Forward looking information

Zgounder Silver Mine

The decision to commence production activities at the Zgounder Silver Mine during the development stage period was not based on a feasibility study of mineral reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability, but rather on a pre-feasibility study. Accordingly, there is increased uncertainty and economic and technical risks of failure associated with this production decision. Production and economic variables may vary considerably, due to the absence of a complete and detailed site analysis according to and in accordance with NI 43-101.

The Corporation still considers the Zgounder Mine in development stage despite the positive production results achieved. The criteria and thresholds established by the Company have not yet been achieved to justify the transfer of into commercial production. Despite that the property is presently generating positive cash flows, the asset is not operating in the manner intended by management. The principal criterion not yet satisfied is the completion of the capital expenditure program (mainly the installation of flotation cells) at the mine. The Corporation has experienced some delays for the acquisition and implementation of the flotation cells. With the proceeds of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and equity financings closed in 2016, this capital expenditure project is now underway. Management expects that the commercial production will start in the beginning of Q2-2018.
