This result compares with the budget forecast of 8,707 ounces set at the time Northern Star agreed to acquire Paulsens. It also compares well with the Project’s previous monthly record of 9078 ounces achieved in mid 2006. The record achievement in July was assisted by some late June production which carried into the following month and made all the more significant as the processing plant was only available to mill for 80% of the month. Northern Star Managing Director Bill Beament said "the results for July highlighted the potential for Paulsens to outperform the targets set by the Company in coming months." The underground operation produced 10,529 ounces from 26,898 tonnes @ 12.2 g/t, this figure includes 4,212 tonnes of low grade material @ 1.3 g/t. This tonnage is the third best monthly production since mining began 6 years. As at the end of the month the surface stockpiles ready for processing contain 10,679 ounces of gold. It is NST's intention to report monthly over the coming months as to the performance of the Paulsens Operation. Yours faithfully, Bill Beament Managing Director Northern Star Resources Ltd.
