Sur American Gold Engages Paradox Public Relations Inc. as IR Consultants

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 19, 2006) - Sur American Gold Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SUR) is very pleased to advise that the Company has engaged Paradox Public Relations Inc. ("Paradox") of Montreal to provide proactive investor relations services to the Company for a period of 12 months.

Paradox has, subject to regulatory approval, been granted 360,000 stock options at a price of $0.35 and will be paid $4000.00 per month.

Sur American Gold Corporation is a resource-rich junior exploration company with a large portfolio of exploration projects and prospects in the Philippines and in Colombia.

It is currently undertaking an aggressive exploration program consisting of geophysical surveying, trenching and core drilling at its Comval copper-gold project in the Philippines where initial results at its Tagpura copper-gold prospect have been highly encouraging and indicate the presence of a large potential near surface sulphide copper-gold resource which is currently undergoing drill testing.

Across the other side of the Agusan River Valley from Tagpura at the Company's large Batoto gold prospect, initial highly prospective drilling results have been reviewed and plans are now being made to undertake a phase 2 drilling program. A major geophysical survey at Batoto consisting of about 200 line km of IP and ground magnetics has discovered a major new geophysical target significantly larger than anything yet found in the entire Comval project.

A full review of this new large anomaly is underway with a view to commencing a major drilling program early in 2007.

Work programs are also now underway in Colombia where previous work by the Company, including diamond drilling has outlined long intervals of potentially economic gold mineralization.

Company President and CEO, Mr. Rennie Blair, added, "clearly, we are entering a very exciting phase in the history of the Company and it is very apparent that as a result of being so active in the next 12 months we will need to effectively disseminate all of our results to our shareholders and the investment community at large. We are therefore obviously delighted to have Paradox as part of the SUR team."

This news release was prepared by Mr. Rennie Blair, Company President, who is the qualified person as required by National Policy 43-101 and who is the technical person responsible for this news release.

Sur American Gold Corporation is a well financed junior exploration Company and trades on the TSX Venture Exchange (Canada) with trading symbol SUR-V.
