Aegean is an exploration company focused on identifying and acquiring mineral
properties of merit in Turkey. Turkey is the largest gold producer in Europe,
with gold production of approximately 25
million tonnes in 2011, roughly 4 times
the production of 2nd place Sweden, which sits at 6.5 million tonnes.
The company currently has three highly prospective gold and copper projects
located in areas of excellent infrastructure along the prolific Tethyan porphyry
belt from western to northeastern Turkey. Aegean's Ergama and Kizildam
Properties, located at the edge of the Kazdag mountain range, are being advanced
through an umbrella agreement with Teck Madencilik. The company's primary focus
is on the Ergama Project.
The Ergame property has had previous surface sampling, mapping and drilling by
companies including Newmont, prior to Aegean signing an option agreement with
Teck in 2011. Rock sampling, one of which returned 16.5 grams per tonne gold,
supports the possibility of higher grade gold mineralization along structures.

Report which is available on www.sedar.com.
The company's Hot Property, located in the Artvin province, has a history going
back to the 19th century, when the historical mine was operated by the Russians.
The property indicates signs of hosting VMS gold-copper deposits with stringer
zones, where over 7 kilometres strike length of outstanding gold and copper
values have been found at surface.
The shares have not yet traded, but are showing a bid of $0.15, the price of the
IPO, and with approximately 29.8 million shares outstanding, the company has an
initial capitalization of $4.5 million. The company has approximately $1.8
million in its treasury.
