SolGold completed a prefeasibility study on the Cascabel project in Cascabel (Alpala) April 2022. The prefeasibility study contemplated an underground 1% NSR Area COLOMBIA block cave and outlined a Probable Mineral Reserve containing Cascabel 9.4 million ounces of gold, 3.3 million tonnes of copper, and 30 million EQUADOR ounces of silver (558 million tonnes grading 0.52 g/t Au, 0.58% Cu and N 0 1 BRAZIL 1.65 g/t Ag). The inclusive Measured and Indicated Mineral Resource km PERU Pacific comprised 2,663 million tonnes at 0.53% CuEq for 21.7 million ounces Rocafuerte Ocean BOLIVIA Site Office of gold, 9.9 million tonnes of copper, and 92.2 million ounces of silver. The prefeasibility study contemplates an initial 26-year mine life, with CHILE potential mine life upside in excess of 50 years following the initial life ARGENTINA of mine. On achieving nameplate capacity, an average of approximately 190,000 tonnes of copper, 680,000 ounces of gold and 1.4 million ounces F r on tier erse of silver per year is expected over the initial five years of production. ansv r T Hw y Exploration has yielded encouraging results on the broader Cascabel 0.1% CuEq Tandayama concessions with the identification of a highly mineralized system at America TAM, which is located approximately 3 km north of the Alpala deposit, Aguinaga that has open-pit mining potential, and is covered by the Franco-Nevada 0.1% CuEq royalty. SolGold declared a maiden mineral resource at TAM in October 2021 with a subsequent update in May 2022 comprising 528.5 million tonnes at 0. 36% copper equivalent containing 1.27 million tonnes of copper and 3.16 million ounces of gold in Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources, plus 105.1 million tonnes at 0.36% copper equivalent containing 0.26 million tonnes of copper and 0.62 million ounces of gold in the Inferred category. 0.1% Copper Equivalent 1.0% CuEq Alpala 0.4% Copper Equivalent 0.4% CuEq One of the largest copper-gold development 1.0% Copper Equivalent Alpala 0.1% CuEq Camp projects in the world Tracks Royalty Claim Area Prefeasibility study released in April 2022 34 Franco-Nevada Corporation TSX / NYSE: FNV
