3 DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. While traditional non-renewable energy resources are finite, and traditional renewable resources have inconsistent power outputs, Geothermal resources produce in perpetuity with constant base load power 3

4 Highlights  Low risk geology: - vast sedimentary reservoir over 100s of square miles - Initial temperature and porosity/permeability data already available from existing well data  Small repeatable 4-5 MW projects in and area with the potential for 100s of MW of baseload electrical production  Extremely environmentally friendly – no carbon emmissions, silent, small surface footprint, inexhaustibe heat resource  “Off the shelf” turbine and drilling technology – mature and reliable  Profitable under SaskPower’s current Green Options Partners Program pricing – project selected in SaskPower’s 2011 lottery 4

5 DEEP Earth Energy Production Corp. Financings: 1. Current - Up to $1.5 million @ $0.20/share  Proceeds used for further exploration on our project (drill hole optimization, land acquisitions, and Project Manager hire, and general corporate expenses) 2. October – Up to $10M  A Second financing to be completed this fall in conjunction with a public listing  Proceeds for completing 2 wells to a depth of ~3000 metres in the Williston Basin, additional land acquisitions and general corporate expenses 5

6 Mission, Vision and Strategy: Mission: Developing geothermal resources to meet increasing energy needs with secure, clean and renewable energy Vision: To be the first Saskatchewan geothermal power producer by understanding that geothermal energy is: 1.Sustainable- a perpetual natural energy source 2.GREEN - zero carbon-based fuel consumption 3.Profitable - Can be the lowest cost of alternative power generation Strategy: Develop a portfolio of projects to reduce drilling risk and high front-end capital risk 6

7 Geothermal Worldwide Global installed geothermal power is 10,700 MW, in 24 countries, supplying 60 million people with renewable energy Overall potential global geothermal power capacity is 190,000 MW 7 Source: Islandbanki United States Geothermal Energy Market Report Mature technology

8 Geothermal Power Heat is recovered from water recycling through the system and converted to electricity Continuous heat supply means that with proper engineering geothermal systems can run indefinitely The ultimate renewable resource! 8

9 Geothermal power plants provide constant, baseload power as compared to wind or solar alternatives Silent Small project footprint - almost invisible on the prairie landscape Low CO2 emissions Geothermal advantages 9

17 Saskatchewan Energy Demands SaskPower is facing an unprecedented demand from customers – 6.7% increase in the next 10 years Environmental regulations will influence SaskPower’s choice of electrical generation options – Coal-fired generation may not continue as it has in the past… Current capacity is 3,600 MW ( incl. 469 MW purchased) SaskPower will have to rebuild, replace or acquire 4,100 MW of electricity by 2030 – no medium to long term plan for the “gap” What will fill this gap???? 17

18 Power Costs and Purchase Rates SaskPower announced in July that DEEP’s application for a 5.0 MW geothermal project located in Southeast Saskatchewan was selected in SaskPower’s Green Options Partners Program annual lottery The program streamlines power purchasing for small and medium-sized “clean power” producers that sell between 100 kilowatts (kW) and 10 megawatts (MW) of electricity, by providing a fixed price for all power produced under the contract. The energy tariff for 2012 is $98.02/MWh and increases at rate of 2% per year over the term of the contract 18

19 Investment Analysis 19 * This model does not include any potential debt financing. * Assumes a turbine efficiency rate of 7%. Turbine manufacturers are now claiming rates as high as 17% Best case: Base case: Worst case:

20 Summary: Low risk geology – huge sedimentary aquifer No major exploration costs – public data from oil and gas drilling exploration Low initial capital expenditure – Scalable and Repeatable Projects 100s of megawatts potentially available - baseload No carbon emissions Silent and minimal environmental footprint Inexhaustible resource – heat from the earth’s core Mature and reliable technology Possible >20% IRR - in perpetuity 20

21 Additional Potential What ifs… Leveraged financing More efficient turbines Government funding – SRED, etc. Resource is better than anticipated – hotter and better flow rates Oil and gas discovery Lithium discovery Industrial application or carbon sequestrian program Improved power purchase agreement 21
