Hampton Hill Mining NL
Stable, long-term Gold royalties in Western Australia
5% gross overriding royalty on all gold production at the Apollo Hill Central leases
Expanded Mineral Resource at leases of 1,469,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 0.60 grams per tonne
The primary asset, and core focus of Hampton Hill Mining NL Company, is the 5% gross overriding royalty on all gold production at the Apollo Hill Central leases in excess of the first one million ounces produced.
The Apollo Hill project is owned by Saturn Metals Limited (STN) who are dedicated to advancing this project. In May STN reported to the ASX a new, expanded Mineral Resource at the Central leases of 1,469,000 ounces of gold at a grade of 0.60 grams per tonne.
This is a significant milestone for Hampton Hill, demonstrating clearly that the Central leases at Apollo Hill have the capacity to provide a significant future royalty stream. Figure 1 attached shows the impressive dimensions of the mineralized footprint and the opportunities available to expand the resource along strike, in width and at depth.
The project continues to rapidly advance with recent results, as reported by STN in their ASX March QR and in their ASX announcement of 29 March 2022, encouraging and supporting the development of a major heap leaching operation at Apollo Hill with a planned production rate of 10mtpa.
These studies are described in the STN ASX announcement of 3 May 2022 which also provides some basic insights into the potential of heap operations to mature into Tier 1 gold operations. Australia has not had an extensive history of major heap leach project operations and their potential for excellent profit is poorly appreciated in this country as a result.
The opportunity that Apollo Hill presents, reflects the inherent value of the Hampton Hill gold royalty.

Centred around the current 944,000oz JORC Mineral Resource Indicated and Inferred JORC Compliant Mineral Resource of 35.9Mt @ 0.8g/t Au reported above a cut-off grade of 0.4g/t Au and reported within an optimised pit shell1
100% ownership of more than 1,000km2 contiguous exploration grounds with underexplored large-scale district gold play – historically underdone due to varied ground ownership and commodity cycle.
The Millennium Project is located 40km southwest of Newcrest’s Telfer mine and is being explored via a 75:25 joint venture with Hampton Hill.
Previous drilling defined a broad zone of copper anomalism (+0.25% Cu) over a strike extent of +800m. RC drill hole EPT1140 collated in the core of the copper anomaly, returned a copper sulphide intersection of 26m @ 0.60% Cu from 100m incl. 10m @ 0.92% Cu from 100m.
Weld Range project is based on a banded iron formation high-grade resource of 300 Mt, which is strategically important for iron ore development in the Mid West.
Ore resources at the Beebyn and Madoonga ore bodies are sufficient to support over 25 years of production. Additional significant mineral resources and extensive areas of the range are still to be explored meaning the life of the project will most likely grow.
Mining at Weld Range is expected to use traditional drill and-blast mining methods and conventional mining equipment. SMG is continuing to further develop the resource base through exploration.
