ACTIVITY REPORT FOR THE QUARTER ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2021
Resource drilling in the central leases of the Apollo Hill project, on which Hampton Hill holds a 5% gross royalty on all production in excess of the first million ounces, continued at a steady pace during the quarter (Figure 1 and Figure 2).
At the Millennium Base Metals Project, a deep diamond drilling program was completed which provided further evidence of the high quality of this project.
The Company is awaiting the granting of its exploration license covering the new Tyson base metals project.
Hampton Hill Mining NL (Hampton Hill or the company) has now been suspended from trading by ASX for almost two years.
The Company is in a reasonable financial position and has a loan facility of $ 1 million (see Hampton Hill Annual Report June 30, 2021), of which $ 355,000 has been drawn to date. It has also listed ASX investments currently valued at around $ 2.7 million (10,800,000 shares of Peel Mining Limited (PEX)).
Apollo Hill Gold Project
During the quarter, work continued to focus on resource extension drilling, infill drilling, metallurgical diamond drilling and metallurgical test work as the project progresses towards the completion of pre-feasibility studies. . The described resource footprint continued to expand in all directions. In addition, project owner Saturn Metals Limited (STN) continued its regional aerial core drilling program across the larger project tenure.
There is potential for improved grade and a contained ounce profile as drilling continues. It can also be expected that the better understanding of the deposit that has been achieved with the targeting of higher grade sinking shoots in the resource footprint will have a positive effect.
A new mineral resource statement is expected to be ready for release in the March 2022 quarter.
Previous metallurgical studies have provided particularly encouraging results, with more than 60% of the gold recoverable by gravity and up to 98% recovered by the conventional grinding technique (at 90 mm grinding). Current test work is designed to provide additional weight of evidence for this for use in surface mine optimization studies. The mineral resource has an extremely low fines content compared to most other open pit resources in Western Australia due to its predominantly fresh rock characteristic. This characteristic makes the Apollo Hill ores exceptionally favorable for gold mining by heap leaching and opens the possibility for the project to improve the economics of production by processing, for example, low grade ores by leaching. in a heap while grinding the main material by conventional grinding.
Shareholders are invited to consult STN’s September 2021 quarterly report for more details.

Millennium Base Metals Project
The project manager, Encounter Resources, provided the following quarterly report:
The Millennium Project is located 40 km southwest of Newcrest’s Telfer gold / copper mine and is being explored as part of a 75:25 joint venture with Hampton Hill.
Millennium is located at a key structural intersection on the regionally significant Tabletop Fault on the margin of an interpreted sedimentary sub-basin. Millennium is located on the Tabletop fault in a non-outcropping area, with up to 20 m of overburden transported. This structure is known to be metallogenically important and is closely associated with the location of the Nifty copper deposit, 50 km laterally to the northwest. Previous drilling has defined a large zone of copper anomaly (+ 0.25% Cu) over a strike length of +800 m (Figure 3). Drill hole RC EPT1140 drilled in the core of the copper anomaly returned a copper sulfide intersection of:
- 26m @ 0.60% Cu from 100m incl. 10m @ 0.92% Cu from 100m
Diamond drilling program
The +800 m long copper anomaly identified in pre-Millennium drilling is interpreted as a leak upstream of the Tabletop fault from a primary copper position at depth. A 400m diamond drill tail to extend EPT2278 was completed during the quarter. The hole was designed to test the targeted position adjacent to the regionally significant Tabletop fault. The hole contained several zones of anomalous zinc mineralization hosted in black shales of the Broadhurst Formation. Narrow zones containing up to 1% Zn have been encountered and are potentially representative of a distal halo of a zinc deposit hosted in sediments. A low level copper anomaly was intersected in the hole with results of 100 to 300 ppm copper. These results are currently being evaluated and future exploration activities at Millennium are currently under consideration.

Tyson Base Metal Project
The Company is awaiting the granting of the primary exploration permit covering this project.
During the quarter, it applied for a new contiguous and northern exploration license after a search for historical exploration reports revealed that this area covers silver anomalies detected by previous drilling that had not yet been adequately tested. There is a competing candidate for this field and the award will be determined by a ballot organized by the DMIRS.
Glenview Base Metals Project
No fieldwork was carried out during the quarter and activity on this project is currently suspended.
Northlander Gold Project
Hampton Hill owns an NSR of 0.98% and certain salvage rights relating to the mining leases of the Northlander project.
Evolution Mining Limited (EVN) has reported that a 26,000 ounce gold mineral resource has been delineated on the Rayjax prospect as part of this project. Mineral resources are contained in 21,000 tonnes of indicated category grading 1.63 grams per tonne of gold and 25,000 inferred tonnes grading 1.90 grams per tonne of gold (See: EVN Annual Mineral Resource Declaration of 17 February 2021).
PAYMENTS TO RELATED PARTIES
(as indicated in section 6 of annex 5B of the quarterly cash flow report)
The outflow of $ 13,700 reported in section 6.1 of the quarterly cash flow report of Annex 5B relates to $ 11,000 in director fees, including superannuation, paid to non-executive directors during the quarter, as well as $ 2,700 in interest on a loan from a company associated with a director.
