Antioquia Gold Inc. is currently in the process of defining an initial resource calculation for the Cisneros Project. The intercepts from the nine (9) drill holes contained in this press please represent the final drill holes completed at the Guayabito deposit in 2011. Combined with the eight (8) drill holes reported in the press release of September 21, 2011, a total of 6,017 meters were drilled at Guayabito in 2011. The results of these 17 drill holes, along with all other data from the 2009 and 2010 drilling and exploration campaigns, are currently being used by Moose Mountain Technical Services in calculating the resource for Guayabito.
Brad Van Den Bussche, VP Exploration explains, "The 2011 drilling program at Guayabito has enhanced our understanding of the deposit. We are pleased that additional drilling, like drill hole GYB11-060, resulted in new discoveries that expand the area. With more understanding of the Cisneros Project, such as the Guayabito deposit along with the continued intersection of mineralized areas, it increases the database that can be used in the ongoing process of developing a resource definition".

The Table below reflects highlights of the final eight (8) 2011 drill holes at Guayabito.
To ensure reliable sample results Antioquia has a rigorous QA/QC program in place that monitors the chain of custody of the samples and includes the insertion of blanks, preparation duplicates, field duplicates, and certified reference standards in each batch of samples. Core is photographed and sawed in half with one half retained in a secured facility for future reference if needed. Sample preparation (crushing and pulverizing) is performed at either SGS or ACME laboratories in Medellin, Colombia.
Samples prepared by SGS (Medellin) are direct-shipped to SGS Laboratories in Lima, Peru or Toronto Canada, both ISO certified laboratories, for analysis. Samples prepared by ACME (Medellin) are direct shipped to ACME Laboratories in Vancouver Canada, also an ISO certified laboratory for analysis. Assay for gold is performed by fire assay with 30g charge and AAS finish, with a gravimetric finish for over limit samples.
