Amador Gold Corp Samples 60.68 g/t Gold, 23.93 g/t Silver and 0.47% Copper on RHB Zone at Horwood Property


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 8, 2009) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce that further sampling of a recent high grade gold discovery has produced grab samples of up to 60.68 g/t gold. The samples were taken approximately 1.5 meters to 2.5 meters from samples announced in August which assayed up to 75.0 g/t gold.

Three grab samples collected on the RHB Zone returned values of 60.68 g/t Au, 23.9 g/t Ag and 0.47% Cu, 54.51 g/t Au, 28.1 g/t Ag, 0.53% Cu and 18.82 g/t Au.

"We are extremely pleased to have confirmed high grade gold in the RHB zone as well as with the elevated values of both silver and copper. Our geological team is currently exploring this new zone and compiling data from historic and recent work completed in the area in an attempt to expand on what may be a deep-seated, gold system." comments Company President, Richard Hughes. "There are numerous new and historic zones on the Horwood property which have never been drill tested at depth which is encouraging given the number of deep discoveries recently made in the Timmins camp."

An audio interview with Peter Caldbick, the Company's PGeo for the Horwood Project, was completed following August's gold announcement Horwood property is available via the following link (please note the interview does not include most recent values):

Previous exploration programs had confirmed the presence of both gold and volcanogenic massive sulphide-style (VMS) mineralization at the wholly owned project. Previously reported grab samples from quartz veins within gabbros returned values of 17.30 g/t (grams per tonne) gold, 22.72 g/t gold and 19.68 g/t gold approximately 2.5 km to the west of the RHB zone.

The Horwood Project is located along a splay off of the Destor-Porcupine Fault Zone referred to as the Hardiman Bay Splay, approximately 60 km southwest of recent gold discoveries made by Lakeshore Gold Corp. and West Timmins Mining Inc.

Peter Caldbick, P.Geo., and Charlie Hartley, P.Geo. are the qualified people for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 for the Company's Horwood Project. Project supervision is by Charlie Hartley and the contents of the press release have been reviewed and approved by Peter Caldbick.
