    Dear Sir/Madam,
    The Directors of Sherlock Bay Nickel Corporation Limited (SBNC) advise that the
    results of independent metallurgical test work carried out as part of the Bankable
    Feasibility Study (BFS) have provided a materially higher recovery rate than had been
    estimated in initial scoping work that has previously been released to the market.
    At this time two sets of metallurgical tests using the Bio Leach method have been
    completed with a third proprietary leaching test in the final stages. The results of the
    two completed tests have given a very significant 88% Ni recovery rate together with,
    what the company considers, a relatively short leaching time of 37 days. The
    directors consider this to be an outstanding result, as potential increases in recovery
    have a significant result on project economics.
    In the context of the scoping study this result is well ahead of the recovery rates that
    were used. A recovery rate of 75% Ni was used in the scoping study.
    SBNC still has further test work in progress and further results will be announced as
    they come to hand. While using a different bacterial technology, at this time SBNC
    has no cause to believe that these results will vary materially adversely to those
    obtained to date.
    The full BFS is scheduled for completion by the end of the March quarter with a full
    market update to be provided at that time on the project.

    Managing Director
