1. Fines capture at the Aurora Mine operation commences in 2013 with the start-up of a commercial-scale composite tailings facility.

* Graph reflects actual fines capture at Syncrude's Mildred Lake site against regulatory approval related to Directive 074, which requires operators to reduce fluid fine tailings. Syncrude's tailings management plan was approved by regulators in 2010. The first quarterly fines capture report was as of Q3 2010, per Appendix B of ERCB Directive 074. The Directive also requires Dedicated Disposal Areas (DDAs) to be formed in a manner that ensures trafficable deposits. The performance criteria are based on the strength of the deposit. Syncrude will incorporate this performance data into future reporting.
