In the report, the analyst writes, Sierra Gold has acquired 100% of the mining rights to a property stretching over a 40 square kilometer area in Sierra Leone, West Africa. The Sierra Leone mines have proven reserves of gold and other precious metals. The property is located in the greenstone belt of West Africa, one of the worlds fastest growing areas of gold exploration and development.

Larger competitors include Goldcorp (NYSE:GG), IAMGOLD Corp, (NYSE: IAG), Bema Gold Corp. (NYSE: BGO), and Metallica Resources (AMEX: MRB). The company claims to possess gold reserves valued at $586 million. Based on approximately 79 million shares outstanding, this suggests the value of Sierra Golds gold reserves (before extraction costs) to be approximately $7.42 per share. Further analysis indicates the presence of potential gold bearing gravel at lower depths than previous sampling reports.

A report on the mining property estimates gold reserves of 520,000 ounces with grades of .12 oz/ton. The Company conducted extensive assaying in late 2005 that established the presence of large quantities of gold of grades 2.62 gm/ton at depths twice those considered in the analysis.
