It takes more than trust to invest in a company. It takes confidence. The only way to develop this confidence is to find out as much as possible about the company. Due diligence. This requires a little effort on our part. There are several easy ways to find out about a company such as Anglo Swiss. Try calling the company, for starters. Most companies now have websites too. Try the website anglo-swiss.com The internet search engines are a good and easy way for you to find out more about gemstones or anything for that matter. The rewards, though, are worth the effort. Not only do you end up knowing more about the company you want to invest in, but you become a more informed investor. It's the only way we have of protecting ourselves from the marauding wolves in the market. |

GEMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE CONFIRMS GARNET GEMSTONE POTENTIAL |
On June 29, 1998, Anglo Swiss Resources Inc.(ASW-M, ASWC-OTCBB) announced the discovery of gem quality garnets in British Columbia and subsequently sent a selection of various facetted garnets to the Gemological Institute of America's, Gem Trade Laboratory (the ''GIA'') for identification.
The GIA has identified these gemstones as pyrope-almandite garnet. When facetted, they display a brilliant, translucent cranberry-red colour. Although the GIA does not appraise the market value of gemstones, local jewellers and gemologists indicate that finished, facetted garnets 1 to 5 carats in weight, would wholesale between US$35 to $45 per carat. Large 10+ carat garnets would increase in value. The Company recently shipped approximately 1000 carats of
rough, gem quality garnet to three separate cutting facilities in Sri Lanka to evaluate the quality of the facetting.
The garnet occurrence continues to exceed all expectations in size and grade, with gem grade garnet as a percentage of total garnet recovery increasing with depth. The outcrop at this stage measures about 5 metres in length, varying from 30 to 130 centimetres in width, and more than 3 metres in depth (16.4 ft. by 1 to 4.2 ft. by 9.84 ft.).
At present, total extraction has been approximately 250,000 carats of rough garnet from about 2 tonnes of pegmatite. A very rough estimate would yield about 30% by weight of this clean, coarse garnet rough which will produce gemstones from 0.25ct. to 3ct. in size. The Company will continue to sample the outcrop throughout this exploration season.
These gemstones were discovered on the Company's Blu Starr group of claims located in south eastern British Columbia. This is the property that to-date has yielded rough star sapphires up to 250 carats in size and other gemstones such as aquamarine, beryl, tourmaline, titanite, moonstone and several varieties of smoky, rose and star quartz. Further prospecting and pan sampling of water courses on the 11,000 acre property are being conducted to
locate additional deposits of sapphire and the other gemstones.
