Gemini Explorations, Inc. Reports Symbol Change and Forward Share Split of Two for One to Combat Illegal Naked Short Interest Position

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - July 11, 2007) - Gemini Explorations, Inc. ("Gemini") (OTCBB: GXPI) reports today that after reviewing the trading activity of Gemini with its financial advisors, the company has forward split the common shares of the company on a two for one basis and the trading symbol has been changed from GMXP to GXPI effective today, July 11, 2007. Gemini has taken this action in order to clear the illegal naked short position that it believes has been artificially depressing the company's share price. The post split issued and outstanding number of shares will increase from 30 million shares to 60 million shares.

On June 7, 2007 Gemini reported "that after reviewing the company's stock with an independent analyst, there is an illegal naked short interest position of approximately 3.5 to 4 million shares in GMXP." This is in very sharp contrast to the report showing the short interest to be 23,972 shares as of May 31, 2007 and 42,643 shares as of June 30, 2007.

NASD Rule 3360 has been expanded to require NASD member firms to report their short positions on all over-the-counter ("OTC") equity securities to NASD Regulation, on a monthly basis. Once the short position reports are received, the short interest is then compiled for each OTC security.

Firms are required to report their short positions as of settlement on the 15th of provided each month, or the preceding business day if the 15th is not a business day. The reports must be filed by the second business day after the reporting settlement date. The short interest data is compiled and for publication on the 8th business day after the reporting settlement date.

Michael Hill, President of Gemini Explorations, Inc., states, "We have worked diligently with a third party advisor to bring attention to our company and to correct this serious problem. In late April, 2007, the company's stock fell abruptly, cutting the price per share in half. The selling pressure has continued and we believe there is a very large illegal short interest position in GXPI. This is a major concern for our company and our shareholders who are of utmost importance to us. These actions have been taken to allow the company to completely focus on its core business of developing world class gold deposits in Colombia. The company will update developments on the La Planada Gold Project and the Los Chorros Gold Mine in the upcoming days.
