Grenville Finds High Ridge News Release Defamatory

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - October 16, 2007) - Grenville Gold Corporation ("Grenville" or "the Company") (TSX-V: GVG) (PINKSHEETS: GVLGF) (FRANKFURT: F9I) (WKN: A0KELU) has reviewed the recent news release by High Ridge Resources relating to their inability to access their properties near Grenville's Silveria Property. The Company confirms that it has contacted its Peru offices, Mr. Gill and Mr. De Melt and all are unaware of any criminal proceedings. No papers have been served to the Company, Mr. Gill or Mr. De Melt, nor has there been any contact with any government officials on this matter. Should any such proceeding come to light, Grenville and its Officers and Directors will defend the company vigorously. The Company finds the news release by High Ridge defamatory.

As previously stated in a news release dated July 17, 2007, Grenville has indicated it has purchased the surface rights in the area of four silver mines in Peru. The road through the 3393 Ha owned by Grenville is a private road. Further, in a news release dated August 31, 2007, Grenville indicated the private road through its properties was closed for safety reasons due to damage to the road. The Company was acting responsibly to ensure safety of those using the road. Any company wishing to access the road must have an agreement with Grenville, which owns the surface rights. High Ridge has no such agreement with Grenville.
