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 drilling on the P9 target at the Menderes property (see figure) has been completed to a depth of 350m. The exploration work conducted to date on the P9 target has shown strong evidence of positive geology. The P9 target will test the extension of the 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. Drilling of the P12 target (see figure) has commenced, while results of gold assays of the P9 target are expected in the upcoming weeks.

Frontline's CEO, Walter Henry, comments, "We are very pleased with the high level of activity in the Izmir province and on our claims in particular. The surface results on Menderes were very exciting, and drilling is continuing to move the project in a positive direction."
