AQUAGOLD International Upgraded in OTC Market Tiers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - September 22, 2009) - AQUAGOLD International (PINKSHEETS: AQUI), a global distributor of premier Canadian spring water products, announces their move from "Pink Sheets Limited Information" to "Pink Sheets Current Information" in OTC electronic markets.

"We have been working diligently to ensure that our company is legally compliant with Pink Sheets disclosure requirements. This is a significant turning point for the company," said Domingo Silvas III, Chief Executive Officer of AQUAGOLD. Companies that are considered "Pink Sheets Current Information" in OTC electronic markets include reporting companies that submit filings to regulators with powers of review and that make the filings publicly available or non-reporting companies that make current information publicly available on the Pink Sheets News Service pursuant to Pink OTC Markets Guidelines for Providing Adequate Current Information ( The Current Information category is based on the level of disclosure and is not a designation of quality or investment risk.

Mr. Silvas, originally hired as a consultant and recently made CEO, has spent the last year securing well-established and experienced professionals who now comprise the new management team of AQUAGOLD. Joseph Rosamilia, a veteran of the banking and finance industry and the company's Executive Vice President of Corporate Development, has greatly contributed to the company's financial restructuring and the overall improvement of AQUAGOLD'S market status.

"We are building a company that not only operates as a first-class organization, but one that also provides a prestigious product," Mr. Silvas emphasized. With recent success in the Chinese market, including the television show "AQUAGOLD Superface," which has a weekly viewership of thirty million and the support of twelve prominent Chinese organizations, significant sales contracts have been acquired and the company is experiencing an elevation in both brand awareness and market tier status.

"The quality standards to which we hold ourselves encompass all facets of AQUAGOLD," Mr. Silvas commented. "Our upgraded status in the market is reflective of the hard work and dedication of the entire company."
