(1) The report issued by Deloitte LLP ("Deloitte") on April 30, 2014, utilized the resource and geologic information developed by Senergy (GB) Limited ("Senergy") on June 25, 2013 with an effective date of May 30, 2013. (Please refer to the Company's press release issued on June 27, 2013 for discussion on the risks and level of uncertainty associated with recovery of the resources, the significant positive and negative factors relevant to the estimate of the resources.).
