TintinaGold Begins Drilling Sheep Creek Copper-Cobalt Project

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 14, 2010) - TintinaGold Resources Inc. ("TintinaGold" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:TAU) is pleased to announce that it has commenced drilling on the Company's Sheep Creek copper-cobalt project located in central Montana. 

Sheep Creek Drilling Program

The Company has mobilized a drill rig and crew to its 100%-owned Sheep Creek copper-cobalt project (the "Property") located in central Montana, U.S.A. The drill program is expected to begin later this week. The company plans a 2,000 meter core drilling program at the Property this year. The current program will focus on testing stratigraphically controlled mineralization identified by previous workers. 

The Sheep Creek Project lies approximately 20 miles north of the community of White Sulphur Springs, Montana, and consists of long term mining leases on approximately 4,714 acres of private ranch land. The Company acquired the Property in May, 2010. The property has gravel road access and is within 2 miles of an all-weather highway. The Property is also near a high voltage power line and is 40 miles from rail service. The Company hopes to quickly outline a significant copper-cobalt resource at Sheep Creek through verification of historic data and new drilling. 

Copper-cobalt deposits at Sheep Creek occur in extensive shale-hosted massive and bedded sulfide zones. These sulfide zones contain copper, cobalt, and barite and occur at multiple levels throughout at least 750 meters of stratigraphy. Some zones show great lateral extent and some reach over 100 meters thick.

Jerry Zieg, TintinaGold's VP exploration stated, "The copper-cobalt deposits at Sheep Creek occur in rocks of the Belt Supergroup, a middle Proterozoic age sedimentary basin. This is also the setting for other economically important metal deposits including the Sullivan Zn-Pb-Ag deposit, the Revett Cu-Ag deposits, and the Blackbird Cu-Co deposit."

Jerry Zieg, Vice President Exploration for the Company, is a Qualified Person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101 and has reviewed and approved the information of a scientific nature contained in this news release.
