The objective of the test work is to determine gold recovery forHomestake Paleoplacer gold mineralization using conventionalcyanidation processes. Gold mineralization is hosted in aquartz-pebble conglomerate that was derived from the erosion of thefamous Homestake Gold Mine located 1 mile to the south whichproduced 40 million ounces of gold. 

Initial metallurgical tests have been carried out by McClellandLaboratories, Inc. of Sparks, Nevada on five surface outcropsamples (composited into one sample) collected from the Gustin MinePortal Area on the Homestake Paleoplacer Property. The compositesample had an average grade of 2.05 grams per tonne gold. Goldrecovery of 94.7 % was obtained from a Bottle Roll Test P80 6.3mmFeed with reagent consumption of 0.141 kg/tonne NaCN and 1.678kg/tonne Lime.

The rate at which gold recovery occurred was excellent with59.9% gold recovery in the first 2 hours of leaching, 68.1% in 6hours, 72.8% in 12 hours, 85.2% in 24 hours, 93.5% in 48 hours,94.4% in 72 hours, and 94.7% in 96 hours.

Total silver recovery for the sample was 72.7%.

Richard Bachman, President and CEO of the Company commented: "These metallurgical test results are very encouraging and furthertesting is planned on higher grade components of the deposit".
