As part of its acquisition of a portfolio of approximately 20 royalties from Barrick in November 2013, Franco-Nevada has a 3% NSR on production from the Hardrock property that is being advanced by Greenstone Gold Mines L.P. (“Greenstone”), a 50/50 partnership between Premier and Centerra Gold Inc (“Centerra”). The Hardrock property is part of the larger Trans-Canada project with Hardrock representing the core project.

A Feasibility Study is expected to be completed in mid-2016 and the partnership continues to advance permitting for approvals to construct a mine at Hardrock.
