YALE (TSX-V:YLL and Frankfurt:YAB) AND SILVER AMERICA FINALIZE OPTION FOR GUADALUPE PROPERTY, ZACATECAS STATE – INITIAL FIELD PROGRAM FINISHED



April 30, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) Yale Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:YLL and Frankfurt:YAB) is pleased to report that it has signed a formal Agreement with Silver America Inc. (OTCBB – SILA) for the option to earn a 90% interest in Yale’s wholly owned Guadalupe Property located in Zacatecas State, Mexico. Yale has received a total of US$20,000 and 100,000 shares in Silver America.
To earn a 90% interest Silver America will be required to pay Yale US $ 900,000 cash, spend US $ 2,000,000 on exploration expenditures and issue 1,000,000 shares to Yale over four years.

Should the earn-in be completed Yale will retain a 10% participating interest in the property as well as a 2% NSR, which can be bought out in entirety for US $ 2,000,000.



In anticipation of the closing of the agreement, Yale personnel have recently finished a stage one exploration program on the Guadalupe property. The program consisted of geological mapping, locating the historic workings on the property, and sampling. 59 chip samples were taken from outcrops and within workings. To date, 25 vertical shafts have been identified within the property. These include the San Antonio and Santa Rosa mines, each reaching 270 metres in depth. The Mina Negra shaft has been measured to be in excess of 100 metres. All of these workings exploited at least 5 different veins that cross the property.


Results from this work program are pending.

Mining Stocks; Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON) Provides Update on Corporate Activities

Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON) Provides Update on Corporate Activities



MEDELLIN, COLOMBIA - April 30, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) - Tao Minerals Ltd. (Tao) (OTC.BB:TAON) is pleased to provide an update of its operations and corporate activities. In the past six months Tao has undergone a complete reorganization. This was done to provide more attractive financing options as the company moves forward focused on development and production at its El Colmillo Gold project. Market conditions for financing have improved and specifically recent successes by companies such as Ventana Gold Corp. have improved the financing prospects for other mining companies in Colombia. Tao will be providing an update of its financing activities in the near future.
The International Finance Corporation (IFC), an investment branch of the World Bank has identified Colombia as a primary target for mining investment because of the potential for substantial economic impact from the mining sector. The Colombian government has been recognized as one of the best pro-business reformers globally in recent years by the World Bank and with the country gaining economic stability, new legislation provides foreign investors with a high degree of legal protection and security.


Tao believes that the security situation at its El Colmillo gold project in Colombia has continually improved during the time frame under which the company has been reorganized. As previously announced on April 6, 2009 Tao was working with federal and local authorities to improve security in the area and specifically the El Colmillo Gold Mine. Local mayors and townspeople who were employed at the mine site have exerted considerable political influence on the Colombian government to clean up the situation with the guerrillas in the area and are encouraged by the response from all authorities involved. Significant progress has been made and subject to a third party security assessment Tao is poised to resume operations and move the project to the production stage. The project will provide local employment and plans are moving ahead to upgrade the roads to this remote area to allow federal security forces access to the mine site greatly improving response times should the company experience any further security issues.



Tao Minerals Ltd. is a mining exploration and development company formed to acquire, develop, and exploit natural resource properties focusing primarily on the rich, yet highly underdeveloped gold deposits of Colombia doing so in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.

Q&A Interview with Gold Stock Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCPK: SLTA); a History of an Argentina Gold Mine

Q&A Interview with Gold Stock Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCPK: SLTA); a History of an Argentina Gold Mine
Point Roberts, WA - April 29, 2010 - www.InvestorIdeas.com and its leading mining investor portals, www.Gold-MiningStocks.com and www.MiningSectorStocks.com release a Q&A interview Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCPK:SLTA.) FRANKFURT: SN7) for interested investors.
The Company recently reported it had entered into two agreements with the El Torno mineral title owner, which combined give Soltera the right to mine surficial gold at El Torno, in northern Argentina, in addition to certain exploration rights over a prospective gold & copper area, Sur Eureka.

Dr. Fabio Montanari has an international mining career for over twenty-five years, including senior experience spearheading advanced exploration and mining activities in Africa, South America, Europe, Canada and the United States for a host of internationally recognized exploration and mining companies including: Asarco (US), Golden Star (UK), ENI Group (Italy) and Normabec (CAN). Dr. Montanari has also been a geological consultant to the United Nations under the U.N. Technology Cooperation Schemes.


Q- Investorideas.com
Dr. Fabio Montanari, with your global experience in the mining community, investors would ask – why this location and this mine?

A- Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp
When I arrived in Argentina in 1996, I reviewed more than 45 mining projects on behalf of a junior mining company from Canada. The junior company decided on pursuing the most promising of these projects but, after the BRE-X crisis of 1997, they were obliged to leave Argentina because it was impossible at that time to obtain funding. The projects then became free and I began to search for investors because I really believed in the properties. These properties were El Torno (gold) and Eureka (gold-copper).

Argentina is a wonderful country. I am Italian and more than 50% of the people here are of Italian origin, which makes it easier for me, but anyway, you can not change the location of a mine: I have evaluated many other projects around the world but I had not found one more promising than El Torno.

Q- Investorideas.com
And following our first question, the El Torno Project is a past producing gold mine. Can you give investors some of its history and what has transpired to take the company to its current status as a gold producer?

A- Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp
The mine is very old. It was exploited by the Incas and Jesuits; the indigenous peoples knew of the gold in this area as it was easy to exploit.
More recently, the titleholder was crushing and concentrating the ore near the principal vein with a jaw crusher, a ball mill and a shaking table and was able to recover substantial amounts of gold.

When I started the project it seemed easy to raise funds for exploration so I did not attempt to immediately exploit. I am convinced that El Torno can be a world-class mine, and after the geochemical exploration results and the structural survey accomplished last year, it appears that we could be comparable in some ways to Cerro Vanguardia, the well known Anglo Ashanti gold mine in the south of Argentina.

After the crisis of 2008 it was difficult to raise funds for exploration, so I reached an agreement with the titleholder to exploit the eluvial part of the mine, which I am confident will be very inexpensive and productive. We intend to use part of the revenue generated from this surface mining to test the large-scale open-pit and underground targets that we have already identified. For example, the notes of the geological map of the province report that samples of the rock in the sides of the principal vein contain as high as 110 g/ton of gold. We will be testing the extent of this mineralization by geophysics, sampling and drilling.



Q- Investorideas.com
Can you tell investors what other mining companies (majors) are in the area for comparisons?

A- Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp
Rio Doce Argentina (CRVD Brazil owned) with more than 5 mining concessions, Minera Aguilar (Xstrata owned) with at least 2 concessions, Cardero Resources, Yamana Gold and other very large companies are on our license border. However, our El Torno property is the only one in the area with an historic gold mine. Our impressive neighbors have licenses over huge areas but without old gold or copper mines. I think they are hoping we might leave our concessions. In fact, back in the 1990’s Penoles and Codelco started exploration on our properties but failed to reach an agreement with the titleholder before their initial results proved so successful. Trying to negotiate terms after their results were in proved impossible. Good thing for us. I learned from their mistake and managed to negotiate our exploration agreement up front.



Q- Investorideas.com
As you transition to gold producer some key factors to success moving forward would include infrastructure in the surrounding area in addition to corporate funding. Can you tell us what is in place for the company today and plans moving forward?

A- Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp
We have a gravitational concentration plant in place and we recently restarted the plant to find it is in perfect condition ready to produce gold. We have a 6500 volt electricity line only 8 km from the actual plant and less than 5 km from the project; we have a river with perennial water at 200 meters from the plant and a big river, marking the border between Bolivia and Argentina 5 km to the north of our project.
Also, there is a vibrant long existing local gold trade allowing us to sell un-smelted gold directly from the eluvial project at very good rates. Everything we could need is right there. We are in Andes “gold country” after all. A bus line terminates at Santa Catalina Village only 11 km from the property. You can easily come to visit me on the project if you like.



Q- Investorideas.com
Based on the exploration work done to date, what is the potential for Soltera’s properties?

A- Dr. Fabio Montanari, President/COO of Soltera Mining Corp
The market does not respond much to geochemical prospecting, which is what I have been doing here for the past two years; but I have more than 20 years experience with this methodology and from what I have analyzed to date, the potential of the El Torno project is very big.

My short-term goal is to gain an immediate and self-sustaining source of revenue from the eluvial operation, but the real prize is in furthering exploration of the gold vein system as well as the large geochemical gold anomalies discovered last year. We are currently sourcing financing for this exploration work, but in the meantime we will have enough income to go it alone until funding is secured.


More info about Showcase Gold Mining Stock Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCPK: SLTA FRANKFURT: SN7):
Soltera Mining Corp. is a unique exploration company in the sense that it is following two distinct lines of action. The first is conventional, with exploration concentrated on two carefully selected gold and base metal projects in Argentina, particularly the large-scale El Torno gold project in Jujuy. The second, less conventional action is to finance immediate small-scale gold production from a specific section of the 14 km gold-quartz vein at El Torno.

Gold Stock Profile for Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON) at Investorideas.com

Gold Stock Profile for Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON) at Investorideas.com


Tao Minerals focuses on Gold Exploration in Columbia
Point Roberts WA, April 28, 2010 – (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) www.InvestorIdeas.com and its leading mining investor portals, www.Gold-MiningStocks.com and www.MiningSectorStocks.com announce the new profile for showcase gold stock Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON).

Showcase Gold Mining Stock Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON)

Tao Minerals Ltd. (OTCBB: TAON) is a junior exploration company based in Medellin, Colombia. Tao is successfully positioning itself as a leader in gold exploration in Colombia through key acquisitions of properties with exceptional potential for low extraction cost deposits. Tao's focus in calendar 2010 is on the upgrading and initiation of operations of its El Colmillo mine, which offers the potential to quickly provide a strong revenue stream, able to fund exploration activities on the estimated high grade gold deposit of its Golondrina property and finance additional acquisitions, while greatly enhancing shareholder value.

From the Profile :

http://www.investorideas.com/CO/TAON/

The Opportunity:

Colombia, for many years was a diamond in the rough, with known mineral reserves, oil and gas and coal has in recent years become the focus of the world in Latin America. Jumping a massive 42 positions in international ranking in three short years has brought foreign investment and tourism to the country for the first time in decades. A focus of President Alvaro Uribe, now in his second term, was to bring the world's attention to Latin America and especially Colombia. He has been publicly recognized as a supporter of the US war on drugs by continually implementing the anti-drug strategy of Plan Colombia, which infiltrates and shuts down the funding of guerilla terrorists. He is recognized as a supporter of the US war on terror. As well as the implementation of free trade agreements with the U.S and recently Canada, while maintaining generally positive diplomatic relations with Spain and most Latin American nations. These several points have all contributed to Colombia once being a considered a third world country to a new destination both for foreign investment and travelers in the international eye.



Mining Accounts for 20% of Colombian Exports, Rich in gold, silver, nickel copper and coal. Mining companies exported over $5.7 billion USD in 2007 .Having a GDP of $182 billion USD, an economy the size of Belgium's, and despite a worldwide recession, The IMF has predicted a 5% growth in 2010. Strong fundamentals encase the country, receiving growing attention from global investors. Foreign investment was up 373% between 2000-2007 despite a fluctuating and receding world economy. In recent years companies such as B2Gold Corp and Greystar Resources have had much success in past years, B2gold has extracted over 306 million tons of ore.



In 2009, demand for gold remained above the $US100 billion mark for the second year in succession against the backdrop of continued turbulence in financial and commodity markets. This resilience in demand was achieved in the context of average gold prices 12% higher than those in 2008, at $US972.35/oz. Investment demand for gold remained very strong in the second quarter of 2009, rising 46% on year earlier levels as investors continued a flight to quality. China's demand for gold will double in 10 years, making the country the world's second largest consumer of gold after India, the World Gold Council (WGC) has said. In 2009, gold consumption in China reached 462 tons, which was worth more than $14 billion, or 11 per cent of global demand. India is the largest consumer of gold in the world. Gold is a major vehicle of saving for large number of low and mid income households in rural and urban areas, out weighing china in 2009 by almost 20%. The gold industry in India employs about half a million people with a turnover more than US $20 billion. Almost all of India's gold demand is met by imports


The Properties:

The claim concession covers an area of over 296 hectares. Upon testing, two main veins consisting of milky white quartz have been found. The first apt fully named El Colmillo has a vein with a thickness between 0.20M and 3.2M with a distance of 300m with potential to extend for an additional 1.2 km from recognized faults and testing. The next vein named La Muela is located approximately 600 m to the west of El Colmillo. With a vein thickness of 0.1mand 0.5m the La Muela vein is of recognizable size as well. There are also other unnamed, but recognized veins on the property.



If only the two main veins El Colmilla and La Muela are considered, with both having regional continuity, assuming a grade average of 10/g/T gold and a down-dip continuation of mineralization for 300 m, the total gold content (assuming a grade average of 10 gr/ton) and normal disseminated wall rock mineralization, it is estimated that approximately 900,000 ounces of gold could be produced from. Current gross value of that ore is estimated to be $810 million at a gold value of $900US per ounce. No value has been placed on additional revenue from any additional commodities contained in the ore. The gross value can be increased significantly by the probability of the existence of additional sub parallel veins, as well as by continuity of all mineralized structures along strike both to the north and south of the known workings.

Investorideas.com - Barrick (NYSE:ABX; TSX:ABX) Reports Q1 2010 Financial and Operating Results

Investorideas.com - Barrick (NYSE:ABX; TSX:ABX) Reports Q1 2010 Financial and Operating Results


April 28, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks newswire)

FIRST QUARTER REPORT 2010
Based on US GAAP and expressed in US dollars

Highlights

Reported Q1 net income was a record $758 million ($0.77 per share). Adjusted Q1 net income rose 149% to $741 million ($0.75 per share)(1) from $298 million ($0.34 per share) in Q1 2009, reflecting higher production and sales in conjunction with lower total cash costs and higher realized prices for both gold and copper. Operating cash flow more than tripled to a record $1.05 billion from $349 million in the same prior year period.

Q1 gold production was up 19% to 2.08 million ounces at total cash costs of $442 per ounce or net cash costs of $342 per ounce(1), which were $42 per ounce and $62 per ounce below prior year period total cash costs and net cash costs, respectively. The Company is on track with its guidance to increase production in 2010 to 7.6-8.0 million ounces at lower total cash costs of $425-$455 per ounce or net cash costs of $345-$375 per ounce(2).

The Cortez Hills project was completed during the quarter on time and budget and contributed strongly to Q1 results. The entire Cortez property continues to be on track to achieve its original production guidance of 1.08-1.12 million ounces of gold in 2010 at total cash costs of $295-$315 per ounce. In mid-April, the U.S. District Court issued a decision allowing mining to continue at Cortez Hills (subject to certain restrictions on ore transportation and dewatering) pending completion of a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. The Company anticipates a Record of Decision will be issued by the Bureau of Land Management by year-end, at which point it is expected that the operation will revert to its original scope.


Construction of the Pueblo Viejo and Pascua-Lama projects is on schedule and expected to be in line with their respective pre-production capital budgets. At full capacity and combined with Cortez Hills, these projects are forecast to contribute about 2.4 million ounces(3) of annual production at low cash costs.

Barrick completed its acquisition of an additional 25% interest in the Cerro Casale project in Chile during the quarter for consideration of approximately $474 million and now owns a 75% interest in and has control of one of the world's largest undeveloped gold-copper deposits.
The initial public offering for African Barrick Gold plc ("ABG"), which holds Barrick's previously held African gold mining operations and exploration properties, closed in March and the shares of ABG were admitted to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities. Total net proceeds of the offering were $882 million. Barrick currently holds an approximate 74% interest in ABG.
Barrick continues to maintain a strong financial position and the industry's only 'A' credit rating with quarter-end cash of $3.5 billion, an undrawn credit facility of $1.5 billion, robust operating cash flow and excellent access to debt markets.


Q1 production of 2.08 million ounces of gold was 19% higher at total cash costs of $442 per ounce which were 9% or $42 per ounce lower than the same prior year period, primarily due to strong performances from Lagunas Norte, Veladero and Cortez Hills. Net cash costs of $342 per ounce were 15% or $62 per ounce below the prior year period. The realized gold price for the quarter was $1,114 per ounce(4), $5 per ounce above the average spot price of $1,109 per ounce. Cash margins increased to 60% or $672 per ounce(4) from 47% or $431 per ounce in Q1 2009. Net cash margins increased to 69% or $772 per ounce(4) from 56% or $511 per ounce in the same prior year period.

Q1 adjusted net income rose 149% to $741 million ($0.75 per share), reflecting higher production and sales in conjunction with lower total cash costs and higher realized prices for both gold and copper, compared to adjusted net income of $298 million ($0.34 per share) in Q1 2009. Reported Q1 net income of $758 million ($0.77 per share) before net adjustments of $17 million was a Company record. Q1 operating cash flow more than tripled to a record $1.05 billion compared to $0.35 billion in the same period a year ago.

"We had a good start to the year with our operations performing well, and when combined with higher metal prices, the result was record earnings and operating cash flow for the quarter," said Aaron Regent, Barrick's President and CEO. "We are particularly pleased with the performance of our Cortez property. The Cortez Hills project was completed on time and budget, and the recent decision of the District Court in Nevada will allow it to continue operating. Cortez Hills is an impressive deposit and in 2010 the Cortez property will produce about 1.1 million ounces of gold at total cash costs of about $300 per ounce.

Rye Patch Gold Corp. (OTC:RPMGF; TSX.V:RPM) Presents Nevada Project Update and Commences Drilling Program at Wilco

Rye Patch Gold Corp. (OTC:RPMGF; TSX.V:RPM) Presents Nevada Project Update and Commences Drilling Program at Wilco

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - April 28, 2010 (http://www.investorideas.com/ Mining Stocks Newswire) - Rye Patch Gold Corp (TSX VENTURE:RPM; OTC.BB:RPMGF; "Rye Patch Gold") is pleased to announce an update on its Nevada project portfolio. Exploration budgets totalling US$1.4M are planned and the hunt for another major Nevada acquisition is underway.

Wilco Project
The Company announces the commencement of a Spring drilling campaign at its 100% controlled Wilco project located on the Oreana trend in West Central Nevada. The campaign will complete up to 5,000-metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling to test high-grade feeder zones in the North Basin target area and drill a new pediment target. The North Basin drillholes will have a nominal depth of 400-metres, and have been sited based on the new information gleaned from the last years drill program. The drillholes will test the newly identified structural zones for high-grade gold and silver.

In addition, exploration drilling will be initiated on the Woolsey pediment target located in the northern portion of the Wilco property. This target is outboard of an altered silicified siltstone ridge with surface rock chip and soil gold anomalies and is covered by thin veneer of pediment gravels. The altered and mineralized siltstone lithology lies above the main contact zone identified in the Section Line and Willard discovery areas. This contact has not been drilled by past operators. On and adjacent to the pediment, elevated gold and mercury values have been established and a gravity geophysical survey shows shallow pediment gravel cover. Rye Patch controls the private land where the Woolsey target is located. The Woolsey anomaly has size required for another substantial near-surface oxide deposit with significant upside potential.



In addition, drillhole composites from the 2007, 2008 and 2009 drilling campaigns will be selected for metallurgical test work on the Section Line discovery zone. Oxidized material in the drillholes covers a rectangular area measuring 1,800 metres by 1,100 metres (6,000 feet by 3,600 feet) in a series of multiple stacked zones. Rye Patch is in the process of selecting a third party to manage and complete the metallurgical test work.


The drilling and metallurgical test work will be part of an estimated US$500,000 exploration program.

Lincoln Hill Project
At Lincoln Hill, Rye Patch is completing the first ever NI43-101 resource estimate for the project. The Company has sent the geologic model and drillhole information to Scott E. Wilson Consulting who is completing the resource estimate. The Lincoln Hill resource estimate will be the Company's third Nevada gold resource property.



Following completion of the resource estimate, a drilling campaign will be designed. The drill program will have the goal of infilling and expanding the new resource. An exploration program totalling US$500,000 is planned.


Gold Ridge Project

The Gold Ridge project has several early-stage gold zones that require follow up. This early stage work will be completed during the summer with the purpose of identifying new drill targets on the property. The 100% owned Gold Ridge property covers 12 square kilometers prospective ground along the Oreana trend. The exploration work program will define drill targets. An initial targeting budget totalling US$100,000 is envisioned.



Jessup Project
The Jessup project has several targets that show potential for higher grade gold and silver associated with structural controlled breccias and breccia pipes. The targets were identified during the 2008 drill program which delineated higher grade gold and silver within breccias at the San Jacinto and North Jessup resource areas. These targets will be prioritized for a possible 2010 drill campaign. While final cost estimates are not complete, an exploration program totalling US$300,000 is planned.

Finally, the Company is reviewing and updating its proprietary Nevada acquisition list. The Company has identified several major Nevada opportunities that it intends to pursue. One or more of these trend-scale acquisitions could give Rye Patch investors the possibility to participate in a major Nevada gold opportunity.

As released on May 11, 2009 and on June 2, 2009 for the Wilco and Jessup projects respectively, Rye Patch Gold's resource inventory has 1,164,000 ounces of gold and gold equivalent in the measured and indicated category plus 2,177,315 ounces of gold and gold equivalent in the inferred category. The table summarizes Rye Patch Gold's precious metal inventory in Nevada, USA.

The Company also announces the termination of Lindsay Malcolm, as Manager Corporate Development, effective immediately.

Mining Stocks; Inmet (TSX:IMN) Announces First Quarter Earnings of $1.42 Per Share Compared With Earnings of $1.06 Per Share in the First Quarter of 2009.

Mining Stocks; Inmet (TSX:IMN) Announces First Quarter Earnings of $1.42 Per Share Compared With Earnings of $1.06 Per Share in the First Quarter of 2009.


Toronto, Canada – ( http://www.investorideas.com/ mining stocks newswire) Inmet (TSX:IMN) announces first quarter earnings of $1.42 per share compared with earnings of $1.06 per share in the first quarter of 2009.

First quarter highlights

-- Higher metal prices

Higher copper and zinc prices increased sales by $55 million compared to the same quarter of 2009. In 2009, prices were negatively impacted by the global financial crisis.-- Improvement in operating cash flow Operating earnings were higher this quarter compared to the first quarter of 2009, and outflows of working capital were lower. In the first quarter of 2009, we had to return $48 million to smelters for finalization adjustments for shipments made in 2008.-- Higher zinc production and lower gold production Zinc production was higher because grades at Pyhasalmi were higher. Production of gold was significantly less as Troilus continued to wind down operations, drawing all of its feed from its low grade stockpile. Troilus is expected to process the last ore from stockpiles in June.-- Higher earnings from operations Earnings from our operations were $111 million compared to $93 million

last year. This was a 19 percent increase despite Troilus contributing

$43 million less.-- Las Cruces progressing on commissioning plan Las Cruces produced 4,500 tonnes of copper in the quarter, which was less than our targets for cathode production in the first quarter. Metal recoveries and cathode quality have been excellent. We successfully completed a planned 15 day shut down on March 30 to improve plant reliability, however, exceptional rainfalls in Andalucia meant we could not access the open pit for ore until April 22, which was about one month later than we had originally planned. In the mean time the plant had been processing low quality ore with high sand and clay content that had been stockpiled in the early stages of mining. With ore haulage from the pit now resumed, we will proceed with our commissioning plan. Although we are encouraged by the improvements in the plant and confident that we are on the right track, we require a period of continuous operation with representative ore from the pit to accurately predict the timing of achieving our performance targets.-- Significantly increased mineral reserves and resources at Cobre Panama On March 31, 2010, we announced the results of the front end engineering and design (FEED) study for Cobre Panama. The study showed a significant increase in mineral reserves and resources making Cobre Panama one of the largest undeveloped copper porphyry deposits in the world. Design parameters of the project have also improved considerably due to extensive environmental, social and engineering work and, the project's output and size have been expanded by 25 percent. Substantial progress has also been made in advancing our financing strategy. LS-Nikko confirmed it would retain its 20 percent equity option interest and we continue meeting with other potential partners for the project.-- We issued 9.3 million subscription receipts for gross proceeds of $500 million

On March 31, 2010, we entered into a subscription agreement with a subsidiary of Temasek Holdings (Private) Limited (Temasek), under which Temasek has agreed to buy 9.26 million subscription receipts, exchangeable on a one-for-one basis for Inmet common shares, for total proceeds of $500 million. We issued the subscription receipts on April 23, 2010 and the proceeds are being held in escrow until certain conditions relating to the share exchange are met.

Regional Operations



In the first quarter of 2010, the Company reported equity gold production of 1.3 million ounces at costs applicable to sales of $480 per ounce on a co-product basis, in line with management's expectations. Costs applicable to sales per gold ounce increased 11% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to higher mining and milling costs and lower production in Nevada and at Yanacocha in Peru.



North America



Nevada – Nevada produced 433,000 equity ounces of gold at costs applicable to sales of $610 per ounce during the first quarter. Equity gold production met expectations and costs applicable to sales were slightly higher than expected due to lower by-product credits, higher underground mining costs and higher production taxes. Gold ounces produced decreased 16% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower grade, throughput and recovery. Costs applicable to sales per ounce increased 20% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower production and higher surface mining costs related to geotechnical issues at Gold Quarry and lower capitalized mine development activities.



The Company continues to expect 2010 equity gold production from Nevada of approximately 1.6 to 1.7 million ounces at costs applicable to sales of between $590 and $630 per ounce.



La Herradura – Equity gold production at La Herradura in Mexico during the first quarter was 40,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of $344 per ounce. Equity gold production was slightly higher than expected and costs applicable to sales were lower than expected due to higher leach placement and production from the new Soledad and Dipolos deposits. Gold ounces produced increased 60% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to the commencement of production from the Soledad and Dipolos pits in January 2010. Costs applicable to sales per ounce decreased 11% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to higher production.



The Company expects La Herradura equity gold production to reach 140,000 to 150,000 ounces in 2010 with costs applicable to sales of between $400 and $430 per ounce.



South America



Yanacocha – Equity gold production during the first quarter at Yanacocha in Peru was 217,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of $372 per ounce. Equity gold production was lower than expected due to lower leach production partially offset by higher mill production. Costs applicable to sales were higher than expected due to higher milling costs, lower leach production, higher royalties and lower by-product credits. Gold ounces produced decreased 15% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower mill grade and recovery combined with lower leach tons placed related to mine sequencing. Costs applicable to sales per ounce increased 15% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower production, higher waste mining and higher costs related to maintenance, workers' participation and royalties.



The Company continues to expect 2010 equity gold production at Yanacocha of between 750,000 and 810,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of between $360 and $400 per ounce.

Asia Pacific



Boddington – As the Company continues to ramp-up to full production at Boddington, equity gold and copper production during the first quarter was 158,000 ounces and 14 million pounds, respectively, at costs applicable to sales of $532 per ounce ($436 per ounce on a by-product basis(3)) and $2.15 per pound.



The Company continues to expect 2010 equity gold production at Boddington of 800,000 to 875,000 ounces with costs applicable to sales of $375 to $395 per ounce on a co-product basis ($295 to $315 per ounce on a by-product basis) and 2010 equity copper production of 65 to 75 million pounds at costs applicable to sales of between $1.30 and $1.45 per pound.



Batu Hijau – Equity gold and copper production during the first quarter at Batu Hijau in Indonesia were 88,000 ounces and 76 million pounds, respectively, at costs applicable to sales of $215 per ounce and $0.67 per pound, respectively. Equity gold and copper production were in line with expectations and costs applicable to sales were slightly better than expected due to lower mining costs and a lower allocation of costs to gold. Copper and gold produced increased 79% and 181% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009, respectively, due to higher throughput and grade as a result of mining in the bottom of Phase 5. Costs applicable to sales decreased 25% and 47% for copper and gold, respectively, in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to higher production and lower mining costs.



The Company expects 2010 equity gold and copper production at Batu Hijau to decrease to between 365,000 and 400,000 ounces, and to between 270 and 295 million pounds, respectively, due to the 2009 7% share divestiture completed in March 2010. The Company's current economic interest at Batu Hijau is 48.5%. The Company continues to expect 2010 costs applicable to sales of between $265 and $285 per ounce and $0.75 and $0.85 per pound.



Other Australia/New Zealand - Equity gold production during the first quarter was 276,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of $558 per ounce. Equity gold production was in line with expectations as higher production at Kalgoorlie was offset by lower production at Tanami. Costs applicable to sales were slightly higher than expected due to the stronger Australian dollar. Gold ounces produced decreased 10% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009, due to lower production at Tanami, Jundee and Waihi, partially offset by increased production at Kalgoorlie. Production decreased due to lower grade at Tamami, Jundee and Waihi and lower throughput as a result of mill maintenance at Tanami. Production increased at Kalgoorlie due to higher grade and throughput. Costs applicable to sales per ounce increased 13% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower production and the stronger Australian dollar.



The Company continues to expect 2010 equity gold production at the Company's other Australia/New Zealand operations of between 1.06 and 1.16 million ounces at costs applicable to sales of $530 to $570 per ounce.



Africa



Ahafo – Equity gold production during the first quarter at Ahafo in Ghana was 120,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of $542 per ounce, in line with expectations. Gold ounces produced decreased 8% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower grade and recovery, partially offset by higher throughput. Costs applicable to sales per ounce increased 36% in the first quarter of 2010 from 2009 due to lower production and higher labor and fuel costs.



The Company continues to expect 2010 equity gold production at Ahafo of between 460,000 and 500,000 ounces at costs applicable to sales of $515 to $555 per ounce.



Capital Update



Consolidated capital expenditures were $309 million during the first quarter. The Company is maintaining its 2010 consolidated capital expenditure outlook of between $1.4 and $1.6 billion with approximately 30% to be invested in each of the North America and Asia Pacific regions, and the remaining 40% at other locations. Approximately 40% of 2010 consolidated capital expenditures is expected to be related to major project initiatives, including further development of the Company's Akyem project in Ghana, the Conga project in Peru, Hope Bay in Canada and other projects, while the remaining 60% is expected to be for maintenance and sustaining expenditures.



Updated 2010 Outlook(4)



In addition to the minor production outlook adjustments related to the recent Batu Hijau share divestiture, the Company is increasing outlook for Advanced Products and R&D spending to $230 to $250 million. The increase is primarily related to higher anticipated spending at Hope Bay as preparations are being made to develop the decline in the second half of 2010.

Soltera Mining Locks In Production Deal Offering Near-Term Revenues and Long-Term Opportunity

Lisa Springer, CFA

Equity research analyst and financial writer

Excerpt:

Soltera plans to commence full production of elluvial gold from El Torno within two months and targets 2,000 ounces of production in its first year, potentially worth more than US$2 million at current gold prices. Assuming this level of production is achieved, Soltera could earn a very healthy return on a US$150,000 upfront payment, rental payments totaling US$200,000 (deductible from a final buy-out), and production costs estimated at approximately $350,000 annually.

Showcase Gold Mining Stock Soltera Mining Corp. (OTCPK: SLTA FRANKFURT: SN7):

Soltera Mining Corp. is a unique exploration company in the sense that it is following two distinct lines of action. The first is conventional, with exploration concentrated on two carefully selected gold and base metal projects in Argentina, particularly the large-scale El Torno gold project in Jujuy. The second, less conventional action is to finance immediate small-scale gold production from a specific section of the 14 km gold-quartz vein at El Torno.

Gold Bullion (TSX-V: GBB) Outlines Large Mineralized System at Granada

Gold Bullion (TSX-V: GBB) Outlines Large Mineralized System at Granada

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - April 23, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining stocks Newswire) Mr. Frank J. Basa reports:

Gold Bullion Development Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GBB; PINK SHEETS:GBBFF; the "Company" or "Gold Bullion") is pleased to announce significant progress in the development of its 100% owned Granada Gold Property as a potential bulk tonnage, open-pit deposit. The Granada Gold Property ("Granada") is located five kilometers south of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec, along the prolific "Cadillac Trend" which has produced numerous multi-million ounce gold deposits.


The 5 Stocks to Own in 2010 -- Free Report!A Preliminary Block Model, which excludes the recent discovery in the northeast section of the LONG Bars Zone, has outlined a gold mineralized system at Granada that offers a potential resource of 2.4 to 2.6 million ounces. This figure represents a defined area with a strike length of 600 metres, a width of 500 metres at an angle of 50 degrees from horizontal, and an average true thickness of 70 metres.
The potential resource of 2.4 to 2.6 million ounces is derived from an average of 55 million tonnes (using a 40 to 100 metre true thickness gives 30 to 80 million tonnes respectively) of potential gold mineralization at a specific gravity of 2.65 tonnes per cubic metre grading 1.38 g/t Au to 1.46 g/t Au (a 15% dilution factor was applied to the bulk sample grade of 1.62 g/t Au and a weighted bulk sample/waste pile grade of 1.72 g/t Au). These potential dimensions, quantities and grades are conceptual in nature and there has been insufficient work to date to define a National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resource on the property. Furthermore, it is uncertain if additional exploration will result in the discovery of an economic mineral resource on the property. The above-quoted figures are reported as an exploration target, based on reasonable assumptions made from compiled data. The figures should not be construed to reflect a calculated resource (inferred, indicated or measured) under standards of National Instrument 43-101.



Historical data consisting of approximately 26,000 metres of drilling in 471 near-surface holes and developed underground workings were integrated by GENIVAR, Gold Bullion's geological consultant, with some of the Company's recent drilling as well as its 30,000 tonne surface bulk sample from 2007 to produce the Preliminary Block Model.



Granada is a sediment-hosted, structurally controlled mesothermal gold deposit. It is underlain by late Archean Timiskaming and Pontiac Group sediments that have been intruded by a series of porphyritic sills and dykes. A wide zone of sub-parallel shears, characterized by intense alteration and quartz veining, has been identified adjacent to the Cadillac Fault - a major focus for large gold deposits in Quebec - which traverses the northern part of the property. Historic mining operations at Granada concentrated on high grade, more continuous quartz veins, but wider, structurally controlled zones of gold mineralization have been identified within the shear systems that are amenable to open- pit, bulk mining methods.



"Our strategic and systematic exploration approach with Granada is proving successful," explains Gold Bullion's President & CEO, Frank J. Basa. "We did a very large bulk sample prior to any of our own drilling to determine grade and gain other valuable geological information. We then did a small 2,800 metre shallow drill program in December 2009 and January 2010 to test for structure and confirm the dimensional validity of the Block Model. Now we're ready to extensively drill this property for grade and tonnage."

"The progress we have made since December at Granada is extremely encouraging," adds Basa. "The Block Model gives us a strong foundation to build on. Our objective moving forward includes extending the mineralized system and completing in-fill and definition drilling in preparation for an updated Block Model by the fall and a preliminary resource calculation by year-end that will be NI 43-101 compliant. Granada has excellent potential to develop into a very large bulk tonnage deposit, surrounded by all the necessary infrastructure and amenable to open-pit mining. Gold Bullion is in its strongest cash position ever and we will use this new financial strength to aggressively develop this property beginning with a major new drill program that will commence shortly."



Northeast Discovery
As exploration at Granada resumes, an immediate priority is substantial further drilling in the northeast section of the LONG Bars Zone where previously reported holes GR-10-15 (north) and GR-10-17 (east) outlined a significant discovery of shallow depth mineralization approximately 600 metres east-northeast of the past producing Granada Pit #1 mine workings and outside the Preliminary Block Model. The Company will complete infill drilling around holes 14 to 18 and aggressively move further north and east in order to define and expand this potential new resource. Gold Bullion's exploration to date in the northeast area, along with historical work that included detailed ground geophysics and geological mapping, has outlined a number of significant auriferous structures contained within a wide, east-west trending zone of shearing, alteration and quartz veining north and east of the Block Model.



The Company has received assay results on the remaining two shallow holes in the northeast area. GR- 10-18, located approximately 125 metres southwest of GR-10-17, intersected 19 metres of 1.02 grams per tonne. GR-10-16, 100 metres west-southwest of GR-10-17, assayed 0.54 grams per tonne over 7.3 metres. Drilling intersected impressive structure and alteration in both holes and confirmed the continuity of mineralization along strike.



Southwestern Extension Discovered
In other drilling highlights, GR-10-21 - 50 metres outside the western boundary of the Block Model and nearly 800 metres southwest of GR-10-17 - has returned 20 metres of 2.2 g/t Au at shallow depth (3.50 metres to 23.5 metres) within a wider interval of 65.6 metres grading 0.72 g/t Au. The Company is eager to conduct substantial additional drilling west and south of GR-10-21 to further extend the LONG Bars Zone.



GR-10-13, 125 metres east-northeast of GR-10-21 and in between Pit #1 and Pit #2 West, intersected 27.75 metres grading 1.27 g/t Au within a wider interval of 0.56 g/t Au over 66 metres (from 3.50 to 69 metres).


All drill holes were planned to intercept the north-dipping vein structures at high angles. No intersections are actual true width.



Complete preliminary assay results from all 25 holes (2,817 metres) of Gold Bullion's Phase 1 shallow drill program at Granada can be found at the Company's web site (www.GoldBullionDevelopmentCorp.com) along with the Preliminary Block Model and drill hole locations. Core sections from some holes have yet to be assayed.



With silver, copper and nickel credits in Gold Bullion's 2007 bulk sample, as already reported, and some further evidence of silver and base metal mineralization in a few of the 25 holes drilled so far at Granada, the Company will be assaying all future drill holes for base metal and silver values and will also be re- assaying historical core for evidence of copper, nickel and silver.



Gold mineralization at Granada, which has been encountered in each and every hole drilled by Gold Bullion so far, is open in all directions. It is near-surface and appears to be broad-based, extending into areas that were never drilled by previous operators. Gold Bullion's 30,000 tonne bulk sample in 2007 also clearly demonstrated that mineralization at Granada is amenable to conventional, very cost effective gold recovery techniques with a high rate of recovery (90%).



Gold Bullion recently announced it had more than doubled its Granada Gold Property land package with the designation of an additional 2,812 hectares with the Quebec Ministry of Natural Resources. The Granada Gold Property now comprises 4,893 hectares, a nearly 70-fold increase from the original 71 hectares the Company started with at the former producing Granada Gold Mine in 2006.



Given Granada's strong potential to host a significant bulk tonnage, open-pit deposit, the Company has expanded and accelerated its exploration plans beginning with 20,000 metres of immediate new drilling. This work will commence within two weeks with one drill rig already scheduled to be on the property by May 1.

Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB:TMBXF) Initiates 2010 Drill Program

Tombstone Exploration Corporation (OTCBB:TMBXF) Initiates 2010 Drill Program



Phoenix, AZ – April 20, 2010 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) – Tombstone Exploration Corp. (OTC.BB: TMBXF) announced today that the Company initiated its drilling program during the week of April 12th. Two targets have been drilled to date and both have intersected mineralized zones.

Tombstone is utilizing a portable x-ray diffraction (XRF) machine to get on-site reading of metal levels in the drill cuttings. These results help the exploration team manage the drilling program. Tombstone's property is underlain by Uncle Sam porphyry and units of the Bisbee Group. Mineralized fissures strike consistently northeast, and many of the fissures exhibit consistent orientation for hundreds of feet along strike. Many fissures have parallel orientations, forming fissure sets.


The main mines in this area occur along these northeast-striking fissures. The State of Maine mine occurs in fissures that cut both Bisbee sediments and Uncle Sam porphyry. These structural mineralized fissures are the primary focus of the current exploration program.

Steven J. Radvak, P.E., Vice President of Exploration of Tombstone, commented, "This drilling program has already intercepted two distinct mineralized zones and is targeting additional zones as well. Results to date are positive and indicate that these zones will warrant additional drilling. XRF results for silver are encouraging and we expect to see corresponding results for gold."

Alan Brown, CEO of Tombstone, commented, "The 2010 Drill Program is well on its way to meeting our expectations that mineable silver, gold, copper and other minerals will come from the assay results of this year's drill program."



Tombstone Exploration Corporation (TMBXF) is focused primarily on exploration and development of mineral resources. Tombstone Exploration Corporation has the mineral rights to approximately 11,500 acres of historical mining land in the areas around Tombstone, Arizona and is the largest landholder in the Tombstone Mining District.
