SUBJECT: Response to the addendum to the description of the Magino Gold Project submitted by Prodigy Gold Incorporated to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency on November 17, 2016

Dear Mr. Napier,

Thank you for the letter of November 17, 2016 in regards to the description of the Magino Gold Project (the Project). The Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (the Agency) considers this an addendum to the description of the Project. Upon review, the Agency has determined that no revisions are required to the Guidelines for the Preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement pursuant to the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 for the Magino Gold Project (EIS Guidelines) issued on November 1, 2013 (http://www.ceaa.gc.ca/050/documents/p80044/96051E.pdf).

The November 17, 2016 letter is part of the environmental assessment project file and will be posted on the online public registry under reference number 80044 (http://www.ceaa.gc.ca).

Next Steps in the Federal Environmental Assessment

The next step for the environmental assessment process is for Prodigy Gold Incorporated (Prodigy) to prepare and submit a complete Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Prodigy remains responsible for generating a final EIS that meets all requirements of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012 and the EIS Guidelines.

Upon receipt of the final EIS documentation,the Agency will take a maximum of 30 days, that are not counted against the federal environmental assessment timeline, to form an opinion on whether the information required by the EIS Guidelines is present in a manner that would allow for the Agency to begin its technical review of the potential environmental effects of the Project.

If the Agency has not come to a conclusion after 30 days, the timeline will resume the following day. For further information on the approach to managing federal timelines, please consult the Agency's "Operational Policy Statement: Information Requests and Timelines, February 2016" at http://www.ceaa-acee.gc.ca/default.asp?lang=En&n=E65B85D2-1.
