|TIMOK GOLD PROJECT MINERAL RESOURCE ESTIMATES|
(as at June 30, 2012)
(as at October 30, 2012)
- The gold price used in this estimate was the mean gold price for 2010 and 2011 of US$1350/oz. First phase, extensive metallurgical test work is nearing completion and, based on information to date, along with possible projected throughput rates for the entire Timok Gold Project, typical mining costs and a range of processing costs and indicative ranges of processing recoveries it is, at this stage, believed that possible cut off grades lie in the range of 0.4g/t to 0.8g/t.
- Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing, or other relevant issues.
- The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred resources as indicated or measured mineral resources.
- Totals and average grades are subject to rounding to the appropriate precision.
