Letter of Appreciation
To: Zijin Mining Construction Co., Ltd

Dear General Manager WANG Lingzhi
The inception of Kamoa-Kakula’s Phase I production on May 25th, 2021 marks the birth of a world-class copper mine that will benefit generations to come. It is truly a historic moment not only for Ivanhoe Mines and Zijin Mining, but also for the Democratic Republic of Congo.
卡莫阿-卡库拉项目 I期已于 2021年 5月 25日顺利投产，标志着一个伟大的、将惠及世代的世界铜生产矿山的诞生，这对于艾芬豪矿业 、 紫金矿业 和刚果民主共和国来说，都是一个历史性的时刻。
Since the commencement of the Kamoa-Kakula Project, your team has demonstrated tremendous dedication and outstanding collaboration to ensure quality and quantity in delivering various key milestones as required by Kamoa Copper. These collective efforts were highly praised by us and related stakeholders, and your unwavering commitment to the project during the mine’s development is admired and respected.
自卡莫阿-卡库拉项目建设 启动 以来，在贵司团队成员辛勤付出和紧密配合的共同努力下，保质保量地完成了卡莫阿铜业所要求的各个节点目标，赢得了卡莫阿铜业及利益 相关方的高度认可。在矿山建设过程中，我们看到了贵司对于本项目的高度重视。
During the critical stage of bringing Phase I into production, we were faced with the challenges presented by the COVID-19 global pandemic – access of personnel was denied and supply of materials was disrupted, and not to mention operational difficulties such as complicated requirements for the construction site and tight schedules. Despite all the adversities, your team under your leadership made massive efforts to manage the progress on time, while actively coordinating with various parties, solving technical problems, as well as organizing and allocating labor resources.
With perseverance and determination, your team were able to overcome cultural differences and obstacles in reaching key project development objectives. The dedication of your team helped us achieve numerous record-breaking results, under stringent control on safety and quality on-site. Together, we have accomplished this significant milestone several months ahead of schedule and on budget, with uncompromised safety standards and outstanding quality.
On behalf of all of us at Ivanhoe Mines, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to you and your team who put their hearts and souls into this formidable undertaking. We appreciate your continuous support for the project’s upcoming development and look forward to the successful completion of the project’s Phase II expansion – leveraging the synergy of our respective advantages to attain yet another remarkable accomplishment. Last but not least, I wish you every success in your endeavors and here’s to a fruitful cooperation in the years to come!
在此，我谨代表艾芬豪矿业由衷地向您及贵司团队为这项艰巨工程所倾入 的心血致以最诚挚的感谢希望贵司未来可以一如既往地大力支持本项目二期扩产工程的建设工作，继续发挥各自的优势，圆满完成后续的工程，携手再创辉煌 最后，祝贵司事业蒸蒸日上，愿双方合作愉快！
