  2. 2. Forward Looking InformationThis presentation contains forward-looking information under Canadian securities legislation. Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to the developmentpotential and timetable of the projects; the Company’s ability to raise additional funds as necessary or on commercially reasonable terms; the future price of gold; the estimation of mineralresources and mineral reserves; conclusions of economic evaluation (including scoping studies); the realization of mineral resource and reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimatedfuture production, development and exploration; costs of future activities; capital and operating expenditures; success of exploration activities; mining or processing issues; currency exchangerates; government regulation of mining operations; and environmental risks. Generally, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “plans”,“expects” or “does not expect”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates” or “does not anticipate”, or “believes”, or variations of such words and phrases orstatements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved”. Forward-looking information is based on the opinions and estimates ofmanagement as of the date such statements are made. Estimates regarding the anticipated timing, amount and cost of mining at the projects are based on assumptions underlying mineralresource estimates and the realization of such estimates; results of previous mining activities at the projects, and detailed research and analysis completed by independent of the Company;research and estimates regarding the timing of delivery for long-lead items; knowledge regarding the factors consultants and management involved in building a mine and other factors describedin the technical reports and Annual Information Form filed under the profile of the Company on SEDAR. Capital and operating cost estimates are based on results of previous mining activities,research of the Company and independent consultants, recent estimates of construction and mining costs and other factors that are set out in the scoping study. Production estimates are basedon mine plans and production schedules, which have been developed by the Company’s personnel and independent consultants. Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknownrisks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of the Company to be materially different from those expressed or implied bysuch forward-looking information, including but not limited to risks related to: timing and availability of external financing on acceptable terms; unexpected events and delays during construction,expansion and start-up; variations in ore grade and recovery rates; receipt and revocation of government approvals; actual results of exploration and mining activities; changes in project parametersas plans continue to be refined; future prices of gold; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry. Althoughmanagement of the Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be otherfactors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differmaterially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking information. The Company does not undertake to update any forward-looking information except in accordance with applicable securities laws.Investors are advised that National Instrument NI 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators requires that each category of mineral reserves and mineral resources be reportedseparately. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Due to the uncertainty of measured, indicated or inferred mineral resources, these mineralresources may never be upgraded to proven and probable mineral reserves.Certain information contained herein may be considered to be future-oriented financial information, which was designed and approved by management of Crocodile Gold for the purposes ofassessing the value of the acquisition. Readers are cautioned that such information may not be appropriate for their use, and readers should consult their financial advisors as appropriate.Bill Nielsen P.Geo.,Vice President of Exploration at Crocodile Gold, is a “qualified person” as such term is defined in National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the technicalinformation and data included in this presentationThis presentation is being made available on a confidential basis only to persons in the United States reasonably believed to be “accredited investors” as defined in Rule 501(a) under the U.S.Securities Act (“Accredited Investors”) and specifically authorized to view this presentation.

Under Canadian rules,estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. United States investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of measured orindicated mineral resources will ever be converted into mineral reserves. United States investors are also cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists, or iseconomically or legally mineable. 2
  3. 3. Cautionary NotesNon-IFRS MeasuresCrocodile Gold believes that investors use certain indicators to assess gold mining companies. The indicators are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered inisolation or as a substitute for measures of performance in accordance with the International Financial Reporting Standards.“Cash Cost per Ounce” is a non-IFRS performance measure which could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency at the operations. It is determined by dividing the operatingexpenses, excluding stock-based compensation allocated to the operating expense and next of silver revenue, by the number of ounces of gold sold. There are variations in the method ofcomputation of “cash cost per ounce” as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies. For more detail on Cash Cost per Ounce determination for Crocodile Gold, pleasevisit or and review the latest Annual Financial Statements issued on March 19, 2012.Note for Pages 7, 8, and 19 : For information regarding mineral resource and reserve estimates, including parameters used to generate the estimates and depletion, please see the technicalreports titled: REPORT ON THE MINERAL RESOURCES & MINERAL RESERVES OF THE NORTHERN TERRITORY GOLD AND BASE METALS PROPERTIES FOR CROCODILE GOLDCORP. dated April 4th, 2011; NI43-101 TECHNICAL REPORT FOSTERVILLE GOLD MINE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA PREPARED FOR CROCODILE GOLD CORP dated April 29 th, 2012; NI43-101 TECHNICAL REPORT STAWELL GOLD MINE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA PREPARED FOR CROCODILE GOLD CORP dated April 9 th, 2012.

The indicators are intended to provide additional information and should not be considered inisolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards.“Cash cost per ounce” is a non-GAAP performance measure that could provide an indication of the mining and processing efficiency and effectiveness at the operations. It is determined by dividingthe operating expenses, excluding stock-based compensation allocated to operating expenses and net of silver revenue, by the number of ounces of gold sold. There are variations in the methodof computation of “cash cost per ounce” as determined by the Company compared with other mining companies.
