Gulf Resources Website Issues

SHOUGUANG, China, March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company" or "GURE"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today announced the explaining letter for its website issues.

In response to requests from shareholders, GURE is in the process of completely updating and rebuilding its website.

The Company is aware that it has not been diligent in keeping its website up to date on all subjects. The new and improved website will update all of the information needed by investors and will also include new communication from the management as well as full information on new projects, including the acquisition of SCRC and the drilling for natural gas in Sichuan province.

Unfortunately as we have begun the process of rebuilding our website, we have encountered a technical problem. The software we originally used, Joomla 1.0 is no longer supported by our website provider. To utilize the current PHP version 5.6, we need to upgrade to Joomla 3.4.

We are working as hard as we can to get the new software installed and provide investors with all the information they want.

We recognize that this is an unfortunate time for this to occur. We will be reporting our 2015 results soon and will be holding a conference call. It would be an inconvenience for our investors to attend the webcasting if we are not able to get the new software installed. But there would still be a link available for investors to attend our webcasting even though not a direct link from the company website.

We apologize to our investors for this issue. We want our investors to know that we are dedicated to providing them with complete, up-to-date information on our website and that we will work diligently to get the new website operational and then to keep it complete and current.

We appreciate your patience and promise to do a better job of investor communications in the future.
