 Zulu Lithium Plant Update

 

The Board of Premier African Minerals Limited ("Premier" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on plant operations at Zulu Lithium and Tantalum ("Zulu").

 

The plant is now running, and concentrates are being produced from both Mica and Spodumene flotation sections. Analysis of the concentrates is underway. Several issues need attention by the plant contractors that are affecting both quantity and quality of production. Most important is that instrumentation related to pH measurement does not cover all plant components that need to be monitored and the reagent dosing system is unable to adjust pH to design specifications. The plant contractor will need to remedy this forthwith. Premier is however encouraged that initial spot analysis by Zulu's internal laboratory on the material transferred to the spodumene flotation plant has indicated a concentrate of 6.1% Li2O is potentially achievable from current ROM ore.

 

George Roach, CEO, commented, "Premier believes that we are getting there. Not as quickly as Premier had hoped and with more unnecessary remedial issues than Premier had anticipated.

 

Premier therefore remains simultaneously encouraged and frustrated. Further updates will follow".
