September 21, 2011, Calgary, Alberta: Antioquia Gold Inc. ("Antioquia Gold" or "the Company") (TSX-V: AGD; OTCQX: AGDXF) is pleased to announce that the Company has extended the Guayabito and El Bolo structures to depth and along strike at the Guayabito deposit at its Cisneros Project, Colombia. Refer to Figure 1 for location.
Antioquia Gold adjusted the drilling direction for its 2011 drilling campaign enabling a better definition of the host structures. Five (5) northeast trending, en-echelon, steeply dipping, plunging vein systems have been confirmed at Guayabito and at least four (4) additional parallel vein systems that Antioquia Gold is currently drilling (refer to Figure 2). Gold mineralization at the Guayabito deposit has now been delineated to a depth of 300 metres and up to 200 metres along strike. The nine (9) vein systems remain open along strike and to depth. Antioquia Gold is confident that the en-echelon style of mineralization will continue to depth and along strike. As exploration continues, experience suggests that additional vein systems should be encountered. Highlights of the 2011 Guayabito drilling include16.21 g/t Au over 4.0 metres, including 112.3g/t over 0.5m (drill hole GYB11-052) and 2.21 g/t Au over 27.2 metres (drill hole GYB11-057).
"The results are exciting because this combination of new structures at Guayabito and those announced at Soroma, Chamuela and Papi last week, provides confidence for the next step of underground exploration tunnels, furthering Antioquia's goal of moving forward towards a production decision," said Brad Van Den Bussche, Vice President, Exploration
Select results of eight (8) drill holes; GYB11-051 through GYB11-058 amounting to 2107.2 metres of diamond drilling are listed in Table 1 below:
