Such risks and uncertainties include fluctuations in metal prices, unpredictable results of exploration, uncertainties inherent in the estimation of mineral resources and reserves, fluctuations in the costs of goods and services, problems associated with exploration and mining operations, changes in legal, social or political conditions in the jurisdictions where the company operates, lack of appropriate funding and other risk factors. There can be no assurance that such “forward-looking statements” will prove to be accurate. Potential investors should conduct their own investigation as to the suitability of investing in securities of the company. Martin S.

    • 5. Location Map
    • 6. Turkey: A Great Place for Mining
      • Politically stable, pro-mining, non-bureaucratic

      • Low tax rate, tax incentives in our area, VAT re-payments
        • 0.5-1 % effective royalty, 20 % corporate tax
      • One of the world’s last under explored mineral-rich regions
      • Recent large discoveries include:
      • EGO-T: Kisladag ( 254 Mt @ 0.95 g/t Au – 7.8 M oz Au = $10.7 B )
        • ANO-T: Cöpler (90 Mt @ 1.87 g/t Au – 5.4 M oz Au = $7.4 B)

    • 8. Accomplishments in 2010
      • Raised C$5m in a private placement attracting the first institutional investors in Aldridge (Jan - $1.00 unit with full warrant for two years at $1.50)
      • Restructured the board and management – 5 Directors out, 5 Directors in – all new directors based in Toronto and have significant knowledge and experience in Canadian capital markets
      • Revised our earn-in agreement with Anatolia on Yenipazar
      • Gained analyst coverage from Mackie Research and Clarus Securities, both with target prices nearly 2x our current share price
      • Completed infill drilling and collected metallurgical samples
      • Completed 43-101 complitant PEA in December (commenced in mid July)
      • Relocated our corporate offices to Toronto from Vancouver
      • Hired IR groups Equicom and Profinnotiv for NA and Europe respectively
    • 9. Yenipazar Key Parametres
      • Large land package — 100 km2 property that has seen very limited exploration, level and low-relief, open terrain used predominantly for farming
      • Local support — Near-by village with pro-mining work force and strong community support. Local unskilled labour rate is US$20/day – farmers earn less than that. AGM has been working in the area since 2004.
      • Agreement with Anatolia — to earn 100 % interest. Anatolia Minerals retains 6 % net proceeds interest (revenue minus operational cost) until a total revenue of US$165m, and 10% beyond that amount
      • Commitment — Aldridge must deliver a feasibility to Anatolia. The agreement remains valid without time limit, as long as Aldridge works diligently towards completing feasibility study.
    • 10. Project Details
      • Open pit project — volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) Zn-Pb-Cu-Au-Ag deposit. Robust economics as demonstrated by our PEA.
      • Solid Resource Base — +24 Mt within an optimized open pit shell. This puts Yenipazar in the 90 th percentile of all known VMS deposits as far as size
      • Great Infrastructure — paved road next to the deposit, as well as access to water. Power and rail within approximately 20 km
      • Unique characteristic — Large ore mineral grains due to metamorphism – potentially more cost-efficient separation from host rock than usual VMS-deposits
      • Deposit dimensions — roughly flat lying body should allow for flexible mine sequencing to optimize early payback - 1700 m long, up to 300 m wide, 30-190 m deep, on average about 25-30 m thick. Still open, especially to the north of the deposit
    • 11. Scoping Study Highlights
      • Base Case NPV US$209m & IRR of 23.2 at 7% discount rate
      • At 10% discount rate, NPV US$151m or $4.07per basic share, $2.93 a share fully diluted. (Exercising all options and warrants brings in C$23.5m)
      • Base cases uses 3-year trailing average metal prices and 4.5:1 strip including pre-strip and capex of US$198m for a 12 year mine life assuming 5,700 tpd mill (2m tpa).
      • Average payable production of 23,700 oz Au, 1.1m oz Ag, 10m lbs Cu, 37m lbs Pb, 37m lbs Zn from diluted average grades of 1.02 g/t Au, 31.6 g/t Ag, 0.29% Cu, 1.1% Pb, 1.4% Zn
      • Zn conc grades 55%, Pb conc grades 55% & 1025 g/t Ag, Cu conc grades 23% with 20 g/t gold & 337 g/t Ag
      • Project payback in 3.9 years. LOM average NSR US$57.27/t, LOM average total operating cost $29.65/t.
      • At current metal prices NPV over US$420m and IRR of over 43%
    • 12. Revenue by payable metal production
    • 13. Scoping Study Lowlights
      • Base case used results of ONE locked cycle floatation test
      • Recoveries: Zn 59%, Pb 78%, Cu 77% - well below average for Zn – need to be improved – Proper floatation study to be completed soon (60 – 90 days)
      • Recoveries: Au 37%, Ag 57% - both should be improved. Have three separate solutions to improve these.
      • A doubling of gold recoveries would double the base case NPV (i.e. US$302m at 10% or $8.14 / basic share)
      • A 10% increase in recoveries of each of the 5 metals would result in a 52% increase in our base case NPV.
      • Assumed smelter payability of Au and Ag in the Cu conc were only 90% and 80%; should get 95% for both
      • Assumed payability of Ag in the Pb conc was only 85%; should get 90% - 95%
    • 14. Goals for 2011
      • Improve the recoveries of our metals
      • Discover new VMS bodies on our property surrounding Yenipazar
      • Hire on additional staff with experience overseeing polymetallic feasibility studies
      • Continue to add analyst research coverage
      • Significantly raise our profile among retail investors
      • Graduate to a TSX listing for the company (Initiated already)
      • Evaluate potential M & A opportunities and properties in Turkey
    • 15. Yenipazar Drilling
      • Deposit open to north, where holes had to be abandoned before they could reach the orebody.
      • A number of RC-holes (seen on map in yellow) are to be re-drilled with a diamond rig because the hole stopped in mineralization or presumably earlier. This could significantly add to our resources. To be completed during feasibility
      • For resource determination: 280 RC holes and 6 Diamond holes were used of the total database of 371 holes (364 RC + 9 Diamond)
    • 16. High-grade Intersections Hole-No Interval (m) Thick-ness Au g/t Ag g/t Cu % Pb % Zn % YP-149 92 126 34 m 5.78 93.4 1.11 2.72 3.90 YP-151 58 70 12 m 3.62 52.0 1.03 0.52 2.76 YP-151 74 100 26 m 6.35 52.5 1.62 1.18 2.79 YP-156 42 90 48 m 3.93 16.7 1.09 0.30 0.30 YP-156* 110 150 22 m* 0.46 26.9 0.15 0.81 1.39 YP-264 52 100 48 m 4.72 66.2 0.96 4.22 7.65 YP-282 82 114 32 m 2.93 82.1 0.97 3.10 4.84 *Cumulative thickness of 4 levels in 110-150 m interval
    • 17. Recent Yenipazar Drilling News Pairs of RC and duplicated diamond holes, 5 m apart. * YPD-1 includes 112-114 m (61 g/t Au), 122-124 m (20.15 g/t Au), 124-126 m (12.5 g /t Au). Capped at 10 g/t Au, the average grade for the diamond drilled interval of 62-130 meters is 2.05 g/t Au.
    • 18. Yenipazar Mineralization Large mineral grains at Yenipazar allow for gravitational pre-enrichment
    • 19. Favourable Terrain Shallow topography is ideal for open pit construction
    • 20. Future Milestones for Aldridge
      • Complete the floatation study to improve recoveries and determine which smelters or off-takers to target with our concentrates – Mar / Apr
      • Restart drilling and conduct extensive geophysics at Yenipazar to upgrade resources and to discover new deposits – Results by mid year
      • Commence a feasibility study at Yenipazar – Mar / Requires 12 to 18 mo.
      • Restart our PNG exploration work including initial drilling – Mar / Would likely require 6 mo
      • Graduate to the TSX and complete an AIF
    • 21. Typical VMS Mining Camps (Source: Geological Survey of Canada)
    • 22. Aldridge PNG
      • Recognized significant mineralization potential in one of the most prospective areas of PNG between Porgera and Ok Tedi.
      • Acquired a 338 sq. km license awarded in Feb 2009. Received 3 requests from majors to JV the property before any results published.
      • Identified two highly interesting mag anomalies similar to Porgera. AGM completed a 4 week mapping and sampling campaign that outlined a Cu-Au system within a 10 km alteration footprint, then followed up with further sampling.
      • Discovered a very large Cu-Au porphyry & skarn system informally called ‘MAG1’. The sampling results here were far above our expectations with two rock samples grading between 23% - 35% Cu with an average of 60 g/t Au and 238 g/t Ag; 13 samples grading from 1.0% - 12.9% Cu with an average of 0.44 g/t Au and 3.8 g/t Ag; 28 samples grading from 0.3% - 1.0% Cu with an average of 0.39 g/t Au and 3.8 g/t Ag. Also had one sample grade 9.1% zinc.
