- Historic Minearal Resource Estimates*
- Pathfinder reported 1.44mm pounds @ U3O8.325% U3O8 (0.15% cutoff)
- Increases to 1.86mm pounds @ 0.196% (0.05% cutoff)
- Exxon reported the upper sands at 3.67 mm pounds @ 0.15% U308

*Source: Cogema Mining, Inc., Internal Report, June 2004, “Arizona Strip and Moonshine Springs, AZ”, (including map titled: Grade X Thickness (GxT) Contour Method, Mineral Resource Estimate). Cogema’s report provides a history of exploration on the property: Exxon Minerals Corp. began exploration on the property in 1974, and drilled 628 holes before giving up the property in 1981. During that period Exxon made various mineral resource estimates as reported above. Pathfinder Mines (Cogema) held the property from 1982-1992. It is unknown what drilling may have been done by Pathfinder. In 1992 the property became part of a joint venture between Pathfinder and Arizona Strip Partners (Energy Fuels). From 1992 to 1994 only unspecified geophysical work was done. Energy Fuels left the JV in 1995 for reasons unrelated to the Moonshine Springs deposit.
(The Company’s QP has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as a current mineral resource, and the Company is not treating the historical estimate as a current mineral resource and the historic estimates should not be relied upon.)
