CIM definition standards were followed for the resource estimate. 2. The 2012 resource models used ordinary kriging (OK) grade estimation within a three-dimensional block model with mineralized zones defined by wireframed solids. 3. A base cutoff grade of 0.7 g/t Au was used for reporting resources with a capping of gold grades at 18 g/t. 4. A density of 2.45 g/cm3 was applied. 5. Numbers may not add exactly due to rounding. 6.
