The following are important notices for all investors regarding the information contained on this website. Please read these Cautionary Notes carefully and thoroughly.
EurGeol Dr. Mark D. Cruise, Trevali's President and CEO, and a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, has reviewed the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for this presentation. Dr. Cruise is not independent of the Company as he is an officer, director and shareholder.
This presentation contains “forward-looking information” (also referred to herein as “forward-looking statements”) under the provisions of applicable Canadian securities legislation. Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “plans”, “expects”, “is expected”, “budget”, “scheduled”, “estimates”, “forecasts”, “intends”, “anticipates”, “believes” or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results “may”, “could”, “would”, “might” or “will”, “occur” or “be achieved” or the negative connotation thereof.
Forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, those in respect of: the economic outlook for the mining industry; expectations regarding metal prices, production, and project development; the current and planned commercial operations, initiatives and objectives in respect of certain projects of Trevali Mining Corporation (“Trevali” or “TV”) including the Perkoa, Caribou, Rosh Pinah and Santander mines (the “Mines”); TV’s current and planned exploration initiatives; strategies and objectives in respect of the Mines; liquidity, capital resources and expenditures; sustainability and environmental initiatives and objectives; business development strategies and outlook; product distribution forecasts; leverage metrics; planned capital expenditures; debt repayment schedules; planned work programs and drilling programs in respect of the Mines; and economic performance, financial conditions and expectations.
Forward-looking statements also include, but are not limited to, factors and assumptions in respect of: normal operating conditions; cost and production guidance with respect to its operations and the Mines; statements with respect to the future price, market, demand, supply and/or uses of zinc and copper; current uses and initiatives propelling new uses of zinc; the estimation of mineral reserves and mineral resources; the realization of mineral reserve estimates; the timing and amount of estimated future production; costs of production; targeted cost reductions; capital expenditures; free cash flow; earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization; costs and timing of the exploration and development of new deposits; success of current and planned exploration initiatives and activities; permitting timelines; currency exchange rate fluctuations; requirements for additional capital; government regulation of mining operations; environmental policies and risks; unanticipated reclamation expenses; timing and possible outcomes of pending litigation; title disputes or claims; and limitations on insurance coverage.
Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other important factors that may cause the actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements of TV and/or the Mines to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements, including but not limited to, those in respect of: international operations including economic and political instability in foreign jurisdictions in which TV operates; current global financial conditions; joint venture operations; actual results of current and planned exploration activities; actual results of drilling programs; actual results of current reclamation activities; environmental policies and risks; conclusions of economic evaluations; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; changes in the future prices, market, demand, supply and/or uses of zinc and copper; possible variations in mineral resources and mineral reserves; grade or recovery rates; failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; integration of acquisitions; accidents; labour disputes; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities and other risks of the mining industry; inaccuracies or changes in the consolidated zinc production, exploration, and operational guidance for the Mines; inaccuracies or changes in the analysis of the exploration potential of the Mines; failure to complete the work programs or drilling programs at the Mines; inaccuracies or changes in the growth pipelines of the Mines; as well as those factors discussed in the section entitled “Risk Factors” in TV’s most recent management’s discussion and analysis and annual information form available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Although TV has attempted to identify important factors, assumptions and risks that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements, there may be others that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that such forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are made as of the date hereof and, accordingly, are subject to change after such date. Forward-looking statements are provided for the purpose of providing information about management’s current expectations and plans and allowing investors and others to get a better understanding of TV’s operating environment. TV does not intend or undertake to publicly update any forward-looking statements that are included in this presentation, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except in accordance with applicable securities laws.
This presentation refers to ‘EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization)’, ‘free cash flow’, ‘site cash operating cost per tonne milled’, and ‘site cash operating cost per pound of payable zinc equivalent produced’, which are financial performance measures with no standard meaning under International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”). Such non‐IFRS financial measures do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by IFRS and are therefore unlikely to be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers. Management uses these measures internally to evaluate the underlying operating performance of TV for the relevant reporting periods. The use of these measures enables management to assess performance trends and to evaluate the results of the underlying business of TV. Management understands that certain investors, and others who follow TV’s performance, also assess performance in this way. Management believes that these measures reflect TV’s performance and are better indications of its expected performance in future periods. This data is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS.
Cautionary Note Regarding Mineral Reserves and Mineral Resources:
Scientific and technical information contained in this presentation was reviewed and approved by EurGeol Dr. Mark D. Cruise, TV's President and Chief Executive Officer, and a “qualified person” as defined by National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”). Dr. Cruise is not independent of TV as he is an officer, director and shareholder of TV.
Certain technical information in this presentation was derived from the following technical reports of Trevali in respect of the Perkoa, Caribou, Rosh Pinah, and Santander mines:
1.The technical report entitled “Technical Report on the Perkoa Mine, Burkina Faso” dated April 7, 2017 as prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. and by “qualified persons” Torben Jensen, P.Eng., Ian T. Blakley, P. Geo, Tracey Jacquemin, Pr. Sci. Nat, and Holger Krutselmann (the “Perkoa Technical Report”);
2.The technical report entitled “Technical Report on Preliminary Economic Assessment for the Halfmile-Stratmat Massive Suplhide Zinc-Lead-Silver Integrated Project Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada” dated October 26, 2017 as prepared primarily by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. and by “qualified persons” Benny Zhang, P. Eng, Gary Poxleitner, P. Eng, Gilles Arseneau, P. Geo, G. Ross MacFarlane, P. Eng, Paul Keller, P. Eng, and Jeffrey Barrett, P. Eng (the “Caribou Technical Report”)
3.The technical report entitled “Technical Report on the Rosh Pinah Mine, Namibia” dated April 7, 2017 as prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc. and by “qualified persons” Torben Jensen, P.Eng., Ian T. Blakley, P. Geo, Tracey Jacquemin, Pr. Sci. Nat, and Holger Krutselmann (the “Rosh Pinah Technical Report”); and
4.The technical report entitled “Mineral Reserve Estimation Technical Report for the Santander Zinc Mine, Province de Huaral, Peru” as prepared primarily by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc. and SRK Consulting (Peru) S.A. and by “qualified persons” Benny Zhang, P. Eng, Gary Poxleitner, P. Eng, Gilles Arseneau, P. Geo, Leonard Holland, C. Eng, and David Maarse (the “Santander Technical Report”).
The Perkoa Technical Report, Caribou PEA, Rosh Pinah Technical Report, and Santander Technical Report are available on the SEDAR profile of TV at www.sedar.com.
The production plan at the Caribou mine is based only on measured, indicated and inferred mineral resources, and not mineral reserves, and does not have demonstrated economic viability. Inferred mineral resources are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves, and there is therefore no certainty that the conclusions of the production plans and Caribou Technical Report will be realized.
The production plans at the Santander, Rosh Pinah and Perkoa mines are based on both proven and probable mineral reserves in addition to measured, indicated and inferred mineral resources.
Additionally, where TV discusses exploration/expansion potential herein, any potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource.
Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.
Where ZnEq is presented: ZnEq Payable Pounds Produced = ((Zn Payable lbs Produced x Zn Price)+(Pb Payable lbs Produced x Pb Price)+(Cu Payable lbs Produced x Cu Price)+(Au oz Payable Produced x Au Price)+(Ag oz Payable Produced x Ag Price))/Zn Price.

National Instrument 43-101 Disclosure
National Instrument 43-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects is a rule developed by the Canadian Securities Administrators, and applicable throughout Canada, which establishes standards for all public disclosure an issuer makes of scientific and technical information concerning mineral projects materials to the issuer. Trevali Mining Corporation adheres to the NI 43-101 standards, and provides the following information related to its Peruvian projects.
The work programs at the Company's Peruvian properties have been designed and are run by EurGeol Dr. Mark D. Cruise, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, who has supervised the preparation of the scientific and technical information that forms the basis for the disclosure with respect to the results of exploration on the Company's Peruvian projects as contained on this website. Dr. Cruise is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Trevali Mining Corporation, and is therefore not independent of the Company.
All geochemical samples are secured and shipped to ALS Chemex for assay. For properties where drilling is taking place, on-site personnel at the project photograph the core from each individual borehole prior to preparing the split core, which is then sealed and shipped to ALS Chemex for assay.
ALS Chemex's quality system complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025: 1999. Analytical accuracy and precision are monitored by the analysis of reagent blanks, reference material and replicate samples. Quality control is further assured by the use of international and in-house standards. Finally, representative blind duplicate samples are forwarded to ALS Chemex and an ISO compliant third party laboratory for additional quality control.
