  1. 1. Annual General and Special Meeting May 4, 2011 4 Toronto, Ontario 4:30pm
  3. 3. Forward Looking Statements Certain t t C t i statements i thi presentation relating t L k Sh t in this t ti l ti to Lake Shore G ld’ exploration activities, project expenditures and b i Gold’s l ti ti iti j t dit d business plans are "f l "forward- d looking statements" within the meaning of securities legislation. The Company does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements represent management’s best judgment based on current facts and assumptions that management considers reasonable, including that operating and capital plans will not be disrupted by issues such as mechanical failure, unavailability of parts, labour disturbances, interruption in transportation or utilities, or adverse weather conditions, that there are no material unanticipated variations in budgeted costs, that the Company and contractors will complete projects according to schedule, and that actual mineralization on properties will not be less than identified mineral reserves. The Company makes no representation that reasonable business people in possession of the same information would reach the same conclusions. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. In particular, fluctuations in the price of gold or in currency markets could prevent the companies from achieving their targets. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. More information about risks and uncertainties affecting the Company and its business is available in Lake Shore Gold’s most recent annual information form and other regulatory filings which are posted on sedar at There is no guarantee that drill results reported in this presentation will lead to the identification of a deposit that can be mined economically, and further work is required to identify a reserve or resource. QUALITY CONTROL Lake Shore Gold has a quality control program to ensure best practices in the sampling and analysis of drill core. A total of three Quality Control samples consisting of 1 blank, 1 certified standard and 1 reject duplicate are inserted into groups of 20 drill core samples. The blanks and the p g , j p g p p certified standards are checked to be within acceptable limits prior to being accepted into the GEMS SQL database. Routine assays have been completed using a standard fire assay with a 30-gram aliquot. For samples that return a value greater than three grams per tonne gold on exploration projects and greater than 10 gpt at the Timmins mine and Thunder Creek underground project, the remaining pulp is taken and fire assayed with a gravimetric finish. Select zones with visible gold are typically tested by pulp metallic analysis on some projects. NQ size drill core is saw cut and half the drill core is sampled in standard intervals. The remaining half of the core is stored in a secure location. The drill core is transported in security-sealed bags for preparation at ALS Chemex Prep Lab located in Timmins, Ontario, and the pulps shipped to ALS Chemex A Ch Assay L b t Laboratory i V in Vancouver, B C ALS Ch B.C. Chemex i an ISO 9001 2000 registered l b t is 9001-2000 i t d laboratory preparing f ISO 17025 certification. i for tifi ti QUALIFIED PERSON The Company’s Qualified Persons (“QPs”) (as defined in National Instrument 43-101, “Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects”) for diamond drilling projects at the Timmins deposit surface; Thunder Creek, Gold River Trend and 144 properties; Bell Creek Mine; and Casa Berardi optioned property are Jacques Samson, P.Geo., Stephen Conquer, P.Geo, and Keith Green, respectively. Dean Crick, P.Geo. is the QP for the Timmins deposit and Thunder Creek underground drilling projects, and Bob Kusins, P.Geo., is the QP for resource estimation at all of the Company’s properties. As QPs, Messrs. Samson, Conquer, Green, Crick and Kusins have prepared or supervised the preparation of the scientific or technical information for their respective properties as provided in this presentation. Messrs., Samson, Conquer, Kusins, Crick and Green are employees of the Company. * Example of Forward Looking Statement. 3
