  4. 4. 4 Over CDN $35 Million* in exploration expenditures from 1964 to 2016 including 196 drill holes totaling 66,501 metres by companies such as Falconbridge, Rio Tinto and Teck Resources: * as per 2012 independent Valuation Report Most recent historical tonnage & grades Estimate completed in 1996 by Behre Dolbear; Non NI 43-101 compliant Historical Estimates includes: -244 MT @ 0.37% Cu or -1.9 Billion Lbs Cu In Situ, -0.3% Cu cut-off; Deep-South is currently proceeding with a 43- 101 resource estimation including 14,000 meters recently drilled by Teck. Deep-South will also proceed with metallurgical and processing tests. -Previous metallurgical work by METS, Mintek and SGS (2000-2017), have demonstrated that Haib ore reacts very well to heap leaching with recovery rates up to 90%. -Furthermore, it shows that sorting such as DMS could reduce substantially the potential CAPEX.

INAL Project Summary
  6. 6. 6 • With 90 or more kilos of copper used in a full electric vehicle - three to four times more copper than used in a gas-powered car – It is clear to see the positive impact the use of electric vehicle will have on copper demand: Jean-Sébastien Jacques, CEO, Rio Tinto, May 2017 • Our research indicates that 27 million electric cars and buses will be on the road in 2027, up from 3 million this year. This increase will raise copper demand for electric cars and buses form 185,000 tonnes in 2017 to 1.74 million tonnes in 2027: Franco Gonzalez, Senior Technology Analyst IDTechEx, June 2017 • Cormark Securities’ Stefan Ioannou stated that they are maintaining a strong medium to longer term outlook, “as a supply-demand balance emerges on the back of a lack of new timely mine development and the inherent increased cost of sourcing production from lower grade ore; Investing News Network, January 2017 • BHP Billiton estimates a 4 million ton deficit by 2023.

  7. 7. 7 Haib License: •Deep-South holds 100%; •Covers 37,000 hectares; •8 km from the Orange River; •3 km from the main road and main power lines from South Africa; •100 km from the major rail roads system. Haib copper overview
  8. 8. 8 ▪ The Haib Cu-Mo porphyry is arguably the oldest porphyry deposit in the world, which hosts easily identifiable porphyry veins and alteration; ▪ At a cut-off grade of 0.3%Cu, the deposit has a Historical Estimate of 244 Mt @ 0.37% Cu (Stuart-Williams 2004) or 1.9 billion pounds of copper in situ. ▪ There are no Mo assays for this Historical Estimate. The deposit is roughly 2 km long and 1 km wide, and extends from surface to over 800m deep but only the top 350m was used for the Historical Estimate; ▪ The main ore mineral at Haib is chalcopyrite, but minor amounts of bornite, chalcocite and the various green copper oxides can also be found. Oxidation is very shallow, usually less than 30m, and sulphides are common at surface. Haib Project History
  9. 9. From 2010 to 2015 Teck has invested about CAD$ 5 M and completed: • Mapping, • sampling, • IP geophysical survey, • re-logging all historical drill cores, • re-assaying some cores • drilled 14,252 m. The focus was to: • increase tonnage and / or grade of the Haib deposit; • Prospect for adjacent, hidden ore-bodies; • Test Mo credits and define their added economic value; Results have lead: • To the delineation of 4 higher grade zones (+0.30%) within the main deposit; • To the discovery of continuous mineralization from surface to 800 m deep potentially increasing substantially the tonnage; • To the discovery of 5 new satellite bodies; • 43-101 resource estimate in progress. 9 Recent exploration on Haib

INAL Tijirit (Algold) Tasiast (Kinross) Aoueouat Greenstone belt trend Reguibat archean shield The Tasiast Gold mineralisation is in Archean greenstones with strong similarities to the main gold belts in Australia and Canada where hundreds of gold mines have been developped. In the Tasiast district there has been only two discoveries, reflecting how under explored is this belt. INAL Project Summary 16
