Grandview Gold Inc. Signs Drill Contract; Plans to Verify Historic Red Lake Resource

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - Grandview Gold Inc. (TSX:GVX)(OTCBB:GVGDF) ("Grandview" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the signing of a diamond drill contract with Platinum Diamond Drilling of Winnipeg for work on the Company's Dixie Lake property (the "Property"), in the Red Lake Gold District. The 2,200 m, 10 hole program, will focus on verifying and extending the historic resources identified by previous workers at the 88-4 and 88-4 West Zones. The program is expected to begin mid-June and will run through to the end of July or early August, 2011.

"The Red Lake area has been spared from the prohibitive flooding and extreme weather conditions occurring elsewhere in Ontario and Manitoba, and we are pleased to be able to begin our Canadian exploration program, as planned," says Grandview President and CEO Paul Sarjeant, B.Sc, P.Geo. "Proceeds of our December flow-through financing will be used to continue drilling at the 88-4 and 88-4 West Zones at Dixie Lake. Our goal is to bring the historic non-NI 43-101 compliant mineral resource originally estimated by Teck Exploration (1989-90) of 417,000 short tons at 0.126 ounces per ton, and later estimated by Teck to indicate a possible tonnage of 1.1 million short tons at 0.1 ounces per ton, to formal NI 43-101 compliance. The program will also target select areas within the mineralized zones that currently lack information as we believe the 88-4 and 88-4 West zones are connected."

"Dixie Lake is highly prospective for Grandview due to its location in the Red Lake area, the historic work that has been done in and around the 88-4 Zone since 1945, and significant results of work undertaken by Grandview elsewhere on the Property from 2005 through 2009 - including NS Zone assays of 22.90 g/T Au over 2.86 m and 18.29 g/T over 2.20 m, with considerable visible gold in core. We reviewed the historic materials over the winter and together with our more recent data, created a new model and target map that indicates mineralization continues at depth and is open along strike in at least one direction on the Property," adds Mr. Sarjeant.

About Dixie Lake

Grandview has an option agreement with Newmont Mining Corporation (formerly Fronteer Gold Inc.) 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; upgraded from an original estimate of 417,000 short tons at 0.126 ounces per ton. 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 NI 43-101 and as such this historical estimate should not be relied upon.
