Surface Sample Results Confirm Gold, Silver and Copper Mineralization on Delcer Buttes

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 16, 2009) - Delta Mining and Exploration Corp. (PINKSHEETS: DMXC) is pleased to announce that it has received a final report and recommendation from Mr. Alan Wright, RPG, which includes the analysis of the 11 surface rock samples he took from the Delcer Buttes Property.

As previously mentioned, Mr. Wright was retained by Delta Mining and Exploration to assist the company in completing its due diligence on the Delcer Buttes Property in Elko County Nevada. After confirming that the claims did belong to Mr. Garry Carlson and Amigo Inc, Mr. Wright sent 11 surface samples to the ALS Chemex Laboratory in Reno Nevada.

Pursuant to the results he received, Mr. Wright was able to state in his conclusions that "the Delcer Buttes Property hosts classic copper/gold skarn mineralization on the mining claims." Furthermore, he recommended that "the area be acquired, geologically mapped, comprehensively sampled and a ground magnetic survey conducted to define the skarn zones and assist in geological interpretation."

One of the pleasant surprises of this sample was the variety of metals discovered. Besides gold, silver and copper were more prevalent then originally anticipated and Mr. Wright mentioned that the "presence of Tungsten suggests a higher temperature setting perhaps similar to the Osgood Mountains in Humboldt County, where the Getchell mine is located." Getchell mine is a gold mine owned by Barrick Gold and Newmont Mining, and is located in Winnemucca, Nevada.

Delta's Chief Executive Officer Mr. Alex Livak stated that "with these findings and Mr. Wrights recommendation, we will move quickly to finalize the land agreement with Amigo Inc, and get to work on the Delcer Buttes Property. This is exactly what we anticipated when we signed the Letter of Intent and now look forward to completing this process."

Once an agreement is in place, the report from ALS Chemex will be posted on the Delta Mining website.
