Antioquia Gold Completes 2012 Drilling Program at Cisneros

Final Results include 27.0 g/t Au / 2.6 m at Guaico and 8.9 g/t Au / 3.3 m at Guayabito

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Antioquia Gold Inc. ("Antioquia Gold" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:AGD)(OTCQX:AGDXF) is pleased to announce all final drill hole results have been received thus completing the 2012 Drilling Program at its flagship Cisneros Project in Colombia. The Company is currently compiling, interpreting and modeling the results of the program to be used in the preparation of an NI 43-101 compliant resource report and an accompanying Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA"). It is anticipated that both reports will be released in the first part of 2013.

2012 Drilling Highlights:


--  Drilling at the Guaico deposit extended high grade mineralization to a
    vertical depth of 400 metres. 
--  Drilling at the Guayabito deposit successfully extended the strike
    length an additional 150 metres to the north and to a vertical depth of
    500 metres. 
--  Both deposits consist of multiple en-echelon vein systems and both
    deposits remain open along strike and to depth. 
--  In all, forty-six (46) holes were completed amounting to 13,111 metres
    of drilling, including ten (10) drill holes (2.434 m) at the Papi /
    Ivana prospect. 

Guaico Deposit Final Results:

Drill hole GCO12-036 intersected 8.7 metres of 8.2 g/t Au including 2.6 metres of 26.9 g/t Au and has confirmed high-grade gold mineralization at Guaico to a vertical depth of 400 metres. This mineralization is seventy (70) metres vertically below previously announced drill result from drill hole GCO12-029 which included 6.6 metres of 10.2 g/t Au including 1.8 metres of 33.2 g/t Au (See Press Release dated September 27, 2012). The mineralization defined above is a new discovery made in 2012 and confirms additional mineralized en-echelon vein systems occurring in the footwall and at depth relative to the original Guaico discovery. Highlights of drill results for the final five (5) drill holes drilled at Guaico in 2012 can be found in Table 1 below. The 2012 drill hole locations are illustrated in Figure 1 and a Section view illustrating results of drill hole GCO12-036 and previously released GCO12-029 (Figure 2) are attached and can be found on the company's website; link to www.antioquiagoldinc.com.

Drill holes GCO12-032 and GCO12-034 intersected the intended alteration     
envelopes but did not intersect significant mineralization.                 

Guayabito Deposit Final Results:

The final four (4) drill holes at Guayabito were designed to extend the Guayabito deposit further to the north along strike and to depth. All four (4) drill holes intersected the intended mineralization. Drill hole GYB12-086 intersected 6.2 metres of 6.3 g/t Au including 2.5 metres of 15.0 g/t Au. Results of the final four drill holes at Guayabito confirm the deposit extends to the north and to depth and remains open further along strike to the north and to depth. Highlights of the final four drill holes at Guayabito are listed in Table 2 below and all 2012 drill hole locations are illustrated in Figure 3.

About Antioquia Gold Inc.

Antioquia Gold has been exploring for precious metals in Colombia since 2007 and has accumulated a land package of close to 40,000 hectares located throughout Colombia. Antioquia Gold's principal asset, which is being actively explored, is its 5,630 hectare Cisneros Project, located 55 kilometres 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 eleven (11) exploration zones. On the original discovery zone it has drilled over 43,000 metres 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 ACME laboratories in Medellin, Colombia. Samples prepared by ACME (Medellin) are direct shipped to ACME Laboratories in Vancouver Canada, an ISO certified laboratory for analysis. Assay for gold (36 elements) is performed initially by 1Dx30g Agua Regia Digestion. Au values greater than 100,000 ppb are automatically checked by Gravimetric finish and Antioquia Gold further checks all assay values greater than or equal to 10,000 ppb by Metallic Assay. Furthermore, as part of the QA/QC program, Antioquia Gold has sent to SGS laboratory in Medellin Colombia batches of pulp samples for check Fire Assay's.
