TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 31, 2007) - Anaconda Mining Inc. ("Anaconda" or the "Company") (TSX:ANX)(FRANKFURT:GJ2) is please to report its results for the 8 months ended May 31, 2007. All amounts are in Canadian dollars unless stated otherwise.

On April 18, 2007, Anaconda completed an acquisition of Colorado Minerals Inc. ("Colorado") by issuing 19,701,560 common shares of the Company to the shareholders of Colorado in exchange for all the issued and outstanding shares of Colorado. As a result of the issuance, the former shareholders of Colorado owned approximately 50.8% of the then outstanding common shares of Anaconda thereby affecting a reverse takeover ("RTO") of Anaconda. Accordingly, for accounting purposes Colorado is deemed to be the acquirer of Anaconda, although Anaconda is the legal parent company and the reporting issuer.



- As at May 31, 2007, the Company had assets of $23.4 million.

- No operating revenues during the 8-months ended May 31, 2007 as the Company continues to focus on exploration activities with regard to its Canadian and Chilean project portfolio.

- Consolidated loss for the period was $371,000. The loss included expenditures of $416,000 offset by interest income of $45,000. This compares with expenditures of $236,000 offset by interest income of $4,000, for 2005.

- $13,225,000 raised by way of an equity financing in April 2006.

- Carmen

Negotiations with Industrias Penoles S. A de C.V., ("Penoles") for a joint venture on the Carmen copper-gold project near Copiapo, Chile are continuing. Additional time has been required by Penoles and Anaconda pending receipt of all property title documentation from the Land Registry office. With these documents now in hand the Definitive Agreement governing the exploration and earn-in commitment between the companies can now be finalized. Anaconda expects to execute the definitive agreement with Penoles shortly.

- Restauradora

Anaconda has recently completed a 10-hole reconnaissance drilling program totalling 2,726 m at the Restauradora copper-gold project located south of Copiapo, Chile. Of the 10 holes completed, one hole, RREA 7-05 intersected 6 m grading 3.49% copper, 1.49 grams gold per tonne and 0.057% molybdenum from 244 m - 250 m. This hole was designed to test for parallel mineralized structures near the footwall of the Restauradora vein and was successful in intersecting chalcopyrite, bornite and chalcocite mineralization in a quartz vein.

Three other holes drilled to test a broad IP anomaly south of the former producing Restauradora mine intersected disseminated pyrite in diorite and quartz sericite altered rocks.

Hole RREA 7-04, designed to test for extensions of the Restauradora mineralization to the east, failed to reach its target depth due to water problems.

Five other holes designed to test a variety of targets on the property failed to intersect any meaningful mineralization.

Anaconda is currently reviewing the results of this limited reconnaissance program and will provide a more detailed update on the Restauradora project once a final report is completed.
