The board of directors of the Company determined that it would be desirable for the Company to change its name to reflect the South African focus of the Company following the acquisition of the Bokoni Mine.

The name change is expected to take effect following the requisite regulatory filings by the Company and such effective date will be announced by the Company at the relevant time.
