Amarillo Gold Completes Definition Drilling  at Mara Rosa Gold Project in Brazil and Reports Results from 4 Holes �  Including 7m @ 6.36 g/t Au Intercept

Amarillo Gold Corp. (TSX-V: AGC) (�Amarillo� or the �Company�) is pleased to announce completion of the definition drilling program on the Mara Rosa project. The entire program consisted of 31 drill holes totaling 8524 metres  designed to upgrade the defined gold resource at Mara Rosa from the inferred category into the measured and indicated categories. The program focused on material contained within the theoretical "Whittle" open pit shell optimized for a US$1000/ounce gold price. The new infill drilling increases the total metres completed to 33,024m from 24,500m previously reported.

Amarillo has reported assay results for 15 drill holes from this definition program prior to this news release, (see AGC News Releases March 3, 2011, and Feb.1, 2011). Four additional holes are reported here and shown in Table 1 below, bringing the total results received to 19 drill holes. The locations of collars for the drill holes reported in this news release are provided in Table 2.

Notes: All drill hole samples consist of split HQ diamond drill core. The samples were sent to Acme Laboratories in Goiania, Brazil, and Vancouver, Canada.  Gold is determined by fire assay using 30g aliquots with an ICP finish. All samples are subject to a chain  of custody and are submitted with standards and blanks to check the assay results. The laboratories also use internal standards and repeat analysis.  For the results reported in this news release all  standards, blanks and repeats delivered acceptable results. Intercepts were calculated using a minimum  0.5 g/t cut off where any one sample point lies within a 5m intersection averaging at least 0.5 g/t Au.  True width was determined assuming the mineralization has an average dip of 45 degrees.

A request has been made to the laboratory to expedite the processing of assay results for the remaining 12 drill holes for which assays are pending. When the final assays are received, a new NI 43-101 compliant resource estimate will be generated. This new resource estimate will become an integral part of the ongoing pre-feasibility study.

About Amarillo Gold Corp.

Amarillo Gold Corp. is focused on the acquisition, discovery, and definition of gold resources in Brazil. The Company�s principal projects are the Mara Rosa Project in the state of Goias, and the Lavras do Sul Project in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The Posse Deposit at Mara Rosa contains 623,000 ounces of gold indicated from 11.9 MT at 1.62 g/t Au, and 451,000 ounces of gold inferred from 10.1 MT at 1.38 g/t Au (0.5 g/t cut-off grade) (NI 43-101 compliant resource as independently determined by Australian Exploration Field Services Pty. AEFS) The Mara Rosa  Gold Project is in the Pre-feasibility stage.
The Posse Deposit was successfully mined by Western Mining Company (WMC) during the 1990s (mined areas are excluded from the above-stated resource figures), and is located in an area of excellent infrastructure approximately 35 km NE of Yamana�s Chapada open pit Cu-Au operation, 105 km NE of Serra Grande�s underground Au mine, 105 km NNW of Anglo American�s Ni laterite project (in construction), 95 km NW of Votarintim�s Niquelandia Ni laterite mine, and some 60 km NE of Yamana�s Pilar Au project (in Feasibility).Grid power to the site was established during WMC�s open pit mining operation, and the  Serra da Mesa (450 MW) hydro-electric dam lies 35 km to the east.

The Lavras do Sul Project is an advanced exploration stage property (190 sq. km.) comprised of more than 19 prospects centered on historic gold workings, with encouraging gold mineralization discovered and defined by more than 16,000 metres of drilling. The initial resource estimate at the Butia prospect reported 215,000 ounces of gold indicated from 6.4 MT at 1.05 g/t Au, and 308,000 ounces of gold inferred from 12.9 MT at 0.74 g/t Au ((0.3 g/t cut-off grade)(NI 43-101 compliant resource as independently determined by Atticus Consulting 2010). Lavras do Sul is also located near excellent infrastructure. The Company also has a portfolio of earlier stage projects and all properties under Amarillo�s management are located in areas of good infrastructure and mining-friendly communities.
