Animas Updates on Ejido Election and Santa Gertrudis

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 12, 2013) - Animas Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ANI) is pleased to announce that during July the Seis de Enero Ejido at Santa Gertrudis elected a new group of senior Ejido officers. Animas is committed to working with the new officers to ensure that the Santa Gertrudis Gold Project will advance and that the ejido members will benefit as the project moves forward. In accordance with this plan, the Company plans to make the 2013 rental payment for the heap leach area in the very near future. All previous payments under the existing surface access agreement have been made to the Ejido and those payments that Animas had previously paid into court have been released upon the Ejido signing court documents indicating that the current surface access agreement is in good standing with the Ejido.

Animas' longer term plan is to bring the project back into production, and towards this end, the Company will continue working with the Ejido towards finalizing a new surface agreement that will allow for future gold mining operations.

In line with the Company's plans to bring the project back into production, Animas has been talking to several significant mining companies about possible joint venture production funding scenarios. To date, multiple project tours have been given, confidentiality agreements signed, and data transferred and reviewed. These discussions are at an early stage, and Animas also continues to look at options to internally move the project towards production.

John R. Wilson, President and CEO commented that "The Ejido relations have much improved and the pirate miner has disappeared but there is still work to be done to improve community relations and advance the project at a much faster rate than over the past year, and Animas is committed to doing just that."
