  2. 2. Highlights Huge Prospective Land Holdings in an Emerging Gold District. 100% Ownership. An Excellent Share Structure. Experienced Management. An Aggressive, Systematic Exploration Strategy. Tremendous Upside Potential. 1
  3. 3. Introduction to Tanzania Tanzania has become one of the fastest-emerging gold producers in Africa, and is now the continent’s third largest gold producing country after South Africa and Ghana. Based upon ongoing projects and developing mines, most of Tanzania’s proven gold reserves are from the Lake Victoria Goldfields (LVGF) located in Northern Tanzania. The Handeni/Sindeni area located within Eastern Tanzania, has been known to host gold since 2003. Although the area is regarded as inferior to the Lake Victoria Goldfields (LVGF) (with regards to operational gold mines), Canaco Resources’ (Canaco’s) gold discoveries at Kilindi and Magambazi are indicative of a new and emerging exploration environment, capable of hosting primary gold mineralization. Recent graduate level research published by the University of Western Australia show that the highly-endowed Sukumaland Superterrane, the geological host to Tanzanias most significant gold deposits, may have been overprinted on its East-Southeastern extension by a Proterozoic orogeny adjacent to the Mozambique Belt further East. 2
