Staccato Gold Commences Drilling at Windfall Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2009) - Staccato Gold Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:CAT) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling at its Windfall project, which is part of the Company's highly prospective South Eureka property in Nevada.

A track mounted drill rig arrived at the site last week to begin the initial 2,600 metre (8,000 foot) program which will target several new zones, as well as offset last year's intercept in hole 4 (5.25 g/t Au over 23 metres). Grant Ewing, Staccato's President and CEO stated, "We are pleased to initiate testing of the extensive and prospective Windfall structural zone along strike and at depth. Staccato is well funded to aggressively advance exploration and assess the full potential of this highly prospective project."

Staccato continues to assess the large geological, geochemical, and drill hole database as it develops an optimum exploration plan for the South Eureka property. The Company believes that there is excellent potential to increase the size of the defined gold resource at the Lookout Mountain project, and to discover new gold deposits on the extensive property. Several regional target areas exist where historic production has occurred as evidenced by old workings (i.e. Windfall project), but only limited systematic exploration has been conducted. Mapping and sampling programs are also ongoing to refine existing targets and develop new targets in the region.

This press release was reviewed by Gary Edmondo, M.Sc. Geology, who is Staccato's Senior Exploration Manager, and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators.
