Open Pit and Underground Mineral Reserves

The FS mineral reserves are based on the October 2012 resource update (see Rainy River Resources' press release dated October 10, 2012). For the FS, open pit mining dilution and mining recovery are calculated as 9.7% at 0.22 g/t gold and 1.31 g/t silver and 95%, respectively. Approximately 80% of the underground mineral reserves are in long-hole (LH) stopes, with the balance of about 20% of underground reserves in cut-and-fill ("CAF") stopes. Overall, it is estimated that the LH stopes will have approximately 10% dilution grading 1.56 gpt gold and 1.28 gpt silver. Dilution in the CAF areas is estimated to be 9% with a grade of 0.61 gpt gold and 4.16 gpt silver. Underground resources have been calculated assuming a mining recovery of 95%.

The open pit cut-off grade is 0.30 g/t gold-equivalent ("AuEq"), and the underground cut-off grade is 3.5 g/t AuEq. The resulting mineral reserve calculation for the open pit and underground mine plans is shown in Table 2:
