2016 Production Update

Gran Colombia also announced today that its total gold production for the month of May was 13,141 ounces bringing the total for the first five months of 2016 to 56,682 ounces, up 36% over the same period last year. At the Segovia Operations, 11,023 ounces of gold were produced in May bringing its total production to 46,976 ounces for the first five months of 2016, up 44% over the same period last year. A 50% increase in tonnes milled in 2016, averaging 735 tpd through the first five months, has been the primary contributor to Segovia's production improvement in 2016. In the Company-operated mining areas at Segovia, which represent about half of the tonnes milled this year, development and mechanization activities in the Providencia and El Silencio mines have generated a 50% improvement in tonnes milled in 2016 and a 17% increase in head grades compared with the same period last year. Gran Colombia has also seen a 49% increase in ore sourced from the contract mining cooperatives in the first five months of 2016 with head grades averaging 22 g/t. At the Marmato underground mine, May's gold production of 2,118 ounces brought the total for the first five months of 2016 to 9,707 ounces, up 7% over the same period last year. Gran Colombia remains on track to meet its annual production guidance of 120,000 to 138,000 ounces of gold.
