Genco Waives Proxy Deadline

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2008) - Genco Resources Ltd. ("Genco") (TSX:GGC) today announced that it will extend the proxy cut-off time for its annual general meeting of shareholders to 11:00 a.m. (Vancouver time) on Thursday, June 26, 2008, the date of the scheduled meeting. As certain shareholders have indicated a delay in receiving their proxy materials, Genco has determined that it would be in the best interests of shareholders to extend the proxy cut-off to allow all shareholders the opportunity to vote their shares.

Genco recommends that shareholders vote the WHITE proxy in favour of management's slate of directors and its long-term plan for Genco.
