Golden Star Reports Preliminary Second Quarter 2014 Production Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/08/14 -- Golden Star Resources Ltd. (TSX: GSC)(NYSE MKT: GSS)(GHANA: GSR) today announces its preliminary production results from its Wassa and Bogoso mines for the three month period ended June 30, 2014.

In the second quarter of 2014, the Company sold a total of 61,720 ounces of gold at an average realized price of $1,289 per ounce. Of this, 29,445 ounces were produced at Wassa and 32,275 were produced at Bogoso.

As at June 30, 2014, the Company has sold 127,532 ounces of gold year to date and had a cash balance of $43 million. No further drawdowns on the Ecobank loan were made in the second quarter.

Management is reviewing the mine plans for the remainder of the year to determine if the Company's mines will meet the gold production guidance previously disclosed to the public.

The Company plans to release its second quarter 2014 financial results on Wednesday, July 30, 2014, after market close. Management will host a call on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 10:00 am EDT.

Sam Coetzer, President and CEO of Golden Star commented on these results as follows:

"Gold production in the second quarter was below expectations. The primary reason for this was the high level of rainfall concentrated over a short period of time. Despite extensive dewatering of the Bogoso North and Chujah pits, access to higher grade ore at the bottom of these pits was very limited. Access to ore at Wassa was also hampered. Stockpiled lower grade ore was therefore treated at all operations during the quarter and production from higher grade material, particularly at Bogoso, has been deferred. Rain also hampered hydraulic mining at the Bogoso tailings facility. Encouragingly, when access was facilitated, mined grade from the bottom of the Bogoso North and Chujah pits was significantly higher than in the last quarter, in line with our mine plan. At the start of the third quarter, with the heavy rains expected to be behind us, we are now mining in higher grade zones. Accordingly we expect improved production in the next two quarters."
