Gentor Resources Commences Drilling At Its Oman Copper Projects

Toronto, Canada - July 6, 2010 - GENTOR RESOURCES, INC. ("Gentor" or the "Company") (OTCBB - "GNTO.OB") is pleased to announce that drilling for massive sulphide copper has commenced on its Oman properties. An initial 5,000 metre drilling program is underway to test a portion of the 56 targets which were identified by the airborne VTEM survey flown in March/April 2010.

This initial drill program is designed to test between 10 and15 of the highest priority targets, which have been ranked on the basis of:

  • strength and size of the VTEM (conductive) anomaly;
  • proximity to the most favorable stratigraphic position as represented by the contact between V1-1 and V1-2 extrusive basaltic units (representing a specific time horizon);
  • proximity to perpendicular sea-floor faulting; such faults often form feeder channels for massive sulphides in the sea-floor spreading environment;
  • association with metalliferous sediments (or "umbers") and cherts, which can develop along strike from volcanogenic massive sulphide lenses on the sea-floor;
  • surface gossans and the occurrence of copper as malachite and azurite principally at outcrop; and
  • alteration of the basaltic units with silicification, chlorite, epidote and pyrite (iron staining).
The Company is in the process of commissioning a technical report as to its Oman Properties which is expected to be completed later in 2010..
