- Strong projected revenues for Gold Royalty’s first full fiscal year of business of approximately $5 million with robust and peer-leading multi-year growth in revenues expected as the underground expansion of Canadian Malartic ramps up and the Côté and Beaufor gold mines begin production.
- Inaugural quarterly dividend paid during the second quarter, yielding over 1% at current share prices.
- Available liquidity of $25.1 million, positioning the Company well for further growth.

Canadian Malartic Partnership (Agnico Eagle & Yamana JV) – Odyssey Underground Project (3.0% NSR) – Odyssey Project Advancing on Schedule
On April 27, 2022 Yamana Gold announced its financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2022 including an update on development advancements at the Odyssey Project. Following significant advancement of the project in 2021, the Odyssey team is focusing on two key milestones:
- Initiation of shaft sinking by the fourth quarter of 2022
- First gold production from Odyssey South in the first quarter of 2023
Yamana stated that “with a significant production platform, material cash flow generation and a prominent position within Quebec’s Abitibi District, Canadian Malartic will remain one of the Company’s cornerstone assets and one of the more prolific and generational mines in the world, particularly as the Odyssey mine is developed and comes into production. [Yamana] is taking a disciplined approach to the development of Odyssey with a conservative outlook for initial throughput and production. While the Odyssey mine is expected to initially process 20,000 tonnes per day and produce 500,000 to 600,000 ounces per year, based on the current mine plan, the Company recognizes that there is a large inventory of ounces that is not currently in the mine plan. Odyssey ores will be processed through a plant with an original design capacity of over 55,000 tonnes per day, processing closer to 60,000 tonnes per day, which far exceeds the initial expected throughput of Odyssey. The plant was designed for the larger open pit operations that will end later this decade, and while the Company will scale the plant to the level required for the underground operations, that plant capacity will always be there. The Company’s approach at its other mines has been to conduct extensive exploration which provides flexibility to maximize and increase throughput, and a similar approach will be taken with Odyssey, where delineation of extensions of underground mineralized zones and new zones of mineralization is already occurring… The Company firmly believes that in its 10-year outlook period, these efforts will lead to more mining areas that will allow the Company to take advantage of available plant capacity, resulting in ore processing that will exceed 20,000 tonnes per day, and sustainable production will then significantly exceed the initial production plan of 500,000 to 600,000 ounces per year.”

Nevada Gold Mines (Barrick & Newmont JV) – REN Project (1.5% NSR & 3.5% NPI) – Maiden Resource Expected to Grow in 2022
On May 4, 2022, Barrick Gold announced its results for the first quarter of 2022, which included a presentation by President and CEO, Mark Bristow who highlighted that REN, the northern underground extension of the Goldstrike Mine, was a project that is expected to grow in 2022, stating “Ren is another expanding opportunity. Last year we declared a maiden inferred resource of 1.2Moz and recent results have not only confirmed the model but have continued to expand the JB Zone resource to the south. Mineralization remains open at both JB and Corona Corridors. We have initiated various mining studies on the geotechnical, ventilation, dewatering parameters to optimally design this part of the [Goldstrike] mine.”
Barrick had previously noted they are targeting to bring REN into the Goldstrike mine plan in the short term. The 1.2Moz maiden inferred resource (5.2Mt at 7.3g/t Au) is expected grow further based on recent exploration results including the following highlights:
- MRC-21016: 36.6 m at 13.95g/t
