Otis Initiates Environmental Scoping Study at Kilgore Gold Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 8, 2010) - Otis Gold Corp. (TSX:OOO) ("Otis" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that Golder Associates Inc. ("Golder") of Denver, Colorado has been awarded a contract to complete an Environmental Scoping Study ("ESS") for its Kilgore Gold Project, Clark County, Idaho. The objectives of the ESS are to identify, early on, key environmental, ecological and socio-economic issues, constraints and opportunities that will feed into a Pre-Feasibility study to be initiated after the current 2010 forty-hole drill campaign is completed and assay results have been received.

Golder will review the applicable regulatory framework and outline the various steps necessary for the development of the project. Furthermore, it will identify required permits and processes leading to the development and implementation of a possible mining scenario should the Pre-Feasibility study prove to be positive. Golder has already completed its preliminary field visit to the Kilgore site and the completed ESS report is expected by early December.
