Goldrush has recently expanded and upgraded its resource at the Ronguen gold deposit in central Burkina Faso, providing an asset which is oxidized and amenable to low cost heap leach processing. Ronguen is located in the well endowed Boromo Greenstone Belt. The Boromo Belt contains a near-surface global estimated resource in excess of 13 million ounces of gold in seven of 17 deposits enumerated in the country.
Burkina Faso is a politically and economically stable West African democracy that relies on mining and farming as its primary sources of foreign exchange. The country has seen gold mining fluorish, with seven new mines coming to production since 2007, vaulting Burkina into the position of fourth largest gold producer in Africa in 2012, and the third largest site for gold exploration on the continent.
The securities being offered have not been, nor will they be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or state securities laws and may not be offered or sold within the United States or to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons absent U.S. federal and state registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements.
