• Revenues of €51.7 million for the three months ended 31 March 2019 ("Q1 2019") compared with €52.7 million for the three months ended 31 March 2018 ("Q1 2018"). The variance was due to stronger average US Dollar rates against the Euro and offset by lower copper prices and slightly lower volumes sold during the period.

• Operating costs during Q1 2019 were €30.0 million compared with €36.4 million in Q1 2018. Lower expenses were mainly due to a reduction in earthworks and changes in inventories.

• Cash costs during Q1 2019 were $1.89/lb of payable copper, an increase from cash costs of $1.77/lb of payable copper in Q4 2018 but lower than Q1 2018 ($2.27/lb). The decrease against Q1 2018 was mainly the result of lower mining, and technical services, maintenance, penalties and concentrate deductions. All-in Sustaining Costs ("AISC") during Q1 2019 amounted to $2.18/lb of payable copper, an increase from $2.00/lb of payable copper during Q4 2018 but lower than Q1 2018 ($2.65/lb).

• Management expects cash costs for the year to remain within the guidance range provided of $1.95/lb to $2.15/lb and AISC from $2.25/lb to $2.45/lb.

• EBITDA of €19.5 million in Q1 2019 compared with €15.0 million in Q1 2018. The increase in EBITDA was mainly the result of lower operating costs in Q1 2019.

• Q1 2019 profit after tax amounted to €14.2 million (or 10.3 cents basic earnings per share) compared with a profit for Q1 2018 of €8.8 million (or 6.5 cents basic earnings per share).

• Inventories of concentrate at 31 March 2019 amounted to €2.4 million (€3.0 million at 31 December 2018).

• At the end of Q1 2019 working capital was €9.0 million, a €0.6 million increase from €8.4 million at the end of Q4 2018. Unrestricted cash balances as at 31 March 2019 amounted to €23.8 million.

*Financial Highlights (continued)*

• Cash flow from operating activities before changes in working capital was €20.3 million for Q1 2019 compared with a cash flow of €15.2 million during Q1 2018.

• Net cash flow from operating activities after changes in working capital was €8.1 million for Q1 2019 compared with a cash flow of €18.4 million during Q1 2018.

*Operational Highlights*

Proyecto Riotinto

• Copper production during Q1 2019 was 10,219 tonnes, an increase of 8.2% compared with 9,441 tonnes produced during Q1 2018.

• Ore processed during Q1 2019 was 2,445,977 tonnes, an increase on Q1 2018 when ore processed amounted to 2,206,861 tonnes.

• Copper recovery during the quarter was 90.27%, higher than 88.47% achieved in Q1 2018.

• The Company maintains its previously stated copper production guidance for 2019 of 45,000 - 46,500 tonnes.

Expansion to 15Mtpa at Proyecto Riotinto

• The 15Mtpa expansion project has progressed materially during the quarter with expected mechanical completion on track for the end of Q2 2019. Overall progress completion at the end of the quarter was 97% with construction reporting 72% completion.

• The new primary crushing area is mechanically well advanced with electrical works progressing. In the new milling area, mechanical activities are progressing according to plan. New flotation and concentrate handling areas are in the final stages of commissioning.

Proyecto Touro

• During the quarter, feedback has been received from the relevant Administration bodies as part of the assessment of the environmental impact studies. The Company is addressing additional requests to complement current management plans. This stage of the process is expected to last until the end of Q2 2019.

*Legal updates*

• On 29 March 2019, the Company announced that it had received notification from the Supreme Court in Spain that it does not have jurisdiction over the appeal made by the Junta de Andalucía ("JdA") and the Company, which voluntarily joined the appeal as co-defendant. Therefore, the previously announced Ruling made by the Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Andalucía ("TSJA") remains valid. The Company will continue operating the mine normally and has been advised the Ruling will not impact its operations at Proyecto Riotinto.

• On 26 April 2019, the Company announced a judgment related to the Mining Permits to operate Proyecto Riotinto (the "Mining Permits") was handed down by the TSJA. The TSJA declared the Mining Permits are linked to the Environmental Permits, ruled by the same tribunal on September 2018. The new ruling on the Mining Permits is based on the requirement to have an AAU before issuing mining permits and therefore invalidates the existing Mining Permits. The TSJA has not accepted the requests by EeA for the cessation of activities at the mine and an increase in the scope of the environmental plan.

• All the pending claims made by EeA have now been ruled by the TSJA. Atalaya continues to work with its legal advisors to evaluate the possibility of appealing the ruling and to ensure the JdA addresses all procedural points raised in both rulings. The Company continues operating the mine normally as the rulings do not state the operation at Proyecto Riotinto is to be ceased, not even temporarily and it is still confident that the ruling will not impact its operations at Proyecto Riotinto. The JdA has publicly supported the continuation of the mine.

*Alberto Lavandeira, CEO commented:*

"We are delighted with Atalaya's financial performance for Q1 2019, in which reduced operating costs have led to a substantial increase in profits of over 60%. Progress with our expansion to 15Mtpa at Proyecto Riotinto is proceeding to plan with mechanical completion on track for the end of Q2 2019. Once completed, we will enjoy improved operational efficiencies and reduced cash costs compared with 2018. We maintain our guidance for full year 2019 production of 45,000 to 46,500 tonnes of copper."

Three months operational review

Copper production at Proyecto Riotinto for Q1 2019 increased to 10,219 tonnes from 9,441 tonnes reported in Q1 2018, and 11,172 tonnes in Q4 2018, representing an increase and a decrease of 8.2% and (8.5)%, respectively. Ore milled was consistent with previous quarters and in line with management's expectations. Copper head grade was in line with previous quarter and with expectations. The increase in copper production during the quarter compared with Q1 2018 was mainly attributable to a record average recovery of 90.26%.

Mining operations are progressing according to plan and at similar levels to previous quarters. On a combined basis, ore, waste and marginal ore amounted to 2.3 million m^3 in Q1 2019 versus 2.5 million m^3 in Q4 2018. Additional mining equipment is available on site in anticipation of the increase in production scheduled for H2 2019.

During Q1 2019, the Group sold 45,172 tonnes of concentrates, compared with 44,487 tonnes in Q4 2018 and 48,682 tonnes in Q1 2018. On-site concentrate inventories at the end of the quarter were approximately 2,936 tonnes. All concentrate in stock at the beginning of the quarter and produced during the quarter was delivered to the port at Huelva.

Exploration around Proyecto Riotinto is progressing well with two drilling programmes under way. Remaining massive sulphides and stockwork mineralisation are being targeted under the Atalaya pit. Lateral extensions of massive sulphides and stockwork are also being drilled around Filon Sur. Geological modelling is being updated as information becomes available.

*2. Overview of operational results (continued)*

*Expansion to 15Mtpa at Proyecto Riotinto*

The 15Mtpa expansion project has progressed materially during the quarter with expected mechanical completion on track for the end of Q2 2019. Overall progress completion at the end of the quarter was 97% with construction reporting 72% completion. The new primary crushing area is mechanically well advanced with electrical works progressing. In the new milling area, mechanical activities are progressing according to plan. New flotation and concentrate handling areas are in the final stages of commissioning.

*Proyecto Touro*

During the quarter, feedback has been received from the relevant Administration bodies as part of the assessment of the environmental impact studies. The Company is busy addressing additional requests to complement current management plans. This stage of the process is expected to last until the end of Q2 2019.

*3. Outlook*

The forward-looking information contained in this section is subject to the risk factors and assumptions contained in the cautionary statement on forward-looking statements included in the introduction note of this report.

Three months financial review

Revenues for the three month period ended 31 March 2019 amounted to €51.7 million (Q1 2018: €52.7 million). Lower revenues, compared with the same quarter in the previous year, were mainly driven by stronger US Dollar average rates against Euro and offset by lower copper prices and slightly lower volumes during the period.

Realised prices of $2.80/lb copper during Q1 2019 compared with $3.03/lb copper in Q1 2018. All concentrates were sold under offtake agreements in place.

Operating costs for the three month period ended 31 March 2019 amounted to €30.1 million, compared with €36.4 million in Q1 2018. The decrease was mainly due to lower mining and processing variable costs, in addition to a lesser depreciation charge (due to an extension of the life of mine as per updated reserves and resources report in mid-2018).

Cash costs of $1.89/lb payable copper during Q1 2019 compared with $2.27lb payable copper in the same period last year. Cash costs were impacted by lower mining, technical services and maintenance costs and higher capitalised stripping costs compared with Q1 2018. Capitalised stripping costs during Q1 2019 amounted to €0.8 million compared with €0.3 million in Q1 2018. All-in sustaining costs in the reporting quarter were $2.18/lb payable copper compared with $2.65/lb payable copper in Q1 2018. The decrease in AISC compared with Q1 2018 mainly related to lower sustaining capex and agency fees as well as lower cash operating costs.

Sustaining capex for Q1 2019 amounted to €1.7 million compared with €2.7 million in Q1 2018. Sustaining capex related to enhancements in processing systems of the plant and continuous development programmes at the tailings storage facilities.

Administrative and other expenses amounted to €1.9 million (Q1 2018: €1.1 million) and include non-operating costs of the Cyprus office, corporate legal and consultancy costs, on-going listing costs, officers and directors' emoluments, and salaries and related costs of the corporate office.

Exploration costs at Proyecto Riotinto for the three month period ended 31 March 2019 amounted to €0.2 million, similar amount that in Q1 2018. All exploration costs at Proyecto Touro are capitalised.

EBITDA for the three months ended 31 March 2019 amounted to €19.5 million compared with Q1 2018 of €15.0 million.

The main item below the EBITDA line is depreciation and amortisation of €3.4 million (Q1 2018: €4.1 million). Net financing costs for Q1 2019 amounted to €31k compared with €7k in Q1 2018.

* *

*Copper prices*

The average realised copper price decreased 7.6% from US$3.03 per pound in Q1 2018 to US$2.80 per pound in Q1 2019.

The average prices of copper for the three months ended 31 March 2019 and 2018 are summarised below:

Realised copper price per lb

Market copper price per lb

*2.82*



3.16

Realised copper prices for the reporting period noted above have been calculated using payable copper and including provisional invoices and final settlements of quotation periods ("QPs") together. Lower realised prices than market averages are mainly due to the final settlement of invoices where QP was fixed in the previous quarter due to a short open period when copper prices were lower. The realised price of shipments during the quarter excluding QP was approximately $2.82/lb.

*5. Non-GAAP Measures*

Atalaya has included certain non-IFRS measures including "EBITDA", "Cash Cost per pound of payable copper", "All In Sustaining Costs" ("AISC") and "realised prices" in this report. Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardised meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore they may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. These measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for indicators prepared in accordance with IFRS.

EBITDA includes gross sales net of penalties and discounts and all operating costs, excluding finance, tax, impairment, depreciation and amortisation expenses.

Cash Cost per pound of payable copper includes cash operating costs, including treatment and refining charges ("TC/RC"), freight and distribution costs net of by-product credits. Cash Cost per pound of payable copper is consistent with the widely accepted industry standard established by Wood Mackenzie and is also known as the C1 cash cost.

AISC per pound of payable copper includes C1 Cash Costs plus royalties and agency fees, expenditures on rehabilitation, capitalised stripping costs, exploration and geology costs, corporate costs and sustaining capital expenditures.

Realised price per pound of payable copper is the value of the copper payable included in the concentrate produced before deducting the penalties, discounts, credits and other features governed by the offtake agreements of the Group and all discounts or premiums provided in commodity hedge agreements with financial institutions, expressed in USD per pound of payable copper. Realised price is consistent with the widely accepted industry standard definition.

*6. Liquidity and capital resources*

Atalaya monitors factors that could impact its liquidity as part of Atalaya's overall capital management strategy. Factors that are monitored include, but are not limited to, the market price of copper, foreign currency rates, production levels, operating costs, capital and administrative costs.

The following is a summary of Atalaya's cash position and cash flows as at 31 March 2019 and 31 December 2018.

Unrestricted cash and cash equivalents as at 31 March 2019 decreased to €23.8 million from €32.8 million at 31 December 2018. The decrease in cash balances is the result of net cash flow incurred in the period. Cash balances are unrestricted and include balances at operational and corporate level.

Restricted cash remains at €0.3 million as at 31 March 2019 and mainly relates to deposit bond guarantees.*6. Liquidity and capital resources (continued)*

As of 31 March 2019, Atalaya reported a working capital surplus of €9.0 million, compared with a working capital surplus of €8.4 million at 31 December 2018. The main liability of the working capital is trade payables related to Proyecto Riotinto contractors. At 31 March 2019, trade payables have been reduced by circa 17% compared with the same period last year.

Three months cash flows review

Cash and cash equivalents decreased by €9.0 million during the three months ended 31 March 2019. This was due to the net results of cash from operating activities amounting to €8.1 million and the cash used in investing activities amounting to €17.1 million.

Cash generated from operating activities before working capital changes was €20.3 million. Atalaya increased its trade receivables in the period by €11.9 million, decreased its inventory levels by €0.8 million and decreased its trade payables by €1.0 million.

Investing activities during the quarter consumed €17.1 million, relating mainly to the expansion project Capex and sustaining capex mostly in enhancements in processing systems of the plant.

*Foreign exchange*

Foreign exchange rate movements can have a significant effect on Atalaya's operations, financial position and results. Atalaya's sales are denominated in U.S. dollars ("USD"), while Atalaya's operating expenses, income taxes and other expenses are mainly denominated in Euros ("EUR"), and to a much lesser extent in British Pounds ("GBP").

Accordingly, fluctuations in the exchange rates can potentially impact the results of operations and carrying value of assets and liabilities on the balance sheet.

During the three months ended 31 March 2019, Atalaya recognised a foreign exchange profit of €0.7 million. Foreign exchange losses mainly related to change in the period end EUR and USD conversion rates, as all sales are cashed and occasionally held in USD.

*7. Deferred consideration*

In September 2008, the Group moved to 100% ownership of Atalaya Riotinto Mineral S.L. ("ARM") (and thus full ownership of Proyecto Riotinto) by acquiring the remaining 49% of the issued capital of ARM. At the time of the acquisition, the Group signed a Master Agreement (the "Master Agreement") with Astor Management AG ("Astor") which included a deferred consideration of €43.9 million (the "Deferred Consideration") payable as consideration in respect of the acquisition. The Company also entered into a credit assignment agreement at the same time with a related company of Astor, Shorthorn AG, pursuant to which the benefit of outstanding loans was assigned to the Company in consideration for the payment of €9.1 million to Shorthorn (the "Loan Assignment").

The Master Agreement has been the subject of litigation in the High Court and the Court of Appeal that has now concluded. As a consequence, ARM must apply any excess cash (after payment of operating expenses, sustaining capital expenditure, any senior debt service requirements and up to US$10 million per annum (for non-Proyecto Riotinto related expenses)) to pay the consideration due to Astor (including the Deferred Consideration and the amount of €9.1 million payable under the Loan Assignment). "Excess cash" is not defined in the Master Agreement leaving ambiguity as to how it is to be calculated.

As at 31 March 2019, no consideration has been paid.

The amount of the liability recognised by the Group is €53 million. The effect of discounting remains insignificant, in line with 2018 assessment, and therefore the Group has measured the liability for the Astor deferred consideration on an undiscounted basis.

*8. Corporate social responsibility*

During the quarter, Atalaya has continued its involvement in social responsibility through several activities through Fundación Atalaya Riotinto.

Continuing its work in education and entrepreneurship, the Company has renewed the Language School Program in cooperation with the City Council of Nerva, and has restarted the school visits program of the mining region to Atalaya´s facilities.

The Company has launched the second edition of "el Reto Malacate": an initiative to reward the best business project to be settled in the region.

In cooperation with the City Hall of Minas de Riotinto, Atalaya has provided the necessary funding for the opening of the Museum of the Town, which contains large scale models that represent the old town of Minas de Riotinto.

Atalaya has also reached agreements with the towns of Nerva and Campofrío to, respectively, repopulate an important avenue with palm trees, and labelling through town´s advertising to attract tourism.

Also, in collaboration with Asociación Matilde, the Company has cooperated in a program consisting of restoring an organic local garden and selling its products to the market. People involved in this project comes from families at risk of social exclusion.

Atalaya has also taken part into the GAVI program (Business Alliance for Childhood Vaccination) in collaboration with the Fundación La Caixa" and Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

*9. Health and safety*

The prevention of occupational hazards has the highest priority in the Company. The investigation and the analysis of any type of accident is fully performed under the "methodology of the 5 whys" to both own personnel and contractors, even if the accident results in no lost time injury.

During Q1 2019 the Company worked alongside with contractors to strongly reinforce the compliance of safety regulations and accident prevention, establishing a quality assessment of the safety actions carried out by Atalaya.

In addition, the Company is running a program for the evaluation of psychosocial factors in the work environment. For this purpose, Atalaya and the employees 'representatives has formed a working group, supported by an external consulting company. The Company has given out a survey to all its personnel to be submitted on a voluntary basis and entirely confidential. The final results of the survey will be analysed by the external consultant and the Company will receive feedback in the coming months, so to implement a guideline in the improvement of working conditions.

*9. Health and safety (continued)*

The Company is also developing a training program for high-risk activities. This program involves trainings in the assembling of lifelines, interlocking of equipment, working in cramped spaces, etc.

All these lines of work are resulting in enhancements of safety with respect to the previous year, meaning just two accidents with a minor loss in the first quarter of 2019.

The Company carries on working towards zero damages.

*10. Environmental management*

During the first quarter of 2019, the environmental department has continued executing the actions of environmental monitoring of the activity, management of the natural environment and the usual historical heritage. Key points of the quarter:

- An analysis of the evolution of the diffuse contamination has been performed, registering a 37% decrease in the pollutant load towards the Tinto and Odiel rivers, thanks to the restoration and water management actions carried out since the beginning of the mining operation.

- Results in terms of emissions to the atmosphere and air quality from 2018 have been analysed and veryfied that the limit values and established target values were met in all the controls carried out.

- Results from 2018 analysis showed a reduction of 16% in the production of hazardous waste and 25% in non-hazardous waste with respect to 2017.

Archaeological excavation work has continued, focusing on the Look Out site for its release as soon as possible.

*11. Risk factors*

Due to the nature of Atalaya's business in the mining industry, the Group is subject to various risks that could materially impact the future operating results and could cause actual events to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements relating to Atalaya. Readers are encouraged to read and consider the risk factors detailed in Atalaya's audited, consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018.

*12. Critical accounting policies, estimates and accounting changes*

The preparation of Atalaya's Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported in the Financial Statements and accompanying notes. There is a full discussion and description of Atalaya's critical accounting policies in the audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2018.

*Notes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements*

(All amounts in Euro thousands unless otherwise stated)

For the three months to 31 March 2019 and 2018 - (Unaudited)

*1. Incorporation and summary of business*

*Country of incorporation*

Atalaya Mining Plc (the "Company") was incorporated in Cyprus on 17 September 2004 as a private company with limited liability under the Companies Law, Cap. 113 and was converted to a public limited liability company on 26 January 2005. Its registered office is at 1 Lampousa Street, Nicosia, Cyprus.

The Company was listed on AIM of the London Stock Exchange in May 2005 under the symbol ATYM and on the TSX on 20 December 2010 under the symbol AYM. The Company continued to be listed on AIM and the TSX as at 31 March 2019.

Additional information about Atalaya Mining Plc is available at www.atalayamining.com as per requirement of AIM rule 26.

*Change of name and share consolidation*

Following the Company's Extraordinary General Meeting ("EGM") on 13 October 2015, the change of name from EMED Mining Public Limited to Atalaya Mining Plc became effective on 21 October 2015. On the same day, the consolidation of ordinary shares came into effect, whereby all shareholders received one new ordinary share of nominal value Stg £0.075 for every 30 existing ordinary shares of nominal value Stg £0.0025.

*Principal activities*

The Company owns and operates through a wholly-owned subsidiary, "The Riotinto project", an open-pit copper mine located in the Pyritic belt, in the Andalusia region of Spain, approximately 65 km northwest of Seville. A brownfield expansion of this mine is in progress.

In addition, the Company has a phased earn-in agreement to up 80% ownership of "The Touro project", a brownfield copper project in northwest Spain, which is currently at the permitting stage.

The Company's and its subsidiaries' business is to explore for and develop metals production operations in Europe, with an initial focus on copper.

The strategy is to evaluate and prioritise metal production opportunities in several jurisdictions throughout the well-known belts of base and precious metal mineralisation in Spain and the Eastern European region.

*2. Basis of preparation and accounting policies*

*2.1 Basis of preparation*

(a) Overview

The condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). IFRS comprise the standard issued by the International Accounting Standard Board ("IASB"), and IFRS Interpretations Committee ("IFRICs") as issued by the IASB. Additionally, the consolidated financial statements have also been prepared in accordance with the IFRS as adopted by the European Union (EU), using the historical cost convention.

These condensed interim consolidated financial statements are unaudited and include the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiary undertakings. They have been prepared using accounting bases and policies consistent with those used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements of the Company and the Group for the year ended 31 December 2018. These condensed interim consolidated financial statements do not include all of the disclosures required for annual financial statements, and accordingly, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and other information set out in the Company's 31 December 2018 Annual Report. The accounting policies are unchanged from those disclosed in the annual consolidated financial statements.

The Directors have formed a judgment at the time of approving the financial statements that there is a reasonable expectation that the Company and the Group have adequate available resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future.

*2. Basis of preparation and accounting policies (cont.)*

*2.1 Basis of preparation (cont.)*

(b) Going concern

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis of accounting principles applicable to a going concern which assumes that the Group will realise its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. Management has carried out an assessment of the going concern assumption and has concluded that the Group will generate sufficient cash and cash equivalents to continue operating for the next twelve months.

*2.2 Adoption of new and revised International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs)*

The Group has adopted all the new and revised IFRSs and International Accounting Standards (IASs) which are relevant to its operations and are effective for accounting periods commencing on 1 January 2019. The adoption of these Standards did not have a material effect on the condensed interim consolidated financial statements.

IFRS 16 - Leases

The new standard on leases that replaces IAS 17, IFRIC 4, SIC-15 and SIC-27. Under the provisions of the standard most leases, including the majority of those previously classified as operating leases, will be brought onto the statement of financial position, as both a right-of-use asset and a largely offsetting lease liability. The right-of-use asset and lease liability are both based on the present value of lease payments due over the term of the lease, with the asset being depreciated in accordance with IAS 16 'Property, Plant and Equipment' and the liability increased for the accretion of interest and reduced by lease payments.

As of the date of the Report, Atalaya has completed the assessment of the potential impact of IFRS 16 on its consolidated financial statements concluding that there is no material impact. The actual impact of applying IFRS 16 on the consolidated financial statements in the period of initial application will depend on future economic conditions, including the Group´s borrowing rate at 1 January 2019, the composition of Atalaya´s borrowing rate at 1 January 2019, the composition of Atalaya´s portfolio at that date, its latest assessment of whether it will exercise any lease renewal options, and the extent to which Atalaya chooses to use practical expedients and recognition exemptions. The directors continue to consider the potential effects on the Group's financial statements and do not currently expect that there will be a material impact, given the current market and internal conditions.

*2.3 Fair value estimation*

The fair values of the Group's financial assets and liabilities approximate their carrying amounts at the reporting date.

The fair value of financial instruments traded in active markets, such as publicly traded trading and other financial assets is based on quoted market prices at the reporting date. The quoted market price used for financial assets held by the Group is the current bid price. The appropriate quoted market price for financial liabilities is the current ask price.

The fair value of financial instruments that are not traded in an active market is determined by using valuation techniques. The Group uses a variety of methods, such as estimated discounted cash flows, and makes assumptions that are based on market conditions existing at the reporting date.

Fair value measurements recognised in the consolidated statement of financial position

The following table provides an analysis of financial instruments that are measured subsequent to initial recognition at fair value, Grouped into Levels 1 to 3 based on the degree to which the fair value is observable.

• Level 1 fair value measurements are those derived from quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

• Level 2 fair value measurements are those derived from inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e. as prices) or indirectly (i.e. derived from prices).

• Level 3 fair value measurements are those derived from valuation techniques that include inputs for the asset or liability that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

*2.4 Critical accounting estimates and judgements*

The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities, and the accompanying disclosures, and the disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements. Estimates and assumptions are continually evaluated and are based on management's experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Uncertainty about these assumptions and estimates could result in outcomes that require a material adjustment to the carrying amount of assets or liabilities affected in future periods.

Provisions are recognised when the Group has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events, it is probable that an outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation, and a reliable estimate of the amount can be made. If the effect of the time value of money is material, provisions are discounted using a current pre-tax rate that reflects, where appropriate, the risks specific to the liability. Where discounting is used, the increase in the provision due to the passage of time is recognised as a finance cost.

A full analysis of critical accounting estimates and judgements is set out in Note 3.4 to the 2018 audited financial statements.

*3. Business and geographical segments*

*Business segments*

The Group has only one distinct business segment, being that of mining operations, which include mineral exploration and development.
