Onjuul drilling update


VANCOUVER, Nov. 24 /CNW/ - Robert L. Card, President of Gulfside Minerals Ltd. ("Gulfside" or the "Company"), is pleased to report from the Mongolian camp site that the first hole of Gulfside's drilling program on the Onjuul coal project in Mongolia has been completed, and yielded preliminary information for comparison.

This first hole was located as an offset to hole No.12 of the Russian/Mongolian exploration program from 1973 which was completed at a depth of 90.5 meters. The first hole, NL-09-22C TB001, was cored to 120 meters and then changed to rotary drilling as a faster and more cost effective method. The GPS location is 538626E x 5167713N. The hole was completed at a depth of 201 meters.
