  1. 1. Flying Bridge Mining & Exploration Inc Presents<br />Cruces de Caceres<br />A Golden Opportunity<br />
  2. 2. GOLD<br />History<br />There are several reasons why GOLD has created fascination over mankind since primitive ages. Maybe is because of its shine or its various applications that it has been adored, and used as exchange. Its was the material that embellished faces and enlightened temples, used by goldsmiths, that for centuries have been part of diferent cultures, in places so apart with each other, such as Cuzco, El Cairo or Bangkok. <br />When we look at modern times, we see that GOLD has been the base of the economic development of civilization, established as the standard of value and the best wealth holder in human history.<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />
  3. 3. GOLD<br />World Market<br />The gold world market moves around 4.000 tons a year: World minig production with 2.500 t/year, central banks 500 t/year, companies 200 t/year and recycling around 800 t/year. <br />Jewellery has the biggest demand for GOLD, it consumes 2.700 t/year. Besides, there is a great demand for industrial applications, dentistry, treasury and investment.<br />The bull market that started in 2003 has not reached its full potential yet, that’s why even if <br />prices don’t break the resistance level of US$1.300/oz in the near future, we still think that <br />GOLD has the best to come .<br />Between october 2008 and september 2010 gold price has gone from U$ 680/oz to almost U$1.300/oz.<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />
  4. 4. GOLD<br />The value of gold is estimated from the quantity of this metal, inside the total mass, in the alloy that composes a piece. For example: 18k means that from 24 fractions (100%) 18 are gold and 6 of other metals; it is to say 75% of concentration or 750 parts of gold per thousand parts.<br />Historic Prices<br />Quality of Gold<br />PURITY<br />Term used in jewellery. One karat represents 1/24 (4,167%).<br />FINENESS<br />Term used in metallurgy and industrial applications. One part represents 1/1000 (0,10 %). <br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />
  5. 5. GOLD<br />Gold is a metallic rare element with a point of merge of 1.064 º C and a point of boiling of 2.808 º C. Its chemical symbol - Au - is an abbreviation of the Latin word "Aurum", which literally means “dawn that shines intensely".<br />It seems that the word gold comes from a derivation of "yellow", used for the Indo-European civilizations, reflecting one of the most obvious properties of the gold. This is reflected in the similarities of the word in several languages: Gold (English), (German) Gold, (Danish) Guld, (Dutch) Gulden, Goud (afrikaaner), (Norwegian) Gull and (Finnish) Kulta.<br />The last estimations, 2001, indicated that all the exploited and available gold on the terrestrial surface was coming to 145.000 tons<br />From ancient times, for commercial operations in the Mediterranean Sea and the Middle East, the carat began to be in use as a measure of the purity of the auriferous alloys.<br />The carat was originally a unit of weight based on the seed of the carob-tree, and used by the former merchants of Middle East. The Romans, were using the name Siliqua Graeca (Keration in Greek; Qirat in Arab; and now carat in the modern times) to name the above mentioned seed. The carat is still used to weight the precious stones or gems (a carat is the equivalent to approximately 200 grams).<br />Flying Bridge Mining<br /> Copyright © 2010. <br />
  6. 6. COLOMBIA<br />Cruces de Caceres<br />Mining Potential yet to be Discovered<br />
  7. 7. Mining Country<br />The mining Colombian industry is one of the most dynamic and promissory sectors of the country, since in only one year the investments have reached 2.000 million dollars and the short term trend do not seem to end.<br />Antioquia Region<br />The potential of Colombia has been confirmed by a recent report of the Fraser Institute in which Colombia appears as the country of Latin America with the second major mining potential of the region after Brazil, if the problems for the exploitation were corrected. This qualification confirmed what the specialists already knew … Colombia is today one of the borders of opportunity in the mining business worldwide<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />
  8. 8. Annual Production in the Region of Antioquia<br />Antioquia represents 30% of the mining licenses in Colombia.<br />Gold represents 5% of Colombian exports and Antioquia produces 75% of the Colombian production. <br />Antioquia has the biggest gold production in the country..<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />

  15. 15. BAJO CAUCA ANTIOQUEÑO<br />Mina <br />CRUCES DE CACERES<br />Map<br />Access to the Site<br />Anyone can go by land, water or air.<br /> It is necessary to to take the Coast Highway from Medellin, up to Caceres. There it is necessary to take the road to Zaragoza and in the KM 32, do a detour in the southern part.<br /> Also it is possible to take the road up to Zaragoza from Medellin, via Segovia. Then take a craft in the Rio Nechí, up to the Corregimiento of El Pato. From there it is necessary to go to the Fertile plaines of Segovia and then cross the Natural Reservation Bajo Cauca - Nechí up to the mine.<br /> Finally, it is possible to take a helicopter and land directly in the mine, since there exists sufficient clear spots in the area of concession.<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />

  18. 18. Mining SiteConditions<br />The prospectings in the low and medium parts will have a network of perforation with percussion drill of 4 " to 6 " of diameter, the samplings will be taken every meter of perforation, up to coming to rock.<br /> The network of perforation will be of triangles with sides of 50 meters. The calculation will be of every triangle separately and then they will be divided equally to have a total result.<br />In the hillside there will be opened apiques of 2x2 meters and trenches of 1 meter of width or 1.5 meters by lengths of 10 or 15 meters. The samples will be taken every 2 meters in the trenches and normally to the direction of the banks and the floor. In the trenches the prospecting will be done by channels in the banks by width of 2 " and depth of 3 " or 4 ".<br /> The calculation will be given on the auriferous alluvium rejecting the material of descapote. The unit of measure for the calculation of reservations will be the milligram for m3.<br />Flying Bridge Mining Copyright © 2010. <br />
