will continue to test over the coming months;

• Blackstone attracted a $6.8 million investment at a 62% premium from EcoPro, Korea’s largest cathode manufacturer, through a placement of 40 million fully paid ordinary shares at an issue price of $0.17 per share.

• The binding agreement outlines an alliance structure whereby EcoPro and Blackstone Minerals will work in partnership (through an additional investment via a Joint Venture Agreement) to develop a downstream processing facility in association with Blackstone Minerals’ Ta Khoa Nickel-Copper-PGE Project in northern Vietnam.

• The deal was completed with the appointment of Hoirim Jung as a Non-Executive Director to Blackstone’s board.

• Blackstone exercised the option to acquire a 90% interest in the Ta Khoa Nickel-Copper-PGE Project in Northern Vietnam by executing the binding option agreement to purchase AMR Nickel Limited’s 90% interest in the project as per the ASX announcement dated 8th May 2019.

• Blackstone appointed experienced business development and investor relations executive Patrick Chang as Corporate Development Officer.
