Company carries on business; operating or technical difficulties in connection with mining or development activities; employee relations; availability and costs
associated with mining inputs and labour; the speculative nature of exploration and development, including the risks of obtaining necessary licenses and permits and
diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; changes in costs and estimates associated with our projects; the accuracy of our reserve estimates (including with

DEAL CREATES SIGNIFICANT VALUE
FOR ALL SHAREHOLDERS
Acquired Oromin Explorations, gained access to Oromin Joint Venture Group (“OJVG”)
Technical services team currently integrating OJVG deposits into Teranga operations
Release of technical report in Q1’14
Development strategy / combined mine plan
Update to reserves, resources
The combination is expected to result in:
An increase in annual production and mine life
Higher free cash flow, net asset value and earnings
An increase in operational flexibility
Capital and operating synergies, low incremental capital required
A seamless integration
THE COMBINED ASSET BASE
Multiple deposits allows operational flexibility
Allows for optimal sequencing of deposits based on:
1) grade 2) ore hardness 3) distance to mill 4) incremental capital requirements
• Processing OJVG ore is expected to establish Sabodala as a 275,000 – 300,000 oz/yr producer
• The Republic of Senegal supports a consolidation and are in favour of development of resources
Based on total proven and probable reserves of Teranga and of the OJVG (based on the open-pit mineral reserve estimates contained in the OJVG 43-101 Report). Based on
life of mine cash flows at a US$1,400/oz gold price assumption .
