PART I
 
ITEM 1.  DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
General Overview
 
Magnus is a mineral exploration company that specializes in identifying, acquiring and developing precious and base metal properties. The Company has been active in Uganda since 2007 where it has a 100% interest in two mineral properties as at July 31, 2012: Kidera and Nyanga. In August and September 2011, the Company ceased to have an interest in the Kigumba/Masindi  and Buhweju/Rubindi projects. The Company has been advised by the Uganda Ministry of Mines that EL0585 and EL0586 were issued in error and the Company is not entitled to these licenses. The Company is not pursuing rectification of this matter and considers itself not to have an interest in this project.The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada, USA on April 4, 2001 and has a July 31st fiscal year end.

The price of the Company’s common stock was quoted for trading on the over-the-counter bulletin board (“OTCBB”) since March 25, 2003.  On November 14, 2007, the Company received notice of the suspension of the quotation of its shares on the OTCBB for one year for late filing of annual and/or quarterly reports, and on December 6, 2007 the Company’s shares were removed from quotation on the OTCBB.  The Company’s shares are now quoted for trading on the Pink Sheets over-the-counter quotation system under the symbol “MGNU”.
 
Property Agreements
 
Property Agreements - Africa
 
In Africa, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, African Mineral Fields Limited, has a 100% interest in two mineral projects in Uganda (comprising 3 mineral exploration licenses): Kidera and Nyanga.
 
Mubende Property
 
On September 1, 2006, AMF entered into an agreement (the “Mubende Agreement”) with Flemish Investments Limited (“Flemish”) under which AMF purchased a 100% right, title and interest in and to the mineral exploration licenses respecting 780 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Mubende Property”).  The purchase price paid by AMF for the Mubende Property was $25,000 and the issuance of 250,000 common shares of AMF (since exchanged for Magnus shares).  In addition, under the Mubende Agreement AMF was required to issue additional AMF common shares, to a maximum of 300,000 additional shares, to Flemish for each economically mineable ounce of gold on the Mubende Property that is proven to be a measured and indicated resource.  To date, there is not a measured or indicated resource on the Mubende Property, and accordingly no additional shares have been issued to Flemish.
 
The Mubende exploration licenses EL0116, EL0122 and EL0123 covering 780 sq. km expired in August 2009.  The Company reapplied for EL0122 and EL0123 in the Mubende area. The Company was granted new licenses over the same areas as EL0122 and EL0123, with new numbers EL0585 and EL0586 respectively. The Company has been advised by the Uganda Ministry of Mines that EL0585 and EL0586 were issued in error and the Company is not entitled to these licences. The Company is not pursuing rectification of this matter and no longer has an interest in this project.
 
Kigumba /Masindi Property
 
On May 12, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 363 square kilometers of land in western Uganda (the “Kigumba/Masindi Property”) was granted to the Company. A 20km long uranium anomaly on the license was picked up by processing the data from the airborne geophysical survey was flown over 80% of Uganda. Since acquiring this licence, three additional licences totalling 1402.55 square kilometers were also acquired.
 
Work completed at the Kigumba/Masindi Property includes 84 soil samples collected along three sample lines totaling 9,400 metres and hand-held scintillometer readings taken along five lines totaling 11,545 metres. These surveys were conducted across the main uranium radiometric anomaly.
 
 
 
 
The results of this ground survey indicated that there is a distinct enriched zone, with an element association of U, Th, K, Ce and La (the last two elements being Rare Earth Elements), which is closely associated with the airborne anomaly. The partial leach semi-quantitative analytical method shows that Uranium reaches a maximum value of 18 ppm above a background of some 1.6 ppm and Thorium has a maximum value of 103 ppm. The anomalous U and Th samples were re-analyzed by means of pressed pellet XRF for more quantitative results. The soil values show Uranium values reaching 35 ppm and Thorium values reaching 141 ppm.
 
One of the Company’s licences in this project expired in May, 2011 and the remainder expired in August and September 2011. The Company no longer has an interest in the Kigumba/Masindi project.
 
Buhweju/Rubindi Project
 
On May 12, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 291 square kilometers of land in southwestern Uganda (the “Buhweju/Rubindi Property”) was granted to the Company. Since acquiring this licence, an additional licence covering 429 square kilometers was also acquired.
 
Work completed at the Buhweju/Rubindi property includes 113 stream sediment samples and 3 rock grab samples from rivers and streams which drain off the Buhweju plateau to the west. The results show no obvious areas of anomalous gold for follow up exploration. The preliminary assay reports indicated a value of >10 ppm in a sample on Rubindi EL, but this high value was not replicated on check and re-assay of this sample. Another sample on Kanoni EL returned 2.36 ppm gold in the first assay but again this was not replicated in the check assay, which returned <0.001ppm. There could be an indication of nugget coarse gold. Uranium (U) values are in general higher on the Kanoni EL, situated over basement rocks. These values are up to 74ppm.
 
One of the Company’s licences in this project expired in May, 2011 and the remaining license expired in September 2011. The Company no longer has an interest in the Buhweju/Rubindi property.
 
Kidera Project
 
On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 485 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Kidera Property”) was granted to the Company.   This license was renewed effective June 29, 2011 for two years but with reduced area of 240 square kilometers. The Company is evaluating this project for tantalum, rare earth metals and diamonds, based on interpretation of airborne radiometric and magnetic anomalies.
 
In 2010, a ground survey across a large radiometric anomaly and single point magnetic anomalies was completed. A total of 156 soil samples were collected along seven lines totaling 31,200 metres, 55 heavy mineral concentrate samples along four lines totaling 5,000 metres and 68 rock samples collected over outcropping granite.
 
This first phase of surface geochemical exploration has shown that there is a low potential for rare metals – REE, Tantalum and Niobium. The radiometric anomaly prominently displayed in the airborne coverage is underlain by silica rich per-aluminous granitic rocks. These rocks are not ideally suited for rare metal mineralisation, and the results indicate background levels with no clear evidence for anomalous concentrations. Results from heavy mineral concentrates show that six out of sixteen samples reported possible kimberlite indicator minerals.
 
Nyanga Project
 
On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 23.28 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Nyanga Property”) was granted to the Company. This license was renewed effective June 29, 2011 for two years but with reduced area of 11.52 square kilometers. On June 16, 2010, a further mineral exploration license covering 79.60 square kilometers was granted to the west and north of the original Nyanga license.The Company intends to evaluate the tantalum potential at this project.
 
 
 
 
An exploration report on the Nyanga quarry was obtained by the Company which included historical information and work conducted in 2000. Results from this period indicate selected high grades of tantalum and niobium in channel trench samples from historical artisanal mine workings.
 
Property Agreements – China
 
Yunnan Long Teng Mining Ltd. – Huidong Property
 
Through a joint venture agreement, the Company previously had interest, or contingent interest, in the Huidong Property, comprising 83.29 square kilometers in Sichuan Province, China. On September 29, 2004 the joint venture agreement entered into by the Company on July 6, 2004 was approved by the Chinese government.  With the approval, a new joint venture company, Yunnan Long Teng Mining Ltd., (“Long Teng”) was formed.  The Company owned 90% of the issued shares of Long Teng until May 28, 2008. On May 28, 2008, the Company entered an agreement to sell 100% of Long Teng (including the remaining 10% the Company was then negotiating to acquire) for proceeds of RMB 21,000,000 (approximately $3,072,000). The Company subsequently entered into a number of amending agreements (including penalties for late payment) relating to the sale of Long Teng. The penalties for late payment added a further RMB 1,260,000 in payments bringing the total sale price of Long Teng to RMB 22,260,000 ($3,256,730).  As at July 31, 2012, Magnus had received $3,137,829 in proceeds from the sale of Long Teng, not including proceeds collected and not remitted by an intermediary the Company engaged to effect exchange of the currency to US Dollars and transmission to the Company’s office in Canada, and was still owed $118,901 by the intermediary.
 
Corporate Structure
 
The Company has one wholly owned subsidiary, African Mineral Fields Inc. (incorporated under the laws of the British Virgin Islands), which in turn has incorporated two subsidiaries, African Mineral Fields Limited and AB Mining Limited (both incorporated under the laws of Uganda).
 
The following chart describes the Company’s corporate structure and material subsidiaries:

 

 
 
Principal Products

At this time we do not have any product for sale as we are in the beginning stages of our exploration and development of our mineral properties to which we have indirectly acquired the exploration licenses.
 
Employees
 
As at July 31, 2012, the Company had no employees (over and above its directors, officers and consultants) employed in Vancouver, British Columbia.
 
The Company’s operating subsidiary in Uganda, African Mineral Fields Limited, employed three persons,  one accountant and two housekeepers, until December 31, 2011. Since January 1, 2012 the former accountant employee consults to the Company on an as-needed basis.
 
The Company uses consultants with specific skills to assist with various aspects of its exploration, project evaluation, due diligence, acquisition initiatives, corporate governance, property management, and with accounting and legal matters.
 
Other Property Interests and Mining Claims
 
The Company currently only has interests in the above-noted properties in Uganda.
 
Government Regulation
 
Mining operations and exploration activities are subject to various national, state, provincial and local laws and regulations in the United States, Canada, and Uganda as well as other jurisdictions, which govern prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection of the environment, mine safety, hazardous substances and other matters.
 
The Company believes that it is and will continue to be in compliance in all material respects with applicable statutes and the regulations passed in the United States, Canada and Uganda.  There are no current orders or directions relating to the Company with respect to the foregoing laws and regulations.
 
Environmental Regulation
 
The Company's exploration projects are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations governing protection of the environment in North America and Uganda. These laws often change and, as a general matter, are becoming more restrictive. The Company's policy is to conduct business in a way that safeguards public health and the environment. The Company believes that its operations are conducted in material compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
 
Changes to current local, state or federal laws and regulations in the jurisdictions where the Company operates or may operate in the future could require additional capital expenditures and increased operating costs. Although the Company is unable to predict what additional legislation, if any, might be proposed or enacted, additional regulatory requirements could impact the economics of its projects.
 
In the preceding year, there were no material environmental incidents or non-compliance with any applicable environmental regulations. The Company estimates that it will not incur material capital expenditures for environmental control facilities during the current fiscal year.
 
Competition
 
Magnus is a grassroots mineral exploration company.  The mineral exploration industry is competitive, with many companies competing for the limited number of precious and base metals acquisition and exploration opportunities that are economic under current or foreseeable metals prices, as well as for available investment funds.  With metal prices at their current levels, activity in the industry has increased dramatically, and competition is also high for the recruitment of qualified personnel and equipment.
 
 
 
 
The Company believes no single company has sufficient market power to affect the price or supply of gold or other minerals in the world market.
 
Transfer Agent
 
The Company’s stock transfer agent is Pacific Stock Transfer Company of 4045 South Spencer Street, Suite 403, Las Vegas, Nevada 89119.
 
Available Information
 
The Company’s website is www.magnusresources.com, where information about the Company may be reviewed and obtained.  In addition, the Company’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) may be accessed at the internet address of the SEC, which is http://www.sec.gov.  Also, the public may read and copy any materials that the Company files with at the SEC’s Public Reference Room at 100 F Street, N.E., Room 1580 Washington, D.C. 20549.  The public may obtain information on the operation of the Public Reference Room by calling the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330.
 
Subsequent Events
 
None.
 
ITEM 1A.  Risk Factors
 
The following risk factors should be considered in connection with an evaluation of the business of the Company:

THE COMPANY'S LIMITED OPERATING HISTORY MAKES IT DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO JUDGE ITS PROSPECTS.
 
The Company has a limited operating history upon which an evaluation of the Company, its current business and its prospects can be based. You should consider any purchase of the Company's shares in light of the risks, expenses and problems frequently encountered by all companies in the early stages of its corporate development.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES ARE UNCERTAIN.

For the year ended July 31, 2012, the Company had a loss from continuing operations of $300,911. At July 31, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $632,292. Magnus needs to raise additional capital by way of an offering of equity securities, an offering of debt securities, or by obtaining financing through a bank or other entity.
 
The Company has not established a limit as to the amount of debt it may incur nor has it adopted a ratio of its equity to debt allowance. If the Company needs to obtain additional financing, there is no assurance that financing will be available from any source, that it will be available on terms acceptable to us, or that any future offering of securities will be successful. If additional funds are raised through the issuance of equity securities, there may be a significant dilution in the value of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The Company could suffer adverse consequences if it is unable to obtain additional capital which would cast substantial doubt on its ability to continue its operations and growth.
 
 
 
 
WE HAVE A GOING CONCERN OPINION FROM OUR AUDITORS, INDICATING THE POSSIBILITY THAT WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TO OPERATE.

We anticipate generating losses for the next 12 months.  Therefore, we may be unable to continue operations in the future as a going concern.  No adjustment has been made in the accompanying financial statements to the amounts and classification of assets and liabilities which could result should we be unable to continue as a going concern.  If we cannot continue as a viable entity, our shareholders may lose some or all of their investment in the Company.
 
THERE CAN BE NO ASSURANCE THAT WE WILL BE CAPABLE OF RAISING THE ADDITIONAL FUNDING THAT WE NEED TO CARRY OUT OUR DEVELOPMENT AND EXPLORATION OBJECTIVES.
 
The further development and exploration of our mineral properties depends upon our ability to collect on monies owed to the Company or obtain financing through capital markets, or other means.  There is no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining financing as and when needed. Unfavorable market conditions may make it difficult or impossible for us to obtain debt financing or equity financing on acceptable terms or at all.  Failure to collect monies owed to the Company or to obtain additional financing on a timely basis may cause us to postpone our development plans, forfeit rights in some or all of our properties or reduce or terminate some or all of our operations.
 
WE DO NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE IN PLACING PROPERTIES INTO PRODUCTION.
 
We have no experience in placing mineral properties into production, and our ability to do so will be dependent upon using the services of appropriately experienced personnel or entering into agreements with other major resource companies that can provide such expertise.  There can be no assurance that we will have available to us the necessary expertise to take a mineral deposit into production.

THE VALUE AND TRANSFERABILITY OF THE COMPANY'S SHARES MAY BE ADVERSELY IMPACTED BY THE LIMITED TRADING MARKET FOR ITS SHARES AND THE PENNY STOCK RULES.

There is only a limited trading market for the Company’s shares. The Company’s common stock is quoted for trading on the Pink Sheets quotation market and “bid” and “asked” quotations regularly appear on the Pink Sheets quotation market under the symbol “MGNU”. There can be no assurance that the Company’s common stock will trade at prices at or above its present level, and an inactive or illiquid trading market may have an adverse impact on the market price. In addition, holders of the Company’s common stock may experience substantial difficulty in selling their securities as a result of the “penny stock rules”, which restrict the ability of brokers to sell certain securities of companies whose assets or revenues fall below the thresholds established by those rules.
 
OUR STOCK IS A PENNY STOCK.  TRADING OF OUR SHARES MAY BE RESTRICTED BY THE SEC’S PENNY STOCK REGULATIONS AND FINRA’S SALES PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS, WHICH MAY LIMIT A SHAREHOLDER’S ABILITY TO BUY AND SELL OUR SHARES.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission has defined “penny stock” under Rule 3a51-1 and as such our stock is penny stock.  Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, Rule 15g-9, which imposes additional sales practice requirements, including disclosure requirements, on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”.  The disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for stock that is subject to the penny stock rules.  The penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities.  We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in, and limit the marketability of, our common stock.
 
In addition, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority has adopted rules that require a broker/dealer, when recommending an investment to a customer, to have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer.  Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker/dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information.  Interpretations of these rules suggest that there is a high probability that speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for some customers.  The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority requirements make it more difficult for broker/dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock.
 
 

 
BECAUSE WE DO NOT INTEND TO PAY ANY CASH DIVIDENDS ON OUR SHARES OF COMMON STOCK, OUR STOCKHOLDERS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO RECEIVE A RETURN ON THEIR SHARES UNLESS THEY SELL THEM.

We intend to retain any future earnings to finance the development and expansion of our business. We do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. Unless we pay dividends, our stockholders will not be able to receive a return on their shares unless they sell them.
 
FUTURE SALES OF SHARES MAY ADVERSELY IMPACT THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY'S STOCK.

If required, the Company may seek to raise additional capital through the sale of common stock. Future sales of shares by the Company or its stockholders could cause the market price of its common stock to decline.
 
MINERAL EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES ARE SPECULATIVE IN NATURE.
 
Resource exploration and development is a speculative business, characterized by a number of significant risks including, among other things, unprofitable efforts resulting not only from the failure to discover mineral deposits but from finding mineral deposits which, though present, are insufficient in quantity and quality to return a profit from production. The marketability of minerals acquired or discovered by the Company may be affected by numerous factors which are beyond the control of the Company and which cannot be accurately predicted, such as market fluctuations, the proximity and capacity of milling facilities, mineral markets and processing equipment and such other factors as government regulations, including regulations relating to royalties, allowable production, importing and exporting of minerals and environmental protection, the combination of which factors may result in the Company not receiving an adequate return of investment capital.
 
Substantial expenditures are required to establish ore reserves through drilling, to develop metallurgical processes to extract the metal from the ore and, in the case of new properties, to develop the mining and processing facilities and infrastructure at any site chosen for mining. Although substantial benefits may be derived from the discovery of a major mineralized deposit, no assurance can be given that minerals will be discovered in sufficient quantities and grades to justify commercial operations or that funds required for development can be obtained on a timely basis. Estimates of reserves, mineral deposits and production costs can also be affected by such factors as environmental permitting regulations and requirements, weather, environmental factors, unforeseen technical difficulties, unusual or unexpected geological formations and work interruptions. In addition, the grade of ore ultimately mined may differ from that indicated by drilling results. Short term factors relating to reserves, such as the need for orderly development of ore bodies or the processing of new or different grades, may also have an adverse effect on mining operations and on the results of operations. Material changes in ore reserves, grades, stripping ratios or recovery rates may affect the economic viability of any project.

THE COMPANY WILL BE SUBJECT TO OPERATING HAZARDS AND RISKS WHICH MAY ADVERSELY AFFECT THE COMPANY'S FINANCIAL CONDITION.

Mineral exploration involves many risks, which even a combination of experience, knowledge and careful evaluation may not be able to overcome. The Company's operations will be subject to all the hazards and risks normally incidental to exploration, development and production of metals, such as unusual or unexpected formations, cave-ins or pollution, all of which could result in work stoppages, damage to property and possible environmental damage. The Company does not have general liability insurance covering its operations and does not presently intend to obtain liability insurance as to such hazards and liabilities. Payment of any liabilities as a result could have a materially adverse effect upon the Company's financial condition.
 
 

 
THE COMPANY'S ACTIVITIES WILL BE SUBJECT TO ENVIRONMENTAL AND OTHER INDUSTRY REGULATIONS WHICH COULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON THE FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE COMPANY.

The Company's activities are subject to environmental regulations promulgated by government agencies from time to time. Environmental legislation generally provides for restrictions and prohibitions on spills, releases or emissions of various substances produced in association with certain mining industry operations, such as seepage from tailing disposal areas, which would result in environmental pollution. A breach of such legislation may result in imposition of fines and penalties. In addition, certain types of operations require the submission and approval of environmental impact assessments. Environmental legislation is evolving in a manner which means stricter standards and enforcement, fines and penalties for non-compliance are more stringent. Environmental assessments of proposed projects carry a heightened degree of responsibility for companies and directors, officers and employees. The cost of compliance with changes in governmental regulations could have an adverse effect on the financial condition of the Company.
 
The operations of the Company including exploration and development activities and commencement of production on its properties, require permits from various federal, state, provincial and local governmental authorities and such operations are and will be governed by laws and regulations governing prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, toxic substances, land use, environmental protection, mine safety and other matters. Companies engaged in the development and operation of mines and related facilities generally experience increased costs and delays in production and other schedules as a result of the need to comply with applicable laws, regulations and permits.
 
Failure to comply with applicable laws, regulations, and permitting requirements may result in enforcement actions thereunder, including orders issued by regulatory or judicial authorities causing operations to cease or be curtailed, and may include corrective measures requiring capital expenditures, installation of additional equipment, or remedial actions. Parties engaged in mining operations may be required to compensate those suffering loss or damage by reason of the mining activities and may have civil or criminal fines or penalties imposed for violations of applicable laws or regulations and, in particular, environmental laws.

THE COMPANY’S PROPERTIES ARE LOCATED IN UGANDA, A DEVELOPING COUNTRY WHICH HAS HISTORICALLY EXPERIENCED PERIODS OF CIVIL UNREST AND POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC INSTABILITY.

All of the Company’s African properties are located in Uganda, a developing country which has historically experienced periods of civil unrest and political and economic instability.  Although the political and economic climate in Uganda is currently stable, any negative changes in governmental laws, regulations, economic conditions, or political attitudes in Uganda are beyond the control of the Company and may adversely affect its business.
 
The Company’s operations may be affected in varying degrees by government regulations, policies or directives with respect to restrictions on production or sales, price controls, export controls, repatriation of income, income taxes, carried interests for the state, expropriation of property and environmental legislation. Magnus may also be required to negotiate property agreements with the Ugandan government, which may impose conditions that will affect the viability of the project such as providing the government with free carried interests or providing subsidies for the development of the local infrastructure or other social assistance. There can be no assurance that Magnus will be successful in concluding such agreements on commercially acceptable terms or that these agreements will be successfully enforced in Uganda.
 
As a result of the limited but improving infrastructure present in Uganda, land titles systems are not developed to the extent found in many developed nations. Although Magnus believes that it has good title to its mineral properties in Uganda, there is little it can do to control this risk. Magnus holds rights to explore its mineral properties in Uganda, but no assurance can be given that the Ugandan government will not revoke or significantly alter the conditions of the applicable licenses and that such licenses will not be challenged or impugned by third parties. There is no certainty that such rights or additional rights applied for will be granted or renewed on terms satisfactory to Magnus. There can be no assurance that claims by third parties against the Company’s properties will not be asserted at a future date.
 
 

 
WE MAY BE UNABLE TO ENFORCE OUR LEGAL RIGHTS IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES.

In the event of a dispute arising at or in respect of our foreign operations, we may be subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of foreign courts or may not be successful in subjecting foreign persons to the jurisdiction of courts in the United States, Canada or other jurisdictions.  We may also be hindered or prevented from enforcing our rights with respect to a governmental entity or instrumentality because of the doctrine of sovereign immunity.

COMPETITION MAY HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE COMPANY'S ABILITY TO ACQUIRE ATTRACTIVE MINERAL PROPERTIES, WHICH MAY HAVE AN ADVERSE IMPACT ON THE COMPANY'S OPERATIONS.

Significant and increasing competition exists for the limited number of mineral acquisition opportunities available. As a result of this competition, some of which is with large established mining companies with substantial capabilities and greater financial and technical resources than the Company, the Company may be unable to acquire attractive mineral properties on terms it considers acceptable. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that any exploration program intended by the Company on properties it intends to acquire will yield any reserves or result in any commercial mining operation.

DOWNWARD FLUCTUATIONS IN METAL PRICES MAY SEVERELY REDUCE THE VALUE OF THE COMPANY.

The Company has no control over the fluctuations in the prices of the metals for which it is exploring.  A significant decline in such prices would severely reduce the value of the Company.

THE COMPANY CURRENTLY RELIES ON CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS AND THE LOSS OF ONE OF THESE CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS COULD HAVE AN ADVERSE EFFECT ON THE COMPANY.

The Company’s success depends to a certain degree upon certain key members of the management. These individuals are a significant factor in the Company's growth and success. The loss of the service of members of the management and certain key employees could have a material adverse effect on the Company. In particular, the success of the Company is highly dependent upon the efforts of the President, Treasurer, Secretary, CEO and director of the Company, Graham Taylor, the loss of whose services would have a material adverse effect on the success and development of the Company. 

THE COMPANY DOES NOT MAINTAIN KEY MAN INSURANCE TO COMPENSATE THE COMPANY FOR THE LOSS OF CERTAIN KEY INDIVIDUALS.

The Company does not anticipate having key man insurance in place in respect of any of its senior officers or personnel.

THE COMPANY’S PRESIDENT AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, GRAHAM TAYLOR, ALSO SERVES AS PRESIDENT, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND/OR DIRECTOR FOR SOME OTHER ACTIVE COMPANIES.

Mr. Taylor also serves as president, chief executive officer and/or director for Arcview Entertainment Inc. (a motion picture distribution company).  This list may also expand in the future.

Mr. Taylor currently devotes 90% of his time to Magnus and 10% to Arcview Entertainment.  As Mr. Taylor focuses part of his time on other companies, this may have a material adverse effect on the success and development of the Company. 

WE ARE AN EXPLORATION STAGE COMPANY, AND THERE IS NO ASSURANCE THAT A COMMERCIALLY VIABLE DEPOSIT OR "RESERVE" EXISTS ON ANY PROPERTIES FOR WHICH THE COMPANY HAS, OR MIGHT OBTAIN, AN INTEREST.

The Company is an exploration stage company and cannot give assurance that a commercially viable deposit, or “reserve,” exists on any properties for which the Company currently has (through a joint venture agreement) or may
 
 
 
 
have (through potential future joint venture agreements or acquisitions) an interest. Therefore, determination of the existence of a reserve depends on appropriate and sufficient exploration work and the evaluation of legal, economic, and environmental factors. If the Company fails to find a commercially viable deposit on any of its properties, its financial condition and results of operations will be materially adversely affected.

WE REQUIRE SUBSTANTIAL FUNDS MERELY TO DETERMINE WHETHER COMMERCIAL MINERAL DEPOSITS EXIST ON OUR PROPERTIES.

Any potential development and production of the Company’s exploration properties depends upon the results of exploration programs and/or feasibility studies and the recommendations of duly qualified engineers and geologists. Such programs require substantial additional funds. Any decision to further expand the Company’s operations on these exploration properties is anticipated to involve consideration and evaluation of several significant factors including, but not limited to:

 
Costs of bringing each property into production, including exploration work, preparation of production feasibility studies, and construction of production facilities;
     
 
Availability and costs of financing;
     
 
Ongoing costs of production;
     
 
Market prices for the minerals to be produced;
     
 
Environmental compliance regulations and restraints; and
     
 
Political climate and/or governmental regulation and control.

GENERAL MINING RISKS

Factors beyond the control of Magnus may affect the marketability of any substances discovered from any resource properties the Company may acquire. Metal prices, in particular gold and copper prices, have fluctuated widely in recent years. Government regulations relating to price, royalties, allowable production and importing and exporting of minerals can adversely affect the Company. There can be no certainty that the Company will be able to obtain all necessary licenses and permits that may be required to carry out exploration, development and operations on any projects it may acquire and environmental concerns about mining in general continue to be a significant challenge for all mining companies.

ITEM 2.  DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTIES.
 
Summary
 
The Company, through its indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries, African Mineral Fields Limited and AB Mining Ltd. (each of which are wholly-owned by the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, African Mineral Fields Inc. (“AMF”)), has a 100% interest in two mineral projects in Uganda (comprising 3 mineral exploration licenses): Kidera and Nyanga.
 
 
 
 
Properties in Uganda
 
Property Description and Location
 
The Kidera and Nyanga Properties comprising approximately 331.12 sq. km. are located in central, southern and southwestern Uganda in East Africa.  The properties are covered by valid exploration licenses, 3 in total.
 
Kidera Property
 
The Kidera Property is located some 120 km north of the capital Kampala in the Kamuli and Kayunga districts of central Uganda. The Property is approximately centred at Latitude 1° 20’N and Longitude 32° 53’E.  The property consists of one exploration license covering an area of 240 sq. km.
 
Nyanga Property
 
The Nyanga Property is located some 380 km southwest of the capital Kampala in the Ntungamo district of south-western Uganda. The Property is approximately centred at Latitude 0° 57’S and Longitude 30° 11’E.  The property consists of two exploration license covering an area of 91.12 sq. km.
 
Mubende Property
 
The Mubende Property is located some 100 km west-northwest of the capital Kampala in the Mubende and Kiboga administrative districts of south-central Uganda. The Property is approximately centred at Latitude 0° 34’N and Longitude 31° 46’E. The Mubende exploration licenses EL0116, EL0122 and EL0123 covering 780 sq. km expired in August 2009.  The Company reapplied for EL0122 and EL0123 in the Mubende area. The Company was granted new licenses over the same areas as EL0122 and EL0123, with new numbers EL0585 and EL0586 respectively. The Company has been advised by the Uganda Ministry of Mines that EL0585 and EL0586 were issued in error and the Company is not entitled to these licenses. The Company is not pursuing rectification of this matter and no longer has an interest in this project.
 
Regional Geology

The Archaean Ugandan Craton is part of the African Plate, a large area of continental crust consisting of the accretion of small cratons (e.g. Uganda, Tanzania) welded together by Proterozoic mobile belts.  Much of northern and central Uganda is underlain by Archaean basement gneisses.  The southwest part of the country, including the exploration licenses of Magnus, is largely underlain by Proterozoic sediments, minor volcanics and intrusive granites.  Major rift faulting commenced in the Tertiary and continued to the present.  Tertiary volcanism of mafic to intermediate composition and minor carbonatites also occurred.  This includes the formation of large shield volcanoes, the most prominent in Uganda being Mt. Elgon on the Kenyan border.  Great thicknesses of Tertiary to Recent sediments fill the fault valleys, especially along the Western, or Albertine, Rift in western Uganda.
 
Precambrian rocks underlie two-thirds of Uganda. Archaean rocks are exposed in the southeast where they are part of the extensive granite-greenstone terrane of the Tanzanian Craton. Three major Proterozoic belts underlie central and west Uganda: the Paleoproterozoic Buganda-Toro metasediments, the Mesoproterozoic Karagwe-Ankolean (Kibaran) Belt in the southwest of the country and Neoproterozoic Pan-African rocks. The Neoproterozoic includes the Bunyoro Series with tillites and argillites, and the undeformed shallow water sediments of the Bukoban Supergroup. Tertiary to Recent sediments have filled parts of the down-faulted Western Rift. Tertiary carbonatites and Cenozoic volcanics are related to rift activities and occur along the eastern and western borders of the country.
 
 
 
 
Mineralization
 
Kidera Property
 
The style of mineralization at the Kidera area is expected to be related to a large 7km by 5km circular radiometrics anomaly, which was identified from the airborne geophysical survey covering 80% of the country. This radiometrics anomaly has a similarity in size to the carbonatite complexes such as Tororo and Sukulu Hills, located in the southeastern part of Uganda. The large anomaly will be examined for vermiculite, phosphate and rare earth metals, commonly associated with carbonatite rocks.  In addition, a field of distinct magnetic bullseyes, will be tested for diamond potential, as they resemble kimberlite pipes.
 
Nyanga Property
 
The style of mineralization at the Nyanga area is tantalum which is associated with large pegmatite bodies that are hosted by metasedimentary rocks of Karagwe-Ankolean age. Mining operations at three locations at Nyanga occurred during the 1930 – 1960’s producing a total of 130,000t tantalum. These operations were suspended in 1960. The Nyanga deposit is hosted by a pegmatite body measuring 370m and with a width of approximately 54m.
 
Mubende Property
 
The style of gold mineralization at the Mubende area is interpreted by the Company as being associated with the roof zones of large batholiths such as the Singo Granite. Greisen alteration has been identified by reconnaissance exploration and an Intrusion Related Gold (“IRG”) system is being modeled, with gold mineralization in disseminated and quartz stockwork styles in the upper roof zones of granites, or in large scale fault zones along the flanks of the intrusions. Tungsten and gold occurrences have been identified on the Singo granites and in surrounding meta-sediments.
 
Exploration
 
Kidera Project

On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 485 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Kidera Property”) was granted to the Company. The Company is evaluating this project for tantalum, rare earth metals and diamonds, based on interpretation of airborne radiometric and magnetic anomalies. This license was renewed in the fiscal year but reduced to 240 sq km.
 
During the year a ground survey across a large radiometric anomaly and single point magnetic anomalies was completed. A total of 156 soil samples were collected along seven lines totaling 31,200 metres, 55 heavy mineral concentrate samples along four lines totaling 5,000 metres and 68 rock samples collected over outcropping granite.
 
This first phase of surface geochemical exploration has shown that there is a low potential for rare metals – REE, Tantalum and Niobium. The radiometric anomaly prominently displayed in the airborne coverage is underlain by silica rich per-aluminous granitic rocks. These rocks are not ideally suited for rare metal mineralisation, and the results indicate background levels with no clear evidence for anomalous concentrations. Results from heavy mineral concentrates show that six out of sixteen samples reported possible kimberlite indicator minerals.
 
Nyanga Project
 
On June 30, 2008, a mineral exploration license covering 23.28 square kilometers of land in central Uganda (the “Nyanga Property”) was granted to the Company.  On June 16, 2010, a further mineral exploration license covering 79.60 square kilometers was granted to the west and north of the original Nyanga license. During the 2011 year, the original Nyanga mineral license was renewed but was reduced to 11.52 sq km. The Company intends to evaluate the tantalum potential at this project.
 
 
 
 
An exploration report on the Nyanga quarry was obtained by the Company which included historical information and work conducted in 2000. Results from this period indicate selected high grades of tantalum and niobium in channel trench samples from historical artisanal mine workings.
 
Mubende Property
 
A regional alteration and structural interpretation over Mubende has been completed. This information together with the historical airborne geophysical data indicates that the eastern end of the Singo batholith could be prospective for granite related gold systems. A follow-up soil geochemical program was completed, which targeted the northern and southern boundaries of the granite batholith. In total 1,001 soil samples were collected along lines on elevated topography to avoid the wide swampy drainages in this region. The samples were sieved to -80 mesh fraction and analyzed for gold by means of aqua regia and AAS finish. Prior to these soil samples, a program of low level terra leach soil sampling was completed over the southwestern portions of the licence. A total of 554 terra leach samples were collected. The results of the soil sampling have not delineated any clear targets to follow up.
The regional geophysics also indicate anomalous uranium, potassium and thorium contents in radiometric surveys, related to the singo granite. No work has been completed to investigate the uranium potential.
 
Future Plans
 
On its core properties in Uganda, Magnus intends to undertake low cost exploration and add value by evaluating new targets generated by the high resolution geophysical survey that has been completed over 80% of the country. The Company is targeting strategic minerals, in particular uranium, lithium, tantalum, Rare Earths and vermiculite, while at the same time investigating kimberlite potential (for diamonds) and expanding the existing knowledge base for gold mineralization.
 
Over the course of fiscal year 2013, the Company intends to partner or sell some of its Ugandan exploration portfolio. The Company intends to determine which projects it can reasonably maintain where it can conduct cost-effective further exploration and which projects will require significant capital that would necessitate teaming up with joint venture partners or the sale of particular projects.

Holders

As of November 14, 2012, Magnus had at least 226 shareholders of record.
 
Dividends
 
The Company has never paid dividends. While any future dividends will be determined by the directors of the Company after consideration of the earnings, financial condition and other relevant factors, it is currently expected that available cash resources will be utilized in connection with the ongoing acquisition, exploration and development programs of the Company.
 
Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934
 
The Company’s shares are covered by Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouses). For transactions covered by this Section 15(g), the broker/dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchase and must have received the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction prior to the sale. Consequently, Section 15(g) may affect the ability of broker/dealers to sell the Company’s securities and also may affect your ability to sell your shares in the secondary market.
 
Section 15(g) also imposes additional sales practice requirements on broker/dealers who sell penny securities. These rules require a one page summary of certain essential items. The items include the risk of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and the secondary market; terms important to an understanding of the function of the penny stock market, such as "bid" and "offer" quotes, a dealers "spread" and broker/dealer compensation; the broker/dealer compensation, the broker/dealers duties to its customers, including the disclosures required by any other penny stock disclosure rules; the customer’s rights and remedies in causes of fraud in penny stock transactions; and, the NASD's toll free telephone number and the central number of the North American Administrators Association, for information on the disciplinary history of broker/dealers and their associated persons.

Notes:
(1) The Company’s Board of Directors adopted a stock option plan on January 9, 2004.  See below for details of this plan.
 
On January 9, 2004, the Board of Directors of the Company unanimously approved and adopted a stock option plan (the “Stock Option Plan”).  The purpose of the Stock Option Plan is to advance the interests of the Company and its shareholders by affording key personnel of the Company an opportunity for investment in the Company and the incentive advantages inherent in stock ownership in the Company. Pursuant to the provisions of the Stock Option Plan, stock options (the “Stock Options”) will be granted only to key personnel of the Company, generally defined as a person designated by the Board of Directors upon whose judgment, initiative and efforts the Company may rely including any director, officer, employee or consultant of the Company.
 
The Stock Option Plan is to be administered by the Board of Directors of the Company, which shall determine (i) the persons to be granted Stock Options under the Stock Option Plan; (ii) the number of shares subject to each option; (iii) the exercise price of each Stock Option; and (iv) whether the Stock Option shall be exercisable at any time during the option period of ten (10) years or whether the Stock Option shall be exercisable in installments or by vesting only. The Stock Option Plan provides authorization to the Board of Directors to grant Stock Options to purchase a total number of shares of common stock of the Company, not to exceed thirty percent (30%) of the total issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company as at the date of adoption by the Board of Directors of the Stock Option Plan. At the time the Stock Option is granted under the Stock Option Plan, the Board of Directors shall fix and determine the exercise price at which shares of common stock of the Company may be acquired; provided, however, that any such exercise price shall not be less than that permitted under the rules and policies of any stock exchange or over-the-counter market which is applicable to the Company.
 
In the event an optionee who is a director or officer of the Company ceases to serve in that position, any Stock Option held by such optionee generally may be exercisable within up to ninety (90) days after the effective date that his position ceases, and after such ninety-day period any unexercised Stock Option shall expire unless otherwise approved by the Company’s board of directors. In the event an optionee who is an employee or consultant of the
 
 
 
 
Company ceases to be employed by the Company, any Stock Option held by such optionee generally may be exercisable within up to ninety (90) days (or up to thirty (30) days where the optionee provided only investor relations services to the Company) after the effective date that his employment ceases, and after such ninety or thirty-day period any unexercised Stock Option shall expire unless otherwise approved by the Company’s board of directors.
 
No Stock Options granted under the Stock Option Plan will be transferable by the optionee, and each Stock Option will be exercisable during the lifetime of the optionee subject to the option period of ten (10) years or limitations described above. Any Stock Option held by an optionee at the time of his death may be exercised by his estate within one (1) year of his death or such longer period as the Board of Directors may determine.
 
The exercise price of a Stock Option granted pursuant to the Stock Option Plan shall be paid in cash or certified funds upon exercise of the option.
 
Incentive Stock Options
 
The Stock Option Plan further provides that, subject to the provisions of the Stock Option Plan, the Board of Directors may grant to any key personnel of the Company who is an employee eligible to receive options one or more incentive stock options to purchase the number of shares of common stock allotted by the Board of Directors (the “Incentive Stock Options”). The option price per share of common stock deliverable upon the exercise of an Incentive Stock Option shall be no less than fair market value of a share of common stock on the date of grant of the Incentive Stock Option. In accordance with the terms of the Stock Option Plan, “fair market value” of the Incentive Stock Option as of any date shall not be less than the closing price for the shares of common stock on the last trading day preceding the date of grant. The option term of each Incentive Stock Option shall be determined by the Board of Directors, which shall not commence sooner than from the date of grant and shall terminate no later than ten (10) years from the date of grant of the Incentive Stock Option, subject to possible early termination as described above.
 
As of the date of this Annual Report, the Company has 2,002,000 Stock Options and/or Incentive Stock Options outstanding. By action of the majority shareholders which occurred on May 4, 2004, the majority of the shareholders of the Company approved the Stock Option Plan and the Board of Directors is authorized, without further shareholder approval, to grant stock options from time to time to acquire up to an aggregate of 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock.
 
Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities
 
The Company did not issue any equity securities in the fiscal year 2012.
 
Purchase of Equity Securities by the Company and Affiliated Purchasers
 
During the fiscal year ended July 31, 2012, no purchases were made by or on behalf of the Company or any “affiliated purchaser” (as defined in §240.10b-18(a)(3) of Regulation S-K), of shares or other units of any class of the Company’s equity securities.

Magnus is currently in the development stage and is engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of precious and base metals.  To this end, the Company has obtained licenses and permits of its current property portfolio directly itself. The Company may enter into agreements that require it to contribute capital toward the exploration and development of various properties while requiring the joint venture partner to obtain or contribute mineral rights for desirable mineral properties, and obtain all required permits and licenses to commence exploration and mining activities. Similarly, the Company may also find joint venture partners for its currently wholly-owned projects.  
 
Outlook
 
At July 31, 2012, the price of gold was $1,614.10 per ounce (source: www.kitco.com) compared to $1,614.30 at July 31, 2011, representing a slight decrease. Gold prices have increased since July 31, 2010 but future prices are uncertain.
 
The Company does not currently generate operating cash flows. Subject to sustained mineral prices, discovery of mineable reserves and successful financing, management expects to generate revenues and cash flows in the future.
 
 
 
 
The Company had a working capital deficiency of $632,292 at July 31, 2012 (2011- $409,903).
 
The Company has 100% ownership of its Uganda projects and does not have any joint venture projects that require it to make expenditures to earn its interest.
 
While the Company has been successful in raising money by private placements of common shares and from loans in the past, there are no guarantees that the Company will be successful in the future. Management believes, however, that absent sufficient funding through a private placement or some other financing the Company will not generate sufficient revenue to cover any shortfall in the next year.
 
Results from Operations
 
Summary
 
The Company's consolidated net loss for the year ended July 31, 2012 was $300,911 or $0.01 per share compared to the previous year’s consolidated net income of $239,769 or $0.01 per share. Net loss from continuing operations for the year ended July 31, 2012 was $300,911 or $0.01 per share compared to the previous year’s net loss from continuing operations of $299,769 or $0.01 per share. The largest expense in 2012 was consulting fee primarily to the CEO. The second largest expense in 2012 was Interest on Loans from Related Parties & Shareholders.
 
Mineral production and revenue
 
As the Company is still an exploration stage company and in the exploration stage of development on the Company’s properties, it has not, as of yet, produced any revenues nor produced any minerals.
 
Exploration, property evaluation and holding costs
 
Exploration expenses totaled $11,631 in 2012, compared to $20,575 in 2011, including geological expenses and exploration licenses. The decrease in 2012 is due to the further reduction of exploration activity in Uganda by Magnus because of lack of available capital.
 
Corporate administration and investor relations
 
Corporate administrative and investor relations costs were $48,318 in the 2012 year compared to $42,625 in 2011.  The increase is due to higher telecommunication fee and transfer filing fee in year 2012.
 
Interest
 
Interest expense increased from $40,908 in 2011 to $82,769 in 2012 due to higher average outstanding balance of shareholders’ loans upon which imputed interest was based.
 
Stock-based compensation
 
Stock-based compensation expenses of $nil decreased from $15,025 in 2011. The decrease from 2011 is due to granted options becoming fully vested in 2011.
 
Financial Position, Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Cash used in Operations
 
Cash used in operations was $137,738 in the 2012 year compared to cash uses of $213,669 in 2011.   The decrease from 2011 is primarily due to payment of outstanding accounts payable and accrued liabilities in 2011 and the reduction in loss from operations as described above.
 
 
 
 
Financing Activities
 
The Company received cash from financing activities of $(142,281) in the 2012 year compared to using cash of $18,064 in 2011. The increase is due to increase in demand loan and loans from shareholders in 2012.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At July 31, 2012, the Company's total assets were $21,054 as compared to $14,183 in 2011. Long-term liabilities as of July 31, 2012 totaled $1,044,230 as compared to $966,880 in 2011.  The Company had a working capital deficiency of $632,292 at July 31, 2012 as compared to $409,903 at July 31, 2011. The increase is due to increase of shareholders’ loans.
 
Major uses of cash in the next fiscal year are expected to be related to proposed exploration activities in Uganda and corporate administration.
 
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.
 
The Company has experienced total losses during the exploration stage amounting to $20,908,198 as of July 31, 2012.   These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The ability of the Company to meet its commitments as they become payable, including the exploration and development of mineral properties and projects, is dependent on the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing or achieving a profitable level of operations.  There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in achieving these goals.
 
The Company is in the process of exploring and evaluating its mineral properties and projects and has not yet determined whether these properties contain economically recoverable ore reserves.  The underlying value of the mineral properties is entirely dependent on the existence of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete development and upon future profitable production or sufficient proceeds from the disposition thereof.
 
Over 2011 and  2012, the Company has decreased its costs significantly and intends to maintain costs at a minimum while allowing the Company to do the next phases of exploration on its projects. The Company will evaluate over the coming year whether it makes sense to divest or reduce some of its Uganda projects by either bringing in another partner(s), and/or selling in whole or in part its interests in such projects. In addition, the Company intends to raise some debt and equity financing in the coming year.
 
The financial statements do not give effect to adjustments to the amounts and classifications to assets and liabilities that would be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements include accounts of the Company and its direct and indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries.  All significant inter-company balances and transactions are eliminated. The statement of operations includes the results of operations for AMF since May 1, 2007, the date of acquisition, as well as the results of Western Mining and Long Teng up to the dates of disposition of those companies.
 
Mineral Properties and Exploration Expenses
 
Mineral property acquisition costs are capitalized and carried at cost, subject to write-down in case of impairment.  Exploration costs are charged to operations as incurred until such time that proven or probable ore reserves are discovered.  From that time forward, the Company will capitalize all development costs to the extent that future cash flow from reserves equals or exceeds the costs deferred.  The deferred costs will be amortized using the unit-of-production method when a property reaches commercial production. As of July 2012, the Company did not have proven or probable reserves.
 
 
 
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
The Company has no off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Transactions with Related Parties / Subsequent Events
 
In the year ended July 31, 2012, the Company incurred fees of $71,541 (2011 - $75,174) to the chief executive officer of the Company for consulting services rendered.  Total amount owed to the chief executive officer at July 31, 2012 for consulting services and expense reimbursement are $66,706 (July 31, 2011 - $ 5,254) and $2,600 (July 31, 2011-nil).
 
The Company incurred no fees to a former director of the Company for geological consulting services rendered in 2012.The total amount owed to this former director at July 31, 2012 in respect of fees is $44,134.
 
As at July 31, 2012, the Company had an accrued liability of $18,581 (2011 - $18,581) to a relative of a director in respect of consulting fees rendered in 2006.
 
As at July 31, 2012, the Company had an accrued liability of $13,800 (July 31, 2011- $13,800) to a related party.
 
As at July 31, 2012, Magnus had received $3,137,829 in proceeds from the sale of Long Teng, not including proceeds collected and not yet remitted by an intermediary the Company engaged to effect exchange of the currency to US Dollars and transmission to the Company’s office in Canada, and was still owed $118,901 by the intermediary.
 
ITEM 7A.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITIATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
Market risk represents the risk of loss that may impact our financial position, results of operations or cash flows due to adverse change in foreign currency and interest rates.
 
Exchange Rate
 
Our reporting currency is United States Dollars (“USD”).  In Uganda, the currency is the Ugandan shilling (“UGX”).  On July 31, 2012, the exchange rate was UGX 2,450 = US$1.00. In China, the currency is the Renminbi yuan (“RMB”). On July 31, 2012, the exchange rate was RMB 1 = US $0.1581.
 
Interest Rate
 
The Company has restructured a substantial portion of the shareholders’ loans into three-year loans with a fixed interest rate of 8%.
 
In Uganda, interest rates are generally stable.  Loans of the Company, if any, typically relate to trade payables and are short term.  However, the Company’s debt is likely to rise if it develops a physical plant in connection with any of its mineral properties, and if interest rates rose at the same time this could have a significant impact on our operating and financing activities.
 
We have not entered into derivative contracts either to hedge existing risks or for speculative purposes.
 
All principle and interest under long-term debt are due on July 31, 2014.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
 
The Board of Directors and Stockholders of
 
 
Magnus International Resources Inc.
 
 
 (An exploration stage company)
 
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Magnus International Resources Inc. (an exploration stage company) as of July 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011, the related consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity (deficit) for the years ended July 31, 2012 and 2011, and the related statements of operations and cash flows for the years ended July 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. We were not engaged to perform an audit of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
 
In our opinion, based on our audits, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of July 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended July 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011, and the changes in stockholders’ equity (deficit) for the years ended July 31, 2012, and July 31, 2011. 
 
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2, the Company has recurring losses from operations since inception, a cash deficiency, a working capital deficiency and has a shareholder’s deficit that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

1. BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
Organization and Description of Business
 
The Company was incorporated as Gravity Spin Holdings, Inc. in the State of Nevada on April 4, 2001. On June 30, 2001, the Company acquired all the outstanding stock of Gravity Spin, Inc. (“Gravity Spin”, formerly E-Fusion ATP Inc.), a company incorporated on March 3, 2000 in Canada, by issuing 10,000,000 shares of its common stock.  Gravity Spin engaged in advertising, sales promotion, graphic design, branding, new media, and design services principally in Canada.  The two companies were under common control.  Prior to the acquisition, the Company had only nominal assets and liabilities. The transaction was treated as a reverse acquisition for accounting purposes, which are a capital transaction and not a business combination. The Company sold its subsidiary, Gravity Spin, Inc., on June 2, 2003.
 
Subsequent to the sale of its operating subsidiary on June 2, 2003, the Company entered an exploration stage in pursuit of new business opportunities (Note 5).  As an exploration stage company, the Company presents its financial statements in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States that apply in establishing operating enterprises.  The Company discloses the deficit accumulated during the exploration stage and the cumulative statements of operations and cash flows from the inception of the exploration stage through July 31, 2012.
 
The Company formed a subsidiary called Gravity Spin Event Marketing, Inc., in May 2003.  The Company formed two new subsidiaries called Magnus International Resources Inc. (“Magnus BVI”) and Magnus Resources (HK) Limited (“Magnus HK”) in April 2004 and December 29, 2003, respectively. Gravity Spin Event Marketing Inc., Magnus BVI and Magnus HK have no transactions as of July 31,2012. Magnus HK has been deregistered pursuant to Section 291AA (9) of the Companies Ordinance of Hong Kong. Magnus HK was officially dissolved as of September 25, 2009.
 
Effective May 4, 2004 the Company changed its name to Magnus International Resources Inc.  The Company has an office in Vancouver, Canada.
 
On September 29, 2004 the joint venture agreement entered into by the Company on July 6, 2004 was approved by the Chinese government.  With the approval, a new joint venture company, Yunnan Long Teng Mining Ltd., (“Long Teng”) was formed.  The Company owned 90% of the issued shares of Long Teng until May 28, 2008. On May 28, 2008, the Company entered an agreement to sell 100% of Long Teng (including the remaining 10% the Company was then negotiating to acquire) for proceeds of RMB 21,000,000 (approximately $3,072,000). The Company subsequently entered into a number of amending agreements (including penalties for late payment) relating to the sale of Long Teng. As at July 31, 2012, Magnus had received $3,137,829 in proceeds from the sale of Long Teng, not including proceeds collected and retained by an intermediary the Company engaged to effect exchange of the currency to US Dollars and transmission to the Company’s office in Canada,  and was still owed $118,901 by the intermediary. See also Notes 3 and 5.
 
On November 25, 2005, Magnus acquired 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Golden River Resources Corp., a private British Columbia company (“Golden River”), which was owned by First Fortune Investments Inc. Golden River was participating in a co-operative joint venture in China until December, 2007. Under the joint venture, Golden River acquired a 90% interest in the sino-foreign joint venture company Yunnan Western Mining Ltd. (“Western Mining”) by making capital contributions on the schedule required by the joint venture agreement.

On November 15, 2007 the Company entered an amending agreement (replacing an agreement entered on May 12, 2007) to sell its 90% interest in Western Mining to the joint venture partner in consideration for the remaining 10% of Long Teng that the Company did not already own. On May 30, 2008 the Company entered a final amending agreement to finalize the terms of the transfer, as more fully described in Note 5. The registered ownership of Western Mining was transferred to the former joint venture partner in December 2007 in reliance on the amending agreement.
 
On May 1, 2007, the Company closed a share purchase agreement by which the Company acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares in the capital of African Mineral Fields Inc. (“AMF”), a company incorporated under the laws of the British Virgin Islands. The Company’s chief executive officer indirectly held a controlling interest in AMF, and was the chief executive and a director of AMF, prior to the acquisition. In exchange, the shareholders of AMF received six million shares of common stock of the Company and 200,000 Series “B” preferred shares.
 
Through the acquisition of AMF, the Company acquired a 100% interest in two gold projects, Lugazi and Mubende, and an exclusive option to acquire 100% interest in a further two gold properties, Mwerusandu and Mitoma (later reduced to a purchase of the licenses), in Uganda. See Note 5.
 
In the year ended July 31, 2008 AMF incorporated two subsidiary companies, African Mineral Fields Limited (“AMF Ltd.”) and AB Mining Ltd. (“ABM”), under the laws of Uganda for the purpose of holding legal interest in exploration licenses in Uganda.
 
In the year ended July 31, 2008, AMF acquired four more mineral exploration licenses and designated them as the Buhweju/Rubindi, Kigumba/Masindi, Kidera and Nyanga projects. Since acquiring these licenses, five additional licenses associated with these projects were acquired. During the year ended July 31, 2012, the Company’s licenses numbered EL0357 (Buhweju/Rubindi project) and EL0369 (Kigumba/Masindi project) have expired. The Company has been advised by the Uganda Ministry of Mines that EL0585 and EL0586 were issued in error and the Company is not entitled to these licenses. The Company is not pursuing rectification of this matter and considers itself not to have an interest in this project.
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements include accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Golden River,   Gravity Marketing, Magnus BVI, AMF and the two Ugandan subsidiaries.  All significant inter-company balances and transactions are eliminated.
 
The assets of AMF at the time of acquisition have been reflected in these financial statements at their historical cost to AMF, since the transaction was between related parties. The carrying values of AMF’s assets at time of the acquisition consisted of cash of $282 and prepaid expenses of $14,514. 
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
Cash equivalents comprise certain highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased.  As at July 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company had $4,543 and $nil cash equivalents.

Mineral Properties and Exploration Expenses
 
Mineral property acquisition costs are capitalized and carried at cost, subject to write-down in case of impairment.  Exploration costs are charged to operations as incurred until such time that proven or probable ore reserves are discovered.  From that time forward, the Company will capitalize all development costs to the extent that future cash flow from reserves equals or exceeds the costs deferred. The deferred costs will be amortized using the unit-of-production method when a property reaches commercial production. To July 31, 2012, all costs of the Company’s properties in China and Uganda have been classified as exploration costs as the licenses included rights to explore and not to mine. As at July 31, 2012, the Company did not have proven or probable reserves.
 
Asset Retirement Obligations
 
The Company has adopted Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) ASC 410, Asset Retirement and Environmental  Obligations which requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred.   ASC 410 requires a liability to be recorded for the present value of the estimated site restoration costs with corresponding increase to the carrying amount of the related long-lived asset.  The liability will be accreted and the asset will be depreciated over the life of the related assets.  Adjustments for changes resulting from the passage of time and changes to either the timing or amount of the original present value estimate underlying the obligation will be made. As at July 31, 2012 the company has no asset retirement obligations.
 
Advertising Expenses
 
Advertising expenses are expensed as incurred. There is no advertising expense incurred for fiscal year ended July 31, 2012 and 2011.
 
Foreign Currency
 
The parent company’s operation of the Company is located in Canada.  It maintains both U.S. Dollar and Canadian Dollar bank accounts. The functional currency is the Canadian Dollar. Transactions in foreign currencies other than the functional currency, if any, are remeasured into the functional currency at the rate in effect at the time of the transaction. Remeasurement gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations are included in income or loss from operations. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in the functional currency are translated into U.S. Dollars at the rate in effect at the balance sheet date.  Revenue and expenses denominated in the functional currency are translated at the average exchange rate.  Other comprehensive income includes the foreign exchange gains and losses that arise from translating from the functional currency into U.S. Dollars.
 
The operations of AMF are located in Uganda, and AMF maintains its accounting records in US dollars. The functional currency is the US dollar. Transactions in foreign currencies other than the functional currency, if any, are remeasured into the functional currency at the rate in effect at the time of the transaction. Remeasurement gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations are included in income or loss from operations.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of the Company’s consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect
 
 
 
 
MAGNUS INTERNATIONAL RESOURCES INC.
 (An Exploration Stage Company)
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements
July 31, 2012 and 2011
(Expressed in US Dollars)
 
 
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.  Management makes its best estimate of the ultimate outcome for these items based on historical trends and other information available when the financial statements are prepared. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Loss Per Share
 
Basic earnings (loss) per share of common stock is computed by dividing the net earnings (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted earnings (loss) per share is equal to the basic loss per share for the year ended July 31, 2012 and 2011 because common stock equivalents consisting of options outstanding at July 31, 2012 to acquire 2,002,000 (2011 - 2,002,000) shares of common stock. .
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The carrying value of cash and accounts payable and accrued liabilities at July 31, 2012 and 2011, reflected in these financial statements approximates their fair value due to the short-term maturity of the instruments. The carrying value of long term debt at July 31, 2012 reflected in these financial statements approximates its fair value due to the interest rate on the debt, which is equivalent to a fair market interest rate for such instruments.
 
Comprehensive Income
 
The Company has adopted ASC 220, Comprehensive Income.  Comprehensive income includes net income and all changes in equity during a period that arise from non-owner sources, such as foreign currency items and unrealized gains and losses on certain investments in equity securities.
 
Income taxes
 
The Company records deferred taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes.  ASC 740 requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, based upon the enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.  A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.
 
Concentrations
 
The Company uses  single supplier to supply (1) the exploration licenses, (2) the manpower, and (3) the majority of the technical expertise for the minerals exploration for the Company’s projects in Uganda.
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
The Company periodically analyzes its long-lived assets for potential impairment, assessing the appropriateness of lives and recoverability of unamortized balances through measurement of undiscounted operation cash flows in accordance with ASC 360, Property, Plant and Equipment.   If impairment is deemed to exist, the asset will be written down to its fair value.  Fair value is generally determined using a discounted cash flow analysis.

As at July 31, 2008, the Company wrote down all its long-lived assets in Canada and Uganda to $nil due to impairment analysis.
 
Finders’ fees
 
Finders’ fees paid to consultants for referring investors are capitalized and are offset against the proceeds of the offering if successful and are expensed and charged to operations if the offering is not successful.
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
The Company has implemented the provisions of ASC 718 Compensation-Stock Compensation. Compensation expense is recorded in accordance with the fair value recognition provisions of ASC 718 for options issued.
 
The Company has a stock-based compensation plan that is described more fully in Note 11.
 
New Accounting Pronouncements
 
There were various accounting standards and interpretations issued during 2012 and 2011, none of which are expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial position, operations or cash flows.
 
2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION – GOING CONCERN
 
These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going-concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.
 
The Company has experienced losses since the inception of the exploration stage amounting to $20,908,198 as of July 31, 2012.  As of July 31, 2012, the Company had $4,543 cash and cash equivalents and had a working capital deficiency of $632,292.Cash and cash equivalents are insufficient to sustain operations over the course of the next year. The Company has a shareholders’ deficit. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The ability of the Company to meet its commitments as they become payable, including the exploration and development of mineral properties and projects, is dependent on the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing.  There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in achieving these goals.  There is significant doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
 
The Company is in the process of exploring and evaluating its mineral properties and projects in Uganda and has not yet determined whether these properties contain economically recoverable ore reserves.  The underlying value of the mineral properties is entirely dependent on the existence of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete development and upon future profitable production or sufficient proceeds from the disposition thereof.

In 2012 and 2011, the Company decreased its costs significantly and intends to maintain costs at a minimum while allowing the Company to do the next phases of exploration on its projects. The Company will evaluate over the coming year whether it makes sense to divest or reduce some of its Uganda projects by either bringing in another partner(s), and/or selling in whole or in part its interests in such projects. In addition, the Company intends to raise some equity or debt financing in the coming year.
 
These financial statements do not give effect to adjustments to the amounts and classifications to assets and liabilities that would be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
 
3. PROCEEDS OF DISPOSITION RECEIVABLE
 
Proceeds of disposition receivable amounting to $ nil (July 31, 2011 - $nil) consist of $118,901 receivable in respect of the sale of Yunnan Long Teng Mining Ltd. (July 31, 2011 - $118,901), carried net of an allowance for uncollectible amounts of $118,901 (July 31, 2011 - $118,901). The Company did not collect any of this receivable in the year ended July 31, 2012. The Company collected $60,000 in 2011.
 
4. RECEIVABLE FROM RELATED PARTY

On November 8, 2007, AMF entered into a license transfer agreement (the “License Transfer Agreement”) with the Grantor under which the Grantor agreed to transfer 100% of the right, title and interest to the licenses comprising the Mwerusandu Property and the Mitoma Property to AMF Ltd. for consideration already paid under the option agreements.  The Ugandan Department of Geological Survey and Mines ratified the transfer of the licenses on December 20, 2007, and accordingly AMF Ltd. then held a 100% interest in the Mwerusandu Property and Mitoma properties. The Grantor was entitled to receive from AMF Ltd. a net smelter returns royalty on the Mwerusandu and Mitoma properties on a sliding scale between 0.5% (if the gold price is below $250/oz.) and 2.1% (if the gold price is above $1,200/oz.), depending on the price of gold when the NSR is being paid.
 
In addition to the Mwerusandu licenses transferred to AMF Ltd. under the License Transfer Agreement, AMF Ltd. received an additional exploration license covering 147.63 sq. km.  During fiscal year 2008, three licenses were renewed for a period of two years, each with a 50% reduction in area, so that the Mwerusandu Property was then comprised of four exploration licenses covering 175.43 sq. km. During the  year ended July 31, 2010, three of the licenses expired and were not renewed. A further license was transferred to Kamu Kamu Drilling Experts Ltd. (“Kamu Kamu”) as part of an agreement to settle a legal action brought against the Company by Kamu Kamu in December 2008. The Company no longer holds any licenses at Mwerusandu.
 
In the year ended July 31, 2008, AMF received two additional exploration licenses on the Mitoma property covering 159.49 sq. km.  During 2008 four licenses were renewed for a period of two years with a 50% reduction in area and one license was relinquished.  At July 31, 2009, the Mitoma Property comprised of seven exploration licenses covering 359.49 sq. km. During the year ending July 31, 2010, three licenses expired and was relinquished. A further four licenses were transferred to Kamu Kamu as part of the settlement agreement.

In the year ended July 31, 2008, AMF received four additional exploration licenses on the Lugazi property covering 1359.17 sq. km. During the year ended July 31, 2010, the five Lugazi licenses were transferred to Kamu Kamu as part of the settlement agreement. As at July 31, 2012, the Company no longer holds any licenses at Lugazi.

The fair values of the options granted November 1, 2007 were estimated at $0.35 per share, the fair values of the options granted January 31, 2008 were estimated at $0.14 per share, the fair values of the options re-priced and extended on January 31, 2008 were estimated at $0.14 per share and the fair values of the options granted May 28, 2008 were estimated at $0.13 per share. The fair values of the options granted in the year ended July 31, 2006 were estimated at values ranging from $0.18 per share to $1.08 per share. The fair values of the options granted in the years 2005 and 2004 were estimated at $1.05 per share and $0.47 per share, respectively. The valuations were performed using the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model with the following weighted average assumptions:

   
2008
   
2006
   
2005
   
2004
 
                         
Volatility:
 
67 to 72%
      53 %     80 %     256 %
Risk-free interest rate:
 
2.43% to 3.23%
      4.04 %     3.13 %     2.54 %
Dividend yield:
    --       --       --       --  
Expected lives (years):
 
1 to 5
      5       5       5  

Option-pricing models require the use of highly subjective estimates and assumptions including the expected stock price volatility.  Changes in the underlying assumptions can materially affect the fair value estimates and therefore, in management’s opinion, existing models do not necessarily provide reliable measure of the fair value of the Company’s stock options.
 
12. INCOME TAXES
 
The Company is subject to United States income taxes, Canadian income taxes (to the extent of its operations in Canada) and Ugandan income taxes (to the extent of its operations in Uganda).  The Company had no income tax expense during the reported periods due to net operating losses.
 
A reconciliation of income tax expense to the amount computed at the statutory rates is as follows:
