(CSE:GLM) ("GLM" or the "Company") reports that its initial Phase 1 reverse circulation ("RC") drill program on the company's keystone Jewel Ridge gold property, located near the town of Eureka, NV, is proceeding well. All three proposed holes on the Hamburg Mine target have been completed (total of 1,800 feet or 549 meters drilled) to target depths. The drill has now moved approximately 1.5 kilometers northwest to patented claims on the South Eureka Tunnel Target area. Drilling will continue on this target area for the remainder of the program.
The South Eureka Tunnel adit is located on the western side of valley, marked by a large area of tailings and dump material located to the north of the adit. Historic reports (Nolan, 1962) indicate that adit extended in a westerly direction for more than 1,800 feet (550 meters), however detailed information related to mine workings, production and geology are not available.

About the Jewel Ridge Property
The Jewel Ridge property is located on the south end of Nevada's prolific Battle Mountain - Eureka trend, along strike and contiguous to Barrick Gold's Archimedes/Ruby Hill gold mine to the north and Timberline Resources' advanced-stage Lookout Mountain project to the south.
The property comprises 96 unpatented lode mining claims and 30 patented claims covering approximately 728 hectares (1,800 acres). The Jewel Ridge property contains several historic small gold mines. The Company's focus is on Carlin-style disseminated gold deposits, the primary focus in the area since the late 1970s.
Nevada Carlin-type gold deposits (CTGD) have a combined endowment of more than 250 million ounces, which are concentrated (85 per cent) in only four trends or camps of deposits: Carlin, Cortez (Battle Mountain-Eureka), Getchell and Jerritt Canyon. The Company cautions that results on adjacent and/or nearby projects are not necessarily indicative of results on the Company's property.
