Gold American Mining Corp. - Guadalupe Property Update

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - July 14, 2010) -  Gold American Mining Corp. (OTCBB: SILA) ("Gold American" and/or "the Company") is pleased to provide an update on the ongoing work program at the Company's Guadalupe Property in Zacatecas State, Mexico

As previously announced, the ongoing field program at the Guadalupe Property was initially planned to consist of 10.6 line miles (17 line kms) of magnetic and induced polarization surveys, as well as further detailed sampling and mapping of the entire Guadalupe area and workings. Upon review of preliminary results of the magnetic survey, a number of geophysical anomalies have been identified and therefore Gold American has decided to increase the geophysics program to cover 13.7 line miles (22 line kilometers). We expect to have additional information on the program by the end of July.

In addition, the Company recently acquired additional historical geological data for the Guadalupe property and surrounding area. This data indicates that additional historical workings exist within the property that have not been visited or sampled by Gold American to date. Some highlights of the historical results include:

  • 920 g/t Ag, 6.0% Pb and 3.32% Zn over 0.5m
  • 680 g/t Ag and 7.3% Zn over 1.2m
  • 500 g/t Ag, 3.1% Pb and 3.6% Zn over 0.6m
  • 380 g/t Ag, 20% Pb and 7.0% Zn over 1.4m

"During this new phase of exploration, we have been able to expand significantly our knowledge of the property and we are very excited about the progress. We still need to further review and analyze the data obtained to incorporate it into our geological model of the property and design the best drilling program to test it," said Johannes Petersen, President of Gold American. "The historical data acquired is consistent with the high-grade silver results found during our initial work program," added Mr. Petersen.

THE GUADALUPE PROPERTY
The Guadalupe property contains two historically significant mines and is located in one of Mexico's oldest mining districts, roughly 5 miles north of the Fresnillo (Proaño) Mine, the world's richest underground silver mine, operated by Fresnillo plc. Roughly 6.8 miles to the southwest of Silver America's Guadalupe Property is the Juanicipio Joint Venture (JV) between MAG Silver Corp. (MAG) and Fresnillo plc, which is known as one of the world's highest grade undeveloped silver resources.

The Property contains greater than 20 known workings as well as two historic mines - Santa Rita and San Antonio. Historic records containing references to the Santa Rita and San Antonio mines suggest that both mines were important and reached their height of production between 1910 and 1920 but were last in production in the 1980's. The property is completely surrounded by land controlled by Peñoles (either through Fresnillo or other subsidiaries and partners).
