Solitario Exploration & Royalty Corp was incorporated in the state of Colorado on November 15, 1984 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Crown Resources Corporation. In July 1994, Solitario became a publicly traded company on the Toronto Stock Exchange through its Initial Public Offering. On June 12, 2008, the Company changed its name to Solitario Exploration & Royalty Corp. from Solitario Resources Corporation. It is an exploration stage company with a focus on the acquisition of precious and base metal properties with exploration potential and the development or purchase of royalty interests. The Company acquired and hold a portfolio of exploration properties for future sale, joint venture, or to create a royalty prior to the establishment of proven and probable reserves. The Company is currently working on development activities related to its Mt. Hamilton project and intend to develop the Mt. Hamilton project, subject to a number of factors including obtaining necessary permits and availability of required capital, none of which is currently in place. The Company has recorded revenues from joint venture delay rental payments of $200,000 each year, respectively, related to its Bongará project in Peru during 2011, 2010 and 2009, and during 2011 recorded $42,000 of payment revenue related to its Mercurio project in Brazil. Previously, its last significant revenues were recorded in 2000 upon the sale of the Yanacocha property for $6,000,000. Future revenues from joint venture payments or the sale of properties, if any, will also occur on an infrequent basis. At December 31, 2011, it had 12 mineral exploration properties in the United States, Peru, Bolivia, Mexico and Brazil and its Yanacocha and La Tola royalty properties in Peru. It is conducting exploration activities in all of those countries. The Company's exploration activities are subject to various national, state/provincial, and local laws and regulations, which govern prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection of the environment, mine safety, hazardous substances and other matters.
