The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, marketing, or other relevant issues. MM = million Resource Criteria; The mineral resources mentioned above are defined in terms of the NI 43-101 regulations and their estimation was carried out using industry standard practices using ordinary kriging of blocks 20 x 20 x 10 m high. The mineral resources are undiluted and a total of 15 assays were capped at 0.43 % Mo. Indicated Mineral Resource estimates were produced using a search ellipse with dimensions equal to 1/2 the semivariogram range. A specific gravity based on 328 measurements of 2.69 was used for tonnage calculations. Assay results from 42 diamond drill holes totaling 21,144 meters were used. A total of 7,531 Mo assay intersections made up the resource database. Most of the resource estimated here is located between surface and a depth of 500 meters. The deposit is open to depth. The Company is very pleased with the result of these Independent estimates and, subject to the Conclusions and Recommendations in the upcoming NI 43-101 Report, it will use this resource data as the basis for a Preliminary Assessment of the Property.
