Annual Report




The following Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operation ("MD&A") is intended to help the reader understand our financial condition. MD&A is provided as a supplement to, and should be read in conjunction with, our financial statements and the accompanying integral notes ("Notes") thereto. The following statements may be forward-looking in nature and actual results may differ materially.


Plan of Operation:


FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS: The following discussion may contain forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Factors that could cause actual results to differ materially include the following: inability to locate property with mineralization, lack of financing for exploration efforts, competition to acquire mining properties; risks inherent in the mining industry, and risk factors that are listed in the Company's reports and registration statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


The Company maintains a corporate office in Boise, Idaho. This is the primary work area for the South Mountain Project and is utilized primarily by Pete Parsley and Eric Jones. Jim Collord has been working from a temporary residence in Boise Idaho at no additional charge to the Company. He will continue to work from his home office in Elko, Nevada as well as in the Boise office as the exploration program at South Mountain continues.


The financial condition of the Company was positive during 2010 and the metals commodity markets were favorable during most of the year. The Company underwent a reduced budget program during the first part of the year due while applying for a dual listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange - Venture Exchange ("TSX-V").


The Company received their listing on the TSX-V in September, and was successful in raising sufficient capital to conduct their Phase 1 drilling program on the South Mountain Project. Operational focus was on defining the extent and quality of the gold-bearing intrusive breccia zone through additional rock chip and soil sampling, and mapping. The work on South Mountain was enhanced through the field work conducted previously by Kinross Gold Corp., and through valuable field work conducted by Newmont Mining. The results of this work further defined the gold mineralogy, which will aid in the exploration drilling planned in 2011.
In the wake of this field work, additional State land leases were applied for by the Company in 2010.


The Company's plan of operation for the next twelve months, subject to funding, and the availability of contractors, is as follows:



Continue the advanced exploration and pre-development program for the South Mountain Project. This work may include the following:



Initiate up to 10,000 feet of core drilling from the surface to better define the mineralization and to intercept the down-dip extensions of the Texas, DMEA-2, and Laxey ore zones.



Complete geophysical work on the Intrusive Breccia target. This will consist of an extensive helicopter draped aeromagnetic survey plus resistivity and IP work and will help define specific targets within and peripheral to the mineralized intrusive complex.



Table of Contents



Conduct reverse circulation and core drilling on the Intrusive Breccia target once the geophysics have been completed and the targets have been defined.



Consider further rehabilitation of the Sonneman workings near the Texas ore zone will be initiated so that underground sampling and mapping can be completed.



Continue the baseline environmental work.



Continue to work with potential joint venture or capital partners to advance the project into the next phase of exploration and pre-production goals.


Work on the other five properties controlled by the Company will continue in 2011, although South Mountain will still remain the focus of our efforts. At the Trout Creek Project, the following is planned:



Complete negotiations with additional mineral rights holders in the target area.



Continue geophysical interpretation of the valley area, and conduct additional ground gravity surveys to supplement currently available data.



Define potential drill targets and develop a program for late 2011 or the 2012 field season.


The CAS Prospect will be evaluated when field conditions allow and a decision to drop or move ahead with the project will be made by the end of July, 2011.


Reconnaissance of favorable areas and review of submittals will continue.


Potential joint venture partners will be solicited on some of the properties in Nevada and Arizona.


Results of Operations:


The Company had no revenues and no production for 2010 or 2009. Total expenses for 2010 more than doubled from the prior year to $1.3 million, up 110% from 2009 total expenses of $617,000. The increase in total expenses is primarily the result of exploration activities under taken during the year. Exploration expense for the year end 2010 was $516,000 an increase of $417,000 over 2009 exploration expense of $99,000 as a result of the drilling program completed during the year at the Company's South Mountain Property. Legal and accounting fees for 2010 increased $90,000 to $194,000, a 90% increase over 2009 legal and accounting expenses of $104,000, which was driven by the Company's listing application on the TSX-V in Canada. 2010 management and administrative increased $171,000, or 46%, to $545,000 compared to 2009 expense of $374,000. The increase was a combination of expenses incurred related to the Company's capital raising efforts and the reinstatement of salaries for executive officers.


Liquidity and Capital Resources:


The audit opinion and Notes that accompany our consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010, disclose a 'going concern' qualification to our ability to continue in business. The consolidated financial statements for the period then ended have been prepared under the assumption that we will continue as a going concern. Such assumption contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As shown in the consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009, we incurred losses and negative cash flows from operating activities for the year then ended, and at December 31, 2010, did not have sufficient cash reserves to cover normal operating expenditures for the following 12 months. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.


Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet our obligations on a timely basis, to obtain additional financing as may be required, or ultimately to attain

profitability. Potential sources of cash, or relief of demand for cash, include additional external debt, the sale of shares of our stock or alternative methods such as mergers or sale of our assets. No assurances can be given, however, that we will be able to obtain any of these potential sources of cash. We currently require additional cash funding from outside sources to sustain existing operations and to meet current obligations and ongoing capital requirements.


Our plans for the long term continuation as a going concern include financing our future operations through sales of our common stock and/or debt and the eventual profitable exploitation of our mining properties. Our plans may also, at some future point, include the formation of mining joint ventures with senior mining company partners on specific mineral properties whereby the joint venture partner would provide the necessary financing in return for equity in the property.


While the Company does not currently have cash sufficient to support the currently planned aggressive exploration work at South Mountain, we believe that the survivability of Thunder Mountain Gold can be assured by the following:



At December 31, 2010, we had $298,232 cash in our bank accounts.



Management and the Board have not undertaken plans or commitments that exceed the cash available to the Company. We do not include in this consideration any additional investment funds mentioned below. Management is committed to manage expenses of all types so as to not exceed the on-hand cash resources of the Company at any point in time, now or in the future.


We firmly believe we can outlast the current disruptions in the investment markets and continue to attract investment dollars in coming months and years.
The Company will also consider other sources of funding, including potential mergers or farm-out of some of its exploration properties.


For the year ended December 31, 2010, net cash used for operating activities was $1,127,142, consisting of our 2010 net operating loss reduced by non-cash expenses and net cash provided by changes in current assets and current liabilities. Cash used in investing activities for 2010 totaled $10,900 used to purchase and maintain mining claims, compared to cash of $29,530 used in 2009 to purchase and maintain mining claims and equipment.


Our future liquidity and capital requirements will depend on many factors, including timing, cost and progress of our exploration efforts, our evaluation of, and decisions with respect to, our strategic alternatives, and costs associated with the regulatory approvals. If it turns out that we do not have enough money to complete our exploration programs, we will try to raise additional funds from a second public offering, a private placement, mergers, farm-outs or loans.


We know that additional financing will be required in the future to fund our planned operations. We do not know whether additional financing will be available when needed or on acceptable terms, if at all. If we are unable to raise additional financing when necessary, we may have to delay our exploration efforts or any property acquisitions or be forced to cease operations. Collaborative arrangements may require us to relinquish our rights to certain of our mining claims.


Private Placement


On September 24, 2010 (the "Closing Date") the Company completed a private placement offering for the sale of 6,130,271 Units with proceeds of $995,737, net of $188,349 in deferred financing costs. The subscription agreements were denominated in Canadian dollars (Cdn$) at a price of Cdn $0.20 per Unit. Each Unit was comprised of one share of the Company's common stock (a "Common Share") and one share purchase warrant (a "Warrant"). Each Warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional share of the Company's common stock for a three year period at staggered prices as follows: CDN$0.20 per share at any time until one year from the Closing Date; Cdn$0.25 per share from one year until two years from the Closing Date; and Cdn$0.30 per share from two years until three years from the Closing Date. If the Company's common stock trades at a closing price greater than Cdn$0.50 per share for 20 consecutive trading days after six months from the Closing

Date, the Company can accelerate the expiration of the Warrants by giving notice to the holders and in such case the Warrants will expire on the 30th day after the Company provides notice to the holders of the Warrants


On May 10, 2010, the Company issued 1.25 million Units at $0.20 per Unit in a private placement for net proceeds of $250,000. Each Unit consisted of one share of common stock and one Series A common stock purchase warrant. Each Series A warrant is exercisable at $0.20 for one-half Series B common stock purchase warrant. Each whole Series B warrant would be exercisable into one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.75 per share. The warrants are callable by the Company in the event that the Company's stock trades above $0.25 in the case of the Series A warrants, and above $0.94 for the Series B warrants.


On August 7, 2009, the Company closed a private offering of securities solely to accredited investors. The offering consisted of 380,000 Units priced at $0.20 each. Each Unit consisted of a share of common stock, $0.001 par value, and a warrant to purchase common stock for $0.30 per share. As a result of completion of the offering, a total of 380,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value, and warrants to acquire 380,000 shares of common stock were issued. Included in the 380,000 units issued, were 5,000 units issued for services valued at $1,000.
There were no registration rights granted in connection with the offering. No Placement Agent was used, and no commissions were paid.


On August 10, 2009 the Board unanimously approved a resolution authorizing the re-pricing of warrants, including those issued in the August 7, 2009 private placement, originally exercisable at $0.30 or $0.40 per share, to an exercise price of $0.13 per share which was subsequently raised to $0.15 per share, with such re-pricing valid until November 23, 2009. As a result of completion of the offering, a total of 3,020,000 warrants were exercised for a like number of shares of common stock, $0.001 par value. Commissions of $23,250 were paid to a placement agent, resulting in net cash proceeds of $429,750 to the Company. Additionally, 100,000 shares were issued for warrants with an exercise price of $0.05 per share, for net cash proceeds of $5,000. The net cash proceeds from the exercise of warrants were $434,750. Finally, 30,000 shares were issued to an officer of the Company for warrants exercised at $0.15 in exchange for a reduction of $4,500 in a loan that the officer had previously extended to the Company. There were no registration rights granted in connection with any of these shares. No other commissions were paid, and a total of $450 in Blue Sky fees were paid to the states of Idaho, California and Washington.


The offering and the shares issued for services and option exercises are believed exempt from registration pursuant to the exemption for transactions by an issuer not involving any public offering under Section 4(2) the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The securities offered, and to be sold and issued in connection with the private placement have not been registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission or an applicable exemption from registration requirements.


Subsequent Events




Off Balance-Sheet Arrangements:


During the 12 months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, the Company had no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company's financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.


Contractual Obligations


During 2008, two lease arrangements were made with land owners that own land parcels adjacent to the Company's South Mountain patented and unpatented mining claims. The leases both were for a seven-year period, with options to renew, with annual payments (based on $20 per acre) listed in the following table. The leases have no work requirements.

Amounts shown are for the lease periods years 3 through 7, a total of 4 years that remain after 2010, the second year of the lease period.




The Lowry lease has an early buy-out provision for 50% of the remaining amounts owed in the event the Company desires to drop the lease prior to the end of the first seven-year period.


Critical Accounting Policies


We have identified our critical accounting policies, the application of which may materially affect the financial statements, either because of the significance of the financials statement item to which they relate, or because they require management's judgment in making estimates and assumptions in measuring, at a specific point in time, events which will be settled in the future. The critical accounting policies, judgments and estimates which management believes have the most significant effect on the financial statements are set forth below:




Estimates. Our management routinely makes judgments and estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. As the number of variables and assumptions affecting the future resolution of the uncertainties increase, these judgments become even more subjective and complex. Although we believe that our estimates and assumptions are reasonable, actual results may differ significantly from these estimates. Changes in estimates and assumptions based upon actual results may have a material impact on our results of operation and/or financial condition.




Stock-based Compensation. The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, "Compensation - Stock Compensation" using the fair value method. All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.




Income Taxes. We have current income tax assets recorded in our financial statements that are based on our estimates relating to federal and state income tax benefits. Our judgments regarding federal and state income tax rates, items that may or may not be deductible for income tax purposes and income tax regulations themselves are critical to the Company's financial statement income tax items.


Adopted Accounting Pronouncements


In January 2010, the ASC guidance for fair value measurements was updated to require additional disclosures related to movements of assets among Levels 1 and 2 of the three-tier fair value hierarchy. Also, a reconciliation of purchases, sales, issuance, and settlements of anything valued with a Level 3 method is required. Disclosure regarding fair value measurements for each class of assets and liabilities will be required. The updated guidance was adopted by the Company in its quarter ended March 31, 2010, except for disclosures about the activity in Level 3 fair value measurements which are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. Adoption of this updated guidance did not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
