Islands they comprise  the Fauro Project  (located on Fauro  Island), and  the 
Guadalcanal Joint Venture with Newmont Mining Corporation, and in Ecuador a JV
with Cornerstone Capital Resources on the Cascabel gold-copper project.

In July 2012, SolGold  and Cornerstone Capital  Resources Inc. announced  that 
they had signed a Definitive Option  Agreement whereby SolGold may acquire  up 
to 85% of Cornerstone's 100%  owned 5,000 hectare Cascabel  gold-copper-silver 
property in northern Ecuador.

The Cascabel  project  is located  approximately  120 km  north  of  Ecuador's 
capital, Quito, 20 km south of the Colombian border, and 75 km inland from the
coastal city  of San  Lorenzo.  The gold-copper  porphyry project  is  located 
within the Andean  western cordillera,  host to  numerous Tier  1 world  class 
copper-gold deposits through Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia.

At the Rannes project SolGold  has announced Indicated and Inferred  resources 
of 18.7 million tonnes at 0.9 g/t gold equivalent (gold + silver) for  550,146 
ounces of gold  equivalent (296,657 ounces  of gold and  10,137,736 ounces  of 
silver; see  announcement  dated 23  May  2012  for details  of  the  resource 
statement and gold equivalent ratios). The 2012 exploration program, including

Exploration continues at Mt. Perry, Normanby and Cracow West.

In the Solomon Islands, the 2012 exploration program on the Fauro project  has 
been delayed while a  JV partner is sought  to pursue drilling of  gold-copper 
targets defined in the  2011 exploration program.  The 2012 Guadalcanal  Joint 
Venture with NVL Solomon Islands Limited (a subsidiary of NYSE-listed  Newmont 
Mining Corporation)  is  now  seeking expressions  of  interest  for  possible 

SolGold's strategy  is  to  be  an  integrated  gold  and  copper  discoverer,
