DRAPER, UT--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2012) - Gold and GemStone Mining Inc. (
Charmaine King, CEO of Gold and Gemstone Mining Inc., has announced the signing of a joint venture with Blue Orange Mining Ltd, based in Ghana offering 15 gold concessions, in a 50/50 JV.
Each concession measures between eighteen (18) to twenty-five (25) acres thus producing a total area of about forty-eight (48) acres in Dunkwa-Offin, fifty(50) acres in Pokukrom, and a total of two hundred and seventy-one (271) acres in Bibiani.
Six concessions were chosen for extensive testing, to evaluate the reserves. Results from this program would dictate the safe projection of resource to cover the thirteen mineable concessions for this project.
The concessions were evaluated by conventional polygonal methods to define the potential resources of minerals. Prospected data for the concessions was proven by a close drilling program undertaken by Dunkwa Goldfields Limited, a dredging company that held rights to extensive alluvial terrains along the Offin, Oda and Ancobra Rivers. When the company was declared bankrupt, its concessions were assigned by government for small scale operations. Records from this evaluation reveal an average reserve of approximately 11,083,696 tonnes at a grade of 0.75g/t for the six concessions. This projected over all thirteen concessions confirming a total resource of approximately 258,556 ounces and concluding a net average cost of production $721.45 per ounce for the life span of the project.
Mrs. King goes on to comment on the findings of the geological report, "GGSM is extremely pleased to announce to our shareholders and the public the geological report on our newest JV project with Blue Orange Mining shows over 250,000 ounces of easily extractable gold from the 13 mineable concessions. Even if gold was to drop to $1,500.00 per ounce, this concession would be worth over $380,000,000.00 to GGSM and our JV partners Blue Orange. With an average production cost for GGSM of $721.45 per ounce we are looking at over $200,000,000.00 in gross operating revenue for GGSM and Blue Orange Mining. Furthermore, GGSM is starting negotiations with Blue Orange to locate and finance the heavy equipment needed to begin moving forward."
