CBS Marketwatch Co-Founder, Thom Calandra, Begins Acquiring LKA Gold Shares Calandra joins LKA shareholder list of gold investment specialists and early investors, Blanchard, Skousen and Casey.
GIG HARBOR, Wash., March 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- LKA Gold Incorporated (OTCQB:LKAI) announced that Thom Calandra, a widely recognized researcher and specialist in undervalued resource companies, recently revealed to his subscribers in the The Calandra Report that he would begin buying stock in LKA Gold.
According to Mr. Calandra, "I am going to purchase this one as soon as our TCR report goes out this minute…"
Mr. Calandra went on to point out that the initial exploration on LKA's Golden Wonder mine was funded through a tax-shelter limited partnership that included flamboyant gold investors such as Mark Skousen, the late James U. Blanchard III, and Doug Casey…..and they're still in it. Calandra said of LKA's high-grade, Colorado gold producer, "….looks like it might have another elusive ore shoot within its reach." Calandra cautions that, at present, "there is no established resource (commercial reserve) at LKA's Golden Wonder mine but the grades of exploratory ore that the mine is shipping are near or surpass 2 ounces per ton in many cases. During the good old days of 2005 and prior, and even on the occasional charged stringer, that ounces-per-ton measure has been in the teens. We'll see."

About LKA's exploration program at its Golden Wonder Mine
Vein material is extracted as crews follow the volcanic vent system along the wall of the Uncompahgre Caldera. This method of exploratory mining and underground drilling proved successful in locating the first commercial ore body which yielded more than 133,000 ounces of gold from a single ore chute measuring less than 10,000 cubic feet. From 1998, through the second quarter of 2006, the average grade of Golden Wonder ore was 16.01 ozs. (454 grams) gold per ton. LKA believes that additional such ore chutes may exist on its mining claims. Upon resuming exploratory operations in the first quarter of 2009, LKA has shipped twenty-seven bulk ore samples containing more than 4,000 ounces of gold with a net value, after processing, of over $4.2 million. The Company is continuing to evaluate financing options to expand/accelerate this program. Investors are cautioned that the Company continues to generate substantial losses and additional funding and exploration work is required. A commercially viable ore reserve has yet to be established.
