(1) 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, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues.
(2) 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.
(3) 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.
(4) Historical mined mineralized material has been depleted.
(5) Values in the table may differ due to rounding.

Tetra Tech will utilize the available information, concepts, and conclusions from previous work completed on the MacLellan Mine Project (see Press Release March 19, 2012).

The PEA will include the following with results expected to be completed in the second half of 2013 and will include:

  • Mining
  • Process engineering studies
  • Geotechnical analysis
  • Mining infrastructure and logistics
  • Environmental and socio-economic analysis
  • Capital expenditures
  • Operating expenditures
  • Analysis, recommendations, and opportunities
