Subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval, the company plans to raise a minimum of $300,000 through a non-brokered private placement by issuing 2 million units at a price of $0.15 per unit. Each unit will consist of one common share and common share purchase warrant exercisable for 18 months at $0.25. Finders’ fees may be paid in connection with this financing. The funds are intended to continue funding land acquisition in Carolina, field work on the Monte Cristo Property and general corporate purposes.
In Nevada, sampling and mapping of the southern part of the enlarged Monte Cristo block is complete. Rock samples of the widespread quartz-calcite veining in the Ohio Camp area show clustering of anomalous gold and silver values. Compilation work of all old exploration records for the whole 11 km Monte Cristo belt continues. In Carolina, sampling of dump and float material around old shallow, early 1800 workings has confirmed old records of visible gold in “greenstone” style quartz veining. Two samples from one working in North Carolina in which VG occurs, assayed 0.5 and 0.25 ounces per ton (opt) Au. One composite dump sample from the Saluda area, South Carolina assayed 5.9 opt Au.
The company has granted 1.7 million options to employees, consultants, officers and directors at an exercise price of $0.15 per share, expiring on September 29, 2009. The grant of options is subject to regulatory approval.
Assays were either by Fire/AA or Fire/Gravimetric methods at the American Assay laboratories in Sparks, Nevada. Douglas R. Bowden BSc, MSc, VP Exploration, registered geologist in the State of Utah is the Qualified Person supervising GSM’s technical work.
