PROXY STATEMENT
2009 ANNUAL MEETING OF STOCKHOLDERS
TO BE HELD ON AUGUST [__], 2009
 
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THESE PROXY MATERIALS AND VOTING
 
Why am I receiving these materials?
 
Universal Energy Corp. (“we”, “Universal” or the “Company”) sent you this proxy statement and the enclosed proxy card because our Board of Directors (the “Board”) is soliciting your proxy to vote at a 2009 Annual Stockholder Meeting to be held on August [___], 2009 at [____] a.m., local time, at 614 Canal Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70130.  You are invited to attend the annual meeting to vote in person on the proposal described in this proxy statement. However, you do not need to attend the annual meeting to vote your shares. Instead, you may simply complete, sign, date and return the enclosed proxy card to indicate your vote with respect to each of the proposals described in this proxy statement.
 
The SEC has adopted rules that permit companies and intermediaries (e.g., brokers) to satisfy the delivery requirements for proxy statements with respect to two or more stockholders sharing the same address by delivering a single proxy statement addressed to those stockholders. This process, which is commonly referred to as “householding,” potentially means extra convenience for stockholders and cost savings for companies.
 
In connection with the annual meeting, a number of brokers with account holders who are stockholders of the Company will be “householding” our proxy materials. A single proxy statement will be delivered to multiple stockholders sharing an address unless contrary instructions have been received from the affected stockholders. Once you have received notice from your broker that they will be “householding” communications to your address, “householding” will continue until you are notified otherwise or until you revoke your consent. If, at any time, you no longer wish to participate in “householding” and would prefer to receive a separate proxy statement, please notify your broker or contact our Secretary (Attn: Dyron M. Watford, Universal Energy Corp., 30 Skyline Drive, Lake Mary, Florida 32746). Stockholders who currently receive multiple copies of the proxy statement at their address and would like to request “householding” of their communications should contact their broker.
 
We intend to mail this proxy statement and accompanying proxy card on or about July [____], 2009 to all stockholders entitled to vote at the annual meeting and request that all stockholders voting by proxy return their completed proxy cards to us by no later than August [__], 2009.
 
What am I voting on?
 
There is one matter scheduled for a vote at the annual meeting:
 
 
·
Proposal No. 1: To elect two (2) individuals to serve on the Board for a term of one year or until their successors are duly elected and qualified; and
 
·
Proposal No. 2:  To approve an amendment to the amended Articles of Incorporation to increase the authorized common shares to 100,000,000,000.
 
Each proposal, as well as the recommendation of the Board with respect to the proposal, is described in greater detail elsewhere in this proxy statement.
 
Who can vote at the annual meeting?
 
Only stockholders of record at the close of business on July 30, 2009 will be entitled to vote at the annual meeting. On this record date, there were 6,458,840,784 shares of common stock outstanding and entitled to vote.
 
Am I a stockholder of record for purposes of the annual meeting?
 
If, on July 30, 2009, your shares were registered directly in your name with our transfer agent, Madison Stock Transfer, Inc., then you are a stockholder of record for purposes of the annual meeting.
 
1

 
What if my shares are held in an account at a brokerage firm, bank or dealer?
 
If, on July 30, 2009, your shares were held in an account at a brokerage firm, bank, dealer, or other similar organization, then you are the beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and these proxy materials are being forwarded to you by that organization. The organization holding your account is considered the stockholder of record for purposes of voting at the annual meeting. As a beneficial owner, you have the right to direct that organization on how to vote the shares in your account.
 
How do I vote?

 
·
Vote By Internet: Visit the Web site noted on your proxy card to vote via the Internet

 
·
Vote By Mail:  Sign and date the proxy card you receive and return it in the enclosed stamped, self-addressed envelope.

 
·
Vote By Telephone:  If you are a stockholder of record (that is, if you hold your stock in your own name), you may vote by telephone by following the instructions on your proxy card.  The telephone number is toll-free, so voting by telephone is at no cost to you.  If you vote by telephone, you do not need to return your proxy card.

 
·
Vote in Person:  Sign and date the proxy you receive and return it in person at the annual meeting.

If your shares are held in the name of a bank, broker or other holder of record (i.e., in “street name”), you will receive instructions from the holder of record that you must follow in order for your shares to be voted.  Telephone and Internet voting will be offered to stockholders owning shares through most banks and brokers.
 
How are votes counted?
 
Votes will be counted by the inspector of election appointed for the annual meeting, who will separately count “for” and (with respect to proposals other than the election of directors) “against” votes, abstentions and “broker non-votes”. A “broker non-vote” occurs when a stockholder of record, such as a broker, holding shares for a beneficial owner does not vote on a particular item because that stockholder of record does not have discretionary voting power with respect to that item and has not received voting instructions from the beneficial owner. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the presence or absence of a quorum but will not be counted towards the affirmative vote total for any proposal.
 
How many votes are needed to approve the proposal?
 
The number of votes needed to approve the proposal is as follows:
 
 
·
Proposal No. 1: The election of each director contemplated by Proposal No. 1 required that requires that the number of shares voted “FOR” a director nominee must exceed the number of votes cast “AGAINST” that nominee.  Accordingly, abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect on the outcome of the vote.
 
 
·
Proposal No. 2: To be approved, Proposal No. 2 must receive a “for” vote from the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock as of the record date and entitled to vote is required.  Abstentions will have the same effect as “against” votes, and broker non-votes will have no effect.

How many votes do I have?
 
On each matter to be voted upon, you have one vote for each share of our common stock that you owned as of July 30, 2009.
 
 
2

 
 
What is the quorum requirement?
 
A quorum of stockholders is necessary to hold a valid meeting. A quorum will be present if at least a majority of the outstanding shares are present at the meeting or represented by proxy. On the record date, there were 6,458,840,784 shares outstanding and entitled to vote. Accordingly, 3,229,420,393 shares must be present at the meeting or represented by proxy in order to establish a proper quorum to enable us to conduct a vote on each of the proposals at the annual meeting.
 
Your shares will be counted towards the quorum only if you submit a valid proxy or vote in person at the annual meeting. Abstentions and broker non-votes will be counted towards the quorum requirement. If there is no quorum, a majority of the votes present at the meeting or represented by proxy may adjourn the meeting to another date.
 
What does it mean if I receive more than one proxy card?
 
If you receive more than one proxy card, then your shares are registered in more than one name or are registered in different accounts. Please complete, sign and return each proxy card to ensure that all of your shares are voted at the annual meeting.
 
What if I return a proxy card but do not make specific choices?
 
If you return a signed and dated proxy card without marking any voting selections, all of your shares will be voted “for” the election of the nominees for director and “for” the other proposals described in this proxy statement. If any other matter is properly presented at the meeting, your proxy (one of the individuals named on your proxy card) will vote your shares using his best judgment.
 
Can I change my vote after submitting my proxy?
 
You can change your vote with respect to any proposal by revoking your proxy at any time prior to the commencement of voting with respect to that proposal at the annual meeting. You may revoke your proxy in any one of two ways:
 
 
·
You may submit another properly completed proxy card with a later date. Please note that we request that all stockholders voting by proxy return their completed proxy cards to us by no later than August [__], 2009.
 
·
You may send a written notice that you are revoking your proxy to our CFO (Attn: Dyron M. Watford, Universal Energy Corp., 30 Skyline Drive, Lake Mary, Florida 32746). To properly revoke your proxy via written notice, this notice must be received by our Secretary by no later than the close of business on [______], August [___], 2009.
 
You may attend the annual meeting and vote in person. Bear in mind that simply attending the meeting will not, by itself, revoke your proxy. In addition, please recall that if you are a beneficial owner of shares held in “street name” and wish to vote in person at the annual meeting, you must obtain a valid proxy from the organization holding your account and present it to the inspector of elections at the annual meeting.
 
Following the commencement of voting with respect to each proposal, you may not revoke your proxy or otherwise change your vote with respect to each such proposal.

How can I find out the results of the voting at the annual meeting?
 
Preliminary voting results will be announced at the annual meeting. Final voting results will be published in our quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of fiscal year 2009, which ends September 30, 2009.
 
Who is paying for this proxy solicitation?
 
We will pay for the entire cost of soliciting proxies. In addition to these mailed proxy materials, our directors and employees may also solicit proxies in person, by telephone or by other means of communication. Directors and employees will not be paid any additional compensation for soliciting proxies. We may also reimburse brokerage firms, banks and other agents for the cost of forwarding proxy materials to beneficial owners.

Vote Required; Board Recommendation
 
The Board has nominated two directors, Messrs. Watford and Raley, for election at the annual meeting. The nominees for director will be elected by a plurality of “for” votes properly cast in person or by proxy by the holders of common stock. All shares represented by the proxies will be voted “for” the election to the Board of the nominee unless authority to vote for such nominee has been withheld in the proxy. Although the nominees have consented to serve as a director if elected, and the Board has no reason to believe that such nominees will be unable to serve as a director, if any such nominee withdraws or otherwise becomes unavailable to serve, shares represented by the proxies will be voted “for” any substitute nominee designated by the Board. Abstentions and broker non-votes will have no effect. The Board recommends that you vote all of your shares “for” the election to the Board of the nominee described in this Proposal No. 1.

PROPOSAL NO. 2 - APPROVAL OF AN AMENDMENT TO THE COMPANY’S AMENDED
CERTIFICATE OF INCORPORATION
 
The Board has approved, and is recommending to the stockholders for approval at the Annual Meeting, an amendment to our Amended Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 6,500,000 to 100,000,000,000 shares. The Board determined that this amendment is advisable and should be considered at the Annual Meeting.
 
The Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation, as currently in effect, provides that the Company’s authorized capital stock consists of 6,500,000,000 shares of common stock, $.0001 par value per share. Effective as of April 30, 2009, the Board unanimously approved an amendment to Article 4 of the Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares of common stock from 6,500,000,000 shares to 100,000,000,000 shares. In accordance with Delaware law, the proposed amendment to the Amended Certificate of Incorporation is subject to stockholder approval.
 
            In the event that stockholder approval of the proposed amendment is obtained, the Company expects to file a Certificate of Amendment to the Amended Certificate of Incorporation with the Delaware Secretary of State on or about the close of business on the date of the Annual Meeting.
 
Background
 
As previously reported, during the past eighteen months we completed several private placements in order to fund our exploration and development activities.

Our September 2007 Financing.  Pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated September 10, 2007 (the “September 2007 SPA”), we sold an aggregate principal amount of $5,110,294 of our Senior Secured Convertible 8% Debentures due August 30, 2009 (the “September 2007 Debentures”) convertible into common stock at a price of $0.80 per share, and related stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 6,387,868 shares of our common stock  at a price of $0.88 and 6,387,868 shares of our common stock at a price of $0.80 (collectively, the “September 2007 Warrants”).  We received aggregate proceeds of approximately $4,000,000 reflecting a 20% original issue discount to the 12 accredited investors who purchased the September 2007 Debentures and the September 2007 Warrants less a $280,000 placement commission.

Our November 2007 Financing.  Pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated November 29, 2007 (the “November 2007 SPA”), we sold an aggregate principal amount of $1,742,647 of our Junior Convertible 8% Debentures due October 31, 2009 (the “November 2007 Debentures”) convertible into common stock at a price of $0.80 per share, and related stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 2,178,309 shares of our common stock  at a price of $0.88  per share, 2,178,309 shares of our common stock  at a price of $0.80 per share, and 2,178,309 shares of our common stock  at a price of $1.00  per share (collectively, the “November 2007 Warrants”).  We received aggregate proceeds of approximately $1,350,000 reflecting a 20% original issue discount to the 7 accredited investors who purchased the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants less a $94,500 placement commission. The purchasers of the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants were also purchasers of the September 2007 Debentures and the September 2007 Warrants.

Our May 2008 Financing.  Pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated May 29, 2008 (the “May 2008 SPA”) we sold an aggregate principal amount of $1,006,618 of our Junior Convertible 8% Debentures due  May 31, 2010 (the “May 2008 Debentures”) convertible into common stock at a price of per share equal the lesser of (i) $0.25 (subject to resets and adjustments pursuant to the terms of this debenture and subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Company relating to the Company's securities or the securities of any Subsidiary of the Company, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events) (the "Fixed Conversion Price") or (ii) 80% of the average of the three (3) lowest Closing Bid Prices of the Common Stock over the twenty (20) trading day period ending on the trading day immediately preceding the applicable Conversion Date, and related stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 4,026,471 shares of our common stock  at a price of $0.25  per share (collectively, the “May 2008 Warrants”).  We received aggregate proceeds of approximately $770,000 reflecting a 20% original issue discount to the 13 accredited investors who purchased the May 2008 Debentures and the May 2008 Warrants less a $53,450 placement commission. The majority of purchasers of the May 2008 Debentures and the May 2008 Warrants were also purchasers of the September 2007 Debentures, the September 2007 Warrants, the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants.

Our October 2008 Financing.  Pursuant to a securities purchase agreement dated October 31, 2008 (the “October 2008 SPA”) we sold an aggregate principal amount of $777,000 of our Junior Convertible 8% Debentures due  September 30, 2010 (the “October 2008 Debentures”) convertible into common stock at a price of per share equal the lesser of (i) $0.25 (subject to resets and adjustments pursuant to the terms of this debenture and subject to equitable adjustments for stock splits, stock dividends or rights offerings by the Company relating to the Company's securities or the securities of any Subsidiary of the Company, combinations, recapitalization, reclassifications, extraordinary distributions and similar events) (the "Fixed Conversion Price") or (ii) 80% of the average of the three (3) lowest Closing Bid Prices of the Common Stock over the twenty (20) trading day period ending on the trading day immediately preceding the applicable Conversion Date, and related stock purchase warrants to purchase up to 3,108,824 shares of our common stock  at a price of $0.25  per share (collectively, the “October 2008 Warrants”).  We received aggregate proceeds of approximately $605,000 reflecting a 20% original issue discount to the accredited investors who purchased the October 2008 Debentures and the October 2008 Warrants. The majority of purchasers of the October 2008 Debentures and the October 2008 Warrants were also purchasers of the September 2007 Debentures, the September 2007 Warrants, the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants.

The terms of each of the September 2007 Debentures, September 2007 Warrants, the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants provided that their respective conversion or exercise price as the case may be, were to be reset in the event that we issued shares of our common stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for our common stock (other than certain permitted issuances) at an effective conversion price or exercise price lower than the than applicable conversion or exercise price of each of the September 2007 Debentures, September 2007 Warrants, the November 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Warrants.

Accordingly, the conversion price of each of the September 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Debentures was reset to a price equal to the lesser of (i) the Fixed Conversion Price or (ii) 80% of the average of the three (3) lowest Closing Bid Prices of the Common Stock over the twenty (20) trading day period ending on the trading day immediately preceding the applicable Conversion Date; and the exercise price of the September 2007 Warrants and the November 2007 Warrants were reset to $0.25 per share.

Amortization of the September 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 began monthly commencing on September 1, 2008 and November 1, 2008 respectively.  Subject to certain conditions, the amortization may be effected through cash payments, or at our option, through the issuance of shares of our common stock or some combination of cash and stock, based on a price per share equal to 80% of the lowest three (3) closing bid prices of the common stock over the 20 trading days immediately preceding the date of such payment. We cannot provide assurance that we will have sufficient cash available to satisfy the repurchase of the Notes entirely in cash.

Recent Conversions of the September 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Debentures.  At the time we completed each of the September 2007 Financing, the November 2007 Financing, the May 2008 Financing and the October 2008 Financing, our management believed that we had sufficient authorized and unissued shares available for issuance (at the then applicable conversion and exercise prices) upon (i) conversion of the September 2007 Debentures, the November 2007 Debentures, the May 2008 Debentures and the October 2008 Debentures (collectively, the “Debentures”) and (ii)  the September 2007 Warrants, the November 2007 Warrants, the May 2008 Warrants and the October 2008 Warrants (collectively, the “Warrants”).

Following the completion of the May 2008 Financing, certain holders of the September 2007 Debentures and the November 2007 Debentures began to convert portions of their respective debentures.  During the period from June 10, 2008 to February 2, 2009, the Company received conversion notices from our debenture holders as to $4,644,000 principal and interest amount of the September 2007 Debentures,  the November 2007 Debentures and the May 2008 Debentures.  We issued an aggregate of 6,345,251,000 shares of our common stock in connection with these conversions.

Under current rules and regulations promulgated by Securities and Exchange Commission and which became effective in February of 2008, holders of our outstanding debentures generally may convert and resell the shares received upon conversion if they have held their respective Debentures for a period of six months.

Due to the decline of the market price for our common stock following the closing of the May 2008 Financing we exhausted our authorized and unissued shares. Under the terms of the Debentures, we are required to hold a meeting of our stockholders for the purpose of increasing the number of authorized shares so as to have a sufficient number of shares reserved for issuance upon conversion of the Debentures or exercise of the Warrants. In connection with such meeting, we are required to use our best efforts in soliciting stockholder approval of such increase in authorized shares of Common Stock.

As of June 30, 2009, we have issued and outstanding an aggregate principal amount of $4,469,600 of convertible debentures; based upon currently applicable conversion price of $0.00016 per share on that day, approximately 27,935,000,000 shares will be required if the Debentures are converted in full; additional, 142,743,836 shares will be required in order to satisfy our obligations under the Warrants at the current exercise price of $0.25 per share.
 
The following table summarizes our currently issued and outstanding shares of common stock and the number of shares that we anticipate reserving for issuance upon approval of Proposal No. 2 by our stockholders:
 
Common Stock Currently Issued and Outstanding
    6,458,840,784  
         
Shares to be reserved for issuance (at current exercise and conversion prices):
       
Conversions of Existing Debentures (150% reserved per agreement)
    41,902,500,000  
Warrants
    142,743,836  
2006 Option Plan
    37,500,000  
         
Total number of shares to be reserved for issuance
    42,082,743,836  
         
Total number of shares authorized but unreserved
    51,458,415,380  
 
If our stockholders do not approve the increase in our authorized shares, the Debenture and Warrant holders could allege a default under the terms and conditions of Debentures and Warrants, which, if substantiated, would have a material adverse effect on our operations.
 
Accordingly, an increase in the number of shares of common stock authorized for issuance under the Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation is necessary to permit us to have additional shares available for issuance in furtherance of the Company’s business purposes, as more fully set forth below under “Reasons For and Effects Of the Proposal.”     
 
Unless deferred by the holders of the Senior Debentures, we are required to redeem the Senior Debentures on a monthly basis commencing on September 1, 2008, by payment, at our option, in cash or in shares of our common stock, one-twelfth of the aggregate original principal amount of the Senior Debentures or approximately $425,900 plus interest on the outstanding balance. Similarly, we are required to redeem the Junior Debentures on a monthly basis commencing on November 1, 2008, by payment, at our option, in cash or in shares of our common stock, one-twelfth of the aggregate original principal amount of the Junior Debentures or approximately $145,200 plus interest on the outstanding balance.

The Senior Debentures and the Junior Debentures are due and payable on September 1, 2009 and October 31, 2009, respectively, unless sooner converted into shares of our common stock. Any event of default could require the early repayment of the Debentures, including the accruing of interest on the outstanding principal balance of the Debentures if the default is not cured with the specified grace period. We anticipate that the full amount of the Debentures will be converted into shares of our common stock, in accordance with the terms of the Debentures; however no assurance can be provided that any amount of Debentures will be converted. If, prior to the maturity date, we are required to repay the Debentures in full, we would be required to use our limited working capital and raise additional funds. If we were unable to repay the notes when required, the Debenture holders could commence legal action against us to recover the amounts due. Any such action could require us to curtail or cease operations.
 
Reasons for and Effects of the Proposal
 
Due to the limited number of shares of common stock available to be issued, the Board has unanimously approved, and voted to recommend that the stockholders approve, an amendment to the Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation pursuant to which the number of shares of common stock which the Company would be authorized to issue would be increased from 6,500,000,000 shares to 100,000,000,000 shares.
 
The Board believes that an increase in authorized common stock would provide the Company with increased flexibility to issue and/or sell common stock from time to time at the discretion of the Board , and without further authorization by the stockholders, for one or more of the following business purposes: (i) in public or private offerings as a means of obtaining additional capital for the Company’s business; (ii) as part or all of the consideration required to be paid for the acquisition of ongoing businesses or other assets; (iii) to satisfy any current or future financial obligations of the Company; (iv) in connection with the exercise of options, warrants or rights, or the conversion of convertible securities that have been or may be issued by the Company; or (v) pursuant to any benefit, option or stock ownership plan or employment agreement.
 
 
7

 
 
The proposed increase in the number of authorized shares of common stock will not change the number of shares of common stock outstanding or the rights of the holders of such stock. Other than for the possibility of issuing new shares of common stock upon the exercise of outstanding stock options or warrants, the Company does not have any immediate plans, arrangements, commitments or understandings with respect to the issuance of any of the additional shares of common stock that would be authorized by the proposed amendment to the Amended Certificate of Incorporation. However, the Company anticipates that it will need to raise additional equity capital in the near future through the issuance of common stock or other securities that are convertible into, or otherwise grant the holder thereof the right to purchase, common stock.
 
Any issuance of additional shares of common stock could reduce the current stockholders’ proportionate interests in the Company, depending on the number of shares issued and the purpose, terms and conditions of the issuance. Moreover, the issuance of additional shares of common stock could discourage attempts to acquire control of the Company by tender offer or other means. In such a case, stockholders might be deprived of benefits that could result from such an attempt, such as realization of a premium over the market price of their shares in a tender offer or the temporary increase in market price that could result from such an attempt.  Although the Board intends to issue common stock only when it considers such issuance to be in the best interest of the Company, the issuance of additional shares of common stock may have, among others, a dilutive effect on earnings per share of common stock and on the equity and voting rights of holders of shares of common stock. The Board believes, however, that the benefits of providing the flexibility to issue shares without delay for any business purpose outweigh any such possible disadvantages.
 
Ownership of shares of common stock entitles each stockholder to one vote per share of common stock. Holders of shares of common stock do not have preemptive rights to subscribe to additional securities that may be issued by the Company, which means that current stockholders do not have a prior right to purchase any new issue of capital stock of the Company in order to maintain their proportionate ownership. Stockholders wishing to maintain their interest, however, may be able to do so through normal market purchases.
 
The increase in the authorized common stock will be implemented by effecting an amendment to the Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation, replacing the current Article 4 with a new Article 4 that states as follows:
 
“The total number of shares of stock which the corporation is authorized to issue is 100,000,000,000 shares of Common Stock having a par value of $0.0001 per share.”
 
Assuming the increase in authorized common stock is approved by the stockholders at the Annual Meeting, an amendment to the Company’s Amended Certificate of Incorporation will be filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware, and the increase in authorized common stock will become effective as of 5:00 p.m. EDST time on the date of such filing. The Company expects that such filing will take place on or shortly after the date the Annual Meeting is held. The increase in authorized common stock may be abandoned by the Board at any time before or after the Annual Meeting should the stockholders not approve this proposal.
 
Vote Required; Board Recommendation
 
To be approved, this Proposal No. 2 must receive a “for” vote from the holders of a majority of the shares of common stock present and entitled to vote either in person or by proxy at the annual meeting. Abstentions will have the same effect as votes “against” Proposal No. 1; broker non-votes will have no effect. The Board recommends a vote “for” this Proposal No. 2 to INCREASE THE NUMBER OF AUTHORIZED SHARES OF COMMON STOCK FROM 6,500,000,000 SHARES TO 100,000,000,000 SHARES, AS SET FORTH ABOVE.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
 
Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

On October 4, 2007, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note in the amount of $200,000 to Billy Raley, the Company’s CEO and Director.  Interest accrues on the outstanding principal balance from and after October 4, 2007 at a rate of 11 percent per annum.   Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year, and shall be charged on the principal outstanding from time to time for the actual number of days elapsed.   The Company shall pay the Holder all accrued interest and the outstanding principal on the maturity date.  The maturity date of the note was April 4, 2008.  The note was not paid at maturity and is therefore in default.

On October 4, 2007, the Company issued an unsecured promissory note in the amount of $150,000 to Dyron M. Watford, the Company’s CFO and Chairman.  Interest accrues on the outstanding principal balance from and after October 4, 2007 at a rate of 11 percent per annum.   Interest shall be calculated on the basis of a 360-day year, and shall be charged on the principal outstanding from time to time for the actual number of days elapsed.   The Company shall pay the Holder all accrued interest and the outstanding principal on the maturity date.  The maturity date of the note was April 4, 2008.  The note was not paid at maturity and is therefore in default.

On September 12, 2006, we sold 2,500,000 restricted shares of our common stock for total net proceeds of $150,000 to a single accredited investor. Subsequently, on September 15, 2006, the Board of approved hiring this investor to serve as our Chief Executive Officer.

On October 6, 2006, we entered into an employment agreement with Kevin Tattersall as chief exploration officer. Mr. Tattersall’s employment agreement was for an initial term of two years and provided for an annual base salary of $60,000 (payable commencing October 6, 2006), an award of 812,500 shares of restricted stock and certain bonus compensation, including a discretionary bonus as determined by the Board . Our employment agreement with Mr. Tattersall was terminated in accordance with the terms of a Separation Agreement and General Release dated December 14, 2007, pursuant to which we agreed to pay Mr. Tattersall an aggregate severance payment of $5,000.

Other than the transaction listed above, we have not been a party to any transaction, proposed transaction, or series of transactions in which the amount involved exceeds $60,000, and in which, to our knowledge, any of our directors, officers, five percent beneficial security holders, or any member of the immediate family of the foregoing persons has had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management

The following table sets forth beneficial ownership information as of April 1, 2009 for shares of our capital stock or rights to acquire shares of our capital stock exercisable within 60 days beneficially owned by:
 
·
our chief executive officer and other executive officers;
 
·
each director;
 
·
our directors and executive officers as a group; and
 
·
each person who is known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of the outstanding shares of our common stock and other classes of voting stock.

Percentage ownership in the following table is based on 6,458,840,784 shares of common stock outstanding as of April 1, 2009.  A person is deemed to be the beneficial owner of securities that can be acquired by that person within 60 days from the date of this Proxy Statement upon the exercise of options, warrants or convertible securities.  Each beneficial owner’s percentage ownership is determined by dividing the number of shares beneficially owned by that person by the base number of outstanding shares, increased to reflect the shares underlying options, warrants or other convertible securities included in that person’s holdings, but not those underlying shares held by any other person.

To our knowledge, each person, along with his or her spouse, has sole voting and investment power over the shares unless otherwise noted.

Under this plan, a maximum of 37,500,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.0001, were authorized for issue.   The vesting and terms of all of the options are determined by the Board and may vary by optionee; however, the term may be no longer than 10 years from the date of grant.

Dividend Yield (per share)
$0.00
Volatility (%)
71.3%
Risk-free Interest Rate (%)
4.625%
Expected Life
3.0 years
Forfeiture Rate
15%

Accordingly, the weighted average fair value per option at the grant date was $0.39.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act (“Section 16(a)”) requires our directors, executive officers and beneficial owners of more than 10% of any class of our securities, to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of our common stock and other equity securities. Officers, directors and 10% beneficial owners are required by SEC regulation to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.
 
To our knowledge, based solely on a review of the copies of such reports furnished to us and written representations that no other reports were required during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008, all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to its officers, directors and 10% beneficial owners were complied with, except that two Form 4s were not timely filed for Mr. Raley and Mr. Watford.

Stockholder Communications with the Board
 
Historically, we have not adopted a formal process for stockholder communications with the Board. Nevertheless, every effort has been made to ensure that the views of our stockholders are heard by the Board or individual directors, as applicable, and that appropriate responses are provided to stockholders in a timely manner. We currently believe that these informal efforts to receive and respond to stockholder communications to the Board have proven effective in obviating the need for any formal process.
