Saga Creek Shares Re-registered Back into Alhambra's Name

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 22, 2009) - Alhambra Resources Ltd. ("Alhambra" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ALH)(FRANKFURT:A4Y) announces that it has just received official ministerial approval from the Republic of Kazakhstan notifying the Corporation that the shares of Saga Creek were successfully re-registered back into Alhambra's name effective September 15, 2009. As a result, Alhambra has regained ownership and full control of Saga Creek.

"We are happy and excited that we have successfully recovered our Kazakhstan operating subsidiary of Saga Creek," stated John J. Komarnicki, Chairman and CEO of Alhambra. "We are ecstatic that the rule of law in Kazakhstan ultimately prevailed. Now that Alhambra has regained ownership and control of Saga Creek, the Corporation will resume its strategy of accelerating exploration and production development of the Uzboy Project. This includes the Uzboy gold deposit, Alhambra's gold pilot production facility and our other advanced exploration areas including Dombraly, Shirotnaia, Mamay and Kirtoge."

The Corporation is currently reviewing both the operational and financial status of Saga Creek. Once this process has been completed, Alhambra will update its exploration and development plans, and will communicate those plans to its investors.
