ACCEPT THE ZIJIN MINING OFFER

Important information for all shareholders

Nevsun's Board of Directors unanimously recommends that you ACCEPT Zijin's friendly offer.

In the Board's view, Zijin's all-cash offer of C$6.00 per Nevsun share:

  • Represents an attractive premium
  • Provides certainty and immediate liquidity for shareholders

Please see below for more details about the Zijin offer. We will continue to update this page with new materials as they become available, and we urge our shareholders to return regularly.

Shareholders should tender their shares to Zijin to ACCEPT the Offer.

The Zijin Offer is open for acceptance until the Expiry Time, which is currently 5:00 pm (Toronto time) on December 28, 2018.

Registered Nevsun shareholders who wish to accept the Zijin Offer must properly complete and execute the Letter of Transmittal (printed on pink paper) accompanying the Zijin Circular, and deposit it, together with certificate(s) or DRS Statement(s) representing their Nevsun Shares at or prior to December 28, 2018 at 5:00pm (Toronto time) (the Expiry Time) at the office of the Depositary specified in the Letter of Transmittal.

Detailed rules and instructions are contained in the Letter of Transmittal. Alternatively, Nevsun shareholders may follow the procedure for guaranteed delivery described in section three of the Zijin Circular, "Manner of Acceptance – Procedure for Guaranteed Delivery", using the accompanying Notice of Guaranteed Delivery (printed on green paper).

Nevsun shareholders will not be required to pay any fee or commission if they accept the Zijin Offer by transmitting their Nevsun Shares directly to the Depositary. However, a broker or other Intermediary through whom you own your Nevsun Shares may charge a fee to deposit Nevsun Shares on your behalf. You should consult your broker or other Intermediary to determine whether any charges will apply.

Nevsun shareholders are invited to contact the Depositary at the address and telephone number below for further information regarding how to accept the Zijin Offer.
