BHP Group Plc Proxy Form Registered in England and Wales Number 3196209 All correspondence to: Computershare Investor Services (Pty) Ltd. Private Bag X9000 Saxonwold 2132 Telephone: 011 373 0033 Facsimile: 011 688 5217 LODGEMENT OF YOUR PROXY To be valid, this proxy form must be received by 10.00am (South African local time) on Tuesday 12 October 2021 Any proxy form (and any relevant authorities under which it is signed) received after that time will not be valid for the scheduled meeting. How to complete this proxy form Every holder has the right to appoint some other person(s) of their choice, who need not be a shareholder, as their proxy to exercise all or any of their rights to attend, speak and vote on their behalf. If you wish to appoint a person other than the Chair of the Meeting, please insert the name of your chosen proxy holder in the space provided (see reverse). If the proxy is being appointed in relation to less than your full voting entitlement, please enter in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. If left blank, your proxy will be deemed to be authorised in respect of your full voting entitlement (or if this proxy form has been issued in respect of a designated account for a shareholder, the full voting entitlement for that designated account). Beneficial holders of shares dematerialised into STRATE, who do not have securities registered in their own name but who wish to attend the Meeting, should promptly contact their CSDP or stockbroker to obtain a letter of representation to enable them to do so. Alternatively, should they not wish to attend the Meeting in person, these holders should promptly provide their voting instructions directly to their CSDP or stockbroker. Appointment of additional proxies You may appoint more than one proxy provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise rights attached to different shares. You may not appoint more than one proxy to exercise rights attached to any one share. To appoint more than one proxy, additional proxy form(s) may be obtained by contacting the Share Registrar’s helpline listed below under “Any questions?”, or you may photocopy this form. Please indicate in the box next to the proxy holder’s name (see reverse) the number of shares in relation to which they are authorised to act as your proxy. Please also indicate by ticking the box provided if the proxy instruction is one of multiple instructions being given. All forms must be signed and should be returned together in the same envelope. Directing your proxy how to vote If you wish to direct your proxy how to vote (or to abstain from voting) on any resolution, place a mark (“X”) in the “For”, “Against” or “Vote Withheld” box for each resolution. The “Vote Withheld” option is provided to enable you to withhold your vote on any particular resolution. However, it should be noted that a “Vote Withheld” is not a vote in law and will not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes “For” and “Against” a resolution. In the absence of instructions and to the extent permitted by law, your proxy may vote or withhold the vote as he or she thinks fit. IMPORTANT NOTE: In this proxy form, BHP Group Plc and BHP Group Limited together are referred to as BHP. The key management personnel (‘KMP’) of BHP (which includes each of the Directors) and their closely related parties will not be able to vote as your proxy on Items 7, 8 and 9 unless you tell them how to vote or, if the Chair of the Meeting is your proxy, you expressly authorise him or her to vote even though Items 7, 8 and 9 are connected with the remuneration of the KMP. If you intend to appoint a member of the KMP as your proxy, you can direct them to vote for or against or to abstain from voting on Items 7, 8 and 9 by marking the appropriate boxes on the proxy form. Signing instructions You must sign this proxy form as follows in the spaces provided: Individual: Where the holding is in one name, the proxy form must be signed by the shareholder or the shareholder’s attorney. Joint holding: Where the holding is in more than one name, any one of the joint holders may sign the proxy form but the vote of the senior who renders a vote whether in person or by proxy shall be accepted to the exclusion of the votes of the other joint holders. Seniority is determined by the order in which the names stand in the Company’s Share Register. Power of Attorney or Relevant Authority: If this form is signed by a person who is not the registered shareholder, then the relevant authority or a certified copy of it should either have been exhibited previously to the Share Registrar by the time above or be enclosed with this form, and the words “authorised signatory” should be added under the signature on the reverse of this form. Companies: Where the holding is in the name of a company, then this form must be given under the common seal of the company or executed in a manner having the same effect, or under the hand of an authorised officer or attorney who has not received any notice of revocation of that authority. Electronic proxy lodgement (certificated shareholders only): To appoint a proxy electronically go to bhp.com or eproxyappointment.com, then follow the instructions. You can also use the BHP mobile voting service for smartphones.
