Frontline Completes Soil Geochemistry Analysis and Commences IP Survey at Menderes Gold Project, Izmir Province, Turkey

Diamond Drilling is Planned

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 29, 2011) - Frontline Gold Corp. ("Frontline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FGC) is pleased to announce that the Company has completed analysis of the soil geochemistry program at its 90% owned Menderes Gold Project in Izmir Province, Turkey. Frontline will begin an IP survey on July 1st, 2011. A diamond drilling program will be designed based on the integration of data.

Soil Geochemistry Program

A total of 1016 soil samples were collected in the grid soil sample program. Analysis of the results of the soil samples has been completed and a soils geochemistry map of gold anomalous areas has been prepared (see map attached). Three distinct structural zones located in the northeast, central and southwest regions of the Menderes property are interpreted from the soils geochemistry. Additionally, soil geochemistry plots of soil samples anomalous for manganese and silver further supports the identified target structures, and the three structural zones also appear to overlap the geological structures mapped previously (new release May 26, 2011) and further assist definition of the significant target areas for future diamond drill programs.

Soil samples ranged from <1 ppb Au up to as high as 176 ppb Au. Encom's Discover geographical information system (GIS) software program was used for calculations and plotting of color intervals.

IP/Resistivity Geophysical Program

Frontline is proceeding with an IP/Resistivity geophysical program that it has signed with Enerson Mühendislik Müşavirlik Ltd. As highlighted in Frontline's May 26, 2011 news release, the program will consist of four north-south lines at 200 m spacing totalling 12 line-kilometres. This program is scheduled to commence July 1, 2011 (see map attached).

Diamond Drilling Program

It is anticipated that upon completion of the IP survey, and once the results of all prior exploration work have been integrated into the exploration model, a diamond drill program of up to 2,000 metres will be designed to test for the extensions of the epithermal vein system, present in the area and at the depths indicated by the model. The drilling program is anticipated to begin in September 2011.

About Frontline's Menderes Gold Project

Frontline, through its 90% owned Turkish subsidiary, holds the Menderes Gold Project, a 6,194 hectares (62 km²) contiguous land package located near the village (town) of Efemçukuru, in Izmir Province, Western Turkey. The permits 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.

An 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. An IP/Resistivity geophysical program is commencing.

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.
