VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - Portal Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PDO) announces that the Company has disposed of its remaining assets in the Province of Mendoza, Argentina. Portal continues to reduce exposure to Argentina and conserve its treasury while reviewing opportunities in politically and socially stable countries to invest shareowners' money.

As previously announced in NR08-15, October 30, 2008: "Portal has received notification from Minera Rio de la Plata S.A. of a dispute concerning the agreement signed in 2004 covering the Tiger Project in the Province of Mendoza.

The Company has exhausted reasonable commercial means to resolve the dispute with Minera Rio de la Plata S.A. and will no longer pursue an interest in the Tiger Project.

Additionally, as previously announced in NR08-16, December 9, 2008: "Portal's subsidiary Portal de Oro S.A. has withdrawn its lawsuit against the government of Mendoza challenging the constitutionality of Anti Mining Law 7722."

With this in mind the Company has disposed of its last four Cateo's (mineral claims) in the Province for a nominal fee.
