Outlook

The majority of the planned 2014 capital expenditure program has been completed and fully funded. Remaining minor capital investment for the balance of 2014 related to infrastructure upgrades is expected be funded from cashflow. Excess free cash flow generated will be used to progressively pay down debt.

We remain focussed on risk management of our existing assets and ways to protect and maximize shareholder value. The Company is also considering other strategic alternatives which may include re-financing, merger or outright sale of the Company. No financial advisor has been appointed at this time.

This press release should be read in conjunction with the unaudited consolidated interim financial statements for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2014 and the associated management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the same period together with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and management's discussion and analysis (MD&A) for the year ended December 31, 2013, including, without limitation, the cautionary statements regarding forward-looking information contained therein.
