Frontline Gold Reports the Initiation of the 2011 Exploration Programs on the Poly and Stewart Projects, Stewart Gold Camp, NW British Columbia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 30, 2011) -


Frontline Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:FGC) ("Frontline" or the "Company") President and CEO, Walter Henry announces that the commencement of the 2011 field programs on the Poly and Stewart Properties, NW British Columbia. BC Ministry of Natural Resources multiyear Work Permits are in place on both projects.


The Poly Property is located approximately 35 km east of the Town of Stewart and the precious metal VMS type exploration targets are bisected by Stewart Highway 37A and the Stewart Power Line. Interest was first generated in the area when 49 sulfidized rock and float samples collected from and in the vicinity of the X Zone horizon averaged 13.1 g Au/t, 607.6 g Ag/t, 0.28% Cu, 0.24% Pb and 0.52% Zn. Historic drilling on the X Zone returned up to 3.1 g Au/t, 26.8 g Ag/t, 0.05% Cu, 0.17% Pb and 0.96% Zn over 4.9 m including 5.2 g Au/t, 49.2 g Ag/t, 0.09% Cu, 0.31% Pb and 1.8% Zn over 2.6 m. The X Zone, located in the NE area of the Property, was traced south into the Strohn Valley, which led to the discovery and pursuit of the soil anomaly referenced below.

Phase 1 2011 Poly program will comprise of geochemical and geological surveys on an expanded Lower Grid to attempt to delineate the full extent and postulated source areas of the prominent, zoned MMI-M, VMS type soil anomaly (Au-Cu-Ag-Pb-Zn). The anomaly was expanded in 2010 and remains open to the west and northwest towards a number of VTEM anomalies, including the Classic and the Central Zones, which were delineated by Geotech Ltd. in 2010. The geophysical anomalies are located on higher ground and have flanking or direct magnetic association. Ground follow-up will attempt to prioritize drill targets and locate drill set-ups.

A number of gossan zones emerging from waning glaciers in 2010 e.g., the SP Zone, located along strike and to the south of the VTEM anomalies, will also be initially evaluated in Phase 1 surveys. Historic sampling on the Breccia Zone gossan located on the edge of the Poly Property, about 2.5 km SW of the SP Zone, returned values up to 6.78 g Au/t and 2.2% Zn over 14.5 m; and, 12 g Au/t over 9.4 m.

The Poly Project also includes the Lord Nelson Tenures ("LNT"), located south of and contiguous with the Poly Tenures and under option from Teuton Resources. Part of the LNT was explored with a historic AEROTEM survey, which delineated the northern segment of a prominent zone of conductors on the southern area of the Property near the contact with Bowser sediments. The historic EM and gold and base metal anomalies in talus samples collected by LAC Minerals will be followed-up. A VTEM survey is also planned over the LNT, with ground work focused on a number of gossan zones along the ridge line above the Poly Tenures.

Phase 2, 2011 drill program totalling about 1500 m is planned to test the highest priority targets on the Poly Property, subject to drill availability.


The Stewart Property is approximately 280 square km and is located about 90 km NE of the town of Stewart. The western tenures are contiguous with the KSM (Seabridge Resources) and Silver Standard (Pretium Resources) properties and straddle Highway 37, along which the Northwest Transmission Line is being built.

The project is postulated to cover a large Au-Cu porphyry system, which includes apothyses of intrusive rock. The target is signatured by a large magnetic anomaly and a strong Au-Cu signature in oxidized soil and pyritized rock samples. Historic drilling on the Deltaic grid had returned wide zones of anomalous Au and Cu values e.g., DDHDC96-02 intersected 0.248 g Au/t and 0.094% Cu over a core length of 80 m; 0.123 g Au/t, 0.028% Cu and 0.12% Zn over 44.8 m; and, 0.262 g Au/t and 0.16% Cu over 24.4 m; and, DDHDC07-03, 0.189 g Au/t and 0.074% Cu over a 138.67 m core length including a higher grade Au section that contained 0.468 g Au/t and 0.11% Cu over 17.14 m and a higher copper section that returned 0.140 g Au/t and 0.17% Cu over 17.08 m. Five follow-up drill holes totalling approximately 2200m are currently recommended to test the Deltaic, Bear Valley and Northwest Zones at depth. The proposed holes will be spotted on the targets in anticipation of additional funding.

The 2010 VTEM survey had outlined 6 new targets areas and was confirmative of 4 others. These areas have weak conductivity and generally positive magnetic association and favorable structural fabric. Phase 1 geological and geochemical surveys will be used as the first evaluation of these new targets recommended by Geotech Ltd. A circular structure (Cirque Zone) in the northeast area of the Property is of particular interest.

The 2011 exploration program on the BC projects will total a minimum $1 M and be carried out by Geofine Exploration Consultants Ltd. of Markham Ontario. The work will be supervised by David Molloy, P.Geo. (APGO; APEGBC).
