Hycroft Mining Holding Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Waiver and Amendment to Transition and Succession Agreement and Consulting Agreement dated as of October 6, 2021 (the “Waiver and Amendment”) with Randy Buffington (“Buffington”), the Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company until his resignation from such positions effective July 1, 2020. The Waiver and Amendment amends the Transition and Succession Agreement (the “Transition Agreement”) and the Consulting Agreement each between the Company and Buffington, dated as of July 1, 2020. The Waiver and Amendment also amends the Employee Nondisclosure, Noncompetition, Nonsolicitation and Inventions Agreement with Hycroft Mining Corporation, dated October 19, 2015, (the "ENNNI Agreement"), which ENNNI Agreement was assigned to and assumed by the Company and amended by the Transition Agreement. Copies of the Transition Agreement (including the ENNI Agreement as Exhibit B thereto) and the Consulting Agreement were included as Exhibit 10.1 and Exhibit 10.3, respectively, in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 2, 2020.

The Waiver and Amendment provides that the (i) restrictive covenant of non-competition set forth in Section 8 of the ENNNI Agreement, as such section was amended by Section 7 of the Transition Agreement, will be waived and (ii) remaining unpaid cash payments to Buffington pursuant to the Transition Agreement and Consulting Agreement in the aggregate amount of $662,500 will be terminated, in consideration and exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of up to 275,000 shares of Company common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (the "Common Stock") in a private placement under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), with (i) 137,500 shares of Common Stock issued within two business days following the date of the Waiver and Amendment, and (ii) subject to Buffington’s performance of his obligations pursuant to the Transition Agreement, the Consulting Agreement, and the ENNNI Agreement, each as amended by the Waiver and Amendment, the remaining 137,500 shares of Common Stock to be issued on June 30, 2022.

The foregoing summary of the Waiver and Amendment does not purport to be complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by reference to, the full text of this agreement, a copy of which is attached to this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 10.1.
