for Canyon Creek Skarn

COQUITLAM, BC, May 18 /CNW/ - Alpha Gold Corporation (TSX-V: ALQ) ("Alpha Gold" or the "Company") today reported as an early warning that before completing the expected NI 43-101 compliant technical report and resource estimate for the Canyon Creek Skarn zone on the Lustdust property of north-central B.C., Mr. Ron Simpson of GeoSim Services Inc. will be visiting the property to verify the drill hole collars that correspond with the drill data. The first planned trip for this inspection had to be cancelled since there was more than 3 feet of snow that had yet to melt.

The return to the property is rescheduled for the end of May; and the completed NI 43-101 technical report would follow in 7 to 10 days.
