(TSX:G)(NYSE:GG) ("Goldcorp") has agreed to purchase, by way of private placement, 16,100,000 common shares (the "Common Shares") of the Company at a price of C$1.00 per Common Share for gross proceeds of C$16,100,000 (the "Financing").

The net proceeds of the Financing will be used to further advance the Company's Railroad-Pinion project and for general corporate and working capital purposes.

With the proceeds from the private placement we will look to aggressively expand the 6km Dark Star corridor, the location of the recent North Dark Star discovery, which we believe has the potential to host a significant gold system."
Provided that Goldcorp holds not less than 7.5% of the Company, Goldcorp will also have the following rights:
- anti-dilution rights allowing it to maintain its equity ownership interest in Gold Standard; and
- the right to participate in any future equity financings of Gold Standard to acquire up to a 19.9% ownership position in the Company

Listing will be subject to the Company fulfilling all of the listing requirements of the TSXV and the NYSE MKT. The Financing is not being offered in the United States.

CAUTIONARY NOTE FOR U.S. INVESTORS REGARDING RESERVE AND RESOURCE ESTIMATES
All resource estimates reported by the Company were calculated in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. These standards differ significantly from the requirements of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for descriptions of mineral properties in SEC Industry Guide 7 under Regulation S-K of the U. S. Securities Act of 1933. In particular, under U. S. standards, mineral resources may not be classified as a "reserve" unless the determination has been made that mineralization could be economically and legally produced or extracted at the time the reserve determination is made. Accordingly, information in this press release containing descriptions of the Company's mineral properties may not be comparable to similar information made public by US public reporting companies.
On behalf of the Board of Directors of Gold Standard,
Jonathan Awde, President and Director
