Nature of business and organization

Nature of business and organization

Gunpowder Gold Corp. (the “Company”), formerly named Spartan Business Services Corp., was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 19, 2008. The Company is an Exploration Stage Company as defined by Guide 7 of the Securities Exchange Commission’s Industry Guide and ASC Topic 915-10 “Development Stage Entities”. The Company has entered into an agreement to acquire a mineral property located in the La Paz County, Arizona, and has not yet determined whether this property contains reserves that are economically recoverable. The recoverability of property expenditures will be dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, confirmation of the Company’s interest in the underlying property, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing to satisfy the expenditure requirements under the property agreement and upon future profitable production or proceeds from the sale thereof.

 

On December 13, 2011 Mr. Neil Pestell resigned as President, Treasurer, Secretary and Director of the Company.

 

On December 13, 2011, Mr. Michael Nott was appointed President, Treasurer, Secretary and Director of the Company. Mr. Nott is paid $2,000 per month for his services to the Company.

Use of estimates

Use of estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include interest bearing and non-interest bearing bank deposits, money market accounts, and short-term instruments with a liquidation provision of three month or less.

Revenue recognition

Revenue recognition

The Company has no revenues to date from its operations. Once revenues are generated, management will establish a revenue recognition policy.

Advertising costs

Advertising costs

Advertising costs are generally expensed as incurred and are included in selling and marketing expenses in the accompanying statement of operations. As of August 31, 2012 and 2011, there were $5,900 and $19,505 advertising costs incurred respectively

Environmental expenditures

Environmental expenditures

The operations of the Company have been, and may in the future, be affected from time to time, in varying degrees, by changes in environmental regulations, including those for future reclamation and site restoration costs. Both the likelihood of new regulations and their overall effect upon the Company vary greatly and are not predictable. The Company’s policy is to meet or, if possible, surpass standards set by relevant legislation, by application of technically proven and economically feasible measures.

Concentrations of credit risk

Concentrations of credit risk

The Company’s financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk primarily consist of its cash and accounts payable. The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with financial institutions of high credit worthiness. At times, its cash and cash equivalents with a particular financial institution may exceed any applicable government insurance limits.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

The Company reviews and evaluates long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. The assets are subject to impairment consideration under FASB ASC 360-10-35-17, if events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amount might not be recoverable. When the Company determines that an impairment analysis should be done, the analysis will be performed using the rules of FASB ASC 930-360-35, Asset Impairment, and 360-10 through 15-5, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.

 

Mineral Rights and Exploration Costs

Mineral Rights and Exploration Costs

Costs of acquisition and option costs of mineral rights are capitalized upon acquisition. Mine development costs incurred to develop new ore deposits, to expand the capacity of mines, or to develop mine areas substantially in advance of current production are also capitalized once proven and probable reserves exist and the property is a commercially mineable property. Costs incurred to maintain current production or to maintain assets on a standby basis are charged to operations. If the Company does not continue with exploration after the completion of the feasibility study, the mineral rights will be expensed at that time. Costs of abandoned projects are charged to mining costs including related property and equipment costs. To determine if these costs are in excess of their recoverable amount periodic evaluation of carrying value of capitalized costs and any related property and equipment costs are based upon expected future cash flows and/or estimated salvage value in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 360-10-35-15, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.

 

Various factors could impact our ability to achieve forecasted production schedules. Additionally, commodity prices, capital expenditure requirements and reclamation costs could differ from the assumptions the Company may use in cash flow models from exploration stage mineral interests. This, however, involves further risks in addition to those factors applicable to mineral interests where proven and proven and probable reserves have been identified, due to the lower level of confidence that the identified mineralized material can ultimately be mined economically.

Risks and uncertainties

Risks and uncertainties

The Company operates in the resource exploration industry that is subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including financial, operational, technological, and other risks associated with operating a resource exploration business, including the potential risk of business failure.

Basic and diluted loss per share

Basic and diluted loss per share

The Company computes net loss per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share”, which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all potentially dilutive common shares outstanding during the period.

 

In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all potentially dilutive shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Comprehensive income

Comprehensive income

The Company accounts for comprehensive income (loss) in accordance with ASC Topic 220 "Reporting Comprehensive income" which requires comprehensive income (loss) and its components to be reported when a company has items of comprehensive income (loss). Comprehensive income (loss) includes net income (loss) plus other comprehensive income (loss). There are no differences or reconciling items between net income and comprehensive income for the years ended August 31, 2012 and 2011.

Income taxes

Income taxes

The Company accounts for its income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, which requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and tax credit carry-forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial statement purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. Significant components of the Company’s deferred tax liabilities and assets as of August 31, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

 

Deferred tax assets:   2012    2011 
Net operating loss carryforwards  $711,706   $489,375 
Income tax rate   34%   34%
    241,980    166,387 
Less valuation allowance   (241,980)   (166,387)
   $   $ 

Through August 31, 2012, a valuation allowance has been recorded to offset the deferred tax assets, including those related to the net operating losses carryforwards. At August 31, 2012, the Company had $711,706 of federal and state net operating losses carryforwards. The net operating loss carryforwards, if not utilized will begin to expire in 2028.

 

Reconciliations of the U.S. federal statutory rate to the actual tax rate for the years ended August 31, 2012 and 2011 is as follows 

 

    2012    2011 
U.S. federal statutory income tax rate   34.0%   34.0%
State tax - net of federal benefit   0.0%   0.0%
    34.0%   34.0%
Increase in valuation allowance   (34.0%)   (34.0%)
   Effective tax rate   0.0%   0.0%
