Gulf Resources to Convert Wastewater Treatment Chemical Additive Production into Pharmaceutical and Agricultural Chemical Intermediates Production; Announces Formation of a Subsidiary to Explore Bromine and Crude Salt Resources in Sichuan Province


SHANDONG, China, June 7, 2011 -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GFRE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today announced that the Company will convert its production of wastewater treatment chemical additives to production of pharmaceutical and agricultural  chemical intermediates. The Shouguang Yuxin Chemical Industry Co., Limited (“SYCI”) production line originally started production of wastewater treatment chemical additives in April 2011.

The switch in production output is due to the Company experiencing some technological limitations on extraction purity, which lead to a lower than expected gross margin for wastewater treatment chemical additives.

The conversion of the production equipment from producing wastewater treatment chemical additives to producing pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical additives requires capital expenditures of approximately $100,000 and is expected to be completed in approximately two weeks.

As the Company believes the future prospects for wastewater treatment chemical additives are positive, it will consider resuming production once it has overcome the technical limitations.
 
 
 

 
 
The Company also announced that it intends to register a subsidiary in Daying county, Sichuan province in order to research possible resources for bromine and crude salt in Sichuan province.
