Evaluation Stage Property Footnotes

  1. Royal Gold considers and categorizes an exploration stage property to be an “evaluation stage” property if mineralized material has been identified on the property but reserves have yet to be identified. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize the term “mineralized material.” Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineralized material identified on these properties will ever be converted into reserves.
  2. The 1.5% to 2.5% NSR sliding-scale royalty applies to cumulative production above 300,000 ounces at both the Burnakura and Meekatharra-Reedys properties. Once 300,000 ounces have been produced, the royalty begins paying at a per year rate of 1.5% for the next 75,000 ounces per year produced and at a rate of 2.5% on production above 75,000 ounces per year. Cumulative production is estimated at 271,000 ounces as of June 30, 2013.
  3. Royalty applies on production above 10,000 ounces.
  4. Royalty is capped at 500,000 ounces.
  5. Royalty rate is 4.0% for grades at 1.5 g/t or less and 2.5% at grades above 1.5 g/t.
  6. Royalty applies to production above 40,000 ounces and is capped at $1 million. 
  7. Royalty rate is 1.0% on Exploration claims and 2.0% on Gold claims. The 2.0% royalty on Gold claims has a 50% buy back for $1 million.
  8. Royalty applies to production above 675,000 ounces.    
  9.  Gold royalty rate is based on the price of silver per ounce. NSR sliding scale schedule (price of silver per ounce - royalty rate): Below $5.00 - 0.0%; $5.00 to $7.00 - 3.778%; above $7.50 - 9.445%.
  10. The 0.75% NSR royalty applies to gold and silver and the 1.0% NSR royalty applies to platinum group elements, copper and nickel. The 0.5% NSR royalty applies to gold, silver, platinum group elements, copper and nickel. The 1.25% NSR royalty applies to gold and silver and the 1.5% NSR royalty applies to platinum group elements, copper and nickel. These royalties become payable on commercial production once capital repayment has been made at the project.
  11. A $325,000 payment is due upon production of the first 100,000 ounces. Once production reaches 200,000 ounces, the royalty begins paying at the following rate schedule (price of gold per ounce – royalty rate): $0.00 to $425 – 1.0%; $425 and above – 2.0%.    
  12. Royalty is payable on per pound of uranium produced above eight million pounds.
  13. Royalty rate is 1.0% for each ton of ore having a value of less than $115 per ton; 2.0% for each ton of ore having a value between $115 and $135 per ton; and 3.0% for each ton of ore having a value greater than $135 per ton.
