  • 2. CAUTIONARY STATEMENTForward Looking InformationThis Presentation contains „„forward-looking information‟‟ within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation and the United States Private Securities LitigationReform Act of 1995. Forward-looking information may include, but is not limited to, information with respect to the anticipated production and developments in our operationsin future periods, our planned exploration and development activities, the adequacy of our financial resources, the estimation of mineral resources, realization of mineral resourceestimates, costs and timing of development of the projects we currently intend to acquire (the “Projects”), costs and timing of future exploration, results of future exploration anddrilling, timing and receipt of approvals, consents and permits under applicable legislation, our executive compensation approach and practice, the composition of our board ofdirectors and committees, and adequacy of financial resources. Wherever possible, words such as „„plans‟‟, „„expects‟‟ or „„does notexpect‟‟, „„budget‟‟, „„scheduled‟‟, „„estimates‟‟, „„forecasts‟‟, „„anticipate‟‟ or „„does not anticipate‟‟, „„believe‟‟, „„intend‟‟ and similar expressions or statements that certainactions, events or results „„may‟‟, „„could‟‟, „„would‟‟, „„might‟‟ or „„will‟‟ be taken, occur or be achieved, have been used to identify forward-looking information. Statementsconcerning mineral resource estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking information to the extent that they involve estimates of the mineralization that will beencountered if the property is developed. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect topredictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or performance (often, but not always, using words or phrases such as„„expects‟‟, „„anticipates‟‟, „„plans‟‟, „„projects‟‟, „„estimates‟‟, „„assumes‟‟, „„intends‟‟, „„strategy‟‟, „„goals‟‟, „„objectives‟‟, „„potential‟‟ or variations thereof, or stating that certainactions, events or results „„may‟‟, „„could‟‟, „„would‟‟, „„might‟‟ or „„will‟‟ be taken, occur or be achieved, or the negative of any of these terms and similar expressions) are notstatements of historical fact and may be forward-looking information. Forward-looking information is subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and otherfactors that could cause actual events or results to differ from those expressed or implied by the forward-looking information. Many of these risks are listed and described in ourfinal short-form prospectus dated March 19, 2012 (the “Prospectus”), which is available for review on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under our profile. Although we have attemptedto identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause resultsnot to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differmaterially from those anticipated in such information. Forward-looking information involves statements about the future and is inherently uncertain, and our actual achievementsor other future events or conditions may differ materially from those reflected in the forward-looking information due to a variety of risks, uncertainties and otherfactors, including, without limitation, those referred to in the Prospectus under the heading „„Risk Factors‟‟. Our forward-looking information is based on the beliefs, expectationsand opinions of management on the date the statements are made, and we do not assume any obligation to update forward-looking information, whether as a result of newinformation, future events or otherwise, other than as required by applicable law. For the reasons set forth above, prospective investors should not place undue reliance onforward-looking information.National Instrument 43-101Technical and scientific information contained herein relating to the Projects is derived from National Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) compliant technical reports (“Reports”)“Technical Report and Updated Preliminary Economic Assessment of the Brucejack Project” dated February 20, 2012 “Mineral Resources Update Technical Report” dated April3, 2012, “Mineral Resources Update Technical Report” dated September 18, 2012 and “Mineral Resources Update Technical Report” dated November 20, 2012. We have filed theReports under our profile at www.sedar.com. Technical and scientific information not contained within the Reports for the Projects have been prepared under the supervision ofMr. Kenneth C. McNaughton, an independent “qualified person” under NI 43-101.This presentation uses the terms “measured resources”, “indicated resources” (together “M&I”) and “inferred resources”. Although these terms are recognized and required byCanadian regulations (under NI 43-101), the United States Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves donot have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing, or other relevant issues. There is no guarantee that all or any part of the mineral resource will be converted into mineral reserves.In addition, “inferred resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of aninferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or prefeasibility studies, or economic studies, except for a Preliminary Assessment as defined under NI 43-101. Investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferredresource exists, or is economically or legally mineable.CurrencyUnless otherwise indicated, all dollar values herein are in Canadian $.2

The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected byenvironmental, permitting, legal, marketing, or other relevant issues. The Mineral Resources inthis news release were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy andPetroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions andGuidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted byCIM Council.(2) The quantity and grade of reported Inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain innature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred Resources as anIndicated or Measured Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result inupgrading them to an Indicated or Measured Mineral Resource category.(3) Contained metal may differ due to rounding.(4) The Mineral Resource estimate is defined using 5 m by 5 by 5 m blocks in the well drilledportion of West Zone (5 m by 10 m drilling or better) and 10 m by 10 m by 10 m blocks in theremainder of West Zone and in Valley of the Kings.(5) The gold equivalent value is defined as AuEq=Au + Ag/53

The estimate of Mineral Resources may be materially affected byenvironmental, permitting, legal, marketing, or other relevant issues. The Mineral Resources inthis news release were estimated using the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy andPetroleum (CIM), CIM Standards on Mineral Resources and Reserves, Definitions andGuidelines prepared by the CIM Standing Committee on Reserve Definitions and adopted byCIM Council.(2) The quantity and grade of reported Inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain innature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these Inferred Resources as anIndicated or Measured Mineral Resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result inupgrading them to an Indicated or Measured Mineral Resource category.(3) Contained metal may differ due to rounding.(4) The Mineral Resource estimate is defined using 5 m by 5 by 5 m blocks in the well drilledportion of West Zone (5 m by 10 m drilling or better) and 10 m by 10 m by 10 m blocks in theremainder of West Zone ,Valley of the Kings, Galena Hill and parts of the Shore Zone, and by20m by 20m by 20m in the poorer informed Bridge Zone, Gossan Hill and parts of ShoreZone(5) The gold equivalent value is defined as AuEq=Au + Ag/53
