** Copper equivalent calculated using US$2.50/lb Cu, US$1100/oz Au and US$14.00/lb Mo and is not adjusted for mining and metallurgical recoveries as these remain uncertain. The formula used is as follows: CuEQ = (Cu% x 22.0462 x 2.50) + (Au g/t x 1100.00/ 31.1035) + (Mo% x 22.0462 x 14.00
Rhenium values have not been used in the cutoff grade or Cu Equivalent calculations
The Red Dog Property, which lies 10km by road from the Hushamu Deposit, hosts a historical mineral resource of 20 million tonnes grading 0.30% copper, 0.55gpt gold and 0.012% molybdenum. The reader is cautioned that a qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current resources and Northisle is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources. The historical resource is open to the west where there is a 1km wide untested Induced Polarization chargeability anomaly.
