Gemini Announces Executive Addition and Director Resignation

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 2, 2009) - Gemini Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GKX) is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Michael Ostapiw as Vice President, Integrated Solutions.

Mr. Ostapiw is a professional engineer with more than twenty years of increasing management responsibility.

In his previous roles, Michael has been responsible for seamlessly combining engineering, construction and fabrication resources to drive joint accountability for project success. His background and experience is ideally suited to provide the direction and guidance necessary for Gemini to continue refining its integrated solutions approach and achieve long-term growth utilizing this service delivery model while still remaining focused on stand-alone fabrication and construction services.

In addition, he was granted 150,000 options to purchase Gemini common shares at an exercise price of $0.25 per share. Under the terms of Gemini's option plan, the options are valid for four years and vest one-third immediately and the remainder at one-third on each of the next two grant date anniversaries.

The Gemini Board of Directors would also like to thank Mr. Larry Shelley for his service as a director of the Corporation. Mr. Shelley chose to resign from the Board to assume the President and CEO role with a prominent Calgary-based organization.
