IMA Outlines Merger and Acquisition Objectives

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2007) - IMA Exploration Inc. ("IMA" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:IMR)(AMEX:IMR)(FRANKFURT:IMT)(WKN 884971) is pleased to give an update to its October 18, 2007 announcement regarding the ongoing review of new mineral projects. To date the Company has been reviewing numerous project submissions regarding property acquisitions and joint ventures. This process has been undertaken under the direction of IMA's Management, including Dr. Greg Myers, P.Geo, who has joined IMA specifically with the task of property review and acquisitions.

The Company is reviewing opportunities with several other companies that have projects that meet IMA's business criteria. These companies, in Management's view, control very attractive gold and silver assets. IMA's objective is to acquire 15 to 25 properties and build a Company that contains several million ounces of gold or equivalent with substantial funds for continued exploration, and maintain a share structure that can achieve a rapid growth in shareholder value.

The process is focused on companies or projects with either a defined mineral reserve, or an advanced stage exploration property. These projects must also have the potential for significant expansion through continued exploration and located in politically stable environments.

IMA's objective is to once again be regarded as an industry leader in the field of mineral exploration and a premier investment choice. The Company is undertaking this process in conjunction with its financial advisors (Canaccord Adams) along with other technical and business professionals in an effort to expedite the implementation of this business model.

ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD
