In 2009, the BVL index has increased by over 100% and has consistently been one of the most profitable exchanges in the world. Mining shares which make up 61 per cent of BVL exchange listings continue to lead the charge on account of rebounding commodities prices.

Intercapital is one of three chartered BVL sponsors, and the only private sponsorship entity. Intercapital's Canada office is headed by Managing Partner Luis Zapata. Mr. Zapata has years of experience in the Canadian capital markets having previously held positions at both a major Canadian brokerage house and a boutique private equity firm. Envisioned as a nexus between Canadian juniors and the Latin American capital markets, Intercapital Canada provides their clients with an all-inclusive range of financial advisory services.

The listing, in conjunction with the existing TSX-V quote of the Company's shares, is expected to provide additional demand for and liquidity in the Company's shares. "We are confident that the BVL listing will give the Company a lot of visibility in the South American financial markets and attract institutional and retail clients." says President Guy Bedard.

"We are still bullish on Plexmar's properties and future in Peru, and this BVL listing is part of a continuing effort to push forward with the company's strategic business plan.
