AU Goose Using New Dry Recovery System to Test Two Placer Claims

Initial tests show promise for both gold and silver ore

Reno, NV, February 19, 2010 --( The owners of two placer claims in Virginia City, Nevada have chosen AU Goose to conduct testing of approximately 150 tons of tailings. Preliminary extractions through AU Goose’s new dry, non-toxic recovery system have already indicated the presence of both gold and silver ore.

“We’re very excited about using AU Goose,” said Josh Gann, owner and operator of Placer Claims Peyton’s Place #1 and Ellen’s Place #2. “For more than 10 years I’ve been researching cost-effective and environmentally-friendly recovery methods without finding anything that works. The AU Goose solution works, and it’s going to help a lot of prospectors with properties they’ve been unable to recover in the past.”

Gann’s partner, Wes Byrd, agrees. “Au Goose’s system will also make the permitting process much easier and make it possible for many mines to start operating profitably, which in turn creates new jobs.”

AU Goose unveiled the industry’s first modular, dry, non-toxic recovery system for both lode and placer ores late 2009. Each production concentrator can process pre-crushed ore at a rate of up to two tons per hour and generates a 2-to-1 concentration ratio. A secondary concentrator processes about half a ton per hour and generates a 10-to-1 concentrate, rich enough for smelting for many ores. The final concentrator eliminates up to 90 percent of non precious metal material, making it ready for smelting, and in some cases, direct firing.
