Summary of Silica Leases • The 3 distinct mineral leases on 40,000+ acres contain an estimated 50 billion tons of quartz silica rock of very high purity, as well as an abundance of quartz crystals of gemstone and fiber optic quality. • The British Columbia sites are located near rail facilities connected to port facilities at Vancouver, BC or Prince Rupert, BC. The Idaho site is also close proximity to rail facilities. • Geologic sampling has revealed exceedingly pure samples of silica comprised of 97.7% to 99.3% silica, with iron oxide contents ranging from 0.02% to 0.05%. Majority of prospect is covered with only 2-4 inches of overburden consisting of moss and light soils. • Underlying the main silica deposit, there is an inferred gold deposit varying from 600-800 feet in depth from the surface. • AAFFG is General Partner owning 51% of the limited partnership and 40% of net revenues.
Silica Diverse Uses • Glass (a colorless, high-purity form is called fused silica) • Silica gel (used as desiccants in new clothes, leather goods, electronics) • Raw material for ceramics such as earthenware, stoneware and porcelain. • Raw material for the production of Portland cement. • Food additive in powdered foods or to absorb water • Electronic insulator as the natural oxide coating grows on silicon is a electric insulator, possessing high chemical stability. • Raw material for aerogel for spacecraft, defense. • Extraction of DNA due to its ability to bind to the nucleic acids. • Added to medicinal anti-foaming agent • As hydrated silica in toothpaste (abrasive to fight away plaque.) • As fumed silica as pharmaceutical excipients. Improving flow properties of materials required for modern tablet and capsule
Pure Silica Hi-Tech Uses • Solar Panels created from Silicon Wafers • Optical Components - lenses, prisms, reflectors, mirrors, filters, optical flats. • Analytical Instruments - UV spectrophotometer cells, fire control devices, reticle substrates,interferometer plates • Semiconductor Electronic - Microcircuit substrates, microwave devices, photomasks, sputter plates, excimer lasers • Lasers - beam splitters, brewster windows, medical/industrial systems, Q-switches, UV excimers • Energy - Laser fusion research, isotope separation, solar cell covers. • Spacecraft/Aircraft - Docking light covers, windows, re-entry heat shields, ring laser gyros. • Fiber optics
Potential Silica Buyers/Partners • Chemical Manufactures (DuPont, Dow, BASF, Pharmaceuticals) • Petro-chemical Processors • Solar Industry • Electronics Industry • Glass Industry • Construction Industry
Initial Silica - Production and Pricing • 10,000 metric tons per month mined in Year 1 from each of the 3 North American mines. Overview of pricing of silica production: • Raw decorative silica stone = $120 per ton. • OR crush and grind silica stone into granular silica = $6,000 a ton. • OR grind granular into powder = $7,500 a ton. • OR by heat in a refinery furnace into a gel = $6,500 an ounce ($208,000,000 a ton)
Risk Factors – Silica Production • No customers to purchase the commodities, inadequate demand. • Change in Technology • Environmental, Local Permits • Production Health Risks – Silicosis • Delays due to weather, equipment failure, staffing
Risk Mitigations – Silica Production • Company actively pursuing silica buyers from diverse industries • Company plan to ramp up production and refineries as demand and technology evolves • Company working closely with local and national governments to secure permits and partnerships • Company outsourcing production to experienced mining producers to reduce injury, equipment misuse, and staff training
