Including 10.80 meters @ 1.10 g/t gold and 85.2 g/t silver (2.8 g/t
gold equivalent)
And 12.50 meters @ 1.84 g/t gold and 98.5 g/t silver (3.8 g/t
gold equivalent)



J.D. Poliquin, Chairman of Almaden, commented, "We are very pleased with these new results which continue to confirm and show the Ixtaca zone to be a robust and wide system of veining with sections that carry high gold and silver grades. Including the veining of the newly discovered Ixtaca North zone, the Ixtaca vein system is wider than previously known. The new results reported today from the Ixtaca North continue to show that strong mineralisation and high gold grades exist here as well. Drilling to date on the Ixtaca vein system shows good continuity of mineralisation in both horizontal and vertical dimensions."

The Company currently has four drills operating on the Tuligtic project. Almaden plans to continue drilling operations throughout 2012.
