Gold

Portfolio Outperforms

(in U.S. dollars unless otherwise noted)

"We are proud to report record quarterly and half-year results on many financial metrics," stated Paul Brink CEO. "The low-risk nature of our business is most pronounced in today's inflationary environment. Our top-line precious metal stream and royalty interests helped generate our highest margins since starting streaming. Our Energy assets performed well and are the driver behind our record revenues. We are pleased to add exposure to the construction-ready Tocantinzinho gold project and to have received good organic growth news from several of our assets during the quarter, in particular the further expansion of the Detour Lake mine. Franco- Nevada is debt-free and is growing its cash balances."

In Q2 2022, we earned $352.3 million in revenue, up 1.5% from Q2 2021. The growth was primarily driven by higher realized oil and gas prices from our Energy assets. These more than offset the decrease in Precious Metal revenue and resulted in 69.2% of our revenue being sourced from Precious Metal assets (54.1% gold, 10.2% silver, 4.9% PGM). Revenue was sourced 91.7% from the Americas (25.3% South America , 24.1% Central America & Mexico , 25.1% U.S. and 17.2% Canada ).

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Updates

During the quarter, Franco-Nevada was named on the Corporate Knights' 2022 list of the Best 50 Corporate Citizens in Canada . As part of the Tocantinzinho transaction, we committed to $1 million of environmental and community-support programs over 4 years and we continue to expand our community engagement and contributions with existing partners.

Portfolio Additions
  • Financing Package with G Mining Ventures on the Tocantinzinho Gold Project : As previously announced on July 18, 2022 , we acquired, through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Franco-Nevada ( Barbados ) Corporation ("FNBC"), a gold stream with reference to production from the Tocantinzinho project, owned by G Mining Ventures Corp. ("G Mining Ventures") and located in Pará State, Brazil (the "Stream"). FNBC will provide a deposit of $250 million . Additionally, through one of our wholly-owned subsidiaries, we agreed to provide G Mining Ventures with a $75.0 million secured term loan (the "Term Loan"). We also subscribed for $27.5 million of G Mining Ventures' common shares ("G Mining Common Shares").
  • Acquisition of Caserones Royalty in Chile : On April 14, 2022 , we acquired, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, an effective 0.4582% NSR on JX Nippon Mining & Metals Group's producing Caserones copper-molybdenum mine located in the Atacama Region of northern Chile for an aggregate purchase price of $37.4 million . Franco- Nevada is entitled to royalty payments in respect of the period commencing January 1, 2022 . The last quarterly distribution attributable to Franco-Nevada was $1.2 million .
Q2 2022 Portfolio Updates

Precious Metal assets: GEOs from our Precious Metal assets were 131,574, compared to 145,937 GEOs sold in Q2 2021. Higher contributions from Hemlo , Gold Quarry and Subika (Ahafo) were more than offset by lower deliveries from Antamina, Guadalupe, Goldstrike and Stillwater .

South America :

  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold in Q2 2022 were consistent with Q2 2021. On August 1, 2022 , Lundin Mining reported that a sinkhole was detected near its Minera Ojos del Salado operation in Chile . As a preventive measure, development work in an area of the Alcaparrosa underground mine, which is part of the Minera Ojos del Salado operation and contributes approximately 5% to the overall ore processed annually by Candelaria , was temporarily suspended. Lundin Mining reported that it does not expect this event to impact annual guidance for Candelaria .
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were lower in Q2 2022 compared to Q2 2021 due to anticipated lower grades in 2022 and a temporarily elevated strip ratio.
  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were lower in Q2 2022 compared to Q2 2021. As expected, silver ounces sold decreased in the current quarter compared to the prior year period when silver production was particularly strong. In addition, the decrease in GEOs reflects a less favourable GEO conversion ratio when compared to the 2021 period.
  • Cascabel (1% royalty) – In May 2022 , SolGold provided an updated mineral resource estimate for its Tandayama-America deposit at the Cascabel project. The Mineral Resource was updated to 528.5 million tonnes at 0.36% copper equivalent for 1.27 million tonnes of copper, and 3.16 million ounces of gold in the Measured and Indicated categories, representing an increase in contained metal of approximately 0.74 million tonnes of copper and 1.96 million ounces of gold compared to the maiden mineral resource estimate.

Central America & Mexico :

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – Cobre Panama delivered record copper production of 90,778 tonnes in Q2 2022 and achieved a record mill throughput of 21.2 million tonnes, attributable to increased plant stability and continuous improvement projects. GEOs sold were relatively consistent with those sold in Q2 2021 due to the timing of shipments. On July 26, 2022 , First Quantum reported that Panama has been experiencing civil unrest, largely focused on temporary blockades to transport routes in the main cities. Production at Cobre Panama has been undisrupted and First Quantum continues to monitor the situation closely.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – GEOs sold from Guadalupe-Palmarejo decreased in Q2 2022 compared to the same quarter in 2021, with a lower proportion of production being sourced from ground covered by our stream and timing of deliveries.
  • Milpillas ( $0.04 /lb copper royalty) – In August 2022 , Industrias Peñoles announced that mining, crushing and ore deposit activities resumed at the Milpillas copper mine. Operations were suspended in Q2 2020 as a result of low copper prices.

U.S.:

  • Stillwater (5% royalty) – GEOs from Stillwater decreased compared to Q2 2021 due to lower realized palladium and platinum prices. In June 2022 , Sibanye-Stillwater reported a significant flood event which affected its U.S. PGM operations. Sibanye-Stillwater estimates that operations at the mine will remain suspended for part of Q3 2022 before safe access to the mine is restored and production can resume.
  • Copper World/East Pit ( Rosemont ) (2.085% royalty) – In May 2022 , Hudbay announced that the U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed a prior ruling to vacate and remand the U.S. Forest Service's Final Record of Decision for the Rosemont project. While Hudbay is reviewing the decision, it is continuing to advance its Copper World project and in July 2022 , filed a Preliminary Economic Assessment outlining a two-phase mine plan. Hudbay is currently advancing a pre-feasibility study and expects to submit applications for key state-level permits for Phase I in H2 2022. Phase I reflects a standalone operation on private land and patented mining claims.
  • Marigold (0.5-5% royalties) – SSR Mining reported that Marigold is progressing towards a strong second half of the year, with higher grade ore expected to be accessed in the second and third quarters of 2022.
  • Stibnite ( 1.7% royalty ) – Perpetua Resources announced that permitting continues to progress at its Stibnite Gold project. Perpetua Resources received the Clean Air Act Permit to Construct, its first permit for the project.

Canada :

  • Detour Lake (2% royalty) – In Q2 2022, Agnico Eagle reported that it completed a technical evaluation which extended the expected mine life of Detour by 10 years to 2052 and increased gold reserves by 38% to 20.4 million ounces of gold (835.1 million tonnes at 0.76 grams per tonne of gold). Agnico Eagle is also evaluating the potential to expand operations to 32 million tonnes per year, develop an underground mining operation, and increase production to 1.0 million ounces or more per year.
  • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Revenue from Hemlo was significantly higher than in Q2 2021 reflecting an increase in production on royalty lands and an improvement in operating costs. Barrick expects continued underground productivity improvements throughout 2022.
  • Brucejack (1.2% royalty) – In March 2022 , Newcrest Mining completed its acquisition of Pretium and the Brucejack mine and, in June 2022 , reported that its three-phase transformation program, which aims to optimize operations and grow the mineral resource, is progressing well.
  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI) – Agnico Eagle reported that the focus at Macassa remains on completing Shaft #4 infrastructure, which is expected to occur close to year-end 2022, and ramping up production. At the Amalgamated Kirkland deposit, two underground and two surface drills are working to infill and expand the existing mineral resource. Agnico Eagle is evaluating the deposit as a potential ore source for the Macassa mine. Franco- Nevada has multiple royalties at Macassa that include Amalgamated Kirkland.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – Agnico Eagle reported that the Odyssey underground project, which is expected to extend the life of the complex to at least 2039, is progressing on schedule and on budget, with initial pre-commercial production expected near the end of Q1 2023. Recent drilling has extended the East Gouldie deposit from the current mineral resource outline.
  • I sland Gold (0.62% royalty) – In June 2022 , Alamos Gold reported the results of the Phase 3+ expansion study, which outlined average annual gold production of 287,000 ounces starting in 2026, an 18-year mine life to 2039 while operating at 20% higher production rates of 2,400 tonnes per day, and a 43% increase in mineable resource to 4.6 million ounces of gold grading 10.59 grams per tonne. Completion of the Phase 3+ expansion is expected in 2026.
  • Greenstone (Hardrock) (3% royalty) – In July 2022 , Equinox Gold reported that construction of the project is on schedule and budget. The Greenstone project is 35% complete and expected to pour first gold in H1 2024.
  • Valentine Lake (2% royalty) – In July 2022 , Marathon Gold reported an updated Mineral Resource estimate of 4.0 million ounces of gold (64.6 million tonnes at 1.90 grams per tonne of gold), representing an increase of 26% in ounces, 14% in tonnes, and 10% in grade compared to the previous estimate.
  • Ring of Fire (1-3% royalties) – On May 4, 2022 , following the acquisition of Noront Resources by Wyloo Metals, we received $42.7 million as full repayment of the loan we extended to Noront in April 2015 . We continue to own several royalties over Wyloo's property in the Ring of Fire.

Rest of World:

  • Tasiast (2% royalty) Kinross reported that the process plant averaged 21,000 tonnes per day during June 2022 and that the second phase of the Tasiast 24k project, which aims to reach throughput of 24,000 tonnes per day by mid-2023, is continuing to progress on schedule.
  • Subika (2% royalty) – Newmont announced that it had reduced 2022 production guidance for Ahafo by 80,000 ounces from 650,000 ounces due to challenges related to labor availability and supply chain disruptions.
  • Séguéla ( 1.2% royalty ) – Fortuna Silver Mines reported that construction activities are progressing on time and on budget with the overall project 64% complete as of June 30, 2022 , with first gold pour expected in mid-2023.

Diversified assets: Our Diversified assets, primarily comprising our Iron Ore and Energy interests, generated $108.5 million in revenue, up from $85.2 million in Q2 2021. The increase is primarily due to higher realized oil and gas prices relating to our Energy assets.

Iron Ore:

  • Vale Royalty (iron ore royalty) – We recorded $10.1 million in revenue from our Vale Royalty compared to $28.0 million in Q2 2021. Due to the timing of the acquisition of the Vale royalty, which closed in April 2021 , revenue recorded in Q2 2021 included two quarters' worth of royalties.
  • LIORC – LIORC declared a cash dividend of C$0.90 per common share, reflecting lower iron ore prices, compared to C$1.75 per common share in Q2 2021. Iron Ore Company of Canada reported significant capital expenditures to upgrade existing infrastructure at the Carol Lake mine.

Energy:

  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – Revenue from the Marcellus asset increased compared to Q2 2021. Revenues benefited from significantly higher NGL and natural gas prices, partly offsetting a slight decrease in production.
  • Haynesville (various royalty rates) – Revenue from the Haynesville portfolio increased compared to Q2 2021, reflecting current high NGL and natural gas prices and production from high royalty rate wells.
  • SCOOP/STACK ( various royalty rates) – Revenue from the SCOOP/STACK increased compared to Q2 2021 due to higher prices.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Revenue from the Permian basin increased compared to Q2 2021. The increase in revenue in the current period reflects higher realized prices, an increase in drilling activity levels and production sourced from wells that carry relatively high royalty rates.
  • Weyburn (NRI, ORR, WI) – Revenue from the Weyburn Unit was significantly higher compared to Q2 2021, reflecting the increase in commodity prices and the operating leverage of our NRI.

ENDNOTES:
  1. GEOs: Starting in Q4 2021, revenue from Franco-Nevada's Energy assets is included in the calculation of GEOs. GEOs for comparative periods have been recalculated to conform with the current presentation. GEOs include Franco-Nevada's attributable share of production from our Mining and Energy assets after applicable recovery and payability factors. GEOs are estimated on a gross basis for NSRs and, in the case of stream ounces, before the payment of the per ounce contractual price paid by the Company. For NPI royalties, GEOs are calculated taking into account the NPI economics. Silver, platinum, palladium, iron ore, oil, gas and other commodities are converted to GEOs by dividing associated revenue, which includes settlement adjustments, by the relevant gold price. The price used in the computation of GEOs earned from a particular asset varies depending on the royalty or stream agreement, which may make reference to the market price realized by the operator, or the average price for the month, quarter, or year in which the commodity was produced or sold. For Q2 2022, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,872 /oz gold (Q2 2021 - $1,816 ), $22.64 /oz silver (Q2 2021 - $26.69 ), $957 /oz platinum (Q2 2021 - $1,180 ) and $2,092 /oz palladium (Q2 2021 - $2,788 ), $143 /t Fe 62% CFR China (Q2 2021 - $232 ), $108.41 /bbl WTI oil (Q2 2021 - $66.09 ) and $7.49 /mcf Henry Hub natural gas (Q2 2021 - $2.97 ). For H1 2022 prices, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,873 /oz gold (H1 2021 - $1,805 ), $23.29 /oz silver (H1 2021 - $26.47 ), $993 /oz platinum (H1 2021 - $1,170 ) and $2,207 /oz palladium (H1 2021 - $2,593 ), $142 /t Fe 62% CFR China (H1 2021 - $212 ), $101.35 /bbl WTI oil (H1 2021 - $55.80 ) and $6.03 /mcf Henry Hub natural gas (H1 2021 - $2.85 ).


  2.

Gold Mining in Ecuador

With a strong minerals market, favourable government regulations, rich deposits and a strong industry presence, Ecuador is an incredibly attractive investment opportunity for Australian companies.

According to The Fraser Institute's 2021 annual survey of mining and exploration companies, Ecuador is the second most attractive destination in Latin America for mining investment. It's also notable for hosting some of the most attractive gold, silver and copper deposits in the region, many of which remain underexplored. The country's government, meanwhile, has been open about its plan to support mining industry growth.

Thus far, that plan has largely succeeded, with Ecuador's mining exports increasing by 74 percent in 2021. With investments by several powerhouse mining companies and increasing demand for the country's major mineral exports, the coming years will likely see similar growth. Moreover, because Australia is already a major investor in Ecuador, the two countries have existing multiple bilateral agreements in place.
