Results from Operations

Midway is continuing to advance the Pan project towards production in the second half of 2014, which has resulted in increased operating expenses. The operating loss of $4.5M for the quarter ended June 30, 2013, was primarily due to legal, audit, and accounting costs of $1.8M, salaries and benefits of $1.2M and mineral exploration expenditures of $0.7M. Legal, audit and accounting costs are related to legal expenses incurred on various corporate matters, and financial advisory services for investigating Pan Project financing options. Salaries and benefits have increased period over period as a result of increased staffing. Mineral exploration expenditures were driven by permitting activities at the Gold Rock project as well as salaries and labor costs across all the Company's projects.

The Company realized other income of $7.3M in the current quarter, related to recorded gains from the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities, due to a decrease in its stock price from March 31, 2013, to June 30, 2013. As the Company's stock price fluctuates, it will continue to recognize changes in the fair value of derivative liabilities thereby resulting in non-cash gains or losses.

The Company's consolidated net income attributable to common shareholders for the quarter ended June 30, 2013 was $2,436,696 or $0.02 basic and $0.00 diluted income per share compared to a loss of $4,227,245 or $0.04 basic and diluted loss per share for the comparable period in 2012.

All amounts are expressed in Canadian Dollars. The financial information is presented in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
