NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

SEPTEMBER 30, 2021

(tabular amounts are in thousands of U.S. dollars, unless otherwise noted)

NOTE 1 NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

McEwen Mining Inc. (the “Company”) was organized under the laws of the State of Colorado on July 24, 1979. The Company is engaged in the exploration, development, production and sale of gold and silver and exploration and development of copper.

The Company operates in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Argentina.  The Company owns a 100% interest in the Gold Bar gold mine in Nevada, the Black Fox gold mine in Ontario, Canada, the El Gallo gold project and the Fenix silver-gold project in Sinaloa, Mexico and a portfolio of exploration properties in Nevada, Canada, Mexico and Argentina. As of September 30, 2021, the Company owns an 82% interest in the Los Azules copper deposit in San Juan, Argentina through its 100% owned subsidiary, Minera Andes Inc. It also owns a 49% interest in Minera Santa Cruz S.A. (“MSC”), owner of the producing San José silver-gold mine in Santa Cruz, Argentina, which is operated by the joint venture majority owner Hochschild Mining plc.

The interim consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and are unaudited. While information and note disclosures normally included in financial statements which are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, the Company believes that the information and disclosures included are adequate and not misleading.

In management’s opinion, the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Loss (“Statement of Operations”) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, the unaudited Consolidated Balance Sheet as at September 30, 2021 and audited Consolidated Balance Sheet as at December 31, 2020, the unaudited Consolidated Statement of Changes in Shareholders’ Equity for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, and the unaudited Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and 2020, contained herein, reflect all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring items, which are necessary for the fair presentation of the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows on a basis consistent with that of the Company’s prior audited consolidated financial statements. However, the results of operations for the interim periods may not be indicative of results to be expected for the full fiscal year. Therefore, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto and the summary of significant accounting policies included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. Except as noted below, there have been no material changes in the footnotes from those accompanying the audited consolidated financial statements contained in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. Inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

NOTE 2 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Risks and Uncertainties

COVID-19

The Company continues to closely monitor and respond, as possible, to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. As the situation continues to rapidly change globally, ensuring the health and safety of the Company’s employees and contractors is one of the Company’s top priorities. Many jurisdictions including the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina have varied but continued restrictions to travel, public gatherings, and certain business operations. Unlike the year 2020, there were no mandated suspensions for the Company’s operations during 2021. In addition, vaccination rates in countries where the Company operates continue to increase.

The Company’s results of operations, financial position, and cash flows were adversely affected in 2020 due to COVID-19. The continuing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows will depend on future developments, including the duration and spread of the outbreak, variants of the COVID-19 virus, the availability and distribution of vaccinations, and government advisories, restrictions, and financial assistance offered. To ensure a safe working environment for the Company’s employees and contractors and to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Company continues to reinforce safety measures at all sites and offices including contact tracing, restricting non-essential travel, and complying with public health orders. The impact of COVID-19 on the global financial markets, the overall economy and the Company are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted. Maintaining normal operating capacity is also dependent on the continued availability of supplies and contractors, which are out of the Company’s control. If the financial markets and/or the overall economy continue to be impacted, the Company’s results of operations, financial position and cash flows may be further affected. As the situation continues to evolve, the Company will continue to monitor market conditions closely and respond accordingly.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2021, the Company raised $12.7 million and $31.5 million through a Canadian Development Expenses (“CDE”) flow-through common share issuance and an equity financing, and raised $20.2 million in Canadian Exploration Expenditures (“CEE”) financings during 2020. In addition, a subsidiary of the Company secured an additional $40.0 million during Q3 2021 for its Los Azules project in Argentina (Note 18). However, a prolonged economic downturn could result in a variety of risks to the business, including impeding access to capital markets when needed on acceptable terms, if at all. The Company has completed various scenario planning analyses to consider the potential impacts of COVID-19 on its business, including volatility in commodity prices, temporary disruptions and/or curtailments of operating activities (voluntary or involuntary). However, there is no assurance that these measures will prevent adverse effects from COVID-19 in the future.

Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements

Income Taxes:  In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12 “Income Taxes (Topic 740).”  ASU 2019-12 simplifies the accounting for income taxes by reducing existing complexity in the accounting standard.  The update to the accounting standard is effective for the Company for the fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The adoption of ASU 2019-12 in 2021 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements and related disclosures.

NOTE 3 OPERATING SEGMENT REPORTING

The Company is a mining and minerals production and exploration company focused on precious metals in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Argentina. The Company’s chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) reviews the operating results, assesses performance and makes decisions about the allocation of resources to these segments at the geographic region level or major mine/project where the economic characteristics of the individual mines or projects within a geographic region are not alike. As a result, these operating segments also represent the Company’s reportable segments for accounting purposes. The Company’s business activities that are not considered operating segments are included in General and Administrative and Other and are provided in this note for reconciliation purposes.

The CODM reviews segment income or loss, defined as gold and silver sales less production costs applicable to sales, depreciation and depletion, advanced projects and exploration costs, for all segments except for the MSC segment, which is evaluated based on the attributable equity income or loss. Gold and silver sales and production costs applicable to sales for the reportable segments are reported net of intercompany transactions.

Capital expenditures include costs capitalized in mineral property interests and plant and equipment in the respective periods.

Significant information relating to the Company’s reportable operating segments for the periods presented is summarized in the tables below:
