TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - May 16, 2006) - Amarillo Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGC) ("Amarillo or the Company") is pleased to announce that more assay results have been returned from the Mara Rosa project in the state of Goias, Brazil, (see table below). Amarillo is currently drill testing the North and South Posse Deposit. These deposits contain an historic resource and occur approximately 500m apart. The drilling is looking for extensions to the mineralisation and in filling large gaps in the data above 150m level below the surface. The results reported here are from drilling that targeted down dip structural extensions beneath the South Posse pit. These results show the zone to be continuous and are considered encouraging.
