----------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Company believes that the above voting results include substantially all of the 33,066,810 common shares that Tocqueville Asset Management, L.P. claimed in its dissident proxy circular dated May 23, 2014 to have had the authority to exercise control or direction over as of such date. The Company believes such shares were withheld from voting for Messrs. Mason, Berg and Kipp in accordance with Tocqueville's stated recommendations in its June 2, 2014 amendment to its dissident proxy circular. Excluding these shares would result in each management nominee receiving in excess of 50% of the shares voted in favour of his election.

In addition, a resolution appointing Deloitte LLP, Chartered Accountants as auditors of the Company until the Company's next annual meeting of shareholders and authorizing the directors to set the auditor's remuneration was approved by a majority of the votes cast.
