The company continues with its active site program in readiness to push towards development and plant construction. The TGME Phase 1 Underground Project (Beta, CDM and Frankfort Mines) Definitive Feasibility Study will be completed by Q1 2022 as management decided to also include the Rietfontein Mine to the initial PFS scope.

The Company has progressed strongly during the early part of 2021, delivering key project milestones, funding, the first Underground Mining Reserve1 and first Maiden Underground Prefeasibility Study2 ("PFS"). The team has delivered a PFS based on only 16% of Theta Gold's 4.5m oz Au underground gold resource, and incorporates only 3 out of the recorded 43 historical mines across the project area.

The Phase 1 Underground Prefeasibility Study and Maiden Underground Mining Reserve were discussed in great details in the post quarter events section of the January to March 2021 Quarterly Report and will not be expanded further in this report. The Maiden Underground Mining Reserve is estimated at 419,000 oz gold (2,366 Kt @ 5.49 g/t). In total, the global Mining Reserve is now 580,000 oz gold (4,530 Kt @ 3.98 g/t). The global Mineral Resource (JORC 2012) remains over 6.1 Moz (45.5 Mt @ 4.17 g/t Au)
