Some of the important risks and uncertainties that could affect forward-looking statements are described further under the section heading "Item 2. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" of this Quarterly Report and "Item 1A. Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended August 31, 2018, filed with the SEC on December 14, 2018. Although we have attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in forward-looking statements, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as anticipated, estimated or intended. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, believed, estimated or expected. We caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Except as required by law, we disclaim any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statements or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events. We qualify all the forward-looking statements contained in this Quarterly Report by the foregoing cautionary statements.



Overview


We are a mining company engaged in the business of the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. We currently hold two eleven-year leases with the GLO, executed in September 2011 and November 2011, respectively, to explore and develop a 950 acre rare earths project located in Hudspeth County, Texas, known as the Round Top Project. We also have prospecting permits covering 9,345 acres adjacent to the Round Top Project. Our principal focus in conjunction with our joint venture partner, USA Rare Earth, is on developing a metallurgical process to concentrate or otherwise extract the metals from the Round Top Project's rhyolite, and to conduct additional engineering, design, geotechnical work and permitting necessary for a bankable feasibility study. We currently have limited operations and have not established that any of our projects or properties contain any Proven or Probable Reserves under Guide 7.

Rare earth elements are a group of chemically similar elements that usually are found together in nature - they are referred to as the "lanthanide series." These individual elements have a variety of characteristics that are critical in a wide range of technologies, products, and applications and are critical inputs in existing and emerging applications. Without these elements, multiple high-tech technologies would not be possible. These technologies include:



?Cell phones,


?Computer and television screens,



?Battery operated vehicles,


?Clean energy technologies, such as hybrid and electric vehicles and wind power turbines,

?Fiber optics, lasers and hard disk drives,

?Numerous defense applications, such as guidance and control systems and global positioning systems,

?Advanced water treatment technology for use in industrial, military and

?Outdoor recreation applications

Because of these applications, global demand for REE is projected to steadily increase due to continuing growth in existing applications and increased innovation and development of new end uses. Interest in developing resources domestically has become a strategic necessity as there is limited production of these elements outside of China. Our ability to raise additional funds in order to complete our plan of exploration and, if warranted, development at the Round Top Project may be impacted by future prices for REEs.

As discussed in the filing of our Form 10-K dated August 31, 2019, our Joint Venture partner, USA Rare Earth is currently funding and engaging in the advancement of the Round Top Project, towards obtaining a definitive banking feasibility study per its agreement. Our financial obligation is currently for the Company's general and administrative expenses.

Since we are currently in the exploration stage with our Joint Venture partner, we currently do not have any producing properties and consequently, we have no current operating income or cash flow and have not generated any revenues. Further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and practical feasibility of any of our properties is determined.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of November 30, 2019, our accumulated deficit was approximately $37.8 million and our cash position was approximately $1.3 million. We had a working capital surplus of approximately $308,000. We, nor our joint venture partner, have not commenced commercial production on any of our mineral properties. We have no revenues from operations and anticipate we will have no operating revenues until we place one or more of our properties into production. All properties are in the exploration stage.

Other than the financial commitment with USA Rare Earth to fund operations to earn a 70% interest in the Round Top Project, we currently do not have funds to pursue exploration or development work on the Round Top Project, which means that we will be required to raise additional capital on best efforts terms if USA Rare Earth ceases funding, or find alternative means to finance the Round Top Project continued exploration activities, if warranted. Subsequent to the funding of the USA Rare Earth amount, we will need to raise a significant amount of additional capital to exploit the Round Top Project. Failure to obtain required and sufficient financing may result in the (i) delay or indefinite postponement of exploration and, if warranted, development or production in the Round Top Project and/or (ii) curtailment or cessation of our operations. This includes our leases over claims covering the Round Top Project. We cannot be certain that additional capital or other types of financing will be available if needed or that, if available, the terms of such financing will be favorable or acceptable to us. Our ability to arrange additional financing in the future is dependent upon third parties. Failure of obtaining the required capital will result in the curtailment or cessation of our business operations.

                                       16

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As of January 14, 2020, we have warrants outstanding to purchase an aggregate of 12,694,643 shares of Company common stock held by investors at exercise prices between $.35 per share and $.50 per share, all of which expire in December 2020. Of these securities: (i) warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,595,000 shares of Company common stock were privately placed and are exercisable for cash at $.35 per share and there is no effective resale registration statement registering the resale of the underlying shares of common stock upon exercise of these warrants; and (ii) Class A warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2,998,868 shares of Company common stock at an exercise price of $0.35 per share and Class B warrants to purchase an aggregate of 3,100,775 shares of Company common stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share were issued pursuant to a registration statement and as there is no effective registration statement registering the issuance of the shares of Company common stock upon exercise of the Class A warrants and Class B warrants, holders may exercise for cash if an exemption is available from the registration requirements or on a net exercise basis, with the Company having a redemption right as set forth in the indenture.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

For the three months ended November 30, 2019 and 2018, we have off-balance sheet arrangements for annual payments in relation to the mineral leases as disclosed in Note 2 of the unaudited financial statements.



Critical Accounting Estimates


Management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations is based on our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. Preparation of financial statements requires management to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, costs and expenses, and the related disclosures of contingencies. Management bases its estimates on various assumptions and historical experience, which are believed to be reasonable; however, due to the inherent nature of estimates, actual results may differ significantly due to changed conditions or assumptions. On a regular basis, management reviews the accounting policies, assumptions, estimates and judgments to ensure that our financial statements are fairly presented in accordance with GAAP. However, because future events and their effects cannot be determined with certainty, actual results could differ from our assumptions and estimates, and such differences could be material. Management believes that the following critical accounting estimates and judgments have a significant impact on our financial statements; Valuation of options granted to Directors, Officers and consultants using the Black-Scholes model.
