COMPANY BACKGROUND

Element 29 is a Canadian resource company engaged in the exploration and development of mineral resource properties in Peru. The Company is exploring for copper ("Cu"), molybdenum ("Mo"), gold ("Au"), silver ("Ag"), and other metals including lead ("Pb"), and zinc ("Zn"). At present, none of the Company's mineral properties are at a commercial development or production stage. The Company's objective is to confirm, delineate, and develop the copper mineralization at its Flor de Cobre property ("Candelaria"). At the Elida porphyry copper project, the Company plans to explore and expand on the copper, molybdenum, and silver mineralization intersected in Target 1 (see Elida Copper Project) and drill test the four other porphyry targets located on the project.

The Company also holds two other projects; the Pahuay Copper Project, and the Muñaorjo Copper Project, which are both located in Peru.

The Company was incorporated in British Columbia on August 30, 2017. The Company's corporate headquarters is in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Field operations are conducted out of a local office in Peru. On December 7, 2020, the Company's common shares commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") under the symbol "ECU". On February 4, 2021, the Company's common shares commenced trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange ("FSE") under the trading symbol "2IK". On May 27, 2021, the Company commenced trading on the Over-the-Counter OTCQB Venture Market ("OTCQB") under the symbol "EMTRF".

The Company has three wholly-owned subsidiaries; Candelaria Resources SAC, Elida Resources SAC, and Pahuay Resources SAC, all of which were incorporated under the laws of Peru (the "Subsidiaries").

Element 29 is led by a seasoned team of mining, corporate finance and corporate governance professionals, who have the experience to advance the Company's projects and generate value for Element 29's shareholders.

HIGHLIGHTS

The Company's strategy is to further explore the copper mineralization, and transition through to advanced exploration and engineering studies towards potential development.

Flor de Cobre Copper Project (Peru)

On July 6, and June 1, 2022, the Company announced results from seven drill holes of the 4,500 metre ("m"), twelve- hole drill program. Flor de Cobre drilling highlights included:

  • The twin drill hole program recently completed by Element 29 has demonstrated the reliability of the historical drill hole results such that this historical information can be considered sufficiently accurate to be reliable.
  • Mineralization intersected in the Element 29 core holes verifies the mineralization that was intersected in the historical Rio Amarillo and Phelps Dodge drill holes.

Page 2

Q2 2022 MD&A (expressed in Canadian Dollars, except where otherwise noted)

  • Historical information can be incorporated into a drill hole database used for a mineral resource estimate that meets the current CIM best practice guidelines for mineral resource estimation.

The Company is awaiting results from the last three angled drill holes of the program that tested the primary copper sulphide mineralization potential below the supergene enrichment blanket to depths of more than 500 m.

Elida Copper Project (Peru)

The Company completed its Elida drilling program in December 2021 that consisted of seven diamond drill holes totaling 4,481.4 m to test the Target 1 mineralized zone within the Elida porphyry cluster. Results of the first 2 drill holes were reported on October 18, 2021 and a second batch of 2 drill holes were released on November 15, 2021. The final three drill holes were reported on January 19, 2022.

Corporate

The Company's financial highlights for the quarter included:

  • For the three and six months ended June 30, 2022, the operating loss was $692,062 and $2,388,925, respectively, compared to an operating loss of $760,364 and $1,759,906 in the comparative periods of 2021;
  • For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2022, operating cash outflow before working capital was $646,016 and $1,103,824, respectively, compared to an operating cash outflow before working capital of $670,016 and $1,108,259 in the comparative period of 2021; and
  • As at June 30, 2022, the cash balance was $3,346,126 and the working capital balance was $3,099,196.

2022 OUTLOOK

Flor de Cobre

Company commenced a 3,700 m drill program ("Flor de Cobre Drill Program") at the Flor de Cobre Copper Project as announced on February 3, 2022 and completed 4,500 m of drilling in May 2022. The objectives of the drill program were to verify the historical copper resource estimate of 57.4 million tonnes of 0.67% Cu associated with a supergene enrichment blanket formed on the Candelaria porphyry ("Candelaria") and to explore for primary Cu sulphide mineralization under the enrichment blanket to depths of over 500 m. Historical drilling intersected 272 m of 0.92% Cu starting at 78 m depth, including 116 m of 1.4% Cu as secondary enrichment followed by 156 m of 0.58% Cu as primary sulphides from drill hole K-008. The historical drill holes were completed by Rio Amarillo Mining and Phelps Dodge in 1994 and 1995

Nine historical drill holes were selected for twinning based on cumulative grade times thickness and representing approximately 70% of the total cumulative grade thickness intersected on the property. This would allow Element 29 to use the historical information as part of a drill hole dataset for the estimation of mineral resources that meets the CIM best practice guidelines for mineral resource estimation.

The Company is awaiting results from the last three angled drill holes of the program that tested the primary copper sulphide mineralization potential below the supergene enrichment blanket to depths of more than 500 m.

The Company also continues to progress drill permitting on the Atravesado porphyry target ("Atravesado") in preparation for initial drill-testing of a priority porphyry target supported by coincident outcrop geology, surface geochemistry, and geophysical response.

Elida

The Company completed a drilling program in December 2021 ("Elida Drill Program") consisting of seven diamond drill holes totaling 4,481.4 m to test Zone 1 within the Elida porphyry cluster. Results of the first 2 drill holes were reported on October 18, 2021 and a second batch of 2 drill holes were released on November 15, 2021. The final three drill holes were reported on January 19, 2022. Drilling results will be used to complete an initial resource estimate of Zone 1 in accordance with CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves (2014). In parallel,

Page 3

Q2 2022 MD&A (expressed in Canadian Dollars, except where otherwise noted)

preliminary metallurgical studies have been initiated to examine recovery characteristics of mineralization for use in preliminary economic studies. Exploration planned for later in 2022 will be designed to test the unexplored segments of Zone 1 and initial drill testing of the Zone 2 porphyry centre.

PROJECT DETAILS - PERU

FLOR DE COBRE COPPER PROJECT

The Company owns 100% of the Flor de Cobre Copper Project. In addition, the Company has the option to earn 100% of certain concessions ("Candelaria concessions") from a Peruvian vendor of 127.12 hectares.

The Company can earn 100% interest in the Candelaria concessions at Flor de Cobre by making option payments to the vendor in the total amount of approximately US$5 million (paid - US$1.4 million) over five years between 2020 and 2024. An additional US$6 million payment would be due on completion of a positive detailed feasibility study for the concession area.

The Flor de Cobre Property is in the Southern Peru Copper Belt, which hosts numerous porphyry copper deposits including the Cerro Verde copper-molybdenum mine operated by Freeport-McMoRan; the Cuajone and Toquepala copper-molybdenum mines operated by Southern Copper; and the Quellaveco copper-molybdenum mine operated by Anglo American (Figure 1). Flor de Cobre is 5 kilometres ("km") northwest of the Chapi Mine and 26 km southeast of the Cerro Verde Mine. The property contains the Candelaria historic copper resource first identified in the 1960s and was the site of an historical small-scale copper mining operation since that time.

Flor de Cobre is located 45 km southeast of Arequipa at a modest elevation of ~2,700 m with excellent infrastructure for mine development with respect to roads, power lines and port access (Figure 1 and Figure 2).

The Flor de Cobre property is made up of seven mining concessions and two concession applications totalling 1,927 hectares. Individual concessions are shown in Figure 3.
