GoldSpring Update: Super Pad 1 completed at Plum Mining; Community Open House to be held Thursday August 12, 2004 From 3 pm to 6 pm At Plum Mining Facility

VIRGINIA CITY, Nev., Aug. 2, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- GoldSpring, Inc. (OTCBB:GSPG) owns and operates Plum Mining Company, located in Gold Hill, NV, where its Billie The Kid open pit gold and silver mining project is now in full production. N.A. Degerstrom of Spokane, Washington is contracted for mining, hauling, crushing, agglomerating and leach pad loading. Plum personnel, led by Bob Turner, handle all mineral processing from cyanide leaching, solution processing, gold and silver recovery through the Company's Merrill Crowe system and the production of gold and silver dore that is shipped to the refinery.

The Company contracted with Degerstrom to excavate leach pads 2,3,4,5 in preparation for double lining by leach pad contractor Comanco. Pads 2 and 3 have now been completed, which represent SuperPad No. 1. When Super Pad No. 2 is also completed, the Company will be able to place nearly 5 million tons of ore on leachpads for processing.

Now that the transition from start-up to full production is complete, Management, contractors and employees are holding an Open House on Thursday, August 12, 2004 to showcase the Plum Mining Project for the local community. Residents from both Storey and Lyon Counties are invited, as well as any shareholders or would-be investors. Local and State officials along with Company managers, employees, contractors, engineers and geologists will be on hand to answer questions. Visitors can take a bus tour of the gold and silver mining facility including Billie the Kid Open Pit. A pouring of gold and silver will be demonstrated and music, food and refreshments provided for a fun and informative afternoon.

Steve Parent, founder, Chairman and CEO of GoldSpring says, "The Comstock Lode still contains large deposits of precious metals. The price of commodities and cost-effective methods of extraction, processing and recovery in an environmentally friendly manner will make GoldSpring's Comstock Lode operations an ongoing success! Plum Mining Co. has the only permit for a cyanide heap leach processing facility in the Comstock Lode District and the Company is aggressively pursuing the acquisition of additional mineral for processing."

Plum Mine is located just south of Virginia City off State Rt. 341. The Company's web-site provides more information and recent photos of Plum operations.
