Amador Starts Drilling New Gold Zones

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - December 4, 2007) - Amador Gold Corp (TSX-V: AGX) ("Amador") is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling on the Horwood Gold Property, approximately 75 kilometers southwest of Timmins, Ontario.

Drilling will test the 3 new gold zones (Gabbro, Bend and Quartz Blowout gold zones) that were first discovered late last year and earlier this year by trenching. Gold occurs as higher grade and lower grade disseminated mineralization over large areas that have been trenched. The 2 largest gold bearing trenched areas range in size from 30 to over 60 metres in width. The strike length is unknown as the zones trend into swamp and thick overburden. The 2 largest discoveries appear to be on strike with one another and are about 500 metres apart.

The style of gold mineralization is similar to deposits in the Timmins gold mining camp where over 60 million ounces of gold have been produced. Gold is associated with enechelon stacked quartz carbonate veins within gossanous, carbonatized and pyritiferous alteration zones in mafic flows (locally pillowed) and mafic intrusives. Results to date indicate that gold mineralization is not restricted to the enechelon stacked quartz vein systems but occurs ubiquitously throughout the altered wallrock as well. All zones are open in all directions.

Approximately 175 channel samples were collected from the newly discovered Gabbro zone during the summer field season with 98 samples grading greater than 1.0 g/t gold of which 39 samples graded greater than 3.0 g/t gold. Highlights from some of the separate channel samples of this zone included 13.03 g/t gold over 0.5m, 5.62 g/t over 4.0m, 2.09 g/t over 2.5m, 2.83 g/t over 5.0m, 2.79 g/t over 7.5m, 7.81 g/t over 1.5m, and 2.62 g/t over 5.5m.

The Bend Zone, located 500 metres west of the Gabbro zone, was exposed by trenching for over 950 square metres. Highlights of the sampling from this zone included 28.1 g/t gold over 0.5 metres, 4.29 g/t over 3 metres, 2.35 g/t gold over 2 metres and 5.94 g/t gold over 2 metres. A total of 245 channel samples were taken with 36 of the samples grading greater than 1.0 g/t Au and 17 samples grading greater than 2.0 g/t gold. The Bend and the Quartz Blowout zone were first discovered in late 2006, and initial grab sample results were announced in March, 2007.

The Quartz Blowout zone encompasses an area of 500 square meters where mineralization is localized around a large bull quartz vein. Initial grab samples returned values over 1.0 g/t gold and 6 samples over 2.0 g/t gold, including one grab sample grading 11.64 g/t gold, out of a total of 26 samples.

Geophysical surveys consisting of magnetic and induced polarization (IP) surveys have been completed over the stripped areas and along strike as well. Results from the summer and fall seasons indicate that the mineralization is associated with IP anomalies that continue along strike off the stripped areas.
