Get to Know Greed, Corruption, and Murder in a New Book
GOODYEARS BAR, Calif., May 10, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- Like life itself, the law is never certain. It is this uncertainty that puts lawyers on the line.

Stuck right in the middle of this story is Nancy Villella, a woman who came up the hard way-junior college, night law school, and a job with the state bar association as an administrator.

GoldSpring Update: N.A. Degerstrom, Inc., One of America's Premier Mining Contractors, Joins GoldSpring Team as Contractor of Choice for Plum Mine and Future Suitable Acquisitions
VIRGINIA CITY, Nev., May 10, 2004 (PRIMEZONE) -- GoldSpring, Inc. (OTCBB:GSPG): GoldSpring is pleased to announce that America's premier mining contractor has joined the GoldSpring Team to operate the Company's Plum Mine in Nevada and will also serve to evaluate the economics of future acquisitions that are underway at this time. N.A. Degerstrom replaces American Asphalt who has done a great job in the start up phase at Plum. American has several mining jobs going in Nevada and their equipment was getting spread quite thin, so the transition is going smoothly for all parties. Steve Parent, GoldSpring's CEO said, "With the Plum operation on the verge of doubling when we bring the Lucerne pit on stream, Degerstrom is more suited to handling our growth requirements without delays. They also bring a depth of support from mining engineering to metallurgy, which adds a level of internal support to our operations." Part of the strategic advantage of the Degerstrom collaboration is their ability to quickly evaluate the economics of operating the pending acquisitions that the Company is preparing to complete.
