The Directors of Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation (the "Corporation") (TSX: LIF) declared today a quarterly cash dividend of $1.80 per Common Share. The dividend is payable to holders of record at the close of business on December 31, 2020 and is to be paid on January 26, 2021 .

The Corporation has decided to end the practice of designating dividends as either regular or special dividends.  Currently, many third-party investor information services do not include special dividends when calculating the Corporation's dividend yield, despite the fact that special dividends have been declared in 23 of the last 32 quarters and have represented over 48% of the total value of dividends declared over that time.  By removing the special dividend designation, the Corporation believes that its dividend yield will be more accurately reported by these services in the future.

The Corporation normally pays cash dividends from its net income to the maximum extent possible, subject to the maintenance of appropriate levels of working capital. This change will not affect the total amount of quarterly dividends received by shareholders, which will continue to vary depending on the financial results of IOC.  The total aggregate dividends declared in 2020 was $3.05 per Common Share.

The Corporation holds a 15.10% equity interest in IOC directly and through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hollinger-Hanna Limited, and receives a 7% gross overriding royalty and a 10 cent per tonne commission on all iron ore products produced, sold and shipped by IOC.

Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation - Rio Tinto Releases IOC Production and Sales Information and Lowers 2021 Guidance

Today Rio Tinto released its quarterly operational report for the third quarter ending September 30, 2021 which included Iron Ore Company of Canada (IOC) production and sales information. Specifically, Rio Tinto announced that in the third quarter of 2021, IOC had total saleable iron ore production of 3.68 million tonnes, comprised of 2.27 million tonnes of pellets and 1.41 million tonnes of concentrate for sale (CFS). Rio Tinto also announced that IOC had total iron ore sales in the third quarter of 2021 of 4.14 million tonnes, comprised of 2.34 million tonnes of pellets and 1.80 million tonnes of CFS. Comparisons to prior quarters and Rio Tinto's commentary on the changes can be found in Rio Tinto's quarterly operational report which is posted on their website. Please note that the IOC sales tonnages are calculated slightly differently for Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation's (LIORC) royalty.

IOC's total saleable production (CFS plus pellets) for the nine months ending September 30, 2021 was 12.31 million tonnes. As a result of lower than anticipated production year-to-date, Rio Tinto has lowered its 2021 full year guidance for IOC's saleable production tonnage from 17.9 to 20.4 million tonnes to 16.2 to 17.9 million tonnes.
