Published Apr 08th, 2010

NEW YORK and SHANDONG, China -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GFRE - News) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today announced that the construction of a production line for wastewater treatment chemical additives at its Shouguang Yuxing Chemical Industry Co., Limited ("SYCI") location is proceeding according to plan. The Company expects to complete the process and start production in July 2010.

The Company first announced the construction of this new production line in January 2010 and expects that it will contribute approximately $9 to $10 million in revenues in the first year of operation with an estimated gross profit margin over 40% going forward. Total capital expenditure for the new production line is expected to be approximately $8 to $10 million, of which the Company has expended $6 million so far. When completed, the Company expects the new production line to have an annual production capacity of 3,000 metric tons of chemical additives.

"We believe that the demand for wastewater treatment chemicals will grow fast in the next few years together with the Chinese government's increased awareness of environmental protection issues, as reflected by the government's plan to invest RMB 90 billion ($13.2 million) in the next two to three years in domestic wastewater treatment systems. Gulf Resources plans to capture this opportunity and leverage our technology and bromine resources in order to move up the value chain, increase profitability of our chemical products and ultimately maximize shareholder value," said Mr. Xiaobin Liu, CEO of Gulf Resources.
