1. Nature and Continuance of Operations

The Company’s principal business activities include the exploration of natural resource properties. The Company has acquired, directly and by way of the acquisition of Outback Capital Inc. (Note 3), interests in various mineral claims in Manitoba providing the right to explore. The Company had a working capital deficit of $63,882 at March 31, 2008 and has incurred substantial losses to date. The Company will require additional funding to meet its obligations and the costs of its operations.

Effective July 12, 2006, the Company changed its name from International Gemini Technology Inc. to Widescope Resources Inc.

The Company’s future capital requirements will depend on many factors, including costs of exploration and development of the properties, production, if warranted, and competition and global market conditions. The Company’s potential recurring operating losses and growing working capital needs may require that it obtain additional capital to operate its business. Such outside capital will include the sale of additional common shares. There can be no assurance that capital will be available as necessary to meet these continuing exploration and development costs or, if the capital is available, that it will be on terms acceptable to the Company. The issuances of additional equity securities by the Company may result in a significant dilution in the equity interests of its current shareholders.

The Company is dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, to obtain necessary financing to complete the development of its properties, and future production or proceeds from the disposition thereof. The financial statements have been prepared under the assumption the Company is a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue operations as a going concern is ultimately dependent upon attaining profitable operations. To date, the Company has not generated profitable operations from its resource operations and will need to invest additional funds in carrying out its planned exploration, development and operational activities. As a result, more losses are anticipated prior to obtaining a level of profitable operations.

2.   Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of consolidation
These financial statements have been prepared on a consolidated basis and include the accounts of the Company and its 65.42% owned subsidiary, Outback Capital Inc. effective June 30, 2006 (date of acquisition). All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

Mineral properties
The cost of mineral properties and related exploration and development costs are deferred until the properties are placed into production, sold, abandoned or management has determined there to be an impairment. These costs will be amortized over the useful life of the properties following the commencement of commercial production or written off if the properties are sold, allowed to lapse, or abandoned. Properties acquired under option agreements, whereby payments are made at the sole discretion of the Company, are recorded in the accounts at such time as the payments are made. It is reasonably possible that economically recoverable reserves may not be discovered and accordingly a material portion of the carrying value of mineral properties and related deferred exploration costs could be written off. 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 title defects.


2. Significant Accounting Policies cont’d

Estimates, assumptions and measurement uncertainty
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles 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. By their nature, these estimates are subject to measurement uncertainty and the effect on the financial statements of changes in such estimates in future periods could be significant. Areas requiring significant use of estimates by management relate to determining the carrying value of mineral properties and tax rates to calculate future income taxes.

Financial instruments
Effective January 1, 2007, the Company adopted the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants (CICA) Handbook Sections 3855, and 3861 financial instruments; Section 1530, comprehensive income and Section 3856, hedges. Section 3855 prescribes when a financial instrument is to be recognized on the balance sheet and at what amount. Under Section 3855, financial instruments must be classified into one of five categories: held-for-trading, held-to-maturity, loans and receivables, available-for-sale financial assets, or other financial liabilities. All financial instruments, including derivatives, are measured at the balance sheet date at fair value except for loans and receivables, held-to-maturity investments, and other financial liabilities which are measured at amortized cost.

These standards have been applied prospectively. The adoption of these standards has not resulted in any adjustments to the carrying amounts of financial assets and financial liabilities at January 1, 2007.

The Company does not have any items that would cause comprehensive loss to be different than net loss of the year ended December 31, 2007.

The Company’s financial instruments consist of cash, receivables, and accounts payable and accrued liabilities. Unless otherwise noted, it is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant interest, currency or credit risks arising from these financial instruments. The fair value of these financial instruments approximates their carrying values, unless otherwise noted.

The Company has determined that it does not have derivatives or embedded derivatives.

Equipment is recorded at cost. Amortization is calculated using the following annual rate, which is estimated to match the useful lives of the asset:

Computer hardware 30% declining balance

Equipment used in exploration activities, where substantially all the economic life or value of the asset is expected to be derived from a specific project, is accounted for as dedicated assets and included as a separate category within the costs allocated to the related exploration stage mineral interests. Amortization for dedicated assets are provided over the estimated lives based on utilization and is recorded as deferred exploration costs of the related project.

2. Significant Accounting Policies cont’d

Loss per share
The loss per share figures are calculated using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the respective fiscal years. The calculation of loss per share figures using the Treasury Stock Method considers the potential exercise of outstanding share purchase options and warrants or other contingent issuances to the extent each option, warrant or contingent issuance was dilutive. For the years presented, diluted loss per share is equal to basic loss per share as the conversions are anti-dilutive.

Cash and cash equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

Impairment of long-lived assets
The Company follows the recommendations of the CICA Handbook Section 3063, “Impairment of Long-Lived Assets”. Section 3063 establishes standards for recognizing, measuring and disclosing impairment of long-lived assets held for use. The Company conducts its impairment test on long-lived assets when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. Impairment is recognized when the carrying amount of an asset to be held and used exceeds the undiscounted future net cash flows expected from its use and disposal. If there is impairment, the impairment amount is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value, calculated using discounted cash flows when quoted market prices are not available.

Income taxes
The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method, whereby future tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future income tax consequences attributable to differences between the carrying values of the asset and liabilities and their respective income tax bases. Future income tax assets and liabilities are measured using substantively enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on future income taxes and liabilities of a change in rates is included in operations in the period that includes the substantive enactment date. Where the probability of a realization of a future income tax asset is more likely than not, a valuation allowance is recorded.

Stock-based compensation
The Company applies the fair value method of valuing all grants of stock options. All stock options granted are accounted for as a capital transaction at the time of the grant with the related fair values being reflected as contributed surplus in shareholders’ equity. The fair value of options granted is estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model incorporating assumptions regarding risk-free interest rates, dividend yield, volatility factor of the expected market price of the Company’s stock, and a weighted average expected life of the options. The estimated fair value of the options is recorded over the options’ vesting period. Any consideration paid on the exercise of stock options is credited to share capital.

New accounting pronouncements

In June 2007, the CICA amended Handbook Section 1400, “General Standards of Financial Statement Presentation”, which requires management to make an assessment of Company’s ability to continue as a going-concern. When financial statements are not prepared on a going-concern basis, that fact shall be disclosed together with the basis on which the financial statements are prepared and the reason why the Company is not considered a going-concern.


2. Significant Accounting Policies cont’d

New accounting pronouncements cont’d

The new section is effective for years beginning on or after January 1, 2008. The Company is in the process of assessing the impact of this new section on its consolidated financial statements.

International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”)
In 2006, the Canadian Accounting Standards Board (“AcSB”) published a new strategic plan that will significantly affect financial reporting requirements for Canadian companies. The AcSB strategic plan outlines the convergence of Canadian generally accepted accounting principles with IFRS over an expected five year transitional period. In February 2008, the AcSB announced that 2011 is the changeover date for publicly-listed companies to use IFRS, replacing Canada’s own generally accepted accounting principles. The date is for interim and annual financial statements relating to fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. The transition date of January 1, 2011 will require the restatement for comparative purposes of amounts reported by the Company for the year ended December 31, 2010. While the Company has begun assessing the adoption of IFRS for 2011, the financial reporting impact of the transition to IFRS cannot be reasonably estimated at this time.

Capital Disclosures
In December 2006, the CICA issued Section 1535 which specifies the disclosure of information that enables users of an entity’s financial statements to evaluate its objectives, policies and processes for managing capital, summary quantitative data about what the entity manages as capital, whether it has complied with any capital requirements and, if it has not complied, the consequences on non-compliance. The mandatory effective date is for annual and interim financial statements for years beginning on or after October 1, 2007. This new requirement must be adopted by the Company effective January 1, 2008.

Financial Instruments Disclosures and Financial Instruments Presentation
Sections 3862 and 3863 will replace Section 3861, Financial Instruments Disclosure and Presentation, revising and enhancing disclosure requirements while carrying forward its presentation requirements. These new Sections will place increased emphasis on disclosure about the nature and extent of risk arising from financial instruments and how the entity manages those risks. The mandatory effective date is for annual and interim financial statements for years beginning on or after October 1, 2007. The Company will begin application of these sections effective January 1, 2008. It is not anticipated that the adoption of these new accounting standards will impact the amounts reported in the Company’s financial statements as they related primarily to disclosure.


3. Acquisition of Outback Capital Inc. dba Pinefalls Gold (“PFG”)

In April 2005, the Company entered into a subscription agreement to invest $200,000 into Outback Capital Inc. dba Pinefalls Gold (“PFG”), a private Alberta company with certain directors and a principal shareholder of PFG in common with the Company. PFG is an exploration company with mining claims located in the area of Bissett, Manitoba. Pursuant to the subscription, the Company invested $90,000 in exchange for 1.8 million units during 2005 and an additional $110,000 in exchange for 2.2 million units in 2006 of PFG at $0.05 per unit with each unit comprised of one common share and one share purchase warrant to purchase an additional common share at $0.075 for a period of two years. Without the exercise of the warrants, the Company purchased approximately 37% of the common shares of PFG. As at June 30, 2006, the Company had invested $200,000 in exchange for 4 million units under this subscription agreement.

In addition, the Company entered into a share exchange agreement with one of the principal shareholders of PFG, who is also a director of the Company, under which the Company acquired a further 3 million common shares of PFG in exchange for one million common shares of the Company at a value of $150,000. As a result of the share exchange agreement, the director in common no longer had an ownership interest in PFG.

The Company completed the transactions above effective June 30, 2006; and as at March 31, 2008 the Company owned 65.42% of the common shares of PFG.

The Pinefalls Gold mining property is subject to a 2% royalty based on the gross cash proceeds received from the sale of minerals, less the cost of smelting, refining, freight, insurance and other related costs, and the cost of marketing and sale of minerals derived from PFG properties. The royalty will be calculated on a cumulative basis and will be payable in cash by the Company within 180 days of each fiscal year end of the Company.
