VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Goldsource Mines Inc. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GXS) announces that it has received an additional 121 coal permit certificates from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Energy and Resources. The receipt of these certificates completes the issuance of permits for applications which had received priority status confirmed by the Ministry in a letter dated May 21, 2008. The permits cover its recently announced Border property coal discovery near Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan. A total of 176 coal permits have been issued to the Company to date. The Company's coal permits now comprise a total of approximately 135,100 hectares being an area of 1,351 square kilometres (To see attached map please click on the following link: http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/gxs0626.JPG). Approximately 7,000 hectares (70 square kilometres) originally applied for were not granted due to Crown Reserves, freehold interests and recreational areas. These exclusions are not in the initial target area, are on the periphery of the Border property and are not expected to impact the Company's exploration plans. The area covered by the permits is centered on the two core drill holes which resulted in the discovery of the coal intercepts previously announced (news releases dated April 22 and April 28, 2008). The permits allow the Company to explore the area for coal for a period of one year with two possible 6 month extensions and are convertible to a 15 year lease.
The Company expects to commence its initial exploration drilling in the priority area shown on the map during the second week of July, 2008. This initial drill program will consist of seven holes which are designed to outline an optimum inferred resource, provide data on coal quality and assist in defining the orientation of the potential coal basins.
