Goldrush Resources Ltd. is a publicly-owned, junior mineral resource exploration company listed on the TSX-V exchange. It is exploring for gold in the West African country of Burkina Faso where it holds 5 highly prospective permits covering 922 sq. km. The Company's permits are all located within the West African Birimian Greenstone Belts having a prolific history of gold production in this area of the world. The recent dramatic rise in the price of gold has triggered renewed investor interest in gold exploration funding and Goldrush recently closed a fully subscribed CAD$1.0 million non-brokered private placement. Drilling on the Ronguen Gold Deposit resumed on June 15, 2010 and the program is expected to continue well into late September of this year.
