American Sierra Gold Corp. Signs LOI to Acquire Copper-Gold-Silver Project

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - American Sierra Gold Corp. (OTCBB: AMNP), an independent gold exploration company headquartered in Reno, Nevada, is pleased to announce that it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire a 100% interest in the Carol Project located in southern Sonora State, Mexico.

The Carol Project

The Carol property is comprised of six mineral concessions that cover 1,868 acres. It is located approximately 2 miles north of Frontera Copper Corp.'s Piedras Verdes copper porphyry mine, which is currently producing and has a reported proven and probable reserve of 191 million tonnes grading 0.36% copper.

The property is host to three distinct mineralized targets: the bulk tonnage-style Balde copper-zinc-gold-silver skarns, the Escondida shear zone and high-grade epithermal vein-hosted silver and gold.

The Balde Norte skarn is exposed over an area at least 700m long by 180m across, whereas the larger Balde Sur skarn target is exposed over an area that measures 1,100m by 400m. Small gambusino-style workings occur at the northern end of the Balde Sur target where sampling returned 8 metres grading 1.62% copper, 4.18% zinc and 10.0 g/t silver.

In the centre of the property is the La Escondida zone where sampling returned 8 metres averaging 1.10 g/t Au, 21.23 g/t Ag as well as 2.25% Cu. This zone is open both along strike and to depth. In 2008, a new gold zone discovered at Carol uncovered 20 metres averaging 0.66 g/t gold that is open in all directions. The highest gold assay received was 2.24 g/t.

"The Carol project is a valuable addition to our project portfolio. It has an exciting potential to host a bulk tonnage copper-gold-silver deposit and the property's infrastructure is excellent. A trenching program carried out in 2008 showed that the property contains multiple targets with average grades greater than 1% copper, 1% zinc, 6 g/t silver and 0.3 g/t gold," commented Wayne Gruden, CEO of American Sierra.

"Several of the target zones remain open in at least one direction. This is significant in that there is the potential, with additional exploratory work, to show mineralization over much wider widths. We will initiate the due diligence process as soon as possible and expect to sign a final agreement in the near future," added Mr. Gruden.

Under the terms of the Letter of Intent, to earn a 100% interest American Sierra will be required to pay the vendor US$50,000, spend US$600,000 on exploration expenditures over a three year period and issue 500,000 shares during the same period.

Correction to Press Release Dated September 30, 2009 on Urique Project

Our news release of September 30, 2009 reported one sampling result on the Urique South Zone that was incorrect. Please note that the correct local bonanza grade gold found on this zone was 10.6 g/t (grams per ton) gold.
