Demerger Summary - Falcon Metals Ltd 

Chalice has now received Shareholder approval for the demerger of its gold exploration projects in Victoria and Western Australia (together, the Spin-Out Projects) to a new ASX listed gold exploration company, Falcon Metals (ASX: FAL).

The demerger will allow Chalice to focus on its world-class Julimar Ni-Cu-PGE Project and the new West Yilgarn Ni-Cu-PGE Province in Western Australia, where exploration and evaluation activities are rapidly accelerating.

Chalice will transfer the Spin-Out Projects to Falcon Metals and distribute the Falcon Metals shares held by Chalice to eligible Chalice Shareholders by way of a pro rata in-specie distribution, on the basis of 1 Falcon Metals share for approximately every 3.017 Chalice Shares held on the In-specie Record Date of 9 December 2021. Chalice shareholders will also retain their existing Chalice shares.

It is intended that the IPO will comprise:

(a) a priority pro rata rights offer to eligible Chalice shareholders (Priority Offer); and

(b) an offer of any shortfall from the Priority Offer to eligible Chalice shareholders and the general public (Shortfall Offer).

The in-specie distribution of Falcon Metal shares and the issue of Falcon Metal shares under the IPO will be completed on 15 December 2021. Please view the Prospectus for the complete timetable.
