About Goldstone

Formed by a late 2009 merger of Ontex Resources and Roxmark Mines, Goldstone Resources is a gold exploration and development company operating in the historically significant Geraldton- Beardmore camp of Northwestern Ontario and focused on gold exploration and deposit delineation at its Key Lake, Brookbank, Northern Empire and Leitch-Sand River gold properties, and as a partner in the Hardrock Project joint venture with Premier Gold Mines Limited. The camp is host to several past producers in a district that has historical production of more than 4.1 million ounces of gold from high grade ore before being shut down primarily as a result of a $35 gold price—and to Goldstone's fully permitted, expandable 200-TPD Northern Empire mill.
