Grenville Secures Bella Rubia S.M.R.L. and Aims at Bulk Sampling Veins at Silveria

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 17, 2009) - Grenville Gold Corporation ("Grenville" or "the Company"), (TSX VENTURE:GVG)(PINK SHEETS:GVLGF)(FRANKFURT:F9I)(WKN:A0KELU) announces that Minera Grenville S.A.C., Grenville's 99.99% owned subsidiary, has completed the purchase of all shares of Bella Rubia S.M.R.L. As owners of Bella Rubia S.M.R.L., Grenville is the current owner of the assets of Bella Rubia which are 11 claims totaling 148 Ha within the Silveria area.

Grenville currently owns a total of 6,122 hectares at Silveria. The property is not encumbered by a Net Smelter Royalty (NSR) or further option payments. Grenville has appointed a new Manager for Bella Rubia S.M.R.L. and is working on re-establishing its exploration and development permits. Grenville plans to remove bulk samples for testing at a local mill to determine ore composition and metal recoveries. Grenville expects to expand the operation if positive results are obtained and if sufficient ore is identified during the exploration program.

"Grenville is continuing with its goals of developing the Silveria Property", stated A. Paul Gill, CEO. "We continue to engage in positive dialogue with all stakeholders in the area to attract interest. Furthermore, we have recently hired Gateway Solutions S.A.C and Luc Pigeon M.Sc., P.Geo to oversee our Peruvian interests and insure transparency during the upcoming exploration program. Mr. Pigeon and Gateway Solutions are independent from Grenville.

Another company has claimed that an option on the Bella Rubia claims exists pre-dating Grenville's ownership. Securing Bella Rubia S.M.R.L. protects Grenville's investment in the Bella Rubia claims.

Grenville President and CEO A. Paul Gill held meetings in Peru with groups interested in the projects owned by Grenville. Grenville is in the process of preparing further documents for review.
