Lake Shore Gold Corp., a gold mining company, engages in the mining, production, development, and exploration of mineral properties in Ontario and Québec. Principal Properties Timmins West Complex: The company’s Timmins West Complex covers an area of approximately 130 square kilometers and hosts its operating Timmins West Mine, exploration-stage projects at the Gold River Trend and 144, and a large area of highly prospective ground. Timmins West Mine: The Timmins West Mine comprises the Timmins Deposit, and the Thunder Creek Deposit. The Timmins Deposit property consists of a contiguous block of 23 claims (12 leased claims, which are grouped into two 21-year leases and 11 individual patented claims) covering approximately 395 hectares. All 23 claims cover both mining and surface rights. The Thunder Creek property is a 54-claim unit package adjacent to and southwest of the Timmins Deposit property. During 2012, approximately 112,000 metres of definition and delineation drilling were completed at Timmins West Mine, of which, approximately 61,000 metres were at Timmins Deposit, with the remainder at Thunder Creek. Gold River Trend: The Gold River Trend is an east-west trending mineralized deformation and alteration zone, traced for over 3 kilometres, located on the south side of the Timmins West sedimentary basin. The Gold River Trend is interpreted as a branch fault from the Destor Porcupine Fault. The Gold River Trend varies from 50 to 200 metres in width and is dominated by strongly sheared and hydrothermally altered sedimentary and volcanic rocks which have been intruded by lenses of porphyry. 144 Property: The 144 Property consists of 34 staked claims covering approximately 4.0 kilometres of the same volcanic/ultramafic intrusive/sedimentary contacts found at the Timmins West Mine. Bell Creek Complex: The Bell Creek Complex is an area of approximately 32 square kilometers that includes the Bell Creek Mine and Mill as well as the contiguous Marlhill, Vogel and Schumacher properties, as well as various other projects at various stages of exploration. Bell Creek Mine: The Bell Creek Mine comprises 3 crown mining leases and 5 freehold patents. A total of approximately 27,000 metres of definition and delineation drilling was completed at the Bell Creek Mine during 2012, mainly focused on delineation drilling of the North A Deep Zone and parallel vein structures in the footwall and hangingwall (North A2, and north B Veins) from platforms on the 475 and 535 metre levels to a vertical depth of approximately 750 metres. Bell Creek Mill: The Bell Creek mill is a conventional gold mill circuit, involving crushing and grinding, gravity and leaching, followed by a ‘Carbon-In-Pulp’ (CIP) process for gold recovery. The mill also includes associated buildings and surface infrastructure, offices and an approved tailings area. The company is in the process of expanding the Bell Creek Mill to a capacity of 3,000 tonnes per day. Vogel/Schumacher: The Vogel/Schumacher properties cover approximately 1.6 kilometres between Goldcorp Inc.’s high-grade Hoyle Pond Mine and Lake Shore Gold’s Bell Creek Mine. Marlhill: The Marlhill property is located north-east of the Bell Creek Mine and is a former producing mine. Fenn-Gib: The Fenn-Gib Project is located approximately 60 kilometres east of Timmins and 20 kilometres east of Matheson. The Project consists of 171 mining claims, patents and leases covering approximately 29 square kilometres.
