Goldsource Mines, symbol GXS on the TSX Venture Exchange (FSE:G5M) has announced the results of its Preliminary Economic Assessment Technical Report for the company’s 100% owned Eagle Mountain gold project.

Eagle Mountain is a near-surface saprolite oxide resource located in Guyana, South America, approximately 230 kilometres southwest of the capital, Georgetown.

Conceptually, the PEA results suggest that the project has low capital and operating costs, minimized technical risk and a short development timeline.

Following are some highlights of the Base Case economic estimates, using a gold price $1,250 per ounce.

- Pre-tax Net Present Value of $69.4 million and after-tax NPV of $45.6 million, using a 5% discount rate

- Pre-tax NPV of $61.1 million and after-tax NPV of $39.8 million, using a 7% discount rate

- Pre-tax Internal Rate of Return of 84% and after-tax IRR of 63%

- Phase 1, pre-production capital costs of $5.9 million, includes a 15% contingency

- Total capital costs including proposed Phase II, III, and IV expansions, and sustaining capital are estimated at $24.2 million

- Cash operating costs, exclusive of sustaining capital, for saprolite mine life averages $480 per ounce gold, including a 15% contingency

- Cost per tonne of mill feed averages $8.96

- 8 year life of mine production estimates 168,700 ounces gold from gravity-only processing at estimated 60% recovery

Not considered in the PEA are the in-situ "fresh-rock" resources of Indicated 2,331,000 tonnes @ 1.52 grams per tonne gold containing 114,000 ounces and Inferred 13,433,000 tonnes @ 1.13 grams per tonne, containing 486,000 ounces, both at 0.5 grams per tonne cut-off.

For more detailed information, please refer to the company’s latest news release. The NI 43-101 Technical Report will be filed on Sedar.com within 45 days.

N. Eric Fier, Goldsource's Chief Operating Officer commented: "Through our experience, we have applied the responsible phased-approach business model to the Eagle Mountain gold project in order to minimize initial capital and project risk.

This conceptual approach encompasses a "Phase I" starter open cut for mining at 1,000 tonnes per day with subsequent low impact and low cost gravity-only processing.

Upon successful completion of Phase I, the Company plans to systematically install and operate three additional similar plants over a four-year schedule with a cumulative rate of 3,500 to 4,000 tonnes per day.

Conceptually, additional processing plants will be paid for through operating cash flow.

The project has several potential opportunities to accelerate PEA-defined production once initial success in Phase I is achieved."

The company does not presently have the funds to carry out these developments and plans to source the funds through equity or debt financing or a combination thereof.

Goldsource is trading at $0.26 and with 79.1 million shares outstanding, the company is capitalized at $20.6 million.
