Royal Road Minerals

Formalization

Royal Road is committed to a new model of exploration and mining for a new world; one which reduces environmental impact, benefits communities and contributes to the development of our host countries. We identify new approaches and trial innovative initiatives to change the mining paradigm.

In most of our mining titles in Colombia there are generally small-scale and family-operated informal gold mines which operate outside of the mining and environmental regulatory frameworks. The Colombian government has established a process by which mining title holders can effectively carve out a portion of their title and provide that area to informal miners so that they may become legal and rightful owners of their mining operations.

Royal Road has established a contractual structure for these formalization initiatives which benefits the Company, the local miners, the community and of course the environment. In exchange for handing over part of its title and assisting the local miners with the formalization process, Royal Road is paid a quarterly royalty equivalent to 3% of the doré extracted from the newly formalized mining operations and has the exclusive right to carry out all exploration activities in and around these operations. If, through the exploration process, the Company discovers a project that meets its size criteria, it may earn back in to 70% of the formalized title area by achieving certain exploration goals.

We have a highly experienced team dedicated to the formalization process, but in order that we do not become distracted from our main aim of discovering very large gold and copper deposits, the Company has executed a Heads of Agreement with a Colombian mining company Latminco S.A.S, which aims to optimize the formalized mining operations by applying modern mining and treatment technologies. The agreement anticipates that Latminco and Royal Road will collaborate and agree with formalized miners to identify opportunities where production may be increased and processing may be centralized to the benefit of all parties.
