SOURCE CORRECTION: Steppe Gold Announces Gold Prepayment Facility


This document corrects and replaces in its entirety the previous version which was published by Steppe Gold Limited earlier today, where it should have read, “Triple Flag Gold Prepayment Facility will be repaid over 6 months from December 23, 2022 by six monthly deliveries of 500 ounces of gold for a total of 3,000 ounces. instead of “December 23, 2023”. The corrected version can be found below and all other content of this version is unchanged:

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia– (Newsfile Corp. – September 29, 2022) – Steppe Gold Limited (TSX: STGO) (OTCQX: STPGF) (FSE: 2J9) (“Steppe Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Triple Flag International Ltd (“Triple Flag”) for a short-term gold prepayment facility (the “Triple Flag Gold Prepayment Facility”).

One of the consequences of the zero covid policy in China and the border closures between China and Mongolia has been a shortage of US dollars available from banks in Mongolia. Revenue from sales of Steppe Gold is received in Mongolian tugrik. Although most of its running costs are also paid in local currency, we require US dollars to acquire reagents and finance deliveries to Triple Flag. The Triple Flag Gold Prepayment Facility allows Steppe Gold to continue to meet all of its obligations during this temporary market disruption.

Prepayment represents an elegant financing solution for a short-term currency issuance. The company is operating as planned with gold pours every two weeks and progress on Phase 2 expansion efforts continues.

Under the terms of the agreement, Triple Flag advanced net funds of US$4.6 million to Steppe Gold after fees and legal expenses. The Triple Flag Gold prepayment facility will be repaid over 6 months from December 23, 2022 by six monthly deliveries of 500 ounces of gold for a total of 3,000 ounces.
