FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This quarterly report contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Any statements contained herein that are not statements of historical fact may be deemed to be forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may”, “will”, “should”, “expect”, “plan”, “intend”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “predict”, “potential” or “continue”, the negative of such terms or other comparable terminology. In evaluating these statements, you should consider various factors, including the assumptions, risks and uncertainties outlined in this quarterly report under “Risk Factors”. These factors or any of them may cause our actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statement made in this quarterly report. Forward-looking statements in this quarterly report include, among others, statements regarding:

  • our capital needs;

  • business plans; and

  • expectations.

While these forward-looking statements, and any assumptions upon which they are based, are made in good faith and reflect our current judgment regarding future events, our actual results will likely vary, sometimes materially, from any estimates, predictions, projections, assumptions or other future performance suggested herein. Some of the risks and assumptions include:

  • our need for additional financing;

  • our exploration activities may not result in commercially exploitable quantities of ore on our mineral properties;

  • the risks inherent in the exploration for minerals such as geologic formation, weather, accidents, equipment failures and governmental restrictions;

  • our limited operating history;

  • our history of operating losses;

  • the potential for environmental damage;

  • our lack of insurance coverage;

  • the competitive environment in which we operate;

  • the level of government regulation, including environmental regulation;

  • changes in governmental regulation and administrative practices;

  • our dependence on key personnel;

  • conflicts of interest of our directors and officers;

  • our ability to fully implement our business plan;

  • our ability to effectively manage our growth; and

  • other regulatory, legislative and judicial developments.

We advise the reader that these cautionary remarks expressly qualify in their entirety all forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf. Important factors that you should also consider, include, but are not limited to, the factors referred to under “Risk Factors” in our annual report on Form 10-K file with the SEC.

The forward-looking statements in this quarterly report are made as of the date of this quarterly report and we do not intend or undertake to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results, except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States.

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Tresoro Mining Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 11, 2004 to promote and carry on any lawful business for which a corporation may be incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada. On May 24, 2007 the Company filed Articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of Nevada in order to effectuate a merger whereby the Company (as Ancor Resources, Inc.) would merge with its newly incorporated and wholly-owned subsidiary, Nu-Mex Uranium Corp. (“Nu-Mex”). This merger became effective June 4, 2007 and the Company, being the surviving entity, changed its name to Nu-Mex Uranium Corp. On February 26, 2008 the Company filed Articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of Nevada in order to effectuate a merger whereby the Company (as Nu-Mex) would merge with its newly incorporated and wholly-owned subsidiary, Uranium International Corp. (“UIC”). This merger became effective as of March 11, 2008 and the Company, being the surviving entity, changed its name to Uranium International Corp. On May 17, 2010 the Company filed Articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of Nevada in order to effectuate a merger whereby the Company (as UIC) would merge with its newly incorporated and wholly-owned subsidiary, Mercer Gold Corporation (“Mercer”). This merger became effective on the OTC Bulletin Board and effective with the State of Nevada on June 17, 2010 and the Company, being the surviving entity, changed its name to Mercer Gold Corporation. On August 30, 2011, the Company filed Articles of Merger with the Secretary of State of Nevada in order to effectuate a merger whereby the Company (as Mercer) would merge with its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tresoro Mining Corp. (“Tresoro”). This merger became effective September 15, 2011 and the Company, being the surviving entity, changed its name to Tresoro Mining Corp. The Company intends to engage in the acquisition and exploration of mining properties. The Company is in the exploration stage and its operations principally involve research and development, market analysis, property evaluation and other business planning activities, and no revenue has been generated to date.

Effective June 6, 2007 the Company completed a forward stock split by the issuance of 5 new shares for each 1 outstanding share of the Company’s common stock. Effective March 11, 2008 the Company completed a forward stock split by the issuance of 1.5 new shares for each 1 outstanding share of the Company’s common stock. Effective May 12, 2011, the Company completed a reverse stock split by the issuance of 1 new share for 4 outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock (Note 9). Unless otherwise noted, all references herein to number of shares, price per share or weighted average shares outstanding have been adjusted to reflect these stock splits on a retroactive basis.

The Company is an exploration stage enterprise, as defined in Accounting Standards Codification (the “Codification” or “ASC”) 915-10, “Development Stage Entities.” The Company is devoting all of its present efforts to securing and establishing a new business and its planned principal operations have not commenced. Accordingly, no revenue has been derived during the organization period.

Going Concern
The Company’s interim consolidated financial statements as at November 30, 2011, and for the nine month period then ended have been prepared based on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred operating losses since inception of $32,383,517. The Company requires additional funding to meet its ongoing obligations and anticipated ongoing operating losses. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on raising capital to fund its initial business plan and ultimately to attain profitable operations. Accordingly, these factors raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company intends to continue to fund its exploration business by way of private placements and advances from shareholders as may be required.

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION (continued)

Unaudited Interim Consolidated Financial Statements
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. They do not include all information and footnotes required by United States generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for complete consolidated financial statements. However, except as disclosed herein, there have been no material changes in the information disclosed in the notes to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended February 28, 2011 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with those consolidated financial statements included in the Form 10-K. In the opinion of Management, all adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, have been made. Operating results for the nine months ended November 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending February 28, 2012.

Comparative Figures
Certain comparative figures have been reclassified in order to conform to the current period’s financial statement presentation.

NOTE 2 – CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICIES

In December 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2010-28, “Intangibles, Goodwill and Other”. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-28 during the period did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

In December 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-29, “Business Combinations”. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-29 during the period did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The following is a summary of significant accounting policies used in the preparation of these consolidated financial statements.

Basis of Presentation
The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to U.S. GAAP applicable to exploration stage enterprises. The functional currency is the U.S. dollar, and the interim consolidated financial statements are presented in U. S. dollars.

Mineral Property Expenditures
Mineral property acquisition costs are initially capitalized as tangible assets when purchased. At the end of each fiscal quarter end, the Company assesses the carrying costs for impairment. If proven and probable reserves are established for a property and it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed, costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable reserve.

Mineral property exploration costs are expensed as incurred.

Estimated future removal and site restoration costs, when determinable are provided over the life of proven reserves on a units-of-production basis. Costs, which include production equipment removal and environmental remediation, are estimated each period by management based on current regulations, actual expenses incurred, and technology and industry standards. Any charge is included in exploration expense or the provision for depletion and depreciation during the period and the actual restoration expenditures are charged to the accumulated provision amounts as incurred.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
NOVEMBER 30, 2011
(Expressed in U.S. Dollars)
(Unaudited)

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

As of the date of these interim consolidated financial statements, the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties and incurred only acquisition and exploration costs.

Although the Company has taken steps to verify title to mineral properties in which it has an interest, according to the usual industry standards for the stage of exploration of such properties, these procedures do not guarantee the Company’s title. Such properties may be subject to prior agreements or transfers and title may be affected by undetected defects.

Asset Retirement Obligations
The Company has adopted ASC 410, “Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations”, which requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred. ASC 410 requires the Company to record a liability for the present value of the estimated site restoration costs with a corresponding increase to the carrying amount of the related long-lived assets. The liability will be accreted and the asset will be depreciated over the life of the related assets. Adjustments for changes resulting from the passage of time and changes to either the timing or amount of the original present value estimate underlying the obligation will be made. There were no asset retirement obligations as at November 30, 2011.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant areas requiring management’s estimates and assumptions are the determination of the fair value of transactions involving common stock and financial instruments. Other areas requiring estimates include deferred tax balances and asset impairment tests.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
For the statements of cash flows, all highly liquid investments with maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. There were no cash and cash equivalents as of November 30, 2011 that exceeded federally insured limits.

Net Income (Loss) per Common Share
The Company computes income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted income (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. Dilutive loss per share excludes all potential common shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Fair Value Financial Instruments
A fair value hierarchy was established that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements).

The fair values of the financial instruments were determined using the following input levels and valuation techniques:

Level 1:

classification is applied to any asset or liability that has a readily available quoted market price from an active market where there is significant transparency in the executed/quoted price.

Level 2:

classification is applied to assets and liabilities that have evaluated prices where the data inputs to these valuations are observable either directly or indirectly, but do not represent quoted market prices from an active market.

Level 3:

classification is applied to assets and liabilities when prices are not derived from existing market data and requires us to develop our own assumptions about how market participants would price the asset or liability.

As at November 30, 2011, the fair value of cash and cash equivalents, amounts receivables, accounts payable, amounts due to related parties and promissory notes payable approximate carrying value due to their short maturities.

(Expressed in U.S. Dollars)

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Credit Risk
Credit risk arises primarily from the Company’s cash and cash equivalents and amounts receivable. The Company manages its credit risk relating to cash and cash equivalents by dealing only with highly-rated financial institutions. As at November 30, 2011, amounts receivable was comprised of Harmonized Sales Tax receivable of $35,009 (February 28, 2011 - $15,690). As a result, credit risk is considered insignificant.

Liquidity Risk
The Company manages liquidity risk by continuously monitoring actual and projected cash flows and matching the maturity profile of financial assets and liabilities. The Company currently has a working capital deficit of $2,647,105 (February 28, 2011 -$1,311,656).

Current Risk
The Company is exposed to currency risk on its acquisition and exploration expenditures on its Colombian properties since it has to convert U.S. dollars raised through equity financing in U.S. dollars to Colombian Pesos. The Company’s expenditures will be negatively impacted if the Colombian Pesos increases versus the US dollar.

The majority of the Company’s cash flows and financial assets and liabilities are denominated in U.S. dollar, which is the Company’s functional and reporting currency. Foreign currency risk is limited to the portion of the Company’s business transactions denominated in currencies other than the U.S. dollar.

The Company monitors and forecasts the values of net foreign currency cash flow and balance sheet exposures and from time to time could authorize the use of derivative financial instruments such as forward foreign exchange contracts to economically hedge a position of foreign currency fluctuations. Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk.

Other Risks
Unless otherwise noted, the Company is not exposed to significant interest rate risk and commodity price risk.

Income Taxes
The Company follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax balances. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted tax rates expected to apply to the taxable income in the years in which those differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the date of enactment or substantive enactment. As at November 30, 2011, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards, however, due to the uncertainty of realization, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance for the deferred tax assets resulting from these loss carryforwards.

Foreign Currency Translation
The financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars. In accordance with ASC 830, “Foreign Currency Matters”, foreign denominated monetary assets and liabilities are translated to their U.S. dollar equivalents using foreign exchange rates which prevailed at the balance sheet date. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange during the period. Related translation adjustments are reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, whereas gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in results of operations.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Stock-Based Compensation
On June 1, 2006, the Company adopted ASC 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which establishes accounting for equity instruments exchanged for employee services. Under the provisions of ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the employees’ requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the equity grant). The Company adopted ASC 718 using the modified prospective method, which requires the Company to record compensation expense over the vesting period for all awards granted after the date of adoption, and for the unvested portion of previously granted awards that remain outstanding at the date of adoption. Accordingly, financial statements for the periods prior to January 1, 2006 have not been restated to reflect the fair value method of expensing share-based compensation. Adoption of ASC 718 does not change the way the Company accounts for share-based payments to non-employees, with guidance provided by ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”.

Property and Equipment
Property and equipment are recorded at cost and are depreciated over their estimated useful lives using the declining balance method at the following annual rates:

Furniture and fixtures 10%
Machinery and equipment 10%
Computer equipment 20%

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”. This ASU presents an entity with the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments in this update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. As ASU 2011-05 relates only to the presentation of comprehensive income, the Company does not expect that the adoption of this update will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 5 – MINERAL PROPERTY COSTS

(a) Guayabales Property
On April 5, 2010, the Company entered into a letter of intent (the “LOI”), dated April 3, 2010 with Mercer Gold Corp., a private Canadian corporation (“Mercer Canada”). Pursuant to the LOI, Mercer Canada has granted to the Company an exclusive option (the “Option”) to acquire all of Mercer Canada’s current underlying option interests under an option agreement, dated March 4, 2010 (the “Underlying Option Agreement”), as entered into between Mercer Canada and Comunidad Mineral Guayabales (the “Underlying Property Owner”).

    NOTE 10 – INCOME TAXES

    The Company has losses carry forward for income tax purposes to November 30, 2011. There are no current or deferred tax expenses for the nine months ended November 30, 2011 due to the Company’s loss position. The Company has fully reserved for any benefits of these losses. The deferred tax consequences of temporary differences in reporting items for financial statement and income tax purposes are recognized, as appropriate. Realization of the future tax benefits related to the deferred tax assets is dependent on many factors, including the Company’s ability to generate taxable income within the net operating loss carryforward period. Management has considered these factors in reaching its conclusion as to the valuation allowance for financial reporting purposes.

    The provision for refundable federal income tax consists of the following:

    NOTE 11 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

    The Company is subject to certain outstanding and future commitments related to its mineral property interests (Note 5).

    During the year ended February 28, 2011, the Company wrote down amounts due to the Plaintiff of $88,170 related to the Company’s former CEO and director. This write down has been recorded as a recovery of expenses and a decrease in due to related parties.

    On June 9, 2011, a former officer and director of the Company and Mercer Canada, a company controlled by the former officer and director of the Company (the “Plaintiff”), filed an action against the Company in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The Plaintiff alleges that the Company owes him certain monies for payment under an alleged promissory note as well as pursuant to certain alleged management fees, expenses and disbursements which is asserted were incurred by the plaintiff in the plaintiff’s prior role as an officer and director of the Company. The Company is of the view that such allegations are without merit and has and intends to vigorously contest the action. On July 13, 2011, the Company filed a defence to this action and a counterclaim against the plaintiff denying that any monies are owing and seeking damages against the plaintiff for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation.

    On July 11, 2011, the Plaintiff delivered a letter to the Company which purported to allege defaults under the Company's existing Mercer Option Agreement, dated for reference effective as at April 13, 2010, with respect to the Guayabales Property in Colombia (Note 5). It is the Company's position that the allegations of default are without merit and the letter was not valid notice of default under the Mercer Option Agreement.

    On July 19, 2011, the Company responded and advised the Plaintiff as to its position with respect to each allegation of default.

    On August 25, 2011, the Plaintiff delivered a letter to the Company, which purported to terminate the Mercer Option Agreement on the basis that the alleged defaults had not been cured. The Company regards the plaintiff’s position as without merit and considers the purported termination to be invalid. The Company intends to continue as operator of the mineral property interests underlying the project as set forth in the Mercer Option Agreement.

    On September 9, 2011, the Company gave notice to the Plaintiff that it intends to commence arbitration proceedings to address the validity of the termination of the Mercer Option Agreement.

    On September 13, 2011, the Company filed an amended counterclaim as against the Plaintiff.

    NOTE 11 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES (continued)

    On September 20, 2011 the Company filed a notice of application against the Plaintiff, seeking an injunction against the Plaintiff to restrain them from interfering with the Company's activities as operator of the Guayabales Property in Colombia and from interfering with the Company's rights as optionee under the Mercer Option Agreement, pending conclusion of arbitration.

    On October 3, 2011, the Plaintiff filed a response to civil claim, and on October 11, 2011, the Plaintiff filed a counterclaim, joining the members of the Company's Board of Directors as defendants. These pleadings have been filed in opposition to the Company's claim seeking an interlocutory injunction pending arbitration of the parties' dispute concerning the Plaintiff's purported termination of the Mercer Option Agreement. The counterclaim seeks, among other things, a declaration that the Mercer Option Agreement is void and/or rescission of the Mercer Option Agreement. The counterclaim also seeks damages. The Company denies all of the claims made in the counterclaim as malicious, spurious and without factual basis.

    The Company applied to stay the claims advanced against it in the counterclaim pending the outcome of the arbitration. The Plaintiff has applied for a stay of the arbitration proceedings commenced by the Company on September 21, 2011. The hearing of both applications was heard by the Supreme Court of British Columbia on October 26 and 27, 2011.

    On December 6, 2011 the British Columbia Supreme Court (the "Court") issued Reasons for Judgment (the "Reasons for Judgment") granting an injunction against both Mr. Jivraj and Mercer Canada, enjoining each of them from taking any steps to interfere with the Company's role as operator of the Guayabales Gold Project located in Colombia (the "Property") and interfering with the Option Agreement, pending completion of the arbitration proceeding commenced by the Company with respect to such matter (the "Arbitration Proceeding"). The Court has also ordered that a counterclaim filed by Mercer Canada in the Court shall be stayed.

    The Court rejected Mercer BC's application to stay the Arbitration Proceeding commenced by the Company. Mercer BC had argued that the Company was barred from seeking arbitration to challenge Mercer BC's termination of the Option Agreement. The Court determined that the Company was not barred and that the issues sought to be determined by the Company are appropriately advanced in the Arbitration Proceeding now being administered by the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre.

    In the Reasons for Judgment, the Court has also ordered each of Mercer BC and Mr. Jivraj to disclose, within 24 hours, the names of all persons and entities with whom Mr. Jivraj has discussed a possible sale or deal concerning the Property since March 28, 2011, and to refrain from communicating with any person or entity for the purpose of discussing a possible agreement concerning the Property in a manner inconsistent with the Company's continuing role as optionee and operator of the Property, pending the Arbitration Proceeding. The Court has further restrained Mr. Jivraj from taking any steps to transfer his shares in Mercer BC and the Company to any third party.

    On December 21, 2011, Mercer BC delivered a letter to the Company providing notice of default (the “Second Notice of Default”) which purported to allege default by the Company under section 2.2(c)(i) of the Option Agreement as amended by the Company and Mercer BC on or about March 22, 2011.

    On December 29, 2011, the Company responded and advised Mercer BC that the Company disputes the validity of the Second Notice of Default, that it denies that such default has occurred and that it is submitting the question to arbitration.

    On January 9, 2012, the Company filed a notice to arbitrate the Second Notice of Default with Mercer BC and the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre pursuant to Article 16.2 of the Option Agreement, whereby the Company is seeking: (i) a declaration that the Second Notice of Default is invalid; (ii) in the alternative, a declaration that the Company was not in default as alleged in the Second Notice of Default; and (ii) an order requiring Mercer BC to pay to the Company costs of the arbitration.

    The Company continues to take the position that the actions of the Plaintiff are both spurious and without merit. As a loss is not deemed to be likely, no accruals have been made as of November 30, 2011.

    Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

    The following discussion of our financial condition, changes in financial condition and results of operations for the three and nine months ended November 30, 2011 and 2010 should be read in conjunction with our unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and related notes for the thee and nine months ended November 30, 2011 and 2010. The following discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including, but not limited to, those referred to under the heading “Risk Factors” below.

    Overview of Our Business

    We are an exploration stage company and there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on any of our property interests. Further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility is determined with respect to any of our mineral property interests.

    At the present time, our primary property of interest is the Guayabales Property, Colombia as described below.

    Mineral Properties – Guayabales Property, Colombia

    Mineral Assets Option Agreement

    On April 13, 2010, we entered into a definitive Mineral Assets Option Agreement (the “Definitive Option Agreement”) with Mercer Gold Corporation, a private mining company (“MGC”), pursuant to which MGC formally granted to us an exclusive option (the “Option”) to acquire all of MGC’s current underlying option interests under a certain “Option Agreement”, dated for reference March 4, 2010 (the “Underlying Option Agreement”), as entered into between MGC and Comunidad Minera Guayabales (the “Underlying Property Owner” or “CMG”), pursuant to which MGC acquired from the Underlying Property Owner an option (the “Underlying Option”) to acquire a 100% legal, beneficial and registerable interest in and to certain mineral property concession interests which are held by way of license and which are located in the municipality of Marmato, Colombia, and which are better known and described as the “Guayabales” property (collectively, the “Guayabales Property”). The Definitive Option Agreement replaces an underlying letter of intent by and between and MGC and us, dated April 3, 2010.

    The Definitive Option Agreement provides that, in order to exercise our Option, we are obligated to:

    1.

    Pay to MGC $200,000 immediately upon the execution of the Definitive Option Agreement (the “Effective Date”) (paid on April 14, 2010);

         
    2.

    Issue to MGC, both prior to and after the due and complete exercise of the Option, an aggregate of up to 5,000,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, as follows:

         
  • an initial issuance of 2,500,000 shares within two business days of the Effective Date (issued on April 15, 2010); and

  • a final issuance of 2,500,000 shares within five business days of the Company’s prior receipt of a “technical report” (as that term is defined in section 1.1 of National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) meeting certain criteria);

         
    3.

    Provide funding for or expend minimum cumulative “Expenditures” for “Exploration and Development” (as defined in the Definitive Option Agreement) work on or in connection with any of the mineral interests comprising the Property interests of not less than $11,500,000 in the following manner:

         
  • no less than an initial $1,500,000 of the Expenditures shall be expended on the Property by December 31, 2010 (incurred);

  • no less than a further $5,000,000 of the Expenditures shall be expended on the Property by December 31, 2011; and

  • no less than a final $5,000,000 of the Expenditures shall be expended on the Property by December 31, 2012; and

         
    4.

    Pay on MGC’s behalf all underlying option, regulatory and governmental payments and assessment work required to keep the Property in good standing during the Option period (being that period from the Effective Date to the closing date in respect of the due and complete exercise of the Option as described in the Definitive Option Agreement, which shall not be later than January 13, 2013), and including, without limitation, all remaining cash payments required to be made to the Underlying Property Owner under the Underlying Option Agreement. The Company must pay the Underlying Property Owner an aggregate of $4,000,000 in the instalments by the dates specified as follows:

    28


    • Pay $20,000 by October 14, 2009 (paid);
    • Pay additional $40,000 on or by 90 days from October 14, 2009 (paid);

    On December 30, 2010, an amendment was agreed to whereby the funding for minimum cumulative “Expenditures” for “Exploration and Development” (as defined in the Definitive Option Agreement) work on or in connection with any of the mineral interests comprising the Property interests of not less than $11,500,000 was revised in the following manner:

    • no less than an initial $750,000 of the Expenditures shall be expended on the Property by December 31, 2010 (incurred);

    • no less than a final $1,000,000 of the Expenditures shall be expended on the Property by December 31, 2013.

    Title to Property and Underlying Option Agreement

    CMG, a Colombian legal entity, is the rightful owner of the concession contract #LH 0071-17, an exploitation license valid until March 28, 2032, that was registered on March 28, 2008 by INGEOMINAS in the Department of Caldas (registration #HHXB 01). As described above, MGC, a privately-held, Canadian entity registered in British Colombia, entered into an Option Agreement “Underlying Option Agreement” with CMG on March 4, 2010 to acquire a 100% interest in Guayabales. The Company entered into the Definitive Option Agreement with MGC as described above to acquire the 100% interest of Guayabales subject to the terms of the Underlying Option Agreement. No surface agreements are in place; however, CMG represents and warrants reasonable surface access to Guayabales in the Underlying Option Agreement and the Colombian Mining Code guarantees surface access.

    In Colombia, all mineral rights are the property of the government of Colombia. Obtaining a mining right does not transfer ownership of the mineral estate, but creates a temporary right to explore and benefit from minerals in exchange for royalty payments so long as the mining title remains in good standing. Under Colombian mining law, foreign individuals and corporations have the same rights as Colombian individuals and corporations, and Colombian governmental regulatory bodies are specifically prohibited from requiring any additional or different requirements than would be required of a Colombian individual or corporation.

    Subject to the Definitive Option Agreement as described above, the Company is responsible for all obligations established in the Underlying Option Agreement between MGC and CMG in order to complete the 100% acquisition of the Guayabales Property. These obligations include cash payments; provision for allowing continued Limited Mining Rights as described below; property maintenance; and quarterly reports. More specifically, these include:

    29



      1.

    Cash Payments: The Company is responsible to make cash payments to CMG as described above.

         
      2.

    Limited Mining Rights: The Company provides CMG with Limited Mining Rights, allowing the cooperative group of miners belonging to the entity to continue mining operations on the property. Operations are not to exceed 80 metric tonnes per day, providing that the mining operations are restricted to geographic areas in which mining operations are currently being conducted. The Company has the right to terminate this right to mine, by either completing the cash payment schedule described above, or by making a one time cash payment of $600,000.

         
      3.

    Property Maintenance: The Company is obligated to maintain the property in good standing, free and clear of all liens, charges and encumbrances.

         
      4.

    Property Reports: The Company is obligated to provide CMG with summary operating reports on a 3 month/quarterly schedule.

    Technical Report

    We received a technical report in accordance with the provisions of National Instrument 43-101, Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”), of the Canadian Securities Administrators for the Guayabales Property, which is located in the Department of Caldas, Colombia. The complete technical report, which was authored by Dean D. Turner, C.P.G., a qualified person as defined in NI 43-101, was filed under our Company’s profile on the Canadian Securities Administrators public disclosure website, at www.sedar.com, on May 28, 2010. Mr. Turner prepared an update to this technical report, dated February 8, 2011. The technical report, as updated, is referred to herein as the “Technical Report.”

    As required by NI 43-101, the Technical Report contains certain disclosure relating to measured, indicated and inferred mineral resource estimates for the Guayabales Project. Such mineral resources have been estimated in accordance with the definition standards on mineral resources of the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum referred to in NI 43-101. Measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources and inferred mineral resources, while recognized and required by Canadian regulations, are not defined terms under the SEC’s Industry Guide 7, and are normally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC. Accordingly, we have not reported them in this quarterly report or otherwise in the United States.

    Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of the mineral resources in these categories will ever be converted into mineral reserves. These terms have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. In particular, it should be noted that mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources or inferred mineral resources discussed in the Technical Report will ever be upgraded to a higher category. In accordance with Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources cannot form the basis of feasibility or other economic studies. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part of the reported measured mineral resources, indicated mineral resources or inferred mineral resources referred to in the Technical Report are economically or legally mineable.

    Plan of Operations

    Our Plan of Operations for the next twelve months is to pursue Phase I of the recommended exploration program on the Guayabales Property, as described in more detail in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended February 28, 2011, under “Item 1. Business – Mineral Properties – Guayabales Property, Colombia – Company’s Planned Exploration Program.”

    We have decided to reduce the work program for the next 12 months while we review our forward plan in depth and estimate we will spend about $1,000,000 over the next 12 months. Further, we expect to spend approximately $300,000 in the next 12 months in office and general expenses and professional, consulting and management fees.

    Based on our current plan of operations as set forth above, we estimate that we will require approximately $1.3 million to pursue our plan of operations over the next twelve months. As at November 30, 2011, we had cash of $7,806 and a working capital deficit of $2,647,105. We will require additional financing to pursue our plan of operations over the next twelve months. There can be no assurance that we will obtain any additional financing in the amounts required or on terms favorable to us. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we may have to re-evaluate or abandon our business activities and revise our plan of operations.

    We anticipate that additional funding will be in the form of equity financing from the sale of our common stock. However, we cannot provide investors with any assurance that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common stock to fund our plan of operations going forward. In the absence of such financing, our business plan will fail. Even if we are successful in obtaining equity financing, there is no assurance that we will obtain the funding necessary to pursue our business plan. If we do not continue to obtain additional financing going forward, we will be forced to re-evaluate or abandon our plan of operations.

The major components of our general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended November 30, 2011 and 2010 consisted of the following:

    • write down of mineral property acquisition costs of $Nil in 2011 (2010 - $100,000);

    • consulting fees of $23,740 in 2011 (2010 - $124,194), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to reduced activity associated with the Guayabales property;

    • interest expense of $85,318 in 2011 (2010 - $9,607), increased between 2010 and 2011 due to increase in debt;

    • legal and accounting fees of $329,356 in 2011 (2010 – $237,333), which increased between 2010 and 2011 due primarily to increased legal costs in connection with the Guayabales property, our reverse stock split and name change during the period, and legal proceedings;

    31


    • management fees of $69,038 in 2011 (2010 - $14,085);

    • marketing and promotion costs of $41,484 in 2011 (2010 - $101,591), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 as we decreased focus on these activities;

    • mineral property development expenditures of $776,294 in 2011 (2010 - $754,566), which were quite consistent between 2010 and 2011;

    • office and miscellaneous expenses of $99,714 (2010 – $167,264), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to foreign exchange gains on operations in Colombia and reduced administrative activities;

    • stock-based compensation of $213,883 in 2011 (2010 - $2,702,937), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to reduced issuance of stock options.

    Our net loss during the nine months ended November 30, 2011 was $1,730,407 compared to a net loss of $4,276,997 during the nine months ended November 30, 2010.

    Three Months Ended November 30, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended November 30, 2010

    During the three months ended November 30, 2011 and November 30, 2010 we did not generate any revenue.

    During the three months ended November 30, 2011, we incurred general and administrative expenses of $429,934 compared to $907,693 incurred during the three months ended November 30, 2010. The major components of our general and administrative expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2011 and 2010 consisted of the following:

    • consulting fees of $3,740 in 2011 (2010 - $31,147), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to reduced activity associated with the Guayabales property;

    • interest expense of $37,035 in 2011 (2010 - $Nil), increased between 2010 and 2011 due to increase in debt;

    • legal and accounting fees of $226,888 in 2011 (2010 – $25,189), which increased between 2010 and 2011 due to increased legal costs in connection with the Guayabales property, our name change during the period, and legal proceedings;

    • management fees of $36,463 in 2011 (2010 - $49,928);

    • marketing and promotion costs of $5,894 in 2011 (2010 - $62,668), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 as we decreased focus on these activities;

    • mineral property development expenditures of $Nil in 2011 (2010 - $516,334), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to decreased exploration activity;

    • office and miscellaneous expenses of $8,923 (2010 – $57,418), which decreased between 2010 and 2011 due to foreign exchange gains on operations in Colombia and reduced administrative activities;

    • rent of $18,085 in 2011 (2010 - $16,660) which increased from 2010 to 2011 as we increased our activity; and

    Our net loss during the three months ended November 30, 2011 was $429,934 compared to a net loss of $907,693 during the three months ended November 30, 2010.

    Liquidity and Capital Resources

    As at the nine months ended November 30, 2011, our current assets were $89,841 (February 28, 2011 - $181,944) and our current liabilities were $2,736,946 (February 28, 2011 - $1,493,600), which resulted in a working capital deficit of $2,647,105 compared to a working capital deficit of $1,311,656 at February 28, 2011.

    Total Stockholders’ equity decreased from $4,058,055 at February 28, 2011 to $3,008,959 at November 30, 2011.

    32


    Cash Flows Used in Operating Activities

    We have not generated positive cash flows from operating activities. For the nine months ended November 30, 2011, net cash flows used in operating activities was $740,942 consisting primarily of a net loss of $1,730,407. Net cash flows used in operating activities was adjusted by $85,713 in accrued interest on a related party promissory note, $768 in depreciation of property and equipment, $107 in gain on sale of equipment, and $213,883 in stock based compensation. Net cash flows used in operating activities was further changed by $19,319 in increase in amounts receivable, $6,906 in increase of prepaid expenses, $686,309 in increase of accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and $29,124 in increase due to related parties.

    For the nine months ended November 30, 2010, net cash flows used in operating activities was $1,602,973 consisting primarily of a net loss of $4,276,997. Net cash flows used in operating activities was adjusted by $9,607 in settlement of accrued interest on related party promissory note, $90 in depreciation of property and equipment, $100,000 in write down of mineral property acquisition costs, $2,702,937 in stock based compensation and $120,843 non-cash gain on settlement of debt. Net cash flows used in operating activities was further changed by $101,805 in increase of accounts payable and accrued liabilities, $19,875 in increase due to related parties, $134,207 in increase of prepaid expenses and $5,240 in amounts receivable.

    Cash Flows Used in Investing Activities

    For the nine months ended November 30, 2011, net cash flows used in investing activities was $234,514 compared to net cash flows used in investing activities during the nine months ended November 30, 2010 of $357,857. This change was primarily as a result of option payments to Mercer Canada for the Guayabales Property.

    Cash Flows Provided by Financing Activities

    We have financed our operations primarily from either advancements or the issuance of equity and debt instruments. For the nine months ended November 30, 2011, net cash flows provided from financing activities was $849,700 compared to $2,048,427 for the nine months ended November 30, 2010. Cash flows from financing activities for the nine months ended November 30, 2011 consisted primarily of $449,700 of advances from related parties and promissory note, and $400,000 for common shares issued for cash or cash subscribed for common shares. Cash flows from financing activities for the nine months ended November 30, 2010 consisted of $340 in bank overdraft, $151,233 in repayment of advances from related parties and promissory note, and $2,200,000 for common shares issued for cash.

    We expect that working capital requirements will continue to be funded through a combination of our existing funds and further issuances of securities. Our working capital requirements are expected to increase as we expand our exploration activities as set forth above under “Plan of Operations”.

    Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

    Our condensed interim financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) applied on a consistent basis. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

    We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our financial statements. In general, management’s estimates are based on historical experience, on information from third party professionals, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

    Basis of Presentation

    The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to U.S. GAAP applicable to exploration stage enterprises. The functional currency is the U.S. dollar, and the financial statements are presented in U. S. dollars.

    The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Mercer One Panama Corp. and Mercer Two Panama Corp. All significant inter-company transactions and account balances have been eliminated upon consolidation.

    33


    Mineral Property Expenditures

    Mineral property acquisition costs are initially capitalized as tangible assets when purchased. At the end of each fiscal quarter end, the Company assesses the carrying costs for impairment. If proven and probable reserves are established for a property and it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed, costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable reserve.

    Mineral property exploration costs are expensed as incurred.

    Estimated future removal and site restoration costs, when determinable are provided over the life of proven reserves on a units-of-production basis. Costs, which include production equipment removal and environmental remediation, are estimated each period by management based on current regulations, actual expenses incurred, and technology and industry standards. Any charge is included in exploration expense or the provision for depletion and depreciation during the period and the actual restoration expenditures are charged to the accumulated provision amounts as incurred.

    As of the date of these financial statements, the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties and incurred only acquisition and exploration costs.

    Although the Company has taken steps to verify title to mineral properties in which it has an interest, according to the usual industry standards for the stage of exploration of such properties, these procedures do not guarantee the Company’s title. Such properties may be subject to prior agreements or transfers and title may be affected by undetected defects.

    Asset Retirement Obligations

    The Company has adopted ASC 410, “Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations”, which requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred. ASC 410 requires the Company to record a liability for the present value of the estimated site restoration costs with corresponding increase to the carrying amount of the related long-lived assets. The liability will be accreted and the asset will be depreciated over the life of the related assets. Adjustments for changes resulting from the passage of time and changes to either the timing or amount of the original present value estimate underlying the obligation will be made. There were no asset retirement obligations as at November 30, 2011.

    Use of Estimates

    The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant areas requiring management’s estimates and assumptions are the determination of the fair value of transactions involving common stock and financial instruments. Other areas requiring estimates include deferred tax balances and asset impairment tests.

    Cash and Cash Equivalents

    For the statements of cash flows, all highly liquid investments with maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents. There were no cash and cash equivalents as of November 30, 2011 and February 28, 2011 that exceeded federally insured limits.

    Net Income (Loss) per Common Share

    The Company computes income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share” which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted income (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. Dilutive loss per share excludes all potential common shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

    Financial Instruments

    The fair value of the Company’s financial assets and financial liabilities approximate their carrying values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments.

    34


    Income Taxes

    The Company follows the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax balances. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted or substantially enacted tax rates expected to apply to the taxable income in the years in which those differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the date of enactment or substantive enactment. As at November 30, 2011, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards, however, due to the uncertainty of realization, the Company has provided a full valuation allowance for the deferred tax assets resulting from these loss carryforwards.

    Foreign Currency Translation

    The financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars. In accordance with ASC 830 “Foreign Currency Matters”, foreign denominated monetary assets and liabilities are translated to their U.S. dollar equivalents using foreign exchange rates which prevailed at the balance sheet date. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange during the period. Related translation adjustments are reported as a separate component of stockholders’ equity, whereas gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in results of operations.

    Stock-Based Compensation

    On June 1, 2006, the Company adopted ASC 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which establishes accounting for equity instruments exchanged for employee services. Under the provisions of ASC 718, stock-based compensation cost is measured at the grant date, based on the calculated fair value of the award, and is recognized as an expense over the employees’ requisite service period (generally the vesting period of the equity grant). The Company adopted ASC 718 using the modified prospective method, which requires the Company to record compensation expense over the vesting period for all awards granted after the date of adoption, and for the unvested portion of previously granted awards that remain outstanding at the date of adoption. Accordingly, financial statements for the periods prior to January 1, 2006 have not been restated to reflect the fair value method of expensing share-based compensation. The adoption of ASC 718 does not change the way the Company accounts for share-based payments to non-employees, with guidance provided by ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”.

    Other Updates

    In December 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2010-28, “Intangibles, Goodwill and Other”. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-28 during the period did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

    In December 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-29, “Business Combinations”. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-29 during the period did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, cash flows or results of operations.

    Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

    In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Presentation of Comprehensive Income”. This ASU presents an entity with the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments in this update do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. As ASU 2011-05 relates only to the presentation of Comprehensive Income, the Company does not expect that the adoption of this update will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

    Funding for Plan of Operations

    As set forth above under “Plan of Operations”, we anticipate that we will required approximately $1.3 million over the next twelve months to pursue our Plan of Operations. We will require additional financing in order to be able to fund our plan of operations. Generally, we have financed operations to date through the proceeds of the private placement of equity and debt instruments. In connection with our business plan, management anticipates additional increases in exploration expenses and capital expenditures relating to: (i) exploration properties; and (ii) future exploration property acquisitions. We intend to finance these expenses with further issuances of securities, and debt issuances. Thereafter, we expect we will need to raise additional capital and generate revenues to meet long-term operating requirements. Additional issuances of equity or convertible debt securities will result in dilution to our current shareholders. Further, such securities might have rights, preferences or privileges senior to our common stock. Additional financing may not be available upon acceptable terms, or at all. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, we may not be able to take advantage of prospective new business endeavors or opportunities, which could significantly and materially restrict our business operations.

    35


    Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

    We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

    Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

    We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information required under this item.

    Item 4. Controls and Procedures

    Disclosure Controls and Procedures

    We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our principal executive officer, Gary Powers, and our principal financial officer, William Thomas, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer are responsible for establishing and maintaining disclosure controls and procedures for our Company.

    Gary Powers, our principal executive officer, and William Thomas, our principal financial officer, have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) of the Exchange Act) as of November 30, 2011. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of November 30, 2011.

    Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

    There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended November 30, 2011 that have materially affected, or are likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

    PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

    Item 1. Legal Proceedings

    On June 9, 2011, Rahim Jivraj, a former officer and director of the Company filed an action against the Company in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. The plaintiff alleges that the Company owes him certain monies for payment under an alleged promissory note as well as pursuant to certain alleged management fees, expenses and disbursements which is asserted were incurred by the plaintiff in the plaintiff's prior role as an officer and director of the Company. The Company is of the view that such allegations are without merit and intends to vigorously contest the action. On July 13, 2011, the Company filed a defence to this action and a counterclaim against the plaintiff denying that any monies are owing and seeking damages against the plaintiff for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and misrepresentation

    On July 11, 2011, Mercer Gold Corp. ("Mercer BC"), a privately held British Columbia company which is owned and/or controlled by Mr. Jivraj, delivered a letter to the Company which purported to allege defaults under the Company's existing Mineral Assets Option Agreement, dated for reference effective as at April 13, 2010 (the "Option Agreement"), with Mercer BC, with respect to the Guayabales Gold Project in Columbia. It is the Company's position that the allegations of default are without merit and the letter was not valid notice of default under the Option Agreement.

    On July 19, 2011, the Company responded and advised Mercer BC as to its position with respect to each allegation of default.

    36


    On August 25, 2011, Mercer BC delivered a letter to the Company, which purported to terminate the Option Agreement on the basis that the alleged defaults had not been cured. The Company regards Mercer BC's position as without merit and considers the purported termination to be invalid. The Company intends to continue as operator of the mineral property interests underlying the project as set forth in the Option Agreement.

    On September 9, 2011, the Company gave notice to Mercer BC that it intends to commence arbitration proceedings to address the validity of the termination.

    On September 13, 2011, the Company filed an amended counterclaim as against Mr. Jivraj. The counterclaim seeks an order requiring Mr. Jivraj to disgorge to the Company all of his shares in Mercer BC together with restitution of all benefits he received from the Company while serving as its President. The Company also seeks damages, including aggravated and punitive damages. The counterclaim alleges that Mr. Jivraj acted in a conflict of interest, while President of the Company, by reason of his failure to divest himself of his interest in Mercer BC. It alleges that he formed a plan to use funds raised by the Company to develop the Option Agreement property interests, and then took active steps to put the Company in a position where it might default under the Option Agreement. It is alleged that he then resigned from the Company and resumed his position as President of Mercer BC in order to assist Mercer BC in reacquiring these property interests so that he could vend the property interests to another third party for new consideration. The counterclaim alleges that Mr. Jivraj has attempted to usurp a mature business opportunity belonging to the Company by assisting Mercer BC in issuing the default notice and the termination notice, in breach of fiduciary duty. In addition, the counterclaim alleges that Mr. Jivraj has interfered with the Company's economic interests using unlawful means, including fraud, deceit, conversion, slander of title and defamation. The counterclaim includes particulars of unlawful conduct, including an attempt by Mr. Jivraj to convince a Company consultant to assist him in triggering a default under the Option Agreement by ensuring that a third party service supplier was not paid.

    On September 20, 2011 the Company filed a notice of application against each of Mr. Jivraj and Mercer BC, seeking an injunction against Mr. Jivraj and Mercer BC to restrain them from interfering with the Company's activities as operator of the Guayabales Gold Project in Columbia and from interfering with the Company's rights as optionee under the Option Agreement, pending conclusion of arbitration.

    On October 3, 2011, Mercer BC filed a Response to Civil Claim, and on October 11, 2011 Mercer BC filed a Counterclaim, joining the members of the Company's Board of Directors as defendants. These pleadings have been filed in opposition to the Company's claim seeking an interlocutory injunction pending arbitration of the parties' dispute concerning Mercer BC's purported termination of the Option Agreement. The Counterclaim seeks, among other things, a declaration that the Option Agreement is void and/or rescission of the Option Agreement. The Counterclaim also seeks damages. The Company denies all of the claims made in the Counterclaim as malicious, spurious and without factual basis.

    On December 6, 2011 the British Columbia Supreme Court (the "Court") issued Reasons for Judgment (the "Reasons for Judgment") granting an injunction against both Mr. Jivraj and Mercer BC, enjoining each of them from taking any steps to interfere with the Company's role as operator of the Guayabales Gold Project located in Colombia (the "Property") and interfering with the Option Agreement, pending completion of the arbitration proceeding commenced by the Company with respect to such matter (the "Arbitration Proceeding"). The Court has also ordered that a counterclaim filed by Mercer BC in the Court shall be stayed.

    The Court rejected Mercer BC's application to stay the Arbitration Proceeding commenced by the Company. Mercer BC had argued that the Company was barred from seeking arbitration to challenge Mercer BC's termination of the Option Agreement. The Court determined that the Company was not barred and that the issues sought to be determined by the Company are appropriately advanced in the Arbitration Proceeding now being administered by the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre.

    In the Reasons for Judgment, the Court has also ordered each of Mercer BC and Mr. Jivraj to disclose, within 24 hours, the names of all persons and entities with whom Mr. Jivraj has discussed a possible sale or deal concerning the Property since March 28, 2011, and to refrain from communicating with any person or entity for the purpose of discussing a possible agreement concerning the Property in a manner inconsistent with the Company's continuing role as optionee and operator of the Property, pending the Arbitration Proceeding. The Court has further restrained Mr. Jivraj from taking any steps to transfer his shares in Mercer BC and the Company to any third party.

    On December 21, 2011, Mercer BC delivered a letter to the Company providing notice of default (the “Second Notice of Default”) which purported to allege default by the Company under section 2.2(c)(i) of the Option Agreement as amended by the Company and Mercer BC on or about March 22, 2011.

    On December 29, 2011, the Company responded and advised Mercer BC that the Company disputes the validity of the Second Notice of Default, that it denies that such default has occurred and that it is submitting the question to arbitration.

    37


    On January 9, 2012, the Company filed a notice to arbitrate the Second Notice of Default with Mercer BC and the British Columbia International Commercial Arbitration Centre pursuant to Article 16.2 of the Option Agreement, whereby the Company is seeking: (i) a declaration that the Second Notice of Default is invalid; (ii) in the alternative, a declaration that the Company was not in default as alleged in the Second Notice of Default; and (ii) an order requiring Mercer BC to pay to the Company costs of the arbitration.
