(TSX VENTURE:ANI) ("Animas" or the "Company") announces that the Company has agreed to complete a $1.5 million financing consisting of 2.5 million Units. The additional funds will be used to provide working capital for the Company's Santa Gertrudis property and to help ensure that Animas continues to be in a strong financial position.

Each Unit will be priced at $0.60 and consists of one common share and one half of one common share purchase warrant.

All securities are subject to a four-month hold from the date of issuance and require the TSX Venture Exchange's approval before issuance.

Gregory E. McKelvey, President, stated that, "We are pleased that the subscribers to this financing, who committed to the financing several weeks ago, are existing principle shareholders. Their support for our longer term objectives and program gives Animas considerable strength to complete and follow up our 2009 drilling program. To have a small group of our long term investors increase their positions is exciting and important to our success."
