("Javelin"), a corporate development and investor relations firm that provides the tools necessary for junior resource companies to enhance value and increase access to capital markets. Under the Agreement, Javelin will help to develop a comprehensive marketing and investor communications program to reacquaint the market to the significant upside potential of AXMIN. As part of its mandate, Javelin will be introducing AXMIN to analysts, brokers, money managers and other financial professionals. Javelin will not provide market making activities for AXMIN.

The Agreement is for a one year term, renewable by mutual agreement of both parties thereafter.

President and CEO of AXMIN, Mr. George Roach, comments, "We are excited to have Javelin as our partner in a corporate development capacity. AXMIN fits well with Javelin's criteria of unlocking shareholder value in resource companies with high quality assets that are significantly undervalued. Recently, AXMIN reached a major milestone at its Passendro Gold Project. With the revalidation of the feasibility study nearing completion and the recent acceleration of its debt financing, AXMIN is now moving into a much more active phase of development. As result, we recognize the importance of broadening our communications program to further enhance shareholder value."
