Statistics for Q3 2022 may be subject to minor adjustment variances.

The decrease in third quarter production compared to last year was due to the elimination of mine tonnes of ore being transported directly from the open pit to the Heap Reach Facility (“HLF”). In the third quarter of 2021, a total of 1.1 million tonnes of mined ore were delivered directly from the open pit to his HLF. The Company has decided not to conduct mining during 2022. This is due to higher unit costs and lower gold recovery rates. Waste tonnage mined in Q3 2022 was lower than in the same period in 2021 due to mine sequencing, longer waste haulage and regular part replacements for key mine production equipment .

Suspension due to land conveyor failure

On September 29, a splice failure occurred in the main belt, which has been in operation since the start of operations in 2019, on a 1.5km land conveyor that connects and transports ore from the crushing plant to the HLF. Rather than repairing the belt, it was decided that replacing the belt was the best option. A new belt is on site and additional resources have been mobilized on site to support belt workers. Depending on the length of the belt and the number of sections to be spliced, the crushing, conveying and stacking operation can be expected to take 2-3 weeks. During this temporary outage, proper maintenance of the fracturing circuit will be performed. Mining and ADR plant operations are unaffected and will continue to function as normal.

Revised 2022 Guidance

The company had previously expected full-year 2022 production to approach the lower end of its guidance range of 165,000 oz. Barring a belt conveyor failure, the mine was on track to meet guidance. Due to the estimated length of time required to replace onshore conveyor belts, the Company does not expect to meet production or cost guidance. As a result, the 2022 production and cost guidance has been withdrawn. Updated guidance will be addressed once Eagle operations are fully resumed.
