Homestake Barrick Option Project

Dakota Gold entered into a three-year option agreement on September 7, 2021, to acquire 4,261 acres of surface rights with attendant facilities and data held by Homestake Mining Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of Barrick. In consideration for the Option, Dakota Gold made a cash payment of $1.3 million and issued 1 million shares of common stock of the Company ("Shares") to Barrick and will make annual Option payments of $300,000 during the Option period. Dakota Gold may exercise the Option on or before September 7, 2024, by assuming all liabilities and bonds currently held by Homestake within the Homestake District. On November 20, 2023 it was announced that the option term was extended from September 7, 2024 to March 7, 2026. In addition, on exercise of the Option, Dakota Gold will issue Barrick 3 million additional shares and grant a 2.5% NSR to Barrick with respect to any gold that may be recovered from the Grizzly Gulch property (the "Grizzly Gulch").

The property is located in and around the City of Lead and lies within the Black Hills Meridian, Township 5 N, Range 3 E, covering portions of Sections 19, 20, 27, 28, 29, 30, 32, 33, and 34, and Township 4 N, Range3 E, covering portions of Sections 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 14, and 15.

Access to the property is gained from multiple public roads and highways including, streets within the City of Lead, paved Highway 85/14A near Central City, US Highway 385 at Pluma, and via Lawrence County maintained Grizzly Gulch, Kirk, and Yellow Creek roads.

The Barrick Option area was previously a part of, or utilized in support of, Homestake Mining Company's historic gold mining operations at Lead. Subdivisions of the property include Sawpit Gulch, Open Cut and Grizzly Gulch areas. As the property was previously disturbed by mining, Dakota Gold believes that potential exists for the Company to repurpose the property and remaining infrastructure for future operations if exploration is successful at Dakota Gold project areas that lie in close proximity. The Grizzly Gulch area of the property holds potential to re-process tailings from milling operations at the Homestake Gold Mine.
