Hut 8 optimizes self-mining operations as miners come online at Salt Creek

Greenfield site energized in 78 days, less than three months after breaking ground

Cost to mine a Bitcoin at site expected to be 30% lower than cost at hosted facilities due to favorable energy profile

MIAMI, FL, April 16, 2024Hut 8 Corp. (Nasdaq | TSX: HUT) (“Hut 8” or the “Company”), a leading, vertically integrated operator of large-scale energy infrastructure and one of North America’s largest Bitcoin miners, today announced the energization of one third of its 63 MW site in Culberson County, Texas (“Salt Creek”). Hut 8 is phasing energization to maximize deployed hashrate pre-halving and will continue to energize the site in the coming weeks.

“With Salt Creek, we gain critical control over our miner fleet and operating costs as we head into the halving,” said Asher Genoot, CEO of Hut 8. “Our outlook on energy prices at the site suggests that the potential for cost savings relative to our cost of mining at Kearney and Granbury is in line with the 30% reduction initially projected.”

As previously announced, Hut 8 relocated a portion of its most efficient hosted miners from Kearney and Granbury to Salt Creek in March to enable rapid energization of the new site. Hut 8 has deployed Reactor, its proprietary energy curtailment software, to automate site operations, ensure that miners hash when profitable, and reduce the site’s realized cost of energy.

“I am incredibly proud of our team for delivering a standard-setting performance at Salt Creek,” said Genoot. “What we have achieved in 78 days, including the removal of more than 25,000 miners from Kearney and Granbury in eight days, is a testament to our market-leading capabilities, work ethic, and ability to execute. We remain on track to deliver an incredibly cost-effective buildout: Our expected all-in cost of $275,000 per megawatt or less represents a 40% savings versus recent acquisitions in the area. As demonstrated with Salt Creek, we will continue to act decisively to strengthen and grow our self-mining business.”

Hut 8 Operations Update for March 2024

25.5 EH/s and 884 MW under management as Hut 8 executes closure of Drumheller site and prepares to energize Salt Creek site

9,102 Bitcoin on balance sheet positions Hut 8 to invest in growth as the halving approaches

MIAMI, FL, April 5, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Hut 8 Corp. (Nasdaq | TSX: HUT), (“Hut 8” or the “Company”) a leading, vertically integrated operator of large-scale energy infrastructure and one of North America’s largest Bitcoin miners today released its operations update for March 2024.

“March was another productive month in our post-merger restructuring program,” said Asher Genoot, CEO of Hut 8. “We continue to make the changes required for profitable, long-term growth.”

“On March 6, we announced the closure of Drumheller. Our team relocated efficient miners to Medicine Hat and retired inefficient miners. We expect to see the impact of these changes on our operating efficiency moving forward.”

“We also made significant progress on our new Salt Creek site and expect to fully energize the site in April, less than three months after breaking ground. We removed our miners from Kearney and Granbury and are relocating them to our owned sites, Salt Creek and Alpha, to be energized. While this decreased our deployed hashrate and Bitcoin production during the month, it gives us the crucial ability to maintain full control of our fleet and drive down our energy costs going into the halving.”

“Lastly, site-level operating responsibilities transitioned to the new owner of Kearney and Granbury and we continue to transition ownership of all other activities at those sites. Under our agreement, we expect to continue generating revenue at these sites until the agreement is terminated at the end of April, at which point we are entitled to receive an early termination fee of $13.5 million.”

“I look forward to sharing more updates on the impact of our restructuring and growth initiatives in the coming months.”
