Vancouver, BC: Galore Resources Inc. (TSX-V: GRI) (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a 5-year contract with Urbanizaciones Y Acabados, S.A. De CV “URBYASA” to mine gold at Galore’s 100% owned Los Gemelos claim (Duraznillo Ranch). Management anticipates revenue from the mine going a long way toward satisfying the Company’s current and future overhead requirements. We are optimistic about Galore’s future and even though some consider this approach unconventional, we consider this a promising business strategy that should move this Company to an autonomous position. With a boost in demand due to significant production decreases in recent years, we feel our timing bodes well for increased gold prices.
