*  As announced on 18 May 2020, the Board reduced its recommendation in respect of the 2019 Final Dividend to 7.1 cents per ordinary share (down from 23.4 cents per ordinary share). It was this reduced amount that was approved by shareholders.

** Result of the votes cast by shareholders excluding the controlling shareholders.

Notes to the poll results

1.    Any proxy votes that were at the discretion of the Chairman are included in the total of "votes for" each resolution.

2.    Percentages of votes for and votes against each resolution are included on the basis of votes cast and therefore exclude abstentions.

3.    The Company had in issue 985,856,695 Ordinary Shares carrying one vote each, and 2,000,000 5% Cumulative Preference Shares carrying 100 votes each. Accordingly, the total number of votes available was 1,185,856,695 votes and the total number of votes available excluding the controlling shareholders was 350,086,090 votes at the Annual General Meeting.

These results will be published within "news" in the "media" section of the website of Antofagasta plc, www.antofagasta.co.uk.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of resolutions 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21 passed at the Annual General Meeting will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism today and will shortly be available for inspection at https://www.fca.org.uk/markets/primary-markets/regulatory-disclosures/national-storage-mechanism
