Vancouver, British Columbia, April 25, 2022 – Asante Gold Corporation (CSE:ASE |
FRANKFURT:1A9 | U.S.OTC:ASGOF) (“Asante” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has
entered into a share purchase agreement with Kinross Gold Corporation (“Kinross”) to acquire Kinross’
90% interest in the Chirano Gold Mine (“Chirano”) for a total consideration of US$225 million (the
“Chirano Acquisition”). The Ghanaian government retains a 10% carried interest in Chirano.
The upfront consideration for the Chirano Acquisition will be comprised of US$115 million in cash and
US$50 million in common shares of Asante (“Asante Shares”) based on the 30-day volume-weighted
average price of the Asante Shares prior to closing of the Chirano Acquisition (“Closing”) and provided the
issuance of the Asante S hares will not result in Kinross exceeding a 9.9% share ownership in Asante.
Kinross will also receive a total deferred payment of US$60 million in cash, with 50% payable on the first
anniversary of Closing and the balance payable on the second anniversary of Closing. If the 9.9% share
ownership limit is reached, the remainder of the US$50 million in share consideration will be paid by
increasing the deferred cash payments in equal portions. Kinross has agreed that it will hold its Asante
Shares for at least 12 months following the Closing.

The transaction is expected to be completed on or around May 31, 2022. The Government of Ghana has
issued a Letter of No Objection to the change of control of Chirano and the transaction is not subject to a
financing condition.

Dave Anthony, President and CEO of Asante, stated: “We are excited to add the Chirano operation to our
base of gold production in Ghana. It presents an excellent opportunity for synergy with our other Ghanaian
assets and represents “the next step” for our vision to build a leading gold mining company in Ghana and
West Africa. Asante has deep ties to Ghana and is committed to sharing the benefits of its activities with
the local community and Ghana. Chirano is a well-run operation and our intention is to retain its employees,
to ensure a smooth transition of ownership, with uninterrupted production.”

Douglas MacQuarrie, Non-Executive Chairman of Asante, stated: “The Bibiani and Chirano assets will be
combined under one ownership, to cover an entire district scale gold trend exceeding 53km in length and
with past gold production of more than 8 million ounces. With two modern process plants located 20km
apart, exploration success anywhere along the gold trend can be efficiently accessed. Our recent exploration success at Bibiani-South Russel is indicative of the discovery potential that remains along the trend.”

Canaccord Genuity Corp. and Durose Asset Management Inc. are acting as financial advisors to Asante,
with Bennett Jones LLP acting as legal advisor, for the transaction.
