TORONTO, March 21 /CNW/ - Further to the press release on October 18, 2010 regarding the updates on the Sawayaerdun Gold Project (the "Project"), GobiMin Inc. ("GobiMin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has just received a NI 43-101 compliant Mineral Resource Estimate from Wardrop a Tetra Tech Company ("Wardrop") for the gold resources contained in the Zone IV within the Project.  The estimate was prepared with an effective date of October 1, 2010.

The Project is owned by Xinjiang Tongyuan Minerals Ltd. in which GobiMin holds an indirect equity interest of 70% and is located in the southern Tian Shan Mountains about 200 kilometers northwest of the city of Kashi. Topography is moderate to steep with elevations between 3,100 and 4,000 meters above sea level.

RESOURCE ESTIMATE

The current NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate of the Zone IV of the Project is based upon all current and historical assay data.  At a lower grade threshold of 0.5 grams/tonne gold, the Zone IV is estimated to contain Indicated resources of about 34 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.3 grams/tonne gold and Inferred resources of about 13.5 million tonnes with an average grade of approximately 1.0 grams/tonne gold.

Mr. Greg Mosher, P.Geo. a Senior Geologist with Wardrop is the Qualified Person for this release as defined under NI 43-101 and has reviewed and approved this press release.  A copy of the Technical Report will be available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) and the website of the Company (www.gobimin.com) within 45 days of this press release.

DRILLING

The Company drilled 33 holes (6,700 aggregate meters) in the Zone IV, mostly in the northeastern portion of the Zone IV which, on the basis of earlier drilling, is where the Zone is widest. Holes were drilled to the southeast, perpendicular to strike and generally at 60-meter intervals along the strike of the Zone IV and generally two or three holes were drilled on each section so as to intersect the Zone IV at progressively greater depths down-dip. The dip of the holes ranged from 60º to 90º; most were drilled at dips between 75º and 85º. Holes were surveyed at 50-meter intervals as well as at the pierce points of the Zone. The holes penetrated the Zone IV at a range of oblique angles so that the intercept thickness is in all cases greater than the true thickness. However, the relatively large number of drill holes intercepts through the Zone IV permits a good understanding of its morphology and the relationship between true and apparent thickness can be clearly demonstrated.

SAMPLING

A total of 2,673 samples were collected from the core drilled in 2010. As the gold mineralization is contained within a fault Zone, much of the core is fractured. However, recovery was high and Wardrop considers it improbable that any significant sample bias would have been introduced by loss of fine-grained material or other circumstance introduced by the fractured nature of the core. The resultant assays are considered representative of the mineralization that was tested.

Wardrop considers the sampling, sample preparation, security and analytical procedures to be adequate for the purpose of the resource estimate.
