“This investment by one of the mining industry’s foremost royalty companies is another significant endorsement for the Gunnison Copper Project,” said Excelsior’s President and CEO, Stephen Twyerould. “As we transition into the next new copper producer in the United States, we do so from a position of fiscal strength supported by excellent funding partners such as Altius.”

 

“We have been continually impressed by Excelsior’s ability to overcome challenging conditions and to ultimately deliver the Gunnison Copper Project to this construction decision milestone. We offer our sincere congratulations to the team and look forward to Gunnison becoming the 16th paying royalty in our portfolio,” said Brian Dalton, President and CEO of Altius.

 

The terms of the Construction GRR are Altius has paid C$5.0 million for a gross revenue royalty that is equal to (i) 0.625% while the plant capacity of all the plants operated or constructed by the Company or its affiliates for use in connection with the Gunnison Copper Project is less than 75 million lbs. of copper per annum; and (ii) 0.5% while the Plant Capacity is greater than or equal to 75 million lbs. of copper per annum.
