Notes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

For the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018

(Unaudited - Expressed in US dollars except where otherwise indicated)


1. NATURE OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND LIQUIDITY:


I-Minerals Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of British Columbia, Canada, in 1984.  The Company is listed for trading on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol “IMA” and the OTCQB marketplace under the symbol “IMAHF”. 

The Company’s principal business is the development of the Helmer-Bovill industrial mineral property (“the Property”) located in Latah County, Idaho.  Since inception, the Company has been in the exploration and evaluation stage but moved into the development stage in fiscal 2018.  In fiscal 2019, the Company reverted back to the evaluation stage as management determined that the Feasibility Study on the property should be considered non-current.  The Helmer-Bovill property is comprised of eleven mineral leases that host potentially economic deposits of feldspar, quartz and kaolinitic clays, primarily kaolinite and halloysite.

Basis of Presentation and Liquidity 

The accompanying unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) for interim financial information as well as Article 10 of Regulation S-X on the basis that the Company will continue as a going concern,which assumes that the Company will be able to meet its obligations and continue its operations for the next year.  Realization values may be substantially different from carrying values as shown and these financial statements do not give effect to adjustments that would be necessary to the carrying values and classification of assets and liabilities should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.  At July 31, 2019, the Company had not yet achieved profitable operations, had an accumulated deficit of $44,242,390 since inception and expects to incur further losses in the development of its business, all of which casts substantial doubt upon the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern and, therefore, that it may be unable to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. 

The financial statements do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.  In the opinion of our management, all adjustments (consisting of only normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial statements have been included.  Operating results for the three months ended July 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending April 30, 2020.  All amounts presented are in US dollars except where otherwise indicated.  For further information refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto for the year ended April 30, 2019 included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on July 29, 2019. 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain the necessary financing to develop the Property and to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due.  Although the Company has been successful in the past in obtaining financing, there is no assurance that it will be able to obtain adequate financing in the future or that such financing will be on terms advantageous to the Company.  The Company has been receiving funds from a company controlled by a director of the Company through promissory notes (Notes 5 and 10).  Management has no formal plan in place to address this concern but considers that the Company will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or promissory notes; however there is no assurance of additional funding being available.  The Company has historically satisfied its capital needs primarily by issuing equity securities and/or promissory notes.  Management plans to continue to provide for its capital needs by issuing equity securities and/or promissory notes. 

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES:


Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measures 

The book value of cash, receivables, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate their fair values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of those instruments.  The fair value hierarchy under US GAAP is based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value which are the following:

8


I-Minerals Inc.

Notes to the Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

For the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018

(Unaudited - Expressed in US dollars except where otherwise indicated)

Level 1 -       quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; 

Level 2 -       observable inputs other than Level I, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active prices whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable; and 

Level 3 -       assets and liabilities whose significant value drivers are unobservable by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

The Company’s promissory notes are based on Level 2 inputs in the ASC 820 fair value hierarchy. The Company calculated the fair value of these instruments by discounting future cash flows using rates representative of current borrowing rates. At July 31, 2019, the promissory notes had a fair value of $24,136,211 (April 30, 2019 – $22,602,379). 

The Company had certain Level 3 liabilities required to be recorded at fair value on a recurring basis in accordance with US GAAP as at April 30, 2019 and 2018.  As at July 31, 2019, the Company’s Level 3 liabilities consisted of share purchase options granted to non-employees.  

The resulting Level 3 liabilities have no active market and are required to be measured at their fair value each reporting period based on information that is unobservable. 

A summary of the Company’s Level 3 liabilities for the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018 is as follows:

 

    2019
$
2018
$
       
  Warrants    
       
  Beginning fair value - 95,570
  Issuance - 1,602
  Change in fair value - (53,433)
  Ending fair value - 43,739
       
  Non-employee options (Note 6(c))    
       
  Beginning fair value 6,191 205,120
  Transfer value on exercise - (23,040)
  Fair value of options on vesting 1,100 -
  Change in fair value 4,314 (83,690)
  Ending fair value 11,605 98,390
       
  Total Level 3 liabilities 11,605 142,129

Certain assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis; that is, the instruments are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value adjustments only in certain circumstances (for example, when there is evidence of impairment). There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis during the periods ended July 31, 2019 and 2018.  

Earnings (Loss) Per Share 

The basic loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted loss per common share is computed similar to basic loss per common share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. For the three months ended July 31, 2019, loss per share excludes 5,979,097 (2018 – 9,914,001) potentially dilutive common shares (related to outstanding options and warrants as well as shares committed to be issued pursuant to the Fifth Promissory Notes) as their effect was anti-dilutive.

New Accounting Pronouncements

Leases

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, as amended, Leases (Topic 842), which requires a lessee to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term greater than twelve months regardless of whether the lease is classified as an operating lease or a financing lease.  Effective May 1, 2019, the Company adopted the new standard under the modified retrospective approach, applying the current-period adjustment method.  Under the transition guidance of the modified retrospective approach there are a number of optional practical expedients made available to simplify the transition of the new standard. The Company has elected the following:

-       The condensed consolidated balance sheets for reporting periods beginning on or after May 1, 2019 are presented under the new guidance, while prior period amounts are not adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with ASC Topic 840, Leases.  The Company did not recognize any cumulative effect adjustment to the opening balance of deficit as there was no impact on adoption of the new standard.

-       The Company has elected to utilize the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance in the standard, which allowed the Company to not reassess (i) whether any expired or existing contracts contain leases, (ii) historical lease classification, and (iii) initial direct costs.

-       The Company has elected to keep leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off of the balance sheet.

Upon adoption, the Company did not record any adjustments to the balance sheet, statement of loss or statement of cash flows. 

Fair Value Measurements 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-13, "Disclosure Framework—Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement" which adds the disclosure of the range and weighted average of significant unobservable inputs used to develop Level 3 fair value measurements. Certain alternatives apply.  This ASU is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2019.  The Company is assessing the impact of this standard. 

3. MINERAL PROPERTY INTEREST AND DEFERRED DEVELOPMENT COSTS:


Helmer-Bovill Property – Latah County, Idaho 

The Company has an undivided 100% interest in 11 State of Idaho mineral leases.  The State of Idaho mineral leases are subject to a 5% production royalty on gross sales.  The mineral leases are in good standing until March 1, 2023 at which time they will be held by us contingent on production.  

In May 2017, the Idaho Department of Lands accepted our operation and reclamation plan.  Together with a water rights permit from the Idaho Department of Water Resources, we were able to proceed with development and construction of the mine, subject to obtaining sufficient financing.  As a result, Management made the decision to begin capitalizing all development expenditures directly related to the Helmer-Bovill Property.  In February 2019, the Company determined that the Feasibility Study should be considered non-current and accordingly, the Company has returned to the evaluation stage for accounting purposes.

  Total promissory notes 24,314,495 22,685,537

The Company has Third Promissory Notes and Fifth Promissory Notes due to a company controlled by a director of the Company (the “Lender”).  The Third Promissory Notes were due on June 30, 2019.  On June 28, 2019, the Company entered into an amending agreement with the Lender extending the maturity date to October 31, 2019 for no consideration.  The Fifth Promissory Notes are due on December 31, 2019. 

In accordance with the guidance of ASC 470-50 and ASC 470-60, the Company determined that the June 28, 2019 extension agreement resulted in a debt modification, not debt extinguishment or troubled debt restructuring.  There was no accounting impact from the debt modification. 

Certain conditions may result in early repayment including immediate repayment in the event a person currently not related to the Company acquires more than 40% of the outstanding common shares of the Company

The Fifth Promissory Notes bear interest at the rate of 14% per annum and during the three months ended July 31, 2019, the Company recorded interest of $80,003 (2018 - $nil).  Interest is payable semi-annually as calculated on May 31st and November 30th of each year.  Interest is to be paid either in cash, in common shares or deemed an advance of principal at the option of the Lender.  During the three months ended July 31, 2019, the Lender elected to have interest payable from December 1, 2018 to May 31, 2019 of $107,336 deemed as advances. 

The Company and the Lender agreed that the Lender is to receive bonus shares equal to 6% of each loan tranche advanced under the Fifth Promissory Notes divided by the Company’s common share market price up to a maximum of 1,054,097 bonus shares.  At July 31, 2019 and April 30, 2019, the Company was committed to issuing 1,054,097 bonus shares to the Lender with a fair value of $106,858. The fair value of the bonus shares was determined by reference to the trading price of the Company’s common shares on the date the advances were received.

The aggregate finance fees (bonus shares) are recorded against the promissory notes balance and are being amortized to the Statement of Loss over the life of the promissory notes using the effective interest method.  The accretion expense in respect of the debt discount recorded on the issuance of bonus shares totalled $25,538 for the three months ended July 31, 2019 (2018 - $nil).  The unamortized debt discount as at July 31, 2019 is $34,810 (April 30, 2019 $60,348).

The Third Promissory Notes and the Fifth Promissory Notes are collateralized by the Company’s Helmer-Bovill Property.

Non-Employee Stock Options  

In accordance with the guidance of ASC 815-40-15, stock options awarded to non-employees that are fully vested and exercisable in Canadian dollars are required to be accounted for as derivative liabilities because they are considered not to be indexed to the Company’s stock due to their exercise price being denominated in a currency other than the Company’s functional currency.  Stock options awarded to non-employees that are not vested are accounted for as equity awards until the terms associated with their vesting requirements have been met.  As at July 31, 2019, there were 50,000 (April 30, 2019 – 100,000) non-employee stock option awards that had not yet vested.  

The non-employee stock options are accounted for at their respective fair values and are summarized as follows for the three months ended July 31, 2019 and 2018:

CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS 

Certain statements contained in this Quarterly Report constitute "forward-looking statements.” These statements, identified by words such as “plan,” "anticipate,” "believe,” "estimate,” "should,” "expect" and similar expressions include our expectations and objectives regarding our future financial position, operating results and business strategy. Forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties, assumptions and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. Such factors include, among others, general business, economic, competitive, political and social uncertainties; the actual results of current exploration and development activities; changes in project parameters as plans continue to be refined; changes in labour costs or other costs of production; future mineral prices; equipment or processes to operate as anticipated; accidents, labour disputes and other risks of the mining industry, including but not limited to environmental hazards, cave-ins, pit-wall failures, flooding, rock bursts and other acts of God or unfavourable operating conditions and losses; delays in obtaining governmental approvals or financing or in the completion of development or construction activities, as well as those factors discussed in the section titled "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K which was filed with the SEC on July 29, 2019.

 

Forward looking statements are based on a number of material factors and assumptions, including the results of exploration/development and drilling activities, the availability and final receipt of required approvals, licenses and permits, that sufficient working capital is available to complete proposed exploration/development and drilling activities, that contracted parties provide goods and/or services on the agreed time frames, the equipment necessary for exploration/development is available as scheduled and does not incur unforeseen break downs, that no labour shortages or delays are incurred and that no unusual geological or technical problems occur. While we consider these assumptions may be reasonable based on information currently available to it, they may prove to be incorrect. Actual results may vary from such forward-looking information for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to risks and uncertainties disclosed in the section titled “Risk Factors” in this Quarterly Report.

 

We intend to discuss in our Quarterly Reports and Annual Reports any events or circumstances that occurred during the period to which such documents relate that are reasonably likely to cause actual events or circumstances to differ materially from those disclosed in this Quarterly Report. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of such factors and to assess in advance the impact of each such factor on our business or the extent to which any factor, or combination of such factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forwarding looking statement.

 

CAUTIONARY NOTE TO U.S. INVESTORS REGARDING ESTIMATES OF MEASURED, INDICATED AND INFERRED RESOURCES AND PROVEN AND PROBABLE RESERVES

 

The terms “mineral reserve”, “proven mineral reserve” and “probable mineral reserve” as used in this Quarterly Report are Canadian mining terms as defined in accordance with Canadian National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101”) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy and Petroleum (the “CIM”) – CIM Definition Standards on Mineral Resources and Mineral Reserves, adopted by the CIM Council, as amended (the “CIM Definition Standards”). These definitions differ from the definitions in the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7 (“SEC Industry Guide 7”) under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Under SEC Industry Guide 7 standards, a “final” or “bankable” feasibility study is required to report reserves, the three-year historical average price is used in any reserve or cash flow analysis to designate reserves, and the primary environmental analysis or report must be filed with the appropriate governmental authority.

 

In addition, the terms “mineral resource”, “measured mineral resource”, “indicated mineral resource” and “inferred mineral resource” are defined in and required to be disclosed by NI 43-101; however, these terms are not defined terms under SEC Industry Guide 7 and are normally not permitted to be used in reports and registration statements filed with the SEC. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of a  mineral deposit in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. “Inferred mineral resources” have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all, or any part, of an inferred mineral resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of inferred mineral resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. Investors are cautioned not to assume that all or any part of an inferred mineral resource exists or is economically or legally mineable. Disclosure of unit measures in a resource is permitted disclosure under Canadian regulations; however, the SEC only permits issuers to report mineralization that does not constitute “reserves” by SEC standards as in place tonnage and grade without reference to unit measures.

PART I

 

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

General

 

We were incorporated under the laws of British Columbia, Canada in 1984. In 2004, we changed our corporate jurisdiction from a British Columbia company to a Canadian corporation.  In December 2011, we amended our articles to change our name from “i-minerals inc.” to “I-Minerals Inc.”

 

The Company is engaged in the exploration, evaluation and development of our Helmer-Bovill industrial minerals property (the “Helmer-Bovill Property”).  The Helmer-Bovill Property, in which we hold a 100% interest, is comprised of 11 mineral leases totaling 5,140.64 acres located approximately 6 miles northwest of Bovill, Latah County, Idaho.  Since inception, the Company has been in the exploration stage but moved into the development stage in fiscal 2018.  In fiscal 2019, the Company reverted back to the evaluation stage.

 

We acquired the Helmer-Bovill Property from Idaho Industrial Minerals (“IIM”) pursuant to an Assignment Agreement with Contingent Right of Reverter (the “IIM Agreement”) dated August 12, 2002, as amended August 10, 2005, August 10, 2008 and January 21, 2010, between I-Minerals USA (formerly Alchemy Kaolin Corporation), our wholly owned subsidiary, and IIM.  Under the terms of the IIM Agreement, we issued a total of 1,800,000 common shares to IIM.

 

Our principal executive office is located at Suite 880, 580 Hornby Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and our telephone number is (877) 303-6573.  Our operations office is located at 13403 N. Government Way, #102, Hayden, Idaho.

 

To date, we have not earned significant revenues from the operation of our Helmer-Bovill Property.  Accordingly, we are dependent on debt and equity financing as our primary source of operating working capital.  Our capital resources are largely determined by the strength of the junior resource markets and by the status of our projects in relation to these markets, and its ability to compete for investor support of its projects.

 

Our Principal Projects

 

Our activities at the Helmer-Bovill Property are focused on developing the Bovill Kaolin Project and the WBL Tailings Project.

 

The Bovill Kaolin Project

 

Our lead project, the Bovill Kaolin Project, is a strategically located long term resource of quartz, potassium feldspar (“K-spar”), halloysite and kaolinite formed through weathering of a border phase of the Idaho Batholith causing all minerals to be contained within a fine white clay-sand mixture referred to as “primary clay.” The Bovill Kaolin Project is located within 3 miles of state highways with electricity and natural gas already at the property boundary.

 

Since 2010, our exploration work has focused diamond drilling on the Bovill Kaolin Project.  To date, a total of 322 diamond drill holes have been drilled totaling 35,909 feet.  As a result of these drill campaigns, four deposits have been identified: Kelly’s Hump, Kelly’s Hump South, Middle Ridge and WBL.

 

In June 2014, we completed an updated pre-feasibility study on the Bovill Kaolin Project (the “2014 PFS”) and on March 8, 2016, we announced the economic results of our initial feasibility study (the “2016 FS”).  However, based on the results of an updated independent market study it is apparent that fundamental changes in the businesses that consume our minerals has taken place over the past several years.  These changes include offshoring and reformulation wherein industries that had previously used K-spar for example have reformulated their production batches using alternate minerals.  Markets do exist for all of the minerals contained within the Bovill Kaolin Project but not in the volumes contemplated in the 2016 FS.  Accordingly, the 2016 FS is considered not to be current and should not be relied upon and previously disclosed proven and probable reserve estimates for the Bovill Kaolin Project should no longer be classified or relied upon as such.

17


Although the reserves and subsequent financial analyses disclosed in the 2016 FS are no longer current, the mineral resources stated in the 2016 FS remain current and have recently been re-stated in a standalone technical report prepared by SRK Consulting (U.S.) recently completed an updated resource estimate.  The updated mineral resource statement from this report contains the same tonnages and grades as were disclosed in the 2016 FS and is summarized below.

 

In addition, the Company engaged MillCreek Engineering of Salt Lake City, Utah to estimate the capital and operating costs for a smaller plant capable of producing up to 20,000 tons of metakaolin and 10,000 tons of halloysite per year.  The estimated Operating Costs and Capital Cost fell in line with expectations and the Company has retained MillCreek to complete a Pre-Feasibility Study of a metakaolin and halloysite operation.  It is envisioned that the sand fraction (K-spar and quartz) will be screened and sold into lower value industrial applications. 

 

  • Updated Measured and Indicated Resource Estimate
    • Measured Resources of 5.7 million tons containing 76.5% quartz/K-spar sand, 12.3% Kaolinite and 4.0% Halloysite.
    • Indicated Resources of 15.5 million tons containing 57.0% quartz/K-spar sand, 15.5% Kaolinite and 2.8% Halloysite.
    • 667,000 tons of contained halloysite, 3,119,000 tons of contained kaolinite and 13,235,000 tons of contained quartz/K-spar. 

In May 2017, the Idaho Department of Lands (“IDL”) accepted our operation and reclamation plan.  We have since re-engaged with the IDL to discuss changes to the operation and reclamation plan given the reduced impacts of the smaller operation.

 

Plan of Operation

 

During the next twelve months, our plan of operation is to complete a Prefeasibility study (“PFS”) being undertaken by MillCreek Engineering.  In May 2017, the IDL accepted our Operation and Reclamation Plan on the Bovill Kaolin Project.  We have advised the IDL we will be amending our Operation and Reclamation plan to reflect the smaller operation. Once the PFS is complete and we have power demands estimated we will discuss our power needs with Avista, the local utility, to see if the electricity grid requires upgrading as was required for the larger of our mineral operation. In the interim we will continue to strengthen our customer list and continue discussions to raise the capital to fund the mine construction

 

Outlook

 

Our focus continues to be the detailed assessment of all of our mineral assets and advancing the Bovill Kaolin Project towards production.  The Company has elected to initially focus on the development of a metakaolin and halloysite operation.  After receiving operating cost and capital cost estimates from MillCreek Engineering it has engaged MillCreek to complete a PFS.  The envisaged plant would produce 10,000 tons of halloysite and 20,000 tons of metakaolin annually.  Mine Development Associates of Reno (“MDA”) have been engaged to amend the mine plan to target the shallower more clay rich (kaolin and halloysite) sections of the deposit.  Preliminary results from MDA are indicating restricting the pit depths to focus on the near surface, more weathered material should have a material impact on the halloysite- kaolinite yield. Completion of the prefeasibility study is expected in the fourth calendar quarter of 2019.

 

With respect to work at GMT, a bulk sample of approximately 60 tons of primary clay material is being processed.  Changes to the process flow sheet as compared with prior GMT pilot plants include the installation of a hammer mill at the front end of the circuit and the incorporation of a new hydrocyclone processing step to improve clay/sand separation.  Pilot scale hydrocyclone test work resulted in the clay yields increasing to about 30% as compared with a yield of 22% as demonstrated in previous pilot plant work.  Successful implementation of the hydrocyclone processing should result in increased production of ULTRA HallopureÒ and HalloPureÒ halloysite products and kaolin for metakaolin production beyond the rates achieved in pilot plant work associated with the feasibility study.  The pilot plant is nearing completion with kaolin about to be shipped for calcination into a metakaolin product and halloysite being sent for additional beneficiation for testing in air and gas filtration applications. Results from the current pilot plant will be incorporated into the ongoing PFS by MillCreek Engineering.

 

Concrete test results using our fine ground metakaolin have been received from CTL | Thomson.  Excellent strength numbers were generated while staying within the ASTM C-618 water demand requirements.  This batch of metakaolin being tested was produced using flash calcination technologies and then fine ground.  Management believes a highly reactive metakaolin would be an attractive pozzolan in the Pacific Northwest as pozzolans with comparable characteristics are too expensive for use in many cement applications.

 

At present we have, or will have shortly, inventory of all minerals for distribution to customers.

18


 

Sample requests for halloysite have come from North America, Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia showing both the scarcity of halloysite in general and the quality of I-Minerals halloysite in particular.  While we currently have inventory of ULTRA HallopureÒ and HalloPureÒ several companies have advanced their halloysite consuming products to near commercialization and have indicated a need for multiple tons of halloysite to complete the commercialization process. 

 

Results of Operation 

Three months ended July 31, 2019 

We recorded a loss of $1,231,824 ($0.01 per share) for the three months ended July 31, 2019 as compared to a loss of $798,914 ($0.01 per share) for the three months ended July 31, 2018.  The increase in the loss recorded for the period ended July 31, 2019 as compared to the period ended July 31, 2018 is the net result of changes to a number of expenses.  Of note are the following items: 

  • Management and consulting fees of $56,944 (2018 - $49,084) are comprised of fees to manage our Company and stock-based compensation.  The stock-based compensation recognized in the current period was $858 (2018 - $nil).  Approximately 75% of the fees to manage our Company are charged to management and consulting fees and the other 25% is charged to mineral property expenditures and/or capitalized to mineral property interest.
  • Mineral property expenditures of $279,238 (2018 - $53,566) are costs incurred on our Helmer-Bovill Property.  The expenses increased this period compared to the 2018 period as we are now expensing all mineral property expenditures while in the 2018 period, we capitalized $173,089 of development costs.  The main components of costs during the current period included engineering and consulting ($74,899) and metallurgy ($119,756).  During the current period, the Company continued to optimize the metallurgical processes and detailed engineering. 
  • General and miscellaneous expenses of $63,883 (2018 - $147,023) are comprised of office and telephone expenses, payroll taxes, medical benefits, insurance premiums, travel expenses, promotional expenses, shareholder communication fees, transfer agent fees and filing fees.  The decrease during the current period was due to a reduction in shareholder communications fees and severance costs.
  • Professional fees of $62,368 (2018 – $74,087) include legal fees, audit fees and financial consulting fees. 
  • Accretion expense of $25,538 (2018 - $62,331) is the amortization of the fair value of bonus shares and bonus warrants issued to the lender of the promissory notes.  The bonus shares and bonus warrants are amortized over the life of the promissory notes. 
  • Interest expense of $737,510 (2018 - $550,631) is from promissory notes that bear interest at the rates of 12%-14% per year.  Interest increased as additional funds were advanced.
  • We recorded a loss on change in fair value of derivative liabilities of $4,314 (2018 – gain of $137,123).  The change in fair value of derivative liabilities is based on the change in remaining term of derivative instruments and our stock price.  The derivatives include warrants as well as stock options granted to non-employees.  The derivative liabilities do not represent cash liabilities.  During Q3 fiscal 2019, the derivative warrants expired unexercised. 

Liquidity and Capital Resources


Our aggregate operating, investing and financing activities during the three months ended July 31, 2019 resulted in a net cash outflow of $166,693 (2018 – outflow of $43,672).  As at July 31, 2019, we had a working capital deficiency of $25,087,260. 

 

During the three months ended July 31, 2019, $1,198,790 was used in operations before changes in non-cash operating working capital items (2018 - $875,227).  During the three months ended July 31, 2019, we spent $7,611 on investing activities (2018 - $202,163) and we received $245,000 from financing activities (2018 - $451,084).

 

We have been financed by advances pursuant to promissory notes advanced by BV Lending LLC, an entity controlled by Allen L. Ball, a member of our Board of Directors and our largest shareholder (the “Lender”).  During the three months ended July 31, 2019, the Company was receiving advances pursuant to the Fifth Promissory Notes.  As at July 31, 2019, the principal balance of the promissory notes was $24,349,305.

 

On September 11, 2018, the Company entered into a loan agreement with the Lender pursuant to which up to $2,500,000 will be advanced to the Company in tranches (the “Fifth Promissory Notes”).  As at July 31, 2019, the Company had received $2,065,000.  Subsequent to July 31, 2019, the Company received an additional $280,000.  An additional $155,000 of advances are available under the Fifth Promissory Notes.

The Third Promissory Notes have a maturity date of October 31, 2019.  The Fifth Promissory Notes have a maturity date of December 31, 2019.

 

We have not as yet put into commercial production any mineral properties and as such have no operating revenues.  Accordingly, we are dependent on debt and equity financing as the primary source of operating working capital.  Our capital resources are largely determined by the strength of the junior resource markets and by the status of our projects in relation to these markets, and our ability to compete for investor support of our projects.

 

We remain dependent on additional financing to fund development requirements on the Helmer-Bovill property and for general corporate costs.  With respect to funds required for capital cost items, State-sponsored debt financing instruments may be available on attractive terms, and we intend to pursue such financial instruments to cover portions of the capital costs associated with placing the Bovill Kaolin deposits into production. 

 

We do not have the ability to internally generate sufficient cash flows to support our operations for the next twelve months.  We have been receiving funds from a company controlled by a director of the Company through promissory notes.  We have no formal plan in place to address this going concern issue but consider that we will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or debt financing; however, there is no assurance of additional funding being available.  As a result, our auditors included an emphasis of matter note in their report on the financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2019 about our ability to continue as a going concern. 

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no significant 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 that is material to shareholders.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Measurement Uncertainty

 

The preparation of these consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires us 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 consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  We regularly evaluate estimates and assumptions related to the useful life and recoverability of long lived assets, stock-based compensation, valuation of convertible debentures and derivative liabilities, and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances.  We base our estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources.  The actual results experienced by us may differ materially and adversely from our estimates.  To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.  The most significant estimates with regard to our condensed consolidated financial statements relate to the determination of fair values of derivative liabilities and stock-based transactions.

 

Stock-based Compensation 

We account for all stock-based payments and awards under the fair value based method.  Stock-based payments to non-employees are measured at the fair value of the consideration received, or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, or liabilities incurred, whichever is more reliably measurable. 

The fair value of stock-based payments to non-employees is periodically re-measured until the counterparty performance is complete, and any change therein is recognized over the vesting period of the award and in the same manner as if we had paid cash instead of paying with or using equity based instruments.  The cost of the stock-based payments to non-employees that are fully vested and non-forfeitable as at the grant date is measured and recognized at that date, unless there is a contractual term for services in which case such compensation would be amortized over the contractual term. 

We account for the granting of stock options to employees using the fair value method whereby all awards to employees will be recorded at fair value on the date of the grant.  The fair value of all stock options is expensed over their vesting period with a corresponding increase to additional paid-in capital. 

Compensation costs for stock-based payments that do not include performance conditions are recognized on a straight-line basis. Compensation cost associated with a share based award having a performance condition is recognized on the probable outcome of that performance condition during the requisite service period. Share based awards with a performance condition are accrued on an award by award basis.

20


We use the Black-Scholes option valuation model to calculate the fair value of stock options at the date of the grant. Option pricing models require the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected price volatility. Changes in these assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates.  

Derivative Liabilities 

We evaluate our financial instruments and other contracts to determine if those contracts or embedded components of those contracts qualify as derivatives to be separately accounted for in accordance with ASC 815. The result of this accounting treatment is that the fair value of the embedded derivative is marked-to-market at each balance sheet date and recorded as a liability and the change in fair value is recorded in the consolidated statement of loss.  Upon conversion or exercise of a derivative instrument, the instrument is marked to fair value at the conversion date and then that fair value is reclassified to equity. 

The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.  Derivative instruments that become subject to reclassification are reclassified at the fair value of the instrument on the reclassification date.  Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current as settlement of the derivative instruments are at the option of the holder. 

We use the Black-Scholes option valuation model to value derivative liabilities.  This model uses Level 3 inputs in the fair value hierarchy established by ASC 820 Fair Value Measurement. 

Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs 

Mineral property acquisition costs are capitalized when incurred.  Acquisition costs include cash consideration and the fair market value of shares issued on the acquisition of mineral property claims. 

Costs related to the development of our mineral reserves are capitalized when it has been determined an ore body can be economically developed.  The development stage begins when an ore body is determined to be economically recoverable based on proven and probable reserves and appropriate permits are in place, and ends when the production stage or exploitation of reserves begins.  Major mine development expenditures are capitalized, including primary development costs such as costs of building access ways, tailings impoundment, development of water supply and infrastructure developments.

 

Exploration costs include those relating to activities carried out (a) in search of previously unidentified mineral deposits, or (b) at undeveloped concessions.  Pre-development activities involve costs incurred in the exploration stage that may ultimately benefit production that are expensed due to the lack of evidence of economic development, which is necessary to demonstrate future recoverability of these expenses.  Secondary development costs are incurred for preparation of an ore body for production in a specific ore block or work area, providing a relatively short-lived benefit only to the mine area they relate to, and not to the ore body as a whole.

 

Once production has commenced, capitalized costs will be depleted using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the proven and probable reserves. If mineral properties are subsequently abandoned or impaired, any capitalized costs will be charged to the Consolidated Statements of Loss in that period.

 

We assess the carrying cost of our mineral properties for impairment whenever information or circumstances indicate the potential for impairment.  Such evaluations compare estimated future net cash flows with our carrying costs and future obligations on an undiscounted basis.  If it is determined that the future undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value of the property, a write down to the estimated fair value is charged to the Consolidated Statements of Loss for the period.  Where estimates of future net cash flows are not available and where other conditions suggest impairment, management assesses if the carrying value can be recovered. 

For significant exploration and development projects, interest is capitalized as part of the historical cost of developing and constructing assets in accordance with ASC 835-20. Interest is capitalized until the asset is ready for service. Capitalized interest is determined by multiplying the Company’s weighted-average borrowing cost on general debt by the average amount of qualifying costs incurred. Once an asset subject to interest capitalization is completed and placed in service, the associated capitalized interest is expensed through depletion or impairment.
