Forward-looking statements relate to future events or future performance and reflect Ximen Mining Corps management's expectations or beliefs regarding future events and include, but are not limited to, statements with respect completion of the private placement and related matters.
In certain cases, forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as "plans", "expects" or "does not expect", "is expected", "budget", "scheduled", "estimates", "forecasts", "intends", "anticipates" or "does not anticipate", or "believes", or variations of such words and phrases or statements that certain actions, events or results "may", "could", "would", "might" or "will be taken", "occur" or "be achieved" or the negative of these terms or comparable terminology. By their very nature forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of Ximen Mining Corps to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, risks related to actual results of current exploration activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; future prices of resources; possible variations in ore reserves, grade or recovery rates; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities; as well as those factors detailed from time to time in Ximen Mining Corp’s interim and annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis of those statements, all of which are filed and available for review on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Although Ximen Mining Corp has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual actions, events or results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause actions, events or results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. There can be no assurance that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Accordingly, readers should not place undue reliance on forward looking statements.
BRITISH COLUMBIA DISTRICT
The B.C. government will extend a $10-million tax credit program for the province's mining industry in an attempt to attract investment.
Clark's $300-million jobs plan, which she introduced last week after a province wide tour, includes promises of eight new B.C. mines by 2015 and nine upgrades to existing mining operations.
“In our province there is absolutely no doubt that the resource industry is the foundation of our prosperity,”
Premier Christy Clark

BRETT GOLD PROJECT
The original Portal Adit was driven by Alex McPhjearson and Al Beaton, who are part of the Ximen mining team.
RC88-11, which was drilled down dip on the Main Shear Zone intersected 69.6 gms Au/tonne (2.03 oz Au/ton) over an interval of 71.65 meters (235 feet). Which was three high grade pods averaged out.
Drill for structure and drift for grade.
Surface Bulk Sample 291 Tonnes ,The values recovered by the Cominco smelter at Trail avg 27.74 gms Au/tonne and 63.7 gms Ag /tonne. Coarse gold at surface was over 1oz.
Bonanza Detailed Area
Insufficient drilling has been done on these to define the extent of these mineralized zones or shoots in addition to the three gold bearing shear zones, several other shear zones were observed on surface. It would appear that these northwest trending shears are located roughly 50 to 60 meters apart and can be followed along strike for at least 1200 meters and occur over at least 1 kilometer in an east west direction. Indicating the possibility of at least 15 to 20 of these structures.

BRETT PROJECT ADVANTAGES
3 Styles of Mineralization
1.Veins and breccia veins
2.Disseminated mineralization in silicified tuffs
3.Shear zones with vein remnants and vein fragments
High-grade mineralization may withstand trucking costs to custom milling operation – means quicker to permit, plus quicker and lower cost to get producing than if a mill is needed.
Evidence of widespread alteration - i.e. large hydrothermal system suggests potential for a large deposit
Low sulfide mineralization - means reduced environmental concerns
“Simple” mineralogy - means simple metallurgy and good gold recovery (low cost processing)
Recent logging - means better access and rock exposure – hasn’t been prospected since logging done.
Extensive data from past exploration - good database of information, detailed analysis and interpretation is revealing multiple targets for follow-up, potential for new discoveries
Extent of previous exploration work and logging - means this is not “pristine wilderness”. May minimize environmental concerns during future permitting and project advancement.
