We first talked about GYST back on August 14th. At the time, the stock was trading as low as .0135. By the very next day, it had surged ahead to .034, gaining 152% and landing us a spot on Penny Stock Rumble‘s top gainers list.

LIMA, Peru, Sep 12, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) — The Graystone Company (OTCQB: GYST) announced today that the Company’s retail sale of gold and silver increased by 341% in the month of August. The Company’s sales in August were greater than the rest of the year combined. As such, the Company is investing additional resources to continue to expand and grow this division.

“We are still in the beginning phase of vertically integrating our business,” said Paul Howarth, CEO of The Graystone Company. “Our focus is to bring our mining operations in Peru online as quickly as possible.

In fact, the retail division has grown faster than we expected – we sold more gold and silver in August then the rest of the year combined and we look forward to continued growth the rest of the year.”
