    Investment Highlights

    North Springs Resources Corp. (NSRS) climbed as high as $1.20 Friday, a fresh 52-week high, following the release of the third in a series of four anticipated videos detailing exploration and drilling at the Company’s 20% owned Goldstar property in Arizona.

    Shares of NSRS have risen 63.1% in the last five days; 138.6% in the last month; and 11,400.0% for the six months to date.

    The new footage of the current exploration program includes extended views of drilling rig operation, the pulling of diamond core drill samples, and initial sample preparation for independent third-party testing. The video also contains an interview conducted at the Goldstar site discussing the measurements of gold bearing quartz veins at surface, interpretation of local geology, and the potential for the quartz veins to continue at depths well below previously expected levels.

    “The detailed description and interpretation goes a long way to justify our increasing excitement over the potential of the Goldstar Property,” said Harry Lappa, president of NSRS. “Most notable were positive comments made during the interview that at least one local producing gold mine encountered this type of gold bearing quartz veinsdown to the 6000 foot level – triple the maximum depth used to figure the previous and updated Goldstar Property potential.”

    The new video is available at NRSR’s Web site:

    The Company on Thursday announced that it has positively re-analyzed the potential reserve estimates for Goldstar made by previous operators. Surface observations and new data collected from the ongoing drill program at Goldstar, along with historic references to the property, comparable mines in the surrounding area, previously available sampling and exploration data pertinent to the Goldstar site, and based on industry standards, indicate that the possible reserve estimate for the property could be as high as 2.77 million tons grading 0.7 oz. gold/ton, or about 1.94 million ounces of gold, the company reported.

    Investors boosted shares in the Nevada-based company last month after it announced the Arizona project. Lappa commented that the Company is confident that the planned exploration work in Goldstar could put NSRS on track to build the next great high-grade gold mine in Arizona.

    In January, the Company also provided an update on its letter of intent to acquire an interest in the Edum Banso Gold Project in Ghana’s $150 billion Ashanti Gold Belt District. NSRS shares set a new 52-week high following the news.

    NSRS closed Friday’s session at $1.15, a gain of $0.19 or 19.8% on the day, with strong volume of 24.04 million shares.


    Financial Summary

    NSRS has not generated any revenue since its inception in 2009.

    The Company incurred operating expenses of $55.93K during the three months ended October 31, 2011, compared with $6.09K in the comparable quarter of the prior year. NSRS attributed the increase to an increase in professional fees of $10.50K relating to legal expenses incurred with respect to changes in management and due diligence with respect to acquisition of mineral properties and $4K for accounting and auditing fees. The Company also incurred salaries of $30.00K to the president and director of the Company, incurred $2.89K in transfer agent and filing fees relating to the stock splits and issuance of shares for the mineral property option and had an increase of $5.04K in general and administrative expense.

    NSRS realized a net loss of $56.84K for the quarter, up from a net loss of $6.09K in the prior-year period.

    On top of operating expenses, the Company recorded interest expense of $915 during the period relating to interest from the $40.00K notes payable received in July 2011 which is unsecured, bears interest at 10% per annum, and is due on demand.

    NSRS had cash of $16 and total assets of $60.59 K at October 31, 2011, compared with $nil at April 30, 2011. The increase in cash and total assets was attributed to the receipt of $40 K from the notes payable in June and July 2011 and the fair value of the shares issued for the mineral property.
