Golden Peaks Resources Limited (the Company) (TSX:GL) is pleased to update drilling on the Tanoyan Gold Project on Sulawesi Island, Indonesia. The company has completed 1877 meters (15 drill holes) of the initial 5000 meter drill program.

The first holes tested for extensions of high-grade mineralisation intersected previously within the Sondana Vein in hole TND002 (Figure 1)( http://www.goldenpeaks.com/i/maps/image003.jpg) which intersected four zones of mineralisation, including 10m @ 8.81 g/t Au from 31m and 20m @ 3.1 g/t Au from 138m

Currently there are 2 drill rigs operating around the clock on the project, the second drill rig was moved from Palopo to Tanoyan in early May to accelerate the drilling. This is allowing work crews on the Palopo gold project to map the possible extension of Mangkaluku vein system prior to the proposed drill program.

They are now a total of 62 employees, including 50 locals associated with the exploration/drilling program at Tanoyan.

This press release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. John Levings, B.Sc., MAusIMM, director of Reliance Resources Limited and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, under whose direction the exploration programs are being carried out.
