"We are very pleased with the robust results from the PEA for our Cerro Maricunga oxide gold deposit," said Carl Hansen, President and CEO of Atacama Pacific. "With a processing rate of over 80,000 tonnes per day and the potential for average annual production of 298,000 ounces of gold over the first 5 years, Cerro Maricunga is globally one of the largest oxide gold projects under consideration for development. The high processing rate and positive metallurgical characteristics combined with a low 1.6 to 1 strip ratio, cost effective open pit mining and heap leach processing methods establish the potential for an economically strong project with quick payback on capital expenditures for a project of this scale. With the PEA completed, we will move forward towards a feasibility study and will examine the opportunities to potentially improve the results of the PEA by increasing the overall resource through additional drilling and leaching coarser crushed material in a valley-fill heap leach scenario."

The PEA is preliminary in nature and includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the PEA results will be realized. The PEA is not a preliminary feasibility study or feasibility study. The PEA has been completed to a level of accuracy of +35% to -10%.

Economic Analysis

The PEA calculates a base case pre-tax net present value at a 5% discount rate ("NPV5%") of $741 million, a pre-tax internal rate return ("IRR") of 33.9% and an average pre-tax cash flow from operations of $189 million per year. Table 1 summarizes the key economic results of the PEA. The base case was calculated at a gold price of $1,450. The three-year historical gold price, as of January 1, 2013, was approximately $1,490/oz Au.

The following operational parameters and costs were used in the PEA:


    Processing Rate (tonne per day)             80,000
    Gold Recoveries                              79.5%
    Mining Costs ($/tonne mined)                 $1.43
    Processing Costs ($/tonne)                   $2.56
    G&A Costs ($/tonne processed)                $0.53

Mining and Processing

Projected total gold production over a potential 10-year mine life is 2.7 million ounces at an average operating cash cost of $652/oz Au. The gold is produced from heap leaching 261 million resource tonnes with an average grade of 0.40 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au"). An average life of mine strip ratio of 1.6 to 1 (waste to resource) was calculated. Table 2 summarizes a potential mining schedule base on this mine life.

Conventional open pit mining methods have been considered in mining the Cerro Maricunga deposit. The PEA considers utilizing a fleet of 16 haul trucks (Komatsu 9300E - 290 tonne), five diesel shovels (Komatsu PC5500 - 38 yard), five production drills (Sandvik DR460 - 10 5/8 inch) and various ancillary equipment. No additional production fleet equipment is considered during the mine life. The preliminary open pit design incorporates 10 metre ("m") high benches with 40 metre wide main haul roads at a maximum grade of 10% and pit walls at an average 42 degree angle.

The PEA envisions that oxide mineralization will be trucked to a primary gyratory crusher facility, with a minimum capacity of 4,200 tonne per hour, located to the immediate west of the Lynx Zone where it will be crushed to 165 mm. The primary crushed material will then be conveyed approximately 3.4 kilometres ("km") to feed three secondary cone crushers and three tertiary cone crushers. The final crushed product, measuring (P80) 19 mm, will be conveyed 2.8 km to the heap leach pads.

Crushed material would be stacked on the heap leach pad by a radial stacker in 50 by 50 metre modules in layers 10 m thick. Every five layers, a geomembrane will be placed on the heap to separate subsequent layers from the underlying material. The final leach pad height will be approximately 100 m. A pad irrigation rate of 10 liters/hour/metre2 has been considered. Sodium cyanide and lime consumption are expected to be 0.24 kilograms per tonne ("kg/t") and 1.4 kg/t respectively. The pregnant leaching solution containing gold would then be pumped to a conventional carbon adsorption facility (ADR plant) where gold from process solutions would be recovered to a final gold dore product.

Average gold recoveries of 79.5% have been used in the PEA based on bottle roll and column metallurgical testing. To date, over 75 bottle roll tests and 20 column tests have been completed on material from the Cerro Maricunga deposit. The majority of the column tests have been completed on mineralization crushed to 19 millimetres ("mm"), however, 78% gold recoveries were also achieved on material crushed to 50 mm and 77% recoveries were achieved on 100 mm crushed material. In order to evaluate gold recoveries at various crush sizes, further metallurgical test work is continuing.

Capital Requirements

The PEA initially estimates capital expenditures for the potential development of an open pit mining and conventional heap leach processing operation at the Cerro Maricunga project at $514.6 million, which includes contingencies of $41.3 million and Engineering, Procurement, and Construction Management ("ECPM") costs of $28.9 million. A breakdown of these costs is provided in Table 3. Additional capital requirement during the life of the mine, including annual heap leach pad expansions and closure costs total $249.0 million, which includes a 5% contingency. The capital costs presented are based on quotes received from equipment manufactures or contractors. The PEA assumes, on the basis of quotes received, that the mining fleet will be acquired through a manufacturer lease arrangement payable over the life of the mine at a total cost of $214.1 million.

Taxes

The federal Chilean tax rate used in the PEA is 20%. In addition, included in the economic analysis is the variable Chilean tax on mining activities levied on operational income.

Resource Estimate

On September 25, 2012, Atacama Pacific published a global unconstrained resource estimate summarized in Table 4. The pit constrained resource estimate used in the preliminary open pit mine model, Table 5, includes approximately 75% of the Measured and Indicated and 33% Inferred resources from the global unconstrained resource estimate.

The pit constrained resource estimate includes those resources which lie within the boundary of a conceptual open pit designed at an average gold price of $1,400 using the mining and processing parameters and associated costs outlined in the PEA. The cut off grade used in the estimation of the pit constrained resource is variable at 0.18 g/t Au up to the third year and at 0.15 g/t Au from year 4 to the end of the proposed mine life.

The PEA includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as Mineral Reserves. There is no certainty that the PEA results will be realized. The PEA is preliminary in nature and is not a preliminary feasibility study or feasibility study. The mining study for the PEA was developed by NCL. The parameters of the mining study were used to develop the constrained resource.

Water

The PEA considers that water will be transported by pipeline from Atacama Pacific's water exploration concessions, under option from AMX de Chile S.A., located approximately 100 km north to the Cerro Maricunga project. Atacama Pacific has received a quote of $85 million for the construction of the pipeline. Power for the pumping stations will be supplied by leased generators.

Water requirements of 100 litres per second are projected. Atacama Pacific is presently completing water exploration drilling and has encountered significant water flows in the first two holes drilled on the exploration concessions. The acquisition of other water sources is also being considered.

Permitting

Chile has an established and clearly defined and regulated permitting process for development projects. In order to develop a mining and processing operation at the Cerro Maricunga project, an Environmental Impact Assessment ("EIA") must be obtained from the Chilean environmental authority, Servicio de Evaluation Ambiental ("SEA"). The EIA process takes 6 to 18 months to complete and takes into consideration all aspects of a proposed development. Once permits of this nature are granted, Atacama Pacific would have a five year period to start construction of the project.

Atacama Pacific has been gathering baseline environmental information for more than two years and has contracted Arcadis Chile S.A. to prepare baseline study documentation. Further works, including basic engineering, geotechnical drilling, approval of water extraction rights, are necessary before an EAI application can be submitted for approval.

Project Opportunities and Risks

Atacama Pacific has identified a number of opportunities that may positively impact the economics of the Cerro Maricunga project which will be evaluated. These opportunities include but may be not be limited to the following:


--  Expansion of the current resource and reduction of the strip ratio
    through positive results from the current drilling program; 
    
--  Examining the impact of increasing the crush size from 19 mm to coarser
    crush sizes including run of mine; 
    
--  Evaluating contracting crushing and conveying operations, 
    
--  Sale and leaseback of water supply; and 
    
--  Adoption of valley fill heap leach processing within a valley adjacent
    to the deposit. 

Aside from the risks typical of all large scale mining projects, such as, but not limited to, confidence in mineral resource estimates, metallurgical performance, capital and operating cost increases, commodity price decreases, securing reasonably priced project financing, etc., principal project risks specific to Cerro Maricunga include the following:


--  Identification or acquisition of sufficient water resources for the
    project; 
    
--  Ability to acquire water rights and mining and other permits while
    maintaining a reasonable development timeline; and 
    
--  The ability to attract and retain experienced professionals given the
    competitive state of the global mining industry. 

Project Developments

Atacama Pacific is currently undertaking a 20,000 m infill drilling program with the goal of converting existing inferred category resource to the measured and indicated category as well as targeting areas within the projected $1,400/oz Au pit shell which have not been drilled to date and are considered un-mineralized in the PEA.

Upon completion of the currently drilling program, Atacama Pacific will prepare an updated pit confined resource estimate that should be available early in the third quarter of 2013. The updated resource estimate will form the basis for a feasibility study intended to commence shortly thereafter.

PEA Study Basis and Assumptions

This study constitutes a PEA for NI 43-101 purposes and is preliminary in nature. It includes Inferred Mineral Resources that are considered too speculative geologically to have the economic considerations applied to them that enable them to be categorized as Measured or Indicated Resources or Mineral Reserves. Mineral Resources used in this study are not Mineral Reserves and require further work to demonstrate their economic viability. There is no certainty that the Inferred resources will be converted to Measured or Indicated resources. There is no certainty that the PEA results will be realized. Since the analysis is based on a cash flow estimate, it should be expected that actual economic results might vary from these results. The PEA has been completed to a level of accuracy of +35% to -10%. The PEA is not a preliminary feasibility study or feasibility study.

The NI 43-101 compliant PEA study was prepared by NCL for Atacama Pacific based on inputs from the following entities:


  NCL Ingenieria y Construccion SA  - Mining and Project Implementation     
  Alquimia Conceptos S.A.           - Process and Infrastructure            
  Arcadis Chile S.A.                - Environmental Permitting and Closure  
                                                                            
Key assumptions used in the economic analysis in the PEA include the        
following:                                                                  


  Gold Price (US$/oz Au)                  $1,450                   
  Exchange Rate (Chilean Peso/US$)        500                      
  Fuel Price WTI ($/barrel)               $90                      
  Electricity (MWh)                       $115
