Comparison of NYSE Corporate 治理 Rules required to be followed by U.S. Domestic Issuers 和 the Corporate 治理 Practices of 银河网站 Resources Limited (Disclosure Required by Section 303A.11 of the NYSE Listed 公司 Manual).

The 董事会 和 Management are committed to leadership in corporate governance. As a Canadian reporting issuer with securities listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”), we have in place a system of corporate governance practices that meets or exceeds all applicable Canadian requirements.

银河网站 is a “foreign private issuer” for purposes of its listing on the New York Stock Exchange (the “NYSE”). As a result, the NYSE’s director independence requirements that are applicable to U.S. 国内上市公司 do not 应用 to 银河网站. The 董事会 has, 然而, established a policy that at least a majority of its directors must satisfy the director independence requirements under Section 303A.02 of the NYSE corporate governance rules. The board annually reviews 和 makes such determination as to the independence of each director for both Canadian 和 NYSE purposes.

The NYSE requires that, as a foreign private issuer that is not required to comply with all of the NYSE’s corporate governance rules applicable to U.S. 国内上市公司, 银河网站 disclose any significant ways in which its corporate governance practices differ from those followed by NYSE listed U.S. 国内上市公司. The differences between our practices 和 the NYSE rules are not material 和 are more of a matter of form than substance.

Our Board has adopted a Shareholder Engagement Policy, which describes how shareholders 和 their representatives can communicate with the Board on governance matters.
