National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure.
Exploration activities at KSM are being conducted by Seabridge personnel under the supervision of William E. Threlkeld PGeo., Senior Vice President of Seabridge and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Mr. Threlkeld has reviewed and approved this news release. An ongoing and rigorous quality control/quality assurance protocol was employed during the 2012 program including blank and reference standards in every batch of assays. Cross-check analyses were conducted at a second external laboratory on 10% of the samples. Samples were assayed using fire assay atomic adsorption methods for gold, and ICP methods with atomic adsorption on concentrations over detection limits for other elements.
This initial drilling on deep core zone targets is orientated to optimize the depth penetration and to intersect the identified targets. Insufficient information is available on the orientation of these targets consequently it is not known if these drill intersection represent true widths of mineralized zones.
Seabridge holds a 100% interest in several North American gold projects. The Company's principal assets are the KSM property located near Stewart, British Columbia, Canada and the Courageous Lake gold project located in Canada's Northwest Territories. For a breakdown of Seabridge's mineral reserves and mineral resources by category please visit the Company's website at www.seabridgegold.net/resources.php.
All reserve and resource estimates reported by the Corporation were calculated in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
