Alpha Gold mobilises diamond drill to test new ground in the Kwanika Valley at Lustdust

    COQUITLAM, BC, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Alpha Gold Corp. (TSX-V: ALQ) today
announced that permitting is underway for a 3000-metre diamond drilling
program to commence this week on territory never before drilled, in the
Kwanika Valley on the Company's 100%-owned Lustdust property in central B.C.
    The drilling program will target an area approximately 50 metres from
Alpha's eastern border with Serengeti Resources Inc.'s (TSX-V: SIR) Kwanika
Project where that company has recently reported significant intersections
from a series of holes lying approximately 100 metres away from Alpha Gold's
property line (Serengeti press release dated July 31, 2008). This area lies
approximately 2.5 km southeast of the heavily mineralized Canyon Creek Skarn.
    Alpha Gold's targets are approximately 150 metres from Serengeti's K-96
hole and will test for continuity of gold-copper mineralization.
    George Whatley, President and CEO of Alpha Gold explained, "Alpha Gold is
in the enviable position not only to hold 100% interest in the
multi-mineralized Lustdust Property but also to have the cash in hand that
allows the Company to avoid the unsubstantiated dilution that so many other
exploration companies have experienced when closing equity financings since
spring 2008. We are ready and financed to proceed and react to new discoveries
now and add value to Lustdust."
    The Company's chief consulting geologist, Daryl J. Hanson, P.Eng., is the
Company's "Qualified Person" under National Instrument 43-101 and is
overseeing the exploration program.
