Kaminak Reports Robust PEA at US $1250/oz Gold on Coffee Gold Project

Pre-Tax [email protected]% of $522 million and IRR of 32.8%; Average Annual Gold Production of 167,000 Ounces and All-In Sustaining Costs of US$688/oz

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- Kaminak Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:KAM) is pleased to announce the results of a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) prepared pursuant to National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) on the Company's 100% owned Coffee Gold Project (Coffee), located 130km south of Dawson City, Yukon. The study indicates that Coffee represents a robust, high margin, rapid pay-back, 11-year open pit mining project at current gold prices. The study was prepared by JDS Energy & Mining Inc., an established Yukon mine builder, under the direction of Fred Lightner (Director of Mine Development, Kaminak) with contributions from Kappes Cassiday and Associates, Knight Piesold and Co. and SIM Geological Inc. At a gold-price of US$1250/oz and using an exchange rate of C$1.00 equal US$0.95, Coffee generates a pre-tax net present value (NPV) at a 5% discount rate of more than $500 million and an Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of 33%. Further, the mine could become a significant Yukon gold producer, yielding close to 450,000 ounces in the first two years and producing an average of 167,000 ounces annually over the life of mine at an all-in sustaining cash cost of US$688 per ounce of gold.

Kaminak will be hosting a live video webcast presentation at 10:30am Eastern Time (7:30am Pacific Time) on June 11, 2014 to discuss the results of the PEA. To participate in the live webcast, please click the following link: http://kaminak.com/investors/register/. For those who cannot participate, the video webcast will be archived on Kaminak's website (www.kaminak.com) within 24 hours of the presentation.

The PEA envisages an owner-operated, approximately 11-year open-pit mine targeting 53 million tonnes of primarily oxide facies material at an average diluted grade of 1.23 grams/tonne gold (g/t Au). The study incorporates a three-stage crushing circuit and a valley fill heap leach facility designed by Knight Piesold and Co., along with a standard carbon adsorption gold recovery plant to produce 1,859,000 ounces of gold dore over life of mine (LOM). It should be noted that the study outlines several opportunities to further enhance economics (see below) and the current resource remains open along strike and to depth. Further, more than 20km of untested gold in soil anomalies remain to be evaluated and Kaminak remains confident that additional near surface oxide resources can be identified in the near term; drilling is ongoing.

Highlights (all amounts are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated; base case is stated using a gold price of US$ 1,250 per ounce and an exchange rate of C$1.00 equal US$0.95):

--  NPV of $522 million at a 5% discount rate and an IRR of 32.8% before
    taxes and mining duties, and an NPV of $330 million and an IRR of 26.2%
    after taxes and mining duties 
--  Mine life of 11 years with peak production of 231,000 ounces per annum
    (Year 1) and average LOM production of 167,000 ounces of gold 
--  Average metallurgical recoveries of 88% gold 
--  1,859,000 ounces LOM gold production at an average diluted grade of 1.23
    g/t Au 
--  All-in sustaining costs(i) of US $688/oz (including royalties) for LOM,
    generating an Operating margin of over US $560/oz or 42% 
--  Initial capital costs of $305 million (including a 15% contingency) 
--  Payback of 1.8 years pre-tax and 2.0 years post-tax 
--  Gross Revenue of $2.4 Billion and Operating Cash-flow of $1.24 Billion
    (i) All-in Sustaining Costs are presented as defined by the World Gold
    Council ("WGC") less Corporate G&A.

Eira Thomas, CEO commented: "The recently completed Coffee PEA has delivered a high value, high margin, low risk gold project in one of the World's safest, pro-mining jurisdictions, Yukon Canada, and marks a significant milestone for our Company. At a US $1250 gold-price, Coffee will generate more than $2 billion in gross revenue, deliver total life of mine, pre-tax, free cash of $800 million and payback capital in under 2 years. Further upside to this evaluation is anticipated through optimization studies and continued exploration. All of the deposits in the current resource remain open along strike and to depth."

Fred Lightner, Kaminak's Director of Mine Development, stated: "With the completion of the PEA, we now have an initial look at the economic potential of the Coffee Project. The grade of the deposit and strip ratio, metallurgical response, and relatively low operating costs are strong factors which create value. We believe that with additional exploration, delineation drilling, and project engineering the project will be further enhanced."

JDS Energy & Mining Inc.

The Base Case summarized above was selected and reported to take advantage of the economies of scale that are realized with high production rates and to demonstrate the project potential from the known resources. The base case assumed an owner operated open pit mine, three-stage crushing circuit to nominal 12.5 mm, a valley fill heap leach facility, and a carbon adsorption gold recovery plant to produce gold dore. Other assumptions include access to site via an all-season road and power generation using diesel. Total installed power, including process equipment and other site infrastructure is estimated to be 5.0 megawatts (MW). The average operating power demand is 3.6 MW. With additional exploration and based on past performance, the possibility to expand the near surface oxide resources exists.

Opportunities to Enhance Value

Although Kaminak considers the PEA results for the base case excellent, future trade off studies are anticipated to evaluate alternate development scenarios that would be used to reduce the initial capital requirements. Such items as coarser crushing or run-of-mine leaching coupled with high fragmentation blasting in the mine, contract mining or mine equipment leasing, liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a potential power generation fuel source and a staged development of a smaller project followed by expansion, are a few of the scenarios being considered. Moreover, Coffee has high potential for resource expansion; the deposits in the current resource remain open along strike and to depth, and more than 20 km of priority gold in soil anomalies outside of the current resource area remain to be drill-tested.

PEA DETAILS

Mineral Resources:

The PEA is based on an Indicated and Inferred mineral resource estimate completed by independent Qualified Person Robert Sim, P.Geo., of SIM Geological Inc. and was derived from 961 diamond core and reverse circulation drill holes completed from 2010 to 2013 for a total of 185,000 metres. This estimate consists of 719,000 ounces Indicated (14 Mt grading at 1.56g/t Au), and 3,434,000 ounces Inferred (79 Mt grading at 1.36g/t Au) using base case cut-off of 0.5 grams per tonne gold ("g/t Au") for Oxide and Transitional material and a 1g/t Au cut-off for Sulphide material. For further details, please see Company press release of January 28, 2014 (http://kaminak.com/investors/news_releases/index.php?&content_id=539) and the NI 43-101 Technical Report released March 12, 2014.

Mining

Coffee is amenable to development as an open pit (OP) mine as all mineralized lodes commence at surface in all pits and pre-strip is limited to 1-2m of soil. Mining of the deposit is planned to produce a total of 53.4 Mt of heap leach feed and 212.4 Mt of waste (4.0:1 overall strip ratio) over a 13-year project production life which includes two years of pre-production. The current LOM plan focuses on achieving consistent heap leach production rates, and mining of higher grade material early in the production schedule. The tonnage and distribution of mined material is summarized below:

Mine planning for Coffee was conducted using a combination of Mintec Inc., MineSight(TM) software and CAE NPV Scheduler (NPVS) software. Pit slopes range from 37 degrees to 50 degrees as derived from a preliminary geotechnical assessment completed by SRK Consulting (U.S.) Inc. A series of optimized shells were generated for each of Supremo, Double Double, Latte and Kona deposits based on varying revenue factors. Selected pits range from 75m depth (Kona) to 200m depth (Supremo). Cut off grades for Oxide mineralization is 0.31g/t Au for Supremo, Double Double and Kona, and 0.32g/t Au for Latte.

The proposed heap leach processing rate of 5.0 Mtpa was used, along with deposit and pit geometry constraints, to estimate the mining equipment fleet needed. The fleet has an estimated maximum capacity of 90,000 t/d total material, which would be sufficient for the LOM plan.

The total capital cost of the mining equipment of $110.8 million has been based on a detailed equipment list and budget cost quotations from a major equipment supplier. The initial pre-production capital cost of the mine is estimated at $46.3 million and the remaining cost of $64.5 million will be spent after the pre-production period as sustaining capital. It should be noted that the $304.8 million of initial capital in the economic model includes $50.3 million of mining costs that have been capitalized in the pre-production period.

The open pit mine operations require a total average of 100 personnel, mine maintenance requires 35 personnel, and supervision/technical needs a total of 30 personnel, for a total of 165 open pit personnel.

Open pit mining costs were calculated from first principles based on equipment required and include pit and dump operations, road maintenance, mine supervision and technical services cost.

The average open pit operating costs for the LOM plan (which includes pre-production mining) are listed below:

Processing

The process flowsheet includes a three-stage crushing plant followed by a heap leach operation. Gold is extracted by an Adsorption-Desorption-Recovery (ADR) carbon plant. The process flowsheet is based on a processing rate of 5.0 million dry tonnes per year.

The design particle crush size is minus 16 mm (80% passing 12.5 mm) however, rock types found to leach adequately at coarser sizes could bypass the tertiary crushing circuit. Based on experience gained during actual operations, the crush size for each rock type may be modified as conditions permit.

The estimates for ultimate gold recovery and major reagent consumptions for various rock types were based on the results of laboratory column leach tests conducted by Kappes Cassiday & Associates, industry leading experts in heap leach processing and consultants to Kinross for the development of the successful Ft. Knox Heap Leach mine in Alaska.

A summary of the ultimate recoveries and reagent consumptions used for each deposit facies is summarized below:

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

Column leach test work was conducted under simulated cold climate conditions. Agglomeration was not required and low reagent consumption was reported.

The total capital cost of the process facilities of $73.3 million has been based on budget cost quotations from major equipment suppliers. The initial pre-production capital cost of the process facilities mine is estimated at $56.1 million and the remaining cost of $17.2 million will be spent after the pre-production period as sustaining capital. For the heap leach facility (HLF), Knight Piesold and Co. conducted a two phased conceptual study to first evaluate alternate locations for the siting of the HLF, followed by completion of design, scheduling and cost estimation to construct the HLF. Again it should be noted that the $304.8 million of initial capital in the economic model includes $8.7 million of processing costs that have been capitalized in the pre-production period.

Process operating costs were estimated to include all crushing, heap loading, and gold recovery activities to produce unrefined gold bullion (dore). Process manpower requirements were estimated to require 126 personnel. All reagents cost estimates were calculated by projected consumptions and estimated prices. All power is supplied by diesel generators and power costs are estimated at $0.35 per kilowatt hour.

The LOM process operating costs (which include pre-production processing) are summarized below:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                       $CDN / Year      $CDN / tonne leached

Project Infrastructure and Indirects

The project envisions the construction of the following key infrastructure items to support the mine and process facilities:

--  Approximately 250 km all-season access road from the Klondike Highway at
    Carmacks to the project site; includes upgrading 74 km of existing road
    and building 179 km of new road 
--  Approximately 7 km of new on-site access roads for light vehicles to by-
    pass the active mining areas 
--  New airstrip 
--  Truck shop, warehouse and camp 
--  Fresh water supply developed from groundwater 
--  Bulk explosives storage and magazines 
--  Power plant and bulk fuel storage 
--  Potable, fire and sewage water systems 
--  Camp and administrative office 

The total capital cost of the project infrastructure and development indirect costs is $109.2 million based on a budget quotation to construct the access road, JDS' northern operating experience, and more specifically, their Yukon project experience. The all-season access road will be constructed to connect the project site to Carmacks, Yukon Territory, Canada. The conceptual design for the road includes upgrading approximately 74 km of existing public road and 179 km of new road construction (250 km total). The road will be designed as a single-lane (5m width), mine access road with intermittent turnouts and traffic will be radio controlled. The road will be suitable for semi-trailer trucks and will eliminate the need to supply the site by barge, ice-road or by air. The mine will own and operate a fleet of snow plows and graders used to maintain the road through the winter.

The initial pre-production capital cost of the infrastructure and indirects is $104.4 million and the sustaining cost is $4.8 million to be spent after the pre-production period. The General and Administrative operating costs for the operation are estimated to be approximately $20 million per year or $4.00 per tonne leached.

Environment, Reclamation and Stakeholder Engagement

In 2014, Kaminak initiated comprehensive environmental baseline studies, building on the environmental studies that have been ongoing since 2010 with the aim of completing an Environmental Impact Statement for submission in advance of Permitting. Kaminak will be seeking the input and involvement of local First Nations (Tr'ondek Hwech'in, Selkirk First Nation, White River First Nation and Little Salmon/Carmacks First Nation) in the design and implementation of these baseline studies and is committed to working with stakeholders to ensure that concerns are addressed. A closure and reclamation plan will be prepared for the project proposal submission. Financial assurance must be posted to secure the closure and reclamation works. In the PEA, the estimate for the closure cost is $46,000,000, including a 15% contingency, and is based on the owner-operator closing the mine and completing the reclamation activities. The Government of Yukon will determine the amount and form of security to be provided.
