  20. 20. Exploring for High Value VMS Deposits Volcanic-hosted polymetallic sulfide (VMS) deposits are extremely attractive exploration targets: • Mix of copper-lead-zinc-gold-silver • Hedge against fluctuating metal prices • Deposits can range from under 1 to over 100 million tonnes • Large, discrete lenses of high value ore enables cost-effective mining • Smaller surface and environmental footprint • VHMS deposits tend to occur in clusters • Additional discoveries often following one upon the other 20
  21. 21. Onaman Property: On the verge of discovery Historical exploration (1940s) led to discovery of the Headway deposit, hosting 739,400 tons averaging 3.15% zinc and 31 g/t silver (Non- Compliant Historical Resource) Recent exploration (2000s) led to the discovery of the Lynx deposit with a Compliant Inferred Resource of 1.936 million tonnes averaging 1.44% copper, 39.6 g/t silver and 0.58 g/t gold Both deposits fit perfectly within the context of a classic VMS setting, with the main deposit remaining to be found Historical and current geological mapping has documented numerous features associated with the VMS setting 21

  23. 23. Two properties, situated in established mining camps near industry players, offer production potential with low CAPEX, exploration upside and commodity diversification. Why invest? Clavos – Dewatering, Drilling Q1/2 2017, Production Q3 2017, new Gold structures to be drilled Onaman - VMS targets selected, Acquired Strategic Property, Drilling Q1 2017 Rerating event – Project Financing – non-dilutive, Clavos Production, Onaman New Discoveries, Timmins camp consolidating Strong financial backing, and broad shareholder base. 23
  24. 24. With production, development and exploration stage assets consisting of both base and precious metals, an experienced and dedicated management team, commodity diversification and a renewed metals bull market underway, Sage is poised for significant appreciation. 24
