Published Dec 14th, 2009

NEW YORK and SHANDONG, China, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq: GFRE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today provided an update on the integration of manufacturing assets that the Company acquired in September 2009. The Company started formal production using the assets on December 14, 2009.

Gulf Resources completed the transfer of ownership of bromine and crude salt manufacturing assets on September 30, 2009. With support from the sellers of the assets and the local government, the Company signed a land lease agreement with local authorities and obtained the required land use rights for the property. The Company has recently finished the maintenance and modification of the assets. After having completed successful trial production, the company expects the newly acquired assets will result in a daily bromine and crude salt production of 10 and 370 metric tons, respectively.

"We were able to start timely production using the newly acquired assets because of the support of the local government, assistance from the sellers of the assets, and the efforts of the management team," said Mr. Xiaobin Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Resources. "With bromine prices higher compared with September levels, the additional production capacity will keep us well positioned for achieving our financial goals for the current fiscal year. Looking ahead at 2010, we expect China's strong economy and the government's continued efforts to regulate small, unlicensed bromine producers to help Gulf Resources meet its goal of expanding production capacity. This should allow for continued growth in our top and bottom lines."
