--  Development of the decline and planned underground development;

--  Infill drilling from the planned underground development to increase
    confidence in the resource model and mitigate mining risk;

--  Completion of a Definitive Feasibility Study; and

--  Exploration of the 320 km2 Santa Rosa Gold Project, including testing
    with core drilling of a number of prospective targets identified to

The PEA was prepared by Mine Development Associates in accordance with the definitions in Canadian National Instrument 43-101. The PEA is considered preliminary in nature. It includes Inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative to have the economic considerations applied that would enable classification as mineral reserves. There is no certainty that the conclusions within the PEA will be realised. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
