The Graystone Company Announces Update On Mining Operations

Stocks in this article: GYST

The Graystone Company (OTCQB: GYST) announced that last week it produced in excess of four (4) ounces of gold or approximately 25 grams a day. The Company expects the gold to be approximately 85%-88% pure based on the Company’s bulk sampling testing.

Additionally, the Company has begun to map the location for its second System. The Company expects to have the second System up and running early next year.

Company’s Expected Production

The Company expects to mine 22 days per month and to generate between 15 – 20 grams per day. The Company expects to increase its number of Systems by approximately 1 per quarter beginning in 2013. The Company also expects to increase its gold recovery to 50 grams per day per System with the addition of heavier equipment such as an excavator and trammel and/or sluice box.

The Company expects to recover approximately 850 – 900 ounces of gold in 2013 for revenue of approximately $1,000,000. The Company expects to recover approximately 2,000 ounces of gold in 2014 for revenue of approximately $2,500,000.

The Company expects the monthly expenses (monthly burn rate) associated to each system to be approximately $20,000 - $25,000. The Company expects the initial capital expenditures for each system to be approximately $100,000 and up to $250,000 with heavier equipment. These expenses include the costs of the employees, food, gasoline, diesel, oil, grease, soda ash, travel, security, repairs to equipment, machine parts, and miscellaneous supplies. The Company expects its breakeven point to be approximately 20 grams of gold per day depending on the purity levels, refining fees and easement costs. The Company expects it cost will decrease in relation to the amount of grams produced as larger equipment comes on site and the Company becomes more efficient in its operations.
