STAR GOLD CORP.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JULY 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 July 31, 2012, the Company had $164,537 in cash, working capital of $395,626, and stockholders’ equity of $504,684 and accumulated deficit of $4,683,176 since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded 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 common stock. 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.


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 July 31, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending April 30, 2013.

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, 2012.

Use of Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant areas requiring the use of management assumptions and estimates relate to asset impairments and stock option valuation.  Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions and could have a material effect on the Company’s reported financial position and results of operations.


Exploration Stage Enterprise


The Company's financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting and according to "Accounting for Development Stage Enterprises," as it devotes substantially all of its efforts to acquiring and exploring mining interests that will eventually provide sufficient net profits to sustain the Company's existence.  Until such interests are engaged in commercial production, the Company will continue to prepare its financial statements and related disclosures in accordance with entities in the exploration stage.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JULY 31, 2012



Cash and cash equivalents


For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.  


Restricted cash


Restricted cash represents collateral for bonds held for exploration permits.


Fair Value Measures


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


Level 1:  Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.


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


Level 3:  Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.


Mining Interests and Exploration Expenditures


Exploration costs are expensed in the period in which they occur. The Company capitalizes costs for acquiring and leasing mineral properties and expenses costs to maintain mineral rights as incurred. Should a property reach the production stage, these capitalized costs would be amortized using the units-of-production method on the basis of periodic estimates of ore reserves. Mineral interests are periodically assessed for impairment of value, and any subsequent losses are charged to operations at the time of impairment. If a property is abandoned or sold, its capitalized costs are charged to operations.


Property and equipment


Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation of property and equipment is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which ranges from three to seven years.  Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Significant improvements are capitalized and depreciated over the useful life of the assets. Gains or losses on disposition or retirement of property and equipment are recognized in operating expenses.


Reclamation and Remediation


The Company's operations are subject to standards for mine reclamation that have been established by various governmental agencies.  In the period in which the Company incurs a contractual obligation for the retirement of tangible long-lived assets, the Company will record the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability.  A corresponding asset will also be recorded and depreciated over the life of the asset.  After the initial measurement of an asset retirement obligation, the liability will be adjusted at the end of each reporting period to reflect changes in the estimated future cash flows underlying the obligation.  To date, the Company has not incurred any contractual obligation requiring recording either a liability or associated asset.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JULY 31, 2012



Impaired Asset Policy


The Company periodically reviews its long-lived assets to determine if any events or changes in circumstances have transpired which indicate that the carrying value of its assets may not be recoverable, pursuant to guidance established in ASC Topic 360, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-lived Assets". The Company determines impairment by comparing the undiscounted net future cash flows estimated to be generated by its assets to their respective carrying amounts. If impairment is deemed to exist, the assets will be written down to fair value.


Stock-based Compensation


The Company estimates the fair value of options to purchase common stock 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 expected term (“volatility”), employee forfeiture rate, the risk-free interest rate and the dividend yield. Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect the estimate of fair value of stock-based compensation. Options granted have a ten year maximum term and varying vesting periods as determined by the Board.  The value of common stock awards is determined based on the closing price of the Company’s stock on the date of the award.

  

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 July 31, 2012 and 2011, would be as follows:

Fair Value of Financial Instruments


ASC topic 825, “Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments,” requires disclosures of information regarding the fair value of certain financial instruments for which it is practicable to estimate the value.  For purpose of this disclosure, the fair value of a financial instrument is the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties, other than in a forced sale of liquidation.


Income Taxes


Deferred income tax liabilities or assets at the end of each period are determined using the tax rates expected to be in effect when the taxes are actually paid or recovered. A valuation allowance is recognized on deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that some or all of these deferred tax assets will not be realized.


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.

NOTE 5– RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS


On July 1, 2008, the Company leased office space for $1,000 per month plus a proportionate share of utilities and insurance from Marlin Property Management, LLC (“Marlin”) an entity owned by the spouse of the Company President.  On September 1, 2011, the Company moved its offices to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and continues to lease space from Marlin at the rate of $1,500 per month.  The Company believes this office space and facilities are sufficient to meet its present needs, and do not anticipate any difficulty securing alternative or additional space, as needed, on terms acceptable to us.  For the three months ended July 31, 2012 and 2011, $8,583 and $2,982, respectively, was paid to this related entity inclusive of the Company’s pro-rata share of common expenses.  


During the years ended April 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company entered into a series of short term promissory notes, with the spouse of the Company’s then President (and current Chairman of the Board) Lindsay Gorrill, in the amount of $145,400.  The notes matured October 1, November 1, December 1, 2011 and January 1, 2012 and bore interest at 12% per annum and have subsequently been extended at the payor's option for an additional six months each.  Accrued interest of $5,816 was paid through issuance of 9,693 shares of common stock at $0.60 per share which approximated fair value of the shares at the date of issuance and is included in “Common stock payable” on the Company’s balance sheet at April 30, 2012.   


On or about February 17, 2012, the balance of the short term promissory notes was subsequently converted into debentures as discussed in Note 6.  


NOTE 6 - CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURES  


On or about February 17, 2012, the Company issued $900,000 in five percent (5%) convertible debentures which were due one (1) year after their original issue date and were convertible into 9,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the conversion price of $.10 per share.  In connection with the issuance the Company issued common stock purchase warrants convertible into 9,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the exercise price of $.15 per share.  The warrants expire one (1) year from their original issue date.

 

Management recognized a debt discount of $667,571 representing the relative fair value of the detachable warrants, to be amortized over the term of the associated debt.  Management determined the fair value of the detachable warrants using a Black-Scholes pricing model with the following inputs:

Management determined the embedded conversion feature in the debentures constituted a beneficial conversion feature, and recognized a debt discount of $87,029. In calculating the accounting conversion rate of the beneficial conversion feature, the intrinsic value exceeded the debt instrument itself.  Therefore, the amount of discount assigned to the feature was limited to the proceeds allocated to the convertible instrument.


$145,400 of related-party short term promissory notes (Note 5) were converted into the debentures. The Company has considered the impact of ASC 470-50 “Debt-Modifications and Extinguishments” on the  conversion of the related-party short term promissory notes and concluded that it constitutes a substantial modification and therefore should be accounted for as an extinguishment of debt.  During the year ended April 30, 2012, the Company recognized a loss on extinguishment of the short term promissory notes of $1,639,575 representing the difference between the fair value of the debt and warrants and the carrying value of the original notes.


As per Note 7, on April 30, 2012, the Company elected to convert all the debentures into common shares pursuant to the terms of the agreement.  Therefore, all remaining debt discount was recognized as an expense as of that date.  


On June 18, 2012, the Company closed on a private placement of its securities.  The placement consisted of issuing two hundred fifty thousand dollars ($250,000) in five percent (5%) convertible debentures.  The debentures were due one (1) year from their original issue date and were convertible to 833,333 shares of the Company’s common stock, at the conversion price of $.30 per share, at any time before maturity, solely at the option of the Company.  The placement also included the issuance of warrants to the debenture

holders, giving the holders thereof the ability to purchase, at the exercise price of $.75 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 two (2) years from their original issue date.  


Management recognized a debt discount of $119,821 representing the relative fair value of the detachable warrants, to be amortized over the term of the associated debt.  Management determined the fair value of the detachable warrants using a Black-Scholes pricing model with the following inputs:

As per Note 7, on June 18, 2012, the Company elected to convert all the debentures into common shares pursuant to the terms of the agreement.  Therefore, all remaining debt discount was recognized as an expense as of that date.  


NOTE 7 - COMMON STOCK PAYABLE


On April 30, 2012, the Company elected to convert all convertible debentures (Note 6) into 9,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock at the conversion price of $0.10 per share as per terms of the debenture agreement.  The Company also elected to convert $22,276 of accrued interest associated with the debentures to 27,434 shares of common stock at $0.60 per share which approximated fair value of the shares at the date of conversion. On May 10, 2012, the Company issued 9,000,000 shares of common stock to various debenture holders in satisfaction of common stock payable.  The Company also issued 27,434 shares of common stock for accrued interest on May 10, 2012 (Note 12).


As per terms of their respective employment agreements, the Company authorized the issuance of common stock to executives and management for accrued compensation through April 30, 2012 of $92,000 or 130,333 shares of common stock valued at $0.71 per share which is the average end of month closing price for the period in which compensation was earned.


On May 7, 2012, an individual exercised 300,000 common stock purchase warrants at $0.15 per share. As of July 31, 2012, $45,000 is included with common stock payable on the balance sheet.

 

On May 19, 2012, the company paid accrued interest of $5,816 with common stock payable.  


On June 18, 2012, the Company exercised its option to convert the $250,000 of convertible debentures (Note 6) into 866,667 shares of common stock.  On July 27, 2012, the Company issued to a debenture holder 166,667 shares of common stock in satisfaction of debt obligation.    These shares were valued at $0.30 per share or $50,000 representing the conversion price per share at date of grant. As of July 31, 2012, the remaining $200,000 is included with common stock payable on the balance sheet.


NOTE 8 - 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"), received 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.

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, 2012.  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 17 of 26






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



Page 18 of 26






is a single member limited liability company owned by the spouse of the Company President and director, Lindsay Gorrill.  This 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 2012 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.

Primary focus of 2012 exploration activities at Longstreet will be to enhance the known and defined resource in the Main Zone, and initiate evaluation of some of the additional higher priority targets. Auger geochemistry surveys should be conducted on the possible extensions of Main to the east and west. These can be undertaken by project geologist and field technicians already required for the proposed drilling program, and will involve very little additional expense. Additional angle holes will be needed to finish upgrading the Main deposit and allow all historic vertical holes to be discarded from future resource calculations.

A 2 phase exploration program is proposed for Longstreet in 2012. Phase 1 proposed budget is $378,000, and Phase 2 proposed budget is $547,000. Primary focus of Phase 1 2012 exploration activities at Longstreet will be to enhance the known and defined resource in the Main Zone, upgrade the resource with in-fill and core drilling where needed, add some core holes in the Main Zone for resource verification, and initiate evaluation of some of the additional higher priority targets. Phase 1 proposes 10to 13 RC holes 300 foot average depth each in the Main Zone (see Figure 17A). These holes will be placed in areas where there are 'holes' in the resource and a high likelihood of adding to the Main resource. In addition, some of these holes will be placed in areas of the resource which currently rely largely on historic drilling, so that the resource may be raised to a higher level of confidence. Phase 1 will also include 4 to 5 core holes of 300-400 foot depths, also within the Main Resource zone. These core holes will also be placed in areas where they a high likelihood of enhancing the resource. Additionally the core will provide confirmation of both recent and historic RC results, and provide material more suitable for metallurgical and petrologic testing. Metallurgical testing is included in Phase 1 in order to better characterize the recovery and economic potential of the Main Zone.




Page 19 of 26






Finally, four RC holes are planned at the North target and one in the Opal Ridge target to test the down-dropped extension of the Main Resource are included in Phase 1. These will be all be angle holes, except the single hole at Opal Ridge. Phase 2 drilling, also scheduled for 2012, is contingent on results of Phase 1.


The Phase 1 drilling program has two goals:


·

To expand, within the areas already drilled to shallow depths (120ft) in the 1980’s, by drilling to depths of 400ft and to infill drill by tighter spacing.

·

To expand, by going outside the Main area, to two new areas at “Opal Ridge” and “North.”


Drilling Highlights – Main


Highlights of the drilling results are shown in the table below and a plan map of drill hole locations can be found on the Star Gold website www.stargoldcorp.com. The plan map can be found at www.stargoldcorp.com/news/map.pdf.


Eight (8) holes, all drilled at Main, had intercepts of greater than 100 feet true width of +0.01 oz/ton AuEq. Two (2) of those holes had approximately 300 feet thickness (LS-1202 and 1209), and three (3) others had approximately 200 feet thicknesses (LS-1203, 1206 and 1207). Results received to date are from the shallowest part of Main with mineralization nearly continuous from the surface to the footages mentioned below. The next batch of holes at Main will test the down down-dip extensions.


Some high-grade gold/silver have also been intercepted including 5 feet (true width) assaying 1.813 oz/ton gold and 1.16 oz/ton silver in drill hole LS-1205.


Opal Ridge


LS-1201 was drilled as a stratigraphic hole into the Opal Ridge target just southeast of Main. Opal Ridge is the down-faulted southeast extension of Main target. This hole was drilled vertical for 480 feet. From the surface to 60 feet, the hole contained intercepting volcanic sediments and sinter, deposited after the mineralizing event. Below 60 feet, the drill hole intercepted volcanic rocks (moderately welded muti-lithic rhyolite tuff), identical to host litholigies mineralized at the Main Target, suggesting the unaltered volcanic sediments and sinter are not as thick as had previously been expected. Also of interest, the hole was oxidized to total depth, so any mineralization found should be heap leachable. Further drilling is planned to explore for the possible faulted off portion of the Main resource.


Future Drilling Plans


The Company hopes to complete 20 or more holes in its 2012 Phase 1 program which is scheduled for completion by December of this year, contingent on drilling results, capital availability and weather. This will include the first testing of the North target located approximately 2,000 feet north of Main. While the majority of the drilling will be angled reverse circulation holes (RC) a few core holes are being drilled to twin and confirm both current and historic drill results.


All drilling samples were collected in five foot intervals, logged and securely shipped to ALS Chemex Labs, Inc. in Reno, Nevada to be analyzed, by fire assay, for gold and silver. A second sample split is kept on site for possible re-testing or future metallurgy.

At July 31, 2012, the Company had $164,537 cash on hand, and working capital deficit of $395,626. 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, 2012 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 $250,000 in convertible debentures and warrants.  The drilling program discussed above was made possible due to the proceeds from this tranche



Page 20 of 26






of the Placement.  For more information on the Placement please review the Company’s report on Form 8-K filed on June 19, 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.

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.

Legal and professional fees increased $29,274 to $53,462 for the three months ended July 31, 2012 from $24,188 for the three months ended July 31, 2011.  The increase is a result of legal and professional fees related to researching potential financing and capitalization options for the Company.

Investor relations expense has decreased $6,155 to $1,340 for the three months ended July 31, 2012, compared to 7,495 for the three months ended July 31, 3011.  This Company did not engage an investment relations firm during the three months ended July 31, 2012.  Management will engage an investor relations firm during the quarter ending October 31, 2012 and for the foreseeable future thereafter to help improve liquidity and market awareness.      

Management expects an increase in legal and professional fees during the second half of the fiscal year.  

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 2012 and the fourth quarter of fiscal year ending April 30, 2012.

The Company increased total assets to $863,174 at July 31, 2012 compared to $707,749 at April 30, 2012, 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 $205,499 to $311,999. Prepaid expenses increased to $338,763 due to deposits required on exploration activities at the Longstreet Property and retainer amounts paid to a legal firm assisting in capitalization activities.    

At July 31, 2012, the Company has working capital of $395,626 primarily as a result of $317,488 in prepaid drilling expense.  

The Company utilized $12,986 in cash from Investing Activities on certain annual lease payments on capitalized mineral assets at its Longstreet, Jet and Excalibur projects for the three months ended July 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 July 31, 2012, the Company had cash of $164,537.  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, 2012, 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, 2012, the Company incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the year then ended, and at April 30, 2012, 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.
