Amador Gold to Commence Trenching and Stripping Program on Multiple Vein Sets Discovered on Strike With Recent High-Grade Gold Samples

- RECENT HIGH-GRADE SAMPLES INCLUDE 75.0 G/T, 57.1 G/T, 48.3 G/T, AND 43.3 G/T GOLD - VEINS APPEAR TO BE OCCURING IN PROXIMITY TO MAJOR FOLDS IDENTIFIED USING VTEM DATA

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2009) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased to announce trenching and stripping has been planned on new high-grade gold vein targets recently discovered on the Horwood Property, situated approximately 85 km southwest of Timmins, Ontario.

These new targets are approximately 100 meters away from and on strike with a multiple vein set which was recently sampled returning assays as high as 75.0 g/T gold. Other samples taken from the same set include: 57.1 g/T, 48.3 g/T and 43.3 g/T gold.

Stripping and trenching will be followed by a program of systematic channel sampling. The entire property has been flown with the airborne VTEM system and it appears that a number of the high-grade samples occur in close proximity to structural folds.

"Being able to review the VTEM data beforehand and pinpoint target areas allows us a major advantage not available to previous operators, as a large part of the property is covered by overburden. Discovering high-grade gold in these areas is extremely encouraging as the apparent structural folds may allow for the concentration of gold and other mineral-bearing fluids." comments Company President, Richard Hughes.

The Company's latest press release includes a link to an audio interview with Project Geologist, Peter Caldbick, discussing the significance of the recent high-grade samples as well as the how the Horwood geology fits in to the various geological trends within the Timmins camp.

Other gold zones identified on the Horwood property include the Bend Zone and the Gabbro Zone approximately 2 kilometers southwest of the recent high grade gold samples. Previous drilling on the Bend Zone returned 12.34 g/t Au over 2.40 meters (reported previously in Feb 2008 press release). These and other areas are currently being reviewed for further exploration initiatives and possible follow up drilling.

The Horwood Project is located approximately 60 km southwest of recent gold discoveries made by Lakeshore Gold Corp. and West Timmins Mining Inc.

Peter Caldbick, P.Geo., and Charles Hartley, P.Geo. are the qualified people for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 for the Company's Horwood Project. Project supervision is by Charles Hartley and the contents of the press release have been reviewed and approved by Peter Caldbick.
