Amador Gold Corp Samples 28.87 g/t Gold and 26.4 g/t Gold 950 Meters Away From Recent High-Grade Discovery

- SAMPLES COLLECTED FROM LABBE ZONE #1 ZONE LOCATED 950 METERS SOUTHEAST OF HIGH GRADE RHB ZONE - 75.0 G/T AND 60.68 G/T RECENTLY SAMPLED FROM RHB ZONE - HISTORIC WORK AND SHALLOW DRILLING DONE BY QUEENSWAY MINES IN 1962 TRACED QUARTZ VEIN ON LABBE #1 ZONE ON STRIKE FOR 76.2 METERS (250 FEET) WITH AN AVERAGE GRADE OF 17.49 G/T (0.51 OZ/TON) GOLD OVER 0.91 METERS (3.0 FEET) - LABBE #1 AND #3 ZONES HAVE NEVER BEEN TESTED AT DEPTH

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 10, 2009) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that two samples collected from the Labbe #1 Zone has returned assays of 28.87 g/t and 26.4 g/t gold. The samples were taken approximately 950 meters southeast of the recently discovered high-grade RHB Zone which assayed up to 75.0 g/t gold.

Historic work done by Queensway Mines in 1962 on the Labbe #1 and Labbe #3 zones was limited to trenching, channel sampling, and shallow drilling. In the Labbe #1 zone a narrow gold bearing quartz vein was traced for a 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 confirmation of high-grade gold in the Labbe #1 zone along with the historic results improves our understanding of the Horwood gold occurrences. We are encouraged by the number of high-grade gold showings occurring within and proximal to the Horwood Peninsula Pluton and are continuing to explore the possibility of a deep seated gold system," comments Company President, Richard Hughes.

The Company has recently completed a map showing both new and historic zones and their locations relative to the Horwood Peninsula Pluton. To view the map please click on the following link or cut and paste the link into your web browser:

The samples taken from the Labbe #1 Zone occur within the Horwood Peninsula Pluton. Two other historic gold occurrences, the Haddington showing and the Horpen Showing, occur near the contact.

The Labbe #3 zone and the new RHB zone occur within the granodiorite. The Labbe #3 vein system has been documented to possess a strike length of 67.67 meters (222 feet) with an average grade of 10.63 g/t (0.31 oz/t) Au although the average width is unknown.

The Horwood Project 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.
