Alto Group Holdings Discovers 4 New Veins With Visible Gold at Nkwanta Property in Ghana

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - Alto Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: ALTO) ("Alto Group" or the "Company") today is pleased to announce the discovery of 4 new veins at the Nkwanta Concession on the Company's Alto-Ashanti Project in Ghana, West Africa.

The veins have been designated Chief, D-10, Ankobra and Scorpion respectively. The Scorpion vein indicates some historic mining as open adits have been located. Of note visible gold has been identified in samples of both the Chief Vein and the D-10 Vein. The newly discovered veins are all located within 500 meters to the northwest of the Golden Arrow Vein and may represent a package of veins associated with a regional NE-SW trending structure.

The Company has submitted over 150 samples that are pending for Au fire assay to the Laboratory and expects additional results shortly.

Currently, Alto staff and geological personnel are undertaking the gold exploration with a crew of 35 people who are sampling, mapping, excavating and trenching the various gold bearing veins.
