ABOUT GARSON GOLD

Garson Gold holds a 100% interest in The New Britannia Mine (NBM) Project in Snow Lake Manitoba and the Copper Prince and the McMillan Gold Mine properties 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 which 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 and states the total property resource inventory at 449,000 oz Au (2,605,000 tonnes grading 5.37 g/t) in the measured and indicated categories and 317,000 oz Au (1,886,000 tonnes grading 5.22 g/t) in the inferred category. Infrastructure at the New Britannia Gold Mine includes a fully-permitted 2,150 tonne per day modern mill and tailings facility, an associated plant, and equipment. Garson is nearing completion of its Preliminary Economic Assessment to evaluate rehabilitation of the mill and the ramp for the No 3 Zone, and an updated resource estimate is currently underway and is expected to include the Boundary Zone, a satellite deposit located one kilometre from the Main mine and mill.
