About Midas Gold and the Golden Meadows Project in the Stibnite-Yellow District
Midas Gold, through its wholly owned subsidiaries including Midas Gold Inc., MGI Acquisition Corporation and Idaho Gold Resources, LLC, is focused on the exploration and, if warranted, development of deposits in the Stibnite-Yellow Pine district of central Idaho. The principal gold deposits identified to date within the Project are the Hangar Flats, West End and Yellow Pine deposits, all of which are associated with important structural corridors. Independent mineral resource estimates are detailed in a technical report entitled “Preliminary Economic Assessment Technical Report for the Golden Meadows Project, Idaho” dated effective August 15, 2012 and filed on SEDAR on September 21, 2012, which is available on Midas Gold’s website at www.midasgoldcorp.com or under Midas Gold’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. This Preliminary Economic Assessment outlines a concept for the development of a large scale, long-life, low-cost open pit gold mining operation producing gold and by-product antimony based on the estimated mineral resource, as well as outlining a number of opportunities for potential enhancement of the conceptual project.
