Golden Goliath is pleased to report that preparatory work is underway for exploration programs to be conducted on two of the Company's properties, in addition to the ongoing exploration program on Nopalera. All properties are 100% owned by the Company.

Nopalera - the Company's surface exploration program is continuing as we compile data and generate drill targets for the first ever diamond drill program to be conducted on the property. The Mexican government has already begun to widen and pave the final 45 kilometres of gravel road leading to the Town of Uruachic and the new discovery made by Fresnillo PLC, which is adjacent to the Nopalera property. This important new deposit, called Orisyvo, already has a resource of over 9 million ounces of gold and could be larger as exploration is continuing Fresnillo has stated that it will update the resource in the first quarter of 2012.

Corona - Joint venture partner Comstock Metals Ltd. (V.CSL) has a crew on the Corona property undertaking preparatory work in advance of a planned drilling program to be undertaken in the near term. The drill machine is onsite and drill pads have been prepared.

Las Bolas/Los Hilos - Agnico-Eagle has sent field personnel to Uruachic to begin preparing for their upcoming exploration program on the Las Bolas/Los Hilos Property.

In addition, the TSX Venture Exchange has accepted for filing the Earn-In and Shareholders Agreement dated November 23, 2011, between Golden Goliath Resources Ltd. and Agnico-Eagle Mines Ltd., whereby the Company will give Agnico-Eagle the right to earn a 51-per-cent interest in the Las Bolas/Los Hilos property by spending $5-million on the property over five years. Following this, Agnico-Eagle will have the right to earn an additional 20-per-cent interest by spending $4-million over another period of four years and completing a feasibility study or by spending $10-million over a longer period of eight years. If any party's interest in the property is reduced to 10% or less then that party's interest will revert to a 2% royalty which the other party can purchase half at any time for $1,000,000.
