      AMADOR GOLD CORP. DRILLING DISCOVERS NEW NEAR-SURFACE
      NICKEL-COPPER ZONE 400 METERS FROM COMINCO ZONE
=======================================================================

.. MINERALIZATION OCCURS APPROXIMATELY 30 METERS VERTICALLY BELOW
SURFACE
.. DRILL TESTING TO BE DONE ON STRIKE AND DOWNDIP OF NEW INTERCEPT
.. 3 OF 33 VTEM TARGETS TESTED IN RECENT DRILL PROGRAM
.. MINERALIZATION SIMILAR TO COMINCO ZONE


VANCOUVER BC - Amador Gold Corp. (TSX-V:AGX) (the 'Company')  is
pleased to announce a new Ni-Cu discovery on its wholly owned Loveland
property approximately 35 kilometers northwest of Timmins, Ontario.
Drill hole LL09-07 intersected 1.02% combined Ni-Cu over 5.4 meters
drilled width from 36.90 to 42.30 meters. This includes a section which
assayed 2.12% combined Ni-Cu over 1.5 meters from 36.90 to 38.40 meters
drilled width.
Only 3 of the current 33 VTEM conductors have been tested in this drill
program; A, B and C on the attached map.

The discovery drill hole, which tested the weakest of four VTEM
anomalies in cluster B, was collared on a north-south trending array of
VTEM conductors, and represents a new nickel-copper discovery in the
Loveland Township.  The remaining 3 anomalies are on strike and yet to
be tested.  No drill testing has been done on strike or downdip of this
new intercept.
The intercept occurred approximately 30 meters vertically below surface
and approximately 400 meters north of the Cominco Zone and 2 km north
of the Hollinger Zone.* Mineralization is similar to the Cominco Zone
consisting of interstitial chalcopyrite-pyhrrhotite-pentlandite hosted
within gabbros.
"This new discovery affirms our strategy of drill testing VTEM
conductors similar to those above the historic Cominco and Hollinger
Zones.  We are excited by these latest results as they confirm the
potential for additional new nickel-copper zones on the property. We
are currently in the planning stage of a follow-up drilling program to
further test this new zone as well as other VTEM conductor targets."
comments Company president, Richard Hughes.
Exploration activity and drilling to date has focused on 3 objectives;
expanding the historic Cominco Zone, testing the gold zone discovered
beneath the Cominco Zone for continuity at depth and along strike, and
exploring newly defined airborne VTEM targets for nickel-copper and
gold potential.  More results are currently being reviewed and are
forthcoming.

Past copper-nickel results from Cominco Zone drilling include:

.. 0.70% Ni/0.75% Cu over 45 m
.. 0.40% Ni/0.55% Cu over 35.5 m
.. 0.53% Ni/0.88% Cu over 22.80 m

Previous gold results include:
.. 6.37 g/t Au over 8.55 m
.. 6.17 g/t Au over 3.0 m
.. 10.39 g/t Au over 3.1 m

Drill hole LL09-06 tested Conductor C also encountered anomalous nickel
copper mineralization close to surface.  Drill hole LL09-05 tested
Conductor A but returned no significant values.  Similar clusters of
VTEM conductors also occur on the Cominco and Hollinger showings.  The
Company plans to continue drill testing on Conductors B and C as well
as the remaining clusters of VTEM conductors.

*The Cominco Zone contains a historic non-compliant NI 43-101 resource
of 130,000 tons grading 0.68% Ni and 0.73% Cu and the Hollinger Zone
contains a historic non-compliant NI 43-101 resource of 422,000 tons
grading 0.71% Ni and 0.42% Cu. A qualified person has not done
sufficient work to classify these historical estimates as current
mineral resources. The Company is not treating the historical estimates
as current mineral resources and the historical estimates should not be
relied upon.

Company's Loveland Project. Project supervision is by Charles Hartley
and the contents of this news release has been reviewed and approved by
