GGL Prepares for Mini-Bulk Sampling of the Doyle Kimberlite Sill and Summer Drilling on the Doyle and CH Properties

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - June 29, 2005) - NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWS WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNTIED STATES

Raymond A. Hrkac, President and CEO of GGL Diamond Corp. (TSX VENTURE:GGL) is pleased to provide an update on the Company's diamond exploration activities in the Lac de Gras and Gahcho Kue areas of the Northwest Territories, Canada.

Doyle Project: The 100%--owned Doyle claims are situated in a highly prospective area of the Northwest Territories, adjacent to the Gahcho Kue (Kennady Lake) cluster of diamondiferous kimberlite pipes. On the Company's Doyle property a diamondiferous kimberlite still has been traced two kilometers along strike, dipping gently to the northwest and averaging two metres in thickness. To further evaluate the potential of this sill, the Company is currently placing crews and equipment on the property to begin collecting a 20 to 40 tonne mini-bulk sample for diamond analysis by dense media separation.

The summer program will also include core drilling to extend the trace of the kimberlite sill in the down-dip direction, as well as to continue to drill-test anomalies independent of the sill. A spring program of ground geophysics and a review of previous surveys over a number of areas was successful in outlining existing targets as well as revealing new anomalous area.

The result of the mini-bulk study will be used in combination with the core drill program to determine the next phase of exploration of the sill. The Doyle property as a whole contains a number of exciting target areas and the core drill program conducted this summer is designed to test only two of these. The results of these tests will aid in interpretation of the ground geophysical methods and the target selection for next year.

CH Project: The CH project area lies just to the southwest and to the west of the Lac de Gras kimberlite field, host to Canada's two diamond mines. The Company has confirmed a number of promising targets on these claims and is proceeding to conduct a core drill program in late summer to test previously defined anomalies. These are only a few of the strong targets that exist on the claims, many of which are water-based. The Company plans to proceed to continue the anomaly tests during the winter drill season.

Summer work on the CH claims will also include ground checks of select geophysical targets complemented by indicator mineral sampling. This is expected to add to the list of drill-ready targets for next winter and summer.
