Item 1. Business

Corporate History

We were incorporated under the name “Swifty Carwash & Quick-Lube, Inc.” in the state of Florida on September 25, 1997. On October 22, 1999, we changed our name from “Swifty Carwash & Quick-Lube, Inc.” to “SwiftyNet.com, Inc.” On January 29, 2001, we changed our name from “SwiftyNet.com, Inc.” to “Yseek, Inc.” On June 10, 2003, we changed our name from “Yseek, Inc.” to “Advanced 3-D Ultrasound Services, Inc.”  We merged with World Energy Solutions, Inc., a private Florida corporation, on August 17, 2005.  Advanced 3D Ultrasound Services, Inc. remained as the surviving entity and legal acquirer, and World Energy Solutions, Inc. was the accounting acquirer.    On November 7, 2005, we changed our name to “World Energy Solutions, Inc.” and merged with Professional Technical Systems, Inc.  We remained as the surviving entity and legal acquirer, while Professional Technical Systems, Inc. was the accounting acquirer. On February 26, 2009, we changed our name to “EClips Energy Technologies, Inc.”  For the purpose of changing our state of incorporation to Delaware, we merged with and into our newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary, EClips Media Technologies, Inc. on April 21, 2010, with EClips Media Technologies, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation.  Effective April 25, 2011, we changed our name to “Silver Horn Mining Ltd.” For the purpose of changing our state of incorporation to Nevada from Delaware and changing our name to “Great West Resources, Inc.”, we merged with and into our newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Great West Resources, Inc., on March 28, 2014, with Great West Resources, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation (the “Reincorporation Merger”). The share amounts set forth in this Annual Report on Form 10-K do not reflect the change in our authorized capital stock and issued and outstanding capital stock that occurred as a result of the Reincorporation Merger.  The Reincorporation Merger is described below in this Item 1.
 
Our Current Business

Commencing in 2011 we focused our business efforts on the acquisition and exploration of properties that may contain mineral resources, principally silver.  Our target properties are those that have been the subject of historical exploration or previous production.  We have filed federal unpatented lode mining claims in Arizona for the purpose of exploration and potential development of silver on a total of approximately 1,000 acres.  We plan to review opportunities to acquire additional mineral properties with current or historic silver mineralization with meaningful exploration potential.

Our properties do not have any reserves.  We plan to conduct exploration programs on these properties with the objective of ascertaining whether any of our properties contain concentrations of silver that are prospective for mining.

The 76 Property is located in Yavapai County, Arizona, 50 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona.  The property consists of 36 federal unpatented lode mining claims on Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) land totaling 720 acres that we acquired pursuant to a quitclaim deed that we purchased from Can-Am Gold Corp., an entity controlled by Mr. Bleak, for $10.00 on April 26, 2011.  To maintain the mining claims in good standing, we must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus a total annual fee of approximately $45 for all of the claims to record a notice of intent to hold the claims in Yavapai County.  We are currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development.  The 76 Property does not currently have any reserves.  All activities undertaken and currently proposed at the 76 Property are exploratory in nature.

The COD Property is located in Mohave County, Arizona, 7 miles southwest of Chloride, Arizona.  The property consists of 14 federal unpatented lode mining claims on BLM land totaling approximately 280 acres.  We filed the claims with the BLM on July 1, 2011.  To maintain the mining claims in good standing, we must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus a total annual fee of approximately $14 for all of the claims to record a notice of intent to hold the claims in Mohave County.  We are currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping, performing a grid survey and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development.  The COD Property does not currently have any reserves.  All activities undertaken and currently proposed at the COD Property are exploratory in nature.

 
Competition

We do not compete directly with anyone for the exploration or removal of silver and other minerals from our property as we hold all interest and rights to the claims.  Readily available commodities markets exist in the U.S. and around the world for the sale of minerals. Therefore, we will likely be able to sell silver and other minerals that we are able to recover.  We will be subject to competition and unforeseen limited sources of supplies in the industry in the event spot shortages arise for supplies such as dynamite, and certain equipment such as bulldozers and excavators that we will need to conduct exploration. If we are unsuccessful in securing the products, equipment and services we need we may have to suspend our exploration plans until we are able to secure them.

Compliance with Government Regulation

We are required to comply with all regulations, rules and directives of governmental authorities and agencies applicable to the exploration of minerals in the United States generally. We are also subject to the regulations of the BLM.

We are required to pay annual maintenance fees to the BLM to keep our federal lode mining claims in good standing. The maintenance period begins at noon on September 1 through the following September 1 and payments are due by the first day of the maintenance period.  The annual fee is $140 per claim.

Future exploration drilling on any of our properties that consist of BLM land will require us to either file a Notice of Intent or a Plan of Operations with the BLM, depending upon the amount of new surface disturbance that is planned. A Notice of Intent is for planned surface activities that anticipate less than five acres of surface disturbance, and usually can be obtained within a 30 to 60 day time period. A Plan of Operations will be required if there is greater than five acres of new surface disturbance involved with the planned exploration work. A Plan of Operations can take several months to be approved, depending on the nature of the intended work, the level of reclamation bonding required, the need for archeological surveys, and other factors as may be determined by the BLM.  Permits to drill are also required from the Arizona Department of Water Resources.

Research and Development

We did not expend funds for research and development costs in fiscal 2012 and 2013.

Employees

We currently have one full time employee, Patrick Avery, who is also our Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary.  Mr. Avery was appointed on January 21, 2014.  
 
On April 3, 2011 we entered into a consulting agreement with Daniel Bleak, a former officer and director, that terminated on June 30, 2011.  On June 1, 2011, we entered into a one year services and employee leasing agreement with MJI Resource Management Corp. pursuant to which it made available to us six of its employees, including Mr. Bleak, for the purpose of performing management, operations, legal, accounting and resource location services.  Mr. Eckersley, one of our former directors, served as the President of MJI Resource Management Corp. from May 18, 2011 through September 30, 2011.  One of our former employees whom we compensated through the services and employee leasing agreement served as the president of MJI Resource Management Corp. from October 1, 2011 through December 5, 2012.
 
Compliance with Government Regulation
 
        Various levels of governmental controls and regulations address, among other things, the environmental impact of mineral exploration and mineral processing operations and establish requirements for decommissioning of mineral exploration properties after operations have ceased. With respect to the regulation of mineral exploration and processing, legislation and regulations in various jurisdictions establish performance standards, air and water quality emission standards and other design or operational requirements for various aspects of the operations, including health and safety standards. Legislation and regulations also establish requirements for decommissioning, reclamation and rehabilitation of mineral exploration properties following the cessation of operations and may require that some former mineral properties be managed for long periods of time after exploration activities have ceased.

 
Our exploration activities are subject to various levels of federal and state laws and regulations relating to protection of the environment, including requirements for closure and reclamation of mineral exploration properties. Some of the laws and regulations include the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, the National Environmental Policy Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and all related state laws in Arizona. Additionally, our property is subject to the federal General Mining Law of 1872, which regulates how mineral claims on federal lands are obtained.

Convertible Debentures and Warrants

Between December 2009 and June 2010 we entered into various securities purchase agreements with accredited investors pursuant to which we agreed to issue an aggregate of $1,025,000 of our 6% convertible debentures for an aggregate purchase price of $1,025,000. The debentures had an interest rate of 6% per annum and matured two years from the dates of issuance. The debentures were convertible at the option of the holder at any time into shares of common stock, at a conversion price equal to the lesser of (i) $0.025 per share or (ii) until the 18 month anniversary of the debenture, the lowest price paid per share or the lowest conversion price per share in a subsequent sale of our equity and/or convertible debt securities paid by investors after the date of the debenture. In connection with the agreements, the investors received an aggregate of 41,000,000 warrants to purchase shares of our common stock. The warrants are exercisable for a period of five years from the dates of issuance at an exercise price of $0.025, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. Warrant holders may exercise the warrant on a cashless basis if the fair market value (as defined in the warrant) of one share of common stock is greater than the initial exercise price.

On February 29, 2012, we entered into note purchase agreements with certain investors whereby we sold an aggregate of $105,882   of convertible promissory notes at an aggregate purchase price of $90,000. These investors included Daniel Bleak, a former officer and director, and several of the Company’s existing shareholders. The notes matured on February 28, 2013. We acknowledged and agreed that the notes were issued at an original issue discount. No regularly scheduled interest payments were paid on this note.  

On May 9, 2012 we entered into securities purchase agreement with an accredited investor pursuant to which we agreed to issue $37,500 of our 6% two-year convertible debentures for an aggregate purchase price of $37,500. The debenture had an interest rate of 6% per annum. The debenture was convertible at the option of the holder at any time into shares of common stock, at an initial conversion price equal to the lesser of (i) $0.05 per share or (ii) until the eighteen (18) month anniversary of the debenture, the lowest price paid per share or the lowest conversion price per share in a subsequent sale of the Company’s equity and/or convertible debt securities paid by investors after the date of the debenture. In connection with the agreement, the investor received a warrant to purchase 750,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The warrant is exercisable for a period of five years from the date of issuance at an initial exercise price of $0.05, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The investor may exercise the warrant on a cashless basis if the fair market value (as defined in the warrant) of one share of common stock is greater than the initial exercise price.

On November 8, 2013, the Company entered into note amendment agreements   with each of the holders of the Company’s notes and debentures pursuant to which the parties agreed to change the conversion price of the securities to $0.03 per share from $0.05 per share.  Also on November 8, 2013, the Company issued an aggregate of 8,112,733 shares of common stock in connection with the conversion of each of the amended securities at the new conversion price.   As of December 31, 2013, the Company had no outstanding debentures or promissory notes.

The Reincorporation Merger

On January 21, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve a change in domicile from Delaware to Nevada (the “Reincorporation”) and recommended the Reincorporation to the company’s stockholders for their approval. On January 21, 2014, the holders of in excess of 90% of the outstanding voting stock consented in writing to approve the Reincorporation. The Reincorporation was consummated on March 28, 2014 pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) between the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Great West Resources, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Great West”), pursuant to which the Company merged with and into Great West, with Great West as the surviving corporation that operates under the name “Great West Resources, Inc.” Following the closing of the Reincorporation Merger, the Company’s corporate existence is governed by the laws of the State of Nevada and the Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation, as amended to date, of Great West  Resources, Inc.
 
 
On the effective date of the Reincorporation Merger:
 
(a) Each share of Silver Horn Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective date changed and converted into 1/150th fully paid and nonassessable shares of Great West Common Stock;
 
(b) Each share of Silver Horn Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective date changed and converted into 1/150th fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Great West Series A Preferred Stock;
 
(c) Each share of Silver Horn Series D Preferred Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective date changed and converted into 1/150th fully paid and nonassessable shares of the Great West Series B Preferred Stock;
 
(d) All options to purchase shares of Silver Horn Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective date  changed and converted into equivalent options to purchase 1/150th of a share of Great West Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.0001 per share;   
 
 (e) All warrants to purchase shares of Silver Horn Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective date changed and converted into equivalent warrants to purchase 1/150th of a share of Great West Common Stock at 150 times the exercise price of such converted warrants; and
 
(f) Each share of Great West Common Stock issued and outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Date were canceled and returned to the status of authorized but unissued Great West Common Stock.
 
In lieu of issuing fractional shares of Great West Common Stock or Great West Preferred Stock or options or warrants to purchase fractional shares of Great West Common Stock, to the extent that a holder’s shares of Silver Horn Common Stock, Silver Horn Series A Preferred Stock or Silver Horn Series D Preferred Stock, when aggregated together with shares of the same class, did not convert to whole shares of Great West Common Stock, Great West Series A Preferred Stock or Great West Series B Preferred Stock, as applicable, the resulting fractional shares were rounded up to the closest full share, and all options and warrants to purchase fractional shares of Great West Common Stock were rounded up to purchase the next full share of Great West Common Stock.  
 
Upon consummation of the Reincorpiration Merger and resulting Reincorporation, the daily business operations of Great West continued as they were conducted by the Company immediately prior to the Merger, at the Company’s principal executive offices at 18 Falcon Hills Drive, Colorado 80126.  The officers and directors of the Company became the officers and directors of Great West. 
 
The Reincorporation effected a change in the legal domicile of the Company to Nevada from Delaware. However, the Reincorporation did not result in any change in the Company’s business, management, location of its principal executive offices, assets, liabilities or net worth (other than as a result of the costs incident to the Reincorporation, which are immaterial).

Item 2. Description of Property.

General

We moved to our current facilities to Highlands Ranch, Colorado in January 2014.  Our facilities are provided to us at no cost by our current Chief Executive Officer.   We believe that these facilities are adequate to meet our current needs.   Prior to January 2014, our facilities were located in Apache Junction, Arizona and were provided to us at no cost by MJI Resources Corp. Mr. Eckersley, one of our former directors, served as the President of MJI Resources Corp. from May 18, 2011 through September 30, 2011.  Our former operations manager served as the president of MJI Resources Corp. from October 1, 2011 through December 5, 2012. 

The 76 Property

The 76 Property is located in Yavapai County, Arizona, 50 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona.  The property can be accessed from Phoenix by taking Interstate 17 north and exiting on Table Mesa Road.  From there, proceed west on unimproved roads for approximately 14 miles. The property consists of 36 federal unpatented lode mining claims on BLM land totaling 720 acres that we acquired pursuant to a quitclaim deed that we purchased from Can-Am Gold Corp. for $10.00 on April 26, 2011.  To maintain the mining claims in good standing, we must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus a total annual fee of approximately $45 for all of the claims to record a notice of intent to hold the claims in Yavapai County.  We are currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development.

With regard to the unpatented lode mining claims, future exploration drilling will require us to either file a Notice of Intent or a Plan of Operations with the BLM, depending upon the amount of new surface disturbance that is planned. A Notice of Intent is for planned surface activities that anticipate less than five acres of surface disturbance, and usually can be obtained within a 30 to 60 day time period. A Plan of Operations will be required if there is greater than five acres of new surface disturbance involved with the planned exploration work. A Plan of Operations can take several months to be approved, depending on the nature of the intended work, the level of reclamation bonding required, the need for archeological surveys, and other factors as may be determined by the BLM.

The 76 Property does not currently have any reserves.  All activities undertaken and currently proposed at the 76 Property are exploratory in nature.
 
 

The COD Property

The COD Property is located in Mohave County, Arizona, 7 miles southwest of Chloride, Arizona.  The property can be accessed from Kingman, Arizona by taking by taking Stockton Hill Road north for 11 miles, turning west onto Quail Quest Road, and then following Coyote Run Road for 0.9 miles.  The property consists of 14 federal unpatented lode mining claims on BLM land totaling approximately 280 acres.  We filed the claims with the BLM on July 1, 2011.  To maintain the mining claims in good standing, we must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus a total annual fee of approximately $14 for all of the claims to record a notice of intent to hold the claims in Mohave County.  We are currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping, performing a grid survey and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development.

On September 18, 2011 we received a notice from John C. Cost claiming that, of these 14 claims, at least nine are situated overlapping his alleged preexisting claims, and requesting that we cease and desist from sampling or removing any ores from these properties. We believe Mr. Cost’s demands are without merit.  On March 16, 2012 w e filed a complaint against Mr. Cost in Mohave County Superior Court for quiet title and recovery of real property regarding the disputed mining claims.  The case is currently in discovery, and trial is set for August 20, 2013.

 
With regard to the unpatented lode mining claims, future exploration drilling will require us to either file a Notice of Intent or a Plan of Operations with the BLM, depending upon the amount of new surface disturbance that is planned. A Notice of Intent is for planned surface activities that anticipate less than five acres of surface disturbance, and usually can be obtained within a 30 to 60 day time period.

On February 26, 2009, we changed our name to “EClips Energy Technologies, Inc.” For the purpose of changing our state of incorporation to Delaware, we had merged with and into our then newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary, EClips Media Technologies, Inc. on April 21, 2010, with EClips Media Technologies, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation. Effective April 25, 2011, we changed our name to “Silver Horn Mining Ltd.” from “EClips Media Technologies, Inc.” pursuant to Section 253 of the Delaware General Corporation Law by merging a newly-formed, wholly-owned subsidiary of ours with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving corporation in the merger.  For the purpose of changing our state of incorporation to Nevada from Delaware and changing our name to “Great West Resources, Inc.”, we merged with and into our newly-formed wholly-owned subsidiary, Great West Resources, Inc. on March 28, 2014, with Great West Resources, Inc. continuing as the surviving corporation.   The share amounts set forth in this Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form 10-K do not reflect the change in our authorized capital stock and issued and outstanding capital stock as a result of the merger.

We focus our business efforts on the acquisition and exploration of properties that may contain mineral resources, principally silver. Our target properties are those that have been the subject of historical exploration or previous production. We have filed federal unpatented lode mining claims in Arizona for the purpose of exploration and potential development of silver on a total of approximately 1,000 acres. We plan to review opportunities to acquire additional mineral properties with current or historic silver mineralization with meaningful exploration potential. As a result of our focus on mineral exploration, we are considered an exploration stage company.

Our properties do not have any reserves. We plan to conduct exploration programs on these properties with the objective of ascertaining whether any of our properties contain concentrations of silver that are prospective for mining.

 
Recent Events

On January 21, 2014, Patrick Avery was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer, director and Chairman of the board of directors (the “Board”) of the Company upon the resignation of Andrew Uribe from all officer positions he held with the Company. Also on January 21, 2014, Glenn Kesner, the controlling stockholder of the Company and a former officer and director, was appointed as the Secretary of the Company. Mr. Uribe remains a director of the Company. In connection with the appointment of Mr. Avery, the Company intends to explore additional business opportunities and alternatives which may include the sale, disposition or suspension of its historic business operations.

On January 21, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors voted unanimously to approve the change in domicile from Delaware to Nevada and recommended the Reincorporation to the company’s stockholders for their approval. On January 21, 2014, the holders of in excess of 90% of the outstanding voting stock consented in writing to approve the Reincorporation. The Reincorporation was consummated on March 28, 2014 pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger between the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Great West Resources, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Great West”), pursuant to which the Company merged with and into Great West, with Great West as the surviving corporation that operates under the name “Great West Resources, Inc.”.

We had net cash used in operations of $20 during the year ended December 31, 2013. At December 31, 2013, we had a working capital deficiency of approximately $766,000. Additionally, at December 31, 2013, we had an accumulated deficit of approximately $49.0 million and stockholder’s deficit of $766,000. These matters and our expected needs for capital investments required to support operational growth raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible effects on recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from our inability to continue as a going concern.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Preparing financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue and expenses. These estimates and assumptions are affected by management’s applications of accounting policies. Critical accounting policies for our company include accounting for derivative liabilities and stock based compensation.

Stock Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the consolidated condensed financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

Pursuant to ASC Topic 505-50, for share-based payments to consultants and other third-parties, compensation expense is determined at the “measurement date.” The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the award. Until the measurement date is reached, the total amount of compensation expense remains uncertain. The Company initially records compensation expense based on the fair value of the award at the reporting date.
 
 
Use of Estimates

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the statements of financial condition, and revenues and expenses for the years then ended. Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates. Significant estimates made by management include, but are not limited to, the assumptions used to calculate stock-based compensation, derivative liabilities, debt discount and common stock issued for services.

Exploration Stage Company

The Company has been in the exploration stage since April 25, 2011 and has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations. The Company intends to focus on acquiring and exploring natural resource properties. Accordingly, the Company is an exploration stage company as defined in ASC 915 “Development Stage Entities”.

Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs

Costs of lease, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. The Company has chosen to expense all mineral exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the exploration stage. Once the Company has identified proven and probable reserves in its investigation of its properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, it would enter the development stage and capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be amortized, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When the Company has capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value. To date, the Company has not established the commercial feasibility of any exploration prospects; therefore, all costs are being expensed.

Results of Operations

Net Revenues.  We have not generated revenues during the year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

Operating Expenses.  Total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $573,793, a decrease of $4,096,409, or approximately 88%, from total operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2012 of $4,670,202. This decrease is primarily attributable to:

Payroll and stock based compensation expenses were $190,083 and $3,875,049 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, a decrease of $3,684,966 or 95%.  The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in operating activities and not paying any stock-based compensation during the year ended December 31, 2013.

Management fees were $225,000 and $300,000 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, a decrease of $75,000 or 25%.  The decrease was primarily attributable to the termination of the Services and Employee Leasing Agreement with MJI Resource Management Corp. in November 2013.

Exploration costs were $5,000 and $115,832 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, a decrease of $110,832 or 96%.  Exploration cost includes costs of lease, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties. The Company has chosen to expense all mineral acquisition and exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the exploration stage. The decrease is primarily attributable to the decrease in geologist, consulting and research exploration expenses as a result of limited working capital.

Professional and consulting expenses were $130,241 and $280,770 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, a decrease of $150,529 or 54%. Professional expenses were incurred for our audits and public filing requirements. The decrease was primarily attributable to a decrease in operating activities and regulatory filings with respect to the Company during the year ended December 31, 2013.
 
General and administrative expenses, which consist of office expenses, insurance, rent and general operating expenses totaled $23,469 for the year ended December 31, 2013, as compared to $98,551 for the year ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $75,082 or 76%. The decrease in general and administrative expenses is primarily attributable to the decrease in overall operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2013.

 
Total Other Income (Expense).   Our total other expenses during the year ended December 31, 2013 primarily associated with derivative liabilities, interest expense and  gain on settlement of debt.

Change in Fair Value of Derivative Liabilities and Derivative Liabilities Expense

We recorded derivative liability in connection with the issuance of convertible debentures and warrants. Change in fair value of derivative liabilities expense consisted of income or expense associated with the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities as a result of the application of ASC 815-40 to our financial statements. The Company recognized a derivative liability expense of $11,942 during the year ended December 31, 2013 upon issuance of the convertible debentures and warrants. The variation in fair value of the derivative liabilities between measurement dates amounted to a decrease of $32,614 and $160,740 during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. We recognized derivative expense of $0 and $174,128 during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The increase/decrease in fair value of the derivative liabilities had been recognized as other expense/income. The Company recorded derivative liabilities as a result of the issuance of the convertible debenture and warrants in May 2012.
 
Interest Expense, Net

Interest expense consists primarily of interest recognized in connection with the amortization of debt discount, amortization of debt issuance cost and interest on our convertible debentures. Interest expense was $120,575 and $127,483 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, a decrease of $6,908 or 5%. The decrease was primarily due to the maturity of related party notes in February 2013.

Gain on settlement of debt

We recognized gain on settlement of debt of $1,285,872 during the year ended December 31, 2013. On November 8, 2013, we entered into debt forgiveness agreement with Bond Media Group, Inc. and MJI Resource Management Corp., pursuant to which both companies forgave a total of $1,285,872 pursuant to outstanding invoices and all other debt incurred by us.
 
Loss from Operations

We recorded loss from operations of $573,793 for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $4,670,202 for the year ended December 31, 2012.

Net Income (Loss)

We recorded net income (loss) of $624,118 for the year ended December 31, 2013 as compared to ($4,811,073) for the year ended December 31, 2012. As a result of the factors described above, our income (loss) from continuing operations per share (basic and diluted) for the year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 were $0.00 and $(0.02) per share, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. At December 31, 2013, we had a cash balance of $0. Our working capital deficit is $765,832 at December 31, 2013. We do not anticipate we will be profitable in fiscal 2014.

 
We reported a net decrease in cash for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $20. We currently have no material commitments for capital expenditures. We do not presently have any external sources of working capital.
 
We do not have revenues to fund our operating expenses.  We presently do not have any available credit, bank financing or other external sources of liquidity. We will need to obtain additional capital in order to expand operations and become profitable. In order to obtain capital, we may need to sell additional shares of our common stock or borrow funds from private lenders. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining additional funding.  Additional capital is being sought, but we cannot guarantee that we will be able to obtain such investments. Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. However, the trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect significant amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. If additional financing is not available or is not available on acceptable terms, we will have to curtail our operations.
 
Operating Activities

Net cash flows used in operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2013 amounted to $20 and were primarily attributable to our net income of $624,118 offset by amortization of debt discount of $33,272, non-cash interest expense of $68,147, total changes in assets and liabilities of $592,929 offset by change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $32,614 and gain from settlement of debt of $1,285,872. These changes in assets and liabilities are primarily attributable to a decrease in prepaid expenses of $7,500, and an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $585,429.
 
Net cash flows used in operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2012 amounted to $192,527 and were primarily attributable to our net losses of $4,811,073, offset by amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs of $119,151, stock based compensation of $3,541,516, derivative liability expense of $174,128, total changes in assets and liabilities of $943,974 offset by change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $160,740. These changes in assets and liabilities are primarily attributable to a decrease in prepaid expenses of $32,446, and increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $911,528.

Financing Activities

Net cash flows provided by financing activities were $0 and $177,500 for the year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. We received net proceeds from issuance of notes payable of $127,500 and $50,000 from the issuance of preferred stock during 2012 period.
  
Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as stockholder’s equity or that are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to such entity.

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.

Management’s Conclusions Regarding Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as of December 31, 2013, the end of the year covered by this report, our management concluded its evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures.
 
Disclosure controls and procedures refer to controls and other procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures.

Our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all error and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. The design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

 
With respect to the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operations of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Based upon our evaluation regarding the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013, our management, including Mr. Avery, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective due to our limited internal audit functions and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act. Our management is also required to assess and report on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“Section 404”). Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011. In making this assessment, we used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control - Integrated Framework. During our assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013, management identified significant deficiency related to (i) our internal audit functions and (ii) a lack of segregation of duties within accounting functions. Therefore, our internal controls over financial reporting were not effective as of December 31, 2013.

Management has determined that our internal audit function is significantly deficient due to insufficient qualified resources to perform internal audit functions.
 
Due to our size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible. However, to the extent possible, we will implement procedures to assure that the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions will be performed by separate individuals.

We believe that the foregoing steps will remediate the significant deficiency identified above, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of these steps and make any changes that our management deems appropriate. Due to the nature of this significant deficiency in our internal control over financial reporting, there is more than a remote likelihood that misstatements which could be material to our annual or interim financial statements could occur that would not be prevented or detected.
 
A material weakness (within the meaning of PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 5) is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. A significant deficiency is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting that is less severe than a material weakness, yet important enough to merit attention by those responsible for oversight of the company’s financial reporting.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Controls

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended December 31, 2013 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act requires our directors and executive officers, and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our securities, to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of our common stock. A copy of each report is furnished to us.

SEC rules require us to identify anyone who failed to file a required report, or filed a required report late, during the most recent fiscal year. Based solely on a review of copies of such reports, we believe that during the year ended December 31, 2013, all Section 16(a) filing requirements were complied with on a timely basis except: Daniel Bleak (1 late transaction), Mohit Bhansali (1 late filing, 1 late transaction),  Glenn Kesner (1 late filing) and Andrew Uribe (1 late filing, 1 late transaction).

Code of Ethics

We intend to adopt a code of ethics that applies to our officers, directors and employees, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, but have not done so to date due to our relatively small size.
 
Board Committees

Audit Committee . We intend to establish an audit committee of the board of directors once we have satisfied the other initial listing standards for listing our common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market or another national exchange.  The audit committee will consist of independent directors, of which at least one director will qualify as a qualified financial expert as defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. The audit committee’s duties will be to recommend to our board of directors the engagement of independent auditors to audit our financial statements and to review our accounting and auditing principles. The audit committee will review the scope, timing and fees for the annual audit and the results of audit examinations performed by the internal auditors and independent public accountants, including their recommendations to improve the system of accounting and internal controls. The audit committee will at all times be composed exclusively of directors who are, in the opinion of our board of directors, free from any relationship that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment as a committee member and who possess an understanding of financial statements and generally accepted accounting principles.

 
Compensation Committee . We intend to establish a compensation committee of the board of directors once we have satisfied the other initial listing standards for listing our common stock on the Nasdaq Stock Market or another national exchange. The compensation committee will review and approve our salary and benefits policies, including compensation of executive officers. The compensation committee will also administer our stock option plans and recommend and approve grants of stock options under such plans.

(An Exploration Stage Company) as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related statements of income, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and for the period from April 25, 2011 (inception of exploration stage) through December 31, 2013. Silver Horn Mining Ltd.’s management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Silver Horn Mining Ltd. (An Exploration Stage Company) as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and for the period from April 25, 2011 (inception of exploration stage) through December 31, 2013, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred operating losses, has incurred negative cash flows from operations and has a working capital deficit. These and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plan regarding these matters is also described in Note 2 to the financial statements. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

SILVER HORN MINING LTD. AND SUBSIDIARIES
(AN EXPLORATION STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2013
 
NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Organization and Description of Business

The Company was incorporated under the name “Swifty Carwash & Quick-Lube, Inc.” in the state of Florida on September 25, 1997. On October 22, 1999, the Company changed its name from “Swifty Carwash & Quick-Lube, Inc.” to “SwiftyNet.com, Inc.” On January 29, 2001, the Company changed its name from “SwiftyNet.com, Inc.” to “Yseek, Inc.” On June 10, 2003, the Company changed its name from “Yseek, Inc.” to “Advanced 3-D Ultrasound Services, Inc.”
 
The Company merged with a private Florida corporation known as World Energy Solutions, Inc. effective August 17, 2005. Advanced 3D Ultrasound Services, Inc. remained as the surviving entity as the legal acquirer, and the Company was the accounting acquirer. On November 7, 2005, the Company changed its name to World Energy Solutions, Inc. (“WESI”). On November 7, 2005, WESI merged with Professional Technical Systems, Inc. WESI remained as the surviving entity as the legal acquirer, while PTS was the accounting acquirer. On February 26, 2009, the Company had changed its name to EClips Energy Technologies, Inc. Effective April 25, 2011, the Company changed its name to “Silver Horn Mining Ltd.” from “EClips Media Technologies, Inc.”. The name change was effected pursuant to Section 253 of the Delaware General Corporation Law by merging a newly-formed, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company with and into the Company, with the Company as the surviving corporation in the merger. Following the subsidiary merger, the Company intends to focus its efforts on mining and resources, principally silver exploration and production. As a result of the Company’s focus on mineral exploration, the Company is considered an exploration stage company.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2013, a minority stockholder of the Company paid operating expenses on behalf of the Company for a total of $19,675. These advances are short term in nature, non-interest bearing and due on demand. Such amount is included in the caption accounts payable and accrued expenses as reflected in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2013.
 
Discontinued Operations

The Company’s former operations were developing and manufacturing products and services, which reduce fuel costs, save power and energy and protect the environment. The products and services were made available for sale into markets in the public and private sectors. In December 2009, the Company discontinued these operations and disposed of certain of its subsidiaries, and prior periods have been restated in the Company’s consolidated financial statements and related footnotes to conform to this presentation.
 
The remaining liabilities for  discontinued operations are presented in the consolidated balance sheets under the caption “Liabilities for discontinued operation” and relates to the discontinued operations of developing and manufacturing of energy saving and fuel efficient products and services. The carrying amounts of the major classes of these liabilities as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 are summarized as follows:

The Company has been in the exploration stage since April 25, 2011 and has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations. The Company intends to focus on acquiring and exploring natural resource properties. Accordingly, the Company is an exploration stage company as defined in ASC 915 “Development Stage Entities”.

Use of Estimates

In preparing the consolidated financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the statements of financial condition, and revenues and expenses for the years then ended. Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates. Significant estimates made by management include, but are not limited to, the assumptions used to calculate stock-based compensation, derivative liabilities, debt discount and common stock issued for services.
  
Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents. The Company places its cash with a high credit quality financial institution. The Company’s account at this institution is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) up to $250,000. At December 31, 2013, the Company has not reached bank balances exceeding the FDIC insurance limit on interest bearing accounts. To reduce its risk associated with the failure of such financial institution, the Company evaluates at least annually the rating of the financial institution in which it holds deposits.
 
Fair value of financial instruments

The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing US GAAP that require the use of fair value measurements which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.

ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, ASC 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities

Level 2: Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data

Level 3: Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

The Company did not identify any other assets or liabilities that are required to be presented on the consolidated balance sheets at fair value in accordance with the accounting guidance. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of the instruments.
  
Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs

Costs of lease, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. The Company has chosen to expense all mineral exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the exploration stage. Once the Company has identified proven and probable reserves in its investigation of its properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, it would enter the development stage and capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be amortized, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When the Company has capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value. To date, the Company has not established the commercial feasibility of any exploration prospects; therefore, all costs are being expensed. During the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company incurred exploration cost of $5,000 and $115,832, respectively. For the period from April 25, 2011 (Inception) through December 31, 2013, the Company incurred exploration cost of $277,195.  As of December 31, 2013, the Company has yet to establish proven or probable reserves on any of its mineral properties.
 
Stock Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the consolidated financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

Pursuant to ASC Topic 505-50, for share-based payments to consultants and other third-parties, compensation expense is determined at the “measurement date.” The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the award. Until the measurement date is reached, the total amount of compensation expense remains uncertain. The Company initially records compensation expense based on the fair value of the award at the reporting date.

Income Taxes

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.  A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amounts expected to be realized.
 
The Company accounts for income taxes under the provisions of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes. It prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attributes for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  As a result, the Company has applied a more-likely-than-not recognition threshold for all tax uncertainties.  The guidance only allows the recognition of those tax benefits that have a greater than 50% likelihood of being sustained upon examination by the various taxing authorities.
 
The Company classifies penalties and interest related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense in the Statements of Operations.
 
Related Parties

Parties are considered to be related to the Company if the parties that, directly or indirectly, through one or more intermediaries, control, are controlled by, or are under common control with the Company. Related parties also include principal owners of the Company, its management, members of the immediate families of principal owners of the Company and its management and other parties with which the Company may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests. The Company discloses all related party transactions.

Earnings per Common Share

Net loss per common share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260: Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260”). Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The computation of diluted net earnings per share for all periods presented does not include potentially dilutive common stock equivalents in the weighted average shares outstanding as they were anti-dilutive.  The computation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 excludes the common stock equivalents of the following potentially dilutive securities because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive:

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN CONSIDERATIONS

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. At December 31, 2013, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $49.0 million, and a working capital deficiency of approximately $766,000. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining additional capital and financing. Management intends to attempt to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances to that effect. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

NOTE 3 – MINERAL CLAIMS

As of the date of these consolidated financial statements, the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties and incurred only acquisition and exploration costs.
 
THE 76 PROPERTY
 
The 76 Property is located in Yavapai County, Arizona, 50 miles northwest of Pheonix, Arizona. The property consists of 36 federal unpatented lode mining claims on Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) land totaling 720 acres that the Company acquired pursuant to a quitclaim deed that was purchased from Can-Am Gold Corp. for $10.00 on April 26, 2011 (see Note 7). To maintain the mining claims in good standing, the Company must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus an annual fee of $10 per claim per year to Yavapai County.
 
The Company is currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development. The 76 Property does not currently have any reserves. All activities undertaken and currently proposed at the 76 Property are exploratory in nature.
 
THE COD PROPERTY
 
The COD Property is located in Mohave County, Arizona, 7 miles southwest of Chloride, Arizona. The property consists of 14 federal unpatented lode mining claims on BLM land totaling 280 acres. The Company filed the claims with the BLM on July 1, 2011. To maintain the mining claims in good standing, the Company must make annual maintenance fee payments to the BLM, in lieu of annual assessment work. These claim fees are $140 per claim per year, plus an annual fee of $10 per claim per year to Mohave County. The Company is currently planning an exploration program consisting of sampling, mapping and assaying to determine potential targets for drilling and further development. The COD Property does not currently have any reserves. All activities undertaken and currently proposed at the COD Property are exploratory in nature. On September 18, 2011, the Company received a notice from a third party claiming that, of the Company’s 14 mining claims on the COD Property in Mohave County, Arizona, 9 are situated overlapping this third party’s 7 claims that allegedly predate the Company’s claims, and requesting that the Company cease and desist from sampling or removing any ores from these properties. The Company believes that the third party’s demands are without merit and the Company may pursue any and all available legal actions and remedies.
