The Solvik Gold royalty project is located approximately 16 km south from the past producing Harnäs gold mine in southwestern Sweden. Gold mineralization at Solvik occurs in swarms of quartz veins and breccias developed along deformation zones and in quartz-sericite altered host rocks. Deformation zones mapped and documented by Agnico’s work at Solvik total over 55 km in cumulative strike length, which represents considerable upside exploration potential.

A total of 43 core holes have been drilled to date across multiple target areas within the project for a total of 8,364 m. Several holes intersected gold mineralization, including intercepts of 2.50 g/t Au over 19.4 meters starting at 176 meters depth and 2.71 g/t Au over 8.5 meters starting at 47.3 meters (approximate true widths) (Ibid2). Additional drilling will be needed to define mineral resources in the target areas, but multiple drill defined zones of mineralization have been documented thus far. There was little to no modern exploration conducted in the area prior to Agnico’s exploration work in 2011 and the project area remains underexplored.

Note: EMX has not performed sufficient work to verify the Projects’ historical drill results and historical resource estimates, but considers this information as reliable and relevant based upon independent field assessment, including inspection and resampling of historical drill core.

*Nearby mines and deposits provide context for the project, but do not necessarily indicate similar size, styles or grade of mineralization within the project.
