Goldbrook Announces Start of Raglan Drilling Program, 2009

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 29, 2009) -


Goldbrook Ventures Inc. ("Goldbrook") (TSX VENTURE:GBK) is pleased to announce that crews have mobilized to the company's Belanger base camp in the western portion of its Raglan belt, Ungava, Quebec properties, as of June 13th. Senior geological staff and camp management personnel are on site and the first drill hole of a 15,000 metre program commenced on the Far East anomaly in the Delta region, on Sunday, June 28th.

Goldbrook is also pleased to announce that it has received a third advance on funding for the 2009 exploration program from its partner Jilin Jien Nickel Industry Co., Ltd., of Jilin, China. This advance of $4,500,000 brings the funding received to a total of $13,400,000 towards the planned $15,000,000 exploration budget for 2009.

This year's exploration program includes in excess of 15,000 metres of drilling; more than sixteen high priority targets have been selected for drill testing, most of which are new showings with geological and geophysical characteristics similar to previous discoveries at the company's Mystery, Getty and Sylvie zones. In addition, there will be an extensive program of geological mapping and geochemistry to improve the company's knowledge of the setting and characteristics of the ultramafic rocks in the property area. Goldbrook also plans over 9000 line-kilometres of new VTEM surveys in three separate blocks within the northwest, northeast and southeast portions of their extensive tenure holdings. By previous company experience VTEM surveys have proven to be highly valuable and a key element to identifying new target zones for Raglan-style Ni-Cu-PGE sulphide mineralization.

Brian Grant, P.Geo. (President & COO), Jamie Pardy P.Geo. (Goldbrook's Exploration Manager), and Ginette Carter, P.Geo. a consulting geologist to Goldbrook, are the designated Qualified Persons for Goldbrook Venture's Raglan Project. These individuals will supervise the drilling program, geological surveys and ensure quality control/assurance programs for the Raglan project during 2009.
