Vista’s 100% owned Mt Todd gold project1 is located in Northern Territory, Australia, approximately 56 kilometers by road northwest of Katherine and approximately 250 kilometers southeast of Darwin.

Mt Todd contains more than 7.4 million ounces gold (measured and indicated categories) with significant exploration and district expansion potential across the project’s more than 140,227 hectares of exploration licenses and mineral leases.



In French Guiana, Columbus is developing its 100% owned Montagne d’Or Gold Deposit, which hosts a NI-43-101 in-pit gold resource of 3.9 million ounces Indicated and 1.1 million ounces Inferred (83.2 million tonnes @ 1.45 g/t gold, and 22.4 million tonnes @ 1.55 g/t gold, respectively, at a 0.4 g/t cut-off), with considerable expansion potential on strike and at depth.



Excellon’s 100%-owned La Platosa Mine in Durango is Mexico’s highest grade silver mine, with lead and zinc by-products making it one of the lowest cash cost silver mines in the country. The Company is positioning itself to capitalize on undervalued projects by focusing on increasing La Platosa’s profitable silver production and near-term mineable resources.



Alexco owns the historic Keno Hill Silver District, located in Canada’s Yukon Territory. The Bellekeno silver mine, one of the world’s highest-grade silver mines with a production grade of up to 1,000 grams per tonne, commenced commercial production at the beginning of calendar year 2011 and was Canada’s only operating primary silver mine from 2011 to 2013. Alexco is currently in interim suspension of operations at Bellekeno in order to decrease costs and reposition the District for long-term, sustainable operations. Alexco is rapidly exploring other promising high-grade silver prospects on its other District properties, and has discovered two important new deposits – the Flame & Moth and Bermingham. Three mines are already well into development, with a fourth waiting for a development decision. The continuing discoveries of some of the largest deposits ever in the District point to the prolific and prospective nature of Keno Hill.



Timmins Gold Corp is positioned for future growth as a gold production and development company in Mexico. The Company owns and operates the San Francisco open pit, heap leach gold mine in Sonora and is developing its two economically robust growth projects, the Ana Paula gold project in Guerrero and the Caballo Blanco gold project in Veracruz.

Recent acquisition of the El Sauzal mill and sundry equipment for the Ana Paula gold project will yield major savings in capex and has immediately and positively impacted the already robust economics at Ana Paula.

Given the grade and capital efficiency of Ana Paula coupled with in-house Mexican expertise, the corporation is highly confident much value will be added to the benefit of our shareholders.
