The information on porphyry copper and gold Exploration Targets in this presentation are based on a conceptual range of targets as follows: Tonnage range: 300 million to >500 million tonnes Grade range: 0.3% Cu to 2.0% Cu & 0.3 g/t Au to 2 g/t Au Metal: 1Mt contained copper & >0.5 million ounces of gold Forward-Looking Statement & Disclaimer 1

Miga Arc Victoria’s emerging copper – gold porphyry province  Similar to Andes, largest known copper porphyry mines, but at an early stage of exploration  Comparable to Macquarie Arc (Cadia Valley & North Parkes mines)  Volcanic arcs host large deposits - porphyry copper, epithermal base metal & gold deposits  Porphyries occur in clusters & are large, low- grade deposits of more than 500Mt with 0.3% - 2% copper 0.3g/t - 2g/t gold 5
  7. 7. The Emergence of Victorian Copper 6 Eclipse prospect
  8. 8.  Total area 1,278km²  100% owned  130kms of volcanics with no deep drill holes  Four confirmed porphyry prospects:  Eclipse  Lexington  Pollockdale  Glenlyle  Close to established infrastructure Western Victoria Copper Project 7
  9. 9. Eclipse Prospect Advancing towards a porphyry Cu-Au discovery  3 large targets: 2 undrilled; no deep drilling  Shallow drilling of IP Target 1: Discovery of enriched copper (chalcocite) 30m below surface Discovery of broad gold zone containing high grades up to 5.6g/t Au Shallow gold & copper part of a deeper & larger anomaly  Follow-up 3,000m angled RC drill program starts June 2014 8
