1.         Does the entity expect that it will continue to have the current level of net operating cash flows for the time being and, if not, why not?


Answer: No. The Company has signed final agreement with CEZ Group regarding its investment in Cinovec Project on 27 March 2020. This has reduced the Company's holding in Geomet to 49% and the Company will cease to consolidate Geomet's results within the Company's consolidated accounts. The Company has been appointed to provide services of managing the Cinovec project development.


2.         Has the entity taken any steps, or does it propose to take any steps, to raise further cash to fund its operations and, if so, what are those steps and how likely does it believe that they will be successful?


Answer: Yes. On 14 July 2020, the Company has secured $1m funding facility with 6466 Investments Pty Ltd to assist in financing European Investor Relations initiatives, proposed listing in Czech (Refer to ASX Announcement dated 14 July 2020) and its ongoing operations. The Company made its first drawdown of A$250k on 17 July 2020. (Refer to ASX Announcements dated 14 July 2020 and 17 July 2020.)


3.         Does the entity expect to be able to continue its operations and to meet its business objectives and, if so, on what basis?


Answer: Yes. There is sufficient cash available to continue meeting the current business objective.
