During 2012 PPM representatives interviewed former Cliff Creek Mine employees who reviewed modelling and other work done by the company on historical resources.  It was generallyl agreed that given current metal prices, the fact that the development of the mine stopped in late 1991, and that mill production records attribute just over 48,000 tons of Cliff Creek ore as process in the mill, the CC mine's ore reserves as originally estimated from drilling done by Cheni, albeit needing to be reconfirmed, remain substantially in place.  These interviews are available for review at the corporate offices by appointment.
