Mine Phasing

Ÿ  Currently mining in Phase II while continued mining of floor sand occurs in Phase I.

Ÿ  We anticipate moving into Phase III within 1 year while continuing to mine floor sand in Phase I.

Ÿ  Floor sand extraction is moving at a much slower pace than anticipated. (with only 4 acres of Phase I currently mined out while anticipating having 20 acres mined out at this stage).

Ÿ  Current depth of the pit to the lowest point of the pit floor is 160’ (Mine plan allows for a depth of 180’).

Dust Control

Ÿ  Treatment of roadways with Magnesium Sulfide has been completed.

Ÿ  Use of a substance known as Gorilla Snot has been used to treat the stockpile slopes.

Ÿ  Water truck is circulating daily to moisten roadways and other areas which may be prone to drying out.

Ÿ  Water canons are being used in the active mining areas.

Ÿ  Continued voluntary air quality monitoring continues to occur.
