LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Nov. 17, 2011) - GolfGear International, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:GEAR) announces that it has finalized an agreement to acquire controlling interest in Western Sierra Mining Corp. (PINK SHEETS:WSRA). This acquisition of Western Sierra will provide GEAR with a strategic partner in the precious metals mining industry and will represent a major step forward for GEAR in its strategy of becoming a significant mining and ore processing company. GEAR will aggressively pursue the development of WSRA properties and look to acquire additional properties for WSRA to operate.

Western Sierra is a 1903 mining company focusing on exploration, mine development and operations. The Company performs independent and third party mine valuations, mine engineering, NI 43-101 services, investor certifications and contract mining.

The Company has several mine operating contracts in place.

Dale Geck, President of GolfGear International, stated, "The acquisition of Western Sierra will provide GEAR with a strong foothold in the mining community, allowing for the aggressive development of Arizona properties. This acquisition has created tremendous opportunity to expand operations, and gain valuable experience into the precious metals mining industry. Our plans are to leave current management in place, and rely on their relationships and experience to grow and develop opportunities for both GEAR and WSRA. With the acquisition of Western also comes the vast mining and business experience we need in moving forward. We anticipate that our acquisition of Western Sierra will be the first of many strategic relationships and acquisitions as we expand our operations in this industry."
