This statement is being filed by Kyneton Investments, Ltd., a Cayman Islands corporation ("Kyneton"). SIL Nominees, Ltd., a Cayman Islands corporation ("SIL") is a nominee company that holds the securities that are the subject of this Schedule 13D for the benefit of Kyneton. Kyneton is a securities investment company. The principal place of business for Kyneton is c/o Shield Management Services, 2 Jane Street #501, Toronto, Canada M6S4W3. During the past five years, Kyneton has not been convicted in any criminal proceedings or been subject to any judgment, decree or final order enjoining any future violations of, or prohibiting or mandating activities subject to, federal or state securities laws or finding any violation of such laws in a civil proceeding of a judicial or administrative body. ITEM 3. SOURCE AND AMOUNT OF FUNDS OR OTHER CONSIDERATION. The securities were acquired pursuant to the terms of a Second Amended Plan of Reorganization (the "Plan of Reorganization") effective April 11, 2000 (the "Effective Date") with respect to Issuer's prior filing under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The Plan of Reorganization was approved by order of the United States Bankruptcy Court, Central District of California, San Fernando Valley Division, filed and entered on March 31, 2000. No part of the purchase price for the securities was or will be represented by funds or other consideration borrowed or otherwise obtained for the purpose of acquiring, holding, trading or voting the securities. ITEM 4. PURPOSE OF TRANSACTION. The Reporting Person beneficially owned shares of the Issuer's preferred stock ("Preferred Stock") and/or shares of its common stock ("Common Stock") prior to the Effective Date of the Plan of Reorganization. Pursuant to the terms of the Plan of Reorganization, each share of the Issuer's Preferred Stock outstanding immediately prior to the Effective Date was converted on the Effective Date into 5.27 shares of the Issuer's Common Stock (the "Conversion"). In addition, pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization, on the Effective Date, a 1 for 500 reverse split of Issuer's Common Stock occurred (the "Reverse Split"). The shares of Common Stock set forth in Items 7, 9 and 11, and the percentage set forth in Item 13, of the cover page to this Schedule 13D reflect the Conversion and the Reverse Split. Pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization, among other things, (i) Mr. Mark S. Zucker, Mr. Divo Milan and Mr. Selwyn Kossuth were appointed Directors of Issuer; (ii) the Issuer's capital structure was revised to authorize two classes of stock, "Common Stock" and "Preferred Stock", comprised of 50,000,000 shares of Common Stock, par value $0.01, and 10,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock, par value $0.01; (iii) the Board of Directors of Issuer was authorized to amend its Bylaws and Articles of Incorporation to, among other things, prevent unfair attempts to take over Issuer, such as provisions for the issuance of preferred warrants or similar securities; (iv) the Issuer was authorized to spin-out its wholly-owned subsidiary, Goldco Ltd., a Nevada corporation, to Issuer's shareholders; (v) the Issuer was authorized to reincorporate in another jurisdiction (the Issuer has reincorporated from Colorado to Nevada); and (vi) the Issuer was authorized to change its name (which has been changed to Aries Ventures Inc.). As contemplated under the Plan of Reorganization, Goldco Ltd. holds or will hold all the Issuer's gold mining operations in Zimbabwe through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Casmyn Mining Zimbabwe (Private) Ltd. -3-
