About the Sangihe gold project

The Sangihe gold project is located on the Indonesian island of Sangihe, off the northern coast of Sulawesi. Sangihe has an existing National Instrument 43-101 inferred mineral resource of 114,700 indicated and 105,000 inferred ounces of gold, as reported in the company's "Independent Technical Report on the Mineral Resource Estimates of the Binebase and Bawone Deposits, Sangihe Project, North Sulawesi, Indonesia" (May 30, 2017). Readers are cautioned that mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

The company intends to proceed to production without the benefit of first establishing mineral reserves supported by a feasibility study. The company cautions readers that the any production decision made by the company will not be based on a National Instrument 43-101 feasibility study of mineral reserves that demonstrates economic and technical viability, and, as such, there may be involved increased uncertainty and various technological and economic risks.

The company's 70-per-cent interest in the Sangihe mineral tenement contract of work (CoW) is held through PT Tambang Mas Sangihe (TMS). The remaining 30-per-cent interest in TMS is held by three Indonesian corporations. The term of the Sangihe CoW agreement is 30 years upon commencement of the production phase of the project.

Baru has met all the requirements of the Indonesian government and has been granted its environmental permit.
