   "Fight for the Goldstone Resources was very fast and brutal - we like that Mr Cunningham has so low level of tolerance for sloppy performance of the management. After the merger stock just collapsed even below the value of Roxmark Mines main asset 30% in Hardrock. We have raised our concerns before and now we think that it is very positive development for the company, when majority shareholder will lead its management team. With gold at the level of 1250 and Premier Gold flying in the skyes value of the Goldstone Resources should be well north of 1.0CAD at least based on Roxmark Mines market cap before merger."



  CS. We have a final accord of Corporate Governance in action in Canada. So many managers forget that they are hired to run the company by its shareholders and company belongs to them. Management's main goal is to build value for shareholders, avoid unnecessary dilution and think about the business like its owners would think by themselves - it is a dream some would say and they will be right. So go where owners are in charge as well and management has significant stake in the business. You have already more than enough risk in junior mining in order to be engaged in games around dilution, options, salaries, offices and perks.

 Goldstone Resources has joined today the club with NGeX resources, where Lukas Lundin owns stake and is Chairman of the board, and both Minera Andes and TNR Gold have their own major shareholders holding large stake in the companies.




  With record gold prices Golstone now have a lot of room for upside just reflecting its Hardrock deposit growth with Premier Gold operating on the property.

Goldstone resumes Beardmore-Geraldton drilling




2010-09-24 19:33 ET - News Release


Mr. J. Patrick Sheridan reports



GOLDSTONE RESOURCES EXPLORATION UPDATE



Goldstone Resources Inc. has resumed its diamond drilling program in the Beardmore-Geraldton gold camp. Drilling will concentrate at Key Lake and at various prospects in the Beardmore area.



Key Lake



A total of 29 holes have been completed to date, totalling 6,800 metres. An additional 17 holes have been planned so far for phase 2, totalling 3,300 metres. Recent modelling of the Key Lake drill results, which includes recent and historical data, has aided in strategically placed drill holes to test gold mineralizing trends. Complete results are still outstanding for phase 1.



Northern Empire mine



A recent review of regional data in the vicinity of the Northern Empire claim group in Beardmore has emphasized a series of closely spaced quartz veins which has seen limited drilling. A stratigraphic drill section is planned to ascertain if mineralization across the veins plus host rock will yield a bulk-minable scenario. Four holes are planned in this region for 600 metres.



Creek vein



Recent prospecting in the region of the Creek vein has yielded a new gold-bearing showing which warrants drilling. Recent trenching and grab samples have revealed anomalous gold values. Three holes are planned for this target for a total of 450 metres. A review of the historic drilling in the Creek vein area shows considerable gold mineralization over core widths in excess of 40 feet. Five diamond drill holes totalling 1,000 metres will test the plunge of the mineralized zone.



Brookbank



A preliminary economic assessment of the Brookbank deposit has been completed by Micon International. Goldstone is currently reviewing the results, which will be forthcoming in a following news release. Discovered in the early 1980s, the Brookbank deposit was a major asset of Ontex Resources. Following the merger with Roxmark Mines late in 2009, to form Goldstone Resources, the Northern Empire mill provided a synergy between the deposit and possible production. At a cut-off grade of 3.4 grams per tonne (g/t) gold, drilling has established 1.36 million tonnes grading 9.7 g/t gold containing 424,400 ounces of indicated resource and 1.09 million tonnes grading 7.9 g/t gold containing 276,600 ounces of inferred resource at Brookbank (see National Instrument 43-101 technical report, "Technical Report on the Brookbank Gold Deposit, Beardmore, GeraldtonRPA Inc. dated May 4, 2009, as filed on SEDAR).



The exploration program is managed by Goldstone Resources under the supervision of Mike Kilbourne, PGeo, vice-president of exploration and the qualified person for Goldstone Resources. Mr. Kilbourne has reviewed and approved the technical information in this news release.



Further information is available on the company's website and on SEDAR under the company's profile.
