The Graystone Company (OTCBB: GYST) announced that it has conducted preliminary testing on Graystone II. The Company has done preliminary testing on approximately 10-15% of Graystone II. The initial results indicate that the part of Graystone II that was tested may contain as much as 20,000 ounces of gold (or $32,000,000 at $1,600 per ounce). Once the testing and mapping of Graystone II is completed, the Company will have a plan for production for Graystone II.
"The initial testing on Graystone II has been successful," said Paul Howarth, CEO of The Graystone Company. "However, we need to continue to test the property and complete the feasibility study. We will conduct a feasibility study to determine how much of the property is economically minable. There will always be portions of projects that are not cost effective to mine. But to have such positive initial results this early into our projects is exciting and we are looking forward to moving these properties toward production."
The proximity of Graystone II with Gorilla will allow the Company to maximize its resources in the area and provide the Company with base of operations to mine both Gorilla and Graystone II.
