Item 1.   Business
 
Company Overview
 
We are an exploration stage company that intends to engage in the exploration of mineral properties.  We have acquired a mineral claim that we refer to as the Appleton #2 mineral claim. Exploration of this mineral claim is required before a final determination as to its viability can be made. 
 
The property is located 17 km northwest of Gander in northeastern Newfoundland.  The property lies north of the Trans Canada Highway, approximately 9 km north of the Salmon Pond access road, and west of the Gander River.  It comprises 8 claim blocks totaling 200 hectares or approximately 494 acres approximately centered at latitude 490 3’ 9" North, longitude 540 48’ 24" West (UTM Zone 21, 660250 Easting - 5435400 Northing).  A legal survey of the property has not been conducted. 
 
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador owns the land covered by the Appleton #2 mineral claim. Currently, we are not aware of any native land claims that might affect the title to the mineral claim or to Newfoundland and Labrador’s title of the property. Although we are unaware of any situation that would threaten this claim, it is possible that a native land claim could be made in the future. The federal and provincial government policy at this time is to consult with all potentially affected native bands and other stakeholders in the area of any potential commercial production. If we should encounter a situation where a native person or group claims and interest in this claim, we may choose to provide compensation to the affected party in order to continue with our exploration work, or if such an option is not available, we may have to relinquish any interest that we hold in this claim.
 
Acquisition of the Appleton #2 mineral claim. 
 
We acquired a 100% interest in the Appleton #2 mineral claim located in northeastern Newfoundland Island, Canada.    Our ownership in the Appleton #2 claim was electronically staked and recorded under the electronic mineral claim staking and recording procedures of the Online Mineral Claims Staking System administered by the Department of Natural Resources, Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.  A party is able to stake and record an interest in a particular mineral claim if no other party has an interest in the said claim that is in good standing and on record.  There is no formal agreement between us and/or our subsidiary and the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador.
 
The Appleton #2 claim is administered under the Mineral Act of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Our interest in the Appleton #2 mineral claim will continue for up to twenty years provided that the minimum required expenditures toward exploration work on the claim are made in compliance with the Act.  The required amount of expenditures toward exploration work is set by the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and can be altered in its sole discretion.  Currently, the amount required to be expended annually for exploration work within the first year that the mineral claim is acquired is $200 per claim.  The required expenditures per claim increase gradually each year up to a maximum of $1,200 per claim for the sixteenth year and beyond.  Within 60 days following the anniversary date of the claim, an assessment report on the work performed must be submitted to the Mineral Claims Recorder.  Every five years, renewal fee of between $25 and $100 per claim is also required.
 
We selected the Appleton #2 mineral property based upon an independent geological report which was commissioned from Richard A. Jeanne, a Consulting Geologist. Mr. Jeanne recommended an exploration program on this claim which will cost us approximately $20,740.
 

Description and Location of the Appleton #2 mineral claim
 
The Appleton #2 property is located on NTS map sheet 02E/02, 17 km northwest of Gander in northeastern Newfoundland.  It comprises 8 claim blocks totaling 200 hectares or approximately 494 acres approximately centered at latitude 490 3’ 9" North, longitude 540 48’ 24" West (UTM Zone 21, 660250 Easting - 5435400 Northing).  A legal survey of the property has not been conducted. 
 
The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador owns the land covered by the Appleton #2 mineral claim. Currently, we are not aware of any native land claims that might affect the title to the mineral claim or to Newfoundland and Labrador’s title of the property. Although we are unaware of any situation that would threaten this claim, it is possible that a native land claim could be made in the future. The federal and provincial government policy at this time is to consult with all potentially affected native bands and other stakeholders in the area of any potential commercial production. If we should encounter a situation where a native person or group claims and interest in this claim, we may choose to provide compensation to the affected party in order to continue with our exploration work, or if such an option is not available, we may have to relinquish any interest that we hold in this claim.
 
Geological Exploration Program in General
 
We have obtained an independent Geological Report and have acquired a 100% ownership interest in the Appleton #2 mineral claim. Richard A. Jeanne, Consulting Geologist, has prepared this Geological Report and reviewed all available exploration data completed on this mineral claim.
 
The property that is the subject of the Appleton #2 mineral claim is undeveloped and does not contain any open-pit or underground mines which can be rehabilitated. There is no commercial production plant or equipment located on the property that is the subject of the mineral claim. Currently, there is no power supply to the mineral claims. We have not yet commenced the field work phase of our initial exploration program.   Exploration is currently in the planning stages.  Our exploration program is exploratory in nature and there is no assurance that mineral reserves will be found.  The details of the Geological Report are provided below.
 
Appleton #2 Mineral Claim Geological Report, Dated February 12, 2008
 
A primary purpose of the geological report is to review information, if any, from the previous exploration of the mineral claims and to recommend exploration procedures to establish the feasibility of commercial production project on the mineral claims.  The summary report lists results of the history of the exploration of the mineral claims, the regional and local geology of the mineral claims and the mineralization and the geological formations identified as a result of the prior exploration.  The summary report also gave conclusions regarding potential mineralization of the mineral claims and recommended a further geological exploration program.
 
Exploration Potential of the Appleton #2 Mineral Claim
 
Previous sampling by the Geological Survey of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador yielded gold and arsenic anomalies on ground currently covered by the Appleton # 2 claims.  The claims are underlain by rocks of similar age and lithology as those in which gold anomalies are currently being developed by Paragon Minerals Corp. on their nearby Appleton Linear and JBP claims.
 

The gold anomaly on the Appleton # 2 reportedly was discovered by Mr. Tom Lush in 1999.  He submitted an assessment report (unpublished) in the year 2000 that was cited in the MODS report on the occurrence published by the Geological Survey of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Subsequent sampling by the Geological Survey yielded two anomalous values.  One sample returned an assay value of 4959 ppb (0.145 opt) Au and another, 64 ppm arsenic (As).
 
The area is recognized as having potential for extensive mineralization.  Beginning in the 1980's, extensive surveys of the region were conducted by Noranda, Gander River Minerals, Falconbridge, Virginia Holdings, Noront Resources and Newfoundland Resources and Mining.  Currently, Paragon Minerals Corporation is active in the area with a number of projects under evaluation.
 
The region is underlain by rocks of the Gander and Dunnage tectonostratigraphic zones.  The Gander zone, southeast of the Appleton # 2, is represented by metasedimentary conglomerate, sandstone and siltstone.  The Gander zone is structurally overlain by rocks of the Dunnage zone.  These include the Gander River Complex, a narrow belt of mafic and ultramafic rocks and the Davidsville Group, siliclastic sediments deposited in relatively shallow water.  The Appleton # 2 property is located within the Davidsville Group of rocks.  West of the Davidsville group is a suite of siliclastic rocks of deeper water origin.
 
Southwest of the Appleton # 2 is a large intrusive complex that has been proposed as the heat source that drove the mineralizing events in the area.  The complex consists of two major rock types, an older mafic suite and a younger granitoid suite.  Most of the mineralization in the region is associated with quartz veins which are commonly associated with gratitoid rocks, however, some of the mineralization is clearly younger than the intrusive complex.  This suggests that another, unrecognized, heat source may have contributed to mineralization in the area.
 
Access to the property can be gained via the Salmon Pond access road and forestry roads about 9 km (5.6 miles) north of Trans-Canada Highway 1.  Groceries and general supplies and services such as car rentals, banking, restaurants and lodging are available in the town of Gander, about an hour's drive from the property.  Gander's population is about 10,000, but the town provides services to surrounding communities whose total population approaches 90,000.  The town hosts an international airport that, historically, was a refueling stop for transatlantic flights.
 
The region receives abundant snowfall during the winter months, making geological exploration and other related activities impractical during this time.  The climate during the remainder of the year is moderate.  The topography and drainages slope eastward toward the Gander River.  Forest cover includes mixed spruce, balsam fir and birch.  Low wet areas contain prevalent alder thickets. The claim is underlain by terrain of modest slopes and relief between the approximate elevations of 76 m (250 ft) and 107 m (350 ft) above sea level. 
 
No visit to the property has yet been made by us or our consulting geologists.
 

Recommendations From Our Consulting Geologist
 
In order to evaluate the exploration potential of the Appleton #2 claim, our consulting geologist has recommended on site surface reconnaissance, mapping, sampling, and trenching to be followed by geochemical analyses of the samples to be taken.  The primary goal of the exploration program is to identify sites for additional gold exploration.

Competition
 
The mineral exploration industry, in general, is intensely competitive and even if commercial quantities of reserves are discovered, a ready market may not exist for the sale of the reserves.
 
Most companies operating in this industry are more established and have greater resources to engage in the production of mineral claims.  We were incorporated on August 16, 2007 and our operations are not well-established.  Our resources at the present time are limited.  We may exhaust all of our resources and be unable to complete full exploration of the Appleton #2 mineral claim.  There is also significant competition to retain qualified personnel to assist in conducting mineral exploration activities.   If a commercially viable deposit is found to exist and we are unable to retain additional qualified personnel, we may be unable to enter into production and achieve profitable operations.  These factors set forth above could inhibit our ability to compete with other companies in the industry and entered into production of the mineral claim if a commercial viable deposit is found to exist.  
 
Numerous factors beyond our control may affect the marketability of any substances discovered.  These factors include market fluctuations, the proximity and capacity of natural resource markets and processing equipment, government regulations, including regulations relating to prices, taxes, royalties, land tenure, land use, importing and exporting of minerals and environmental protection.  The exact effect of these factors cannot be accurately predicted, but the combination of these factors may result our not receiving an adequate return on invested capital.
 
 
Compliance with Government Regulation
 
The main agency that governs the exploration of minerals in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador is the Department of Natural Resources.
 
The Department of Natural Resources manages the development of Newfoundland and Labrador’s mineral resources, and implements policies and programs respecting their development while protecting the environment. In addition, the Department regulates and inspects the exploration and mineral production industries in Newfoundland and Labrador to protect workers, the public and the environment.
 
The material legislation applicable to Western Ridge Minerals, Inc. is the Mineral Act of Newfoundland and Labrador. Any person who intends to conduct an exploration program on a staked or licensed area must submit prior notice with a detailed description of the activity to the Department of Natural Resources. An exploration program that may result in major ground disturbance or disruption to wildlife or wildlife habitat must have an Exploration Approval from the department before the activity can commence.
 
We will also have to sustain the cost of reclamation and environmental remediation for all exploration work undertaken.  Both reclamation and environmental remediation refer to putting disturbed ground back as close to its original state as possible.  Other potential pollution or damage must be cleaned-up and renewed along standard guidelines outlined in the usual permits. Reclamation is the process of bringing the land back to its natural state after completion of exploration activities.  Environmental remediation refers to the physical activity of taking steps to remediate, or remedy any environmental damage caused such as refilling trenches after sampling or cleaning up fuel spills.  Our initial exploration program does not require any reclamation or remediation because of minimal disturbance to the ground.  The amount of these costs is not known at this time because we do not know the extent of the exploration program we will undertake, beyond completion of the recommended exploration phase described above, or if we will enter into production on the property. Because there is presently no information on the size, tenor, or quality of any resource or reserve at this time, it is impossible to assess the impact of any capital expenditures on our earnings or competitive position in the event a potentially-economic deposit is discovered.

Penny Stock
 
The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a market 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, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker's or dealer's duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties or other requirements of the securities laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.
 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) a monthly account statement showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account.
 
In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement as to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.
 
These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity for our common stock. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling our securities.
 
Holders of Our Common Stock
 
As of May 17, 2010, we had 5,496,400   shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, held by 34 shareholders of record.
 
Dividends
 
There are no restrictions in our articles of incorporation or bylaws that prevent us from declaring dividends.  The Nevada Revised Statutes, however, do prohibit us from declaring dividends where after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:
 
1. we would not be able to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business, or;
 
2. our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy the rights of shareholders who have preferential rights superior to those receiving the distribution.
 
We have not declared any dividends and we do not plan to declare any dividends in the foreseeable future.
 
Securities Authorized for Issuance under Equity Compensation Plans
 
We have not adopted any equity compensation or incentive plans at this time.
 
Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities
 
None.
 

Item 7.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations
 
Forward-Looking Statements
 
Certain statements, other than purely historical information, including estimates, projections, statements relating to our business plans, objectives, and expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based, are “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believes,” “project,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “intends,” “strategy,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. We intend such forward-looking statements to be covered by the safe-harbor provisions for forward-looking statements contained in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, and are including this statement for purposes of complying with those safe-harbor provisions. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse affect on our operations and future prospects on a consolidated basis include, but are not limited to: changes in economic conditions, legislative/regulatory changes, availability of capital, interest rates, competition, and generally accepted accounting principles. These risks and uncertainties should also be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements. We undertake no obligation to update or revise publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Further information concerning our business, including additional factors that could materially affect our financial results, is included herein and in our other filings with the SEC.
 
Plan of Operations
 
Our business plan is to proceed with the exploration of the Appleton #2 mineral claim to determine whether there are commercially exploitable reserves of gold or other metals.  We intend to proceed with the initial exploration program as recommended by our consulting geologist. The recommended geological program will cost a total of approximately $20,740. We had $6,514 in cash as of March 31, 2010.  Our plan of operations is to complete the recommended exploration program on the Appleton #2 mineral claim. 
 
Phase I would consist of on-site surface reconnaissance, mapping, sampling, and geochemical analyses.   This phase of the program will cost approximately $7,450.  Phase II would entail on-site trenching, mapping, sampling, and trench site identification followed by geochemical analyses of the various samples gathered.  The Phase II program will cost approximately $13,290.
 
We have not retained a geologist to conduct any of the anticipated exploration work. 
 
Once we receive the analyses of our initial exploration program, our board of directors, in consultation with our consulting geologist will assess whether to proceed with additional mineral exploration programs.  In making this determination to proceed with a further exploration, we will make an assessment as to whether the results of the initial program are sufficiently positive to enable us to proceed.  This assessment will include an evaluation of our cash reserves after the completion of the initial exploration, the price of minerals, and the market for the financing of mineral exploration projects at the time of our assessment.
 
In the event our board of directors, in consultation with our consulting geologist, chooses to conduct further mineral exploration programs beyond the initial program, we will require additional financing.  While we have sufficient funds on hand to cover the bulk of our currently planned exploration costs, we will require additional funding in order to fully complete the recommended program and to undertake further exploration programs on the Appleton #2 mineral claim and to cover all of our anticipated administrative expenses. 
 

In order to cover the administrative expenses associated with our operations, and in the event that additional exploration programs on the Appleton #2 claim are undertaken, we anticipate that additional funding will be required in the form of equity financing from the sale of our common stock and from loans from our director.  We cannot provide investors with any assurance, however, that we will be able to raise sufficient funding from the sale of our common stock to fund all of our anticipated expenses.  We do not have any arrangements in place for any future equity financing.  We believe that outside debt financing will not be an alternative for funding exploration programs on the Appleton #2 property. The risky nature of this enterprise and lack of tangible assets other than our mineral claim places debt financing beyond the credit-worthiness required by most banks or typical investors of corporate debt until such time as an economically viable mine can be demonstrated.
 
In the event the results of our initial exploration program prove not to be sufficiently positive to proceed with further exploration on the Appleton #2 mineral claim, we intend to seek out and acquire interests in North American mineral exploration properties which, in the opinion of our consulting geologist, offer attractive mineral exploration opportunities.  Presently, we have not given any consideration to the acquisition of other exploration properties because we have not yet commenced our initial exploration program and have not received any results. 
 
During this exploration stage Mr. Bastidas, our President, will only be devoting approximately five to ten hours per week of his time to our business.  We do not foresee this limited involvement as negatively impacting our company over the next twelve months as all exploratory work is being performed by outside consultants.  If, however, the demands of our business require more business time of Mr. Bastidas such as raising additional capital or addressing unforeseen issues with regard to our exploration efforts, he is prepared to devote more time to our business. However, he may not be able to devote sufficient time to the management of our business, as and when needed.

In order to evaluate the exploration potential of the Appleton #2 claim, our consulting geologist has recommended on site surface reconnaissance, mapping, sampling, and trenching to be followed by geochemical analyses of the samples to be taken.  The primary goal of the exploration program is to identify sites for additional gold exploration.

While we have not commenced the field work phase of our initial exploration program, we intend to proceed with the initial exploratory work as recommended. Due to continuing difficulties in locating and retaining a geologist to perform the initial exploratory work at an economically viable cost,  we currently do not expect that Phase I will begin until the Summer of 2010, with Phase II to begin in the late Summer or Fall of 2010.  Upon our review of the results, we will assess whether the results are sufficiently positive to warrant additional phases of the exploration program.  We will make the decision to proceed with any further programs based upon our consulting geologist’s review of the results and recommendations.  In order to complete significant additional exploration beyond the currently planned Phase I and Phase II, we will need to raise additional capital. 
 
We do not have plans to purchase any significant equipment or change the number of our employees during the next twelve months.
 
We have no employees other than our president and CEO, Mr. Bastidas. We conduct our business largely through agreements with consultants and other independent third party vendors.
 
Results of Operations for the Years Ended March 31, 2010 and March 31, 2009
 
We have not earned any revenues since the inception of our current business operations.  We are presently in the exploration stage of our business and we can provide no assurance that we will discover commercially exploitable levels of mineral resources on our mineral properties, or if such resources are discovered, that we will enter into commercial production.
 
We incurred operating expenses and net losses in the amount of $50,303 for the year ended March 31, 2010.  By comparison, we incurred operating expenses and net losses in the amount of $13,972 for the year ended March 31, 2009.  We incurred total operating expenses and net losses in the amount of $67,970 for the period from inception on August 16, 2007 through March 31, 20010.  Our losses are attributable to operating expenses together with a lack of any revenues at our current state of development.  We anticipate our operating expenses will increase as we continue with our plan of operations.  The increase will be attributable to continuing with the geological exploration programs for our mineral claim.

As of March 31, 2010, we had current assets in the amount of $6,514, consisting entirely of cash. We had current liabilities of $40,311 as of March 31, 2010. Thus, we had a working capital deficit of $33,797 as of March 31, 2010.
 
We do not anticipate earning revenues until such time that enter into commercial production of our mineral property. We are presently in the exploration stage of our business and we can provide no assurance that we will discover commercially exploitable levels of mineral resources our mineral property, or if such resources are discovered, that we will enter into commercial production.
 

Going Concern
 
We have not attained profitable operations and will be dependent upon obtaining financing to pursue significant exploration activities beyond those currently planned as outlined herein.  For these reasons, our auditors stated in their report that they have substantial doubt we will be able to continue as a going concern. Our ability to raise additional capital through the future issuances of the common stock or other methods is unknown. The obtainment of additional financing, the successful development of our contemplated plan of operations, and our transition, ultimately, to the attainment of profitable operations are necessary for us to continue operations.  For these reasons, our auditors stated in their report that they have substantial doubt we will be able to continue as a going concern.
 
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
As of March 31, 2010, there were no off balance sheet arrangements.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
To the Board of Directors
Western Ridge Minerals, Inc.
Las Vegas, Nevada
 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Western Ridge Minerals, Inc. as of March 31, 2010 and 2009, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the periods then ended and the period from August 16, 2007 (inception) to March 31, 2010.  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).  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 has determined that it 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 includes examining on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  An audit also includes 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, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Western Ridge Minerals, Inc., as of March 31, 2010 and 2009 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the periods then ended and for the period from August 16, 2007 (inception) to March 31, 2010, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that Western Ridge Minerals, Inc., Inc. will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 5 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred losses from operations, has limited working capital, and is in need of additional capital to grow its operations so that it can become profitable.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans with regard to these matters are described in Note 5. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

WESTERN RIDGE MINERALS, INC.
(An Exploration Stage Company)
Notes to Financial Statements
March 31, 2010 and 2009
 
NOTE 1.         GENERAL ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESSES
 
Western Ridge Minerals, (the Company) was incorporated on August 16, 2007 under the laws of the State of Nevada.  The Company was formed to engage in the exploration for and extraction of minerals.
 
NOTE  2.        SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRACTICES
 
Accounting Basis
 
These financial statements are prepared on the accrual basis of accounting in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The Company has adopted a March 31 fiscal year end.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
For the purpose of the statement of cash flows, cash equivalents include all highly liquid investments with maturity of three months or less.
 
Earnings (Loss) per Share
 
The basic earnings (loss) per share are calculated by dividing the Company’s net income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year. The diluted earnings (loss) per share are calculated by dividing the Company’s net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted as of the first of the year for any potentially dilutive debt or equity.  There are no diluted shares outstanding as of March 31, 2010.
 
Dividends
 
The Company has not adopted any policy regarding payment of dividends. No dividends have been paid during the period shown.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company provides for income taxes under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards NO. 109 (ASC 740-10), “Accounting for Income Taxes.” SFAS No. 109 (ASC 740-10) requires the use of an asset and liability approach in accounting for income taxes.
 
SFAS No. 109 requires the reduction of deferred tax assets by a valuation allowance if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  No provision for income taxes is included in the statement due to its immaterial amount, net of the allowance account, based on the likelihood of the Company to utilize the loss carry-forward.

March 31, 2010 and 2009

NOTE 2.         SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRACTICES (CONTINUED)
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of 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 amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Revenue and Cost Recognition
 
The Company has no current source of revenue; therefore the Company has not yet adopted any policy regarding the recognition of revenue or cost.
 
NOTE 3.         INCOME TAXES:    
 
The Company provides for income taxes under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109 (ASC 740-10), Accounting for Income Taxes. SFAS No. 109 (ASC 740-10) requires the use of an asset and liability approach in accounting for income taxes. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recorded based on the differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities and the tax rates in effect when these differences are expected to reverse. The Company’s predecessor operated as entity exempt from Federal and State income taxes.
 
SFAS No. 109 (ASC 740-10) requires the reduction of deferred tax assets by a valuation allowance if, based on the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.
 
The provision for income taxes differs from the amounts which would be provided by applying the statutory federal income tax rate of 39% to the net loss before provision for income taxes for the following reasons:

Notes to Financial Statements
March 31, 2010 and 2009
 
NOTE 3.         INCOME TAXES (CONTINUED)   
 
Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carry forwards of $67,970 for federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations. When a change in ownership occurs, net operating loss carry forwards may be limited as to use in future years.
 
NOTE 4.         STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (DEFICIT)
 
Common Stock
 
On September 5, 2007, the Board of Directors authorized 3,000,000 shares at par value to its founding shareholder for cash of $3,000. 
 
On January 5, 2008, the Company completed an unregistered private offering of 2,415,000 common shares of stock at $0.0075 per share for cash of $18,113.  On January 31, 2008, the Company completed an unregistered private offering of 81,400 common shares of stock at $0.15 per share for cash of $12,210.
 
NOTE  5.         GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in the notes to the financial statements, the Company has no established source of revenue.  This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Without realization of additional capital, it would be unlikely for the Company to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from this uncertainty.
 
The Company’s activities to date have been supported by equity financing.  It has sustained losses in all previous reporting periods with an inception to date loss of $67,970 as of March 31, 2010. 
 
Management may seek funding from its shareholders and other qualified investors to pursue its business plan.  In the alternative, the Company may be amenable to a sale, merger or other acquisition in the event such transaction is deemed by management to be in the best interests of the shareholders. 
 
NOTE 6.  THE EFFECT OF RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS
 
In January 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2010-02, Consolidation (Topic 810):  Accounting and Reporting for Decreases in Ownership of a Subsidiary. This amendment to Topic 810 clarifies, but does not change, the scope of current US GAAP. It clarifies the decrease in ownership provisions of Subtopic 810-10 and removes the potential conflict between guidance in that Subtopic and asset derecognition and gain or loss recognition guidance that may exist in other US GAAP. An entity will be required to follow the amended guidance beginning in the period that it first adopts FAS 160 (now included in Subtopic 810-10). For those entities that have already adopted FAS 160, the amendments are effective at the beginning of the first interim or annual reporting period ending on or after December 15, 2009. The amendments should be applied retrospectively to the first period that an entity adopted FAS 160. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-02 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

Notes to Financial Statements
March 31, 2010 and 2009
 
NOTE 6.  THE EFFECT OF RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS (CONTINUED)
 
In December 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-17, Consolidations (Topic 810): Improvements to Financial Reporting by Enterprises Involved with Variable Interest Entities.  This Accounting Standards Update amends the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for Statement 167. (See FAS 167 effective date below.)
 
In December 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-16, Transfers and Servicing (Topic 860): Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets. This Accounting Standards Update amends the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for Statement 166. (See FAS 166 effective date below)
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-15, Accounting for Own-Share Lending Arrangements in Contemplation of Convertible Debt Issuance or Other Financing. This Accounting Standards Update amends the FASB Accounting Standard Codification for EITF 09-1. (See EITF 09-1 effective date below.)
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-14, Software (Topic 985):  Certain Revenue Arrangements That Include Software Elements. This update changed the accounting model for revenue arrangements that include both tangible products and software elements. Effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2009-14 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-13, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements. This update addressed the accounting for multiple-deliverable arrangements to enable vendors to account for products or services (deliverables) separately rather than a combined unit and will be separated in more circumstances that under existing US GAAP.  This amendment has eliminated that residual method of allocation. Effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010.  Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2009-13 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.
 
In September 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2009-12, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820): Investments in Certain Entities That Calculate Net Asset Value per Share (or Its Equivalent). This update provides amendments to Topic 820 for the fair value measurement of investments in certain entities that calculate net asset value per share (or its equivalent). It is effective for interim and annual periods ending after December 15, 2009. Early application is permitted in financial statements for earlier interim and annual periods that have not been issued. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2009-12 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.

Notes to Financial Statements
March 31, 2010 and 2009
 
NOTE 6.  THE EFFECT OF RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS (CONTINUED)
 
In July 2009, the FASB ratified the consensus reached by EITF (Emerging Issues Task Force) issued EITF No. 09-1, (ASC Topic 470) "Accounting for Own-Share Lending Arrangements in Contemplation of Convertible Debt Issuance" ("EITF 09-1"). The provisions of EITF 09-1, clarifies the accounting treatment and disclosure of share-lending arrangements that are classified as equity in the financial statements of the share lender. An example of a share-lending arrangement is an agreement between the Company (share lender) and an investment bank (share borrower) which allows the investment bank to use the loaned shares to enter into equity derivative contracts with investors. EITF 09-1 is effective for fiscal years that beginning on or after December 15, 2009 and requires retrospective application for all arrangements outstanding as of the beginning of fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2009.  Share-lending arrangements that have been terminated as a result of counterparty default prior to December 15, 2009, but for which the entity has not reached a final settlement as of December 15, 2009 are within the scope. Effective for share-lending arrangements entered into on or after the beginning of the first reporting period that begins on or after June 15, 2009. The Company does not expect the provisions of EITF 09-1 to have a material effect on the financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company.
 
NOTE 7.  SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
In accordance with SFAS 165 (ASC 855-10) Company management reviewed all material events through May 18, 2010, and there are no material subsequent events to report.
 

Item 9.   Changes In and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure
 
On August 6, 2009, Moore & Associates Chartered (the “Former Accountant”) resigned as the Company’s accountant.  On August 25, 2009, the Company’s board of directors approved the resignation.
 
The Former Accountant’s audit reports on the financial statements of the Company for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2009 contained no adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except that the audit reports on the financial statements of the Company for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2009 contained an uncertainty about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
 
During the year ended March 31, 2009, and through the interim period ended June 30, 2009, there were no “disagreements” (as such term is defined in Item 304 of Regulation S-K) with the Former Accountant on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements if not resolved to the satisfaction of the Former Accountant would have caused them to make reference thereto in their reports on the financial statements for such periods.
 
During the year ended March 31, 2009, and through the interim period ended June 30, 2009, there were no “reportable events” (as such term is defined in Item 304 of Regulation S-K).
 
On September 1, 2009, the company’s board of directors appointed Maddox Ungar Silberstein, PLLC as the company’s auditor and independent accountant.
 
During the registrant's two most recent fiscal years, and the subsequent interim periods prior to engaging Maddox Ungar Silberstein, PLLC, the company did not consult Maddox Ungar Silberstein, PLLC regarding either the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the company's financial statements, or any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement or a reportable event.
 
Item 9A(T).  Controls and Procedures
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
The Company’s management, consisting of its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2010. Based upon this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of March 31, 2010, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective in providing reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, are timely recorded, processed, summarized and reported as required by the Exchange Act.
 
Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
The Company’s management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting.  Internal control over financial reporting is a process, including policies and procedures, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external reporting purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.  Based on the results of this assessment, management concluded that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of March 31, 2010 based on such criteria.

Management determined that the material weakness that resulted in controls being ineffective are primarily due to lack of resources and number of employees.  Material weaknesses exist in the segregation of duties required for effective controls and various reconciliation and control procedures not regularly performed due to the lack of staff and resources.

President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Director
 
Set forth below is a brief description of the background and business experience of each of our current executive officers and directors.
 
Marco Bastidas . Mr. Bastidas is our CEO, CFO, President, Secretary, Treasurer and sole director.  Since 2001, Mr. Bastidas has also served as President of Western Translation Services, a company providing translation services throughout North America. From 1994 to 2000 Mr. Bastidas was employed as a representative of Taylor Language Services. Additionally, Mr. Bastidas presently sits on the Board of Directors for Polygenetics International, Inc., a position he has held since February 2007.  Mr. Bastidas  obtained his Bachelors of Commerce (Honors) 4 year degree from the  University of Ottawa in 1990, with a specialization in Marketing and International Business.
 
Directors
 
Our bylaws authorize no less than one (1) director.  We currently have one Director.
 
Term of Office
 
Our Directors are appointed for a one-year term to hold office until the next annual general meeting of our shareholders or until removed from office in accordance with our bylaws.  Our officers are appointed by our board of directors and hold office until removed by the board.
 
Family Relationships
 
There are no family relationships between or among the directors, executive officers or persons nominated or chosen by us to become directors or executive officers.
 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings
 
To  the best of our knowledge, during the past five years, none of the following  occurred  with  respect  to a present or former director, executive officer, or  employee: (1) any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business  of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at  the  time  of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time; (2) any conviction in a criminal  proceeding  or  being subject to a pending criminal proceeding  (excluding  traffic  violations and other minor offenses); (3) being subject  to  any order, judgment or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or  vacated,  of  any  court  of  competent  jurisdiction,  permanently  or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his or her involvement in  any  type of business, securities or banking activities; and (4) being found by  a  court  of  competent  jurisdiction  (in  a  civil action), the SEC or the Commodities  Futures  Trading  Commission  to  have  violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended or vacated.
 
Audit Committee
 
We do not have a separately-designated standing audit committee. The entire Board of Directors performs the functions of an audit committee, but no written charter governs the actions of the Board when performing the functions of what would generally be performed by an audit committee. The Board approves the selection of our independent accountants.
 
Code of Ethics
 
As of March 31, 2010, we had not adopted a Code of Ethics for Financial Executives, which would include our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions.
 
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
Our officers, directors and shareholders owning greater than ten percent of our shares are not required to comply with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 because we do not have a class of securities registered under Section 12 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
 
Item 11.  Executive Compensation

Compensation Discussion and Analysis
 
The Company presently not does have employment agreements with any of its named executive officers and it has not established a system of executive compensation or any fixed policies regarding compensation of executive officers.  Due to financial constraints typical of those faced by a development stage mineral exploration business, the company has not paid any cash and/or stock compensation to its named executive officers.
 
 
Our current named executive officer holds substantial ownership in the Company and is motivated by a strong entrepreneurial interest in developing our operations and potential revenue base to the best of his ability.   As our business and operations expand and mature, we may develop a formal system of compensation designed to attract, retain and motivate talented executives.

As used in this table, "beneficial ownership" means the sole or shared power to vote, or to direct the voting of, a security, or the sole or shared investment power with respect to a security (i.e., the power to dispose of, or to direct the disposition of, a security). In addition, for purposes of this table, a person is deemed, as of any date, to have "beneficial ownership" of any security that such person has the right to acquire within 60 days after such date.
 
The persons named above have full voting and investment power with respect to the shares indicated.  Under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, a person (or group of persons) is deemed to be a "beneficial owner" of a security if he or she, directly or indirectly, has or shares the power to vote or to direct the voting of such security, or the power to dispose of or to direct the disposition of such security.  Accordingly, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same security. A person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any security, which that person has the right to acquire within 60 days, such as options or warrants to purchase our common stock.
 

Item 13.   Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence
 
None of the following parties has, since our date of incorporation, had any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction with us or in any presently proposed transaction that has or will materially affect us:
 
 
·          Any of our directors or officers;
 
·          Any person proposed as a nominee for election as a director;
 
·          Any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 10% of the voting rights attached to our outstanding shares of common stock;
 
·          Any of our promoters;
 
·          Any relative or spouse of any of the foregoing persons who has the same house address as such person.
