THIS NEWS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Goldsource Mines Inc. ("Goldsource" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GXS)(FRANKFURT:G5M) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Canaccord Genuity Corp. ("Canaccord Genuity" or the "Agent") to act as agent on a commercially reasonable efforts basis, in connection with the offering for sale, by way of a TSX Venture Exchange Short Form Offering Document, of up to 3,636,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.55 per Unit for gross proceeds of up to $1,999,800 (the "Short Form Offering"). Each Unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one-half of one common share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a "Warrant"). Each Warrant will entitle the holder to subscribe for one additional common share at a price of $0.70 for a period of 24 months from the date of closing.

In addition to the Short Form Offering, the Company has negotiated a commercially reasonable efforts private placement ("Brokered Private Placement") with Canaccord Genuity for approximately $1 million in any combination of units (the "PP Units") at $0.55 per PP Unit (up to a maximum of 1,830,000 PP Units) and flow-through common shares (the "Flow-Through Shares") at a price of $0.60 per Flow-Through Share (up to a maximum of 835,000 Flow-Through Shares). Each PP Unit will have the same terms as the Units offered under the Short Form Offering. The Company has also granted the Agent an option to solicit additional subscriptions for PP Units and Flow-Through Shares, exercisable 48 hours prior to closing, to raise additional gross proceeds of up to $150,975.

On closing of the Short Form Offering and Brokered Private Placement (the "Offerings"), the Company will pay the Agent a cash fee equal to 6.5% of the gross proceeds raised through the Offerings and will issue to the Agent warrants (the "Agent's Warrants") equal to 6.5% of the aggregate number of Units, PP Units and Flow-Through Shares issued pursuant to the Offerings. Each Agent's Warrant shall be exercisable into one common share of the Company at a price of $0.70 per common share for a period of 24 months from the closing of the Offerings.

The funds raised from the Offerings will be used to fund on-going work programs on the Company's properties and for general working capital purposes.

Closing of the Offerings is anticipated to occur on or before May 12, 2011 and is subject to the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals including approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
