TITAN IRON ORE CORP.
(FORMERLY DIGITAL YEARBOOK, INC.)
(AN EXPLORATION STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2012
(Expressed in US dollars)

1.  NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF BUSINESS

Titan Iron Ore Corp. (the Company) (formerly Digital Yearbook, Inc.) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on June 5, 2007. At its inception, the Company was engaged in developing and offering software products for the creation of interactive digital yearbook software for high schools.

Effective June 15, 2011, the Company completed a merger with its subsidiary, Titan Iron Ore Corp., a Nevada corporation, which was incorporated solely to effect a change in our name from “Digital Yearbook Inc.” to “Titan Iron Ore Corp.” effective becoming an exploration stage company. The Company’s principal business includes the acquisition, and exploration of mineral properties.
 
Also effective June 15, 2011, the Company effected a 37 to one forward stock split of our authorized and issued and outstanding common stock.  As a result, 5,151,000 shares of common stock outstanding increased to 190,587,000 shares of common stock. Subsequently, on June 20, 2011, the Company issued 2,100,000 common shares pursuant to a private placement unit offering, increasing the number of shares of common stock outstanding to 192,687,000. Effective June 30, 2011 and in connection with the acquisition of an option to purchase a mineral property, certain shareholders surrendered 142,950,000 common shares of the Company. As a result of the Company’s cancellation of these shares, the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock decreased to 49,737,000. On January 10, 2012, the Company issued 1,334,000 shares in a private placement bringing the total outstanding shares to 51,071,000.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which implies that the Company would continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. As at March 31, 2012 the Company has accumulated losses of $2,276,239 since inception and its operations continue to be funded primarily from sales of its stock. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern, including completion of the acquisition, exploration and development of its mineral properties is dependent on the Company’s ability to obtain the necessary financing from sales of its stock financings. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

2.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Basis of Presentation
These financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and are expressed in US dollars. The Company’s fiscal year end is December 31, 2012.

Interim Financial Statements
The interim unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions for Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Form 10-Q. They do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. Therefore, these financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2011, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on April 16, 2012, with the SEC.

The interim financial statements included herein are unaudited; however, they contain all normal recurring accruals and adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position as at March 31, 2012 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for future quarters or the full year ending December 31, 2012.

2.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)
 
Use of Estimates
The preparation of these statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses in the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to useful life and recoverability of long-lived assets, deferred income tax asset valuations, asset retirement obligations, financial instrument valuations, and loss contingencies. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

The Company recognizes revenue when products are fully delivered or services have been provided and collection is reasonably assured.

Advertising Costs
The Company’s policy regarding advertising is to expense advertising when incurred.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, the Company assesses the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows.

If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, the Company recognizes an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.

Stock-based compensation
The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Based Compensation, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense based on estimated fair values for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options.

ASC 718 requires companies to estimate the fair value of share-based awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model. The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model as its method in determining fair value. This model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables. These subjective variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the terms of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the statement of operations over the requisite service period.

Mineral Property Costs
The Company is in the exploration stage and has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations. It is primarily engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties. Mineral property exploration costs are expensed as incurred. Mineral property acquisition costs are capitalized.  The Company assesses the carrying costs for impairment, whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying cost may not be recoverable under ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment at each reporting date. When it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed as a result of establishing proven and probable reserves, the costs then incurred to develop such property, will be capitalized. Such costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated recoverable reserves. If mineral properties are subsequently abandoned or impaired, any capitalized costs will be charged to operations.

2.  SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)
 
Asset Retirement Obligations
The Company records asset retirement obligations in accordance with ASC 410-20, Asset Retirement Obligations, which addresses financial accounting and reporting for obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated retirement costs. The standard applies to legal obligations associated with the retirement of long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and normal use of the asset. ASC 410-20 requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred if a reasonable estimate of fair value can be made. The fair value of the liability is added to the carrying amount of the associated asset and this additional carrying amount is depreciated over the life of the asset. The liability is accreted at the end of each period through charges to operating expense. If the obligation is settled for other than the carrying amount of the liability, the Company will recognize a gain or loss on settlement. As at March 31, 2012, the Company has not incurred any asset retirement obligation related to the exploration of its mineral property option.

Comprehensive Loss
ASC 220, Comprehensive Income establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the consolidated financial statements. As at March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, the Company has no items that represent other comprehensive loss and, therefore, has not included a schedule of other comprehensive loss in the financial statements.

Financial Instruments
FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value, as required by ASC 820, must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.

The Company’s assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurements requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of the assets and liabilities being measured and their placement within the fair value hierarchy. The carrying values of cash, accounts payable, and due to related parties approximate fair values because of the short-term maturity of these instruments. Unless otherwise noted, it is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant interest, currency or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

Basic and Diluted Net Loss Per Share
The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share.  ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the statement of operations. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. Shares underlying these securities totaled approximately 5,667,000 as of March 31, 2012.

Income Taxes
The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes. The asset and liability method provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and for operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is believed more likely than not to be realized.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company has implemented all other new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

3.  MINERAL PROPERTY OPTIONS

Strong Creek and Iron Mountain Properties
Effective June 30, 2011 and in connection with the entry into an agreement (the “Acquisition Agreement”) with J2 Mining Ventures Ltd. (“J2 Mining”) dated June 13, 2011, the Company completed the acquisition of a 100% right, title and interest in and to a properties (Strong Creek and Iron Mountain) option agreement (the “Option Agreement”) from J2 Mining with respect to an iron ore mineral property located in Albany County, Wyoming by entering into an assignment of mineral property option agreement with J2 Mining and Wyomex LLC (the “Assignment Agreement”), whereby the Company was assigned the 100% right, title and interest in and the Option Agreement from J2 Mining.

The Option Agreement assigned to the Company from J2 Mining on June 30, 2011, was originally entered into on May 26, 2011 between J2 Mining and Wyomex LLC, pursuant to which Wyomex LLC (“Optionor”), granted to J2 Mining, as optionee, an exclusive right and option to acquire 100% undivided legal and beneficial interests in and to certain unpatented lode mining claims, fee lands, leased lands, and other interests in real property situated in Albany County, Wyoming (the “Wyoming Iron Complex”). Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement, J2 Mining agreed to assign all its rights and interests in the property and the Option Agreement, and transfer all of its obligations under the Option Agreement, to the Company.

The term of the option commenced on May 26, 2011 and could be extended for a maximum of six successive one-month periods, at the sole election of the Company, through notice to Wyomex LLC and tender of $5,000 from the Company to Wyomex LLC for each of the first three additional months and $15,000 for each additional month for months four through six. As at March 31, 2012, total payments of $145,000 had been made.

Prior to December 31, 2010, the Company provided written notice to the Optionor of its intent to exercise its option. Subsequent to the balance sheet date, on April 10, 2012, the Company executed an asset purchase agreement (see Note 11) to exercise its option for consideration of $7,000,000, consisting of the following:

 
a)

b)
$60,000 of consideration previously paid and received by the Optionor (see above);
 
c)
A $6,855,000 promissory note (issued on April 10, 2012), non-interest bearing, secured by the Strong Creek and Iron Mountain properties. The note is repayable through advance minimum royalty payments of $62,500 commencing six months from the date of closing and after receipt of the initial payment, and every six months thereafter, until the commencement of commercial production from the property. At the commencement of commercial production from the properties, the semi-annual advance minimum royalty shall convert to a 4.5% gross metal value royalty on iron ore and/or other mineral materials produced and sold from the property and, except for events of force majeure, in no event shall the production royalty paid to the Optionor be less than $150,000 in any given calendar year. Repayment of the promissory note may be demanded by the Optionor upon an event of default as defined in the agreement.

Upon full settlement of the promissory note, the production royalty shall be reduced, and the Company shall pay the Optionor a gross metal value royalty of 1.5% for all iron product and/or other mineral materials mined and sold from the property.

9.  FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENT

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures require an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1
Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. Valuations are based on quoted prices that are readily and regularly available in an active market and do not entail a significant degree of judgment.

Level 2
Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are other than Level 1 observable inputs such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

Level 2 instruments require more management judgment and subjectivity as compared to Level 1 instruments. For instance: determining which instruments are most similar to the instrument being priced requires management to identify a sample of similar securities based on the coupon rates, maturity, issuer, credit rating and instrument type, and subjectively select an individual security or multiple securities that are deemed most similar to the security being priced; and determining whether a market is considered active requires management judgment.

Level 3
Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities. The determination of fair value for Level 3 instruments requires the most management judgment and subjectivity.

Pursuant to ASC 825, cash is based on "Level 1" inputs. The Company believes that the recorded values of accounts payable approximate their current fair values because of their nature or respective relatively short durations.

The Option Agreement assigned to us from J2 Mining on September 30, 2011 was entered into on May 26, 2011 between J2 Mining and Wyomex LLC, pursuant to which Wyomex LLC, as optionor, granted to J2 Mining, as optionee, an exclusive right and option to acquire 100% undivided legal and beneficial interests in and to certain unpatented lode mining claims, fee lands, leased lands, and other interests in real property situated in Albany County, Wyoming (the “Wyoming Iron Complex”). Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement, J2 Mining agreed to assign all its rights and interests in the property and the Option Agreement, and transfer all of its obligations under the Option Agreement, to our company, and our company accepted and agreed to be bound by the terms of the Option Agreement.
 
The term of the option commenced on May 26, 2011 and was extended for a total of six successive one-month periods, up through and including December 26, 2011, by providing notice to Wyomex LLC and payment of $5,000 for each of the first three additional months and $15,000 for the last three additional months (for a total payment of $60,000). Our company elected to exercise the option on December 21, 2011 by giving Wyomex LLC written notice of such election.
 
On April 10, 2012, we entered into and closed an asset purchase agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Wyomex LLC whereby the Company purchased the Wyoming Iron Complex mineral project located in Albany County, Wyoming.
 
The purchase price for the Wyoming Iron Complex is $7,000,000 payable as follows:

 
·
Acknowledgement by Wyomex and credit to us of the sum of US$60,000, previously received by Wyomex for expenses and option payments related to the Wyoming Iron Complex.
     
 
·
Immediate payment by us to Wyomex of US$85,000, which payment was received by Wyomex on April 1, 2012.
     
 
·
A promissory note (the “Note”) in the principal amount of US$6,855,000 was executed by us and delivered to Wyomex on April 10, 2012. The Note is  interest-free. All Advance Production Payments and Production Payments (defined below) paid to Wyomex will be credited against any outstanding balance of or amounts due under the Note. The Note is secured by a purchase money mortgage (the “Mortgage”).
     
 
·
Commencing six months from the date of closing and every six months thereafter, we will pay Wyomex, as an advance production payment, the initial amount of $62,500 (the “Advance Production Payment”), as adjusted for inflation, until Commencement of Commercial Production from the Property, which is defined as the first quarter of production in which 4.5 percent of the metal values or gross proceeds from the sales of mineral materials derived from the Wyoming Iron Complex exceeds the amount of the Advance Production Payment.
     
 
·
We assumed all liabilities of Wyomex to make all lease or other payments required following the closing under the mineral lease agreement between Wyomex and Chugwater Iron Company (the “Mineral Lease Agreement”) relating to certain leased real property (the “Leased Real Property”), including payment of real property taxes and payment of the sum of $1,000 per month to be paid as an advance production payment under the Mineral Lease Agreement.

·
At the Commencement of Commercial Production, the Advance Production Payment is converted to a 4.5% gross metal value payment (“GMP”) on iron ore, concentrates, and/or other mineral materials produced and sold from the Wyoming Iron Complex by us to unrelated third parties (the “Production Payment”), provided, that for the Leased Real Property, the GMP payable to Wyomex is reduced by 50% such that Wyomex receives a 2.25% GMP on production from such lands, and the owner of the Leased Real Property shall receive the balance or a 2.25% GMP. Except for events of force majeure (including non-operation of the facilities after startup) in no event shall the total Production Payment paid by us to Wyomex and the owner of the Leased Real Property be less than US$150,000 in any given calendar year. All Advance Production Payments and Production Payments, as they relate to Leased Real Property, shall be reduced to Wyomex by the amounts of such payments that must be transmitted to the lessor of the Leased Real Property in accordance with the terms and obligations of the Mineral Lease for the Leased Real Property.
 
Subsequent to the payment by us of the full amount of $7 million, the Purchase Price is deemed to be satisfied, and the Production Payment is reduced such that we pay to Wyomex, and the owner of the Leased Real Property, a total GMP royalty of 1.5% for all iron product and/or other mineral materials produced and sold from the Wyoming Iron Complex during the previous month.  The Production Payments due to Wyomex and the owner of Leased Real Property shall be similarly reduced, as provided above, such that Wyomex receives a 0.75% GMP on such assets, and the owner of Leased Real Property shall receive a 0.75% GMP.
 
The Wyoming Iron Complex consist of certain unpatented lode mining claims situated in an unorganized mining district, Albany County, Wyoming, in Sections 14 and 24, Township 19 North, Range 72 West, 6th Principal Meridian, the names of which and the place of record of the location notices thereof in the official records of the county recorder and the authorized office of the Bureau of Land Management.
 
Our Current Business
 
With the entry into the Asset Purchase Agreement with respect to the Wyoming Iron Complex, we abandoned our efforts as an interactive software developer, and we are focusing our efforts in the mineral exploration. Our business plan is to proceed with the exploration of the Wyoming Iron Complex consisting of mineral leases on 320 acres and 23 unpatented mining claims aggregating approximately 463 acres located in the county of Albany, Wyoming, USA.
 
Proposed Initial Work Program
 
The initial two phases lasted six to seven months and entailed expenditures of approximately $258,000.
 
The initial phase lasted three months and included:
     
 
·
Compilation of all existing geological data into one comprehensive data base for each of  the Strong Creek and Iron Mountain Deposits; and
     
 
·
Development of an additional work program for the properties.
 
The second phase took a further three to four months. The specific work undertaken included confirmation drilling of existing drill targets to validate historic data (2000 feet).
 
The third phase will involve expansion and infill drilling to expand the resource on the Strong Creek deposit to upgrade and enhance the quality of the resource data base, bulk testing of Iron Mountain Ores to confirm the validity of the Krupp Renn  or other pyrometallurgical process as applied to Strong Creek and Iron Mountain ores, bench scale tests on the Strong Creek ores to validate the Hazen /USBM separation  results, and the initiation of a prefeasibility study based on historic and current data. This work program is expected to take at least  one year and entail an aggregate expenditure of up to $8 million .
 
Once we complete each phase of exploration, we will make a decision as to whether or not and how we proceed with each successive phase based upon the analysis of the results of that program.

Progress
 
On October 13, 2011, we announced a targeted first phase drilling program of 1700 feet at the Wyoming Iron Complex. A total of three holes drilled by Union Pacific Resources (c. 1955) and the State of Wyoming (1995) were  twinned for a total of 2000 feet in an effort to duplicate the results of those earlier programs. One hole was  extended to a  depth of  700 feet to expand upon the vertical potential of the ore body.  All work during this phase was  done on the Strong Creek property, the larger of the two prospects within the Wyoming Iron Complex. The drilling was  diamond core of HQ size (2½ inches in diameter). Results of this initial drilling campaign were announced via press releases dated February 8, 2012, February 22, 2012 and March 14, 2012. We announced that each of the holes demonstrated potential ore-grade material over virtually the entire length of each hole with grades as high as 22.8% Fe and 8.6%b Ti.
 
Option Agreement with Globex Mining
 
On July 19, 2011, Titan entered into an option agreement with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. ("Globex") effective July 12, 2011 (the "Globex Agreement"), pursuant to which Globex granted the Company the right (the "Option") for a period of 90 days from July 12, 2011 to acquire an undivided 100% interest in and to 202 mining claims (the "Property") located in the Labrador trough area in the Province of Quebec, Canada.
 
In September 2011, we initiated a geological reconnaissance survey of a magnetic geophysical anomaly located on the Labrador Trough iron property.  This survey determined that the anomaly was not of sufficient mineral type, grade or size to merit further exploration costs.  Accordingly, we have determined to drop the option on the Labrador Trough iron property and on October 12, 2011 notified the owner of the property that we will not be exercising its option to acquire the property.
 
Plan of Operation
 
We are a mineral exploration company. Our plan of operation is to carry out exploration work on our Wyoming Iron Complex in order to ascertain whether it possesses commercially exploitable quantities of iron ore and other metals. We intend to primarily explore for iron ore but if we discover that our mineral property hold potential for other minerals that our management determines are worth exploring further, then we intend to explore for those other minerals. We will not be able to determine whether or not the property contains a commercially exploitable mineral deposit, or reserve, until appropriate exploratory work is done and an economic evaluation based on that work indicates economic viability.
 
According to our plan of operation for a full exploration program, we estimate our cash needs for the next 12 months to be as follows:

Expense
 
Amount
 
Mineral exploration expenses for Wyoming Complex
  $ 8,000,000  
Amounts payable under acquisition agreement for Wyoming Iron Complex
    210,000  
Professional Fees

General Administrative Expenses
    650,000  
Investor Relations
    120,000  
Travel
    30,000  
Total
  $ 9,140,000  
 
We have no ongoing revenues, have achieved losses since inception, have been issued a going concern opinion by our auditors and rely upon the sale of our securities to fund operations.  Accordingly, we will be dependent on future additional financing in order to fund our anticipated cash needs, and to seek other business opportunities in the mining industry or new business opportunities. There are no assurances that we will be able to complete such future additional financings or seek other business opportunities.
 
We are considered an exploration stage company as we are involved in the examination and investigation of the mineral property that we believe may contain valuable minerals, for the purpose of discovering the presence of ore, if any, and its extent. Since we are an exploration stage company, there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on our property, and a great deal of further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility for our exploration is determined. We have no known reserves of any type of mineral. To date, we have not discovered an economically viable mineral deposit on the mineral property, and there is no assurance that we will discover one.

Results of Operations
 
From Inception on June 5, 2007 through March 31, 2012
 
Our cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2012 was $850,207. For the period from inception (June 5, 2007) to March 31, 2012 we had nil operating revenues and incurred net loss of $2,276,239 consisting primarily of general and administrative expenses and professional fees incurred in connection with the day-to-day operation of our business and filing of our periodic reports and costs related to our mineral properties.
 
As a result of not receiving any revenues and ongoing expenditures in pursuit of our business, we have incurred net losses since our inception. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, our net loss was $1,246,043. Since our inception to March 31, 2012, our accumulated deficit was $2,276,239.
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to 2011
 
Our net loss and comprehensive loss for our interim period ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 and the changes between those periods for the respective items are summarized as follows:

Total operating expenses were $1,246,044 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to $62 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Our operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 primarily consists of stock-based compensation and general and administrative expenses.  All expenses increased due to the Company beginning operations in earnest in the year 2011.

As of March 31, 2012, we had $850,207 in cash, as compared to $118,066 as of December 31, 2011. This increase in cash is primarily due to the closing of a private placement. On January 11, 2012, we accepted two subscription agreements and issued an aggregate of 1,334,000 units of our company to two investors at a price of $0.75 per unit for gross proceeds of $1,000,500.  Each unit is comprised of one share of our common stock and one half of one share purchase warrant.  One whole share purchase warrant is exercisable into one share of our common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share until January 11, 2015.
 
As of March 31, 2012, we has accounts payable of $83,800, as compared to $21,457 as of December 31, 2011. The increase in our accounts payable is a result of increased exploration expenses and expenses related to the closing of the Wyomex option.

Cash provided from financing activities increased during the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011 due the closing of a private placement discussed above.
 
Going Concern
 
At March 31, 2012, we had an accumulated deficit of $2,276,239 since our inception and incurred a net loss of $1,246,043 for the three month period ended March 31, 2012.  We expect to incur further losses in the development of our business, all of which casts substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Our independent auditors included an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern in their report on our annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011.
 
We have generated minimal revenues and have incurred losses since inception. Accordingly, we will be dependent on future additional financing in order to seek other business opportunities in the mining industry or new business opportunities. We are considered an exploration stage company as we are involved in the examination and investigation of the mineral property that we believe may contain valuable minerals, for the purpose of discovering the presence of ore, if any, and its extent. Since we are an exploration stage company, there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on our property, and a great deal of further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility for our exploration is determined. We have no known reserves of any type of mineral. To date, we have not discovered an economically viable mineral deposit on the mineral property, and there is no assurance that we will discover one.

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures”, as that term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e), promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.  Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our company’s reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, who is also our principal accounting officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
As required by paragraph (b) of Rules 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, evaluated our company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Based on this evaluation, our management concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.
 
Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, is responsible for establishing and maintaining a process to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.
 
Our management, with the participation of our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2012.  Our management’s evaluation of our internal control over financial reporting was based on the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework, issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of March 31, 2012 due to the following material weaknesses which are indicative of many small companies with small staff: (i) inadequate segregation of duties and ineffective risk assessment; and (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.
 
A material weakness is a deficiency or a combination of control deficiencies in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
 
Our principal executive officer and our principal financial officer do not expect that our disclosure controls or our internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additional controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.
 
PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
We know of no material, existing or pending legal proceedings against us, nor are we involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation. There are no proceedings in which any of our directors, officers or affiliates, or any registered or beneficial shareholder, is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to our company.
 
ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS.
 
In addition to other information in this report, the following risk factors should be carefully considered in evaluating our business because such factors may have a significant impact on our business, operating results, liquidity and financial condition. As a result of the risk factors set forth below, actual results could differ materially from those projected in any forward-looking statements. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us, or that we currently consider to be immaterial, may also impact our business, operating results, liquidity and financial condition. If any such risks occur, our business, operating results, liquidity and financial condition could be materially affected in an adverse manner. Under such circumstances, the trading price of our securities could decline, and you may lose all or part of your investment.
 
Risks Associated with Mining
 
All of our mineral properties are in the exploration stage. There is no assurance that we can establish the existence of any mineral resource on any of our properties in commercially exploitable quantities. Until we can do so, we cannot earn any revenues from operations and if we do not do so we will lose all of the funds that we expend on exploration. If we do not discover any mineral resource in a commercially exploitable quantity, our business could fail.
 
We have not established that our mineral properties contain any mineral reserve, nor can there be any assurance that we will be able to do so. If we do not, our business could fail.
 
A mineral reserve is defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission in its Industry Guide 7 (which can be viewed over the Internet at http://www.sec.gov/divisions/corpfin/forms/industry.htm#secguide7) as that part of a mineral deposit which could be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve determination. The probability of an individual prospect ever having a “reserve” that meets the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Industry Guide 7 is extremely remote; in all probability our mineral properties  do not contain any ‘reserve’ and any funds that we spend on exploration will probably be lost.
 
Even if we do eventually discover a mineral reserve on one or more of our properties, there can be no assurance that we will be able to develop our properties into producing mines and extract those resources. Both mineral exploration and development involve a high degree of risk and few properties which are explored are ultimately developed into producing mines.
 
The commercial viability of an established mineral deposit will depend on a number of factors including, by way of example, the size, grade and other attributes of the mineral deposit, the proximity of the resource to infrastructure such as a smelter or processing facilities, power, and water, roads and a point for shipping, available workforce, government regulation, proximity to markets and consumers, and market prices. Most of these factors will be beyond our control, and any of them could increase costs and make extraction of any identified mineral resource unprofitable.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
Mineral operations are subject to applicable law and government regulation. Even if we discover a mineral resource in a commercially exploitable quantity, these laws and regulations could restrict or prohibit the exploitation of that mineral resource. If we cannot exploit any mineral resource that we might discover on our properties, our business may fail.
 
Both mineral exploration and extraction require permits from various foreign, federal, state, provincial and local governmental authorities and are governed by laws and regulations, including those with respect to prospecting, mine development, mineral production, transport, export, taxation, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, toxic substances, land use, environmental protection, mine safety and other matters. There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain or maintain any of the permits or bonds required for the continued exploration of our mineral properties or for the construction and operation of a mine on our properties at economically viable costs. If we cannot accomplish these objectives, our business could fail.
 
There can be no assurance that we can comply with all material laws and regulations that apply to our activities. Current laws and regulations could be amended and we might not be able to comply with them, as amended. Further, there can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain or maintain all permits or bonds necessary for our future operations, or that we will be able to obtain them on reasonable terms. To the extent such approvals are required and are not obtained, we may be delayed or prohibited from proceeding with planned exploration or development of our mineral properties.
 
Exploration development and exploitation activities are subject to comprehensive regulation and permitting which may cause substantial delays or require capital outlays in excess of those anticipated causing a material adverse effect on us.
 
Exploration, development and exploitation activities are subject to federal, provincial, state and local laws, regulations and policies, including laws regulating permitting, bonding, and the removal of natural resources from the ground and the discharge of materials into the environment. Exploration, development and exploitation activities are also subject to federal, provincial, state and local laws and regulations which seek to maintain health and safety standards by regulating the design and use of drilling methods and equipment and other operational activities.
 
Environmental and other legal standards imposed by federal, provincial, state or local authorities may be changed and any such changes may prevent us from conducting planned activities or may increase our costs of doing so, which could have material adverse effects on our business. Moreover, compliance with such laws may cause substantial delays or require capital outlays in excess of those anticipated, thus causing a material adverse effect on us. Additionally, we may be subject to liability for pollution or other environmental damages that we may not be able to or elect not to insure against due to prohibitive premium costs and other reasons. Any laws, regulations or policies of any government body or regulatory agency may be changed, applied or interpreted in a manner which could materially alter and negatively affect our ability to carry on our business.
 
If we establish the existence of a mineral resource on any of our properties in a commercially exploitable quantity, we will require additional capital in order to develop the property into a producing mine. If we cannot raise this additional capital, we will not be able to exploit the resource, and our business could fail.
 
If we do discover mineral resources in commercially exploitable quantities on any of our properties, we will be required to expend substantial sums of money to explore and fully establish the extent of the resource, develop processes to extract it and develop extraction and processing facilities and infrastructure. Although we may derive substantial benefits from the discovery of a major deposit, there can be no assurance that such a resource will be large enough to justify commercial operations, nor can there be any assurance that we will be able to raise the funds required for development on a timely basis. If we cannot raise the necessary capital or complete the necessary facilities and infrastructure, our business may fail.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
Mineral exploration and development is subject to extraordinary operating risks. We do not currently insure against these risks. In the event of a cave-in or similar occurrence, our liability may exceed our resources, which would have an adverse impact on our company.
 
Mineral exploration, development and production involves many risks which even a combination of experience, knowledge and careful evaluation may not be able to overcome. Our operations will be subject to all the geological, technical and operating hazards and risks inherent in the exploration for mineral resources and, if we discover a mineral resource in commercially exploitable quantity, our operations could be subject to all of the hazards and risks inherent in the development and production of resources, including liability for pollution, cave-ins or similar hazards against which we cannot insure or against which we may elect not to insure. Any such event could result in work stoppages and damage to property, including damage to the environment. We do not currently maintain any insurance coverage against these operating hazards. The payment of any liabilities that arise from any such occurrence would have a material adverse impact on our company.
 
Mineral prices are subject to dramatic and unpredictable fluctuations.
 
We expect to derive revenues, if any, either from the sale of our mineral resource properties or from the extraction and sale of iron ore and associated byproducts. The price of those commodities has fluctuated widely in recent years, and is affected by numerous factors beyond our control, including international, economic and political trends, expectations of inflation, currency exchange fluctuations, interest rates, global or regional consumptive patterns, speculative activities and increased production due to new extraction developments and improved extraction and production methods. The effect of these factors on the price of base and precious metals, and therefore the economic viability of any of our exploration properties and projects, cannot accurately be predicted.
 
The mining industry is highly competitive and there is no assurance that we will be successful in acquiring additional mineral claims or selling all of the products that we produce. If we cannot acquire properties to explore for mineral resources, or successfully sell our mineral products, we may be required to reduce or cease operations.
 
The mineral exploration, development, and production industry is largely un-integrated. We compete with other exploration companies looking for mineral resource properties. While we compete with other exploration companies in the effort to locate and acquire mineral resource properties, we may also  compete with them for the removal or sales of mineral products from our properties if we should eventually discover the presence of them in quantities sufficient to make production economically feasible. Readily available markets for the sale of mineral products do not always exist for all mineral commodities Therefore, we may not  be able to sell all of the  mineral products that we identify and produce.
 
In identifying and acquiring mineral resource properties, we compete with many companies possessing greater financial resources and technical facilities. This competition could adversely affect our ability to acquire suitable prospects for exploration in the future. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that we will acquire any interest in additional mineral resource properties that might yield reserves or result in commercial mining operations.
 
Our competition includes large established mining companies with substantial capabilities and with greater financial and technical resources than us. As a result of this competition, we may have to compete for financing and may be unable to acquire financing on terms we consider acceptable. We may also have to compete with the other mining companies for the recruitment and retention of qualified managerial and technical employees. If we are unable to successfully compete for financing or for qualified employees, our exploration programs may be slowed down or suspended, which may cause us to cease operations as a company.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
If our costs of exploration are greater than anticipated, then we may not be able to complete the exploration program for our Wyoming Iron Complex without additional financing, of which there is no assurance that we would be able to obtain.
 
We are proceeding with the initial stages of exploration on our Wyoming Iron Complex. Our exploration program outlines a budget for completion of the program. However, there is no assurance that our actual costs will not exceed the budgeted costs. Factors that could cause actual costs to exceed budgeted costs include increased prices due to competition for personnel and supplies during the exploration season, unanticipated problems in completing the exploration program and delays due to weather or other factors experienced in completing the exploration program. Increases in exploration costs could result in our not being able to carry out our exploration program without additional financing. There is no assurance that we would be able to obtain additional financing in this event.
 
Because of the speculative nature of exploration of mining properties, there is substantial risk that no commercially exploitable minerals will be found and our business will fail.
 
We have only commenced the initial stage of exploration of our mineral property, and have no way to evaluate the likelihood that we will be successful in establishing commercially exploitable reserves of iron ore or other valuable minerals on our Wyoming Iron Complex. The search for valuable minerals as a business is extremely risky. We may not find commercially exploitable reserves of iron ore or other valuable minerals in our mineral property. Exploration for minerals is a speculative venture necessarily involving substantial risk. The expenditures to be made by us on our exploration program may not result in the discovery of commercial quantities of ore. The likelihood of success must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, difficulties, complications and delays encountered in connection with the exploration of the mineral properties that we plan to undertake. Problems such as unusual or unexpected formations and other conditions are involved in mineral exploration and often result in unsuccessful exploration efforts. In such a case, we would be unable to complete our business plan.
 
Because of the inherent dangers involved in mineral exploration, there is a risk that we may incur liability or damages as we conduct our business.
 
The search for valuable minerals involves numerous hazards. In the course of carrying out exploration of our Wyoming Iron Complex, we may become subject to liability for such hazards, including pollution, cave-ins and other hazards against which we cannot insure or against which we may elect not to insure. We currently have no such insurance nor do we expect to get such insurance for the foreseeable future. If a hazard were to occur, the costs of rectifying the hazard may exceed our asset value and cause us to liquidate all of our assets, resulting in the loss of your entire investment in this offering.
 
Because access to our mineral property is often restricted by inclement weather, we may be delayed in our exploration and any future mining efforts.
 
Access to the mineral property may be restricted during the period between October and April of each year because the period between these months can typically feature heavy snow cover, extreme cold and high winds which makes it difficult if not impossible to carry out exploration and other activities at the Wyoming Iron Complex.  We can attempt to visit, test or explore our mineral property only when weather permits such activities. These limitations can result in significant delays in exploration efforts, as well as in mining and production in the event that commercial amounts of minerals are found. Such delays can cause our business to fail.
 
Because our executive officer has other business interests, he may not be able or willing to devote a sufficient amount of time to our business operation, causing our business to fail.
 
Our President and CEO will devote approximately 50% of his working time on providing management services to us. If the demands on our executive officer from his other obligations increase, he may no longer be able to devote sufficient time to the management of our business. This could negatively impact our business development.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
Risks Related to Our Company
 
We have a limited operating history on which to base an evaluation of our business and prospects.
 
We have been in the business of exploring mineral resource properties only since June 2011 and we have not yet located or identified any mineral reserves. As a result, we have never had any revenues from our mining operations. In addition, our operating history has been restricted to the acquisition and exploration of our mineral properties and this does not provide a meaningful basis for an evaluation of our prospects if we ever determine that we have a mineral reserve and commence the construction and operation of a mine. We have no way to evaluate the likelihood of whether our mineral properties contain any mineral reserve or, if they do that we will be able to build or operate a mine successfully. We anticipate that we will continue to incur operating costs without realizing any revenues during the period when we are exploring our properties. We therefore expect to continue to incur significant losses into the foreseeable future. We recognize that if we are unable to generate significant revenues from mining operations and any dispositions of our properties, we will not be able to earn profits or continue operations. At this early stage of our operation, we also expect to face the risks, uncertainties, expenses and difficulties frequently encountered by companies at the start up stage of their business development. We cannot be sure that we will be successful in addressing these risks and uncertainties and our failure to do so could have a materially adverse effect on our financial condition. There is no history upon which to base any assumption as to the likelihood that we will prove successful and we can provide investors with no assurance that we will generate any operating revenues or ever achieve profitable operations.
 
The fact that we have not earned any significant operating revenues since our incorporation raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue to explore our mineral properties as a going concern.
 
We have not generated any significant revenue from operations since our incorporation and we anticipate that we will continue to incur operating expenses without revenues unless and until we are able to identify a mineral resource in a commercially exploitable quantity on one or more of our mineral properties and we build and operate a mine. At March 31, 2012, we had working capital of $752,444. We incurred a net loss of $1,246,043 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, and $2,276,239 since inception. We will require additional financing to sustain our business operations if we are not successful in earning revenues once exploration is complete. If our exploration programs are successful in discovering reserves of commercial tonnage and grade, we will require significant additional funds in order to place the Wyoming Iron Complex into commercial production. Should the results of our planned exploration require us to increase our current operating budget, we may have to raise additional funds to meet our currently budgeted operating requirements for the next 12 months. As we cannot assure a lender that we will be able to successfully explore and develop our mineral properties, we will probably find it difficult to raise debt financing from traditional lending sources. We have traditionally raised our operating capital from sales of equity and debt securities, but there can be no assurance that we will continue to be able to do so. If we cannot raise the money that we need to continue exploration of our mineral properties, we may be forced to delay, scale back, or eliminate our exploration activities. If any of these were to occur, there is a substantial risk that our business would fail.
 
These circumstances lead our independent registered public accounting firm, in their report dated April 12, 2012, to comment about our company’s ability to continue as a going concern. When an auditor issues a going concern opinion, the auditor has substantial doubt that our company will continue to operate indefinitely and not go out of business and liquidate its assets. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event our company cannot continue in existence. We continue to experience net operating losses.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
Risks Associated with Our Common Stock
 
If we issue additional shares in the future, it will result in the dilution of our existing shareholders.
 
Our articles of incorporation authorize the issuance of up to 3,700,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Our board of directors may choose to issue some or all of such shares to acquire one or more companies or properties and to fund our overhead and general operating requirements. The issuance of any such shares will reduce the book value per share and may contribute to a reduction in the market price of the outstanding shares of our common stock. If we issue any such additional shares, such issuance will reduce the proportionate ownership and voting power of all current shareholders. Further, such issuance may result in a change of control of our corporation.
 
Our common stock is illiquid and the price of our common stock may be negatively impacted by factors which are unrelated to our operations.
 
The market price of our common stock could fluctuate substantially due to a variety of factors, including market perception of our ability to achieve our planned growth, quarterly operating results of our competitors, trading volume in our common stock, changes in general conditions in the economy and the financial markets or other developments affecting our competitors or us. In addition, the stock market is subject to extreme price and volume fluctuations. This volatility has had a significant effect on the market price of securities issued by many companies for reasons unrelated to their operating performance and could have the same effect on our common stock.
 
We do not intend to pay cash dividends on any investment in the shares of stock of our company.
 
We have never paid any cash dividends and currently do not intend to pay any cash dividends for the foreseeable future. Because we do not intend to declare cash dividends, any gain on an investment in our company will need to come through an increase in the stock’s price. This may never happen and investors may lose all of their investment in our company.
 
Trading of our stock is restricted by the Securities Exchange Commission’s penny stock regulations, which may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our common stock.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted regulations which generally define “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”. The term “accredited investor” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules; the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in and limit the marketability of our common stock.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
FINRA sales practice requirements may also limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.
 
In addition to the “penny stock” rules described above, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (known as “FINRA”) has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock and have an adverse effect on the market for our shares.\
 
Risks Relating to the Early Stage of our Company and Ability to Raise Capital
 
We are at a very early stage and our success is subject to the substantial risks inherent in the establishment of a new business venture.
 
The implementation of our business strategy is in a very early stage and subject to all of the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business venture. Accordingly, our intended business and prospective operations may not prove to be successful in the near future, if at all. Any future success that we might enjoy will depend upon many factors, many of which are beyond our control, or which cannot be predicted at this time, and which could have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition, business prospects and operations and the value of an investment in our company.
 
We have no operating history and our business plan is unproven and may not be successful.
 
We have no commercial operations. None of our projects have proven or provable reserves, are built, or are in production. We have not licensed or sold any mineral products commercially and do not have any definitive agreements to do so. We have not proven that our business model will allow us to generate a profit.
 
We expect to suffer continued operating losses and we may not be able to achieve profitability.
 
We expect to continue to incur significant discovery and development expenses in the foreseeable future related to exploration and the completion of feasibility, development and commercialization of our projects. As a result, we will be sustaining substantial operating and net losses, and it is possible that we will never be able to sustain or develop the revenue levels necessary to attain profitability.
 
We may have difficulty raising additional capital, which could deprive us of necessary resources.
 
We expect to continue to devote significant capital resources to fund exploration and development of our properties. In order to support the initiatives envisioned in our business plan, we will need to raise additional funds through public or private debt or equity financing, collaborative relationships or other arrangements. Our ability to raise additional financing depends on many factors beyond our control, including the state of capital markets, the market price of our common stock, the market price for commodities, and the development or prospects for development of competitive technology or competitive projects by others. Because our common stock is not listed on a major stock market, many investors may not be willing or allowed to purchase our common shares or may demand steep discounts. Sufficient additional financing may not be available to us or may be available only on terms that would result in further dilution to the current owners of our common stock.
 
We expect to raise additional capital during 2012 and have, as of January 11, 2012, closed a private placement financing in the gross amount of $1,000,500, but we do not have any firm commitments for funding beyond this recent placement. If we are unsuccessful in raising additional capital, or the terms of raising such capital are unacceptable, we may have to modify our business plan and/or significantly curtail our planned activities. If we are successful raising additional capital through the issuance of additional equity, our investor’s interests will be diluted.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS. - continued
 
There are substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern and if we are unable to continue our business, our shares may have little or no value.
 
Our ability to become a profitable operating company is dependent upon our ability to generate revenues and/or obtain financing adequate to explore and develop our properties. Achieving a level of revenues adequate to support our cost structure has raised substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern. We plan to attempt to raise additional equity capital by issuing shares covered and, if necessary through one or more private placement or public offerings. However, the doubts raised relating to our ability to continue as a going concern may make our shares an unattractive investment for potential investors. These factors, among others, may make it difficult to raise any additional capital.
 
Failure to effectively manage our growth could place additional strains on our managerial, operational and financial resources and could adversely affect our business and prospective operating results.
 
Our anticipated growth is expected to continue to place a strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. Further, as we acquire interests in more properties or subsidiaries and other entities, we will be required to manage multiple relationships. Any further growth by us, or an increase in the number of our strategic relationships will increase this strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. This strain may inhibit our ability to achieve the rapid execution necessary to implement our business plan, and could have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition, business prospects and prospective operations and the value of an investment in our company.

Pursuant to Section 1503(a) of the recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (The "Dodd-Frank Act"), issuers that are operators, or that have a subsidiary that is an operator, of a coal or other mine in the United States are required to disclose in their periodic reports filed with the SEC information regarding specified health and safety violations, orders and citations, related assessments and legal actions, and mining-related fatalities. During the quarter ended March 31, 2012, our U.S. exploration properties were not subject to regulation by the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration ("MSHA") under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 (the "Mine Act") as no mining activity has occurred on our properties.
