Gulfside Minerals Ltd. - Additional licenses acquired

VANCOUVER, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Robert L. Card, President of Gulfside Minerals Ltd., ("Gulfside" or the "Company") (TSXV: GMG), is pleased to report that the Company has signed two Letters of Intent ("LOI") to acquire additional Licenses comprising 10,319 hectares (25,499 acres) adjoining its Onjuul and Black Hole projects to the north and north east which are located 170 km south west of Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia. The agreements call for payments in cash and shares over a 27 month period and are subject to TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX") approval.

Gulfside has engaged Norwest Corp., of Salt Lake City Utah ("Norwest"), to oversee the exploration of the Onjuul and Black Hole projects. Initial indications from the first phase of the drilling program suggest the coal bearing structure trends north and east into the licenses covered under the LOI's.

Phase 2 of the drilling program is scheduled to resume this spring with a goal to confirm and expand the current historical resource as well as step out into the newly acquired licenses.

The table below summarizes four of the closest holes to the proposed property. The total coal in all drill holes from the first phase of the drill program range from 16.50 meter to 57.70 meters and the thickest seams range from 8.10 meters to 42.40 meters. These results were reported on a news release dated December 22, 2009.
