Forward Looking Statements
All statements in this presentation, other than statements of historical fact, are "forward-looking information" with respect to Pilot Gold within the meaning of applicable securities laws, including statements that address resource potential quantity and/or grade of minerals, potential size of a mineralized zone, potential
expansion of mineralization, the timing of and results of future resource estimates, timing of exploration and development plans and timing of obtaining permits or completing earn-in obligations at the Companys mineral projects. Forward-looking information is often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as
"seek", "anticipate", "plan", "continue", "planned", "expect", "project", "predict", "potential", "targeting", "intends", "believe", "potential", and similar expressions, or describes a "goal", or variation of such words and phrases or state that certain actions, events or results "may", "should", "could", "would", "might" or "will" be
taken, occur or be achieved. Forward-looking information is not a guarantee of future performance and is based upon a number of estimates and assumptions of management at the date the statements are made including, among others, assumptions about future prices of gold, copper, silver, molybdenum and other metal
prices, currency exchange rates and interest rates, favourable operating conditions, political stability, obtaining governmental approvals and financing on time, obtaining renewals for existing licences and permits and obtaining required licences and permits, labour stability, stability in market conditions, availability of
equipment, accuracy of any mineral resources and mineral reserves, successful resolution of disputes and anticipated costs and expenditures. Many assumptions are based on factors and events that are not within the control of Pilot Gold and there is no assurance they will prove to be correct.
Such forward-looking information, including, but not limited to, statements that address reserve or resource potential, the estimation of mineral reserves and resources, the timing and results of future resource estimates, proposed timing of exploration and development plans at the Companys mineral projects, reliance of
technical information provided by our joint venture partners or other third parties as related to any of our exploration properties, changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined, funding cash-calls made by TMST for ongoing expenditure at Halilaga, successful earn-in at TV Tower, including the ability to incur
the minimum annual Expenditure Requirements and future issuances of Common shares as consideration to complete the earn-in agreement, current and proposed exploration and development, estimated future working capital, uses of funds, future capital expenditures; information with respect to exploration results, the
timing and success of exploration activities generally; the costs and timing of the development of new deposits, potential quantity and/or grade of minerals, potential size of mineralized zone, potential expansion of mineralization, potential type of mining operation; the timing, timeline and possible outcome of permitting or
license renewal applications; the ability to maintain or convert the underlying licenses in accordance with the requirements of the Turkish Mining Law, government regulation of exploration and mining operations, environmental risks, including satisfaction of Turkish requirements relating to the periodic submissions of
Environmental Impact Assessments, title disputes or claims, and limitations on insurance coverage involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievement of Pilot Gold to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements
expressed or implied by such forward looking information. Such factors include, among others, risks related to the interpretation and actual results of historical production at certain of our exploration properties, reliance on technical information provided by our joint venture partners or other third parties as related to any of
our other exploration properties; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; current economic conditions; future prices of commodities; possible variations in grade or recovery rates; failure of equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; the failure of contracted parties to perform; labour disputes
and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals, financing or in the completion of exploration as well as those factors discussed in the Companys Annual Information Form (AIF) for the year ended December 31, 2012, dated March 27, 2013 in sections entitled "Risk Factors", under Pilot
Golds SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
Although Pilot Gold has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance
that such information will prove to be accurate as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Pilot Gold disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Cautionary Note to United States Investors Concerning Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources
Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have
economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied. The
mineral resource estimates referenced in this press release use the terms Indicated Mineral Resources and Inferred Mineral Resources. While these terms are defined in and required by Canadian regulations (under NI 43-101), these terms are not recognized by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
"Inferred Mineral Resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. The SEC normally only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute SEC Industry Guide 7 compliant reserves as in-place tonnage and grade without
reference to unit measures. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. Pilot Gold is not an SEC registered company.

Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. James N. Gray, P.Geo of Advantage Geoservices Ltd. is the Company's designated Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 for the KCD resource
estimate is independent of Pilot Gold and prepared the information that forms the basis for KCD resource. For more information, please refer to Pilot Golds news release titled Pilot Gold reports silver-rich maiden resource estimate for the KCD
deposit, TV Tower dated January 23, 2014 and filed to SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Further details of the estimation methods and procedures will be available in a NI 43-101 technical report, to be co-authored and released by SRK Consulting (Canada)
Inc. which will be filed on SEDAR, within 45 days from the date of the January 23, 2014 release. The Classified Mineral Resource estimate is quoted at a cut-off grade of 0.50 grams per tonne (g/t) gold equivalent (AuEq). At a 0.50 g/t AuEq cut-
off, the strip ratio is 1.47:1. Gold equivalence was calculated using a ratio of Au:Ag of $1200:$20, at 75% recovery and copper at $3/lb at 70% recovery.
Resource Estimate
KCD Metallurgy
Hazen Research Inc. contracted to carry out initial
metallurgical test work on material from KCD
Scope of work included cyanide leach and flotation
tests on various ore types, and comminution testing
Initial program contained 132 variability composites,
and 16 master composites representing a range of rock
and ore types and degree of oxidation
Au is relatively well-behaved oxide amenable to
heap leaching; good recovery to concentrate
Ag more variable leaches but probably not amenable
to heap leaching; recovery to concentrate variable
