  • 17. Why MTB “Northern Peru Copper is a ‘junior’ mining company, strong on geology, exploration, and financial know- how, how but short on the kind of comprehensive management resources necessary for detailed development of our El Galeno copper project. MTB stepped in and gave us exactly the kind of strong, knowledgeable management and oversight that we needed to keep our development progressing on time and within budget while ensuring that no critical steps, elements or information are overlooked. As we progress from prefeasibility into feasibility, we know that we can trust MTB to manage all our technical consultants, keep a watchful eye on the budget and schedule, anticipate and solve problems before they become critical, and to help us create the highest-quality and most accurate feasibility study possible.” Marshall Koval, CEO Northern Peru Copper Corp Corp. regarding MTB’s management of prefeasibility and feasibility studies for the El Galeno Project in Peru “MTB helped us develop and build our p j as any owner desires: within budget and on schedule. Even p p project y g though these were great achievements, the fact that the mine started operations with no technical problems made MTBs contribution really outstanding.“ Miguel Aramburú, CEO Hochschild Mining plc regarding MTBs management of the development and construction of the Sipán Heap Leach Gold Project in northern Perú
  • 18. Why MTB “MTB came in during the middle of the project to help the contractor get a handle on the projects cost and schedule. schedule They assessed the situation quickly and made sure that I understood the problems honestly and responsibly. These people are straight shooters intent on serving the project owners interests. I was impressed and looked forward to bringing them in on my next project.“ Dave Dillman Construction Manager Commonwealth Edisons Facilities and Engineering Construction Division at Joliet Station 29 power generating facility on MTBs project controls services during the construction of a 24-cell cooling tower facility for the station "Without MTB, it might have been another year or more before the project actually got started. MTB entered an environment in which attitudes were hostile, negotiations were stalled, and no one could see a clear direction for the project. MTB produced the first project schedule, mediated different groups toward agreement on methodologies, and provided a vision that this project could be accomplished. Their value has t th d l i d id d i i th t thi j t ld b li h d Th i l h only increased as the project has moved forward.“ Mary OToole Former Director, Environmental Services Group Commonwealth Edison on MTBs project planning and coordination services on the Barrie Park MGP Remediation Project

All consulting engineers have more work than they can handle. Many mining companiesare trying to move new projects toward production as fast as possible so that they may reap the benefits of high metalprices. Inca Pacific is such a company with a greenfield copper-molybdenum project in Peru. Without MTB to coordinateand manage our principle consultants, Inca Pacific would be unable to complete its definitive feasibility study on time andon budget. MTB brings discipline and control to the engineering process, which today is more crucial than at any time inrecent history.” Anthony “Tony” Floyd President and Director Inca Pacific Resources regarding MTB’s management of prefeasibility and feasibility studies for the Magistral Project in Peru“MTB’s management expertise, attention to detail, and creative problem solving have been essential to the success ofFranconia Mineral’s efforts to advance the development of our Birch Lake project in northern Minnesota. Since weretained MTB in mid-2006 to manage our prefeasibility study, MTB has brought cost-effective management to all areas ofour exploration operations and project development. They provide day-to-day management of our drilling andmetallurgical testing work, in addition to managing the engineering, geotechnical and other consultants completing thestudy. In managing all of these activities and consultants, MTB has focused on controlling our budget and schedule.MTB has also provided invaluable assistance with our public information efforts.” Brian Gavin President and CEO Franconia Minerals Inc. regarding MTB’s management of development activities and a prefeasibility study for the Birch Lake Project in Minnesota

Mary OToole Former Director, Environmental Services Group Commonwealth Edison on MTBs project planning and coordination services on the Barrie Park MGP Remediation Project“I cannot overstate the quality of the people working for and the work product of MTB Project Management Professionals,Inc. I have had the benefit of their guidance as both a business attorney in private practice and as President and GeneralCounsel of a privately held precious metals reclamation company. MTB leaves no stone unturned, and gives 110% oftheir efforts and talent to every project, at every stage. They completed a feasibility study that has been the backbone ofa company with which I have been working for four years. I am convinced that this company would have faltered withoutMTBs participation. I have been so impressed with MTB and the success that MTB engenders that one of my primaryobjectives at present is to introduce clients with production facility and construction management needs to MTB so that Ican be assured of my clients future success.” Jeff Sanborn President, Vanguard Platinum, and Business Attorney, Williams Mullen, A Professional Corporation Norfolk, Virginia

When they came in, they brought some fresh energy that seemed to help move things forward. I saw them as justwhat we needed to move past the logjam we were in, and our Park District pushed to have them manage the work for theutilities.
