TNR Gold Corp. (TSX-V: TNR) is a mineral exploration company actively pursuing a portfolio of gold, copper, and Rare Earth Element (REE) containing properties worldwide. Our primary focus is in exploration and development of our key ventures which are the Shotgun gold project in Alaska, TNR iron ore and REE projects in Soules Bay, Canada and our ongoing project generator in Argentina. The Argentine Los Azules project is held under the wholly-owned subsidiary Solitario Argentina S. A. ("Solitario"), we are currently moving forward with the litigation over some of the claims on the property while we continue to explore and identifying new quality prospective ventures globally.

TNR's strategy is to strengthen its assets through partnerships with mid-tier and major companies, and establish long-term cash flow through royalty interests and project development.

  • 8. Primary REE Source - Carbonatite• A Carbonatite is an igneous rock comprising at least 50% carbonate minerals.• Usually occur as small plugs within concentrically zoned alkalic intrusive complexes.• Greatly enriched in niobium, rare-earth elements, barium, strontium, phosphorus, and fluorine Idealized carbonatite pipe (modified from8 Jébrack and Marcoux, 2008)
  • 9. Carbonatite REE Mine Example• Production at the Niobec mine began in 1976.• Niobec mine has an excellent history of reserve renewal over 30 years of operation.• 29.5 million tonnes grading 0.68% Nb2O5 Produced• Currently producing approximately 7-8% of world consumption.• 23.5 million tonnes grading 0.59% Nb2O5 current Measured & Indicated Resources9 (modified from Iamgold, 2009 43-101 Technical Report)

  • 20. Big Beaver House – 1987 OGS Samples• Ontario Geological Survey analyzed historic drill core and confirmed significant REE mineralization• OGS (Sage 1982) reported up to 3,200 ppm Nd+La+Ce Indicates Significant and Untested REE Potential21
  • 21. Big Beaver House REE Project - Summary• One of the largest ( 5x5 km ) Carbonatite complexes• Excellent Model for REEs• Underexplored - Limited Historic Drilling - REE Potential not tested• Sampling of Historic Drill Core Reveals Presence of Significant REEs Excellent Exploration Target for REEs22
