Elandsfontein Update regarding Water Tribunal ("Tribunal")

Kropz plc (AIM: KRPZ), an emerging African phosphate explorer and developer, advises that, further to the announcement on 16 March 2020,  it has been notified that from 3 September 2020 three days have been scheduled for the hearing against Elandsfontein's valid integrated water use licence ("WUL"). The Tribunal will be resumed following a postponement, ordered by the Chairperson of the Tribunal, following COVID-19 concerns. Subsequent South African government guidelines have prohibited the Tribunal from reconvening in the period since March.

The Company would like to advise the market that, in order to allow the Tribunal the appropriate opportunity to fully review the matter, it will not be providing further comment on the official proceedings until the Tribunal has announced its decision. The timing of the decision is currently unknown.

Pending the Tribunal's decision, there is no legal impediment to the continuation of the water use activities authorised in the WUL.
