"We are delighted with the outstanding response to Resouro's ASX listing. The Board sees Resouro's listing on the ASX as a great opportunity to capture the true value of the company's assets and is highly complementary to the current listing on the TSXV. On behalf of the Board and senior management, I would like to thank all investors for their strong interest in the Company. I would also like to personally welcome new shareholders to the Company and thank existing shareholders for their continued support throughout the Offer process.

Resouro's leading project, Tiros, is an exciting asset located in a Tier-1 mining jurisdiction, Brazil, hosts some of the world's largest rare earth elements reserves, making it a potential major supplier globally. We look forward to accelerating our drilling program to enhance our understanding of the magnitude and grade potential of the Tiros project.

Tiros is being advanced at a time when demand for rare earth elements continues to grow in response to the electrification and decarbonisation of the global economy, which we believe will continue as countries seek to achieve their net-zero carbon emission targets."
