    Quarterly report

    FOR THE PERIOD ENDING 30 JUNE 2016

    Argonaut Resources NL (Argonaut or the Company) (ASX: ARE) is pleased to present the following report on a progressive three month period to 30 June 2016 (the Quarter).

    Highlights

    Crescent Lake, Canada

    • A six-hole program of drilling at the Falcon Lake West deposit (Figure 2) was completed.

    • Drilling succeeded in intercepting two adjacent spodumene-bearing pegmatites with thicknesses of up to 24m and 15m.

    • The first batch of samples received featured an intercept of:

      ¬ 21.7m at 1.09% Li2O from 48.0m; including

      ¬ 7.9m at 1.31% Li2O from 49.8m in drill hole FLDD001.

    • Further drill results are imminent.

    • Argonaut has been granted a 100% interest in 22 Mining Claims in the Crescent Lake area.

    • The claims cover one known spodumene pegmatite occurrence (Figure 2) plus large, under-explored areas of prospective terrain.

    • The new claims cover an area of 54km2, increasing Argonaut's total holding in the project area to 80km2.

    • Field-based exploration will recommence in August 2016.

      Greenbush Lake, Canada

    • Argonaut agreed to purchase the Greenbush Lake Lithium Pegmatite Project in Ontario, Canada.

    • The project has confirmed high grades from existing rock chip samples. These include

      2.46% Li2O, 1.96% Li2O and 15m (50 feet) at 1.25% Li2O.

      Torrens, South Australia

    • Federal Court native title decision due July/August 2016.

      Business Development

    • The Company is in discussions with parties in Chile, Argentina and Canada in relation to additional lithium projects.

    • Discussions are underway on the acquisition of a significant gold project.

    • Argonaut plans to add additional assets to its portfolio in the September quarter.

  • Interest: Aeris Resources 70%, Argonaut 30%

  • Agreement Phase: Exploration

  • Operator: Argonaut

Outlook

  • Lithium market:

    ¬ Lithium demand continues to increase unabated.

    ¬ The application of lithium-ion batteries in the transport sector, particularly in China, is one the strongest growth stories seen in commodities for the last five years.

  • Exploration success:

¬ Exploration drilling during the period at the Crescent Lake Project in Ontario has provided encouragement for continued exploration in the area.

¬ A brief program of surface exploration will be completed at Crescent Lake in August before contingent drilling is undertaken between September to October 2016.

¬ Low-impact exploration at Lake Blanche in South Australia will begin after the finalisation of licencing and the grant of statutory approvals.

¬ The Company expects to announce initial results from a newly acquired lithium project.

Crescent Lake, Canada

(ARGONAUT ACQUIRING 100%)

On 4 March 2016, Argonaut released details of the Crescent Lake Lithium Project to the ASX. The initial acquisition included the Falcon Lake and Zigzag areas (Figure 2). On 8 June 2016, Argonaut announced the grant of

22 additional claims in the Crescent Lake area (Figure 2). These new claims are 100% held by Argonaut.

Falcon Lake

There are four known pegmatite occurrences in the Falcon Lake area. The Falcon Lake West deposit comprises two south-easterly dipping spodumene-bearing pegmatites with true widths of up to 24m and 15m (Figure 3).

2016 Drilling Program

Earlier in the month, Argonaut completed a six-hole program of Diamond core drilling at the Falcon Lake West deposit. The program targeted two pegmatite units, one of which outcrops boldly (Plate 1).

Highlights from the first batch of analytical results include:

  • 21.7m at 1.09% Li2O from 48.0m; including

  • 7.9m at 1.31% Li2O from 49.8m in drill hole FLDD001. Further details are shown in Appendix 1.

Visually, core generated during the program confirmed the presence of the two targeted spodumene-bearing pegmatites. The lower pegmatite unit is up to 24m thick and the upper pegmatite unit is up to 15m thick (Figure 3). Spodumene mineralisation was logged throughout the pegmatite intervals. Spodumene concentrations vary from moderate to intense (Plate 2).

Initial laboratory results confirm the deposit's lithium grades. Further results are expected to be reported within two weeks.

Historic Exploration

The areas were drilled in the 1950s, during a Canadian lithium exploration boom, and then again in 2010-11. Neither drilling program was extensive. Drilling data from the 1950s was reported prior to the establishment of modern JORC and NI43-101 standards. The 1950s drilling was undertaken by British Canadian Lithium Mining Corporation. The 2010-11 drilling at Falcon Lake and Zigzag is reported to NI43-101 standards.

All previous drilling focused on surface or near-surface lithium bearing pegmatites.
