Goldbrook Receives Additional Funding for 2009 Exploration Program

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


Goldbrook Ventures Inc. ("Goldbrook") (TSX VENTURE:GBK) is pleased to announce that it has received the second installment of funding which brings the total cash advances received to $8,900,000 for the 2009 exploration program, from Jilin Jien Nickel Industry Co., Ltd., Jilin, China. This year's exploration program will include over 15,000 metres of diamond drilling, in addition to airborne geophysical surveys, regional mapping programs and geochemical surveys. This program will follow-up on the highly successful 2008 program, which resulted in the discovery of extensive nickel sulphides within the Mystery zone.

The 2009 exploration program, which is planned to be in excess of $15 million dollars, will test new and positive results from completed geophysical, geochemical and geological surveys. Goldbrook plans to open the Belanger exploration camp about mid June and will mobilize at least three drill rigs to test new targets within the Mystery-Delta region. The company plans extensive new geological survey work and airborne ZTEM surveys over selected target areas.

The primary exploration focus will be to extend the limits of the new Mystery discovery and test additional new geophysical targets in the immediate Mystery area. The drill program will also test newly defined, strong coincident geophysical, geochemical and geological anomalies within the areas at Pillow Lake, Getty North, Getty West, Ben, Pad, Timtu, Bravo, the Cecilia and River Flats areas (east and west of Xstrata's Delta deposit), and other sites.

Goldbrook has expended considerable effort over the winter months working with geophysical consultants to review and analyze the company geophysical databases and also to compile and analyze geochemical and geological data for the property. The result of this work has been the identification of a significant number of new targets for drill testing within the Mystery-Delta region. This 2009 program will better define the Ni-Cu-Co-PGE sulphide potential within the company's extensive Raglan nickel belt property holdings.
