8 JULY 2011 THE STRATEGY  Identify, acquire and develop early stage mining opportunities in Brazil focused on two sectors: 1.Agriculture – Fertilizers (Phosphates) 2.Infrastructure – Construction Materials (Iron Ore) 8

9 JULY 2011 WHY BRAZIL?  IRON Iron capital of the world Home to some of the world’s best iron deposits  AGROMINERALS The leading agricultural state in the world  Agriculture industry represents 1/3 of its economy  world’s largest producer of orange juice, coffee and sugar, the second largest producer of soybeans Strong demand and weak supply for fertilizers  Raw material supplies imported for fertilizers in Brazil have risen from 36% in 1990 to 80% in 2010 1. 1 International Institute for Sustainable Development; "Food Security: The Brazilian Case" by Weber Antonio Neves do Amaral and Alessandro Peduto"Food Security: The Brazilian Case" by Weber Antonio Neves do Amaral and Alessandro Peduto 9

10 JULY 2011  World population is growing exponentially Brazil’s population has risen nearly 20 million in just the past decade  Food and infrastructure are humanity’s basic commodities UN Data suggests global food consuming population will grow by 75 million people per year Infrastructure is both a cause and a consequence of population growth WHY FOOD AND INFRASTRUCTURE? 10

11 JULY 2011 WHY FOOD AND INFRASTRUCTURE?  Strong correlation between population growth and demand for these basic commodities Brazil’s fertilizer sector has consistently surpassed growth in other countries during recent years With population increases, amount of arable land decreases for food production, requiring fertilizer stimulus to increase yields Brazilian government has called upon two of the country’s largest companies (Vale and Petrobras) to help provide fertilizer production, on top of metal and energy production 2 Vale recently announced projections for $150/tonne iron prices within next 5 years 3 2 Business News Americas: September 15, 2009 “Government wants Petrobras, Vale partnership for fertilizer production”“Government wants Petrobras, Vale partnership for fertilizer production” 3 Reuters Africa: July 7, 2011 “Vale sees iron ore above $150/T next 5 years”“Vale sees iron ore above $150/T next 5 years” 11

12 JULY 2011 GEOGRAPHICAL FOCUS NORTH EASTERN BRAZIL  Underexplored to date with recent large scale discoveries reported of late  Essential infrastructure in place or under construction  Good national road system  Transnordestina Railway line to be completed by 2013  Three large deep sea ports could serve future exportation from the area 12

13 JULY 2011 RUTH PHOSPHATE PROJECT PRIME LOCATION  100% wholly owned by Eagle Star Minerals  Over 80,000 hectares (200,000 acres) in size  In close proximity (within 150km) to a very large soy plantation producing 2.3M tonnes of soya beans annually* *Approximately 75% of all fertilizer consumption in Brazil is devoted to soy, corn, sugarcane and coffee  Within 10km away from Transnordestina railway (due to be completed 2013)  A water damn nearby and a high voltage transmission line of 500KV runs through the property 13

14 JULY 2011 RUTH PHOSPHATE PROJECT GEOLOGY  Eagle Star’s team identified, analyzed and staked the project directly from the government’s mineral department – DNPM  Project’s claims are located within a very favorable geological sedimentary environment (Paranaiba Basin) with optimal conditions to host a large phosphate deposit namely: marine cold water sediments, low sedimentation rates and concretionary sediments.  41 phosphate-bearing mineral concessions were chosen based on a vast sampling program that included 222 channel samples.  Results from the sampling program defined three different anomalous regions, with phosphorus values of 2-22%  The best results (Paes Landim area), come from siltstone outcrops with phosphate nodules. The siltstone formation is observed to be more than 12 meters thick based on existing outcrops. 14

15 JULY 2011 RUTH PHOSPHATE PROJECT DEVELOPMENT PLAN  More sampling over the next 3 months with specific focus on the Paes Landim area.  Intensive drilling program to follow up soon after.  Bring to production within the next couple of years. Raw phosphate rock can be crushed and applied directly to soils without intermediary processes or additives assuming a target agriculture market is within 200 km from mining site. Otherwise it could be floated or floated and concentrated to allow shipping to larger distances.  Target markets – agriculture in the states of Piaui & Maranhao, Brazil. 15

16 JULY 2011 ANGICO IRON PROJECT Iron Ore Project in World’s Leading Iron Country  Banded iron formation (BIF) outcrops on top of significant magnetic anomalies.  Covering more than 100,000 acres of mineral claims near the town of São Raimundo Nonato, Piaui state.  Large area to explore in same geological environment as recently announced major discoveries (800 Million Tons of 31% grade at Paulistana, 200 km away). 16

17 JULY 2011 ANGICO IRON PROJECT PROJECT TERMS  Eagle Star Minerals to earn 55% interest under the following terms: Completion of 3 consecutive exploration work programs over a 2-year period ($4 Million USD investment). Payment of incremental bonuses totalling $2.5 Million USD conditional to reaching certain milestones.  Upon completion of stage 3, Eagle Star Minerals has the option to acquire remaining 45% based on a fair market evaluation prepared by an independent 3rd party. 17



20 JULY 2011 MAGNETIC ANOMALIES CAVALEIRO HILLS  Eight (8) major magnetic bodies with coincident trends and some with banded iron formation (BIF) outcrops over a distance of approximately 8 kilometers. 20


22 JULY 2011 MAGNETIC ANOMALIES SERRA DO Ó HILLS  Six (6) very distinct major magnetic bodies with coincident BIF outcrops and trends over an area of 6 square kilometers 22


24 JULY 2011 MAGNETIC ANOMALIES SERRINHA HILLS  Seven (7) very distinct major magnetic bodies suggesting that all are related to a folded and repeated sequence of the BIF 24

25 JULY 2011 ANGICO IRON PROJECT GENERAL GEOLOGY  Iron formations have been identified on all three main claim blocks: Cavaleiro, Serrinha & Serra do Ó.  The iron mineralization is hosted in metamorphosed sequences of biotite schist, micaceous quartzite, gneiss and migmatite all of Archean age.  The Iron minerals comprise magnetite, hematite, martite, specularite and ferriferous amphiboles.  Excellent potential: The iron formation in Cavaleiro is traceable on the surface for 8 km, in Serra do Ó for 6 km and in Serrinha for 4 km. 25

26 JULY 2011 ANGICO IRON PROJECT  1 ST EXPLORATION STAGE RECENTLY COMPLETED Mapping Chip sampling Ground magnetometry survey Testing of BIF outcrops and trends by way of trenching on Cavaleiro block and 500m drilling on Serrinha and Serra do Ó blocks.  RESULTS Identification of substantial BIF outcrops and trends on all 3 major blocks along very long extensions Major magnetic anomalies coincident with BIF outcrops and trends Significant mineralization at depth and along strike Average iron grades range between 26% (Serra do Ó) 33% (Serrinha) and 52% (Cavaleiro) Fe 2 O 3. 26

27 JULY 2011 ANGICO IRON PROJECT OBJECTIVES  SHORT TO MID TERM Complete comprehensive mapping, sampling and ground magnetometer survey of the different concession areas. Advance with trenching and drill program of up to 5,000 meters on Cavaleiro block (to include also areas with lack of outcrops which could host additional, significant high grade iron mineralization). Start preparation of NI 43-101 compliant Iron Resource Estimate at Angico Explore opportunities with potential vend-in partners and/or progress project to production post NI 43-101  LONG TERM Continue building up iron resource on the portfolio be way of acquiring other iron assets with large resource potential 27

28 JULY 2011 SUMMARY  Highly experienced management team with over 100 years of geological experience  High level contacts and priority access to future acquisitions  At present, rights to 68 mineral claims totaling 130,000 hectares (nearly 320,000 acres)  High near-term phosphate production potential evidenced by early sampling and proximity to local market  Commercially viable phosphate percentages witnessed in early sampling  High iron ore potential evidenced by outcrops on top of magnetic anomalies.  Very good iron content and quality on main concession block.  Excellent infrastructure in region to move both projects to production level.  Projected strength in price and demand for both global fertilizer and iron markets.  Enormous potential not reflected in current market cap (CAD$10 million).  Comprehensive Investor Awareness campaign planned for 2011 to leverage corporate developments and exploration results to larger investor audience. 28
