VG Gold Welcomes New Davidson-Tisdale Partner San Gold

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2009) - VG Gold Corp., (TSX:VG), (FRANKFURT:VN3), is pleased that San Gold Corporation has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire Laurion Minerals' 31.5% interest in the Davidson-Tisdale project located in Timmins, Ontario, as announced on October 8, 2009. VG Gold owns 68.5% of Davidson-Tisdale, one of four key properties that VG Gold holds in the Timmins Camp.

"VG Gold welcomes the opportunity to have San Gold as a partner. The strategic investment in VG Gold by Rob McEwen's Lexam Explorations and now San Gold's purchase of the Laurion Minerals' Davidson-Tisdale interest are statements of VG's strong asset base and exploration potential in one of the world's premier gold mining camps," stated Tom Meredith, President & CEO of VG Gold.

DAVIDSON-TISDALE PROPERTY

The Davidson-Tisdale property is a high-grade gold deposit located in the heart of the Timmins Gold Camp, where 70 million ounces of gold have been produced to date. The property is on trend between several producing and former producing gold mines. Previous drilling indicates that the Davidson-Tisdale deposit has potential for additional high grade gold mineralization.

The table below presents previously announced VG Gold drill results that intersected high-grade mineralization in the central part of the resource. These results indicate significant resource potential at Davidson-Tisdale, which remains open to depth. Neighbouring Timmins mines have been developed to depths exceeding 6000 feet.
