Overview

In the period under review, the Company achieved significant milestones in the implementation of its Mine-to-Metals strategy to form a fully-integrated platinum mining Company.

The Company commissioned the First Phase of its DCM Tailings Project, reaching stable production in April 2016 while simultaneously commencing with the construction of the Hernic Tailings Project, targeting a combined processing in          excess of 900 000 tonnes per annum of Platinum Tailings over the two Tailings Projects. The Company executed the cash sale of its non-core Ferro-alloy smelting operations ("Middelburg Operations") for a gross value of approximately £5.3 million (ZAR110.5 million), and redirected the funds towards the acquisition and commissioning of its platinum and chrome tailings projects.

The First Phase of the DCM Tailings Project targeted the production of a chromite concentrate while concurrently the Company concluded a detailed platinum processing option study. The option study was concluded post the period under review. The option study indicated the optimal strategy should include pre-concentration at DCM of the platinum in the chrome tailings and contracting with an existing platinum producer to upgrade further the platinum pre-concentrate in order to produce a saleable platinum concentrate. The Company engaged with a targeted toll processor to implement this preferred platinum processing strategy at DCM. Post year-end the DCM Tailings Project has continued to exceed the design specifications, reaching a production at the end of Q3 of the 2016 calendar year of 43 747 tonnes of saleable chromite concentrate, generating total revenues of £3.1 million (ZAR56.5 million).

The Company successfully completed a project funding agreement (the "Funding") for the execution and commissioning of its two platinum Tailings Projects.

The Funding comprised the combination of Senior Secured Debt (to a maximum of USD10 million), Unsecured Debt (to a maximum of USD5.3 million) and an equity placing (£2.3 million). This Funding package enabled Jubilee to execute simultaneously the two platinum Tailings Projects, while still pursuing the acquisition or securing of further surface or shallow platinum-bearing opportunities. These two Tailings Projects have grown the Company's access to, in excess of 4 million tonnes, of platinum-containing surface material.

The Hernic Tailings Project reached 45% completion at year-end with the Project expenditure equalling £4.5 million (ZAR 88.5 million). Post year-end and at the end of Q3 of the 2016 calendar year the Project had reached a completion of 71% with the un-audited Project expenditure reaching £7.5 million (ZAR137.6 million).

The Company's Tjate project progressed with the implementation of a Rehabilitation Guarantee Policy bond for £1.5 million (ZAR27 million) in terms of the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act ("MPRDA") of South Africa. Tjate continues to await the execution of the mining right by the Department of Minerals and Resources ("DMR").

Jubilee executed a binding cash sale agreement, in aggregate of approximately £5.3 million (ZAR110.5 million) gross for its Middelburg operational assets, the disposal of which was approved by shareholders at a general meeting on 7 August 2015.

During the period under review the Company successfully managed its expenditure by selling its non-core assets and channelling the proceeds into the more profitable platinum Tailings Projects, thereby enabling the Company to grow its near-term earnings potential. The Company continues to actively pursue further projects consistent with our stated mission to grow the Company's processing capacity of at- or near-surface platinum bearing material.

The Company looks forward to bringing into operation its two platinum Tailings Projects within the current financial period while continuing to grow its revenue base and earnings projections and advancing its project portfolio.

Conditions in the global markets remained challenging as reflected in the platinum group metal ("PGM") prices. However, Jubilee's Platinum Tailings Projects remain robust at these metal prices; having the benefit of not being exposed to mining cost or associated mining risk.

The Company successfully responded to the current challenges and risks inherent to an exploration and production business and will continue to formulate preventative measures.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Chairman's statement

Dear Shareholder,

 

The theme of last year's report was that the resource industry in general was experiencing very difficult times with commodity prices and difficulty in accessing finance for survival, let alone growth. Towards the end of my report I stated that the Jubilee management team would not be intimidated by these difficult times and would continue with its Mine-to-Metals strategy despite the conditions.

 

I am very pleased to report that the management team did respond well to their challenges and Jubilee has made significant steps towards overall profitability and establishing a prominent emerging position in the South African platinum industry. Significantly we secured the Hernic project in December 2015 and completed building the Dilokong chromite recovery section in February 2016. The completion of these two projects will result in the Company having a process capacity capable of producing some 33 000 oz of platinum per annum with considerable contribution from chrome in the case of Dilokong.

We were successful in accessing finance for these two projects with the combination of debt and equity; this financing being achieved when the industry was still experiencing great difficult in accessing finance of any kind.

 

We continue, proactively and reactively, to search for new business additions to our model and feel confident that we will make gains in this area. We also recognise that a chrome/platinum dump mission in a finite environment can be self-limiting and therefore have expanded our investigations into other metals and other areas. We have recognised and it has been recognised within our industry, that the Company possesses considerable internal technical strength for dump re-treatment projects and outside the Company, has created a good strategic network to identify, investigate and financially interrogate what would be future dump retreatment projects. We intend to grow on these strengths for the balance of this year and into 2017.

 

We are somewhat disappointed that platinum has been so resilient at its lower levels and the much expected breakout in a positive way did not occur. I have been cynical over the link between gold and platinum and have often stated that the coupling has little sense since platinum is a commodity and should therefore respond to supply and demand fundamentals. More new cars have been sold within the developed and emerging world and yet the platinum price has continued to remain at around a USD1 000 per oz mark with moderate increases and decreases. Unlike other metals, platinum produced is sold without evidence of any significant inventories being built up which can distort the price or lead to price manipulation. The board sees a healthy market for platinum with expectation of higher prices but is confident of making good returns on investment at current platinum price levels. Our chrome operation at Dilokong has benefited considerably by increased prices for chrome and we are encouraged by our effort and opportunities in the local chrome arena.

 

On a more general note, the resource sector appears to be ready to move back to being a favoured sector as opposed to the

"Cinderella" of stock markets. My experience has been that such changing sentiment can be rapid and management should not be caught asleep when they sense the change. I believe that significant opportunities can avail to Jubilee within its stated mission and an extension of that mission. Financing potential has definitely improved and now there exist considerable financial interest for new projects held by a strong management team with a track record.

 

The Group reported a loss per share for the year ended 30 June 2016 on continuing operations of 0.38 pence (ZAR cents 8.07) a reduction of 15.6% on last year and a loss per share on discontinued operations for the three months to 30 September 2016 of 0.03 pence (ZAR cents 0.67) (2015: loss per share on continuing operations of 0.45 pence (ZAR cents 8.12) and a loss per share on discontinued operations for the year ending 30 June 2015 of 0.10 pence (ZAR cents 1.76)).

 

Finally I would like to thank my fellow directors and particularly the executive directors who have performed extremely well in

securing the two assets and positioning the company within South Africa. I would also like to thank management and external consultants who have integrated as individuals and companies into our business plan. I look forward to an exciting 2017 and expect to be announcing more acquisitions and accelerated growth, all designed to enhance shareholder value.

This charge relates to equity placings successfully completed.

 

7.  Business segments

 

In the opinion of the Directors, the continuing operations of the Group companies comprise four reporting segments (of which the descriptions have been changed to better reflect the Group's strategy of becoming a platinum producer post the Disposal) being:

•   the beneficiation of Platinum Group Elements ("PGEs") and associated metals and development of PGM smelters utilising exclusive commercialisation rights of the ConRoast smelting process, located in South Africa ("PGE beneficiation and development");

•   the evaluation of the reclamation and processing of sulphide nickel tailings at BHP Billiton's Leinster, Kambalda and Mount Keith properties in Australia (Nickel tailings);

•   the exploration and mining of Platinum Group Elements ("PGEs") and associated metals (Exploration and mining);

•   the parent company operates a head office based in the United Kingdom, which incurred certain administration and corporate costs.

The results of the discontinued operations comprise two segments which have been combined into one segment referred to as Disposal Group being:

•   base metal smelting in South Africa; and

•   electricity generation in South Africa.

The Group's operations span five countries, South Africa, Australia, Madagascar, Mauritius and the United Kingdom. There is no difference between the accounting policies applied in the segment reporting and those applied in the Group financial statements. Mauritius and Madagascar do not meet the qualitative threshold under IFRS 8, consequently no separate reporting is provided.

8.          Going concern

 

The Directors have adopted the going-concern basis in preparing the financial statements.

 

The Company has continued to progress with the implementation of its Mine-to-Metals platinum strategy, more specifically and with reference to the above:

 

8.1.         On 22 March 2016, the Company successfully completed the project funding for the execution and               commissioning of both its surface platinum processing projects. The funding comprises a combination of           senior secured debt and unsecured debt. The senior secured    debt is up to a maximum of USD10 million   (ZAR153 million), with an initial advance of USD3 million (ZAR49.5 million) and a possible further        advance of USD2 million (ZAR30.6 million) subject to and upon the terms and conditions               contained in                 the agreement. The Borrower has agreed to accept and utilise the initial advance on the terms and              conditions contained in the agreement, and acknowledges its right to call for a further advance as provided          for in the agreement, in order to fund in aggregate its obligations to execute the two projects. The            unsecured debt is to a maximum of USD5 million (ZAR76.5 million). The Company also completed an              equity placing of £2.5 million (ZAR55.2 million) which was completed during March 2016 as announced     on 22 March 2016.

 

8.2          On 30 September 2015, Jubilee completed the disposal of 100% of the issued shares in Jubilee Smelting               and Refining Pty Ltd ("JSR"), and 70% of the issued shares in Power Alt Pty Ltd ("PA") to Siyanda          Resources Pty Ltd ("Siyanda"), through its nominated special purpose vehicle Hornbill Investments Pty Ltd            ("SPV") for a consideration of, in aggregate, ZAR110.5 million (approximately £5.3 million) ("the Disposal").               The Company received of 85% of the purchase consideration in cash. Ten per cent of the remaining 15%             of the purchase consideration is held in escrow in an amount approximating to £0.390 million (ZAR8.9                 million), net of closing adjustments including stock and supplier adjustments.

 

8.3          During the period under review the Company also successfully completed a number of equity placings for                 cash, raising in aggregate £4.5 million, net of issue expenses.

 

The Directors are of the opinion that the Group and Company are funded sufficiently to enable it to continue with its operations as a going concern.

On 30 September 2015, Jubilee completed the disposal of 100% of the issued shares in Jubilee Smelting and Refining Pty Ltd ("JSR"), and 70% of the issued shares in Power Alt Pty Ltd ("PA") to Siyanda Resources Pty Ltd ("Siyanda"), through its nominated special purpose vehicle Hornbill Investments Pty Ltd ("SPV") for a gross consideration of, in aggregate, ZAR110.5 million (approximately £5.3 million) ("the Disposal"). The Company received of 85% of the net purchase consideration in cash ("First Payment"). Ten per cent of the remaining 15% of the purchase consideration is held in escrow in an amount approximating to £0.68 million (ZAR13 million), net of closing adjustments including stock and supplier adjustments.The board considered it prudent to impair the balance of the purchase consideration to the income statement as it is the subject of an unsubstantiated warranty claim against the Company which is rejected by the Company and all necessary steps are taken to ensure release of the amount due. Pursuant to the disposal, loans to subsidiaries in an amount of £6 179 421 had been impaired.

10.        Events post balance sheet

10.1     Australia - Nickel in tailings surface project

Subsequent to the period-end, Braemore Nickel (Pty) Ltd ("Braemore") has received from BHP Billion (Pty) Ltd ("BHP") a notice of termination of the Tailings Supply Agreement relating to the Nickel containing material in Western Australia. Braemore rejects the termination notice since no factual or legal basis exists for such termination. Braemore has informed BHP that it intends to initiate legal proceeding to have the termination set aside. Management assesses that this has no impact on the carrying value of the Nickel Tailing Project intangible asset (per note 8) at the date of this report.

The Company's Australian subsidiary, Braemore Nickel (Pty) Ltd continued with ongoing internal review and optimisation of the process flowsheet for the recovery of Nickel from the Leinster project tailings ("Leinster Tailings"), in particular the Company's recent flowsheet optimisation in the liberation of minerals locked in tailings. This approach is currently being implemented in the recovery of PGM in associated sulphides from the South African tailings projects, specifically targeting the beneficiation of sulphite minerals which allows for significant enhancement in concentrate grade profiles which has improved the projected target performance and profitability of these tailings.

10.2     Warrants issued and dealings in securities

The Company has received notification on 10 November 2016 from a warrant holder to exercise 25,000,000 existing warrants in the issued share capital of Jubilee at a price of 3.55p (ZAR63.90c) per warrant share. The exercise of warrant shares amounts, in aggregate, to a cash value of GBP887, 500 (ZAR16 million). The warrant shares are expected to be admitted to AIM on 17 November 2016.

The Company also issued the final 1,848,167 new Jubilee ordinary shares ("Shares") at an average issue price of 2.44 pence per share to Dr. Matthews Phosa, who has elected to receive Shares in lieu of 100% of his director's remuneration accrued to him for the period 1 October 2014 to 31 July 2016. This is the final share issuance to Dr. Phosa and concludes the program of shares in lieu of director remuneration for Dr Phosa. The shares are issued under the authority of ordinary resolution number 12 and special resolution number 2 passed at the Company's Annual General Meeting held on 27 November 2013. The issue will bring Dr. Phosa's interest in the Company to 2,834,884 Shares, being 0.3% of the issued capital of the Company. The shares are expected to be admitted to AIM on 17 November 2016.

Annexure 1

Independent auditors' report to the members of Jubilee Platinum Plc

We have audited the Company's financial statements of Jubilee Platinum Plc for the year ended 30 June 2016, which comprise the Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income, Consolidated Statements of Financial Position, Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows, Consolidated Statements of Changes in Equity and Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements set out on pages 25 to 67. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union and, as regards the parent company financial statements, as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006.

 

This report is made solely to the company's members, as a body, in accordance with Chapter 3 of Part 16 of the Companies Act 2006.  Our audit work has been undertaken so that we might state to the company's members those matters we are required to state to them in an auditors' report and for no other purpose.  To the fullest extent permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other than the company and the company's members as a body, for our audit work, for this report, or for the opinions we have formed.

Respective responsibilities of Directors and auditors

As explained more fully in the Directors' Responsibilities Statement, the directors are responsible for the preparation of the financial statements and for being satisfied that they give a true and fair view.   Our responsibility is to audit and express an opinion on the financial statements in accordance with applicable law and International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland).  Those standards require us to comply with the Auditing Practices Board's Ethical Standards for Auditors.

Scope of the audit of the financial statements

An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the Group's and the parent company's circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the Directors; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial information in the Annual Report to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and to identify any information that is apparently materially incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with, the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report.

 

Opinion on financial statements

In our opinion:

·                the financial statements give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Group and the parent company as at 30 June 2016 and of the Group's loss for the year then ended; and

·                the Group financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union; and

·                the parent company financial statements have been properly prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union and as applied in accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act 2006; and

·                the financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006.

 

Opinion on other matter prescribed by the Companies Act 2006

In our opinion the information given in the Strategic Report and the Directors' Report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements.

Matters on which we are required to report by exception

We have nothing to report in respect of the following matters where the Companies Act 2006 requires us to report to you if, in our opinion:

·                adequate accounting records have not been kept by the parent company, or returns adequate for our audit have not been received from branches not visited by us; or

·                the parent company financial statements are not in agreement with the accounting records and returns; or

·                certain disclosures of Directors' remuneration specified by law are not made; or

·                we have not received all the information and explanations we require for our audit.

Annexure 2 - Headline earnings per share
