Hidalgo Mining (HMIT) Completes Over $1 Million in Financing to Begin Production

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 8, 2008) - Hidalgo Mining International (PINKSHEETS: HMIT), an innovative mining company headquartered in Port Washington, NY, announced today that the company has successfully completed over $US one million dollars in financing to begin the purchase and mobilization of equipment and personnel to begin gold mining production in West Africa.

Mark Daniel Klok, President of HMIT, stated: "We received incredibly favorable terms and have up to four years to satisfy our obligations under the terms of this financing agreement. Completion of this funding has allowed the company to hire the necessary employees as well as to purchase the equipment necessary for the Guinea Project. The initial steps have already been put into place to start on the roadwork to access the property in Guinea, which requires the use of excavators and bulldozers to clear access so tractor-trailers with the rest of the equipment can get to the property and we anticipate being able to actually start production by the end of February/beginning of March."

Klok went on to state: "With the completion of this financing, we feel we are right on track to generate north of $US 6 million dollars in revenue in our first year of production. This would obviously not include any production occurring as a result of any of the additional acquisitions we anticipate closing in the near future."
