Although believedto be reliable, management of the Company has not independently verified such information. TSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 12
  13. 13. Akorade ProjectNine contiguous licenses covering two keystructural trends for gold deposits.• Nine Concessions: Bonsaso (90%), Dompem (100%, 2.5% NSR), Enyinase (100%, 2.5% NSR), POW (82.5%), Asuogya (95%), Ayiem (95%), Nkwanta (95%), Kedadwen (95%) and Great Yorkshire (100%)• Cross Structures on Birimian-Tarkwaian Boundary host similar structural controls as deposits currently being mined by nearby Goldfields (Damang) and Anglogold-Ashanti (Iduapriem)• Flexures on N-S Structure host similar structural and geological targets as Golden Star (HBB-FatherBrown) and Endeavor Mining (Nzema)TSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 13
  14. 14. 2012 Exploration Program Approved $5M exploration program: currently being reviewed • Drill Program: split between follow-up (Apankrah, Dansuom), and target evaluation (Nana, Scorpio) and geophyiscal anomalies • Ground geophysics over key structural and geological targets • Mapping and sampling programs: target generation and prioritization • New target evaluation: RAB drilling scheduled late in the year • Position for definition or aggressive follow up on best target(s)TSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 14
  15. 15. Targets – Drill Highlights1. Apankrah Target (Nkwanta): • 10.0m of 6.7 g/t Au incl. 2.5m of 10.2 g/t Au • 9.8m of 6.8 g/t Au incl. 1.0 m of 51.8 g/t Au • 20m of 3.2 g/t Au, incl. 2.8m of 17.4 g/t Au • 7.5m of 7.2 g/t Au, incl. 2.2m of 24.2 g/t Au2.

Dansuom Target (POW): • 10.8m of 2.9 g/t Au, incl. 3.6m of 8.0 g/t Au • 16.5m of 0.7 g/t Au, incl. 6.9m of 1.2 g/t Au • 15.0m of 0.6 g/t Au, incl. 4.5m of 1.6 g/t Au * ~9500 metres drilled to dateTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 15
  16. 16. Nkwanta Concession - TargetsCombined these targets have thepotential to be an anchorresource for CAP.V1. Apankrah Target: High potential based on productive ENE structural orientations and initial high grade drill results2. Scorpio Target: Strong chargeability based on IP survey. Appears to be a linking structure between the Apankrah & Nana targets3. Nana Target: Parallel structure north of Apankrah. Evaluating an inferred shoot based on drill results and the geometry confirmed at the Apankrah target4. Un-named Target: Parallel structure located north of the Nana target. Active with artisanal miningTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 16
  17. 17. Apankrah TargetEncouraging results to date;reflective of adjacent producerswhich lie on similar structuralcorridors.• Follow-up drilling indicated that the shoot is still open on strike at depth to the west, down dip and down plunge• Initial results partially defined the geometry of the previously inferred higher grade shoot• Minimal arsenopyrite in alteration halo – not associated with higher grade assay values (free gold)• Drilling continues on targetTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 17
  18. 18. Dansuom TargetAn open 1,400m x 200m gold-in-soilanomaly defined by gold values >30 ppb.• Drilling confirmed a minimum strike of 500m to 100m depth and remains open in all directions• The structural trend is generally north- south and appears to be a splay off of the large regional structure• A key structural intersection within the target area occurs where easterly trending structures intersect the north- south target zone• Additional field work and sampling is currently taking place within the target areaTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 18
  19. 19. 2012 Target Generation• 25 target areas covering all 9 concessions• Focused regional and target scale geological mapping, prospecting & sampling• Further evaluate the Asuoyga/Ayiem 9km gold in soil anomaly• Select target refinement – geophysics, auger drilling & trenching• Prioritize, compile & evaluate new highly prospective targets• Review and compare new targets with pre- existing targets• Propose Phase 1 drill program on highest potential targetsTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 19
  20. 20. Exploration StrategyNext Steps: • Continued follow up on high potential Apankrah target, including linking structures • Continued field work for target generation, evaluating inferred structure and geology by mapping, prospecting and soil & auger sampling • Complete road construction and improve access to Dansuom target leading to follow-up • Identify additional key areas to review and compare to current results and data • Follow-up strategically & aggressively on prioritized high potential targets and deliver the greatest resource potential • Continue to evaluate the land package for additional resource potentialTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com 20

  25. 25. Appendix – VTEM/Magnetic/Radiometric Airborne Geophysical Survey• Completed a 3,425 km airborne survey over entire ~225 sq. km land package• First modern compilation of the geology at a concession and prospect level• Confirmed initial interpretations of controls, specifically, flexures on the inferred north-south structures and cross structures on Birimian-Tarkwaian boundary resemble similar controls for deposits currently being mined in the areaTSX.V: CAP|castlepeakmining.com
