Frontline Advances Initial Exploration at Menderes Gold Project, Izmir Province, Turkey

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - Frontline Gold Corp. ("Frontline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FGC) is pleased to announce that the Company has advanced its initial $500,000 exploration program at its 90% owned Menderes Gold Project in Izmir Province, Turkey.

Frontline, through its 90% owned Turkish subsidiary, holds the Menderes Gold Project, a 6,194 ha (62 km²) contiguous land package located near the village of Efemçukuru, in Izmir Province, Western Turkey. The permits that make up the Menderes Gold Project were acquired for their excellent potential to host low sulphidation, gold-mineralized epithermal vein systems similar to those found in other properties in the area.

The initial $500,000 exploration program has been substantially advanced with geological prospecting and mapping, rock and soil geochemical sampling with multi-element analysis, trenching and detailed sampling around old workings completed.

The soil and geochemical sampling has been completed over a 4 km2 area, with 1,069 soil samples and 68 rock chip samples collected since March 2011. Of those, 236 soil sample results and 12 rock sample assay results are still pending. The highest anomalous soil sample is 0.179 ppm Au; the highest anomalous rock sample is 2.83 g/t Au. In addition, two new silicified zones were discovered; the first is 1 km in length, the other is in 500 m length (see attached map Frontline Gold – Menderes Project). Both zones are NW-SE trending. A soil anomaly contour map is being prepared, although some assay results are still pending.

To date, two ancient workings have been uncovered within the newly discovered silicified trends and prospecting and mapping is ongoing. Mapping has outlined epithermal vein systems and the ancient workings are on the trend of these mapped veins. Assays of rock and soil samples yielded some significant anomalous Ag, As, Cd and Mn values. One soil sample had 15.6 g/t Ag, with very low Pb and Zn sample values, suggesting that the working area is located in an upper part of the standard epithermal model and that vein-type structures with higher Au values may be found at 150-200 m depth in this part of the system rather than at surface.

An IP resistivity geophysical program of four north-south lines at 200 m spacing totaling 12 line-km is planned for June 2011, with up to 1,500 m of diamond drilling to follow. Drill holes will be located to test for the epithermal vein system at the depths indicated by the model.

Frontline Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:FGC) is a Canadian junior mineral exploration company with an experienced discovery team and a proven record of accomplishment. The Company's flagship Niaouleni property lies in the heart of Mali South in West Mali in Africa's prolific gold belt. In addition, Frontline is currently developing its gold projects in the Izmir province of Western Turkey, which consist of the Menderes, Odemis, Ordu and Kure properties. Ongoing Canadian exploration includes the Red Lake (gold) and Stewart (gold-copper-polymetallic) projects.
