  3. 3. Argentina Mining Sector – Outlook • Excellent Mineral Potential − The geological settings indicate great potential for new world class discoveries . − Mining sector has been growing rapidly. − Comparison with main players in Latin-American Region show that Argentina is in an early stage of development. 2013 annual exports: • The Country output is currently based on 10 mines, that provide 1% GDP (US$500 billion). • There are also in the Pipeline: − 8 development stage mining projects. − 14 advanced exploration projects. • During last years there was an extensive activity on M&A deals. 1 Country USD Billion Source Chile 44.5 Sonami Peru 22.7 Mincetur Argentina 4.5
  4. 4. Argentina – Outlook 2 • The country was growing at almost Chinese rates during past decade, but in 2012 went into a non- growing period. • Country´s GDP is about US$ 500 billion while external debt slightly above one third, mainly long term restructured. Government and Social Security Institutions hold nearly half of this amount. • During past decade, the country has been servicing interest and capital at maturity with no new access to the capital market (there are still pending some issues like “Holdouts”, Club de Paris and YPF –REPSOL discussions). • 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 (government version). • Due to systematic loss of Central Bank reserves, a maxi-devaluation of 26% raised the US$ exchange rate to AP$ 7.85 followed by an increase in the domestic interest rates pointing to anchoring the exchange rate , raise the country's competitiveness and stopping leakage away on reserves. • Oil & gas and mining developments are called to become the second engine to build up a sustainable long term growth, together with the existing agricultural and agribusiness sector.
  5. 5. Corporate Overview 3 • Milestones Accomplished − Minera Sud Argentina S.A (MSA), Minsud’s local operating arm, developed an original portfolio of grass roots Ag-Au projects in the Patagonia region of southern Argentina beginning in 2004. − Between 2006 and 2010, the company gradually acquired key parts (Chita, Brechas Vacas & Minas de Pinto) of its flagship Chita Valley Au-Ag-Cu-Mo Project in the prolific Central Andes mineral belt in western San Juan Province, Argentina. − In 2011, Minsud shares listed its shares in the TSX- Venture Exchange to ensure high quality of Corporate, Financial and Technical standards. − During the second half of 2011 the Company complied with the Phase 1 by drilling 3,360 m at Chita Valley while during 2012 advanced La Rosita up to target definition (still pending IP/resistivity). − In 2012 - 2013 Implemented a Systematic exploration program in Chita Valley by mapping and channel sampling all the identified targets, some of them ready for drilling while raising capital in times of crisis among highly supportive long term shareholders.
  6. 6. Corporate Overview • Strategic Approach − Minsud will continue riding up the current crisis focused on a prudent use of funds in critical fieldwork. − The mineral endowment of Argentina is believed to be a sound base that will enable the development of a successful exploration company within the medium to long term. − The company is actively exploring possible mutually beneficial JVA with well-established mining/exploration companies or majors on its existing projects, but it is also prepared to test a significant stockwork Cu-Mo in the Chita Porphyry Stock South by first semester 2014. − Minsud also plans to possibly enhance its portfolio by selective acquisition of exceptional mineral properties. − Minsud is looking for increasing investor´s base through partners with long term vision to further develop more fluid access to financing when the capital market eventually improves. − Company fundamentals will keep Minsud attractive to investors in a close future. 4 TSX-V 5 YEARS
