Golden Hope Tests for Extensions to Its Bellechasse (Timmins) Gold Deposit

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 10, 2009) - Golden Hope Mines Limited (TSX VENTURE:GNH)(PINK SHEETS:GOLHF) is pleased to announce that it has completed a collection of soil samples in a program of soil gas hydrocarbon geochemistry designed to test for extensions of the known gold-bearing zones of the Bellechasse (Timmins) Gold deposit located is south-eastern Quebec.

The company has used the Activation Laboratories Ltd soil gas hydrocarbon technique in exploration for gold and base metals with encouraging results on other parts of its Bellechasse - Chaudiere property in the Beauce.

The surveys cover areas on strike of the known mineralization (T1, T2, and Ascot) and also tests for parallel zones to the north and to the south. The soil gas hydrocarbon technique can detect mineralization to depths in excess of 200 metres below surface through glacial overburden or bedrock, or a combination of both.

All of the samples collected have already been shipped to Activation Laboratories Ltd and results are pending. A map outlining the area in which soil samples were taken can be viewed at http://www.goldenhopemines.com/UserFiles/BC_min_zones.pdf.

"We have long felt that the Bellechasse (Timmins) Gold deposit extends beyond the known mineralized area on strike as well as the existence of possible repeated parallel zones. We are anxious to confirm our theory" states Frank Candido, President of Golden Hope Mines.

James Tilsley, P. Eng., has prepared and reviewed the technical content in this news release and is a qualified person (QP) for Golden Hope Mines in compliance with National Instrument 43-101.
