IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 11, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- "With gold at historic highs, one needs but a few moments to troll a gold show floor or an Internet resource site to see a litany of companies who stuck a stake in the ground and declared, 'We're a gold company.' The truth is very few of them will survive over the long term and ascend to the heights of a senior exchange and prosperity," stated SmallCap Sentinel analyst D.R. Clark. "Nonetheless, via a shareholder letter today, Spirit Exploration, Inc. (Pink Sheets:SPXP) announced that they will indeed seek a senior exchange in the very near future. A senior listing, paired with the company's $122 million market cap, certainly creates some separation between Spirit's gold efforts in Ecuador and the spot-price chasers."
A comprehensive report focusing on Spirit Exploration, Inc. and of interest to investors of leading gold companies including Compania de Minas Buenaventura SA (NYSE:BVN), Randgold Resources Ltd. (Nasdaq:GOLD), and Vista Gold Corp. (NYSE:VGZ) has been published by financial courier StockUpTicks.com.
"Excerpts of the shareholder letter were released this morning in a press release," Clark added. "It really does give some strong guidance about the political conditions in Ecuador, Spirit's financial stability and what the near-term may hold for this emerging gold equity."
