DIRECTORS' REPORT

30 JUNE 2020

The Directors of Prairie Mining Limited present their report on the Consolidated Entity consisting of Prairie Mining Limited ("Company" or "Prairie") and the entities it controlled at the end of, or during, the year ended 30 June 2020 ("Consolidated Entity" or "Group").

OPERATING AND FINANCIAL REVIEW

Operations

Highlights during, and since the end of the financial year include:

-- Prairie has now formally commenced with international arbitration claims ("Claim") by serving Notices of Arbitration under both the Energy Charter Treaty and the Australia-Poland Bilateral Investment Treaty ("Treaties") on the Republic of Poland

The Claim will allege that the Republic of Poland has breached its obligations under the Treaties through its actions to block the development of the Company's Jan Karksi and Debiensko mines in Poland

The Republic of Poland's actions have deprived Prairie the entire value of its investments in Poland

Claim for damages may include but is not limited to the value of Prairie's historic expenditure in developing both the Jan Karski and Debiensko mines, lost profits and damages, which is linked to the net present value of both mines, and accrued interest related to any damages

-- Prairie secured A$18 million of litigation funding to pursue its damages Claim against the Polish government

Prairie signed a Litigation Funding Agreement ("LFA") with a subsidiary of London listed Litigation Capital Management Limited ("LCM") to pursue the Claim against the Republic of Poland

The LFA facility is available for immediate draw down and provides funding to cover legal, tribunal and external expert costs and defined operating expenses associated with the Claim

A$18 million was provided as a limited recourse facility, being repayable in the event that the damages award is recovered from the Republic of Poland

-- Completed a Share Purchase Plan ("SPP") to raise A$4 million (before costs) for working capital requirements and business development opportunities

-- During the year, Prairie continued to identify and assess other suitable business opportunities in the resources sector

Dispute with Polish Government

On 1 July 2020, Prairie announced it had executed a LFA for A$18m (US$12.3m) with LCM Funding UK Limited (a subsidiary of LCM). The facility is available for immediate draw down for Prairie to pursue damages claims in relation to the investment dispute between Prairie and the Polish Government that has arisen out of certain measures taken by Poland in breach of the Treaties.

On 9 September 2020, the Company announced that it has now formally commenced with the Claim by serving the Notices of Arbitration against the Republic of Poland.

Prairie's dispute alleges that the Republic of Poland has breached its obligations under both domestic law and the applicable Treaties through its actions to block the development of the Company's Jan Karksi and Debiensko mines in Poland which effectively deprives Prairie of the entire value of its investments in Poland.

In February 2019, Prairie formally notified the Polish Government that there exists an investment dispute between Prairie and the Polish Government. Prairie's notification called for prompt negotiations with the Government to amicably resolve the dispute and indicated Prairie's right to submit the dispute to international arbitration in the event of the dispute not being resolved amicably. The Company remains open to resolving the dispute with the Polish Government amicably. However, as of the date of this report, no amicable resolution of the dispute has occurred, since the Polish Government has declined to participate in discussions related to the dispute and accordingly the Company has formerly submitted its Claim as discussed above.

The quantum of any Claim for compensation may include, but will not be limited to:

-- the value of Prairie's historic expenditure in developing both the Jan Karski and Debiensko mines;

-- Lost profits and damages that the Company has suffered as a result of Poland's acts and omissions which have resulted in the expropriation of both the Jan Karski and Debiensko mines, which is linked to the considerable net present value of both mines at the time of Poland's international treaty breaches; and

-- Accrued interest related to any damages award and all costs associated with pursuing the Claims to Arbitration.

The Company is not able to make any further comment in relation to the potential quantum of any claim for compensation at this point.

Please refer to ASX announcements dated 26 April 2018, 28 May 2018, 18 January 2019, 13 February 2019, 4 April 2019 and 31 December 2019 for further details regarding the Company's dispute with the Republic of Poland.

Prairie's investment dispute with the Republic of Poland is not unique, with international media widely reporting that the political environment and investment climate in Poland has deteriorated since the change in Government in 2015. As a result, there are a significant number of International arbitration claims being bought against Poland in the natural resources and energy sectors with damages claims ranging from US$120 million to over US$1.3 billion and includes Bluegas NRG Holding (gas), Lumina Copper (copper) and InvEnergy (wind farms).

Background to the Jan Karski Mine

The Jan Karski mine is a large scale semi-soft coking coal project located in the Lublin Coal Basin in south east Poland. The Lublin Coal Basin is an established coal producing province which is well serviced by modern and highly efficient infrastructure, offering the potential for low capital intensity mine development. Jan Karski is situated adjacent to the Bogdanka coal mine which has been in commercial production since 1982 and is the lowest cost hard coal producer in Europe.

Key benefits for the local community and the Lublin and Chelm regions associated with the development, construction and operation of Jan Karski have been recognised as the following:

-- creation of 2,000 direct employment positions and 10,000 indirect jobs for the region once operational;

-- increasing skills of the workforce through the implementation of International Standard training programmes;

-- stimulating the development of education, health services and communications within the region; and

-- building a mine that creates new employment for generations to come and career paths for families to remain in the region.

In March 2016, Prairie released the results of a JORC compliant Pre-Feasibility Study (" PFS") for the Jan Karski mine prepared by independent international mining consultancies Golder Associates and Royal HaskoningDHV. The PFS demonstrated the technical viability and robust economics of Jan Karski to be developed as a large scale long life strategic coal supplier. Further details about the PFS are contained in the Company's announcement dated 8 March 2016.

Background to the Debiensko Mine

The Debiensko mine, is a premium hard coking coal project located in the Upper Silesian Coal Basin in the south west of the Republic of Poland. It is approximately 40 km from the city of Katowice and 40 km from the Czech Republic.

Debiensko is bordered by the Knurow-Szczyglowice Mine in the north west and the Budryk Mine in the north east, both owned and operated by Jastrz bska Spó ka W glowa SA ("JSW"), Europe's leading producer of hard coking coal.

The Debiensko mine was historically operated by various Polish mining companies until 2000 when mining operations were terminated due to a major government led restructuring of the coal sector caused by a downturn in global coal prices. In early 2006 New World Resources Plc ("NWR") acquired Debiensko and commenced planning for Debiensko to comply with Polish mining standards, with the aim of accessing and mining hard coking coal seams. In 2008, the Polish Ministry of Environment ("MoE") granted a 50-year mine license for Debiensko.

In October 2016, Prairie acquired Debiensko with a view that a revised development approach would potentially allow for the early mining of profitable premium hard coking coal seams, whilst minimising upfront capital costs.

In March 2017, Prairie released the results of a JORC compliant Scoping Study prepared by independent international mining consultancy Royal HaskoningDHV. The Scoping Study demonstrated the technical viability and robust economics for the fully permitted Debiensko mine to be a large scale, lowest cost and long life premium hard coking coal supplier. Further details of the Scoping Study are contained in the Company's announcement dated 16 March 2017.

Share Purchase Plan

Subsequent to the end of the year, the Company completed a SPP to raise A$4 million before costs for working capital requirements and business development opportunities.

Results of Operations

The net loss of the Consolidated Entity for the year ended 30 June 2020 was $3,307,600 (2019: $3,550,672). Significant items contributing to the current year loss and the substantial differences from the previous financial year include:

(i) Arbitration related costs of $906,036 (2019: nil) relating to preparation of the Claim that was formally served on the Republic of Poland subsequent to the end of the year;

(ii) Exploration and Evaluation expenses of $1,854,827 (2019: $3,319,878), which is attributable to the Group's accounting policy of expensing exploration and evaluation expenditure incurred by the Group subsequent to the acquisition of rights to explore and up to the commencement of a bankable feasibility study for each separate area of interest;

(iii) Non-cash exploration expenditure impairment expense of nil (2019: $2,721,198) was recognised during the in the prior year following the Republic of Poland's actions which the Company believes has breached its obligations under both domestic law and the Treaties through its actions to block the development of the Company's Jan Karksi and Debiensko mines in Poland which which effectively deprives Prairie of the entire value of its investments in Poland ;

(iv) Business development expenses of $299,241 (2019: $408,948) which includes expenses in relation to the costs associated with looking for new business opportunities, including execution of the LCM financing facility, and the Group's investor relations activities, including brokerage fees, public relations, digital marketing, travel costs, attendances at conferences and business development consultant costs;

(v) Non-cash share-based payment expense of $163,613 (2019: reversal of $1,599,118) due to incentive securities issued to key management personnel and other key employees and consultants of the Group as part of the long-term incentive plan to reward key management personnel and other key employees and consultants for the long term performance of the Group. The expense/reversal results from the Group's accounting policy of expensing the fair value (determined using an appropriate pricing model) of incentive securities granted on a straight-line basis over the vesting period of the options and rights. The change to an expense in 2020 from a reversal in 2019 is attributable to the forfeiture of 3.1 million unvested performance rights in 2019 following the impairment of exploration and evaluation discussed above. In 2019 it was determined that the performance rights with vesting conditions milestones relating to Debiensko and Jan Karski were unachievable resulting in $3.4 million being reversed from the reserve to profit and loss;

(vi) Revenue of $456,726 (2019: $557,400) consisting of interest income of $60,423 (2019: $203,160) and the receipt of $396,303 (2019: $354,170) of gas and property lease income derived at Debiensko; and

(vii) Other income of nil (2019: $1,945,800) relating to the gain on extinguishment of the contingent consideration in 2019 related to the Karbonia acquisition following the receipt of a final "second instance" decision from the MoE that denied the Mining Concession amendment application at Debiensko which was a condition for Prairie to pay the contingent consideration.

Financial Position

At 30 June 2020, the Company had cash reserves of $2,566,518 (2019: $6,628,371). With the A$18 million LFA facility now in place and the SPP completed subsequent to the end of the, the Company is in a strong financial position to continue with the Claim and business development activities.

At 30 June 2020, the Company had net assets of $3,998,552 (2019: $7,308,588), a decrease of 56% compared with the previous year. This is largely attributable to the decrease in cash and net loss for the year.

Business Strategies and Prospects for Future Financial Years

Prairie's strategy is to create long-term shareholder value. This now includes pursuing the Claim against the Republic of Poland through international arbitration.

As discussed throughout this report, various measures directed against Prairie by the Polish government in breach of Polish and international law with respect to the Company's permitting process and licenses, have blocked Prairie's pathway to any future production from its Polish projects.

To achieve its objective, the Group currently has the following business strategies and prospects:

-- Continue to enforce its rights through an established and enforceable legal framework in relation to international arbitration for the investment dispute between Prairie and the Polish Government that has arisen out of certain measures taken by Poland in breach of the Treaties;

   --       Continue to assess corporate options for Prairie's investments in Poland; and 
   --       Identify and assess other suitable business opportunities in the resources sector. 

All of these activities are inherently risky and the Board is unable to provide certainty of the expected results of these activities, or that any or all of these likely activities will be achieved. Furthermore, Prairie will continue to take all necessary actions to pursue the Company's legal rights regarding its investments in Poland, if and as required. The material business risks faced by the Group that could have an effect on the Group's future prospects, and how the Group manages these risks, include the following:

-- Litigation risk - All industries, including the mining industry, are subject to legal and arbitration claims. Specifically and subsequent to the end of the year, the Company formally commenced its Claim following lodgement of its notices of arbitration with against the Republic of Poland. Prairie will strongly defend its position and continue to take all relevant actions to pursue its legal rights regarding both the Debiensko and Jan Karski projects. There is however no certainty that the Claim will be successful. If the Claim is unsuccessful, then this may have a material impact on the value of the Company's securities.

-- The Company may be adversely affected by fluctuations in foreign exchange - Current and planned activities are predominantly denominated in Stirling and/or Euros and the Company's ability to fund these activates may be adversely affected if the Australian dollar continues to fall against these currencies. The Company currently does not engage in any hedging or derivative transactions to manage foreign exchange risk. As the Company's operations change, this policy will be reviewed periodically going forward.

-- The Company may not successfully acquire new projects - the Company may pursue and assess other new business opportunities in the resources sector. These new business opportunities may take the form of direct project acquisitions, joint ventures, farm-ins, acquisition of tenements/permits, or direct equity participation. The Company's success in its acquisition activities depends on its ability to identify suitable projects, acquire them on acceptable terms, and integrate the projects successfully, which the Company's Board is experienced in doing. However, there can be no guarantee that any proposed acquisition will be completed or be successful. If a proposed acquisition is completed the usual risks associated with a new project and/or business activities will remain.

ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION AND PERFORMANCE

The Group's operations are subject to various environmental laws and regulations under the relevant government's legislation. Full compliance with these laws and regulations is regarded as a minimum standard for all operations to achieve.

Instances of environmental non-compliance by an operation are identified either by external compliance audits or inspections by relevant government authorities.

There have been no significant known breaches by the Group during the financial year.

DIVIDS

No dividends were paid or declared since the start of the financial year. No recommendation for payment of dividends has been made (2019: nil).

SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE STATE OF AFFAIRS

There were no significant changes in the state of affairs of the Group during the year other than the following:

(i) On 31 December 2019, Bogdanka announced that the Polish Government had awarded Bogdanka a mining concession for the K6-7 coal deposit in Lublin. The K6-7 deposit had previously formed an integral part of Prairie's Lublin concession at Jan Karski.

REMUNERATION REPORT (AUDITED)

This Remuneration Report, which forms part of the Directors' Report, sets out information about the remuneration of Key Management Personnel ("KMP") of the Group.

Details of Key Management Personnel

Details of the KMP of the Group during or since the end of the financial year are set out below:

Directors

   Mr Ian Middlemas                  Chairman 
   Mr Benjamin Stoikovich        Director and CEO 
   Ms Carmel Daniele               Non-Executive Director 
   Mr Thomas Todd                    Non-Executive Director 
   Mr Mark Pearce                      Non-Executive Director 
   Mr Todd Hannigan                 Alternate Director 

Other KMP

   Mr Miroslaw Taras                 Group Executive - Poland 
   Mr Simon Kersey                   Chief Financial Officer 
   Mr Dylan Browne                   Company Secretary 

Unless otherwise disclosed, the KMP held their position from 1 July 2019 until the date of this report.

Remuneration Policy

The Group's remuneration policy for its KMP has been developed by the Board taking into account the size of the Group, the size of the management team for the Group, the nature and stage of development of the Group's current operations, and market conditions and comparable salary levels for companies of a similar size and operating in similar sectors. In addition to considering the above general factors, the Board has also placed emphasis on the following specific issues in determining the remuneration policy for KMP:

(a) the Group is currently focused on undertaking exploration, appraisal and development activities;

(b) risks associated with small cap resource companies whilst exploring and developing projects; and

(c) other than profit which may be generated from asset sales, the Company does not expect to be undertaking profitable operations until sometime after the commencement of commercial production on any of its projects.

Executive Remuneration

The Group's remuneration policy is to provide a fixed remuneration component and a performance-based component (short term incentive and long term incentive). The Board believes that this remuneration policy is appropriate given the considerations discussed in the section above and is appropriate in aligning executives' objectives with shareholder and business objectives.

Fixed Remuneration

Fixed remuneration consists of base salaries, as well as employer contributions to superannuation funds and other non-cash benefits. Non-cash benefits may include provision of car parking and health care benefits.

Fixed remuneration is reviewed annually by the Board. The process consists of a review of company and individual performance, relevant comparative remuneration externally and internally and, where appropriate, external advice on policies and practices.

Performance Based Remuneration - Short Term Incentive ("STI")

Some executives are entitled to an annual cash incentive payment upon achieving various key performance indicators ("KPI's"), as set by the Board. Having regard to the current size, nature and opportunities of the Company, the Board has determined that these KPI's will include measures such as successful commencement and/or completion of exploration activities (e.g. commencement/completion of exploration programs within budgeted timeframes and costs), establishment of government relationship (e.g. establish and maintain sound working relationships with government and officialdom), development activities (e.g. completion of infrastructure studies and commercial agreements), corporate activities (e.g. recruitment of key personnel and representation of the company at international conferences) and business development activities (e.g. corporate transactions and capital raisings). These measures were chosen as the Board believes they represent the key drivers in the short and medium-term success of the Company's development. On an annual basis, and subsequent to year end, the Board assesses performance against each individual executive's KPI criteria. During the 2020 financial year, no cash incentive (2019: nil) was paid, or is payable, to KMP.

Performance Based Remuneration - Long Term Incentive

The Group has adopted a long-term incentive plan ("LTIP") comprising the grant of Performance Rights and/or Incentive Options to reward KMP and key employees and contractors for long-term performance of the Company. Shareholders approved the renewal of a Performance Rights Plan" (the "Plan") on 17 August 2017.

To achieve its corporate objectives, the Group needs to attract, incentivise, and retain its key employees and contractors. The Board believes that grants of Performance Rights and/or Incentive Options to KMP will provide a useful tool to underpin the Group's employment and engagement strategy.

   (i)            Performance Rights 

The Group has a Plan that provides for the issuance of unlisted Performance Rights which, upon satisfaction of the relevant performance conditions attached to the Performance Rights, will result in the issue of an Ordinary Share for each Performance Right. Performance Rights are issued for no consideration and no amount is payable upon conversion thereof.

The Plan enables the Group to: (a) recruit, incentivise and retain KMP and other key employees and contractors needed to achieve the Group's business objectives; (b) link the reward of key staff with the achievement of strategic goals and the long-term performance of the Group; (c) align the financial interests of participants of the Plan with those of Shareholders; and (d) provide incentives to participants of the Plan to focus on superior performance that creates Shareholder value.

Performance Rights granted under the Plan to eligible participants will be linked to the achievement by the Company of certain performance conditions as determined by the Board from time to time. These performance conditions must be satisfied in order for the Performance Rights to vest. The Performance Rights also vest where there is a change of control of the Company. Upon Performance Rights vesting, Ordinary Shares are automatically issued for no consideration. If a performance condition of a Performance Right is not achieved by the expiry date then the Performance Right will lapse.

During the financial year, 900,000 Performance Rights were granted to certain KMP. 1,100,000 Performance Rights previously granted to KMP were forfeited during the financial year.

   (ii)           Incentive Options 

The Group has also chosen to issue Incentive Options to some KMP and key employees and contractors as part of their remuneration and incentive arrangements in order to attract and retain them and to provide an incentive linked to the performance of the Company.

The Board's policy is to grant Incentive Options to KMP with exercise prices at or above market share price (at the time of agreement). As such, any Incentive Options granted to KMP are generally only of benefit if the KMP performed to the level whereby the value of the Group increased sufficiently to warrant exercising the Incentive Options granted.

Other than service-based vesting conditions (if any), there are generally no additional performance criteria attached to any Incentive Options granted to KMP, as given the speculative nature of the Group's activities and the small management team responsible for its running, it is considered that the performance of the KMP and the performance and value of the Group are closely related.

The Company prohibits executives entering into arrangements to limit their exposure to Incentive Options and Performance Rights granted as part of their remuneration package.

During the financial year, no Incentive Options were granted to KMP and key employees. No Incentive Options were exercised by KMP during the financial year. No Incentive Options previously granted to KMP lapsed during the financial year.

Subsequent to the end of the year and following the LFA with LCM being signed, the Company established a Management Incentive Program ("MIP") which is a LTIP to retain key company personnel who have important historical information and knowledge to contribute towards the Claim. The MIP provides that if the Claim is successful and the Company receives damages proceeds, 6% of these proceeds will be directed to the MIP for distribution to its participants. The MIP requires that each participant must satisfy specific Claim related duties and if they do so, each participant may be entitled to a pre-defined percentage of the proceeds received by the MIP. In this regard, of the 6% of any future Claim proceeds, Mr Stoikovich (or his nominee personal services entity) will be entitled to 30% of the MIP distribution (ie 30% of the 6% Claim proceeds), Mr Kersey (or his nominee personal services entity) will be entitled to 20% of the MIP distribution (ie 20% of the 6% Claim proceeds), Mr Taras will be entitled to 10% of the MIP distribution (ie 10% of the 6% Claim proceeds) and Mr Pearce and Mr Browne will each be entitled to 7.5% of the MIP distribution (ie 7.5% of the 6% Claim proceeds). The remaining 25% of the MIP distribution has been allocated to other key staff who will contribute to the Claim.

Non-Executive Director Remuneration

The Board's policy is for fees to Non-Executive Directors to be no greater than market rates for comparable companies for time, commitment and responsibilities. Given the current size, nature and risks of the Company, Incentive Options may also be used to attract and retain Non-Executive Directors. The Board determines payments to the Non-Executive Directors and reviews their remuneration annually, based on market practice, duties and accountability. Independent external advice is sought when required.

The maximum aggregate amount of fees that can be paid to Non-Executive Directors is subject to approval by shareholders at a General Meeting. Director's fees paid to Non-Executive Directors accrue on a daily basis. Fees for Non-Executive Directors are not linked to the performance of the economic entity. However, to align Directors' interests with shareholder interests, the Directors are encouraged to hold shares in the Company and given the current size, nature and opportunities of the Company, Non-Executive Directors may receive Incentive Options in order to secure and retain their services.

Fees for the Chairman were set at $36,000 per annum (2019: $36,000) (excluding post-employment benefits).

Fees for Non-Executive Directors' were set at $20,000 per annum (2019: $20,000) (excluding post-employment benefits). These fees cover main board activities only. Non-Executive Directors may receive additional remuneration for other services provided to the Company, including but not limited to, membership of committees.

During the 2020 financial year, no Incentive Options or Performance Rights were granted to Non-Executive Directors.

The Company prohibits Non-Executive Directors entering into arrangements to limit their exposure to Incentive Options granted as part of their remuneration package.

Relationship between Remuneration of KMP and Shareholder Wealth

During the Company's exploration and development phases of its business, the Board anticipates that the Company will retain earnings (if any) and other cash resources for the exploration and development of its resource projects. Accordingly, the Company does not currently have a policy with respect to the payment of dividends and returns of capital. Therefore, there was no relationship between the Board's policy for determining, or in relation to, the nature and amount of remuneration of KMP and dividends paid and returns of capital by the Company during the current and previous four financial years.

The Board did not determine, and in relation to, the nature and amount of remuneration of the KMP by reference to changes in the price at which shares in the Company traded between the beginning and end of the current and the previous four financial years. Discretionary annual cash incentive payments are based upon achieving various non-financial key performance indicators as detailed under "Performance Based Remuneration - Short Term Incentive" and are not based on share price or earnings. However, as noted above, certain KMP may receive Incentive Options in the future which generally will be of greater value to KMP if the value of the Company's shares increases sufficiently to warrant exercising the Incentive Options.

Relationship between Remuneration of KMP and Earnings

As discussed above, the Company is currently undertaking exploration and development activities, and does not expect to be undertaking profitable operations (other than by way of material asset sales, none of which is currently planned) until sometime after the successful commercialisation, production and sales of commodities from one or more of its projects. Accordingly, the Board does not consider earnings during the current and previous four financial years when determining, and in relation to, the nature and amount of remuneration of KMP.
