  1. 1. Developing the King-king Cu/Au Deposit A Project for the Philippines Corporate Presentation – March 2012 TSX: SAU www.sagcmining.com
  2. 2. Forward-Looking StatementsThis presentation contains “forward-looking statements” that were based on St. Augustine Gold & Copper Ltd’sexpectations, estimates and projections as of the dates which those statements were made. These forward-lookingstatements include, among other things, statements with respect to St. Augustine Gold & Copper Ltd’s businessstrategy, plans, outlook and shareholder value, projections, targets, and expectations as to reserves, resources, resultsof exploration (including targets) and related expenses, mine development, mine operations, mine production costs,drilling activity, sampling and other data, recovery improvements, future production levels, capital costs, cost savings,cash and total costs of production of gold, expenditures for environmental matters, reclamation and other post closureobligations and estimated future expenditures for those matters, completion dates for the various development stagesof projects, future gold prices (including the long-term estimated prices used in calculating mineral reserves), andcurrency exchange rates.Generally, these forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as“outlook,” “anticipate,” “project,” “target,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “forecast,” “should,” and similarexpressions. Forward-looking statements are necessarily based upon a number of estimates and assumptions that,while considered reasonable, are inherently subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties, and other factors thatmay cause St. Augustine Gold & Copper Ltd’s actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to bematerially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.An NI 43-101 has been prepared by Independent Mining Consultants, Inc with respect to the King-king project. APreliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) has not yet been prepared and, consequently, any economic estimates,including all assumptions and costs, have yet to be verified.
