      Amador Gold Corp. Provides Summary on Ontario Projects

VANCOUVER, BC -- Amador Gold Corp. (TSX-V:AGX) (the "Company") is
pleased to provide a summary of the progress and highlights of recent
exploration programs and proposed further work at its gold and base
metal projects in Ontario.

The company's strategy is to identify and explore favourable geology
for hosting base and precious metal deposits.  To maximize the
potential for success the company focuses on areas with a proven track
record for discovering major deposits, such as the Timmins mining area.
  Existing labour force and infrastructure (such as roads, power, and
ore/metal processing facilities) in these areas allows for a more
efficient use of exploration dollars and increases the potential for
bringing a mine into production.

Loveland Copper/Nickel/Gold Project

.. 2008 gold results include:
o 6.37 g/t gold over 8.55 meters
o 6.17 g/t gold over 3.0 meters
o 10.39 g/t gold over 3.1 meters
.. 2008 nickel-copper results include:
o  0.70% nickel and 0.75% copper over 45 meters
o 0.40% nickel and 0.55% copper over 35.5 meters
o 0.53% nickel and 0.88% copper over 22.80 meters
.. Historic Cominco Zone: Non-compliant NI 43-101 resource of 130,000
tons grading 0.68% nickel and 0.73% copper.*
.. Historic Hollinger Zone: Non-compliant 43-101 resource of 422,000
tons grading 0.71% nickel and 0.42% copper.*
.. 2008/2009 drill program showed high-grade results and continuity of
gold mineralization.
.. Further analysis is under way to study areas with potential gold
mineralization and examine the numerous VTEM anomalies for new drilling
.. Property flown by VTEM, with numerous anomalies identified. Of the 33
defined VTEM targets, only three have been drilled to date.
.. The discovery of gold adds a new dimension to the Company's most
advanced copper/nickel project and significantly increases the overall
potential of the Loveland property.

Horwood Gold/VMS Project
.. 2008 Bend zone drilling highlights:
o 12.35 grams per tonne gold over 2.4 meters
.. Grab samples from quartz veins 2 km northeast of the Bend and Gabbro
o 17.30 g/t gold
o 22.72 g/t gold 
o 19.68 g/t gold
.. Known gold targets include the Haddington Zone, which returned
positive results from limited drilling in the mid-1990s.
o 11.66 grams/tonne gold over 1.45 meters
o 3.33 g/t and 3.03 g/t gold in recent grab samples
.. Property also hosts VMS-style (volcanogenic massive sulphide)
mineralization discovered while testing an airborne VTEM anomaly during
the 2008 drilling program.
o 1.3 meters grading 4.47% copper and 2.03% zinc
.. The style of mineralization is similar to deposits in the Timmins
camp that have collectively produced more than 70 million ounces of
gold during the past century.
.. Entire property has been flown with the airborne VTEM system.
.. Trenching is underway and drill-testing is being planned for
gold-bearing zones on strike and at depth in order to identify higher
concentrations of gold in high-grade shoots or extensive low-grade
zones amenable to open-pit mining.
.. The 2009 summer exploration program is currently defining existing
gold and VMS zones as well as vectoring in on potential targets for
future drilling.

Kell Silver Project

.. Drilling highlights include:
o 2,401 g/t silver over 1.73 meters
o 4,580.4 g/t silver over 0.53 meter
o 3.574.5 g/t silver over 0.40 meter
o 262 g/t silver over 8.63 meters
.. Hosts silver-cobalt-nickel mineralization in a series of en-echelon
quartz-calcite veins in a deformation zone averaging three to eight
metres wide.
.. The Company conducted magnetic and electromagnetic surveys across the
vein, and drilled 17 holes totaling 2270 meters, testing the Kell vein
along strike and at shallow depths.
.. In 1920-21, a shipment of 1,558 lbs of rock gave 1,620.9 ounces of

Jessop Project

.. The primary target is a quartz feldspar porphyry rock unit. This type
of unit is known to act as an "engine" to circulate gold-bearing
.. In 1986, Pamour Gold Mines systematically sampled the till along the
southern boundary of the present-day Jessop property and found gold
values as high as 58 grams per tonne.
.. Recent VTEM results along with historical data have been compiled to
assess the property's mineral potential.
.. Summer plans include ground geophysics to define future drill

Maskooch Project

.. Geological environment prospective for hosting volcanogenic massive
sulphide (VMS) and precious metal mineralization.
.. Accessible by well-maintained logging roads and lies 12 km southeast
of the past-producing South Bay Mine, a copper-zinc-silver massive
sulphide deposit that produced 1.6 million tons of ore averaging 1.8%
copper, 11.06% zinc and 2.12 oz. silver per ton.
.. Maskooch Gold Showing, a 9-to-10-meter wide shear zone associated
with chlorite and ankerite that historically produced assays up to 16
g/t gold. Preliminary mapping suggests that the shear zone can be
followed for several kilometers across the property.  Where shear zone
intersects with iron formations may provide chemical traps for gold
mineralization; these areas are future exploration targets.
.. Recent VTEM airborne geophysical survey has identified Volganogenic
Massive Sulphide (VMS -- copper, zinc, silver) targets across the
property in areas with alteration zones favourable for hosting large

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.

Amador holds other projects in Ontario, and is also planning to begin
ground geophysical and soil geochemical surveys to test known gold
zones at its Dale property near Timmins.
