East Asia Minerals Verifies Miwah Drill Results via Independent Qualified Third Party

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 24, 2010) - East Asia Minerals Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EAS) announces that an independent third party verification has been completed for diamond drill core collected at the Company's Miwah Gold Project in Aceh Province, Northern Sumatra, Indonesia. The results from this most recent study, completed by an independent consulting firm, have validated the veracity of gold assays reported by East Asia Minerals for drill core sampled throughout the course of exploration at its flagship Miwah Gold Project.

This independent third party validation was conducted for drill holes EMD001 to EMD030 and complies with East Asia's policy of robust QAQC protocols and technical excellence. Although East Asia Minerals undertakes a continuous and robust QAQC program at all of its exploration projects, including independent Qualified Person validations at various times throughout ongoing drill campaigns, the announcement of these independent results for Miwah are designed to put to rest rumblings from some quarters of the industry and investment community.

Findings of the independent third party verification conclude that 1) the core sampling, analytical and QAQC protocols used by East Asia Minerals at Miwah are in line with industry practice and are considered by the independent third party to be in-line with international best practice, and 2) the sampling by the independent third party returned gold values of similar tenor to the values previously reported by East Asia Minerals and confirmed the presence of a well mineralized gold and silver system at Miwah. The independent third party is confident, following their site visit and the results of its sampling, that the general range of gold and silver values reported by East Asia Minerals are representative of the values that can be expected from the Miwah deposit.
