The commencement of gold production at IAMGOLD's Côté Gold Mine is a pivotal event for stakeholders in Gold Royalty Corp. With the initiation of a 0.75% net smelter return royalty on the southern portion of the mine, there is a direct influence on Gold Royalty's revenue streams. The projected 100% growth in expected revenue for 2024 is a substantial figure that merits attention from investors. This growth projection is contingent on the mine's ramp-up to commercial production and achievement of a 90% throughput rate by year's end.

It's important to consider the stability and potential longevity of this revenue source. With Côté Gold's anticipated mine life of over 18 years, this operation could provide a long-term cash flow for Gold Royalty. However, investors should be aware of the risks inherent in mining operations, such as fluctuating gold prices, operational challenges and potential environmental regulations that could affect profitability.

The successful first gold pour at Côté Gold underscores the technical proficiency of IAMGOLD and the viability of the mine's infrastructure, particularly the crushing, HPGR and processing circuits. The mention of power consumption aligns with industry focus on energy efficiency and cost management, which are critical factors in the profitability of mining operations. As Côté Gold is poised to become one of Canada's largest operating gold mines, its performance will be closely watched by competitors and could potentially set benchmarks for operational efficiency.

For the mining sector, the steady run-rate and production guidance provided by IAMGOLD are indicators of the company's confidence in the mine's capabilities. The long-term prospects of Côté Gold, coupled with significant opportunities for growth, suggest that the mine could become a key player in the market, influencing not only Gold Royalty's portfolio but also the regional mining landscape in Ontario.

Gold Royalty's association with Côté Gold Mine and the positive outlook for the mine's productivity could attract investor interest in the mining sector, particularly in gold-related assets. The anticipated industry leading growth profile mentioned by Gold Royalty's CEO reflects a strategic positioning that could resonate with market participants looking for growth opportunities within the natural resources sector.

However, it's important for investors to monitor gold market trends and the broader economic environment that could impact the demand and price of gold. The geopolitical climate, inflation rates and currency valuations are all external factors that can significantly influence the performance of gold mining stocks. A diversified portfolio that includes gold mining assets like Gold Royalty Corp. could be seen as a hedge against market volatility, but it is essential to balance such investments with a comprehensive risk assessment.

VANCOUVER, BC, April 1, 2024 /PRNewswire/ - Gold Royalty Corp. ("Gold Royalty" or the "Company") (NYSE American: GROY) is pleased to announce that IAMGOLD Corporation ("IAMGOLD") has completed its first gold pour at the Côté Gold Mine ("Côté Gold" or "Côté"), located in Ontario, Canada. Gold Royalty holds a 0.75% net smelter return ("NSR") royalty over the southern portion of the mine, which is expected to be incorporated into phase I of the mine plan.

David Garofalo, Chairman and CEO of Gold Royalty, commented: "We are thrilled to see IAMGOLD achieve first gold pour at Côté and are excited to see the continued ramp up of the mine through the remainder of the year. For Gold Royalty, this is a significant catalyst as Côté will be a meaningful contributor to our 100% growth in expected revenue in 2024. As one of our cornerstone assets, Côté represents the high-quality, long-life, and reliable operations which build the foundation of our portfolio and underpin our industry leading growth profile which extends towards the end of the decade."

As announced by IAMGOLD on March 31, 2024, commissioning activities at Côté have been progressing well, with performance achieved in the crushing, HPGR and processing circuits within expectations, including power consumption. IAMGOLD stated with first gold pour now achieved, the next step and focus is on the ramp up of the operation to commercial production in the third quarter, and towards the goal of exiting the year at a 90% throughput rate. IAMGOLD's production guidance from Côté this year, on a 100% basis, is unchanged at 220,000 to 290,000 ounces of gold, assuming the remaining milestones are achieved. At steady run-rate, Côté Gold is expected to be one of the largest operating gold mines in Canada with an expected mine life exceeding 18 years and significant opportunities for growth.
