Disclosure that is "non-NI 43-101 compliant" cannot be disclosed under Canadian securities law. The previously released disclosure should have been disclosed as a "historical estimate" providing all disclosure required by NI 43-101, 2.4(a) to (g) - Disclosure of Historical Estimates:
The Fredart property hosts the Copperlode/Fredart zone, with a historical mineral resource of 386,200 tonnes grading 1.56 per cent copper (% Cu) and 33.6 grams per tonne silver (g/t Ag) (completed by Phelps-Dodge Mining Co. in 1971 and included within a prospectus for Consolidated Copper Lode Developments Inc., Jan. 7, 1977, submitted to the Ontario Securities Commission). This historical mineral resource requires further drilling in order to verify and upgrade the resource to NI 43-101 standards. A Qualified Person has not done sufficient work to classify the historical estimate as current resources or mineral reserves and Infinite Ore is not treating the historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.
The Qualified Person has not verified the data disclosed, through sampling, analytical, nor test data. The information was obtained from assessment reports submitted to the Ontario government, and publicly available company reports. The Qualified Person has not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property, particularly in regards to the historical drill results and historical resource estimates. However, the Qualified Person believes that drilling and analytical results were completed to industry standard practices. The information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Property but may not be representative of expected results.
