American Energy Production Inc. Announces Letter of Intent and Operating Agreement

MINERAL WELLS, TX--(Marketwire - August 6, 2009) - American Energy Production Inc. (OTCBB: AENP) announced today that it has executed a non-binding Letter of Intent ("LOI") for acquisition of Dorado Gold, LLC and Master Petroleum, LLC, both California limited liability companies (together "Dorado"). Dorado owns 100% of certain placer gold mining claims, land and equipment (the "Joint Properties") 25 miles north of Weaverville, California. Additionally, AENP and Dorado executed a 120-day Operating Agreement to jointly participate in the exploration, evaluation, development and mining of gold and other minerals within the Joint Properties ("Joint Venture"). AENP will bear 100% of all expenses during operations of the Joint Venture and AENP and Dorado will each receive fifty percent (50%) of product or revenues after expenses. AENP will manage the Joint Venture. The acquisition of Dorado by AENP is subject to AENP's sole evaluation of the results after the 120-day Joint Venture period is completed.

Charles Bitters, President of American Energy Production Inc., stated, "We are excited about the Dorado Gold opportunity and the potential to provide AENP the ability to diversify its Energy Operations in this very tough economic climate. AENP believes this working gold mining operation will be a hedge against the economy if potential double-digit inflation occurs in the next year or so as many economists are predicting. These gold mines will also help offset the depressed price of oil and natural gas until these commodities recover in the near future."

This gold mining operation has two major gold claims. Dorado owns forty acres of gold claims, land and minerals in fee and Master Petroleum owns 160 acres of BLM Gold claims. These gold claims are working placer gold mining operations with all heavy earth moving equipment and a processing plant ready to commence as soon as AENP begins operations.

Three weeks ago, Charles Bitters, President of AENP, and Joe Christopher, President of Oil America Group, made a trip to California to survey the gold mining properties and evaluate the gold operations and determined that the gold mines have outstanding potential.
