* General Notes for Above Resources:

a) The rounding of tonnes may result in apparent differences between tonnes, grade and contained ounces.

b) Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental permitting, legal, title, taxation, sociopolitical, marketing or other relevant issues.
