Discovery Strategy
CREATE SHAREHOLDER VALUE THROUGH DISCOVERY
•
•
•
•
•
•
Scientific & systematic approach to identify new prospective terrain
Well-developed targeting criteria used to recognize “off-the-beatentrack” opportunities
District-scale properties acquired to envelope camp-scale discoveries
Targeting high value precious metal or precious metal-rich polymetallic deposits
Company expertise & experience is combined with modern &
innovative exploration tools to generate and screen early-stage
targets
Shareholder value created through discoveries, partnerships with
mining firms to advance projects & ultimately from a return on
investment from participation in producing mines
Tri Origin’s business is to make discoveries with camp-scale
potential that attract mining partners
Working Principles
To enact its strategy Tri Origin is respectful of;
•
•
•
•
Maintaining a high level of Corporate Governance and
transparency to shareholders
Minimizing investment risk by security of land title & exploring
in areas with established infrastructure and low political risk
Using investors funds responsibly through low corporate
overheads & effective assessment of targets
Operating with safety, the environment & Corporate Social
Responsibility in mind
State of the Industry
Recent Pessimism
• Resource market values have been destroyed
• Liquidity is near zero
• Investors are in despair & have fled
• Major mining companies are in difficulty
• Survival has been the operating principle
The Return of the Speculator
•
•
•
•
•
•
R. Widdop circa 1999
It’s time for optimism
Junior resource Boom & Bust cycles are normal
We are past the crash stage
Producing companies are healing their wounds
Mergers & cash takeovers are now happening
because of low market valuations
Producers will next look to explorers to fill the
pipeline to replace dwindling reserves
Investors will return to the market
2014 In Review
Progress made in the Canadian Shield;
• Dr. Alan Galley joined the Board of Directors
• Work permits approved by the Ontario government at all projects allowing planned activities
to be conducted for the coming two years
• Geological surveying at the North Abitibi project continued to highlight importance of known
gold zones & outline opportunities for new discoveries
• Prospective new targets identified at the RLX project at Red Lake following termination of
option with Osisko Mining Corp
• Senior mining firms targeted to secure a funding partner for ongoing exploration at RLX
• Potential gold and base metal acquisitions in overlooked mining areas in Ontario were
reviewed to strengthen future property portfolio
A Major Change to TOE’s Australian Investment;
• Australian affiliate TriAusMin merged with Heron Resources to advance the Woodlawn
Underground project through utilization of Heron’s $35 million in cash
• Equity investment in HER had a value of $1,886,151 at Sept 30, 2014
Objectives for 2015
Make new Discoveries of Economically-Viable Gold & Base Metal Deposits
To do that we will;
• Add exciting new projects & partnerships to the
Company’s portfolio
• Secure a senior partner for RLX project, Red
Lake, ON
• Advance gold occurrences at North Abitibi
project, Abitibi Greenstone Belt, ON, through
drilling
• Utilize investment funds to grow the Company’s
asset base

Red Lake is one of the richest gold

More than 20 million ounces of
gold produced
Comparable to other prolific gold
mining districts including: Hemlo,
Timmins and Kirkland Lake
Senior mining companies have a
long history in the area
Tri Origin identified a unique
opportunity in the District

property
859 claim units (140 sq kms)- one of the largest landholdings in the district
Over $3.5 M expended to build a geotechnical database & advance the project
– Gold-bearing environments confirmed by initial drilling
– Confirmation that the “Red Lake Mine Trend” extends across the property
•
10 kilometres of prospective “Red Lake Mine” host rocks require detailed
exploration and drilling at orebody-scale targets

RLX is a very large

It needs to be wellcapitalized
Sustainable, long-term

Objective is to maximize
funding to drill targets
Equity financings in the
current market will not
accomplish project goals
North Abitibi




100% interest in 28 km2 property in the Abitibi Greenstone Belt - one of the
worlds most prolific metal-producing regions
Known gold occurrences on the property are in a regionally productive belt
of rocks that includes the Casa Berardi & Estrades Mines & Joutel District
Overburden hindered earlier geophysical/geochemical exploration
Interest renewed in the area due to successful production from the Detour

Investment in Heron
Tri Origin owns 12.6 million shares of Heron Resources Ltd: an Australian
development-stage base and precious metals company
Investment value: $1.88 million (based on TSX market price at Sept 30, 2014)
A focus on the Woodlawn Project
Past-producing Woodlawn Open Pit & Underground Mine
Historical Processing: 1978 to 1998
13.8Mt @ 9.1% Zn, 3.6% Pb, 1.6% Cu, 74g/t Ag, 0.5g/t Au
Utilization of Heron Investment
The merger between TriAusMin, the Company’s former subsidiary and Heron
terminated Tri Origin’s involvement in Australian activities and resulted in a
refocussing of the Company’s business strategy
•
•
•
•
•
Heron will continue with exploration & development of Resource &
Reserve-based assets in the Lachlan Fold Belt of NSW, Australia
Drill results released by Heron have been encouraging & plans are to
access underground workings at the past-producing Woodlawn mine
Heron has ~$35 million in cash
Tri Origin believes that Heron’s efforts will be successful and its equity
investment will increase in value
Tri Origin plans to utilize this investment to grow its asset base in the
Canadian Shield
Tri Origin’s business plan involves capitalizing on the investment at the appropriate time to
achieve company objectives and add to its discovery strategy
Plans for 2015
A New “Discovery Strategy” will commence involving;
• Increasing activities in the Canadian Shield
• Acquiring new projects & partners
• Renewing exploration at RLX with a new funding partner
• Evaluating Gold Zones at North Abitibi
• Making Discoveries
Tri Origin thanks its shareholders for their continued
support and looks forward to a successful 2014
