GoldSpring Renews Reclamation Permit for Comstock Lode Property

GOLD HILL, Nev., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GoldSpring, Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: GSPG) , announced today that its updated Reclamation Permit has been approved by the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection (NDEP). The updated and amended permit expands the footprint of the allowable surface mining limit from 23.5 acres to 110.0 acres and expands the boundary of its exploration and development area by approximately 467% from 173 acres to 809 acres. The Company sought an expansion of the allowable area under the Permit as a result of favorable drilling results in the Comstock Lode project.

The Company has secured an updated reclamation bond through the State of Nevada Bond Pool administered by the Nevada Division of Minerals. The completion of this permitting process is a key step in the Company's plan to resume mine production in 2009.

"We are pleased with the diligent efforts of the Plum Mine's engineering and geological team," commented Dennis Anderson, P.E., GoldSpring's Senior Engineer. "Our team has re-engineered and updated our Reclamation Plan to allow for expanded exploration and development opportunities and to reflect current economics. These amendments allow us to increase the scale of our Comstock Lode project beyond the parameters contemplated in our original 2004 Reclamation Plan and Permit."

About GoldSpring, Inc.

GoldSpring, Inc. is a North American precious metals mining company, focused in Nevada, with extensive, contiguous property in the Comstock Lode District. Our Company was formed in mid-2003, and we acquired two properties in the Comstock Lode before the end of the year. We secured permits, built an infrastructure and brought the exploration project into test mining production within a year of its acquisition. The Company, in 2005, began consolidating the Comstock Lode by acquiring additional properties in the district, expanding our footprint and creating opportunities for exploration and mining. We are an emerging company, looking to build on our success through the acquisition of other mineral properties in the Comstock Lode District with reserves or exploration potential. The Company's objectives are to increase reserves through exploration, expand its footprint in the Comstock, resume mining, optimize its production, and maximize shareholder value.
