(1) Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves have not demonstrated economic viability. The estimate

of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical,

marketing, or other relevant issues. It is noted that no specific issues have been identified as yet.

 

(2) The quantity and grade of reported Inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain in nature and there has

been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred resources as an Indicated or Measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an Indicated or Measured mineral

resource category.

 

(3) The mineral resources in this report were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and

Petroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions and Guidelines prepared

by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted by the CIM Council.

 

(4) The 3.5 g/t AuEq resource cut-off grade was derived from the approximate Jan 31/16 two year trailing average Au price of

US$1,200/oz and Cu price of US$2.75/lb,US$/C$ exchange rate of 0.83, 90% & 85%  respective Au and Cu process recoveries,  C$35/t process cost,C$75/t mining cost and C$30/t G&A cost. AuEq g/t = Au g/t + (Cu% x 1.5)

(5) Effective date of the resource estimate is March 24, 2016.

 

In addition, Golden Dawn has commissioned P&E Mining Consultants Inc. to conduct a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) based on these resources in order to evaluate re-opening the mine. Results will be announced shortly.

Technical disclosure in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Eugene Puritch, P.Eng. of P&E Mining Consultants Inc., an Independent Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. An NI 43-101 updated mineral resource estimate technical report will be filed on SEDAR by April 8 2016.
