About Sulliden Gold Corporation Ltd.
Sulliden is a mineral exploration and development company focused on advancing its 100% owned Shahuindo project to production. Currently in its permitting phase, this low capital and operating cost gold and silver mine project is located in a prolific gold-producing district in northern Peru. A September 2012 Feasibility Study (based on $1,415 Gold and $27 Silver) on the foundation phase of the project estimates an initial CAPEX of $131.8 million that will support an annual mining rate of 3.65 million tonnes producing approximately 90,000 of gold equivalent ounces for 10.4 years at cash operating costs of $552/oz. This initial mine scenario features a pre tax IRR of 52.2% and post-tax IRR of 37.8%. The Feasibility Study considers only approximately 40% of the gold ounces from the total oxide mineral resource and the Company intends to expand its operation once in production. Additional mineral growth from exploration drilling on defined targets adjacent to the current resource is also anticipated. Sulliden is led by a proven management team with hands-on experience developing and operating mines in Latin America. The foregoing contains forward-looking statements with respect to CAPEX, annual mining rate, annual production, length of mine life and IRR that are based on the assumptions and subject to certain risk factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed, as outlined in detail in our technical report entitled "Technical Report on the Shahuindo Heap Leach Project, Cajabamba, Peru", dated November 9, 2012, which is available at www.sedar.com.
