1 The royalty portfolio sold to EMX as part of the Transaction was reduced from 18 properties to 16, as the operator of two royalty properties in Mexico exercised a right of first refusal to acquire the royalties under the terms of their existing royalty agreements. The total consideration for the two royalties to be paid by the operator to SSR Mining is US$530,000, which was deducted as a Purchase price adjustment from the share consideration paid to SSR Mining by EMX.
