Note: This mineral resource has been estimated to conform to NI 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects and was prepared by Mr. Frank Hrdy P.Geo., who also serves as an independent Qualified Person (QP) as defined under NI 43-101. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.


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. It is noted that no specific issues have been identified as yet.


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 an Indicated or Measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an Indicated or Measured mineral resource category.


The mineral resources in this report were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by the CIM Council.


The 5.0 g/t AuEq resource cut-off grade was derived from the April 30/16 two year trailing average Au price of US$1,197/oz, US$/C$ exchange rate of 0.817, 90% process recovery, C$45/t process cost, C$125/t mining cost and C$35/t G&A cost.
