Mandalay Resources May 2019 Investor Presentation

  2. 2. 2 This presentation contains "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including statements relating to life of mine production plans, exploration plans and the growth and strategy of Mandalay. Actual results and developments may differ materially from those contemplated by these statements depending on, among other things: exploration results or production results not meeting management’s expectations; capital, production and operating cost results not meeting current plans; and changes in commodity prices and general market and economic conditions. The factors identified above are not intended to represent a complete list of the factors that could affect Mandalay. A description of additional risks that could result in actual results and developments differing from those contemplated by forward looking statements in this news release can be found under the heading “Risk Factors” in Mandalay’s annual information form dated March 28, 2019, its short form base shelf prospectus dated February 12, 2018, and prospectus supplement dated February 12, 2019, copies of which are available under Mandalay’s profile at Although Mandalay has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Quality Control and Assurance Quality control and assurance programs are implemented in line with the standards of National Instrument 43-101. The exploration programs at Mandalay’s properties are supervised by Chris Gregory (Member, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, VP of Operational Geology for Mandalay and a “Qualified Person” as defined under National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Gregory regularly visits Mandalay’s properties, and supervises the collection and interpretation of scientific and technical information contained in this presentation. Dominic Duffy, President and CEO of Mandalay, has visited Costerfield, Cerro Bayo, Challacollo, and Björkdal and has supervised the preparation of this presentation.

  12. 12. 12 Could there be Fosterville style gold at Costerfield? – Yes  Key similarities in the upper Costerfield system that Mandalay has mined  A litho-geochemical (carbonaceous shales) environment exists, at depth, that is similar to the Fosterville high nugget (Swan zone) environment; this environment also sits at a similar depth below surface to the Swan zone  Mandalay has intercepted this zone in the Sub KC Drilling with 2 of 4 intercepts returning high gold grades supporting the analogy Deep Drilling at Costerfield: Fosterville Comparison Fosterville Deposits Costerfield Deposits Fosterville Costerfield 30 km Fosterville and Costerfield are fundamentally similar in mineral source, fluid composition, fluid transportation system and fluid trap environment
  13. 13. 13 Where to Target a Fosterville-like Environment  The success of Fosterville now changes again our stance on the viability of this area  The Orange unit signifies a Carbon-rich turbidite package similar to that which separates the refractory and nuggetty gold within Fosterville  We have intercepted the mineralized corridor under this unit with good results  2 proposed deep holes 1,200 m from surface with wedging will aid in providing information on potential and future targets CSK007 – 0.08m @ 1,361 g/t Au CSK012 – 0.18m @ 259 g/t Au (Deepest hole and intercept in the district) Fosterville Swan zone  starting at  950m below  surface Fosterville Swan zone  starting at  950m below  surface Resource outlines CSK007 and CSK012 Proposed Targets
