The Company has experienced losses since the inception of the exploration stage amounting to $20,731,549 as of January 31, 2012.  As of January 31, 2012, the Company had a total of $2,796  in cash and cash equivalents and a working capital deficiency of $494,991, and the cash and cash equivalent amount is insufficient to sustain operations over the course of the next year. The Company has a shareholders’ deficit. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The ability of the Company to meet its commitments as they become payable, including the exploration and development of mineral properties and projects, is dependent on the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing.  There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in achieving these goals.
 
The Company is in the process of exploring and evaluating its mineral properties and projects in Uganda and has not yet determined whether these properties contain economically recoverable ore reserves.  The underlying value of the mineral properties is entirely dependent on the existence of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete development and upon future profitable production or sufficient proceeds from the disposition thereof.

Over the past two and a half years, the Company has decreased its costs significantly and intends to maintain costs at a minimum while allowing the Company to do the next phases of exploration on its projects. The Company will evaluate over the coming year whether it makes sense to divest or reduce some of its Uganda projects by either bringing in another partner(s), and/or selling in whole or in part its interests in such projects. In addition, the Company intends to raise some equity financing in the coming year.
 
These financial statements do not give effect to adjustments to the amounts and classifications to assets and liabilities that would be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Overview
 
Magnus is a mineral exploration company that specializes in identifying, acquiring and developing precious and base metal properties. The Company has been active in Uganda since 2007 where it has a 100% interest in two mineral properties as at January 31, 2012:  Kidera,and Nyanga.
 
The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada, USA on April 4, 2001 and has a July 31st fiscal year end.

Property Agreements

Property Agreements - Africa

In Africa, the Company, through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, African Mineral Fields Limited and AB Mining Ltd. (each of which are wholly-owned by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, African Mineral Fields Inc. (“AMF”)), has a 100% interest in two mineral properties in Uganda (comprising 3 mineral exploration licenses): Kidera and Nyanga.

 
 
 
 
Kidera Project

On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 485 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Kidera Property”) was granted to the Company. The Company is evaluating this project for tantalum, rare earth metals and diamonds, based on interpretation of airborne radiometric and magnetic anomalies.

A ground survey across a large radiometric anomaly and single point magnetic anomalies was completed. A total of 156 soil samples were collected along seven lines totaling 31,200 metres, 55 heavy mineral concentrate samples along four lines totaling 5,000 metres and 68 rock samples collected over outcropping granite. The samples were processed and analyzed at the laboratories, for multi-element rare earth metals and kimberlite indicator minerals.

This first phase of surface geochemical exploration has shown that there is a low potential for rare metals – REE, Tantalum and Niobium. The radiometric anomaly prominently displayed in the airborne coverage is underlain by silica rich per-aluminous granitic rocks. These rocks are not ideally suited for rare metal mineralisation, and the results indicate background levels with no clear evidence for anomalous concentrations. Results from heavy mineral concentrates show that six out of sixteen samples reported possible kimberlite indicator minerals.
 
Nyanga Project

On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 23.28 square kilometers of land in central Uganada (the “Nyanga Property”) was granted to the Company. The Company intends to evaluate the tantalum potential at this project.

An exploration report on the Nyanga quarry was obtained by the Company which included historical information and work conducted in 2000. Results from this period indicate selected high grades of tantalum and niobium in channel trench samples from historical artisanal mine workings. On June 16, 2010, a further mineral exploration license covering 79.60 square kilometers was granted to the west and north of the Nyanga license.
 
Future Plans

On its properties in Uganda, Magnus intends to undertake low cost exploration. The Company is targeting strategic minerals, in particular gold, uranium, lithium, tantalum, Rare Earths and vermiculite.

Over the course of fiscal year 2012, the Company intends to partner or sell some of its Ugandan exploration portfolio. The Company intends to determine which projects it can reasonably maintain where it can conduct cost-effective further exploration and which projects will require significant capital that would necessitate teaming up with joint venture partners or the sale of particular projects.
 
Employees
 
As at January 31, 2012, the Company had no employees (over and above its directors, officers and consultants) employed in Vancouver, British Columbia.
 
The Company’s operating subsidiary in Uganda, African Mineral Fields Limited, employed three persons, one accountant and two housekeepers, until December 31, 2011, when their employment was terminated.
 
The Company uses consultants with specific skills to assist with various aspects of its exploration, project evaluation, due diligence, acquisition initiatives, corporate governance, property management, and with accounting and legal matters.
 
 
 
 
Transactions with Related Parties / Subsequent Events
 
N/A
 
Government Regulation

Mining operations and exploration activities are subject to various national, state, provincial and local laws and regulations in the United States, Canada, and Uganda as well as other jurisdictions, which govern prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection of the environment, mine safety, hazardous substances and other matters.
 
The Company believes that it is and will continue to be in compliance in all material respects with applicable statutes and the regulations passed in the United States, Canada and Uganda.  There are no current orders or directions relating to the Company with respect to the foregoing laws and regulations.
 
Environmental Regulation
 
The Company's exploration projects are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations governing protection of the environment in North America, and Uganda. These laws often change and, as a general matter, are becoming more restrictive. The Company's policy is to conduct business in a way that safeguards public health and the environment. The Company believes that its operations are conducted in material compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

Changes to current local, state or federal laws and regulations in the jurisdictions where the Company operates or may operate in the future could require additional capital expenditures and increased operating costs. Although the Company is unable to predict what additional legislation, if any, might be proposed or enacted, additional regulatory requirements could impact the economics of its projects.

In the preceding year, there were no material environmental incidents or non-compliance with any applicable environmental regulations. The Company estimates that it will not incur material capital expenditures for environmental control facilities during the current fiscal year.

Competition

Magnus is a grassroots mineral exploration company.  The mineral exploration industry is competitive, with many companies competing for the limited number of precious and base metals acquisition and exploration opportunities that are economic under current or foreseeable metals prices, as well as for available investment funds.  With metal prices at their current levels, activity in the industry has increased dramatically, and competition is also high for the recruitment of qualified personnel and equipment.

The Company believes no single company has sufficient market power to affect the price or supply of gold or other minerals in the world market.
 
Outlook
 
At January 31, 2012, the price of gold was $1,738.50 per ounce (source: www.kitco.com) compared to $1,337.50 at January 31, 2011, representing an increase of approximately 29.98%. Some mineral commodity prices have increased and some have decreased over the past year and management expects such prices to be volatile and uncertain in the near-term.

The Company does not currently generate revenue and has no assurance that revenue will be generated in a future period.

The Company had a working capital deficiency of $494,991 at January 31, 2012.
 
 

 
The Company has 100% ownership of its Uganda projects and has no joint venture projects that require it to make expenditures to earn its interest. While the Company has been successful in raising money by private placements in the past, there are no guarantees that the Company will be successful in the future. Management believes that absent sufficient funding through a private placement or some other financing the Company will not generate sufficient revenue to cover any shortfall in the next year.
 
Results from Operations
 
Summary
 
The Company’s consolidated net loss from continuing operations and net loss for the period for the three months ended January 31, 2012 were $59,748 or $0.0011 per share compared to a consolidated net loss from continuing operations for the corresponding period in the previous year of $68,214 or $0.0013 per share. In the corresponding period in the previous year there was a bad debt recovery related to the sale of a former subsidiary in the amount of $60,000, which reduced net loss for the period to $8,214.
 
Total expenses for the quarter were $59,748 compared to $68,214 in the corresponding quarter last year, a decrease of $8,466.  The primary reason for the decrease in the quarterly expenses from year to year is that the CEO waived his consulting fee for the current period.
 
Mineral production and revenue
 
As the Company is still an exploration stage company and in the exploration stage of development on the Company’s properties, it has not, as of yet, produced any revenues nor produced any minerals.
 
Exploration, property evaluation and holding costs
 
Exploration expenses totaled $1,172 in the three months ended January 31, 2012, including geological expenses and exploration licenses. The decrease of $2,646 from the total of $3,818 in the same period of 2011 is due to the decrease in exploration activity at the properties in Africa.
 
Corporate administration
 
Corporate administration costs were $17,858 in the current quarter compared to $8,917 in the corresponding period in the previous year, representing an increase of $8,941. The increase is primarily due to the Company subleasing an office in the current period whereas the Company had no office of its own in the corresponding period of the previous year.
 
Consulting expenses
 
Consulting expenses were $5,938 in the current quarter compared to $18,692 in the corresponding period in the previous year, representing a decrease of $12,754.  The decrease is due to the CEO’s compensation being reduce to $0 for the current period, partly offset by fees paid to an administrative assistant contracted beginning September 2011.
 
Interest  expense
 
Interest expense was $20,579  in the current quarter compared to $10,392 in the corresponding period in the previous year, representing an increase of $10,187.  The increase is due to interest accruing on the long-term debt and new shareholder loans at the rate of 8%  in the current period, whereas in the previous year there was imputed interest calculated at the rate of 6% on a lower balance of shareholder loans.
 
 
 
 
Stock-based compensation  expense
 
Stock-based compensation expense was $nil in the current quarter compared to $6,783 in the corresponding period in the previous year.  The decrease is due to stock options becoming fully vested prior to the current quarter.
 
Legal and professional fees expenses
 
Legal and professional fees expenses were $10,884 in the current quarter compared to $13,920 in the corresponding period in the previous year, representing a decrease of $3,036.  The decrease is due to less corporate activity requiring less work on accounting and legal matters.
 
Financial Position, Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Cash used in Operations
 
Cash used in operations was $57,736 in the current quarter compared to cash provided by operations of $15,438 in the corresponding period in the previous year.  The increase in use of cash in operations of $73,174  is attributable to there not being a repeat of the $60,000 bad debt recovery realized in the corresponding period in the previous year and due to paying off accounts payable in the current period.
 
Investing Activities
 
Cash from investing activities in the current quarter is $nil compared to $nil for the corresponding quarter of the prior year.
 
Financing Activities
 
The Company had cash provided by financing activities of $53,949 in the current quarter compared to $nil in the corresponding period of the previous year. The difference is due to a shareholder loan provided in the current  period.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At January 31, 2012 the Company’s total assets were $9,287 as compared to $14,183 at July 31, 2011. Long-term liabilities as of January 31, 2012 totaled $1,005,555 as compared to $966,880 at July 31, 2011.  The Company had a working capital deficiency of $494,991 at January 31, 2012.
 
As of January 31, 2012 the Company had non-interest bearing loans from a shareholder in the amount of $21,114 and loans from companies related to shareholders in the amount of $52,942 plus accrued interest at the rate of 8% in the amount of $937 . The Company has recognized imputed interest of $304 calculated at the rate of 6% per annum in the three months ended January 31, 2012  on the non-interest-bearing loan.  The amount of the imputed interest has resulted in an increase in additional paid-in capital since the interest is not payable.
 
Cash commitments in the next fiscal year are expected to be related to proposed exploration activities, corporate administration, repayment of loans, payment of outstanding accounts payable and operations.
 
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.
 
 
 
 
The Company has experienced total losses during the exploration stage amounting to $20,731,549 as of January 31, 2012.  As of January 31, 2012, the Company had a total of $2,796 in cash; however this amount is insufficient to sustain operations over the course of the next twelve months. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The ability of the Company to meet its commitments as they become payable, including the completion of exploration and development of mineral properties and projects, is dependent on the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing or achieving a profitable level of operations.  There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in achieving these goals.
 
The Company is in the process of exploring and evaluating its mineral properties and projects and has not yet determined whether these properties contain economically recoverable ore reserves.  The underlying value of the mineral properties is entirely dependent on the existence of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete development and upon future profitable production or sufficient proceeds from the disposition thereof.
 
The financial statements do not give effect to adjustments to the amounts and classifications to assets and liabilities that would be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
Item 3.   Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk
 
Market risk represents the risk of loss that may impact our financial position, results of operations or cash flows due to adverse change in foreign currency and interest rates.  Significant changes in exchange rates and interest rates could  increase our expenses and our net loss.
 
Exchange Rate
 
Our reporting currency is United States Dollars (“USD”).  In Uganda, the currency is the Ugandan shilling (“UGX”).  On January 31, 2012, the exchange rate was UGX 2322.4062 = US$1.00 (source: www.exchangerates.org.uk).
 
Item 4.   Controls and Procedures
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Our management, with the participation of our President, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our President concluded that (i) there continue to be material weaknesses in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting, that the weaknesses constitute a “deficiency” and that this deficiency could result in misstatements of the foregoing accounts and disclosures that could result in a material misstatement to the financial statements for the period covered by this report that would not be detected, and (ii) accordingly, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of January 31, 2012.
 
A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.
 
Changes in Internal Controls
 
There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-QSB that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
 
 
 
 
Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls
 
The Company has confidence in its internal controls and procedures. Nevertheless, the Company’s management (including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer) believes that a control system, no matter how well designed and operated can provide only reasonable assurance and cannot provide absolute assurance that the objectives of the internal control system are met, and no evaluation of internal controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected. Further, the design of an internal 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 limitation in all internal control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issuers and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.
 
 
PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
 
Item 1.   Legal Proceedings
 
Management of the Company is not aware of any legal proceedings contemplated by any governmental authority or any other party involving the Company or its properties.  None of the Company’s directors, officer or affiliates is (i) a party adverse to the Company in any legal proceedings, or (ii) has an adverse interest to the Company in any legal proceedings.  Management is not aware of any other legal proceedings pending or that have been threatened against the Company or its properties.
 
Item 1A.   Risk Factors
 
The following risk factors should be considered in connection with an evaluation of the business of the Company:
 
THE COMPANY’S LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO JUDGE ITS PROSPECTS.

The Company has a limited operating history upon which an evaluation of the Company, its current business and its prospects can be based. You should consider any purchase of the Company’s shares in light of the risks, expenses and problems frequently encountered by all companies in the early stages of its corporate development.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES ARE UNCERTAIN.

At January 31, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $494,991. The Company may need to raise additional capital by way of an offering of equity securities, an offering of debt securities, or by obtaining financing through a bank or other entity. The Company has not established a limit as to the amount of debt it may incur nor has it adopted a ratio of its equity to debt allowance. If the Company needs to obtain additional financing, there is no assurance that financing will be available from any source, that it will be available on terms acceptable to us, or that any future offering of securities will be successful. If additional funds are raised through the issuance of equity securities, there may be a significant dilution in the value of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The Company could suffer adverse consequences if it is unable to obtain additional capital which would cast substantial doubt on its ability to continue its operations and growth.
 
We have a going concern opinion from our auditors, indicating the possibility that we may not be able to continue to operate.
 
We anticipate generating losses for the next 12 months.  Therefore, we may be unable to continue operations in the future as a going concern.  No adjustment has been made in the accompanying financial statements to the amounts and classification of assets and liabilities which could result should we be unable to continue as a going concern.  If we cannot continue as a viable entity, our shareholders may lose some or all of their investment in the Company.
 
 
 
 
There can be no assurance that we will be capable of raising the additional funding that we need to carry out our development and exploration objectives.
 
The further development and exploration of our mineral properties depends upon our ability to collect on monies owed to the Company or obtain financing through capital markets, or other means.  There is no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining financing as and when needed. Unfavorable market conditions may make it difficult or impossible for us to obtain debt financing or equity financing on acceptable terms or at all.  Failure to collect monies owed to the Company or to obtain additional financing on a timely basis may cause us to postpone our development plans, forfeit rights in some or all of our properties or reduce or terminate some or all of our operations.
 
We do not have experience in placing properties into production.
 
We have no experience in placing mineral properties into production, and our ability to do so will be dependent upon using the services of appropriately experienced personnel or entering into agreements with other major resource companies that can provide such expertise.  There can be no assurance that we will have available to us the necessary expertise to take a mineral deposit into production.
 
THE VALUE AND TRANSFERABILITY OF THE COMPANY’S SHARES MAY BE ADVERSELY IMPACTED BY THE LIMITED TRADING MARKET FOR ITS SHARES AND THE PENNY STOCK RULES.
 
There is only a limited trading market for the Company’s shares. The Company’s common stock is quoted for trading on the over-the-counter market and “bid” and “asked” quotations regularly appear on the Pink Sheets quotation market under the symbol “MGNU”. There can be no assurance that the Company’s common stock will trade at prices at or above its present level, and an inactive or illiquid trading market may have an adverse impact on the market price. In addition, holders of the Company’s common stock may experience substantial difficulty in selling their securities as a result of the “penny stock rules”, which restrict the ability of brokers to sell certain securities of companies whose assets or revenues fall below the thresholds established by those rules.
 
Our stock is a penny stock.  Trading of our shares may be restricted by the SEC’s penny stock regulations and FINRA’s sales practice requirements, which may limit a shareholder’s ability to buy and sell our shares.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission has defined “penny stock” under Rule 3a51-1 and as such our stock is penny stock.  Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, Rule 15g-9, which imposes additional sales practice requirements, including disclosure requirements, on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”.  The disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for stock that is subject to the penny stock rules.  The 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.
 
In addition, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has adopted rules that require a broker/dealer, when recommending an investment to a customer, to 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.  Interpretations of these rules suggest that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for some customers.  The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority 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.
 
 
 
 
Because we do not intend to pay any cash dividends on our shares of common stock, our stockholders will not be able to receive a return on their shares unless they sell them.
 
We intend to retain any future earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business. We do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. Unless we pay dividends, our stockholders will not be able to receive a return on their shares unless they sell them.
 
FUTURE SALES OF SHARES MAY ADVERSELY IMPACT THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY'S STOCK.
 
If required, the Company may seek to raise additional capital through the sale of common stock. Future sales of shares by the Company or its stockholders could cause the market price of its common stock to decline.
 
MINERAL EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES ARE SPECULATIVE IN NATURE.
 
Resource exploration and development is a speculative business, characterized by a number of significant risks including, among other things, unprofitable efforts resulting not only from the failure to discover mineral deposits but from finding mineral deposits which, though present, are insufficient in quantity and quality to return a profit from production. The marketability of minerals acquired or discovered by the Company may be affected by numerous factors which are beyond the control of the Company and which cannot be accurately predicted, such as market fluctuations, the proximity and capacity of milling facilities, mineral markets and processing equipment and such other factors as government regulations, including regulations relating to royalties, allowable production, importing and exporting of minerals and environmental protection, the combination of which factors may result in the Company not receiving an adequate return of investment capital.
 
Substantial expenditures are required to establish ore reserves through drilling, to develop metallurgical processes to extract the metal from the ore and, in the case of new properties, to develop the mining and processing facilities and infrastructure at any site chosen for mining. Although substantial benefits may be derived from the discovery of a major mineralized deposit, no assurance can be given that minerals will be discovered in sufficient quantities and grades to justify commercial operations or that funds required for development can be obtained on a timely basis. Estimates of reserves, mineral deposits and production costs can also be affected by such factors as environmental permitting regulations and requirements, weather, environmental factors, unforeseen technical difficulties, unusual or unexpected geological formations and work interruptions. In addition, the grade of ore ultimately mined may differ from that indicated by drilling results. Short term factors relating to reserves, such as the need for orderly development of ore bodies or the processing of new or different grades, may also have an adverse effect on mining operations and on the results of operations. Material changes in ore reserves, grades, stripping ratios or recovery rates may affect the economic viability of any project.
 
THE COMPANY WILL BE SUBJECT TO OPERATING HAZARDS AND RISKS WHICH MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE COMPANY’S FINANCIAL CONDITION.
 
Mineral exploration involves many risks, which even a combination of experience, knowledge and careful evaluation may not be able to overcome. The Company’s operations will be subject to all the hazards and risks normally incidental to exploration, development and production of metals, such as unusual or unexpected formations, cave-ins or pollution, all of which could result in work stoppages, damage to property and possible environmental damage. The Company does not have general liability insurance covering its operations and does not presently intend to obtain liability insurance as to such hazards and liabilities. Payment of any liabilities as a result could have a materially adverse effect upon the Company’s financial condition.
 
 
 
 
THE COMPANY’S ACTIVITIES WILL BE SUBJECT TO ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER INDUSTRY REGULATIONS WHICH COULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON THE FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE COMPANY.
 
The Company’s activities are subject to environmental regulations promulgated by government agencies from time to time. Environmental legislation generally provides for restrictions and prohibitions on spills, releases or emissions of various substances produced in association with certain mining industry operations, such as seepage from tailing disposal areas, which would result in environmental pollution. A breach of such legislation may result in imposition of fines and penalties. In addition, certain types of operations require the submission and approval of environmental impact assessments. Environmental legislation is evolving in a manner which means stricter standards and enforcement, fines and penalties for non-compliance are more stringent. Environmental assessments of proposed projects carry a heightened degree of responsibility for companies and directors, officers and employees. The cost of compliance with changes in governmental regulations could have an adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company.
 
The operations of the Company including exploration and development activities and commencement of production on its properties, require permits from various federal, state, provincial and local governmental authorities and such operations are and will be governed by laws and regulations governing prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, toxic substances, land use, environmental protection, mine safety and other matters. Companies engaged in the development and operation of mines and related facilities generally experience increased costs and delays in production and other schedules as a result of the need to comply with applicable laws, regulations and permits.
 
Failure to comply with applicable laws, regulations, and permitting requirements may result in enforcement actions thereunder, including orders issued by regulatory or judicial authorities causing operations to cease or be curtailed, and may include corrective measures requiring capital expenditures, installation of additional equipment, or remedial actions. Parties engaged in mining operations may be required to compensate those suffering loss or damage by reason of the mining activities and may have civil or criminal fines or penalties imposed for violations of applicable laws or regulations and, in particular, environmental laws.
 
THE COMPANY’S PROPERTIES ARE LOCATED IN UGANDA, A DEVELOPING COUNTRY WHICH HAS HISTORICALLY EXPERIENCED PERIODS OF CIVIL UNREST AND POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC INSTABILITY.
 
All of the Company’s African properties are located in Uganda, a developing country which has historically experienced periods of civil unrest and political and economic instability.  Although the political and economic climate in Uganda is currently stable, any negative changes in governmental laws, regulations, economic conditions, or political attitudes in Uganda are beyond the control of the Company and may adversely affect its business.
 
The Company’s operations may be affected in varying degrees by government regulations, policies or directives with respect to restrictions on production or sales, price controls, export controls, repatriation of income, income taxes, carried interests for the state, expropriation of property and environmental legislation. Magnus may also be required to negotiate property agreements with the Ugandan government, which may impose conditions that will affect the viability of the project such as providing the government with free carried interests or providing subsidies for the development of the local infrastructure or other social assistance. There can be no assurance that Magnus will be successful in concluding such agreements on commercially acceptable terms or that these agreements will be successfully enforced in Uganda.
 
 
 
 
As a result of the limited but improving infrastructure present in Uganda, land titles systems are not developed to the extent found in many developed nations. Although Magnus believes that it has good title to its mineral properties in Uganda, there is little it can do to control this risk. Magnus holds rights to explore its mineral properties in Uganda, but no assurance can be given that the Ugandan government will not revoke or significantly alter the conditions of the applicable licenses and that such licenses will not be challenged or impugned by third parties. There is no certainty that such rights or additional rights applied for will be granted or renewed on terms satisfactory to Magnus. There can be no assurance that claims by third parties against the Company’s properties in Uganda will not be asserted at a future date.
 
WE MAY BE UNABLE TO ENFORCE OUR LEGAL RIGHTS IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.
 
In the event of a dispute arising at or in respect of our foreign operations, we may be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of foreign courts or may not be successful in subjecting foreign persons to the jurisdiction of courts in the United States or other jurisdictions.  We may also be hindered or prevented from enforcing our rights with respect to a governmental entity or instrumentality because of the doctrine of sovereign immunity.

COMPETITION MAY HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE COMPANY’S ABILITY TO ACQUIRE ATTRACTIVE MINERAL PROPERTIES, WHICH MAY HAVE AN ADVERSE IMPACT ON THE COMPANY’S OPERATIONS.

Significant and increasing competition exists for the limited number of mineral acquisition opportunities available. As a result of this competition, some of which is with large established mining companies with substantial capabilities and greater financial and technical resources than the Company, the Company may be unable to acquire attractive mineral properties on terms it considers acceptable. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that any exploration program intended by the Company on properties it intends to acquire will yield any reserves or result in any commercial mining operation.

DOWNWARD FLUCTUATIONS IN METAL PRICES MAY SEVERELY REDUCE THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY.

The Company has no control over the fluctuations in the prices of the metals for which it is exploring.  A significant decline in such prices would severely reduce the value of the Company.

THE COMPANY CURRENTLY RELIES ON CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS AND THE LOSS OF ONE OF THESE CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS COULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON THE COMPANY.

The Company’s success depends to a certain degree upon certain key members of the management. These individuals are a significant factor in the Company's growth and success. The loss of the service of members of the management and certain key employees could have a material adverse effect on the Company. In particular, the success of the Company is highly dependent upon the efforts of the President, Treasurer, Secretary, CEO and director of the Company, Graham Taylor, the loss of whose services would have a material adverse effect on the success and development of the Company. 

THE COMPANY DOES NOT MAINTAIN KEY MAN INSURANCE TO COMPENSATE THE COMPANY FOR THE LOSS OF CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS.

The Company does not anticipate having key man insurance in place in respect of any of its senior officers or personnel.

THE COMPANY’S PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, GRAHAM TAYLOR, ALSO SERVES AS AN OFFICER OR DIRECTOR FOR OTHER ACTIVE COMPANIES.

Mr. Taylor also serves as president, chief executive officer and/or director for other active companies, including Arcview Entertainment Inc. (a motion picture distribution company).  This list may also expand in the future.
 
 

 
Mr. Taylor currently devotes 90% of his time to Magnus, and 10% to Arcview Entertainment.  As Mr. Taylor focuses part of his time on other companies, this may have a material adverse effect on the success and development of the Company. 
 
WE ARE AN EXPLORATION STAGE COMPANY, AND THERE IS NO ASSURANCE THAT A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE DEPOSIT OR “RESERVE” EXISTS ON ANY PROPERTIES FOR WHICH THE COMPANY HAS, OR MIGHT OBTAIN, AN INTEREST.
 
The Company is an exploration stage company and cannot give assurance that a commercially viable deposit, or “reserve,” exists on any properties for which the Company currently has (through a joint venture agreement) or may have (through potential future joint venture agreements or acquisitions) an interest. Therefore, determination of the existence of a reserve depends on appropriate and sufficient exploration work and the evaluation of legal, economic, and environmental factors. If the Company fails to find a commercially viable deposit on any of its properties, its financial condition and results of operations will be materially adversely affected.
 
WE REQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL FUNDS MERELY TO DETERMINE WHETHER COMMERCIAL MINERAL DEPOSITS EXIST ON OUR PROPERTIES.
 
Any potential development and production of the Company’s exploration properties depends upon the results of exploration programs and/or feasibility studies and the recommendations of duly qualified engineers and geologists. Such programs require substantial additional funds. Any decision to further expand the Company’s operations on these exploration properties is anticipated to involve consideration and evaluation of several significant factors including, but not limited to:

Costs of bringing each property into production, including exploration work, preparation of production feasibility studies, and construction of production facilities;

Availability and costs of financing;

Ongoing costs of production;

Market prices for the minerals to be produced;

Environmental compliance regulations and restraints; and

Political climate and/or governmental regulation and control.
 
GENERAL MINING RISKS
 
Factors beyond the control of Magnus may affect the marketability of any substances discovered from any resource properties the Company may acquire. Metal prices, in particular gold and copper prices, have fluctuated widely in recent years. Government regulations relating to price, royalties, allowable production and importing and exporting of minerals can adversely affect the Company. There can be no certainty that the Company will be able to obtain all necessary licenses and permits that may be required to carry out exploration, development and operations on any projects it may acquire and environmental concerns about mining in general continue to be a significant challenge for all mining companies.
