Gemini/Silver Shield Makes Third Option Payment on La Cumbre Gold & Silver Property in Mexico

BURLINGTON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 8, 2008) - Gemini Acquisitions Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GQI) (also known as Silver Shield Resources Inc. as part of its RTO and hereafter referred to as "Silver Shield" or "the Company") today reported that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Silver Shield Resources S. A. de C. V., has made the third of four option payments on its La Cumbre Property located in Guerrero state of Mexico. Management is very encouraged with the progress made to date at La Cumbre and view the Property as highly prospective. La Cumbre's main El Condor Vein was sampled in 1989 by the Mexican government agency "Consejo de Recursos Minerales" and reportedly returned average grades of 5.30 g/t gold and 518 g/t silver from 48 samples averaging 1.30 metres in width.

Tim Towers, President and CEO commented, "Silver Shield is taking the first step in Mexico on what we feel is an exciting and prospective property, to secure our position and gain inroads into Mexico. The Company plans to expand its presence in the country with the assistance of Ray Lashbrook, Vice President, Exploration, as well as other contacts in Mexico that the company has established. La Cumbre is the first property of a plan to continue expansion of quality properties in the silver and gold sectors. The Company has a stated objective of acquiring quality silver and gold projects that have the potential to be developed into producing properties."

Terms of the option agreement call for payments (all US dollars) of $10,000 on signing (paid); $10,000 due two months after signing (paid); $20,000 due six months (now paid) after signing; and the final payment of $28,000 due June 30, 2008, the first anniversary of signing. A $1.00 per tonne royalty on ore mined and milled also applies on the Property. An advance royalty of $2,000 per month is enacted on the fifth anniversary of the completion of the option.

The La Cumbre Property is the first asset acquisition that diversifies the Company into the rich silver territories of Mexico, on top of its Canadian assets. The proposed exploration plan at the La Cumbre Concession will be the first modern day exploration ever performed on the Property. The Property consists of two claims "La Cumbre" and "La Cumbre 2" for a total of 4,000 ha, with numerous mineralized showings at surface. The Property has been optioned from Hector Gonzales-Flores a Mexican Mining Engineer who has also been engaged by Silver Shield Resources S.A de C.V. to assist in the exploration program. Mr. Gonzales-Flores knowledge and expertise of the Property and area as well as the local labour will prove invaluable while pursuing this project.

Stephen Mlot, P.Eng, a director of the Company, is the Company's Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
