Key Highlights

  • Solid fourth quarter production growth led to full-year production within guidance ranges – Gold and silver production increased 5% and 4% quarter-over-quarter, respectively, to 87,727 ounces and 2.5 million ounces. Full-year gold and silver production totaled 330,346 ounces and 9.8 million ounces, respectively, within the Company’s consolidated production guidance ranges
  • Rochester delivered strong quarterly performance – Fourth quarter production at Rochester totaled 973,000 ounces and 11,589 ounces of silver and gold, respectively, representing quarter-over-quarter increases of 31% and 32%. Costs applicable to sales2 decreased 5% for silver and 12% for gold quarter-over-quarter
  • POA 11 expansion nearing scheduled mid-year construction completion and remains on-track – Construction at Rochester is scheduled to be completed mid-year 2023. At the end of 2022, the project was 74% complete. The new Stage VI leach pad is now operational, with first ore placed on February 1, 2023. As of December 31, 2022, approximately $605 million of the estimated capital had been committed, of which $494 million of the estimated capital cost had been incurred. Total expected project capital remains unchanged at $650 - $670 million
  • Exploration investment drives approximately 12% and 3% year-over-year increases in gold and silver reserves, respectively – Gold reserves at Kensington grew roughly 56% year-over-year, adding approximately a year and a half to its mine life. Successful exploration at Silvertip contributed to year-over-year increases in measured and indicated resources of 73%, 69% and 81% in silver, zinc and lead, respectively, excluding reclassified ounces. Over the last five years, the Company has invested approximately $245 million in exploration, leading to increases of approximately 21% and 49% in Company-wide gold and silver reserves, respectively over the five-year period
  • Liquidity further bolstered to support remaining elevated levels of growth investments – The sale of the Crown Sterling holdings was completed on November 4, 2022 for upfront cash consideration of $150 million. On January 17, 2023, Coeur announced the sale of its remaining shares of Victoria Gold Corporation (“Victoria Gold”) for net cash proceeds of approximately $40 million. Coeur ended the quarter with total liquidity of approximately $342 million, including $62 million of cash and $280 million of available capacity under its $390 million revolving credit facility (“RCF”)3 and is further supported by robust hedges covering approximately 52% and 29% of 2023 estimated gold and silver production, respectively. As adjusted to reflect the receipt of proceeds from Victoria Gold, Coeur’s total liquidity stood at $382 million at December 31, 2022
  • 2023 guidance ranges consistent with 2022 investor day outlook – The Company expects 2023 gold and silver production of 320,000 - 370,000 ounces and 10.0 - 12.0 million ounces, respectively, driven by strong expected second half silver and gold production increases consistent with the planned ramp-up at Rochester following completion of the POA 11 expansion project and by higher expected gold production from the Wharf gold operation

“A stronger fourth quarter capped off an important year for Coeur in 2022 as we positioned the Company to deliver on a pivotal 2023 composed of several important catalysts, including the mid-year construction completion of the POA 11 expansion project at Rochester,” said Mitchell J. Krebs, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“2022 represented a year of unprecedented global volatility and intensive capital investment by the Company. Decades high inflation, strength in the U.S. dollar and supply chain disruptions made it a challenging year to deliver on many of Coeur’s key priorities. Despite the unique challenges, I am proud that our team achieved our full-year production guidance for the third consecutive year, delivered full-year capital expenditures in-line with our guidance and came in below our full-year G&A guidance range. Even with strong fourth quarter production increases, our costs applicable to sales declined, which is a testament to our team’s ongoing aggressive cost management efforts and effective business improvement initiatives. In addition, I am particularly proud of our team’s safety performance last year, which resulted in all-time Company low incident rates and among the lowest in the industry.

“The POA 11 expansion project made tremendous progress during the fourth quarter, while the Rochester operation ended 2022 with one of its strongest quarters in recent years. Rochester’s fourth quarter reflected higher grades placed in the prior quarter as well as the application of many of the important lessons we have generated over the past two years in preparation for the transition to the newly expanded infrastructure later this year.

“2022 also marked another successful year for reserve replacement, which reflects our ongoing commitment to investing in near-mine exploration. Over the past five years, the Company has invested nearly $245 million in exploration to increase our gold and silver reserves by 21% and 49%, respectively, while boosting measured and indicated resources by 77% for gold and 53% for silver. In particular, early success from Kensington’s multi-year development and drilling program led to a 56% increase in reserves and the addition of one and a half years of mine life. At Silvertip, silver, zinc and lead measured and indicated resources materially increased year-over-year by approximately 73%, 69% and 81%, respectively, excluding reclassified ounces. We expect Silvertip’s resource to continue to expand and support a future potential source of meaningful growth for the Company.”

Financial Results

Fourth quarter 2022 revenue totaled $210 million compared to $183 million in the prior period and $208 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. The Company produced 87,727 and 2.5 million ounces of gold and silver, respectively, during the quarter. Metal sales for the quarter totaled 88,189 ounces of gold and 2.5 million ounces of silver. Average realized gold and silver prices for the quarter were $1,787 and $21.14 per ounce, respectively, compared to $1,702 and $19.09 per ounce in the prior period, a respective 5% and 11% increase quarter-over-quarter, and $1,652 and $23.17 per ounce in the fourth quarter of 2021, respectively, an 8% increase in gold and 9% decrease in silver.

Coeur generated $786 million in revenue during 2022, compared to $833 million in 2021. Full-year gold and silver production totaled 330,346 and 9.8 million ounces, respectively, compared to 348,529 ounces of gold and 10.1 million ounces of silver in 2021. Metal sales in 2022 included 329,968 and 9.8 million ounces of gold and silver, respectively. Average realized gold and silver prices for the year were $1,736 and $21.77 per ounce, respectively, compared to $1,652 and $25.06 per ounce in 2021.

Gold and silver sales represented 75% and 25% of quarterly revenue, respectively. For the full year, gold and silver sales accounted for 73% and 27% of revenue. The Company’s U.S. operations accounted for approximately 67% and 61% of fourth quarter and full-year revenue, respectively.

Costs applicable to sales2 decreased 2% quarter-over-quarter to $159 million while increasing 19% year-over-year to $607 million. Higher costs during the year were due primarily to increased consumable costs driven by inflation. General and administrative expenses remained consistent quarter-over-quarter at $10 million.

Coeur invested approximately $9 million ($8 million expensed and $2 million capitalized) in exploration during the quarter, compared to roughly $12 million ($8 million expensed and $4 million capitalized) in the prior period. For the full year, the Company invested approximately $48 million ($27 million expensed and $22 million capitalized), compared to roughly $71 million ($51 million expensed and $20 million capitalized), reflecting lower planned investment across the portfolio following the Company’s highest-ever exploration investment in 2021. See the “Operations” and “Exploration” sections for additional detail on the Company’s exploration activities.

The Company recorded income tax benefit of approximately $0.4 million and expense of approximately $15 million during the fourth quarter and for the full year, respectively. Cash income and mining taxes paid during the period totaled approximately $9 million, bringing the full-year total to $42 million. Cash taxes paid in 2022 primarily reflect income and mining tax payments in Mexico. Additionally, Coeur expects to pay approximately $14 - $18 million in cash taxes during the first quarter of 2023 primarily as a result of its annual tax filings in Mexico.

Quarterly operating cash flow totaled $29 million compared to $(19) million in the prior period, mainly driven by higher metal sales and favorable changes in working capital. Changes in working capital during the quarter were $9 million, compared to $(18) million in the prior period, reflecting the timing of semi-annual interest payments on the Company’s 2029 5.125% Senior Notes. For the full year, operating cash flow decreased 77% to $26 million driven by lower profitability at each site.

Capital expenditures increased 17% quarter-over-quarter to $113 million, bringing the full-year total to $352 million and within Coeur’s 2022 guidance range of $330 - $395 million. Expenditures related to the expansion project at Rochester totaled $89 million and $229 million during the fourth quarter and full-year, respectively, compared to $68 million in the third quarter and $148 million in 2021. Sustaining and development capital expenditures accounted for approximately 18% and 82%, respectively, of Coeur’s total capital investment during the quarter.

Capital Project Update

Rochester Expansion

As of December 31, 2022, the Company had committed approximately $605 million of capital since inception of the project and approximately $494 million of the estimated project cost had been incurred. Total estimated project capital remains between $650 - $670 million. At the end of 2022, the project was 74% complete.

Coeur achieved several key milestones at the Rochester expansion during the quarter.

Notably, the Company (i) completed concrete foundations for the pre-screen structure, while advancing the concrete work in the primary crusher area, (ii) continued structural, mechanical, piping, electrical and instrumentation construction work throughout the project, and (iii) achieved mechanical completion of the Merrill-Crowe electrical substation construction.

Progress on the Merrill-Crowe plant remained on schedule during the quarter, including (i) completion of mechanical equipment setting, (ii) completion of process plant building cladding, (iii) commencement of electrical cable installation and continuation of piping installation, and (iv) successful completion of control systems programming and factory testing.

Further work on the crusher corridor also advanced, including (i) completion of the first lift of the primary crusher vertical concrete, (ii) continuation of steel erection and equipment installation above the secondary cone crushers in the secondary crusher area, (iii) continuation of steel erection and equipment installation above the tertiary HPGR crushers in the tertiary crusher area, and (iv) commencement of control systems programming.

During the quarter, Coeur made solid progress on the final major high-voltage electrical distribution and substation construction, while also advancing pre-commissioning planning and system development. Mechanical completion remains on target for mid-2023 with ramp-up and commissioning expected to take place during the second half of the year.

Year-End

Balance Sheet and Liquidity Update

Coeur ended the quarter with total liquidity of approximately $342 million, including $62 million of cash and $280 million of available capacity under its $390 million RCF3 subject to certain financial covenants. Additionally, the Company had $44 million of marketable securities at the end of the fourth quarter.

On January 17, 2023, Coeur announced the sale of the remaining 6 million shares of its Victoria Gold investment for net proceeds of approximately $40 million, which is not included as part of the Company’s fourth quarter results. As adjusted to reflect the receipt of proceeds from this transaction, Coeur’s total liquidity stood at $382 million at December 31, 2022.

Hedging Update

During the fourth quarter, the Company added to its hedge position by executing additional hedges on 18,000 ounces of its expected 2023 gold production. Additionally, early in the first quarter, Coeur executed additional hedges on 30,000 ounces of its expected 2023 gold production. The Company continues to have meaningful gold price protection in place for 2023. In 2022, Coeur realized a net hedge gain of roughly $24 million.

Coeur established a new silver hedge position through the execution of hedges on 3.2 million ounces of its expected 2023 silver production early in the first quarter of 2023. The Company’s hedging strategy continues to focus on mitigating risk during this time of capital intensity. An overview of the hedges in place is outlined below.

Mark-to-Market Adjustments

The Company values its strategic investments in equity securities at the end of each reporting period. The estimated fair values of Coeur’s equity investments in Victoria Gold, Avino Silver & Gold Mines Ltd. and Integra Resources Corp. totaled $44 million at December 31, 2022, consisting of $32 million, $10 million and $2 million, respectively (and does not reflect the sale of Victoria Gold stock that occurred after quarter-end), compared to $45 million at September 30, 2022, consisting of $36 million, $7 million and $2 million, respectively.

Rochester LCM Adjustment

Coeur reports the carrying value of metal and leach pad inventory at the lower of cost or net realizable value, with cost being determined using a weighted average cost method. Decreases in the market price of gold and silver can affect the value of metal inventory, stockpiles and leach pads, and it may be necessary to record a write-down to the net realizable value, as well as impact carrying value of long-lived assets. At the end of the fourth quarter, the cost of ore on leach pads at Rochester exceeded its net realizable value which resulted in a lower of cost or market (“LCM”) adjustment of $9 million (approximately $8 million in costs applicable to sales2 and $1 million of amortization).

  • Fourth quarter gold and silver production totaled 25,935 and 1.5 million ounces, respectively, compared to 24,807 and 1.6 million ounces in the prior period and 28,748 and 1.8 million ounces in the fourth quarter of 2021. For the full year, gold and silver production totaled 106,782 and 6.7 million ounces, respectively, and were within 2022 guidance ranges of 106,000 - 108,000 ounces of gold and 6.6 - 7.0 million ounces of silver
  • Production during the quarter benefited from increased mill throughput as well as higher average gold grade, offset by lower average silver grade

Financial

  • Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 for gold and silver on a co-product basis increased 8% and 12% to $1,027 and $14.23 per ounce, respectively, driven by increased costs related to higher throughput to offset lower silver grades during the quarter as well as unfavorable changes in foreign exchange rates on consumables and labor costs
  • For the full year, adjusted CAS1 for gold and silver totaled $883 and $13.05 per ounce, respectively, compared to $663 and $11.95 per ounce in the prior period. Both cost metrics finished the year within their 2022 guidance ranges of $825 - $925 and $12.75 - $13.75 per ounce of gold and silver, respectively
  • Capital expenditures decreased 25% quarter-over-quarter to $8 million, reflecting decreased infill drilling and timing of projects at year-end
  • Full-year capital expenditures increased 17% to $43 million, primarily as a result of increased sustaining capital to support future production
  • Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $11 million and $46 million, respectively, compared to $2 million and $66 million in the prior periods. Fourth quarter free cash flow benefited from higher metal sales while lower full-year free cash flow was driven by higher costs applicable to sales

Exploration

  • Exploration investment for the fourth quarter decreased 36% to approximately $2 million (substantially all expensed), while full-year exploration investment decreased 22% year-over-year to roughly $11 million ($7 million expensed and $5 million)
  • The number of active rigs was reduced from three at the beginning of the period to one by the end of the quarter. Expansion drilling during the quarter continued to focus on the northwest extension of the Hidalgo zone (located at the northwest end of the Independencia deposit). In this portion of the system, three mineralized vein arrays have been identified — Hidalgo, Libertad and San Juan
  • Coeur expects one drill rig to be active at Palmarejo in the first quarter focused on expansion drilling at the Hidalgo zone

Other

  • Approximately 36% and 38% of Palmarejo’s gold sales in the fourth quarter and full-year, respectively, were sold under its gold stream agreement at a price of $800 per ounce, totaling 9,050 ounces in the fourth quarter and 41,000 ounces for the full year. The Company anticipates approximately 30% - 40% of Palmarejo’s gold sales for 2023 will be sold under the stream agreement

Guidance

  • Full-year 2023 production is expected to be 100,000 - 112,500 ounces of gold and 6.5 - 7.5 million ounces of silver. Production in 2023 is expected to be relatively flat compared to 2022 production
  • CAS1 in 2023 are expected to be $900 - $1,050 per gold ounce and $14.25 - $15.25 per silver ounce
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be $35 - $47 million consisting primarily of underground development as well as development of the high compression thickener and open pit backfill project

Operational

  • Silver and gold production increased 31% and 32% in the fourth quarter, respectively, to 973,000 and 11,589 ounces compared to 744,880 and 8,761 ounces in the prior period and 757,000 and 6,864 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2021. For the full year, silver production totaled 3.1 million and was at the high end of the 2022 guidance range of 2.9 - 3.1 million ounces, while gold production totaled 34,735 ounces which exceeded the 2022 guidance range of 32,000 - 34,000 ounces
  • Increased production during the quarter was primarily driven by timing of higher-grade material placed on the leach pad during the prior period as a result of planned mine sequencing

Financial

  • Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 figures in the table above and highlighted below exclude the impact of an LCM adjustment totaling approximately $8 million related to the net realizable value of metal and leach pad inventory due to higher operating costs exceeding the lower market value of ounces under leach at Rochester
  • Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 for silver and gold on a co-product basis totaled $17.60 and $1,596 per ounce, respectively, with significant reductions compared to the prior period largely driven by increased metal sales
  • Full-year adjusted CAS1 for silver and gold on a co-product basis totaled $25.74 and $2,268 per ounce, respectively, compared to $23.57 and $1,691 per ounce in the prior period, largely driven by inflation pressures on consumable costs
  • Capital expenditures increased 25% quarter-over-quarter to $92 million, bringing the full year total to $246 million compared to $167 million in the prior year, reflecting increased spending related to the POA 11 expansion project
  • Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $(98) million and $(294) million, respectively, compared to $(88) million and $(193) million in the prior periods

Exploration

  • Quarterly exploration investment decreased 15% quarter-over-quarter to approximately $1 million ($0.6 million expensed and $0.5 million capitalized), while full-year exploration investment decreased 21% year-over-year to roughly $7 million ($5 million expensed and $3 million capitalized)
  • Condemnation drilling at the west waste dump was undertaken during the quarter with results pending
  • In the first quarter, Coeur plans to focus on data organization and geologic logging, interpretation and modeling ahead of the mid-year resource calculations
  • Additionally, region target assessment and ranking will be undertaken as part of a wider geological prospectivity review which will later feed into medium- and long-term work-program planning

Guidance

  • Full-year 2023 production is expected to increase to 3.5 - 4.5 million ounces of silver and 35,000 - 50,000 ounces of gold compared to 2022 production levels. Production in 2023 is expected to be second half weighted with the construction completion of POA 11 occurring mid-year
  • With the completion of the POA 11 expansion construction expected in mid-2023, the Company has elected to defer providing cost guidance at Rochester until mid-year, following the transitional period anticipated in the first half of 2023
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be $228 - $252 million primarily due to investment in POA 11 weighted towards the first half of 2023

  • Gold production increased in the fourth quarter to 30,335 ounces compared to 28,214 ounces in the prior period and 33,516 ounces in the fourth quarter of 2021. For the full year, gold production totaled 109,061 ounces and was just below 2022 guidance of 110,000 - 111,000 ounces
  • Higher production during the fourth quarter was driven by an increase in mill throughput - a record high quarter - due to efficiencies at the mill, as well as improved average gold recoveries compared to the prior period

Financial

  • Fourth quarter adjusted CAS1 totaled $1,265 per ounce compared to $1,455 per ounce in the prior period, reflecting increased metal sales. Full-year adjusted CAS1 totaled $1,420 per ounce compared to $1,082 per ounce in 2021, largely driven by higher consumable costs and employee-related expenses
  • Capital expenditures increased slightly quarter-over-quarter to $8 million due to increased capital development as well as infill drilling. For the full year, capital expenditures increased 15% to $32 million primarily due to increased capital development
  • Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $13 million and $11 million, respectively, compared to $(7) million and $43 million in the prior periods

Exploration

  • Exploration investment in the quarter totaled approximately $3 million ($2 million expensed and $1 million capitalized), compared to $3 million ($3 million expensed and $1 million capitalized) in the prior period. For the full year, exploration investment increased 7% to roughly $11 million ($7 million expensed and $5 million capitalized)
  • During the quarter, four underground drill rigs were focused on expansion and infill drilling at Elmira, Kensington and Johnson
  • At Kensington, the Company continues to trace Zone 30A, Zone 30B and Zone 12 structures to the south and down dip. Drilling continues to intercept zones of consistent widths and grades with the potential to increase mineral resources and further extend mine life
  • In the first quarter of 2023, up to six underground drill rigs are expected to focus on infill and expansion drilling at multiple zones at Kensington, Johnson and Elmira as part of Kensington’s multi-year enhanced development and drilling program

Guidance

  • Full-year 2023 production is expected to be 100,000 - 112,500 gold ounces. Production in 2023 is expected to be relatively flat compared to 2022
  • CAS1 in 2023 are expected to be $1,500 - $1,700 per gold ounce
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be $50 - $62 million, primarily related to the multi-year development and drilling program

  • Gold production in the fourth quarter decreased 8% quarter-over-quarter to 19,868 ounces. For the full year, gold production totaled 79,768 ounces, within 2022 guidance of 77,000 - 82,000 ounces
  • Lower production during the quarter was primarily due to lower grade material placed on the leach pad during the prior period as a result of planned mine sequencing. Ore tons placed decreased 28% during the quarter due to weather events

Financial

  • Adjusted CAS1 on a by-product basis increased 3% quarter-over-quarter to $1,393 per ounce, largely driven by lower metal sales. Full-year adjusted CAS1 totaled $1,281 per ounce and was within the 2022 guidance range of $1,250 - $1,350 per ounce
  • Capital expenditures remained consistent quarter-over-quarter at $1 million
  • Free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter and full-year totaled $10 million and $30 million, respectively, compared to $6 million and $50 million in the prior periods. Higher free cash flow1 in the fourth quarter was largely driven by higher metal sales, while full-year free cash flow reflected lower metal sales and higher costs compared to 2021. Coeur has now generated cumulative free cash flow from Wharf of more than three times its original investment of approximately $99.5 million in February 2015

Exploration

  • Exploration investment remained flat quarter-over-quarter as the infill program was completed in the first quarter, which focused on resource conversion at the Portland Ridge - Boston claim group (located on the southern edge of the operation) and Flossie (located west of Portland Ridge) areas
  • In 2023, the focus will be on geological modeling and planning for 2024

Guidance

  • Full-year 2023 production is expected to be 85,000 - 95,000 gold ounces. Higher anticipated production in 2023 is primarily related to higher expected gold grade due to mine sequencing
  • CAS1 in 2023 are expected to be $1,200 - $1,350 per gold ounce
  • Capital expenditures are expected to be $1 - $4 million

Exploration

Coeur had up to 16 active rigs across all sites during the fourth quarter, for a total investment of approximately $9 million ($8 million expensed and $2 million capitalized), compared to roughly $12 million ($8 million expensed and $4 million capitalized) in the prior period. The decrease in drilling activity was largely driven by the ramp down of projects for the year.

For the full year, Coeur invested approximately $48 million ($27 million and $22 million capitalized), compared to roughly $71 million ($51 million expensed and $20 million capitalized) in 2021. The decrease in drilling activity was primarily driven by lower planned investment across the portfolio in 2022 versus 2021, which was a record year of exploration investment for the Company.

Exploration investment at the Silvertip silver-zinc-lead exploration project in British Columbia, Canada in the fourth quarter totaled approximately $3 million (substantially all expensed) compared to roughly $3 million ($2 million expensed and $1 million capitalized) in the prior period.

For the full year, Coeur invested approximately $10 million ($5 million expensed and $5 million capitalized) compared to roughly $19 million ($15 million expensed and $3 million capitalized) in 2021 at Silvertip.

Since acquisition, exploration at Silvertip has been consistently successful, with measured and indicated resource tonnage increasing from approximately 2.6 million tons to 7.1 million tons. Multiple new zones have been discovered, providing a clear path to potentially significant resource growth for the foreseeable future. The Company anticipates a slower overall timeline to advance the Silvertip project, with the primary focus on growth of the overall deposit. Consistent with Silvertip’s status as a long-term exploration project, the Company has reclassified its mineral reserves to measured and indicated resources as of year-end 2022.

Up to four core drill rigs were active at Silvertip with two underground rigs focused on infill and expansion holes at the Southern Silver and Discovery zones. At the Southern Silver zone, down dip extensions to the zone were intersected in several holes. Drilling in the Discovery zone added continuity to the manto horizon through targeted drillholes into gaps in the resource shapes. A deep drillhole targeting the source (hub) of the deposit began late in the fourth quarter and is expected to be completed in the first quarter. Additionally, a new zone of mineralization was encountered in the exploration ramp which was expanded upon with underground drillholes. This new zone remains open in all directions and will be a priority drill target in 2023.

Two surface rigs were also active during the quarter, completing both scout and expansion drilling at Tour Ridge and Camp Creek West. Drillhole results at Camp Creek West confined the mineralization to a narrow corridor which allows the team to plan follow-up drilling in the area. Drilling at Tour Ridge was completed during the quarter. Results are pending, but multiple geological indicators or proximity to mineralization were intersected.

The Company expects to invest $10 - $14 million in exploration in 2023 at Silvertip, including $8 - $10 million and $2 - $4 million of expensed and capitalized drilling, respectively.

2023 Guidance

Gold and silver production is expected to increase compared to 2022, driven by the planned construction completion of POA 11 at Rochester mid-year as well as higher expected grades at Wharf due to mine sequencing and resource model enhancements. Overall cost guidance has increased compared to 2022 primarily driven by expected continued inflationary pressures on operating costs.

Additionally, with the completion of the POA 11 expansion construction expected in mid-2023, Coeur has elected to defer providing cost guidance at Rochester until mid-year, following the transitional period anticipated in the first half of 2023. The Company expects to have an LCM adjustment at Rochester of roughly $10 - $15 million each quarter in 2023.

The scientific and technical information concerning our mineral projects in this news release have been reviewed and approved by a “qualified person” under S-K 1300, namely our Director, Technical Services, Christopher Pascoe. For a description of the key assumptions, parameters and methods used to estimate mineral reserves and mineral resources, as well as data verification procedures and a general discussion of the extent to which the estimates may be affected by any known environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant factors, please review the Technical Report Summaries for each of the Company’s material properties which are available at www.sec.gov.

Non-U.S. GAAP Measures

We supplement the reporting of our financial information determined under United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) with certain non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, including EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, adjusted net income (loss), operating cash flow before changes in working capital and adjusted costs applicable to sales per ounce (gold and silver) or pound (zinc or lead). We believe that these adjusted measures provide meaningful information to assist management, investors and analysts in understanding our financial results and assessing our prospects for future performance. We believe these adjusted financial measures are important indicators of our recurring operations because they exclude items that may not be indicative of, or are unrelated to our core operating results, and provide a better baseline for analyzing trends in our underlying businesses. We believe EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA, adjusted EBITDA margin, free cash flow, adjusted net income (loss) and adjusted costs applicable to sales per ounce (gold and silver) and pound (zinc and lead) are important measures in assessing the Company’s overall financial performance. For additional explanation regarding our use of non-U.S. GAAP financial measures, please refer to our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022.
