Golden Prospect will issue 6,226,282 new 10p shares at 30p each and pay £300,250
in cash valuing the transaction at approximately £2.17 million.  The Financial
Services Authority has approved the transaction.  Application will be made for

Ambrian Partners was founded in 2001 and is a member of the London Stock

companies and governments in mergers, acquisitions and divestitures as well as
institutional brokerage services.  Revenue generated by Ambrian in the 12 month

the natural resources sector.

'Ambrian is a great strategic fit for Golden Prospect', says Chairman, Malcolm
Burne.  'Ambrian has established itself as a leading financial adviser across
the mining and metals sector and has a strong reputation for integrity among
clients and both industry and corporate finance expertise.  Its client list is a
testament to all these things', Mr. Burne added.

'The combination of Ambrian with Golden Prospect provides the enlarged group
with increasing opportunities for the services both companies offer in the
natural resources sector.  We are pleased to join with a company and team that
are so highly regarded in the City', said Tom Gaffney, Managing Director of
Ambrian Partners.

Mr. Gaffney and Ambrian's non-executive Chairman, Mr. Lawrence Banks, CBE, will
join the board of Golden Prospect.

Prior to founding Ambrian, together with Charles Hutson (who was seriously
injured in March 2003), Mr. Gaffney was a Director of JP Morgan's Metals &
Mining Team and he was a Director in the Corporate Finance Department of Robert
Fleming from 1995.  He has worked in investment banking for 20 years and has
specialised in the mining and metals sector.

Mr. Banks was Deputy Chairman of Robert Fleming Holdings Limited, the private
London-based investment bank which now forms part of JP Morgan Chase & Co.

Information on the service contract of each of the proposed directors, together
with their other directorships, will be announced when the appointment becomes

Golden Prospect's core investment positions provide both a commodity mix of base
and precious metals plus geographical spread.  Mr. Gaffney commented 'Golden

exposure to the natural resources sector'.
