Gold Summit Plans $750,000 Private Placement

RENO, NEVADA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - Gold Summit Corporation (TSX VENTURE:GSM) ("GSM" or the "Company") intends to raise up to CDN$750,000 in a non-brokered private placement, by issuing 3,750,000 common shares at a price of $0.20 per common share. The private placement is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. GSM may pay finder's fees in connection with this financing.

GSM plans to use the funds to complete National Instrument 43-101 technical reports on its Sugarloaf Peak/Tip Top and Monte Cristo properties, to fund metallurgical and engineering studies at Tip Top, fund this season's work on the Great Basin Playa lithium project joint venture with Canada Lithium Corp. and for general working capital purposes.

GSM explores primarily in Nevada for high grade gold and gold/silver deposits that would support underground, low cash cost operations. GSM's primary properties cover four Tertiary epithermal vein districts. All these have drill ready targets defined by surface work with potentially economic gold and or silver grades in outcrops or discovery drill holes.

On July 10, 2009 the company announced that it had optioned the Sugarloaf Peak prospect and is completing a NI 43-101 compliant estimate of a resource at the Tip Top mine. The company's flagship property, Monte Cristo, contains a 43-101 compliant inferred resource estimate of 331,000 tonnes averaging 6.5 g/t gold. This resource estimate, dated February 2 2006, is currently being revised to incorporate subsequent drilling results. High grade shoots that form the heart of the resource are open down plunge and the company plans work to extend these.

The company is also exploring playa basins for lithium brines in a joint venture with Canada Lithium Corp. The company is the operator for the joint venture.
