Royal Gold Provides Update on Peñasquito

Royal Gold, Inc. (NASDAQ: RGLD) (together with its subsidiaries, “Royal Gold” or the “Company,” “we” or “our”) announced today that Newmont Corporation (“Newmont”) issued a press release announcing that it has reached a preliminary agreement with the National Union of Mine, Metal and Allied Workers of the Mexican Republic (the “Union”) aiming to end the strike initiated by the Union on June 7, 2023, at Minera Peñasquito in the Mexican State of Zacatecas.

According to Newmont, the preliminary agreement was ratified by the General Assembly of the Union on October 5, 2023, and this preliminary agreement is intended to be formalized into a definitive agreement, which the parties will have to agree, approve, sign, and file with the Federal Labor Tribunal for Collective Affairs in Mexico City for final approval.

Further according to Newmont, this process is expected to conclude in the coming days, which would bring the strike to an end and enable Newmont to start the execution of the return to work plan to ensure a safe restart of operations.
