Animas Resources Increases Financing to $2 Million

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Animas Resources Ltd. ("Animas" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:ANI) has increased the non-brokered private placement announced on May 15, 2009 by $500,000 to $2 million due to additional demand for the Units and the financing is fully subscribed. The private placement will now consist of a total of 5,715,000 Units at $0.35 per Unit for gross proceeds of $2,000,250. These additional funds will allow the Company to expand the upcoming drill program at the Santa Gertrudis gold project and the many targets currently being identified by the geological team in this large district.

Each Unit is comprised of one common share and one-half of one non-transferable warrant. Each whole warrant entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of 24 months at a price of $0.60 per common share during the first 12 months from closing and $0.75 per common share during the final 12 months. Animas has agreed to pay a finders fee of 7.5% or $11,550 to one party on $154,000 of the placement. The remainder of the offering was arranged by the Company and no finders fees will be paid on it. The financing will be subject to customary regulatory approval and all securities issued will be subject to a four-month hold period.

Gregory E. McKelvey, President & CEO of Animas, commented, "A large portion of the financing went to a well connected Mexican businessman who is committed to the long-term development of the Santa Teresa Mining District. The remaining portion of the financing was subscribed by a small group of industry professionals that have supported, and continue to support, the Company's developments."

Animas expects to announce the details of the 2009 drilling program shortly. The geological database is being updated and the targets are being ranked to prioritize them for this program.
