GREENLIGHT RESOURCES INC. – Metallurgical Testing of Silchlor Chlorination Process to commence

October 28, 2010

(PRZCF.OTCBB)  (PH0.FRANKFURT)                    (TSXV.GR)

VANCOUVER, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ – GREENLIGHT RESOURCES INC. (TSXV.GR) announces that pursuant to the terms of the Letter of Intent, dated
April 14, 2010 between the Company, Champlain Mineral Ventures Limited
(“Champlain”) of Bridgetown, Nova Scotia and Silchlor Inc. (“Silchlor”)
of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; the Company has commenced the evaluation
of the patented Silchlor Cyclic Vacuum Chlorination Process.

Dr. Ian Flint of Halifax, Nova Scotia has been retained to manage the
assembly of a small scale reactor as well as supervise its testing and
evaluation. Assayed samples from the recent Brazil Lake drilling
program completed at the end of September, 2010 will be used in order
to ascertain the commerciality of the Silchlor process on the Brazil
Lake Spodumene.

Recently having completed ten year tenure as a professor in the Faculty
of Engineering, Dalhousie University, Dr. Flint achieved his PhD in
Mining and Mineral Processing Engineering from the University of
British Columbia
in 2001. Previously he acquired a Master in Arts and
Science, Metallurgical Engineering from the University of Toronto in
1989. His academic work has focused on independent industrial process
design including graphite, lithium physical and chemical separations,
feldspars, oil removal, cosmetics, mica, diamonds, river energy and
tidal energy. Dr. Flint has previously been employed by Cominco
Engineering Services Ltd (“CESL”) from 1989 to 1993 and then from 1997
to 1999. While employed by CESL; he worked on the design and
commercialization of floatation column solutions for the mining
industry.

The objectives of the Company’s bench testing of the Silchlor Cyclic
Vacuum Process include:

  • Demonstrate similar or lower cost profiles as the solar brine process
    used to extract Lithium from salt pans in South America and Nevada.
  • Minimize waste product.
  • Reduction in impurities in the initial Lithium Chloride product which
    could allow for less complicated procedures to produce high purity
    products with increased values.
  • Recovery of additional  marketable products in the Spodumene, in
    particular Rubidium as well as aluminum chloride and silica
    tetrachloride.

Brazil Lake Project

Greenlight has recently completed in September 2010 its phase one
drilling program on the Brazil Lake property comprising 28 cored holes
totalling 2,652 meters.  The program targeted the two known
spodumene-bearing pegamatite dikes on the property, the North and South
dikes.  Pegmatite intersections containing spodumene mineralization of
up to 11 meters over true width have been encountered in the current
drilling program.  Spodumene mineralization accounts for the lithium
content within the pegmatites.

Greenlight’s recently completed field exploration programs within the
original claim blocks, have identified new primary target areas, which
are in addition to the known North and South pegmatite dikes. Three new
targets, identified by pegmatite boulder float trains, the Deerfield,
Army Road and Church Road will be further explored in the fall. 
Several other areas containing pegmatite float have been identified and
will be followed up in later programs.

The company announced Oct 26(th) 2010 that it will be starting a new field exploration program in
November, on the recently acquired claim blocks that have yet been
explored, an area approximately 7 km by 2 km. The objective of this
program is to duplicate the kind of success achieved on the original
claim blocks.

On June 17, 2010, the Company filed a NI 43-101 compliant report on the
Brazil Lake property.  Approximately 30 holes were drilled by the
property’s previous private owners.  Results indicated that cores
returned Li(2)O grades of economic interest.  More specifically, hole BZ-02-15
returned a weighted average Li(2)O grade of 1.47% over a true width of 12.53 meters, beginning at a down
hole depth of 30.9 m, and BZ-93-4 returned a weighted average grade of
1.27% Li(2)O over 20.9 meters true width, beginning at a down hole depth of 47.1
meters. These intercepts and others contain sub-interval Li(2)O grades exceeding 2.5%.

Other Potential Rare Metals and Industrial Minerals

Prior work on the Brazil Lake pegmatites has also been directed toward
definition of valuable mineral or metal components additional to
lithium, and preliminary results show that potential exists for
creation of industrial mineral products such feldspar, quartz and
mica.  The company is also investigating potential for recovery of
rubidium, tantalum and tin from the pegmatites.  On March 2(nd), the Company announced assay results from drill holes which addressed
other rare metals contained within the Brazil Lake pegmatites.  These
included rubidium (“Rb”), beryllium (“Be”) and tantalum (“Ta”). 
Examples of the grades included Hole #02-15 in the lithium pegmatites
which returned values up to 1,398 parts per million (“ppm”) Rb over
15.3 meters including 2,625 ppm Rb over 4.2 meters.  Hole #02-24 in the
lithium pegmatites returned Be values of up to 200 ppm  over 35.8
meters, including 304 ppm Be over 14.9 meters.  Also, hole #93-2 in the
lithium pegmatites returned Ta values of up to 102 ppm over 24 meters,
including 541 ppm Ta over 1.0 meter. (One parts per million is equal to
one gram per tonne)

About GreenLight Resources Inc.:

GreenLight Resources Inc. is a Canadian exploration company focused on
the discovery and development of Lithium and rare metal deposits. The
Company is currently focused on the 8,520 acre Brazil Lake property is
located approximately 30 kilometres north of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, and 12 kilometres west of the Avalon Rare Metals (AVL) East Kemptville
Project. Drilling to date has successfully revealed two Lithium bearing
pegmatite dikes.  In addition to Lithium, the dikes host several other
rare metals such as tantalum, niobium, beryllium, tungsten tin and
rubidium. Metallurgical bench testing to date has also revealed other
potential economic targets, including cosmetic grade mica, silica
chloride, aluminum chloride and rubidium enriched potassium feldspar.

Greenlight also recently announced a letter of intent to earn up to a
100% undivided interest in the 3,440 acre Porcupine-Upper Miramichi
Rare Earth Property in New Brunswick. The primary target is the various
rare earth elements (REE’s) which have anomalous values in soil samples
on the property including  Samarium (Sm) with grades of up to 218 ppm
(g/t) and Dysprosium (Dy) with grades of up to 98.6 ppm (g/t),
Neodymium  (Nd) with grades of up to 1190 ppm (g/t), Ytterbium  (Yb)
with grades of up to 31.3 ppm (g/t) and  Yttrium (Y) with grades of up
to 472 ppm (g/t).  Anomalous soil assays for HREE’s found on the
property include Terbium (Tb) with grades up to 20.3 ppm (g/t) and
Ytterbium (Yb) with grades up to 31.3 ppm (g/t) while reported light
rare earth metals include Cerium (Ce) with grades up to 459 ppm (g/t)
and Lanthanum (La) with grades up to 1,300 ppm (g/t).
