The high number of additions to the MVIS Global Junior Gold Miners Index is the result of a rules change to the index. According to the new index rules, eligibility for index inclusion was extended to companies ranking between 60% and 98% (previously 80% and 98%) of the full market capitalization. Consequently, more companies qualified for the index. Had the rebalancing been implemented on 7 June, the date when weighting cap factors were determined, the market capitalization of the largest index component would have increased from 2.05 billion to 3.24 billion USD. The weighted average market cap of the MVIS Global Junior Gold Miners Index would have been 1.86 billion USD.
A complete list of components and weights is available on www.mvis-indices.com.

The next quarterly review results will be announced on September 8, 2017.
