HOT MADEN GOLD-COPPER PROJECT – NEW
 
HIGHLIGHTS

The Hot Maden project is located 1,050 km E of Istanbul and 130 km NE of Erzurum in north-eastern Turkey, and consists of 4 licences (1 operating and 3 exploration) totalling 7,394 Ha (73 square kilometres).
A highly successful 2015 drill campaign led to the release on August 18 of a maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for the high-grade gold-copper mineralisation at Hot Maden. The Mineral Resource Estimate was prepared by independent mining consultants RungePincockMinarco (“RPM”), and was based on assay results received for drill holes up to, and including, HTD17, which was completed on June 25. The total maiden Mineral Resource Estimate comprises:

Indicated Category – 2.033 Million Oz Gold Equivalent** (“AuEq”) 4.71 million tonnes (“Mt”) at 10 grammes per tonne (“g/t”) gold and 2.2% copper, for a gold equivalent grade* of 13.4 g/t.
Inferred Category – 0.968 Million Oz AuEq** 3.65 Mt at 5.5 g/t gold and 1.8% copper, for a gold equivalent grade* of 8.2 g/t.
Total Hot Maden Mineral Resource (all categories) stands at – 3.01 Million Oz AuEq** for a gold equivalent grade* of 11.2 g/t.

High grade gold-copper mineralisation was first intersected at Hot Maden in the Phase I diamond drill program, which was completed in January, 2015 and included the following key intercepts:
HTD-04 intersected 103m @ 9 g/t Au + 2.2% Cu from 25m, associated with silicified andesite breccias and massive sulphides (pyrite-chalcopyrite). This intersection included a significantly higher grade massive sulphide zone averaging 3 g/t Au + 3.3% Cu over 33.4m from 79.8m downhole.
HTD-05: Collared 100m SE of HTD-04, HTD-05 returned another impressive intercept with 82m @ 20.4 g/t Au & 1.9% Cu from 147m downhole, including a bonanza 13m @ 88 g/t Au & 2.5% Cu from 150m.
The Phase II diamond drill program commenced in April, 2015, and as at July 27, 2015, a total of ten holes (HTD-08 to HTD-17) had been completed and assays received and 3 holes (HTD-18 to HTD-20) were either in progress or had assay results pending. These holes: i) confirmed the sub-vertical nature and continuity of the mineralisation intersected in the discovery holes HTD-04 and HTD-05, ii) extended mineralisation to approximately 280m in a north-south direction, and iii) indicated a plunge in the mineralized body towards the south.
Drilling has also identified three distinct subzones, defined primarily by gold-copper grades, within the main Hot Maden mineralised body: i) an ultra-high grade Au-Cu zone, which tends to lie on the eastern margin of the mineralised body, ii) a central high grade Au-Cu zone, and iii) a broader, lower grade (>2g/t AuEq* cut-off) gold-copper envelope.
Mineralisation related phases include chalcopyrite, pyrite/marcasite, sphalerite, galena, native gold, and traces of bornite. Concentrations of deleterious elements such as arsenic, mercury and antimony are low.
Preliminary metallurgical studies indicate high recoveries of copper and gold in rougher concentrate tests, suggesting that flotation would be a preferred processing technique.
Turkish partner Lidya Madencilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. (“Lidya”) is currently earning into a 70% interest in the Hot Maden project. At the commencement of the Phase II drill program, Lidya was required to invest a further USD 1.8M in exploration and make additional cash payments totalling USD 0.35M to Mariana in order to complete the earn-in.
