TORONTO, April 19 /CNW/ - Golden Hope Mines Limited (TSXV:GNH)(OTCQX:GOLHF) is pleased to announce that it has retained the services of SGS Canada Inc. - Geostat ("SGS") as an independent consultant to its Bellechasse Gold Project in southeastern Quebec.

SGS will provide Golden Hope with technical assistance with coarse gold sampling and ore body modeling leading to a resource evaluation update by the end of 2011, early 2012.

SGS has over 25 years of experience in providing the mining industry with computer-assisted ore reserve estimation services using mainly geo-statistical techniques. SGS is known globally as the expert in ore body modeling and reserve evaluation. SGS utilizes the disciplines of geology, statistics, and mining engineering to provide its clients with accurate and timely reserve and modeling solutions.

SGS is a pioneer in computer-based ore body modeling and resource estimation, providing these services since 1981. SGS has provided modeling and resource estimation solutions to companies involved in the mining of gold and precious metals, base metals, iron ore, coal, uranium, diamonds and industrial minerals.

SGS produces independent qualification reports for companies worldwide including due diligence audits, technical reports, property evaluation, prefeasibility studies and certification of reserves.

Golden Hope is also pleased to retain the services of GENIVAR, one of the largest engineering firms in Canada.

GENIVAR's multidisciplinary team is made up of experienced professionals and technicians with a solid track record in the areas of impact studies, environmental audits, environmental systems implementation and maintenance, water, air and soil characterizations, and environmental monitoring.

GENIVAR has developed an integrated approach to projects where the Corporation's environmental scientists are involved in the start-up and completion of most projects where environmental considerations are important. GENIVAR will provide Golden Hope with an audit of its environmental compliance in order to meet all legal requirements and obligations as it continues to explore the Bellechasse Gold Belt in southeastern Quebec.

"We are extremely excited about working with two world class firms such as SGS and GENIVAR. As we continue to move towards delineating a gold resource in southeastern Quebec, having independent and qualified partners such as these will help us in achieving those goals" states Frank Candido, President, Golden Hope Mines Limited.
