1. Reserves for the Neves-Corvo mine are estimated using cut off
grades of 5.58% zinc and 1.91% copper. Resources are estimated
using cut off grades of 3.3% zinc, and 2.0% copper. The reserves
and resources are calculated by the mine's geologists and audited
by Wardell Armstrong International (WAI). The Qualified Person for
the 2006 Reserve and resources estimates is WAI personnel Mark L.
Owen, Associate Director and Principal Geologist, assisted by David
Chilcott,Associate tof WAI, and Senior Mining Engineer.
2. The 2006 Aljustrel zinc Mineral Reserves and Resources are
estimated using cut-off grades of 4.5% zinc, 4.0% zinc and 4.0%
zinc for the Feitais, Moinho, and Estacao deposits respectively.
The copper mineral reserves are estimated using a 1.5% copper cut-
off. The reserves and resources were calculated by the mine's
geologists and audited by Wardell Armstrong International (WAI).
The Qualified Person for the 2006 reserves and resources is Mark L.
