Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. — The Qin Hai Bulk Cargo Vessel sailed out of the Pacific Ocean Port of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico on June 13, 2012, with a full maximum load 43,829 WMT of Raw Crude Iron Ore sized 1-10mm under contract with Bao Steel. 45,000 WMT remains stockpiled at the port pending dispute resolution with the Mexican Authorities over time lapse in customs. The company began trucking on Oct 24, 2011 through Nov 11, 2011 for a shipping date of Dec 21, 2011; during the month of December, 2011, all iron ore export permits were canceled country wide, and new export regulations became effective overnight. The new iron ore export regulations not only required an iron ore export permit from the Secretary of Economy, but also included a Customs iron ore exporters listing; this entailed a series of Government audits, from the Tax Office, Mining Office, Environmental Agency and from Customs if the company had any prior exports of Iron Ore. Panamerican Minerals Ventures, S.A. de C.V., the Mexico Iron Mining Operator, begin the process of re-qualification to meet the stringent and rigorous new regulations. The Company received the new Secretary of Economy Export Permit in January 2012; however, the audits and other time consuming efforts for Customs listing resulted in the Company becoming one of only a few mining companies authorized to export iron ore from Mexico, on March 6, 2012.
