The FS was led by Shore with significant contributions from independent mining, processing and design consultants which include: P&E Mining Consultants Inc. (“P&E”); Metso Minerals Industries Inc. (“Metso”) and AECOM Canada Ltd. (“AECOM”). A number of other independent consulting firms and potential vendors also provided their study results to Shore and P&E for use in developing the FS. All currency amounts are quoted in Canadian Dollars, unless otherwise stated. The FS aims to present an economic model which is within +/-15 percent accuracy. Since work commenced on the FS, the price of rough diamonds has continued to increase and our diamond consultants, WWW International Diamond Consultants Ltd. (“WWW”), inform us that current rough diamond prices are on average approximately 30 to 35 percent higher than the February 2011 pricebook used in this FS and as such, are in agreement that the FS is presented as a Base Case using the more conservative February 2011 pricebook Model diamond prices plus 15 percent, and Case 1, which is calculated using the February 2011 pricebook High Model diamond prices. Case 1 is presented for comparative purposes only.
