Maya Gold & Silver Reports High-Grade Results From 3 Additional Zones

Montreal, Quebec, October 7, 2009 – MAYA GOLD & SILVER (TSX-V: MYA) is pleased to announce high-grade gold results from its surface channel sampling program on its Amizmiz gold and silver project in Morocco.

Recent mapping (approximately 350 metres south from AZ and T zones where low grade-bulk tonnage and high grade layer type deposits have been identified) has led to the localisation of three more showings.

The AZS-1, AZS-2 and AZN zones have been partly stripped and channel sampled. The mineralized zones appear again to be long stratabound layers.

  • On the AZS-1 zone, 8 channel samples were collected over a length of 16 m and returned an average grade of 11.9 g/t Au and 21.9 g/t Ag (including 30.90 g/t Au and 60 g/t Ag over 1.60 metre) on an average width of 1.7 metre.
  • On the AZS-2 zone, 5 channel samples were collected over a length of 9 m and returned an average grade of 25.1 g/t Au on an average width of 0.87 metre (including 31.69 g/t Au over 1 metre).
  • On the AZN zone, 11 channel samples were collected over a length of 16m and returned an average grade of 12.3 g/t Au and 33.7 g/t Ag on an average width of 0.54 m (including 69.33 g/t Au and 47 g/t Ag over 0.45 metre).

These zones are situated approximately 1.1 km east of TRNA which returned values of 26.16 g/t Au over 0.98 metre, followed over a stripped length of 34 metres and TRNC, which gave 9.46 g/t Au over 1.68 metre followed over a stripped length of 19.55 metres (see press releases dated August 18 and September 1, 2009).

Complete channel results of the AZS-1, AZS-2 and AZN showings are available in the annexed table. click here to view the results table (pdf file).
