Grandview and Marum to Explore the Gem Gold Property in the Bissett Gold Camp

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 30, 2005) - Grandview Gold Inc. (CNQ:GVGI) ("Grandview Gold" or the "Company") and Marum Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MMU) ("Marum") announced today that they has entered into an option agreement to jointly explore Marum's 100% owned Gem gold property at the eastern end of Manitoba's Rice Lake Greenstone Belt. The Gem property consists of 7 claims covering 1,594 hectares of expremely prospective ground containing rocks that have been altered by gold-bearing fluids.

Grandview can earn a 50% undivided interest in the Gem property by performing $250,000 in exploration work on the Property, at a cumulative rate of $125,000 by September 30, 2006 and $250,000 by September 30, 2007, such work to include a high-resolution aeromagnetic survey with a maximum 50-metre line spacing to be completed by March 31, 2006. Grandview will be the operator of the property until such time as its option to earn the 50% interest is exercised.

The Gem property is considered to be extremely prospective for gold on the basis of previous surface prospecting work performed by Marum that highlighted a gold-bearing zone, successful surface prospecting work performed on neighboring claims by another company, and the recommendation of the area by the Manitoba Geological Survey. The Survey's Report of Activities 2003 (GS-24) highlighted the area that includes the Gem property as containing favorable rock lithologies and vein systems that are ..... "Closely analogous to those hosting spectacular high-grade gold mineralization in the Red Lake mine in Ontario. The presence of this style of mineralization, which has not been documented previously, further underscores the tremendous exploration potential of the Rice Lake belt." Additionally, the Geological Survey report includes the observation that .... "the veins and the regional iron-carbonate alteration zones that host them, are substantially similar to those that host high-grade gold mineralization in the Red Lake gold camp of Ontario."
