Update on Activities
The Company has received its Registro de Estabelecimento permit from the Ministry of Agriculture (“MAPA”) for the production of fertilizers at the Santiago Project. The permit is issued on a renewable, five year term. The Company is continuing to work with MAPA for the registration of its various products, as well as the relevant agencies for its permanent mining licence.
FENGRO produces phosphate rock from its Direct Application Natural Fertilizer (“DANF”) Santiago Project in Tocantins State, Brazil (“Santiago Project”) and has assembled a first class management team and board, giving it a significant project development and operational capacity in Brazil, and continues to actively pursue opportunities for increasing shareholder value through organic growth and corporate transactions. Having restructured its business and re-started extraction and sales of its DANF products in 2017, the Company has delivered in line with its budget for the first six months of 2018, although the recent national strike by truck drivers in Brazil has disrupted the normal agricultural purchasing cycle and will have some impact on deliveries for July. The Company will update shareholders as appropriate.

Disclosure – The Company’s decision to produce DANF, its DANF production targets and cash flow projections were not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability. Without a technical report demonstrating economic and technical viability, there is uncertainty as to whether the Company will be able to economically produce DANF in the long run and as to whether the Company will be confronted with any unforeseen technical impediments. The Company has now completed a preliminary economic assessment.
Disclosure – Note that the DANF PEA is preliminary in nature as it includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability, and as such there is no certainty that the preliminary assessment and economics will be realized.
