Results for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 2010

Thursday 25th November 2010

Galantas Gold Corporation ('Galantas' or the 'Company') results for the Three and Nine Months ended September 30th 2010 have been published.

The Net Income for the three months ended September 30, 2010 amounted to $ 156,982 compared to a Net Loss of $ 164,988 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The Net Income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 amounted to $ 1,001,368 compared to a Net Loss of $ 689,326 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. The main reason for the improved results in the nine months of 2010 is the increased production levels achieved during the first quarter together with the high gold prices that prevailed during the period. Production levels in the third quarter of 2010 were below those of the first quarter but above those of the second quarter.

Highlights of the Company's 2010 third quarter's and first nine months results, which are expressed in Canadian Dollars, are:
