investorSCOREcardContinental Precious Minerals Inc. (CZQ-T)Business of the CompanyContinental Precious Minerals Inc. is a Canadian exploration company with a focus on Sweden. Since 2005, it hasconcentrated on its alum shale deposits where it has discovered a large polymetallic mineral deposit at its flagshipproperty, called MMS Viken, and defined a NI 43-101 compliant resource. Continental has completed preliminarymetallurgical test on samples of the deposit, which have demonstrated recovery rates of 90 percent for somemetals. In August 2010, Continental announced the completion of testing for a preliminary economic assessmentwith evaluation of the results to be completed before the end of 2010.Overview of ProjectsContinental Precious Minerals Inc. has 69 mineral exploration licences throughout the country. Thirteen licences arefor conventional hard rock uranium deposits and prospects and 55 cover multi-mineral sediment deposits andprospects hosted in alum shale formations. The company’s current focus is the advancement of its Viken licence,located near the town of Östersund in central Sweden.The Viken LicenceLocated in the central part of Sweden approximately 500 kilometres south of the Arctic Circle, the property subjectto the Viken licence covers 677 hectares with a large multi-mineral deposit containing uranium, nickel, molybdenumand vanadium. On March 19, 2009 the company filed an NI 43-101 technical report on MMS Viken, entitled “ThirdUpdated Technical Report on Viken MMS Licence Area, Jamtland, Kingdom of Sweden.” As seen in the table below,the MMS Viken Licence and portions of adjacent Company licences have an inferred resource estimate of 2,831billion tonnes containing 1 billion pounds of uranium oxide (0.33 lbs/ton), 2 billion pounds of nickel (0.65 lbs/ton),17 billion pounds of vanadium pentoxide (5.36 lbs/ton) and 1.5 billion pounds of molybdenum (0.49 lbs/ton). Theresource estimate also includes an indicated resource of 24 million tonnes containing 10 million pounds of uraniumoxide (0.38 lbs/ton), 17 million pounds of nickel (0.63 lbs/ton), 15 million pounds of molybdenum (0.56 lbs/ton) and162 million pounds of vanadium pentoxide (6.25 lbs/ton).

The estimate of mineral resources may be materially affected by environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, and socio-political, marketing or other relevant issues. (2) The quantity and grade of reported inferred resources in this estimation are uncertain in nature and there has been insufficient exploration to define these inferred resources as an indicated or measured mineral resource and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in upgrading them to an indicated or measured mineral resource category.
