Galahad Completes Phase I Drilling on Montrose Lease, Matachewan

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - Galahad Metals Inc (TSX VENTURE:GAX) is pleased to report completion of a total of seven drill holes for a total of 687 meters on its Montrose Project. This property is located south west of Matachewan, Ontario along a splay fault off the Larder Lake – Cadillac Break.

The focus of the drilling was to target high priority untested I.P. geophysical targets and co-incident anomalous surface geochemistry. Six of the holes tested such targets however one hole was dedicated to testing a high resistivity anomaly within the Main Zone where historical drilling intersected widespread, near-surface gold mineralization. A summary of these historical holes in the Main Zone is tabulated below and were taken from a published NI 43-101 Technical Report on the Montrose Lease. This report can be reviewed from Company information listed on SEDAR.

Deeper drill testing of the Main Zone is highly warranted in light of the possibly of outlining near surface (open pit) mineralization as indicated by the above results.

Robin Dow,CEO reports "our highest priority is to log and split the core as quickly as possible. If assays are favorable a Phase II program to grid drill the Main Zone has been recommended". The drill program was completed this past weekend and core is being transported to our core facility.
