The Lake Way Transaction is subject to various conditions, as set out below.

The Lake Way Transaction will strengthen Blackham’s balance sheet, lower its mining costs as it progresses its strategy associated with its Sulphide Expansion Project to unlock the large sulphide reserves and resources at Wiluna.”
