Sandeep Singh, President and CEO of Osisko commented on the activities of the third quarter of 2021: “In the third quarter, our royalty and streaming business continued to generate record revenues and operating cash flows led by our core assets. Ramp up at the Eagle gold mine progressed successfully, hitting records for total material mined, ore stacked and gold produced. At Mantos Blancos, we forecast an imminent increase in deliveries as the debottlenecking project concludes. Exploration and development activities at the Malartic underground project are exceeding our expectations. The recent proposed merger between Agnico Eagle and Kirkland Lake also unlocks interesting synergy potential for our 2% NSR royalties in the region (including Upper Beaver and Amalgamated Kirkland). Overall, Osisko continues to benefit from meaningful positive catalysts across our portfolio of assets.”

Other Highlights

 

  • Acquired a 2.75% NSR royalty on the Tocantinzinho gold project for cash consideration of US$10 million ($12.6 million). The operator of Tocantinzinho has a one-time buy-down option in relation to the royalty. At the time of project construction, the operator may make a payment of US$5.5 million to reduce the royalty percentage by 2% resulting in a royalty of 0.75%. Pursuant to a pre-existing agreement, the buy-down payment is payable to the original royalty owners.
  • Increased the amount available under the revolving credit facility by $150.0 million to $550.0 million, with an additional uncommitted accordion of up to $100.0 million (for a total availability of up to $650.0 million). The maturity date of the facility was extended to July 30, 2025, which can be extended annually.
  • Declared a quarterly dividend of $0.055 per common share payable on October 15, 2021 to shareholders of record as of the close of business on September 30, 2021, a dividend increase of 10%.

Osisko Development Update

 

Cariboo Gold Project

 

Osisko Development has drilled approximately 150,000 metres, of its planned 200,000 metre 2021 program, to expand and delineate the known and new vein corridors and deposits of the Cariboo gold project. Management of Osisko Development believes that it has completed sufficient drilling for a mineral resource update to be used towards a feasibility study in the first half of 2022. Exploration during the quarter was focused on the expansion of the Lowhee Zone and further delineation of the Valley, Mosquito and Shaft deposits. The Cow Mountain Underground Bulk Sample Permit was received in July 2021 and bulk sample activities are anticipated in 2022 now that the underground portal is complete.

 

Bonanza Ledge Phase II Project

 

Osisko Development started mining operations at its Bonanza Ledge Phase II project in the first quarter of 2021. The project is a small scale and short life operation, which allows Osisko Development to facilitate (i) opportunities for managing historical reclamation obligations inherited by the company, (ii) hands on training and commissioning of the company’s mining and processing complex for the Cariboo gold project and (iii) maintain the economic and social benefits for the First Nations partners and communities.

 

In the third quarter of 2021, Osisko Development incurred an impairment charge of $22.4 million on the Bonanza Ledge Phase II project, triggered by continuing operational challenges leading to lower production and revenues than originally planned.

 

San Antonio Gold Project

 

Approximately 11,800 metres of infill drilling was completed during the third quarter at the San Antonio gold project in Sonora, Mexico, and 22,724 meters year-to-date. First drill results from the project are pending. Osisko Development is planning to commence processing, via heap leach, of the 1.1 million tonne stockpile in November. Permitting for production, via heap leach, of the Sapuchi oxide mineralization is also on schedule and granting of the permit is anticipated in the first half of 2022.

 

The stockpile inventory was revalued at its net recoverable amount during the third quarter following a decrease in the gold price and an increase in the expected processing and transportation costs, resulting in an impairment charge of $11.0 million.

The scientific and technical content of this news release has been reviewed and approved by Guy Desharnais, Ph.D., P.Geo., Vice President, Project Evaluation at Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd, who is a “qualified person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects.

 

About Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd

 

Osisko Gold Royalties Ltd is an intermediate precious metal royalty company focused on the Americas that commenced activities in June 2014. Osisko holds a North American focused portfolio of over 160 royalties, streams and precious metal offtakes. Osisko’s portfolio is anchored by its cornerstone asset, a 5% net smelter return royalty on the Canadian Malartic mine, which is the largest gold mine in Canada.

 

Notes:
 
(1) Gold equivalent ounces are calculated on a quarterly basis and include royalties, streams and offtakes. Silver earned from royalty and stream agreements has been converted to gold equivalent ounces by multiplying the silver ounces by the average silver price for the period and dividing by the average gold price for the period. Diamonds, other metals and cash royalties were converted into gold equivalent ounces by dividing the associated revenue by the average gold price for the period. Offtake agreements were converted using the financial settlement equivalent divided by the average gold price for the period.

(5) The Company has included certain non-IFRS measures including “Adjusted Earnings” and “Adjusted Earnings per basic share” to supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are presented in accordance with IFRS.

The Company believes that these measures, together with measures determined in accordance with IFRS, provide investors with an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. Non-IFRS measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore they may not be comparable to similar measures employed by other companies. The data 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.

“Adjusted earnings (loss)” is defined as “Net earnings (loss)” adjusted for certain items: “Foreign exchange gain (loss)”, “Impairment of assets”, including impairment on financial assets and investments in associates, “Gains (losses) on disposal of exploration and evaluation assets”, “Unrealized gain (loss) on investments”, “Share of loss of associates”, “Deferred premium income on flow-through shares”, “Deferred income tax expense (recovery)” and other unusual items such as transaction costs.

Adjusted earnings (loss) per basic share is obtained from the “adjusted earnings (loss)” divided by the “Weighted average number of common shares outstanding” for the period.
