Bushfire incident at Forrestania

Western Areas Ltd (“Western Areas” or the “Company”) advises that a bush fire incident has occurred on Wednesday

The incident, believed to have started from a lightning strike, resulted in the temporary suspension of operations and
activation of the FNO fire safety protocols for all personnel. The immediate fire risk to people and assets has now
