Greystar Confirms Request for a Second Public Hearing and Provides Feasibility Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2010) - Greystar Resources Ltd. (the
"Company")(TSX:GSL)(AIM:GSL) announces that on December 20, 2010, it was notified by the Ministry of
Environment, Housing and Territorial Development (MAVDT) of a request for a second public hearing about the
Company's Angostura Project, contained within Writ No. 4251 dated December 3rd, 2010. MAVDT's decision to hold
a second hearing is based on the fact that certain participants previously registered to address the general
public during the first hearing were, in their view, unable to participate on account of alleged restrictions
in the roads heading to the town of California (Santander). The Company will be coordinating a meeting with the
MAVDT to define matters related to place and date of the second hearing, as well as to further understand the
grounds for this petition.

Nevertheless, the first public hearing held this past November 21st, 2010 has not been questioned legally and
has therefore complied with the requirements established under Colombian Law (Law 99 of 1993 and Decree 330 of
2007). No ruling to the contrary has been issued, to the actual knowledge of the Company. Additional hearings
that may be ordered by the MAVDT will be analyzed under applicable legal norms in force.

As a matter of public knowledge, requests for additional hearings have been made by certain groups opposed to
the project, some of whom decided not to attend the public hearing held on November 21st, 2010.

When the time comes and with full respect for applicable norms, the Company will diligently support any
additional public hearings that are ordered within the rule of law.

Feasibility Study Update

The Company also announces that the feasibility study for its 100% owned Angostura Project will be completed in
early 2011 and not before the end of 2010 as previously advised.

The feasibility study summary has been received and is under internal review by the Company's Project team. In
addition, the Company has retained Alquimia Conceptos, a Santiago based engineering group, to complete an
external review to confirm the robustness of the engineering principals used and identify potential further
optimizations to be incorporated in the detailed engineering phase.

With regard to ongoing project development, the Company is in discussions with selected EPCM consultants with
the view to defining detailed engineering once the pending Environmental License is approved.
