GTSO Resources (OTCQB: GTSO) signed a letter of intent with mining company Diamond V Associates, Inc., to acquire and develop precious metal and rare earth prospects in Alaska and Ghana. Diamond’s extensive mining experience makes the company a good fit for GTSO’s mission. Diamond’s President W. Kirk Bastian has been in the mining and excavation business for over 21 years. Diamond V Associates was founded to acquire and mine placer gold and rare earths in Alaska, and the company is now exploring prospects in the West African nation of Ghana, as well. Thanks to advances in technology and huge price increases since the target regions were first mined, returning to existing mines in areas such as Valdez Creek, Alaska, could prove lucrative to GTSO. The company believes Diamond will be a big help in targeting and acquiring mineral rights with the highest development potential. GTSO plans to begin evaluating Diamond’s precious metals and rare earth prospects immediately. According to the letter of intent, GTSO has 90 days to conduct due diligence toward a potential acquisition, joint venture or partnership with Diamond. GTSO plans to service a fast-growing global appetite for rare and precious metals to compete in an exciting sector that includes Goldcorp Inc. (NYSE: GG), Newmont Mining Corp. (NYSE: NEM), SPDR Gold Shares (NYSEArca: GLD) and Barrick Gold Corp. (NYSE: ABX).
