Forward Looking Information

This website contains “forward-looking information” within the meaning of applicable Canadian securities legislation and “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively, “forward-looking information”).

In certain cases, forward-looking information can be identified by the use of words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “budget”, “target”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “determine” or “believes”, or variations or the negative of such words and phrases, or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “whether to”, “would”, “should”, “might” or “will be taken”, “occur” or “be achieved” or the negative of these terms or comparable terminology. By their very nature, forward-looking information involves known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Corporation to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking information.

  • Forward-looking information includes, but is not limited to, statements regarding:
  • analyses and other information based on expectations of future performance and planned work programs;
  • possible events, conditions or financial performance that is based on assumptions about future economic conditions and courses of action;
  • timing, costs and potential success of future activities on the Corporation’s properties, including but not limited to development and operating costs in the event that a production decision is made;
  • potential results of exploration, development and environmental protection and remediation activities;
  • future outlook and goals;
  • permitting time lines and requirements, regulatory and legal changes, requirements for additional capital, requirements for additional water rights and the potential effect of proposed notices of environmental conditions relating to mineral claims;
  • planned expenditures and budgets and the execution thereof;
  • evaluation of the potential impact of future accounting changes; and
  • estimates concerning recovery of accounts receivable, share-based compensation and carrying value of properties.

Statements concerning mineral resource and mineral reserve estimates may also be deemed to constitute forward-looking information to the extent that such statements involve estimates of the mineralization that may be encountered if a property is developed. Any forward-looking information contained herein is stated as of the date of this document and Midas Gold does not intend, and does not assume any obligation, to update such forward-looking information to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events unless required to do so by law or regulation.

With respect to forward-looking information contained herein, the Corporation has applied several material factors or assumptions including, but not limited to, certain assumptions as to production rates, operating cost, recovery and metal costs; that any additional financing needed will be available on reasonable terms; the exchange rates for the U.S. and Canadian currencies will be consistent with the Corporation’s expectations; that the current exploration, restoration, development, environmental other objectives concerning the Project can be achieved and that the Corporation’s other corporate activities will proceed as expected; that the current price and demand for gold and other metals will be sustained or will improve; that general business and economic conditions will not change in a materially adverse manner and that all necessary governmental approvals for the planned exploration, restoration, development and environmental protection activities on the Project will be obtained in a timely manner and on acceptable terms; and the continuity of economic and political conditions and operations of the Corporation.

The forward-looking information contained herein is subject to a variety of known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause actual events or results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. In addition to those discussed in the Corporation’s public disclosure record, such risks and other factors include, among others, those related to:

  • the industry-wide risks and project-specific risks identified in the PFS and summarized in the Corporation’s news release dated December 15, 2014;
  • fluctuations in capital markets and share prices;
  • the Corporation’s ability to obtain financing to advance its mineral properties and the expected use of proceeds;
  • the Corporation’s dependence on one mineral project;
  • the Corporation’s dependence on key personnel;
  • the Corporation’s operations and contractual obligations;
  • changes in exploration programs based upon results of exploration;
  • changes in estimated mineral reserves or mineral resources;
  • future prices of metals;
  • availability of third party contractors or equipment;
  • failure of equipment to operate as anticipated;
  • accidents, effects of weather and other natural phenomena and other risks associated with the mining industry;
  • the Corporation’s principal property being located in the U.S., including political, economic and regulatory uncertainty;
  • environmental risks, including environmental matters under U.S. federal and Idaho rules and regulations;
  • changes in environmental laws and regulations and changes in the application of standards pursuant to existing laws and regulations which may increase costs of doing business and restrict the Corporation’s activities and operations;
  • impact of environmental remediation requirements and the terms of existing and potential consent decrees on the Corporation’s planned exploration and development activities on the Project;
  • the Corporation’s mineral properties being subject to prior unregistered agreements, transfers, or claims and other defects in title;
  • community relations;
  • delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing;
  • the nature of mineral exploration and mining and the uncertain commercial viability of certain mineral deposits;
  • the Corporation’s lack of operating revenues;
  • governmental regulations and the ability to obtain necessary licenses and permits;
  • currency fluctuations (particularly the Canadian dollar and United States dollar)
  • estimates used in the Corporation’s consolidated financial statements proving to be incorrect; and
  • a cyber security incident that could adversely affect the Corporation’s ability to operate its business.

This is not an exhaustive list of the risks and factors that may affect the Corporation’s forward-looking information. Although the Corporation has attempted to identify important factors that could affect the Corporation and may cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking Information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking information will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking information. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on such forward- looking information.

Compliance with NI 43-101

The technical information on this website has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (NI 43-101) and reviewed and approved by Stephen P. Quin, P. Geo., President and CEO of the Corporation and a Qualified Person (as hereinafter defined).

The Prefeasibility Study (PFS)Technical Report dated December 15, 2014 was compiled by M3 Engineering & Technology Corp. (M3) for Midas Gold. The following individuals are the qualified persons, as defined in NI 43-101, responsible for writing the report:

  • Conrad E. Huss, P.E.
  • Garth D. Kirkham, P.Geo.
  • Christopher J. Martin, C.Eng.
  • John M. Marek, P.E.
  • Allen R. Anderson, P.E.
  • Richard C. Kinder, P.E.
  • Peter E. Kowalewski, P.E.

Midas Gold commissioned this study to provide a PFS-level assessment of the Project. The following companies also contributed to the PFS Technical Report (as defined herein), excerpts of which are included herein:

  • Kirkham Geosystems Ltd. (geology, drilling, data verification and mineral resource estimates);
  • Blue Coast Metallurgy Ltd. (mineral processing and metallurgical testing);
  • Independent Mining Consultants Inc. (mineral reserves, mine planning and related capital and operating costs);
  • Allen R. Anderson Metallurgical Engineer Inc. (recovery methods);
  • HDR Engineering Inc. (access road); and
  • Tierra Group International Ltd. (climatology, hydrology, tailings and water management infrastructure, closure and related matters).

Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral Resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These Mineral Resource estimates include Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. There is also no certainty that these Inferred Mineral Resources will be converted to the Measured Resource and Indicated Resource categories through further drilling, or into Mineral Reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

The Mineral Reserves and Resources at Stibnite are contained within areas that have seen historic disturbance resulting from prior mining activities and which have been subject to a number of regulatory actions and consent decrees in respect of these past activities. In order for the Corporation to advance its interests at Stibnite, the project will be subject to a number of Federal, State and local laws and regulations and will require permits to conduct its activities.

For readers to fully understand the technical information on the Stibnite Gold Project they should read the Technical Report (available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com under the Corporation’s profile) in its entirety, including all qualifications, assumptions and exclusions that relate to the technical information set out on this website. The Technical Report is intended to be read as a whole, and sections should not be read or relied upon out of context. The technical information in the Technical Report is subject to the assumptions and qualifications contained in the Technical Report.
