Indicate by check mark whether the issuer (1) has filed all reports required to be filed by Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 during the preceding 12 months (or for such shorter period that the issuer was required to file such reports), and (2) has been subject to such filing requirements for the past 90 days:  Yes [X]  No [   ]


Indicate by check mark whether the registrant has submitted electronically and posted on its corporate Web site, if any, every Interactive Data File required to be submitted and posted pursuant to Rule 405 of Regulation S-T during the preceding 12 months (or for such shorter period that the registrant was required to submit and post such files).   Yes [   ]  No [X]


Indicate by check mark whether the registrant is a large accelerated filer, an accelerated filer, a non-accelerated filer, or a smaller reporting company.  (Check one):


Large accelerated filer [   ]

Accelerated filer [   ]

Non-accelerated filer [   ]

Explanatory Note: Pursuant to Rule 405(a)(2) of Regulation S-T, the registrant is relying upon the applicable 30-day grace period for the initial filing of its first Interactive Data File required to contain detail-tagged footnotes or schedules. The registrant intends to file the required detail-tagged footnotes or schedules by the filing of an amendment to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q within the 30-day period.


The number of shares of the issuer’s common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2012 was 69,249,355.



The Registrant is filing this Form 10-Q pursuant to the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s ORDER UNDER SECTION 17A AND SECTION 36 OF THE SECURITIES EXCHANGE ACT OF 1934 GRANTING EXEMPTIONS FROM SPECIFIED PROVISIONS OF THE EXCHANGE ACT AND CERTAIN RULES THEREUNDER (Release No. 68224/November 14, 2012). The Registrant is relying on this ORDER based upon its good faith belief that due to the incapacitation of the Registrant’s major shareholder (who resides in New York) due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, he was unable to provide necessary direction and transactional information to the Registrant’s Board of Directors in a timely manner necessary for the preparation of this Form 10-Q. This delay resulted in the Registrant’s inability to prepare and file this Form 10-Q on or before November 19, 2012.

STEELE RESOURCES CORPORATION
(AN EXPLORATION STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
SEPTEMBER 30, 2012



NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION


Business Activity


Steele Resources Corporation (formerly Steele Recording Corporation) ("SRC", the "Company", "we", "us", or "our") is a U.S. exploration and mining company, incorporated in the state of Nevada on February 12, 2007. On June 17, 2010 the Company entered into and consummated a Plan and Agreement of Reorganization between the Company and Steele Resources, Inc. and certain stockholders of Steele Resources, Inc. (the “Reorganization”). Pursuant to the Reorganization, the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Steele Resources, Inc., a Nevada Corporation (“SRI”), formed in May 2010. From an accounting perspective, SRI was the acquirer.


Steele Resources is a mining and Exploration Company focused on identifying and developing advanced stage precious metal exploration projects which show potential to achieve full production. The overall business strategy is to identify, explore and develop and operate mineral exploration properties in the Western United States. The business strategy is to identify and evaluate properties which have considerable amounts of exploration already completed and potential and inferred resources identified.  SRC then selects the properties which offer the best potential for producing significant gold and silver reserves and offer favorable conditions, for the future efficient development of the property to reach a production stage.


The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of the Company included herein have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and in accordance with the instructions for Form 10-Q under Article 8.03 of Regulation S-X. These statements do not include all of the information and notes to the financial statements required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three and nine month period ended September 30, 2012, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. The unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, as filed with Securities and Exchange Commission.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Basis of Presentation and Going Concern


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared under the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has incurred a net operating loss of $4,660,230 from May 27, 2010 (inception) through September 30, 2012 and had a working capital deficiency of $2,449,222 as of September 30, 2012. The Company does not have sufficient cash at September 30, 2012 to fund normal operations for the next 12 months. The Company has no recurring source of revenue and its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise capital to fund its future exploration and working capital requirements. The Company’s plans for the long-term attainment and continuation as a going concern include financing the Company’s future operations through sales of its common stock, entering into debt or line of credit facilities, sales of gold produced in mining activities and the eventual profitable exploitation of its mining properties. Additionally, the current capital markets and general economic conditions in the United States are significant obstacles to raising the required funds. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company is currently investigating a number of alternatives for raising additional capital with potential investors, lessees and joint venture partners. Should management fail to obtain financing, the Company may curtail its operations.


These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Because of our net loss and our negative working capital position, our independent auditors, in their report on our audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011, expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that could result from the outcome of this uncertainty.


Principles of Consolidation


The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Steele Resources, Inc., a Nevada Corporation. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.


Fair Value Measurements


Assets and liabilities recorded at fair value in the consolidated balance sheet are categorized based upon the level of judgment associated with the inputs used to measure the fair value. Level inputs, as defined by ASC 820-10, are as follows:


·

Level 1 quoted in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.


·

Level 2 other significant observable inputs for the assets or liabilities through cooboration with market data at the measurement date.


·

Level 3 significant unobservable inputs that reflect management’s best estimate of what market participants would use to price the assets or liabilities at the measurement date.

Derivative liability for conversion features for the year ended September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were valued using the Black-Scholes Option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 0.5 to 1 year, risk free interest rate of 1%, dividend yield of 0, and expected volatility of 0.1%.

$  90,500


For certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and accrued expenses the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to their short maturities. The carrying amounts of the Company’s notes payable approximates fair value based on the prevailing interest rates.


Derivative Financial Instruments


The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks.


The Company reviews the terms of convertible debt, equity instruments and other financing arrangements to determine whether there are embedded derivative instruments, including embedded conversion options that are required to be bifurcated and accounted for separately as a derivative financial instrument. Also, in connection with the issuance of financing instruments, the Company may issue freestanding options or warrants that may, depending on their terms, be accounted for as derivative instrument liabilities, rather than as equity. The Company may also issue options or warrants to non-employees in connection with consulting or other services.




12






Derivative financial instruments are initially measured at their fair value. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instruments are initially recorded at their fair values and are then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair values reported as charges or credits to income. For option-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model to value the derivative instruments. To the extent that the initial fair values of the freestanding and/or bifurcated derivative instrument liabilities exceed the total proceeds received, an immediate charge to income is recognized, in order to initially record the derivative instrument liabilities at their fair value.


The discount from the face value of a convertible debt or equity instrument resulting from allocating some or all of the proceeds to the derivative instrument, together with the stated interest on the instrument, is amortized over the life of the instrument through periodic charges to income, using the effective interest method.


The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is reassessed at the end of each reporting period. If reclassification is required, the fair value of the derivative instrument, as of the determination date, is reclassified. Any previous charges or credits to income for changes in the fair value of the derivative instrument are not reversed. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within twelve months of the balance sheet date.


Use of Estimates and Assumptions


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected. Management believes the assumptions underlying the consolidated financial statements are reasonable.


Exploration Stage Enterprise


The Company is in the exploration stage of operation, as it devotes substantially all of its efforts to acquiring and exploring mining interests that management believes should eventually provide sufficient net profits to sustain the Company’s existence.





13






Mining Exploration Costs


Exploration costs are expensed in the period in which they occur. The Company capitalizes costs for acquiring mineral properties and expenses costs to maintain mineral rights and leases as incurred. Should a property reach the production stage, these capitalized costs would be amortized using the units-of-production method on the basis of periodic estimates of ore reserves. Mineral properties are periodically assessed for impairment of value, and any subsequent losses are charged to operations at the time of impairment. If a property is abandoned or sold, its capitalized costs are charged to operations.  


Net (Loss) Per Share


The Company calculates net income (loss) per share as required by Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 260-10, Earnings per Share. Basic earnings (loss) per share are calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share are calculated by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common stock equivalents outstanding. During the periods when they are anti-dilutive, common stock equivalents, if any, are not considered in the computation.



NOTE 3 - PROPERTIES


Pony Project: On February 4, 2011, SRI entered into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase (the "Pony Lease") with a group of individual land owners in the state of Montana to acquire rights to 17 patented and 67 unpatented mining claims known as the Pony Exploration project (“the Pony Project”). The Company has not made the $500,000 lease payment due in February, 2012. On May 17, 2012, the Company received a written notice of default on the Pony Lease Agreement. With this notice, SRI ceased all efforts to acquire the rights to the Pony Project. All pending obligations between SRI and the Lessors of the Pony Project were terminated on that date.


A&P Project: In February, 2011 SRI entered into a into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase with a group of individual land owners in the state of Montana to acquire two patented mining claims known as the Atlantic and Pacific Mine ("the A&P Lease") located in the Pony Mining District in Montana.

Billali Gold Mine


On April 20, 2012, SRI entered into a definitive Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) for the acquisition of the Billali Gold and Silver Mine (the "Billali Mine") from the Billali Gold Mine, LLC ("Seller"), and an advanced stage epithermal silver-gold quartz vein deposit in the Steeple Rock Mining District of New Mexico.  The Purchase Agreement provided for payments to be made over a period of two years with transfer of ownership being completed when SRI has satisfied its financial obligations under the Purchase Agreement. The purchase price for the Billali consists of the issuance of two million shares (2,000,000) of common stock of SRC; an initial payment of $100,000; an additional payment of $500,000 within 45 days of the Purchase Agreement being signed; and SRI delivering six hundred (600) American Eagle One Ounce Gold Coins on the twelfth, eighteenth and twenty-fourth month anniversary of the Purchase Agreement signing, to be delivered to the Seller. Upon satisfaction of these terms, the Seller will complete the transfer of full right and title of ownership of the Billali Mine to SRI. In addition, Seller will be entitled to receive a five percent (5%) Net Smelter Return on any and all future mining activity at the Billali Mine following the transfer of ownership to SRI. The initial deposit of $100,000 and the issuance of 2,000,000 shares of common stock were completed on April 20, 2012.


On June 28, 2012, the Company and Little Gem Life Sciences Capital Management LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Little Gem”), entered into a definitive Agreement (the "Agreement”) for the transfer of all rights, title and interests existing under the existing Purchase Agreement, dated April 20, 2012 (the “Purchase Agreement”), entered into between Billali Mine LLC as seller and Steele Resources Inc. as purchaser. Under the terms of the Agreement, Little Gem assumed all obligations of SRI under the Purchase Agreement including agreeing to pay to Billali Gold Mine LLC, the seller under the Purchase Agreement, the second installment of $500,000 which was paid on July 3, 2012; and, Little Gem agreed to provide additional capital, in such amounts and upon such terms as Little Gem may in its sole discretion determine, for the development of the Billali Mine. SRC will retain a twenty percent (20%) economic interest in the Billali Mine. The aforementioned 20% economic interest in the Billali Mine will vest in SRC as a joint venture “qualified carried interest” in the net operating profits, if any, of Little Gem’s ownership and development of the Billali Mine with distributions to occur over time in a manner, and with such reserves, as Little Gem in its sole discretion may determine suitable, appropriate and fair according to circumstances then prevailing. SRC’s economic interest will be “burdened” whereby SRC will be assessed it’s pro rata share of mining development costs and expenses over time.


Copper Canyon Exploration Project


On June 21, 2011 SRI entered into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase (the "Copper Lease") with from the Salmon Canyon Copper Company near Salmon, ID to acquire rights to 10 unpatented mining claims known as the Salmon Canyon Exploration project (“the Copper Canyon Project”), which is a historic copper/cobalt mine located in the Mineral Hill Mining District near Salmon, Idaho. On June 6, 2012, SRI and the Salmon Canyon Copper Company mutually agreed to terminate the Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase the Copper Canyon Project. With the termination, all right, title and interest of SRI was terminated and SRI was removed from all obligations set forth in the Agreement.






15






NOTE 4 - DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENT LIABILITIES AND CONVERTIBLE NOTES


The Company reviews the terms of the conversion features on notes payable and records a discount on the note in an amount equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion feature, not to exceed the face amount of the note, if the embedded conversion feature is not accounted for as a liability. The initial amount of the note discount is recorded in additional paid-in capital on the date of issuance and is amortized to interest expense over the initial term of the note using the interest method. Upon conversion, the entire unamortized discount is recognized as interest expense due to the beneficial nature of the conversion feature.


In January 2012, the Company issued a convertible note for $53,000 to one entity. The note bears interest at 8% per annum and is due November 1, 2012. The conversion price is 50% of the average of the lowest three closing bid prices in the 10 trading days ending one day before notice of conversion is given. The sale was made to one entity in a private, negotiated transaction without any public solicitation.


In January 2012, the Company issued a promissory note to a related party and a relative to a related party for a total of $63,000. The note bears simple interest at an annual rate of 20% per annum and is due July 27, 2012. In conjunction with the Note, 50,000 shares of common stock were issued to the lender. These shares were valued at $5,500 and recorded as a note discount. The lender has the option, at maturity, to convert the note and accrued interest into common at a price of $0.10 per share.


In January 2012, the Company issued a convertible note for $54,000 to one individual. The note bears interest at 8% per annum and is due October 29, 2012. The conversion price is 50% of the average of the lowest three closing bid prices in the 10 trading days ending one day before notice of conversion is given. The sale was made to an individual in a private, negotiated transaction without any public solicitation. On August 9, 2012 the holder of the note converted $9,000 of the note into 2,903,226 shares of the Company's common stock.


As of September 30, 2012, interest payable on these notes totaled $33,727.


These notes were evaluated using ASC 815-40 and it was determined that the embedded conversion should be accounted for as derivative instrument liabilities. Accordingly, they are to be marked to market each reporting period, with the corresponding non-cash gain or loss reflected in the Company’s current period statement of operations.



NOTE 5 - NOTES PAYABLE


In March, 2012, the Company issued a note payable for $50,000 to one of the individuals from which we have the lease purchase agreement for as the A&P Lease, covering the balance of the 2012 annual lease payment due. The note bears an interest rate of 12% and was due April 16, 2012.

Legal Matters


SRC was named in an amended complaint filed in District Court, Clark County Nevada, by Phyllis Wynn, individually and as the trustee for the Phyllis Wynn Family Trust. The Complaint appears to name approximately 81 defendants including Steele Resources Corporation. The Amended Complaint was filed September 23, 2009. It alleges 17 causes of actions including breach of contract and fraud against various other defendants and fraudulent conveyance to SRC and its former President and CEO Marlon Steele. The substance of the Complaint involves a real estate transaction not involving SRC. We do not believe the Plaintiff will prevail as to her claims regarding Steele Resources Corporation and have answered with affirmative defenses including but not limited to the following: (1) the injuries and damages complained of did not occur as the result of any action on the part of SRC but as the sole, direct and proximate result of actions by Plaintiff and third parties not otherwise related to SRC. The amount of loss cannot be reasonably estimated. A former officer of SRC has agreed to indemnify the Company from any eventual costs or loss from this lawsuit.

Contractual Matters


On February 4, 2011, SRI entered into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase (the "Pony Lease") with a group of individual land owners in the state of Montana to acquire rights to 17 patented and 67 unpatented mining claims known as the Pony Exploration project (“the Pony Project”). On May 17, 2012, the Company received a written notice of default on the Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase and the Mineral Lease agreement-Lease Payment Extension for the Pony Lease. With this notice, SRI ceased all efforts to acquire the rights to the Pony Project. All future obligations between SRI and the Lessors of the Pony Project were terminated on that date.


In February, 2011 SRI entered into a into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase with a group of individual land owners in the state of Montana to acquire two patented mining claims known as the Atlantic and Pacific Mine ("the A&P Lease") located in the Pony Mining District in Montana. The A&P Lease provides for a five year lease period with an initial payment of $200,000 and an annual commitment of $100,000 for the next five years. The Lessors will also have a 2% NSR on the property during the lease term. After the lease period expires and all lease payments have been paid, full right and title of ownership of the A&P property shall be transferred to SRI. In May, 2011, the Company issued a note payable for $80,000 to one of the individual land owners covering the balance of the initial lease payment due. The note bears an interest rate of 12% as was due May 31, 2011. The Company paid $34,000 towards interest and principle in December, 2011 and paid the balance of the note and interest in March, 2012. The Company issued a note payable to the Lessor in March, 2012, for $50,000 covering the balance of the lease payment that was due for 2012; the note bears an interest rate of 12% and was due April 16, 2012. On June 24, 2012, the Company notified the Lessors that SRI was terminating its agreement for the Mineral Lease with Option to Purchase Agreement. SRI exercised its rights under the terms of the A&P Lease to terminate the agreement at any time. With the termination, all right, title and interest of SRI was terminated and SRI was removed from all future obligations set forth in the Agreement.


On June 21, 2011 SRI entered into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase (the "Copper Lease") with from the Salmon Canyon Copper Company near Salmon, ID to acquire rights to 10 unpatented mining claims known as the Salmon Canyon Exploration project (“the Copper Canyon Project”), which is a historic copper/cobalt mine.

Pursuant to the Termination Agreement SRC acknowledges its obligation to repay $540,000 paid to date by INCT to SRC under the terms of the JV Agreement. The Termination Agreement also allows SRC the option to assume the $540,000 owed to INCT note holders on terms negotiated between SRC and the note holders. The Termination Agreement does not specify a time period in which the $540,000 must be repaid but does require that SRC caries this obligation as a liability on its balance sheet until repaid.  





18






On April 20, 2012, Seller and Steele Resources, Inc. ("SRI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SRC, entered into a definitive Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) for the acquisition of the Billali Mine. The Purchase Agreement provides for payments to be made over a period of two years with transfer of ownership being completed when SRI has satisfied its financial obligations under the Purchase Agreement. The purchase price for the Billali consists of the issuance of two million shares (2,000,000) of common stock of SRC; an initial payment of $100,000; within 45 days of the Purchase Agreement being signed, SRI will make an additional payment of $500,000; and SRI will deliver six hundred (600) American Eagle One Ounce Gold Coins on the twelfth, eighteenth and twenty-fourth month anniversary of the Purchase Agreement signing, to be delivered to the Seller. Upon satisfaction of these terms, the Seller will complete the transfer of full right and title of ownership of the Billali Mine to SRI. In addition, Seller will be entitled to receive a five percent (5%) Net Smelter Return on any and all future mining activity at the Billali Mine following the transfer of ownership to SRI.

SRC will retain a twenty percent (20%) economic interest in the Billali Gold and Silver Mine. The aforementioned 20% economic interest in the Billali Gold and Silver Mine will vest in SRC as a joint venture “qualified carried interest” in the net operating profits, if any, of Little Gem’s ownership and development of the Billali Gold and Silver Mine with distributions to occur over time in a manner, and with such reserves, as Little Gem in its sole discretion may determine suitable, appropriate and fair according to circumstances then prevailing. SRC’s economic interest will be “burdened” whereby SRC will be assessed it’s pro rata share of mining development costs and expenses over time.

ITEM 2 - MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION


Caution About Forward-Looking Statements


THIS FORM 10-Q INCLUDES “FORWARD-LOOKING” STATEMENTS ABOUT FUTURE FINANCIAL RESULTS, FUTURE BUSINESS CHANGES AND OTHER EVENTS THAT HAVE NOT YET OCCURRED.  FOR EXAMPLE, STATEMENTS LIKE THE COMPANY “EXPECTS,” “ANTICIPATES” OR “BELIEVES” ARE FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS.  INVESTORS SHOULD BE AWARE THAT ACTUAL RESULTS MAY DIFFER MATERIALLY FROM THE COMPANY’S EXPRESSED EXPECTATIONS BECAUSE OF RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES ABOUT THE FUTURE.  THE COMPANY DOES NOT UNDERTAKE TO UPDATE THE INFORMATION IN THIS FORM 10-Q IF ANY FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENT LATER TURNS OUT TO BE INACCURATE.  DETAILS ABOUT RISKS AFFECTING VARIOUS ASPECTS OF THE COMPANY’S BUSINESS ARE DISCUSSED THROUGHOUT THIS FORM 10-Q AND SHOULD BE CONSIDERED CAREFULLY.


General


Steele Resources, Inc. was formed on May 27, 2010. On June 17, 2010 we entered into and consummated a Plan and Agreement of Reorganization between Steele Resources Corporation and Steele Resources, Inc. ("SRI") and certain stockholders of SRI (the “Reorganization”). As a result of the Reorganization, the Company changed its name to Steele Resources Corporation ("SRC") and SRI became a wholly-owned subsidiary of SRC and the acquired business operations of SRI became SRC’s primary business activity.   


Basis of Presentation and Going Concern


The financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. Should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern, it may be unable to realize the carrying value of its assets and to meet its liabilities as they become due.


The Company has incurred a net loss of $132,851 for the three months ended September 30, 2012, a net loss of $1,675,421 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, and a total accumulated deficit of $5,069,428.


During the quarter ended September 30, 2012 the Company had no recurring revenue-generating operations. For the Company to continue as a going concern it will continue to be dependent on fund raising for project development and payment of general and administration expenses until production at its properties ramp up to sustainable production and revenue-generating operations are achieved. The Company has no commitment from any party to provide additional working capital and there is no assurance that such funding will be available if needed, or if available, that its terms will be favorable or acceptable to the Company.


The Company’s consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustment relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue in existence.




23






Derivative Financial Instruments


In connection with the issuance of debt or equity instruments, we may issue options or warrants to purchase our common stock. In certain circumstances, these options or warrants may be classified as derivative liabilities, rather than as equity. Additionally, the debt or equity instruments may contain embedded derivative instruments, such as conversion options, which in certain circumstances, may be required to be bifurcated from the associated host instrument and accounted for separately as a derivative instrument liability.


The identification of, and accounting for, derivative instruments is complex. Our derivative instrument liabilities are revalued at the end of each reporting period, with changes in the fair value of the derivative liability recorded as charges or credits to income, in the period in which the changes occur. For warrants that are accounted for as derivative instrument liability, we determined the fair value of these warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. That model requires assumptions related to the remaining term of the instruments and risk-free rates of return, our current common stock price and expected dividend yield, and the expected volatility of our common stock price over the life of the warrants. The identification of, and accounting for, derivative instruments and the assumptions used to value them can significantly affect our consolidated financial statements.


Results of Operation


Our current financial reporting commences as of May 27, 2010, which is the inception date of SRC’s wholly-owned subsidiary, SRI which initiated SRC's current mineral exploration business as a result of the Reorganization. SRC has been in existence for a relatively short period of time and has conducted only limited operations to date.    


The following discussion and analysis provides information that we believe is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operation and financial condition for the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the three and nine month periods ended September 30, 2011.


Results of Operations for the three months ending September 30, 2012 compared to the three months ending September 30, 2011  


Revenue


During the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, neither SRC nor its subsidiary SRI had any revenue from operations.


Operating Expenses


Total Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $29,915 and $512,202, respectively, a decrease of $482,287 or 94%. The decrease in operating expenses is attributed primarily to reduced administrative costs related to office closure, personnel reductions and lower professional fees paid during the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to the same quarter in 2011.




24






Exploration and Mine Startup costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $1,822 and $149,518, respectively, a decrease of $147,696 or 99%. The decreased costs realized in the three months ended September 30, 2012 are related to the reduction in exploration activity and termination of maintenance payments on 5 of the Company’s exploration properties required under the respective purchase/lease agreements in effect in 2011 but later terminated during late 2011 and 2012. SRC is classified as an Exploration Stage Company and all costs associated with mine operations and costs are expensed as incurred. General and Administrative costs for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $20,228 and $315,149, respectively, a decrease of $294,921 or 94%. During the three months ended September 30, 2012, the corporate offices in Cameron Park were closed and two employees and one Vice President were laid off; and the Chief Executive Officer resigned. Professional fees during the three months ending September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $7,865 and $47,535 respectively, a decrease of $39,670 or 83%. The reduction is a result of lower legal fees and professional fees related to financing transactions and reduced SEC reporting costs in the third quarter of 2012.


Net Loss


We incurred a net operating loss $132,851 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to an operating loss of $607,556 for the three months ending September 30, 2011, a decrease of $474,705 or 78%. The decrease in operating loss is the result of substantially lower operating and exploration costs realized in the three months ended September 30, 2012 as the Company sought to reduce its operating overhead, coupled with a lack of revenues to offset these expenses.


Results of Operations for the nine months ending September 30, 2012 compared to the nine months ending September 30, 2011  


Revenue


During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, neither SRC nor its subsidiary SRI had any revenue from operations.


Operating Expenses


Total Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $1,287,616 and $1,607,620, respectively, a decrease of $320,004 or 20%. The decrease in operating expenses is attributed primarily to the initial payments made under the purchase/lease agreements relating to five exploration properties paid during 2011, which were terminated in late 2011 and 2012 and small decreases in general and administrative costs and professional fees during the first nine months of 2012.


Exploration and Mine Startup costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $417,092 and $666,445, respectively, a decrease of $249,353 or 37%. The only costs related to exploration and mine startup costs during 2012 were the mineral lease expenses for the A&P Mine (which was terminated) and the initial purchase payments for the Billali Mine. SRC is classified as an Exploration Stage Company and all costs associated with mine operations and costs are expensed as incurred.




25






General and Administrative costs for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $711,386 and $741,759, respectively, a decrease of $30,373 or 4%. The decrease in General and Administrative costs relate to the cost of restricted shares issued to Directors in February, 2012; increased travel and consulting expenses associated with several financing transactions; and the increase in rent expense relating to the write-off of prepaid rent and tenant improvements resulting from the termination of the lease for the Company's planned new offices offset by the office closure, personnel reductions and lower professional fees occurring during 2012. Professional Fees for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 were $159,138 and $199,416, respectively, which consist primarily of ongoing legal and accounting expenses relating to SEC filings by SRC and preparation of reports filed with the SEC. Professional fees were somewhat higher during 2011 relating to the Company’s registration statement filed in 2011.


Net Loss


We incurred a net loss of $1,675,421 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a net loss of $1,886,009 for the nine months ending September 30, 2011, a decrease of $210,588 or 11%. The increase in net loss is the result of the expense recognition of the initial payments made under the Billali Gold Mine purchase agreement; expenses associated with the issuance of stock to Directors in the first quarter of 2012; and an increase in interest expenses primarily due to the Company securing higher interest rate financing, coupled with a lack of revenues to offset these expenses.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


To continue with the deployment of our business strategies, we will require significant additional working capital. We also will require additional working capital for employment of necessary corporate personnel, and related general and administrative expenses. At September 30, 2012, our cash balance was $14.  During the third quarter of 2012 we raised investment capital of $23,150 through the issuance of notes payable. We have limited cash on hand and we will be required to raise capital to fund our operations. Our ability to meet our current financial liabilities and commitments is primarily dependent upon the continued issuance of equity to new stockholders or loans or additional investments by existing stockholders and management or outside third parties. Management believes that our Company's current cash and cash equivalents will not be sufficient to meet our working capital requirements for the next twelve month period. We have had negative cash flow from operating activities as we are in the exploration stage and have not yet begun to generate sustained revenues.  We plan to raise the capital required to satisfy our immediate short-term needs and additional capital required to meet our estimated funding requirements for the next twelve months primarily through the private placement of our equity securities, by way of loans, and such other means as the Company may determine.


While we expect exploration and development of our property to commence during the next twelve months we do not expect revenues from this work to cover our operations. Consequently, we are dependent on the proceeds from other outside sources of capital to sustain our operations and implement our business plan until operating income is sufficient to cover our operating expenses. If we are unable to raise sufficient capital we will be required to delay or forego some portion of our business plan, which would have a material adverse effect on our anticipated results from operations and financial condition.  There is no assurance that we will be able to obtain necessary amounts of capital or that our estimates of our capital requirements will prove to be accurate. We may find it necessary to raise additional outside financing which may not be available. Even if we are able to secure outside financing, it may be available only in limited amounts and on less favorable terms.  Furthermore, such financing would likely take the form of bank loans, private placements of debt or equity securities or some combination of these. The issuance of additional equity securities would dilute the stock ownership of current investors while incurring loans, lines of credit or debt by SRC would increase its cash flow requirements and possible loss of valuable assets if such obligations were not repaid in accordance with their terms.

Plan of Operation


SRC is an exploration and mining company which focuses on identifying and developing advanced stage precious metal exploration projects which show potential to achieve full production. The overall business strategy is to identify, develop and operate mineral exploration properties and to provide mine development and operations services to mining properties located initially in the Western United States. The initial business strategy is to service the niche market between speculative exploration and large scale production. This niche market lays between, at one end, relatively small companies which have conducted preliminary mineral exploration on their properties and, at the other end, companies which conduct major mining operations which could generally be defined as properties having multimillion ounce gold mineral reserves. Within this niche market, SRC believes there are a large number of projects in the United States that have excellent potential but do not meet the size requirements for development by the major operators in the mining industry.


SRC’s business plan is to evaluate properties which have considerable amounts of exploration already completed and potential resources identified yet are not of sufficient size and scope for development by the major mining companies. Based on management’s extensive experience in evaluating geological exploration data and development feasibility, SRC will seek to identify those exploration properties which offer the best potential for producing significant gold and silver reserves and offers favorable conditions for the efficient development of the property to reach a production stage.


Once suitable projects are identified, SRC will conduct exploration drilling, prepare feasibility studies, create mine modeling, and perform on-site construction and advance stage project engineering with the goal of establishing, if warranted, a producing mine project. Exploration services would also include securing necessary permits, environmental compliance and remediation plans.


SRC will provide its mine development services in one of two ways. The first way is for SRC to acquire part or all of the mineral rights to a designated property and perform the services listed above. SRC would fund the property development itself and would own all or a substantial portion of the gold production, if any, which might be realized from that particular property, with a royalty paid to the property owner or the mineral rights assignor. This approach would typically include certain work requirements and expenditure requirements in order to maintain the exploration/mineral rights.


The second approach will be to contract with the property owner or mineral rights holder to provide the services listed above on a contract fee basis which would include a percentage royalty paid to SRC on any gold production which is actually achieved. This approach would have SRC acting in the nature of a general contractor.  SRC would prepare the same type of comprehensive mining development plan as described above and assemble the necessary service providers to carry out the plan. To date, SRC has not contracted to provide services to other mineral rights holders choosing instead to develop its own currently leased properties.


Suitable projects will have the following characteristics:


·

properties located near existing mineral zones initially focusing in the USA;

·

properties having a considerable amount of exploration completed; and

·

properties not of sufficient size for the major mining companies to advance themselves.

Exploration Projects


A&P Project: In February, 2011 SRI entered into a into a Mineral Lease Agreement with Option to Purchase with a group of individual land owners in the state of Montana to acquire two patented mining claims known as the Atlantic and Pacific Mine ("the A&P Lease") located in the Pony Mining District in Montana. The A&P Lease provided for a five year lease period with an initial payment of $200,000 and an annual commitment of $100,000 for the next five years. The Lessors would also have a 2% NSR on the property during the lease term. After the lease period expires and all lease payments have been paid, full right and title of ownership of the A&P property would be transferred to SRI. To retain mineral rights to the property, the yearly maintenance fees must be paid as well as the appropriate lease payments to the owners of the claims as outlined in the definitive agreement.


SRI completed the reclamation phase of approximately 6,000 tons of stockpiled material at the A&P site that had previously been identified as a hazardous mining waste site. SRI removed the stockpiled materials and sold the mineral ore grade to a third party processing facility for gross revenues of roughly $531,000 in the fourth quarter of 2011.


On July 24, 2012, the Company notified the Lessors that SRI was terminating its agreement for the Mineral Lease with Option to Purchase Agreement executed on February 22, 2011. SRI exercised its rights under the terms of the A&P Lease to terminate the agreement at any time. With the termination, all right, title and interest of SRI in the A&P Project was terminated and SRI was removed from all future obligations set forth in the A&P Lease. The Company has a $50,000 note payable with the Lessors, issued in March, 2012 with an interest rate of 12%. The note was due in April, 2012.


Billali Gold Mine


On April 20, 2012, Steele Resources, Inc. ("SRI"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of SRC, and the Billali Gold Mine, LLC ("Seller") entered into a definitive Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) for the acquisition of the Billali Mine and Silver Mine (the "Billali Mine"), an advanced stage epithermal silver-gold quartz vein deposit in the Steeple Rock Mining District of New Mexico. This property consists of approximately 11.6 acres including one patented claim which the Company believes has potential for near term production of silver and gold ore. The Purchase Agreement provides for payments to be made over a period of two years with transfer of ownership being completed when SRI has satisfied its financial obligations under the Purchase Agreement. The purchase price for the Billali consists of the issuance of two million shares (2,000,000) of common stock of SRC; an initial payment of $100,000 upon signing and, an additional payment of $500,000 within 45 days of the Purchase Agreement being signed; and SRI will deliver a total of 1,800 American Eagle One Ounce Gold Coins in three tranches of 600 coins each on the twelfth, eighteenth and twenty-fourth month anniversary of the Purchase Agreement signing. Upon satisfaction of these terms, the Seller will complete the transfer of full right and title of ownership of the Billali Mine to SRI. In addition, Seller will be entitled to receive a five percent (5%) Net Smelter Return on any and all future mining activity at the Billali Mine following the transfer of ownership to SRI. During the two year payment period, SRI will have full rights to develop and manage the property. The Company paid the initial payment of $100,000 and issued the 2,000,000 shares of common stock to the Seller in April, 2012.


The Billali Mine is physically adjacent to the Summit Mine, owned and operated by the Santa Fe Gold Corporation. The Billali Mine is along strike and adjacent to this producing operation.  It was once a part of the original Summit Mine land package evaluated by Biron Bay Resources and the drilling and geology used for the current reserve and resource studies is from the same drill program. The Summit Mine has proved the favorable findings of the original drill program and demonstrated that a viable ore body exists.



28






According to the December, 2011, 43-101 report for the property, exploration drilling was conducted on the Billali claim and adjacent Summit Mine property by Nova Gold and Biron Bay Resources from 1990 to 1991.  Over 200 diamond core holes were drilled with at least 28 holes on the Billali claim.  Nine holes intersected high grade with six intersecting 3 to 15 foot intervals of gold and silver grading between 1.17 and 23.86 opt Ag and from .10 to .52 opt Au. MPH Consulting, a mining consulting Canadian firm, estimated a historical resource of at least 219,000 tons at 12.8 opt silver and .244 opt gold. This calculation included intercepts from the Norman King structure, however does not include high grade intercepts from the “New Zone” that holes B-91-15 and 16 intersected.  


On June 28, 2012, SRI and Little Gem Life Sciences Capital Management LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (“Little Gem”) of which Jeffrey Benison (an affiliate of SRC) is the Managing Member, entered into a definitive Agreement (the “Little Gem Agreement”) for the transfer of all rights, title and interests existing under the Purchase Agreement entered into between Billali Mine LLC as seller and Steele Resources Inc. as purchaser. Under the terms of the Little Gem Agreement, Little Gem assumed all obligations of SRI under the Purchase Agreement including agreeing to pay to Billali Gold Mine LLC, the seller under the Purchase Agreement, the second installment of $500,000 (which Little Gem paid on July 3, 2012); and, Little Gem agreed to provide additional capital, in such amounts and upon such terms as Little Gem may in its sole discretion determine, for the development of the Billali Mine. SRC will retain a twenty percent (20%) economic interest in the Billali Mine. The aforementioned 20% economic interest in the Billali Mine will vest in SRC as a joint venture “qualified carried interest” in the net operating profits, if any, of Little Gem’s ownership and development of the Billali Mine with distributions to occur over time in a manner, and with such reserves, as Little Gem in its sole discretion may determine suitable, appropriate and fair according to circumstances then prevailing. SRC’s economic interest will be “burdened” whereby SRC will be assessed it’s pro rata share of mining development costs and expenses over time as well as its share of the Gold Coins due Billali Mine, LLC pursuant to the Purchase Agreement. SRC will not be charged for administrative expenses of Little Gem incurred in connection with its non-mining operations.


Pursuant to the Little Gem Agreement, in July, 2012 Little Gem entered into a mine development agreement with White Pine Mining LLC to act as the mining contractor to develop the Billali Mine.


Factors Affecting Future Operating Results


We continue to deploy our plan to place the Company on an improved financial footing. In addition to the capital raisings already achieved and the securities placements in 2012, an important element of the plan includes continuing to raise funding as may be required to provide for general business operations. Unless and until we are able to secure required financing on acceptable terms, we will not be in a position to execute our business plan going forward.


Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we did not engage in any off-balance sheet arrangements defined in Item 303(a) (4) of the SEC’s Regulation S-K.

ITEM 4 - CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


Disclosure Controls and Procedures


We have adopted and maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15 (e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods required under the SEC’s rules and forms and that the information is gathered and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive Officer) and Chief Financial Officer (Principal Financial Officer), as appropriate, to allow for timely decisions regarding required disclosure.  


At the end of the period covered by this report, an evaluation was carried out under the supervision of, and with the participation of, the Company’s management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a - 15(e) and Rule 15d - 15(e) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended). Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were adequately designed and effective in ensuring that information required to be disclosed by the Company in its reports that it files or submits to the SEC under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time period specified in applicable rules and forms.


Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.


There was no change in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION


ITEM 1A - RISK FACTORS


SRC laid off its two employees during the second Quarter of 2012, and its Vice President, and its Chief Executive Officer resigned. The Board of Directors has assumed the role of operating the Company until a suitable replacement can be found.


Due to a lack of operating funds, SRC was forced to lay off its two employees and it's Vice President on June 7, 2012 and its CEO resigned on June 9, 2012. In addition SRC’s CFO was reduced to a part-time basis until October 29, 2012 when the CFO resigned his position. Consequently there are no remaining operational officers or employees to run SRC resulting in the Board of Directors assuming the role of operating SRC. The lack of a management team could result in SRC failing to make timely decisions and adversely affect the efficient day-to-day operations of SRC. While Peter Kristensen, a current Director, has been appointed Interim President on October 30, 2012 and Syver Norderhaug has been appointed Interim CFO, this is deemed to be a temporary solution until suitable operational personnel can be identified and hired. SRC may not be able to move forward on its business and acquisition plans unless and until a senior management team is put into place.


SRC is a relatively new company with a limited operating history which makes the evaluation of its future business prospects difficult.


Prior to June 17, 2010 SRC was a shell company with no designated business or operations. As a result of the Reorganization SRC has only recently changed its business to focus on the natural resource sector. The Company has been an exploration stage company for only two years. Consequently, it has limited operating history and an unproven business strategy. Our primary activities to date have been the design of our business plan and identifying and acquiring potential advanced stage gold exploration projects which fit the Company's project profile. As such we have not been able to achieve positive cash flows and our lack of operating history makes evaluation of our future business and prospects difficult. The Company has generated only sporadic revenues from mining operations to date. The Company’s success is dependent upon the successful identification and future development of suitable mineral exploration projects. Any future success that we might achieve will depend upon many factors, including factors beyond our controlwhich cannot be predicted at this time. These factors may include but are not limited to: changes in or increased levels of competition; unfavorable weather conditions; the availability of materials and equipment; the cost and time of bringing exploration stage projects into production; the amount and accuracy of gold reserves identified; and the market price of gold and other metals. These conditions may have a material adverse effect upon the Company’s business operating results and financial condition.


SRC expects its operating expenses to increase in the future with no assurance that revenues will be sufficient to cover those expenses which could delay or prevent SRC from achieving profitability.


If SRC’s business grows and expands, it will spend substantial capital and other resources on exploring and potentially developing its exploration projects, establishing strategic relationships and operating infrastructure. SRC expects its cost of revenues, property exploration, general and administrative expenses, to continue to increase.  However, revenues are not expected in the near future to offset these expenses. Consequently if outside capital is not secured, there may be a material adverse effect on our business, cash flow and financial condition.




31






SRC will need to raise funds through debt or equity financings in the future, which would dilute the ownership of our existing stockholders and possibly subordinate certain of their rights to the rights of new investors or creditors.


We expect to raise additional funds in debt or equity financings if they are available to us on terms we believe reasonable to provide for working capital, carry out exploration programs or to make acquisitions.  Any sales of additional equity or convertible debt securities would result in dilution of the equity interests of our existing stockholders, which could be substantial. Additionally, if we issue shares of preferred stock or convertible debt to raise funds, the holders of those securities might be entitled to various preferential rights over the holders of our common stock, including repayment of their investment, and possibly additional amounts, before any payments could be made to holders of our common stock in connection with an acquisition of the Company.  Such additional debt, if authorized, would create rights and preferences that would be senior to, or otherwise adversely affect, the rights and the value of our common stock and would have to be repaid from future cash flow.


If SRC fails to raise additional capital to fund its business growth and project exploration, its business could be adversely affected or fail.


The Company anticipates having to raise significant amounts of capital to meet its anticipated needs for working capital and other cash requirements for the near term to repay existing debt and acquire and explore mining properties. The Company will attempt to raise such capital through the sale of common stock or debt instruments or securing commercial lines of credit. However, the Company has not been successful in raising or borrowing sufficient additional capital to pay its current debts and operating expenses and it has no arrangements for future financing and there can be no assurance that additional financing will be available to it. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, our ability to fund SRI’s exploration projects, take advantage of potential acquisition opportunities, possibly develop or enhance its properties in the future or respond to competitive pressures would be significantly limited.  Such limitation could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business and financial condition.


Gold exploration is highly speculative in nature, involves substantial expenditures and is frequently non-productive.


Success in gold or other mineral exploration is dependent upon a number of factors including, but not limited to, quality of management, quality and availability of geological data and the expertise to interpret it, availability of trained miners and equipment and availability of exploration capital. The exploration process can be long and costly. Due to these and other factors, the probability of our identifying individual prospects having commercially significant reserves cannot be predicted. It is likely that many of the projects considered will not contain any commercially viable reserves. Consequently, substantial funds may be spent on project evaluation which may identify only a few, if any, projects having commercial development potential. In addition, if commercially viable reserves are identified, significant amounts of capital will be required to mine and process such reserves.





32






We have not yet identified all properties that we intend to explore.


The Company currently has a 20% interest in one property, located New Mexico that is covered under a joint venture operating agreement. Exploration and development has only just commenced on the property, therefore we are unable to determine the quantity of gold, if any, that may be recoverable. We will continue to seek and identify additional suitable potential mineral resources, which is a subjective process depending in part on the quality of available data and the assumptions used and judgments made in interpreting such data. There is significant uncertainty in any resource estimate such that the actual deposits encountered or reserves validated and the economic viability of mining the deposits may differ materially from our expectations.


We have lost the mineral rights to properties due to our failure to meet payment requirements or development or production schedules.


We acquired rights to our mineral properties from leaseholds or purchase option agreements that required the payment of option payments, rent, minimum exploration expenditures or other installment fees or specified expenditures. We failed to make these payments on all but the Billali Gold Mine when they were due and, as a result, during the second and third quarters of 2012, SRI was forced to relinquish its leasehold interests and mineral rights in three properties and reduce its interest in a fourth mining property due to its inability to meet required lease payments.


Some contracts with respect to mineral rights we may acquire may require development or production schedules. If we are unable to meet any or all of the development or production schedules, we could lose all or a portion of our interests in such properties. Moreover, we may be required in certain instances to pay for government permitting or posting reclamation bonds in order to maintain or utilize our mineral rights in such properties. Because our ability to make some of these payments is likely to depend on our ability to generate internal cash flow or obtain external financing, we may not have the funds necessary to meet these development/production schedules by the required dates.   


We may have to compete with other companies for favorable projects to explore.


Due to the current high market value for gold and silver many companies are attempting to explore properties which show potential for significant gold and silver reserves. Consequently, we will face competition from other companies for those projects showing the most favorable exploration results. While we intend to focus on smaller projects which do not meet the size/volume requirements of the established, large mining companies, we nonetheless expect competition from other companies, many of which are larger and better funded than SRC.


Consequently, if we are unable to secure projects meeting our desired project profile, we are more likely to end up with projects having a lower success potential and ultimately having a lower return on the project’s investment.





33






Mineral exploration and mining are highly regulated industries.


Mining is subject to extensive regulation by state and federal regulatory authorities. State and federal statutes regulate environmental quality, safety, exploration procedures, reclamation, employees’ health and safety, use of explosives, air quality standards, pollution of stream and fresh water sources, noxious odors, noise, dust, and other environmental protection controls as well as the rights of adjoining property owners. We will strive to verify that projects being considered are currently operating in substantial compliance with all known safety and environmental standards and regulations applicable to each State in which properties are located. However, there can be no assurance that our compliance review could be challenged or that future changes in federal or state laws, regulations or interpretations thereof will not have a material adverse effect on our ability to establish and sustain mining operations.


Gold mining has a number of risks.   


The business of gold and silver mining is subject to certain types of risks, including environmental hazards, industrial accidents, and theft. While we will attempt to secure insurance consistent with industry practice, it is not possible to insure against all risks associated with the mining business, or prudent to assume that insurance will continue to be available at a reasonable cost. We may not obtain certain types of liability insurance on our projects because such coverage is not considered by management to be cost effective. If any project lacks insurance coverage, any losses would have to be absorbed by the Company or other participants who could have a significant adverse impact on the Company’s operations and revenues.


We will incur increased costs and may have difficulty attracting and retaining qualified directors and executive officers as a result of being a public company.


SRC is a public “reporting company” with the SEC. As a public reporting company, we will incur significant legal, accounting, reporting and other expenses not generally applicable to a private company.  We also will incur costs associated with corporate governance requirements, including requirements under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 as well as other rules implemented by the SEC. We expect these rules and regulations to increase our legal and financial compliance costs and to make some activities more time-consuming and costly.  We also expect these rules and regulations to make it more difficult and more expensive for us to obtain director and officer liability insurance, and we may be required to accept reduced policy limits and coverage.  As a result, we may experience difficulty attracting and retaining qualified individuals to serve on our board of directors or as executive officers. We cannot predict or estimate the amount of these continuing costs we will incur as a result of being a public company.


A decline in the price of gold and other resources will adversely affect our chances of success.


The price of gold has experienced an increase in value over the past several years, generally reflecting among other things relatively low interest rates in the United States; worldwide instability due to terrorism; and a continuing global economic slump. Gold prices closed at $1,731 per ounce on November 9, 2012 as reported by Monex. We believe that the economic conditions causing these high market valuations will continue for the foreseeable future. However the price of gold and silver can be very volatile and is subject to numerous factors beyond our control including industrial and jewelry demand, inflation, the strength of the US dollar, interest rates and the amount of global economic instability. Any significant drop in the price of gold or other natural resources could make some exploration projects no longer viable and will have a materially adverse effect on the results of our operations unless we are able to offset such a price drop by substantially increased production.



34






The Auditor’s Report for fiscal year 2011 states there is substantial uncertainty about the ability of SRC or SRI to continue its operations as a going concern.


In their audit report dated April 6, 2012 included in the Company's 2011 financial statements, the auditors have expressed an opinion that substantial doubt exists as to whether we can continue as an ongoing business.


Management may be unable to implement the business strategy.


The Company’s business strategy is to service the niche market between speculative exploration and large scale production, the latter of which is dominated by industry majors. SRI plans to identify and explore smaller exploration projects that have already been established as project worthy. Unless and until we secure a management team and sufficient capital we will not be able to acquire and provide our services to such “project worthy” properties. In addition, even if we find and ultimately develop such project worthy properties, the time and cost of development may exceed our expectations or, when developed, the amount of gold or other precious metals recovered may fall significantly short of our expectations thus providing a lower return on investment or a loss to the Company.
