Apoquindo Minerals Announces Exercise of Warrants at Cdn$0.75

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 9, 2009) - Apoquindo Minerals Inc. (TSX VENTURE:AQM)(BVLAC:AQM) is pleased to announce that 1,057,500 warrants were exercised at a price of $0.75 providing the company with proceeds of Cdn$793,125; the remaining 1,598,825 warrants are now exercisable at a price of Cdn$1 and will expire October 31, 2010.

"The exercise of these warrants demonstrates the continued strong shareholder support for the company´s projects and management.

The private placement that gave rise to these warrants was done at the bottom of the financial crisis in October 2008 when shareholders chose to support the company.

It was during this financial crisis that, Juan Villarzu, the Company's Chairman, and former President of Codelco, the world´s largest copper company, foresaw copper reaching US$3.00 in 2010. With future copper fundamentals so strong, management seized the moment to build its project portfolio and is now focused on increasing the Company´s share value through the development of Zafranal, the Copper-Gold porphyry project in Southern Peru, and through its interest in the Antakena Copper Oxide Joint Venture project in Northern Chile." stated Stephanie Ashton, Chief Financial Officer of the Company.
