  • 1. TSX-V COD OTCQX COGGF FRANKFURT CY41 Growing Projects in Canada Growing the Hope Brook Gold Project Corporate Presentation August 2013
  • 2. 2
  • 3. 3  Canadian mineral exploration company whose focus is growing the Hope Brook Gold project in Canada.  Coastal Gold’s flagship property is the Hope Brook Gold Project in mining-friendly, southwestern Newfoundland.  Currently completing a 4,250m resource definition drill program to support a Preliminary Economic Assessment scheduled for completion early 2014.  Completed a 6,000m Fall drilling program in 2012 which outlined a major new near surface target zone that extends 1,200m along strike.  Bulk of resource is within potentially open pittable constraining shell defined at $1,400/oz gold and cutoff grade of 0.5 g Au/t.  Updated NI 43-101 Mineral Resource released for Hope Brook in October 2012 only 8 months after initial estimate.  Strong Board, Management and Technical Team committed to developing the project.
  • 4. 4 Resource Definition Drilling  Resource Definition diamond drill program commenced August 2013  4,250 metres of diamond drilling planned in 23 drill holes.  Focus primarily on testing two main areas - The Footwall Target and Southwest Pit extension to expand and upgrade potentially open pittable resources.  70 Vibracore drill holes to test gold mineralization within the tailings ponds. Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA)  Engineering and technical work for PEA commenced August 2013  Allan Polk, P.Eng. an experienced mining engineer appointed project manager  Update resource estimate following drilling to form basis for PEA  Study scheduled to be completed in early 2014
  • 5. 5
  • 6. 6  100% ownership in 1,005 claims covering approximately 25,000 ha*  Historical production (1987 – 1997) of 752,163 ounces gold in time of low gold prices (<US$400/oz)  Mine produced a copper concentrate from 1993-1997  No exploration drilling on property since 1996 until Coastal Gold started diamond drilling in 2010
  • 7. 7
  • 8. 8  High sulphidation gold deposit formed from a long lived magmatic- hydrothermal system  Mineralized zone open along strike and at depth  Alteration pattern similar to large scale epithermal systems  Considerable upside for outlining additional higher grade mineralization within extensive lower grade mineralization
  • 9.  Drill program identified a major new near surface target zone in the “Connector Zone” that extends for 1,200m along strike  Mineralized silicified zones were intersected over a strike length of 3.4km demonstrating continuity of the system  Thickness and character of the Connector Zone alteration is interpreted to be similar to that of the former mine and 240 Zone  New Drill Results* include: • Hole HB12-100: 1.51 Au g/t over 14m, 2.03 Au g/t over 8m, and 1.07 Au g/t over 18.1m • Hole HB12-101: 1.04 g Au/t over 8.5m, 1.44 g Au/t over 2.9m, and 1.35 g Au/t over 5.6m 9
  • 10. Major Exploration Targets at Hope Brook 10 Information contained in this image is interpreted from the NI 43-101 Technical Report
  • 11. New Structural Model with Major Folds 11 Drilling and geophysics have identified a major fold structure that closes below surface in the Connector Zone. This explains why the silicified horizon doesn’t come to surface southwest of the existing mine where historical drilling failed to intersect the mineralized silicified zone.

  • 13. 13  Constraining shell incorporates essentially all of the remaining historic resources in the former Hope Brook mine in addition to new areas of resource as defined by Coastal Gold, including the Pit Zone, Hanging Wall Zone and Mine Zone Extension.  There is a possible copper credit that is not included in the mineral resource due to missing copper assays in historical drill holes.  Resource estimate includes a dyke dilution model hence reported grades are diluted
  • 14. Growing the Resource 14
  • 15.  Deposit is open along strike and at depth  Twinned holes typically return much higher gold and copper grades compared to historical holes  Historic drill holes too short to test depth extension  Widespread higher grade mineralization  Silicified zones can be traced using geophysics with new drilling confirming intercepts 15
