*Historical Data

Prima Fluorspar Corp. has not undertaken an independent verification to classify the historic resource estimate quoted from a Mineral Potential Compilation Report for the BC Department of Economic Development, written by Wright Engineers Limited and H.N. Halvorson Consultants Ltd., in January 17, 1975 as a current mineral resource. Neither has Prima independently verified the results of the previous exploration work. Therefore, the historical mineral resource should not be relied upon, but the issuer believes the information to be relevant and reasonably reliable. An unknown quantity of the 3.2 million tonnes are on mineral claims outside of the current Liard Fluorspar Property. However, based on the information available, the majority of the estimate is based on the deposits located on Prima's Liard Fluorspar Property. The key assumptions, parameters and methods of the resource estimate are unknown at this time. New deposit definition drilling is needed to develop a current resource estimate on the property. Prima believes that these historical mineral resources provide a conceptual indication of the potential of the property and are relevant to ongoing exploration.
