Company Adding Tech Savvy Mining Experts for Strategic Advantage

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwire - January 26, 2011) - Brazil Gold Corp. (OTCBB: BRZG) ("Brazil Gold"), a precious metals exploration company focused on the Amazon region of Brazil, today announced it has appointed Charles Thorman, Ph.D. as a member of the Company's Advisory Board and engaged him as a Company consultant.

Dr. Thorman brings more than 40 years of broad and varied international geological expertise including extensive experience working in Brazil's mining and mineral industries. His career spans 24 years in the Mineral Resources Group of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), six years of university teaching, three years in the petroleum industry, and 14 years in the minerals industry.

Phillip Jennings, Brazil Gold President, commented, "We are building a team of world-class mining experts and industry executives to acquire, explore and develop mining opportunities in Brazil. Dr. Thorman is an excellent addition to our team, bringing valuable international experience, technological expertise, and credibility to our efforts."

"One component of our growth strategy is to create strategic advantage through the deployment of new, robust mining technologies that will enable Brazil Gold to exploit inefficiencies in the marketplace and to accelerate mineral property exploration and development. Tech savvy experts in this field such as Dr. Thorman and Leigh Freeman -- who joined our Board last month -- add great value technologically as well as operationally."

"I am delighted to welcome a professional of Dr. Thorman's stature to our Advisory Board and as a key member of our technical evaluation team," Mr. Jennings added.
