The Mineral Reserve Statement was prepared by Robert G.

Carrington provided a Certificate of qualifications and independence from GoldSpring, Inc. and Plum Mining, LLC. He holds a degree in Economic Geology from the Mackay School of Mines and Geology, University of Nevada, Reno, NV and has over 25 years of experience in the Comstock Lode District. He has been continuously involved in Plum Mining's properties since 1983-84 as VP of Exploration for Alta Exploration and in 1993 when he applied for patent on Billie The Kid.
Carrington reports that "the Reserve inventory for all classes reported on herein, stands at 2,437,082 tons with an average grade of 0.0627 ounces of gold per ton and 1.52 ounces of silver per ton." He footnotes as follows: "Historical mining of 125,000 tons in 1993 from Lucerne pit showed the actual grade of mined material placed on the heap leach for treatment to average 0.064 opt gold, 20% higher than the drill indicated grade of 0.05 opt gold. Actual achieved recovery was 84.6% of the higher 0.064 opt Au head." He goes on to say in another part of the report, "GoldSpring is already seeing similar results for Billie The Kid deposit: 0.035 opt gold should be the average ore grade for the 5540 bench, production samples received to date indicate a head grade of 0.05 opt Au in the mined ore."
