Spokane, WA - April 3, 2013 - Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB: GRMC) (“Goldrich”) announces it has completed forward gold sales of approximately $600,000 at a 25% discount to market price as calculated on the date of sale. A total of approximately 500 ounces of gold was sold for delivery in November 2014. The forward gold sales contract contains standard terms regarding delivery and receipt of gold and payment of delivery costs. A finder's fee of 7% of the proceeds is payable to arm's length parties. Proceeds from the forward gold sales will be used primarily for general corporate purposes.
Gold production at Goldrich’s Chandalar property is expected to begin by mid-June. Goldrich NyacAU Placer, LLC (“GNP”), a 50/50 joint-venture company formed by Goldrich and NyacAU, LLC (“NyacAU”) and managed by NyacAU to mine Goldrich’s various placer properties at Chandalar, completed mine construction at Chandalar during 2012. Continued stripping of overburden and stockpiling of placer pay gravels is planned to begin by May 2013. Gold production will be approximately from mid-June to mid-September of each year. The production goal for 2013 is 8,500 ounces of fine gold and approximately 10,000 ounces per season thereafter. Total production could substantially increase if a second gold recovery plant is installed. All costs up to commercial production, are required to be funded by NyacAU and will be paid back from cash flow from gold production.
For each dollar of gold purchased, the purchaser will also receive one half of a common stock purchase warrant. Each whole warrant is exercisable to purchase one share of common stock of the Company at an exercise price of $0.40 for a period of two years following the date of issue. In the event that the Company’s shares of common stock trade in the United States at a closing price of greater than $1.00 per share for a period of 10 consecutive trading days at any time following the issuance of the warrants, the Company has the right to force exercise of the warrants.
