March 2, 2009, Calgary, Alberta: Antioquia Gold Inc. (TSX-V: AGD) ("AGD") is pleased to announce the acquisition of additional key exploration lands at the company's Cisneros Project in the Department of Antioquia, Colombia.
The acquisition is comprised of a 100% interest in a 104 hectare property named Pacho Luis directly adjacent to AGD's Manuela concession, one of the prime exploration targets at Cisneros. Figure 1 below shows the location of the Pacho Luis property which has a history of artisanal gold mining as does the Manuela concession. The property was purchased from a private individual for cash and common shares of AGD subject to TSX-V approval.
