About Animas Resources

Animas Resources, a North American mineral resource company focused on acquisition and discovery in Latin America, has re-consolidated the Santa Theresa District's Santa Gertrudis gold deposits and prospects within a 125 square mile land holding.

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 and produced 564,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 2.13 grams per tonne. 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, previously owned by an Australian company, 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).
