Dutch Gold Resources Inc. Discusses Shareholder Value Proposition

New Assets and Expanded Management Team Among Actions in Process

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - February 4, 2010) -  Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: DGRI) (the "Company") (http://dutchgold.com), today provided guidance regarding its plans and strategies for maximizing shareholder value, and increasing its position in the marketplace.

We have previously announced our Four Step plan for moving from a junior miner, into the intermediate marketplace. This plan provided for a combination of growth through acquisition, and organic growth though leveraging our geological, engineering and technical skills to increase the potential of the properties under management. Following is a summary of the Company's achievements over the last six month and the near term steps underway for the next six months:

1 -- We completed the acquisition of Aultra Gold, Inc.'s assets and integrated its management and technical skills with our staff's investment banking and merger/acquisition experience;

2 -- We have preserved the public company status of AGDI, which gives us an additional platform to potentially expand our operations and assets, either through organic growth, or via acquisition. We own 67% of AGDI's shares and will consolidate their financial results with ours pursuant to current accounting regulation;

3 -- We have doubled the number of mining properties from the Gold Bug and Benton mines in Oregon, to now include Basin Gulch in Montana, and Jungo in Nevada. As a result the size of our mineralization high-grade gold assets has grown from 330,000 ounces to 3 million ounces;

4 -- We have plans underway to enhance the valuation of our existing properties with additional drilling and development work. Additionally, we expect to complete a revised mining plan for the Benton site;

5 –- We continue to evaluate other complementary properties to be added into our portfolio. However, there can be no assurance that we will enter into an agreement to acquire either of these sites or that if an agreement is reached that it will be on terms favorable to the Company.

This press release uses the terms "Measured resources," "Indicated resources" and "Inferred resources," which are calculated in accordance with the Canadian National Instrument 43-101 and the Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy Classification system. Mineral Resources are not Mineral Reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. We advise investors that while those terms are recognized and required by Canadian regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission does not recognize them. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that any part or all of mineral deposits in these categories will ever be converted into reserves. In addition, "Inferred resources" have a great amount of uncertainty as to their existence, and great uncertainty as to their economic and legal feasibility. It cannot be assumed that all or any part of an Inferred Mineral Resource will ever be upgraded to a higher category. Under Canadian rules, estimates of Inferred Mineral Resources may not form the basis of feasibility or pre-feasibility studies, except in rare cases. U.S. investors are cautioned not to assume that part or all of an inferred resource exists, or is economically or legally minable.
