About Animas Resources

Animas Resources, a North American mineral resource company focused on acquisition and discovery in Latin America, has re-consolidated the Santa Teresa District's Santa Gertrudis gold deposits and prospects within a 125 square mile land holding. The Company also has an option to acquire the Shirley exploration concession in the Bacanuchi area of Northern Mexico.

The Santa Gertrudis Gold Project (the "SG Property"), located 180 km north of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico, was discovered by Phelps Dodge ("PD") in 1986 and advanced to open-pit, heap-leach production in 1991. It produced 564,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 2.13 grams per tonne from a mine commissioned to start with 1.2 million ounces. Animas Resources has re-consolidated the area which will allow for a district-wide exploration program. Other mineral properties that are part of the SG Property package include the relatively high-grade Amelia Mine and recently staked ground to the west, northwest and southeast of the SG Project's historic workings. The Company will own directly, or have options to earn-in on, a combined holding of approximately 32,600 hectares in the SG Property (125 square miles).

The Shirley concession located in the Bacanuchi area in northern Sonora, Mexico covers a highly prospective color anomaly likely caused by hydrothermal alteration and oxidization of sulfide minerals exposed to surface weathering.
