Amador Gold Corp. Announces Drill Plans on High Grade Gold Target in West Timmins Gold District

- 1991 DRILLING BY FALCONBRIDGE INTERSECTED 82.2 G/T GOLD OVER 1.5 METERS INCLUDING 306.0 G/T OVER 0.4 METERS APPROXIMATELY 125 METERS VERTICALLY BELOW SURFACE

- PROJECT LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 5 KM NORTH OF LAKE SHORE GOLD'S WEST TIMMINS PROJECT

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2009) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased to provide an update on its drill plans for its Kamiskotia Gold property. The property lies approximately 5km north of Lake Shore Gold's West Timmins Project. This area has been host to a number of base metal deposits including the Kam-Kotia, Jameland, Canadian Jamieson, and the Genex Mines. Historic exploration in the area has primarily focused on the base metal potential with limited gold exploration.

In 1991, Falconbridge Exploration, while testing the base metal potential in the area, drilled a series of north-south trending conductors. The first drill hole intersected 82.2 g/t Au over 1.5 meters, including 306.0 g/t Au over 0.4 meters in what was described as a "grey zone" within mafic volcanics. These grey zones are important gold mineralization host rocks at the Hoyle Pond Mine approximately 20 kilometers northeast of Timmins.

Follow-up drilling by Moneta Porcupine Mines in 1993 drilled along strike and up dip of the gold intercept intersected the favorable horizon. Recent compilation work done by the Company suggests en echelon gold-bearing quartz carbonate veins hosted within this grey zone may cross cut stratigraphy.

Structural and compilation work is underway to obtain a better understanding of the area and determine the continuity of the gold values obtained in the 1991 drill program. The Company's drill program will test for continuity beneath and down plunge of the original gold zone.
