        Investment Highlights – Treasure Canyon Lode

        • 10 mining claims covering 200 acres of mineral deposits centered on the world-class Lights Creek Mining District of Plumas County, CA.
        • Production Project – an estimated 10,000 ounces mined historically.
        • Claims current, Plan of Operation filed.
        • High-grade gold; assay showing 29+ ounces/ton gold (822+ g/t Au).
        • 5 identified heavy multi-metal veins of (primarily gold with silver, PGM, base and rare earth metals).
        • 3rd party geological appraisal indicates ~3.6 million gold ounces from only 2 veins; Valued at $4.3 billion at $1,200/oz gold at time of appraisal ($6.8 Billion at $1900/oz gold).
        • Minimal Capex to Production: Mining tunnel timbers burned in forest fire, collapsing tunnel; easily cleaned, reconstructed with steel and concrete to re-start mining operation – production in weeks, not years.
        • Extensive placer gold, “the low hanging fruit”.
        • Great infrastructure, mining-friendly jurisdiction, major city.
        • Expansion potential for deposit and adjacent property acquisitions.
        • Seasoned team, including company officers working project for several years to understand deposit.
        Treasure Canyon Lode
        • EON Discovery, a Buscar (OTC: CGLD) company, was created to be the operating entity for the Treasure Canyon Lode project.
        • Claims are in place and valid, EPA studies have been passed, Regional Water Quality Board has given approval, Mining Plan of Operation awaiting approval from the Forest Service.
        • Discovered in 1920 approximately 2 hours from Reno, NV providing excellent access and infrastructure to a world-class district in a mining-friendly jurisdiction.
        • 200 acres, 10 mining claims worked by EON Mining officer since 1999
        • Lode claims encompass vein deposits of gold, silver, platinum and other valuable minerals; placer deposits of gold, silver and platinum; and porphyry copper deposits.
        • 5 identified veins
        • Geophysical studies to date mapping the surface expression of mineralization indicate a very wide zone of mineralization surrounding the veins, as wide as 120 feet. This is due to hot fluid alteration of the surrounding country rock when the quartz veins were emplaced.
        • Trenches and test holes support a thesis of strong mineralization.
        • rd party geologist appraisal based upon 2 of 5 veins (the Otto and Ada veins) estimated reserves of ~3.6 million gold ounces for a value of $4.3 billion at $1,200/oz gold at time of appraisal, which has since climbed to over $6.8 Billion at $1900/oz gold.
        • Significant expansion opportunity – planned geophysical survey will further define mineralization and vein extensions and identify targets for core drilling.
        • Excellent infrastructure: on-site water (creek), County road through claims, power line less than 5 miles away
        Vein Volume (yds) Tons Avg Grade (oz/ton) Reserves (ounces) Value @ $1200/oz for gold
        Otto Vein 1,707,778 3,415,556 0.5 1,707,778 $ 2,049,333,60003
        Ada Vein (west side) 540,000 1,080,000 1.0 1,080,000 $ 1,296,000,000
        Ada Vein (east side) 407,000 814,000 0.5 407,00 $ 488,400,000
        North South Vein 57,778 115,556 0.25 28,889 $ 15,888,950
        Placer Deposit 28,889 57,778 0.5 28,889 $ 34,666,800
        Other Minerals 345,000 $ 414,000,000
        Total Reserves 3,597,556 $ 4,298,289,350

        Note: the calculations presented here are based on concentrations of gold from creek level to the top of the mapped veins. They do not take into account the extension of the veins to any depth except for the North-Soult Vein (100 foot of dept) and the Placer Deposit (average of 15 foot of dept). Vein widths presented here and Average Grade are below those identified on the surface or during exploration to account for lower values found on the extreme sides of the veins.

        * North-Soulth Vein contains Platinum Group Minerals (PGMs) with Palladium the most abundant mineral. Reserves noted in this table are in ouncers of Palladium at $550 per ounce.

        Short Path to Production
        • TCEI has now formed a JV resulting in the creation of EON Discovery to expeditiously advance Treasure Canyon into a producing mine.
        • It is estimated that it will take just two weeks to clear the collapsed tunnel while widening it for modern machinery and supporting it with steel and concrete. This can be accomplished with minimal capex and can start immediately upon machinery arrival on-site.
        • Small Miner Waiver for claims requires claim holders to do annual assessment work which will include testing the ore that comes out of the mine. Approval for Phase 1 of the Plan of Operations will allow full scale mining of 5-10 tons per day.
        • Placer mining also to be conducted early in the development of the mine to generate operational cash flow
        • Ore to be processed locally via gravity separation method (optimal method for collecting different metals)
        • Plan is processing 5 tons of ore per day (TPD), increasing to 50 TPD
        • Expected yield of 0.25 –0.50 ounces of gold per ton (7.08 g/t –14.16 g/t Au), imputing a total of approximately 37.5 –75 ounces of gold per month, or $67,500 - $135,000 per month at $1,800/ounce gold.
        Additional Exploration Work
        • Initial exploration work: Helicopter -based VTEM (versatile time-domain electromagnetic) survey.
        • Optimalgeophysical survey for rugged terrain.
        • Detects gold-bearing zones down to 2,130 feet below surface.
        • Pinpoint drilling locations and target drill depths.
        • Evaluate potential for extension of known veins to the west, northwest and northeast.
        • A minimum of 5 core holes planned for first drilling program, including the high potential prospect area at the intersection of the Otto and Ada veins.
