Company Description

Chesapeake is focused on the exploration and development of precious metals projects in North America. Chesapeake's major project is its 100% owned Metates gold deposit located in Durango state, Mexico. Metates is one of the largest undeveloped gold and silver projects in the world. Independent Mining Consultants of Tucson, Arizona reported an updated NI 43-101 measured and indicated resource estimate of 19 million ounces of gold, 519 million ounces of silver and 4.2 billion pounds of zinc plus an inferred resource of 818,000 ounces gold, 21 million ounces silver and 130 million lbs of zinc. On a gold equivalent basis (gold-silver), Metates contains 27.9 million ounces of gold in measured and indicated material along with 1.2 million ounces in the inferred category. M3 Engineering & Technology of Tucson, Arizona completed a positive Preliminary Economic Assessment (“PEA”) of Metates at US$900 per ounce gold, US$18 per ounce silver and $1.00 per lb zinc. The PEA indicates a large 120,000 tpd open pit operation with a 20 year mine life. Annual gold equivalent production over the mine life is projected to average 1,158,000 ounces at a direct cost of US$434 per ounce including zinc credits. M3 expects to complete a pre-feasibility study on Metates in the first quarter in 2013. From opportunity, Chesapeake also recognizes that exploration success creates shareholder value. Our exploration is focused on gold projects that have the potential for district-scale success. Generative exploration has led to three potential bulk tonnage targets near Metates. Chesapeake plans to drill one of these prospects in 2013. Chesapeake's management and technical team have an exceptional track record. With Francisco Gold Corp., this team discovered El Sauzal and Marlin, two robust world-class gold mines now owned by Goldcorp Inc. in Mexico and Guatemala. Chesapeake is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol CKG.
