Hidalgo Mining International (HMIT) Discusses Financial Statements for FY 2008

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 11, 2009) - Hidalgo Mining International (http://www.hidalgominingint.com/) (PINKSHEETS: HMIT), an innovative mining company headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., discussed today the Company's Financial Statements for FY 2008 released yesterday.

The unaudited Financial Statements were prepared by Bagell, Josephs, Levine & Company, LLC (www.bagelljosephs.com), a registered PCAOB CPA firm that has gained national recognition as one of the top CPA Firms and is currently ranked 70th in the nation. Bowman's Accounting Report named Bagell, Josephs, Levine & Company one of America's top four fastest growing auditors based on total public companies audited in 2005-2004 and their Public Companies/SEC team has over 60 years of combined experience.

At the end of FY 2008, the Company had $1,645,855 in Total Assets, almost exclusively equipment, and $875,601 in Total Liabilities.

At the end of 2008, the Company reduced their liabilities by approximately $3.5 million. This debt was associated with the acquisition of major equipment and was eliminated through friendly negotiations and the issuance of Preferred Stock.

The Company generated no income for FY 2008 and had a Net Loss of $1,243,768. This was almost exclusively attributable to the costs associated with the preparation of the Guinea Property for production. The Net Loss per Share was posted as zero due to the exact loss per share being less than half a penny and general accounting standards only going out 2 decimal points.

Commenting on the Company's results for FY 2008, President and CEO Mark D. Klok stated, "We are very pleased to announce nearly twice as much in Assets as Liabilities at this early stage in our growth. I believe we have made significant strides towards becoming a producing Jr. Mining company as well as a current and transparent issuer. Furthermore, I anticipate being able to announce a significant event in the near future that could dramatically affect the Company and our shareholders in a very positive manner in the coming weeks."
