Cautionary Statement: Mineral Resources that are not Mineral Reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
The Resource Study was undertaken by SGS Canada Inc - SGS Geostat Group [“SGS”] with Indicated Resources and Inferred Resources estimated and classified using CIM Standards and a block modeling interpolation with geo-statistical analysis. SGS recognizes that there are areas within the 23 modelled structures, and as extensions to these structures, which require additional drilling to meet the Resource criteria applied in their evaluation. These additional targets with further exploration drilling may provide additional tonnage of 20 to 50 million tonnes grading 100 to 150 g/t AgEQ. This stated range of quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in these target areas being delineated as a mineral resource.
The San Diego Property is a 50-50 joint venture between Golden Tag and Golden Minerals Company (AUMN: NYSEAmex; AUM:TSX). Golden Tag is the operator and has an option to increase its’ interest to 60% by funding additional exploration on the property.
The Resource Estimate for the San Diego property was undertaken by SGS Canada Inc- SGS Geostat Group under the management and supervision of M. Claude Duplessis, Ing., Ms. Kateri Marchand, P.Geo., M. Guy Desharnais Ph.D, P.Geo. and M. Gilbert Rousseau, Ing., Independent Qualified Persons (QP) in accordance with NI 43-101.
David Rigg, P.Geo and CEO of Golden Tag, Qualified Person (QP) in accordance with NI 43-101, has prepared this press release. MM. Duplessis, Marchand, Desharnais and Rousseau have read and approved the content of this press release as it pertains to the disclosed mineral resource estimate.
