    Sault Au Cochons contains lenses of OAGN. These lenses occur close to the border and inside theLabrieville Anorthosite (LBV) which is host to Argex Titaniums Lac Brl deposit. In the region thepreviously mapped lenses of OAGN have an approximate strike length of 20 km, and Jourdan hasacquired by staking approximately 15.2 km of these strong mineral potential lenses. There is 11.2 kmof strike length on the SAC Phosphate Property and 4 km of strike length has been traced on the LacCatherine Phosphate Property on surface (See Map 2).

    On Thursday October 24, 2013, Arianna Phosphate released the results of its Lac A Paul FeasibilityStudy:

    A Net Present Value of US$ 1,910.1 million at an 8% discount rate, an Internal Rate of Return of20.7% with a capital payback of 4.4 years before taxes and mining duties. The mine life estimate is25.75 years (excluding pre-production) with an average annual phosphate concentrate production of 3million tonnes with a grade of 38.6% P2O5 and with average mill recovery of 90.0%.

    Jourdan continues to target and consolidate low risk and high potential value phosphate propertiesalong the north shore of the St. Lawrence River near Baie Comeau, Quebec. The results reported by

    Arianne for its Lac A Paul Feasibility Study, as well The Mine Arnaud partnership owned byInvestissement Qubec (a Crown corporation), and Yara International ASA (a Norwegian company),demonstrate that large economic phosphate deposits in the region where Jourdan operates is not aunique occurrence. In the map below, the location of the Mine Arnaud partnership as well as the Lac

    A Paul Property are displayed relative to the location of communities along the St. Lawrence River inQuebec and Jourdans Quebec phosphate projects.
