About Management • The Partnership is led by a seasoned management team with deep mining industry expertise • Collectively, we cover more than 100 years of experience with a proven track record of success across exploration, construction, project finance, M&A and capital markets • Our Chief Geologist is credited with significant discoveries in Latin America, including La Danta and Coco (Nicaragua), Cerro Chorcha (Panama), Los Calatos, Pucamarca, Quimsachata and MarthaOrconcocha (Peru) • Our management team is credited with over 5 billion pounds of copper and 35 million ounces of gold discoveries in Latin America and numerous value-creating M&A transactions • Our involvement with mining companies has produced significant returns for shareholders • We take pride in being diligent and aligning our interests with our target companies • We are careful, patient, and mindful of the jurisdictions we entertain • We never fall in love with properties • Foremost, we have a longstanding track record of creating value for investors and shareholders

Investment Strategy • Our focus is the mining sector, specifically undervalued and orphaned projects developing gold and copper resources (both privately and publicly owned) • Our search for investable assets focuses on advanced stage projects with significant sunk costs • We recognize the inherent value of an on-hand completed or near-term to completion NI 43-101 Technical Report • We pursue opportunities based on past drill activity, advanced stage of technical studies, and strategic location • Diversification of assets is an important feature of our strategy • Staying within mining-friendly jurisdictions where our past successes were realized allows us to pursue future opportunities with great confidence • Incubating companies is a meaningful component of our strategy • The Partnership follows an “activist” approach to its investments (meaning that we may acquire a significant minority stake in a publicly traded company with a view to changing how it is run) • Our goals in this regard may be as modest as advising company management or as ambitious as forcing the sale of the company, pursuing divestitures or restructuring, or replacing the board of directors (we capably acted as situations required on select occasions)

Due Diligence • Our practice is to be conservative in our approach • Meeting with the target company’s board members and management team is essential to our decision-making process • We take every aspect of a company into account • If we do not understand, we ask • We are not satisfied unless we learn all we can about the target project, the company, and the jurisdiction • Analysis of historical and technical data is meaningful to us and ensures we assess relevant documentation in detail • Evaluation of project-related expenses and sunk costs incurred allows us to determine returns on resources attained, an integral indicator of our valuation process • The conduct of due diligence by our team is (and will be) supported by renowned industry advisors as

ESG • DGC believes that to be successful, mining projects must consider ESG early in a project’s development.

Developing Successful Targets • Successful gold and copper targets are developed, among other things, by relying on the old real estate adage, “three of the most important factors for a successful venture are location, location, and LOCATION” • In designing a winning exploration program, the three most important factors are sampling, sampling, SAMPLING • We consider on-the ground-team achievements and the deployment of the latest technologies, including advanced sampling practices • Rocks are the primary host from which soil and sediment are derived through natural weathering and erosional processes. 

Success • The key to discovery success is how primary materials that comprise typical exploration samples are collected and analyzed • Dedicated exploration toolboxes increasingly facilitate favorable success in the discovery of ore deposits in variable terrains • Reliance on world-class laboratories and the corresponding analysis of results is imperative to success
