3 The PhilippinesThe Philippines’ mineral wealth is due to its position on what is known as the “Belt of Fire”, a fault-line stretching across the islands of Luzon and Mindanao. The Belt passes directly through PhiGold’s area of interest.The Agusan District, East of Mindanao, where the Company’s assets are located, is one of the prolific gold districts of the Philippines.Mining operations are at surface and mining is being utilised using environmentally friendly gravitational concentration techniques.Project has been materially de-risked play with strong management and opportunity to expand asset base across highly mineralised underdeveloped region.JORC compliant resource base and opportunity to leverage acquisitions in an under-valued marketplace.
4 OverviewPhiGold was incorporated in 2008 to acquire, develop and mine precious metals, with a focus on the Philippines.The company has a JORC and NI compliant resource base of 271,932 ounces.Test production has generated approximately US$1m of gold sales to the Banco Sentral Ng Pilipinas.Good economics of scale, with the cost of production of US$600 an ounce at full production.Barobo has a NPV10 of US$78 Million at full capacity.Experienced mining team with considerable experience in the Philippines.Further significant ‘blue sky’ assets under evaluation.Assessment of listing under way.
5 Current Production at Barobo Aggregate gold sales of $1 million since test production commenced from sale of 755 ouncesRecent equipment upgrade to 100 tonnes per hour completed rated capacity and successfully tested with test pit oreApprovals to mine first main pit at Barobo pending government approval. Further funding might be required depending on outcome of discussionsPotential to increase capacity and output to 600 tonnes per hourEnvironmental clearance issued for the processing of up to 3m tonnes per yearProject to qualify for tax incentives due to environmentally friendly gravitational mining techniquesPhiGold has a 100% chemical free process

12 Strategic acquisition (“Stratos”) Stratos represents a 27 km2 concession area located near existing mine and on trend with major existing gold mines in the region.It is one of the most substantial mining concessions in the Philippines.Potential exists at Stratos for over 10 million ounces of Gold and 5 Billion pounds of Copper.Assay tests conclude high grade mineralization across the tenement.Current project NPV of US$129m.Stratos is a related party transaction with cross shareholdings and directorships for the management of PhiGold.
15 NPV of Stratos Assets“If we make the assumption that alluvial Au mineralization is present within 53% of the total tenement area (both Kandooo + Superfields), we can set a valuation of $72,008,798. With regards to the potential porphyry Cu/Au deposit, If we make the assumption that the average Cu grade is 0.7%Cu, we can valuate the copper deposit as $32,138,453 and the associated Au as an extra $9,376,151. These values add up to $113,523,402 for the entire project – and they are, in my opinion, realistic.“
