Genco Is Pleased to Announce Election of Board of Directors

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Genco Resources Ltd. (TSX:GGC) announces the election of the following seven individuals to serve as directors for the ensuing year: James R. Anderson (Co Chair), Robert C. Gardner (Co Chair), Richard W. Hughes, James M. McDonald, Charles E. Schroeder, III, Brian R.D. Smith, QC, and Lyle Weismantel. The voting results reflect the culmination of a proxy contest which produced a board consisting of both constituents.

Mr. Anderson and Mr. Gardner commented, "This contest resulted in an airing of views with respect to the current status, challenges and opportunities facing our Company. Both sides acknowledge that there were differences and misunderstandings on a variety of matters and the new Board is committed to moving forward with improved communication and cooperation while meeting the highest governance standards."

All Board members are now agreed on the twin priorities of completing the full feasibility study and increased production at La Guitarra. The new Board has unanimously agreed to separate the operations and personnel of Genco and Andover Resources within six months.

Now that the Board has unanimously agreed to resolve these various issues we may now attend to the important task of developing what we judge to be the world class asset at La Guitarra.
