1.  CIM definitions are followed for classification of Mineral Resources.  
2.  Mineral Resources are estimated using a gold price of US$1,200 per     
    ounce and a silver price of US$21 per ounce.                           
3.  Totals may not represent the sum of the parts due to rounding.         
4.  The Mineral Resources have been prepared by Scott E. Wilson in         
    conformity with CIM "Estimation of Mineral Resource and Mineral        
    Reserves Best Practices" guidelines and are reported in accordance with
    the Canadian Securities Administrators NI 43-101. Mineral resources are
    not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability.  
    There is no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resource will
    be converted into mineral reserve.                                     

The technical report is consistent in all material respects with the Mineral Resource announced in the February 24, 2014 news release. A copy of the report can be found at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website.

Reconciliation to the Previous Mineral Resource Estimate Announced January 27, 2014

The mineral resource estimate disclosed above considers data not considered at the time of the original mineral resource estimate announced by the Company on January 27, 2014. Specifically, at Three Hills an additional 25 holes were used in the mineral resource calculation. Mr. Wilson also completed an analysis of the Hasbrouck database resulting in an updated mineral resource estimate for the Hasbrouck Deposit. At Three Hills the new estimate contains 8,504,000 measured and indicated tons grading 0.018 opt Au with 11,002,000 inferred tons grading 0.014 opt Au using a 0.005 opt Au cutoff. The previously announced estimate contained an indicated 5,736,000 tons 0.023 opt Au and 10,600 inferred tons grading 0.015 opt Au using a 0.01 opt Au cutoff. At Hasbrouck the updated resource contains 69,688,000 measured and indicated tons grading 0.012 opt Au and 0.260 opt Ag with 58,921,000 inferred tons grading 0.007 opt Au and 0.189 opt Ag using a 0.005 opt AuEq cutoff. The previously announced estimate contained 128,608,000 inferred tons grading 0.009 opt Au and 0.228 opt Ag using a 0.005 opt AuEq cutoff. Both estimates used the same formula for calculating AuEq, AuEq = Au + (Ag/57.14) The February 21, 2014 resource estimate supersedes all previous estimates.

The Mineral Resources have been prepared by Scott E. Wilson in conformity with generally accepted CIM "Estimation of Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserves Best Practices" guidelines and are reported in accordance with the Canadian Securities Administrators NI 43-101. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. There is no certainty that all or any part of the mineral resource estimate will be converted into mineral reserves.
