For Q3/2021, revenue was sourced 82.6% from Mining assets (53.5% gold, 13.1% silver, 5.3% PGM and 10.7% other Mining assets). Energy assets contributed 17.4% (8.8% oil, 6.7% gas and 1.9% NGL). Our current acquisition focus is to grow the precious metal side of our business, but we will also add opportunistically in other mining commodities if good assets are available. A strength of our diversified portfolio is that we benefit from the relative outperformance of different commodities over time. Geographically, revenue was sourced 91.2% from the Americas (33.1% South America , 23.6% Central America & Mexico , 19.8% U.S. and 14.7% Canada ).

Increased 2021 Energy Guidance

Based on the increase in oil and gas prices and the performance of its Energy portfolio, Franco-Nevada is pleased to raise its Energy revenue guidance. Energy revenue is now expected to range from $195 to $205 million , an increase from the prior range of $155 to $170 million . Franco-Nevada is on track to meet the previously announced GEO guidance of 590,000 to 615,000 GEOs for 2021. Commodity prices used for the remainder of 2021 in our revised guidance are the following: $1,750 /oz Au, $22.00 /oz Ag, $950 /oz Pt, $2,000 /oz Pd, $110 /t Fe 65% CFR China, $70 /bbl WTI and $4.00 /mcf Henry Hub.

Please see our annual MD&A and Q3/2021 MD&A for more details on our guidance and see "Forward-Looking Statements" below.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Updates

Franco-Nevada continues to receive top rankings from ESG agencies and during the quarter had its Prime rating reaffirmed by ISS ESG.  The Company recently added to its community programs, committing to fund water supply infrastructure to communities around Antapaccay. The Company is also partnering with Continental Resources to fund a pilot project for solar-powered water recycling.  An added diversity initiative was the award of the first Franco-Nevada diversity scholarship to a student entering mining engineering at the University of Toronto .

Q3/2021 Portfolio Updates

Gold Equivalent Ounces Sold: GEOs sold for the quarter were 146,495, an increase of 8.7% from the 134,817 sold in Q3/2020. Higher contributions from Cobre Panama and Antamina, as well as the additions of the Vale Royalty Debentures and Condestable stream, were partly offset by lower deliveries from Hemlo . There was limited impact from COVID-19 on our assets this quarter, in comparison to Q3/2020, where a number of our assets were impacted by suspensions of production.

South America :

  • Antamina (22.5% silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were significantly higher in Q3/2021 than in Q3/2020, which was impacted by a temporary suspension of production. In addition, changes in gold and silver prices in the current period have resulted in a more favourable GEO conversion ratio than in the prior period.
  • Antapaccay (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold were lower in Q3/2021 than in Q3/2020 due to lower grades as anticipated in the life of mine plan.
  • Candelaria (gold and silver stream) – GEOs delivered and sold decreased in Q3/2021 relative to Q3/2020. Production at Candeleria was lower this quarter than in the prior year quarter due to changes in mine sequencing which have reduced 2021 copper and gold production guidance and are also expected to impact the operation's life of mine plan. Lundin is also aiming to improve mill throughput and address grade reconciliation.
  • Condestable (gold and silver stream) – Franco-Nevada received its second quarter of deliveries from the recently acquired stream, with the asset contributing 3,127 GEOs in Q3/2021. Deliveries from Condestable are a fixed amount of ounces through the end of 2025.
  • Vale Royalty Debentures (iron ore royalty) – Franco-Nevada accrued an estimated $21.7 million , or 12,101 GEOs, in Q3/2021, of which $5.6 million , or 3,109, GEOs, relates to H1/2021. The royalty payment received for H1/2021 exceeded our accrual due to higher average realized iron ore prices. In Q3/2021, iron ore prices decreased after achieving record highs in mid-2021 while deductible transportation costs increased. Year-to-date, we have recorded 27,594 GEOs.

Central America & Mexico :

  • Cobre Panama (gold and silver stream) – GEOs increased in Q3/2021 relative to one year earlier, which was impacted by a suspension of operations due to COVID-19. Cobre Panama's production in Q3/2021 was a record of 87.2 kt of copper, and achieved further quarterly milestones, including records in tonnes milled. Along with its Q3/2021 results, First Quantum provided additional details on its construction and commissioning plans to expand Cobre Panama to achieve a throughput rate of 100 million tonnes per annum by the end of 2023. First Quantum reported that Law 9 discussions with the Government of Panama continue to be transparent and constructive towards a mutually beneficial agreement and that the environmental and labour aspects of the discussions have been concluded.
  • Guadalupe-Palmarejo (50% gold stream) – GEOs sold from Guadalupe-Palmarejo were higher than in the same quarter in 2020 due to higher mill throughput and recoveries, reflecting ongoing blending optimization and business improvement initiatives. In September 2021 , Coeur reported positive results from its infill and expansion drilling campaign at the Independencia and Guadalupe deposits that demonstrated near-mine growth potential.
  • Cascabel (1% royalty) – SolGold announced a maiden mineral resource at its Tandayama-America deposit, part of the Cascabel project, approximately 3 km north of the Alpala deposit, and covered by the Franco-Nevada royalty. The maiden resource comprises 233.0 million tonnes at 0.33% copper equivalent containing 0.53 million tonnes of copper and 1.20 million ounces of gold in the Indicated category, plus 197.0 million tonnes at 0.39% copper equivalent containing 0.52 million tonnes of copper and 1.24 million ounces of gold in the Inferred category.

U.S.:

  • Stillwater (5% royalty) – GEOs from Stillwater increased from prior year, reflecting higher platinum and palladium prices.
  • Goldstrike (2-6% royalties ) – Production was impacted by planned maintenance shutdowns as well as a mechanical failure at the Goldstrike roaster. Repairs have been completed in Q3/2021 and production is anticipated to normalize in Q4/2021.
  • South Arturo (4-9% royalty) – In October 2021 , Nevada Gold Mines acquired from i-80 Gold the 40% interest in the South Arturo JV that it did not already own. The transaction provides Nevada Gold Mines 100% of the longer term upside at the South Arturo pit and the El Nino underground, as well as flexibility to pursue other potential operational synergies at Goldstrike.
  • Mesquite (0.5-2% royalty) – In September 2021 , Equinox Gold announced an updated mineral reserve and resource estimate for Mesquite. Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources, exclusive of Mineral Reserves, increased by 65% to 1,384,000 ounces of contained gold.
  • Rosemont (1.5% royalty) – Hudbay Minerals has had continued success at its Copper World Project, expects an initial resource estimate before the end of the year, and is planning a preliminary economic assessment in the first half of 2022.

Canada :

  • Sudbury (50% gold and PGM stream) – Production at McCreedy West was lower than in Q3/2020, as expected in the updated life of mine plan. In February 2021 , KGHM approved an updated life of mine plan which extends mining operations at the McCreedy West mine for another 5 years but at a lower production rate than in 2020.
  • Detour Lake (2% royalty) Kirkland Lake Gold announced a new mineral resource estimate, reporting an increase of 216% in Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources to 14.7 million ounces of gold, exclusive of Mineral Reserves. Mineral reserves were 15.8 million ounces of gold as at December 31, 2020 . Kirkland Lake Gold and Agnico Eagle have entered into an agreement to combine in a merger of equals.
  • Hemlo (3% royalty & 50% NPI) – Revenue from Hemlo was significantly lower than in Q3/2020 reflecting a decrease in production from grounds where Franco-Nevada has royalty interests and higher operating costs which affected royalties under the NPI.
  • Kirkland Lake (1.5-5.5% royalty & 20% NPI) Kirkland Lake Gold reported that the Macassa #4 Shaft is on track for completion in late 2022. Once completed, production at Macassa is targeted to grow to over 400,000 ounces of gold per year, compared to targeted production of 220,000-255,000 ounces of gold for 2021.
  • LIORC – LIORC declared a cash dividend of C$2.10 per common share, compared to C$0.45 per common share in Q3/2020, as higher iron ore prices have offset lower production at the Carol Lake mine.
  • Canadian Malartic (1.5% royalty) – Agnico Eagle and Yamana reported record quarterly production due to higher grade and recoveries from the ore found deeper in the Malartic pit. The mine will continue its transition from the Malartic pit to the Barnat pit through 2021. The Odyssey underground project, which is expected to extend the life of the complex to at least 2039, is progressing as planned. Infill and step-out drilling at the East Gouldie zone, where Franco-Nevada's royalty claims cover a portion of the deposit, support continuity and scale.
  • Greenstone (Hardrock) ( 3% royalty ) – On October 27, 2021 , 60/40 joint venture partners Equinox Gold and Orion Mine Finance held a ground-breaking ceremony to start construction of the Greenstone mine in Ontario , formerly known as the Hardrock project.
  • Eskay Creek (1% royalty) – In July 2021 , Skeena Resources announced a positive pre-feasibility study, outlining average annual production of 249,000 ounces of gold and 7.2 million ounces of silver over a 10-year mine life, and anticipates further increases to the annual production profile as part of a feasibility study expected in Q1/2022.
  • Ring of Fire (1-3% royalties) – In October 2021 , both Wyloo and BHP increased their offers to acquire Noront, with Noront supporting BHP's latest bid as of October 20, 2021 .
  • Valentine Lake (2% royalty) – In October 2021 , Marathon Gold reported continued positive exploration results from ongoing in-fill drilling of the Berry deposit. Marathon also announced a delay in its environmental permitting process for the project. Construction of the project, which was previously anticipated to commence in early 2022, is expected to be delayed by several months.

Rest of World:

  • Tasiast (2% royalty) – In June 2021 , Kinross announced a temporary suspension of mill operations due to a fire at its Tasiast mine. Kinross expects to re-start the mill in Q4/2021. The Tasiast 24k project remains on schedule to be completed in mid-2023.

Energy: Revenue from the Energy assets increased to $55.1 million in Q3/2021 compared to $22.8 million in Q3/2020. Revenues were positively impacted by higher realized prices across the portfolio relative to the prior period. Revenue in Q3/2021 also reflects the addition of royalty interests in the Haynesville shale play acquired at the end of 2020.

U.S.:

  • Haynesville (various royalty rates) – The newly acquired portfolio of royalties contributed $11.1 million in Q3/2021, of which $1.3 million was attributable to prior periods. The asset is benefiting from current high natural gas prices, as well as strong initial production levels due to high royalty interest wells.
  • SCOOP/STACK ( various royalty rates) – Royalties from the SCOOP/STACK generated $8.4 million in Q3/2021 compared to $3.6 million in the prior year period, due to higher prices and a significant increase in production from our royalties held through the Royalty Acquisition Venture with Continental.
  • Permian Basin (various royalty rates) – Royalties from the Permian contributed $9.0 million in Q3/2021 compared to $4.1 million in Q3/2020. Volumes in Q3/2021 increased significantly compared to Q3/2020 reflecting higher commodity prices and production at a number of new wells.
  • Marcellus (1% royalty) – Revenue from the Marcellus asset, operated by Range Resources, was $10.0 million in Q3/2021 versus $4.8 million in Q3/2020. Production was relatively consistent compared to the prior year period, but revenues benefited from significantly higher NGL and natural gas prices.

Canada :

  • Weyburn (NRI, ORR, WI) – Revenue from the Weyburn Unit was $11.8 million in Q3/2021 compared to $7.2 million in Q3/2020, reflecting slightly lower production offset by the increase in commodity prices and the operating leverage of our NRI.

NON-IFRS MEASURES: Cash Costs, Adjusted EBITDA, Adjusted Net Income and Margin are intended to provide additional information only and do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures are not necessarily indicative of operating profit or cash flow from operations as determined under IFRS. Other companies may calculate these measures differently. For a reconciliation of these measures to various IFRS measures, please see below or the Company's current MD&A disclosure found on the Company's website, on SEDAR and on EDGAR. Comparative information has been recalculated to conform to current presentation.

  1. GEOs include Franco-Nevada's attributable share of production from our Mining assets, after applicable recovery and payability factors, and do not include Energy assets. GEOs are estimated on a gross basis for NSR royalties 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 and other mining 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 mining commodity was produced or sold. For Q3/2021, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,789 /oz gold (Q3/2020 - $1,911 ), $24.36 /oz silver (Q3/2020 - $24.39 ), $1,024 /oz platinum (Q3/2020 - $903 ) and $2,459 /oz palladium (Q3/2020 - $2,170 ), $191 /t Fe 65% CFR China (Q3/2020 - $129 ).  For YTD/2021 prices, the average commodity prices were as follows: $1,801 /oz gold (YTD/2020 - $1,735 ), $25.78 /oz silver (YTD/2020 - $19.22 ), $1,122 /oz platinum (YTD/2020 - $865 ) and $2,551 /oz palladium (YTD/2020 - $2,142 ), and $205 /t Fe 65% CFR China (YTD/2020 - $114 ).
  2. Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted Net Income per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and earnings per share ("EPS"): impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on the sale of royalty, stream and working interests and investments; foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses; unusual non-recurring items; and the impact of income taxes on these items.
  3. Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA per share are non-IFRS financial measures, which exclude the following from net income and EPS: income tax expense/recovery; finance expenses and finance income; depletion and depreciation; non-cash costs of sales; impairment charges related to royalty, stream and working interests and investments; gains/losses on the sale of royalty, stream and working interests and investments; foreign exchange gains/losses and other income/expenses; and unusual non-recurring items.
  4. Margin is a non-IFRS financial measure which is defined by the Company as Adjusted EBITDA divided by revenue.
