About Granada Gold Mine Inc.
Granada Gold Mine Inc. (formerly Gold Bullion Development Corp.) is developing the Granada Gold Property near Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec. The property includes the former Granada gold mine which produced more than 50,000 ounces of gold in the 1930s with an average grade of 0.28 ounce per ton (9.6 grams per tonne) before a fire destroyed the surface buildings. The highly prolific Cadillac Trend cuts through the north part of the property. The Cadillac Trend has been the source of more than 50 million ounces of gold produced in the past century on a line running from Val-d'Or to Rouyn-Noranda.
The Company has obtained all necessary permits for the initial mining phase known as the "Rolling Start" for which stripping has already begun. In addition, the Company has resumed exploration at Granada with the goal of significantly expanding the size of the deposit's resource. Additional information is available at www.granadagoldmine.com.
