STAR GOLD CORP.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JANUARY 31, 2012




NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS


Star Gold Corp. (the "Company") was initially incorporated as Elan Development, Inc., in the State of Nevada on December 8, 2006. The Company was originally organized to explore mineral properties in British Columbia, Canada but the Company is currently focusing on gold properties in Nevada.


These financial statements are presented on the basis that the Company is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business over a reasonable length of time. As of January 31, 2012, the Company had $140,587 in cash, negative working capital of $546,011, and stockholders’ equity (deficit) of $(285,662) and accumulated net losses of $1,274,065 since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt of the Company continuing as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Its continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing or refinancing as may be required, to develop commercially viable mining reserves, and ultimately to establish profitable operations.


Management's plans for the continuation of the Company as a going concern include financing the Company's operations through issuance of its equity and/or debt securities. If the Company is unable to complete its financing requirements or achieve revenue as projected, it will then modify its expenditures and plan of operations to coincide with the actual financing completed and actual operating revenues. There are no assurances, however, with respect to the future success of these plans.


Unless otherwise indicated, amounts provided in these notes to the financial statements pertain to continuing operations. The Company is not currently earning any revenues.


The financial statement represents those of an exploration and development stage company whose main focus is in the exploration and development of gold bearing properties.  The Company's main business is putting together land packages and mining claims that the Company perceives to have some potential for mineral reserves.  The Company then spends capital to explore these claims by drilling, geophysical work or other exploration work deemed necessary.  The business is a high risk business as there is no guarantee that the Company's exploration work will ultimately discover or produce any economically viable minerals.


NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Basis of Presentation

The unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, as well as the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of the Company’s management, all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial statements have been included. Operating results for the three months ended January 31, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending April 30, 2012.

For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2011.

Restricted cash


Restricted cash represents collateral for bonds held for exploration permits.


Stock-based Compensation


The Company estimates the fair value of its stock-based compensation in the form of options using the Black-Scholes model, which requires the input of some subjective assumptions. These assumptions include estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (“expected life”), the estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock price over the



Page 6 of 23



STAR GOLD CORP.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JANUARY 31, 2012




expected term (“volatility”), employee forfeiture rate, the risk-free interest rate and the dividend yield. Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect the Black-Scholes calculation of the fair value of the options.  The value of common stock issued for consideration other than cash is estimated as fair value at the date of issue.


Loss Per Share


Basic earnings per share ("EPS") is computed as net income (loss) available to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through stock options, warrants, and other convertible securities.


The dilutive effect of convertible and outstanding securities as of January 31, 2012 and April 30, 2011, would be as follows:

 

 

 

 

 

2012

 

2011

131,667

 

131,667

 

 

Total possible dilution

 

 

 

650,000

 

331,667


At January 31, 2012 and April 30, 2011, the effect of the Company's outstanding options and common stock equivalents would have been anti-dilutive.


Reclassifications


Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2011 financial statements in order to conform to the 2012 presentation.  These reclassifications have no effect on net loss, total assets or accumulated deficit as restated.


Error Corrections


 Errors in the financial statements of a prior period discovered subsequent to their issuance are reported as a prior-period adjustment by restating the prior period.  As described in Note 9, historical financial information included for the three month and nine month period ended January 31, 2011 has been restated.


NOTE 3 – MINING INTERESTS


EXCALIBUR PROPERTY


The Excalibur Property Option Agreement (dated April 11, 2008) calls for initial cash payment of $20,000 and cash payments totaling $80,000 over five years and the issuance of 200,000 options to purchase common stock based on “fair market price” over the same five-year period.  The Company has agreed to work commitments of $275,000 over five years.  Following the fifth anniversary, if commitments have been met, the Company shall receive 100% interest in the property in consideration of a 3% Net Smelter Return royalty.  The Excalibur Property Option Agreement was amended on January 30, 2012 revising the payment date of the final required expenditure to August 31, 2012.   The schedule of annual payments, minimum expenditures and number of stock options to be issued pursuant to the Excalibur Property agreement is as follows:

LONGSTREET PROPERTY


The Longstreet Property Option Agreement (dated January 15, 2010) calls for initial cash payment of $20,000, issuance of 25,000 common shares and 25,000 options to purchase common stock based on “fair market price” to MinQuest Inc.  The Option Agreement includes cash payments totaling $286,000) over seven years and the issuance of 175,000 common shares and 175,000 stock options based on “fair market price” over the same seven-year period.  The Company has agreed to work commitments of $3,550,000 over seven years.  Following the seventh anniversary, if commitments have been met, the Company shall receive 100% interest in the property in consideration of a 3% Net Smelter Return.  


The Company incurred expenditures of $206,000 during the three months ended January 31, 2012 to satisfy certain required expenditure obligations under the Longstreet Property Agreement in advance of completion of exploration and drilling operations required.  


At January 31, 2012, the balance of Prepaid Exploration Expense was $199,329 and has been classified on the Company's Balance Sheet as Prepaid Exploration Expense to Minquest to satisfy required expenditure obligations for the year ended January 15, 2012 for which the corresponding work could not be completed by that date.  The prepaid balance will be reduced as invoices are applied to ongoing drilling and exploration activities in the future which the Company expects to recognize as exploration expense during the remainder of its fiscal year ending April 30, 2012.


The schedule of annual payments, minimum expenditures and number of stock options to be issued pursuant to the Longstreet Property Option Agreement is as follows:

Total mining interest cost capitalized under the issuance of options was $ 2,250 and $19,250 for the nine months ended January 31, 2012 and the year ended April 30, 2011, respectively.  These costs are classified on the Company's balance sheets as mining interests.


The Company has established the 2011 Stock Option/Restricted Stock Plan (“2011 Plan”).  The 2011 Plan is administered by the Board of Directors and provides for the grant of stock options to eligible individual including directors, executive officers and advisors that have furnished bona fide services to the Company not related to the sale of securities in a capital-raising transaction.  


The 2011 Plan has a fixed maximum percentage of 10% of the Company's outstanding shares that are eligible for the plan pool, whereby the number of Shares under the plan increases automatically increases as the total number of shares outstanding increase.  The number of shares subject to the 2011 Plan and any outstanding awards will be adjusted appropriated by the Board of Directors if the Company's common stock is affected through a reorganization, merger, consolidation, recapitalization, restructuring, reclassification dividend (other than quarterly cash dividends) or other distribution, stock split, spin-off or sale of substantially all of the Company's assets.  


The 2011 Plan also has terms and limitations, including without limitations that the exercise price for stock options granted under the 2011 Plan must equal the stock's fair market value, based on the closing price per share of common stock, at the time the stock option is granted.  The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes model and commonly utilized assumptions associated with the Black-Scholes methodology.  


On May 30, 2011 the Board of Directors authorized grant of 326,667 options (as adjusted by the Reverse Stock Split discussed in Note 11) to purchase shares of common stock of the Company to various directors, officers and consultants.  The options vested 25% upon grant, and vest 25% on each successive six-month period thereafter.  The fair value of each option award was estimated on the date of the grant using the assumptions noted in the following table:

NOTE 9 - CORRECTION OF ERROR IN PREVIOUSLY ISSUED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


As disclosed in the financial statements as of and for the year ended April 30, 2011, management has determined that certain errors were contained in the Company s financial statements for quarter ended January 31, 2011.

Since acquiring the first development property in Nevada, the Company had not been capitalizing the appropriate costs as mineral interest.  The Excalibur, Longstreet, and Jet properties call for annual lease payments, the issuance of common stock, and common stock purchase options, for the right to acquire the undivided right, title and interest in and to the properties.  In accordance with guidance contained in ASC 805 mineral rights to explore, extract and retain at least a portion of the benefits from mineral deposits are to be considered tangible assets.  The adjustments required to appropriately record these adjustments are material to the filed financial statements, thus management is restating the January 31, 2011 amounts.

The effect of the Company's previously issued January 31, 2011 financial statement is summarized as follows:

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JANUARY 31, 2012




NOTE 10 – SUBSCRIPTIONS PAYABLE


During the nine months ended January 31, 2012, the Company received $599,582 in deposits pursuant to the proposed issuance of short-term debentures, which are convertible into shares of the Company's common stock.  Issuance of such debentures are estimated to be completed shortly after the effective date of the reverse stock split as discussed in Note 11.  Also see the discussion in Note 13.


NOTE 11 - REVERSE STOCK SPLIT


On or about November 30, 2011 the Company received written consents in lieu of a special meeting of the Board and of the Shareholders authorizing the Board to undertake a 1:6 reverse split of the Company's common shares. Pursuant to the reverse split, holders of Star Gold common stock, as of November 30, 2011 (the "Record Date"), will receive one (1) share of Star Gold common stock in exchange for every six (6) shares of Star Gold common stock held by the shareholder on the Record Date (the "Reverse Split").  The Company's shares immediately prior to the Reverse stock split totaled 63,710,000, which were adjusted to 10,618,333 shares as a result of the Reverse Stock Split.  . The Reverse Stock Split became effective February 2, 2012 when the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") approved the Reverse Stock Split. 


The Company's common stock began trading at its post Reverse Stock Split price at the beginning of trading on February 3, 2012.  Share, per share, and stock option amounts for all periods presented within this report for common stock and additional paid-in capital have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the Reverse Stock Split.


On a proforma basis for the three months and nine months ending January 31, 2012, the weighted average number of shares outstanding based on a 1:6 reverse split would be 10,592,790 and 10,534,638 respectively.   Pro-forma Earnings Per Share would be ($.02) and ($.06) for the three and nine months ending January 31, 2012


NOTE 12 –COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES


The Company has exploration obligation commitments as discussed in Note 3.


NOTE 13 -SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


On February 1, 2011, the Company issued 25,000 shares of common stock to one vendor in lieu of cash payment for services provided.  These shares were valued at $0.96 per share or $22,500, representing the fair value of the shares at the date of grant.


On February 15, 2012, the Company closed on a private placement of its securities (the “Placement”).  The Placement consisted of issuing nine hundred thousand dollars ($900,000) in five percent (5%) convertible debentures (the “Debentures”).  The Debentures are due one (1) year from their original issue date and are convertible to shares of the Company’s common stock, at the conversion price of $.10 per share, at any time before maturity, solely at the option of the Company.  The Placement also includes the issuance of warrants (the “Warrants”), to the Debenture holders, giving the holders thereof the ability to purchase, at the exercise price of $.15 per share, one (1) share of common stock of the Company for each share of Company’s common stock issuable to the holder upon conversion of the Debentures issued in conjunction with the Warrants.  The Warrants expire one (1) year from their original issue date.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis is intended to be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and the integral notes (“Notes”) thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2011.  The following statements may be forward-looking in nature and actual results may differ materially.

Corporate Background

The Company was originally incorporated on December 8, 2006 under the laws of the State of Nevada as Elan Development, Inc.  On April 25, 2008, the name of the company was changed to Star Gold Corp.   Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of precious metal deposit properties and advancing them toward production.  The Company is engaged in the business of exploring, evaluating and acquiring mineral prospects with the potential for economic deposits of precious and base metals.

  

The Company currently owns the rights to acquire up to a 100% mining interest (covering a total of 50 unpatented claims) in a mineral property (known as the Excalibur Property) located in the State of Nevada.


The Company has completed an initial exploration program on the Excalibur Property, which included Geological Mapping, Rock Sampling and Assaying.  Based on this analysis the Company has decided to move forward with the permitting of this property and associated drilling program.  The permitting was completed in June 2010 and the drilling program commenced the week of June 20th, 2010.  The Company anticipates additional drilling and exploration of the Excalibur Property to commence in late July 2012.


Star Gold Corp. currently leases with an option to acquire 60 unpatented mining claims (covering approximately 490 Hectares) located in the State of Nevada and known as the Longstreet Property. The Company recently completed a drilling program of 16 test holes and expects to commence additional core drilling of the Main target site in April/May 2012.


On July 7th, 2010, Star Gold Corp. acquired a 100% mineral interest in a Property located in the State of Nevada (approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Las Vegas) known as the Jet Property.


The Company has no patents, licenses, franchises or concessions which are considered by the Company to be of importance.  The business is not of a seasonal nature.  Since the potential products are traded in the open market, the Company has no control over the competitive conditions in the industry.  

Overview of Mineral Exploration and Current Operations

Star Gold Corp. is a mineral exploration stage company with no producing mines.   Mineral exploration is essentially a research activity that does not produce a product.  Successful exploration often results in increased project value that can be realized through the optioning or selling of the claimed site to larger companies.  As such the Company acquires properties which it believes have potential to host economic concentrations of minerals, particularly gold and silver.  These acquisitions have and may take the form of unpatented mining claims on federal land, or leasing claims, or private property owned by others.  An unpatented mining claim is an interest that can be acquired to the mineral rights on open lands of the federal owned public domain.  Claims are staked in accordance with the Mining Law of 1872, recorded with the federal government pursuant to laws and regulations established by the Bureau of Land Management  The Company intends to remain in the business of exploring for mining properties that have the potential to produce gold, silver, base metals and other commodities.

Compliance With Government Regulations

If the Company decides to continue with the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in the State of Nevada it will be required to comply with all regulations, rules and directives of governmental authorities and agencies applicable to the exploration of minerals in the State of Nevada and the United States Federal agencies.

United States

Mining in the State of Nevada is subject to federal, state and local law. Three types of laws are of particular importance to the Company’s U.S. mineral properties: those affecting land ownership and mining rights; those regulating mining operations; and those dealing with the environment.




Page 14 of 23





Land Ownership and Mining Rights.

On Federal Lands, mining rights are governed by the General Mining Law of 1872 (General Mining Law) as amended, 30 U.S.C. §§ 21-161 (various sections), which allows the location of mining claims on certain Federal Lands upon the discovery of a valuable mineral deposit and proper compliance with claim location requirements. A valid mining claim provides the holder with the right to conduct mining operations for the removal of locatable minerals, subject to compliance with the General Mining Law and Nevada state law governing the staking and registration of mining claims, as well as compliance with various federal, state and local operating and environmental laws, regulations and ordinances. As the owner or lessee of the unpatented mining claims, the Company has the right to conduct mining operations on the lands subject to the prior procurement of required operating permits and approvals, compliance with the terms and conditions of any applicable mining lease, and compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations and ordinances.

Mining Operations

The exploration of mining properties and development and operation of mines is governed by both federal and state laws.

The State of Nevada likewise requires various permits and approvals before mining operations can begin, although the state and federal regulatory agencies usually cooperate to minimize duplication of permitting efforts. Among other things, a detailed reclamation plan must be prepared and approved, with bonding in the amount of projected reclamation costs. The bond is used to ensure that proper reclamation takes place, and the bond will not be released until that time. The Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, which is referred to as the NDEP, is the state agency that administers the reclamation permits, mine permits and related closure plans on the Nevada property. Local jurisdictions (such as Eureka County) may also impose permitting requirements (such as conditional use permits or zoning approvals).

Environmental Law

The development, operation, closure, and reclamation of mining projects in the United States requires numerous notifications, permits, authorizations, and public agency decisions. Compliance with environmental and related laws and regulations requires us to obtain permits issued by regulatory agencies, and to file various reports and keep records of the Company’s operations. Certain of these permits require periodic renewal or review of their conditions and may be subject to a public review process during which opposition to the Company’s proposed operations may be encountered. The Company is currently operating under various permits for activities connected to mineral exploration, reclamation, and environmental considerations. Unless and until a mineral resource is proved, it is unlikely Star Gold Corp. operations will move beyond the exploration stage. If in the future the Company decides to proceed beyond exploration, there will be numerous notifications, permit applications, and other decisions to be addressed at that time.

Competition

Star Gold Corp. competes with other mineral resource exploration and development companies for financing and for the acquisition of new mineral properties. Many of the mineral resource exploration and development companies with whom the Company competes have greater financial and technical resources.  Accordingly, competitors may be able to spend greater amounts on acquisitions of mineral properties of merit, on exploration of their mineral properties and on development of their mineral properties. In addition, they may be able to afford greater geological expertise in the targeting and exploration of mineral properties. This competition could result in competitors having mineral properties of greater quality and interest to prospective investors who may finance additional exploration and development. This competition could adversely impact on Star Gold Corp.’s ability to finance further exploration and to achieve the financing necessary for the Company to develop its mineral properties.

The Company provides no assurance it will be able to compete in any of its business areas effectively with current or future competitors or that the competitive pressures faced by the Company will not have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition and operating results.

Office and Other Facilities

Star Gold Corp. currently maintains its administrative offices at 611 E. Sherman Avenue, Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814.  The telephone number is (208) 664-5066.  In September the Company relocated its offices, from Post Falls, Idaho, but continues to rent office space, under the same terms that governed the lease of its previous office space, from Marlin Property Management, LLC (“Marlin”) which is a single member limited liability company owned by the spouse of the Company President and director, Lindsay Gorrill.  This



Page 15 of 23





office space consists of approximately 400 square feet, and beginning on January 1, 2012 Marlin will supply this office space to the Company at a monthly rental rate of $1,500.  Star Gold Corp. does not currently own any physical or real property.

Employees

The Company has no employees other than its executive officers and directors as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.   Star Gold Corp. conducts business largely through agreements with consultants and arms length persons.

Research and Development Expenditures

The Company has not incurred any research expenditures since incorporation.

Reports to Security Holders

The Registrant does not issue annual or quarterly reports to security holders other than the annual Form 10-K and quarterly Forms 10-Q as electronically filed with the SEC.  Electronically filed reports may be accessed at www.sec.gov.  Interested parties also may read and copy any materials filed with the SEC at the SEC’s Public Reference Room at 450 Fifth Street NW, Washington, DC  20549.  Information may be obtained on the operation of the Public Reference Room by calling the SEC at (800) SEC-0330.

PLAN OF OPERATION

The Company maintains a corporate office in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  This is the primary administrative office for the company and is utilized by Company President Lindsay Gorrill and Chief Financial Officer Kelly Stopher.  

The financial condition of the Company was positive during 2011 and the metals commodity markets were favorable for most of the year.   

The Company's plan of operations for the next twelve months, subject to funding, and the availability of contractors, is as follows:

·

Continue the advanced exploration and pre-development program for the Longstreet Project.  This work may include the following:

·

Initiate up to 10,000 feet of core drilling from the surface to better define the mineralization.

·

Continue to work with potential joint venture or capital partners to advance the project into the next phase of exploration and pre-production goals.

Based on the recommendations of its consulting geologists, the Company is continuing its exploration program on the Excalibur Property and the Longstreet Property.  The Company conducted a 16 hole drilling program during the quarter ended January 31, 2012


Results of the sixteen (16) hole program at the Main structure show new intercepts at depth in the central portion of the deposit. With true thicknesses of 65 to 120 feet these intercepts have potential to significantly expand the resource at Main (185,000 ounces of gold equivalent announced in June 2011). Drilling results are shown in the table below and a detailed plan map of drill hole locations and proposed holes can be found on the Star Gold website at: http://www.stargoldcorp.com/longstreet/LSMain2011DHFaults0112.pdf


Highlights of the 16 holes included:

·

8 holes exhibited +100 feet thicknesses of +0.01 oz/ton gold equivalent

·

4 holes exhibited +200 feet thicknesses of +0.01 oz/ton gold equivalent.

·

Drill hole LS-1101 exhibited 305 feet of +0.01 oz/ton gold equivalent.

The new intercepts at depth are largely responsible for this increase in mineralization thickness. Drill holes LS-1101, 1102, 1103, 1104, 1107 and 1113 all have new intercepts at depth (see plan and table). Initial interpretation is that these deeper intercepts are related to a structure that parallels the Adit Fault (see plan map), the largest mineralized structure recognized at Main.  Also of interest is drill hole LS-1115, which intersected 5 feet 0.134 oz/ton gold and 8.06 oz/ton silver down dip on the Adit Fault. This hole is part of a 60 foot thick intercept averaging 0.038 oz/ton gold equivalent. This high grade may indicate further down dip potential at underground mining grades.

Star Gold Corp anticipates a new technical report based on these results to be produced by late March 2012.  

At January 31, 2012, the Company had $140,587 cash on hand, and a working capital deficit of $546,012. As such, the Company will require substantial additional financing in the near future in order to meet current obligations and to continue our operations. Currently, Star Gold Corp. does not have any financing arrangements in place and there are no assurances that it will be able to obtain sufficient financing on terms acceptable to the Company, if at all.

Due to the lack of operating history and  present inability to generate revenues, our auditors have stated in their audit report included in our audited financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2011 that there currently exists substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Management believes it can source additional capital in the investment markets in the coming months and years.  The Company may also consider other sources of funding, including potential mergers or farm-out a portion of its exploration properties.  

The Company has closed on a private placement of its debentures and warrants.  The placement consisted of issuing $900,000 in convertible debentures and warrants.  The drilling program discussed above was made possible due to the proceeds from this tranche of the Placement.  For more information on the Placement please review the Company’s report on Form 8-K filed on February 21, 2012.  The report is available for review at www.sec.gov.

Future liquidity and capital requirements depend on many factors including timing, cost and progress of the Company's exploration efforts.  The Company will consider additional public offerings, private placement, mergers or debt instruments.

Additional financing will be required in the future to complete planned exploration projects and expand operations to the production stage.  The Company is unsure whether additional financing will be available at the time needed or on acceptable terms, if at all.  If the Company is unable to raise additional financing when necessary, it may have to delay exploration efforts or property acquisitions, or be forced to cease operations.  Collaborative arrangements may require the Company to relinquish rights to certain of its mining claims.

On January 17, 2012, the Company announced the appointment of David Segelov as Chief Development Officer whose primary focus is strategic development of financing and investor relation programs.  Mr. Segelov will continue to serve as a Director of Star Gold Corp.  

Scott Jenkins, also a Star Gold Director, recently relocated to Tonopah, NV and will oversee the ongoing exploration and drilling programs planned for the remainder of calendar year 2012 by providing consulting services to the Company on an ongoing basis.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The Company has earned no revenue from operations in 2012 or 2011 and does not anticipate earning any revenues in the foreseeable future. Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage company and presently is seeking other business opportunities.

Certain Board members are also compensated on a per diem consulting rate to verify and assess technical information provided by outside consultants.

Legal and professional fees increased $11,090 to $14,240 for the three months ended January 31, 2012 from $3,150 for the three months ended January 31, 2011.  The increase is a result of legal and professional fees related to services provided with respect to the subscription purchase agreements (Note 10 to the Financial Statements) and services provided for the Reverse Stock Split described in Note 11 to the Financial Statements.  Additional legal expenses were incurred in the course of restating the Company by-laws, articles of incorporation and other related governance issues in order to facilitate raising additional capital for exploration.



Page 18 of 23





Investor relations expense has increased from $50,006 to $59,006 for the three months ended January 31, 2012, compared to $9,000 for the three months ended January 31, 3011.  This increase is a direct result of engaging two investment relations firm to assist in raising awareness of Star Gold Corp. and increasing liquidity in the market.    Management expects accounting and audit fees to stabilize with ongoing familiarity.

The Company does not expect significant increases in operating expenses for the upcoming fiscal year.  However, consulting and exploration expenses are expected to increase as the Company anticipates a significant drilling program on its Longstreet project during the remainder of calendar year 2011 and the fourth quarter of fiscal year ending April 30, 2012.

The Company increased total assets to $600,625 at January 31, 2012 compared to $228,874 at January 31, 2011, primarily as a result of expenditures related to exploration activities on the Longstreet Property resulting in increase in prepaid exploration expense, capitalization of option payments and deposit on exploration bonds.  Mining Interests (Note 3) increased from $172,998 to $238,749. Prepaid expenses increased to $199,329 due to expenditures required under the terms of the Longstreet Property Agreement.  The Company paid in cash $250,000 to the optioner of the Longstreet Property and anticipates expensing the remaining $199,329 on exploration in April and May of 2012.  

At January 31, 2012, the Company has a working capital deficit of $546,312, of which $744,982 in current liabilities (subscriptions payable and short-term, related party note) has been converted to debentures as described in Note 13 of the Financial Statements.

The Company utilized $45,000 in cash from Investing Activities on certain annual lease payments on capitalized mineral assets at its Longstreet, Jet and Excalibur projects for the nine months ended January 31, 2012 per the terms of Property Option Agreement described in Note 3 of the Financial Statements.  The Company is in compliance with all obligations of the Property Option Agreements.

As of January 31, 2012, the Company had cash of $140,587. Since inception, the sources of the Company’s financing have been through offerings of its equity securities and through debt financing. Star Gold Corp. has not attained profitable operations and its ability to pursue any future plan of operation is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing.   

Star Gold Corp. anticipates continuing to rely on offerings of its debt and/or equity securities in order to continue to fund business operations. Issuances of additional equity securities will result in dilution to the Company's existing stockholders. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete any additional offerings of its securities or that it will be able arrange for other financing to fund its planned business activities.

Disruptions in the credit and financial markets over the past several years have had a material adverse impact on a number of financial institutions and have limited access to capital and credit for many companies.  While access to capital has improved recently, these disruptions could, among other things, make it more difficult for the Company to obtain, or increase the cost of obtaining, capital and financing for operations.  Access to additional capital may not be available to terms acceptable to the Company or at all.

The audit opinion and Notes that accompany the Company's financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2011, disclose a 'going concern' qualification to the Company's ability to continue in business.  The financial statements for the period then ended have been prepared under the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern.  Such assumption contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As shown in the financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2011, the Company incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the year then ended, and at April 30, 2011, did not have sufficient cash reserves to cover normal operating activities for the following twelve months.  These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing as may be required, or ultimately to attain profitability.  Potential sources of cash, or relief of demand for cash, include additional external debt, the sale of shares of the Company's stock or alternative methods such as mergers or sale of the Company's assets.  No assurances can be given, however, that the Company will be able to obtain any of these potential sources of cash.  The Company currently requires additional cash funding from outside sources to sustain existing operations and to meet current obligations and ongoing capital requirements.  

The Company plans for the long term continuation as a going concern include financing future operations through sales of our common stock and/or debt and the eventual profitable exploitation of the Company's mining properties.  These plans may also, at some future point, include the formation of mining joint ventures with senior mining company partners on specific mineral properties whereby the joint venture partner would provide the necessary financing in return for equity in the property.
