 1.    Revenues from mining operations increased significantly for the      
       quarter to $1,079,000 (June quarter: $349,000) but was less than    
       budgeted due to the extended commissioning of the GRU#1 plant and    
       lower 'wash' grades for both sites. Mining and processing costs were 
       higher during this settling down process which coincided with 2 of   
       the 3 months of winter in the South Island. Gold production in       
       September and October was considerably higher than the winter period 
       and the December quarter is expected to increase further.            
                                                                            
       All commissioning costs have been written off as incurred. The       
       increased production in September - November has resulted in a       
       turnaround to monthly profits. Attention will now focus on costs     
       reduction, which combined with a move to higher grade areas for both 
       sites, should see a marked improvement in cash generation and        
       profitability.                                                       
                                                                            
 2.    The lower administrative expenses for the quarter reflect the        
       significant decrease in investor relations costs.                    

The Company's cash position as at September 30, 2012 was $522,000 compared to $3,614,000 for the same date in 2011. The Company completed a private placement financing for gross proceeds of $360,000 in October and announced it is undertaking a non-brokered private placement financing for gross proceeds of up to $3,000,000.
