Sutter Gold ‘s International Connection 

Sutter Gold Mining Inc. ("SGMI" or "The Company"), is incorporated in the province of British Columbia, and its principal business activity is the exploration of mineral properties. SGMI's corporate office is in Lakewood, Colorado. Sutter Gold Mining Company is a wholly-owned subsidiary of SGMI.

This is an interview with Mr. Robert Hutmacher
Chief Financial Office of Sutter Gold Mining Company Inc.

Bob, talking to you, two issues come up. One, what does the company do? Two, who are the best friends of the company? It is a schizophrenic relationship. That is why the stock is so interesting. So, my first question is what is the company and where is it going?

ROBERT HUTMACHER [A]:  Sutter Gold has properties in California. The main project is the Lincoln Comot project, and that's in California. We're working on a feasibility study on that, and, of course, also continuing to work on the permitting process, some of which are permitted already. Certain permits just need amendment. So that's really the main focus of the company right now.

Q:  How many people are working at the company?

A:  Nine right now.

Q:  When would you get into a drilling program?

A:  There are no plans to do a drilling program right now.

Q:  So what is the next step to bring the company forward?

A:  It's completing the feasibility technical study.

Q:  That's basically paperwork.

A:  Yes, but it's defining the resource and everything that goes into an engineering feasibility study that can be filed on the exchange.

Q:  When the feasibility study is completed, what do you expect and what do you want to do?

A:  It's really confirming what we're thinking is there, which is a resource that will be economic to support a mine.

Q:  What happens when you raise money?

A:  Again, the first step is to complete the feasibility study. Once that is completed, then the Board of Directors will have to make a production decision and say, yes, the results are satisfactory so then we'll have to raise money to build a mine.

Q:  May I ask roughly how much money you think you will have to raise?

A:  That's a difficult question. That's part of what the feasibility study will determine. But that could be anywhere from $20 to $30 million.

Q:  If the feasibility study is favorable, you get the money, when would you get into production?

A:  I think once the production decision is made, generally it's going to be at least 18 months.

Q:  Maybe it's unfair to ask, but how much production do you expect, let's say two years from today or two and a half years from today?

A:  I think the goal would be to do something around 30,000 ounces per year.

Q:  So 30,000 ounces at $1,000 per ounce is $30 million.

A:  That sounds about right.

Q:  And you can do it for five or ten years?

A:  It depends on the resource estimate but that would be the goal.

Q:  But if you go to production for ten years at $1,000 we are talking about a $300 million potential cash flow minus the production costs, so let's say it's 50 percent. We are talking about $150 million coming into the company. Thus, $15M would equally represent $600M expected revenues and $300M income. We are betting twenty to one. If gold is $2,000 per ounce in 2013 – it is already $1.120 – this yearly revenue is $60M and profit is over $30M. It is 30¢ a share after $600,000,000 revenues.

A:  Yes, we certainly believe the potential is very high at Sutter.

Q:  It's important that in two years' time you may be bringing in $30 million. And the company itself today, with 100 million shares outstanding, is selling at let's say $15 million, which is half of the first year's revenue.

A:  Right.

Q:  Is there a possibility to expand the mine's scope and operation in the years to come?

A:  Yes. There's certainly potential to have other mines in the area. For instance, we have Lincoln Comet as the initial project. The Keystone and Eureka would be other projects in that area, and my recollection is there are roughly 11 mines in that general area under our control.

Q:  So in other words, if we look three years from now and the price of gold is $1,500 you would have a revenue base of $45 million cash staying in the company to start repaying the costs, and the valuation would certainly be higher than $.15 a share.

A:  I would hope so.

Q:  The company has very powerful stockholders, people who look at bigger numbers than $15 million. And if they see the possibility of making it, then they will put in money and put in energy and expand the company. The first is U.S. Energy. What is U.S. Energy's interest in the company?

A:  It's under 10 percent. I think roughly 4 to 5 percent.

Q:  What is their interest in the situation?

A:  They're certainly an interested investor.

Q:  What can they contribute besides money?

A:  I'm not sure I can speak for them but they have always been helpful.

Q:  But they definitely have money.

A:  Their balance sheet is strong.

Q:  Yes. They are certainly not unmindful of the potential.

A:  I would think so.

Q:  Now, let's go to South Africa. They are owners of 50 percent of the company.

A:  Right.

Q:  What do they have in mind?

A:  They have provided financing here recently with the revolving line of credit and have taken the most interest through a board member who is very knowledgeable and been of great assistance. They're certainly very interested in the project and would like to see the feasibility completed and a mine built that becomes profitable.

Q:  Can you describe the South African company?

A:  They're a very large bank and investment company. They provide financing to a lot of different companies around the world.

Q:  So it's basically a finance company, like many other South African companies.

A:  I believe that is correct.
