Additional Information Asset Counts Acreage of Assets w vie er Franco-Nevada’s assets are categorized by commodity and stage of The following is a tabulation of the acreage of Precious Metals and v O development. By commodity, assets are characterized as “Precious Metals” Diversified lands subject to Franco Nevada’s royalty, stream or other or “Diversified”. “Precious Metals” includes gold, silver and PGM assets. interests as at March 31, 2023. Acreage amounts are approximate “Diversified” includes iron ore, other mining and energy assets (which or estimated and are compiled from information contained in asset encompass oil, gas and natural gas liquids). “Producing” assets are those agreements and updated when possible using various sources including that have generated revenue from steady-state operations for Franco- government recording offices, operator information such as technical Nevada or are expected to in the next year. “Advanced” assets are interests reports, presentations and other sources.
