Magellan Minerals Ltd. (TSX-V: MNM) is a well financed Canadian-based junior exploration company focused on mineral exploration and development in the state of Para in northern Brazil. The Company has interests in a number of properties in the Tapajos region which has a historic gold production estimated at 20-30Moz of gold. The Company has two advanced gold projects, Cuiu Cuiu and Coringa. A breakdown of the 43-101 compliant resource estimate numbers is below for a total of 1.7Moz. The total resource estimates from each of the properties thus far are as follows:

Cuiu Cuiu: 1.2Moz Inferred (31Mt @ 1.2g/t) + 0.1Moz Indicated (3.4MT @ 1.0g/t)
Coringa: 0.3Moz Indicated (1Mt @ 8.5g/t) + 0.1Moz Inferred (0.3Mt @ 9.3g/t)

    • 3. Why Invest in Magellan?
        • Promising and Exciting Region : the Tapajos is the World’s third largest placer gold province, estimated to have produced 20-30 Moz from streams between 1978 and 1995 from artisanal, garimpeiro-type miners
        • Experienced Management: 150+ years of mining experience, track record for discovery. Management is previously responsible for discovery of the nearby Tocantinzinho deposit (2.5Moz), now owned by Eldorado Gold
        • Projects: two organic, grass roots gold discoveries so far - and building…
            • Cuiu Cuiu – 1.3Moz gold resource (100,000oz indic + 1.2Moz inf), drilling with 3 rigs
            • Coringa – 370,000 oz gold resource (270,000oz indic + 100,000oz inf), drilling with 2 rigs
        • Key Stakeholders: Newmont Mining owns 2.5%; Kinross owns 1%
        • Strong Cash Position: $20.5 M in treasury – Q2, 2011

    • 5. The Tapajos : World’s third largest placer gold belt
      • Site of the world’s largest ever gold rush from 1970’s to 1990’s
      • Largest alluvial gold province in Brazil, third largest alluvial gold province in world – previous production from streams estimated at 20-30 Moz of gold
      • Geology is similar to other prolific gold belts (e.g. Eastern Canada, Western Australia). World-class potential
      • Under-explored province. One mid-size deposit discovered so far: Tocantinzinho (2.5 Moz)
      • Kinross, Eldorado and Newmont are active. Eldorado acquired Tocantinzinho for $122M during mid 2010. Eldorado also spent $5M on a 27% stake in Serabi Mining in 2010
    • 6. Key land position in competitive belt
    • 7. Cuiú Cuiú’s Relation to Tocantinzinho
      • Cuiú Cuiú is one of the two largest historic garimpeiro gold producers in the Tapajós*
      • Tocantinzinho deposit is 1.5 km (2.5Moz resource) long and produced an est. 200,000oz of gold from artisanal surface workings **
      • Cuiú Cuiú is 12 km long and 25 km NW of Tocantinzinho and produced 2Moz from streams
      • Eldorado’s PFS complete with an 11.8% IRR. A FS is the next step. Will make a construction decision by the end of 2011

Central SE-NW section through Central Typical mineralized interval Central zone – hole CC-55-10, 2.15g/t Au * Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. Please note that all figures have been rounded to reflect their appropriate level of accuracy. * These resources are constrained by mineable shapes and cut-off grades to meet the requirement that resources must have reasonable prospects for economic extraction. The mineable shapes are either Lerch-Grossman pits or conceptual underground stopes. Resources falling within the pits are reported at cut-off grades of 0.3 gpt Au for fresh rock or 0.4 gpt Au for saprolite. Stope shapes only include blocks above a cut-off grade of 1.3 gpt Au. The cut-off grades consider a gold price of $1,250 per ounce and metallurgical recoveries of 91% for fresh rock and 66% for saprolite.
