(figures in Canadian dollars)

Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of its previously disclosed private placement of units ("Units") at a price of $0.14 per Unit and flow-through common shares ("Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.17 per Flow-Through Share for aggregate gross proceeds of $3,743,112 (the "Offering"). A total of 22,897,945 Units and a total of 3,121,176 Flow-Through Shares were sold under the Offering.

Stonecap Securities Inc. and CIBC World Markets Inc. (collectively the "Agents"), acted as joint agents on the brokered portion of the Offering, and raised gross proceeds of $3,027,212 in respect of the offering of Units and gross proceeds of $537,400 in respect of the offering of Flow-Through Shares.

Aggregate gross proceeds of $178,500 were raised on a non-brokered basis in respect of the offering of Units.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (the "Warrants"). Each whole Warrant entitles the holder thereof to acquire one common share of the Company until December 23, 2013. Each Warrant is exercisable at a price of $0.18 per common share until December 23, 2012 and at a price of $0.20 per common share until December 23, 2013.

In connection with the brokered portion of the Offering, the Company paid a cash commission of $285,168.98 and issued an aggregate of 1,982,728 non-transferable broker warrants exercisable until December 23, 2012 at an exercise price of $0.14 per common share.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a hold period expiring on April 24, 2011.

In accordance with the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange, the Corporation may, before January 17, 2011, complete an additional offering of up to 5,674,055 Units and up to 4,191,824 Flow-Through Shares on the same terms as the Offering.

The net proceeds from the offering of Units will be used for exploration at the Company's Niaouleni property in Mali, working capital and general corporate purposes. The gross proceeds from the offering of Flow-Through Shares will be used to incur certain types of Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE") which will qualify as "flow-through mining expenditures" as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada) and the Company will renounce, for the 2010 taxation year, such CEE in favour of original purchasers of the Flow-Through Shares in an amount equal to the issue price for each Flow-Through Share.

The closing of the offering is subject to the final approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
