INVESTOR PRESENTATION June, 2016 Cautionary Statement Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information Certain information contained in this presentation constitutes forward-looking statements. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, are forward looking statements including statements with respect to the closing of the underwritten private placement and the Company s intentions for its Hermosa Project in Arizona, USA including, without limitation, future drilling and other work on the Taylor Deposit, and the statements under Outlook later in this document. Forward-looking statements are often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as may, will, seek, anticipate, believe, plan, estimate, budget, schedule, forecast, project, expect, intend, or similar expressions. The forward-looking statements are based on a number of assumptions which, while considered reasonable by Arizona Mining, are subject to risks and uncertainties. In addition to the assumptions herein, these assumptions include the assumptions described in Arizona Mining's management's discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2015 ( MD&A ). Arizona Mining cautions readers that forward-looking statements involve and are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by such forward-looking statements and forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future results, performance or achievement. These risks, uncertainties and factors include general business, economic, competitive, political, regulatory and social uncertainties; actual results of exploration activities and economic evaluations; fluctuations in currency exchange rates; changes in project parameters; changes in costs, including labour, infrastructure, operating and production costs; future prices of zinc, lead, silver and other minerals; variations of mineral grade or recovery rates; operating or technical difficulties in connection with exploration, development or mining activities, including the failure of plant, equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; delays in completion of exploration, development or construction activities; changes in government legislation and regulation; the ability to maintain and renew existing licenses and permits or obtain required licenses and permits in a timely manner; the ability to obtain financing on acceptable terms in a timely manner; contests over title to properties; employee relations and shortages of skilled personnel and contractors; the speculative nature of, and the risks involved in, the exploration, development and mining business; and the factors discussed in the section entitled Risks and Uncertainties in the MD&A. Although Arizona Mining has attempted to identify important risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual performance, achievements, actions, events, results or conditions to differ materially from those expressed in or implied by the forward-looking information, there may be other risks, uncertainties and other factors that cause performance, achievements, actions, events, results or conditions to differ from those anticipated, estimated or intended. Unless otherwise indicated, forward-looking statements contained herein are as of the date hereof and Arizona Mining disclaims any obligation to update any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or results or otherwise, except as required by applicable law. About Reserves and Resources This presentation uses the terms measured, indicated and inferred resources as a relative measure of the level of confidence in the resource estimate. Readers are cautioned that: (a) mineral resources are not economic mineral reserves; (b) the economic viability of resources that are not mineral reserves has not been demonstrated; and (c) it should not be assumed that further work on the stated resources will lead to mineral reserves that can be mined economically. In addition, inferred resources are considered too geologically speculative to have any economic considerations applied to them. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies or economic studies except for certain preliminary economic assessments. All Dollars are United States Dollars. All tons are short tons unless stated otherwise. 2 Company Profile Owns 100% of Hermosa Project Taylor Deposit discovered in 2015 a significant zinc, lead, and silver sulfide resource Well respected, high caliber management team including Richard Warke, Jim Gowans and Don Taylor Cash balance at June 1, 2016 of ~C$28 million (1) Large, under-explored land package (1) Includes net proceeds expected on closing of underwritten private placement. 3 Hermosa Project Location Company holds 100% interest in: 450 acres Patented Mining Claims 16,600+ acres Unpatented Mining Claims Current resource centered on the patented mining claims State of Arizona has long mining history Close to required infrastructure (1) 4 Taylor Deposit Significant Zn/Pb/Ag Discovery (1) 5 Highlighted Drill Intersections Taylor Deposit HDS-331: 41.5 feet (12.6 meters) at 29.41% Pb/Zn, 6.37 oz Ag, 0.89% Cu HDS-332: 43.5 feet (13.3 meters)at 34.12% Pb/Zn, 5.63 oz Ag, 0.07% Cu HDS-334: 425 feet (129.5 meters) at 7.47% Pb/Zn, 1.49 oz Ag, 0.14% Cu HDS-338: 61.5 feet (18.7 meters) at 29% Zn/Pb, 9.32 oz Ag, 0.28% Cu HDS-339: 57 feet (17.4 meters) at 45% Zn/Pb, 8.82 oz Ag, 0.17% Cu 6 Long Section Taylor Deposit 7 Cross Section Taylor Deposit 8 Mineralization Taylor Deposit Location relationship of sulfide mineralization (CRD) to manto oxide (MRZc and MRZs) 9 Inferred Resource Taylor Deposit 39.4 Million 11.04% ZnEq Zn Eq% Cutoff Zn Eq% Grade Tonnes (Mt) Pb% Zn% Cu% Ag g/t Results are based on a ZnEq grade calculated with the following metal prices: $0.85/lb for lead and zinc; $2.25/lb for copper; $15/oz for silver.
