Maya Gold & Silver Inc. Annouces new gold discoveries at its Amizmiz project in Morocco

Montreal, Quebec, September 1, 2009 – MAYA GOLD & SILVER (TSX-V: MYA) is pleased to announce the discovery of two additional zones of mineralization (TRNC and TRND) on its Amizmiz project in Morocco.

1- As announced by press release on August 18, 2009, recent mapping (approximately 750 metres from AZ and T zones where low grade-bulk tonnage and high grade vein type deposits have been identified) has led to the discovery of two new mineralized zones.

2- More recently, two additional zones have been identified 120 metres east of the TRNA Zone and channel sampling was carried out.

On the TRNC Zone, 10 channel samples were collected over a length of 19.55 metres and returned an average grade of 9.46 g-Au/t Au with an average width of 1.68 metres.

On the TRND ZONE, 6 channel samples collected over a length of 22 metres, returned low values in gold.

As TRNA and TRNB mineralized zones, these two new zones appear to be long stratabound layers of what might be considered as a deposition of black smoker ashes on a carbonated sea floor.

Results are presented in the following table:


Samples were prepared and assayed at Laboratoire Reminex (ISO 9000) at Guemassa, Morocco. All analysis reported above were obtained by standard fire assaying-AA and gravimetric finish. Systematic assaying of standards and blanks was performed for precision and accuracy.
