    • Unlocking Undiscovered Mineral Endowment in East Africa Using a Conjunction of Scientific Targeting and Global Exploration Expertise Dr Joas Kabete Exploration Director Makwini Resources Ltd
    • REGIONAL GEOLOGY: SHOWING MNERAL RIGHTS GEOLOGICAL MAP LACK INSIGHT TO: . CRUSTAL COMPONENTS • LITHOTECTONIC BOUNDARIES • EVOLUTION HISTORIES • AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP TO MIENERAL DEPOSITS
    • BUILDING A SUCCESSFUL EXPLORATION COMPANY • • Who are we… • Makwini is Tanzanian exploration company made up of good people Who are These Good People • Team of explorationists with extensive experience in exploration, drilling, business development and financial management. • Very Good Area Selection and exploration methods • Advances in understanding of geology, tectonic and deposit setting • Driven by scale when targeting their projects and prospects • Aware of modern exploration techniques and analytical methods • Use local experienced geologists, field technicians, field attendants • Can propose cost-effective drilling techniques • They have very good field experience behind them • Many have worked with well-respected geologists/managers • Bulyanhulu-BHP Nickel-Base metals, Ashanti and AngloGold Ashanti • Guided by mentors such as Prof. Groves and Prof. Abdul Mruma.

    • REGIONAL GOLD EXPLORATION NEWLY DEFINED BELTS, CENTRAL TANZANIA REGION
    • KITUNDA BLOCK: regional geology PL 6166/2009 PL 5090/2008 PL 81372012
    • KITUNDA GOLD PROJECTS: • • • • • PROJECT GENERATION APPROACH: – Grassroots projects from underexplored greenstone belts, Kitunda-Rungwa District, Dodoman System Goldfields, Central Tanzania Region PROJECTS: – Kitunda Hills (PL 5090/2008); Cheyo (PL 8137/2012); Kitunda North (6166/2009). TARGET: – High-grade (> 5 g/t Au) gold-mineralised shear zones from Cheyo and Kitunda Prospects. WORK COMPLETED and RESULTS – Ashanti in 2003 outlined >1.2km x 400m of >20-45-ppb Au in soil anomalies – Infill and step out soil sampling by Makwini – NITON XRF As-Cu-Fe anomalies over >6km X 3km block – Geology and soil sampling defined NW-SE- trending corridors FUTURE WORK – Drill targets: >1200m of exploratory DDH @ 200m planned – Drill targets: >5200m of RC sampling to test coincidental Au-As and NITON XRF As-CuFe
    • KITUNDA GOLD PROJECTS: prospective sub-areas CHEYO KITUNDA
    • KITUNDA GOLD PROJECT: 2013 gold rush on 2003 Ashanti soil anomalies
    • REGIONAL GOLD EXPLORATION NEWLY DEFINED BELTS, PROTEROZOIC REGIONS OF EASTERN TANZANIA
    • MKURUMU-MAGAMBA PROVINCE: Projects Location Western Camps Eastern Camps
    • MKURUMU-MAGAMBA TERRANE: GEOLOGY MKATA KONGWA MKURUMU SW TAMOTA
    • MKURUMU-MAGAMBA PROVINCE • PROJECT: Mkurumu SW (PL 6902/2011); 119.5 km2 100% Makwini Resources • TARGET : Orogenic gold deposits in sulphidic-quartz-silicate veins in mildly reworked protoNeo-archean mafic-felsic gneisses. • GEOLOGY – Largely covered by regolith cover, bedrock comprising E-W-trending mafic amphibolite, ortho and para-gneisses – Mildly overprinted by NW-SE-trending tectonothermal events – Broken down into compartments along N-S-trending faults • EXPLORATION WORK COMPLETED AND RESULTS – 2003 Kabete: >8km x 150-600m of 100-720ppb Au in soil anomalies at Mkurumu – Motivated AETL to JV with Mafulira Village Mining Company (MVMC). – Drilling only 2700m DD….not enough to test potential – MAKWINI: NITON XRF As-Fe-Cu anomalies coincident with AETL’s Au-As anomalies – MAKWINI: auger soil sampling =~9kmX1.5km NITON XRF As-Fe-Cu in soil anomalies. – Samples from this block submitted to SGS for Au assaying.

    • CONCLUDING REMARKS Makwini, local Tanzania company. Technically equipped with explorationists ambitious to discover mineral deposits: • under-explored/un-explored greenstone belts, Central Tanzania Region (Kitunda Project) • less-explored belts in the Proterozoic Regions of NW and eastern Tanzania: • • Lusahunga, Kongwa, Mkurumu SW, Tamota, Mkata and Handeni East projects) Projects generated by in-house specialists (Project Generation exercises) and field assessment of projects submitted by vendors. This work is conducted through their consultant Mazoka Resources (Pty) Ltd; • Projects include under-cover belts and camps seen limited exploration in the goldendowed Lake Victoria Region (e.g. NW-extension of the ~800k Au Shanta • GL Jossue Ltd and Kage Minerals (Singida south project) • SE-extension of Kukuluma-Matandani Camp, Biharamulo-Geita District • Kage Minerals MAKWINI INVITES SERIOUS INVESTORS TO FARM IN INTO THESE GRASSROOTS TO EXPLORATORY PROSPECTIVE AND DISCOVERY PRONE PROJECTS THE MINISTRY OF ENRRGY AND MINERALS THROUGH THE GEOLOGICAL SURVEY OF TANZANIA PROVIDES HIGH-LEVEL TECHNICAL SUPPORT ENVIRONMENT REQUIRED FOR NEW DISCOVERIES THANK YOU AND KARIBU SANA TANZANIA
