NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
Organization
 
Valor Gold Corp.  (the “Company”), formerly Felafel Corp., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on June 2, 2009. On March 27, 2012, the Company filed an Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation in order to change its name to Valor Gold Corp.
 
On May 24, 2012, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with (i) Red Battle Corp. (“Red Battle”), a Delaware corporation and owner of all of the outstanding membership interests of each of Arttor Gold LLC (“Arttor Gold”), and Noble Effort Gold LLC (“Noble Effort”), (ii) Pershing Gold Corporation (“Pershing”), a Nevada corporation and owner of all of the outstanding capital stock of Red Battle, and (iii) Valor Gold Acquisition Corp., the Company’s newly formed, wholly-owned Delaware subsidiary (“Acquisition Sub”). Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Merger Agreement (the “Merger”), Acquisition Sub merged with and into Red Battle, and Red Battle, as the surviving corporation, became the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary.  In consideration for the Merger, the Company paid Pershing, as Red Battle’s sole shareholder, (i) 25,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock; (ii) $2,000,000 in cash; and (iii) a promissory note in the principal amount of $500,000.  As a result of the Merger, the Company acquired certain business and operations from Pershing primarily consisting of junior gold exploration mining claims and related rights held by Arttor Gold and Noble Effort.  At the effective time of the Merger, the Company discontinued its prior business and operations and revised its business purpose to pursue the business and operations previously pursued by Pershing through its Arttor Gold and Noble Effort subsidiaries as its sole business (see Note 3).
 
Prior to the Merger, the Company was a shell company with no business operations.
 
The Merger was accounted for as a reverse-merger and recapitalization. Red Battle was the acquirer for financial reporting purposes and the Company was the acquired company. Consequently, the assets and liabilities and the operations reflected in the historical financial statements prior to the Merger were those of Red Battle and its wholly owned subsidiaries and was recorded at the historical cost basis of Red Battle, and the consolidated financial statements after completion of the Merger included the assets and liabilities of the Company and Red Battle, historical operations of Red Battle and operations of the Company from the closing date of the Merger.
 
Arttor Gold, a Nevada limited liability company, was formed and organized on April 28, 2011. Arttor Gold operates as a U.S. based junior gold exploration and mining company. For the period from April 28, 2011 (Inception) to June 30, 2012, Arttor Gold had no revenues and recorded transactions related to Arttor Gold’s preliminary exploration activities. Arttor Gold has the rights to explore on two Carlin-type gold properties located in Lander County, Nevada, known as Red Rock and North Battle Mountain. The liability of the member of Arttor Gold is limited to the member’s capital contributions.
 
Noble Effort, a Nevada limited liability company, was formed in June 2011 to explore potential acquisitions of natural resources properties suitable for exploration and development. On May 24, 2012, Arttor Gold and Pershing assigned its rights to explore the Centerra property to Noble Effort pursuant to an Assignment and Assumption of Lease Agreement.

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS (continued)
 
Going Concern
 
The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.  The Company has incurred losses since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $5,785,060 as of June 30, 2012, negative cash flows from operating activities and net loss of $1,992,789 and $4,665,277, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2012.  The Company anticipates further losses in the development of its business raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company generating profitable operations in the future and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. The Company’s ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of common stock is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of the Company’s contemplated plan of operations, and its transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for the Company to continue operations. The ability to successfully resolve these factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements of the Company do not include any adjustments that may result from the outcome of these aforementioned uncertainties.
 
NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Basis of presentation
 
The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) and present the consolidated financial statements of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries as of June 30, 2012. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidation. All adjustments (consisting of normal recurring items) necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position as of June 30, 2012, and the results of operations and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2012 have been included. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The accounting policies and procedures employed in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements have been derived from the audited financial statements of the Company for the period from inception to December 31, 2011, which are contained in the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on May 31, 2012. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from those financial statements.
 
Use of estimates
 
In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the balance sheet, and revenues and expenses for the period then ended.  Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates. Significant estimates made by management include, but are not limited to the assumptions used to calculate fair value of options granted and common stock issued for services.
 
Cash and cash equivalents
 
The Company considers all highly liquid investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company places its cash with a high credit quality financial institution. The Company’s account at this institution is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") up to $250,000. In addition to the basic insurance deposit coverage, the FDIC is providing temporary unlimited coverage for non-interest bearing transaction accounts through December 31, 2012. All of our U.S. non-interest bearing cash balances were fully insured at June 30, 2012 due to a temporary U.S. federal program in effect from December 31, 2010 through December 31, 2012. Beginning in 2013, U.S. insurance coverage will revert to $250,000 per depositor at each financial institution. To reduce its risk associated with the failure of such financial institution, the Company evaluates at least annually the rating of the financial institution in which it holds deposits.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
Exploration Stage Company
 
The Company has been in the exploration stage since its formation and has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations. The Company has not commenced business operations. The Company is an exploration stage company as defined in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915 “Development Stage Entities”.
 
Fair value of financial instruments
 
 The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing US GAAP that require the use of fair value measurements which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.
 
ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, ASC 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:
 
 
Level 1:
Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
 
Level 2:
Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.
 
The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of this instrument. The carrying amount of the note payable at June 30, 2012, approximate their respective fair value based on the Company’s incremental borrowing rate.
 
In addition, FASB ASC 825-10-25 “Fair Value Option” was effective for January 1, 2008. ASC 825-10-25 expands opportunities to use fair value measurements in financial reporting and permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value.
 
Prepaid expenses
 
Prepaid expenses of $29,081 and $63,677 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, consist primarily of costs paid for future services which will occur within a year. Prepaid expenses include prepayments in cash for services, and prepaid mining claim fees which are being amortized over the terms of their respective agreements.
 
Mineral Property
 
Costs of lease, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. The Company has chosen to expense all mineral exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the exploration stage. Once the Company has identified proven and probable reserves in its investigation of its properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, it would enter the development stage and capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be amortized, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When the Company has capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value.
 
 
8

 
 
NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
Exploration costs
 
Exploration costs, which include maintenance, development and exploration of mineral claims, are expensed as incurred.  When it is determined that a mineral deposit can be economically developed as a result of establishing proven and probable reserves, the costs incurred after such determination will be capitalized  and charged to operations on a unit-of-production method based on estimated recoverable reserves.
 
Bond
 
The Company posted a surface management bond with Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) for a total of $55,000 and was included in deposits as reflected in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.
 
Impairment of long-lived assets
 
Long-lived assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable. The Company recognizes an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value. The Company does not have long-lived assets and therefore did not consider it necessary to record any impairment charges during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and for the period ended December 31, 2011.
 
Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share
 
Net loss per common share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260: Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260”). Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The computation of diluted net loss per share does not include dilutive common stock equivalents in the weighted average shares outstanding as they would be anti-dilutive. The Company has 400,000 options outstanding at June 30, 2012 and were excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding as they would have had an anti-dilutive impact on the Company’s net loss. The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted loss per share:

Income taxes
 
The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes.   Under ASC Topic 740, deferred tax assets are recognized for future deductible temporary differences and for tax net operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for temporary differences that will result in taxable amounts in future years. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the periods in which the deferred tax asset or liability is expected to be realized or settled. A valuation allowance is provided to offset the net deferred tax asset if, based upon the available evidence, management determines that it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)
 
ASC Topic 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740, also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. The Company may, from time to time, be assessed interest and/or penalties by taxing jurisdictions, although any such assessments historically have been minimal and immaterial to its financial results. In the event the Company has received an assessment for interest and/or penalties, it has been classified in the statements of operations as other general and administrative costs.

NOTE 3 – MERGER AGREEMENT
 
On May 24, 2012, the Company entered into a Merger Agreement with (i) Red Battle, owner of all of the outstanding membership interests of each of Arttor Gold, and Noble Effort (ii) Pershing, owner of all of the outstanding capital stock of Red Battle, and (iii) Acquisition Sub (see Note 1). Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Merger Agreement, the Company’s Acquisition Sub merged with and into Red Battle, and Red Battle, as the surviving corporation, became the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary.  In consideration for the foregoing, the Company paid Pershing, as Red Battle’s sole shareholder, (i) $2,000,000 in cash (the “Cash Consideration”), (ii) a 5% promissory note in the principal amount of $500,000 due 18 months following the issuance date (the “Note”) and (iii) 25,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Stock Consideration”, and, together with the Cash Consideration and the Note, the “Merger Consideration”).  As further consideration, (i) Arthur Leger entered into an NSR Agreement with Pershing Royalty Company, the wholly owned subsidiary of Pershing granting Pershing Royalty Company a 1% royalty on certain claims; (ii) Mr. Leger agreed to cancel 1,750,000 shares of Pershing’s common stock held by Mr. Leger prior to the Merger; and and (iii) Mr. Leger agreed to defer certain royalty payments under the terms of the Lease Agreements with Arttor Gold related to the Red Rocks and North Battle Mineral Prospect Claims.
 
Under the terms of the Note, all outstanding principal, together with all accrued but unpaid interest, is payable upon the earlier of: (i) the closing of  one or more private placements of the Company’s securities in which the Company receives gross proceeds of at least $7,500,000 or (ii) 18 months following the issuance of the Note. As of June 30, 2012, note payable and accrued interest amounted to $500,000 and $2,534, respectively.
 
As a result of the Merger, the Company acquired certain business and operations from Pershing primarily consisting of junior gold exploration mining claims and related rights in Pershing’s two Lander County, Nevada exploration properties, Red Rock Mineral Prospect (including Centerra Prospect) and North Battle Mountain Mineral Prospect held by Arttor Gold and Noble Effort.

NOTE 4– RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
 
Barry Honig, a shareholder of the Company, is a member of Pershing’s Board of Directors. Prior to the Merger Agreement, certain entities under Mr. Honig’s control and family members held 5,600,003 shares of the Company. Additionally, one of the shareholders of Pershing (the “Shareholder”) held 750,000 shares of the Company prior to the Merger. Contemporaneously with the closing of the Merger, the Shareholder purchased 1,250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock in the Company’s Private Placement.  Additionally, entities under Mr. Honig’s control purchased 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock in the Private Placement. 
 
Assuming the conversion into common stock of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock, the interest in the Company of the Shareholder and entities controlled by Mr. Honig shall account for 18% upon the closing of the Merger.  In addition to being large shareholders of Pershing and the Company, both the Shareholder and Mr. Honig/entities controlled by Mr. Honig, directly and indirectly, may influence Pershing’s decisions with respect to voting of the 25,000,000 shares owned by Pershing, through ownership interests in Continental Resources Group, Inc. (a company which is one of the largest shareholders of Pershing) and their investments in both the Company and Pershing. Mr. Honig has served as co-Chairman of Pershing and currently is a director of Pershing.  Accordingly, Pershing and Mr. Honig are considered to be founders and “promoters” of the Company as defined under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”).  As a result of the aforementioned, the Shareholder and Mr. Honig/entities controlled by Mr. Honig being among the largest shareholders of the Company and Pershing, there may exist certain conflicts of interest with respect to the business and affairs of each of these companies.  The Company believes that such Shareholder and Mr. Honig/entities controlled by Mr. Honig are independent private investors who have no agreements, arrangements or understandings with respect to the ownership or control over any of these companies.
 
The Company also considered the guidance in EITF 02-5 “Common Control”, that the Merger Agreement was not treated as a common control transaction as there were no group of shareholders that holds more than 50% of the voting ownership interest of each entity with contemporaneous written evidence of an agreement to vote a majority of the entities’ shares in concert exists.

In February 2012, the Company filed for an additional 36 unpatented lode mining claims with BLM located in the North Battle Mountain Mineral Prospect.
 
The Red Rock Mineral Prospect is located in Lander County, Nevada, 26 miles south of the town of Battle Mountain.  The property consists of five groups of unpatented lode mining claims, totaling 269 claims and encompassing approximately 5,600 acres.  The Red Rock Mineral Prospect can be accessed from Nevada State Highway 305, traveled south from Battle Mountain approximately 26 miles to the Carico Lake Valley/Red Rock Canyon turn-off, then east along an improved gravel road less than a mile to the western claim boundary.  Most of the property is accessible by secondary gravel and unimproved dirt roads. In August 2011, the Company was granted the exclusive right to explore, mine and develop any and all metals, ores and other minerals on the properties located within the Red Rock Properties which consist of an additional 24 unpatented mining claims under a mining lease agreement with Centerra (US) Inc.

Royalty Agreement - F.R.O.G. Consulting, LLC
 
On May 24, 2011, Arttor Gold entered into two lease agreements with F.R.O.G.

Arttor Gold is also required to make annual claim maintenance payments to BLM and to the county in which its property is located in order to maintain its rights to explore and, if warranted, to develop its property. If Arttor Gold fails to meet these obligations, it will lose the right to explore for gold on its property.
 
Until production is achieved, Arttor Gold’s lease payments (deemed “advance minimum royalties”) consist of an initial payment of $5,000 upon signing of each lease, followed by annual payments according to the following schedule for each lease:

In the original lease, the Parties intended to identify Arthur Leger as the owner and lessor of the Red Rock Mineral Property and the North Battle Mountain Mineral Prospect and to designate the Payment Agent as the entity responsible for collecting and receiving all payments on behalf of Lessor. Lessor is the sole member of the Payment Agent and owns 100% of the outstanding membership interests of the Payment Agent.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
 
This Report on Form 10-Q and other written and oral statements made from time to time by us may contain so-called “forward-looking statements,” all of which are subject to risks and uncertainties.  Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “expects,” “plans,” “will,” “forecasts,” “projects,” “intends,” “estimates,” and other words of similar meaning.  One can identify them by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.  These statements are likely to address our growth strategy, financial results and product and development programs.  One must carefully consider any such statement and should understand that many factors could cause actual results to differ from our forward looking statements.  These factors may include inaccurate assumptions and a broad variety of other risks and uncertainties, including some that are known and some that are not.  No forward looking statement can be guaranteed and actual future results may vary materially.
 
Information regarding market and industry statistics contained in this Report is included based on information available to us that we believe is accurate.  It is generally based on industry and other publications that are not produced for purposes of securities offerings or economic analysis.  We have not reviewed or included data from all sources, and cannot assure investors of the accuracy or completeness of the data included in this Report.  Forecasts and other forward-looking information obtained from these sources are subject to the same qualifications and the additional uncertainties accompanying any estimates of future market size, revenue and market acceptance of products and services.  We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statement.  As a result, investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
 
Recent Events
 
On May 24, 2012, we entered into the Merger Agreement with (i) Red Battle , a Delaware corporation and owner of all of the outstanding membership interests of each of Arttor Gold and Noble Effort , (ii) Pershing Gold, a Nevada corporation and owner of all of the outstanding capital stock of Red Battle and (iii) Acquisition Sub. Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Merger Agreement, Acquisition Sub merged with and into Red Battle, and Red Battle, as the surviving corporation, became our wholly-owned subsidiary.  In consideration for the Merger, we paid Pershing, as Red Battle’s sole shareholder, (i) $2,000,000 in cash  (ii) a 5% promissory note in the principal amount of $500,000 due 18 months following the issuance date and (iii) 25,000,000 shares of our common stock. As of the date of this report, the note payable to Pershing amounted to $500,000.
 
Between May 24, 2012 and June 27, 2012, we sold an aggregate 6,087,500 shares of common stock to certain investors for an aggregate purchase price of $2,435,000 or a purchase price of $0.40 per share. We received gross proceeds of $2,360,000 and subscription receivable of $75,000 that has been collected in July 2012.
 
On May 24, 2012, we appointed Arthur Leger, David Rector and Oliver-Barret Lindsay as directors of the Company.  In addition, on May 24, 2012, Arthur Leger was appointed as the Company’s new Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary.  The Company issued an aggregate of 9,100,000 shares of common stock to the directors of which 5,100,000 shares vest immediately and the remaining shares are subject to vesting condition upon the discovery of gold on our properties. We also granted options to purchase 400,000 shares of Common Stock to Mr. Lindsay and one fourth of the options shall vest every six months provided that Mr. Lindsay remains on the Company’s board of directors.
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
 
 
17

 
 
Management believes the following critical accounting policies affect the significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of the financial statements.
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and present the financial statements of the Company and our wholly-owned subsidiary. In the preparation of our consolidated financial statements, intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated.
 
 Exploration Stage Company
 
We have been in the exploration stage since our formation and have not yet realized any revenues from our planned operations. We have not commenced business operations. We are an exploration stage company as defined in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915 “Development Stage Entities”.
 
Use of Estimates
 
In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated balance sheet, and revenues and expenses for the period then ended.  Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates.
 
Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs
 
Costs of lease, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. We have chosen to expense all mineral exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the exploration stage. Exploration costs, which include maintenance, development and exploration of mineral claims, are expensed as incurred.  Once we have identified proven and probable reserves in our investigation of our properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, we would enter the development stage and capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be amortized, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When we have capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value. To date, we have not established the commercial feasibility of any exploration prospects; therefore, all costs are being expensed.
 
Long-Lived Assets
 
We review 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”. We recognize an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
Accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements upon adoption.
 
Results of Operations
 
Valor Gold Corp.’s business began on April 28, 2011 and accordingly, we had minimal operations for the prior period. We are an exploration stage company with no operations and have generated no revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and for the period from April 28, 2011 (Inception) to June 30, 2012.
 
Operating Expenses
 
Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the period from April 28, 2011 (Inception) to June 30, 2011, were approximately $4.6 million and $89,000, respectively. The overall increase of $4.5 million in operating costs is primarily attributable to having no comparable operating expenses during the prior period from April 28, 2011 (inception) to June 30, 2011 as we were in our early stages of our operations.
 
Total operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to the period from April 28, 2011 (Inception) to June 30, 2011, were approximately $4.7 million and $89,000, respectively. The $4.6 million increase in operating expenses for the six month period ended 2012 includes approximately $2.1 million of compensation expense related primarily to a stock based compensation expense of $2 million; $0.8 million in exploration expenses on our North Battle Mountain and Red Rock properties, $1.6 million in consulting fees related primarily to stock based consulting expenses of $0.4 million and investor relation expenses of $1.1 million, $0.2 million of professional fees primarily related to accounting and legal services and $50,000 in general and administrative expenses primarily for rent and office expenses.
 
Other Expense
 
Total other expense was approximately $2,500 for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and is primarily attributable to interest expense incurred from our note payable to Pershing.
 
Net Loss
 
As a result of the operating expense and other expense discussed above, we reported a net loss of approximately $4.6 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and net loss of $4.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012. We reported a net loss of approximately $89,000 for the period from April 28, 2011 (Inception) to June 30, 2011.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At December 31, 2011, our cash and cash equivalents totaled approximately $380,000 compared to $730,000 at June 30, 2012. During the six months ended June 30, 2012, we received proceeds of approximately $4.4 million from the sale of common stock and preferred stock.  These increases were more than offset by approximately $0.8 million in exploration costs, $1.1 million of investor relations and consulting fees and a $2 million payment to Pershing in connection with the Merger Agreement.  We also issued a $500,000 note to Pershing pursuant to the Merger Agreement.
 
In the remaining 6 months of 2012, we plan to spend approximately $3 million on our gold exploration expenses for our Battle Mountain and Red Rock properties, $60,000 for property maintenance costs, and approximately $0.5 million on public company expenses.  We will not have sufficient capital to fund our exploration program as it is currently planned or to fund the acquisition and exploration of new properties through 2012 and will need to raise additional funds.

We currently have no material commitments for capital expenditures. We may be required to raise additional funds, particularly if we are unable to generate positive cash flow as a result of our operations.   We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash is insufficient to satisfy our cash requirements for the next 12 months. We presently have no other alternative source of working capital. We may not have sufficient working capital to fund the expansion of our operations and to provide working capital necessary for our ongoing operations and obligations for the next 12 months. We have not generated any revenues to support our daily operations from the inception of exploration stage. We may need to raise significant additional capital to fund our future operating expenses, pay our obligations, and grow our Company. We do not anticipate we will be profitable in 2012.  Therefore our future operations will be dependent on our ability to secure additional financing.  Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. The trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect significant amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we will likely be required to curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations.
 
Off-balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as stockholder’s equity or that are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to such entity.
 
Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
Not required for smaller reporting companies.
 
Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures.
 
We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures 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.
 
               With respect to the quarterly period ended June 30, 2012, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operations of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon this evaluation, the Company’s management has concluded that certain disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2012 due to the Company’s limited internal resources and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review. However, to the extent possible, we will implement procedures to assure that the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions will be performed by separate individuals. We believe that the foregoing steps will remediate the significant deficiency identified above, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of these steps and make any changes that our management deems appropriate.

Management is in the process of determining how best to change our current system and implement a more effective system to ensure that information required to be disclosed in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q has been recorded, processed, summarized and reported accurately. Our management acknowledges the existence of this problem, and intends to developed procedures to address them to the extent possible given limitations in financial and manpower resources. While management is working on a plan, no assurance can be made at this point that the implementation of such controls and procedures will be completed in a timely manner or that they will be adequate once implemented.
 
Changes in Internal Controls.
 
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended June 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
