Corporate Update

The destruction of asset value and fundamental trust that has rocked the financial markets since early September has created an unprecedented situation for all public companies. Against this tidal wave, there is very little that a junior mineral exploration company such as Goldrush can do to enhance shareholder value. Our assets, our exploration plans and the opportunity we provide to generate an exciting gold discovery are perceived by the current market to have little worth.

Our ability to raise additional exploration financing is severely limited in a world that has suddenly become very risk adverse and where banks, large corporations and governments are having difficulty raising capital.

Despite these facts, we believe that junior resource market will recover, albeit the timing for this recovery is currently unknown.

Until a recovery is underway, Goldrush has little choice but to adopt a defensive posture to ensure its survival, while leaving options open to capitalize on future opportunities. Our corporate mandate is premised on the following principles:

- we believe that gold will be a high value commodity in the future;

- we believe that the Ronguen gold resource is a valuable asset and has significant expansion potential;

- we must ensure that Goldrush's financial commitments are limited in order to ensure the continued viability of the Company without additional capital injections for at least the next nine months.

To reach our goal, we have taken the following steps:

- stopped all exploration work and will be releasing the Company's lower priority exploration permits in Burkina Faso;

- refocused our exploration efforts to the identification of prospective gold targets that may become available at a reduced price in the future;

- either renegotiated or cancelled all contracts for discretionary expenses;

- extended the term and reduced the exercise price of share purchase warrants held by third parties to provide a potential source of future funding;

- significantly reduced all management salaries and will eliminate some positions by year-end; and

- instituted a strict budget to ensure that all expenditures are minimized for the foreseeable future.

About Goldrush: Goldrush is a mineral exploration company focused on gold exploration in Burkina Faso, West Africa.
