Bagged and Shipped 6. Sold & applied to crops Zero en ironmental impact as no chemical environmental process involved. 100% Natural. 6
  7. 7. Argentina – Extraction, Distribution & SalesFertilizer: Calcium Sulphate (“Agricultural Gypsum”) Estela Cecilia  Property consists of 1,406 hectares in the province of Santiago del Estero, two hours North of Buenos Aires  Next to the well known “Nucleus Agriculture Zones”  Santiago del Estero is a major soybean production region in Argentina with 2.8 million g hectares in production representing 21% of the total province surface area 7
  8. 8. The Product – Calcium sulphate (CaSO4) Used as a fertilizer, Calcium sulphate is a soft sulphate mineral composed of calcium sulphate dihydrate (CaSO4•2H2O) which is O), extremely rich in sulphur and calcium When dissolved in water, it becomes calcium ions (Ca2+) and sulphate-sulfur ions (SO42-). Both of these ions are required nutrients for plants Calcium sulphate also plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining good chemical balance in soil, water and plants; specifically helps with healthy root development and e ps ea y oo de e op e a d ultimately increases the yield from crops 8
  9. 9. Calcium Sulphate (CaSO4) as fertilizer“Agricultural Gypsum” Used as a fertilizer, Calcium Root penetration in Soil Sulphate is a soft sulphate mineral composed of calcium sulphate Without Calcium Sulphate With Calcium Sulphate dihydrate (CaSO4•2H2O) When dissolved in water, it becomes calcium ions (Ca2+) and sulphate-sulphur ions (SO42-). Both of these ions are required nutrients for plants Calcium Sulphate plays a vital role in establishing and maintaining Data Source: ANDA (Brazilian National Fertilizer Association). Technical report No.4 (2000). Depth in Association) No 4 (2000) good chemical balance in soil, (cm). water and plants; specifically Source: INTA (Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia Agropecuaria - National Agricultural Technology Institute) - corrects soil damage and replenishes nutrients, ultimately ep e s es u e s, u a ey increasing the yield from crops 9
  10. 10. New Fertilizer ModelNPK(S)Conventional model: Nitrogen + Phosphorus + Potassium (NPK) The basic NPK model now requires Sulphur (S) to solve the lack of this basic element, so that soils keep on presenting the desired yields especially in soy producing soil. The improved sustainable agricultural NPK(S) model: Nitrogen + Phosphorus + Potassium + Sulphur = NPK(S) 10
  11. 11. Key Investment Highlights Location– Guasayan, Santiago Del Estero, Argentina Property Size – 1,406 ha Extraction for profit – able to execute a full sales cycle Goal – Be a major Supplier of Calcium sulphate (CaSO4) to the South American fertilizer market Term on Property – PAF has secured mining rights for 20 years with the right to extend for another 20 years Asset Growth – Currently negotiating to acquire other relevant properties Cash investment to date - over $4m 11
  12. 12. Information from NI 43-101 43-Technical Report* Land Ownership details - The Estela-Cecilia calcium sulphate Property is owned by and registered to Mr. Hector Eusebio Ibañez and is subject to a mining lease Mr agreement between Mr. Ibañez and Pan American Fertilizer. The agreement calls for PAF to pay Mr. Ibañez a 13 percent net profit royalty (NPI), at a minimum of USD $6 per ton of calcium sulphate sold. The lease is valid for 20 years, starting December 21, 2010 with an option to renew for an additional 20 years Historical work - limited amount of historical exploration work carried out by previous operators Geology - Property contains at least two or more one meter thick calcium sulphate beds with average analytical grades ranging from 90.5 to 98.2 percent calcium sulphate (CaSO4 2H2O) at least nineteen areas where calcium sulphate beds are 2H2O). likely exposed at surface or covered by thin vegetation on the Property Proposed Exploration program - total of 5 kilometers of road cut, 100 pits, approximately 200,000 cubic meters of earth removal ( 5 areas of 200 meters by 200 meters) and 250 test samples for calcium sulphate analysis. The program would last for a period of approximately 3 months at a cost of CDN $320,000  The goal of an exploration plan is to expose, sample and analyze new calcium sulphate outcrop along a pre-determined grid or along sample points with enough density to satisfy criteria for a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate *Study titled: “ESTELA-CECILIA GYPSUM PROPERTY” completed on March 15, 2012 by Jim Cuttle, B.Sc., P.Geo.

  16. 16. Market DemandCalcium Sulphate The largest markets in South America include Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia totaling 300 million ha of arable farmland  The location of the nucleus agricultural zones of each country are provided by the maps below Standard application for fertilizer per ha is 1 - 2 tonnes Calcium Sulphate per year  Standard application for soil remediation per ha is 8 – 10 t tonnes C l i Calcium S l h t per year Sulphate  Potential demand for Calcium Sulphate of over 600 million tonnes BOLIVIA URUGUAY 16
  17. 17. Market Demand The largest markets in South America include Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay The combined total arable farmland of these 4 countries is in excess of 300 million ha. Standard application for fertilizer per ha is 1 - 2 tonnes Calcium sulphate per year Standard application for soil remediation per ha is 8 – 10 tonnes Calcium sulphate per year Potential demand for Calcium sulphate of over 600 million tonnes per year Argentina has banned deforestation for the purpose of agriculture. Argentina government has recently offered incentives to increase per hectare yield. 17
  18. 18. Global Soybean Market  Argentina and Brazil together account for 46% of the global soybean p production  Soybean Farming requires more Calcium sulphate as Soy plants absorb 3x more Sulfur from the soil when they g y grow than other crops  Focus on the mono-culture of soybean leads to significant demand for calcium g sulphate to replenish the sulphur content in farmlands  PAF’s calcium sulphate assets are located in northern Argentina, where there is strong local demand for calcium sulphate for soybean productionSource: USDA 18
