Frontline Gold Completes Diamond Drilling at Niaouleni and Launches Phase II Program

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 1, 2011) - Walter Henry, President and CEO of Frontline Gold Corporation ("Frontline") (TSX VENTURE:FGC) announces that the Phase I diamond drilling at Frontline's 100% owned Niaouleni Gold Project in Mali has been completed and that a second phase of drilling has begun.

Phase I Diamond Drilling Completed

Pursuant to the recommendations of ACA Howe International Limited ("ACA Howe") for an exploration program of up to 5,000 metres of diamond drilling and up to 18,000 metres of RAB drilling, a Phase I diamond drill program of approximately 2,800 metres was initiated November 22, 2010. The Phase I program of 25 diamond drill holes is now complete at 3,287 metres total. Assay results from the Phase I program will be released as soon as they are available.

Phase II RC Drilling Initiated

Consistent with the recommendations of ACA Howe, Frontline is proceeding with a Phase II drill program of up to 10,000 metres of RC drilling to continue following-up on drill targets identified by the prior RAB drill program, continue the confirmation and verification of historical drill results, and test additional soil and termite gold geochemical anomalies. With the approval of ACA Howe, RC is being used at this time due to the availability of the RC drill rig with deeper penetration capability than a RAB drill.

With its 94 km² Niaouleni Gold Project in West Mali, expanding land position at Efemçukuru in Turkey, the Poly and Stewart gold properties in British Columbia, and the Red Lake gold prospects in Ontario, Frontline is positioning itself as a pure-gold exploration company.

Gregory P. Isenor, P. Geo., is the Qualified Person as defined under NI 43-101 who has reviewed and is responsible for the technical information presented in this news release.

Frontline has an experienced management group, a solid exploration team and a promising portfolio of gold exploration projects offering investors an excellent opportunity.
