Notes: This resource estimation was prepared in compliance with the "Best Practices and Reporting Guidelines" set out by CIM and National Instruments 43-101. It was taken from NI 43-101 Technical Report on Resources, EMC Metals Corp. Carlin Vanadium Project, Carlin, Nevada written by Bart Stryhas from SRK Consulting in 2010 for EMC Metals Corp. The resource estimation was calculated using a drillhole database, compiled by EMC Metals verified by SRK and, containing information from 152 drillholes totaling 11,135m (36,525ft). The drillhole depths range from approximately 6m (20ft) to 150m (500ft) with an average of 73m (240ft). The resource estimation was made using an Inverse Distance Weighting Squared interpolation method (ID2). The resource is confined within a 0.1% V2O5 grade shell constructed by generating cross-section polygon outlines at nominal 200ft spacing. A weighted average density of 2.34g/cm3 was used for the mineralized lithologies. The resource was estimated as short tons and then converted to metric tons for this press release.
