Corporate Overview

  1. 1. About Lions Gate Metals Lions Gate Metals exists to create wealth for shareholders by taking full advantage of the strong global demand for metals. Lions Gate Metals owns substantial copper and molybdenum projects located in British Columbia – a stable, well-developed jurisdiction. The management team understands the complex dynamics of the mining industry and has created a highly attractive corporate structure to TSX Venture Exchange LGM maximize success. Frankfurt Exchange A1DN Issued & Outstanding 10,550,051 Mission Statement Treasury (approx.) $2,700,000 “To build a large cap mining company based on the strength of our *as of September 9th, 2008 assets by executing an aggressive MnA strategy, thereby positioning Lions Gate Metals as a leader in the global copper market” plan. Arni also serves as a director of Mega Uranium Ltd., Galena Capital Corp., and Sinchao Metals Corp. Management team Darren Tindale - Director Damien Reynolds - Chairman & Director Darren is currently progressing through the CGA program and has obtained experience in both public practice and industry.

Mark is proficient Craig Noordman at analyzing businesses and the markets. He has a proven track record at gathering and growing assets from the ground up. He has been investing in and raising funds for the junior mining and energy Properties sector for a number of years so a move to managing and directing was a natural progression. Laurence (Laurie) Thomson – VP Operations The Poplar Project Laurie has over 25 years of experience in the mining industry and in The advanced Poplar Copper-Moly Project is wholly-owned by Lions international minerals product trading. He is a graduate geologist Gate Minerals. Poplar is a large porphyry-style deposit, located (University of British Columbia – Honours) with a career path in 150 kilometres south of Smithers, BC. The producing Huckleberry minerals and metals marketing; first with a senior Japanese trading copper-moly mine is 40 kilometres from the Poplar Project, and company, then with Placer Dome and then BHP Minerals (now, BHP- infrastructure and logistics are excellent. Billiton). Laurie brings with him an extensive senior management Considerable exploration has been completed on Poplar, including experience and network in a wide range of mineral and metal 86 historical drill holes totalling 19,200 metres. The main Poplar commodities, along with his technical knowledge and international zone has been historically estimated as 116 million tonnes, grading expertise. 0.32% copper, 0.1 grams per tonne gold and 0.0095 molybdenum. Arni Johannson - Director In 2005, 15 holes were drilled by Lions Gate Metals predecessor. Arni has 20 years of experience in the Canadian capital markets.

The Poplar porphyry deposit lies within the strongly mineralized Intermontane Belt east of the coast Crystalline belt which is The Kelly Creek Project underlain principally by Mesozoic volcanic and sedimentary rocks. These rocks are cut by numerous porphyritic intrusives of Jurassic, The Kelly Creek Copper-Silver Project is wholly-owned by Lions Gate Cretaceous and early Tertiary age, which host several significant Metals. Located 30 kilometres west of Terrace, BC, Kelly Creek has porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum deposits, such as Huckleberry, had considerable historical exploration and hosts high grades of Whiting Creek, Berg, Ox Lake and others. both copper and silver. The “red bed copper” style of mineralization has been successfully mined in the past and Kelly Creek represents The Poplar copper-molybdenum deposit is centred on a differentiated a very attractive advanced exploration target. calc-alkaline stock of Late Cretaceous age intruded into volcanic and sedimentary rocks of the Hazelton Group of Jurassic age.
