COMPANY OVERVIEW

We are a junior gold-silver producer based in Golden, Colorado and we will increase shareholder value through our plans for:

► Sustained profitable production

► Growth: two mines producing in 2022-2023

► Continued exploration success

Golden Minerals holds or control around a dozen precious metals projects in Mexico, Argentina and Nevada (USA). We commenced gold & silver mining operations at our Rodeo open pit mine (Durango State, Mexico) in January 2021. The mine generated $12.3M of net operating margin during 2021. This cash may be used in part to finance a restart of production at the nearby silver/gold Velardeña Properties, where the use of bio-oxidation technology is expected to achieve superior gold recovery from sulfide concentrates that would in turn support sustainable profitability for ten or more years. Additionally, we hold district-scale projects in Salta, Argentina and Chihuahua, Mexico and continue to explore projects that present opportunities for eventual production and economic profitability.

The company is well funded, reporting $12.2M cash on hand as of December 31, 2021.
