Gowest Gold Completes Brokered Private Placement Financing Through Salman Partners

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2010) - Gowest Amalgamated Resources Ltd. ("Gowest" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GWA)(OTCBB:GWSAF) is pleased to announce the closing of its previously announced brokered private placement (the "offering") through Salman Partners Inc. ("Salman"). Salman placed a total of 9,379,837 "flow-through" common shares for gross proceeds of $2,579,455 (which included the full exercise of the over-allotment option granted to Salman). Salman received a cash commission of 7% of the gross proceeds raised. 

The gross proceeds of the offering will be used by Gowest to fund exploration and development work on the company's Frankfield Gold project which is located in the prolific Timmins Gold camp in Ontario, Canada.

After more than doubling the size of the mineralized envelope at the company's flagship Frankfield East gold deposit in 2010 to 775m along strike and 830m at depth, the company is focused on confirming and extending this gold mineralization through the mobilization of additional drill rigs early in 2011 to aggressively infill the existing mineralized envelope and to expand the envelope further, particularly at depth.

The company plans to release an updated 43-101 resource on the Frankfield East gold deposit in Q1, 2011 followed by a preliminary economic assessment (scoping study) thereafter.
