Gold American Mining Corp. Successfully Completes Drilling at Guadalupe

RENO, NV--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Gold American Mining Corp. (OTCBB: SILA) ("Gold American" and/or "the Company") is pleased to announce that drilling operations were successfully completed at its Guadalupe Property located in the heart of the Fresnillo district in Zacatecas, Mexico.

As previously reported on our press release dated October 11, 2010, the Company set out to conduct 2,500 meters of exploratory drilling on the Guadalupe Property. The Company is pleased to report that an actual total of 7 diamond drill holes totaling 2,502.5 meters (8,210.3 feet) have been successfully completed at the property.

All notable samples of interest have been shipped to Steward Labs in Canada for analysis and the Company is awaiting the definitive assay results. The Company will announce them as soon as they are received. The results of the first two drill holes were reported on our press release dated November 16, 2010.

"Diamond drilling proceeded very smoothly with over 2,500 meters drilled. The Company is satisfied that the preliminary findings to-date are so far consistent with the wealth of historical data that we have on the property," commented Mr. Johannes Petersen, Gold American's CEO. "Ultimately, our efforts are aimed at validating the project's ability to support the establishment of a viable commercial mining operation by accurately assessing gold/silver tonnages and grades across the property," added Mr. Petersen.

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 1980s. The property is completely surrounded by land controlled by Peñoles.

Highlight results from previous results include:

  • 1.00 g/t Au and 946.9 g/t Ag over 1.1m (including 1.83 g/t Au and 1,800.0 g/t Ag over 0.5 m)
  • 0.30 g/t Au and 622.0 g/t Ag from a mineralized dump
  • 0.59 g/t Au and 330.0 g/t Ag over 0.7 m
  • 5.35 g/t Au and 1,189.0 g/t Ag from a mineralized dump
