8 April 2011 Samalayuca Copper Mineralisation Model 3 Principal Types of Possible Mineralisation

9 1.Original diagenetic stratiform copper mineralisation Lateral zonation of copper mineralisation Copper content ranges from 0.25% to 1% 1.Secondary structural enrichment Results from stratification Quartz vein remobilisation. Copper content ranges from 1% to 2% 1.Supergene Enrichment Surface lixiviation Enrichment along vertical fractures in oxididation zone. Enriched sulfides in zone. Copper content is 2% and higher Samalayuca Copper Mineralisation Three Types of Mineralization in Samalayuca Model

10 Typical mineralisation of chloritised quartzitic-arenite beds (20-100cm) with low grade mineralisation, with rarely observable copper sulfides dissemination. Malachite-chrysocola fractures with up to 1-2% Cu. Samalayuca Typical Stratiform Mineralisation

11 Samalayuca Supergene Enrichment Supergene (black zone) Enrichment is late geological phenomenon due to meteoritisation, where the original mineralisation is transfomed and remobilised lower in the host rock. Meteoric waters intrude along porosity and structural weak planes to attack original minerals, such as sulfides to transformed them into secondary minerals, such as hydroxydes- oxydes-carbonates). Secondary minerals are remobilised and concentrate along fault and fracture zone. Possibility of copper enrichment by circulation of copper ion (Cu++) absorbed by sulfides all along the descent. Geochemical change is more intense in reduced oxidation conditions. Supergene copper content over 2%

14 Recommendations for Samalayuca Property 1.Complete permitting process 2.Drill area chosen for heap leach pads to insure against covering mineralization zone 3.Start Pilot Mine 4.Complete the resource evaluation of the balance of the Kaity claim and if appropriate Kaity II

15 Meus 100% Camex Owned Mexican Company Escondida Located in Northern Sonora State of Mexico 70 K from Arizona border, 140 K from Tuscon Contains significant silver with gold, copper and lead Surface samples contained more than 100 ounces of silver per ton in progress—expected by end Q1 of 2012 Cerro Blanco 50 K from La Escondida is under option A gold, silver, copper project with a breccia pipe that strongly suggests a large porphyry deposit at depth

17 Escondida Escondida project is located in Central Sonora, Mexico, 140 K south of Tucson Arizona. Property covers 178 hectares with three major mineralization structures. Initial exploration campaign was begun in July 2011, with 116 samples taken as the mapping of the property was completed. The property show very interesting high grade values of silver, and considerable values of gold—12 samples had more than 300 grams of silver per ton and 7 had over 0.5 grams of gold per ton. An initial is in progress with expected completion in Q1 of 2012.

20 Escondida An Orogenic Gold-Silver Deposit

21 Historical Exploration & Mining Work Escondida Copper discovered in region in 1660 Carlin type deposits in area mined including gold at Santa Gertrudis and gold/silver at Las Chispas Known gold/silver quartz mineralizations close to Escondida include: Guijas—200 m north Renegada—6.4 km SSW San Vicente—11.6 km SSW Las Flores—16.5 km SW La Soledad—14.7 km NW El Otate—17.6 km NNW Merceded—24 km NE Unknown Substantial artisanal mining of gold and silver evidenced by small pits, mine dumps and stockpiles 2009: Mexican Company Prospection and channel chip sampling (170 samples) with values up 1.85 g/t Au over 1.2 meters wide 2011:Meus 116 rock chips, block and grab samples with values reaching: 300 oz per ton silver 3.99 grams per ton gold

22 Escondida Exploration Activities January 2011: Reconnaissance sampling in all historically mined zones in Escondida claims by André St-Michel October 2011: Regional mapping and sampling b y Jocelyn Pelletier, P Geo Novermber 2011: Visit and review of project by Jaques Marchand for initial study November 2011: Visit and review of project Michel Gauthier, PhD, P.Geo, metallergy and stratiform copper deposit specialist.

23 Escondida Epizonal Au-Ag-Sb Deposit Jamesonite (Pb 4 FeSb 6 S 14 )--Lead mineralization at Escondida indicates characteristic Au-Sb epizonal orogenic metallic association

24 Second type of mineralization target in Escondida: Gold-bearing quartz veinlets stockwork in competent gabbro Escondida

25 Kalgoorlie (Australia): A world-class orogenic gold deposit in such competent gabbro

26 Recommendations for Escondida Property First complete a ground magnetic survey to delineate the gabbro competent mass within the incompetent turbidite sequence Engage a geophysicist to carry out a 3D mag inversion that can be integrated in a 3D GIS software Plan a couple of diamond drill holes that would target: 1) pressure shadow zone in the gabbro mass and 2) probe a possible saddle reef staking below La Generosa, La Abundancia and La Discreta ‘veins’ These three steps can be completed relatively quickly and cheaply to determine if Escondida is indeed a large deposit or simply gold silver veinlets.

27 Cerro Blanco Sonora, Mexico, 45 K from Cananea The property is 297 hectares characterized by Au-Ag enargite veins with great potential for gold silver and copper. Historically there has been considerable exploitation of high grade veins. These mineralized veins are on top of a pebble breccia pipe suggesting a porphyry copper target that is a possibility for open pit exploitation. Initial sampling shows relatively high grade values for gold silver, and copper (5.45 g/tn Au, 0.7kg/tn Ag and 1% copper Project has similar characteristics to Butte (Montana), “the richest hill on earth.”

30 Significant Presence of Breccia-Pipe at Cerro Blanco Similar to Classic Model

31 Cerro Blanco has similar characteristics to nearby Cananea

32 Recommendations for Cerro Blanco 1.Complete a ground Induced Polarization (IP) survey of the property. 2.If IP anomalies are detected, especially below the en échelon veins system make a 3D IP inversion that can be integrated in a 3D GIS software for evaluation and exploration planning 3.Based on the 3D GIS evauuation drill one or two deep diamond drill holes to probe IP anomaly that would be coincident to an outcropping Cu- Au vein system.

33 Camex Mexican Properties Samalayuca Copper Creek Cerro Blanco La Escondida

34 Hard-Rock Minerals Hard-Rock Mineral Developments Inc is a private Canadian Mining/exploration and development company that is focused on a project that could lead to gold, silver, copper and zinc production in short time frames. Hard-Rock owns Mineral Copper Creek S.A. de C.V., a Mexican mining company that owns mining properties in Ayutla, Jalisco Mexico. Camex owns 30% of Hard-Rock Minerals

35 Copper Creek The property contains 4 existing, non-operating mines with near surface minerals that could be surface mined. Initial sampling and historical data from these mines indicate 350,000 to 500,000 tons of ore containing gold, silver and copper. In addition there is a significant ore dump, tailings pile and a 50 ton per day mill that could be renovated into use at a 200 ton per day capacity. Estimated production in less than 12 months. Hard-Rock is pursuing a JV with a local engineering company to process the ore dump and tailings pile Enero 2010
