MGM Mineral Resources to Hold Additional Meetings in Colombia

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 28, 2006 -- Metro Gold Mines Mineral Resources Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGMX) is a growing gold mining company engaged in the acquisition and development of production properties in South and Central America.

Several weeks ago, the Company held a week of corporate meetings in Medellin, Colombia, during which time they were able to acquire various mines and retain technical experts in order to expand operations.

"The recent meetings were a great success," said Jairo Giraldo, C.E.O. of MGM Mineral Resources. "The meetings caused a major stir within the local communities and country. We have been appearing in local news, been attracting various potential investors and continue having ongoing discussions with many potential producing mines. Our Company finds the need to continue corporate meetings with various private and government organizations. We have invited our President Mr. Lamb, to join us in completing and directing the various projects."

Based on the Company's recent success, MGM Mineral Resources will be holding additional corporate meetings throughout Colombia from August 29, 2006 to September 2, 2006.

"This will be a perfect opportunity for our Company to finalize several negotiations as well as concentrating on a plan of action for the most recent acquisitions," said Jairo Giraldo, C.E.O. "The Las Malvinas Mine will be our main focus as we must implement all possible technical and geological teams to this producing property by the first week of September. Our goals of turning our Company from small scale to large scale production over the next twelve months may have just changed very drastically. Our target is to have a high gold yielding operation within the next three months."
