China Gold International Resources Corp. Ltd. Intercepts 144.50 Meters Of 0.92 Grams/Tonne Gold at Its CSH 217

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 29, 2010) - China Gold International Resources Corp. Ltd. (TSX:CGG)(SEHK:2099) (the "Company") is pleased to announce an update on its exploration progress for 2010 at its CSH 217 gold mine in Inner Mongolia, China. A total of 8 holes, (4187.57 meters) of diamond drilling were completed in 2010 including 6 holes (3428.29 meters) drilled to test for higher grade mineralization at depth, and 2 holes (759.28 meters) drilled to test the surface trenching intercepts of a new NW zone of gold mineralization discovered on the Company's contiguous exploration permit.

Highlights of the 2010 exploration program include intercepts of 144.50 meters grading 0.92 grams per tonne (g/t) gold in hole DDH101-1,134.30 meters grading 0.68 grams per tonne (g/t) gold in hole DDH9950-00, 14 meters grading 4.26 grams per tonne (g/t) gold in trench TC4 and 28 meters grading 0.34 grams per tonne (g/t) in trench TC2. Although the two holes drilled below the above two trenches failed to intercept significant gold mineralization, anomalous gold values were discovered and further drilling is planned for next field season to fully evaluate the potential for the NW zone.

"With the exploration achievement of the current stage, we are full of confidence in expanding the resources both down depth and in a new zone. The significant potential for resources growth on the CSH project is obvious and an aggressive 3 year exploration program is already in the planning stage to further increase our success at the CSH mine" said the Company CEO, Dr. Xin Song.

The following is a briefly summary of the 2010 drilling and trenching results:
