GLR Resources Inc.: Goldfields Update Regarding Bank Loan

KIRKLAND LAKE, ON--(Marketwire - September 5, 2007) - GLR Resources Inc. (GLR) (TSX: GRS) (FRANKFURT: GKF) wishes to advise shareholders and others regarding the term sheet for the 40 million US$ project loan received from Investec Bank (UK) Limited ("Investec"). There have been a number of newsletter writers advising clients that junior companies that have project loans will likely have there loans pulled or a substantial increase in interest rates due to the current reported conditions in the banking markets.

GLR has been advised by Investec that there are no proposed changes to the term sheet and that the loan remains subject to due diligence and documentation. Due diligence is currently underway by Micon Engineering of Toronto, Canada who recently visited the Goldfields site on behalf of Investec. GLR has also been provided with indicative terms for a bridge loan from the Blackfish-Investec Fund to enable it to start ordering equipment for the mine.

Commenting on the above Bob Kasner, president and CEO, stated, "I can understand shareholder and investor concerns over the perceived liquidity problem currently affecting the loan markets. It is reassuring that Investec is still very supportive of the project and we are moving forward."
