material at surface while Hernic continues to add further material to the surface stock.

The Hernic Surface Material has been independently drilled and assayed for chrome and PGM content. This has resulted in an independent resource statement of 1.7 million tonnes, of which approximately 90% of the resource is classified in the measured category under the internationally recognised SAMREC code. Hernic also has access to secondary surface stocks, which it has internally identified and could increase the surface stocks to in excess of 3 million tonnes through further drilling programmes. The total project is estimated to contain PGM ounces in excess of 224 000 (3PGM + Au) oz.

The Hernic operation with a feed design processing capacity of 660 000 tonnes per annum will be the largest PGM and chromite beneficiation plant of surface chrome tailings in South Africa. The financial and operational risks of the Project are significantly mitigated since the material is already at surface and requires neither the cost nor the risk associated with mining.

The Hernic operation was undertaken in four phases over an 11 month period; namely

   --      Phase one - Bankable Feasibility Study and Engineering Design.  Completed. 

-- Phase two - Construction of the chrome and platinum processing plant ("Processing Plant"). Completed.

-- Phase three - Commissioning and Ramp up of Processing Plant to design capacity of 55 000 tonnes per month. In Progress.

   --      Phase Four - Stable operation of the Processing Plant. 

The Jubilee chromite recovery plant at Hernic ("CRP") was commissioned and its tie-in into the existing Hernic operations was completed in January 2016. The PGM recovery plant (PGM Plant), which follows process-wise the CRP, was tied in to the CRP post the period under review during February 2017.

Commissioning and ramp-up of the fully integrated Hernic operation commenced in March 2017 with the first platinum production on schedule for delivery by end March 2017.

PlatCro Platinum and Chrome Tailings Project ("PlatCro project")

Post the period under review the Company executed a Framework and Processing of Tailings Agreement ("the Agreement") with PlatCro in March 2017 for the acquisition of new platinum, palladium, rhodium and gold ("4E "or "PGMs") bearing surface material existing at PlatCro as well as all future surface material at PlatCro. The existing surface material is estimated at 1.25 million tonnes with an estimated grade of 2.7 g/t 4E PGMs. This ensured Jubilee the sole right to future earnings from the platinum bearing material.

The PlatCro project will target a processing rate of 25 000 tonnes per month to complement Jubilee's surface tailings platinum production by a further 14,200 ounces of PGMs per annum. This projects a total production target at stable operations of approximately 50 000 ounces of PGMs per annum for Jubilee from all its surface tailings and 3(rd) party ore projects.

Under the Agreement Jubilee will acquire the existing material for a total consideration of GBP 3.13 (ZAR 50.00) per tonne of surface material remaining after on-going further recovery of residual chromite by PlatCro. Approximately 79% of the material is estimated to remain following chromite removal, which equates to a 4E PGM acquisition value of GBP 3.50 million (ZAR 55.40 million).

The Agreement allows for a two-stage payment over an estimated three month period following the conclusion of the Agreement. Future material will be acquired at a value of GBP 3.13 (ZAR 50.00) per tonne of material post chromite removal. The surface material is located within trucking distance of Jubilee's Hernic operation, thereby offering the opportunity to process the additional material at the Company's existing Hernic plant for PGM recovery. Jubilee also holds the option to acquire property located adjacent to the surface material for the construction of a dedicated platinum processing plant, if deemed appropriate, and at Jubilee's election.

Resilience Mining Australia Copper Tailings Project ("RMA project")

Post the period under review the Company executed a binding and exclusive Term Sheet in March 2017 to enter into a transaction ("the Proposed Transaction") with Resilience Mining Australia Limited ("RMA") to explore and develop RMA's Leigh Copper Mine ("LCCM") and other copper Mining Tenements ("the Project Tenements"), collectively owned or held by Leigh Copper Mine Proprietary Limited (the "Project Company"). The Proposed Transaction is subject to conditions precedent including satisfactory due diligence and/or to entering into the transactional agreement ("the Proposed Transaction Agreement" or "the Proposed Commercial Transaction").

The RMA project production forecast of 12,000 tonnes (t) of copper (Cu) at production cost AUD3, 381/t Cu (USD2, 569/t Cu) - Current Cu price USD6, 000/ t Cu. Several of the RMA project Tenements are targeted to be production -ready within four months of the Transaction and able to produce cash flow within 6 month of acquisition. The RMA project holds near surface resources of 35,000 tonnes Cu in combination of JORC compliant category and mineral inventory.

The execution of this Term Sheet demonstrates Jubilee's ability to apply its processing success and expertise in the recovery of platinum and chrome to associated base metals such as copper. The expertise that Jubilee holds in the processing of near surface materials and tailings is easily transferred to minerals that fall within the PGM and Base Metals grouping. Notwithstanding this, the Company's first international project was carefully selected based on risk and reward by avoiding undue execution and financing risk. This targeted copper project located in South Australia not only enables the Company to expand its tailings by country or specific metal but also offers an exciting opportunity to build our presence Australia. The copper arena was selected on the back of strong underlying fundamentals for copper in the short and mid-term. The Company looks forward to executing this project and building on its established Australian presence by seeking further such opportunities.

   2.         MINING AND EXPLORATION PROJECTS 

Tjate Platinum Exploration Project

Post the period under review Tjate executed a mining right ("Mining Right") with the Department of Mineral Resources in respect of the Project comprising the Farms Dsjate 249 KT, Fernkloof 539 KS and Quartzhill 542 KS, situated in the Magisterial District of Sekhukhune in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.

Tjate now has the right to mine and process all platinum group metals, chrome, nickel, copper, gold and certain associated metals and minerals from the Project mining area, subject to Tjate complying with the terms of the Mining Right and alignment to the requirements of the Mining Charter.

* SAMREC COMPLIANT 3PGE +Au ounce indicated plus inferred resource estimate for First Mine area. Based on boreholes and mine resource and geological data, the Company believes an exploration target of some 368 million tonnes (before geological losses) containing 70 million oz 6PGE+Au is possible for the three farms of the Tjate project (announced 4 June 2009).

The Tjate project is located down-dip of Anglo Platinum's Twickenham and Impala Platinum's Marula mines. Tjate's Merensky and UG2 platinum reefs targeted for initial mining lie between 600 meters and 1,000 meters below surface. The property's reefs extend to depths greater than 1,600 meters, offering significant potential to extend or expand production in future.

The preliminary economic study completed on the Tjate project by an independent consultancy calculated a project NPV of USD 1.1 billion for an adjusted USD and ZAR exchange rate of ZAR12 to the USD.

The Tjate project covers 5,140 hectares over three contiguous farms. The area has been independently appraised to contain a potential net 70 million ounces of platinum group elements (PGEs) and gold. This represents the resource targeted for future exploratory drilling.

CHAIRMAN'S OVERVIEW

I am very pleased to report that the period under review has proceeded according to plan and the Company is progressing well with its Mine-to-Metals strategy. The key focus was on our main projects Dilokong and Hernic. The Dilokong project brought the Company into a cash generative state with results increasing month on month: operating performance and financial performance exceeded budgets by significant amounts and the Company positioned itself well to take advantage of improving chromite prices.

The Hernic project construction advanced on budget and on time with only slight delays during the Christmas period which can be very difficult for operators in South Africa. Since the period end, on 6 February 2017, we announced the first commercial chromite production from the Hernic plant and commencement of platinum production in March 2017, which is a significant milestone in the Company's history.

In the last Chairman's statement I mentioned that the Board had decided to pursue its tailings mission in other areas of the world complementing the strong position we have built in the Bushveld complex. I am pleased to say that on 9 March 2017 we announced our first tailings transaction outside South Africa. Our first acquisition has been to enter into a transaction with Resilience Mining Australia whose operation is some 200 km north of Adelaide. The transaction involves the treating of tailings dumps, some primary mining leases as well as significant copper exploration potential. The size of the acquisition is relatively small but consistent with our policy to take measured risk steps towards achieving our bigger goal. We are looking at a number of other transactions in various other commodities but will not make acquisition decisions until we are sure of the operating and financial risk. We continue to balance our growth in earnings and access to project funding with further acquisitions to minimise the need for equity based financing and risk of dilution for our shareholders.

After the period end, on 2 March 2017, we announced that our Tjate platinum company was awarded its mining right for its eastern Bushveld platinum project, which I believe is one the largest platinum projects in the world not currently being developed or exploited. This project was the foundation of Jubilee and the Board is particularly pleased that the value enhancing mining right has now been awarded.

Again post balance sheet on 17 March 2017 we made a significant surface material acquisition which is complementary to our Hernic project and has the potential to take our annual production rate to 50,000 oz of PGM's. This is a significant figure when one considers that all of our platinum will be without hard rock mining risk, which is the key component in operating and capital costs. This fact makes the Company's production resilient to even lower platinum prices and a major beneficiary of improvement in platinum pricing.

We are looking at a number of new projects with the criteria being quick into production, low in risk and with a capital return in under two years.

The prospects for junior resources companies appear to be improving and companies with good projects and management are receiving financing of a larger size allowing them to undertake more meaningful technical work and advance their projects into feasibility or production. This is a very pleasing turn of fortunes for the industry and the board remains hopeful this turn continues in 2017.

Whilst this is an interim report, I believe it is wholly appropriate that the executive team be congratulated for their tenacity and resilience in bringing to fruition all of the positive developments contained in this report. I look forward to an exciting remainder of 2017 with more acquisitions to report and a rapid increase in our earnings growth.

   4.   Unaudited results 

These interim results have not been reviewed or audited by the Group's auditors.

   5.   Commitments and contingencies 

There are no material contingent assets or liabilities as at 31 December 2016.

   6.   Dividends 

No dividends were declared during the period under review (2015: nil).

   7.   Board 

There were no changes to the board during the period under review.

   8.   Business segments 

In the opinion of the Directors, the continued operations of the Group companies comprise four reporting segments, being:

-- the evaluation and development of PGM smelters utilising exclusive commercialisation rights of the ConRoast smelting process, located in South Africa ("PGM processing");

-- the evaluation of the reclamation and processing of sulphide nickel tailings at BHP Billiton's Leinster, Kambalda and Mount Keith properties in Australia ("Nickel tailings");

-- the exploration and development of Platinum Group Elements ("PGEs") and associated metals ("PGE development") in South Africa ("Exploration and development");

-- The parent company operates a head office based in the United Kingdom which incurred certain administration and corporate costs ("Other operations").

The discontinued operations of the Group companies comprise:

-- Base Metal Smelting in South Africa; and

-- Electricity Generation in South Africa.

The Group's operations span five countries, South Africa, Australia, Madagascar, Mauritius and the United Kingdom. There is no difference between the accounting policies applied in the segment reporting and those applied in the Group financial statements. Mauritius and Madagascar do not meet the qualitative threshold under IFRS 8, consequently no separate reporting is provided.
