Company Profile and Business Description for Royal Gold

Royal Gold, Inc., incorporated on January 5, 1981, together with its subsidiaries, is engaged in acquiring and managing precious metal streams, royalties and similar interests. The Company operates through two segments: Acquisition and Management of Stream Interests, and Acquisition and Management of Royalty Interests. Its assets are located in Canada, Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico, the United States, Africa, Australia and Other. The Company's principal producing properties include Carmen de Andacollo (Andacollo) (Region IV, Chile); Mount Milligan (British Columbia, Canada); Pueblo Viejo (Sanchez Ramirez, Dominican Republic); Wassa, and Prestea (Western Region, Ghana). Its royalty interests include Cortez (Nevada, the United States) and Penasquito (Zacatecas, Mexico). Its principal development-stage properties include Pascua-Lama Project (Region III, Chile) and Rainy River (Ontario, Canada).

Andacollo is an open-pit mine and milling operation located in central Chile, Region IV in the Coquimbo Province, and is operated by Compania Minera Teck Carmen de Andacollo (CMCA). The Andacollo mine is located in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, approximately 1.5 miles southwest of the town of Andacollo. As of June 30, 2016, the Company's subsidiary, RGLD Gold AG (RGLD Gold), owned the right to purchase over 52.25% of the payable gold produced from the Mount Milligan copper-gold project in British Columbia, Canada. The Mount Milligan project is an open-pit mine and is located within the Omenica Mining Division in North Central British Columbia, approximately 100 miles northwest of Prince George, over 50 miles north of Fort St. James and approximately 60 miles west of Mackenzie. The Pueblo Viejo mine is located in the province of Sanchez Ramirez, Dominican Republic, approximately 60 miles northwest of Santo Domingo, and is owned by a joint venture. The Wassa open pit mine and oxide ore mill are located near the village of Akyempim in the Wassa East District, in the Western Region of Ghana, approximately 50 miles north of Cape Coast and over 90 miles west of the capital Accra.
