Re:       News Release - Thursday, July 16, 2009
Title:     Eldorado Disposes Of Non-Core Asset

Eldorado Gold Corporation ("Eldorado" or "Company") is pleased to announce the closing of its disposal to Solex Resources Corp. ("Solex") of its interest in the Macusani East Uranium project, the sole asset of Minera Frontera Pacifico S.A. ("MFP"), which was obtained through its acquisition of Frontier Pacific Mining Corporation ("Frontier") in 2008. Pursuant to the disposition, Eldorado received 11,820,487 common shares (the "Solex Shares") of Solex. The shares represent approximately 17.0% of the issued and outstanding Solex Shares (as at June 1, 2009). Following completion of the transaction, Eldorado holds directly 13,820,487 Solex Shares representing 19.9% of the issued and outstanding Solex Shares (as at June 1, 2009).

Under the terms of the sale agreement, Solex acquired 27,555,244 common shares of MFP (the "MFP Shares") and Eldorado received 11,820,487 Solex Shares (by way of a private placement, at a deemed issue price of $0.14), a promissory note in the amount of $2,000,000 payable on terms (secured by a mortgage on the project), and a uranium royalty on the project.

Eldorado acquired the Solex Shares in connection with the disposition of its interest in a non-material exploration asset.

Eldorado is a gold producing, exploration and development company actively growing businesses in Brazil China, Greece, and Turkey and surrounding regions. We are one of the lowest cost pure gold producers. With our international expertise in mining, finance and project development, together with highly skilled and dedicated staff, we believe that Eldorado is well positioned to grow in value as we create and pursue new opportunities.
