1 Metmar Tin Play February 2013

2 Metmar Tin Portfolio Alphamin Resources (Congo)
Metmar holds 9,935,000 shares in Alphamin (+-8.8%) Alphamin shares in issue - 103,444,571 Options in issue - 4,150,000 Warrants in issue - 5,100,000 Kivu Resources (Rwanda) Metmar is a 32.4% shareholder in Kivu Resources Kivu Resources is the controlling shareholder in Gatumba Mining Concessions (GMC), which has exploitation rights to 3 concessions in Rwanda. Somima (Congo) Metmar has an exclusive 3 year tin offtake agreement with Somima

3 Bisie Project Location
Alphamin Resources  Bisie Project Location 5 permits covering 1,470 square kilometers MPC has full legal title Tenements 100% owned by MPC AFM recently acquired 100% of MPC Force majeure lifted on PR5266 which contains Bisie deposit Source: Alphamin Resources

4 Alphamin Resources (cont)
Bisie Tin Project Discovered in 2004 High grade tin mineralisation Ridge transgresses PR 5266 for more than 9km Mined extensively by artisanal miners to 80m below surface Unique style of mineralisation which includes high grade tin, copper, zinc, lead, silver and rare earth minerals Targeting >500,000 tonnes of tin metal Source: Alphamin Resources

5 Alphamin Resources (cont)
 Bisie Drilling Results Alphamin recently completed a 2,406m drilling programme (Stage 1) to test the true width and grades of tin mineralisation at both target areas. Best results included: 2.26% Sn from 47.65m including 8.55% Sn 2.21% Sn from 53m including 6.27% Sn 3.15% Sn from 53m & 6.14% Sn from 80m 1.48% Sn from 71m including 5.76% Sn Source: Alphamin Resources

6 Alphamin Resources (cont)
 Bisie Drilling Results Copper and rare earth element (Cerium and Lanthanum) mineralisation is commonly associated with the tin rich zone. Significant results included: 1.01% Cu from 67m including 2.15% Cu 0.77% Cu from 53m including 1.67% Cu 0.1% Ce from 162m Drilling further identified a zone rich in silver, zinc and lead mineralisation. Best results included: 197g/t Ag % Zn including 18.08% Zn % Pb Source: Alphamin Resources

7 Kivu Resources Gatumba Mining Concessions (GMC) Location
GMC holds three concessions in Rwanda: Gatumba South ha (SnO2, Ta2O5-Nb2O5) Rugendebari ha (SnO2, Ta2O5-Nb2O5, WO) Bijyojyo ha (SnO2, Ta2O5-Nb2O5) Source: GMC

8 Kivu Resources (cont) GMC Exploration Activities
Extensive drilling program undertaken during 2009 9,860 meters of reverse circulation drilling Primary focus area Gatumba South concession JORC/SAMREC compliant resource on Gatumba South (only one area of Gatumba South concession has been drilled) Source: GMC

9 Kivu Resources (cont) GMC Work Programme
GMC recently re-capitalised with USD 7.4 million All creditors settled Plant and Machinery purchased: Earth moving & drilling Crushing, screening & gravitation Ancillary 100 tpm expected in H2 2013 Source: GMC

10 Somima Somima Location
Somima is in the process of applying for 9 concessions encompassing tin, tantalum, tungsten, gold, copper, etc. Mining activity on these concessions dates back to the 1950’s Somima recently re-commenced mining activities Somima is iTSCi registered. Await iTSCi export mechanism (bagging operation) Metmar will market Somima's tin globally on an exclusive basis Kivu Province (Alphamin) Maniema Province (Somima) Katanga Province (Manono) Source: Somima

11 Tin Price Evolution Supply and Demand
Tin has the lowest annual production of the base metals (+-360,000 tons compared to 20 million tons of aluminum) Global demand is expected to rise to an all time high of 366,000 tons in 2012 & is expected to rise 3-4% in 2013 Source: Alphamin Resources

12 World Tin Mine Production
Asian countries dominate production, very few developed world tin miners Source: ITRI/Greenfields Research

13 World Tin Mine Production (cont)
Asian mining in decline, replaced by developed world production Source: ITRI/Greenfields Research

14 Main Changes in Mine Production
Forecast change from 2010 – 2015, tpy Source: ITRI

15 Larger Undeveloped Tin Resources
***No mention of Central African Tin Belt (DRC, Rwanda)*** ***Highest reported grade 2.0% Sn, average 1.2% Sn*** Source: ITRI

16 Consumption, Application & Mining Methods
Source: ITRI

17 Why Metmar likes a Central African Tin Play?
Lowest cost quartile tin production Subject to final drill results from Alphamin, Bisie expected to be a high grade open pit mining operation Positive demand / supply fundamentals Decreasing yields and grades on existing deposits No major new high grade discoveries LME traded commodity with less investment fund manipulation Smallest volume of base metals traded on LME (380,000 tpa) Demand/Supply fundamentals prominent pricing factor on LME Minimal consumer manipulation Consumer manipulation significantly more difficult as compared to bulk traded commodities (e.g. chrome, manganese, iron ore, etc.) due to Metal Exchange pricing (KLTM and LME)
