The Company's subsidiary LLC «Tardan Gold» (the “Subsidiary”) has today received a request from the Russian State Service for Supervision of Natural Resource Usage (Rosprirodnadzor, “RPN”) to make an additional payment for waste disposal in the amount of RUB 80,104,953 (equal to approximately USD 1,100,936) within 10 days. The request relates to placement of waste rock mass from the Pravoberezhny deposit on stock piles located at the mine in 2019 and 2020. Under the Russian regulations, waste rock is classified as “waste”, which entails the requirement to obtain a quota from RPN for its stock pile storage. Failure to obtain a quota results in the application of a multiplying coefficient, leading to a higher than normal waste disposal payment.

The Subsidiary has submitted to RPN the documentation required to obtain the quota for future periods. However, the Subsidiary anticipates that a waste disposal payment for 2021, which will become due in April 2022, will also be calculated with the multiplying coefficient, for the same reason. This would result in an additional payment for 2021 of approximately 80 MRUB. The Subsidiary will discuss with RPN a payment schedule to pay the additional amount in installments over an extended period. The Subsidiary has taken organizational measures to prevent such shortcomings in the future. The Board notes that, despite technical classification of waste rock as “waste”, the issue is purely documentary and has no impact on the environment.
