      Amador Gold Samples 75.0 g/T Gold on New Zone at Horwood Property
=======================================================================

.. OTHER SAMPLES INCLUDE 57.1 G/T, 48.3 G/T, AND 43.3 G/T GOLD
.. COMPANY'S HIGHEST GRADE SAMPLES DISCOVERED TO DATE ON HORWOOD
PROPERTY

VANCOUVER -- Amador Gold Corp. (TSX-V:AGX) (the "Company") is pleased
to announce that its recent exploration program has identified new
high-grade gold targets at the Horwood Property situated approximately
85 km southwest of Timmins, Ontario.

An audio summary of this release and the Horwood property has been
prepared by Peter Caldbick, the Company's PGeo for the Horwood Project,
and is available through AGORACOM Investor Relations via the following
link (link will go live at approximately 9:30am EST, August 6, 2009):

Previous exploration programs had confirmed the presence of both gold
and volcanogenic massive sulphide-style (VMS) mineralization at the
wholly owned project. Previously reported grab samples from quartz
veins within gabbros returned values of 17.30 g/t (grams per tonne)
gold, 22.72 g/t gold and 19.68 g/t gold.

Recent trenching and stripping activities have exposed a series of
narrow, parallel quartz veins hosted within a granodioritic pluton
known as the Horwood Peninsula Pluton (HPP) proximal to a granodiorite
mafic metavolcanic contact.

The quartz veins are described as parallel sets of shallow,
southeast-dipping blue-grey veins with semi-massive bands of pyrite and
carbonate alteration up to 0.5 meters in width and trending 240 degrees
southwest.

A larger (30 cm) shear-hosted vein shows massive sulphide sections with
mostly pyrrhotite and pyrite with trace chalcopyrite. This structure
dips more steeply to the north and shows strike length potential.

.. Seven grab samples were taken, with four of the seven returning
grades of 75.0 g/t gold, 57.1 g/t gold, 48.3 g/t gold and 43.3 g/t gold
with the remaining samples containing anomalous values of concentrated
gold.

Further prospecting has revealed additional veins on strike within 100
meters of the recent stripping. Additional stripping and trenching has
commenced to further expose the multiple vein sets, to be followed by a
program of systematic channel sampling.

Amador's geological team is also compiling geophysical data in the area
to select additional prospective targets, as much of the property is
covered by overburden.

the Company's other Ontario exploration work please see the news
