Community Advantages • British Columbia is viewed internationally as a desirable and politically mining-friendly mining investment destination • Mine site is situated within a thriving mining district • 130 km west of Copper Mountain’s copper-gold mine brought into production in mid-2011 • 175 kilometres south of NewGold’s New Afton copper – gold project expected to commence production in mid-2012 and Abacus’s Afton-Ajax copper – gold development project • Abundance of local skilled workers available • Strong roots in local community • Member of Hope Chamber of Commerce • Ongoing presentations and community outreach meetings • Desirable place to live • First Nations relationship is established and advancing
Favorable Environmental & Sustainability Profile • Not within any designated or proposed park or environmentally sensitive area • No other designated commercial interest other than logging and mining • No known environmental liabilities on site • LC50 fish mortality test of flotation tailings conducted by Lakefield Research in 1996 indicate fish mortality level was 0% • Water sampling of tailings outlet, portals and creeks indicate no hazardous levels of elements of concern such as Fe, Cu, Zn, Pb, As • No Acid rock Drainage (ARD) - Acid-base accounting results indicate potential acid consuming material which mitigates costly handling of waste rock • Baseline water sampling - on going. Most recent sampling: November 2012
Mining and Metallurgy • 10 kms of pre-existing underground Carolin mine structure • 800 level track accessible • 850 to 1015 level is ramp accessible • Not flooded • 30% of mill complex still standing • 2 - 500 ton ball mills • Coarse ore storage • Permitted for 1300 t/day • Underground rock stability and working conditions are excellent • Ore is modestly refractory (VG, pyrite, pyrrhotite, arsenopyrite) • Gravity gold recovery • Flotation of the sample produced a rougher concentrate containing 39.7 g/t Au, 7.21 g/t Ag and 16.7%S at a gold recovery of 91.3%. • The pressure oxidation of the concentrate yielded an average sulphide oxidation of 97.2%. • The gold recovery achieved in POX-CIL testing of flotation concentrate is 96.3%. The overall recovery of gold by flotation-pressure oxidation-cyanidation combined with cyanidation of the flotation tailing is 94.5%
Development Plan Carolin Mine project • Increase existing gold resource through surface and underground drilling programs, in keeping with development plans for 2013 (subject to financing) • Improve recoveries by utilizing modern metallurgical processes • Investigate various mining scenarios • Initiate PEA on Carolin Mine resource 4th quarter 2013 McMaster Open Pit • Build on NI 43-101 resource estimate of 79,000 oz (inferred) • Initiate surface drilling program 3rd quarter 2013 • Initiate PEA at McMaster after 2013 drilling program
Tailings Project – Early Cash Flow Potential • Potential near term cash flow • Permitted Tailings Storage Facility in excellent condition • Existing Tailings Storage Facility (TSF) is expandable • NI 43-101 resource report (approximately 60% of TSF) – Indicated Mineral Resource in Tailings Storage Facility estimated at 23,700 ounces of gold in 445,378 tons at a cutoff grade of 1.00 g/t gold. – Inferred Mineral Resource estimate of 5,000 ounces of gold in 93,304 tons at a cutoff grade of 1.00 g/t gold • Economic PEA completed March 2012 • Process tailings resource using portable processing system • Target production start date 4th quarter 2013 (subject to financing)
Upside Potential • Coquihalla Gold Belt has potential for multimillion ounce gold resource - numerous gold showings which have never been drill tested - eight defined target areas • Two other small past producing mines may have open pit potential: – Emancipation Mine – Pipestem Mine • Primary drill area (1.2 kilometres) between Carolin Mine and McMaster – historic Montana showing (30 ounces gold from 2 tons at surface) • Airborne Magnetometer and Radiometric geophysical survey completed over 144 sq kilometers of the Coquihalla Gold Belt. Results indicate 28 kilometres of ultramafic –sediment gold contact.

Exploration • Coquihalla Gold Belt has potential to host approximately 1 million + oz of gold prospecting and mapping of numerous gold showings which have never been drill tested • Two other small past producing mines may have open pit potential: • Emancipation Mine • 4 portals • 600 m underground workings • Pipestem Mine • 2 portals • 300 m underground workings • Area (1.2 kilometres) between Carolin Mine and McMaster has never been drilled
ExplorationAirborne Magnetometer surveycompleted over the claim group.Results show 28 kilometres ofultramafic (purple) – sediment (blue)gold contact area.
Geological Setting & Mineralization • Coquihalla Gold Belt is comprised of northwesterly trending sub- parallel east and west linears of the Hozameen Fault system and transected by northeasterly trending faults • Tectonics have resulted in numerous shear and dilatant zones amenable to gold mineralization • Host to 5 underground mines and over 15 known gold showings. • Gold/Silver ratio varies from 13:1 to 4:1 depending upon location • Gold mineralization is both lithologically and structurally controlled • Several stacked mineralized zones ranging up to 30m in width showing good uniformity of gold grade • Replacement model together with long intervals of continuous gold mineralization indicating porphyry gold system • Alteration and mineral paragenesis suggests zoning and more than one period of gold mineralization
Ladner - Gold Hosts1. Stacked replacement gold zones2. Gold porphyry areas3. Several known and distinct gold hosts4. Folded Conglomerates5. Vein deposits within Volcanic rocks6. Unconformity between Volcanics and Sediments7. Disseminated in porous Sediments8. Gold zones occur at ultramafic – sediment contact along major regional Hozameen Fault
