  2. 2. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION may contain forward–looking statements. Forward looking statements address future events and conditions and therefore involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those currently anticipated in such statement. Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause Mogul Venture Corp’s actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Such factors include, but are not limited to: uncertainties related to the historical resource estimates, the work expenditure commitments; the ability to raise sufficient capital to fund future exploration or development programs; changes in economic condition or financial markets, regulatory, political and competitive developments; technological or operational difficulties or an inability to obtain permits required in connection with maintaining, or advancing projects; and labour relation matters *All historical resource estimates quoted herein date from the 1960s and 1970s and are based on prior data and reports obtained and prepared by previous operators and information provided by the State, using a Russian classification system not compatible with 43-101. Insufficient data exists to compare Russian categories to current C.I.M. categories. A qualified person has not completed sufficient work to verify the classification of the historic mineral resources and as such they should not be considered as current resources and they should not be relied upon. Mogul Ventures believes these historical results provide an indication of the potential of the property and are relevant to ongoing exploration. It should also be noted that mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability as defined by NI 43-101 guidelines. 2

  9. 9. TIN MARKET OVERVIEW According to LME, Tin (Sn) is the only industrial metal with ongoing physical supply deficits for 2013 • • 9 As growth in electronics manufacturing shifted from the West to the East, Asia has emerged as the leading consumer of Tin Not surprisingly, China is both its biggest producer and consumer
  10. 10. TIN USAGE • Over 50% of Tin is used as a solder. Emergence of lead-free solders has boosted demand • Tinplate’s share (tin coated steel, such as in cans and containers) has come down significantly • There is an increasing trend of tin usage for various chemical and industrial applications such as: • Stabilizer for PVC plastics • Lithium-ion batteries • Cutting-edge technologies such as carbon nanotubes and graphene • Solar cells, acid batteries and electric car batteries • 10 Tin Usage Various chemical catalysts Source: ITRI

Estimated cash costs for a typical underground mine with 1% grade is ~$20,000/t1 10% of world mine production comes from the San Rafael underground mine in Peru (owned by Minsur) which is slated to run out of ore within 4 years2. Small and artisanal mines, which account for ~100ktpa of global mine supply, are being closed as well Open pit production is in a small minority, but has advantage as estimated cash costs at 1% grade are under $10,000/t1 7 out of 10 top producers have experienced production volume declines in 20123 Indonesia, which supplies 40% of globally mined tin, has tightened regulations resulting in a 90% reduction in exports 4 Source: (1) Greenfields Research (2) Minsur (3, 4) ITRI
  12. 12. TIN SECONDARY SUPPLY Secondary Recycled Tin Production • • Not surprisingly, China again is the biggest recycler • 12 Including alloys, more than 30% of world tin consumption is from recycled tin Tin recycling is likely peaking or has peaked Source: ITRI
  13. 13. TIN MARKET Actual and Inflation-Adjusted Prices Historic and Forecasted Demand • • 13 In early 2011, Tin prices hit a high of over $32,000/t For new mine supplies to materialize, prices are likely to hold or stay above current levels of about $23,000/t Source: ITRI

  16. 16. OORTSOG OVOO DEPOSIT • Cassiterite (Sn) skarn system with Zn-Pb-CuFe-W-Ag-In • Twenty four ore bodies have been identified and studied to varying extents • Historic exploration focused on Sn provided following results: • • ~6.7 Mt @ an average grade of 0.65% Sn, with no credits for other metals present • The deposit was proposed to be mined via 5 open pits to a maximum depth of 150m, with average stripping ratio of 4:1 • 16 Historic Resources totalling 39,237 t Sn Metal reported*, making Oortsog Ovoo an overall top 20 deposit in the world1 Low Sulphide Sn-dominant (0.25 to 1.13% Sn) and High Sulphide Zn-Pb-Cu-Fe-Ag-In zones delineated The historical drilling had very low core recovery rates (60%-65%) due to the low quality of Soviet drills. With the use of modern drilling equipment, Mogul has accomplished a higher core recovery rate which may result in higher detected metal grades when assayed *Historical resources - see note on Page 2 of Presentation (1) Based on resource size ranking by ITRI
  17. 17. OORTSOG OVOO DEPOSIT • • 41 holes were drilled on the three zones depicted • A significant trenching program of 207 trenches was also conducted • Rock chip samples taken by Mogul also had high grades of copper ranging as high as 1.5%, 3% and over 6% • A total of eight mineralized zones have been identified, three of which have had a significant amount of exploration work • 17 A significant historical body of exploration work exists on Oortsog Ovoo There is excellent potential for expanding resources through exploring the zones that have not been explored yet as well as areas in between zones
  18. 18. GROUND MAGNETICS PROGRAM North Zone 0.5km Magnetic Intrusive? Middle Zone • Central Zone Eastern Zone 1km 1km • 18 • The Vertical Gradient image above shows a strong linear dipole anomaly is associated with the three main segments which comprise the Northern Zone, which has been delineated to date by trenching and drilling over 1.2km of strike length. South-Eastern Zone The Company contracted a detailed ground magnetic survey in June, 2013 covering a 3.5km by 4km area. The RTP results (above) shows a significant number of magnetic anomalies were detected; many anomalies correlate with known zones while some require follow-up.
  19. 19. 2013 CONFIRMATION PROGRAM • • • • • 19 Mogul conducted a 1,500 meter confirmation drill program in October of 2013 The program focused only on the Eastern zone and a segment of the Northern zone of the system. These areas had the most detailed historical exploration with the resulting potential for rapid resource confirmation/delineation and near-term development The program’s main objectives were: • Parallel drill (twin) select historic holes to confirm and correlate accuracy of historic work • Drill vertical and horizontal step out holes to delineate mineralized zones in detail • Conduct modern assays based on a +90% core recovery rates, which were achieved. This may result in an upside in tin grades as compared to the historically reported resource average of 0.65% Sn • Improve the overall geological understanding of the deposits Subsequent to this program, we believe that either the Northern or Eastern zone can be targeted for rapid exploration and development Results of this program are still pending and will be reported once received and interpreted Photo: Drill rigs at the Eastern Zone of Oortsog Ovoo, magnetite core from drilling
  20. 20. GOALS AND OBJECTIVES • • • • • • 20 Ongoing exploration program is confirming and significantly improving on the historical body of knowledge about Oortsog Ovoo The project has a significant potential for resource expansion as historic work was performed only on outcropping zones and only shallow drilling and trenching were performed At a total strike length of 5km for visible mineralized zones and magnetic anomalies identified through the geophysical program, the project has strong potential for discovery of resources well in excess of historic resource estimates The next stage of exploration at the Oortsog Ovoo polymetallic project will include: • Ground and airborne geophysical surveys • Additional detailed surface sampling and mapping • 10,000 m drill program • Resource modelling and engineering work • Bulk sampling and metallurgical testing • Develop a PFS or BFS based on the most advanced mineralized zones Expand exploration with the aim of making Oortsog Ovoo a 100 kt+ tin deposit with additional credits for other metals Move the historically well explored Northern and Eastern zones in to development and production within 12 to 18 months Photo: Mogul staff and geologists at Oortsog Ovoo skarn, 2012
