    ADELONG GOLD PROJECT FEASIBILITY STUDY RESULTS

    GCR is taking the first step towards re-opening Adelong, one of NSW'
    largest and highest-grade goldfields.

    GCR commissioned Keith Goode of Eagle Research Advisory Pty Ltd to
    visit the Adelong Gold Project and review the recently-completed
    feasibility study. Keith Goode's report is attached for the
    information of shareholders.

    The feasibility study focussed on the Challenger Zone, the Challenger
    Extended Zone and outlying mullock dumps. It is proposed that the
    Challenger Zone be mined by underground methods, the Challenger
    Extended Zone by open-cut methods and the mullock dumps be upgraded
    through screening prior to processing.

    The resource at the Challenger and Challenger Extended Zones has been
    upgraded to 307,400t at 4.9 g/t, containing 48,000 oz of gold
    (215,400t at 4.9 g/t indicated and 92,000t at 5.0 g/t inferred). The
    mullock dumps inferred resource is 110,000t at 1.6 g/t gold. The
    total resource is 417,400t at 4.0 g/t, containing 54,000 oz of gold.

    The feasibility study is based on mining 23,500 tonnes per month over
    14 months at an average grade of 4.2 g/t, producing 42,000 oz of gold
    at an average cash operating cost of about $365/oz average cash
    operating cost of about $365/oz (US$200/oz at 1A$ = US$0.55) over the
    currently defined mine life. Drilling has shown that mineralisation
    extends below the base of the current mine plan. Processing involves
    a standard CIL plant with expected recoveries of 95%.

    At current gold prices the feasibility study revealed a payback of
    the $3.25 million capital cost in about 7 months.
