PART I

ITEM 1.    BUSINESS

Company Overview
 
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 12, 2005 to engage in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral deposits and reserves.  On November 23, 2005 we entered into a Mineral Claim Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) with Mineral Exploration Services, Ltd. (“MES”) pursuant to which we acquired an option to purchase certain unpatented mineral mining claims.  The related property consisted of ten lode mineral claims located on approximately 200 acres in Humboldt County, Nevada.  Under the terms of the Agreement, we agreed to pay MES an aggregate of $50,000 over five years and to make exploration expenditures on the property of $50,000 over the same five year period.  During the initial exploration, no commercial quantities of gold or other minerals were discovered and in August 2007, we ceased exploration on the prospect.  On August 16, 2007 we notified MES of our intention to return the property via a quit claim deed.  At that time, MES informed us that it no longer wanted to retain the claim or the property and MES subsequently allowed such claim to lapse.  Our Agreement with MES was terminated as of September 16, 2007.  At the time of the termination, we had paid MES an aggregate of $7,000 under the Agreement.  In October 2007, we re-staked the claims in the property and paid the necessary fees to the Bureau of Land Management.  The lease to the property is currently in our name.  We do not claim to have any minerals or reserves whatsoever at this time on any of the property.  Our management has no current plans for the property at this time, and all of our exploration operations have been discontinued.  Following the discontinuation of our planned mineral acquisition, exploration and development activities through the present we have determined to look at other ventures of merit to enhance shareholder value.  These ventures may involve sales of our debt or equity security in merger, acquisition or similar transactions.  To date, we have achieved no operating revenues and have yet to engage in any such ventures.

Patents, Trademarks and Licenses

We do not presently own any patents, trademarks, copyrights or other forms of intellectual property.

Research and Development

We have not performed any research and development since our inception.

Employees

As of December 22, 2009 our only employee is our sole executive officer.

Loans

On May 8, 2009 we received an $80,000 loan from one person and in connection therewith issued an 8.25%, $80,000 convertible promissory note dated May 8, 2009. Subject to prior conversion, interest and principal are due on the note on November 8, 2010. The terms of conversion have not been determined but will be mutually determined by us and the holder.

Change of Control

Not Applicable.

ITEM 1A.    RISK FACTORS

We have a history of operating losses which may continue.

We have a history of losses and will continue to incur operating and net losses for the foreseeable future. We incurred net losses of $55,469 and $82,146 during the years ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  As of September 30, 2009, our accumulated deficit was $230,970. We have not achieved revenues since our inception.   Unless and until we commence new business operations, we may never achieve revenue or profitability.

Our auditors have indicated that our inability to generate sufficient revenue raises substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern.

Our audited financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2009 were prepared on a going concern basis in accordance with United States generally accounting principles. The going concern basis of presentation assumes that we will continue in operation for the foreseeable future and will be able to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. However, our auditors have indicated that our lack of revenues and accumulated losses raise substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. In the absence of additional financing or significant revenues and profits, we may have to cease operations. However, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to obtain sufficient additional funds when needed, or that such funds, if available, will be obtainable on terms satisfactory to us. In the event that our plans cannot be effectively realized, there can be no assurance that we will be able to continue as a going concern.

Rules issued under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 may make it difficult for us to retain or attract qualified officers and directors, which could adversely affect the management of our business and our ability to retain listing of our common stock.

We may be unable to attract and retain those qualified officers, directors and members of board committees required to provide for our effective management because of rules and regulations that govern publicly held companies, including, but not limited to, certifications by principal executive officers. The enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has resulted in the issuance of rules and regulations and the strengthening of existing rules and regulations by the SEC, as well as the adoption of new and more stringent rules by the stock exchanges and NASDAQ. The perceived personal risk associated with these rules and regulations may deter qualified individuals from accepting roles as directors and executive officers.

If we fail to maintain an effective system of disclosure and internal controls, we may not be able to accurately report our financial results or detect fraud. Consequently, investors could lose confidence in our financial reporting and this may decrease the trading price of our stock.

We must maintain effective disclosure and internal controls to provide reliable financial reports and detect fraud. Based on our evaluation as of September 30, 2009, we concluded that we do maintain effective disclosure controls and procedures. Failure to implement changes to our controls that we may identify in the future as necessary to maintain an effective system of such controls could harm our operating results and cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information. Any such loss of confidence would have a negative effect on the trading price of our stock.

We have no present business operations. Accordingly, you have little basis upon which to evaluate our ability to achieve future business success.

We were formed to engage in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral deposits and reserves.  We discontinued operations in this area in August 2007.  We are presently looking at other ventures of merit but, to date, have not found any suitable ventures.  No assurance can be given that we will ever locate and establish a suitable business venture.  Our operations are therefore subject to all of the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business enterprise and must be considered in light of the expenses, difficulties, complications and delays frequently encountered in connection with the formation of any new business.

We may be unable to obtain additional capital that we will require to implement our business plan, which would restrict our ability to grow.

We have a limited amount of working capital that will not be sufficient to fully fund our planned operations. We will require additional capital to continue to operate and expand our business. We may be unable to obtain the additional capital required.

Future acquisitions, as well as administrative requirements (such as salaries, insurance expenses and general overhead expenses, as well as legal compliance and accounting expenses) will require a substantial amount of additional capital and cash flow. We may not be successful in locating suitable financing transactions in the time period required or at all, and we may not be able to obtain the capital we require by other means. If we do not succeed in raising additional capital, we may be unable to fund our operations going forward.

Our ability to obtain needed financing may be impaired by such factors as the capital markets and our status as an enterprise without a demonstrated operating history.  If the amount of capital we are able to raise from financing activities is not sufficient to satisfy our capital needs, we may be required to curtail or cease our operations.
 
6


We may incur substantial costs in pursuing future capital financing, including investment banking fees, legal fees, accounting fees, securities law compliance fees, printing and distribution expenses and other costs. We also may be required to recognize non-cash expenses in connection with certain securities we may issue, such as convertible notes and warrants, which may adversely impact our financial condition.

We may not be able to effectively expand operations or manage our growth, which may harm our profitability.

Our strategy envisions expanding our business. If we fail to effectively manage our growth, our financial results could be adversely affected. Growth may place a strain on our management systems and resources. We must continue to refine and expand our business development capabilities, our systems and processes, and our access to financing sources. As we grow, we must continue to hire, train, supervise and manage new employees. We cannot assure you that we will be able to:

 
·
meet our capital needs;

 
·
expand our systems effectively or efficiently or in a timely manner;

 
·
allocate our human resources optimally;

 
·
identify and hire qualified employees or retain valued employees; or

 
·
incorporate effectively the components of any business that we may acquire in our effort to achieve growth.

If we are unable to manage our growth, our operations and our financial results could be adversely affected by inefficiency, which could diminish our profitability.

Our business may suffer if we do not attract and retain talented personnel.

Our success will depend in large measure on the abilities, expertise, judgment, discretion, integrity and good faith of our management and other personnel in conducting our intended business. We presently have a small management team consisting of our sole executive officer that we expect to expand in conjunction with our planned acquisition activities. The loss of a key individual or our inability to attract suitably qualified staff could have a materially adverse impact on our business. We presently do not maintain “key man” life insurance on any member of our management team.  If we are unable to attract and retain key personnel, our business may be adversely affected.

The lack of a trading market for our common stock may impair your ability to sell your shares.

There has not been a trading market for our common stock since our inception. The lack of an active market may impair your ability to sell your shares at the time you wish to sell them or at a price that you consider reasonable. The lack of an active market may also reduce the fair market value of your shares. An inactive market may also impair our ability to raise capital by selling shares of capital stock and may impair our ability to acquire other assets or companies by using common stock as consideration.

Our common stock is currently quoted on the NASD’s Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board under the symbol “THSM.OB.” As indicated above, our common stock is not presently trading. As a result, investors may find it difficult to obtain accurate quotations of the price of our common stock. This situation severely limits the liquidity of the common stock and hampers our ability to raise additional capital.

We do not expect to pay dividends in the foreseeable future.

We do not intend to declare dividends for the foreseeable future, as we anticipate that we will reinvest future earnings in the development and growth of our business. Therefore, investors will not receive any funds unless they sell their common stock, and stockholders may be unable to sell their shares on favorable terms or at all. Investors cannot be assured of a positive return on investment or that they will not lose the entire amount of their investment in our common stock.

Applicable SEC rules governing the trading of “penny stocks” will limit the trading and liquidity of our common stock, which may affect the trading price of our common stock.

Our common stock is considered to be a “penny stock” and is therefore subject to SEC rules and regulations that (i) impose limitations upon the manner in which our shares may be publicly traded and (ii) regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks.” Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system). The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer must also provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. In addition, the penny stock rules generally require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock, the broker-dealer make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules and may increase the difficulty investors might experience in attempting to liquidate such securities.

ITEM 3.    LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

Legal Proceedings

In the ordinary course of our business, we may from time to time become subject to routine litigation or administrative proceedings which are incidental to our business.  We are not a party to nor are we aware of any existing, pending or threatened lawsuits or other legal actions involving us.

ITEM 4.    SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS

No matters were submitted to a vote of security holders, through the solicitation of proxies or otherwise, during the fourth quarter of the fiscal year covered by this report.

Dividends

We have never declared any cash dividends with respect to our common stock.  Future payment of dividends is within the discretion of our board of directors and will depend on our earnings, capital requirements, financial condition and other relevant factors.  Although there are no material restrictions limiting, or that are likely to limit, our ability to pay dividends on our common stock, we presently intend to retain future earnings, if any, for use in our business and have no present intention to pay cash dividends on our common stock.

Recent Sales of Unregistered Equity Securities

During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009, we issued no equity securities.

ITEM 6.    SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

Not applicable.

ITEM 7.    MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Results of Operations

We have conducted no material operations during the year ended September 30, 2009 and do not have any present operations. During the year ended September 30, 2009, we generated no revenues.  Accordingly, a discussion of our results of operations is not meaningful and will not be presented herein.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The report of our auditors on our audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009 contains a going concern qualification as we have suffered losses since our inception.  We have minimal assets and have achieved no operative revenues since our inception.  We have depended on loans and sales of equity securities to conduct operations.  As of September 30, 2009 and 2008, we had cash of $nil and $7,591, current assets of $4 and $7,591 and current liabilities of $88,802 and $40,920, respectively.  Unless and until we commence material operations and achieve material revenues, we will remain dependent on financings to continue our operations.

Plan of Operation

We were formed to engage in the acquisition, exploration and development of minimal deposits and reserves.  We conducted minimal operations in this line of business and in August 2007 decided to discontinue operations in this area.  We are presently inactive, but we are looking at ventures of merit for corporate participation as means of enhancing shareholder value. This may involve sales of our equity or debt securities in merger or acquisition transactions.
 
10


We have minimal operating costs and expenses at the present time due to our limited business activities.  Accordingly, absent changed circumstances, we will not be required to raise significant capital over the next twelve months, although we may do so in connection with or in anticipation of possible acquisition transactions.  We do not currently engage in any product research and development and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future.  We have no present plans to purchase or sell any plant or significant equipment.  We also have no present plans to add employees although we may do so in the future if we engage in any merger or acquisition transactions.

ITEM 8.    FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTAL DATA

Our audited financial statements are included beginning immediately following the signature page to this report.  See Item 15 for a list of the financial statements included herein.

ITEM 9.    CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

Not applicable.

ITEM 9A.[T]    CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Our Disclosure Controls

Under the supervision and with the participation of our senior management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, Nanuk Warman, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this annual report (the “Evaluation Date”).  Based on this evaluation, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded as of the Evaluation Date that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective such that the information relating to us, including our consolidated subsidiaries, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting.  Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.  With the participation of Nanuk Warman, our Chief Executive and Financial Officer, our management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2009 based on the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control – Integrated Framework.  Based upon such evaluation, our management concluded that we did maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2009 based on the COSO framework criteria.
 
11


This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

Officers’ Certifications

Appearing as exhibits to this Annual Report are “Certifications” of our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.  The Certifications are required pursuant to Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Section 302 Certifications”).  This section of the Annual Report contains information concerning the Controls Evaluation referred to in the Section 302 Certification.  This information should be read in conjunction with the Section 302 Certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended September 30, 2009 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 10.    DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Executive Officers, Directors and Key Employees

Directors serve until the next annual meeting of the stockholders; until their successors are elected or appointed and qualified, or until their prior resignation or removal.  Officers serve for such terms as determined by our board of directors.  Each officer holds office until such officer’s successor is elected or appointed and qualified or until such officer’s earlier resignation or removal.  No family relationships exist between any of our present directors and officers.

Certain biographical information of our directors and officers is set forth below.

Nanuk Warman

Nanuk Warman, has served as our President, Chief Executive and Financial Officer, Secretary, Treasurer and Director since June 9, 2008.  Mr. Warman has been President, Chief Executive and Financial Officer, Treasurer, and Member of the Board of Directors of Mariposa Resources since May 31, 2006. He obtained his Certified Management Accountant (CMA) designation in October 1998 and has been a member in good standing since with the Certified Management Accountants Society of British Columbia. As of August, 2007, he has earned the right to use the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation and is a member in good standing with the CFA Institute. Mr. Warman is a self-employed consultant (since 1998), assisting companies with their preparation of financial statements for review and audit by independent accounting firms and with ongoing accounting compliance matters. From December 2006 - present, he is serving as a director of Coastline Corporate Services, Inc., a Florida company that is quoted on the OTCBB under the symbol “CCSV”.  From 2000 - 2003, he served as president of Neutron Enterprises, Inc., a company that currently trades on the OTCBB under the symbol of “STKG”.

Employment Agreements

We have no formal employment agreements with any of our employees.  We presently pay Mr. Warman under an informal arrangement in which we are paying Mr. Warman approximately $8,000 per year.

Term of Office

Our directors are appointed for a period of one year or until such time as their replacements have been elected by our shareholders.  The officers of the Company are appointed by our board of directors and hold office until their resignation or removal.
 
13


Audit Committee

We do not have a standing audit committee, an audit committee financial expert, or any committee or person performing a similar function.  We currently have limited working capital and no revenues.  Management does not believe that it would be in our best interests at this time to retain independent directors to sit on an audit committee.  If we are able to raise sufficient financing in the future, then we will likely seek out and retain independent directors and form an audit, compensation committee and other applicable committees.

Board of Directors

Our only director is our sole executive officer.  He is not an independent director.  We do not pay him for attending board meetings.  He is reimbursed, however, for his expenses, if any, for attendance at meetings of the Board of Directors.  Our Board of Directors may designate from among its members an executive committee and one or more other committees but has not done so to date.  We do not have a nominating committee or a nominating committee charter.  Further, we do not have a policy with regard to the consideration of any director candidates recommended by security holders.  To date this has not been a problem as no security holders have made any such recommendations.  Our sole director performs all functions that would otherwise be performed by committees.  Given the present size of our board it is not practical for us to have committees.  If we are able to grow our business and increase our operations we intend to expand the size of our board and allocate responsibilities accordingly.

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

Our common stock is not registered pursuant to Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).  Accordingly, our officers, directors and principal shareholders are not subject to the beneficial ownership reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act.

Code of Ethics

In 2006 we adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to all of our employees.  A copy of our Code of Ethics will be provided to any person requesting same without charge.  To request a copy of our Code of Ethics, please make written request to our President c/o Touchstone Mining Limited at 11923 SW 37 Terrace, Miami, FL 33175.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
To The Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Touchstone Mining Limited
Miami, Florida
 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Touchstone Mining Limited (a development stage company) (the “Company”) as of September 30, 2009 and 2008, and the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended. 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 of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its 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, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, based on our audit, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2009 and 2008, and the results of its operations and cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 7 to the financial statements, the Company has not generated revenues from operations and has incurred significant net losses since inception. This raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to meet its obligations and to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to this matter are described in Note 7. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

1.
Organization
 
Touchstone Mining Limited (the “Company”) was incorporated on September 12, 2005 in the State of Nevada, USA, and is based in Miami, Florida.  The accounting and reporting policies of the Company conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and the Company’s fiscal year end is September 30.
 
The Company was initially incorporated for the purpose of engaging in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral resource properties.  The Company has obtained the right to conduct exploration work on ten mineral mining claims in Humboldt County, Nevada, USA. Prior to this, the Company’s activities have been limited to its formation, the raising of equity capital, and its mining exploration work program.  Although the Company has not disposed of its interest in its mining properties (Note 5), it has discontinued exploration on the property and is actively seeking other ventures of interest that may include, but not be limited to, mergers, acquisitions, or similar transactions.
 
Development Stage Company
 
The Company is considered to be in the development stage as defined in FASC 915-10-05 “Development Stage Entity.

Significant Accounting Policies
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of the Company’s 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 amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The Company’s periodic filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission include, where applicable, disclosures of estimates, assumptions, uncertainties, and markets that could affect the financial statements and future operations of the Company.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
Cash and cash equivalents include cash in banks, money market funds, and certificates of term deposits with maturities of less than three months, which are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and which, in the opinion of management, are subject to an insignificant risk of loss in value. The Company had $nil and $7,591 in cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Mineral Acquisition and Exploration Costs

The Company has been in the development stage since its formation on September 12, 2005 and has not yet realized any revenue from its planned operations. It has been primarily engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mining properties.  Mineral property acquisition and exploration costs are expensed as incurred.  When it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed as a result of establishing proven and probable reserves, the costs incurred to develop such property are capitalized.  Such costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable reserves.

Start-Up Costs

In accordance with FASC 720-15-20 “Start-up Activities,” the Company expenses all costs incurred in connection with the start-up and organization of the Company.
 
Net Income or (Loss) Per Share of Common Stock
 
The Company has adopted FASC 260-10-20, “Earnings per Share,” (“EPS”) which requires presentation of basic and diluted EPS on the face of the statements of operations for all entities with complex capital structures and requires a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic EPS computation to the numerator and denominator of the diluted EPS computation.  In the accompanying financial statements, basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The Company has no potentially dilutive securities, such as options or warrants, currently issued and outstanding.
 
The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share:

Concentrations of Credit Risk
 
The Company’s financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk primarily consist of its cash and cash equivalents and related party payables it will likely incur in the near future.  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.  The Company’s management plans to assess the financial strength and credit worthiness of any parties to which it extends funds, and as such, it believes that any associated credit risk exposures are limited.
 
Risks and Uncertainties
 
The Company previously operated 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.
 
Environmental Expenditures
 
The operations of the Company have been, and may in the future be, affected from time to time in varying degree 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.
 
Environmental expenditures that relate to ongoing environmental and reclamation programs are charged against earnings as incurred or capitalized and amortized depending on their future economic benefits.  All of these types of expenditures incurred since inception have been charged against earnings due to the uncertainty of their future recoverability.  Estimated future reclamation and site restoration costs, when the ultimate liability is reasonably determinable, are charged against earnings over the estimated remaining life of the related business operation, net of expected recoveries.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2009, the FASB established the Accounting Standards Codification (“Codification” or “ASC”) as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”). Rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) issued under authority of federal securities laws are also sources of GAAP for SEC registrants. Existing GAAP was not intended to be changed as a result of the Codification, and accordingly the change did not impact our financial statements. The ASC does change the way the guidance is organized and presented.

Stockholders’ Equity
 
Authorized Stock
 
The Company has authorized 100,000,000 common shares with a par value of $0.00001 per share.  Each common share entitles the holder to one vote, in person or proxy, on any matter on which action of the stockholders of the corporation is sought.
 
Share Issuances
 
Since inception (September 12, 2005), the Company has issued 3,100,000 common shares at $0.02 per share for $62,000 in cash, and 138,889 common shares at $0.36 per share for $50,000 in cash, for total proceeds of $112,000.  The Company also issued 3,000,000 common shares at $0.01 per share in satisfaction of debt of $34,502.  There were 6,238,889 common shares issued and outstanding at September 30, 2009 and 2008.

4. 
Provision for Income Taxes

The Company recognizes the tax effects of transactions in the year in which such transactions enter into the determination of net income, regardless of when reported for tax purposes. Deferred taxes are provided in the financial statements under FASC 718-740-20 to give effect to the resulting temporary differences which may arise from differences in the bases of fixed assets, depreciation methods, allowances, and start-up costs based on the income taxes expected to be payable in future years.

Provision for Income Taxes (continued)

Minimal development stage deferred tax assets arising as a result of net operating loss carryforwards have been offset completely by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of their utilization in future periods. Operating loss carryforwards generated during the period from September 12, 2005 (date of inception) through September 30, 2009 of $230,970 will begin to expire in 2025. Accordingly, deferred tax assets of approximately $80,800 (assuming an effective maximum statutory rate of 35%) were offset by the valuation allowance, which increased by approximately $19,400 and $28,800 during the year ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

The Company follows the provisions of uncertain tax positions as addressed in FASC 740-10-65-1. The Company recognized approximately no increase in the liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

The Company has no tax positions at September 30, 2009 and 2008 for which the ultimate deductibility is highly certain but for which there is uncertainty about the timing of such deductibility. The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses. No such interest or penalties were recognized during the periods presented. The Company had no accruals for interest and penalties at September 30, 2009 or 2008.

5. 
Mineral Property Costs
 
By agreement dated November 23, 2005 with Mineral Exploration Services Ltd. (“MES”), the Company acquired an option to acquire a 100% interest in certain properties consisting of 10 unpatented mineral claims, known as the Boulder Claims (the “Property”) located in Humboldt County, Nevada, USA.
 
Upon execution of the agreement, MES transferred 100% interest in the mineral claims to the Company for $50,000 to be paid, at the Company’s option, as follows:
 
   
Cash Payments
 
Upon signing of the agreement and transfer of title (paid)
  $ 3,500  
On or before November 23, 2006 (paid)
    3,500  
On or before November 23, 2007
    8,000  
On or before November 23, 2008
    10,000  
On or before November 23, 2009
    10,000  
On or before November 23, 2010
    15,000  
    $ 50,000  

In August 2007, the Company reached an agreement with MES, whereby MES relinquished its rights to the Property but whereby kept its interest.  During the year ended September 30, 2008, the Company proceeded to stake the claims in its own name.  The Company is no longer obligated to make the payments outlined above for 2007 through 2010, and is only responsible for maintaining the mineral claims in good standing by paying all the necessary rents, taxes, and filing fees associated with the Property.  As of September 30, 2009, the Company owed $1,900 for filing fees.

Mineral Property Costs (continued)
 
Although the Company has not disposed of its interest in the Property, it has discontinued exploration and is currently evaluating its options and is seeking other ventures of interest.

A $4,330 reclamation bond has been paid to the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in the State of Nevada.  This bond will be held by the BLM until such time as it determines that the mineral property has been properly reclaimed and indigenous species of plants have been planted and are growing.  Given the uncertainty of any future exploration and/or additional work on the property, that the Company will perform and the additional time needed before a BLM inspector can view the property, this bond has been accounted for as a non-current asset.  Management estimates the costs to restore the property will be nominal and that the entire bond will be recovered as a result.
 
6. 
Note Payable
 
On May 8, 2009 the Company received an $80,000 unsecured loan from an individual and in connection therewith issued an 8.25% $80,000 convertible promissory note dated May 8, 2009.  If not converted, interest and principal are due at maturity on November 8, 2010. Interest expense and accrued interest as of and for the year ended September 30, 2009 totaled $2,622.  The terms of conversion have not been determined but will be mutually determined by the Company and the holder.

7. 
Going Concern and Liquidity Considerations
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As of September 30, 2009, the Company had a working capital deficit of $88,798 and an accumulated deficit of $230,970.  The Company intends to fund operations through equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements for the next twelve months.

The ability of the Company to emerge from the development stage is dependent upon, among other things, obtaining additional financing to continue operations.  In response to these problems, management intends to raise additional funds through public or private placement offerings.

These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Subsequent Events

The Company has evaluated subsequent events from the balance sheet date through December 22, 2009 and determined there are no items to disclose.
