Exploration Programs

Nivloc Mine, Nevada Property

In August 2012, the Company filed its initial National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant, independent Mineral Resource Estimate (the "Estimate") on its Nivloc silver and gold project (the "Nivloc Mine Property"). The independent technical report, entitled "NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Nivloc Mine Property, Esmeralda County, Nevada, USA" (the "Technical Report"), was prepared for the Company by Seymour M. Sears, a consulting Geologist based in Sudbury, Ontario; P. J. Hollenbeck, an independent resource modeling Geologist based in Colorado Springs, Colorado; and, A. David Heyl, an independent Geologist based in Denver, Colorado. The Technical Report is available under the IMMC profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com and on the Company's website at www.immc.ca.

The Technical Report concludes that the area tested by the 2011 drilling program on the Nivloc Mine Property contains an Inferred Mineral Resource, at 40 g/t Ag cut-off, of 1,640,000 tonnes at a grade of 106.47 g/t Ag and 0.78 g/t Au.

Further infill drilling at the Nivloc Mine Property, reported in December 2012, verified the thickness and grades that were reported in the Technical Report. Hole 12NL-35, collared from pad 6, tested an area between the 700 and 800 foot levels within the old mine workings and below resource blocks outlined by the 2011 drilling program. Drill highlights from the hole included 115 ft @ 89.1 g/t Ag and 0.33 g/t Au, including 13.5 feet @ 210.0 g/t Ag and 1.03 g/t Au, including 3.0 feet @ 436.0 g/t Ag and 2.57 g/t Au.

The Company also reported results from two more drill holes completed on its Nivloc Mine Property. Holes 12NL-36 and 12NL-37 tested an area between the 600 and 800 ft levels of the historic mine workings, within and near the eastern end of the 2011 43-101 resource area. Drill hole 12NL-36 tested an area between three previously drilled holes, while 12NL-37 was a short step- out hole towards the northeast, although proximal to two other holes completed in 2011. Drill highlights from Hole 12NL-36 included: 70.0 feet @ 103.0 g/t Ag and 0.43 g/t Au, including 1.0 foot @ 335.6 g/t Ag and 1.12 g/t Au. Drill highlights from Hole 12NL-37 included 92.0 feet @ 163.8 g/t Ag and 0.80 g/t Au, including 3.5 feet @ 599.0 g/t Ag and 4.27 g/t Au.

On March 11, 2013 the Company announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, International Millennium Mining Inc. ("IMMI"), executed a Sale and Purchase Agreement (the "Agreement") to acquire the balance of Silver Reserve Corp.'s ("SRC") underlying interests in the Nivloc Mine Property. The Company made a non- refundable 10% deposit of US$42,500 during the first nine months of fiscal 2013. However, this Agreement was terminated October 3, 2013.

Wild Goose Property

The Wild Goose property, encompassing 2,918.62 hectares, is located approximately 23 km northwest of Revelstoke, BC and 5 km north of Mount Copeland (approximately 10 minutes by helicopter from the Revelstoke airport). The property is underlain by the Shuswap Metamorphic Complex. Historical reports identify four (4) distinct lead/silver/zinc showings, several of which have anomalous gold values. Geologically, the showings all occur in the footwall of the easterly striking Bews Creek Fault, which may be a detachment structure.

MMI (mobile metal ion) soil sampling was carried out on the Wild Goose Property in October 2012. The MMI survey was conducted on two grids, each with a line spacing of 100 meters and a sample interval of 25 meters, as part of a program designed to extend the known mineralization on the property and locate previously unknown mineralization. The MMI results revealed that both the north and south MMI grids are almost entirely covered by highly anomalous lead results. In addition, a silver anomaly covers almost the entire north grid.

Management is focused on precious metal polymetallic projects in the Americas and is working towards building a strong, stable and well financed mineral exploration and small mines mining company.
