STAR GOLD CORP.
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JANUARY 31, 2020

 

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS

 

Star Gold Corp. (the “Company”) was initially incorporated as Elan Development, Inc., in the State of Nevada on December 8, 2006. The Company was originally organized to explore mineral properties in British Columbia, Canada but the Company is currently focused on gold, silver and other base metal-bearing properties in Nevada. On April 25, 2008, the name of the company was changed to Star Gold Corp.

 

The Company’s core business consists of assembling and/or acquiring land packages and mining claims the Company believes have potential mining reserves, and expending capital to explore these claims by drilling, and performing geophysical work or other exploration work deemed necessary to move such claims towards development and production. The business is a high-risk business as there is no guarantee that the Company’s exploration work will ultimately discover or produce any economically viable minerals.

 

NOTE 2 – SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

This summary of significant accounting policies is presented to assist in understanding the financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, which is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared by the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information, as well as the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, 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 the Company’s management, all adjustments, consisting of only normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair statement of the interim financial statements have been included. The balance sheet at April 30, 2019 was derived from audited annual financial statements but does not contain all of the footnote disclosures from the annual financial statements. All amounts presented are in U.S. dollars.  Operating results for the three- and nine-month period ended January 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full fiscal year ending April 30, 2020.

 

For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended April 30, 2019.

 

Going Concern

 

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has incurred operating losses since inception. As of January 31, 2020, the Company has limited financial resources with which to achieve the objectives and obtain profitability and positive cash flows. As shown in the accompanying balance sheets and statements of operations, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $11,062,205 and, at January 31, 2020, the Company’s working capital deficit was $41,540. Individuals to whom deferred compensation has accrued have agreed to forego payment until sufficient cash is available for payment of the liability (Note 6). On March 10, 2020, the Company’s Chairman of the Board of Directors loaned the Company $50,000 which provides the Company liquidity to meet short-term financial obligations (Note 10). Achievement of the Company’s objectives will be dependent upon the ability to obtain additional financing, to locate profitable mining properties and generate revenue from current and planned business operations, and control costs. The Company plans to fund its future operations by joint venturing or obtaining additional financing from investors and/or lenders.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires the use of estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant areas requiring the use of management assumptions and estimates relate to long-lived asset impairments and stock-based compensation valuation. Actual results could differ from these estimates and assumptions and could have a material effect on the Company’s reported financial position and results of operations.

STAR GOLD CORP.
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JANUARY 31, 2020

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including financial, operational, technological and other risks associated with operating an emerging exploration mining business, including the potential risk of business failure.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less when acquired to be cash equivalents.

 

Reclamation Bond

 

The Reclamation bond constitutes cash held as collateral for the faithful performance of the bond securing exploration permits and are accounted for on a cost basis.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents and reclamation bond. All instruments are accounted for on a cost basis, which, due to the short maturity of these financial instruments, approximates fair value at January 31, 2020.

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

When required to measure assets or liabilities at fair value, the Company uses a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used. The Company determines the level within the fair value hierarchy in which the fair value measurements in their entirety fall. The categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. Level 1 uses quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities, Level 2 uses significant other observable inputs, and Level 3 uses significant unobservable inputs. The amount of the total gains or losses for the period are included in earnings that are attributable to the change in unrealized gains or losses relating to those assets and liabilities still held at the reporting date.

 

At January 31, 2020 and April 30, 2019, the Company had no assets or liabilities accounted for at fair value on a recurring or nonrecurring basis.

 

Mining Interests and Mineral Exploration Expenditures

 

Exploration costs are expensed in the period in which they occur. The Company capitalizes costs for acquiring and leasing mining properties and expenses costs to maintain mineral rights as incurred. Should a property reach the production stage, capitalized costs would be amortized using the units-of-production method on the basis of periodic estimates of ore reserves. Mining interests are periodically assessed for impairment of value, and any subsequent losses are charged to operations at the time of impairment. If a property is abandoned or sold, its capitalized costs are charged to operations.

 

Pre-development Expenditures

 

Pre-development activities involve costs incurred in the exploration stage that may ultimately benefit production which are expensed due to the lack of evidence of economic development which is necessary to demonstrate future recoverability of these costs. 

 

Equipment

 

Equipment is stated at cost. Significant improvements are capitalized and depreciated. Depreciation of equipment is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, which range from three to seven years. Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Gains or losses on disposition or retirement of property and equipment are recognized in operating expenses.

STAR GOLD CORP.
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
JANUARY 31, 2020

 

Reclamation and Remediation

 

The Company’s operations are subject to standards for mine reclamation that have been established by various governmental agencies. In the period in which the Company incurs a contractual obligation for the retirement of tangible long-lived assets, the Company will record the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability. A corresponding asset will also be recorded and depreciated over the life of the asset. After the initial measurement of an asset retirement obligation, the liability will be adjusted at the end of each reporting period to reflect changes in the estimated future cash flows underlying the obligation. To date, the Company has not incurred any contractual obligation requiring recording either a liability or associated asset.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

The Company periodically reviews its long-lived assets to determine if any events or changes in circumstances have transpired which indicate that the carrying value of its assets may not be recoverable. The Company determines impairment by comparing the undiscounted net future cash flows estimated to be generated by its assets to their respective carrying amounts. If impairment is deemed to exist, the assets will be written down to fair value.

 

Stock-based Compensation

 

The Company estimates the fair value of options to purchase common stock using the Black-Scholes model, which requires the input of some subjective assumptions. These assumptions include estimating the length of time employees will retain their vested stock options before exercising them (“expected life”), the estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock price over the expected term (“volatility”), employee forfeiture rate, the risk-free interest rate and the dividend yield. Changes in the subjective assumptions can materially affect the estimate of fair value of stock-based compensation. Options granted have a ten-year maximum term and varying vesting periods as determined by the Board of Directors. The value of shares of common stock awards is determined based on the closing price of the Company’s stock on the date of the award.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes using the liability method. The liability method requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of (i) temporary differences between financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their basis for tax purposes and (ii) operating loss and tax credit carryforwards for tax purposes. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when management concludes that it is more likely than not that a portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized in a future period.

 

Reclassifications

 

Certain reclassifications have been made to the 2019 financial statements in order to conform to the 2020 presentation. These reclassifications have no effect on net loss, total assets or accumulated deficit as previously reported.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02 Leases (Topic 842). The update modifies the classification criteria and requires lessees to recognize the assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases. The update is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted. Adoption of this update on May 1, 2019 had no impact on the Company’s financial statement.

 

In June 2018, the FASB issued ASU No. 2018-07, Compensation-Stock Compensation, Improvements to Nonemployee Share-Based Payment Accounting. ASU No. 2018-07 expands the scope of the standard for stock-based compensation to include share-based payment transactions for acquiring goods and services from nonemployees. ASU No. 2018-07 became effective for the Company on May 1, 2019. Adoption of this update on May 1, 2019 had no impact on the Company’s financial statement.

Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption. The Company does not discuss recent pronouncements that are not anticipated to have an impact on or are unrelated to its financial condition, results of operations, cash flows or disclosures.

 

NOTE 3 – EARNINGS PER SHARE

 

Basic Earnings Per Share (“EPS”) is computed as net income (loss) available to common stockholders divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through stock options and warrants.

 

The outstanding securities at January 31, 2020 and 2019 that could have a dilutive effect are as follows:

 

   January 31, 2020  January 31, 2019
Stock options   7,145,000    6,695,000 
Warrants   29,039,849    30,654,249 
TOTAL POSSIBLE DILUTIVE SHARES   36,184,849    37,349,249 

 

For the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, the effect of the Company’s outstanding stock options and warrants would have been anti-dilutive and so are excluded in the diluted EPS.

 

NOTE 4 – EQUIPMENT AND MINING INTEREST

 

The following is a summary of the Company’s equipment and mining interest at January 31, 2020 and April 30, 2019:

 

   January 31, 2020  April 30, 2019

Less accumulated depreciation   (3,261)   (29,019)
Equipment, net of accumulated depreciation   1,734    2,983 
Mining interest - Longstreet   542,167    464,124 
TOTAL EQUIPMENT AND MINING INTEREST  $543,901   $467,107 

 

Pursuant to the Longstreet Property Option Agreement with Great Basin Resources, Inc. (“Great Basin”), as amended, which was originally entered into by the Company on or about January 15, 2010 (the “Longstreet Agreement”), the Company leases, with an option to acquire, unpatented mining claims located in the State of Nevada known as the Longstreet Property. Through August 12, 2019, the Company was required to make minimal lease payments in the form of cash and options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

On December 4, 2018, the Company amended the Longstreet Agreement to change the due date of certain expenditures required by that agreement (the “2018 Amendment”). The 2018 Amendment extended the due date of the 2019 expenditures from January 16, 2019 to August 31, 2019 and also extended the due date of the 2020 expenditures from January 16, 2020 to August 31, 2020. No other provisions of the Longstreet Agreement, as previously amended, were affected by the 2018 Amendment.

 

On August 12, 2019, the Company and Great Basin agreed to amend the Longstreet Agreement (the “2019 Amendment”) to eliminate the required property expenditure structure and to implement new consideration for the transfer of the Longstreet Property pursuant to that agreement. The 2019 Amendment eliminated the remainder of the required property expenditures. The 2019 Amendment sets forth Great Basin to transfer title to the Company, of the Longstreet Property upon the Company:

 

a)Adjusting the exercise price to $0.04 on 435,000 existing options to purchase Company common stock from exercise prices ranging from $0.05 to $0.08 per share;

 

b)issuing an additional 500,000 options to purchase Company common stock at the exercise price of $0.04;

 

c)making a cash payment of $50,000 to Great Basin (paid on August 19, 2019) and

 

d)entering into a consulting agreement with Great Basin with a term of eighteen (18) months.

The Company paid Great Basin $22,500 and $37,500 for the three- and nine-months ended January 31, 2020, respectively. The payments to Great Basin are included in “Pre-development expense” for the three- and nine-month periods ended January 31, 2020.

 

The 2019 Amendment also grants the Company the option, to be exercised no later than six (6) months following the first receipt of proceeds from the sale of ore from the Longstreet Property, to purchase one-half of Great Basin’s 3.0% Net Smelter Royalty, on the Longstreet Project, for a payment of $1,750,000.

 

No other provisions of the Longstreet Agreement, as previously amended, were affected by the 2019 Amendment.

 

In addition, the Company is obligated, pursuant to the Longstreet Agreement, to pay an annual advance royalty payment of $12,000 related to the Clifford claims. For the nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, the Company paid the annual $12,000 advance royalty for additional mining interest on the Longstreet Property.

 

On September 20, 2019, the Company paid $67,800 to the United States Forest Service to increase the Reclamation Bond as collateral on the Longstreet Property. The bond is collateral on reclamation of planned drilling activities on the Longstreet Property and is refundable subject to the Company completing defined reclamation actions upon completion of drilling.

 

NOTE 5 – OTHER ASSETS

 

On December 31, 2016, the Company entered into an Option and Lease of Water Rights with Stone Cabin Company, LLC (the “Stone Cabin Water Rights Agreement”).

NOTE 9 – STOCK OPTIONS

 

Options issued for mining interest

 

In consideration for its mining interest (see Note 4), the Company was obligated to issue stock options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock based on “fair market price” which for financial statement purposes is considered to be the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the issue dates. Those costs are capitalized as Mining Interest (Note 4).

 

For the nine months ended January 31, 2020, there were 500,000 options issued for mining interest at the exercise price of $0.04 per share. For the three months ended January 31, 2020 there were no options issued for mining interest. During the nine months ended January 31, 2020, the Company repriced 435,000 existing options to purchase Company common stock, to the exercise price of $0.04 per share, from exercise prices ranging from $0.05 to $0.80. The fair value of the issuance and repricing was $16,044. For the three moths ended January 31, 2020, there were no options issued for mining interest.

 

On January 16, 2019, the Company issued 45,000 stock options for mining interests with fair value of $2,250.  

 

Options outstanding for mining interest totaled 435,000 at April 30, 2019 and 935,000 options at January 31, 2020 and are fully vested. As of January 31, 2020, the remaining weighted average term of the option grants for mining interest was 4.59 years. As of January 31, 2020, the weighted average exercise price of the option grants for mining interest was $0.04 per share.

 

Options issued under the 2011 Stock Option/Restricted Stock Plan

 

The Company established the 2011 Stock Option/Restricted Stock Plan. The Stock Option Plan is administered by the Board of Directors and provides for the grant of stock options to eligible individual including directors, executive officers and advisors that have furnished bona fide services to the Company not related to the sale of securities in a capital-raising transaction.

 

The Stock Option Plan has a fixed maximum percentage of 10% of the Company’s outstanding shares that are eligible for the plan pool, whereby the number of Shares under the plan increases automatically increases as the total number of shares outstanding increase. The number of shares subject to the Stock Option Plan and any outstanding awards will be adjusted appropriately by the Board of Directors if the Company’s common stock is affected through a reorganization, merger, consolidation, recapitalization, restructuring, reclassification dividend (other than quarterly cash dividends) or other distribution, stock split, spin-off or sale of substantially all of the Company’s assets.

 

The Stock Option plan also has terms and conditions, including without limitations that the exercise price for stock options granted under the Stock Option Plan must equal the stock’s fair value, based on the closing price per share of common stock, at the time the stock option is granted. The fair value of each option award is estimated on the date of grant utilizing the Black-Scholes model and commonly utilized assumptions associated with the Black-Scholes methodology. Options granted under the Plan have a ten-year maximum term and varying vesting periods as determined by the Board.

 

The total value of stock option awards is expensed ratably over the vesting period of the employees receiving the awards. As of January 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively, there was no unrecognized compensation cost related to stock-based options and awards. No options were issued under the 2011 Plan during the three and nine months ended January 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Corporate Background

 

The Company was originally incorporated on December 8, 2006, under the laws of the State of Nevada as Elan Development, Inc. On April 25, 2008, the name of the company was changed to Star Gold Corp. Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage company engaged in the acquisition and exploration of precious metal deposit properties and advancing them toward production. The Company is engaged in the business of exploring, evaluating and acquiring mineral prospects with the potential for economic deposits of precious and base metals.

 

Star Gold Corp. currently leases with an option to acquire certain unpatented mining claims located in the State of Nevada which in part make up what we refer to as the “Longstreet Property” (or the “Longstreet Project”). The Longstreet Property in its entirety comprises 142 mineral claims: 75 original optioned claims, of which 70 are unpatented staked claims and five claims leased from local ranchers, pursuant to the “Clifford Lease”; as well as 67 claims subsequently staked by Star Gold. The Longstreet Property covers a total area of approximately 2,500 acres (1,012 ha). The Longstreet Project is at an intermediate stage of exploration.

 

The Company has no patents, licenses, franchises or concessions which are considered by the Company to be of importance. The business is not of a seasonal nature. Because minerals are traded in the open market, the Company has little to no control over the competitive conditions in the industry.

 

Overview of Mineral Exploration and Current Operations

 

Star Gold Corp. is an exploration stage mineral company with no producing mines. Mineral exploration is essentially a research activity that does not produce a product. The Company acquires properties which it believes have potential to host economic concentrations of minerals, particularly gold and silver. These acquisitions have and may take the form of unpatented mining claims on federal land, or leasing claims, or private property owned by others. An unpatented mining claim is an interest, that can be acquired, in the mineral rights on open lands of the federally owned public domain. Claims are staked in accordance with the Mining Law of 1872, recorded with the federal government pursuant to laws and regulations established by the Bureau of Land Management. The Company intends to remain in the business of exploring for mining properties that have the potential to produce gold, silver, base metals and other commodities.

 

The Company will perform basic geological work to identify specific drill targets on the properties, and then collect subsurface samples by drilling to confirm the presence of mineralization (the presence of economic minerals in a specific area or geological formation). The Company may enter joint venture agreements with other companies to fund further exploration and/or development work. It is the Company’s plan to focus on assembling a high-quality group of mid-stage mineral (primarily gold and silver) exploration prospects, using the experience and contacts of the management group. By such prospects, the Company means properties that have been previously identified by third parties, (including prior owners and/or exploration companies), as containing mineral deposits with potential for economic mineralization. Often these properties have been sampled, mapped and sometimes drilled, usually with indefinite results. Accordingly, such acquired projects will have prior exploration history and/or will have strong similarity to a recognized geologic ore deposit model. Geographic emphasis will be place on the western United States.

 

The geologic potential and ore deposit models have been defined and specific drill targets identified the Company’s sole remaining property. The Company’s property evaluation process involves using basic geologic fieldwork to perform an initial evaluation of a property. If the evaluation is positive, the Company seeks to acquire, either by staking unpatented mining claims on open public domain, or by leasing the property from the owner of private property or the owner of unpatented claims. Once acquired, the Company then typically makes a more detailed evaluation of the property. This detailed evaluation involves expenditures for exploration work which may include rock and soil sampling, geologic mapping, geophysics, trenching, drilling or other means to determine if economic mineralization is present on a property.

Portions of the Company’s mining properties are owned by third parties and leased to Star Gold as outlined in the following table:

 

Property name   Longstreet
Third parties   Great Basin Resources, Inc. and Clifford
Number of claims   142  (1)
Acres (approx.)   2,500
Agreements/Royalties    
Royalties   3% Net Smelter Royalty (“NSR”)
Annual advance royalty payment   $12,000

 

(1)Great Basin Resources, Inc. (“Great Basin”) took assignment from MinQuest, Inc., of the 142 claims which are leased to the Company under the Longstreet Agreement (which was also assigned to Great Basin) (Note 4 of the financial statements contained in Item 8) and Clifford owns 5 claims (also Note 4) which are managed by the Company.

 

(2)On August 12, 2019, the Company and Great Basin Resources, Inc. (“Great Basin”) agreed to amend the Longstreet Agreement (Note 4) to eliminate the required property expenditure structure and to implement new consideration for the transfer of the Property pursuant to that agreement (the “2019 Amendment”). The Amendment eliminated the remainder of the required property expenditures set forth in the Longstreet Agreement, as amended.

 

Compliance with Government Regulations

 

Continuing to acquire and explore mineral properties in the State of Nevada will require the Company to comply with all regulations, rules and directives of governmental authorities and agencies applicable to the exploration of minerals in the State of Nevada and the United States Federal agencies.

 

United States

 

Mining in the State of Nevada is subject to federal, state and local law. Three types of laws are of particular importance to the Company’s U.S. mineral properties: those affecting land ownership and mining rights; those regulating mining operations; and those dealing with the environment.

 

Land Ownership and Mining Rights

 

On Federal Lands, mining rights are governed by the General Mining Law of 1872 (General Mining Law) as amended, 30 U.S.C. §§ 21-161 (various sections), which allows the location of mining claims on certain Federal Lands upon the discovery of a valuable mineral deposit and proper compliance with claim location requirements. A valid mining claim provides the holder with the right to conduct mining operations for the removal of locatable minerals, subject to compliance with the General Mining Law and Nevada state law governing the staking and registration of mining claims, as well as compliance with various federal, state and local operating and environmental laws, regulations and ordinances. As the owner or lessee of the unpatented mining claims, the Company has the right to conduct mining operations on the lands subject to the prior procurement of required operating permits and approvals, compliance with the terms and conditions of any applicable mining lease, and compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations and ordinances.

 

Mining Operations

 

The exploration of mining properties and development and operation of mines is governed by both federal and state laws.

 

The State of Nevada likewise requires various permits and approvals before mining operations can begin, although the state and federal regulatory agencies usually cooperate to minimize duplication of permitting efforts. Among other things, a detailed reclamation plan must be prepared and approved, with bonding in the amount of projected reclamation costs. The bond is used to ensure that proper reclamation takes place, and the bond will not be released until that time. The Nevada Department of Environmental Protection, which is referred to as the NDEP, is the state agency that administers the reclamation permits, mine permits and related closure plans on the Nevada property. Local jurisdictions (such as Eureka County) may also impose permitting requirements (such as conditional use permits or zoning approvals).

Environmental Law

 

The development, operation, closure, and reclamation of mining projects in the United States requires numerous notifications, permits, authorizations, and public agency decisions. Compliance with environmental and related laws and regulations requires us to obtain permits issued by regulatory agencies, and to file various reports and keep records of the Company’s operations. Certain of these permits require periodic renewal or review of their conditions and may be subject to a public review process during which opposition to the Company’s proposed operations may be encountered. The Company is currently operating under various permits for activities connected to mineral exploration, reclamation, and environmental considerations. Unless and until a mineral resource is proved, it is unlikely Star Gold Corp. operations will move beyond the exploration stage. If in the future the Company decides to proceed beyond exploration, there will be numerous notifications, permit applications, and other decisions to be addressed at that time.

 

Competition

 

Star Gold Corp. competes with other mineral resource exploration and development companies for financing and for the acquisition of new mineral properties and for equipment and labor related to exploration and development of mineral properties. Many of the mineral resource exploration and development companies with whom the Company competes have greater financial and technical resources. Accordingly, competitors may be able to spend greater amounts on acquisitions of mineral properties of merit, on exploration of their mineral properties and on development of their mineral properties. In addition, they may be able to afford greater geological expertise in the targeting and exploration of mineral properties. This competition could result in competitors having mineral properties of greater quality and interest to prospective investors who may finance additional exploration and development. This competition could adversely impact Star Gold Corp.’s ability to finance further exploration and to achieve the financing necessary for the Company to develop its mineral properties.

 

The Company provides no assurance it will be able to compete in any of its business areas effectively with current or future competitors or that the competitive pressures faced by the Company will not have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition and operating results.

 

Office and Other Facilities

 

Star Gold Corp. currently maintains its administrative offices at 1875 Lakewood Drive, Suite 200, Coeur d’Alene, ID 83814. The telephone number is (208) 664-5066. Star Gold Corp. does not currently own title to any real property.

 

Employees

 

The Company has no employees as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. Star Gold Corp. conducts business largely through independent contractor agreements with consultants.

 

Research and Development Expenditures

 

The Company has not incurred any research expenditures since incorporation

 

Reports to Security Holders

 

The Registrant does not issue annual or quarterly reports to security holders other than the annual Form 10-K and quarterly Forms 10-Q as electronically filed with the SEC, all of which are available on the Company’s website at www.stargoldcorp.com. Electronically filed reports may also be accessed at www.sec.gov.

 

PLAN OF OPERATION

 

The Company maintains a corporate office in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. This is the primary administrative office for the Company and is utilized by Board Chairman Lindsay Gorrill and Chief Financial Officer Kelly Stopher.

 

During the year ended April 30, 2019, the Company completed the following:

 

Wildlife and Biological Baseline Study (WBS)

Cultural and Archeology Study

Plan of Operation submitted to US Forestry Service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Page 18 of 30

 

For the upcoming fiscal year ending April 30, 2020, the Company plans to commence the following activities as it prepares the EIS on the Longstreet Project:

 

Hydrology Study (in progress – dependent on Plan of Operations being approved)

Geochemical analysis – design of program for submission to State of Nevada (in progress)

Plan of Operations Development (Mine Plan, Civil Engineering Designs)

 

Assuming the results of the above-referenced studies are favorable, the Company intends to proceed to the preparation of an EIS and plan of operation for the Longstreet Project (the “Plan of Operations”). The eventual objectives of the EIS and the Plan of Operations are the issuance, by each responsible agency, of the necessary permits to authorize the construction of, and ongoing operations at, an open pit/heap leach mine at the Longstreet Property.

 

The Company anticipates the aforementioned tasks to be completed during 2020, with the EIS prepared in late 2020 and early 2021.

 

Approval of the Longstreet Plan is subject to governmental agency review and may require additional remediation activities.

 

Management believes it can source additional capital in the investment markets in the coming months and years. The Company may also consider other sources of funding, including potential mergers, joint ventures and/or farm-out a portion of its exploration properties.

 

Future liquidity and capital requirements depend on many factors including timing, cost and progress of the Company’s exploration efforts. The Company will consider additional public offerings, private placement, mergers or debt instruments.

 

Additional financing will be required in the future to complete all necessary steps to apply for a final permit. Although the Company believes it will be able to source additional financing there are no guarantees any needed financing will be available at the time needed or on acceptable terms, if at all. If the Company is unable to raise additional financing when necessary, it may have to delay exploration efforts or property acquisitions or be forced to cease operations. Collaborative arrangements may require the Company to relinquish rights to certain of its mining claims.

Pre-development expense for the three months ended January 31, 2020 was $42,331, an increase of $33,337 from 2019 pre-development expense of $8,994.

 

Technical consultant expense increased in 2020 due to a consulting contract executed with Great Basin Resources, Inc. as consideration for amending the Longstreet Property Agreement. Under the terms of the agreement, Great Basin will provide consulting and geologic expertise for a period of 18 months at a monthly rate of $7,500 per month until March 2021.

 

Pre-development expense for the nine months ended January 31, 2020 was $100,094, an increase of $288 from 2019 pre-development expense of $99,806.

 

On November 4, 2019, the United States Department of Agriculture-Forest Service approved the Company’s Longstreet Exploration Project which includes drilling of two test holes for water and a monitoring well to determine sufficient water supply for a potential mine at the Longstreet site.

 

The Company is currently assembling bids from engineering firms for development of a full Plan of Operations and Mine Schedule for development and eventual submission of an application to permit construction of a heap leach mining operation on the Longstreet property. The Company is also soliciting bids for drilling of monitor and water-course wells on the Longstreet property site to determine suitability for future mining and leach pad operations.

CASH FLOWS  January 31, 2020  January 31, 2019
Cash flow used by operating activities  $(290,481)  $(291,899)

Cash flow provided by financing activities   -    - 
Net decrease in cash during period  $(420,281)  $(343,899)

 

As of January 31, 2020, the Company had cash on hand of $20,035. Since inception, the sole source of financing has been sales of the Company’s debt and equity securities. Star Gold Corp. has not attained profitable operations and its ability to pursue any future plan of operation is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing.

 

Star Gold Corp. anticipates continuing to rely on sales of its debt and/or equity securities in order to continue to fund ongoing operations. Issuances of additional shares of common stock may result in dilution to the Company’s existing stockholders. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete any additional sales of equity securities or that it will be able arrange for other financing to fund its planned business activities.

 

On March 10, 2020, the Company’s Chairman of the Board of Directors loaned the Company $50,000 which provides the Company liquidity to meet short-term financial obligations.

The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet its obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing as may be required, or ultimately to attain profitability. Potential sources of cash, or relief of demand for cash, include additional external debt, the sale of shares of the Company’s stock or alternative methods such as mergers or sale of the Company’s assets. No assurances can be given, however, that the Company will be able to obtain any of these potential sources of cash. The Company currently requires additional cash funding from outside sources to sustain existing operations and to meet current obligations and ongoing capital requirements.

 

The Company plans for the long-term continuation as a going concern include financing future operations through sales of our equity and/or debt securities and the anticipated profitable exploitation of the Company’s mining properties. These plans may also, at some future point, include the formation of mining joint ventures with senior mining company partners on specific mineral properties whereby the joint venture partner would provide the necessary financing in return for equity in the property.

 

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

 

The Company has 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 are material to its stockholders.

 

ITEM 3.QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

The Company does not hold any derivative instruments and does not engage in any hedging activities.

 

ITEM 4.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Conclusions of Management Regarding Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

At the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, an evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the President and Principal Executive Officer (“PEO”) and Principal Financial Officer (“PFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operations of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a – 15(e) and Rule 15d – 15(e) under the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, the PEO and the PFO have concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as it was determined that there were material weaknesses affecting our disclosure controls and procedures. 

 

Management of the Company believes that these material weaknesses are due to the small size of the Company’s accounting staff. The small size of the Company’s accounting staff may prevent adequate controls in the future, such as segregation of duties, due to the cost/benefit of such remediation. To mitigate the current limited resources and limited employees, we rely heavily on direct management oversight of transactions, along with the use of external legal and accounting professionals. As the Company grows, management expects to increase the number of employees, which will enable us to implement adequate segregation of duties within the internal control framework.

 

PEO and PFO Certifications

 

Appearing immediately following the Signatures section of this report there are Certifications of the PEO and the PFO. The Certifications are required in accordance with Section 03 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the Section 302 Certifications). This Items of this report which you are currently reading is the information concerning the Evaluation referred to in Section 302 Certifications and this information should be read in conjunction with Section 302 Certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes during the quarter ended January 31, 2020 in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, internal controls over financial reporting.
