Hidalgo Mining International (HMIT) Announces the Ratification of New Subsidiary in Haiti

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 12, 2008) - Hidalgo Mining International (PINKSHEETS: HMIT), an innovative mining company headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., announced the ratification of its new Haitian Subsidiary, Hidalgo Mining Haiti, S.A.

Mark Daniel Klok, President of HMIT, stated: "The Company has now received confirmation of the final ratification of our new Haitian subsidiary, Hidalgo Mining Haiti, S.A. Mr. O'Donnell Maximin, one of the board members of our new Haitian Subsidiary, recently met with the honorable President René Garcia Préval. During that meeting it was confirmed that Hidalgo Mining will move forward to complete the negotiations of the final convention on the targeted properties, which management feels will eventually become the first ever commercially producing mining operation in Haitian history. Over the past two years, I have visited Haiti numerous times and have taken a personal interest in setting out to accomplish an aggressive plan to assist Haiti in its goals for economic development and expansion in the mining exploration arena. The Company has now started the process of negotiations and will issue the final convention on the projects with the assistance of Mr. Daniel Dorsainvil, the Haitian Finance Minister, Mr. Frantz Verrela, T.P.T.C. Minister, and Mr. Dieuseul Anglade, General Director of the mining office. After meeting with these officials, it was made clear that the Company has an overwhelming level of support. I look forward to Hidalgo Mining leading the way towards economic growth and stability in this sector. I believe that our new projects targeted in Haiti will ultimately play a key role in enhancing Hidalgo's future bottom line and our expansion plans for 2009."

Klok went on to state: "We have received the green light to enter negotiations on the final convention and I plan to return to Haiti within the coming weeks. This, combined with our existing projects in Guinea, would increase our portfolio of projects and Hidalgo's overall potential and further exemplifies our continuation of actively and aggressively pursuing other projects; all with near term production potential. I would like to continue to thank all of our shareholders for their continued support in our long-term efforts in building a world-class junior mining company."
