About GoldStone Resources Limited

GoldStone Resources Limited (AIM: GRL) is an AIM quoted gold exploration and production company. The Company commenced production at its wholly owned Homase Mine November 2021. When at full planned production of 2000oz pcm GRL expects an AISC of <USD600/oz at the Homase Mine.

Located 15km north-west of AngloGold Ashanti's Obuasi mine, in the mineral-rich and highly prospective Ashanti Goldbelt. Homase Mine is a series of shallow open pits producing approximately 25,000oz pa of gold, with a recently commissioned CIC treatment plant, for the Heap Leach operation. First gold was poured in November 2021, and the Company will be ramping up production during the first quarter 2022.

The Homase Mine holds a JORC Code compliant 602,000 oz gold resource at an average grade of 1.77 g/t. This is confined to a 4km strike length, which the Company plans to explore, along strike and down dip, in order to expand on the known resource. The mine was formerly operated by AngloGold Ashanti in 2002/03 producing 52,000 oz gold at 2.5 g/t recovered.

The Company also holds the former underground Akrokerri Ashanti Mine, which produced 75,000 oz gold at 24 g/t recovered grade in the early 1900s. It is the Company's intention to commence exploration of this former mine in the near future.
