Animas Resources Stakes an Additional 10,770 Hectares

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Animas Resources (TSX VENTURE:ANI) is pleased to announce the staking of an additional 10,770 hectares (41.59 square miles) to the west and southwest of the main Santa Gertrudis gold deposits within the Santa Teresa Mining District. These concessions will add to the 172.64 square miles of the Santa Teresa district now controlled by the Company.

Animas Resources filed for the new concession when the old claim covering the west and southwest area of the known gold occurrences was recently declared available by the government. This area is mostly post mineral cover along broader extensions of the known mineralization in the central part of the district. Preliminary reviews of the recently completed geophysical data over the gravel cover give reason to believe the area may well hold potential for additional mineralization. As a result, an additional 10,770 hectares of mineral concessions have been staked and the paper work filed with the Mexican government.

"We are excited to have the mineral rights to explore in this area where so many of our targeting criteria show indications of untested potential. Animas Resources has been patiently waiting for the Mexican government to make these concessions available," said John R Wilson, VP Exploration.
