Major Gold Deposits in Africa • Focused on gold in Ghana and Tanzania – Major Gold Deposits in Africa • Focused on gold in Ghana and Tanzania – 2 stable countries • Quality gold projects • 400, 000 oz on a fully permitted past producer in Ghana with a 30 year mining lease 2 nd Top Gold Producer 3 rd Top Gold Producer Largest Gold Producer 3

Gold Projects, Tanzania: Gold & Diamonds Lake Victoria Goldfields: Area with over 50 million Gold Projects, Tanzania: Gold & Diamonds Lake Victoria Goldfields: Area with over 50 million oz in gold reserves • Itilima Project (43 -101): gold and diamonds • Lwenge/Geita Gold Project • Kishapu • Lalago Other properties in Tanzania: • Vukene • Kilindi 4

Priority Project: Sian, Ghana Sian on Ashanti Gold Belt • Sian contains two previous Priority Project: Sian, Ghana Sian on Ashanti Gold Belt • Sian contains two previous open pit mines and a 400, 000 oz resource at 2. 3 g/t • 30 km NE of Newmont’s Akyem 8. 7+ million oz deposit • Production capital costs minimized by existing mine infrastructure • Drill results show significant exploration upside potential Other Ghana Projects: • Kwahu Praso (Ashanti Belt) • Kaniago (Asankrangwa Belt) 5

Priority Project: Sian Presentation will focus on priority project: Sian, Ghana • Most advanced, Priority Project: Sian Presentation will focus on priority project: Sian, Ghana • Most advanced, early term ROI • Sian: past gold producer with a 93% gold recovery rate • Just 30 km north of Newmont Mining’s 8. 7+ million oz Akyem gold deposit on the Ashanti Gold Belt • Infrastructure, power, roads, water, and CIL (Carbon in Leach) plant • 30 year renewable mining lease with 17 years remaining • Sian resource has the potential to reach over 1 million oz in the next 12 months 6

Aiming for a Multimillion oz Deposit Sian • Sian: 50 sq km of prime Aiming for a Multimillion oz Deposit Sian • Sian: 50 sq km of prime ground in elephant country Gold resource on the Sian project: • 400, 000 oz resource • Additional 700, 000 oz in gold potential Only 10% drilled to date • Dixcove Granites – part of the geological structure 7

Focus on Sian What we need to do concurrently: 1. Prove up a minimum Focus on Sian What we need to do concurrently: 1. Prove up a minimum of 1 million oz of gold on direct extensions of the Sian gold deposit and drill test new zones to: - Increase indicated resource (infill drilling and drilling at depth) - Upgrade to a measured category (definition drilling) - Complete a scoping study and update the feasibility study (bankable) 1. Engineering review of CIL plant to determine costs of re-commissioning (bankable report) 2. Airborne VTEM survey over Sian to accelerate drilling 18

Goal: Gold Production on Sian by the end of 2010 Targets and objectives • Goal: Gold Production on Sian by the end of 2010 Targets and objectives • Expected initial production: 12 months away – Initially 2, 000 tonnes / day x 300 days = 600, 000 tonnes per year – 93% gold recovery rate – 600, 000 tonnes at 2. 3 g/t = 44, 516 oz of gold in year 1 • Expected revenues – Assume gold at $850 USD per oz – Gross revenue at $850 per oz = $38 million USD – Production cost at $350 per oz = $16 million USD • Revenue net of costs per oz – year 1 – $22 million USD 19

Technical Partnerships • Midlands team: best in geology, best in operations – We know Technical Partnerships • Midlands team: best in geology, best in operations – We know Africa well • Midlands is partnered with a strong engineering company to move the Sian project forward • Engineering partner knows Africa well and has – – – Operational experience Project management experience Technical and engineering expertise Knowledge of Ghana Track record in bringing properties to production 20

Financing Requirements For Sian Up to $5 million USD required in the next 12 Financing Requirements For Sian Up to $5 million USD required in the next 12 months To achieve the following: – At least 1 million oz – A scoping study and a bankable updated feasibility study – A bankable technical report on the existing CIL plant – A VTEM air magnetic and radiometric survey to accelerate further drilling to grow the resource – Take Sian to a production decision 21

Use of Funds: $5 million Sian • $3 million – up to 20, 000 Use of Funds: $5 million Sian • $3 million – up to 20, 000 metres of drilling – – Definition drilling: 10, 000 metres Infill drilling: 5, 000 metres Engineering and condemnation drilling: 3, 000 metres Contingency: 2, 000 metres • $500, 000 – engineering metallurgical testing • $250, 000 – scoping study and update of feasibility study • $250, 000 – airborne VTEM and radiometric survey • $200, 000 – resource/reserve calculation and update • $800, 000 – working capital 22
