Clay Project: Gold, Diamonds

Kirkland Lake region, 1 mile from the 11 million ounce Kerr-Addison Gold Mine. Goldstake's best gold drill intersection is 33 grams/ton gold over 9 metres (0.95 ounces per ton over 29.5 feet) at a hole depth of 94.6 metres (E Gallo PGeo. NI 43-101 Report 2005).Goldstake has earned 60% of this 4,000 hectare project and may spend $885,000 by December 31, 2010 to acquire a further 15% for a total of 75% and pay an option extension fee of $75,000 for which Goldstake will issue 1,875,000 shares to Transpacific Resources Inc. (TPR) at 0 .04 per share, subject to TSX approval.

In addition to gold, Goldstake is exploring for kimberlite and diamonds on the Clay Property. Kimberlite indicator minerals occur in glacial till and stream gravels on the property and there are historic reports of several small diamond finds dating back to the early 80's. Goldstake has narrowed down the possible source areas for the kimberlite minerals by employing detailed ground magnetometer surveys, bulk till sampling, extensive microprobe analysis of kimberlite minerals and drill-tested several circular magnetic features on the property.

Home of Bullion (HOB): Copper, Lead, Zinc, Gold, Platinum Group Metals (PGMs)

HOB, located at Barrow Creek, NT, Australia, 50% ownership.

Historically estimated 309,000 tons at 13% copper (40,000 tons of copper metal) from surface to 95metres depth. (C. T. Madigan, PhD).

Previous production recorded 2,500 tons at 22.5% copper, hand-cobbed from total mined 10,000 tons (NT Mines Dept.).

Estimated 7,000 tons at 10% copper on surface.
