      Mediterranean Resources Provides Update On Celtik Drilling And
      Preliminary Economic Assessment

Vancouver, BC, March 9, 2010 -- Mediterranean Resources Ltd. (TSX: MNR,
Frankfurt: MHM1) announces that 5 Diamond core drill holes comprising
approximately 1,500 metres have been completed on the Celtik project,
located at the eastern end of a 12 km mineralized trend encompassed by
the Yusufeli Property. 

Celtik Discovery

The 3,000 metre, 8 drill hole campaign was curtailed due to unsafe
drilling conditions along the exploration roads caused by an abnormally
warm winter.  The ALS Chemex laboratory in Vancouver is currently
assaying pulps from the 5 drill hole cores, results of which will be
disseminated when received.    The drill results will be utilized to
determine the resource potential of the project area and assist with
the positioning of additional drill holes in a campaign to be continued
in the summer.

In a previous drilling program, Celtik  returned intercepts with gold
and copper values up to 6.51 g/t Au and 0.9% Cu over 18.4 metres
(HD-04) at a depth of 166.2 to 184.6 metres. 

Preliminary Economic Assessment and Permitting

SRK Consulting Inc., Vancouver office (SRK) retained in December, 2009
to provide a Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) on the Tac and Corak
projects completed a site visit in February. This visit was to satisfy
NI 43-101 requirements and, ascertain suitable locations for operating
facilities, tailings dams and waste rock areas.  The PEA is expected to
be completed and filed by midyear.

SRK completed a NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate on the Tac and
Corak projects earlier this year which established an indicated
resource of 49.5 million tonnes grading 1.32 g/t (Au Eq.) containing
2.09 million ounces of Au Eq. and an inferred resource of 11.0 million
tonnes grading 1.16 g/t (Au Eq.) containing 409,000 ounces of Au Eq.
using April, 2009 metals prices.  The strike length of the Tac project
explored to date and utilized in the resource estimate reported is
approximately 1.0 km long compared to a strike length of approximately
12 kms that describes the entire mineralized area held under license. 

The Corak project strike length is approximately 800 metres along the
12 km mineralized extent.

Golder Associates, Ankara office (Golder) will initiate the Yusufeli
Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) permitting process based on the
findings of the PEA midyear.
