Gold Reef International, Inc.: Corporate Update

LONDON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 17, 2010) - Gold Reef International, Inc. (CNSX:GRQ) ("Gold Reef" or the "Company") updates on a number of corporate initiatives undertaken by the new management of the Company.

The Company has called an Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on September 8, 2010. A special resolution is proposed authorizing and approving a consolidation of the common shares of the Company on a 10 old shares for 1 new share basis. A special resolution is also proposed authorizing and approving a change of the name of the Company. Should these resolutions be approved, the new proposed name of the Company is the Montana Gold Mining Company. The Company plans to borrow up to Cdn $200,000 in order to fund the initial cost of the corporate initiatives outlined within this release.

The Company has entered into an option agreement to earn a 51% interest in a gold exploration property located in the State of Montana and referred to as the Silver Bell – St. Lawrence Property (the "SBSL Property"). To earn the 51% interest the Company must spend US $250,000 in exploration by February 28, 2012 and make various payments totaling US $137,500. Two gold mines are reported to have previously operated on the SBSL Property in the late 1800's named the Silver Bell and the St. Lawrence Mines. The Company plans to commission the preparation of an NI 43-101 compliant geologic report on the SBSL Property which is expected to include recommendations for exploration. When completed, the report will be published on Sedar.

The Company has commissioned the preparation of an updated NI 43-101 compliant geologic report on the Company's Golden Trail Project, Nevada. When completed, the report will be published on Sedar.

The Company has completed the sale of the Rimrock Property, Nevada for Cdn $130,000 plus a 2% net smelter royalty. The Rimrock Property did not have an NI 43-101 compliant geologic report completed on it and was not likely to be a focus of the new Gold Reef management.

Gold Reef International Inc. is a reporting issuer in good standing in the Province of Ontario whose common shares are listed on CNSX (Symbol: GRQ). There are 42,491,040 common shares issued and outstanding in the capital of Gold Reef.
