Fronteer Intersects 4.07 g/t Gold Over 22.9 Metres in
Second Hole at Kirazli

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 11, 2005) - Fronteer
Development Group Inc. (TSX:FRG) (OTCBB:FTDGF) (FWB:FRR) is pleased to
announce that it has intersected significant gold mineralization in a
second diamond drill hole (KD-02) from the Kirazli Property in western
Turkey.

KD-02 intersected 1.95 g/t gold over 61.2 metres, including 4.07 g/t
gold over 22.9 metres with oxide gold mineralization starting at a down
hole depth of 33.9 metres.

The lower half of the drill hole intersected continuous sulphide gold
mineralization that assayed 0.34 g/t gold over 125.4 metres including
0.63 g/t gold over 10.7 metres. KD-02 ended in gold mineralization at a
down-hole depth of 243.2 metres.

Drill Hole KD-02 is a 35m step-out scissor hole from Hole KD-01 (which
returned 12.23 g/t gold over 39.4 metres), and demonstrates continuity
of the high grade zone at shallow depths. Drill results from KD-02 are
comparable to an historic reverse circulation hole drilled in the same
location.

The 2004 Kirazli drill program finished on January 3rd, 2005 with the
completion of a third hole KD-03, the results of which are anticipated
in late January.

Based on the results from the first two drill holes and data from
historical drilling, the gold zone at Kirazli appears to have a
sub-horizontal tabular shape with a high grade upper zone, and a
broader, underlying interval of economically significant, lower grade
gold mineralization.

The high grade zone confirmed by Fronteer's first two drill holes shows
considerable potential for extension. Fronteer's analysis of the
controls of the high grade mineralization has also generated a number of
similar targets nearby, that may represent additional high grade zones.

Historical drilling indicates that many of the deeper sulfide gold
intersections are open laterally and at depth. As well, the extent of
mineralization and alteration encountered in drilling to date shows that
Kirazli is a large, intensely mineralized system with significant
potential for a large bulk-tonnage gold target.

Fronteer will accelerate its Kirazli exploration program over the first
half of 2005 in an effort to test as many of its proposed targets as
possible. An initial 5,000 metre, two rig, diamond drill program is
scheduled to commence in early February.

The Kirazli Property is one of two large gold properties in western
Turkey that are under option to Fronteer from Teck Cominco. The other
property is called Agi Dagi, which is also being rapidly advanced
through drilling. In addition to gold in Turkey, Fronteer is also
focused on the discovery of Uranium Deposits in Labrador and the NWT in
Canada.

Fronteer is a mineral exploration company that uses knowledge and
science to identify the most promising sites, early. By finding this
'sweet spot' in the exploration process, we are able to offer the
highest creation of value for the lowest requirement of resources and
time.
