GLR Resources: New Gold Zone Discovered

KIRKLAND LAKE, ON--(Marketwire - August 15, 2007) - GLR Resources (TSX: GRS) (FRANKFURT: GKF) Company has completed its first phase of diamond drilling on the Goldie Property consisting of 2,332 meters in 17 drill holes resulting in the discovery of a new, non-outcropping gold zone which appears to extend to the west of the current drilling. The 3,760 acre Goldie Property is located on the Trans-Canada Highway approximately 30 miles west of Thunder Bay, Ontario and is a joint-venture with RJK Exploration (TSX-V: RJX.A).

The widely spaced preliminary drilling was initiated to test several of the extensive Phase IP geophysical trends, including numerous local surface showings, on the property. The drilling program has resulted in a new auriferous horizon being discovered containing gold values of up to 3.01 g/t over 5.0 meters (16.4 feet) in a silicified, carbonated and brecciated zone that is distinctly hematized and sericitized and contains 2-8% pyrite, quartz, quartz-carbonate, and tourmaline veining with minor arsenopyrite.

Diamond drill core has been sawn, with half the core being stored at the MNDM core storage facilities, Conmee Township and the other half sent to Accurassay and ALS Chemex Laboratories of Thunder Bay, Ontario and Polymet Inc., Laboratories of Cobalt, Ontario.

Mr. J. Gary Clark, P.Geo., is the qualified person for the information contained in this press release and is a Qualified Person within the meaning of National Instrument 43-101.

Robert Kasner, GLR President and CEO, noted that "...this preliminary drill program has been extremely successful in that several targets on the property have been tested and that a new gold bearing structure has been discovered. We are encouraged with the discovery of this new, non-outcropping zone and in particular by the relatively few, widely spaced and shallow drill holes in this zone that contain strongly anomalous, gold contents over substantial near true widths. We are also encouraged with the possibility of hundreds of meters of untested on-strike extension (based on IP data) as well as the depth potential remaining to be tested on this zone. Gold values over good widths appear to increase towards the west along this horizon."

GLR Resources and RJK Exploration will be planning additional drill testing as soon as possible.
