Animas Terminates Golden Arrow Option & Provides Project Updates

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 21, 2011) - Animas Resources Ltd (TSX VENTURE:ANI) ("Animas") has terminated the Mining Option Agreement for the Golden Arrow property in Nye County, Nevada effective March 11, 2011. Animas completed a detailed review of the geology, geophysics, geochemistry, and drilling results, and, determined that the remaining potential at the Golden Arrow property does not meet Animas' business criteria for new discovery.

Animas tested certain areas of the project for gold mineralization in the fall of 2010. Other areas of the project may still be prospective for expansion of the known resources and new discoveries at Golden Arrow, but Animas has determined that they do not meet Animas' size criteria. As such, the Company terminated its Mining Option Agreement on the Golden Arrow property dated March 30, 2010 with Nevada Sunrise Gold Corp. ("Nevada Sunrise") and Intor Resources Corporation. 

Project Updates

Animas is continuing with the Kinsley Mountain earn-in joint venture with Nevada Sunrise and is planning for an early spring program of selective follow-up soil and rock sampling looking for evidence of leakage from favorable host rocks and environments that are capped by less reactive overlaying dolomite units. The extensive geochemical data at Kinsley Mountain is being reprocessed in light of evolving ideas on the style of gold mineralization in eastern Nevada.

Animas is also continuing to evaluate options for the El Tigre molybdenum discovery at Santa Gertrudis and has allowed site visits by qualified parties to review the gold resources and near surface potential at Santa Gertrudis.

The Ariel prospect in Sonora, Mexico is also under review by a qualified third party. Animas is also currently reviewing certain specific quality precious metal prospects in Mexico.

Animas's team is focused on making valuable mineral discoveries through detailed analytical work which leads to new interpretations and ideas before drill testing targets, and the team continues to review projects with the potential for significant valuable mineral deposits.
