Our officers, directors and director nominees are as follows: Name ​ ​ Age ​ ​ Position ​ Michael (Mick) James McMullen ​ ​ 50 ​ ​ Chief Executive Officer and Director ​ Marthinus (Jaco) J. Crouse ​ ​ 43 ​ ​ Chief Financial Officer ​ Dan Vujcic ​ ​ 42 ​ ​ Chief Development Officer ​ Patrice E. Merrin ​ ​ 72 ​ ​ Chair nominee ​ Rasmus Kristoffer Gerdeman ​ ​ 45 ​ ​ Director nominee, Audit Chair nominee ​ Neville Joseph Power ​ ​ 62 ​ ​ Director nominee ​ John Rhett Miles Bennett ​ ​ 40 ​ ​ Director ​ Charles D. McConnell ​ ​ 66 ​ ​ Director nominee ​ Michael (Mick) James McMullen (CEO and director) brings more than 28 years of senior leadership experience in the exploration, financing, development, and operations of mining companies globally. Mr. McMullen most recently served as the CEO and President at Detour Gold Corporation (“Detour”) from May 2019 to January 2020. Detour is a 600,000 ounce per annum gold producer in Canada. During his tenure, Mr. McMullen took the market capitalization from C$2.1 billion to C$4.9 billion over 7 months (date of deal announcement), which represented an internal rate of return of 208%, leading to the acquisition by Kirkland Lake Gold Ltd. in 2020. Through his strong technical background and commercial acumen, Mr. McMullen established and led a team that reduced all-in-sustaining costs (“AISC”, a mining metric that estimates all direct and recurring costs required to mine a unit of ore) by approximately US$250/oz over that period in a business that had historically been viewed as an underperforming asset. Mr. McMullen also improved safety performance and repaired relations with its First Nations partners, enabling a large increase in operations to be permitted, which was fundamental to the increase in market value of the company. Prior to Detour, Mr. McMullen served as CEO at Stillwater Mining Company (“Stillwater”) from December 2013 to December 2018, where he was instrumental to the increase in market capitalization from US$1.3 billion to US$2.2 billion against a 10% fall in platinum group metals (“PGM”) prices over the same time. Stillwater was sold to Sibanye Gold Ltd. (“Sibanye”) in an all cash deal valued at US$2.7 billion, which represented an internal rate of return of 16% during his 41-month tenure. During his time as CEO at Stillwater, the company reduced AISC by approximately US$300/oz, increased production to approximately 600,000 ounces per annum of PGM’s, developed a new mine, and built its PGM recycling business to be the largest in the world. The Stillwater business had been operating for 27 years prior to Mr. McMullen’s arrival as CEO and was viewed as a difficult operation with poor labor relations and safety track record. Leading up to its eventual sale, the company favorably renegotiated its labor agreements and reduced by half its safety incidence rate to be best-in-class in US underground mining. Mr. McMullen’s time before Stillwater involved the identification, acquisition, development, and operation of a variety of mining assets across North and South America, Europe, Australia and Africa. These ranged from gold to base metals and bulk commodities. In addition, he has provided technical and financial advisory services to many of the larger PE funds, activist funds, and banks providing mining finance. Mr. McMullen has a strong technical background and track record of identifying undervalued opportunities in the mining space, assuming a management position, optimizing the assets, and ultimately realizing shareholder value, ranging from exploration assets (one of two founders at GT Gold Corporation (“GT Gold”), which sold to Newmont Mining Corporation for C$393 million) to large integrated downstream and upstream businesses like Stillwater. Mr. McMullen is a qualified Geologist and received his B.Sc. from Newcastle University in 1992 and is currently a Non-Executive Director at Venturex Resources Limited (“Venturex”), an ASX listed base metal developer. We believe Mr. McMullen’s experience as a public mining company CEO, and experience in the metals and mining industry, give the board important insight into the industries we intend to target. 125 TABLE OF CONTENTS Marthinus (Jaco) J. Crouse (Chief Financial Officer) is seasoned mining executive with nearly 20 years of experience in financial management, mine financial planning, business optimization and strategy development. He currently serves as executive director and chief financial officer of AEX Gold. He most recently held the position as the CFO of Detour Gold from June 2019 to January 2020, where he facilitated the successful financial and operational turnaround and sale of the corporation to Kirkland Lake for C$4.9 billion. Prior to Detour, Mr. Crouse was Chief Financial Officer & Vice President-Finance of Triple Flag Mining Finance Ltd. (“Triple Flag”) from September 2016 to January 2020, a Toronto-based private metal streaming business. At Triple Flag, he developed and implemented new financial reporting systems and internal controls, successfully arranged a C$300 million revolving credit facility with major banks, and contributed to a team that committed close to US$1 billion in royalty and streaming transactions. From 2015-2016, Mr. Crouse was Vice President-Business Planning & Optimization at Barrick Gold Corp. where he was instrumental in resetting the operating cost structure (lowering the AISC from US$927/oz in Q1 2015 to US$706/oz in Q1 2016), improving the capital allocation discipline to deliver US$471M of positive free cash flow for the first time in four years by Q4 2015, and debt reduction of US$1.4 billion by Q3 2016, during a period of low gold prices. Mr. Crouse started his career in mining in 2002 by joining Xstrata plc. (“Xstrata”), the world’s largest ferrochrome producer, and went on to integrate and optimize the nickel business unit in 2007 (post the US$18.8 billion acquisition of Falconbridge Ltd), during which he worked extensively in North America. He also fulfilled the role of Asset Manager at Glencore plc (“Glencore”) following its merger with Xstrata in 2013 and was responsible for integrating the previous Xstrata Nickel marketing offices.

Prior, Mr. Vujcic led the effort to expand Jefferies’ footprint globally through its coverage of emerging small/mid-caps and family offices. Mr. Vujcic was instrumental in leading First Quantum Minerals Ltd.’s (“First Quantum”) US$5 billion acquisition of Inmet Mining Corporation. Mr. Vujcic started his investment banking career at Citi in Sydney in 2003 in the Metals & Mining team and was involved in several high-profile transactions, including Fortescue Metals Group Ltd’s US$2.5 billion US high yield bond, its initial greenfield funding, paving the way for the development of one of the largest global iron ore producers. In 2007, Mr. Vujcic moved to Morgan Stanley in London working closely on transactions with Rio Tinto plc, Anglo American plc, First Quantum, and a number of emerging markets mining clients in the CIS and Asia. Mr. Vujcic completed a Bachelor of Business with 1st Class Honours at the University of Technology, Sydney in 1999 and completed his Chartered Accountants (ICAA) qualification at Arthur Andersen in 2002.

She is Glencore’s Engagement Director for North America. Representing a family member, she has served since 2018 on the Board of private steel business Samuel, Son & Co., Mississauga. In June 2019, Ms. Merrin was appointed Chair of the Board of Detour Gold, a role which concluded with the acquisition of Detour Gold by Kirkland Lake Gold in January 2020, a transaction valued at C$4.9 billion. She has served as a director of Arconic Inc., Stillwater, CML HealthCare Inc. 126 TABLE OF CONTENTS (Chair), Novadaq Technologies Group and New Brunswick Power. She was Lead Independent Director of Kew Media Group from March 2017 to December 2019 then Chair until February 2020 at which time the company entered into CCAA. Ms. Merrin has been a nominee on several activist files.

During a period of plunging iron ore prices, Mr. Power was able to lead the business from a 55 million tonne miner with an operating cost of US$53/tonne in 2011, to a 170 million tonne vertically integrated producer with a cost of US$12/tonne in 2018.
