Galway Gold's Vetas License Unaffected by the Santurban Paramo

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Dec. 24, 2014) - Galway Gold Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GLW) ("Galway Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Colombian Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development has announced the approval of Resolution 2090 dated Dec. 19, 2014, officially declaring the boundaries of the Santurbán Paramo. According to the information published on the Ministry's website, Galway's Vetas gold-silver project is located in the Paramo but there is no impact on the current exploration and exploitation license.

On January 10, 2014, the Company announced that it had exercised its right to acquire the Vetas gold-silver project in the Vetas-California-Surata gold region of Colombia. Galway Gold was then advised that the counterparty to the Reina de Oro Option Contract rejected the exercise of the option. Galway Gold has entered into arbitration of this matter pursuant to the terms of the Option Contract. Management feels confident of a positive outcome from the arbitration hearing, which is expected to conclude in the first quarter of 2015.
