Asset Updates

Camino Rojo (2% NSR)

On February 16, 2022, Orla Mining Ltd. (“Orla”) provided an operational update for its Camino Rojo mine. Commissioning activities at Camino Rojo are substantially complete and the first gold pour was achieved on December 13, 2021. The mining and processing throughput rates and availabilities are in line with the ramp up plan and Orla is targeting declaration of commercial production in the first quarter of 2022. Camino Rojo’s oxide mine is expected to produce an average of 120,000 ounces of gold per year over the first five years of operation.

Beta Hunt (4.75% Gold Royalty and 1.5% Nickel Royalty)

On February 14, 2022, Karora Resources Inc. (“Karora”) announced that the development of the second decline at Beta Hunt is underway and ahead of schedule. The addition of the second decline is the key driver for Karora’s plan to double the production capacity of the mine by the end of 2024.

Karora continues to generate positive results from ongoing exploration highlighting the significant upside potential at Beta Hunt. On January 24, 2022, Karora announced that recent drilling results have materially extended the strike length of gold mineralization at the Fletcher Zone to over 500 metres and the mineralization strike length at Gamma Block to over 200 metres. In 2022, Karora plans to drill 43,000 metres to test more of the eight kilometre strike of the gold and nickel mineralized system. Drilling will target extensions to the Western Flanks and A Zone mineral resources, Larkin, the new Fletcher Shear Zone and follow up on the significant gold intersections in the underexplored shear zones south of the Alpha Island and Gamma faults.

Karora also stated that nickel is becoming increasingly important to the company and provided maiden production guidance of 450 to 550 tonnes of nickel for 2022. Production in 2022 will be sourced from remnant nickel resource areas and does not include any nickel production from the newly discovered 50C/Gamma Zone. Karora is committed to developing its nickel potential and has committed 16,000 metres to test and upgrade nickel targets in 2022. Exploration drilling will also be following up on the recent nickel discovery towards the southern end of the mine, aimed at extending the 50C Nickel Trough in the Gamma Block as well as testing for new parallel nickel troughs in the Beta Block.

Gemfield (5% NSR)

On February 22, 2022, Centerra Gold Inc. (“Centerra”) announced it had entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Goldfield District project (“Goldfield”) for $206.5 million. Goldfield is a conventional open-pit, heap leach project located in Esmeralda County, Nevada. Goldfield is comprised of three known deposits including the Gemfield, Goldfield Main, and McMahon deposits. The Gemfield deposit is fully permitted and shovel ready and was identified by Centerra as the first pit for potential development. In 2019, Waterton Global Resource Management, Inc. (“Waterton”), announced it was completing a feasibility study for the project with project average annual production in excess of 125,000 ounces of gold. Centerra expects to release an updated resource estimate in the first half of 2023 and an updated feasibility study thereafter.

Silvertip (2.5% NSR)

On February 16, 2022, Coeur Mining Inc. (“Coeur”) announced that work has commenced to assess the economics of a potential larger expansion and restart of the high-grade Silvertip property in British Columbia. The review is evaluating the potential to target a higher throughput to take advantage of the significant resource growth and on a timetable that would sequence an expansion and restart following completion and commissioning of the Rochester expansion. Results from this ongoing work are expected by the end of the year.

Coeur continues to generate positive results from ongoing exploration as highlighted by the silver, zinc and lead measured and indicated resources increasing year-over-year by approximately 51%, 33% and 44%, respectively. Silver, zinc and lead inferred resources also grew by 48%, 37% and 40%, respectively, during the same period. A total of approximately 102,275 metres were drilled in 2021 and up to seven core drill rigs were active during the fourth quarter (five on surface and two underground) focused on expansion drilling at southern portions and deeper extensions of the Southern Silver, Discovery South and Camp Creek zones. In 2022, Coeur plans to continue the resource growth program and follow up drilling activity on the newly discovered zones. Additionally, ongoing metallurgical test work is continuing to validate Coeur’s assumptions on potential recovery rates and concentrate qualities.

Cautionary statements to U.S. investors

Information contained or referenced in this press release or in the documents referenced herein concerning the properties, technical information and operations of Maverix has been prepared in accordance with requirements and standards under Canadian securities laws, which differ from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) under subpart 1300 of Regulation S-K (“S-K 1300”). The terms “mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” used in this press release or in the documents incorporated by reference herein are mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under guidelines set out in the Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Council. While the terms are substantially similar to the same terms defined under S-K 1300 there are differences in the definitions. Accordingly, there is no assurance any mineral resources that the Company may report under NI 43-101 will be the same as resource estimates prepared under the standards adopted under S-K 1300. Because the Company is eligible for the Multijurisdictional Disclosure System adopted by the SEC and Canadian Securities Administrators, the Company is not required to present disclosure regarding its mineral properties in compliance with S-K 1300.

Non-IRFS Measures

Maverix has included certain performance measures in this news release that do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).

These GEOs when combined with the gold ounces sold from the Company’s gold streams equal total GEOs sold. The presentation of this non-IFRS measure is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. Other companies may calculate this non-IFRS measure differently. The 2022 forecast herein assumes a gold price of $1,750 per ounce and a silver price of $21.00 per ounce. The forecast was derived using information that is available in the public domain as at the date hereof, which included guidance and estimates prepared and issued by management of the operators of the mining operations in which Maverix holds an interest.
