Frontline Gold Identifies 2 IP Anomalies from IP/Resistivity Survey

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 23, 2011) -


Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) ("Frontline" or the "Company") is pleased to announce recent results from an Induced Polarization (IP) - Resistivity geophysical survey on its Menderes Project in Izmir province, western Turkey located 20 km from the provincial capital of Izmir. The property consists of 62 sq. km with the survey area covering approximately 4 sq. km. The survey is on the eastern on-strike extension of Eldorado Gold Corporation's Efemcukuru gold mine which began operating in July 2011.

JVX Ltd. ("JVX") of Richmond Hill was retained to review the data from the IP/Resistivity survey completed by Enerson Engineering and Consulting a Turkish company. JVX identified two IP anomalies which were located by the survey, one of which is on strike 1.2 km east of the producing gold mine (see figure 1 attached).

The southern anomaly located in the middle of the grid is medium in strength and is associated with a weak resistivity high on its southern flank. The anomaly correlates with anomalous soil geochemical Au values and a 2.83 g/t Au grab sample was taken from an outcrop within the anomaly, as previously mapped in Frontline's news release dated June 29, 2011 (see figure 2 attached). In addition an old mine tunnel (adit) is located on the northern flank of the IP anomaly.

A second IP anomaly located on the northern part of the grid, is described as "very strong" and covers an area 400 m wide by 300 m long. The IP anomaly is associated with a moderate resistivity low and is open to the east and west. Two sources of the anomaly have been interpreted. The IP anomaly correlates with anomalous geochemical Au values, while an old mine tunnel (adit) driven into the southern anomaly. The two adits identified on the survey area are believed to be from activity by the Romans with further work done by the Ottoman Empire.

On the southern part of the grid there are several narrow resistivity highs with very weak charge abilities. In this area on the south-western part of the grid several resistivity highs correlate with the highest soil geochemical Au values located on the grid.

JVX in its review of the IP/Resistivity survey has recommended seven drill holes totaling 2,350 m which it has proposed for drilling.

Frontline Gold Corp.'s president Walter Henry says, "We are extremely pleased to obtain these terrific results in such a high potential epithermal gold environment. The occurrence of these IP anomalies associated with gold mineralization only 1.2 km east of a producing mine demonstrates they should be drilled immediately. Subject to obtaining the required drilling permit, finalizing the drill location and size of drill program and finally securing the funding for the drill program, Frontline will begin preparations for a drill program which is expected to start in the fall."

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.
