The Lone Star mine operated over two time periods; underground from 1897-1918 producing 146,540 tonnes, and open-pit from 1977-1978 by Granby Mining Co. when 400,000 tonnes of ore were transported from the Lone Star open pit to its Phoenix mill in B.C, 11km to the north.

 

The Lone Star deposit has an historic resource estimate which was reported in a “Technical Report and Resource Estimate on the Lone Star Deposit, Ferry County Washington (September 23, 2007)” for Merit Mining Corp. and authored by P&E Mining Consultants Inc.

Based on higher copper prices, Belmont geologists have reconsidered the high-grade Cu +/- Au

drillhole intercepts in the area of the historic resource for the potential to support an underground

operation. Many historic Lone Star intercepts demonstrate underground mine widths and grade.

NI 43-101 Disclosure:

 

Technical disclosure in this news release has been approved by Laurence Sookochoff, P.Eng., a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

 

A qualified person has not done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.  As such the issuer, Belmont Resources, is not treating this historical estimate as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.

 

(1) Mineral resources which are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability.

(2) Gold equivalent (AuEq) grade was calculated utilizing a gold price of US$593/oz and copper price of US$2.84/lb., based on the 24 month (at July 31, 2007) trailing average of gold and copper prices, to obtain a conversion factor of % copper x 3.284 + gold g/t = Au Eq g/t. Metallurgical recoveries and smelting/refining costs were not factored into the gold equivalent calculation.
