Frontline Gold Announces Drill Contract for the Poly Project in the Stewart Gold Camp

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2011) -


Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) ("Frontline" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the execution of a drill contract with Black Hawk Diamond Drilling of Smithers, British Columbia. The Phase 2, 2011 drill program will be carried out on the Poly Property located on Hwy 37A in the Stewart Gold Camp in north western British Columbia.

The program will comprise up to about 1500 m of drilling and is planned to test a variety of priority gold targets, such as: the X-Zone on the Upper Poly Grid (historic drill intersects of up to 3.1 g Au/t, 26.8 g Ag/t, 0.05% Cu, 0.17% Pb and 0.96% Zn over 4.9 m including 5.2 g Au/t, 49.2 g Ag/t, 0.09% Cu, 0.31% Pb and 1.8% Zn over 2.6 m); the Classic VTEM anomaly on the Southwest Grid, outlined by Geotech Ltd. surveys in 2010, and proximal to a wide zone of strongly altered and sulfidized talus boulders discovered in 2011; and, the Central and North Central VTEM anomalies, also located by Geotech surveys in 2010 and hosted by favorably altered Hazelton Group rocks. Other possible drill targets identified by the Phase 1 work include the extensive gossans on the SP Zone on the Upper SW Grid and on the LN Tenures, under option from Teuton Resources Corp. The historic, zoned Au-Cu, Ag-Pb-Zn VMS type MMI-M anomaly could present a number of drill targets on the Lower Grid, which was expanded in 2011 and additional MMI-M sampling carried out.

The final selection of drill targets will include the pending analytical results from the Phase 1 surveys that included the collection of about 1250 MMI-M, rock, soil, stream sediment and chip samples. Drill pad construction will commence in late August with drilling to follow in September. The 2011 program on the Poly Property is being carried out by Geofine Exploration Consultants Ltd. of Markham Ontario under the supervision of David E. Molloy, P.Geo.

The C$1.0M 2011 program, initiated in July 2011, is fully funded with CEE 'flow through' proceeds raised in the equity financings completed in both December 2010 and February 2011.
