The Creation of BSC Resources Ltd –Incorporated in November 2005 –Granted prospecting rights of 39000ha within 6 months (Currently have over 77 000ha) –Granted prospecting permit for historic Messina Copper Dumps and Oxide caps (September 2007) –Completed Scoping study on the Musina Copper Dumps and Oxide Caps (January 2008) –Burgesfort prospecting permit granted (Ex-Falconbridge Massive sulphide target) –Raised CAD$ 5million (South Africa, Canada and USA) to date
Strategic Overview Our Strategy To build a management team that possesses the ability to successfully convert exploration projects into valuable mining projects. Our primary focus is on Base Metals and Platinum group Metals (PGM’s). Our geographic footprint includes Botswana. The company is actively seeking opportunities that would allow it to capitalise on the 2009 deadline for conversion to New Order Rights under the MPRDA (“use it or lose it”). Our Mission To seek out opportunities where our involvement is crucial and where we can stamp our operational style on the operations, in the process creating a black controlled and managed Junior Mining Company. We intend to duel list BSC on both the Toronto Stock Exchange (‘TSX”) and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (“JSE”).
BSC Value Add Identify –Early cash flows (Musina Copper) –Potential for bulking up with step-out exploration (Insizwa Nickel) –Acquisition cost = Application process (Zeranza PGM and Burgesfort) Package –Comprehensive geological work –Involvement of previous owners and management Unlock –Efficient capital raising –Tax efficient structures –Access to global mining majors for blue sky JV’s –Distribute shares in producing assets to shareholders
Corporate Overview Share Capital – 2 340 000 Issued (As at May 2008) – 2 500 000 Fully diluted( As at May 2008) – 13 million Rand in treasury ( As at May 2008) Strategic Relationships –Nedbank Corporate – Bankers –PricewaterHouse Coopers – Accountants and Auditors –Adira Capital – North American Investor Communication (Canada & USA ) –Macleod Dixon – Corporate Lawyers ( Canada ) –Geo Mechanics – Drilling Contractors

His consultancy emphasizes on mining and Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) as well as Reserve Bank liaison.
BSC Highlights Insizwa Nickel – Large (~400 * 400 * 150 m) Induced Polarisation (IP) Anomaly detected at Ndzongiseni. Mapped significant strike length of gossans/sulphides at Horseshoe Lobe. Completed first phase of drilling at lower adit. Intersected deeper sulphide lens from upper adit. Sampled ~ 1500 soil samples to date. Dewatering large decline possibly exposing additional adit. Burgersfort Permit granted on 06/06/2008. Phoenix Project permit granted – adjacent to Norilsk Phoenix Mine – total resource (with Selkirk) of 1.70 Mill tonnes at 0.29% Ni and 0.20% Cu. Drilling started at Musina Cu Project (“CPR” to be released end of Sep08)
Insizwa - Work Programme Regional Reconnaissance Work to identify target areas Work Programme – soil sampling, mapping, sampling and reviewing Falconbridge data Target – sulphide showings previously identified by Falconbridge such as at Horseshoe Lobe). Detailed Target Evaluation Work Programme - Ground geophysics (induced polarisation) to identify which targets are worthy of being drill tested Target - Ndzongiseni. Drill Ready Targets Work Programme – Diamond Drilling Target - Waterfall Gorge.
Regional Programme Highlights Historic Falconbridge trench data identified Ndzongiseni as a target for detailed follow-up. Mapping identified a sulphide vein, gossans and historic adit at Horseshoe Lobe. 1500 soil samples collected to date, assay results will be used to identify new targets.
Regional Exploration Karoo Sediments Gabbronorite Lherzolite Diorite Ndzongiseni Falconbridge Trench Data showed showed values of 0.5 g/t to 7.16 g/t Pt; pd and Au over lenghts of 0.5 to 10 m coincident with 0.20 % Ni and Cu in the saprock and up to 6% Ni and Cu in fresh sulphides
Detailed Target Evaluation -Ndzongiseni IP Anomaly - 2ms 2 ms Anomaly – 1000 m * 400 * 150 m 1.2 km Footwall Contact Highlight – Large IP Anomaly Identified
1300 m X 4 sites = 5200 m Total metres for northern and southern grids = 8050 m Detailed Target Evaluation - Ndzongiseni
Drill Ready Targets - Waterfall Gorge Highlights 5 992 m drilled to date from 62 boreholes in the lower adit (plus ~ 500 m from the upper adit). Mineralisation continues at depth. Discovery of decline – dewatering in progress, currently 100 m exposed. “Gap” area in soil sampling completed.
0 10 km – To identify several deposits of a few million tonnes each along the eastern margin of the Insizwa Complex (soil sampling and drilling). –To possibly identify the large “missing sulphide” deposit that may be associated with feeder structures (MT (plus drilling?). –To obtain new exploration permits over prospective ground using an extensive dataset covering SE Africa. –To advance projects such that their potential is realised. 2008 OBJECTIVES
