VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 4, 2009) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased to it announce it has commenced diamond drilling on its wholly owned Horwood Property in the West Timmins gold district. The property is located along a splay off the Destor-Porcupine Fault, the Hardiman Bay Fault, approximately 60 km southwest of recent gold discoveries made by Lakeshore Gold Corp. and West Timmins Mining Inc.

The estimated 1400 meter drill program will test numerous high-grade gold targets including:

  • The RHB zone: Recently returned assays as high as 183.5 g/t gold on grab samples taken from outcrop. Drilling on the RHB zone will advance pending results from a recent IP (induced polarization) geophysical survey.

  • The Labbe #1 Zone: Has never been drilled to depth although historic shallow drilling by Queensway Mines Ltd. Traced a gold bearing quartz vein for strike length of 76.2 meters (250 feet) with an average grade of 17.49 g/t (0.51 oz/t) Au over 0.91 meters (3.0 feet.) No subsequent deep drilling has occurred on this vein system.

  • The Bend Zone: 2008 drilling done by the Company intersected 12.35 g/t gold over 2.4 meters. This intersection is near the bottom of the deepest hole in the program and to date, no follow-up drilling has been done.

  • Drilling to test other induced polarization (IP) targets
