Corporate Presentation

  1. 1. Corporate Presentation Spring 20121
  2. 2. Forward Looking Statements Some of the statements contained in this presentation are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not historical facts and are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties beyond the Companys control, including, but not exclusively, statements regarding potential mineralization, exploration results, completion of work program and studies, and future plans and objectives of the Company. Resource exploration, development and operations are highly speculative, characterized by a number of significant risks, which even a combination of careful evaluation, experience and knowledge may not eliminate, including, among other things, unprofitable efforts resulting not only from the failure to discover mineral resources but from finding mineral deposits which, though present, are insufficient in quantity and quality to return a profit from production. Qualified Person: Mr Stephen R Maynard, M.S., C.P.G., has acted as the qualified person as defined in National Instrument 43-101 for this disclosure and supervised the preparation of the technical information in this release.2

  10. 10. The 15 Million Ounce “Guerrero Gold Belt” • The Guerrero Gold Belt is becoming a world class district for gold mineral exploration with over 15 million ounces discovered in the last two decades within a 60 km trend. • Geological characteristics of an emerging mining district – BIG: Not one off deposits but multiple deposits that are unified by common geological characteristics – SYSTEMATIC: Processes that formed the deposits are part of the same geological system • If Big and Systematic, then you have a reasonable predictability and higher probability of discovery10
  11. 11. Major Mines & Deposits in “GGB” Projects: • Corazonada • Jackie • El Porfido • Vuelcos del Destino Projects cover Intrusive complexes similar to current GGB Deposits Belt has very good infrastructure with roads, electricity, populated cities.11
