Written on the 22 September 2017


Sheffield Resources Limited ("Sheffield", "the Company") (ASX: SFX) is pleased to advise that the Federal Court has dismissed the appeal lodged by the Mount Jowlaenga Polygon #2 claimant group against a decision by the National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) that Sheffield had negotiated in good faith (see ASX release dated 17 July 2017).

The decision by the Court means that the determination by the NNTT stands and that the Mining Lease at Thunderbird can be granted.

As this was a decision by a single judge of the Federal Court there is a period within which the matter can be appealed to the Full Federal Court.

Sheffield's Managing Director Bruce McFadzean said the decision by the Court was a terrific result for shareholders and in particular the local community.

"We have received overwhelming support from the local region and we look forward to advancing Thunderbird to unlock benefits and opportunities for all stakeholders.

"Sheffield has pledged a commitment to local employment, with a particular emphasis on supporting aboriginal employment as evidenced through our recently implemented work ready program" he said.
