Update on Drilling Programme for the Homase licence area, Ghana

 

GoldStone Resources Limited (AIM: GRL), the West and Central Africa-focused gold exploration company quoted on AIM, is pleased to announce that the first-phase diamond drilling programme (three holes totalling 797 metres) on the Homase licence to explore the strike extensions of known ore shoots beneath the open pits that exploited higher-grade oxide material in 2001/02, has now been completed.

 

Initial examination of core indicates encouraging signs of gold mineralisation and the Company is awaiting assay results from the laboratory.  However, until the assays are received, no specific value, if any, can be attributed to these initial observations nor can it be determined at this stage whether the results will add to the existing JORC-compliant resource for Homase-Akrokerri of 602,000 oz gold.  The Company will provide an update as soon as the data becomes available.
