Ares has not completed a Feasibility Study on, nor has Ares completed a Mineral Reserve or Mineral Resource Estimate at the Lost Sheep Mine and as such the financial and technical viability of the Project is at higher risk than if this work had been completed. Based on historical engineering work, geological reports, historical production data and current engineering work completed or in progress by Ares, Ares intends to move forward with the development of this asset. Ares further cautions that it is not basing any production decision on a Feasibility Study of Mineral Reserves demonstrating economic and technical viability, and therefore there is a much greater risk of failure associated with its production decision. Ares has decided to proceed without established Mineral Resources or Mineral Reserves, basing its decision on past production and internal projections.
