Masbate’s money working prices per ounce bought for the second quarter of 2022 had been larger than funds by $32 per ounce (4%), however the influence of upper second quarter of 2022 gasoline prices was partially offset by decrease value stock produced within the first quarter of 2022 being bought within the second quarter of 2022.

Masbate’s AISC for the second quarter of 2022 had been $1,082 per ounce bought (Q2 2021 – $899 per ounce bought), consistent with funds as larger than budgeted realized features on the settlement of gasoline derivatives offset larger than budgeted money working prices (as described above) and better than budgeted capital expenditures as a result of timing variations.

For the primary half of 2022, Masbate Mine’s gold manufacturing of 114,139 ounces was nicely above funds by 6% (6,706 ounces) because of larger than budgeted mill throughput, and corresponding to the primary half of 2021.

For the primary half of 2022, Masbate’s money working prices had been $772 per ounce produced ( $773 per ounce bought), barely above funds by $25 per ounce produced (3%), as larger than budgeted diesel and HFO prices had been largely offset by larger than budgeted gold manufacturing. As anticipated, Masbate’s money working prices had been larger within the first half of 2022 in comparison with $612 per ounce produced ( $627 per ounce bought) within the first half of 2021, primarily because of larger gasoline and consumable prices.

Masbate’s AISC for the primary half of 2022 had been $1,054 per ounce bought (first half of 2021 – $860 per ounce bought), under funds by $90 per ounce bought (8%), primarily attributable to decrease than budgeted capital expenditures and better than budgeted realized features on the settlement of gasoline derivatives which had been partially offset by barely larger than budgeted money working prices and decrease than budgeted gold ounces bought. The decrease than budgeted sustaining capital expenditures had been primarily a results of timing of expenditures and anticipated to be incurred later in 2022.

Capital expenditures within the second quarter of 2022 totaled $14 million , primarily consisting of $9 million for cellular tools purchases and rebuilds, $2 million for a further powerhouse generator and $2 million for tailings storage facility tasks. Capital expenditures within the first half of 2022 totaled $20 million , primarily consisting of $10 million for cellular tools purchases and rebuilds, $3 million for a further powerhouse generator and $2 million for tailings storage facility tasks.

In gentle of the Masbate Mine’s constructive manufacturing efficiency to this point in 2022, it’s now anticipated to provide between 215,000 and 225,000 ounces of gold in 2022 (unique steerage vary was between 205,000 and 215,000 ounces of gold). Masbate’s gold manufacturing is scheduled to be comparatively constant all through 2022. Masbate’s money working prices for the primary half of 2022 had been above its first half steerage vary of between $730 and $770 per ounce. After factoring in present gasoline worth will increase at Masbate, Masbate’s money working prices for the second half of 2022 are actually anticipated to be between $890 to $930 per ounce (unique second half steerage vary was between $760 to $800 per ounce). Masbate’s AISC for the primary half of 2022 had been under its first half steerage vary of between $1,120 and $1,160 per ounce. After factoring in present gasoline worth will increase at Masbate and the anticipated timing of remaining sustaining capital expenditures, Masbate’s AISC are actually anticipated to be between $1,140 and $1,180 per ounce for the second half of 2022 (unique second half steerage vary was between $1,020 and $1,060 per ounce).

General, for full-year 2022, with the will increase being skilled in gasoline costs, Masbate’s money working prices are actually anticipated to be within the vary of between $820 and $860 per ounce (unique steerage vary was between $740 and $780 per ounce). Masbate’s AISC annual steerage vary stays unchanged, with Masbate’s AISC anticipated to be on the higher finish of its steerage vary of between $1,070 and $1,110 per ounce for full-year 2022.

Otjikoto Gold Mine – Namibia

The Otjikoto Mine in Namibia produced 31,417 ounces of gold within the second quarter of 2022, 2,027 ounces (6%) under funds. The decrease than budgeted gold manufacturing within the second quarter of 2022 was as a result of a slower than deliberate ramp-up in growth of the Wolfshag Underground mine, leading to decrease than budgeted mined grade. The Firm not too long ago appointed a brand new underground mining contractor and growth charges within the Wolfshag Underground mine have recovered, with growth ore now anticipated within the third quarter of 2022 and stope ore manufacturing commencing within the fourth quarter of 2022. Because of this modification in ore manufacturing timing, the 2022 annual manufacturing steerage vary for Otjikoto has been revised to between 165,000 and 175,000 ounces of gold. As anticipated, gold manufacturing within the second quarter of 2022 was larger by 17% (4,526 ounces) in comparison with the second quarter of 2021 as a result of important waste stripping operations at each the Wolfshag and Otjikoto pits within the first half of 2021.

For the second quarter of 2022, mill feed grade was 1.17 g/t in comparison with funds of 1.25 g/t and 0.99 g/t within the second quarter of 2021; mill throughput was 0.85 million tonnes in comparison with funds of 0.85 million tonnes and 0.86 million tonnes within the second quarter of 2021; and gold restoration averaged 98.4% in comparison with funds of 98.0% and 97.8% within the second quarter of 2021. As famous above, processed grade within the second quarter of 2022 was decrease than budgeted as a result of delays within the growth of the Wolfshag Underground mine and better in comparison with the second quarter of 2021 as a result of important waste stripping at each the Wolfshag and Otjikoto pits within the first half of 2021.

For the second quarter of 2022, Otjikoto’s money working prices had been $1,136 per ounce produced ( $1,018 per ounce bought), barely under funds by $24 per ounce produced (2%), primarily because of the advantages of a weaker than budgeted Namibian greenback and delay in incurring Wolfshag Underground mining working prices, partially offset by larger than budgeted gasoline costs. Otjikoto’s money working prices within the second quarter of 2022 had been larger in comparison with $854 per ounce produced ( $885 per ounce bought) within the second quarter of 2021, primarily because of larger gasoline prices in 2022.

Otjikoto’s AISC for the second quarter of 2022 had been $1,403 per ounce bought (Q2 2021 – $1,613 per ounce bought), considerably under funds by $214 per ounce bought (13%), primarily as a result of barely decrease than budgeted money working prices, decrease than budgeted sustaining capital expenditures and better than budgeted realized features on the settlement of gasoline derivatives, partially offset by decrease than budgeted gold ounces bought. The decrease sustaining capital expenditures are primarily a results of timing of expenditures and anticipated to be incurred later in 2022.

For the primary half of 2022, the Otjikoto Mine produced 66,478 ounces of gold, consistent with funds and 33% (16,545 ounces) larger than the primary half of 2021.

For the primary half of 2022, Otjikoto’s money working prices had been $943 per ounce produced ( $763 per gold ounce bought), under funds by $40 per ounce produced (4%) (for the explanations described above) and better by $50 per ounce produced (6%) in comparison with the primary half of 2021, primarily as a result of larger gasoline prices within the first half of 2022. Otjikoto’s money working prices per ounce bought for the primary half of 2022 had been considerably under funds by $220 per ounce bought (22%), primarily because of the sale of decrease value stock produced in 2021.

Otjikoto’s AISC for the primary half of 2022 had been $1,090 per ounce bought (first half 2021 – $1,542 per ounce bought), considerably under funds by $386 per ounce bought (26%) for the explanations described above.

Capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2022 totaled $23 million , primarily consisting of $13 million for Wolfshag Underground mine growth, $5 million for pre-stripping within the Otjikoto Pit, $3 million for cellular tools purchases and rebuilds and $2 million for the nationwide energy grid connection line. Capital expenditures for the primary half of 2022 totaled $39 million , primarily consisting of $19 million for Wolfshag Underground mine growth, $11 million for pre-stripping within the Otjikoto Pit, $5 million for cellular tools purchases and rebuilds and $4 million for the nationwide energy grid connection line.

The Otjikoto Mine is now anticipated to provide between 165,000 and 175,000 ounces of gold in 2022 (unique steerage vary of 175,000 to 185,000 ounces). For the second half of 2022, Otjikoto’s gold manufacturing is anticipated to extend considerably to between 100,000 and 105,000 ounces. Otjikoto’s money working prices for the primary half of 2022 had been under its first half steerage vary of between $960 and $1,000 per ounce and, because of the weighting of Otjikoto manufacturing, are nonetheless anticipated to considerably lower within the second half of 2022. After factoring in present gasoline worth will increase at Otjikoto, Otjikoto’s money working prices for the second half of 2022 are actually anticipated to be between $640 to $680 per ounce (unique second half steerage vary was between $620 to $660 per ounce). Otjikoto’s AISC for the primary half of 2022 had been considerably under its first half steerage vary of between $1,460 and $1,500 per ounce. After factoring in present gasoline worth will increase at Otjikoto and the anticipated timing of remaining sustaining capital expenditures, Otjikoto’s AISC for the second half of 2022 are actually anticipated to be between $1,110 and $1,150 per ounce (unique second half steerage vary was between $930 and $970 per ounce).

General and after factoring within the constructive working ends in the primary half of 2022, Otjikoto’s prices steerage ranges for full-year 2022 stay unchanged. For full-year 2022, Otjikoto’s money working prices are anticipated to be on the higher finish of its annual steerage vary of between $740 and $780 per ounce and Otjikoto’s AISC are anticipated to be inside its steerage vary of between $1,120 and $1,160 per ounce.

Growth

Anaconda Space (comprised of the Menankoto and Bantako North permits) and Bakolobi – Mali

Fekola North and Anaconda Exploration

On March 23, 2022 , the Firm introduced further constructive exploration drilling outcomes from Fekola North and the Anaconda space which is comprised of the Menankoto allow and the Bantako North allow situated roughly 20 kilometres from the Fekola Mine. Excessive grade outcomes from the Fekola North goal space similar to drill gap FKD_641, which returned 4.28 g/t gold over 19.15 metres, from 529.0 metres, gives robust help for ongoing analysis of underground growth of the deepest parts of the Fekola Mine deposit. Within the Anaconda space, drill gap MSD_212, which returned 8.09 g/t gold over 15.8 metres, from 431.1 metres, confirms the presence of excessive grade sulphide, roughly 100 metres under the boundaries of the present Mineral Useful resource pit boundary. The great grade and width mixtures on the Anaconda space proceed to offer a robust indication of the potential for Fekola-style plunging our bodies of sulphide mineralization, which stay open at depth. Ongoing drilling by the Firm on the Anaconda space to infill and prolong the saprolite Mineral Useful resource space, and to comply with up on the sulphide mineralization, together with the Mamba and Adder zones, in addition to a number of different targets under the saprolite mineralization, continues to generate constructive drill ends in each saprolite and sulphide domains and demonstrates robust potential to additional improve the up to date Anaconda space Mineral Useful resource estimate (see under).

On March 23, 2022 , the Firm introduced an up to date and considerably elevated Mineral Useful resource estimate for the Anaconda space. The up to date and considerably elevated Anaconda Mineral Useful resource estimate (as at January 11, 2022) constrained inside a conceptual pit shell at a gold worth of $1,800 per ounce included an preliminary Indicated Mineral Useful resource estimate of 32,400,000 tonnes at 1.08 g/t gold for a complete 1,130,000 ounces of gold, and Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate of 63,700,000 tonnes at 1.12 g/t gold for two,280,000 ounces of gold. The Mineral Useful resource estimate included first time reporting of 1,130,000 ounces of Indicated Mineral Assets and a rise of 1,510,000 ounces (196% improve) of Inferred Mineral Assets because the preliminary Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate in 2017 (21,590,000 tonnes at 1.11 g/t gold, for 767,000 ounces).

In April 2022 , the Firm acquired the Bakolobi allow in Mali from a neighborhood Malian firm. The Bakolobi allow is situated between the Menankoto allow, to the North, and the Fekola Mine’s Medinandi allow, wrapping across the latter to its south-west finish, overlaying an space of 100 km 2 . The acquisition of the Bakolobi allow ends in the possession by the Firm of 4 contiguous exploration and/or exploitation permits overlaying 237 km 2 , extending from the northwestern finish of the Bantako North allow and the North-East of the Menankoto allow, southwest of the Medinandi allow (Fekola Mine and Cardinal Zone) to the southeast finish of the Bakolobi allow.

B2Gold’s acquisition of Oklo and its flagship Dandoko challenge, which is anticipated to be accomplished in mid-September 2022 , will prolong the footprint of B2Gold’s exploration in Mali to over 1,700 km 2 and add the Dandoko challenge’s JORC 2012 compliant Measured and Indicated Mineral Useful resource estimate of 8.70 million tonnes at 1.88 g/t for 528,000 ounces of gold and an Inferred Mineral Useful resource estimate of two.63 million tonnes at 1.67 g/t for 141,000 ounces of gold, to B2Gold’s quickly rising Mineral Useful resource stock within the area. The Firm believes there’s robust potential to increase the mineralization on the Dandoko challenge.

Fekola Advanced Regional Growth

In 2022, the Firm budgeted $33 million for growth of infrastructure for Section I saprolite mining on the Anaconda space, together with highway development. Primarily based on the up to date Mineral Useful resource estimate and B2Gold’s preliminary planning, the Firm has demonstrated {that a} pit located on the Anaconda space may present selective larger grade saprolite materials (common grade of two.2 g/t) to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill at a charge of 1.5 million tonnes each year. With the anticipated closing of the acquisition of Oklo and its flagship Dandoko challenge in mid-September 2022 , the Firm is presently evaluating its choices for the timing and sourcing of fabric on a regional foundation from all deposits throughout the Fekola Advanced space (together with Fekola, Cardinal, Dandoko, Bakalobi and the Anaconda Space ). This up to date analysis is anticipated to be accomplished by the tip of 2022, with first saprolite manufacturing now anticipated within the second quarter of 2023. Topic to acquiring all needed permits and completion of a last growth plan, the Firm intends to start its deliberate Section 1 infrastructure growth within the fourth quarter of 2022. Trucking of selective larger grade saprolite materials to the Fekola mill would improve the ore processed and annual gold manufacturing from the Fekola mill, with the potential so as to add a median of roughly 80,000 to 100,000 ounces per yr to the Fekola mill’s annual gold manufacturing.

Primarily based on this up to date Mineral Useful resource estimate and the 2022 exploration drilling outcomes, the Firm has commenced a Section II scoping examine to assessment the challenge economics of setting up a stand-alone mill close to the Anaconda space. Topic to receipt of a constructive Section II scoping examine, the Firm expects that the saprolite materials would proceed to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill throughout the development interval for the Anaconda space stand-alone mill.

Gramalote Venture (B2Gold – 50%/AngloGold – 50%) – Colombia

Primarily based on the preliminary outcomes of the optimized feasibility examine for the Gramalote gold challenge in Colombia (the “Gramalote Venture”), a three way partnership between B2Gold and AngloGold, each companions have decided that the challenge doesn’t presently meet their funding thresholds for growth of the challenge right now. Due to this fact, along side finalizing the Gramalote Feasibility Examine by the tip of the third quarter of 2022, B2Gold and AngloGold have collectively made the choice to assessment the alternate options for the Gramalote Venture over the approaching months.

Following a assessment of the Gramalote Venture’s optimized feasibility examine work accomplished to this point, which included revisiting the unique Gramalote Venture design parameters within the current mining allow (as utilized within the Gramalote Preliminary Financial Evaluation in January 2020 and historic AngloGold research) and additional optimizing challenge design, along with a assessment of the extra drilling of Indicated and Inferred parts of the Mineral Useful resource space and updating capital and working prices to mirror each optimized challenge growth and anticipated capital and working prices, the end result was that the Gramalote Venture doesn’t meet the interior funding indicators that may help additional challenge growth right now.

Whereas the overall traits of the Gramalote Venture stay fixed and the challenge advantages from a low strip ratio, low processing prices, and a beneficial relationship with the native and regional stakeholders, key adjustments to the challenge economics had been recognized throughout the optimized feasibility examine work which mix to preclude growth of the challenge by the three way partnership. On a worldwide scale, value inflation has resulted in estimated capital value will increase of roughly 12%, coupled with unsure long-term working prices. Extra detailed useful resource modelling signifies that the grade-tonnage traits of the ore physique resulted in decrease than anticipated processing head grade and annual ounce manufacturing, particularly throughout the first 5 years of manufacturing together with the payback interval. These adjustments end in decrease than anticipated challenge internet current worth and inside charge of return, under the funding threshold of every three way partnership companion.

The Gramalote Venture continues to learn from robust federal and native authorities help in addition to persevering with help from native communities. B2Gold and AngloGold intend to collectively full a complete assessment of the alternate options referring to the Gramalote Venture and contemplate the pursuits of all stakeholders in making a choice on the way forward for the challenge.

Abstract and Outlook

The Firm is happy with its second quarter of 2022 outcomes, significantly given the challenges mining corporations are going through all over the world. Primarily based on a robust operational and monetary first half of 2022, the Firm is on observe to satisfy its annual gold manufacturing steerage for 2022 of between 990,000 and 1,050,000 ounces (together with 40,000 and 50,000 attributable ounces projected from Calibre). Consolidated money working prices and AISC had been under funds for the primary half of 2022. Money working prices and AISC steerage for every operation for the second half of 2022 have been revised to mirror the present will increase in gasoline pricing and anticipated timing of remaining sustaining capital expenditures for 2022.  Nonetheless, after factoring within the constructive value ends in the primary half of 2022, whole consolidated prices steerage ranges for full-year 2022 stay unchanged. Whole consolidated money working prices for full yr 2022 are anticipated to be on the higher finish of the Firm’s unique steerage vary of between $620 and $660 per ounce and inside its whole consolidated AISC steerage vary of between $1,010 and $1,050 per ounce.

Following the receipt of the Menankoto allow in Mali , the Firm is increasing the scope of its exploration actions on the Anaconda space (comprised of the Menankoto allow and the Bantako North allow) to construct on the profitable exploration applications already accomplished to this point. The Firm will proceed to comply with up on the sulphide mineralization on the Mamba, Adder and a number of other different targets under the saprolite mineralization in 2022. On April 21, 2022 the Firm accomplished the acquisition of the Bakolobi allow in Mali from a neighborhood Malian firm. The Bakolobi allow is situated between the Menankoto allow, to the North, and the Fekola Mine’s Medinandi allow, wrapping across the latter to its south-west finish, overlaying an space of 100 km 2 . The acquisition of the Bakolobi allow ends in the possession by the Firm of 4 contiguous exploration and/or exploitation permits overlaying 237 km 2 .

In 2022, the Firm budgeted $33 million for growth of infrastructure for Section I saprolite mining on the Anaconda space, together with highway development. Primarily based on the up to date Mineral Useful resource estimate and B2Gold’s preliminary planning, the Firm has demonstrated {that a} pit located on the Anaconda space may present selective larger grade saprolite materials (common grade of two.2 g/t) to be trucked to and fed into the Fekola mill at a charge of 1.5 million tonnes each year. With the anticipated closing of the acquisition of Oklo and its flagship Dandoko challenge in mid-September 2022 , the Firm is presently evaluating its choices for the timing and sourcing of fabric on a regional foundation from all deposits throughout the Fekola Advanced space (together with Fekola, Cardinal, Dandoko, Bakalobi and the Anaconda Space ). This up to date analysis is anticipated to be accomplished by the tip of 2022, with first saprolite manufacturing now anticipated within the second quarter of 2023. Topic to acquiring all needed permits and completion of a last growth plan, the Firm intends to start its deliberate Section 1 infrastructure growth within the fourth quarter of 2022. Trucking of selective larger grade saprolite materials to the Fekola mill would improve the ore processed and annual gold manufacturing from the Fekola mill, with the potential so as to add a median of roughly 80,000 to 100,000 ounces per yr to the Fekola mill’s annual gold manufacturing.

After a really profitable yr for exploration in 2021, B2Gold is conducting an aggressive exploration marketing campaign in 2022 with a revised funds of roughly $75 million (excluding the Gramalote Venture). Exploration will focus predominantly in Mali , different working mine websites in Namibia and the Philippines , and continued deal with grassroots targets all over the world. A few years of goal era and pursuing alternatives in potential gold areas has culminated within the Firm allocating a file $29 million for its grassroots exploration applications, together with a number of new areas. Included within the grassroots exploration program is $8 million allotted to Finland for the Central Lapland Joint Enterprise with Aurion Assets Ltd. Most importantly, the westward extension of Rupert Assets’ Ikarri discovery developments straight onto the Joint Enterprise floor. This pattern (named the Helmi pattern on the three way partnership floor) coincides with B2Gold’s base-of-till drilling and the identical interpreted construction as outlined by airborne geophysics. Diamond drilling in 2021 has confirmed the presence of mineralization on this construction and is being efficiently adopted up with 11,600 metres deliberate in 2022.

The Firm’s ongoing technique is to proceed to maximise worthwhile manufacturing from its mines, additional advance its pipeline of remaining growth and exploration tasks, consider new exploration, growth and manufacturing alternatives and proceed to pay an trade main dividend yield.
