Alto Group Holdings Announces Approval Expected on Bogue River Gold Exploitation License

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - February 14, 2011) -  Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALTO) ("Alto Group" or the "Company"), an innovative mining and commodities trade company headquartered in New York, announces the approval expected on Bogue river gold exploitation license.

Management has reported the approval from the ministry of mines in Mali is expected in the coming weeks on the Bogue river exploitation license and the additional 10 kilometer application to increase in the size of this gold rich property looks eminent. On November 29, 2010, the Company executed an agreement to acquire mineral rights of the Bogue River Dredge Concession from St Watson Mining in Mali, West Africa. The Bogue River Concession comprises a 10 kilometer long permit with 500 meter wide easement on both sides on the Bogue River in the Bougouni Region of Mali. Placer gold deposits in rivers occur during long periods of time, draining streams in gold mining areas to feed gold rich sediments eroded from the country rocks into rivers systems which can contain substantial amounts of gold. These river valleys can also be host to many levels of sedimentary terraces that contain gold bearing material which, with today's technology, can be successfully extracted at very economical rates with no chemical processes needed.


In December 2010, the Company acquired a Nessie N8DX cutter head dredge to be deployed in the Bogue River Concession, which is able to extract material at the rate of 100 yards per hour.

Although the dredge has not yet been put into operation, assuming that the Bogue River concession contains an average grade of 1 gram of gold per cubic yard (approximately $43.00 at the present bullion spot price), if the Company's dredge were to operate consistently for 12 hours per day for 30 days, the gross production potential of this dredge, and others that may be planned for the Bogue River Concession with similar operational and yield characteristics, could approximate over $1.5 million in gross revenue per month.
