GLR Updates Drilling Progress at Box Deposit

KIRKLAND LAKE, ON--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - GLR Resources (TSX: GRS) is pleased to provide the following drill progress report from the Company's Box Mine property located within the Goldfields project in Northern Saskatchewan. A total of 13 holes have been drilled to date.

A significant highlight of this drilling campaign is hole B07-294 which returned 6.316 g/t gold over 19 metres.

Holes BO7-286 to B07-291 were condemnation drill holes and were necessary to demonstrate that no significant mineralization is present at proposed locations for mill buildings and waste rock dumps. As expected, no economic assays were encountered on these holes.

Holes BO7-292 to B07-298 were completed into the Box Mine Granite formation (BMG) located below the proposed open pit location. Assay results are pending for holes BO7-295 to B07-298.

Results are presented below for holes BO7-292 to B07-294.

*All assays were cut to 60 g/t. Assaying is by the total metallic method to eliminate any loss of the coarse gold fraction during sample processing in the assay lab. All samples were assayed at TSL Laboratories Inc. of Saskatoon, an ISO/IEC 17025 Laboratory.

Holes B07-292 and B07-294 had several assays above the Box Mine Granite formation (BMG) of up to 3.71 g/t Au over 2 metres and up to 8.98 g/t Au over 1 metre respectively. However, much of the core was not assayed in these areas. This is presently being assayed and results will be reported as soon as received.

Additional drilling is in progress to trace the extension of the Box Mine Granite formation (BMG) to the southwest. Additional drilling of the Athona deposit is planned for the New Year. GLR has a budget of $2M for drilling in and around the Box and Athona gold deposits.

Commenting on this drilling, Bob Kasner, President and CEO, noted, "Hole B07-294 certainly is an encouraging hole and hopefully we will get more like this as we go deeper. This hole is 80 metres below the proposed pit which lends support to the premise that there is potential to increase the present Box deposit resource considerably. I am also pleased to see the increase in drilling progress at Goldfields."
