Joshua Gold Resources Inc.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

Notes to Unaudited Condensed Interim Financial Statements

For the three month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019


1.

Nature of Operations


Joshua Gold Resources Inc. (referred to herein as “Joshua”, or the “Company”) was incorporated on July 10, 2009 in the State of Nevada, USA.


The Company operates as a mineral exploration business headquartered at 1321 Dundas Street, and Woodstock, Ontario, Canada. Its principal business activity is the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral property interests in Canada.  The Company is considered to be in the exploration stage and substantially all of the Company’s efforts are devoted to financing and developing these property interests.  


The Company has the rights to six mineral properties in Ontario and in the Northwest Territories, Canada. There has been no determination whether the Company’s interests in unproven mineral properties contain mineral reserves, which are economically recoverable.


Going Concern


The unaudited condensed interim financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.  The going concern basis of presentation assumes that the Company will continue operations for the foreseeable future and will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities and commitments in the normal course of operation.


The Company has incurred a net loss of $126,900 for the three month period ended March 31, 2020, and a working capital deficit of $1,163,020. As an exploration stage entity, the Company has not yet commenced its mining operations and accordingly does not have any revenue. This casts substantial doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern unless it can begin to generate net profit and raise adequate financing.


The Company has been seeking additional debt or equity financing to support its operations until it becomes cash flow positive.  There can be no assurances that the action and plan above will be sufficient for the Company to continue operating as a going concern.


The unaudited condensed interim financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or amounts classified as liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence. These adjustments could be material.


2.

Significant Accounting Policies


The accompanying unaudited condensed interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10–Q and Rule 10 of Regulation S–X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. However, in the opinion of the management of the Company, all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position and operating results have been included in these unaudited condensed interim financial statements. These unaudited condensed interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10–K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, as filed with the SEC on March 30, 2020. Operating results for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any subsequent quarters or for the year ending December 31, 2020.

Significant Accounting Policies - continued


Use of Estimates


The preparation of unaudited condensed interim financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the unaudited condensed interim financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Some of the Company's more significant estimates include those related to uncollectible receivables, the fair value of stock-based compensation and other equity instruments, and the recoverability of mineral properties.  These estimates are reviewed periodically, and, as adjustments become necessary, they are reported in earnings in the period in which they become known.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments


In accordance with ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., the “exit price”) in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.


In determining fair value, the Company uses various valuation approaches.  A fair value hierarchy for inputs is used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available.  Observable inputs are those that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Fund. Unobservable inputs reflect the Company assumptions about the inputs market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability developed based on the best information available in the circumstances.  


The fair value hierarchy is categorized into three levels based on the inputs as follows:


 

 

 

  

Level 1  -

Inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

  

Level 2  -

Inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the assets or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instruments.

  

Level 3  -

Inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value.


Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes pursuant to ASC 740, Income Taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded for differences between the financial statements and tax basis of the assets and liabilities that will result in taxable or deductible amounts in the future based on enacted tax laws and rates.  Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.  Income tax expense is recorded for the amount of income tax payable or refundable for the period increased or decreased by the change in deferred tax assets and liabilities during the period.

Significant Accounting Policies – continued


Stock-based Compensation


The Company accounts for Stock-Based Compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation. ASC 718 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services.  It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments.


ASC 718 focuses primarily on accounting for transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions.  ASC 718 requires that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the unaudited condensed interim financial statements measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued, when granted in exchange for employee services.


Awards granted to non-employees fall under ASC 505-50 and are recognized based on the fair value of the goods or services received or the equity instruments, whichever is more reliable.


Net Earnings (Loss) Per Share


The Company accounts for earnings (loss) per share pursuant ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, which requires disclosure on the unaudited condensed interim financial statements of “basic” and “diluted” earnings (loss) per share. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the year.  Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus common stock equivalents (if dilutive) related to stock options and warrants for each year. The weighted average number of shares outstanding has been adjusted for the effects of stock dividends, stock splits, and reverse stock splits.


There were no dilutive financial instruments for the three month periods ended March 31, 2020 and 2019.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements


In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments. The standard’s main goal is to improve financial reporting by requiring earlier recognition of credit losses on financing receivables and other financial assets in scope. ASU 2016-13 has no impact on the Company’s unaudited condensed interim financial statements.


In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-08, Compensation—Stock Compensation (Topic 718) and Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Codification Improvements—Share-Based Consideration Payable to a Customer, that simplifies and increases comparability of accounting for nonemployee share-based payments, specifically those made to customers. The new guidance requires companies to measure and classify (on the balance sheet) share-based payments to customers by applying the guidance in Topic 718. As a result, the amount recorded as a reduction in revenue would be measured based on the grant-date fair value of the share-based payment. ASU 2019-08 has no impact on the Company’s unaudited condensed interim financial statements.


Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, when adopted, will have a material effect on the accompanying unaudited condensed interim financial statements, other than those disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on March 30, 2020.

Carson Property


On December 23, 2010, the Company entered into a mineral property acquisition agreement with 2214098 Ontario Ltd. pursuant to which the Company acquired the mining lease to the Carson Property. Under the acquisition agreement, the Company was required to pay:


1.

Cash consideration of $99,060 (CDN$100,000) to be paid according to an installment schedule between April 30, 2011 and December 31, 2015;


2.

Equity consideration of 1,000,000 shares of common stock to be issued on or before March 30, 2011; and

Royalty of 3% of all net smelter returns upon commencement of commercial production of the property.


The Carson Property is 1,812 acres in area and is located north by north-west of the City of Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories, Canada. The Company’s interest in the property consists of a 21-year mining lease, which expires on June 30, 2024 and for which the Company was responsible for making annual lease payments of $1,141, in order to keep the lease in good standing.


On December 13, 2012, the Company terminated its acquisition agreement for the Carson Property with 2214098 Ontario Ltd. Under the terms of the agreement, the Company returned the property to the vendor, and both parties are released from any further obligation under the agreement.


The Company had reflected the termination as a loss on disposal of mineral property on the statement of operations of $112,686 for the year ended December 31, 2012.

During 2014, the Company recognized an impairment charge of $1,975,999 on the carrying value of the Kenty Property based on the substantial doubt of the Company’s ability to raise adequate financing to further develop and explore this property.


At present the Company is involved in three material litigation proceedings. These actions are ongoing in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and all involve the ownership of the Kenty Property.


The first application is an application brought by Emerald Isle Resources on May 14, 2013 seeking a declaration that it is the legal owner of the Kenty Property.  The application alleges:  (i) that Brian A. McClay, the owner of the Kenty Property, had sold 100% of his interest therein to Emerald Isle in 1986, although Emerald Isle did not register its acquisition of the Kenty Property at that time; and (ii) that at the time he entered into an agreement to sell the Kenty Property to the Company, Mr. McClay had no interest in the Kenty Property to sell.  The Company has responded to that application.


By separate application commenced March 13, 2014 the Company and its co- applicant, Mr. McClay commenced a separate proceeding in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice seeking a formal declaration that Mr. McClay is the sole owner of a 100% undivided interest in the Kenty Property subject only to a smelting agreement and a Mineral Property Acquisition Agreement in favor of the Company.


These matters remain to be resolved.

Financial Instruments - continued


Foreign Currency Risk

Foreign currency risk is the risk that changes in the rates of exchange on foreign currencies will impact the financial position or cash flows of the Company. The Company’s functional currency is the Canadian dollar, thus the Company is exposed to foreign currency risks in relation to certain payables that are to be settled in US funds. Management monitors its foreign currency exposure regularly to minimize the risk of an adverse impact on its cash flows.


Concentration of Credit Risk

Concentration of credit risk is the risk of loss in the event that certain counterparties are unable to fulfill its obligations to the Company. The Company limits its exposure to credit loss on its cash by placing its cash with high credit quality financial institutions. The Company does not have any cash in excess of federally insured limits. Sales taxes receivable are due from the Canadian government and notes receivable are due from stockholders with whom the Company also has advances payable.


Liquidity Risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that the Company’s cash flows from operations will not be sufficient for the Company to continue operating and discharge its liabilities. The Company is exposed to liquidity risk as its continued operation is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing, either in the form of debt or equity, or achieving profitable operations in order to satisfy its liabilities as they come due. See note 1.


Market Risk

Market risk is the risk that fluctuations in the market prices of minerals will impact the Company’s future cash flows. The Company is exposed to market risk on the price of gold, which will determine its ability to build and achieve profitable operations, the amount of exploration and development work that the Company will be able to perform, and the number of financing opportunities that will be available. Management believes that it would be premature at this point to enter into any hedging or forward contracts to mitigate its exposure to specific market price risks.


9.  

Subsequent Events


On April 14, 2020, the Company purchased a 100% interest in thirty five claims, known as the Halcrow Gold Property, McCool Property and Seymour Lake Extension Property Northern Ontario.  The Company paid one million JSHG common shares for the mineral property and a two per cent (2%) Net Smelter Royalty ('NSR') of which the Company has the option to repurchase 75% of the NSR for one million Canadian dollars ($1,000,000) for each of the three properties at any time.


On May 3, 2020, the Company issued 100,000 shares of common stock in relation to the acquisition agreement executed on January 15, 2020, whereby the Company acquired 100% interest in eleven claims, known as the Borden North Property in Cochrane and Darcy Townships.


There was a global outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), which has had a significant impact on businesses through the restrictions put in place by the Canadian, provincial and municipal governments regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, it is unknown the extent of the impact the COVID-19 outbreak may have on the Company as this will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place by Canada and other countries to fight the virus.

Certain statements, other than purely historical information, including estimates, projections, statements relating to our business plans, objectives, and expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based, are “forward looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believes”, “project”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “estimates”, “intends”, “strategy”, “plan”, “may”, “will”, “would”, “will be”, “will continue”, “will likely result”, and similar expressions.  We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe-harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and we are including this statement for purposes of complying with those safe-harbor provisions.  Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements.  Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain.  Factors which could have a material adverse effect on our operations and future prospects on a consolidated basis include, but are not limited to: changes in economic conditions, legislative/regulatory changes, availability of capital, interest rates, competition, and generally accepted accounting principles.  These risks and uncertainties should also be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements.  We undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.  Further information concerning our business, including additional factors that could materially affect our financial results, is included herein and in our other filings with the SEC.


Overview


With respect to this discussion, the terms “we” “us” “our” and the “Company” refer to Joshua Gold Resources Inc.

 

(a)

Corporate History and Background.


We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 10, 2009.  Prior to the Stock Purchase transaction described below in this Item 2, our business purpose was to seek the acquisition of or merger with, an existing private company. Accordingly, we were engaged in organizational efforts in order to put us in a position where we could seek to target and eventually acquire an existing private company.


On June 4, 2010, Ben Fuschino, our sole officer and director at that time, sold his 35,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, which shares represented 100% of our issued and outstanding common stock, to Luc Duchesne and Robert Cormier for a total purchase price of $7,000 (the “Stock Purchase”).  Upon closing of the Stock Purchase, (i) Mr. Duchesne and Mr. Cormier held a controlling 100% ownership in the Company, (ii) we changed our business and became a start-up carbon measuring company and (iii) we changed our name to Bio-Carbon Systems International Inc. to better reflect our new business enterprise.


Immediately after the closing of the Stock Purchase, on June 4, 2010, we entered into a license agreement (the “Cormier License”) with R&B Cormier Enterprises Inc. (“Cormier Enterprises”), an Ontario corporation and a license agreement (the “GSN License”) with GSN Dreamworks, Inc., an Ontario corporation (“GSN”).  The Cormier License and GSN License (collectively, the “License Agreements”) granted the Company licensed intellectual property and technology to conduct airborne and other surveys of forested lands in areas that are difficult to access.  Those surveys would have been conducted in a statistically verifiable process designed for use in carbon trading programs to assess the potential value of the surveyed lands as carbon sequestration land parcels in carbon trading, carbon sequestration, and other greenhouse gas emission control, offset and reduction programs.


Also, on June 4, 2010, the Company entered into consulting agreements (collectively, the “Consulting Agreements”) with Mr. Duchesne and Mr. Cormier, pursuant to which Mr. Duchesne and Mr. Cormier agreed to provide the Company with management and advisory services with respect to the intellectual property licensed to the Company under the Cormier and GSN Licenses.




21






On December 23, 2010, the Company elected to terminate the License Agreements and Consulting Agreements as the Company determined that conditions were not in place for the successful exploitation of the technology covered by the License Agreements.  The termination did not given rise to any penalties against the Company as the termination was concluded through a mutual agreement of separation.


(b)

Current Business of Issuer, Acquisitions of Current Mineral Property Holdings, and Recent Material Transactions.


Upon termination of the aforementioned License and Consulting Agreements, the Company abandoned the carbon measuring business and became a mineral exploration company located in Oakville, Ontario through the acquisition of a mineral rights lease, as described in further detail below.  The Company’s principal business activity now is the exploration of mineral property interests.  The Company is considered to be in the exploration stage and substantially all of the Company’s efforts are devoted to exploring mineral property interests.  There has been no determination whether the Company’s interests in unproven mineral properties contain mineral reserves which are economically recoverable. In the first quarter of 2020, the Company moved its head office to 1321 Dundas Street, Woodstock, Ontario, Canada N4S 7V9.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


We are an exploration stage company focused on developing our business in the mineral exploration sector.  Our principal business objective for the next twelve (12) months will be to continue to develop our business plan in this sector.


As of March 31, 2020, we had cash of $16,681 and current liabilities of $1,221,129.  We do not have sufficient capital to operate our business and will require additional funding to sustain operations through March 2021.  There is no assurance that we will be able to achieve revenues sufficient to become profitable.


We have incurred losses since inception and our ability to continue as a going-concern depends upon our ability to develop profitable operations and to continue to raise adequate financing.  We are actively targeting sources of additional financing to provide continuation of our operations.  In order for us to meet our liabilities as they come due and to continue our operations, we are solely dependent upon our ability to generate such financing.


There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to continue to raise funds, in which case we may be unable to meet our obligations and we may cease operations.


Net cash used in operating activities.  During the three month period ended March 31, 2020, net cash used in operating activities was $50,049 compared with $32,162 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The cash flow used in operating activities in the three month period ended March 31, 2020 was primarily the result of professional fees. The cash flow used in operating activities in the three month period ended March 31, 2019 was primarily the result of exploration, administration, professional and consulting fees, which was partially offset primarily by adjustments for stock-based compensation.


Net cash used in investing activities.  During the three month period ended March 31, 2020, net cash used in investing activities was $Nil and was $Nil for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.


Net cash provided by financing activities.  During the three month period ended March 31, 2020, net cash provided by financing activities was $41,883 compared with $45,458 provided by financing activities for the three month ended period March 31, 2019. The cash flow provided by financing activities in the three month period ended March 31, 2020 and 2019 was primarily the result of advances from shareholders.


Results of Operations


Comparison of three month period ended March 31, 2020, to three month period ended March 31, 2019


We did not earn any revenues during the three month periods ended March 31, 2020, and March 31, 2019.  We do not anticipate earning revenues until such time as we have entered into commercial production of our mineral properties. We are presently in the exploration stage of our business and we can provide no assurance that we will discover commercially exploitable levels of mineral resources on our properties, or if such resources are discovered, that we will enter into commercial production of our mineral properties.



22







Consulting Fees.  Consulting fees for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 increased to $46,900 from $28,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The consulting fees are attributable to the services payable in common stock of the Company to the Chief Executive Officer and to the Chief Financial Officer as fair value is determined by its recent trading price.


Exploration Expenses.  Exploration expenses increased to $1,255 for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 from $Nil for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The increase in exploration expenses was primarily due to commencement of activity.


General and Administrative Expenses.  General and administrative expenses decreased to $959 for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 from $1,023 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily related to a decrease in activity.


Professional Fees.  Professional fees increased to $46,900 for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 from $18,599 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The increase in professional fees was primarily due to costs associated with filing the annual 10-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission and settlement of legal costs associated with ongoing litigation.


Net loss.  For the three month ended period March 31, 2020, we incurred a net loss of $126,900 as compared to a net loss of $32,784 for the three month period ended March 31, 2019.  The increase in net loss was primarily a result of increased costs described above.


Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.


Inflation


We do not believe that inflation has had in the past or will have in the future any significant negative impact on our operations.


Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.


As we are a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide the information required by this item.


Item 4.  Controls and Procedures.


(a) 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.


We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(e)) that are designed to assure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.  As required by Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(b), as of the end of the period covered by this report, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures and concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are ineffective as of the date of filing this Form 10-Q due to limited accounting and reporting personnel, inadequate accounting policies and procedures, and a lack of segregation of duties due to limited financial resources and the size of our company.  We will need to adopt additional disclosure controls and procedures prior to commencement of material operations.  Consistent therewith, on an on-going basis we will evaluate the adequacy of our controls and procedures.

(b) 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting.


There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during our most recent fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
