Information Concerning Diamond Producing
Property in Which Company Has an Interest
On January 2, 2013
the Company exercised an option granted to the Company pursuant to an agreement (“Option Agreement”), dated December
18, 2012 between the Company and Brazil Mining, Inc. (“Brazil Mining”) to purchase for $800,000 in cash a 20% share
of the monthly diamond production that Brazil Mining actually receives in respect of Brazil Mining’s 55% equity interest
in a Brazilian entity known as “Target 1”. Brazil Mining has the right to redeem the Company’s 20% share for
a consideration and upon the occurrence of certain events specified in the Option Agreement. A Copy of the Option Agreement has
been filed as Exhibit 10.3 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
on December 26, 2012.
Target 1 is a
Brazilian company called Duas Barras Mineração Ltda (“Duas Barras”), with its main office at
Fazenda Duas Barras, municipality of Olhos D’Agua, state of Minas Gerais, CEP 39398-000, Brazil, and with CNPJ
(Brazilian corporate tax identification) number 07.950.123/0001-32. Duas Barras owns the mining right called “Portaria
de Lavra” (mining concession) number 265, published in Brazil’s Official Federal Gazette on August 25th, 2006,
and awarded by DNPM (“Departamento Nacional de
Produção Mineral”, the National Mining Department, a Brazilian federal government entity) with respect to
DNPM Process number 806.569/1977. The mining concession area is 170.89 hectares or approximately 422 acres.
“Portaria de Lavra” is the highest level of mining right achievable; this mining concession permits mining of
diamond and gold in the property. In addition to the “Portaria de Lavra”, Duas Barras has current operating and
environmental licenses issued by state authorities to operate its plant.
The Duas Barras mining
concession with its diamond and gold processing plant is located on the left bank of the Jequitinhonha River in the state of Minas
Gerais, Brazil, approximately 250 kilometers north of Belo Horizonte, the state capital. The diamond processing plant at Duas Barras
is accessible by dirt road which connects to asphalt highways. A major city, Montes Claros, the regional hub for northern Minas
Gerais, with a population of over 400,000 people and a busy regional airport, is located within an hour and a half drive of Duas
Barras. The Jequitinhonha River is a well-known area for diamond and gold production; it has hosted alluvial mining operations
on all scales since the 18th century.
Duas Barras diamond and gold processing plant was built by the previous owner of the mining concession, a Canadian listed company
called Vaaldiam Resources Ltd. (“Vaaldiam”). Kenneth Johnson, the past president of Vaaldiam do Brasil Ltda., the Brazilian
arm of Vaaldiam, is a member of the Board of Advisors of Brazil Mining, a shareholder of the Company. To the best of the
Company’s knowledge, the diamond and gold processing plant at Duas Barras is the largest such type of alluvial recovery plant
in Latin America. To the best of the Company’s knowledge, the cost of construction was approximately $2.5 million. The plant
is functioning at present below capacity, but producing diamonds and gold. It has nine employees.
Company has not performed any geological studies in Duas Barras. The Company has relied on the report entitled “Technical
Report Duas Barras Diamond Project, Brazil, Presenting Details of Diamond Resources Compliant with Canadian National Instrument
43-101” (henceforth simply “Duas Barras NI 43-101”), issued by Qualified Person and Professional Geologist Paul
J. Daigle, Senior Project Geologist at Vaaldiam, on March 30th, 2007. The Duas Barras NI 43-101 contains in its page 9 the following
table of resources:
||Diamond Grade (cts/m3)
||Diamond Content (carats)
||Fine Gold Grade (mg/m3)
||Fine Gold Content (kg)|
Company does not anticipate performing any geological work to confirm or deny the data above. The complete report is on file with
Canada’s securities commission at www.sedar.com by searching under “Vaaldiam” and thereafter navigating to the
entry entitled “Technical Report (NI 43-101)-English dated April 12, 2007.”
