Garson Gold Announces Drill Results From the Boundary and Kim Zones, New Britannia Mine Property, Snow Lake, Manitoba

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 20, 2008) - GARSON GOLD CORP. (TSX VENTURE:GG) ("Garson Gold" or "the Company") is pleased to announce diamond drilling results from the Boundary and Kim Zones on the Company's 100% owned New Britannia Mine (NBM) property at Snow Lake, Manitoba. A complete table of results are available on the Garson Gold website: www.garsongold.ca/i/pdf/TABLE-1-Assay-Results-for-Boundary-&-Kim-Zones.pdf, and highlights of the program are described below.

Most recent drilling on the NBM property has been focused on exploration and potential resource evaluation at the Boundary and Kim Zones. "The results of this drilling emphasize the near-surface, open-pit potential at the Boundary Zone," stated David Tafel, President of Garson Gold. "The results from the Kim and Boundary Zones, which are located very close to the known resource at the No.3 Zone, further validate our development strategy for the New Britannia Mine property."

The Boundary and Kim Zones are located between the New Britannia main mine and mill and the No. 3 Zone deposit (link to location map: http://www.garsongold.ca/i/maps/Britannia/NR-Boundary-&-Kim-Zones.jpg). As disclosed in previous news releases, the No. 3 Zone has been the main focus of the Company's 2008 drilling campaign and ongoing scoping study. The No. 3 Zone currently hosts a resource estimated at 394,000 tonnes at an average grade of 6.72 g/t gold (85,000 ounces) in the Indicated resource category and 575,000 tonnes at an average grade of 6.31 g/t gold (117,000 ounces) in the Inferred resource category (see Garson Gold news release June 9, 2008). The total mineral resource inventory for the NBM property can be viewed here: http://www.garsongold.ca/s/NewBritanniaMine.asp?ReportID=191902.

The Company is nearing completion of a scoping study to evaluate the economics of re-establishing mining at No. 3 Zone by reopening and extending the existing ramp and re-activating the 2,150 tonne/day mill which is currently on care and maintenance.

BOUNDARY ZONE

Previous drill results released by Garson Gold from the Boundary Zone include 15.66 g/t gold over an intersection length of 2.90 m (Garson Gold news release April 1, 2008) and an intersection of 7.67 g/t gold over an intersection length of 7.22 m (Garson Gold news release May 27, 2008). The most recent drilling includes 19 relatively short diamond drill holes that were planned, based on interpretation and up-dip projection of the previous drilling and surface trenching, to test the near surface potential of the Boundary Zone. A number of the drill holes intersected multiple horizons of gold mineralization including BDY08-57 which intersected 4 mineralized zones including an intersection of 10.88 m at an average grade of 2.76 g/t gold. The gold mineralization in the current Boundary Zone drilling has been intersected over a vertical interval from approximately 5 to 150 m below surface. The near surface Boundary Zone gold intercepts are currently being interpreted as a series of stacked lenses and evaluated for follow-up drilling and for open pit mining potential.

KIM ZONE

The Kim Zone is located in the structural footwall of the No.3 Zone and previous results include the intersection of 7.08 g/t gold over an intersection length of 4.54 m in drill hole KIM08-01 (Garson Gold news release May 27, 2008) and 7.00 g/t gold over an intersection length of 2.10 m in hole ZN307-15 (Garson Gold news release November 29, 2007). The intersections in KIM08-01 and ZN307-15 occur at vertical depths of approximately 75 m and 400 m respectively and a program of 10 holes was planned to test the potential plunge of mineralization between theses 2 holes. Multiple zones of relatively narrow mineralization were intersected with a highlight of 9.29 g/t gold over 0.76 m in hole KIM08-09. All of the Kim Zone drill results are currently being interpreted and evaluated for further exploration at the Kim Zone and adjacent geological environment.

QUALITY ASSURANCE/QUALITY CONTROL

Gold concentrations are determined on half core at TSL Laboratories in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan using conventional sample preparation and assay techniques. For details of sampling and analytical procedures used on the NBM project, see Garson's April 18, 2007 news release which can be viewed at www.garsongold.ca.

Jamie Lavigne, M.Sc., P.Geo and Vice President Exploration for Garson Gold, is the Qualified Person under NI 43-101 responsible for the verification and quality assurance of the NBM exploration data and analytical results and has reviewed the technical contents of this news release.

ABOUT THE NEW BRITANNIA MINE

Garson Gold holds a 100% interest in The New Britannia Mine (NBM) Project in Snow lake Manitoba, as well as the Copper Prince property, and the McMillan Gold Mine property located in Ontario. The Company's flagship project is the NBM, which covers approximately 4,840 hectares and hosts the historic New Britannia Gold Mine. NBM operated from 1949 to 1958 and again from 1995 to 2004 and produced approximately 1.43 million ounces of gold. The resource estimate at the NBM property, audited by Micon International Ltd. in accordance with CIM classifications pursuant to National Instrument 43-101, is available for viewing on Sedar (www.sedar.com) and www.garsongold.ca. A modern mill capable of processing 2,150 tonnes/day and ancillary surface and underground infrastructure facilities have been kept on care and maintenance since the NBM project was purchased by the Company in December 2006.
