PART 1

ITEM 1.               BUSINESS

History and Organization

The following is only a summary of the information, financial statements and the notes included in this Form 10-K.  Unless the context indicates or suggests otherwise, the terms “Buka”, the “Company”, “we,” “our” and “us” means Buka Ventures Inc.

Our Business
 
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 15, 2007.   We are a start-up, pre-exploration stage company engaged in the search for gold and related minerals.  We do not have any subsidiaries, affiliated companies or joint venture partners.   We have no mining operations and have no revenues.  We have incurred losses since inception and must raise additional capital to fund our operations.   There is no assurance we will be able to raise this capital.
 
Our sole asset is a 100% interest in the Sigatoka Gold claim located in the Republic of Fiji.  We acquired the Sigatoka Gold claim for the sum of $5,000 from an unrelated third party on May 1, 2007.  We own no property other than the Sigatoka Gold claim.   As of the date of this Form 10-K, we have not conducted any exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold claim.  We engaged Thomas Raju, a Geological Consultant, to explore and summarize the exploration potential of the Sigatoka Gold claim and to make recommendations.  Under the study, it was recommended that a mineral exploration program consisting of air photo interpretation, geological mapping, geochemical soil sampling and geophysical surveying be conducted at the Sigatoka Gold claim and to identify targets for diamond drilling if warranted.  The cost for this mineral exploration program is estimated to cost of FJD $37,700 (US$20,285).  We will have to raise funds to pay for the mineral exploration program.
 
There is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit or reserve exists at our mineral claim or may exist until sufficient and appropriate exploration is completed and a comprehensive evaluation of such work concludes economic and legal feasibility.   Such work could take many years of exploration and would require expenditure of a substantial amount of capital, capital which we do not currently have and may never be able to raise.
 
We have no historical information to allow anyone to base an evaluation on our future performance. We have only been incorporated since March 15, 2007 and have generated no revenue during our time in existence.  We do not know if we will be successful in our business operations in the future.   Like all new businesses we are a start up company and will suffer all the problems of being a start up company as follows:
 
 
possible delays in exploring the Sigatoka and experiencing cost overruns;
     
 
trying to generate revenue or identify sources of cash, managing our assets and administrating ongoing financial commitments to our creditors;
     
 
adhering to all regulatory requirements both as a future public company and as a company required to meet State and Federal filing requirements; and
     
 
ensuring our shareholders are informed about our development on a regular basis.
 
 
4

 

We have no full-time employees and our management devotes a small percentage of their time to the affairs of the Company.
 
Our administrative office is located at 21 Luke Street, Vatuwaqa, Suva, Fiji.  Our telephone number is 679-331-3255.   
 
The shareholders may read and copy any material filed by Buka with the SEC at the SEC’s Public Reference Room at 100 F Street, N.E., Washington, DC, 20549.   The shareholders may obtain information on the operations of the Public Reference Room by calling the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0330.  The SEC maintains an Internet site that contains reports, proxy and information statements, and other information which Buka has filed electronically with the SEC by assessing the website using the following address:  http://www.sec.gov.   Buka has no website at this time.

ITEM 1A             RISK FACTORS

An investment in our common stock involves an exceptionally high degree of risk and is extremely speculative. In addition to the other information regarding Buka Ventures contained in this Form 10-K, you should consider many important factors in determining whether to purchase the shares in our Company. The following risk factors reflect the potential and substantial material risks which could be involved if you decide to purchase shares in our Company.
 
Risks Associated with Our Business
 
We have no revenues, lack profitable operations, and have incurred losses which we expect to continue into the future.
 
We were incorporated in 2007 and have not yet conducted any exploration activities.  We have no revenues. We have no exploration history upon which you can evaluate the likelihood of our future success or failure.  Our operations are not profitable and our net loss from inception to October 31, 2011 is $98,758.  Based upon current plans, we expect to incur operating losses in future periods in connection with our exploration and evaluation of our mining claim.
 
We need to raise capital to complete the first phase of our evaluation and for operating expenses.
 
We estimate that, with funding committed by our management, we have sufficient cash to continue operations for twelve months provided we only carry out the initial exploration activity recommended by our consultant.  We are in the pre-exploration stage. If the results of our initial exploration activities are positive, we intend to initiate further exploration activities.   We will need to raise additional capital to undertake further exploration activities.  No assurance can be given that we are successful in raising additional capital.  You may be investing in a company that will not have the funds necessary to conduct any meaningful exploration activity due to our inability to raise additional capital.  If that occurs we will have to delay or cease our exploration activity which may result in the loss of your investment.
 
We have no known ore reserves and we cannot guarantee that we will find any gold and/or other valuable mineralization or, if we find gold and/or valuable mineralization, that it may be economically extracted.  If we fail to find any gold and/or other valuable mineralization or if we are unable to find gold and/or valuable mineralization that may be economically extracted, we will have to cease operations.
 
We have no known ore reserves. Even if we find gold and/or other valuable mineralization we cannot guarantee that any gold and/or other valuable mineralization will be of sufficient quantity so as to warrant recovery.
 
 
5

 

Additionally, even if we find gold and/or other valuable mineralization in sufficient quantity to warrant recovery, we cannot guarantee that the ore will be recoverable. Finally, even if any gold and/or other valuable mineralization is recoverable, we cannot guarantee that this can be done at a profit. Failure to locate gold deposits in economically recoverable quantities will cause us to cease operations.   Our ability to achieve profitability and positive cash flow in the future is dependent upon:
 
 
-
Our ability to locate a profitable mineral property;
 
-
Our ability to locate an economic ore reserve; and
 
-
Our ability to profitably extract the mineral and generate revenues

Because we are a small company, have limited capital and have only one claim, we will be limited in our exploration costs.

The possibility of development of and production from our mining claim depends upon the results of exploration programs and/or feasibility studies and the recommendations of duly qualified professional engineers and geologists.  We are a small company and do not have much capital.  We must limit our exploration activity which may adversely affect our ability to find ore reserves since we do not have the capital that other larger companies may have to find ore.  Further, because of our limited capital we can afford to explore only one mining claim which increases our risk due to lack of diversification.
 
Because the probability of an individual prospect ever having reserves is extremely remote, in all probability our property does not contain any reserves, and any funds spent on exploration will be lost.

Because the probability of an individual prospect ever having reserves is extremely remote, in all probability our sole property, the Sigatoka Gold Claim, does not contain any reserves, and any funds spent on exploration will be lost. If we cannot raise further funds as a result, we may have to suspend or cease operations entirely which would result in the loss of your investment.
 
Even with positive results during exploration, the Sigatoka Gold Claim might never be put into commercial production due to inadequate tonnage, low metal prices or high extraction costs.

We might be successful, during future exploration programs, in identifying a source of minerals of good grade but not in the quantity, the tonnage, required to make commercial production feasible.  If the cost of extracting any minerals that might be found on the Sigatoka Gold Claim is in excess of the selling price of such minerals, we would not be able to develop the claim.  Accordingly even if ore reserves were found on the Sigatoka Gold Claim, without sufficient tonnage we would still not be able to economically extract the minerals from the claim in which case we would have to abandon the Sigatoka Gold Claim and seek another mineral property to develop, or cease operations altogether.

Mineral exploration and development activities are inherently risky. If such an adverse event were to occur it may result in a loss of your investment.
 
The business of mineral exploration and extraction involves a high degree of risk. Few properties that are explored are ultimately developed into production.  Most exploration projects do not result in the discovery of commercially mineable deposits of ore.  The Sigatoka Gold Claim, our sole property, does not have a known body of commercial ore. Should our mineral claim be found to have commercial quantities of ore, we would be subject to additional risks respecting any development and production activities. Unusual or unexpected formations, formation pressures, fires, power outages, labor disruptions, flooding, explosions, cave-ins, landslides and the inability to obtain suitable or adequate machinery, equipment or labour are other risks involved in extraction operations and the conduct of exploration programs. We do not carry liability insurance with respect to our mineral exploration operations and we may become subject to liability for damage to life and property, environmental damage, cave-ins or hazards. There are also physical risks to the exploration personnel working in the rugged terrain of our claim. Previous mining exploration activities may have caused environmental damage to the Sigatoka Gold Claim. It may be difficult or impossible to assess the extent to which such damage was caused by us or by the activities of previous operators, in which case, any indemnities and exemptions from liability may be ineffective.
 
Because our officers and directors do not have technical training or experience in starting and operating an exploration company nor in managing a public company, we will have to hire qualified personnel to fulfill these functions. If we lack funds to retain such personnel, or cannot locate qualified personnel, we may have to suspend or cease exploration activity or cease operations which will result in the loss of your investment.
 
None of our management team has experience exploring for minerals, starting and operating a mineral exploration company, nor do they have training in these areas.  As a result their decisions and choices may not take into account standard managerial approaches mineral exploration companies commonly use. Consequently our ultimate financial success could suffer irreparable harm due to certain of management's lack of experience.  Additionally, our officers and directors have no direct training or experience in managing and fulfilling the regulatory reporting obligations of a ‘public company’ like Buka Ventures.   We will have to hire professionals to undertake these filing requirements for Buka Ventures and this will increase the overall cost of operations.
 
Neither of our two directors has visited the Sigatoka Gold Claim.

Our two directors have not visited the Sigatoka mineral claim.  Therefore, they have no personal knowledge of the mineralization on each of the claims, the terrain and the possibilities of hazards during exploration activities.  They have had to rely upon the advice and opinions of the geologists working on each of the claims.
 
Because our officers and directors have other outside business activities and may not be in a position to devote a majority of their time to our exploration activity, our exploration activity may be sporadic which may result in periodic interruptions or suspensions of exploration.
 
Our President will be devoting only 30% of his time, approximately 48 hours per month, to our business.  Our Chief Financial Officer and Secretary-Treasurer will be devoting only approximately 20% of his time, or 32 hours per month to our operations. As a consequence of the limited devotion of time to the affairs of the Company expected from management, our business may suffer.  For example,  because our officers and directors have other outside business activities and may not be in a position to devote a majority of their time to our exploration activity, our exploration activity may be sporadic or may be periodically interrupted or suspended.

Currency conversion control could adversely affect the Company’s operations and profitability.

The Company’s financial statements are reported in U.S. dollars.  We intend to conduct  exploration activity at our mining claim in Fiji.  Accordingly, the Company’s value of its assets and reporting of its operations may be adversely affected by negative changes in the exchange rate of the Fijian against the U.S. dollar or other currencies.

Risks Associated with our Shares.
 
Our officers and directors own a substantial amount of our common stock and will have substantial influence over our operations.
 
Our directors and officers currently own 25,500,000 shares of common stock representing 56% of our outstanding shares.  They purchased their shares for $0.001 per share.  The directors and officers registered for resale 20,000,000 of their shares under an effective registration statement.  They have sold the above mentioned registered shares in March 2009.   Even with this sale of shares, they have substantial influence over our operations and can effect certain corporate transaction without further shareholder approval.  This concentration of ownership may also have the effect of delaying or preventing a change in control.

There is no market for our shares of common stock.

Our common stock is not listed on any exchange or quotation system, and there is no market for our common stock.   Therefore, the ability of our shareholders to sell their shares of common stock may be limited which may affect the price of our shares of common stock.  We intend to apply for a quotation on the OTCBB whereby:

We will have to be sponsored by a participating market maker who will file a Form 211 on our behalf since we will not have direct access to the FINRA personnel; and
   
We will not be quoted on the OTCBB unless we are current in our periodic reports filed with the SEC.

From the date of this Form 10-K, we estimate that it will take us between twelve to eighteen weeks to be approved for a quotation on the OTCBB.  However, there can be no assurance that our shares will be listed for quotation on the OTCBB.

Even if a market develops for our shares our shares may be thinly traded, with wide share price fluctuations, low share prices and minimal liquidity.

Even if our shares of common stock are quoted on the OTCBB, our share price may be volatile with wide fluctuations in response to several factors, including but not limited to:

Potential investors’ anticipated feeling regarding our results of operations;
Increased competition and/or variations in mineral prices;
Our ability or inability to generate future revenues; and
Market perception of the future of the mineral exploration industry.

Further, our share price may be impacted by factors that are unrelated or disproportionate to our operating performance.  Our share price might be affected by general economic, political and market conditions, such as recessions, changes in interest rates or international currency

fluctuations.  In addition, even if our stock is approved for quotation by a market maker through the OTCBB, stocks traded over this quotation system are usually thinly traded, highly volatile and not followed by analysts.  These factors, which are not under our control, may have a material effect on our share price.
 
We will need to sell additional shares of common stock for additional capital for our operations that will result in ownership dilution to our existing shareholders.

We need to raise additional capital through the sale of our common stock.  This will result in ownership dilution to our shareholders whereby their percentage ownership interest in the Company is reduced.  The magnitude of this dilution effect will be determined by the number of shares we will have to issue in the future to obtain the funds required.

Penny Stock Regulations Affect Our Stock Price, Which May Make It More Difficult For Investors To Sell Their Stock.

Broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” are regulated by certain penny stock rules adopted by the SEC. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price per share of less than $5.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ Stock Market, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system). The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer must also provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. In addition, the penny stock rules generally require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock the broker-dealer make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. Our securities are subject to the penny stock rules, and investors may find it more difficult to sell their securities.

ITEM 2.                PROPERTIES

The Sigatoka Gold Claim

Description of Property

The Sigatoka Gold Claim consists of one unpatented mineral claim, located 24 kilometers North of the town of Lautoka, Fiji at Universal Transverse Mecator coordinates Latitude 18°10'59"S and Longitude 177°31 '0"E. The mineral claim was assigned to Buka Ventures Inc. by Omega Ventures Inc. and the said assignment was filed with the Mineral Resources Department of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources of the Government of the Republic of Fiji.

There are no known environmental concerns or parks designated for any area contained within the claims. The property has no encumbrances. As advanced exploration proceeds there may be bonding requirements for reclamation. Buka Ventures Inc. has purchased a 100% interest in the property.

 
9

 

Our Company is the only party having an interest in Sigatoka Gold Claim and it has not entered into any agreements regarding the Claim and there are no outstanding royalties or charges of any kind.
 
Since the acquisition of the Sigatoka Gold Claim was subject to a private transaction, rather than obtaining the Claim directly from the Government of Fiji, by law, our Company must provide a royalty to the Government of Fiji (13.75%) from the revenue from the production of minerals so long as the Claim is owned by Buka. 

The claim was assigned to Buka from Omega Ventures Inc. an unrelated company incorporated in Fiji, and a transfer of title was made with the Fiji Ministry of Mines. The assignment cost was $5,000 including a geological report. Therefore, Buka acquired the surface rights to the minerals and any minerals located beneath the soil.  A subsequent application for a mining license is $825 and is due and payable upon filing an application for the mining license. The Company is responsible upon obtaining an interest in the claim to adhere to the safety and environmental requirements of Fiji.

The following represents certain identifying information in locating and verifying ownership of the Sigatoka Gold Claim:

Claim Name:
Sigatoka Gold Claim
License Number:
AG29564301
Latitude:
18º 10 ’59” South
Longitude:
177º 31’ 0” East
Assignment Transfer:
Omega Ventures Inc.
Registered Owner:
Buka Ventues, Inc. [fee simple]

The Claim is in good standing until such time as the Company decides to abandon it.  When Buka undertakes an exploration program it is required to obtain a mining license from the Ministry of Mines with a payment by Buka of $825 which is renewable each year at the same fee cost.

Accessibility, Climate, Local Resources, Infrastructure And Topography

The Sigatoka Gold Claim is accessible from Lautoka, Fiji by traveling on the country's only highway and by taking an all weather gravel road. The town of Lautoka has an experienced work force and will provide all the necessary services needed for an exploration and development operation, including police, hospitals, groceries, fuel, helicopter services, hardware and other necessary items. Drilling companies and assay facilities are present in Lautoka.

The Sigatoka Gold Claim lies at an elevation of 1,474 feet near the west end of Nakavudra Mountain Range. The main mountain ridge has a maximum peak of 4,341 feet with steep east facing slopes.

The main mountain ridge has a maximum peak of 4,341 feet with steep east facing slopes.   Tropical mountain forests grow at lower elevations in the northeast comer of the claim and good rock exposure is found along the peaks and ridges in the western portion of the claim. The climate is mild year round with the rainy season falling from May to October.

Our Claim is within the electrical circuit of the area and if power does fail during a period of exploration when it is required the Company will use back up generators.   These are available in the nearby towns.

History

Gold was first reported in the area by Fijian and British prospectors over 77 years ago. Mineral lode claims were recorded in 1925 in the surrounding areas.  Numerous showings of mineralization have been discovered in the area and six prospects have achieved significant production, with Mamanuca Gold Mine (32 kilometers away) producing 110,000 ounces of gold annually.   During the 1990' s, several properties north of Sigatoka Gold Claim were drilled by junior mineral exploration companies.  Buka Ventures is preparing to conduct preliminary exploration work on the property.


 

Regional Geology of the Area.   Fiji lies at the midpoint of opposing Tonga Kermadec and new Hebrides convergence zones, separated from the actual convergence zones by two extensional back arc basins which are the North Fiji Basin to the west and the Lau Basin to the east in addition to a series of transform faults including the Fiji Fracture Zone and the Matthew Hunter Ridge. Many of the reconstructions of the past configuration of the is part of the Pacific indicate,however, that Fiji was not so long ago an integral part of the Pacific "Rim of Fire"; the complex plate boundary between Pacific and the Indo Australia plates; a boundary which is well recognized as the locus of several major world-class porphyry coppergold and epithermal gold systems.

Stratigraphy .  The principal bedded rocks for the area of Sigatoka Gold Claim (and for most of Fiji for that matter) are Volcanic rocks which are exposed along a wide axial zone of a broad complex.   Gold at the Mamanuca Gold Mine (which, as stated above, is in close proximity to the Sigatoka Gold Claim) is generally concentrated within extrusive volcanic rocks in the walls of large volcanic caldera. It should, however, not be inferred that because gold was found at the Mamanuca Gold Mine, gold will be found at the Sigatoka Gold Claim.

Intrusive.  The main igneous intrusions consist of the Colo Plutonic Suite consisting of tholetic gabbros, tonalities and trondjhemites. Age data indicate that the intrusive stocks are intermediate in age between Ba Volcanic Group rocks west of the area and the younger Tertiary Wainimala Group rocks exposed to the east.

Theoletic Gabbros, for example, are generally are a greenish or dark colored fine to coarse grained rock. Irregular shaped masses of so called "soda granite" are seen in both sharp and gradational contact with the diorite. The different phases of Colo Plutonic Suite are exposed from south of the Sigatoka Gold Claim to just north of the town of Lautoka and are principal host rocks for gold veins at the Mamanuca Gold Mine.

Structure.  Repeated cycles of folding, faulting and deformation has created a complex structural history in the Lautoka area. Major faults strike north and northeasterly and coincide with zones of the Ba Volcanic Group. The principal shear direction changes from northeast in the area of the Mamanuca Gold Mine to north-south in the area north of Lautoka. The major transform fault areas are the Fiji Fracture Zone and the Hunter Fracture Zone. One system consists of a set of perpendicular fractures, which strike approximately at right angles to each other, and at acute angles to the trend of formations. The other system consists of two sets of fractures with opposing dips, but which strike parallel to each other and to the trend of the overall formations. The first system contains the principle veins of the area and are younger than the second system. The Ba Volcanic Group represent the most important and continuous fractures in the first system.

Deposit Types

On a regional basis this area of Fiji is notable for epo-thermal type gold deposits of which the Mamanuca Gold Mines are typical examples.  Mineralization is located within a large fractured block created where prominent northwest­ striking shears intersect the north striking caldera fault zone. The major lodes cover an area of 2 km and are mostly within 400m of the surface. Lodes occur in three main structural settings:

(i)           steeply dipping northwest striking shears;
(ii)           flatdipping (1040) fractures (flatmakes); and
(iii)           shatter blocks between shears.

Most of the gold occurs in tellurides and there are also significant quantities of gold in pyrite.

Mineralization

No mineralization has been reported for the area of the property but structures and shear zones affiliated with mineralization on adjacent properties pass through it.

The potential reserves are unproven as of yet and no mineralization is apparent for the property.  To date Buka has not undertaken any exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.

Exploration

Records indicate that no detailed exploration has been completed on the property on Sigatoka Gold Claim.

Property Geology  To the east of the property is intrusive consisting of rocks such as tonalite, monzonite, and gabbro while the property itself is underlain by the Ba Volcanic Group sediments and volcanics. The property lies on the Fiji Fracture Zone. The intrusive also consist of a large mass of granodiorite towards the western most point of the property.  The Ba Volcanic Group consists of interlayered chert, argillite and massive andesitic to basaltic volcanics. The volcanics are hornfelsed, commonly contain minor pyrite, pyrrhotite.

Drilling Summary

No drilling is reported on Sigatoka Gold Claim.

Sampling Method; Sample Preparation; Data Verification

All the exploration conducted to date has been conducted according to generally accepted exploration procedures with methods and preparation that are consistent with generally accepted exploration practices.

Interpretations And Conclusions

The area is well known for numerous productive mineral occurrences including the Vatukoula Gold Mines. The local of the Sigatoka Gold Claim is underlain by the same rock units of the Ba Volcanic Group that are found at those mineral occurrence sites.  These rocks consisting of cherts and argillites (sediments) and andesitic to basaltic volcanic have been intruded by granodiorite. Structures and mineralization probably related to this intrusion are found throughout the region and occur on the claim. They are associated with all the major mineral occurrences and deposits in the area. Mineralization found on the claim is consistent with that found associated with zones of extensive mineralization. Past work however has been limited and sporadic and has not tested the potential of the property.  Potential for significant amounts of mineralization to be found exists on the property and it merits intensive exploration.

Recommendations by the Geologist

A two phased exploration program to further delineate the mineralized system currently recognized on Sigatoka Gold Claim is recommended.  The program would consist of air photo interpretation of the structures, geological mapping, both regionally and detailed on the area of the main showings, geophysical survey using both magnetic and electromagnetic instrumentation in detail over the area of the showings and in a regional reconnaissance survey and geochemical soil sample surveying regionally to identify other areas on the claim that are mineralized and in detail on the known areas of mineralization. The effort of this exploration work is to define and enable interpretation of a follow-up diamond drill program, so that the known mineralization and the whole property can be evaluated.

Plant and Equipment

The age and details as to modernization and physical condition of plant and equipment, etc. cannot be stated at this time. This will depend on the exploration company used by the Company. The average age, however, of equipment used by Fijian exploration companies is in excess of 10 to 15 years old. The equipment is not very modern due to numerous sanctions that have been imposed by South Pacific and other governments in response to the various coup d’états that have occurred in Fiji over the last twenty years.

There is no plant or equipment on the Sigatoka Gold Claim at the present time.
 
Competitive Factors
 
The mining industry is highly fragmented. We are competing with many other exploration companies looking for gold. We are among the smallest exploration companies in existence and are an infinitely small participant in the mining business which is the cornerstone of the founding and early stage development of the mining industry. While we generally compete with other exploration companies, there is no competition for the exploration or removal of minerals from our claims. Readily available markets exist for the sale of gold. Therefore, we will likely be able to sell any gold that we are able to recover, in the event commercial quantities are discovered on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  There is no ore body on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.
 
Government Regulation
 
Exploration activities are subject to various national, state, foreign and local laws and regulations in Fiji, 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. We believe that we are in compliance in all material respects with applicable mining, health, safety and environmental statutes and the regulations passed thereunder in Fiji.
 
Environmental Regulation
 
Our exploration activities are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations governing protection of the environment. These laws are continually changing and, as a general matter, are becoming more restrictive. Our policy is to conduct business in a way that safeguards public health and the environment. We believe that our exploration activities are conducted in material compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Changes to current local, state or federal laws and regulations in the jurisdictions where we operate could require additional capital expenditures and increased operating and/or reclamation costs. Although we are unable to predict what additional legislation, if any, might be proposed or enacted, additional regulatory requirements could render certain exploration activities uneconomic.
 
One of the major prerequisites for the approval of a Prospecting License or Mining Lease application is the approval of the EIA/EMP by the Dept of Environment. For current prospecting activities/mining operations, relevant waste discharge permits apply.  Additionally, the MRD’s Environment Division carries out on-site environmental inspections to ensure waste emissions are within the discharge permit/mine environmental release guidelines and comply with socio-environmental standards, which are benchmarked against international standards/best practices.

The Director of Mines at the Mineral Resources Department, grants Prospector's Rights under the Mining Act. With the consent of the Minister, the Director also grants Prospecting Licenses, Special Prospecting Licenses, Permits to Mine, Mining Leases, Special Mining Leases, Special Site Rights, and Road Access Licenses. Applications for any Right, License or Lease are considered on their own merit. The criteria for assessing merit are: the expertise and capacity/capability of the applicant to undertake the geological program, any past record that the prospecting company has in mineral exploration, and the financial standing of the company in terms of its financial ability to undertake the proposed work program.   Fees are determined at the time of application.
 
Employees
 
Initially, we intend to use the services of subcontractors for manual labor exploration work on our claim.  At present, we have no employees as such although each of our officers and directors devotes a portion of their time to the affairs of the Company.
 
 
15

 
 
None of our officers and directors has an employment agreement with us. We presently do not have pension, health, annuity, insurance, profit sharing or similar benefit plans; however, we may adopt such plans in the future. There are presently no personal benefits available to any employee.
 
As indicated above we will hire subcontractors on an as needed basis. We have not entered into negotiations or contracts with any of potential subcontractors.  We do not intend to initiate negotiations or hire anyone until we are nearing the time of commencement of our planned exploration activities.
 
There are no permanent facilities, plants, buildings or equipment on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.

ITEM 7.              MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Forward Looking Statements

This Form 10-K contains "forward-looking statements" that involve risks and uncertainties. The use of words such as "anticipate", "expect", "intend", "plan", "believe", "seek" and "estimate", and variations of these words and similar expressions to identify such forward-looking statements. Our actual results are most likely to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements for many reasons, including the risks faced by us described in the "Risk Factors" section and elsewhere in this Form 10-K. These forward-looking statements address, among others, such issues as:

 
the estimated financial information we are furnishing in this Form 10-K;
     
 
our future projected earning and cash flows;

 
the expansion of our business and its operations over the next few years;
     
 
Our future expectations of development projects.

These statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and our perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe are appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will meet our expectations and predictions depend on a number of risks and uncertainties, which could cause our actual results, performance and financial condition to differ materially from our expectation.

 
17

 

Consequently, these cautionary statements qualify all of the forward-looking statements made in this Form 10-K. We cannot assure you that the actual results or developments anticipated by us will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they would have the expected effect on us or our business or operations.

Our Business

We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on March 15, 2007.   We are a start-up, pre-exploration stage company engaged in the search for gold and related minerals.  We do not have any subsidiaries, affiliated companies or joint venture partners.   We have no mining operations and have no revenues.  We have incurred losses since inception and must raise additional capital to fund our operations.   There is no assurance we will be able to raise this capital.
 
Our sole asset is a 100% interest in the Sigatoka Gold claim located in the Republic of Fiji.  We acquired the Sigatoka Gold claim for the sum of $5,000 from an unrelated third party on May 1, 2007.  We own no property other than the Sigatoka Gold claim.   As of the date of this Form 10-K, we have not conducted any exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold claim.  We engaged Thomas Raju, a Geological Consultant, to explore and summarize the exploration potential of the Sigatoka Gold claim and to make recommendations.  Under the study, it was recommended that a mineral exploration program consisting of air photo interpretation, geological mapping, geochemical soil sampling and geophysical surveying be conducted at the Sigatoka Gold claim and to identify targets for diamond drilling if warranted.  The cost for this mineral exploration program is estimated to cost of FJD $37,700 (US$20,285).  We will have to raise funds to pay for the mineral exploration program.
 
There is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit or reserve exists at our mineral claim or may exist until sufficient and appropriate exploration is completed and a comprehensive evaluation of such work concludes economic and legal feasibility.   Such work could take many years of exploration and would require expenditure of a substantial amount of capital, capital which we do not currently have and may never be able to raise.
 
We have no full-time employees and our management devotes a small percentage of their time to the affairs of the Company.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS

Our financial commitments for the next twelve months consist of primarily related expenses of approximately $23,000 associated with the initiation of a mineral exploration program for a total estimate of expenses of $53,185.  Including mineral exploration program, we will have to incur the following estimated expenses, including amounts owed to third party creditors less cash on hand, over the next twelve months:

Estimated expenses
  $ 53,185    

Our engineering consultant has recommended an exploration program for the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  Currently, we do not presently have the requisite funds to complete the recommended exploration program.   If we cannot raise money to complete the exploration program, we may be required to cease operation.  Our directors and officers intend to finance our operation expenses for the next twelve months and to complete the exploration of the Sigatoka Gold Claim.
 
Even if we raise the sufficient funds to complete the exploration program, assuming the exploration program results warrant further exploration, we will be required to raise additional funds for further exploration activities.
 
We do not intend to hire any employees at this time. All of the work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim will be conducted by unaffiliated independent contractors that we will hire. The independent contractors will be responsible for surveying and exploration.   We may engage a geologist to assist in evaluating the information derived from the exploration and excavation including advising us on the economic feasibility of removing any mineralized material we may discover.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Foreign Currency and Exchange Rates
 
Our mineral property is located in the Republic of Fiji.  However costs expressed in the geological report on the Claim are expressed in United States Dollars.   Any future work to be conducted at the Claim is expected to be paid in Fijian dollars.  The functional currency is considered to be US dollars.

Results of Operations for the year ended October 31, 2011
 
For the period from November 1, 2010 to October 31, 2011, we had a net loss of $14,839 and a total net loss from March 15, 2007 (date of inception) to October 31, 2011 of $98,758.  Our loss for the year ended October 31, 2011 represents various expenses incurred with payment to our independent accountants, office expenses and various accrued expenses which have not been paid to date as follows:

(*)
The increase in Accounting and audit fees is due to an increase in the cost of the services, as well as a timing difference on when costs were incurred from 2010 to 2011 – a substantial portion of the audit fees for the year ended October 31, 2009 were incurred prior to October 31, 2009, which was not the case for the audit of the October 31, 2010 financial statements.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of October 31, 2011, the Company had cash of $4,305 and current liabilities of $32,763 representing a negative working capital of $28,458.

We cannot assure that additional capital required to finance our operations will be available on acceptable terms, if at all.  Any failure to secure additional financing may force us to modify our business plan.  In addition, we cannot be assured of profitability in the future.

Critical Accounting Policies

In presenting our financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepting accounting principals, or GAAP, we are required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenue, costs and expenses and related disclosures.

Some of the estimates and assumptions we are required to make relate to matters that are inherently uncertain as they pertain to future events. We base these estimates and assumptions on historical experience or on various other factors that we believe to be reasonable and appropriate under the circumstances.

 
20

 

On an ongoing basis, we reconsider and evaluate our estimates and assumptions. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates.
 
We believe that the critical accounting policies listed below involve our more significant judgments, assumptions and estimates and, therefore, could have the greatest potential impact on our financial statements. In addition, we believe that a discussion of these policies is necessary to understand and evaluate the financial statements contained in this prospectus.

Estimates and Assumptions

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements in accordance with general accepted accounting principles.  Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of the assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses.   Actual results could vary from the estimates that were assumed in preparing these financial statements.

Mineral property acquisition and exploration costs

The cost of acquiring mineral properties or claims is initially capitalized and then tested for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that its carrying amount may not be recoverable. Mineral exploration costs are expensed as incurred.

Income Taxes
 
The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to be reversed.   An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded, when it is more likely than not, that such tax benefits will not be realized.

Corporate Organization and History Within Last Five years

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on March 15, 2007 under the name Buka Ventures Inc.  The Company does not have any subsidiaries, affiliated companies or joint venture partners.   We have not been involved in any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceedings since inception nor have we been party to a reclassification, merger, consolidation, or purchase or sale of a significant amount of assets not in the ordinary course of business other than the Sigatoka Gold Claim.    We have plans to complete Phase I of our exploration program during the summer of 2012.

We have relied upon advances from our directors to assist in financing the Company’s operations since inception.  As of the October 31, 2011 our directors had advanced an aggregate total of $14,708 to the Company.

Since our inception we have incurred the following expenses:
Accounting and audit
  $ 32,577  
Accounting and audit fees since inception.

Previously the Company accrued as an expense on a monthly basis management fees, rent and telephone with an offsetting entry to Capital in Excess of Par Value.   This accounting practice is not longer adhered to.
 
Our Business
 
We intend to undertake exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim when we have sufficient money to do so.
 
We are presently in the pre-exploration stage and there is no assurance that mineralized material with any commercial value exits on our property.
 
We do not have any ore body and have not generated any revenues from our operations.
 
To become profitable and competitive, we must invest into the exploration of our property before we start production of any minerals we may find. We must obtain equity or debt financing to provide the capital required to fully implement our phased exploration program.  We have no assurance that financing will be available to us on acceptable terms. If financing is not available on satisfactory terms, we will be unable to commence, continue, develop or expand our exploration activities. Even if available, equity financing could result in additional dilution to existing shareholders.
 
Our auditors have issued a going concern opinion. This means that our auditors believe there is substantial doubt that we can continue as an on-going business for the next twelve months unless we obtain additional capital to pay our bills. This is because we have not generated any revenues and no revenues are anticipated until we begin removing and selling minerals. Accordingly, we must raise cash from sources other than the sale of minerals found on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  Our only other source for cash at this time is investments by others in the Company.  We must raise cash to implement our planned exploration program and stay in business.
 
To meet our need for cash we must raise additional capital.  We will attempt to raise additional money through a private placement, public offering or through loans.  We have discussed this matter with our officers and directors.  At the present time, we have not made any arrangements to raise additional cash.  We require additional cash to continue operations.  Such operations could take many years of exploration and would require expenditure of very substantial amounts of money, money we do not presently have and may never be able to raise.   If we cannot raise it we will have to abandon our planned exploration activities and go out of business.
 
Our future financial success will be dependent on the success of the exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.   Such exploration may take years to complete and future cash flows, if any, are impossible to predict at this time.   The realization value from any mineralization which may be discovered by us is largely dependent on factors beyond our control such as the market value of metals produced, mining regulations in the Republic of Fiji and foreign exchange rates.
 
We have no plant or significant equipment to sell, nor are we going to buy any plant or significant equipment during the next twelve months. We will not buy any equipment until we have located a body of ore and we have determined it is economical to extract the ore from the land.
 
We may attempt to interest other companies to undertake exploration work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim through joint venture arrangement or even the sale of part of the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  Neither of these avenues has been pursued as of the date of this Form 10-K.
 
 
22

 
 
We do not intend to hire any employees at this time. All of the work on the Sigatoka Gold Claim will be conducted by unaffiliated independent contractors that we will hire. The independent contractors will be responsible for surveying, exploration, and excavation.  We may engage a geologist to assist in evaluating the information derived from the exploration and excavation including advising us on the economic feasibility of removing any mineralized material we may discover.
 
Trends
 
We are in the pre-explorations stage, have not generated any revenue and have no prospects of generating any revenue in the foreseeable future.  We are unaware of any known trends, events or  uncertainties that have had, or are reasonably likely to have, a material impact on our business or income, either in the long term of short term, other than as described in this section or in ‘Risk Factors’.
 
Off-balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to our shareholders.
 
Short and long-term Trend Liabilities
 
We are unaware of any known trends, events or uncertainties that have or are reasonably likely to have a material impact on our business either in the long-term or long-term liquidity which have not been disclosed under “Risk Factors” on page 5.
 
Internal and External Sources of Liquidity
 
There are no material internal or external sources of liquidity.
 
Known Trends, Events or Uncertainties having an Impact on Income
 
Since we are in the start-up stage and the Sigatoka Gold Claim has not produced any income, there is a chance that it never will.  We do not know of any trends, events or uncertainties that are reasonably expected to have a material impact on income in the future.
 
Dividend Policy

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends or distributions on our common stock.   We currently intend to retain our future earnings to support operations and to finance future growth and expansion and, therefore, do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.

Compensation Plans

As at October 31, 2011 and up to the date of this Form 10-K, we have no shares of our common stock that are issued under compensation plans approved by our shareholders.

ITEM 9A             CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including the Principal Executive Officer, Ms. Ritesh Singh, and Principal Accounting Officer, Ms. Ranjana Bharat, we have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as required by Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(b) as of October 31, 2011 (the “Evaluation Date”). Based on that evaluation, the Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer have concluded that these disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the Evaluation Date as a result of the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting discussed below.
 
Disclosure controls and procedures are those controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Notwithstanding the assessment that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective and that there were material weaknesses as identified below, we believe that our financial statements contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2011 fairly present our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows in all material respects.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Company's internal control over financial reporting is a process, under the supervision of the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company's financial statements for external purposes in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). Internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

-
Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the Company's assets;

-
Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of the financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and the Board of Directors; and

 
24

 

-
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the Company's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

The Company's management conducted an assessment of the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of October 31, 2011, based on criteria established in Internal Control –Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO"). As a result of this assessment, management identified a material weakness in internal control over financial reporting.

A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company's annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

The material weakness identified is described below.

1.  
Certain entity level controls establishing a “tone at the top” were considered material weaknesses.  As of October 31, 2011, the Company did not have a separate audit committee or a policy on fraud.  A whistleblower policy is not necessary given the small size of the organization.

2.  
Due to the significant number and magnitude of out-of-period adjustments identified during the year- end closing process, management has concluded that the controls over the period-end financial reporting process were not operating effectively. A material weakness in the period-end financial reporting process could result in us not being able to meet our regulatory filing deadlines and, if not remedied, has the potential to cause a material misstatement or to miss a filing deadline in the future. Management override of existing controls is possible given the small size of the organization and lack of personnel.

3.  
There is no system in place to review and monitor internal control over financial reporting. The Company maintains an insufficient complement of personnel to carry out ongoing monitoring responsibilities and ensure effective internal control over financial reporting.

As a result of the material weakness in internal control over financial reporting described above, the Company's management has concluded that, as of October 31, 2011, the Company's internal control over financial reporting was not effective based on the criteria in Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by COSO.

This Annual Report does not include an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. We were not required to have, nor have we, engaged our independent registered public accounting firm to perform an audit of internal control over financial reporting pursuant to the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management's report in this Annual Report.

 
25

 
 
Our independent accountants have stated, in their report included in this Form 10-K,  that “….but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting   Accordingly, we express no such opinion”.
 
ITEM 9A (T)      CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

There were no changes in the Company’s internal controls or in other factors that could affect its disclosure controls and procedures subsequent to the Evaluation Date, nor any deficiencies or material weaknesses in such disclosure controls and procedures requiring corrective actions.

ITEM 10
DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Directors and Executive Officers

The following table sets forth the names and ages of our directors and executive officers, the principal offices and positions with us held by each person and the date such person became our director or executive officer.  Our executive officers are appointed by our Board of Directors. Our directors serve until the earlier occurrence of the election of his or her successor at the next meeting of stockholders, death, resignation or removal by the Board of Directors.

Chief Financial Officer, Secretary and Director

Ritesh Chandra Singhy has served as Chief Executive Officer, President and Director since the Company’s inception.  Since 2002, Ms. Singhy has served as Legal Executive of Sherani & Company, Barristers Notaries Public, Suva, Fiji.

Ranjana Bharat has served as Chief Financial Officer and Director since the Company’s inception.  Since 1998, Mr. Bharat has served as an Accounts Executive of Sherani & Company, Barristers Notaries Public, Suva, Fiji.  Mr. Bharat has a Bachelor of Arts from the University of South Pacific in 1995.

We have an audit committee, but do not have a compensation committee due to our size.

Audit Committee

We have an audit committee whose members consist of Ritesh Chandra Singh, our Chief Executive Officer and Ranjana Bharat our Chief Financial Officer neither of whom are independent.  Further, neither Ms. Singh nor Mr. Bharat can be considered an “audit committee financial expert” as defined in Item 401 of Regulation S-K.  Given our size and limited financial ability, we do not anticipate in seeking an audit committee financial expert in the near future.

 
26

 

The Charter of the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors sets forth the responsibilities of the Audit Committee. The primary function of the Audit Committee is to oversee and monitor our accounting and reporting processes and the audits of our financial statements

Since inception on March 15, 2007, our Board has conducted its business entirely by consent resolutions.

Significant Employees

Buka has no paid employees as such.  Our Officers and Directors fulfill many functions that would otherwise require Buka to hire employees or outside consultants.  We anticipate engaging the services of workers to assist in the exploration of the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  We expect to engage a field worker(s) during the summer of 2011 to assist in conducting the Phase I exploration work to undertaken on the Sigatoka Gold Claim.  Any field workers we engage will not be considered employees either on a full time or part time basis.  This is because our exploration programs will not last more than a few weeks and once completed these individuals will no longer be required to fulfill such functions.

Family Relationships

Our President and our Chief Financial Officer and Secretary Treasurer are unrelated.

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

To the knowledge of Buka, during the past five years, none of our directors or executive officers:

(1)
has filed a petition under the federal bankruptcy laws or any state insolvency law, nor had a receiver, fiscal agent or similar officer appointed by the court for the business or property of such person, or any partnership in which she was a general partner at or within two years before the time of such filings;

(2)
was convicted in a criminal proceeding or named subject of a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses);

(3)

(ii)  engaging in any type of business practice; or

(iii) engaging in any activities in connection with the purchase or sale of any security or commodity or in connection with any violation of federal or state securities laws or federal commodities laws;

ITEM 11.             EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

General Philosophy

The Company’s Board of Directors is responsible for establishing and administering the Company’s executive and director compensation.

Executive Compensation

In light of our limited capital, the executive officers receive no cash compensation for serving the Company.  Since inception, until July 31, 2010, the Company accrued $500 per month for management fees related to services provided by the officers to the Company.  This accrual was established for accounting purposes only and will never be paid in either cash or shares either now or in the future.  The management fee expense was offset against a credit to “Capital in Excess of Par Value.”  After July 31, 2010, the Company ceased this practice of accruing management fees as described above.

Compensation Summary

The following table summarizes all compensation earned by or paid to our Chief Executive Officer (Principal Executive Officer) and other executive officers, during the past three fiscal years ended October 31, 2011, 2010, 2009, and 2008.

To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Buka Ventures Inc.
(A Pre-Exploration Stage Company)

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Buka Ventures Inc. (A Pre-Exploration Stage Company) (The Company) as of October 31, 2011 and 2010, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ deficiency, and cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended October 31, 2011, and for the period from March 15, 2007 (date of inception) to October 31, 2011. The Company’s management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purposes of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting.   Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Buka Ventures Inc. (a Pre-Exploration Stage Company) as of October 31, 2011 and 2010, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years in the two-year period ended October 31, 2011, and the period from March 15, 2007 (date of inception) to October 31, 2011, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company will need additional working capital to service its debt and for its planned activity, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are described in the notes to the financial statements. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
October 31, 2011

1.           ORGANIZATION

The Company, Buka Ventures Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on March 15, 2007 with the authorized capital stock of 750,000,000 shares at $0.001 par value.

The Company was organized for the purpose of acquiring and developing mineral properties.  At the report date mineral claims, with unknown reserves, had been acquired.  The Company has not established the existence of a commercially minable ore deposit and therefore has not reached the exploration stage and is considered to be in the pre-exploration stage.

2.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Accounting Methods

The Company recognizes income and expenses based on the accrual method of accounting.

Dividend Policy

The Company has not yet adopted a policy regarding payment of dividends.

Basic and Diluted Net Income (loss) Per Share

 
Basic net income (loss) per share amounts are computed based on the weighted average number of shares actually outstanding.   Diluted net income (loss) per share amounts are computed using the weighted average number of common and common equivalent shares outstanding as if shares had been issued on the exercise of the common share rights unless the exercise becomes antidulutive and then the basic and diluted per share amounts are the same.

Evaluation of Long-Lived Assets

The Company periodically reviews its long term assets and makes adjustments, if the carrying value exceeds fair value.

Foreign Currency Translations

Part of the transactions of the Company were completed in Fijian dollars and have been translated to US dollars as incurred, at the exchange rate in effect at the time, and therefore, no gain or loss from the translation is recognized.  The functional currency is considered to be US dollars.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized on the sale and delivery of a product or the completion of a service provided.

2.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - Continued

Income Taxes

The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to be reversed.   An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded, when it is more likely than not, that such tax benefits will not be realized.

The Company’s deferred tax assets, valuation allowance, and change in valuation allowance are as follows (“NOL” denotes Net Operating Loss):

    14,247       2030       4,275       (4,275 )     -  
                                         
2011
    14,839       2031       4,458       (4,458 )        
                                         
    $ 98,758             $ 29,634     $ (29,634 )   $ -  

The total valuation allowance as of October 31, 2011 was $29,634 which increased by $4,458 for the year ended October 31, 2011.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 
The Company reviews and evaluates long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable.  The assets are subject to impairment consideration under ASC 360-10-35-17 if events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amounts might not be recoverable.   When the Company determines that an impairment analysis should be done, the analysis will be performed using rules of ASC 930-360-35, Asset Impairment, and 360-10-15-3 through 15-5, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.

Advertising and Market Development

The company expenses advertising and market development costs as incurred.

2.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES - Continued

Financial Instruments

 
The carrying amounts of financial instruments are considered by management to be their fair value due to their short term maturities.

Estimates and Assumptions

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements in accordance with general accepted accounting principles.  Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of the assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses.   Actual results could vary from the estimates that were assumed in preparing these financial statements.

 
Statement of Cash Flows

 
For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs

Mineral property acquisition costs are initially capitalized when incurred. These costs are then assessed for impairment when factors are present to indicate the carrying costs may not be recoverable. Mineral exploration costs are expensed when incurred.

 
Environmental Requirements

 
At the report date environmental requirements related to the mineral claim acquired are unknown and therefore any estimate of any future cost cannot be made.

Reclassifications

Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform with current period presentation.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

The Company does not expect that the adoption of other recent accounting pronouncements will have a material impact on its financial statements.

3.           ACQUISITION OF MINERAL CLAIM

 
On May 1, 2007, the Company acquired the Sigatoka Gold Claim located in the Republic of Fiji from Omega Ventures Inc., an unrelated company, for the consideration of $5,000.  The Sigatoka Gold Claim is located 24 km north of the city of Lautoka, Fiji.  Under Fijian law, the claim remains in good standing as long as the Company has an interest in it.   There is no annual maintenance fee or minimum exploration work required on the Claim.

As of October 31, 2007, the Company determined the $5,000 mineral property acquisition cost was impaired, and recorded a related impairment loss in the statement of operations.

4.           SIGNIFICANT TRANSACTIONS WITH RELATED PARTIES

The two officers-directors have acquired 56% of the common stock issued, have made advances to the Company of $14,708 ($9,055 and $2,539 were advanced during the years ended October 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively), and have made contributions to capital of $24,800 to the Company in the form of expenses paid for the Company. The advances are non-interest bearing and payable on demand.

5.           CAPITAL STOCK

On October 31, 2007 one of the Company’s directors received 5,000,000 common shares at a price of $0.001 per share for reimbursement of expenses paid by him for the Company in the amount of $5,000.

On October 31, 2008 the Company issued to its officers and directors 40,500,000 common shares at $0.001 per share for a cash consideration of $40,500.

Under an effective registration statement, the directors and officers sold 20,000,000 common shares to other investors in March 2009.

6.           GOING CONCERN

The Company intends to seek business opportunities that will provide a profit.  However, the Company does not have the working capital necessary to be successful in this effort and to service its debt, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

Continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining additional working capital and the management of the Company has developed a strategy, which it believes will accomplish this objective through additional advances from related parties, and equity funding, which will enable the Company to operate for the coming year.
