October 20, 2011, Calgary, Alberta: Antioquia Gold Inc. ("Antioquia Gold" or "the Company") (TSX-V: AGD; OTCQX: AGDXF) is pleased to announce the discovery of a second vein system in the footwall of the Guaico structure at its Cisneros Project in Colombia. Drilling also continues to define the primary structure at Guaico along strike and to depth. Significant intersections in this recent round of drilling include:
19.56 g/t Au over 3.50 meters, including 33.68 g/t Au over 2.00 meters;
34.08 g/t Au over 2.0 meters, including 135.90 g/t Au over 0.50 meters and;
15.12 g/t Au over 3.70 meters, including 103.10 g/t Au over 0.50 meters.
For reference Figures 1 and 2 are included to provide the overall location and drill hole positions. Table 1 below provides a summary of results from the Guaico structure.
Delineation drilling at the Guaico structure has resulted in the discovery of a second parallel vein system, reporting in hole GC011-009 a grade of 14.20 g/t Au over 1.60 meters, in the footwall of the previously known Guaico (primary) vein (Figure 2). It is very apparent that the Guaico structure, originally assumed to be a single structural unit, can now be interpreted as at least two, parallel, en-echelon gold-bearing veins striking to the northeast and having a combined and confirmed strike length of at least 200 meters. The Guaico structure and mineralization has been intersected 300 meters below surface and remains open to depth.
Select results of ten (10) drill holes; GCO11-005 through GCO11-014 amounting to 2,349 meters of diamond drilling are listed in the following Table 1 along with some of the intercepts previously released:
To understand and appreciate the increasing size and resource potential of the Cisneros Project please refer to the recent press releases of September 12th, 15th, and 21st, 2011 respectively.
"This newest set of results and vein discovery at the Guaico structure provide additional encouragement to the Antioquia Team as they progress on a resource calculation for the Cisneros Project. This new information also assists in the move towards the exploration tunnels and a production decision," commented Rick Thibault, President and CEO of Antioquia Gold Inc.
About Antioquia Gold Inc.
Antioquia Gold has been exploring for precious metals in Colombia since 2007. The Company has a land package of close to 40,000 hectares located throughout Colombia. Antioquia's principal asset, which is being actively explored, is its 5,630 hectare Cisneros Project, located 55 kilometers northeast of Medellin in the Department of Antioquia, Colombia. At the Cisneros Project the Company has conducted extensive geochemical and geophysical programs over the entire property and has identified to date six exploration targets. On the original discovery zone it has drilled over 29,000 meters and is well versed in the understanding of the deposit type and the project's path to resource definition and production.
To ensure reliable sample results Antioquia Gold 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.
This press release has been prepared under the supervision of Brad Van Den Bussche, P. Geol., Vice President of Exploration for Antioquia Gold Inc. and a Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
