-- Activities related to the International Arbitration action against the
Government of Mongolia accelerated during the third quarter with the
formal constitution of the presiding Tribunal on May 9, 2011. A first
procedural hearing was held on June 21, 2011. The second hearing is
scheduled for September 19, 2011 to assess whether the action should be
split into a jurisdictional component and a merit component or continue
with a single combined jurisdictional/merit component.
-- The hearing on Khan's motion in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to
dispense with or order substitute service in respect of its lawsuit
against ARMZ was delayed by the court to allow ARMZ to cross-examine
Khan's counsel. This took place in July and a new court date of
September 7, 2011 has now been set to hear Khan's original motion.
-- Following the earthquake/tsunami in Japan, the share prices of most
uranium companies has declined. As a result, Khan's investment in
Macusani Yellowcake Inc. declined to $3,028,000 compared to the cost
base for the investment of $4,339,000. With share prices for uranium
companies now recovering and with Macusani's drill program in Peru
having recommenced, Khan's investment in Macusani is expected to recover
from the current depressed level.
