Answer to Shareholders:

The Company is consistently questioned by shareholders whether or not we are still mining gold. To clarify this matter, we offer the following explanation:

From 1987 to 2007/08, the Company mined underground and surface in frozen placer gold deposits at the Alaska arctic Nolan Gold Mine Property. This work was conducted to assist surface studies in the exploration work to find the source of Alaska's famed "large" Nolan gold nuggets (up to 136 ounces). To view a movie of this work, visit http://www.silverado.com/investors/media-centre/. We succeeded in discovering the source of this gold, and extracted and sold 23,000 ounces of gold (up to 41 ounce pieces) during the process. In 2008/09 we halted the placer (gold nugget) work for the time being and switched our capital resources to the drilling and underground exploration of the source material or lode deposit. This work was successful and resulted in a preliminary feasibility analysis by an independent professional firm which showed that a profitable operation could be achieved (See the January 1, 2009, amended June 1, 2009, NI 43-101 Pre-Feasibility Study for Nolan at http://www.silverado.com/d/09Jan01_NI43-101_amended.pdf, and the August 31, 2010 news release at http://www.silverado.com/nr-2010-08-31/).

The Company has directed all its efforts, with the exception of the $150,000 pre-paid low-rank coal water fuel research project (See September 9, 2010 news release at http://www.silverado.com/nr-2010-09-09/), toward the development of this hard rock project leading to year-round production of gold and antimony (See January 7, 2010 news release at http://www.silverado.com/10jan07-nr/).

We continue to work toward gaining the financing necessary to place the project into commercial production.
