Brazil Gold Reports on Exploration at Madeirinha

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2010) -  Brazil Gold Corp. (OTCBB: BRZG) ("Brazil Gold" or the "Company") is pleased to report the initial results of preliminary exploration activities on the Madeirinha property, part of the extensive 2.1 million acre mineral claim holdings in the Amazon basin region of Brazil, currently under agreement between the Company and Amazonia Capital e Partipacoes Ltda. ("Amazonia").

The Madeirinha mineral tenures total four concessions encompassing 95,300 acres in Mato Grosso state in the southwestern Amazon region of Brazil. The claims are approximately 240 kilometers southwest of the city of Apui, site of the 2008 Dorado do Juma gold discovery. Primary exploration targets at Madeirinha are gold and copper mineralization associated with a sheared and deformed Archaean to Proterozoic age greenstone belt sequence comprised of metamorphosed volcanic/sedimentary rock units intruded by slightly younger post-tectonic bodies. The mineral tenures are all located within a large area mapped as the Paleoproterozoic Sao Romao Intrusive Suite, described as consisting mainly of metagranodiorite, metamonzogranite and metasyenogranite.

In 2008 Amazonia personnel conducted a test geochemical survey on an abandoned garimpeiro (hand-dug) site within the Madeirinha lands, collecting samples on a 100 meter by 100 meter grid from soil and saprolite at a one meter depth. Results of this survey indicate elevated gold and chromate samples in the data, as well as iron, nickel, chromium, and vanadium multi-line anomalies. These data will be verified by the upcoming 2010 exploration program. Garimpeiro tin mining activity is also known in the northern part of the project area.

Brazil Gold VP & Director Phillip Jennings commented, "We are extremely encouraged by the results of the Madeirinha survey -- the data definitely indicates that we are on the right path. Our upcoming accelerated exploration program will enable us to confirm the survey's findings so that we can capitalize on the high price of gold in today's market."

All samples from Madeirinha were treated as rocks being crushed/pulverized to -150 mesh. The project analytical work was conducted by SGS Geosol Laboratorios Ltda, located in Vespasiano, Brazil. The areas sampled by Amazonia to date at Madheirina represent a small portion (cut lines and surface samples) of the total land holdings in this project area. Other areas of garimpeiro activity are known to exist on adjoining mineral tenures to those sampled to date. These areas will be identified and evaluated by additional gridding and soil, saprolite and rock sampling.
