About LKA Gold & The Golden Wonder Mine 

From 1998 through the second quarter of 2006, LKA's Golden Wonder mine, with a
single mining crew, produced over 133,701 ounces of gold from ore with an
average grade of 16.01 oz. (453.8 grams) per ton ($207 million at today's
price) making it one the richest gold mines in North America. In 2009, LKA
commenced an exploration program to re-establish reserves and return the mine
to commercial production. Since then, LKA's has shipped bulk ore samples
containing more than 2,942 ounces of gold resulting in net gold sales of $3.3
million. Average ore grades during this exploration program have exceeded
1.52 ounces (43 grams) per ton. Investors are cautioned that a commercially
viable ore reserve has yet to be established and there can be no assurance
that one will be.

of conditions including, but not limited to, favorable geology, successful
