Oro Gold Increases Land Position South of Trinidad Property, Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2009) - Oro Gold Resources Ltd. ("Oro Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OGR) reports that it has staked a 579 square kilometre (57,900 Hectare) concession - Tigra Negra, in the state of Nayarit, Mexico. The land position encompasses two historic gold mining areas, Los Cucharas and El Tigre. Government geochemical data indicates broad gold anomalies in stream sediments. The new property is located approximately 20 kilometres to the southeast of the Trinidad project where Oro Gold is currently drilling a new high-grade discovery and defining a gold resource.

The addition of Tigra Negra gives Oro Gold a controlling land position of over 2,350 square kilometres (235,000 hectares) of contiguous concessions to the Trinidad property in Sinaloa and Nayarit, Mexico.

The 100%-owned property was acquired based on government geochemical data showing highly anomalous gold (up to 985 ppb gold) over a large area in stream sediments, and the existence of historic gold workings.

"We have added a large tract of very prospective ground along the same trend that is similar geologically to what we are exploring at Trinidad. This is a strategic move based on our current success in this emerging gold district. Our Tigra Negra property is highly anomalous in gold and under-explored," commented Frank Powell, Oro Gold's Vice-President.
