About Pensana Plc 
The electrification of motive power is the most important part of the energy 
transition if we are to tackle climate change and one of the biggest energy 
transitions in history. Magnet metal rare earths are central to that 
transition, forming a critical part of the technology for efficient electric 
vehicle motors and offshore wind turbines. 
Pensana plans to establish its Saltend processing hub as an independent and 
sustainable supplier of the key rare earth magnet metal oxides to a market 
which is currently dominated by China. 
The US$195 million Saltend facility is being designed to produce circa 12,500 
tonnes per annum of rare earth products, of which 4,500 tonnes will be 
neodymium and praseodymium oxide (NdPrO), representing over 5% of the world 
market in 2025. 
Pensana's plug-and-play facility is located within the world-class Saltend 
Chemicals Park, a cluster of leading chemicals and renewable energy businesses 
in the Humber Freeport and will create over 500 jobs during construction and 
over 125 direct jobs once in production. 
Powered by low-carbon offshore wind, it will be the first major separation 
facility to be established in over a decade and will become one of the few 
major producers located outside China. 
Feedstock will be shipped as a clean, high purity mixed rare earth sulphate 
(MRES) from the Company's Longonjo low-impact operations in Angola. The mine's 
state-of-the-art concentrator and proprietary MRES processing plant are 
designed by Wood to the highest international standards. 
The operations will be powered by renewable energy from hydroelectric power and 
connected to the Port of Lobito by the recently upgraded Benguela railway line. 
Pensana believes that provenance of critical rare earth materials supply, life 
cycle analysis and GHG Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions will all become significant 
factors in supply chains for major customers. 
The Company intends to offer customers an independently and sustainably sourced 
supply of the metal oxides and carbonates of increasing importance to a range 
of applications central to addressing the energy transition. 
Pensana is also aiming to establish Saltend as an attractive alternative to 
mining houses that may otherwise be limited to selling their products to China, 
having designed the facility to be easily adapted to cater for a range of rare 
earth feedstocks.
