Frontline Gold Expands Poly Project in the Stewart Gold Camp, NW BC

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 22, 2012) -

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

Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) ("Frontline" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the expansion of the Poly Project located in the Stewart Gold Camp.

Based on the positive results obtained from the 2010 and 2011 exploration work on the Poly Property, the Poly Project has been enlarged to include the mill tenures ("the MT"). The MT is comprised of about 613 hectares in 2 mineral tenures which are strategically located east of the Poly Property. The MT connects two satellite Poly tenures to the north with the main area of the Property to the south (see tenure Map 1 attached). A 2008 assessment report on the MT indicates some interesting gold targets on the north side of the Entrance Peak Intrusive on the northern area of the tenures. Historic exploration activities on the MT identified two types of mineralization: molybdenite in quartz veins and in fracture fillings in the Strohn Creek pluton; and, phyllic altered boulders in a creek bed assaying between 13.03 to 20.67 g/t Au, 63.2 to 93.3 g/t Ag, 0.45 to 1% Pb and 0.74 to 0.85% Zn. The polymetallic mineralization is thought to have a proximal source associated with the north contact of the Pluton.

The MT also covers a portion of the old access road (see Map 1) to the historic Goat Mine mill site and Goat Mine silver property held by Mountain Boy Minerals, which is located to the north and through the two northeastern Poly claims.

Frontline has optioned (the "MT Option") the MT from Dynasty Capital LLC and John R. Gaetz. To maintain the MT Option Frontline will be required to make cash option payments totaling $50,000 and issue an aggregate of 125,000 shares of the Company over a four year period as per the following schedule:

Date Cash Payments Share Issuances
On execution $ 2,500 (completed ) 25,000
December 15, 2012 $ 7,500 25,000
December 15, 2013 $ 10,000 25,000
December 15, 2014 $ 10,000 25,000
December 15, 2015 $ 20,000 25,000
Totals $ 50,000 125,000

The MT Option is subject to a 2% net smelter return royalty (the "NSR"). Frontline has the option to buy-back the NSR for $1,000,000 anytime during the four year option period. The MT Option is subject to TSX Venture approval and the issuance of shares will be subject to a four month hold period.

Frontline's Poly Property land package now comprises 22 tenures aggregating approximately 6974 hectares in the Stewart Gold Camp region. The Stewart Gold Camp in northwestern British Columbia is an emerging, world-class mining district that offers discovery opportunities for major gold-copper and precious metal polymetallic deposits.

About Frontline's Poly/Stewart Projects

Frontline holds an option to earn and acquire up to a 100% in both the Poly and Stewart Projects. The Poly and Stewart Projects are based in the Stewart Gold Camp in northwestern British Columbia. This is an evolving gold camp that hosts one of the world's richest Kuroko-type VMS precious metal deposits as well as one of the world's largest undeveloped Cu-Au porphyry deposits, KSM/Snowfield/Brucejack, with over 94Moz of Au, 607Moz of Ag and 14B lbs Cu in resources. The Poly Project is contiguous with Mountain Boy Minerals and Great Bear Resources mineral tenures that host the BA Ag-Pb-Zn VMS deposits as well as with Teuton/Sabina's tenures that host the Del Norte VMS trend.

Frontline's gold-copper porphyry project, the Stewart Property, straddles Highway 37 approximately 10 kilometres south of Bell 2 and its western tenures are contiguous with the KSM (Seabridge Resources) and Snowfield/Brucejack (now Pretivm Resources) properties.

On April 19, 2012, Frontline provided highlights for its 2012 exploration programs on the Poly and Stewart Properties in the Stewart Gold Camp of northwestern British Columbia. The 2012 Poly exploration programs are being supervised by Geofine Exploration Consultants Ltd. under the direction of David Molloy, P.Geo. Both the Stewart and Poly 2012 exploration programs have received all regulatory permits. All programs are subject to financing.
