Ferrum Crescent appoints Justin Tooth to its Board of Directors as Non-Executive Chairman

– AUSTRALIA, Subiaco – Ferrum Crescent, the ASX, AIM and JSE quoted iron ore developer announces the appointment of Mr Justin Tooth as Non-Executive Chairman of the Company in place of Mr Edward Nealon who is stepping down from the Board to pursue his other business interests, both to occur with immediate effect.

Mr Tooth is a financial sector professional with over twenty years’ experience in equity sales and corporate broking and has a comprehensive knowledge of the natural resources sector. Between 1994 and 2009, Mr Tooth held senior roles at SBC Warburg, Lehman Brothers, Paribas and Deutsche Bank, amongst others, primarily in equity sales and management roles. From 2009 to 2014, he was employed by the specialist brokerage Ocean Equities Limited (now Pareto Securities Limited) in the role of sales and business development manager. He brings a wealth of corporate experience to the Board as the Company seeks to progress its Bankable Feasibility Study (“BFS”) for its high-grade Moonlight magnetite project, located in Limpopo Province, northern South Africa (the “Moonlight Project”, “Project” or “Moonlight”).

Commenting today Tom Revy, Managing Director of Ferrum Crescent, said: “I would first like to thank Ed for his considerable hard work, guidance and support at Ferrum Crescent where we have now secured a clear development route forward for our Moonlight Project with the recent entering into of a farm-in and joint venture agreement with Business Venture Investments (“BVI”), a sister company of Ovation Capital. On behalf of the Board, I wish Ed all the best in his future endeavours.

“I am delighted to welcome Justin to the board as Non-Executive Chairman in Ed’s stead, as we look to build value within the Company as we pursue the completion of our BFS workflow objectives.”

Justin Tooth, Non-Executive Chairman of Ferrum Crescent, said: “I am delighted to join Ferrum Crescent as Non-Executive Chairman at a transformational time for the Company as the Moonlight BFS resumes. Having been following the Company’s progress for a number of years, I believe that Moonlight is a unique project offering the prospect of ultimately producing a high grade magnetite product that can potentially be sold either domestically or overseas, at a premium price point. I look forward to working closely with the Board to generate long-term shareholder value.”

Ferrum Crescent’s principal project is the Moonlight Iron Project located in Limpopo Province in the north of South Africa. The Moonlight Deposit (upon which the Project is based) is a magnetite deposit located on the Moonlight, Gouda Fontein and Julietta farms and is the main operational focus for the Company. Iscor Limited (“Iscor”), which explored the Project in the 1980s and ’90s, reported mineralisation capable of producing a concentrate grading at 68.7% iron. At that time, Iscor concluded that the deposit, which was described as being comparable to the world’s best, was easily mineable due to its low waste-to-ore ratio. The beneficiation attributes of Moonlight ore are extremely impressive, with low-intensity magnetic separation considered suitable for optimum concentration.

Metallurgical tests on Moonlight material, undertaken since then by Ferrum Crescent, suggest that Iscor’s historical results are conservative, that good metal recoveries can be achieved, and that the resulting concentrates have a high iron content and only negligible impurities, at grind sizes considered to be industry standard (P80 of 75 – 125 microns).
