* NOTE: Readers are advised that the information contained herein regarding a phased Stage I and Stage II project development option is derived from prior NI43-101 feasibility studies dated December 2012 and November 14, 2013 and should not be relied upon. An alternate development plan comprising a single concentrator and dual sources of mill feed from open pit and underground operations is described in a May 2015 NI43-101 Integrated Feasibility Study. No decision has yet been made by management on a development option.
