Court Order results in delay of sale of Goldfields Assets

    KIRKLAND LAKE, ON, June 19 /CNW/ - GLR Resources Inc. ("GLR" or the
"Company") announces that the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "Court"),
the Honourable Mr. Justice Wilton-Siegel presiding, granted the request of
Santa Fe Metals Corp. ("Santa Fe") to adjourn the meeting of creditors
scheduled to be held in Toronto, Ontario.

    The Endorsement of the Court in respect to this matter was as follows:

    "As it appears that there is a substantial possibility of a significant
    additional unsecured claim that cannot be quantified and has therefore
    not yet been disclosed to the other creditors, I am satisfied that the
    request of the creditor asserting the claim for an adjournment of the
    meeting of creditors scheduled for June 22, 2009 is appropriate. Before
    the proposal can be addressed by the creditors, it is necessary to
    determine the respective rights of this creditor and the purchaser of the
    assets under the proposal to a date to be addressed on June 29, 2009 by
    this court".

    No date for reconvening the creditors meeting has been set.
    Pending resolution of the issues with Santa Fe, the sale of the Company's
Goldfield Assets to Linear Gold Corp. ("Linear"), originally scheduled for
June 30, 2009, will be delayed.
