  6. 6. Shotgun Project, Alaska Inferred Resource Estimate *: Shotgun Resource Estimate - modelled at an ~ 0.3 to 0.5 g/t cut-off. Au Cut-off Tonnes Grade (g/t) Ounces 0.3 g/t 24,509,842 0.96 759,442 0.5 g/t 20,734,313 1.06 705,960 0.7 g/t 14,779,225 1.24 590,600 1.0 g/t 9,101,458 1.49 437,365 * The Shotgun Ridge prospect contains an inferred mineral resource of 20,734,313 tonnes at 1.06 grams per tonne (“g/t”) for a total of 705,960 ounces gold (“Au”) using a 0.5 g/t Au cut-off. The inferred mineral resource estimate was prepared by Allan Armitage, PhD., P.Geol., of GeoVector Management Inc., a Qualified Person as defined by the Canadian Institute of Mining (CIM) Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves and the National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. The Shotgun Zone mineral resource estimate, publicly reported on April 22, 2013, is based on 34 diamond drill holes (NQ) totalling 4,932.3 metres, with 2,481 assays (0.2 up to 10 metres in length). Holes were drilled by several operators in five drill campaigns conducted between 1984 and 2012. The 34 drill holes are spaced primarily 40 to 100 metres apart in an area of approximately 375 x 300 metres. The drill holes tested mineralization to a vertical depth up to 150 metres. A resource model for the Shotgun Zone was constructed based on the distribution of the gold mineralization (> 0.3 to 0.5 g/t Au) and this model was used to constrain the composite values chosen for interpolation. A block model with block dimensions of 5 x 5 x 5 metres in the x, y and z directions was placed over resource model solids with only that proportion of each block below the topographic/overburden surface and inside the solid recorded. Grades for gold were interpolated into the blocks by the inverse distance squared (“ID2”) method using a minimum of 2 and maximum of 12 composites to generate block grades in the Inferred resource category. The search ellipse used to interpolate grade into the blocks measured 110 x 60 x 110 (Principle Az – 235°, Principle Dip - 25°, Intermediate Az.- 325°). The size and orientation of the search ellipse approximates the strike, dip and thickness of the resource model and takes into account the limited drilling and relatively wide spacing of the drilling. There are currently no known encumbrances with regards to legal, political, environmental or other risks that could materially affect the potential development of the Shotgun Ridge prospect, and however, the EPA is conducting an environmental review of the Bristol Bay watershed in response to the proposed development of the Pebble Deposit, approximately 150 kilometres to the southeast of Shotgun Ridge. The mineral resources reported herein are classified as inferred mineral resources according the CIM Definition Standards for Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves. No economic studies were undertaken on this mineral resource estimate and it should be noted that mineral resources are not mineral reserves and there is no guarantee that the current mineral resource at Shotgun Ridge will result in an economically viable deposit.
