Animas Resources Announces the Drilling Program Has Started at Santa Gertrudis

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 22, 2009) - Animas Resources Ltd. ("Animas" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ANI) is pleased to announce that it has started a 20+ hole drilling program on October 13, 2009 initially focused on testing the main Toro - Gregorio mineralized zone. Other large tonnage potential-type targets as well as several more conceptual-type targets also will be tested during this phase of drilling. The Toro - Gregorio target is considered to be the best of the currently identified sedimentary rock-hosted gold targets.

The Toro - Gregorio target is comprised of a 3+ square kilometer area of moderate/strong surface alteration, favorable host rock lithologies, highly anomalous surface gold mineralization and five past producing, open pit gold mines. This area has never been deeply drill tested by previous workers and up to eleven holes are planned in this area. One of these holes will be drilled below the 2008 Animas' drill hole at Camello which ended in highly anomalous alteration and gold mineralization.
