The report was prepared by DUNCAN BAIN CONSULTING LTD. Duncan Bain is an independent exploration and mining geologist from London, Ontario in Canada.

The gold mine concession of Miramonte Mining is located in Portovelo/Zaruma in the province of El Oro in southern Ecuador. It covers an area of 18.3 hectares and is actively mined. In his report about the two currently active levels, Duncan Bain gives a preliminary estimate of the gold resources in the Miranda Alto concession. It can produce an assessed tonnage of 200,000 tonnes for each of four veins. Current and historical assay values give an average grade of approximately 3g/T gold for a total of approximately 2.4 million grams or 75,000 ounces. With improved mining and milling methods this resources can be taken advantage of. Miramonte Mining could be able to mine the Miranda Alto Project up to 1.6 million tonnes, with a grade of 10g/T gold.
