Global Nuclear Power Growth

The uranium market and Toro's response

  • Uranium prices have taken longer to recover than forecast, but long term fundamentals remain strong

  • 5 mines produce 85% of current global primary uranium

    supply; Kazakhstan remains largest supplier

  • 3 of 5 'pivotal projects' for expanded supplies not proceeding

  • Despite market conditions Toro has expanded its asset portfolio, improved its share register and maintained a healthy balance sheet

  • Continued focus on the critical Wiluna development activities including permitting and traditional owner agreements, resource, project economics

  • Seeking new properties that are capable of development to

coincide with forecast improvement in uranium prices
