Escondoro Postpones Its Initials Public Offering

QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Escondoro Resources Ltd. - ("Escondoro" or the "Corporation") announces that, in light of the Ecuador's constitutional assembly's decision to suspend all mining exploration in the country for a period of 180 days until a new mining law is drafted, it decided to postpone its initial public offering. Therefore, the Corporation has discontinued the placement of its units under the amended and restated prospectus dated February 29, 2008. Also, an application was filed with each of the securities regulatory authorities in each of the provinces of Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia to have its reporting issuer status revoked.

A draft of the revised mining law is expected shortly from the Ecuador's Ministry of Mines after which the Corporation will evaluate the impact on its holdings.

The Corporation is currently evaluating exploration and mining projects of merit located in other South American countries.
