Sierra Gold Corp. (Pink Sheets:SGCP) is pleased to announce that it is now ready to commence dredging activities with all 4 dredges as soon as river levels permit.
All equipment has been pre-located at initial selected sites and all licensing/permitting has been completed.
Site prospecting is underway and will continue and be expanded as water levels recede to a point where all full scale dredging activity can commence.
Doug Evans, CEO of Sierra Gold Corp. commented, "Having just returned from Sierra Leone, I am extremely optimistic about the upcoming season.
Two of the company's dredges are currently prospecting the overburden sand at selected sites, and the gold and diamond showings are highly encouraging considering debilitating river conditions.
When full operations commence (all 4 dredges), it is expected that the equipment will process 125 tons per hour on a conservative basis for the 180-200 days season, giving Sierra Gold a strong financial year."

Sierra Gold Announces Planned Participation in Carbon Credit Programs to Fund Its Mining and Agricultural Operations
Press Release Source: Sierra Gold Corporation On Tuesday September 15, 2009, 10:25 am EDT
TORONTO, Sept. 15, 2009 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "Sierra Gold Corporation (Pink Sheets:SGCP - News) announced today that it has reached an agreement
with the landowners in its area of agricultural interests to utilize up to 70% of its agricultural holdings for Carbon Credit development programs.
A number of world organizations have established these programs to enable companies to accumulate carbon credits that can be exchanged for money.
Carbon Credits are allotted to companies that support the environment in such ways as committing designated forest land to
non-logging operations, re-foresting previously logged or mined lands, and growing alternative bio-fuel crops.
The funds received from the Carbon Credit programs will be utilized by the company to fund further development of its mining and agricultural operations in Sierra Leone.
Doug Evans, CEO of Sierra Gold, commented: "We are pleased about the opportunity to participate in the Carbon Credit programs.
The fact that we can move our projects forward by supporting the environment is an ideal position to be in and a very proactive way to bring increasing value to our shareholders".
Sierra Gold is engaged in the exploration and development of gold and diamond properties in West Africa.
The Birimian greenstone belt of West Africa has had a long history of gold mining and prospecting.
The region has been one of the fastest gold producing areas worldwide. Sierra Leone's neighbours, Ghana and Mali, are the second and third largest gold producers in all of Africa."
