A total of 7,300 tons of mineralized material containing approximately 6,700 Au ounces were extracted during development of the 5360 and 5420 levels of the Karen Vein during 2Q2014. The average mined grade was 31.5 g/t (0.9 opt) Au over an average mining width of 3.0 m (9.9 ft).

The Company developed 97 m (317 ft) along strike on the 5360 level during 2Q2014. The weighted average vein width on this level is 0.8 m (2.6 ft) with an average grade of 117.6 g/t (3.4 opt) Au. On a second level, approximately 18.3 m (60.0 ft) above, the company developed 93.0 m (306.0 ft) along strike on the 5420 level during 2Q2014. The average vein width on this level is 1.3 m (4.2 ft) with an average grade of 116.6 g/t (3.4 opt) Au. Channel samples from the Karen Vein, taken north and south of the 5360 and 5420 accesses, are summarized and detailed in Tables 1 and 2.

Cautionary Note Regarding Technical Information and Forward-looking Information

A production decision at the Midas mine was made by previous operators of the mine prior to the completion of the acquisition of the Midas project by Klondex and Klondex made a decision to continue production subsequent to the acquisition. This decision by Klondex to continue production and, to the knowledge of Klondex, the production decision made by the previous operator were not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability prepared in accordance with National Instrument 43-101. Readers are cautioned that there is increased uncertainty and higher risk of economic and technical failure associated with such production decisions.
