Hidalgo Mining International (HMIT): Shipment of Equipment Arrives and Clears Customs

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 25, 2008) - Hidalgo Mining International (PINKSHEETS: HMIT), an innovative mining company headquartered in Port Washington, N.Y., announced today that the first shipment of mining equipment arrived in Guinea and cleared customs, which positions the company at the cusp of beginning production in West Africa.

Mark Daniel Klok, President of HMIT, stated, "The first shipment of Hidalgo Mining International's equipment has arrived and cleared customs in Guinea, West Africa. Our personnel have recently rented crane trucks, loaded, and transported all the items up to our equipment staging location area in Siguiri. Among the items that have arrived are: Two 8'' suction Dredges, a 50 yard per hour Alaskan Goldfields processing plant, an excavator, and numerous other miscellaneous items. In addition to this, the 8-D Bull Dozer needed to expedite roadwork on location has recently been rented. This will allow the 50-ton lowboy trailer the necessary access to the mine that is required for the projects long-term sustainability. The dredging equipment is currently being unloaded and assembled by our staff to be commissioned into operation shortly. Our main mining manager, Mr. Gregory Daniel Klok, has personally been training and preparing our local personnel for the start of operations. Furthermore, the second shipment of equipment is ready to arrive in West Africa in the next two weeks. Currently we are right on track to implement the next phase of 50-yard per hour production."
