MEXUS GOLD US AND SUBSIDIARIES

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

September 30, 2018

(Unaudited)

 

1. ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS OF COMPANY  

 

Mexus Gold US (the “Company”) was originally incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado on June 22, 1990, as U.S.A. Connection, Inc. On October 28, 2005, the Company changed its’ name to Action Fashions, Ltd. On September 18, 2009, the Company changed its’ domicile to Nevada and changed its’ name to Mexus Gold US to better reflect the Company’s new planned principle business operations. The Company has a fiscal year end of March 31.

 

The Company is a mining company engaged in the evaluation, acquisition, exploration and advancement of gold, silver and copper projects in the State of Sonora, Mexico and the Western United States, as well as, the salvage of precious metals from identifiable sources.

 

2. BASIS OF PREPARATION  

 

Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for Form 10-Q, the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements, footnote disclosures and other information normally included in consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted. The condensed consolidated financial statements contained in this report are unaudited but, in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. The results of operations for any interim period are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year. The condensed consolidated balance sheet at March 31, 2018 has been derived from the audited consolidated financial statements at that date but does not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.

 

The preparation of unaudited condensed consolidated 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, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management reviews these estimates and assumptions on an ongoing basis using currently available information. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Three and six month figures are not necessarily indicative of the results to be reported at the year end.

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and controlled subsidiaries, Mexus Gold Mining, S.A. de C.V. (“Mexus Gold Mining), Mexus Enterprises S.A. de C.V. (“Mexus Gold Enterprises”) and Mexus Gold MX S.A. DE C.V. (“Mexus Gold MX”). Significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could materially differ from those estimates. Management believes that the estimates used are reasonable. The more significant estimates and assumptions by management include, among others, the accrual of potential liabilities, the assumptions used in valuing share-based instruments issued for services, valuation of derivative liabilities and the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers highly liquid financial instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

2. BASIS OF PREPARATION (CONTINUED)  

 

Equipment

 

Equipment consists of mining tools and equipment, watercraft and vehicles which are depreciated on a straight-line basis over their expected useful lives as follows (see Note 5):

 

Mining tools and equipment

 

7 years

Watercrafts

 

7 years

Vehicles

 

3 years

 

Equipment under Construction

 

Equipment under construction comprises mining equipment that is currently being fabricated and modified by the Company and is not presently in use. Equipment under construction totaled $17,018 and $73,456 as of September 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively. Equipment under construction at September 30, 2018 comprises a Hydraulic Drum 12YD, Skid Mounted Mill and Survey Winch Marine.

 

Exploration and Development Costs

 

Exploration costs incurred in locating areas of potential mineralization or evaluating properties or working interests with specific areas of potential mineralization are expensed as incurred. Development costs of proven mining properties not yet producing are capitalized at cost and classified as capitalized exploration costs under property, plant and equipment. Property holding costs are charged to operations during the period if no significant exploration or development activities are being conducted on the related properties. Upon commencement of production, capitalized exploration and development costs would be amortized based on the estimated proven and probable reserves benefited. Properties determined to be impaired or that are abandoned are written-down to the estimated fair value. Carrying values do not necessarily reflect present or future values.

 

Mineral Property Rights

 

Costs of acquiring mining properties are capitalized upon acquisition. Mine development costs incurred either to develop new ore deposits, to expand the capacity of mines, or to develop mine areas substantially in advance of current production are also capitalized once proven and probable reserves exist and the property is a commercially mineable property. Costs incurred to maintain current production or to maintain assets on a standby basis are charged to operations. Costs of abandoned projects are charged to operations upon abandonment. The Company evaluates the carrying value of capitalized mining costs and related property and equipment costs, to determine if these costs are in excess of their recoverable amount whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amounts may not be recoverable. Evaluation of the carrying value of capitalized costs and any related property and equipment costs are based upon expected future cash flows and/or estimated salvage value in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 360-10-35-15, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets .

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

In accordance with ASC 360, Property Plant and Equipment the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life. Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value.

2. BASIS OF PREPARATION (CONTINUED)  

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.

 

Included in the ASC Topic 820 framework is a three level valuation inputs hierarchy with Level 1 being inputs and transactions that can be effectively fully observed by market participants spanning to Level 3 where estimates are unobservable by market participants outside of the Company and must be estimated using assumptions developed by the Company. The Company discloses the lowest level input significant to each category of asset or liability valued within the scope of ASC Topic 820 and the valuation method as exchange, income or use. The Company uses inputs which are as observable as possible and the methods most applicable to the specific situation of each company or valued item.

 

The Company's financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, advances, notes payable, and a promissory note payable. The carrying amount of these financial instruments approximate fair value due to either length of maturity or interest rates that approximate prevailing market rates unless otherwise disclosed in these financial statements.

 

Secured convertible promissory note derivative liability is measured at fair value on a recurring basis using Level 3 inputs.

 

Interest rate risk is the risk that the value of a financial instrument might be adversely affected by a change in the interest rates. The notes payable, loans payable and secured convertible promissory notes have fixed interest rates therefore the Company is exposed to interest rate risk in that they could not benefit from a decrease in market interest rates. In seeking to minimize the risks from interest rate fluctuations, the Company manages exposure through its normal operating and financing activities.

 

Derivative Instruments

 

Accounting standards require that an entity recognize all derivatives as either assets or liabilities in the statement of financial position and measure those instruments at fair value. A change in the market value of the financial instrument is recognized as a gain or loss in results of operations in the period of change.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The Company’s functional and reporting currency is the United States dollar. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated to United States dollars in accordance with ASC 740, Foreign Currency Translation Matters, using the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date. Gains and losses arising on translation or settlement of foreign currency denominated transactions or balances are included in the determination of income.

 

To the extent that the Company incurs transactions that are not denominated in its functional currency, they are undertaken in Mexican Pesos. The Company has not, as of the date of these financial statements, entered into derivative instruments to offset the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.

 

Comprehensive Loss

 

ASC 220, Comprehensive Income establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the consolidated financial statements. As at September 30, 2018 and 2017, the Company had no items that represent a comprehensive loss, and therefore has not included a schedule of comprehensive loss in the consolidated financial statements.

2. BASIS OF PREPARATION (CONTINUED)  

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Tax”. The asset and liability method provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities, and for operating loss and tax credit carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is believed more likely than not to be realized.

 

Asset Retirement Obligations

 

In accordance with accounting standards for asset retirement obligations (ASC 410), the Company records the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation (ARO) when there is a legal obligation associated with the retirement of a tangible long-lived asset and the liability can be reasonably estimated. The associated asset retirement costs are supposed to be capitalized as part of the carrying amount of the related mineral properties. As of September 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018, the Company has not recorded AROs associated with legal obligations to retire any of the Company’s mineral properties as the settlement dates are not presently determinable.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company follows the guidance of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 104 for revenue recognition and Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition.” Accordingly, the Company records revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, services have been rendered or product delivery has occurred, the selling price to the customer is fixed or determinable and collectability of the revenue is reasonably assured.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company records stock based compensation in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 718 which requires the Company to recognize expenses related to the fair value of its employee stock option awards. This eliminates accounting for share-based compensation transactions using the intrinsic value and requires instead that such transactions be accounted for using a fair-value-based method. The Company recognizes the cost of all share-based awards on a graded vesting basis over the vesting period of the award.

 

ASC 505, "Compensation-Stock Compensation", establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments to non-employees for goods or services. Under this transition method, stock compensation expense includes compensation expense for all stock-based compensation awards granted on or after January 1, 2006, based on the grant-date fair value estimated in accordance with the provisions of ASC 505.

 

Per Share Data

 

Net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average common shares outstanding during the period as defined by Financial Accounting Standards, ASC Topic 260, "Earnings per Share". Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per common share calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding. During periods when common stock equivalents, if any, are anti-dilutive they are not considered in the computation.

3. GOING CONCERN  

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. During the six months ended September 30, 2018, the Company incurred a net loss of $960,766 and used cash in operating activities of $494,070, and at September 30, 2018, had an accumulated deficit of $27,814,760. At September 30, 2018, the Company is in the exploration stage and has not earned revenue from planned operations. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern within one year of the date that the financial statements are issued. The Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, in their report on the Company’s financial statements for the year ending March 31, 2018, expressed substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company is dependent upon outside financing to continue operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. It is management’s plans to raise necessary funds through a private placement of its common stock to satisfy the capital requirements of the Company’s business plan. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to raise the necessary funds, or that if it is successful in raising the necessary funds, that the Company will successfully execute its business plan.

 

The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets and/or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The continuation as a going concern is dependent upon the ability of the Company to meet our obligations on a timely basis, and, ultimately to attain profitability.

 

4. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS AFFECTING THE COMPANY  

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU 2014-09, as amended, is a comprehensive revenue recognition standard that will supersede nearly all existing revenue recognition guidance under current U.S. GAAP and replace it with a principle based approach for determining revenue recognition. Under ASU 2014-09, revenue is recognized when a customer obtains control of promised goods or services and is recognized in an amount that reflects the consideration which the entity expects to receive in exchange for those goods or services. In addition, the standard requires disclosure of the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2017. Under ASU 2014-09, revenue will be recognized when performance obligations under the terms of a contract are satisfied, which generally occurs upon shipment or delivery to customers based on written sales terms, which is also when control is transferred. Revenue will be measured as the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for transferring products or services to a customer. The Company will adopt the guidance of ASU 2014-09 on April 1, 2018. As the Company does not currently have revenue, the adoption of the new guidance did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

4. RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS AFFECTING THE COMPANY (CONTINUED)  

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases. ASU 2016-02 requires a lessee to record a right of use of asset and a corresponding lease liability on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. ASU 2016-02 is effective for all interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018. Early adoption is permitted. A modified retrospective transition approach is required for lessees for capital and operating leases existing at, or entered into after, the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in the financial statements, with certain practical expedients available. The Company is currently evaluating the expected impact that the standard could have on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB, including its Emerging Issues Task Force, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, and the Securities and Exchange Commission did not or are not believed by management to have a material impact on the Company's present or future consolidated financial statements.

Description of the Business of Mexus Gold US

 

Mexus Gold US is engaged in the evaluation, acquisition, exploration and advancement of gold exploration and development projects in the United Mexican States, as well as, the salvage of precious metals from identifiable sources. Our main activities in the near future will be comprised of our mining operations in Mexico. Our mining opportunities located in the State of Sonora, Mexico will provide us with projects to recover gold, silver, copper and other precious metals.  

 

In addition, our management will look for opportunities to improve the value of the gold projects that we own or may acquire knowledge of or may acquire control through exploration drilling, introduction of technological innovations or acquisition with the goal of developing those properties into operating mines. We expect that emphasis on gold project acquisition and development will continue in the future.  

 

Business Strategy

 

Our business plan was developed with the overriding goal of maximizing shareholder value through the exploration and development of our mineral properties, utilizing the extensive mining-related background and capabilities of our management consultants and advisors. To achieve this goal, our business plan focuses on the following prospective areas: 


18


 

 

Mining Operations

 

We classify our mineral properties into three categories: “Development Properties”, “Advanced Exploration Properties”, and “Other Exploration Properties”. Development Properties are properties where a decision to develop the property into a producing mine has been made. Advanced Exploration Properties are those properties where we retain a significant ownership interest or joint venture and where there has been sufficient drilling and analysis to identify and report proven and probable reserves or other mineralized material. We currently do not have a Development Property or Advanced Exploration Property. Other Exploration Properties are those that do not fall into the other categories. Please see below for information about our Other Exploration Properties. 

 

Effective March 31, 2011, we acquired Mexus Gold S.A. de C.V. (our wholly owned subsidiary) and began funding mining operations in Mexico. We have instituted a small placer processing operation to evaluate various areas of interest within the project lands. 

 

Material Mining Properties

 

Santa Elena Prospect , (formerly known as the Caborca Project)

 

Our Santa Elena Prospect is comprised of early-stage exploration, including limited production operations, on the concessions. Under the terms of the concession agreement we also will acquire the associated surface. This concession is situated in the State of Sonora, Mexico.  

 

On April 16, 2018, Mexus Gold Mining S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Mexus, announced that it planned to terminate its joint venture agreement with MarMar Holdings (the “JV Agreement”). The JV Agreement outlined the contractual obligations of the parties at the Santa Elena project in Caborca, Sonora State, Mexico. The decision to terminate the JV Agreement was made due to MarMar’s failure to provide agreed funding, equipment and general operations for the project, as well as MarMar’s inability to meet environmental standards at the site. We do not anticipate any early termination penalties associated with the JV Agreement. On July 2, 2018, the Company announced that the agreement was officially terminated.  

 

We intend to move forward with the Santa Elena project with proper equipment and personnel. Due to the lack of funding by MarMar, the Santa Elena site, a disappointing 8.5oz Au was produced in the last 22 months.  

 

The Company has contracted with a security firm to provide 24-hour services at the Santa Elena site. Currently, there is equipment on site sufficient to produce an anticipated 500 tons a day and plans are in place to begin hiring staff with production beginning shortly thereafter. In addition, safety fencing will be installed and required site clean-up will occur that will satisfy any environmental concerns at the property. Two separate parties are running tests on the heap leach pad to determine the next steps to allow for recovery of gold and silver within the system.  

 

Using previously developed geological mapping the company plans to mine the Julio quartz vein and the adjacent shear zone via open pit mining. The existing Julio vein, with depths to 30 meters and widths from 1 to 4 meters, has values ranging from 1.5 to 186 grams Au per ton. The adjacent shear zone carries values from .5 to 17 grams Au per ton. Mexus estimates that the shear zone will average 2.5 grams per ton gold equivalent with the Julio vein values being much higher. Additional equipment will be purchased which will enable the company to increase production to 1000 tons a day and beyond. Mexus intends to announce a non-dilutive capital raise plan in the very near future. 

 

Ures Property Prospects (also known as 8 brothers/370 mine project)

 

The Ures Prospects, also situated in the State of Sonora, Mexico are the 370 Prospect, San Ramon Prospect, La Platosa Prospect, Edgar Prospect, Edgar II Prospect, Los Lareles Prospect, El Scorpio Prospect, and Ocho Hermanos Prospect.  

 

The VAT system at the URES property worked as planned.  Material from the property was placed in the VAT and allowed to leach.  The material placed in the VAT showed better than 5 grams of gold per ton but unfortunately the material also held a high % of other metals which consumed the cyanide.  The precipitate recovered held only a trace amount of gold with the majority being other base metals.  The VAT system can be used in the future.

Project Mabel Project

 

On May 1, 2018, Mexus Gold MX, entered into three agreements (collectively known as Project Mabel) to exploit and transfer mineral rights owed by Cesar Mauricio Lemas Contreras.

 

i) Project “Mabel” –Participation of 90% Mexus Gold MX and 10% Pacific Comox S.A. de C.V. (“Pacific Comox”). The administrator of Pacific Comox is Cesar Maruicio Lemas Contreras. The agreement transfers mining rights at concessions 216136, 216137, 218587, 218588, 190649, 172975, 2019102, 172960, 180700, 222782 and 222783, which together add up to 2,128.2003 hectares 

 

ii) Project “El Plomito” –Participation of 50% Mexus Gold MX and 50% Pacific Comox. The agreement transfers mining rights at concessions 220563, 213711, 215941, 216544, 200395 and 222989, which together add up to 275.02 hectares. 

 

iii) Project “La Famosa” – Participation of 50% Mexus Gold MX and 50% Pacific Comox. The agreement transfers mining rights at concessions 220394, 220395, 220840, 220841 and 199006, which together add up to 200.0568 hectares. 

 

On January 23, 2018, the Company paid 6,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $324,000 ($0.0540 per share) to Cesar Maruicio Lemas Contreras as consideration to enter into three Letter of Intent agreements. At March 31, 2018, the payment was recorded as a deposit on mineral property in the condensed consolidated balance sheet. On May 1, 2018, the $324,000 deposit on mineral properties was transferred to mineral properties on the condensed consolidated balance sheet.

 

Non-Material Minting Properties

 

San Felix Mine Project (formerly known as the Mexus-Trinidad Joint Venture)

 

In March, 2014, we sold our 50% interest in the Joint Venture to Atzek Mineral S.A. de C.V (“Atzek”). Atzek is currently in default of the sale agreement. 

 

Effective January 13, 2017, our wholly owned subsidiary, Mexus Gold Mining, S.A. de C.V., entered into a purchase agreement with Jesus Leopoldo Felix Mazon, Leonardo Elias Jaime Perez, and Elia Lizardi Perez, wherein we purchased a 50% interest in the “San Felix” mining site located in the La Alameda area of Caborca, State of Sonora, Mexico. The remaining 50% of the site is owned jointly by Mar Holdings S.A. de C.V. and Marco Antonio Martinez Mora. The San Felix mining site contains seven (7) concessions over an area of approximately 26,000 acres. During the year ended March 31, 2018, the Company recorded an impairment of mineral property for the San Felix Project of $75,000 because the requirement payment of $500,000 due on August 13, 2017 was not paid in accordance with the purchase agreement pending the receipt of certain required instruments from the Grantor by the Company. 

 

Other Operations

 

Cable Salvage Operation

 

The Company completed the first phase of its Cable Recovery Project in Alaskan waters. The cable which was recovered was smaller diameter cable which was excellent for testing the recovery equipment and vessels. The Company evaluated the project and conducted a mapping project and exploration activities in an attempt to identify larger cable.  

 

At March 31, 2017, the Company ceased cable salvage operations in order to fully concentrate on Mexico operations. 

 

Mergers and Acquisitions

 

We will routinely review merger and acquisition opportunities. An appropriate merger and acquisition opportunity must be accretive to the overall value of Mexus Gold US. Our primary focus will be on those opportunities involving precious metal production or near-term production with a secondary focus on other resource-based opportunities. Potential acquisition targets would include private and public companies or individual properties. Although our preference would be for candidates located in the United States and Mexico; Mexus Gold US will consider opportunities located in other countries where the geopolitical risk is acceptable.

The Company has conducted geological evaluation of the Santa Elena Prospects comprised of expanding the existing placer facility for the purpose of mineral evaluation, physical geological evaluations including the drilling of reverse circulation and core holes. Situated on the prospect area are caterpillars, haul trucks, maintenance trucks, power generators, pumps, tractor blade, truck mounted winch, water handling supplies and maintenance trailer with supplies. The prospect area is accessed from a state highway on existing roads. There is access to well water which is available for the current and future operations. 

 

On January 5, 2011, Mexus Gold Mining S.A. de C.V. entered into a Purchase Agreement to purchase the Santa Elena Prospect, formerly known as the Caborca Project. The Santa Elena Prospect consists of 7,400 acres (3,000 hectares) about 50 kilometers northwest of the City of Caborca, Sonora State, Mexico. The Caborca Project lies on claims filed by the owners of the Santa Elena Ranch, which controls the surface rights over the project claims. The claims lie near 112 o 25' W, 31 o 7.5" N. These claims were visited near the end of January, 2011. On or about July 11, 2011, we acquired five additional claims surrounding the Santa Elena Prospect consisting of approximately 1,000 additional acres.  

 

We have been unable to locate geologic maps of the area from the Government Geological Survey. However, pursuant to our investigation of the project, the claims were found to be underlain by an igneous complex. The rocks observed included many types of granitic rocks, exhibiting porphyrytic textures, gneissic and equigrannular textures. Quartz was variable. At times quartz "eyes" were observed, that is porphyrytic quartz which many workers consider to be indicative of a porphyry environment. In other localities, no quartz was evident. When no quartz was present, the rock was equigrannular. Quartz veining was evident throughout the claim group. A mine was developed along a major quartz vein, called the Julio 2 Mine with the vein being called the Julio Vein.  

 

There are multiple exploration targets on the Santa Elena Prospect. The two most important are the quartz stockwork zone and the Julio vein system. The first target will be the quartz stockwork zone area. A limited drilling program has been conducted and completed. Production testing has been completed resulting in the construction of the surface production and recovery facilities. 

 

Access to the Santa Elena prospect is via dirt road approximately two miles west of paved highway Mexico 1 and approximately 34 miles northwest of the town of Caborca, Sonora, Mexico.

Ures Property Prospects, being comprised of the following projects: 

 

Ocho Hermanos – Guadalupe de Ures Project  

 

The Guadalupe de Ures Project is accessed from Hermosillo by driving via good paved road for 60 kilometers to the town of Guadalupe de Ures and then for 15 kilometers over dirt roads to the prospects. A base camp has been established near the town of Guadalupe de Ures using mainly trailers for accommodation, workshops and kitchen facilities.

PICTURE 5  

 

FIGURE 2 - GUADALUPE DE URES PROJECT LOCATION MAP

 

The Ocho Hermanos Project (also called the Guadalupe de Ures Project) consists of the “Ocho Hermanos” and "San Ramon" claims which are covered by the Sales and Production Contract dated the 4 th day of July, 2009 between “Minerales Ruta Dorado de RL de CV” (seller) and “Mexus Gold Mining S.A. de C.V.”, a wholly owned subsidiary of Mexus Gold US (buyer). The Ocho Hermanos Claim consists of 34.9940 hectares (1 acre = 0.4047 hectares) or 86.4690 acres while the San Ramon Claim consists of 80 hectares (197.6773 acres).(Figure 4).

 

The initial term of the agreement was 5 years. During the term Mexus must pay 40% of the net revenue received for minerals produced to the seller. At the conclusion of the 5 years, the lease could be purchased for USD 50,000. Upon expiration on July 4, 2014, Mexus renewed the agreement with an indefinite term. The renewed agreement requires Mexus to pay $1,500 per month and 20% to the total proceeds upon a sale of the rights. 

 

Minerales Ruta Dorado de RL de CV is a duly constituted Mexican Company and as such can hold mining claims in Mexico.

FIGURE 3 - OCHO HERMANOS

PROJECT AREA CLAIM MAP

 

We did not perform any systematic sampling or any systematic drilling and because of this did not set up a formal QA/QC program. All of the samples were submitted to Certified Laboratories (ALS - Chemex in Hermosillo or American Assay in Reno, Nevada) which insert their own QA/QC samples/duplicates. Also the laboratories run duplicates and blanks from each batch fired. The sequence of events so far are the following: 

 

We located a previously mined area with interesting values – Ocho Hermanos. Mexus began to submit characterization samples to the above noted assay laboratories, in order to determine the range of Au - Ag values present. Mexus then began an investigation into recovery options by using material taken from the areas with the better values. 

 

The above work was completed before any systematic exploration was done because if no recovery method could be found relatively quickly, the project would move more slowly because of the lead time involved. Mexus began work on an Environmental Impact Statement for the likely operational area (a total of 4 hectares to begin). In order to complete the EIS, figures for estimated tonnages were submitted to cover the hoped for volume. To date, no suitable recovery method was found due primarily to the partial oxidation of the principally sulfide deposit. 

 

The Environmental Permits run for 35 years so there is time for further investigation. 

 

The main geologic feature of this project area is an apparent “manto” sulfide zone composed primarily of galena with some pyrite, arsenopyrite and possibly phyrrotite. Above this zone there is an oxide zone composed of iron and lead oxides. The sulfides themselves are partially oxidized. Reconnaissance and characterization samples taken indicated sporadically high gold and silver values. The deposit occurs in shallow water sediments (principally quartzites, with some limestone and shales) and can be best characterized as a skarn type deposit due to the presence of intrusive rocks within 1 kilometer.  


24


 

 

Given the complex nature of the sulfide deposit and the partial oxidization of the material (indicated by the presence of yellow colored lead oxides), a satisfactory recovery method has not yet been found. Consequently, at this time, no further systematic work beyond the initial reconnaissance and characterization sampling has been completed. The entire project was essentially put on hold until a suitable recovery method is found, which is a continuing effort and at this time is being pursued by a member of the faculty at the University of Sonora in Hermosillo. The faculty member teaches metallurgy and assay practices at the University. After a suitable recovery method has been identified, the process will need to be confirmed by a certified metallurgical testing laboratory. 

 

The Environmental Permits detail all of the affected flora and fauna. The land is presently used for cattle grazing and the surface rights are owned by the community of Guadelupe de Ures. An agreement is in place with Mexus Gold Mining S.A. de C.V. for surface access and disturbance. The Environmental Permit concludes that no permanent damage or degradation of the present land use will result from the intended activity on the lands. At present, the Environmental Permits cover a total of 4 hectares - 3 hectares cover the initial site of the mineral as presently understood and 1 hectare is permitted for the erection of a suitable extraction plant.  

 

No known contamination from past mining activities was found or is known to locals. The historic workings consisted of a few shallow adits and pits. In the course of obtaining the Environmental Permission the permit stipulated that properly lined ponds etc. must be used to prevent any potential surface or ground water contamination from any proposed activities.  

 

Only separation is proposed to be conducted on site if found to be possible, while final metal recovery will be conducted at a properly licensed and certified metal refining facility. Current efforts to find suitable recovery methods are being conducted off site in a University laboratory. Up sizing the process, if found, will be completed by a licensed, certified metallurgical laboratory. 

 

Figures of the proposed permitted sites are attached. These were extracted from the environmental permit application.

AREA DE EXTRACCION

 

370 Area Project  

 

This zone is composed of a sedimentary sequence (limestone, quartzite, shale) intruded by dacite and diorite as well as rhyolite. The dacite exhibits argillic alterations as well as silicification (quartz veins). The entire area is well oxidized on the surface. This is an area of classic disseminated low grade gold and silver mineralization. Surface grab sample assays show 0.14 grams per ton to as high as 29.490 grams per ton gold. This area is an important area for potentially defining an open pit heap leach project. 

 

El Scorpion Project Area  

 

This area has several shear zones and veins which show copper and gold mineralization. Recent assays of an 84’ drill hole shows 1.750% per ton to .750% per ton of copper and 3.971 grams per ton to 0.072 grams per ton of gold. Another assay of rock sample from the area shows greater than 4.690% per ton copper. This land form distribution appears to be synonymous to the ideal porphyry deposit at Baja La Alumbrera, Argentina. 


26


 

 

Los Laureles  

 

Los Laureles is a vein type deposit mainly gold with some silver and copper. Recent assays from grab samples show gold values of 67.730 grams per ton gold, 38.4 grams per ton silver, 2,800 grams per ton copper. 

 

As of the date of this Report, we have opened up old workings at the Los Laureles claim and have discovered a gold carrying vein running north and south into the mountain to the south.  

 

The San Felix Mine Project  

 

The San Felix mining site contains seven (7) concessions over an area of approximately 26,000 acres located in the La Alameda area of Caborca, Sonora, Mexico. During the year ended March 31, 2018, the Company recorded an impairment of mineral property for the San Felix Project of $75,000 because the requirement payment of $500,000 due on August 13, 2017 was not paid in accordance with the purchase agreement pending the receipt of certain required instruments from the Grantor by the Company. 

 

Employees

 

We have no employees at this time in the United States and Mexico. Consultants with specific skills are utilized to assist with various aspects of the requirements of activities such as project evaluation, property management, due diligence, acquisition initiatives, corporate governance and property management. If we complete our planned activation of the operations of the Mexican mining properties, our total workforce will be approximately 20 persons. Mr. Paul D. Thompson is our sole officer and director. 

 

Competition

 

We compete with other mining companies in connection with the acquisition of gold properties. There is competition for the limited number of gold acquisition opportunities, some of which is with companies having substantially greater financial resources than Mexus Gold US. As a result, Mexus Gold US may have difficulty acquiring attractive gold projects at reasonable prices.  

 

Management of Mexus Gold US believes that no single company has sufficient market power to affect the price or supply of gold in the world market.  

 

Legal Proceedings

 

There are no legal proceedings to which Mexus Gold US or Mexus Gold S.A. de C.V. is a party or of which any of our properties are the subject thereof. 

 

Property Interests, Mining Claims and Risk

 

Property Interests and Mining Claims

 

Our exploration activities and operations in Mexico are subject to the rules and regulations of the United Mexican States. The Ministry (Secretariat) of Mining is the Federal Mexican Government ministry charged with controlling all mining matters. A concession is granted on the acceptance of an application which identifies the specific minerals to be mined and description of the exact location of the lands to be mined. The concession is subject to a semiannual tax to continue the concession in good standing. Usually, our arrangements with a concessionaire describe specific period payments to be concessionaire and a royalty on the minerals recovered from mining operations. Where prospective mineral properties are identified by the Company, some type of conveyance of the mining rights and property acquisition agreement is necessary in order for us to explore or develop such property. Generally, these agreements take the form of long term mineral leases under which we acquire the right to explore and develop the property in exchange for periodic cash payments during the exploration and development phase and a royalty, usually expressed as a percentage of gross production or net profits derived from the leased properties if and when mines on the properties are brought into production. Other forms of acquisition agreements are exploration agreements coupled with options to purchase and joint venture agreements.  

 

Reclamation

 

We may be required to mitigate long-term environmental impacts by stabilizing, contouring, re-sloping and re-vegetating various portions of a site after mining and mineral processing operations are completed. These reclamation efforts will be conducted in accordance with detailed plans, which must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate regulatory agencies.

 

While the Company, as of March 31, 2018, does not have a legal obligation associated with the disposal of certain chemicals used in its leaching process, the Company estimates it will incur costs up to $50,000 to neutralize those chemicals at the close of the leaching pond.


27


 

 

Risk

 

Our success depends on our ability to recover precious metals, process them, and successfully sell them for more than the cost of production. The success of this process depends on the market prices of metals in relation to our costs of production. We may not always be able to generate a profit on the sale of gold or other minerals because we can only maintain a level of control over our costs and have no ability to control the market prices. The total cash costs of production at any location are frequently subject to great variation from year to year as a result of a number of factors, such as the changing composition of ore grade or mineralized material production, and metallurgy and exploration activities in response to the physical shape and location of the ore body or deposit. In addition costs are affected by the price of commodities, such as fuel and electricity. Such commodities are at times subject to volatile price movements, including increases that could make production at certain operations less profitable. A material increase in production costs or a decrease in the price of gold or other minerals could adversely affect our ability to earn a profit on the sale of gold or other minerals. Our success depends on our ability to produce sufficient quantities of precious metals to recover our investment and operating costs.  

 

Distribution Methods of the Products

 

The end product of our operations will usually be doré bars. Doré is an alloy consisting of gold, silver and other precious metals. Doré is sent to refiners to produce bullion that meets the required market standard of 99.95% pure gold. Under the terms of refining agreements we expect to execute, the doré bars are refined for a fee and our share of the refined gold, silver and other metals are credited to our account or delivered to our buyers who will then use the refined metals for fabrication or held for investment purposes.  

 

General Market

 

The general market for gold has two principal categories, being fabrication and investment. Fabricated gold has a variety of end uses, including jewelry, electronics, dentistry, industrial and decorative uses, medals, medallions and official coins. Gold investors buy gold bullion, official coins and jewelry. The supply of gold consists of a combination of current production from mining and the draw-down of existing stocks of gold held by governments, financial institutions, industrial organizations and private individuals.

Effect of existing or probable governmental regulations on the business

 

Government Regulation

 

Mining operations and exploration activities in Mexico are subject to the Ministry of Mining federal laws and regulations which govern prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection of the environment, mine safety, hazardous substances and other matters. We have obtained or have pending applications for those licenses, permits or other authorizations currently required to conduct our exploration and other programs. We believe that Mexus Gold US is in compliance in all material respects with applicable mining, health, safety and environmental statutes and the regulations passed thereunder any jurisdiction in which we will operate. We are not aware of any current orders or directions relating to Mexus Gold US with respect to the foregoing laws and regulations.  

 

Environmental Regulation

 

Our gold projects are subject to various Mexican federal laws and regulations governing protection of the environment. These laws are continually changing and, in general, are becoming more restrictive. It is our policy to conduct business in a way that safeguards public health and the environment. We believe that the actions and operations of Mexus Gold US will be conducted in material compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Changes to current Mexican federal laws and regulations where we operate currently, or in jurisdictions where we may operate in the future, could require additional capital expenditures and increased operating and/or reclamation costs. Although we are unable to predict what additional legislation, if any, might be proposed or enacted, additional regulatory requirements could impact the economics of our projects.  

 

Research and Development

 

We do not foresee any immediate future research and development costs.

Costs and effects of compliance with environmental laws

 

Our gold projects are subject to various federal and state laws and regulations governing protection of the environment. These laws are continually changing and, in general, are becoming more restrictive. It is our policy to conduct business in a way that safeguards public health and the environment. We believe that our operations are and will be conducted in material compliance with applicable laws and regulations. The economics of our current projects consider the costs and expenses associated with our compliance policy. 

 

Changes to current state or federal laws and regulations in Mexico, where we operate currently, or in jurisdictions where we may operate in the future, could require additional capital expenditures and increased operating and/or reclamation costs. Although we are unable to predict what additional legislation, if any, might be proposed or enacted, additional regulatory requirements could impact the economics of our projects.  

 

Results of Operations

 

The following management’s discussion and analysis of operating results and financial condition of Mexus Gold US is for the three months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017. All amounts herein are in U.S. dollars. 

 

Three months ended September 30, 2018 Compared with the Three months ended September 30, 2017

 

We had a net loss during the three months ended September 30, 2018 of $575,889 compared to a net loss of $811,362 during the same period in 2017. The decrease in net loss is primarily attributable to (i) a decrease in exploration expenses of $97,658 (ii) a decrease in general and administrative expense of $90,338 (iii) a decrease in stock-based expense – consulting services of $79,244 and (iv) a decrease in impairment of mineral property of $75,000. The decrease in the net loss is partially offset by an increase in interest expense of $118,105.

For the three months ended September 30, 2018, we had revenues of $0 compared to $0 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. 

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses decreased to $413,322 during three months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $757,562 for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to decrease in exploration, general and administrative, stock-based expense – consulting services and impairment of mineral property. 

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

We reported $162,567 of other expense during the three months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $53,800 of other expense during the same period in 2017. 

 

Changes in other income (expense) is mainly attributable an increase in interest expense. The increase is interest expense is due to the issuance of notes payable convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

Six months ended September 30, 2018 Compared with the Six months ended September 30, 2017

 

We had a net loss during the six months ended September 30, 2018 of $960,766 compared to a net loss of $1,574,795 during the same period in 2017. The decrease in net loss is primarily attributable to (i) a decrease in stock-based expense – consulting services of $514,779 (ii) a decrease in impairment of mineral property of $75,000 (iii) an increase in gain on settlement of debt of $160,866 and (iv)an increase in gain on derivative liability of 98,371. The decrease in the net loss is partially offset by an increase in interest expense of $284,788. 

 

Revenue

 

For the six months ended September 30, 2018, we had revenues of $0 compared to $0 for the six months ended September 30, 2017. 


29


 

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses decreased to $897,760 during six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $1,518,968 for the six months ended September 30, 2017. The decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to decrease in stock-based expense – consulting services. 

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

We reported $63,007 of other income during the six months ended September 30, 2018 compared to $55,827 of other expense during the same period in 2017. 

 

Changes in other income (expense) is mainly attributable an increase in interest expense. The increase is interest expense is due to the issuance of notes payable convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At September 30, 2018, we had cash of $1,103 compared to cash of $125,942 at March 31, 2018.  

 

Our property and equipment decreased to $402,662 at September 30, 2018, compared to $470,320 at March 31, 2018. The decrease in equipment is largely due to depreciation expense of $132,177 during the six months ended September 30, 2018 which was partially offset by transfer of equipment under construction to property and equipment of $56,438 and purchase of equipment of $8,081. 

 

Equipment under construction decreased to $17,018 at September 30, 2018, compared to $73,456 at March 31, 2018.

 

Total assets decreased to $1,250,730 at September 30, 2018, compared to $1,499,665 at March 31, 2018. The majority of the decrease in assets relates to depreciation on property and equipment and reduction of cash. 

 

Our total liabilities decreased to $1,013,542 at September 30, 2018, compared to $1,196,568 as of March 31, 2018. The decrease in our total liabilities can be primarily attributed to the settlement of a convertible promissory note with JMJ Financial and the derecognition of the related bifurcated embedded derivative. 

 

Our working capital deficit at September 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018 is $1,012,439 and $1,070,626, respectively. 

 

Our net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 is $494,070 and $424,694, respectively. Our net loss for the six months ended September 30, 2018 of $960,766 was the main contributing factor for our negative cash flow offset mainly by depreciation and amortization of $132,177, stock-based compensation – services of $233,956 and non-cash interest expense of $323,696. 

 

Our net cash used in investing activities for the six months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 is $1,919 and $84,524, respectively, due to the purchase of equipment. During the six months ended September 30, 2018, the Company received $10,000 in cash for the sale of equipment. 

 

Our net cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended September 30, 2018 and 2017 is $367,312 and $476,337, respectively, mainly due to issuance of common stock, notes payable and convertible promissory notes. 

 

The Company is dependent upon outside financing to continue operations. It is management’s plans to raise necessary funds through a private placement of its common stock to satisfy the capital requirements of the Company’s business plan. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to raise the necessary funds, or that if it is successful in raising the necessary funds, that the Company will successfully execute its business plan.

 

Future goals

 

The Santa Elena Prospect (formerly known as Caborca Properties) has become our primary focus. The completion of the initial surface ground construction for a leaching production plant, being an expandable ore leaching pad, solution ponds and production recovery facility, has been tested and will be placed into production. The ore leaching pad has 35,000 tons of ore in place and will be increased in size on a continuing basis to realize the capacity of the production facility.

 

Therefore, our goal for the current year is to increase the cash flow of the Company’s operations through (a) place the current facilities into full commercial production, (b) increase the mineralization of the ore pad from 1 gram per ton gold and 3 grams per ton silver and (c) increase the capacity of the leach pad.


30


 

 

The Company has now scheduled the installation of a crushing/milling recovery plant for the high grade Julio quartz deposit as a result of the values of the assay analysis from the deposit which range from .250 to 5.5 ounces of gold per ton.

 

Therefore, our goal for the current year is to increase the cash flow of the placer mining operation, continue the drilling program which began during 2011, initialize mining operations on the Julio quartz deposit while we conduct a thorough geological study by an independent geological firm of the future potential of other vein deposits located near the Julio deposit.

 

Foreign Currency Transactions

 

The majority of our operations are located in United States and most of our transactions are in the local currency. We plan to continue exploration activities in Mexico and therefore we will be exposed to exchange rate fluctuations. We do not trade in hedging instruments and a significant change in the foreign exchange rate between the United States Dollar and Mexican Peso could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

 

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company’s financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.  

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, the Company is not required to provide this information. 

 

ITEM 4(T). CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

We conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report.

 

Based on this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that as of the evaluation date our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. Our procedures were not designed to ensure that the information relating to our company required to be disclosed in our SEC reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management is currently evaluating the current disclosure controls and procedures in place to see where improvements can be made.

 

ITEM 5. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets; (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors; and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.


31


 

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting based on the framework in “Internal Control Framework” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based upon this evaluation, management has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of September 30, 2018, to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms. Steps that the Company believes it must undertake is to retain a consulting firm to, among other things, design and implement adequate systems of accounting and financial statement disclosure controls during the current fiscal year to comply with the requirements of the SEC. We believe that the ultimate success of our plan to improve our disclosure controls and procedures will require a combination of additional financial resources, outside consulting services, legal advice, additional personnel, further reallocation of responsibility among various persons, and substantial additional training of those of our officers, personnel and others, including certain of our directors such as our committee chairs, who are charged with implementing and/or carrying out our plan.

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as required in Rule 13a-15(b). We are conducting an evaluation to design and implement adequate systems of accounting and financial statement disclosure controls. We expect to complete this review during 2018 to comply with the requirement of the SEC. We believe that the ultimate success of our plan to improve our internal control over financial reporting will require a combination of additional financial resources, outside consulting services, legal advice, additional personnel, further reallocation of responsibility among various persons, and substantial additional training of our officers, personnel and others, including certain of our directors such as our Chairman of the Board and Chief Financial Officer, who are charged with implementing and/or carrying out our plan. It should also be noted that the design of any system of controls and procedures is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.

 

Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls or our internal control over financial reporting, or any system we design or implement in the future, will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the control system’s objectives will be met. The design of any system of controls is based in part on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

 

Changes in Internal Control

 

There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the nine month period ended September 30, 2018 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
