International Millennium and Diamond Exploration Inc. Sign Formal Agreement on Cobalt, Ontario Diamond Prospect

NORTH VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2009) - International Millennium Mining Corp. ("IMMC" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IMI)(FRANKFURT:L9J) and Diamond Exploration Inc. ("DIX") announce, as a follow-up to their respective January 26 and 27, 2009 news releases, that they have signed a formal Option and Joint Venture Agreement whereby DIX is granted the sole and exclusive right and option to earn fifty-one percent (51%) interest, subject to a one percent (1%) net smelter return royalty, in thirty-six (36) mining claims (250 claim units) comprising IMMC's Cobalt Area Property in Ontario. Under terms of the agreement, which is subject to TSX Venture Exchange acceptance, DIX may earn a 51% interest in the property by expending $1,000,000 over a period of up to ten (10) years at an average rate of not less than $100,000 per year and by issuing five hundred thousand (500,000) shares to IMMC. Following DIX's acquisition of an interest in the property, further exploration and development of the project will be the subject of a joint venture between the parties.

Exploration by IMMC of the property, located just south of the town of North Cobalt, has focused to date on only two of the more than 20 known lamprophyre zones. Airborne magnetic surveys have defined several prospective targets with kimberlitic signatures that warrant evaluation. Additionally, none of the kimberlite indicator mineral anomalies has been followed up.

The DIX technical team believes that diamond stability field conditions exist within the mantle root beneath the Cobalt area. The presence of diamond-bearing lamprophyres confirms that the mantle is fertile for diamonds in this region. Follow up work will focus on assessment of priority kimberlite targets and additional evaluation of the most prospective of the lamprophyre breccias.
