  • On October 28, 2010 the Company completed their amalgamation with First Source Resources Inc. With the successful completion of the amalgamation, CB Gold commons shares began trading on the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V").

  • On November 3, 2010, the Company announced that SRK Consulting (U.S.), Inc. has been appointed to provide technical advisory services to CB Gold, including compliance of the geological work to Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy ("CIM")guidelines for future incorporation into NI 43-101 reports, modeling the data produced from the drilling, surface, and underground sampling campaigns and applying preliminary economic parameters to the future resource to produce a scoping study level preliminary economic assessment.

  • On November 17, 2010 the Company began its first drilling campaign of up to 13,000 meters on the Real Minera property, which forms a part of CB Gold's Vetas Gold Project. All necessary permits to carry out the drilling program have been received and the Company signed a contract with Kluane Drilling Colombia Ltda to initially provide two diamond drill core rigs.

  • During fiscal 2010 the Company signed eight acquisition agreements for mineral properties at their Vetas Gold Project, Colombia, and by year end had received registration of the title transfer to CB Gold of four of the properties.

Subsequent Events:

Mining Properties

Subsequent to year-end, mining titles on two additional properties were successfully transferred and registered in the name of the Company which now owns 100% of the mining titles on six properties as a result. Two remaining mining titles previously acquired are in the process of being transferred and registered in the name of Leyhat. Subsequent to year-end 2010 the company has signed an additional acquisition offer for a new mining title part of the Vetas Gold Project, which the Company expects to transfer and register during the 2011 fiscal year upon the fulfillment of certain conditions being met by the vendors. In total, the project lands cover a total area of approximately over 1,000 hectares and the project itself is directly and indirectly involving over 100 people of which 11 are geologists.

Geophysics

In February 2011 a geophysics survey program comprising of approximately 63.2 line kilometers was started at Vetas. The company expects to have the result of the geophysics survey in May 2011.

Drill Program

On February 15, 2011 the company announced a summary of its initial drilling program at its Vetas Gold Project, and the discovery of gold-copper-molybdenum porphyry mineralization in three of the first five holes, including DDH10-001, which ended with a 20m interval with a weighted average of 1.38 g/t gold and 1.02 g/t silver. This mineralization was not reported previously in the Vetas – California mining district and was considered a new discovery in the region.

The Company is pursuing a number of different target areas at the Vetas Gold Project, including zones of high grade veins and a main stockwork zone which covers an area estimated to be at least 600m x 300m with up to 300m of vertical extent.

CB Gold Inc. intends to drill a further 15,000 to 20,000m during 2011, and will be increasing the number of rigs at the Vetas Gold Project to target additional areas of mineralization.

Outlook for 2011:

At our Vetas Gold Project we are aggressively pursuing the due diligence and acquisition of the remaining properties that we have under option, as well as working with the mining authorities to consolidate the various titles and permits relating to these properties.

In the upcoming year, we will continue our exploration work – drilling, sampling, mapping and geophysical surveys as well as consolidation of the data generated and will begin preparation for the modelling and technical work required to assess any potential 43-101 compliant resources at the Project.

Given the success to date and the anticipated expansion in exploration activities, as well as the review of a small scale producing operation at the Vetas Gold Project, we will be expanding the CB Gold team to include more technical and financial staff.

With regards to the Norte de Santander Gold Project, CB Gold is in the last phase for the transfer of the remaining concessions under the name of Leyhat Colombia Sucursal. The Company has already discarded some of areas which are deemed to be of insufficient potential, reducing the future costs of land fees and insurance. We will continue with the exploration program started in 2009 and with the assessment of the geological potential of the areas.

In line with the core strategy of consistent growth and development, CB Gold will also evaluate any opportunity in line with our strategy of acquiring and developing precious metal projects that can potentially add value to the Company and its shareholders.
