1.    Nature, Basis of Presentation and Continuance of Operations

First Colombia Gold Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada, U.S.A. under the name “Gondwana Energy, Ltd.” on 5 September 1997. On 23 January 2007, the Company changed its name to “Finmetal Mining Ltd.”. On 27 November 2006, the Company completed the acquisition of 100% of the shares of Finmetal Mining OY (“Finmetal OY”), a company incorporated under the laws of Finland. During the fiscal year ended 31 December 2006, the Company changed its operational focus from development of oil and gas properties, to acquisition of, exploration for and development of mineral properties in Finland.

On 22 May 2008, the Company changed its name to “Amazon Goldsands Ltd.” and on 18 September 2008, the Company entered into a Mineral Rights Option Agreement and concurrently re-focused on the acquisition of, exploration for and development of mineral properties located in Peru. On 29 November 2010, the Company changed its name to “First Colombia Gold Corp.”. The Company changed its name pursuant to a parent/subsidiary merger between the Company (as Amazon Goldsands Ltd.) and its wholly-owned non-operating subsidiary, First Colombia Gold Corp., which was established for the purpose of giving effect to this name change. In 2011 the Company expanded geographic focus to include North America, acquiring two mineral property interests while terminating its agreements related to the mineral property located in Peru in September 2011.

The Company is an exploration stage enterprise, as defined in Accounting Standards Codification (the “Codification” or “ASC”) 915-10, “Development Stage Entities”. The Company is devoting all of its present efforts in securing and establishing a new business. Its planned principle operations have not commenced and no revenue has been derived during the organization period.

The accompanying interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Finmetal OY, since its date of acquisition on 27 November 2006 and the results of Beardmore Holdings, Inc. (“Beardmore”), a company incorporated under the laws of Panama, to the date of disposal on 21 September 2011 (Note 13).

The accompanying interim consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) applicable to exploration stage enterprises, and are expressed in U.S. dollars. The Company’s fiscal year end is 31 December.

The Company’s interim consolidated financial statements as at 31 March 2012 and for the three month period then ended have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company had a net loss of $38,912 for the three month period ended 31 March 2012 (31 March 2011 - $364,640) and has a working capital deficit of $422,883 as at 31 March 2012 (31 December 2011 - $412,025).

Notes to Interim Consolidated Financial Statements
(Expressed in U.S. Dollars)
(Unaudited – Prepared by Management)
31 March 2012



Management cannot provide assurance that the Company will ultimately achieve profitable operations or become cash flow positive, or raise additional debt and/or equity capital. Management believes that the Company’s capital resources should be adequate to continue operating and maintaining its business strategy during the fiscal year ending 31 December 2012. However, if the Company is unable to raise additional capital in the near future, due to the Company’s liquidity problems, management expects that the Company will need to curtail operations, liquidate assets, seek additional capital on less favorable terms and/or pursue other remedial measures. These interim consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

2.    Significant Accounting Policies

The following is a summary of significant accounting policies used in the preparation of these interim consolidated financial statements.

Principles of consolidation

All inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in these interim consolidated financial statements.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents. As at 31 March 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents in the amount of $10,332 (31 December 2011 - $2,194).

Property and equipment

Furniture, computer equipment, office equipment and computer software are carried at cost and are amortized over their estimated useful lives at rates as follows:

Furniture, computer and office equipment
    30 %
Computer software
    100 %

The property and equipment is written down to its net realizable value if it is determined that its carrying value exceeds estimated future benefits to the Company.

Mineral property costs

Mineral property acquisition costs are initially capitalized as tangible assets when purchased. At the end of each fiscal quarter, the Company assesses the carrying costs for impairment. If proven and probable reserves are established for a property and it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed, costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable reserve.

Mineral property exploration costs are expensed as incurred.

Estimated future removal and site restoration costs, when determinable are provided over the life of proven reserves on a units-of-production basis. Costs, which include production equipment removal and environmental remediation, are estimated each period by management based on current regulations, actual expenses incurred, and technology and industry standards. Any charge is included in exploration expense or the provision for depletion and depreciation during the period and the actual restoration expenditures are charged to the accumulated provision amounts as incurred.

As of the date of these interim consolidated financial statements, the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties and incurred only acquisition and exploration costs.

Although the Company has taken steps to verify title to mineral properties in which it has an interest, according to the usual industry standards for the stage of exploration of such properties, these procedures do not guarantee the Company’s title. Such properties may be subject to prior agreements or transfers and title may be affected by undetected defects.

Segments of an enterprise and related information

ASC 280, “Segment Reporting” establishes guidance for the way that public companies report information about operating segments in annual financial statements and requires reporting of selected information about operating segments in interim financial statements issued to the public. It also establishes standards for disclosures regarding products and services, geographic areas and major customers. ASC 280 defines operating segments as components of a company about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

Environmental costs

Environmental expenditures that are related to current operations are charged to operations or capitalized as appropriate. Expenditures that relate to an existing condition caused by past operations, and which do not contribute to current or future revenue generation, are charged to operations. Liabilities are recorded when environmental assessments and/or remedial efforts are probable, and the cost can be reasonably estimated. Generally, the timing of these accruals coincides with the earlier of completion of a feasibility study or the Company’s commitments to a plan of action based on the then known facts.

Foreign currency translation

The Company’s functional and reporting currency is U.S. dollars. The interim consolidated financial statements of the Company are translated to U.S. dollars in accordance with ASC 830, “Foreign Currency Matters.” Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated using the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date. Gains and losses arising on translation or settlement of foreign currency denominated transactions or balances are included in the determination of income. The Company has not, to the date of these interim consolidated financial statements, entered into derivative instruments to offset the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

Stock-based compensation

Effective 1 January 2006, the Company adopted the provisions of ASC 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which establishes accounting for equity instruments exchanged for employee services. Under the provisions of ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the employees’ requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the equity grant). The Company adopted ASC 718 using the modified prospective method, which requires the Company to record compensation expense over the vesting period for all awards granted after the date of adoption, and for the unvested portion of previously granted awards that remain outstanding at the date of adoption. Accordingly, the financial statements for the periods prior to 1 January 2006 have not been restated to reflect the fair value method of expensing share-based compensation. The adoption of ASC 718 did not change the way the Company accounts for share-based payments to non-employees, with guidance provided by ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”.

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 income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net 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 excluded all dilutive potential shares if their effect was anti-dilutive.

Comprehensive loss

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

Income taxes

Deferred income taxes are reported for timing differences between items of income or expense reported in the financial statements and those reported for income tax purposes in accordance with ASC 740, “Income Taxes”, which requires the use of the asset/liability method of accounting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes and tax benefits are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and for tax losses and credit carry-forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The Company provides for deferred taxes for the estimated future tax effects attributable to temporary differences and carry-forwards when realization is more likely than not.

Long-lived assets impairment

Long-term assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable, pursuant to guidance established in ASC 360-10-35-15, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”.  Management considers assets to be impaired if the carrying value exceeds the future projected cash flows from related operations (undiscounted and without interest charges). If impairment is deemed to exist, the assets will be written down to fair value. Fair value is generally determined using a discounted cash flow analysis.

Asset retirement obligations

The Company has adopted ASC 410, “Assets Retirement and Environmental Obligations”, which requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred. ASC 410 requires the Company to record a liability for the present value of the estimated site restoration costs with a corresponding increase to the carrying amount of the related long-lived assets. The liability will be accreted and the asset will be depreciated over the life of the related assets. Adjustments for changes resulting from the passage of time and changes to either the timing or amount of the original present value estimate underlying the obligation will be made.  As at 31 March 2012, the Company did not have any asset retirement obligations.

Financial instruments

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and current portion of convertible promissory notes approximates their fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments. The Company’s operations are in South America and virtually all of its assets and liabilities are giving rise to significant exposure to market risks from changes in foreign currency rates. The Company’s financial risk is the risk that arises from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility of these rates. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk.

Convertible debt

The Company has adopted ASC 470-20, “Debt with Conversion and Other Options” and applies this guidance retrospectively to all periods presented upon those fiscal years. ASC 470-20 requires the liability and equity components to be separately accounted for in a manner that will reflect the entity’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate. The Company will allocate a portion of the proceeds received from the issuance of convertible notes between a liability and equity component by determining the fair value of the liability component using the Company’s nonconvertible debt borrowing rate. The difference between the proceeds of the notes and the fair value of the liability component will be recorded as a discount on the debt with a corresponding offset to paid-in capital. The resulting discount will be accreted by recording additional non-cash interest expense over the expected life of the convertible notes using the effective interest rate method.

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

Comparative figures

Certain comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to the current period’s presentation.

Changes in Accounting Policies

Effective 1 January 2012, the Company adopted Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) 2011-12, “Comprehensive Income”, which amends certain pending paragraphs in ASU No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”, to effectively defer only those changes that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income for annual and interim financial statements for public, private, and non-profit entities.  As ASU No. 2011-12 relates only to the presentation of comprehensive income, the adoption of this ASU did not have a material effect on the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements.

Effective 1 January 2012, the Company adopted ASU No. 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”, which presents an entity with the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements.  In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income.  This update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity/deficit.  The amendments in this update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.   As ASU No. 2011-05 relates only to the presentation of comprehensive income, the adoption of this ASU did not have a material effect on the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements.

Effective 1 January 2012, the Company adopted ASU No. 2011-04, “Fair Value Measurement” to amend the accounting and disclosure requirements on fair value measurements.  This ASU limits the highest-and-best-use measure to nonfinancial assets, permits certain financial assets and liabilities with offsetting positions in market or counterparty credit risks to be measured at a net basis, and provides guidance on the applicability of premiums and discounts.  Additionally, this update expands the disclosure on Level 3 inputs by requiring quantitative disclosure of the unobservable inputs and assumptions, as well as description of the valuation processes and the sensitivity of the fair value to changes in unobservable inputs.   The adoption of this ASU did not have a material effect on the Company’s interim consolidated financial statements.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other” which allows an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. Under these amendments, an entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. ASU 2011-08 will be effective for the Company in fiscal 2013, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of this update will have a material effect on its interim consolidated financial statements.

3.    Mineral Property Interests

Temasek Properties

Effective 18 September 2008 (the “Effective Date”), the Company entered into a Mineral Right Option Agreement with Temasek Investments Inc. (“Temasek”), a company incorporated under the laws of Panama (the “Temasek Agreement”), whereby the Company could acquire four separate options from Temasek, each providing for the acquisition of a 25% interest in certain mineral rights in Peru potentially resulting in the acquisition of 100% of the mineral rights (the “Mineral Rights”). The Mineral Rights were owned by Rio Santiago Minerales S.A.C. (“Rio Santiago”). Beardmore, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Temasek, owned 999 shares of the 1,000 shares of Rio Santiago that were issued and outstanding. Temasek owned the single remaining share of Rio Santiago. The acquisition of each 25% interest in the Mineral Rights would occur through the transfer to the Company of 25% of the outstanding shares of Beardmore (Note 13).

The Company exercised the initial 25% option to acquire a 25% interest in the Mineral Rights by paying $250,000, issuing 2,500,000 common shares of the Company (Notes 8, 12 and 13) and paying an additional $250,000 to Temasek.

The Company entered into an amending agreement dated 12 May 2009 with Temasek related to the Temasek Properties, further amended pursuant to an agreement dated 3 February 2010 (the “Second Amending Temasek Agreement”).  The Company exercised the second 25% option resulting in the acquisition of a 50% interest in the Mineral Rights by exercising and completing the initial 25% option, issuing 3,500,000 additional common shares of the Company (Notes 8, 12 and 13) and paying an additional $750,000 to Temasek.

The Company entered into an amending agreement dated 25 June 2010 (the “Amendment Effective Date”) with Temasek related to the Temasek Properties (the “Third Amending Temasek Agreement”), whereby the Company now could exercise the third and fourth 25% options resulting in the acquisition of a 100% interest in the Mineral Rights by fulfilling the following conditions within ten business days from the Amendment Effective Date:

·    
Exercise and complete the initial and second 25% options (completed);

·    
Issue 11,000,000 additional common shares of the Company to Temasek (5,000,000 common shares issued on 9 March 2010) (Notes 8 and 12);

·    
Pay an additional $250,000 to Temasek (paid); 

·    
Issue a convertible note for $250,000 to Temasek (the “$250,000 Convertible Note”) (issued).  The $250,000 Convertible Note had a term of ninety days and will accrue interest at a rate of 12% per annum.  Both principal and interest under the $250,000 Convertible Note were payable upon maturity (Note 6); and

·    
Issue a convertible note for $3,250,000 to Temasek (the “$3,250,000 Convertible Note”) (issued).  The $3,250,000 Convertible Note had a term of three years and will accrue interest at a rate of 12% per annum. Interest would be payable annually and the principal was payable upon maturity (Note 6).

Temasek became a significant shareholder of the Company through the issuance of the 6,000,000 common shares on exercise of the option to acquire the initial and second 25% interests in the Mineral Rights and an additional 5,000,000 common shares on exercise of the partial payment toward the exercise of the option to acquire the third 25% interest.

On 21 September 2011, the Company entered into a Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) with Temasek,  which resulted in the Company’s relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of its 50%  interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore, which indirectly holds, through its subsidiary Rio Santiago, the Mineral Rights to certain properties located in Peru, in exchange for Temasek releasing the Company from all of its outstanding obligations under the terms of the Temasek Agreement and its subsequent amendments entered into between the parties.

Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the $250,000 Convertible Note and the $3,250,000 Convertible Note have been cancelled and the Company is no longer obligated to issue Temasek 6,000,000 shares of its common stock in exchange for the Company’s relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of its 50% interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore.  The Company is not entitled to recover any consideration previously paid to Temasek or any mineral property exploration expenditures incurred in connection with the exploration and development of the properties underlying the Mineral Rights.  The Settlement Agreement included a mutual release of all claims arising out of or relating to the Temasek Agreement (Notes 6 and 13).

By execution of the Settlement Agreement, the Company no longer has any interest, directly or indirectly, in any mineral or mining rights to properties located in Peru; and, as a result, deconsolidated mineral property interests in the amount of $6,981,553 during the year ended 31 December 2011 related to Rio Santiago (Note 13).

During the year ended 31 December 2011, the Company incurred $50,700 in exploration expenditures related to the Temasek Properties, which are included in discontinued operations for the year ended 31 December 2011 (Note 13).  During the year ended 31 December 2011, the Company also recorded a write down of mineral property interests of $5,000,000.

The Company follows ASC 810-10 and fully consolidates the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses of Beardmore.  A valuation of certain assets was completed and the Company internally determined the fair value of others assets and liabilities.  In determining the fair value of acquired assets, standard valuation techniques were used including market and income approach.

In January 2009, the purchase price allocation has been determined as follows:
 
Assets purchased:
     
Cash and cash equivalents
  $ 578  
Mineral property interests
    6,927,792  
         
Total assets acquired
  $ 6,928,370  
         
Liabilities assumed:
       
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities
  $ 49,797  
Due to related parties
    58,702  
Future income tax liabilities
    2,319,871  
         
Total liabilities assumed
  $ 2,428,370  
         
Non-controlling interest:
  $ 3,375,000  
         
Purchase price
  $ 1,125,000  
 
During the year ended 31 December 2010, the Company acquired an additional 25% interest in Beardmore from the non-controlling interest.  The aggregate purchase price was $1,135,000 paid by $750,000 in cash (paid on 22 March 2010) and 3,500,000 common shares of the Company valued at $385,000 (issued on 23 June 2009) (Notes 3, 8 and 12).  This resulted in a net decrease in non-controlling interest of $1,125,000.

Deconsolidation of Interest in Beardmore

During the year ended 31 December 2011, the Company entered into a Settlement Agreement with Temasek which resulted in the Company’s relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of its 50% interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore, in exchange for Temasek releasing the Company from all of its outstanding obligations under the terms of the Temasek Agreement and its subsequent amendments entered into between the parties on 18 September 2008.  By execution of the Settlement Agreement, the Company no longer has any interest, directly or indirectly, in any mineral or mining rights to properties located in Peru (Note 3).

Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the $250,000 Convertible Note and the $3,250,000 Convertible Note have been cancelled and the Company is no longer obligated to issue Temasek 6,000,000 shares of its common stock in exchange for the Company’s relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of its 50% interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore.  The Settlement Agreement included a mutual release of all claims arising out of or relating to the Option Agreement (Notes 3 and 6).

The assets, liabilities and results of operations of Beardmore have been separately reported as discontinued operations in the consolidated balance sheets and statements of operations.  Previously reported consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2010 and 2009 have been revised to reflect this presentation.

14.  Fair Value of Financial Instruments

A fair value hierarchy was established that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).

The fair values of the financial instruments were determined using the following input levels and valuation techniques:

 
Level 1:
classification is applied to any asset or liability that has a readily available quoted market price from an active market where there is significant transparency in the executed/quoted price.

 
Level 2:
classification is applied to assets and liabilities that have evaluated prices where the data inputs to these valuations are observable either directly or indirectly, but do not represent quoted market prices from an active market.

 
Level 3:
classification is applied to assets and liabilities when prices are not derived from existing market data and requires us to develop our own assumptions about how market participants would price the asset or liability.

As at 31 March 2012, the carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and current portion of convertible promissory notes approximated their estimated fair values because of the short maturity of these financial instruments.

As at 31 March 2012, the carrying amount of long-term debt and other financing was $Nil (31 December 2011 - $Nil).

The fair value of the beneficial conversion feature was estimated at $54,310 (31 December 2011 - $27,155), and was recorded as a component of equity, of which $54,310 (31 December 2011 - $27,155) would be a Level 1 fair value and $Nil (31 December 2011 - $Nil) would be a Level 2 fair value.

Credit Risk

Credit risk is the risk of an unexpected loss if a customer or counterparty to a financial instrument fails to meet its contractual obligations and arises primarily from the Company’s cash and cash equivalents. The Company manages its credit risk relating to cash and cash equivalents by dealing only with highly-rated United States financial institutions. As a result, credit risk is considered insignificant.

Currency Risk

The majority of the Company’s cash flows and financial assets and liabilities are denominated in US dollars, which is the Company’s functional and reporting currency. Foreign currency risk is limited to the portion of the Company’s business transactions denominated in currencies other than the US dollar.

The Company monitors and forecasts the values of net foreign currency cash flow and balance sheet exposures and from time to time could authorize the use of derivative financial instruments such as forward foreign exchange contracts to economically hedge a portion of foreign currency fluctuations. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk.

Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company will not be able to meet its financial obligations as they fall due. The Company manages liquidity risk by continuously monitoring actual and projected cash flows and matching the maturity profile of financial assets and liabilities.

Other Risks

Unless otherwise noted, the Company is not exposed to significant interest rate risk and commodity price risk.

As used in this Quarterly Report, the terms “we,” “us,” “our,” “ the Company”, and “First Colombia” mean First Colombia Gold Corp. and our subsidiaries unless otherwise indicated.
 
Corporate History
 
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada under the name Gondwana Energy, Ltd. on September 5, 1997, and previously operated under the name Finmetal Mining Ltd. and Amazon Goldsands Ltd.  Our operations have historically focused on the acquisition and development of mineral property interests in varying locations, including Finland and Peru. The current focus of our business and operations is on the  development of our mineral property interests on properties located in the western United States and we are evaluating mineral property interests and seeking opportunities in other geographical areas, including Colombia and Bolivia, to potentially acquire.
 
As described in more detail below, we no longer have any interest in any properties located in northeastern Peru.  For reasons which include our inability to secure sufficient financing to be able to cure our default on notes we used to finance our acquisition of the property interests in Peru, we reached an agreement to relinquish our entire interest in the property interests in Peru in exchange for the cancellation of such notes and related outstanding obligations.
 
In 2011 we reviewed potential properties for acquisition in Colombia, and expanded our focus to North America which resulted in our acquiring certain mineral property interests in Montana and Idaho.
 
Exploration Stage Company
 
We are considered an exploration or exploratory stage company because we are involved in the examination and investigation of land that we believe may contain valuable minerals, for the purpose of discovering the presence of ore, if any, and its extent.  There is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on any of the properties underlying our mineral property interests, and a great deal of further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility for our future 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 any of the properties underlying our mineral property interests, and there is no assurance that we will discover one.  If we cannot acquire or locate mineral deposits, or if it is not economical to recover any mineral deposits that we do find, our business and operations will be materially and adversely affected.
 
Description of our Mineral Property Interests
 
South Idaho Silver Project
 
On December 7, 2011 (the “Effective Date”), we entered into a Assignment and Assumption Agreement (“Assignment Agreement”) with Castle Creek Silver Inc. (“Castle Creek”), an Idaho corporation, and Robert Ebisch (“Ebisch”). Castle Creek and Ebisch are parties to an Option to Purchase and Royalty Agreement dated July 15, 2011 (the “Option Agreement”), for Castle Creek’s option to acquire an undivided 100% of the right, title and interest of Ebisch in and to the PB 7, 9, 11, 12, 23, 25, 27, and 29 lode mining claims (IMC #’s, respectively, 196852, 196854, 196856, 196857, 196866, 196867, 196868, and 196869), situated in Owyhee County, Idaho, (hereinafter together with any form of successor or substitute mineral tenure called the “South Idaho Silver Project”). Pursuant to the terms of the Assignment Agreement, Castle Creek transferred and assigned us all of its right, title and interest, in, to and under the Option Agreement and we assumed the assignment of the Option Agreement agreeing to be bound, the same extent as Castle Creek, to the terms and conditions of the Option Agreement. As consideration for the Assignment Agreement, we issued Castle Creek 1,000,000 restricted shares of our common stock and are obligated to pay Castle Creek $50,000 in cash within twelve (12) months of the Effective Date, which is December 7, 2012, and Castle Creek will be entitled to a 1% net smelter return (“NSR”) from any ore produced from the South Idaho Silver Project. At any time from the Effective Date, we have the right to acquire the 1% NSR payable to Castle Creek for $250,000.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Assignment Agreement includes customary representations and warranties. Under the terms of the Assignment Agreement, Castle Creek and Ebisch have agreed to indemnify us from claims resulting from any breach or inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by Castle Creek or Ebisch in the Assignment Agreement and for any breaches of any representations, warranties, obligations, terms or covenants of either Castle Creek or Ebisch under or pursuant to the Option Agreement.
 
The Option Agreement and assignment of Castle Creek’s right, title and interest, in, to and under the Option Agreement provide that we will have exercised the option to acquire an undivided 100% of Ebisch’s right, title and interest in and to the South Idaho Silver Project after incurring an aggregate of $210,000 in exploration expenditures, paying Ebisch an aggregate of $80,000 plus five per cent (5%) of any joint-venture and buyout payments (hereafter referred to as “JV&BP”) and paying filing fees over the term of the Option Agreement. The Option Agreement provides that the cash payments payable to Ebisch shall be made according to the following schedule:
 
·   
$2,500 on or before January 31, 2012 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP; this payment has been made.
·   
$2,500 on or before September 15, 2012 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP;
·   
$5,000 on or before September 15, 2013 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP;
·   
$10,000 on or before September 15, 2014 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP;
·   
$15,000 on or before September 15, 2015 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP;
·   
$20,000 on or before September 15, 2016 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP; and
·   
$25,000 on or before September 15, 2017 plus five per cent (5%) of any JV&BP.

 
The Option Agreement provides that the exploration expenditures of an aggregate of not less than $210,000 on the South Idaho Silver project shall be incurred as follows:
 
·   
on or before April 15, 2012, incur not less than an aggregate of $10,000 in exploration expenditures; these expenditures have been made.
·   
on or before September 15, 2012, incur not less than an aggregate of $20,000 in exploration expenditures;

·   
on or before September 15, 2014, incur not less than an aggregate of $210,000 in exploration expenditures.
 
In addition to the foregoing cash payments, exploration expenditures and filing fees, we will be responsible for the following, in order to maintain our interest in the South Idaho Silver Project:
 
·   
make advance royalty payments to Ebisch, commencing on September 15, 2015 and continuing on the 15th day of September each and every year thereafter for so long as we or our assigns retains an interest in the South Idaho Silver Project, of $25,000 per year; and
·   
incur a minimum of $100,000 of annual exploration expenditures on the South Idaho Silver Project on or before September 15th each and every year after September 15, 2015, which could be offset by exploration expenditures in excess of $100,000 in any prior annual period.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
In connection with our consideration of entering into the Assignment Agreement, we conducted a diligence review of the South Idaho Silver Project. The description of property contained herein is the product of our due diligence of the South Idaho Silver Project underlying the Option Agreement.
 
Property Description and Location
 
The general location of the South Idaho Silver Project is identified on the map below:
 
graphic1
 
 
Location, Area, and Type of Mineral Tenure
 
The South Idaho Silver Project lies about 80 km south of Boise, Idaho on the flanks of the Snake River Plain, a vast graben-like physiographic region. The South Idaho Silver Project lies in Sections 14 and 15, Township 6 South, Range 1 West, Boise Meridian, Owyhee County, Idaho. Mineral rights are held by eight federal unpatented lode mining clams. These cover approximately 160 acres (65 hectares).

The eight unpatented mining claims are numbered PB 7 (IMC # 196852), PB 9 (IMC # 196854), PB 11 (IMC # 196856), PB 12 (IMC # 196857), PB 23 (IMC # 196866), PB 25 (IMC # 196867), PB 27 (IMC # 196868), and PB 29 (IMC # 196869).
 
Our ability to explore and mine the South Idaho Silver Project depends on the validity of title to the South Idaho Silver Project. The South Idaho Silver Project consists of unpatented mining claims. Maintenance of rights to unpatented mining claims contain certain requirements including sufficiency of mineral discovery, proper posting and marking of boundaries, failure to meet statutory guidelines, assessment work and possible conflicts with other claims. We have not obtained a title opinion nor title insurance on the underlying unpatented claims at this exploration stage.
 
Accessibility, Climate, Local resources, Infrastructure, Physiography
 
Topography, Elevation, and Vegetation
 
The South Idaho Silver Project is a steeply-incised drainage that drops about two hundred meters from the peneplain that lies to the immediate north. The elevation of the South Idaho Silver Project is about 1200 meters above mean sea level. Vegetation consists primarily of sagebrush and short grasses.
 
Accessibility
 
The South Idaho Silver Project is readily accessible from Nampa, Idaho, which lies on Federal Interstate Highway 84. Nampa is the nearest large town that has services necessary for mineral exploration and mining. From Nampa, paved State Highway 78 is followed about 70 km to the south to the Oreana turnoff. From there, about 5 km of paved road and 10 km of dirt road lead to the property. Unimproved tracks provide access to the claim group. Road access to the south side of the South Idaho Silver Project is limited. Mechanized work there may require construction of a temporary creek crossing, although one unimproved road crosses the South Idaho Silver Project at a ford.
 
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
Climate
 
The climate is semi-arid with roughly 150 mm/year precipitation. Summer temperatures may rise to 40 degrees centigrade while winter temperatures may fall to as low as -10 degrees centigrade. The South Idaho Silver Project is commonly subject to strong winds. The South Idaho Silver Project can be accessed year-round because of the mild climate, good road access, and low elevation of about 1200 meters above mean sea level.
 
Water Rights, Power, and Mining Personnel
 
The status of water rights at the South Idaho Silver Project is uncertain. The amount of water in the vicinity of the South Idaho Silver Project is adequate for exploratory drilling, but probably not for mineral processing. The nearest power lines are about 10 km distant. Mining personnel are not available locally.
 
The most important natural feature on the South Idaho Silver Project is a perennial stream called castle creek. During the summer, it has estimated that it flows at a minimum rate of several hundred gallons per minute. A temporary water withdrawal permit from the State of Idaho would be required for drill water. If such a permit would be granted, water might be pumped to any drill site, with a substantial cost savings on water truck rental and driver wages. There is no assurance such a permit would be granted, and if granted requirements to such a permit would be cost-effective.
 
Tailings Storage Areas, Waste Disposal Areas, and Plant Sites
 
We have not identified private land adjacent to the South Idaho Silver Project or within close proximity that could be used for potential storage areas, waste disposal or processing sites. There is public land in the vicinity, but it is unknown whether permits would be granted for such uses.
 
Previous Exploration History
 
There is no verifiable information that the South Idaho Silver Project was a producing property in the past. Prior site visits indicate that up to one hundred meters of historic underground workings exist on the South Idaho Silver Project. These may have been completed approximately 100 years ago. It is unknown the state of repair of these workings and the extent of accessibility. No mineralized material or reserves have been identified or quantified on the South Idaho Silver Project. No known production has come from the South Idaho Silver Project.
 
In 2008, two private individuals located various mining claims in the area including those described herein and leased to a private exploration company, Castle Creek, which retained a professional geologist whose site visits and data review are the primary source of the historical information described herein.
 
Geological Setting and Local Geology
 
The South Idaho Silver Project lies upon the margins of the Snake River Plain, a vast graben-like, Cenozoic Age structure that covers a large part of southern Idaho. Regionally, several mineral districts lie along the margin of the Snake River Plain.
 
The geology consists primarily of a Late Cretaceous Age granodiorite which hosts veins and breccia bodies that contain gold, silver, lead, zinc, copper sulfide mineralization. The granodiorite and breccias are covered locally by Tertiary Age, post-mineral basalts. The breccia bodies are the primary target on the South Idaho Silver Project. What are believed to be high-grade veins are of secondary interest.
 
Property Geology
 
Granite is widespread and covered locally by post-mineral basalts. Faulting consists primarily of extensional block-faulting. The granite commonly contains large xenoliths of schist. Locally, the granite has undergone argillic and silicic alteration. Veins and breccias of interest on the Property are granite-hosted. A detailed geologic map has not yet been completed on the South Idaho Silver Project.
 
 
 
 

 


 
Potential Deposit Type
 
Two potential deposit types are of interest at the South Idaho Silver Project. The first of these is the hydrothermal breccias that are found in several areas. The extent of this type of mineralization is uncertain. The second potential deposit type is high-grade quartz/sulfide veins that may be genetically associated to the breccias. An exploration program has been planned to identify steeply-dipping pipe-like bodies of quartz/sulfide mineralization. Both types of mineralization are probably of epithermal origin. Little data on the potential deposit types is available because the South Idaho Silver Project is in such an early stage of contemporary exploration.
 
Mineralization
 
Rock samples taken primarily from a sulfide-rich, siliceous hydrothermal breccia and associated rocks on the south side of the Property in 2008 by the prior owner give indication of the presence of gold and silver mineralization within a hydrothermal breccia. The breccia is hosted by altered granodiorite. The breccia contains locally massive pyrite, galena, sphalerite, arsenopyrite, chalcopyrite within a siliceous, sulfide-bearing matrix. Clasts within the breccia consist of dark grey rhyolite with semi-massive sulfides, massive pyrite with base metal sulfides and massive arsenopyrite, and light-grey quartz. Besides gold and silver, the mineralization contains anomalous arsenic, copper, lead, and zinc mineralization.
 
The geologic controls on this breccia mineralization is uncertain. The breccia lies in the vicinity of the intersection of two topographic lineaments which control the orientation of the Property. The length, width, depth, and continuity of both the breccia mineralization and sporadic vein mineralization is uncertain.
 
Metallurgical
 
No metallurgical testing has been conducted.
 
Reserves
 
There are no established probable or proven reserves on the South Idaho Silver Project.
 
Exploration
 
Only a limited amount of work has been completed on the South Idaho Silver Project. This work has been confined primarily to rock sampling at historic prospects. The rock samples taken were grab samples indicating mineralization that are not representative of any specific length or width of mineralization. They do not reflect the average grade of mineralization on any of the mineralized zones sampled. The rock sampling completed thus far has shown primarily that mineralization of interest is found in several areas of the South Idaho Silver Project. The geologic and geochemical surveys completed on the South Idaho Silver Project have been done a professional geologist.
 
We are not aware of any drilling that has been completed on the South Idaho Silver Project.
 
Exploration Plan
 
Our primary exploration plan in this under-explored area is to discover and focus on areas of known Au/Ag breccias mineralization; emphasizing exploration near the approximate intersection of northerly and easterly-trending topographic linears.
 
The above strategies would greatly limit the areas to be investigated by geophysics and possible subsequent drilling, which is anticipated to result in cost savings. However, all prospects in the area should have at least a cursory examination.

Comprehensive underground mapping and sampling of accessible historic mine workings is recommended. This will help determine the extent and average grade of mineralization on the property. Geophysics may also be necessary to enhance target definition. An IP/Resistivity survey is recommended to delineate sub-surface sulfide mineral distribution. Gold/Silver mineralization found thus far often correlates positively with sulfide content.
 
On the eight-claim South Idaho Silver Project, several areas of structural intersections should be evaluated using electrical geophysical methods. These should be followed-up by drilling to test for any depth extension of the mineralization. An itemized budget for this work is shown below:

This work plan may be accomplished in a two-phase plan with the initial budget of $210,000 required meet work requirements required in the Option Agreement, for the period from 2012 to 2014.
 
Our current cash on hand is insufficient to complete any of the planned exploration activities and the full implementation of any planned exploration program is dependent on our ability to secure sufficient financing. We can provide no assurance that we will secure sufficient financing. In the absence of such financing, we will not be able to pursue our planned exploration program and may not be able to maintain the option to acquire the South Idaho Silver Project or underlying mining claims in good standing. If we do not fulfill the terms of the Assignment Agreement or Option Agreement, then our ability to commence or continue operations could be materially limited. We also may be forced to abandon the South Idaho Silver Project. If we are unable to raise additional capital within the next twelve months, we will experience liquidity problems and management expects that we will need to curtail operations, liquidate assets, seek additional capital on less favorable terms and/or pursue other remedial measures. We may consider entering into a joint venture arrangement to provide the required funding to explore the South Idaho Silver Project. We have not undertaken efforts to locate a joint venture participant and there is no assurance that any third party would enter into a joint venture agreement with us in order to fund exploration of the South Idaho Silver Project. If we were to enter into a joint venture arrangement, we would likely have to assign a percentage of our interest in South Idaho Silver Project to the joint venture participant. We have begun the process of reviewing the data base of information we have acquired on the project, and a preliminary review of requirements to begin implementation of the proposed exploration plan. Company personnel are reviewing requirements for the Plan of Operation (POS) than wil need to be filed prior to certain exploration activities.

Boulder Hill Project
 
Purchase and Sale Agreement of Unpatented Mining Claims
 
On December 16, 2011, we entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement (“Purchase Agreement”) with Boulder Hill Mines Inc., an Idaho corporation (“Boulder Hill”) relating to the purchase from Boulder Hill of three unpatented mining claims situated in Lincoln County, Montana (the “Claims”). As consideration for the Claims, we issued Boulder Hill 500,000 restricted shares of our common stock, are obligated to pay Boulder Hill $25,000 in cash within twelve (12) months of the Effective Date, which is December 16, 2012, and $25,000 in cash within twenty-four (24) months of the Effective Date, which is December 16, 2013. Boulder Hill sold, transferred and conveyed the Claims to us by executing and delivering quitclaim deeds to us.
 
The Purchase Agreement includes customary representations and warranties. Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, Boulder Hill has agreed to indemnify us from claims resulting from any breach or inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by Boulder Hill in the Purchase Agreement.
 
Assignment and Assumption of Lease Agreement
 
On December 16, 2011 (the “Effective Date”), we entered into an Assignment and Assumption Agreement (“Assignment Agreement”) with Boulder Hill, and Jim Ebisch (“Ebisch”). Boulder Hill and Ebisch are parties to an Option to Purchase and Royalty Agreement dated July 15, 2008, as amended on August 1, 2011 (the “Option Agreement”) which granted to Boulder Hill an option to acquire an undivided 100% of the right, title and interest of Ebisch in and to that certain Montana State Metallferrous Gold Lease M-1974-06 dated August 21,2006 he entered into with the State of Montana (the “Montana Gold Lease”) under which Ebisch was granted the exclusive right to prospect, explore, develop and mine for gold, silver and other minerals on property situated in Lincoln County, Montana. The Montana Gold Lease is for a ten (10) year term and is subject to the 5% net smelter return due to the State of Montana. Pursuant to the terms of the Assignment Agreement, Boulder Hill transferred and assigned us all of its right, title and interest, in, to and under the Option Agreement and we assumed the assignment of the Option Agreement agreeing to be bound, the same extent as Boulder Hill, to the terms and conditions of the Option Agreement. As consideration for the Assignment Agreement, we issued Boulder Hill 500,000 restricted shares of our common stock and are obligated to pay Boulder Hill $25,000 in cash within twelve (12) months of the Effective Date, which is December 16, 2012, and $25,000 in cash within twenty-four (24) months of the Effective Date, which is December 16, 2013.
 
The Assignment Agreement includes customary representations and warranties. Under the terms of the Assignment Agreement, Boulder Hill and Ebisch have agreed to indemnify us from claims resulting from any breach or inaccuracy of any representation or warranty made by Boulder Hill or Ebisch in the Assignment Agreement and for any breaches of any representations, warranties, obligations, terms or covenants of either Boulder Hill or Ebisch under or pursuant to the Option Agreement.
 
The Option Agreement and assignment of Boulder Hill’s right, title and interest, in, to and under the Option Agreement provide that we will have exercised the option to acquire an undivided 100% of Ebisch’s right, title and interest in and to the Montana Gold Lease after incurring an aggregate of $210,000 in exploration expenditures, paying Ebisch an aggregate of $80,000 plus five per cent (5%) of any joint-venture and buyout payments (hereafter referred to as ”JV&BP”) and paying filing fees over the term of the Option Agreement. Our responsibility for the foregoing exploration expenditures and cash payments is inclusive of exploration expenditures incurred by Boulder Hill to the present and payments previously made by Boulder Hill to Ebisch under the terms of the Option Agreement.

incur a minimum of $100,000 of annual exploration expenditures on the property underlying the in order to maintain Ebisch’s interest in the Montana Gold Lease on or before July 15th each and every year after July 15, 2011, which could be offset by exploration expenditures in excess of $100,000 in any prior annual period.
 
Description of Boulder Hill Project
 
In connection with our consideration of entering into the foregoing agreements, we conducted a diligence review. The Claims and the property that is subject to the Montana Gold Lease is being referred to by us as the “Boulder Hill Project.” The description of the property underlying the Boulder Hill Project that is contained herein is the product of the Company’s due diligence review.

Location  The general location of the Boulder Hill is  on the map below:
 
graphic2
 
The Boulder Hill Project consists of approximately 60 acres comprised of three unpatented mining claims (the “Claims”) and an option to acquire certain rights under a contiguous lease with the State of Montana (Montana State Metaliferrous Gold Lease M-1974-06, the “Montana Gold Lease”) of approximately 114 acres located in Lincoln County, Montana. The property underlying the Claims and Montana Gold Lease lie in Township 29 North, Range 27 West, Montana Principal Meridian.
 
Land Status
 
Mineral rights on federal unpatented lode mining claims can be held indefinitely as long as the annual claim maintenance payments are current. At the present time, all of the required annual claim maintenance payments for the Claims have been made. The initial term on the Montana Gold Lease is for a ten-year period commencing on August 21, 2006, which may be renewable. The total area consisting of the Boulder Hill Project consists of approximately 174 acres. The total annual property maintenance costs due the state and federal government for the Boulder Hill Project is currently about $800/year.

History
 
The Boulder Hill Project contains several historic prospect pits and adits, which we believe were excavated in the late 19th century or early 20th century. Bright white quartz veins with low gold contents attracted early prospectors to the Boulder Hill Project area. In 1995 during a regional reconnaissance conducted by Jim Ebisch, these original mine workings were sampled. Quartz vein samples from these historic workings were found in 1995 to contain low-grade gold; however, one prospect pit further down the hill, also originally sampled at the same time, contained altered, siliceous metasediments that have a far different appearance than that of the bright white quartz veins. These metasediments, poorly exposed in the prospect pit, were found to contain gold grades much higher than that of the bright white quartz veins that attracted historic attention. We have not independently verified this information and can provide no assurance that any of our exploration work will result in similar results.
 
Regional Geology
 
The Boulder Hill Project is located within an area that includes the Belt Basin of the northwestern United States. Mineralization is hosted by the Precambrian Age Prichard Formation. The Boulder Hill Project lies near the crest of the Wolf Creek Anticline. The rocks exposed in that area are thought to belong to the G Member of the Prichard Formation. The Boulder Hill Project also lies immediately south of the Wolf Creek Fault, an important regional structure.
 
Boulder Hill Project Geology
 
Structurally the Boulder Hill Project is on the downthrown side of the Wolf Creek fault, and the project is considered by us as a stratiform sulfide target within the Middle Prichard Formation in Lincoln County, Montana.
 
Our exploration plan at the Boulder Hill Project is designed to target what are believed to be Stratabound gold occurrences. Poorly-exposed gold mineralization found during the aforementioned reconnaissance exploration at the Boulder Hill Project within a prospect trench in 1995 is in contrast to the bright white quartz veins that were of historic interest. The rocks containing the gold mineralization found in 1995 consisted of silicified, sericitized, and pyritic to locally gossanous metasediments. We have not independently verified this historical information and can provide no assurance that any of our exploration work will result in similar results.
 
Project Infrastructure, Access and Power
 
The Boulder Hill Project is located in an area of low-lying hills, away from residential areas. A paved road, a power line, and a railway line passes within one mile of the subject area. An improved gravel road passes by northwestern portion of the property. Skid trails lead to the area where the gold mineralization was found during the 1995 exploration and a subsequent follow-up site visit in 2008 by Mr. Ebisch. There are no accessible tunnels or shafts on the subject area. The source of water for proposed drilling is currently uncertain, which may require initial hauling of water for drilling purposes.
 
Reserves
 
There are no established probable or proven reserves on the property underlying the Boulder Hill Project. Our due diligence activities have been limited, and to a great extent, have relied upon information provided to us by third parties. We have not established and cannot provide any assurance that any of the properties underlying the Boulder Hill Project contain adequate, if any, amounts of gold or other mineral reserves to make mining economically feasible to recover that gold or other mineral reserves, or to make a profit in doing so.

Proposed Exploration Plan
 
Several phases of exploration work will be necessary to move forward this project. Each successive phase of work is contingent upon the results of previous phases. The first phase will require geological mapping and sampling. Concurrent with this work, excavation of trenches on the underlying property will be necessary to expose and sample mineralization of interest. Geophysics may also be done on the property if the mineralization found by trenching has characteristics that lend to detection by geophysical methods. The total cost of this work is estimated to be $49,500.
 
The second phase of work will involve limited drilling, consisting of 3-5 diamond drill holes. These will test for near-surface strata bound gold. The total cost of this work is estimated to be $214,500.
 
The third phase of work will involve the drilling of one-two deep drill holes, each with an estimated depth of 1,500 feet. These will test for deep strata bound gold close to the Wolf Creek Fault. The total cost of this work is estimated to be $338,000.
 
Our current cash on hand is insufficient to complete any of the activities set forth in our planned exploration program. We have postponed the commencement of  exploration drilling and development program until such time that we are able to secure sufficient financing. We can provide no assurance that we will be successful in securing sufficient financing. Provided we are able to secure sufficient financing, we anticipate that we will incur the following costs for the next twelve months:

The Peru Property and Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement
 
We entered into a Mineral Right Option Agreement with Temasek on September 18, 2008, as amended and supplemented by Amendment No. 1 dated May 12, 2009 (“Amendment No. 1”), Amendment No. 2 dated February 3, 2010 (“Amendment No. 2”), and Amendment No. 3 dated June 25, 2010 (“Amendment No. 3”) (collectively, the “Option Agreement”). Pursuant to the Option Agreement, we acquired from Temasek a fifty percent equity interest in Beardmore Holdings, Inc. (“Beardmore”) and had the option to acquire the remaining fifty percent equity interest in Beardmore from Temasek, which would have resulted in our ownership of one hundred percent of Beardmore’s equity. Beardmore indirectly holds, through its subsidiary Rio Santiago Minerales S.A.C., certain mineral rights (the “Mineral Rights”) underlying properties located in Peru.
 
Under the terms of Amendment No. 3, we would have increased our ownership interest in the Mineral Rights from fifty percent to one-hundred percent resulting in our acquisition of all of the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore, if we had fulfilled the following conditions (collectively the “Option Requirements”) within ten business days following the effective date of Amendment No. 3:
 
 
 
 

 
 
- 17 -

 

 

 
·   
Completion of the exercise of options resulting in our acquisition of a fifty percent interest in the Mineral Rights through our acquisition of fifty percent of the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore;
·   
Issuance to Temasek of a total of 11,000,000 shares of our common stock (of which 5,000,000 shares were previously issued to Temasek);
·   
Payment to Temasek of US $250,000 (which such payment was acknowledged by Temasek to have been made in March 2010);
·   
Issuance of a convertible note for US $250,000 (the “$250,000 Convertible Note”) payable to the order and the direction of Temasek (which was issued on June 25, 2010); and
·   
Issuance of a convertible note for US $3,250,000 (the “$3,250,000 Convertible Note” and, collectively with the $250,000 Convertible Note, the “Convertible Notes”) payable to the order and the direction of Temasek (which was issued on June 25, 2010).
 
The $250,000 Convertible Note had a term of ninety days and accrued interest at a rate of 12% per annum. We failed to pay the principle and interest under the $250,000 Convertible Note upon maturity , which caused us to default on the $250,000 Convertible Note.
 
The $3,250,000 Convertible Note had a term of three years and accrued interest at a rate of 12% per annum. Interest was payable annually and the principal was to be paid upon maturity.
 
As of the date we were required to fulfill the Option Requirements under Amendment No. 3, we did not issue the 6,000,000 shares of our common stock to Temasek and defaulted on the $250,000 Convertible Note resulting from our failure to pay the principal plus interest on such note on its maturity date. This also resulted in the options to acquire the remaining fifty percent interest in the Mineral Rights (which would have resulted in the our acquisition of a one hundred percent interest in the Mineral Rights) having lapsed as of July 5, 2010.
 
On September 21, 2011, we entered into a Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement (“Settlement Agreement”) with Temasek, which resulted in our relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of our fifty percent interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore in exchange for Temasek releasing us from all of our outstanding obligations under the terms of the Option Agreement. By execution of the Settlement Agreement, we no longer held any interest, directly or indirectly, in the Mineral Rights.
 
Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, the $250,000 Convertible Note and the $3,250,000 Convertible Note were cancelled and we are no longer obligated to issue Temasek 6,000,000 shares of our common stock in exchange for our relinquishment and transfer to Temasek of our fifty percent interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore. We are not entitled to recover any consideration previously paid to Temasek or any mineral property exploration expenditures incurred in connection with the exploration and development of the properties underlying the Mineral Rights. The Settlement Agreement included a mutual release of all claims arising out of or relating to the Option Agreement.
 
Other Geographic Locations
 
We are also considering further geographic locations for exploration projects including Mexico and Europe. This activity consists primarily of reviewing historical data to determine potential areas of interest, to be followed by a determination for requirements and potential for acquiring mineral property interest.  We have  not identified to date any particular properties that it may be interested in acquiring, but due to the experience of management in certain areas it is considering Zacatecas, Mexico and the Balkans as territories of current and future interest. These activities may not lead to future acquisitions absent future financing under terms deemed acceptable to , if any such financing is available, and determining properties that management believes are properties of merit to add to our portfolio of mineral interests.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 and 2011
 
Revenues
 
We have not generated any revenues from our operations since our inception.
 
Operating Expenses
 
We reported operating expenses in the amount of $38,912 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to operating expenses of $364,640 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in operating expenses for the three months ended March 31,  2012, as compared to the three months ended March 31,  2011, was primarily a result of an decrease in bank and interest charges.
 
We incurred bank charges and interest of $12,807, for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $313,354 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in bank charges and interest is attributable to reduced  interest resulting from the cancellation of convertible promissory notes that were issued in June 2010 as part of the our relinquishment of our fifty percent interest in the outstanding capital stock of Beardmore, which indirectly held the mining rights to properties in Peru.
 
Our expenditures were also lower as a result of reduced consulting and management fees incurred during the reporting period. We incurred consulting and management fees of $9,000, for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $39,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in consulting and management fees is attributable to the decrease in exploration activities in Peru and consulting services required to support these activities, and more work done in-house. This also resulted in a decrease in expense for administrative and management services during the period.
 
We incurred professional fees of $2,161, for the three months ended March 31, 2012, compared to $9,935 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in professional fees is attributable to lower accounting, financial reporting and legal services expense for the period.
 
Other Items
 
We reported no other items for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 respectively.
 
Net (Income) Loss
 
As a result of the above, for the three months ended March 31, 2012 we reported a net loss of $38,912. For the three months ended March 31, 2011, we reported a net operating loss before incomes taxes of $364,640 .
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At March 31, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $10,332, compared to $2,194  at December 31, 2011, and a working capital deficit of $422,483, compared to a working capital deficit of $412,025 at December 31, 2011.

Our present capital resources are insufficient to commence and sustain any planned exploration activity. Our current cash on hand is insufficient to be able to make all cash payments required in connection with our acquisition of the Boulder Hill Project and those cash payments and exploration expenditures which are required in order to exercise our option to acquire a 100% interest in mineral property interests proposed plan of exploration anticipates that we will incur aggregate exploration related expenditures of $260,000 over the next twelve months; minimum ayments would amount to $125,000  in the next twelve months on exploration related expenses, with a total of $664,000 in exploration planned for the next twenty four months.,subject to available funding.
 
In addition to any expenditures related to any exploration activity, our business plan provides for spending of approximately $20,000 in ongoing general and administrative expenses per month for the next twelve months, for a total anticipated expenditure for general and administrative expenses of $240,000 over the next twelve months.  The general and administrative expenses for the year will consist primarily of professional fees for the audit and legal work relating to our regulatory filings throughout the year, as well as transfer agent fees and general office expenses.
 
Accordingly, we must obtain additional financing in order to continue our plan of operations during and beyond the next twelve months, which would include being able to sustain any exploration activity. We believe that debt financing will not be an alternative for funding additional phases of exploration as we have limited tangible assets to secure any debt financing. We anticipate that additional funding will be in the form of equity financing from the sale of our common stock.  We cannot provide investors with any assurance that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common stock to fund our complete exploration  programs or any acquisition of additional property interests. Any issuance of common stock would dilute the interests of our existing stockholders.  In the absence of such financing, we will not be able to pursue our exploration program and may not be able to maintain our mineral property interests in good standing.  If we do not fulfill the terms of any of our option agreements according to our business plan, then our ability to commence or continue operations could be materially limited.  We also may be forced to abandon our mineral property interests.  If we are unable to raise additional capital in the near future, we will experience liquidity problems and management expects that we will need to curtail operations, liquidate assets, seek additional capital on less favorable terms and/or pursue other remedial measures.
 
We may consider entering into a joint venture arrangement to provide the required funding to explore the properties underlying our mineral property interests. We have not undertaken any efforts to locate a joint venture participant. Even if we determine to pursue a joint venture participant, there is no assurance that any third party would enter into a joint venture agreement with us in order to fund exploration of the properties underlying our mineral property interests. If we enter into a joint venture arrangement, we would likely have to assign a percentage of our interest in our mineral property interests to the joint venture participant.
 
Cash Used in Operating Activities
 
Operating activities in the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 used cash of $29,362  and $77,931, respectively, which reflect our recurring operating losses. Our net loss reported for three months ended March 31, 2012 was the primary reason for our negative operating cash flows. Our reporting negative operating cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was partially offset by accrued interest of $12,595 for the reporting period.
 
Cash Used in Investing Activities
 
For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we used $0 in investing activities, as compared to $0 used in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2011.
 
Cash from Financing Activities
 
As we have had no revenues since inception, we have financed our operations primarily by using existing capital reserves and through private placements of our stock. Net cash flows provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $37,500, which consisted  of proceeds of convertible notes issued to Asher Enterprises, Inc. Net cash flows provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $100,000, which consisted entirely of proceeds from the issuance of common stock from warrant exercises.

Commitments
 
Convertible Notes
 
On November 23, 2011, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“Purchase Agreement”) with Asher Enterprises, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Asher”), relating to the issuance and sale to Asher of an unsecured convertible promissory note (the “ November 2011 Note”) in a private transaction (the “Transaction”) with a principal amount of $37,500.  We received net proceeds of $35,000 from the Transaction on December 1, 2011.  Interest on the November 2011 Note accrues at a rate of 8% annually and is to be paid with principal in full on the maturity date of August 28, 2012. The principal amount of the Note together with interest may be converted into shares of our common stock, par value $0.00001 (“Common Stock”), at the option of the Asher at a conversion price equal to fifty-eight percent (58%) of the Market Price (as defined in the November 2011 Note) for the Common Stock during the ten trading days prior to the conversion.
 
On March 16, 2012, we issued Asher an unsecured convertible promissory note (the “March 2012 Note”) with a principal amount of $37,500 with substantially the same terms and conditions as the November 2011 Note.  The March 2012 Note has a maturity date of December 20, 2012, at which time interest, accruing at a rate of 8% annually, and principal are to be paid in full.
 
If Asher decides not to convert the December 2011 Note or March 2012 Note into shares of our Common Stock, we will have an obligation on the maturity date of each note to pay Asher all accrued interest and principal on such note.  In such case, we would have to find sources of cash to re-pay Asher and there can be no assurance such resources will be available.
 
Cash Payments and Exploration Expenditures
 
Our obligations to make cash payments and incur exploration expenditures in connection with our acquisition of the Boulder Hill Project and the South Idaho Silver Project are described above in Part II of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-K. These expenditures of property payments and exploration are required to maintain our mineral property interests.
 
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet debt nor did we have any transactions, arrangements, obligations (including contingent obligations) or other relationships with any unconsolidated entities or other persons that may have material current or future effects on financial conditions, changes in the financial conditions, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures, capital resources, or significant components of revenue or expenses.
 
Going Concern
 
We have incurred net losses for the period from inception on September 5, 1997 to March 31, 2012 of $18,816,715  and have no source of revenue. The continuity of our future operations is dependent on our ability to obtain financing and upon future acquisition, exploration and development of profitable operations from our mineral properties. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Our interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with GAAP. For a full discussion of our accounting policies as required by GAAP, refer to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011. We consider certain accounting policies to be critical to an understanding of our consolidated financial statements because their application requires significant judgment and reliance on estimations of matters that are inherently uncertain. The specific risks related to these critical accounting policies are unchanged at the date of this report and are described in detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
We carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of March 31, 2012. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of March 31, 2012, our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective. Our conclusion is based primarily on the material weakness in internal control over financial reporting which was disclosed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, where management identified material weaknesses  that were based on the size of our company and the fact that we have only one financial expert on our management team, no audit committee and no person on our board of directors that qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert”.  We are in the process of considering changes to remediate these weaknesses.
 
Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
Limitations on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls
 
Our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving our objectives and our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at that reasonable assurance level. 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 simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the internal control. 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, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2012 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect such controls.
