Greystar Resources Disappointment at Early Termination of Public Hearing in Bucaramanga

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 7, 2011) -

- The Company will continue with its policy of disclosing all relevant technical, social and environmental
information about the Angostura Project.

- Greystar remains keen to find platforms that allow for the discussion and analysis of all the ongoing
concerns regarding the Angostura Project with interested parties.

Greystar Resources Ltd. (the "Company") (TSX:GSL)(AIM:GSL) expresses disappointment over the early
termination of the March 4th, 2011 environmental public hearing with respect to the Angostura Project (the
"Project"). This hearing was scheduled by the Ministry of the Environment, Housing and Territorial
Development (MAVDT) as part of the ongoing application process for securing the environmental permit
necessary for the Project. The purpose of the hearing was to obtain public testimony or comments on the
Project's Environmental Impact Study.

Unfortunately confrontations during the event resulted in the representatives of the Ministry of Environment,
Housing, and Territorial Development cancelling the public hearing after 28 of the inscribed 470 statements
had been heard.

Greystar was joined at the Public Hearing by the various national and international companies that assisted
in the development of the Environmental Impact Study and its related studies. The collected efforts of these
companies, which include AMEC (Canada, Australia and Chile), GRD Minproc (Australia and Chile), Ausenco-
Vector (Peru), NCL Ingenieria and Metallica Consultores (Chile), Schlumberger Water Services (England and
Chile), McClelland Laboratories (USA), SGS Laboratories (Canada, Chile and South Africa), G&T Metallurgical
Services (Canada), Knight Piesold (Chile), ESA (Colombia), ISA (Colombia), Ingetec (Colombia), Ingeorriesgos
(Colombia), Estudios T-rural (Colombia) and Strathcona Mineral Services (Canada), have helped to fashion a
safe, responsible, environmentally and socially sustainable project for the Department of Santander.

These international experts were expected to present their respective statements and supporting reports but
did not have the opportunity to do so.

Steve Kesler, President and CEO commented: "We thank all of those who were willing to listen and convey their
points of view, including those expressing concerns and opposition on the project. However, the spirit of
respectful dialogue necessary to understand concerns so that they can be addressed was missing at this
hearing. Clearly there are divisions within communities and within authorities on this project. Greystar will
only develop a project with the support of both. We will work with the relevant authorities in the review of
the project in order to determine whether modifications are possible that address concerns whilst ensuring an
economically viable and environmentally sustainable project."

Greystar Resources will complete all necessary steps to ensure that the Angostura Project will not affect the
water supply or its quality to the town of Bucaramanga, the surrounding metropolitan area, or the North Soto
Province. We shall continue to inform citizens fully about our proposed mining project and to encourage an
understanding that responsible mining can bring considerable economic and social benefits, not only to the
region, but to the country as a whole."
