New Gold Discovery on Amador's Horwood Property

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - September 12, 2007) - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX-V: AGX) ("Amador") is pleased to announce the discovery of a third large gold bearing zone on the Horwood Property, approximately 75 kilometers southwest of Timmins, Ontario. Three gold zones have been discovered by trenching and channel sampling to date. They are the Gabbro, Bend and Quartz Blowout gold zones.

Approximately 175 channel samples were collected from the newly discovered Gabbro zone with 98 samples grading greater than 1.0 g/t gold of which 39 samples graded greater than 3.0 g/t gold. Highlights from some of the separate channel samples of this zone include 13.03 g/t gold over 0.5m, 5.62 g/t over 4.0m, 2.09 g/t over 2.5m, 2.83 g/t over 5.0m, 2.79 g/t over 7.5m, 7.81 g/t over 1.5m, and 2.62 g/t over 5.5m.

The Bend Zone is located 500 metres west of the Gabbro zone and is exposed by trenching for over 950 square metres. Highlights of the sampling from this zone include 28.1 g/t gold over 0.5 metres, 4.29 g/t over 3 metres, 2.35 g/t gold over 2 metres and 5.94 g/t gold over 2 metres. A total of 245 channel samples were taken with 36 of the samples grading greater than 1.0 g/t Au and 17 samples grading greater than 2.0 g/t gold. The Bend and the Quartz Blowout zone were first discovered in late 2006, and initial grab sample results were announced in March 2007.

The Quartz Blowout zone encompasses an area of 500 square meters where mineralization is localized around a large bull quartz vein. 56 channel samples were collected and assays are pending. Initial grab samples returned values over 1.0 g/t gold and 6 samples over 2.0 g/t gold, including one grab sample grading 11.64 g/t gold, out of a total of 26 samples.

Initial mapping of the stripped areas has revealed mafic flows (locally pillowed) and mafic intrusives inhabited by enechelon stacked quartz carbonate veins within gossanous, carbonatized and pyritiferous alteration zones. Results to date indicate that gold mineralization is not restricted to the enechelon stacked quartz vein systems but occurs ubiquitously throughout the altered wallrock as well. All zones are open in all directions.

Geophysical surveys consisting of magnetic and induced polarization surveys have been completed over the stripped areas and along strike as well. The results are presently being evaluated.

A geochemical survey, mobile metal ion (MMI) soil sample survey has also been completed. The results of this survey are pending and will be evaluated when results are received.

Management is extremely encouraged by these initial results and plans to follow up in the fall with a program of diamond drilling to further examine these areas.
