"The Tionaga property is an important addition to the Company's extensive gold project portfolio and we look forward to advancing it alongside our Horwood Gold project. Surface work on Horwood has been extremely successful with the discovery of a number of high-grade gold zones, a number of which are currently being tested with diamond drilling. We will be using a similar exploration model as we commence Tionaga's initial work program," comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "Over the past year Amador has been strategically expanding its presence in the West Timmins district, focusing on land along the Destor Porcupine Fault Zone, to increase the Company's exposure to precious metals. Given the number of active projects, we anticipate 2010 to be an exciting year for the Company."

Current Drilling:

Drilling recently commenced on the Company's Horwood Gold project, adjacent to the Tionaga property and the Maskooch Gold/VMS project, located in northwestern Ontario. Drilling is scheduled to begin shortly on the Loveland Gold/Copper/Nickel project located approximately 35 northwest of Timmins, Ontario.

The Tionaga property consists of 14 claims (152 units) in Horwood and Silk Townships, Porcupine Mining Division, adjacent to our Horwood Gold property which we are currently drilling. The property is accessible by road and is approximately 95 km southwest of Timmins. The property occurs along what may be a splay off the prolific gold-bearing Destor Porcupine Fault Zone ('DPFZ'). The DPFZ hosts the world famous Timmins gold camp as well as other gold deposits in the Harker-Holloway area of Ontario. 

Consideration for the property consists of $100,000 and 1,000,000 shares, payable over 36 months. There is a 3% net smelter return payable. Up to 1.5% of the NSR may be purchased for $1,000,000 for each 0.5% interest, to a total of $3,000,000 for a 1.5% interest.
