Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Business Operations


Business Operations


Thunder Mountain Gold, Inc. (“Thunder Mountain” or “the Company”) was originally incorporated under the laws of the State of Idaho on November 9, 1935, under the name of Montgomery Mines, Inc.   In April 1978, the Montgomery Mines Corporation was obtained by a group of the Thunder Mountain property holders and changed its name to Thunder Mountain Gold, Inc., with the primary goal to further develop their holdings in the Thunder Mountain Mining District, located in Valley County, Idaho. Thunder Mountain Gold, Inc. takes its name from the Thunder Mountain Mining District, where its principal lode mining claims were located. For several years, the Company’s activities were restricted to maintaining its property position and exploration activities. During 2005, the Company sold its holdings in the Thunder Mountain Mining District. During 2007, the Company acquired the South Mountain Mines property in southwest Idaho and initiated exploration activities on that property, which continue today.


Basis of Presentation


The unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, as well as the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of the Company’s management, all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial statements have been included.  Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2012.


For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.


Going Concern


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company is an exploration stage company and has incurred losses since its inception and does not have sufficient cash at March 31, 2012 to fund normal operations for the next 12 months. The Company has no recurring source of revenue and its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise capital to fund its future exploration and working capital requirements. The Company’s plans for the long-term return to and continuation as a going concern include financing the Company’s future operations through sales of its common stock and/or debt and the eventual profitable exploitation of its mining properties. Additionally, the current capital markets and general economic conditions in the United States are significant obstacles to raising the required funds. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is currently investigating a number of alternatives for raising additional capital with potential investors, lessees and joint venture partners.


The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. If the going concern basis was not appropriate for these financial statements, adjustments would be necessary in the carrying value of assets and liabilities, the reported expenses and the balance sheet classifications used.

Reclassifications


Certain reclassifications have been made to conform prior year’s data to the current presentation. These reclassifications have no effect on the results of reported operations or stockholders’ equity (deficit).


Fair Value Measures


ASC 820 requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 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 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.


·

Level 2: Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability 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 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.


Our financial instruments consist principally of cash and warrant liabilities. The table below sets forth our assets and liabilities measured at fair value whether recurring or non-recurring and basis and the fair value calculation input hierarchy level that we have determined applies to each asset and liability category.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies and Business Operations, continued


For the warrant liabilities which are measured at fair value on a recurring basis, the Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model with the following inputs as of March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011:


 

March 31, 2012

December 31, 2011

Stock price

$0.08

$0.10

Exercise price

$0.20 - $0.27

$0.19 - $.26

Expected term

0.84 - 1.82 yrs

Estimated volatility

218% - 243%

218% - 250%

Risk-Free interest rate

0.19% - 0.33%

0.12% - 0.25%

Expected dividend yield

-

-


For the conversion option which is measured at fair value, the Company uses the Black-Scholes valuation model with inputs set forth in note 5 below.


Income Taxes


The Company recognizes deferred income tax liabilities or assets at the end of each period using the tax rate expected to be in effect when the taxes are actually paid or recovered. A valuation allowance is recognized on deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  The Company has evaluated all tax positions for open years and has concluded that it has no material unrecognized tax benefits.  Management estimates their effective tax rate for the year ended December 31, 2012 will be 0%.


Net Income (Loss) Per Share


The Company is required to have dual presentation of basic earnings per share (“EPS”) and diluted EPS.  Basic EPS is computed as net income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is calculated based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period plus the effect of potentially dilutive common stock equivalents, including warrants to purchase the Company’s common stock.


As of March 31, 2012 and 2011, the remaining potentially dilutive common stock equivalents not included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share as their effect would have been anti-dilutive are:

Related Party Transactions


At various times throughout the 2011 and January 2012 as approved under Board resolution dated July 11, 2011 (the “Resolution”), Mr. Collord, the Company’s Vice-President and chief operations officer, made loans of various amounts to the Company totaling $155,000 to fund the operational needs of the Company, $5,000 of which has been repaid, leaving a discounted loan balance of $147,359 as of March 31, 2012. The Resolution specifies a maturity date of January 7, 2012, subsequently amended to May 31, 2012, and allows the conversion of any portion of the note at any time into shares of common stock at a price equal to the lower of the last private placement, or the previous 30-day rolling average of the closing price of the stock.  


Management determined that the conversion option requires separate valuation and bifurcation, and determined fair value using a Black-Scholes valuation model with inputs as per the following table.  The total initial fair value of the conversion options was $126,151.  At initial recording it was determined that one of the loans’ conversion options had a fair value which exceeded the loan amount by $17,945.  The excess was charged to the statement of operations in 2011 as a financing expense from conversion option. 


The conversion option derivative liability has been revalued to fair value as of March 31, 2012 using a Black-Scholes valuation model with inputs per the following table.  As a result of this revaluation, a gain on change in the fair value of the conversion option derivative liability has been recorded on the statement of operations and comprehensive income (loss) of $16,155 for the period ended March 31, 2012.


Below is detail of the conversion option liability balance at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

The historic production peaked during World War II when, base on smelter receipts, the production of direct shipped ore totaled 53,653 tons containing 3,118 ounces of gold, 566,439 ounces of silver, 13,932 pounds of copper, 2,562,318 pounds of lead and 15,593,061 pounds of zinc.  In addition to the direct-ship ore, a flotation mill was constructed and operated during the late-1940s and early-1950s. There is no production information available on the tons, grade and concentrate associated with that phase of the operation, but it is estimated that between 30,000 and 40,000 tons of ore were mined and process based on the estimated tonnage of mill tailings.


South Mountain Mines controlled the patented claims from 1975 to the time the Company purchased the entity in 2007. They conducted extensive exploration work including extending the Sonneman Level by approximately 1,500 feet to intercept the downdip extension of the Texas sulfide mineralization mined on the Laxey Level some 300 feet above the Sonneman.  High grade sulfide mineralization was intercepted on the Sonneman Extension.  In 1985 they did a feasibility study based on polygonal ore blocks exposed in the underground workings and drilling.  This resulted in a historic resource of approximately 470,000 tons containing 23,500 ounces of gold, 3,530,000 ounces of silver, 8,339,000 pounds of copper, 13,157,000 pounds of lead and 91,817,000 lbs of zinc. Although they determined positive economics, the project was shut down and placed into care and maintenance.


In 2008, the Company engaged Kleinfelder West, Inc., a nationwide engineering and consulting firm, to complete a technical report “Resources Data Evaluation, South Mountain Property, South Mountain Mining District, Owyhee County, Idaho”. The technical report was commissioned by Thunder Mountain Resources, Inc. to evaluate all the existing data available on the South Mountain property.  Kleinfelder utilized a panel modeling method using this data to determine potential mineralized material remaining and to make a comparison with the resource determined by South Mountain Mines in the mid-1980s.  


Additional drilling and sampling will be necessary before the resource can be classified as a mineable reserve, but Kleinfelder West’s calculations provided a potential resource number that is consistent with South Mountain Mines’ (Bowes 1985) reserve model.   


During the 2008 field season two core drill holes were drilled to test the downdip extension of the sulfide mineralization in the main mine area, one on the DMEA2 ore shoot and one on the Texas ore shoot.  The DMEA 2 target was successful, with two distinct sulfide zones totaling 30 feet being encountered in an overall altered and mineralized intercept of approximately 73 feet.  The samples over the entire intercept were detail sampled over the entire 73 feet resulting in a total of 34 discrete sample intervals ranging from 0.5 to 3.7 feet.  The samples cut at the Company’s office in Garden City, Idaho and Company personnel delivered the samples to ALS Chemex preparation lab in Elko, Nevada.    The analytical results showed two distinct zones of strong mineralization.

These intercepts are down dip approximately 300 feet below of the DMEA 2 mineralized zone encountered in Sonneman Level tunnel, and 600 feet below the DMEA 2 zone on the Laxey Level tunnel.  The tenor of mineralization the DMEA 2 on the Sonneman is similar to that intercepted in the core hole, including two distinct zones with differing grades.  


The second drill hole, TX-1, was designed to test the Texas Ore Shoot approximately 300 feet down dip of the Sonneman Level.  The small core hole achieved a depth of 1250 feet, but deviated parallel to the bedding and the targeted carbonate horizon was not intercepted.


Late in 2009, the Company contracted with Gregory P. Wittman (a Qualified Person under Canadian regulations) of Northwestern Groundwater & Geology to incorporate all the new drill and sampling data into an NI 43-101 Technical Report.  This report was needed as part of the Company’s efforts to obtain a listing on the TSX Venture Exchange in 2010.  The NI 43-101 can be reviewed on the Company`s website at www.thundermountaingold.com, or on www.SEDAR.com.

 

A multi-lithic intrusive breccia outcrop was identified and sampled in 2008 on property leased by the Company.  This large area, approximately one mile long and one-half a mile wide, is located several thousand feet south of the main mine area.  The intrusive breccia is composed of rounded to sub-rounded fragments of altered intrusive rock and silicified fragments of altered schist and marble.  Initial rock chip samples from the outcrop area ranged from 0.49 ppm to 1.70 ppm gold, and follow-up outcrop and float sampling in 2009 yielded gold values ranging from 0.047 ppm to 5.81 ppm.  A first pass orientation soil survey completed in 2008 was conducted near the “discovery’ breccia outcrop at a spacing of 100 feet over a distance of 800 feet east/west and 1,000 feet north/south.  The soil assays ranged from a trace to 0.31 ppm Gold.  Surface mapping indicates that the intrusive breccia covers an area of approximately 5,000 feet x 1,500 feet.

The 2010 drilling focused primarily the breccia gold zone.  Centra Consulting completed the storm water plan needed for the exploration road construction on private land, and it was accepted by the Environmental Protection Agency. Road construction started on August 1, 2010 by Warner Construction and a total of 3.2 miles of access and drill site roads were completed through the end of September.

A campaign of road cut sampling was undertaken on the new roads as they were completed. Three sets of samples were obtained along the cut bank of the road.  Channel samples were taken on 25-foot, 50-foot or 100-foot intervals, depending upon the nature of the material cut by the road with the shorter spaced intervals being taken in areas of bedrock. A total of 197 samples were collected and sent to ALS Chemex labs in Elko, Nevada. A majority of the samples contained anomalous gold values and in addition to confirming the three anomalies identified by soils sampling, the road cuts added a fourth target that yielded a 350-foot long zone that averaged 378 parts per billion gold (0.011 ounce per ton). Follow up sampling on a road immediately adjacent to this zone yielded a 100-foot sample interval that ran 5.91 parts per million gold (0.173 ounce per ton).

Drilling on the intrusive breccia target commenced on October 1, 2010 with a Schramm reverse circulation rig contracted through Drill Tech of Winnemucca, Nevada.  Five widely-spaced holes on the four significant gold anomalies in the intrusive breccia target were completed with the following results:

Management believes that the “first-pass” drill results from the intrusive breccia target proves the existence of a significant gold system in an intrusive package that is related to the polymetallic mineralization in the carbonate in the historic mine area.  Additional work is planned for 2011, including a draped aeromagnetic, resistivity and IP surveys to isolate potential feeder structures and to evaluate the contact between the metasediments and the gold-bearing intrusive.

In addition to the drilling completed in on the Intrusive Breccia target, two reverse circulation drill holes were completed targeting the down dip extension of the polymetallic zones in an effort to confirm continuity of the ore zones to a greater depth.  Vertical drill hole LO 6 was placed to intercept the down dip extension of the DMEA 2 ore shoot exposed on both the Laxey and Sonneman levels of the underground workings, as well as the 2008 core hole drilled by the Company that extended the zone 300 feet down dip of the Sonneman level.  Drillhole LO 6 cut a thick zone of skarn alteration and polymetallic mineralization at 760 feet to 790 feet.  The intercept contained 30 feet of 3.55% zinc, 1.87 ounce per ton silver, and 0.271% copper.  Internal to this zone was 15 feet of 0.060 OPT gold and 20 feet of 0.21% lead.  Importantly, this intercept proves the continuity of the ore zone an additional 115 feet down dip of the 2008 drill hole, or 415 feet below the Sonneman level.  It remains open at depth.

Drill hole LO-7 was placed to test the down dip extension of the Laxey ore zone, the zone that produced a majority of the silver, zinc, copper, lead and gold during the World War II period.  A portion of the ore zone was intercepted approximately 180 feet below the bottom of the Laxey Shaft which mined the zone over an 800-foot length.  This hole intercepted 25 feet (600-625 feet) of 8.56% zinc and 1.15 ounce per ton (opt) silver.  This intercept proves the extension of the Laxey ore zone approximately 120 feet below the maximum depth previously mined when over 51,000 tons of sulfide ore were mined and direct shipped to the Anaconda smelter in Utah.  The grade of this ore mined over the 800 feet of shaft and stope mining was 15% zinc, 10 opt silver, 0.06 opt gold, 2.3% lead and 0.7% copper.  


Management is encouraged by both of these intercepts as they prove the continuation of the replacement sulfide mineralized ore shoots at depth.  Detailed follow-up core drilling will be needed to better define the potential of the ore shoots at depth. The ongoing exploration field work is financed by the Company through  sales of  unregistered common stock . Future work will be funded in the same manner, or through a strategic partnership with another mining company.


This property is without known reserves and the proposed program is exploratory in nature according to Instruction 3 to paragraph (b)(5) of Industry Guide 7. There are currently no permits required for conducting exploration in accordance with the Company`s current board approved exploration plan.

The Trout Creek property is located approximately 155 air miles northeast of Reno, Nevada, or approximately 20 miles SW of Battle Mountain, Nevada, in Sections 10, 11, 14, 16, 21, 22, 27; T.29N.; R.44E. Mount Diablo Baseline & Meridian, Lander County, Nevada. Latitude:      40   23’ 36” North, Longitude: 117   00’ 58” West. The property is accessible by traveling south from Battle Mountain Nevada on state highway 305, which is paved. After traveling approximately 20 miles, turn east off the highway on an unimproved public dirt road, and travel approximately 2 miles to the claims. The property is generally accessible year round. There is no power, no water other than seasonal surface precipitation, and there are no improvements on the property.


The 60 unpatented claims are 100% owned by Thunder Mountain Gold, and located along a northwest structural tend which projects into the Battle Mountain mining district to the northwest and into the Goat Ridge window and the Gold Acres, Pipeline, and Cortez area to the southeast.  Northwest trending mineralized structures in the



22



Table of Contents


Battle Mountain mining district are characterized by elongated plutons, granodiorite porphyry dikes, magnetic lineaments, and regional alignment of mineralized areas.  The Trout Creek target is located at the intersection of this northwest trending mineral belt and north-south trending extensional structures.


The Trout Creek target is based on a regional gravity anomaly on a well-defined northwest-southeast trending break in the alluvial fill thickness and underlying bedrock.  Previous geophysical work in the 1980s revealed an airborne magnetic anomaly associated with the same structure, and this was further verified and outlined in 2008 by Company personnel using a ground magnetometer. The target is covered by alluvial fan deposits of unknown thickness shed from the adjacent Shoshone Range, a fault block mountain range composed of Paleozoic sediments of both upper and lower plate rocks of the Roberts Mountains thrust. The geophysical anomaly could define a prospective and unexplored target within a well mineralized region.


The ongoing exploration field work, including claim maintenance and assessment, is financed by the Company through sales of unregistered common stock funded by the Company through private placements with accredited investors.  Future work will be funded in the same manner, or through a strategic partnership with another mining company.  The Company is attempting to consolidate the land package to cover a larger area of the positive geophysical target in the pediment by acquiring and/or joint venturing adjoining mineral property. There are currently no environmental permits required for the planned exploration work on the property. In the future, a notice of intent may be required with the Bureau of Land Management.  This property is without known reserves and the proposed program is exploratory in nature according to Instruction 3 to paragraph (b)(5) of Industry Guide 7.

These Claims are 100% owned by Thunder Mountain Gold Inc.


A geologic reconnaissance program in the fall of 2006 identified anomalous gold, silver, and other base metals in rock chips and soils at Clover Mountain.  In February 2007 the Company located the Clover Mountain claim group consisting of 40 unpatented lode mining claims totaling approximately 800 acres.  Mineralization appears to be associated with stockwork veining in a granitic stock which has been intruded by northeast and northwest-trending rhyolitic dikes.  The property is overlain by locally silicified rhyolitic tuff.


Follow-up rock chip sampling within the area of the anomaly has identified quartz veining with gold values ranging from 3.6 part per million (ppm) to 16.5 ppm.  A soil sample program consisting of 215 samples was conducted on 200’x 200’ grid spacing which defined two northeast tending soil anomalies with gold values ranging from 0.020 ppm to 0.873 ppm Au.  The gold anomalies are approximately 1,000’ in length and approximately 300’ in width. The gold anomalies are associated with northeast trending structures with accompanying quartz stockwork veining in an exposure of Cretaceous/Tertiary granite.  A 2,500’ base metal soil anomaly is observed trending northwest proximal to rhyolite and rhyodacitic dikes which intrude the granitic stock. No significant work was completed on the claim group in 2010, but additional field work is warranted in the future that may include backhoe trenching and sampling in the significantly anomalous area followed by exploration drilling.  


During brief field work in 2010, the presence of visible free gold was noted by panning in the area of the strong soil anomaly. The ongoing exploration field work, including claim maintenance and assessment fees, is funded

Table of Contents


by the Company through private placements with accredited investors. Future work will be funded in the same manner, or through a strategic partnership with another mining company.


There are currently no environmental permits required for the planned exploration work on the property. In the future, a notice of intent or plan of operations may be required with the Bureau of Land Management.  This property is without known reserves and the proposed program is exploratory in nature according to Instruction 3 to paragraph (b)(5) of Industry Guide 7.


Results of Operations:


The Company had no revenues and no production for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011. Expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2012 decreased by $57,374 or 27%, compared with $210,560 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease is a result of lower management and administrative expenses while the company focused on financing activities. Exploration expense for the quarter held steady at $41,640, as management focused on financing, and the completion of the South Mountain Joint Venture with Idaho State Gold. Management and administrative expenses decreased by $45,438 or 36% to $79,544 for the quarter. There were no director`s fees during the quarter. The Board decreased the salaries of Jim Collord and Eric Jones to $1.00 per month during June of 2011 until financial conditions of the company improve. The Company experienced professional fees during the quarter (legal and accounting) of $29,529, which is approximately the same as they were one year ago for the quarter ended March 31, 2011.


Total other income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $178,570, a reduction of $283,627 or 61% from total other income of $462,197 over the same period as last year. The decrease in other income is primarily due to the lower gain recognized on the fair value of the warrant liability recorded on the balance sheet. The Company also experienced a slight decrease in interest expense during the quarter due to the decreased borrowing from a related party during the third quarter of 2011.


Liquidity and Capital Resources:


On March 31, 2012, the Company had total current liabilities of $488,738. Current liabilities increased by $24,852 compared to year end December 31, 2011 primarily due to the increase in deferred payroll, and short term convertible note payable to a related party.

 

Total liabilities decreased during the quarter due to a decrease in the fair value of the stock purchase warrants issued in private placements completed during 2010 and 2011. The Company has accounted for the warrants as derivative instruments which have been valued using a Black Scholes fair value model. The Company recognized a long-term liability of $323,983 related to the warrants at the date of issuance and has recognized a gain of $186,910 on the warrants during the three months ended March 31, 2012, as a result of a decrease in fair value of the warrants between December 31, 2011, and the end of the first quarter of 2012.


For the three month period ended March 31, 2012, net cash used by operating activities was $117,459, consisting of our year to date net income of $25,384, less non non-cash expenses for depreciation, amortization of deferred financing costs, changes in the fair value of the warrant liability and accounts payable and other accrued liabilities.  This compares with $228,453 used by operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Cash flows from investing activities used $26,120 related to the purchase of mining claims, and $155,000 was provided by financing activities for the three month period ended March 31, 2012.  


We are an exploration stage company and have incurred losses since our inception.  The notes to our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, together with the opinion of our independent auditors included “going concern” explanatory paragraphs.

Table of Contents



Management actions in addressing the “going concern”:


Management believes that the Company currently has cash sufficient to support an exploration program as outlined in Managements Discussion & Analysis above based on the following:


·

As of May 15, 2012, the Company currently has $890,523 of cash in our bank accounts, which is sufficient to fund non-exploration activities and administrative expenses for the next three months while additional financing is put in place.

·

On July 22, 2011, the Company engaged IBK Capital in Toronto, Ontario Canada, to raise up to Cdn$3M in an non-brokered private placement. The Company paid $12,500 in fees. Terms of the placement will be determined after IBK Capital completes their due diligence on the Company, took approximately 60 days. There will be finder’s fees associated with any financing IBK Capital completes.

·

On June 26, 2011, the Company sold 1,000,000 units in a private placement to accredited investors. The units were priced at Cdn $0.17 per unit, and consisted of one share of common stock, and one full warrant to purchase a full share of common stock at Cdn$0.20 for two years. If the Company’s stock closes above Cdn$0.25 for a five consecutive days, then the Company has the right to force the holder to exercise the warrants.

·

On September 30, 2011, the Company sold 200,000 units in a private placement to accredited investors. The units were priced at Cdn $0.17 per unit, and consisted of one share of common stock, and one full warrant to purchase a full share of common stock at Cdn$0.20 for two years. If the Company’s stock closes above Cdn$0.25 for a five consecutive days, then the Company has the right to force the holder to exercise the warrants.

·

Management and the Board have not undertaken plans or commitments that exceed the cash available to the Company.  We do not include in this consideration any additional investment funds mentioned above.

·

Management will manage expenses of all types so as to not exceed the on-hand cash resources of the Company at any point in time, now or in the future.


Management is committed to proper management and spending restraint such that the Company is believed to be able to weather current disruptions in investment markets and continue to attract investment dollars in coming months and years.  


The Company’s future liquidity and capital requirements will depend on many factors, including timing, cost and progress of its exploration efforts, evaluation of, and decisions with respect to, its strategic alternatives, and costs associated with the regulatory approvals. Additional financing may be required to meet our exploration and corporate expenses incurred during the next 12 months.


The Company owns outright the South Mountain Mine property in Owyhee County, Idaho that consists of 17 patented mining claims totaling approximately 326 acres, for which Management has recorded the property in the Company’s financial statements for $357,497.


The Company owns outright three 4-wheel drive vehicles that are used for exploration and project work, as well as miscellaneous field equipment and office furniture. It also leases office space in Garden City, Idaho.
