* Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. All figures rounded to reflect the relative accuracy of the estimates. Reported at an NSR cut-off grade of US$11 per tonne, within Whittle shells with slope angles of 55 degrees, using 15 by 15 by 15 metres block models. NSR and gold equivalent (AuEq) calculated using metal prices of US $900 per ounce of gold, $2 per pound of copper, $1 per pound each of zinc and lead and considering metal recoveries of 90% and 85% for gold at Taç and Çorak, respectively, and 80% copper, 80% silver, 81% zinc, and 81% lead. NSR and gold equivalent values include transportation refining/smelting and royalty costs. Mining and processing (to a concentrate) costs are not included.

The Company recently published the results of its Preliminary Assessment prepared by SRK Consulting of Vancouver on June 14, 2011. As a result of this assessment the Company has decided to carry out additional drilling at Çorak and Taç with a view to publishing a new NI 43-101 Technical Report on these deposits.

The targets at Çorak are primarily areas of the existing deposit where inadequate drilling was done in the past. The campaign on this deposit will consist of four 200-metre holes and one 150-metre hole. The map for these proposed holes (marked in green) is shown at the following link http://www.medresources.ca/projects/maps/

The target for a three/four-hole campaign at Taç is the part of the deposit (shown in crimson) that was identified by SRK as potentially high-grade and yet was not included within the resource estimate due to drill spacings being too wide. The map for these proposed holes is shown at the following link http://www.medresources.ca/projects/maps/
