Statements in this press release, other than purely historical information, including statements relating to the Company's future plans and objectives or expected results, may include forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements are based on numerous assumptions and are subject to all of the risks and uncertainties inherent in resource exploration and development.  As a result, actual results may vary materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.

 

Gold equivalent grades have been calculated using the following formula:  AuEq = Au(g/t) + [Cu(%)} x {%Recoverable Cu / %Recoverable Au} x {Net Cu Price/Net Au Price} x {%Payable Cu / %Payable Au x 22.0462 x 31.1035].  Metal recoveries are estimates based on metallurgical results announced in Bellhaven’s news release dated Nov. 15, 2011.  Net metal prices for gold and copper are the long-term forward curve metal price minus refining charge.  Metal prices based on the long-term forward curve are as of May 8, 2013 (US$1482 for gold and $3.40/lb for copper).  Metal refinery charges and % payable metal by the smelter are estimates based on third-party consultants.  Metal prices, refinery charges and % payable metal are not constant and are subject to change.  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 resources will be converted into mineral reserves.
