PROJECT IN HAND
(1) Guerra al Tirano (GAT) Project - Sierra Madre, Temoris, Chihuahua, Mexico
Azteca Gold Corporation through its wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Minera Azteca de Oro y Plata, S.A. de C.V. ("Minera Azteca"), has entered into an agreement with the Ejido Guerra al Tirano of Chinipas, Chihuahua, pursuant to which Minera Azteca has the right to use Ejido land covering approximately 95 hectares of the Company's mining concession in Chihuahua for all activities necessary for the exploration, development and production of potential ore deposits.

Tres de Mayo (TDM) Concession
The Guerra al Tirano/Tres de Mayo exploration target area falls near the middle of a historically productive gold-silver belt near Temoris, Chihuahua. The Tres de Mayo concession is the southernmost of the 3 concessions which make up the Guerra al Tirano Project. The closest gold exploration and development to the Guerra al Tirano/Tres de Mayo targets is the Palmarejo deposit controlled by Palmarejo Gold, 11 km on trend to the northwest.
Azteca has signed an agreement with Layne de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. for 5,000 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling. The Company has received gold and silver assays for the first core hole GAT-07-DDH-002, which over a true width of 27.5 ft averaged 0.55 g/t Au and 46.7 g/t Ag.

The Company awaits assays for the other 4 core holes and the RC holes in process. Assays and core logs for these 5 core holes and 33 RC holes are expected to allow the Company to define an initial resource on approximately the northernmost 1.6 km of the 2.5 km strike length of the Guerra al Tirano Project during the fourth quarter of 2007. With the Tres de Mayo lower drill road nearing completion, the Company has kicked off a two phase exploration program aimed at outlining a gold equivalent resource. The first phase of surface program will see the exposed vein mapped and sampled over the full North-South extent of the concessions. The second phase will employ step-out diamond drilling on the Tres de Mayo concession. Success in establishing a resource will lead to further exploration in fourth quarter of 2007 and into 2008 to improve the quality and extent of the resource.
