“Quoin” of our flag ship, the Chita Valley Project.
• During the following years we extended the area to the adjacent
properties, Brechas Vacas (west) and Minas de Pinto and Chita II
claim (east), putting the area of geological interest “vis a vis” with the

VI. Argentine Outlook
• The country was growing at almost Chinese rates during past decade, but in
2012 went into a non-growing period.
• Country´s GDP is about 500 billion while external debt slightly above one
third, mainly long term restructured.
• Government and Social Security Institutions hold about the half of this
• During past decade, the country has been paying interest services and
capital at maturity with no new access to the capital market.
• In this framework the mining development is called to become the second
engine to grow added to the existing agricultural and agribusiness sector.
• The most important aspects affecting the domestic market are the high
inflation and restriction on the foreign exchange market that came up as
a palliative to the impact of the European crisis.
VII. Minsud- Share Structure
I. Share Structure
Issued and outstanding
Warrants and other options
• Based on shares issued, we feel
Minsud has potential for raising
more money when appropriated.
• Currently, management believes
that market does not recognize
the real value of the company.
II. Significant shareholders
Compañía de Tierras Sud Argentino S.A.
Alberto F. Orcoyen
Panedile S.A.I.C.F.e I.
Pinetree Capital Corp
• Our current cash position up to
date is about C$ 800,000.
VIII. Minsud - 2013 Business Plan
• During this first semester Minsud will complete a systematic exploration
at the Chita Valley Project in order to define high quality drilling targets.
• We have already started to look for a JVP among majors and larger
explorers and expect to have proposals according to the size and quality of
the Chita Valley Project in two or three months.
• After joint venturing the Chita project, Minsud will continue to explore
early stage projects within its own portfolio or searching for new deals into
• These actions will allow Minsud to participate in the great opportunity
that exists in an underexplored country, such as Argentina.
• Consolidating Minsud as a solid player in the long run while
minimizing financial risk will be our future milestone.
• Intensify Investor Relations activities, it is a still
enhance investor base and provide stock floating.
