** 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
In addition to the Hushamu Deposit, the Red Dog Property 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.
