This report is based on financial statements which have been audited.

Commentary on results for the period

Revenue from ordinary activities and operating loss for the year ended 30 June 2016 have been impacted by declining Australian dollar iron ore prices and lower shipped tonnages than planned at the NJV, as a result of the temporary suspension of operations. This was partly offset by a full-year of operations from the Company's Iron Valley project, which generated a positive EBITDA of $10.2M.

The full year was also impacted by substantial asset impairments of $40.1M before tax due to the current outlook for iron ore prices. Additionally deferred tax assets of $18.6M relating to temporary differences have been derecognised and total tax losses of $49.4M have not been recognised.

Detailed commentary on the results for the full-year is contained in the ASX release and the financial report that accompany this announcement.
