About Alacer

Alacer is a leading low-cost gold producer, with an 80% interest in the world-class Copler Gold Mine ("Copler") in Turkey operated by Anagold Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. ("Anagold"), and the remaining 20% owned by Lidya Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. ("Lidya Mining"). The Corporation's primary focus is to leverage its cornerstone Copler Gold Mine and strong balance sheet to maximize portfolio value and free cash flow, minimize project risk, and therefore, create maximum value for shareholders. The Copler Gold Mine is located in east-central Turkey in the Erzincan Province, approximately 1,100 kilometers southeast from Istanbul and 550 kilometers east from Ankara, Turkey's capital city.

The Corporation continues to pursue opportunities to further expand its current operating base to become a sustainable multi-mine producer with a focus on Turkey:

Copler Sulfide Expansion Project (the "Sulfide Project")

The sulfide plant construction is complete and a staged start-up is underway. The Sulfide Project is expected to deliver long-term growth with robust financial returns and adds 20 years of production at Copler. The Sulfide Project will bring Copler's remaining life-of-mine ("LoM") gold production to approximately 4 million ounces at All-in Sustaining Costs averaging $645 per ounce.

Copler Oxide Plant Production

Over the course of 2018, Alacer will process oxide ore from three primary sources: Copler in-pit, Cakmaktepe and blended material comprising limestone rich in-pit oxide material and stockpiled low sulfide, high carbonate ore. To maximize the processing capacity of the oxide plant, the expansion of the existing heap leach pad is being accelerated and is expected to be complete in 2018. In addition, the Corporation continues to evaluate opportunities to further extend oxide production beyond the current reserves with ongoing in-pit exploration, Copler District exploration, and evaluation of options to further increase heap leach capacity.

District & In-Country Exploration Activities

The systematic and focused exploration efforts in the Copler District, as well as in other regions of Turkey, are progressing. The Copler District remains the focus, with the goal of continuing to grow oxide resources that will deliver production utilizing the existing Copler infrastructure. In the other regions of Turkey, targeted exploration work continues, including work on the Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") for the Gediktepe Project.

Alacer is a Canadian corporation incorporated in the Yukon Territory with its primary listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Corporation also has a secondary listing on the Australian Securities Exchange where CHESS Depositary Interests ("CDIs") trade.
