Golden Star Resources has completed the acquisition of a 50% interest in the Yaou and Dorlin gold properties in French Guiana from Cambior, as part of a number of transactions with Cambior on joint ventured properties in the Guyana Shield. The other 50% interest in these properties is held by Golden Star's 73% owned subsidiary, Guyanor Ressources S.A., which gives Golden Star an effective interest in these properties of 87%. In a separate development, Golden Star has made a commitment to Guyanor to participate in a rights issue by Guyanor of up to EUR15 million (USD14 million) by contributing the approximate USD11 million of debt owed by Guyanor to Golden Star into the rights issue. The company noted that the debt for equity swap will have no impact on Golden Star's consolidated balance sheet or statement of operations.
