I'm getting the following error:

{ code: 13, message: 'execution simulation failed: status = 106' }

When executing this code:

const gasEstimate = await WJEWELContract.methods.mint(amount).estimateGas({from: account.address}, function(estimatedGas) { console.log(estimatedGas) });

WJEWELContract is just an ERC20 with a "mint" method.

Does anybody know what this can be?

The problem was I wasn't calling the method the right way:

    const gasEstimate = WJEWELContract.methods.mint(amount)
                from: account.address,
                gasPrice: _gasPrice
            }, function(error, estimatedGas) {
