DISCLAIMERCLICK TO EDIT MASTER TITLE STYLECompetent Person’s StatementThe information in the report to which this statement is attached that relates to Exploration Results and Mineral Resources is based on information compiled by Dr Adrian McArthur, the General Manager Exploration forMungana Goldmines Ltd, and who is a member of the Australian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy and is a full time employee of the Company. Dr McArthur has sufficient experience relevant to the style ofmineralisation and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity which he is undertaking to qualify as a Competent Person as defined in the 2004 Edition of the ‘Australasian Code for Reporting of ExplorationResults, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves’. Dr McArthur consents to the inclusion in the report of the matters based on his information in the form and context in which it appears.• Click to edit Master text stylesJORC – Exploration Targets – Second levelIt is common practice for a company to comment on and discuss its exploration in terms of target size and type. The information in this presentation relating to exploration targets should not be misunderstood ormisconstrued as an estimate of Mineral Resources or Ore Reserves. Hence the terms Resource(s) or Reserve(s) have not been used in this context. The potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature, since therehas been insufficient work completed to define them beyond exploration targets and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the determination of a Mineral Resource. • Third levelForward-Looking Statements – Fourth levelThis presentation has been prepared by Mungana Goldmines Ltd.
