March 20, 2013

(March 20, 2013, Vancouver, B.C., Canada) – AM Gold Inc. (“AM Gold” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that the  optionee of the Company’s Pinaya Gold-Copper Project, Rokmaster Resources Corp. (“Rokmaster”), has discovered a new zone on the project yielding results up to 2.91% copper and 36.0 grams per tonne (“g/t”) silver over 2.0 metres.

In a news release dated today’s date Rokmaster disclosed:

“Rock chip sample results from an argillic altered 300 x 400 metre area hosted by porphyritic andesites yielded highly anomalous copper and silver values. Mineralization includes fracture controlled malachite and chrysocolla associated with moderate to strong limonite oxidation. This new porphyry target is located on trend 10.5 km southwest of the Western Porphyry resource area (9.5 km from the nearest drill hole) and immediately southeast of the Saitocco Zone. Reconnaissance rock chip samples within the area contained up to 2.91 % copper with 36.0 g/t silver and 0.946 % copper with 120.0 g/t silver, over two metre sample widths in fractured host porphyritic andesites. All analytical work was carried out by ACME Analytical Laboratories Ltd., an ISO 9001 & ISO/IEC 17025 accredited laboratory in Vancouver, BC, Canada. More work is recommended for this zone, known as Plata Sur, including mapping, rock sampling, and trenching.


  1. Results from 4,290 soil samples were received recently and are being compiled and interpreted.
  2. Additional property wide prospecting, geological mapping, soil and rock sampling were completed under the supervision of Pinaya Project Director, Kenneth Konkin, P. Geo.
  3. Generation of six high quality porphyry copper gold and oxide gold diamond drill targets on the Pinaya trend.


  1. Preparation for submission of the 20 platform diamond drilling and trenching permit application, together with the Environmental Impact Statement and the Pinaya Community agreements, is near completion.
  2. Compilation of geological, geochemical, geophysical and historical drill data by the Pinaya technical team continues. The work includes:
    1. definition of the principal ore controls, geological host, alteration type and intensity.
    2. definition of the principal geological characteristics of the Tintaya, Antapaccay and Las Bambas deposits and compare these to Pinaya.  
    3. provision of general guidelines of the major lithologic types, structural relationships and alteration features of gold dominant low sulphidation and intrusive hosted copper-gold mineralized zones.”
