SSR Mining Announces Sale of EMX Units

SSR Mining Inc. (NASDAQ/TSX: SSRM, ASX: SSR) (“SSR Mining” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Scotiabank under which Scotiabank will purchase by way of a block trade 6,161,524 units (the “Units”) at a price of C$1.93 per Unit for gross proceeds to SSR Mining of C$11,891,741 (approximately US$8.9 million) (the “Sale”). Each Unit consists of one freely-tradeable common share of EMX Royalty Corp. (NYSE American: EMX; TSX Venture: EMX; Frankfurt: 6E9) (“EMX”) owned by SSR Mining (each, a "Common Share") and one right (each, an "Option") to purchase an additional common share of EMX owned by SSR Mining (each, an "Option Share" and together with the Common Shares, the “Shares”) at a price of C$2.27 per share expiring on December 31, 2024. In the event all of the Options are exercised, the total gross proceeds to SSR Mining would be C$25,878,401 (approximately US$19.4 million) at a blended price of C$2.10 per share.

Immediately prior to the Sale, SSR Mining owned 12,323,048 common shares of EMX representing approximately 11.0% of the issued and outstanding common shares of EMX. As a result of the Sale and prior to any exercise of the Options, SSR Mining’s ownership in EMX has decreased to 6,161,524 common shares, representing approximately 5.5% of the issued and outstanding common shares of EMX. If all of the Options are exercised, SSR Mining will own no common shares of EMX. The Sale is expected to close on December 22, 2023, subject to customary closing conditions. Net proceeds of the Sale will be paid directly to SSR Mining. EMX will not receive any proceeds from the Sale.

The proceeds of the Sale will be used towards SSR Mining’s organic growth initiatives and ongoing capital returns, reflecting the Company’s successful strategy of reinvesting proceeds from non-core asset sales into higher-return opportunities within the Company’s portfolio. Since the start of 2021, SSR Mining has realized in excess of US$300 million in aggregate consideration for non-core asset sales.

SSR Mining disposed of the Common Shares for the purpose of monetizing its equity position in EMX and may or may not purchase or sell securities of EMX in the future on the open market or in private transactions, depending on market conditions, general economic and industry conditions, EMX’s business and financial condition and/or other relevant factors.

This press release is issued pursuant to National Instrument 62-104 and National Instrument 62-103. An early warning report regarding the disposition of the Common Shares by SSR Mining will be electronically filed with the Securities Commission in each jurisdiction where EMX is reporting, a copy of which will be available under EMX’s profile on SEDAR at

The Units under the Sale have not been, and will not be, registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or the securities laws of any state of the United States and may not be offered, sold or delivered, directly or indirectly, in the United States (as such term is defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act) or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons (as defined in the Securities Act), except pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable state securities laws. This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or solicitation of an offer to buy any of the Units in any jurisdiction in which the offering or sale is not permitted.
