Goldrush Provides Corporate Updateadmin
Vancouver, British Columbia: Goldrush Resources Ltd. ("Goldrush" or the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with the following update of its current activities.
Goldrush holds ten exploration permits on strategically located properties covering over 1,543 square kilometres in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Burkina Faso has seen seven new gold mines open since 2007, and fourteen recent gold discoveries have been made. Burkina Faso, which is one of Africa’s most stable democracies, is the continent’s third largest state for gold exploration and the fourth largest for gold production.
Recent exploration success by Roxgold Inc. in the vicinity of Goldrush’s Pompoi pemit, along with successful drilling campaigns by True Gold Mining Inc. on its Karma project, the recently announced merger of Volta Resources Inc, with B2Gold Corp. and the recent financing of Orezone Gold Corporation all provide evidence of the immense exploration and investment potential in Burkina Faso.
In July 2012, with an effective date of May 18, 2012, Goldrush announced the filing on SEDAR of a technical report prepared in accordance with NI 43-101 on its Ronguen project titled "Mineral Resource Technical Report Ronguen Gold Project, Burkina Faso" by SRK Consulting (Canada) Inc." The report discloses that the deposit contains a 155,000 ounce Measured mineral resource (4.281 million tonnes at a grade of 1.12 g/t Au), 177,000 ounce Indicated mineral resource (4.206 million tonnes at a grade of 1.31 g/t Au), and 52,000 ounce Inferred mineral resource (890,000 tonnes at a grade of 1.85 g/t Au).
Goldrush personnel continue to collect baseline environmental data from the Ronguen gold deposit in order to support future Environmental and Social Impact Assessment studies. A decision to initiate a preliminary economic analysis ("PEA") of the Ronguen deposit has been delayed until early in the first quarter of 2014.
The Company continues to investigate alternatives for maximizing value for its exploration permits including financing future exploration through joint venture arrangements or by the sale of exploration permits.
At the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on December 16, 2013, Management of the Company will be requesting shareholder approval for, among other things, a Special Resolution to approve a consolidation of the common shares of the Company in order to make the Company’s shares more attractive to investors in any future financing which may be undertaken by the Company. While management believes that the Company’s immediate financing needs will be met by the sale or joint venture of some of the Company’s exploration permits, there is no guarantee that any such transactions will result or complete or that the proceeds of such transactions will be sufficient to meet the future cash requirements of the Company. In order to provide the Company with the greatest chance of attracting new financing, the Directors would like shareholder approval to consolidate the Company’s common shares on a 2:1 or 3:1 basis at the Directors’ discretion.
If market and economic conditions for the Company improve and the Company is able to raise substantial funds without a consolidation of its share capital, the Directors will not proceed with a consolidation. The Directors are seeking shareholder approval to the share consolidation at this time in order to save the cost of holding a separate special shareholders’ meeting in the future.
Mr. Driffield Cameron, P.Geo., Director of Goldrush, is the Qualified Person for this press release for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101, and has reviewed the technical information herein.
