"The extremely high grades of gold from surface samples along with existing geophysical targets will guide the Company's upcoming drill program, scheduled for early November. Drilling will attempt to identify gold mineralization and controlling structures at depth." comments Company President, Richard Hughes.

Recent stripping and trenching programs have exposed a series of narrow, parallel quartz veins hosted within granodiorite part of the Horwood Peninsula Pluton (HPP) proximal to a granodiorite mafic metavolcanic contact. High-grade showings have been discovered along this contact as well as within the granodiorite.

The quartz veins are described as shallow northwest dipping quartz veins with pyrite and carbonate alteration up to 0.5 meters in width and trending 060 degrees. Previous RHB grab samples returned grades of 75.0 g/t Au, 60.68 g/t Au, 57.1 g/t Au, 48.3 g/t Au and 43.3 g/t Au.

Amador's exploration team is currently compiling geological and geophysical data on the Horwood project to select additional drill targets.

The Horwood Project is located approximately 60 km southwest of recent gold discoveries made by Lakeshore Gold Corp. and West Timmins Mining Inc.
