The Enchi Resource Estimate dated July 12, 2012 was prepared by Todd McCracken, P.Geo. of Tetra Tech., who is independent of Edgewater and a Qualified Person ("QP") as defined by National Instrument 43-101. CIM definition standards were followed for the resource estimate. The 2012 resource models used ordinary kriging (OK) grade estimation within a three-dimensional block model with mineralized zones defined by wireframed solids. A capping of gold grades at 18 g/t and a density of 2.45 g/cm3 was applied. Mineral Resources that are not mineral reserves do not have economic viability
