A second distribution of up to US $2 million, subject to certain conditions, is due to EMX later in 2019 as remaining funds are released from escrow.

Proceeds from the sale of Malmyzh, combined with ongoing royalty and pre-production payments, have yielded a robust balance sheet. EMX is utilizing this strong position to take advantage of new royalty generation, royalty acquisition, and investment opportunities to grow the portfolio and build shareholder value.
