Non-IFRS Financial Performance Measures

The Company has included certain non-IFRS measures in this press release, including "total cash cost per copper pound", "average realized price", "average realized margin", "adjusted EBITDA" and "adjusted EBITDA per share". The Company believes these measures, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with IFRS, provide investors an improved ability to evaluate the underlying performance of the Company. The non-IFRS measures are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. These measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed under IFRS, and therefore may not be comparable to other issuers.

Refer to page 9 of the Company's MD&A for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 for a reconciliation of these measures.
