** The quoted disclosure of historical resource estimates for the Lac Cinquante Uranium Deposit was prepared by Aberford Resources Ltd in 1982, Abermin Corporation in 1986, and referenced by other subsequent sources.  It was prepared prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101 (NI 43-101) and should not be relied upon since it does not comply with NI 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects. A Qualified Person has not classified the historical estimates as current mineral resources or reserves, and therefore, Kivalliq is not treating them as such. Kivalliq has not completed any work to verify these estimates, but ongoing exploration programs are designed to evaluate the economic potential of the deposit and environs. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the deposit being classified a mineral resource or reserve. However, the historical uranium resource estimate is relevant because: it is indicative of a mineralized zone worthy of follow-up exploration as it is based on drilling and surface exploration  carried out by what is believed to be knowledgeable explorers in accordance with acceptable industry practices at the time of the estimate. Historic estimates were originally classified as “indicated” and “inferred” reserves, plus a third “possible” category; however, the equivalent categories acceptable under NI 43-101 are not known at this time.  

Certain disclosures in this release, including management's assessment of plans and projects and intentions with respect to listings of securities, use of proceeds and future exploration programs, constitute forward-looking statements that are subject to numerous risks, uncertainties and other factors relating to Kivalliq's operations as a mineral exploration company that may cause future results to differ materially from those expressed or implied in such forward-looking statements, including risks as to the completion of the plans and projects. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on forward-looking statements. Kivalliq expressly disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.
