PFS Study

PFS Study Highlights: A Gold Project with a Silver Lining1,2

  • Key Optionality in Inflationary Times: Phased development plan with two stages. Providing operational flexibility with low-cost heap leaching in Stage 1 and project expansion potential via mill in the future (Stage 2).
  • Annual Gold equivalent Production (Yr1 to Yr8): 115,000 ozs to 210,000 ozs AuEq per annum.
  • Low pre-production CAPEX: US$282 million for a large production profile in the US.
  • Upside Scenarios: Heap Leach expansion potential through drilling of low-grade stockpiles left behind from previous operators.
  • Sustainability-Driven: All development scenarios contemplate the use of technologies designed to minimize environmental footprints and increase profitability.

Stage 1: 35,000 mtpd Heap Leach

  • Heap leach stage pre-production Capex of US$273 million.
  • LOM site level AISC of US$814/oz on an AuEq co-product basis.
  • Average annual production of 136,000 AuEq from years 1 to 7.
  • LOM total payable production of 749,000 oz Au and 16.2 million oz Ag (954,000 oz AuEq) over a 7 year mine life.
  • Strip Ratio (waste:ore): 1.35.

Stage 1 and 2 PFS: 35,000 mtpd Heap Leach + 6,000 mtpd Mill

  • After-tax NPV(5%) of US$412mm and 27% IRR at US$1,700/oz Au and US$21.50/oz Ag (base case).
  • Pre-production Capex of US$282 million, including contingency, including 20% contingency on processing facilities, tailings and heap leach
  • Average annual production of 163,000 AuEq1 oz from years 1 to 8 with Life of mine (“LOM”) average annual productioin of 110,000 AuEq oz over 16 years.
  • LOM payable ounces of 1,148,659 oz Au and 49,745,662 oz Ag (1,777,796 oz gold equivalent (“AuEq”)) over a 16 year mine life.
  • LOM site level all-in sustaining costs (“AISC”) of US$955/oz on an AuEq co-product basis.
  • Total LOM Strip Ratio (waste:ore): 2.21.
  • Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves of 1.8 million oz Au (at 0.45 g/t Au) and 92.4 million oz Ag (at 23.27 g/t Ag).
  • Heap Leach will process oxide and mixed ore from both the DeLamar and Florida Deposits and a Mill to process non-oxide ore.
1.Gold equivalent = oz Au + (oz Ag ÷ 79.07)
2. Excludes working capital; assumes mining equipment financing (10% cash deposit)

Except for statements of historical fact, certain information contained herein constitutes forwardlooking statements which includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to: the future financial or operating performance of the Company and the DeLamar Project; results from work performed to date; the estimation of mineral resources and reserves; the realization of mineral resource and reserve estimates; the development, operational and economic results of the preliminary feasibility study (the “PFS”) for the DeLamar and Florida Mountain deposits (the “DeLamar Project”), including cash flows, revenue potential, staged development, capital expenditures, development costs and timing thereof, extraction rates, life of mine projections and cost estimates; timing of completion of a technical report summarizing the results of the PFS; magnitude or quality of mineral deposits; anticipated advancement of the DeLamar Project mine plan; exploration expenditures, costs and timing of the development of new deposits; underground exploration potential; costs and timing of future exploration; the completion and timing of future development studies; estimates of metallurgical recovery rates, including prospective use of the Albion Process; anticipated advancement of the DeLamar Project and future exploration prospects; requirements for additional capital; the future price of metals; government regulation of mining operations; environmental risks; the timing and possible outcome of pending regulatory matters; the realization of the expected economics of the DeLamar Project; future growth potential of the DeLamar Project; and future development plans.

Forward-looking statements are based on a number of factors and assumptions made by management and considered reasonable at the time such information is provided. Assumptions and factors include: the Company’s ability to complete its planned exploration programs; the absence of adverse conditions at the DeLamar Project; no unforeseen operational delays; no material delays in obtaining necessary permits; the price of gold remaining at levels that render the DeLamar Project economic; the Company’s ability to continue raising necessary capital to finance operations; and the ability to realize on the mineral resource and reserve estimates.

Cautionary Note for U.S. Investors Concerning Mineral Resources and Reserves
National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) is a rule of the Canadian Securities Administrators which establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects. Technical disclosure contained in this news release has been prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum Classification System. These standards differ from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and resource information contained in this press release may not be comparable to similar information disclosed by domestic United States companies subject to the SEC’s reporting and disclosure requirements.
All references to “$” in this presentation are to U.S. dollars unless otherwise stated.
Cautionary Note Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Measures
Alternative performance measures in this document such as “cash cost”, “AISC” “after-tax cash flow” are furnished to provide additional information. These non-GAAP performance measures are included in this presentation because these statistics are used as key performance measures that management uses to monitor and assess performance of the DeLamar Project, and to plan and assess the overall effectiveness and efficiency of mining operations. These performance measures do not have a standard meaning within International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) and, therefore, amounts presented may not be comparable to similar data presented by other mining companies. These performance measures should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with IFRS.
