Dolly VardenNotes on Historic mineral resource estimates* SilverComments:a: Skerl (1964) and Mann (1974) Dolly Varden Mine staff. Remaining resource blocks are in proximity to mined out stopesand downplunge extensions of mined out areas.b: Thompson & Pearson (1981) Derry Michener & Booth. Minimum mining width of 5 ft. No prior mining.c: Leigh & Thompson (1983) Derry Michener & Booth. Comprised of 18 zones. Most zones are in the hanging wall of theglory hole and mined out stopes of the 1959 operation.d: Thompson & Pearson (1981) Derry Michener & Booth. No prior mining. Tested by two levels of underground adits.e: Thompson & Pearson (1981) Derry Michener & Booth. No prior mining. Tested by three levels of undergound adits.f: Thompson & Pearson (1981) Derry Michener & Booth. No prior mining.Note 1: This resource estimate was prepared from incomplete old plans and sections, considerable verification drillingis required prior to placing reliance on this information.Note 2: Historic Resource Classifications used in mineral resource estimates at the Dolly Varden deposits termed blockswith closely spaced drilling and bulk sampling data "Proven and Probable Reserves" and made allowances for miningoperations and dilution. However, significant additional technical work is required. In the current terminology theseblocks would be termed Measured and Indicated Mineral Resources, however, for the purposes of this Technical Reportthey are to be considered Geological Information only and subject to verification by drilling and sampling, prior toreclassification.Note 3: Historic Resource Classifications used in mineral resource estimates at the Dolly Varden deposits termed blockswith more widely spaced drilling "Possible Reserves". In the case of Torbrit, Thompson and Pearson (1981) reduced theconfidence to Possible because the closely spaced drilling data must be subject to considerable check drilling. In thecurrent terminology these blocks would be termed Inferred Mineral Resources, however, for the purposes of thisTechnical Report they are to be considered Geological Information only and subject to verification by drilling andsampling, prior to reclassification.Note 4: The Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the Historical Estimates as current MineralResources or Mineral Reserves. Furthermore, the Issuer is not treating these Historical Estimates as current MineralResources or Mineral Reserves.*Notes from Geology and Mineral Exploration of the Dolly Varden Property, British Columbia, CanadaSept. 5, 2011, as revised.

Dolly Varden2012 Objectives – Longer term milestones Silver2012 Objectives• Increase silver resources at Dolly Varden and Torbrit deposits by drilling down plunge of known Historic resource blocks.• Limited infill drilling and underground sampling to begin to convert Wolf historic resources, and 2011 drill results to 43-101 compliant categories.• Refine Eskay target on Redpoint with geochemistry, alteration studies and geophysics (VTEM) prior to drill testing (minimum 3 holes in 2012)Longer Term Milestones (success contingent)• Increase Historic resources at all 4 deposits from current 14 million ounces to 45 to 50 million ounces of 43-101 compliant resources.• With success in defining 45 million + ounces initiate scoping through to feasibility studies to determine the economic viability of a 1,000 to 1,500 tonne per day operation.• Continue to develop Eskay targets towards discovery. 32
Dolly VardenCorporate Overview Silver• Evaluating the re-start of historic Dolly Varden silver mines, BC• Exploring a major untested Eskay Creek- type gold and silver target• Senior management team experienced in both Eskay Creek-type exploration and re- starting old mines• 2012 proposed diamond drill program of 8,900 m to expand silver resources and define and drill Eskay type targets. 33
