ABOUT CARBON CREEK
The Carbon Creek deposit is an advanced metallurgical coal development project located in the Peace River Coal District of northeast British Columbia, Canada. The project has a current resource estimate of 468 million tonnes of measured and indicated, with an initial reserve of 121 million tonnes of proven and probable, ASTM Coal Rank mvB coal. The Company released results of an independent Pre-Feasibility Study ("PFS") (including an updated resource estimate) in September 2012, which estimates that the Company will generate a post-tax, undiscounted cash flow of USD 2.1 billion based on production of 4.1 million tonnes of saleable metallurgical coal products per annum.
The Company cautions that the accuracy of resource and reserve estimates is, in part, a function of the quality and quantity of available data and of engineering and geological interpretation and judgment. Given the data available at the time the PFS report was prepared, the estimates presented therein are considered reasonable. However, they should be accepted with the understanding that additional data and analysis available subsequent to the date of the estimates may necessitate revision. These revisions may be material. There is no guarantee that all or any part of the estimated resources will be recoverable. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and there is no assurance that any mineral resources will ultimately be reclassified as proven or probable reserves. Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Inferred mineral resources have been excluded from the PFS for the purposes of mine planning and financial evaluation. Mineral reserves are included in measured and indicated mineral resources.
Investors are urged to read the November 6, 2012 43-101 Technical Report by Norwest Corporation (available on SEDAR or from the Company's website) in its entirety for full details of the PFS, including the assumptions underlying the PFS.
