The current inferred gold resource at the Lamaque property is 385,656 gold ounces (2,114,742 tons at average grade of 5.67 g/t gold - uncut) and an indicated resource of 101,794 gold ounces (659,959 tons at an average grade of 4.80 g/t gold - uncut) as reported in the NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Lamaque Property prepared by Geologica Groupe-Conseil Inc. dated June 23, 2011 and available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

The Lamaque Gold Project's north-eastern boundary lies next to the producing Sigma Mine and pit which has produced 4.7 million ounces of gold from 1935 to the present and has reported significant gold resources and reserves with potential to add more as new modeling processes are implemented and new geological targets defined.

The Lamaque Property is located in the Val-d'Or gold camp in Quebec about 550 km northwest of Montréal, Quebec. The property consists of 4 contiguous mining concessions and twenty (20) mining claims for a total of 1,459 hectares, owned 100% by Integra.
