Gulf Shores Resources Ltd.: News Release

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - April 9, 2007) - Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:GUL)

The Laurel Valley 14/28a-5 well has been drilled to total depth, evaluated and plugged and abandoned as no hydrocarbons were encountered in commercial quantities. The drilling of the well has fulfilled the terms and conditions of the farmin agreement and Gulf Shores Resources has earned a 9.4% interest in Seaward Production Licenses P1089 and P1295. Data obtained from the 14/28a-5 well will be integrated into geological and geophysical models to evaluate the remaining prospectivity of blocks 14/28a, 14/29b and 14/23b.

As previously announced, Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. is paying US$75,000 and 15% of the cost of drilling, testing, completing and equipping a test well to earn a 10% interest in the 970 square kilometre (240,000 acre) Lytham & St. Annes project located in Quads 41 and 42 in the North Sea. The proposed location is seven kilometres south of the 41/5-1 gas discovery. 3D seismic coverage indicates that the block contains three potential hydrocarbon horizons. The well will be operated by Lundin Petroleum AB and is expected to commence drilling in Q3, 2007.

As previously announced, Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. has exercised its option to earn a 10% interest in the 72.5 square kilometre (approximately 18,000 acre) Ridgewood project located in Block 17a in Quad 12 in the North Sea by paying 15% of the cost of the first well. The proposed location is 35 kilometers northeast of the 170 million barrel Beatrice field and nine kilometres from the nearest proven Jurassic oil accumulation. Seismic coverage shows a structure containing two potential hydrocarbon bearing zones in the Jurassic. The project will be operated by Lundin Petroleum AB and is expected to commence drilling in Q3, 2007.

As previously announced, Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. is paying 20% of the cost of acquiring new 3-D seismic and 13.33% of the cost of drilling a test well to earn a 10% interest in a 422 square kilometre (approximately 104,000 acre) block located in Quad 30 in the North Sea. Recently acquired seismic indicates the block contains several Jurassic and Permian plays. A well drilled into one of the Jurassic plays logged oil but the well was abandoned due to insufficient zone thickness. 3-D seismic on the block indicates that the Jurassic thickens to the northwest of that well. Lundin Petroleum AB is the operator of this project.

Gulf Shores Resources Ltd. is currently negotiating with a major oil company to participate in a fifth project as part of its continuous active exploration program in the North Sea.
