Notes:

1. Regional Exploration (Mapping and Surface Sampling) – Surface sampling has been actively conducted across the project area.

2. Geophysics (EM Survey) – A TDEM / Magnetometer / Radiometric airborne survey was completed in March 2014 by Prospectair Geosurveys and the final results have been reported by the Company.

3. Assays (Surface and Core Samples) – The aforementioned surface samples were analyzed by ActLabs of Ancaster, Ontario and the results have been reported by the Company and are summarized below.

4. Metallurgical Tests – Preliminary metallurgical tests on four samples have been completed. These tests were conducted at both SGS and ActLabs in Ontario. A microscopic analysis of in situ flakes was also conducted by RJ Lee Group. Additional samples are currently being processed by SGS.

5. Environmental and Reclamation – Reclamation work has been completed as required.

The Company will spend an additional US$287,787 to complete the Phase 1 work program.

The assay results from an initial round of 424 samples were reported in a news release dated March 3, 2014. The table below summarizes the results and provides the true width of continuous channel samples whose grade exceeded 3.0%Cg. In addition, 129 samples are currently being processed by ActLabs. An additional 120 samples are currently awaiting shipment to the lab for assaying.

The preliminary results of the airborne geophysical survey were reported in a news release dated April 8, 2014. The survey showed a strong EM response over the drill grid with good correlation with the known limits of mineralization. In addition, several areas showing strong EM responses with associated magnetic lows were identified and are currently the subject of further investigation.

No results from the metallurgical testing have been released to date due to the small number of samples processed. The Company has sent additional samples for metallurgical testing and will announce results once the data is received.

The steps required to complete phase one of the exploration program are as follows: to expand surface sampling and mapping into areas identified as high-priority by the airborne geophysical survey; to conduct ground geophysics over areas where surface sampling has indicated graphite as the conductor in the airborne EM survey; to prepare pads for a preliminary drilling program using a sonic drill; and to continue metallurgical testing of both the defined Coosa mineral resource estimate as well as new areas defined by sonic drilling.

Further to the press release issued by the Company on May 1, 2014 appointing Ron S. Roda as Chief Executive Officer, Corporate Secretary and Director, he has also been appointed a member of the audit committee.

Scott E. Wilson and Stuart Redwood, independent Qualified Persons for the Company, as defined by National Instrument 43-101, have reviewed and approved the contents of this press release.
