Gulfside Minerals Ltd. - Onjuul Phase 1 drilling complete

TSX.V - GMG

VANCOUVER, Dec. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Robert L. Card, President of Gulfside Minerals Ltd. (TSXV:GMG) ("Gulfside" or the "Company"), is pleased to report that Phase 1 of Gulfside's drilling program on the Onjuul coal project in Mongolia has been successfully completed. The Company has completed 10 planned holes in this phase, with an additional 10 or more holes planned to be completed during Phase 2.

Based on preliminary data review, it appears that the Phase 1 program will accomplish the original objectives, as follows:

- Validate historic drilling data;
- Acquire new coal quality data;
- Acquire basic hydrology and geotechnical information;
- Confirm existing geological model; and
- Demonstrate the opportunity in the remaining phases of drilling.
Drill holes 1 to 8 have been previously reported. Listed below are the results from drill holes 9 and 10 along with a summary of all holes drilled to date.



The ninth hole, NJ-09-31R, a rotary hole, was drilled to a depth of 162.0 meters and encountered a 42.4 meter coal seam between 62.7 and 105.1. Seam intercepts are as follows:

The tenth hole, NJ-09-32R, a rotary hole, was drilled to a depth of 200.0 meters and encountered a 8.1 meter coal seam between 61.1 and 69.2. Seam intercepts are as follows:

The newly acquired data will be analyzed and evaluated by Norwest. Seam correlations will be conducted and the geologic model will be updated. It is anticipated that the Phase 2 drilling plan may be modified to account for the model update and to optimize exploration expenditures.

The core for all holes has been logged and delivered to the Stewart Mongolia, LLC laboratory in Ulaanbaatar. Coal quality testing has begun. The camp has been put on maintenance status and the crews have gone home to spend the holidays with their families.

Phase 2 drilling is scheduled to resume early in the New Year, 2010. Once additional drilling has been completed and laboratory results analyzed, the Company will be in the position to further evaluate the viability of the coal project for a coal liquefaction project. Independent geological and engineering studies will be required to determine if this potential use is technically and economically viable.
