GGL Diamond Corp.: Extension and Change to Non-Brokered Private Placement to Raise Up to $1,400,000

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 14, 2009) -

NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Raymond A. Hrkac, President and CEO of GGL Diamond Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GGL) ("GGL") announces that GGL intends to extend by thirty days the financing to raise up to $1,400,000 by way of a non-brokered private placement. To date 1,776,000 non-flow-through units have been sold. A combination of flow-through units at a price of $0.06, (changed from $0.08), per unit and non flow-through units at a price of $0.06 per unit will be sold. Each flow-through unit will consist of one flow-through common share and one half of one non-transferable non flow-through warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share for one year from the closing date at $0.10 per share.

Each non flow-through unit will consist of one non flow-through common share and one half of one non-transferable common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will entitle the holder to purchase one non flow-through common share for three years from the closing date at $0.10 per share in the first year, $0.20 per share in the second year and $0.30 per share in the third year.

If GGL's common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange at a closing price greater than $0.50 per share for twenty consecutive trading days at any time after four months and one day from the closing date, GGL may accelerate the expiry of the warrants by giving notice to the holders thereof, and in such case the warrants will expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given. GGL may pay a finder's fee to eligible finders of purchasers of units. Such fees will be paid in non flow-through common shares.

The proceeds from the sale of the units will be used for trenching, sampling and drilling of the PGB gold areas, exploration on the McConnell property, and for general corporate purposes. The proceeds from the sale of the flow-through shares will be used to incur Canadian Exploration Expense ("CEE"), as defined in the Income Tax Act (Canada). GGL will renounce such CEE to the subscribers effective for the 2009 tax year. The private placement is subject to acceptance for filing by the TSX Venture Exchange.
