Joint Ventures

As part of its exploration strategy, IAMGOLD actively evaluates many exploration projects and when opportunities arise enters into Joint Ventures on compelling projects. Current Joint Ventures include:

Monster Lake, Quebec

Partner: Option Agreement with Toma Gold Corporation.

The Project: The Monster Lake Project, located 50 kilometres southwest of Chibougamau, Quebec, is held under an earn-in option to joint venture agreement with TomaGold Corporation. The Company holds an undivided 50% interest in the property, and holds an option to earn a further 25% undivided interest, for a total 75% undivided interest in the Project.

Effective December 31, 2018, reported mineral resources for the Monster Lake Project, on a 100% basis, comprised 1.1 million tonnes of inferred resources grading 12.14 g/t Au for 433,300 ounces, assuming an underground mining scenario (see news releases dated March 28, 2018 and February 19, 2019). A supporting NI 43-101 Technical Report was filed on SEDAR on May 10, 2018.

Nelligan, Quebec

Partner: Earn-in option agreement with Vanstar Mining Resources Inc.

The Project: The Nelligan Gold Project, located 60 kilometres southwest of Chibougamau, Quebec, and 15 kilometres south of our Monster Lake Project, is held under an earn-in option to joint venture agreement with Vanstar. The Company holds an undivided 51% interest in the property, and holds an option to earn a further 24% undivided interest.

Effective October 22, 2019, reported mineral resources, on a 100% basis, comprised 96,990,000 tonnes averaging 1.02 grams of gold per tonne for 3,193,900 ounces of contained gold. A supporting NI 43-101 Technical Report was filed on SEDAR on December 4, 2019.

Eastern Borosi, Nicaragua

Partner: Option Agreement with Calibre Mining Corporation.

The Project: The 176-square-kilometre Eastern Borosi Project is located in the Golden Triangle of Northeast Nicaragua and is held under an earn-in option to joint venture agreement with Calibre Mining Corporation (“Calibre”). The Company currently holds an initial 51% interest in the Project and has exercised its right to enter the second option to earn up to a 70% interest in the Project.

Exploration to date on the Eastern Borosi Project has outlined several tens of kilometres of prospective mineralized structures located in an historic gold-silver mining district. Historical drilling by previous explorers and Calibre intersected low sulphidation epithermal gold-silver mineralization hosted within porphyritic andesite. The vein systems consist of structurally controlled, high-energy quartz-carbonate vein breccias, vein-stockworks and discrete smokey quartz veins containing fine grained sulphide minerals. Targets have been defined by surface soil and rock sampling, trenching and drilling.

Effective December 31, 2018, reported mineral resources, on a 100% basis, included underground inferred resources totaling 3.2 million tonnes grading 6.03 g/t Au and 104 g/t Ag for 624,000 ounces of contained gold and 10,758,500 ounces of contained silver, respectively; and open pit inferred resources totaling 1.2 million tonnes grading 1.98 g/t Au and 16 g/t Ag, for 76,500 ounces of contained gold and 601,000 ounces of contained silver, respectively (see news releases dated April 3, 2018 and February 19, 2019). A supporting NI 43-101 Technical Report was filed on SEDAR on May 14, 2018.
