Invitation to shareholders Re: proposed changes to Articles of Incorporation

Gemfields Group Limited (“Gemfields”) is pleased to advise that it has completed an external review of its Articles of Incorporation (“Articles”). The review arose as a result of specific suggestions received from a shareholder group, and which Gemfields then expanded to include a general review taking into account AIM and JSE practices, Guernsey law (where Gemfields is registered) and the governance benchmarks set by a peer group of other, including large diversified, mining companies. The intention is to better align Gemfields with appropriate market practice and further improve the corporate governance framework.
