Business Overview
Aris Mining is a gold producer in the Americas with an attractive blend of current production, exploration programs, and growth projects. The Company operates two mines in Colombia, the Segovia Operations and the Marmato Upper Mine, which produced 226,151 ounces of gold in 2023. With expansion projects in progress, Segovia and Marmato aim to produce a combined 500,000 ounces of gold in 2026. Aris Mining also operates and is the 20% owner of the Proyecto Soto Norte joint venture, where environmental licensing is advancing to develop a new underground gold, silver and copper mine. In Guyana, Aris Mining is advancing the Toroparu Project, a gold/copper project. Aris Mining is committed to pursuing acquisitions and other growth opportunities to unlock value through scale and diversification.

Q1 2024 Highlights
Segovia Expansion Project
The Segovia expansion project, which was announced in Q4 2023 and includes increasing processing capacity from 2,000 to 3,000 tonnes per day, is progressing as scheduled.
Mill sizing optimization studies have been completed and reviewed by two engineering firms, civil works for the relocated ore receiving area are 85% complete, major equipment orders have been placed, and geotechnical test work for the mill and silo foundations are complete.
Once complete and following a ramp up period, Segovia is expected to produce over 300,000 ounces of gold per year.
Marmato Lower Mine Expansion
Aris Mining commenced construction of the new Marmato Lower Mine in Q3 2023 following the receipt of environmental permits in July 2023.
The Lower Mine access road has reached the portal level, which allows the portal contractor access to their work area. The first of the three benches of stabilization anchors for the decline development have been completed. The second phase of the contract for the decline development has been submitted to a third party review and will be awarded imminently.
During Q1 2024, the majority of the mechanical equipment has been ordered, including the crushers, ball and SAG mills, gravity concentrators, thickeners, and filter presses.
The Lower Mine will access wider porphyry mineralization below the Upper Mine, which is a historic narrow vein mine with small-scale, labour-intensive mining. The Upper and Lower Mine are estimated to produce 162,000 ounces of gold per year over a 20-year mine life1.

Operational & Financial Results
Aris Mining achieved gold production of 50,768 ounces (oz) from its two operations in Colombia, the Segovia Operations and the Marmato Upper Mine, for the three months ending March 31 (Q1), 2024. The operations are on-track to achieve full year 2024 production guidance of 220,000 to 240,000 ounces.
Plant throughput at the Segovia Operations was slightly reduced during Q1 due to planned maintenance, while achieving processed gold grades of 9.42 g/t, consistent with the mine plan.
The Segovia Operations produced 44,909 ounces of gold with an all-in sustaining cost per ounce sold (AISC1) of $1,434 for Q1 2024.
The Segovia Operations had attributable gold sales from:
owner-operated mining of 22,446 ounces; and
contract partner mining of 22,842 ounces.
The Segovia Operations generated free cash flow1 before tax and expansion capital of $13.8 million.
Consolidated EBITDA for the quarter increased by 11.2% over Q1 2023 to $22.4 million, with adjusted EBITDA for the quarter totaling $28.4 million.
Net loss of $0.7 million recognized in Q1 2024 reflects an improvement in earnings of $5.6 million over the $6.4 million loss recognized in Q1 2023. Adjusted earnings for Q1 2024 totaled $5.4 million.
Aris Mining spent $30.1 million on growth and expansion investments1, including $11.0 million at the Segovia Operations, $17.1 million at the Marmato Upper and Lower Mines, and $1.9 million at the Toroparu Project during the quarter.

1.Refer to the Non-IFRS Measures section for a full reconciliation of cash costs ($ per oz sold) and AISC ($ per oz sold) to the most directly comparable financial measure disclosed in the Interim Financial Statements. Comparative AISC values have been adjusted from amounts previously disclosed following a change in the methodology used to calculate total cash costs ($ per oz sold) and AISC ($ per oz sold) in Q3 of 2022.
Over the trailing eight quarters of results, earnings from mine operations has remained in the $25 million to $40 million range, driven by gold sales of between 49,000 and 59,000 ounces per quarter. Net earnings (loss) and earnings (loss) per share fluctuated throughout the last eight quarters, and were significantly impacted by the revaluation of financial instruments between periods, acquisition and restructuring costs, and gains and losses from fair value charges to investments related to acquisitions and divestments.
During the year ended December 31, 2023, the Company identified a non-material error in the fair value of the listed warrant liability previously reported as at December 31, 2022. As a result of these adjustments, there was a reduction in net income of $5.5 million ($0.06 per share, basic and $0.05 per share diluted) for the three months ended December 31, 2022, a reduction in net income of $1.0 million ($0.01 per share basic and diluted) in the three months ended March 31, 2023, an increase in net income of $1.6 million ($0.01 per share basic and diluted) in the three months ended June 30, 2023, an increase in net income of $1.4 million ($0.01 per share basic and diluted) in the three months ended September 30, 2023 and a reduction in net income of $2.1 million ($0.01 per share basic and diluted) in the three months ended December 31, 2023. The counter adjustment to each of the above recast adjustments was made on the statement of financial position to the warrant liability.

Gold production at the Segovia Operations of 44,909 ounces in Q1 2024 reflects a marginal decrease against the 46,513 ounces achieved in Q1 2023. Tonnes processed during the quarter were impacted by six days of downtime at the processing plant for planned maintenance. Despite the downtime, tonnes processed during Q1 2024 represent a 3% increase over the same period in 2023. Processed grade decreased by 7% for Q1 2024 over the same period in

2023. The lower grades achieved in Q1 2024 are consistent with the Segovia mine plan, with current mine development on track to allow production from higher-grade areas from Q2 2024 onwards.

Cash costs per ounce sold in Q1 2024 were $1,162, increasing from $814 per ounce over the same period in 2023. Operating costs for Q1 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023 were negatively impacted by:
Elevated inflationary environment: Inflation in Colombia remained elevated during 2023 and the start of 2024, with inflation peaking in April 2023 at 13% and retreating to 7% by March 2024.
Strengthening COP against the USD: The Colombian peso ("COP") strengthened by 17% against the US dollar from USD1:COP4,627 on March 31, 2023 to USD1:COP3,842 on March 31, 2024.
Increasing gold price: As further discussed below, the market price of gold is a direct input to the price of mill feed purchased from the contract mining partner segment of the Segovia Operations. The impact of the 10% higher realized gold price in Q1 2024, when compared to Q1 2023, resulted in an increase in the price of mill-feed purchased on a recoverable ounce basis, which in turn increased the cash costs associated with this segment of the operations.

By-product and concentrate revenue credits included in total cash costs decreased from $4.9 million for Q1 2023 to $2.3 million for Q1 2024. Concentrate revenue accounted for $3.9 million of the total $4.9 million in credits recognized in Q1 2023. Q1 2023 marked the initial shipment of lead and zinc concentrate from the polymetallic processing plant, which became operational in early Q4 2022. Consequently, the first batch of concentrate shipped in Q1 2023 included accumulated production from the polymetallic plant, which was gradually built up since its commissioning.

AISC per ounce sold increased in Q1 2024 as compared to Q1 2023, which was driven by the increase in cash costs as explained above, as well as a 13% increase in production taxes, which are calculated as a percentage of revenue and which increased by 11% in Q1 2024 as compared to the same period in 2023. The higher cash costs and production taxes were partially offset by a decrease in sustaining capital spend.

Sustaining capital expenditures of $6.5 million at the Segovia Operations in Q1 2024 included:
$1.0 million for ongoing infill drilling and mine geology campaigns at the four operating mines;
$4.0 million for ongoing mine development and underground equipment; and
$0.4 million for plant and surface infrastructure improvements.

Non-sustaining capital expenditures of $11.0 million at the Segovia Operations in Q1 2024 included $2.6 million related to drilling completed under the strategic exploration program, $6.6 million related to non-sustaining mine development and equipment purchases, $0.9 million on expanding the current tailings storage facility and $0.2 million for a new Human Resources Information System.

Outflows related to working capital movements are largely driven by the settlement of accounts payable outstanding at December 31, 2023, as well as the build-up VAT receivables during Q1 2024 in accordance with the Colombian Tax Authorities practice of settling VAT refunds related to the preceding year in the second quarter of the current year.

The price of mill feed purchased from the contract mining partners ("CMPs") at Segovia Operations is determined using the grade of the material and the market price of gold at the time of purchase, per the terms of our contracts. The price of this purchased mill feed will fluctuate over time in line with movements in the market price of gold – allowing for relatively stable margins from the CMP segment. This pricing mechanism also creates a natural hedge to currency fluctuations as the purchased mill feed is effectively acquired on a US dollar basis.

Marmato Upper Mine
Key production metrics for the Marmato Upper Mine are outlined below.
Three months ended,
Operating Information
March 31, 2024March 31, 2023
Tonnes of ore processed (t)62,42150,999
Average gold grade processed (g/t)3.272.93
Gold recovery (%)89.0 %91.0 %
Gold produced (ounces)5,8594,390
Gold sold (ounces)5,7564,250

Gold production for Q1 2024 increased by 33% compared to the same period in 2023 to 5,859 ounces, driven by a 22% increase in tonnes processed, a 12% improvement in grade and marginally offset by a 2% decrease in gold recovery rate. The improvement in tonnes processed for the quarter over the same period in 2023 are reflective of a return to normal operations after the national explosives shortage in Colombia, which started in Q4 2022. The explosives shortage resulted in lower mine development, which impacted stope availability and production in the first six months of 2023.
In Q2 2023, the Company entered into an agreement to form a new partnership with the potential to formalize up to 260 artisanal and small-scale miners to deliver high-grade material from Level 16 of the currently operating Marmato Upper Mine. Since commencing operations in Q2 2023, CMPs at Marmato delivered 3,633 tonnes of material at an average gold grade of 6.18 g/t.
As the Company continues to invest in the modernization of the historic Upper Mine, non-sustaining capital investments during Q1 2024 totaled $2.3 million compared to the $0.7 million spent in Q1 2023. To support ongoing operations, sustaining capital spent for Q1 2024 was $0.8 million, compared to $0.5 million spent over the same period in 2023.

Aris Mining has established a strong portfolio of high-quality gold mining assets that combines free cash flow generation from current operations with (i) near-mine exploration programs, (ii) in progress expansion projects, and (iii) attractive large-scale development projects with large mineral resource bases.

Current Operations
For 2024, Aris Mining expects consolidated gold production of 220,000 to 240,000 oz, with in-progress expansion projects to contribute to production growth in 2025 and beyond.
AISC per ounce sold at the Segovia Operations is expected to be between $1,225 and $1,325.
Aris Mining will resume providing cash cost and AISC/oz cost guidance for the Marmato Mine when the Lower Mine achieves commercial production.

During Q1 2024, the Segovia Operations produced 44,909 ounces of gold, with the Marmato Upper Mine contributing 5,859 ounces of gold to bring total gold production for the quarter to 50,768 ounces. Plant throughput at Segovia was marginally reduced in Q1 due planned maintenance with the average gold grade of 9.4 g/t consistent with the Segovia mine plan. Gold production at the Segovia Operations is expected to increase from Q2 to Q4 of 2024 as the mine plan progresses to higher-grade zones. Accordingly, the Company remains on track to deliver full-year 2024 production guidance. Segovia achieved an AISC of $1,434 per ounce sold for Q1 2024, higher than 2024 full-year cost guidance, however, the Company expects AISC to decrease as production ramps up in higher grade areas.

Near-mine Exploration programs
Following our successful 2023 exploration program, our $18.5 million 2024 exploration program at Segovia of 93,300 metres is designed to:
1.Upgrade high-grade inferred to indicated mineral resources adjacent to our active mine workings,
2.Maintain a pipeline of prospective inferred resources, and
3.Support our CMPs.

As of the end of April 2024, approximately 39,500 m of drilling had been completed, representing 42% of the planned metres for 2024. As such, Aris Mining is on track to complete the planned 2024 drilling program. High grade intercepts have been drilled in the La Grancolombia vein at Carla, the 450 and Manzanillo veins at El Silencio, and the Chumeca, Sandra K Techo, and the 6640 veins at Sandra K.

In progress Expansion Projects
Segovia Operations - Processing plant expansion
The expansion to 3,000 tpd is progressing on schedule for completion in early 2025. The gold production rate of 200-220 koz in 2024 is expected to gradually increase to over 300 kozs as the new plant capacity is used by (i) increasing our mining rates and (ii) providing more processing solutions for CMPs.
Marmato Lower Mine Expansion Project
Construction commenced in September 2023, with approximately $140 to $150 million of expenditures expected during 2024 which represents approximately 50% of the total construction budget of $280 million. The new Lower Mine will access wider porphyry mineralization and increase total production to 162,000 gold ounces per year with a 20-year mine life2.

Additional Large-Scale Development Projects
Proyecto Soto Norte
In 2024, Aris Mining continues to advance the Soto Norte project, and is focused on lowering construction and operating risks, and introducing more practical design criteria.
Toroparu Project
In 2024, Aris Mining will continue to advance the project, specifically focused on optimizing road access routes and other site infrastructure.

Revenue increased by 11% for Q1 2024 over the same periods in 2023. For Q1 2024, gold ounces sold increased by 4% to 51,044 and the average realized gold price per ounce increased by 10% to $2,061, compared to the 49,158 ounces sold at an average realized gold price per ounce of $1,869 in Q1 2023.
The cost of sales for Q1 2024 increased by 33% over the same period in 2023. Compared to the same period in 2023, operating costs for Q1 2024 were negatively impacted by a combination of the high inflationary environment in Colombia and the strengthening COP. Inflation in Colombia remained elevated well above the Colombian Central Bank's target rate of 3% during 2023 and up to the end of Q1 2024, peaking in April 2023 at 13% and retreating to 7% by March 2024. The COP strengthened by 17% against the US dollar from USD1:COP4,627 on March 31, 2023 to USD1:COP3,842 on March 31, 2024, resulting in higher US dollar equivalent costs for locally sourced COP-denominated goods and services
Interest and accretion charges for Q1 2024 related primarily to interest expense for the Senior Notes (as defined herein), fees associated with financings and accretion of provisions. Interest and accretion charges decreased to $6.8 million in Q1 2024 over the $8.9 million recorded in same period in 2023. The interest charges recorded in Q1 2023 included amounts related to the note payable to MDC Industry Holding Company LLC (Mubadala) for the 20% interest acquired in the Soto Norte Project, which amounted to $51.5 million (inclusive of accrued interest) at December 31, 2022. The note payable was settled at the end of the first quarter of 2023.
The foreign exchange loss recorded in Q1 2023 was largely as a result of the appreciation of the COP against the US dollar in the first quarter of 2023, which strengthened from USD1:COP4,810 on December 31, 2022 to USD1:COP4,627 on March 31, 2023. The modest gain recorded in Q1 2024 is reflective of the exchange rate remaining relatively flat

during the first quarter of 2024, with the COP depreciating marginally from USD1:COP3,822 on December 31, 2023 to USD1:COP3,842 on March 31, 2024.

The Company has a number of financial instruments which incur changes in fair value from quarter to quarter and are recognized at fair value through profit and loss. In Q1 2024, the Company recorded a net loss on financial instruments of $3.7 million compared with a net loss on financial instruments of $11.8 million in the same period in 2023.

Liquidity and capital resources
Aris Mining's objective when managing liquidity and capital resources is to safeguard the Company's ability to support normal operating requirements on an ongoing basis, continue the development and exploration of its mineral properties and support the advancement of our expansions and large-scale development projects.
Aris Mining had a working capital surplus of $121.4 million (being current assets less current liabilities) at March 31, 2024 (December 31, 2023: $143.9 million) and sufficient cash and cash equivalents to fund its current operating and administration costs. Aris Mining currently generates sufficient cash flow from operations at the Segovia Operations to sustain ongoing operations. The Company is, however, in a growth phase as it progresses its expansion projects, including the ramp up of the Lower Mine project, various optimization and exploration activities continue at the Segovia Operations, studies and development plan definition continue at Toroparu and investments in the Soto Norte Project continue. The Company expects this phase of growth to continue and should further funding be required, an appropriate mix of debt and equity would be considered.

Management's Discussion and Analysis
Three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023
arisheaderlogo.jpg

Working capital requirements of the Company are met through the cash flow generated by ongoing operations, with the surplus cash flow reinvested into expansionary capital projects. Key components of Aris Mining’s operating working capital at March 31, 2024 include:
Cash and cash equivalents of $147.5 million, representing a 24% decrease from the $194.6 million at the end of 2023.
Current portion of long-term debt of $31.3 million, reflects a decrease of $5.5 million from the $36.8 million of long-term debt at the end of 2023, representing principal and interest repayments on the $300 million Senior Notes and Gold Notes.
Income tax payable of $10.4 million, representing an increase from $6.3 million payable at the end of 2023, largely as a result of the additional income tax expense of $9.4 million recorded in the three months ending March 31, 2024.
Accounts receivable of $58.4 million, which increased by 18% from $49.3 million at the end of 2023, mostly related to the build-up of VAT receivables during Q1 2024 in accordance with the Colombian Tax Authorities practice of settling VAT refunds related to the preceding year in the second quarter of the current year.
Inventories of $41.2 million, which increased from $38.9 million at the end of 2023, driven primarily by the timing of production consumables delivered to both mining operations at the end of March 2024.
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities of $58.7 million, which decreased from $69.3 million at the end of 2023 as a result of the timing of supply deliveries around year-end, as well as the timing of payments to larger suppliers.
Other changes in working capital from normal operating activities included an increase in prepaid expenses and deposits of $0.4 million and an increase in warrant liabilities of $0.6 million.
The net decrease in cash at March 31, 2024 compared to December 31, 2023 was $47.1 million, and is attributable to the following components of the statement of cash flows during the period:
Aris Mining’s operating outflows before tax payments were $0.8 million (Q1 2023: inflow of $19.8 million); the outflow in Q1 2024 was attributable to changes in non-cash operating working capital items of $29.3 million.
Investing activities resulted in net outflows of $38.7 million (Q1 2023: outflows of $73.3 million), which were primarily driven by $34.8 million for sustaining and non-sustaining capital expenditures (Q1 2023: $19.8 million) and $1.4 million in contributions to investments in associates (Q1 2023: $2.3 million). Q1 2023 outflows included settlement of the $50.0 million note payable to Mubadala relating to the deferred consideration for the 20% interest acquired in the Soto Norte Project.
Financing activities resulted in outflows of $7.3 million (Q1 2023: outflows of $16.6 million), related primarily to the payment of $10.6 million in interest on the $300 million Senior Notes and repayments related to the Gold Notes of $3.7 million, offset by $7.7 million in proceeds from the exercise of stock options and warrants.

Significant Financings
Senior notes

On August 9, 2021, the Company issued $300 million face value of senior unsecured notes (the Senior Notes) for net cash proceeds of $286.0 million after discount and transaction costs. The Senior Notes mature on August 9, 2026. The Senior Notes are denominated in U.S. dollars and bear interest at the rate of 6.875% per annum. Interest is payable in arrears in equal semi-annual installments on February 9 and August 9 of each year.

The Company’s subsidiaries which directly own the Segovia Operations and the Toroparu Project have provided unsecured guarantees for the Senior Notes.

On and after August 9, 2023, the Company may redeem the Senior Notes, in whole or in part, at the relevant redemption price (expressed as a percentage of the principal amount of the Senior Notes) and accrued and unpaid interest on the Senior Notes up to the redemption date. The redemption price for the Senior Notes during the 12-month period beginning on August 9 of each of the following years is: 2023 – 103.438%; 2024 – 101.719%; 2025 and thereafter – 100 %. At March 31, 2024 the liability associated with the Senior notes is $296.1 million.

Gold Notes

The fair value of the Gold Notes was calculated using valuation pricing models as at March 31, 2024. Significant Level 2 inputs used in the valuation model include a credit spread, risk free rates, gold future prices and implied volatility of gold prices. At March 31, 2024 the liability associated with the Gold Notes is $63.2 million.

Convertible Debentures

As at March 31, 2024, a total of C$18.0 million in aggregate principal amount of convertible unsecured subordinated debentures (Convertible Debentures) were issued and outstanding. The Convertible Debentures are a financial liability and have been designated at FVTPL. At March 31, 2024, the fair value of the Convertible Debentures has been determined using the binomial pricing model and Level 2 inputs, including share price volatility, risk free interest rate and credit spread. At March 31, 2024, the fair value of the Convertible Debentures was $13.3 million. Subsequent to March 31, 2024, the convertible debentures matured on April 5, 2024 and C$16.2 million of the principle amount of the debentures were converted, resulting in the issuance of 3,410,526 common shares and repayment of the balance of the outstanding principle in the amount of C$1.8 million.

WPMI stream on Marmato Mine

The Company has a precious metals purchase agreement (PMPA) with WPMI (the Marmato Mine PMPA). Under the arrangement, WPMI will provide an aggregate funding amount to $175 million, of which $53 million had been received as of March 31, 2024, with the balance ($122 million) receivable during the construction and development of the Marmato Lower Mine.

Pursuant to the terms of the Marmato Mine PMPA, WPMI will purchase 10.5% of gold produced from the Marmato Mine until 310,000 ounces of gold have been delivered, after which the purchased volume reduces to 5.25% of gold produced. WPMI will also purchase 100% of silver produced from the Marmato Mine until 2.15 million ounces of silver have been delivered, after which the purchased volume reduces to 50% of silver produced. WPMI will make payments upon delivery equal to 18% of the spot gold and silver prices until the uncredited portion of the upfront payment is reduced to zero, and will make payments upon delivery equal to 22% of the spot gold and silver prices thereafter.

The Company and its subsidiaries have provided security in favour of WPMI in respect of their obligations under the Marmato Mine PMPA, including a first ranking general security agreement over substantially all properties and assets of Aris Holdings and its subsidiaries, security over the mining rights comprising the Marmato Mine, and a first ranking share pledge over the shares of each of the subsidiaries of Aris Holdings.

The contract will be settled by Marmato delivering precious metal credits to WPMI. The Company recorded the deposit received as deferred revenue and recognizes amounts in revenue as gold and silver are delivered under the Marmato Mine PMPA.

WPMI stream on Toroparu Project

The Company is party to a PMPA with WPMI with respect to the Toroparu Project (Toroparu Project PMPA). Under the terms of the Toroparu Project PMPA, WPMI will purchase 10% of the gold and 50% of the silver production in the Toroparu Project in exchange for up-front cash deposits totaling $153.5 million.

As of March 31, 2024, the Company has received an initial deposit of $15.5 million, with the remaining $138.0 million subject to WPMI’s election to proceed following receipt of a final feasibility study for the Toroparu Project, environmental study and impact assessment and other project related documents. If WPMI elects not to proceed with the remaining stream financing of $138.0 million, WPMI will be entitled to either (i) a refund from Aris Mining of $13.5 million of the $15.5 million already paid and termination of the Toroparu Project PMPA or (ii) a reduction of the gold stream percentage from 10% to 0.909% and the silver stream percentage from 50% to nil.

In addition to the up-front cash deposits mentioned above, WPMI will make ongoing payments to the Company once the Toroparu Project is in operation as follows:

Gold: the lesser of the market price and $400 per payable ounce of gold delivered over the life of the Toroparu Project, subject to a 1% annual increase starting after the third year of production.
Silver: the lesser of the market price and $3.90 per payable ounce of silver delivered over the life of the Toroparu Project, subject to a 1% annual increase starting after the fourth year of production.

Non-IFRS Measures
Aris Mining has presented certain non-IFRS financial measures and non-IFRS ratios in this document. The Company believes these measures and ratios, while not a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS, provide investors an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to other issuers.

Total cash costs
Total cash costs and total cash costs per oz sold are a non-IFRS financial measure and a non-IFRS ratio, respectively, and are common financial performance measures in the gold mining industry; however, they have no standard meaning under IFRS. Total cash costs per oz sold are calculated by dividing total cash costs by volume of gold ounces sold. Aris Mining believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS such as cost of sales, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Company's performance and ability to generate operating income and cash flow from its mining operations. Management uses this metric as an important tool to monitor operating costs. Adoption of the World Gold Standard methodology is voluntary and other companies may quantify this measure differently because of different underlying principles and policies applied.

All-in sustaining costs
AISC and AISC ($ per oz sold) are a non-IFRS financial measure and a non-IFRS ratio, respectively, and are common financial performance measures in the gold mining industry; however, they have no standard meaning under IFRS. AISC ($ per oz sold) is calculated by dividing AISC by volume of gold ounces sold. The methodology for calculating AISC was developed internally and is calculated below, and readers should be aware that this measure does not have a standardized meaning. This non‐IFRS measure provides investors with transparency to the total period‐attributable AISC of producing an ounce of gold and may aid in the comparison with other gold mining peers. Management uses this metric as an important tool to monitor operating costs. Accordingly, it is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.

Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share
Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share (basic) are a non-IFRS financial measure and non-IFRS ratios, respectively, and are common financial performance measures in the gold mining industry; however, they have no standard meaning under IFRS. Adjusted net earnings per share (basic) are calculated by dividing adjusted net earnings by the number of shares outstanding on a basic basis, respectively.
Adjusted net earnings and adjusted net earnings per share (basic) are used by management and investors to measure the underlying operating performance of the Company. Presenting these measures from period to period helps management and investors evaluate earnings trends more readily in comparison with results from prior periods.
Adjusted net earnings is defined as net income adjusted to exclude specific items that are significant but not reflective of the underlying operating performance of the Company, such as: share-based payments, change in fair value of financial instruments, foreign exchange gains and losses, foreign exchange gains, income and losses from equity accounting in investees, and other non-recurring items. Adjusted net earnings per share amounts are calculated using the weighted average number of shares outstanding on a basic basis as determined under IFRS. In the table below the Company has provided the reconciliation of adjusted net earnings to the most directly comparable financial measure disclosed in the Interim Financial Statements.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) and Adjusted EBITDA

EBITDA and Adjusted EBITDA are non-IFRS financial measures and are common financial performance measures in the gold mining industry; however, they have no standard meaning under IFRS. EBITDA represents earnings before interest (including non-cash accretion of financial obligations and lease obligations), income taxes and depreciation, depletion and amortization.
EBITDA is then adjusted to exclude specific items that are significant but not reflective of the underlying operating performance of the Company, such as: share-based payments, change in fair value of financial instruments, foreign exchange gains and losses, income and losses from equity accounting in investees, and losses on deferred and current income taxes, and other non-recurring items (Adjusted EBITDA).

Significant accounting judgements, estimates and assumptions

Judgments, estimates and assumptions are continually evaluated and are based on management’s experience and other factors, including expectations of future events that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with IFRS requires management to use judgment in applying its accounting policies and estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and related notes to the financial statements. Judgments and estimates are continuously evaluated and are based on management’s best knowledge of the relevant facts and circumstances, having regard to prior experience, but actual results may differ significantly from the amounts included in the financial statements.

a)Significant judgments in the application of accounting policies

Areas of judgment that have the most significant effect on the amounts recognized in the financial statements are as follows:

Exploration and evaluation assets

Management is required to apply judgment in determining whether technical feasibility and commercial viability can be demonstrated for mineral properties. The technical feasibility and commercial viability is based on management’s evaluation of the geological properties of a mineral deposit based on information obtained through evaluation activities, including metallurgical testing, resource and reserve estimates and economic assessment of whether the mineral deposit can be mined economically. Once technical feasibility and commercial viability of a mineral property can be demonstrated, exploration costs will be assessed for impairment and reclassified to development projects within mineral properties.

Management's Discussion and Analysis
Three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023
arisheaderlogo.jpg

b)Significant accounting estimates and assumptions

The areas which require management to make significant estimates and assumptions in determining carrying values include:

Mineral reserves and resources

The Company’s mineral reserves and resources are estimated based on information compiled by the Company’s qualified persons. Mineral reserves and resources are used in the calculation of amortization and depletion, for the purpose of calculating any impairment charges, and for forecasting the timing of the payment of shutdown, restoration, and clean-up costs.

In assessing the life of a mine for accounting purposes, mineral reserves and resources are only taken into account where there is a high degree of confidence of economic extraction. There are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimating mineral reserves and resources, and assumptions that are valid at the time of estimation may change significantly when new information becomes available. Mineral reserves and resource estimates may vary as a result of changes in the price of gold, production costs and with additional knowledge of the mineral deposits and mining conditions. Changes in the measured, indicated and inferred mineral resource estimates may impact the carrying value of property, plant and equipment, reclamation and remediation obligations, recognition of deferred tax amounts and depreciation, depletion and amortization.

The mineral properties balance is amortized using the units-of-production method over the expected operating life of the mine based on estimated recoverable ounces of gold, which are the prime determinants of the life of a mine. Estimated recoverable ounces are based on proven and probable reserves and estimates mineable mineral resource balances. Changes in these estimates will result in changes to the amortization charges over the remaining life of the operation. A change in reserves and resources would change amortization expense, and this could have a material impact on the operating results.

Depreciation

Significant judgment is involved in the determination of useful lives and residual values for the computation of depreciation and no assurance can be given that actual useful lives and residual values will not differ significantly from current assumptions.

Indicators of Impairment

The carrying amounts of property, plant and equipment, E&E assets, development assets and operating assets are assessed for any impairment indicators such as events or changes in circumstances which indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable. If there are indicators of impairment, an exercise is undertaken to determine whether the carrying amounts are in excess of their recoverable amount.

The Company considers both internal and external sources of information in assessing whether there are any indications that long-lived assets are impaired. External sources of information the Company considers include changes in the market, economic and legal environment in which the Company operates that are not within its control and affect the recoverable amount of its long-lived assets. Internal sources of information the Company considers include the manner in which property, plant and equipment are being used or are expected to be used, and in respect of long-lived assets, the right to explore in the specific area has or will expire in the future and is not expected to be renewed, substantive expenditures are neither budgeted or planned, exploration has not led to the discovery of commercially viable quantities of mineral resources or sufficient data exists that although development of a specific area is likely to proceed, the carrying amount of the assets is unlikely to be recovered.

If any such indication exists, the Company estimates the recoverable amount of the asset to determine the extent of the impairment. Where it is not possible to estimate the recoverable amount of an individual asset, an estimate of the recoverable amount of the cash generating unit to which the asset belongs is used. The recoverable amount is the higher of fair value less costs of disposal and value in use. In assessing value in use, the estimated future cash flows are discounted to their present value using a pre‐tax discount rate that reflects current market assessments of the time value of money and the risks specific to the asset. If it is estimated that the recoverable amount of an asset is less than its carrying amount, impairment loss is recognized in profit or loss for the period. Where an impairment loss subsequently reverses, the carrying amount of the asset (or cash generating unit) is increased to the revised estimate of its recoverable amount, but to an amount that does not exceed the carrying amount that would have been determined had no impairment loss been recognized for the asset (or cash generating unit) in prior years. Reversals of impairment are recognized immediately in profit or loss.

Impairment

Value in use is determined based on discounted cash flow models taking into consideration estimates of the quantities of the reserves and mineral resources, future production levels, future gold and silver prices, and future cash costs of production, capital expenditure, shutdown, restoration and environmental clean-up, excluding future expansions or development projects. Assumptions used are specific to the Company and the discount rate applied in the value in use test is based on the Company’s estimated pre-tax weighted average cost of capital with appropriate adjustment for the risks associated with the relevant cash flows, to the extent that such risks are not reflected in the forecasted cash flows.

When evaluating fair value less costs of disposal, fair value is determined based on the amount that could be obtained in an arm’s length transaction and generally uses a discounted cash flow model based on the present value of estimated future cash flows, including future expansions or development projects. In a fair value less costs of disposal analysis the assumptions used are those that a market participant would be expected to apply. Where a discounted cash flow model is not applicable in the valuation of the asset (for exploration projects), the fair value less cost of disposal is estimated using the market multiples approach based on comparable public companies and transactions in similar jurisdictions.

Provision for decommissioning

The Company assesses its provision for decommissioning when new material information becomes available. Mining and exploration activities are subject to various laws and regulations governing the protection of the environment. In general, these laws and regulations are continually changing, and the Company has made, and intends to make in the future, expenditures to comply with such laws and regulations.
Accounting for reclamation and remediation obligations requires management to make estimates of the future costs the Company will incur to complete the decommissioning work required to comply with existing laws and regulations at each mining operation. Actual costs incurred may differ from those amounts estimated. Future changes to environmental laws and regulations could also change the extent of reclamation and remediation work required to be performed by the Company. Changes in future costs could materially impact the amounts charged to operations for such obligations and to mineral properties. The provision represents management’s best estimate of the present value of the future decommissioning obligation. Actual future expenditures may differ from the amounts currently provided.

Fair values of financial liabilities

The Gold Notes and warrants are recorded at fair value through profit and loss (FVTPL). Fair values of Gold Notes have been determined based on a valuation methodology that captures all the features in a set of partial differential equations that are then solved numerically to arrive at the value of these financial instruments. The fair value estimates are based on numerous assumptions including, but not limited to, commodity prices, time value, volatility factors, risk-free rates and credit spreads. The fair value estimates may differ from actual fair values and these differences may be significant and could have a material impact on the Company’s financial position and results of operations. Fair values of listed warrants have been determined based on a Black-Scholes model using quoted market prices in active markets of the underlying securities. Fair values of unlisted warrants have been determined using a liquidity discount from the Black-Scholes value of the listed warrants, which is consistent with the discount that the market has applied for trading prices in comparison to the Black-Scholes valuation of the listed warrants.

Deferred revenue

Judgment was required in determining the accounting for the PMPA between Aris Holdings, Aris Mining, and WPMI which has been reported as deferred revenue.

Streaming arrangements are accounted for as contract liabilities (deferred revenue) in accordance with IFRS 15. These contracts are not financial instruments because they will be satisfied through the delivery of non-financial items (i.e. delivery of gold and silver ounces), rather than cash or financial assets. Under the Marmato PMPA (see Note 12 of the Financial Statements), Aris Holdings is required to satisfy the performance obligations through the delivery of gold and silver, and revenue will be recognized over the duration of the contract as Aris Holdings satisfies its obligation to deliver gold and silver ounces.

                                                Page | 23

Management's Discussion and Analysis
Three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023
arisheaderlogo.jpg

The deferred revenue will be recognized as revenue in profit or loss proportionally based on the metal ounces delivered in relation to the expected total metal ounces to be delivered over the life of the mine. Each period management estimates the cumulative amount of the deferred revenue obligation that has been satisfied and, therefore, recognized as revenue. Any changes in the estimates are accounted for as a cumulative catch-up in the year that the estimates above change.

Key inputs into the estimate of the amount of deferred revenue that should be recognized are as follows:
Valuation InputsDescription
Financing Rate
IFRS 15 requires the Company to recognize a notional financing charge due to the significant time delay between receiving the upfront streaming payment and satisfying the related performance obligations.
Long-term commodities price curvesEstimates of the long-term commodities prices are estimated in order to calculate the expected revenue value per ounce to be recognized from deferred revenue for each delivery to WPMI.
Life of Mine ProductionLife of mine production is estimated giving consideration to IFRS 15 requirements constraining estimates of variable consideration and therefore is based on the approved life of mine and the portion of mineral resources anticipated to be converted to mineral reserves and mined.
Timing of construction milestonesThe expected timing for when the Company will achieve the construction milestone requirements for the additional funding from WPMI have been estimated based on the Marmato prefeasibility study.

Financial Instruments and Financial Risk Management

The nature of the acquisition, exploration, development and operation of gold properties exposes the Company to risks associated with fluctuations in commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates and credit risk. The Company may at times enter into risk management contracts to mitigate these risks. It is the Company’s policy that no speculative trading in derivatives shall be undertaken.

a)Financial instrument risk

Financial instruments measured at fair value are classified into one of three levels in the fair value hierarchy according to the relative reliability of the inputs used to estimate the fair values. The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are:

Level 1 – unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2 – inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability either directly or indirectly; and
Level 3 – inputs that are not based on observable market data.

The fair values of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents, cash in trust, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their carrying values due to their short-term nature.

The Senior Notes are recognized at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method. An observable fair value of the Company’s Senior Notes have been assessed using the trading value of the bonds on the Singapore exchange which indicate a fair market value of $270.8 million.

Financial liabilities measured at FVTPL on a recurring basis include the warrant derivative liabilities, the DSU payable, PSU payable, the Convertible Debenture and Gold Notes which are measured at their fair value at the end of each reporting period. The levels in the fair value hierarchy into which the Company’s financial assets and liabilities are recognized in the statements of financial position at fair value are categorized as follows:

March 31, 2024December 31, 2023
Level 1Level 2Level 1Level 2
Gold Notes$ $63,170 $— $63,310 
Warrant liabilities25,468 514 26,053 553 
DSU and PSU liabilities1,863 3,167 1,903 2,804 
Investments and other assets5,437 7,400 4,254 5,505 
Convertible Debentures 13,307 — 13,913 
Total$32,768 $87,558 $32,210 $86,085 

At March 31, 2024, there were no financial assets and liabilities measured and recognized at fair value on a non-recurring basis. There were no transfers between Level 1 and Level 2, and no financial assets or liabilities measured and recognized at fair value that would be categorized as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy during the period.

b)Credit risk
March 31,December 31,
20242023
Trade$3,009$3,505
VAT receivable49,03440,045
Income tax receivable5,1884,503
Other, net of allowance for doubtful accounts1,2961,386
Total$58,527$49,439

The exposure to credit risk arises through the failure of a third party to meet its contractual obligations to the Company. The Company’s exposure to credit risk primarily arises from its cash balances (which are held with highly rated Canadian, Colombian and other international financial institutions) and accounts receivable. The timing of collection of the VAT recoverable is in accordance with Government of Colombia’s bi-monthly filing process. The timing of collection of HST recoverable is in accordance with Government of Canada quarterly filing process. As at March 31, 2024 the Company expects to recover the outstanding amount of current VAT and HST receivable in the next 12 months.

Credit risk associated with trade accounts receivable arises from the Company’s delivery of its production to international customers from whom it receives 97% - 99.5% of the sales proceeds in the case of gold and silver, and 90% of sales proceeds in the case of concentrates, shortly after delivery of its production to an agreed upon transfer point in Colombia. The balance is received within a short settlement period thereafter once final metal content has been agreed between the Company and the customer.

c)Foreign currency risk

The Company is exposed to foreign currency fluctuations. Such exposure arises primarily from:

Translation of subsidiaries that have a functional currency, such as COP, which differ from the USD functional currency of the Company. The impact of such exposure is recorded through other comprehensive income (loss).
Translation of monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies, such as the Canadian dollar (C$) and Guyanese dollar (GYD). The impact of such exposure is recorded in the consolidated statement of income (loss).

The Company monitors its exposure to foreign currency risks arising from foreign currency balances and transactions. To reduce its foreign currency exposure associated with these balances and transactions, the Company may enter foreign currency derivatives to manage such risks. In 2024 and 2023, the Company did not utilize derivative financial instruments to manage this risk.

The following table summarizes the Company’s current net financial assets and liabilities denominated in Canadian dollars, Colombian pesos and Guyanese dollars (in US dollar equivalents) as of March 31, 2024 and December 31, 2023, as well as the effect on earnings and other comprehensive earnings after-tax of a 10% appreciation or depreciation in the foreign currencies against the US dollar on the financial and non-financial assets and liabilities of the Company, if all other variables remain constant:

Colombian Peso (COP)12,1181,10111,3011,027
Guyanese Dollar (GYD)475431009

d)Price risk

Price risk is the risk that the fair value or future cash flows of the Company’s financial instruments will fluctuate because of changes in market prices. Gold and silver prices can be subject to volatile price movements, which can be material and can occur over short periods of time and are affected by numerous factors, all of which are beyond the Company’s control. The Company may enter commodity hedging contracts from time to time to reduce its exposure to fluctuations in spot commodity prices.

The Company is required under the covenants of the Gold Notes to use commercially reasonable efforts to put in place commodity hedging contracts (put options) on a rolling four-quarters basis to establish a minimum selling price of $1,400 per ounce for the physical gold being accumulated in the Gold Escrow Account. Gold being accumulated in the Gold Escrow Account will be sold to meet the Company’s financial obligations for the quarterly Amortizing Payments
                                                Page | 25

of the Gold Notes. Under the terms of the agreement, such hedging will not be required if one of the following conditions is met:
-the Company determines that any such hedging contracts are not obtainable on commercially reasonable terms; or
-the failure to obtain any such hedging contracts would not reasonably be expected to materially adversely impact the ability of the Company to satisfy its obligations to make the quarterly Amortizing Payments.

As at March 31, 2024, the Company had no outstanding commodity hedging contracts in place.

Basis for preparation and accounting policies
The Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with IFRS as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB). Details of the material accounting policies for significant (or potentially significant) areas that have had an impact (or may have an impact in future periods) on the Company’s financial statements are disclosed in note 3 of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2023 and 2022. The impact of future accounting changes is disclosed in note 3 to the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

New accounting standards issued

IAS 1 – Presentation of Financial Statements

The IASB issued an amendment to IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements that clarifies that the classification of liabilities as current or non-current depends on the rights existing at the end of the reporting period as opposed to the expectations of exercising the right for settlement of the liability. The amendments were effective January 1, 2024 and have been applied retrospectively. Under existing IAS 1 requirements, companies classify a liability as current when they do not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for at least 12 months after the reporting date. The IASB has removed the requirement for a right to be unconditional and instead now requires that a right to defer settlement must exist at the reporting date and have substance. The amendments therefore resulted in a change in the classification of liabilities that can be settled in an entity's own shares. Previously, counterparty conversion options were not considered when classifying the related liabilities as current or non-current. Subsequent to the application of the amendments,, when a liability includes a counterparty conversion option that may be settled by a transfer of an entity's own shares, the Company takes into account the conversion option in classifying the liability as current or non-current. The Company's convertible debentures and warrant liabilities were impacted by the amendments.

Previously, the Company's convertible debentures were recorded as long-term debt and were classified as current when the instrument was maturing within 12 months after the reporting period. However, given the holders of the debenture have the option from issuance to maturity to convert the principal into common shares of the Company, the related liability is classified as current as at January 1, 2023 under the revised policy because the conversion option can be exercised by the holders within 12 months after the reporting period. Similarly, the Company's warrant liabilities were previously classified as non-current and warrants expiring within 12 months after the reporting period were classified as current. Under the revised policy, the warrant liabilities are classified as current as at January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023 because the warrants can be exercised by the holders at any time subsequent to issuance.

As a result of the adoption of the IAS 1 amendments, the statement of financial position as at January 1, 2023 has been restated, with a reclassification of $13.2 million from non-current portion of long-term debt to current portion of long-term debt, and a reclassification of $21.8 million from non-current portion of warrant liabilities to current portion of warrant liabilities. The statement of financial position as at December 31, 2023 has also been restated, with a reclassification of $11.0 million from non-current portion of warrant liabilities to current portion of warrant liabilities.

There was no impact on the statement of income (loss), statement of other comprehensive income (loss), statement of equity, and statement of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

Risks and Uncertainties
Exploration, development and mining of precious metals involves numerous inherent risks. As such, Aris Mining is subject to financial, operational and political risks that could have a significant impact on its profitability and levels of operating cash flows. Although Aris Mining assesses and minimizes these risks by applying high operating standards, including careful management and planning of its facilities, hiring qualified personnel and developing their skills through training and development programs, these risks cannot be eliminated.

Readers are encouraged to read and consider the risk factors which are more specifically described under the caption "Risk Factors" in the Company's AIF for the year ended December 31, 2023 dated as of March 6, 2024, which is available on www.aris-mining.com, under the Company's profile on SEDAR+ at www.sedarplus.ca and in its filings with the SEC at www.sec.gov.

If any of these risks materialize into actual events or circumstances or other possible additional risks and uncertainties of which the Company is currently aware or which it considers to be material in relation to the Company's business actually occur, the Company's assets, liabilities, financial condition, results of operations (including future results of operations), business and business prospects, are likely to be materially and adversely affected. In such circumstances, prices of the Company's securities could decline, and investors could lose all or part of their investment. In addition, such risk factors could cause actual amounts to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements related to the Company.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures and Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting
Internal controls over financial reporting
Disclosure controls and procedures have been designed to provide reasonable assurance that all material information required to be disclosed by the Company is accumulated and communicated to senior management as appropriate and recorded, processed, summarized and reported to allow timely decisions with respect to required disclosure, including in its annual filings, interim filings or other reports filed or submitted by it under securities legislation.

The Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, are responsible for establishing adequate internal controls over financial reporting.

Changes in internal controls
During the three months ended March 31, 2024, there were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting that materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company's internal controls over financial reporting.

Limitations of controls and procedures
The Company's management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, believe that any disclosure controls and procedures or internal controls over financial reporting, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, they cannot provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been prevented or detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by unauthorized override of the control. The design of any systems of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Accordingly, because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Qualified Person and Technical Information
Pamela De Mark, P.Geo., Senior Vice President Geology and Exploration of Aris Mining, is a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101), and has reviewed and approved the technical information contained in this Management's Discussion and Analysis.
Measured and indicated mineral resources are inclusive of mineral reserves. Mineral resources and mineral reserves are as defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy, and Petroleum's 2014 Definition Standards for Mineral Resources & Mineral Reserves. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and have no demonstrated economic viability. Inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There are no known legal, political, environmental, or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the mineral resources.
Unless otherwise indicated, the scientific disclosure and technical information included in this MD&A is based upon information included in NI 43-101 compliant technical reports entitled:
1."Technical Report for the Marmato Gold Mine, Caldas Department, Colombia, Pre-Feasibility Study of the Lower Mine Expansion Project" dated November 23, 2022 with an effective date of September 30, 2022 (the “2022 Marmato Pre-Feasibility Study).

3.    Summary of Material Accounting Policies (cont.)
New accounting standards issued

IAS 1 – Presentation of Financial Statements

The IASB issued an amendment to IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements that clarifies that the classification of liabilities as current or non-current depends on the rights existing at the end of the reporting period as opposed to the expectations of exercising the right for settlement of the liability. The amendments were effective January 1, 2024 and have been applied retrospectively. Under existing IAS 1 requirements, companies classify a liability as current when they do not have an unconditional right to defer settlement for at least 12 months after the reporting date. The IASB has removed the requirement for a right to be unconditional and instead now requires that a right to defer settlement must exist at the reporting date and have substance. The amendments therefore resulted in a change in the classification of liabilities that can be settled in an entity's own shares. Previously, counterparty conversion options were not considered when classifying the related liabilities as current or non-current. Subsequent to the application of the amendments, when a liability includes a counterparty conversion option that may be settled by a transfer of an entity's own shares, the Company takes into account the conversion option in classifying the liability as current or non-current. The Company's convertible debentures and warrant liabilities were impacted by the amendments.

Previously, the Company's convertible debentures were recorded as long-term debt and were classified as current when the instrument was maturing within 12 months after the reporting period. However, given the holders of the debenture have the option from issuance to maturity to convert the principal into common shares of the Company, the related liability is classified as current as at January 1, 2023 under the revised policy because the conversion option can be exercised by the holders within 12 months after the reporting period. Similarly, the Company's warrant liabilities were previously classified as non-current and warrants expiring within 12 months after the reporting period were classified as current. Under the revised policy, the warrant liabilities are classified as current as at January 1, 2023 and December 31, 2023 because the warrants can be exercised by the holders at any time subsequent to issuance.

As a result of the adoption of the IAS 1 amendments, the statement of financial position as at January 1, 2023 has been restated, with a reclassification of $13.2 million from non-current portion of long-term debt to current portion of long-term debt, and a reclassification of $21.8 million from non-current portion of warrant liabilities to current portion of warrant liabilities. The statement of financial position as at December 31, 2023 has also been restated, with a reclassification of $11.0 million from non-current portion of warrant liabilities to current portion of warrant liabilities.

There was no impact on the statement of income (loss), statement of other comprehensive income (loss), statement of equity, and statement of cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2023.

IFRS 18 – Presentation and Disclosure in Financial Statements

The IASB issued IFRS 18, Presentation and Disclosure in Financial Statements to improve reporting of financial performance. IFRS 18 replaces IAS 1, Presentation of Financial Statements.

IFRS 18 applies for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2027. Earlier application is permitted. The extent of the impact of adoption of this standard is currently under evaluation.

The Company has a 20% interest in the Soto Norte gold project, with MDC Industry Holding Company LLC (“Mubadala”) holding the
remaining 80% interest. The Company is the operator of the joint venture company, and the joint venture partners will share project
costs on a pro-rata ownership basis (“Soto Norte Project”).

$109,373 $108,527 

b)Denarius
During the year ended December 31, 2023, Denarius Metals Corp. (“Denarius”) completed the following equity offerings:
a rights offering whereby the Company participated for less than its pro rata ownership interest and acquired 3,750,000 common shares in Denarius for cash consideration of $1.1 million, decreasing its equity interest in Denarius to approximately 24.9%; and
a private placement in which the Company did not participate, decreasing its equity investment in Denarius to approximately 17.2% as at December 31, 2023.
As a result of the reduced ownership percentage subsequent to the private placement, the Company concluded that it no longer had significant influence in the investee, and therefore, discontinued accounting for the investment using the equity method from April 4, 2023, being the date of the completion of the private placement and began carrying the investment at fair value through profit or loss. The Company recorded a loss on discontinuation of the equity method of $10.0 million and reclassified the fair value of the Denarius investment of $3.5 million to other financial assets. The loss was calculated as the difference between the fair value of Aris Mining’s retained interest and the carrying amount of the investment in Denarius at the date the equity method was discontinued, including a $1.9 million loss previously recognized in other comprehensive income that was reclassified to profit and loss on discontinuation of the equity method.

During the year-ended December 31, 2023, the Company also subscribed for C$5.0 million of Denarius Convertible Debentures ("Denarius Debenture"). The Denarius Debenture is due, in cash, on October 19, 2028 and may be converted at the Company’s sole discretion into common shares of Denarius at a conversion price of C$0.45 per share. The Denarius Debenture will pay interest monthly at a rate of 12.0% per annum and also pay quarterly in cash an amount equal to the Gold Premium (as defined below) multiplied by the principal amount of the Denarius Debenture. The Gold Premium is calculated as the percentage equal to (i) 25% of the amount, if any, by which the London P.M. Fix exceeds $1,800 per ounce, divided by (ii) $1,800. The Company concluded that these debentures are not considered exercisable or convertible as at period-end under the guidance in IAS 28 and therefore, are excluded in assessing significant influence.
The Company’s investment in Denarius is carried at $12.8 million at March 31, 2024. During the three months ended March 31, 2024, the Company recognized a gain of $3.1 million in gain (loss) on financial instruments related to the change in fair value of the investment in the period (year ended December 31, 2023 - $2.7 million).
