Goldrich Reports Purchase of Chandalar Royalty

Aug 13, 2012, 12:06 ET from Goldrich Mining Company

SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Goldrich Mining Company (OTCBB - GRMC) ("Goldrich") is pleased to report Goldrich NyacAU Placer, LLC ("GNP"), a 50/50 joint-venture company formed by Goldrich and NyacAU, LLC. ("NyacAU") has purchased a 2% royalty interest payable on all production from certain Goldrich mining claims at the Chandalar, Alaska property for $250,000 from Jumbo Basin Corporation.

Bill Schara, CEO of the Company said, "We are very glad to see the project progress to this point. NyacAU has done an excellent job as manager in moving the project along."

In the operating agreement for GNP between Goldrich and NyacAU, NyacAU was granted an option to lend GNP $250,000 to purchase the royalty. NyacAU exercised the option in anticipation of beginning early production in August this year. Full-scale commercial production is expected to begin by June 2013. The Company estimates eventual production of approximately 10,000 ounces of fine gold per season, but this could be significantly increased if a second gold recovery plant is placed in service. Goldrich has not defined a mineral reserve according to SEC Industry Guide 7 criteria. However, based on drilling of the placer deposit to date and the anticipated production rate, Goldrich estimates the mine life will be approximately 25 years. The placer deposit is open to drilling in three directions and Goldrich believes the mine life may be significantly extended with additional drilling.

The loan to GNP for the royalty will carry interest at the greater of prime plus 2% or 10% and will be repaid from Goldrich's portion of production. Goldrich will also have the exclusive right to purchase the royalty at any time. The royalty will be extinguished upon payback of the loan or purchase by Goldrich.
