Getik, a promising gold exploration property in Armenia, was acquired by Global Gold in 2006 and 2007. The exploration license area is approximately 27 square kilometers, and the property is located in northeastern Armenia in the Geghargunik region.
The property had been explored for gold and uranium by the Soviets, and the results of their work indicate the presence of uranium oxide in one portion and gold (2-5 million tonnes of ore estimated at 4-5 g/t) in another. Exploration and drill results from 2006 confirm gold potential in one zone and gold and silver potential in another zone. Global Gold’s current exploration program is staged over a period of 3 years, with drilling.

The forward-looking statements contained in this release are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the statements made. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") limits disclosure for U.S. reporting purposes to mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. We use terms such as "reserves," "resources," "geologic resources," "proven," "probable," "measured," "indicated," or "inferred," which may not be consistent with the reserve definitions established by the SEC Industry Guide 7. Laws of foreign countries including Armenia and Chile are not consistent with SEC Industry Guide 7 regarding use of such terms. We are required to adhere to the mining laws and requirements of the countries we operate in which include developing reserves as well as exploration and mining activities pursuant to laws in the countries where we operate and to be in compliance with license requirements. We acknowledge that due to the differences in laws of the countries in which we operate and SEC Industry Guide 7, our mining activities are being reported for informational and disclosure purposes based on foreign country requirements but also that the SEC does not recognize any of our properties as having proven or probable reserves established under SEC Industry Guide 7. Under SEC Industry Guide 7, we can only state that we are in the exploration stage and have found consistencies in mineralization amongst our drilling results, even though we have foreign country approved reserves, resources, mining licenses, and sales of concentrate. U.S. investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K. You can review and obtain copies of these filings from our website or at www.sec.gov/edgar.shtml. Investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral resources will ever be confirmed or converted to Guide 7 compliant "reserved."
