In August 2011, Northern Gateway provided a copy of the AOA to a representative of the Gitxsan Nation,
and subsequently held lengthy discussions about a variety of economic development opportunities of
interest. Some of these interests included: green energy development, highway storage yard opportunities,
and joint venture opportunities.

In October 2011, Northern Gateway provided an update to the Gitxsan Nation membership at the 2011
Gitxsan Chief's Summit. Included in the presentation delivered was substantive information on Northern
Gateway, the AOA, and a hydroelectric development of interest to the Gitxsan Development Corporation
referred to as "Cascadero Falls."

In early November 2011, a Gitxsan Nation representative attended the Northern Gateway Business
Summit in Edmonton, Alberta. Also in November 2011, Northern Gateway sponsored Gitxan Nation
representatives to attend an Oil Sands Discovery Centre tour in Fort McMurray, Alberta. The tour
provided substantial insight into oil sands production and transportation.

Also, in November 2011, Northern Gateway attended a meeting with a representative of the Gitxsan
Nation to discuss the potential execution of the AOA, including a detailed review of key provisions
contained therein. Subsequently, in November 2011, Northern Gateway had a meeting with
representatives from the Gitxsan Development Corporation to discuss the AOA.

In December 2011, the Gitxsan Nation signed the AOA, and shortly thereafter, Chief Elmer Derrick made
himself available for a press conference which disclosed the execution of the agreement. Also, in
December 2011, a Project representative attended a meeting with the Gitxsan Hereditary Chiefs to discuss
the signing of the AOA, and to answer questions relating to the agreement.

In February 2012, a representative of the Project met with a representative of the Gitxsan Development
Corporation to discuss the political fallout which arose from the Gitxsan Nation's signing of the AOA.

In May 2012, there were several meetings between representatives of the Gitxsan Development
Corporation and the Project to discuss entering into a protocol agreement which would have as one of its
objectives the goal of confirming to the Gitxsan membership the benefits which will arise to the Gitxsan
Nation as a result of their execution of the AOA. A community meeting was planned to discuss this in
June 2012, however, the meeting was postponed at the request of the Gitxsan Development Corporation
until the next meeting, expected to occur sometime in August 2012, to allow other more time-sensitive
Gitxsan Nation agenda items to be dealt with at the June 2012 meeting.

In addition to the engagement activities summarized above, Northern Gateway continues to notify the
Gitxsan Nation of updates and supplementary information filed with the JRP relating to the Project's
regulatory application.
