Andes Gold Announces a Securities Awareness Campaign

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 6, 2010) - Andes Gold Corporation (PINKSHEETS: AGCZ) announced its plan to launch a Securities Awareness Campaign beginning January 6, 2010 to January 6, 2011.

According to the company, a Securities Awareness Campaign is not unlike an advertising campaign, it is a series of advertisements and or sponsored messages that share a single idea and theme to create awareness of the company's current and future objectives and potential with the intent to attract and interest investors and or stakeholders.

A securities awareness campaign may include the hiring of investor relations personnel, launching a new web based investor relations platform, sending emails to opt-in subscribers of newsletters and or information website, placing ads on websites, sponsoring research reports, interacting on message boards and mailing press kits and information. These services can be paid and or hired by the company with the issuance of restricted shares and or cash. It is also possible that existing shareholders pay individuals and or companies to perform these services and these shareholders could pay with the transfer of shares and or cash. In either case, the company intends to provide whenever possible with a disclosure of said payment and or hiring.

Shareholders and or potential shareholders should be aware that a securities awareness campaign does not guarantee that a market will develop in the company's securities and that in the event an active market does develop, the price of the stock may not reflect the fundamental value of the company. It should be further noted that the shares are tightly held by few shareholders and this may have the result of a sudden increase in the price of the security and the same is true if the security is sold, it may result in a sudden drop in the price of the stock.

The company does not support in anyway the use of "spamming" and request that shareholders immediately contact the company in the event they receive and or are aware of such activity.
