ADDITIONAL RESOURCES NOT INCLUDED IN THE FINANCIAL ANALYSIS OF THIS TECHNICAL REPORT

Six underground deposits were classified as Reserves in a Technical Report in July 30, 2008 (PAH, 2008). Of the six deposits only one deposit, R-190, has been included in the financial analysis of this Technical Report. The remaining five 2008 Underground Reserves were not included in the financial analysis of this Technical Report and have been reclassified as Measured and Indicated Resources.
