Cautionary statementAll monetary amounts in U.S. dollars unless otherwise statedCAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTSCertain information contained in this presentation, including any information relating to New Golds future financial or operating performance may be deemed "forward looking". All statementsin this presentation, other than statements of historical fact, that address events or developments that New Gold expects to occur, are "forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statementsare statements that are not historical facts and are generally, but not always, identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "plans", "expects", "is expected", "budget","scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates", “projects”, “potential”, "believes" or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results"may", "could", "would", “should”, "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved" or the negative connotation. All such forward-looking statements are based on the opinions and estimatesof management as of the date such statements are made and are subject to important risk factors and uncertainties, many of which are beyond New Golds ability to control or predict.Forward-looking statements are necessarily based on estimates and assumptions that are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may causeactual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such factors include, withoutlimitation: significant capital requirements; fluctuations in the international currency markets and in the rates of exchange of the currencies of Canada, the United States, Australia, Mexico andChile; price volatility in the spot and forward markets for commodities; impact of any hedging activities, including margin limits and margin calls; discrepancies between actual and estimatedproduction, between actual and estimated reserves and resources and between actual and estimated metallurgical recoveries; changes in international, national and local governmentlegislation in Canada, the United States, Australia, Mexico and Chile or any other country in which New Gold currently or may in the future carry on business; taxation; controls, regulations andpolitical or economic developments in the countries in which New Gold does or may carry on business; the speculative nature of mineral exploration and development, including the risks ofobtaining and maintaining the validity and enforceability of the necessary licenses and permits and complying with the permitting requirements of each jurisdiction that New Gold operates,including, but not limited to obtaining the necessary permits for the Blackwater project, in Mexico where the Cerro San Pedro mine has a history of ongoing legal challenges related to our EISand Chile where the courts have temporarily suspended the approval of the environmental permit for the El Morro project; the lack of certainty with respect to foreign legal systems, which maynot be immune from the influence of political pressure, corruption or other factors that are inconsistent with the rule of law; the uncertainties inherent to current and future legal challenges thecompany is or may become a party to,; diminishing quantities or grades of reserves; competition; loss of key employees; additional funding requirements; actual results of current exploration orreclamation activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; accidents; labour disputes; defective title to mineral claims or property or contests over claims to mineralproperties. In addition, there are risks and hazards associated with the business of mineral exploration, development and mining, including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, unusualor unexpected formations, pressures, cave-ins, flooding and gold bullion losses (and the risk of inadequate insurance or inability to obtain insurance to cover these risks) as well as "RiskFactors" included in New Golds disclosure documents filed on and available at www.sedar.com.

  • 3. Cautionary statement (cont’d)CAUTIONARY NOTE TO U.S. READERS CONCERNING ESTIMATES OF MEASURED, INDICATED AND INFERRED RESOURCESInformation concerning the properties and operations discussed in this presentation has been prepared in accordance with Canadian standards under applicable Canadian securities laws, andmay not be comparable to similar information for United States companies. The terms "Mineral Resource", "Measured Mineral Resource", "Indicated Mineral Resource" and "Inferred MineralResource" used in this presentation are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with NI 43-101 under guidelines set out in the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum("CIM") Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves adopted by the CIM Council on December 11, 2005. While the terms "Mineral Resource", "Measured Mineral Resource","Indicated Mineral Resource" and "Inferred Mineral Resource" are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, they are not defined terms under standards of the United StatesSecurities and Exchange Commission. Under United States standards, mineralization may not be classified as a "reserve" unless the determination has been made that the mineralizationcould be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve calculation is made. As such, certain information contained in this presentation concerning descriptions ofmineralization and resources under Canadian standards is not comparable to similar information made public by United States companies subject to the reporting and disclosure requirementsof the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. An "Inferred Mineral Resource" has a great amount of uncertainty as to its existence and as to its economic and legal feasibility. Itcannot be assumed that all or any part of an "Inferred Mineral Resource" will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may notform the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Readers are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of Measured or Indicated Resources will ever be converted into MineralReserves. Readers are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an "Inferred Mineral Resource" exists, or is economically or legally mineable. In addition, the definitions of "ProvenMineral Reserves" and "Probable Mineral Reserves" under CIM standards differ in certain respects from the standards of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.TECHNICAL INFORMATIONThe scientific and technical information in this presentation has been reviewed by Mark Petersen, a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 and an employee of New Gold.(1) TOTAL CASH COSTS“Total cash costs” per ounce figures are calculated in accordance with a standard developed by The Gold Institute, which was a worldwide association of suppliers of gold and gold productsand included leading North American gold producers. The Gold Institute ceased operations in 2002, but the standard is widely accepted as the standard of reporting cash cost of production inNorth America. Adoption of the standard is voluntary and the cost measures presented may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. New Gold reports totalcash costs on a sales basis. Total cash costs includes mine site operating costs such as mining, processing, administration, royalties and production taxes, but is exclusive of amortization,reclamation, capital and exploration costs. Total cash costs are reduced by any by-product revenue and are then divided by ounces sold to arrive at the total by-product cash costs of sales.The measure, along with sales, is considered to be a key indicator of a company’s ability to generate operating earnings and cash flow from its mining operations. This data is furnished toprovide additional information and is a non-IFRS measure. Total cash costs presented does not have a standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and may not be comparable to similarmeasures presented by other mining companies. It should not be considered in isolation as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS and is not necessarilyindicative of operating costs presented under IFRS. A reconciliation will be provided in the MD&A accompanying the quarterly financial statements.(2) PEA – ADDITIONAL CAUTIONARY NOTEThis note regarding the preliminary economic assessment (PEA) is in addition to cautionary language already included within the presentation as required under NI 43-101. The BlackwaterPEA is preliminary in nature and includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enablethem to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the PEA based on these mineral resources will be realized. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do nothave demonstrated economic viability. CIBC Whistler 2013 Investor Conference | January 23-25, 2013 3 3

Mineral Resource Estimate has an effective date of July 27, 2012 and was prepared by Ronald G. Simpson, P Geo. 2. Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. 3. Mineral Resources are amenable to open pit mining methods as defined by a Lerchs-Grossmann optimized pit simulation. 4. The Lerchs-Grossmann optimized pit is based on assumptions that include US$/CDN$ parity foreign exchange rate, 83.6% Au recovery, 44.9% Ag recovery, $1.52/tonne mining cost, $1.90/tonne waste mining cost, $10.52/tonne process and G&A cost. No allowances have been made for mining losses and dilution. The average pit slope angle is assumed to be 40°. 5. The base case gold equivalent (AuEq) cut-off (bolded) is greater than the conceptual marginal cut-off of 0.23 g/t. 6. AuEq = $24/oz Ag x 44.9% / $1,300/oz x 83.6%. 7. Gold analyses are performed by fire assay/AA finish methods and silver analyses are performed by Induction Coupled Plasmaspectrometry (ICP). Silver ICP analyses are not known with the same precision and do not have the same quality control support as gold fire assay analyses. 8.

  • 61. Appendix 6 Reserves and resource notes (cont’d)Mineral reserves are contained within measured and indicated mineral resources. Measured and indicated mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economicviability as defined by a technical feasibility study. Inferred mineral resources are not known with the same degree of certainty as measured and indicated resources, do not have demonstratedeconomic viability, and are exclusive of mineral reserves. Mineral Reserves have been estimated and reported in accordance with the CIM Standards and National Instrument 43-101, or theAusIMM JORC equivalent.1) Mineral Reserves for the company’s mining operations and development projects have been calculated based on the following metal prices and lower cut-off criteria: Mineral Property Gold (US$/oz) Silver (US$/oz) Copper (US$/lb) Lower Cut-off Mesquite $1,200 - - 0.21 g/t Au – Oxide reserves 0.41 g/t Au – Non-oxide reserves Cerro San Pedro $1,200 $20.00 - US$3.49/t NSR Peak Mines $1,300 $25.00 $2.75 A$130 – 184/t NSR New Afton $1,200 $20.00 $2.50 US$24/t NSR El Morro $1,200 - $2.75 0.20% Cu CIBC Whistler 2013 Investor Conference | January 23-25, 2013 61 61

Where different mining and/or processing methods might be applied to different portions of a mineralized system or metal deposit, thedesignators ‘open pit’ and ‘underground’ have been applied to indicate likely mining method. Likewise the designators ‘oxide’, ‘non-oxide’ and ‘sulfide’ have been applied to indicate the type ofmineralization as it applies to appropriate mineral processing method and expected payable metal recoveries. Additional details regarding mineral resource estimation, classification andreporting parameters for each of New Gold’s mines and projects are provided in the respective NI 43-101 Technical Reports and available on SEDAR.4) Qualified Person: The preparation of New Gold’s mineral reserve and resource statements has been done by Qualfied Persons as defined under Canadian under National Instrument 43-101under the oversight and review of Mark Petersen, a Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101 and employee of New Gold.
