ATW Gold Corp.: Fourth Gold Pour From Burnakura Scheduled for April 16th

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 8, 2009) - ATW Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ATW) ("ATW" or "the Company"), is pleased to report that three gold pours have been completed since beginning operations at Burnakura in early March. These three pours have produced over 800 ounces gold and 80 ounces silver. A fourth pour is scheduled for April 16th.

The first pours represent recovery from initial production during the wet commissioning phase and confirm the Company is on track and on target to reach the first full production target of 36,000 ounces annually in 80 to 90 days. Gold pours from Burnakura are planned weekly or biweekly, as mining and processing are steadily increased.

Brent Butler, President and CEO, commented, "As planned, each successive gold pour returns increased gold production, confirming our mining plan and recovery process. We are within reach of our first full production target and look forward to reporting additional results monthly until the first production target is reached and quarterly thereafter."
