  PNG: Newmont/ TPJ Morobe JV

Licence area: 3,761km2 granted and applied for exploration tenements; highly prospective geology within
major district:- Wafi/Golpu (30 Moz and 8 Mt Cu target), Hidden Valley (5.8 Moz)

Status: 19 months activity since JV signed Dec 2008 and fieldwork commenced April 2009

Work completed: 90% of JV area covered by regional BLEG sampling; interpretation of new EU-funded
airborne magnetics/radiometrics; 100m line spacing helimag survey over Hide’s Creek and Otibanda; geological
mapping, trenching; rockchip and soil sampling

Expenditure to date: Newmont Phase I expenditure of $US6M to August 2010 has earned 51%

• Existing (TPJ) Otibanda project, bonanza gold grades

• Hides Creek – potential porphyry copper-gold (4km x 1km footprint)

• Gumots – potential porphyry gold-copper target

• 5 other priority targets

Next steps: Newmont has elected to proceed to Phase 2 and will earn 70% by spending an additional $US9M
before 23/12/2014 or by delivering a Class III DFS, whichever is earlier

Next steps: drilling at Hides Creek in 2011 and perhaps other targets, geophysics, regional sampling                                  November 2010                                         10

             65m @     2.16 g/t Au
Waikanda Lode
             22m @ 19.61 g/t Au                 November 2010   12
 PNG: Newmont/TPJ Morobe JV – Hides Creek

   Large (4km x 1km)
    geochemical footprint

   Mapping shows alteration,
    veining and geology which are
    characteristic of a porphyry

   Up to 28m @ 3.9 g/t Au (inc.
    8m @ 12.6 g/t Au) from

   Rock chips to 8 g/t Au, 2% Cu

   Diamond drilling planned for
    early 2011

   Numerous additional nearby
    targets to follow up                  November 2010   13
 ACA Howe: Newmont/TPJ Morobe JV

  Morobe area was one of the first areas in PNG to be mined for gold, with historical alluvial
    workings at Bulolo (2.8Moz Au) and hard rock mining at Wau and Edie Ck. In modern times
    Hidden Valley deposit (resources of 5.8 Moz Au) and Wafi-Golpu (resources of 30 Moz Au and
    8 Mt Cu target) discovered on ground adjacent to the TPJ concessions

  Work by TPJ identified 3 main (gold-bearing) lodes which were each trenched over a 4-5 km
    strike length; continuous mineralisation has been partially delineated along a strike length of
    nearly 500m, averaging 17.5 g/t Au across 1.5m width on the Otibanda Lode

  Work (90% completed) by Newmont includes helicopter-supported reconnaissance BLEG (Bulk
    Leach Extractable Gold) sampling over the entire JV property, with 3,000m of diamond drilling
    planned for 2011 initially at Hides Creek; geological mapping, soil geochemistry, helicopter
    magnetic survey and IP surveys in 2011 to generate drill targets in at least four other
    identified targets

  ACA Howe considers that the (Newmont) programme is well conceived and has a good chance
    of success in view of the neighbouring deposits at Wafi- Golpu and Hidden Valley and the low
    level of historical exploration over much of the ground                              November 2010                                         14
  PNG: Gold Anomaly/ TPJ JV

   Licence area: 306km2, Crater Mountain, PNG

   Status: 32 months activity since JV signed September 2007. Field operations
   commenced in February 2008

   Work completed: Bench & channel sampling, geological mapping, bulldozer
   track access

   Expenditure required: GOA issued shares valued at A$1M and carrying out
   specific work (including drilling) within a specified time period at an estimated
   cost of A$0.6M in stage 1 and A$0.9M in stage 2 in order to earn a 70% interest

   Discoveries: New area of gold mineralisation identified at Nevera including a
   bench sampling result of 70 m of 3.9 g/t Au (including 5 m at 41 g/t Au)

   Next steps: TPJ to review and assess GOA’s expenditures & work completed
   to date; drilling & benching required in 2011 to determine if there is an initial
   resource.                         November 2010                               15
  PNG: Gold Anomaly/ TPJ JV

  Historical work at Crater Mountain by TPJ and
  previous operators includes best surface trenching

  -- 48m @ 10.20 g/t Au
  -- 26.5m @ 6.27 g/t Au (inc. 2m @ 55.20 g/t Au)
  -- 30m @ 1.95 g/t Au
  -- 58m @ 1.89 g/t Au
  -- 35m @ 3.10 g/t Au
  Historical drilling includes intercepts of:

  - 115m @ 1.83 g/t Au from 225-340m EOH (NEV-
  - 151m @ 1.41 g/t Au from 100-251m EOH
  including 24m @ 6.55 g/t Au from 214-238m
  - 178m @ 1.30 g/t Au from 200-378m including
  32m @ 2.76 g/t Au from 288-320m (NEV-008)                              November 2010   16
 ACA Howe: Gold Anomaly/TPJ Crater Mountain JV

  BHP had previously drilled 3 holes totalling 986m, the best result being 115m at 1.83 g/t Au,
    terminating in good mineralisation. Macmin drilled 4 holes with a best intersection of 24m
    grading 6.55 g/t Au

  TPJ identified four highly prospective areas of mineralization in the Nevera prospect area
    within a north-east trending area some 3.5km long and 1.5km wide. Follow up mapping and
    sampling in the Nevera area identified gold mineralization with elevated Pb-Zn-Ag levels in all
    prospect areas

  TPJ drilling produced highly significant assays from all holes, including 58m grading 1.89 g/t
    Au. However interpretation of the mineralization has remained a problem because it is
    masked by a thick blanket of volcanic deposits

  Gold Anomaly brought a bulldozer to site to conduct mechanised benching. Best initial assay
    results indicate 70m at 3.91 g/t Au, including a 5m sample at 41.2 g/t Au

  Gold Anomaly plans to commence drilling to 50m depth to assess shallow open cut gold
    potential and to test for larger deep gold targets

  ACA Howe recommends that TPJ should maintain its position on this project                              November 2010                                         17
 PNG: Newcrest/ TPJ HoA

 Licence area: 674km2 in Manus Island, PNG

 Status: HoA signed on 31 March 2010; JVA being prepared

 Terms: A$6M over 5 years including $1M in the first 2 years to earn 80% of TPJ’s
 interest in the licences resulting in Newcrest owning 60.78% and TPJ with 15.2%.
 In 2010/2011, initial budget may be A$2M for helicopter-borne magnetics survey
 over licence areas, with drilling planned at the Kisi prospect

 Previous work: (TPJ): geophysics, drilling totalling 402m at Kisi prospect
 - trenching at Kisi prospect includes best intercept of 16m @ 20 g/t Au (inc. 2m @
 303 g/t Au)
 - potential geological resource at Arie of 164Mt @ 0.32% Cu, 0.1 g/t Au

 Expenditure to date: TPJ estimates it has spent A$2.5M

 Next steps: Finalise & sign JV, Newcrest to establish & initiate work programme                        November 2010                               18
    PNG: Newcrest/TPJ HoA – Kisi Prospect

 35km by 7km corridor of Cu &
  Au anomalies

At Kisi:

 3km x 1km >0.43 g/t Au in
  soils & colluvium

 Trenching includes:
  - 16m @ 40 g/t Au (inc. 2m @
  303 g/t Au)
  - 56m @ 2.47 g/t Au (inc.
  10m @ 8.58g/t Au)

 Diamond core drilling includes
  5.6m @ 4.98 g/t Au from
  116.4m depth

 Next step: Helimag survey to
  better define drill targets               November 2010   19
 ACA Howe: Newcrest/TPJ Manus Island HoA

  35 km long and 7 km wide northwesterly trending structural corridor identified, in which
   intrusive activity and associated hydrothermal alteration and widespread Cu and Au
   mineralisation was focussed

  TPJ commissioned (consultant) R Findlay to map the area and his work also indicated
   the presence of a significant epithermal province associated with porphyry copper-gold
   mineralisation. An eroded stratovolcano was interpreted in the south west of the licence
   area; overlying rocks are now considered to be Pliocence (in age), contemporaneous
   with major mineralising events elsewhere in PNG

  Newcrest proposed a preliminary exploration programme at Kisi, comprising geological
   mapping, rock and soil sampling and drill site planning, followed by the drilling of a
   series of holes for an (initial) total 1,500m. In addition they also planned to conduct an
   airborne magnetic survey

  There are strong targets on the licence area and ACA Howe considers that TPJ should
   maintain its interest in the project                           November 2010                                      20
 PNG: Barrick/TPJ Wamum JV

  Licence area: 1,962km2 in Wamum area of PNG

  Status: 32 months field activity since JV signed September 2007. Field operations
  commenced in February 2008

  Work completed: Drilling, aeromagnetics, mapping, sampling. Best intersection
  from drilling of 136m @ 0.97 g/t Au & 0.33% Cu

  Expenditure to date: Anticipate $A9.47m spend by end of 2010 which would result
  in diluting TPJ to 11.7%

  Discoveries: 5Moz Au target not located to date but several deeper targets remain
  untested and a number of smaller targets exist

  Next steps: Focus on McLean South, Wafa & Waits Creek targets, 2011 budget
  under review but may be A$0.5M, TPJ plans to contribute its share to avoid further
  dilution                       November 2010                                 21
  PNG: Barrick/TPJ JV Wamum - Targets             November 2010   22
 ACA Howe: Barrick/TPJ Wamum JV

  The Wamum property is contiguous with the Harmony-Newcrest Wafi-Golpu epithermal-
    porphyry deposit shortly to become a major producer, and with Barrick’s Kainantu gold
    deposit (geological resource of 3.1 Mt of 20.2 g/t Au containing 2 Moz of gold)

  During 2009 Barrick conducted diamond drilling over 4 prospects totalling 5,629m that
    confirmed previously reported grades but failed to prove better grade extensions along

  3 prospects, Wafa South, McLeans South and Mt Ruwaim (Barrick only) target areas
    have been identified on account of their structural setting but have not been investigated
    by detailed exploration

  In 2008 a helicopter airborne magnetic survey (flown for Barrick) identified numerous
    anomalies that have yet to be investigated

  ACA Howe concludes that the remaining parts of the property contain numerous
    attractive targets based on consideration of structure and geophysical anomalies that are
    comparable to those at Wafi-Golpu. In particular, the prospects at Waits Ck, McLeans
    and McLeans South warrant further work                           November 2010                                       23
  Vietnam: Pu Sam Cap - TPJ 70%/State Partners 30%

  Licence area: 27km2 in Pu Sam Cap, northern Vietnam

  Status: Licence will become effective on payment of a deposit by TPJ of
  US$225,000 refundable after 6 months

  Previous work: 3,165km of airborne geophysics, ground geophysics, 5,476m
  of drilling

  Expenditure to date: Estimated US$4.6M

  Next steps: strategic review to look for partner or sole fund

  Potential work programme to include 1,500m of drilling of high-grade gold veins
  at Bai Bang to establish inferred resource in 2011

  Anticipated expenditure requirement of US$0.75-0.9M in 2011                       November 2010                              24

 ACA Howe: Vietnam - Pu Sam Cap

  TPJ 70%/30% State partners

  Located in the Tu Le volcanic rift system that contains several porphyry copper and
    epithermal-style gold-copper deposits in Vietnam and China

  Between 1996 and 1998 some 3,000 artisanal miners were extracting gold from a
    series of veins over an area covering 10 km2

  Veins vary from 4cm to 2m in thickness and have been traced through a vertical
    interval in excess of 500m and along strike lengths ranging up to 2,000m

  Experts who have visited the area agree that there is potential for a large porphyry
    style deposit. Float samples suggest that the porphyry system is multiphase and that
    the richest phase of the mineralisation has yet to be discovered. ACA Howe considers
    that the hotter part of the system has not been intersected (by TPJ drilling to date)

  ACA Howe considers that properly targeted drilling could delineate a mineral resource
    relatively quickly within the (Bai Bang gold) vein systems and that deeper drilling could
    identify a more significant bulk tonnage target                           November 2010                                      26

    Undertake financing in Q4 2010 to recapitalise company and drive growth

    Actively monitor JV progress; contribute pro-rata where justified to retain

    Maintain good communication with shareholders

    Examine the opportunities for acquiring pre-development stage assets

    Target additional licence applications & new assets in PNG, Vietnam and
      other countries in SE Asia                     November 2010                               27

    Objectives (2011)

   Crater Mountain, PNG
   (TPJ +/- 35%, reducing to 15-20% after Phase 2)
   Target: gold base-metal carbonate deposit
   - 0.5M oz (JORC inferred)

   Bai Bang, Vietnam (TPJ 70%)
   Target: high-grade IOCG-type vein gold
   - 0.5M oz (JORC inferred)

   Newmont Morobe JV, PNG (TPJ 30% maintained)
   First target: porphyry copper-gold
   - Drilling and potential inferred resource at Hides Creek

   Newcrest Manus Island JV, PNG (TPJ 15.2% maintained)
   First target: Low sulphidation vein gold
   - Inferred resource at Kisi Prospect                        November 2010        29
    Potential Objectives (2012)

     Build on targeted inferred resources to move to
      scoping/feasibility and development

     All the projects have this potential, with Morobe
      and Crater Mountain probably the best defined

     Contingent budget for 2012 includes potential
      feasibility work on all four joint ventures and in

     If Vietnam goes well, development in 2013 could
      be realistic                   November 2010         30
