Grandview Gold Inc. Closes $605,000 Flow-Through Financing With MineralFields Group; To Continue Red Lake Drilling to Verify Historic Resource at Dixie Lake Project

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 4, 2011) - Grandview Gold Inc. (TSX:GVX)(OTCBB:GVGDF) ("Grandview" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that, it has closed a non-brokered private placement (the "Placement") with the MineralFields Group. The Placement resulted in the issuance by Grandview of a total of 8,066,666 flow-through units in the capital of Grandview (the "Flow-Through Units") at a purchase price of $0.075 (CAD) per Flow-Through Unit for gross proceeds to Grandview of $605,000. Each Flow-Through Unit consists of one common share of Grandview issued on a flow-through basis and one-half of one common share purchase warrant ("Warrant"). Each whole Warrant is exercisable to acquire one further common share of Grandview on a non-flow-through basis at a price of $0.15 for the first 12 months following issuance and at $0.20 for the second twelve months.

In connection with the Placement, the Company paid eligible persons (the "Finders") a cash fee of 6.0% of the gross proceeds raised through each Finder under the Offering and also issued finder's warrants (each a "Finder's Warrant") equal to 7.5% of the total number of Flow-Through Units placed by such Finders. Each Finder's Warrant entitles the holder to acquire one unit (each a "Finder's Unit" and collectively the "Finder's Units") with each Finder's Unit being comprised of one common share of the Company on a non-flow-though basis and one-half of one Warrant on the same terms as above, expiring December 31, 2012. On closing, the Company paid $36,300.00 in cash fees to the Finders and issued 604,999 Finder's Warrants to the Finders. In addition, Grandview also paid a cash diligence fee of $10,254.75 in connection with the Placement.

"The Company will use the proceeds of this financing for continuation of drilling at our Dixie Lake Property in the Red Lake Gold District," says Grandview President & CEO Paul Sarjeant. "The program is intended to bring a historic non-43-101 mineral resource of 1.1 million short tons at 0.1 ounces per ton estimated by Teck Exploration Ltd (1989-90) to 43-101 compliance, and also pursue down-dip extensions of the 88-4 and 88-4 West Zones which assayed highly prospectively during our 2008 and 2009 drill programs.

At Grandview's near-term gold-producing property, Giulianita, in Piura, Peru, the Company's South American team continues working with local authorities and community groups, strengthening relationships and evolving the environmental and geological assessment protocols necessary for sustainable development of the project. "It is our goal to implement our small-scale mines model as soon as possible in the new year, and move closer to a cash-flow-positive environment to help fund Canadian exploration programs, including a geophysics program at our Sanshaw-Bonanza Property, contiguous to the west and southern boundary of the Red Lake Gold Mines Limited/Premiere Gold Mines Limited Rahill-Bonanza JV property." In the interim, this flow-thru financing should help us establish a 43-101 compliant resource at Dixie Lake, and improve the net asset value of the Company," adds Mr. Sarjeant.

The securities issued pursuant to the Placement will all be subject to a four (4) month statutory hold period commencing from the date of issuance. All proceeds raised from the sale of Flow-Through Units will be used by the Company to finance qualified Canadian exploration and development expenditures on its Canadian resource properties.

About Dixie Lake

Grandview has an option agreement with Fronteer Development Group and has earned a 67% interest in the 1,664 hectare Dixie Lake property located 16 miles south of Goldcorp's Red Lake Mine. The Property has an established gold resource (Teck, 1989), estimating a tonnage for the 88-4 zone of 1.1 million tons grading 0.10 ounces gold per ton. This gold resource included high grade intercepts up to 15.60 g/t gold over 2.83m (from DL89-09) at depths of less than 50m. Grandview has not completed the work required to verify this historical estimate and is not treating this historical estimate as being compliant with current standards under 43-101 and as such this historical estimate should not be relied upon.
