Gold Port Announces Secondary Non-Brokered Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2010) - Gold Port Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GPO) is pleased to announce a secondary non-brokered private placement of up to 20 million units at a price of $0.085 per unit, for total gross proceeds of up to $1,700,000. Each unit will consist of one common share and one common share purchase warrant. Each warrant allows the holder to purchase an additional common share of the Company for a two year period at a price of $0.13. A portion of the secondary non-brokered private placement will be subject to a finder's fee that may be payable in cash, shares or warrants with respect to certain private placement subscribers and in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange. The above secondary non-brokered private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.

Proceeds from the Private Placement(s) will be used to initiate an extensive exploration program at the Groete Creek / Georgetown West Project area. The program will include the establishing of a grid across both project areas, surface sampling utilizing the Company owned Geoprobe sampling system, surface sampling employing SGS Laboratories Mobile Metal Ion Geochemistry technology, and drilling of the known gold zone utilizing the Company owned Acker track mounted drill system.

Groete Creek was originally explored by the United Nations Mineral Survey and subsequently, Coeur d'Alene Mines (TSX:CDM). The exploration which included drilling allowed Coeur d'Alene Mines to calculate by using a simple polygonal method, a non-NI 43-101 compliant resource of approximately 94 million tonnes grading 0.6 grams per tonne gold and 0.11% copper (Caution: The issuer has not done the work necessary to verify the classification of the resource or reserve, the issuer is not treating them as a NI 43-101 defined resource or reserve verified by a qualified person, and the historical estimate should not be relied upon). The drill program will attempt to confirm and expand upon this area of gold mineralization.

On Behalf of the Board of Directors of Gold Port Resources Ltd.
