Vancouver, B.C. MAG Silver Corp. (TSX / NYSE American: MAG) (“MAG Silver”) is pleased to announce that the US$50 million at-the-market equity program (the “ATM Program”) previously announced (see Press Release June 30, 2020) has been completed. Since June 30, 2020, MAG Silver sold and issued 3,092,783 common shares under the ATM Program at an average price of US$16.16 per share, for gross and net proceeds of US$50 million and US$48.625 million, respectively. There is no further remaining availability under this ATM Program.
Under the ATM Program, MAG Silver was permitted to issue up to an aggregate of US$50 million worth of common shares from treasury, at prevailing market prices to the public through the NYSE American or any other marketplace on which the common shares are listed, quoted or otherwise traded in the United States. The volume and timing of distributions under the ATM Program was determined at MAG Silver’s sole discretion, subject to applicable regulatory limitations.
MAG Silver intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering primarily to fund the completion of construction of the Juanicipio Project, with any remainder to fund further exploration of Juanicipio and other projects, and for working capital and general corporate purposes.

Wainwright & Co., Roth Capital Partners and TD Securities (together, the “Agents”).
