STAR GOLD CORP.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2011




NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS


Star Gold Corp. (the "Company") was initially incorporated as Elan Development, Inc., in the State of Nevada on December 8, 2006. The Company was originally organized to explore mineral properties in British Columbia, Canada but the Company is currently focusing on gold properties in Nevada.


These financial statements are presented on the basis that the Company is a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business over a reasonable length of time. As of October 31, 2011, the Company had $75,589 in cash, negative working capital of $305,069, and stockholders’ equity (deficit) of $(72,970) and accumulated net losses of $993,030 since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt of the Company continuing as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Its continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing or refinancing as may be required, to develop commercially viable mining reserves, and ultimately to establish profitable operations.


Management's plans for the continuation of the Company as a going concern include financing the Company's operations through issuance of its equity and/or debt securities. If the Company is unable to complete its financing requirements or achieve revenue as projected, it will then modify its expenditures and plan of operations to coincide with the actual financing completed and actual operating revenues. There are no assurances, however, with respect to the future success of these plans.


Unless otherwise indicated, amounts provided in these notes to the financial statements pertain to continuing operations. The Company is not currently earning any revenues.


The financial statement represents those of an exploration and development stage company whose main focus is in the exploration and development of gold bearing properties.  The Company's main business is putting together land packages and mining claims that the Company perceives to have some potential for mineral reserves.  The Company then spends capital to explore these claims by drilling, geophysical work or other exploration work deemed necessary.  The business is a high risk business as there is no guarantee that the Company's exploration work will ultimately discover or produce any economically viable minerals.


NOTE 2 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Basis of Presentation

The unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, as well as the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements. In the opinion of the Company’s management, all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial statements have been included. Operating results for the three months ended October 31, 2011, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending April 30, 2012.

For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2011.

Cash and cash equivalents


For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.  


Restricted cash


Restricted cash represents investments in money market funds and are collateral for bonds held for exploration permits.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2011





Stock-based Compensation


The Company estimates the fair value of its stock-based compensation in the form of options using the Black-Scholes model, which requires the input of some subjective assumptions. These assumptions include estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (“expected life”), the estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock price over the expected term (“volatility”), employee forfeiture rate, the risk-free interest rate and the dividend yield. Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect the Black-Scholes calculation of the fair value of the options.  The value of common stock granted is estimated as market value at the date of grant.


Loss Per Share


Basic Earnings Per Share ("EPS") is computed as net income (loss) available to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through stock options, warrants, and other convertible securities.


The dilutive effect of convertible and outstanding securities as of October 31, 2011 and 2010, would be as follows:


 

 

 

 

2011

 

2010

Stock Options

 

             1,960,000

 

                175,000

Warrants

 

 

                790,000

 

             1,200,000

 

Total Possible Dilution

 

             2,750,000

 

             1,375,000

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


At October 31, 2011 and 2010, the effect of the Company's outstanding options and common stock equivalents would have been anti-dilutive.


Reclassifications


Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2010 financial statements in order to conform to the 2011 presentation.  These reclassifications have no effect on net loss, total assets or accumulated deficit as restated.


Accounting Changes and Error Corrections


Changes in accounting principle are reported through retrospective application of the new accounting principle to all prior periods. Errors in the financial statements of a prior period discovered subsequent to their issuance are reported as a prior-period adjustment by restating the prior period.  As described in Note 9, historical financial information included for the quarter and six month period ended October 31, 2010 has been restated.

Stock Issued for Services

Transactions in which common stock is issued for services are recorded at the fair value of the services received or the fair value of the stock issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.

NOTE 3 – MINING INTERESTS


The Excalibur Property Option Agreement (dated April 11, 2008) includes cash payments totaling $100,000 over five years and the issuance of 200,000 stock options based on “fair market price” over the same five-year period.  The Company has agreed to work commitments of $275,000 over five years.  Following the fifth anniversary, if commitments have been met, the Company shall receive a quitclaim for 100% interest in the property in consideration of a 3% Net Smelter Return royalty.   The schedule of annual payments, minimum expenditures and number of stock options to be issued pursuant to the Excalibur Property agreement is as follows:

The Longstreet Property Option Agreement (dated January 15, 2010) calls for initial cash payment of $20,000, issuance of 25,000 common shares and 25,000 stock options based on “fair market price” to MinQuest Inc.  The Option Agreement includes cash payments totaling $266,000 over seven years and the issuance of 175,000 common shares and 175,000 stock options based on “fair market price” over the same seven-year period.  The Company has agreed to work commitments of $3,550,000 over seven years.  Following the seventh anniversary, if commitments have been met, the Company shall receive a quitclaim for 100% interest in the property in consideration of a 3% Net Smelter Return.  


The Company incurred expenditures of $206,000 during the three months ended October 31, 2011 to satisfy certain required expenditure obligations under the Longstreet Property Agreement in advance of completion of exploration and drilling operations required.  The expenditure has been classified on the Company's Balance Sheet as Prepaid Exploration Expense and is reduced as invoices are applied to ongoing drilling and exploration activities.  At October 31, 2011, the balance of Prepaid Exploration Expense was $150,120 which the Company expects to recognize as exploration expense during the remainder of its fiscal year ending April 30, 2012.

Total mining interest cost capitalized under the issuance of options was $ Nil and $19,250 for the six months ended October 31, 2011 and the year ended April 30, 2011, respectively.  These costs are classified on the Company's balance sheets as mining interests.


The Company has established the 2011 Stock Option/Restricted Stock Plan.  The Stock Option Plan is administered by the Board of Directors and provides for the grant of stock options to eligible individual including directors, executive officers and advisors that have furnished bona fide services to the Company not related to the sale of securities in a capital-raising transaction.  


The Stock Option Plan has a fixed maximum percentage of 10% of the Company's outstanding shares that are eligible for the plan pool, whereby the number of Shares under the plan increases automatically increases as the total number of shares outstanding increase.  The number of shares subject to the Stock Option Plan and any outstanding awards will be adjusted appropriated by the Board of Directors if the Company's common stock is affected through a reorganization, merger, consolidation, recapitalization, restructuring, reclassification dividend (other than quarterly cash dividends) or other distribution, stock split, spin-off or sale of substantially all of the Company's assets.  


The Stock Option plan also has terms and limitations, including without limitations that the exercise price for stock options granted under the Stock Option Plan must equal the stock's fair market value, based on the closing price per share of common stock, at the time the stock option is granted.  The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes model and commonly utilized assumptions associated with the Black-Scholes methodology.  


On May 30, 2011 the Board of Directors authorized grant of 1,960,000 options to purchase shares of common stock of the Company to various directors, officers and consultants.  The options vested 25% upon grant, and vest 25% on each successive six-month period thereafter.  The fair value of each option award was estimated on the date of the grant using the assumptions noted in the following table:

NOTE 9 - CORRECTION OF ERROR IN PREVIOUSLY ISSUED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


As disclosed in the financial statements as of and for the year ended April 30, 2011, management has determined that certain errors were contained in the Company s financial statements for quarter ended October 31, 2010.

Since acquiring the first development property in Nevada, the Company had not been capitalizing the appropriate costs as mineral interest.  The Excalibur, Longstreet, and Jet properties call for annual lease payments, the issuance of common stock, and common stock purchase options, for the right to acquire the undivided right, title and interest in and to the properties.  In accordance with guidance contained in ASC 805 mineral rights to explore, extract and retain at least a portion of the benefits from mineral deposits are to be considered tangible assets.  The adjustments required to appropriately record these adjustments are material to the filed financial statements, thus management is restating the October 31, 2010 amounts.

The effect of the Company's previously issued October 31, 2010  financial statement is summarized as follows:

NOTE 10 - SUBSCRIPTIONS PAYABLE


During the three months ended October 31, 2011, the Company received $274,052 in deposits pursuant to the proposed issuance of a short-term debenture, anticipated to be convertible into shares of the Company's common stock.  Issuance of such debenture is estimated to be completed shortly after the effective date of the reverse stock split as discussed in Note 11.


NOTE 11 - REVERSE STOCK SPLIT


On or about November 30, 2011 the Company received written consents in lieu of a special meeting of the Board and of the Shareholders authorizing the Board to undertake a 1:6 reverse split of the Company's common shares. Pursuant to the reverse split, holders of Star Gold common stock, as of November 30, 2011 (the "Record Date"), will receive one (1) share of Star Gold common stock in exchange for every six (6) shares of Star Gold common stock held by the shareholder on the Record Date (the "Reverse Split").  Following the execution of the Reverse Split the number of issued and outstanding shares of Star Gold common stock shall be reduced from 63,260,000 to approximately 10,543,333. The Reverse Split will not be effective until the Company files a Schedule 14C with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), clears SEC comment on the 14C and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA") approves of the Reverse Split. 


On a proforma basis for the three months and six months ending October 31, 2011, the weighted average number of shares outstanding based on a 1:6 reverse split would be 10,517,790 and 10,505,562 respectively.   Pro-forma Earnings Per Share would be ($.02) and ($.03) for the three and six months ending October 31, 2011


NOTE 12 -SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


On November 1, 2011, the Company issued 150,000 shares of common stock to one vendor in lieu of cash payment for services provided.  These shares were valued at $0.06 per share or $9,000, representing the fair value of the shares at the date of grant.

Management’s Discussion and Analysis is intended to be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements and the integral notes (“Notes”) thereto for the fiscal year ending April 30, 2011.  The following statements may be forward-looking in nature and actual results may differ materially.

Corporate Background

The Company was originally incorporated on December 8, 2006 under the laws of the State of Nevada as Elan Development, Inc.  On April 25, 2008, the name of the company was changed to Star Gold Corp.   Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of precious metal deposit properties and advancing them toward production.  The Company is engaged in the business of exploring, evaluating and acquiring mineral prospects with the potential for economic deposits of precious and base metals.

  

The Company currently owns the rights to acquire up to a 100% mining interest (covering a total of 50 unpatented claims) in a mineral property (known as the Excalibur Property) located in the State of Nevada.


The Company has completed an initial exploration program on the Excalibur Property, which included Geological Mapping, Rock Sampling and Assaying.  Based on this analysis the Company has decided to move forward with the permitting of this property and associated drilling program.  The permitting was completed in June 2010 and the drilling program commenced the week of June 20th, 2010.[what was done in the drilling program?]


Star Gold Corp. currently leases with an option to acquire 60 unpatented mining claims (covering approximately 490 Hectares) located in the State of Nevada and known as the Longstreet Property. The Company is currently going through the permitting stage to allow it to commence drilling.


On July 7th, 2010, Star Gold Corp. acquired a 100% mineral interest in a Property located in the State of Nevada (approximately 300 kilometers northwest of Las Vegas) known as the Jet Property.


The Company has no patents, licenses, franchises or concessions which are considered by the Company to be of importance.  The business is not of a seasonal nature.  Since the potential products are traded in the open market, the Company has no control over the competitive conditions in the industry.  

Overview of Mineral Exploration and Current Operations

Star Gold Corp. is a mineral exploration stage company with no producing mines.   Mineral exploration is essentially a research activity that does not produce a product.  Successful exploration often results in increased project value that can be realized through the optioning or selling of the claimed site to larger companies.  As such the Company acquires properties which it believes have potential to host economic concentrations of minerals, particularly gold and silver.  These acquisitions have and may take the form of unpatented mining claims on federal land, or leasing claims, or private property owned by others.  An unpatented mining claim is an interest that can be acquired to the mineral rights on open lands of the federal owned public domain.  Claims are staked in accordance with the Mining Law of 1872, recorded with the federal government pursuant to laws and regulations established by the Bureau of Land Management  The Company intends to remain in the business of exploring for mining properties that have the potential to produce gold, silver, base metals and other commodities.

Compliance With Government Regulations

If the Company decides to continue with the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties in the State of Nevada it will be required to comply with all regulations, rules and directives of governmental authorities and agencies applicable to the exploration of minerals in the State of Nevada and the United States Federal agencies.

United States

Mining in the State of Nevada is subject to federal, state and local law. Three types of laws are of particular importance to the Company’s U.S. mineral properties: those affecting land ownership and mining rights; those regulating mining operations; and those dealing with the environment.

Land Ownership and Mining Rights.



Page 14 of 23






On Federal Lands, mining rights are governed by the General Mining Law of 1872 (General Mining Law) as amended, 30 U.S.C. §§ 21-161 (various sections), which allows the location of mining claims on certain Federal Lands upon the discovery of a valuable mineral deposit and proper compliance with claim location requirements. A valid mining claim provides the holder with the right to conduct mining operations for the removal of locatable minerals, subject to compliance with the General Mining Law and Nevada state law governing the staking and registration of mining claims, as well as compliance with various federal, state and local operating and environmental laws, regulations and ordinances. As the owner or lessee of the unpatented mining claims, the Company has the right to conduct mining operations on the lands subject to the prior procurement of required operating permits and approvals, compliance with the terms and conditions of any applicable mining lease, and compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations and ordinances.

Mining Operations

The exploration of mining properties and development and operation of mines is governed by both federal and state laws.

The State of Nevada likewise requires various permits and approvals before mining operations can begin, although the state and federal regulatory agencies usually cooperate to minimize duplication of permitting efforts. Among other things, a detailed reclamation plan must be prepared and approved, with bonding in the amount of projected reclamation costs. The bond is used to ensure that proper reclamation takes place, and the bond will not be released until that time. The Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, which is referred to as the NDEP, is the state agency that administers the reclamation permits, mine permits and related closure plans on the Nevada property. Local jurisdictions (such as Eureka County) may also impose permitting requirements (such as conditional use permits or zoning approvals).

Environmental Law

The development, operation, closure, and reclamation of mining projects in the United States requires numerous notifications, permits, authorizations, and public agency decisions. Compliance with environmental and related laws and regulations requires us to obtain permits issued by regulatory agencies, and to file various reports and keep records of the Company’s operations. Certain of these permits require periodic renewal or review of their conditions and may be subject to a public review process during which opposition to the Company’s proposed operations may be encountered. The Company is currently operating under various permits for activities connected to mineral exploration, reclamation, and environmental considerations. Unless and until a mineral resource is proved, it is unlikely Star Gold Corp. operations will move beyond the exploration stage. If in the future the Company decides to proceed beyond exploration, there will be numerous notifications, permit applications, and other decisions to be addressed at that time.

Competition

Star Gold Corp. competes with other mineral resource exploration and development companies for financing and for the acquisition of new mineral properties. Many of the mineral resource exploration and development companies with whom the Company competes have greater financial and technical resources.  Accordingly, competitors may be able to spend greater amounts on acquisitions of mineral properties of merit, on exploration of their mineral properties and on development of their mineral properties. In addition, they may be able to afford greater geological expertise in the targeting and exploration of mineral properties. This competition could result in competitors having mineral properties of greater quality and interest to prospective investors who may finance additional exploration and development. This competition could adversely impact on Star Gold Corp.’s ability to finance further exploration and to achieve the financing necessary for the Company to develop its mineral properties.

The Company provides no assurance it will be able to compete in any of its business areas effectively with current or future competitors or that the competitive pressures faced by the Company will not have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition and operating results.

Office and Other Facilities

Star Gold Corp. currently maintains its administrative offices at 611 E. Sherman Avenue, Coeur d' Alene, ID 83814.  The telephone number is (208) 664-5066.  In September the Company relocated its offices, from Post Falls, Idaho, but continues to rent office space, under the same terms that governed the lease of its previous office space, from Marlin Property Management, LLC (“Marlin”) which is a single member limited liability company owned by the spouse of the Company President and director, Lindsay Gorrill.  This office space consists of approximately 400 square feet, and beginning on January 1, 2012 Marlin will supply this office space to the Company at a monthly rental rate of $1500.  Star Gold Corp. does not currently own any physical or real property.

Employees

The Company has no employees other than its executive officers and directors as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.   Star Gold Corp. conducts business largely through agreements with consultants and arms length persons.

Research and Development Expenditures

The Company has not incurred any research expenditures since incorporation.

Reports to Security Holders

The Registrant does not issue annual or quarterly reports to security holders other than the annual Form 10-K and quarterly Forms 10-Q as electronically filed with the SEC.  Electronically filed reports may be accessed at www.sec.gov.  Interested parties also may read and copy any materials filed with the SEC at the SEC’s Public Reference Room at 450 Fifth Street NW, Washington, DC  20549.  Information may be obtained on the operation of the Public Reference Room by calling the SEC at (800) SEC-0330.

PLAN OF OPERATION

The Company maintains a corporate office in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.  This is the primary administrative office for the company and is utilized by Company President Lindsay Gorrill and Chief Financial Officer Kelly Stopher.  

The financial condition of the Company was positive during 2011 and the metals commodity markets were favorable for most of the year.  

The Company's plan of operations for the next twelve months, subject to funding, and the availability of contractors, is as follows:

·

Continue the advanced exploration and pre-development program for the Longstreet Project.  This work may include the following:

·

Initiate up to 10,000 feet of core drilling from the surface to better define the mineralization.

·

Continue to work with potential joint venture or capital partners to advance the project into the next phase of exploration and pre-production goals.

Primary focus of 2011 exploration activities at Longstreet will be to enhance the known and defined resource in the Main Zone, and initiate evaluation of some of the additional higher priority targets.  Auger geochemistry surveys should be conducted on the possible extensions of Main to the east and west. These can be undertaken by project geologist and field technicians already required for the proposed drilling program, and will involve very little additional expense.  Additional angle holes will be needed to finish upgrading the Main deposit and allow all historic vertical holes to be discarded from future resource calculations.


Drilling priority after definition drilling at Main should be on Main’s east and west extensions starting with the NE Main and North targets.  A total of 10,000 feet of RC drilling was proposed for Phase 1 drilling.


A revised budget for Longstreet Project 2011 is following.  Longstreet Project 2011, which was initially planned to consist of drilling to the 10,000 foot level, commenced October 23, 2011.  The Company expects drilling to be completed on or about December 15, 2011.   This initial phase constitutes drilling of 5,000 feet to satisfy minimum expenditure requirements under the Longstreet Property Agreement and also verify inference of economic resource on the Longstreet site.  The Company anticipates drilling the remaining 5,000 feet as part of an expanded program slated for Spring 2012.

Based on the recommendations of its consulting geologists, the Company is continuing its exploration program on the Excalibur Property and the Longstreet Property. At October 31, 2011, the Company had $75,589 cash on hand, and a working capital deficit of $305,069. As such, the Company will require substantial additional financing in the near future in order to meet current obligations and to continue our operations. Currently, Star Gold Corp. does not have any financing arrangements in place and there are no assurances that it will be able to obtain sufficient financing on terms acceptable to the Company, if at all.

Due to the lack of operating history and  present inability to generate revenues, our auditors have stated in their audit report included in our audited financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2011 that there currently exists substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Management believes it can source additional capital in the investment markets in the coming months and years.  The Company may also consider other sources of funding, including potential mergers or farm-out a portion of its exploration properties.  

Future liquidity and capital requirements depend on many factors including timing, cost and progress of the Company's exploration efforts.  The Company will consider additional public offerings, private placement, mergers or debt instruments.

Additional financing will be required in the future to complete planned exploration projects and expand operations to the production stage.  The Company is unsure whether additional financing will be available at the time needed or on acceptable terms, if at all.  If the Company is unable to raise additional financing when necessary, it may have to delay exploration efforts or property acquisitions, or be forced to cease operations.  Collaborative arrangements may require the Company to relinquish rights to certain of its mining claims.

Results of Operations

The Company has earned no revenue from operations in 2011 or 2010 and does not anticipate earning any revenues in the near future. Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage company and presently is seeking other business opportunities.

Total expenses for the three months ending October 31, 2011 of $161,510 increased 17% over total expenses of $138,064 for the comparable period ending October 31, 2010.  The increase in total expense is primarily a result of stock option expense recognized of $23,198 during the period and additional investor relations expense related to capital-raising efforts.  Exploration and consulting expense for the three months ended October 31, 2011 was $56,252, a decrease of $34,628 over the three months ended October 31, 2010 expense of $90,880.  The Company initiated a drilling program on the Longstreet property that is expected to culminate on or about December 15, 2011.  Consequently, comparable exploration activity to 2010 will be recognized in the quarter ending January 31, 2012.    

Management and administrative expense increased $28,485 to $48,581 compared to 2010 expense of $20,096.  The increase is a result of stock option expense of $23,198.  All other management and administrative expenses increased in aggregate by $5,287. Management expects these expenses to remain relatively constant in 2012 with the likelihood of increased travel and investor relations expense as the Company continues to raise capital.   The Company also expects an increase in management and consulting fees through the end of the fiscal year ending April 30, 2012 related to planning and execution of the next phase of the Longstreet drilling program.  

Certain Board members are also compensated on a per diem consulting rate to verify and assess technical information provided by outside consultants.  No director fees were expensed during the three months ending October 31, 2011.

Legal and professional fees increased $28,558 to $53,898 in 2011 from $25,340 in 2010.  This increase is a direct result of engaging an investment relations firm to assist in raising awareness of Star Gold Corp. and increasing liquidity in the market and also engaging a new audit firm with particular expertise in the mining industry.  Certain legal expense were incurred in the course of restating the Company by-laws, articles of incorporation and other related governance issues in order to facilitate raising additional capital for exploration.   Management expects accounting and audit fees to stabilize with ongoing familiarity.



Page 18 of 23






The Company does not expect significant increases in operating expenses for the upcoming fiscal year.  However, consulting and exploration expenses are expected to increase as the Company anticipates a significant drilling program on its Longstreet project during the remainder of calendar year 2011 and the fourth quarter of fiscal year ending April 30, 2012.

The Company utilized $26,600 in cash from Investing Activities to exercise its option on claims agreements and for certain capitalized mineral assets at its Longstreet and Jet projects, inclusive of a $21,600 bond to the U.S. Forest Service for drilling on the Longstreet property.

 As of October 31, 2011, the Company had cash on hand of $75,589. Since inception, the sources of the Company’s financing have been through offerings of its securities and through debt financing. Star Gold Corp. has not attained profitable operations and its ability to pursue any future plan of operation is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing. For these reasons, the auditors stated in their report to the Company's audited financial statements for the period ended April 30, 2011 and their reviewed statements for the period ended October31, 2011 that there is substantial doubt that the Company will be able to continue as a going concern.

Star Gold Corp. anticipates continuing to rely on offerings of its debt and/or equity securities in order to continue to fund business operations. Issuances of additional equity securities will result in dilution to the Company's existing stockholders. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete any additional offerings of its securities or that it will be able arrange for other financing to fund its planned business activities.

Disruptions in the credit and financial markets over the past several years have had a material adverse impact on a number of financial institutions and have limited access to capital and credit for many companies.  While access to capital has improved recently, these disruptions could, among other things, make it more difficult for the Company to obtain, or increase the cost of obtaining, capital and financing for operations.  Access to additional capital may not be available to terms acceptable to the Company or at all.

The audit opinion and Notes that accompany the Company's financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2011, disclose a 'going concern' qualification to the Company's ability to continue in business.  The financial statements for the period then ended have been prepared under the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern.  Such assumption contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As shown in the financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2010, the Company incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the year then ended, and at April 30, 2010, did not have sufficient cash reserves to cover normal operating activities for the following twelve months.  These factors raise substantial doubts about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

The Company's continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing as may be required, or ultimately to attain profitability.  Potential sources of cash, or relief of demand for cash, include additional external debt, the sale of shares of the Company's stock or alternative methods such as mergers or sale of the Company's assets.  No assurances can be given, however, that the Company will be able to obtain any of these potential sources of cash.  The Company currently requires additional cash funding from outside sources to sustain existing operations and to meet current obligations and ongoing capital requirements.  

The Company plans for the long term continuation as a going concern include financing future operations through sales of our common stock and/or debt and the eventual profitable exploitation of the Company's mining properties.  These plans may also, at some future point, include the formation of mining joint ventures with senior mining company partners on specific mineral properties whereby the joint venture partner would provide the necessary financing in return for equity in the property.
