TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 22, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE U.S.

Frontline Gold Corporation ("Frontline" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FGC) is pleased to announce that diamond drilling has started for the previously announced drilling campaign at Frontline's Menderes property (see Company's news release dated November 7, 2011).

The first two drill holes of the diamond drilling program for up to 2,500 metres will simultaneously test:

  1. The extension of Kokarpinar vein of Eldorado Gold which is a known epithermal vein system associated with a producing mine and is adjacent to Frontline's permit boundary on the west, with drill target P9 (see Map); and
  2. A newly-discovered epithermal vein system (approximately 1 km in strike length), with drill target P12 (see Map), extending in NW-SE direction, which is compatible with the main structural trends in the area.

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 to medium sulphidation, gold-mineralized epithermal vein systems similar to those found within Eldorado Gold's Efemçukuru operating mining in the area.
