GoldSpring Announces 140 Foot Gold Interval Grading 0.242 Ounces Per Ton at its Hartford / Lucerne Deposit, Comstock District, Nevada

    GOLD HILL, Nev., Feb. 18 /CNW/ -- GoldSpring, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:  
GSPG) is pleased to announce the assay results from drill hole RC-101 from the
Hartford / Lucerne deposit in the Comstock District of Nevada. Drill hole
RC-101 contains a 345 foot interval grading 0.119 ounces per ton gold (3.67
g/t) including 140 feet grading 0.242 ounces per ton gold (7.56g/t).  This
drill assay data expands the resource being defined in the Lucerne deposit to
northwest onto the historic Justice mine.

    Drill hole RC-101 intersected a second deeper gold interval of 40 feet of
0.143 ounces per ton gold (4.45g/t).  The deeper zone evidences underground
targets of 15 feet grading 0.394 ounces per ton gold (12.25g/t) and 10 feet
grading 0.162 ounces per ton gold (5.07g/t).  Underground mining potential has
been exhibited in RC-101 and targeted using GoldSpring's active block model
with historical mapping and workings. The Hartford/Lucerne deposit contains
multiple high-grade zones, moderately dipping to the east localized along the
regional scale, north trending Silver City - Gold Hill fault zone.

    Commenting on the recent results, GoldSpring's Chief Operating Officer
Jim Golden said, "Our team continues to demonstrate progress in their ability
to utilize our active block model to target higher grade materialization for
both surface and underground mining. The assay results for RC-101 give way to
a more extensive exploration drill plan of the mineral system to depth.  We
have offset RC-101 approximately 50 feet to the south to help measure the
extent of this near surface high-grade intercept.  The assay results from this
hole are still pending."

    RC-101 is located west of drilling concentrated to the northeast of the
historic Lucerne pit.  This new area expands the resource to the west of the
drill defined precious metals deposit.

    As reported to GoldSpring, all drill samples were collected following
standard industry practice and were assayed by American Assay Laboratories,
Inc. of Sparks, Nevada. Gold results were determined using standard fire assay
techniques on a 30 gram sample with an atomic absorption finish. QA/QC
included the insertion of numerous standards and blanks into the sample
stream. Check assays and preliminary cyanide amenability testing is underway.
All intercepts are reported as drilled using a 0.30 gram/tonne cut-off; true
widths have not been determined. All data, as reported to the Company and
disclosed in this press release including sampling, analytical and test data
have been reviewed by the Company's qualified person Mr. Larry Martin,
Certified Professional Geologist.
