Discussion on Use of Proceeds

Proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Pilar Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland is currently in Mexico to initiate the next phase of exploration. The company will be evaluating surface mineralization with trenching and channel sampling followed by a series of column leach studies on representative sites across the Main Zone. In addition, drilling is planned with between 5,000 to 8,000 meters estimated between now and July of 2022. Drilling will focus on continued step-out drilling along the Main Zone and new 4-Trench Trend, following up on Phase II step-outs highlighted by JES-21-50 which intersected 39.7m at 0.96 g/t Au including 1.5m at 14.6 g/t Au . Exploration drilling will continue to evaluate target areas along the Triple Vein Zone. Surface exploration work will continue with trenching and sampling along the southeastern extension of the Main Zone.

In December, an exploration program of surface mapping and sampling will be conducted at the El Picacho Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. The program aims to advance key target areas towards trenching and ultimately drill targeting.

"We are now on the ground in Mexico with our exploration team and we are very much looking forward to this next phase of exploration.", commented VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland. "I will updating on our progress over the next few weeks as we begin trenching for detailed metallurgical analysis at our Main Zone and exploration of key target areas. At the same time, we look to rapidly move towards our next phase of drilling. Despite recent market volatility the Company's exploration program will go forward as planned and I will be on site at Pilar to oversee the start."

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF SHARHOLDERS ("AGM") – JANUARY 31, 2022

The Company is also pleased to announce the date for its AGM has been set for January 31, 2022. The Company encourages all shareholders to take part as it will be voting on the spin-out of the 100% owned Rogers Creek Property in British Columbia into a new company focused on copper assets, Cascade Copper.

NO MATERIAL INFORMATION TO ANNOUNCE

The Company is not aware of any material non-public information at this time.

Recent market activity is likely due to global uncertainty with the resurgence of a new COVID-19 variant.

About the Pilar Property

Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4-Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 22,700 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:

  • 2021 Phase II RC Drilling Highlights include ( all lengths are drilled thicknesses ):

    • 39.7m @ 0.96 g/t Au, including 1.5m @ 14.6 g/t Au

    • 47.7m @ 0.75 g/t Au including 3m @ 5.6 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag

Franco-Nevada Declares Dividend Increase and Provides Details for Upcoming Release of 2021 Results

Franco-Nevada Corporation is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has raised its quarterly dividend and declared a quarterly dividend of US$0.32 per share payable on March 31, 2022 to shareholders of record on March 17, 2022 (the "Record Date"). This is a 6.7% increase from the previous US$0.30 per share quarterly dividend and marks the 15 th consecutive annual increase for Franco-Nevada shareholders. Canadian investors in Franco-Nevada's IPO in December 2007 are now receiving an effective 10.7% yield on their cost base. The Board of Directors has determined to move its annual dividend reviews earlier in the year than prior practice starting with 2022. The dividend policy will now be reviewed at the beginning of the fiscal year so that any increases to the dividend will be effective for the full fiscal year rather than commencing in Q2 as in prior years. The dividend has been declared in U.S. dollars and the Canadian dollar equivalent will be determined based on the daily average rate posted by the Bank of Canada on the Record Date. Under Canadian tax legislation, Canadian resident individuals who receive "eligible dividends" are entitled to an enhanced gross-up and dividend tax credit on such dividends.

The Company has a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the "DRIP"). Participation in the DRIP is optional. The Company will issue additional common shares through treasury at a 3% discount to the Average Market Price, as defined in the DRIP. However, the Company may, from time to time, in its discretion, change or eliminate the discount applicable to treasury acquisitions or direct that such common shares be purchased in market acquisitions at the prevailing market price, any of which would be publicly announced. The DRIP and enrollment forms are available on the Company's website at www.franco-nevada.com . Canadian and U.S. registered shareholders may also enroll in the DRIP online through the plan agent's self-service web portal at www.investorcentre.com/franco-nevada .
