Garrison Announces Results of Geophysics Survey at Tuvshir, Results of Shareholders' Meeting, Issuance of Shares for Debt and Loan Details

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2010) - Garrison International Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GAU) ("Garrison") is pleased to announce that the initial Induced Polarization Gradient Array (IPGA) geophysics survey has been completed over the major areas of interest within Garrison's Tuvshir Project's northern exploration and mining licenses. A Mongolian geophysics company, GPGD LLC, which specialises in Induced Polarization surveys was contracted to conduct the IPGA program. Approximately 90 line kilometres have been surveyed at average 100 metre line spacing. On site monitoring was done on each survey line using calibrated equipment with the company's Project Geologist overseeing the survey. The results can be seen below in figure 1 with Resistivity and Chargeability maps side-by-side for comparison.

To view Figure 1, please visit the following link:

The Project's technical staff involved in the exploration program targeted areas within and around the major mineralised areas, i.e. Quartz Blow, Ninja and China Areas, as indicated above. These known areas of mineralisation consist of large outcropping quartz with a high percentage of oxidised sulphide minerals, which are in fact zones of supergene enrichment. Prior to conducting the survey the technical staff theorized that there was a relationship between the three major zones of mineralisation. The results are encouraging showing a link up in chargeability between the Ninja and Quartz Blow areas with what would appear to be a structural offset to the China Area. The mineralisation, which is represented by the white objects, as circled, tends to sit either amidst the chargeability/resistivity 'highs' and/or right on the margin. These results indicate sulphides at greater depth. Gold is typically associated with sulphides in the region, which is known from previous detailed exploration work conducted in the vicinity.

An interesting relationship can be drawn between the Tuvshir results and Centerra's Boroo Gold Project, which is a world-class mine and is currently Mongolia's largest operating gold mine. Although the two projects are approximately several hundred kilometres apart they sit within the same regional thrust belt, which is host to Mongolia's major gold deposits. As seen in figure 2 below in the two images, again side-by-side, the chargeability highs in Centerra Gold's map display the same traits as those of the Tuvshir results, i.e. mineralisation is sitting in or on the margins of the chargeability highs.

Garrison's technical team, along with GPGD LLC, are now conducting a geophysics dipole-dipole survey in follow-up to the gradient-array survey, which will provide a 3-dimensional image with accuracy to a depth of 200 metres within the areas of interest and thus provide important targets, i.e. Target Zone A and Target Zone B, for planned drilling during the upcoming Mongolian winter. Target Zones A and B have approximate areas of 0.71 km2 and 0.16 km2.

Tony Bainbridge, the Chief Operating Officer and a director of Garrison, and a "qualified person" under National Instrument 43-101, has supervised and executed the geological work program to date on the Tuvshir Property. Mr. Bainbridge has verified and approved all scientific and technical disclosure contained in this press release with respect to Garrison and the Tuvhsir Project.
