/ Source: GlobeNewswire

ATLANTA, April 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dutch Gold Resources, Inc. (OTCQB:DGRI) (the "Company") today announced that its board of directors has approved a resolution authorizing an increase in the number of authorized shares of the Corporation's common stock from 500,000,000 to 750,000,000. The action was taken, in part, to comply with contractual obligations to the shareholders of record of Aultra Gold, Inc. as of January 5, 2010.

"The Board of Directors believes that an increase in the number of shares of authorized common stock will benefit the Company and our stockholders by giving us needed flexibility in our corporate planning and in responding to developments in our business, including possible acquisition transactions, financings, and other general corporate purposes," stated Daniel Hollis, CEO of Dutch Gold Resources, Inc.

The Company reports good progress in its Basin Gulch drilling program and expects to post results within the next three weeks. Mr. Hollis added, "The Company has made real progress in Montana. We need the flexibility to acquire additional projects, and to further the exploration of our current projects." The Company does not currently anticipate the need for most of the incremental authorized shares.
