Elandsfontein Update

Kropz Plc (AIM: KRPZ), an emerging African phosphate explorer and developer, is pleased to announce an update for its Elandsfontein phosphate project ("Elandsfontein") located in South Africa.

Significant progress continues to be made at Elandsfontein and the project remains on track for achieving the target date for production in Q4 2021, within the project capital budget. Images of the progress at site are available online here:

These achievements have been realised against the backdrop of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. As widely known, South Africa is currently facing a damaging second wave of COVID-19.

The present focus is primarily on the site-based construction activities, which are permitted to continue under the current Level III restrictions. Earthworks are largely complete, and civil construction is advancing. Fabrication of structural steel, platework and piping has commenced, and the first major mechanical equipment has been delivered to site.

The Company's priority remains the health and well-being of its staff and contractors. Kropz Elandsfontein Pty (Ltd) has adopted appropriate measures, in accordance with local and international guidelines, to protect them from COVID-19.  The pandemic could, however, still adversely affect the schedule for Elandsfontein.

The Company will provide further updates on project progress in early Q2 2021.
