1 Resettlement Action Plan Investing in Infrastructure In addition to construction of infrastructure for its operations and numerous community facilities in its mining concession, TFM has invested in major infrastructure improvement projects that will bring benefits at the provincial and national level. TFM has invested US$140 million in the refurbishment of two transformers at the N Seke Power Station (photo-left), an improvement with far-reaching regional impact. TFM has directly funded repair and refurbishment of the National Highway between the towns of Likasi and Fungurume in Katanga. Ongoing activities focus on maintenance and dust control on the highway. TFM developed and implemented a Resettlement Action Plan (RAP) from 2007 through 2009, and successfully resettled 379 households impacted by the initial project phase. The plan was developed in accordance with national DRC law and international best practice. In a community-based participatory process, local community members and leaders were directly involved in the program to ensure that the new village locations and house construction met the desires expressed by the community. The results of the program include not only improved housing, but access to clean water, health centers and schools, and provide a significant improvement in the quality of life and set a new standard for resettlement projects in the region. The RAP is also committed to livelihood restoration for any household that was economically displaced, including provision of replacement farmland, material and technical assistance support, and training to provide new and improved skills development. Former housing In 2010, TFM commenced working on an addendum to the 2007 Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) that would include an expansion of the TFM plant and mining operations to the Tenke-Fwaulu ore deposits. This ESIA process was completed in the first quarter of 2011 and includes an update to the socio-economic baseline study for the affected communities, public consultation on the project, as well as the development of a Resettlement Action Plan for an additional 70 households that must be relocated because of unavoidable impacts from the mine expansion. Additional farmland will be acquired by the operation, and in order to mitigate these impacts, improved seeds and fertilizer will be provided for three years to help restore livelihoods to previous levels or better. Other alternatives also will be explored to support future economic opportunities in the area. As conducted with the first RAP, TFM will monitor the income levels of project-affected people to measure the effectiveness of livelihood restoration activities. TFM also conducts internal and external monitoring of the Resettlement Action Plan implementation, including an annual third-party audit. An Investment in the Future of the Democratic Republic of Congo Resettlement village New Mulumbu Providing Tools for Growth Economic Development Initiatives Supporting local economies and entrepreneurs in the areas where we operate supports our business and is critical for achieving sustainable development beyond the life of our operations. TFM supports small and medium enterprises (SME s) via access to credit and technical support and training. These SME s in turn generate local employment. In 2010, SME s supported by TFM provided over 100 jobs, 17% of which were filled by women. TFM is currently coaching nine SME s providing up to 280 jobs on a seasonal/rotational basis, 85% of whom are women. TFM also supports 310 households with improved seeds and fertilizers as well as technical assistance in the in-kind farmers corn credit program. Local women entrepreneurs have successfully launched a sewing business under the guidance of TFM s economic development program. TFM s Environmental Commitment Small business capacity-building program for women in Fungurume. Omega Services is among many local contractors generating employment opportunities for local residents. TFM is implementing a plan to salvage and transplant endemic flora species from the primary ore body to conservation areas, engineered ecosystems or to seed banks located in the DRC and internationally. This plan is being implemented with leading scientists from Gembloux University in Belgium and faculty of the University of Lumbumbashi. TFM s environmental management program is based on our objectives to minimize and mitigate environmental impacts and to preserve and enhance biodiversity in the areas where we operate. The Company implements data-driven risk management strategies in conformance with international best practice, and reports its performance against Global Reporting Initiative indicators. Among TFM s environmental commitments was the installation of a permanent synthetic liner beneath the tailings storage facility to prevent any impacts to ground water. This US$40 million investment was the first of its kind at a mining facility on the African continent. Tenke Fungurume Mining SARL 790, Panda Avenue Lubumbashi, Katanga DRC Phone : , , TFM is a dedicated member of its community that is producing copper and cobalt today while working in partnership to build strong, sustainable communities for the future.

2 An Economic Engine For A Nation More Than Mining TFM s presence in Katanga is prompting regional growth. The town of Fungurume is one of the fastest-growing population centers in the Katanga province. This growth brings additional employment and economic opportunity. Tenke Fungurume Mining is the largest private foreign investment in the DRC, providing thousands of jobs, supporting social development and creating economic opportunities across the region and the nation. TFM is actively working with the provincial government, consultants and the private sector to help the local towns of Fungurume, Tenke and other communities in the area grow in an organized and healthy manner. Creating Jobs, Building Capacity Apprentice training program TFM values its role as a model for successful foreign investment in the DRC: an investor who stands by its commitment to build a worldclass operation and infrastructure, fulfills its financial obligations, provides employment and development opportunities for the national workforce, and operates in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. In honoring these commitments, TFM is a leading example, attracting other foreign investors to the DRC, generating revenues for the nation from taxes, royalties, and other payments, increasing employment and developing the nation s resources, economies and infrastructure in a sustainable manner. The current project phase provides employment to approximately 2,500 full-time workers and 1,500 contractors. Approximately 98% of direct TFM employees are DRC citizens. As the project grows, additional opportunities will be created for training and development of the local workforce. TFM s direct contributions through the payment of taxes and other fees from the project inception in 2006 through September 2011 were more than US$460 million. TFM prioritizes the hiring of workers from the communities closest to our operations. However, due to a shortage of skilled workers in the area, training and development programs have been established to ready non-employees from the local communities for future work opportunities. Hundreds of individuals are enrolled in company-provided training programs. TFM also considers investments in social and community development to be a priority. During the same period, the Company made social investments of US$42 million to support sustainable community development initiatives. Foundations For The Future - Education We consider our investments in local education as one of the most important components of our sustainable development program. As part of our commitment to education in the region, TFM has constructed six new elementary schools. Construction and renovation of three high schools have recently been completed in Fungurume and construction is underway on a fourth in Tenke. The schools are managed in partnership with the government and local education providers. These new schools (existing and planned) will provide educational opportunities for an additional 7,000 students. Our education programs include much more than funds for physical structures. Other initiatives include scholarship programs, university partnerships and internships. TFM provided preparatory mathematics and language training for children from the local community culminating in company-funded scholarships for ten local youth to the Mutoshi Technical Institute in Kolwezi for four years. The Lupeto High School in Fungurume is one of two high schools recently renovated and expanded by TFM and handed over to the community. Additionally, TFM contributes 0.3% of net metal sales revenue to the TFM Social Community Fund, and since the commencement of commercial production, these contributions have totaled US$7 million. The TFM Social Community Fund aims to improve quality of life for residents by investing in sustainable community development projects supporting infrastructure and relevant services including health, education and agriculture. The Fund is a Congolese non-governmental organization, governed by a Board of Directors consisting of a representative appointed by the provincial government, two representatives nominated by the local community and four TFM representatives. A Stakeholder Forum consisting of community leaders and representatives advises the Board on community priorities and project funding decisions. TFM s investments in community infrastructure are only a part of a broad ranging sustainable development program with an overarching goal of helping the community to be equipped for a healthy future. TFM has refurbished medical clinics in Fungurume and Tenke, and supports a mobile health clinic that serves outlying communities in the region. (photo - the newly constructed Tenke Clinic next to the old structure) Supporting Healthy Communities Working with government health agencies, international expert organizations and our neighbors to build healthy communities is at the root of our sustainable development program. We dedicate significant resources to reducing public health risks in our area of operations. TFM-supported Mother & Child Clinic After a major cholera epidemic during the rainy season, TFM, in collaboration with the local Heath Zone, installed tanks of potable water throughout the town of Fungurume and in outlying communities. This brought a dramatic reduction in cholera and other waterborne diseases with no cholera cases reported in the area during the past two rainy seasons. TFM has since installed a new clean water distribution system with community taps in Fungurume. Water distribution in Fungurume TFM s agricultural support programs are promoting new small business start-ups and enhancing food security in the region. A community auditorium/gymnasium in Fungurume is one of many new facilities constructed by TFM. Malaria prevalence surveys among local school children are conducted twice a year to establish the impact of the intervention measures. The average prevalence rate of 31% from the May 2010 school survey indicated a decrease of 9% in malaria prevalence compared to the previous year and a 60% decrease compared to the baseline (pre-control) survey conducted in TFM has implemented an integrated malaria control program in the project area to reduce malaria infection for the workforce and the communities in the area. Along with indoor residual insecticide spraying of dwellings to control mosquito malaria vectors, the program has also included monitoring and treatment of mosquito breeding sites, distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets, and awareness and education on malaria prevention measures. TFM s integrated malaria control program elements include indoor residual spraying of structures throughout the region. TFM also provides support for employees and their families through a robust HIV/AIDS prevention, counseling and treatment program. TFM often supports major health initiatives across the region, including a recent vaccination program in coordination with the Health Zone and international health groups to address a measles epidemic in the region.
