1. NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS
Press Ventures, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on October 5, 2010 and is a start-up, exploration stage company. The Company has acquired mineral properties located in the Province of British Columbia, Canada, but has not yet determined whether these properties contain reserves that are economically recoverable. The recoverability of costs incurred for acquisition and exploration of the properties will be dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, confirmation of the Company’s interest in the underlying properties, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing to satisfy the expenditure requirements and to complete the development of the properties and upon future profitable production or proceeds from the sale thereof.
These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis which assumes the Company will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. The Company has incurred a loss since inception resulting in an accumulated deficit of $69,740 as at October 31, 2012 and further losses are anticipated in the development of its business, raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company generating profitable operations in the future and/or obtaining the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management intends to finance operating costs over the next twelve months with existing cash on hand and loans from directors and or private placement of common stock.
