Axiom Gold and Silver Corp. Aurora Project Update

TUCSON, ARIZONA--(Marketwire - Aug. 4, 2011) - Axiom Gold and Silver Corp. (OTCQB:AXIO)(BERLIN:0X0) is pleased to provide a new update on its Aurora Project located in Sonora State, Mexico.

Axiom Gold and Silver Corp., through its wholly owned subsidiary Axiom Minerals de Mexico, S.A. de C.V., received analytical results from Acme Analytical Laboratory Ltd. in Vancouver, B.C. for the first two sets of rock samples (70 samples total) from the systematic sampling program ongoing at the Aurora project. The recent sampling continues to confirm the presence of an extensive surface gold anomaly in excess of 4,000m east-west by 500m north-south, with 12 samples (17%) returning values above 0.1g/t Au. These results, combined with the geologic mapping, suggest a geological pattern beginning to emerge of a strong north-northeast controlling structure that is cross-cut by northwest trending structures which also appear to localize higher gold values. Copper and molybdenum are anomalous within the broad zone of alteration, with copper ranging from trace to 590ppm and molybdenum from trace to 490ppm.

Sampling is continuing and an additional 70 samples are awaiting analysis. Detailed mapping is ongoing concurrently with the sampling, with the objective of selecting drill targets for the initial drill program in October of this year.

Barry Quiroz, VP Exploration says, "These recent results confirm the broad areal extent of the gold anomaly. Taken together with the detailed mapping, we expect to be able to select final drill targets within the next two months".

Dr. John Larson, President says, "Given the reports of visible gold from our field team, we intend to start taking large volume samples (10 kg - 20 kg) to give us, what we think will be, a more realistic representation of the gold present in the area. This large volume sampling will begin immediately and will also help identify drill targets".

Details of sample results will be posted on our website,, within the next days.
