Preliminary Economic Assessment NI43-101 Compliant includes inferred mineral resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations

applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is no certainty that the preliminary assessment will be realized

Inferred 0.65/2.0 20,265 1.76 1,149


A total of 1,101.9 m of surface trenching in 55 trenches, 443.1 m of adit sampling in 4 adits and 42,326.2 m of diamond and RC drilling in 436 drill holes were used in the resource with sample spacing’s that were less than 30 m for Measured resources, less than 40 metres for Indicated resources and less than 195 m for Inferred resources except for Inferred resources below 200 m from surface and for the northern two vein systems that used drill spacing’s of 196 m

A base cutoff grade of 0.65 g/t Au was used for reporting resources above a depth of 200 m from surface and a cutoff grade of 2.0 g/t Au was used for reporting resources below 200 m from surface

Corcoesto 2011 Resource Estimate

+40,000m of in-fill drilling completed since the above resource estimate. (Focused on conversion of Inferred resources to Measured and Indicated). Updated resource estimate Q1, 2013

*West African average cut-off is 0.4g/t which represents +1.2M ounces Gold

1. CIM definition standards were followed for the resource estimate.

2. The 2012 resource models used ordinary kriging (OK) grade estimation within a three-dimensional block model with mineralized zones defined by

wireframed solids.

3. A base cutoff grade of 0.7 g/t Au was used for reporting resources with a capping of gold grades at 18 g/t.

4. A density of 2.45 g/cm3 was applied.

5. Numbers may not add exactly due to rounding.

6. Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have economic viability
