Court Approves Plan Of Arrangement For Timberline's Acquisition Of Staccato Gold Resources

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, May 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Timberline Resources Corporation (NYSE Amex:TLR) ("Timberline") announced today that Staccato Gold Resources Ltd. (TSX-V:CAT) ("Staccato") has obtained the Final Order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia approving the proposed acquisition of Staccato by Timberline.

Timberline's shareholders will vote on the proposed plan of arrangement at their special meeting of shareholders to be held on May 28, 2010.  Timberline and Staccato expect to obtain all requisite approvals and meet all closing conditions, and they remain on track to close the transaction on or about June 2, 2010.

Assuming Timberline receives the requisite shareholder approval for the acquisition on May 28, 2010, Staccato will voluntarily halt trading of its common shares on the TSX Venture Exchange on Friday, May 28, 2010 until the Closing Date, and Timberline's shares of common stock will resume trading on the TSX Venture Exchange in substitution for Staccato's common shares on June 3, 2010 under the symbol "TBR".

With the completion of this Arrangement, Timberline will acquire Staccato's South Eureka property which includes a drill-tested exploration portfolio and the advanced-stage Lookout Mountain project, located along Nevada's Battle Mountain/ Eureka trend, and approximately $5 million in cash.

The South Eureka property is comprised of several projects included within one of the largest exploration land packages in the Battle Mountain/ Eureka Trend - approximately 15,000 acres.  The property has identified exploration potential evidenced by historic workings and gold anomalies throughout the district.  The flagship Lookout Mountain project features a defined section of mineralized material within a large scale structural corridor and numerous high-priority targets to test.  Timberline's Butte Highlands Gold Project is funded to production by its joint venture partner; therefore, Timberline intends to focus its exploration efforts at Staccato's Lookout Mountain project.
