Kinskuch Project

The Kinskuch project is a large 623 sq. km property which is located directly east of Homestake Ridge and extends south approximately 30km to tidewater at Alice Arm/Kitsault in Northwestern British Columbia.

Rock and soil geochemical results from the 2012 exploration program, combined with earlier EM geophysical data continues to demonstrate extensive mineralization throughout the property. Specifically, surface soil and rock sampling on the Illiance River trend has extended Ag-Pb-Zn mineralization south of Homestake's 2011 drilling by an additional 750 metres and expanded the overall trend to more than 4.5 kilometres of strike length. The Illiance River trend is the first of several drill-ready target areas identified on the property located, adjacent to the Company's Homestake Ridge project and will be the focus of the 2013 exploration program.

About Homestake

Homestake owns a 100 percent interest in the Homestake Ridge project, which is located in a prolific mineral belt in northwestern British Columbia. The project is being advanced as a potential high-grade underground mining operation with a current NI43-101 compliant Indicated Resource, at a 3.0 g/t AuEq cut-off, of 191,000 oz gold and 1,350,000 oz silver (215,500 oz AuEq) plus an Inferred Resource of 530,000 oz gold and 13,470,000 oz silver (775,900 oz AuEq)(1). Two deposits have been delineated to date, with a third, South Reef, discovered late in 2011. Multiple exploration targets remain to be tested on the large 2585 hectare property. Homestake also holds an option to acquire the 623-square-kilometre Kinskuch project located adjacent to, and to the southeast of Homestake's Homestake Ridge project. Homestake holds a 9.76 percent interest in Bravada Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:BVA), which is exploring 21 projects in Nevada.

1.  The current estimate was prepared by Roscoe Postle Associates Inc.
    (RPA). Mineral Resources on the Main Homestake deposit were estimated
    previously in 2010 using a block model constrained by 3D wireframes of
    the mineralized zones. Mineral Resources on the Homestake Silver deposit
    were estimated in 2011 using a block model constrained by pierce points
    projected to 2D surfaces. The Main Homestake block model comprised an
    array of blocks measuring 5 m x 5 m x 5 m, with grades for Au, Ag, and
    Cu interpolated using ID3 weighting. The Homestake Silver block model
    comprised an array of blocks measuring 10 m x 10 m. At a 3.0g/t AuEq
    cut-off, the models identified an indicated resource of 888,000 tonnes
    averaging 6.7g/t Au, 47.2g/t Ag and 0.15% Cu and a cumulative inferred
    resource of 4,060,000 tonnes averaging 4.3g/t Au, 158g/t Ag.
