DRAPER, UT--(Marketwire - May 31, 2012) - Gold and GemStone Mining Inc. (OTCBB: GGSM), an alluvial gold and diamond exploration and development stage mining company focused on Sierra Leone, West Africa has today announced that its local Joint Venture partner has secured an additional 50 acres of surrounding concessions to its existing project Nimiyama situated in the Kono District.

The new extension agreement has been signed with the local paramount chief and extends the previous agreement increasing the existing 50 acre site up to a potential total of 100 acres of prime alluvial diamond and gold mining territory in the Nimiyama Chiefdom in the Kono District, the Country's prominent diamond and gold mining area.
