Maxy Completes Acquisition of 15 Gold, Silver and Base Metal Exploration Properties in Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 10, 2008) - Maxy Gold Corp. (TSX VENTURE:MXD) ("Maxy" or "the Company") advises that it has closed the acquisition, announced March 17, 2008, of a 100% interest in 15 gold and base metal mineral exploration properties totaling 139,070 hectares in central and southern Peru.

Andre Gauthier, President and CEO of Maxy, said,

"We are extremely pleased with this acquisition of a high quality exploration property package. Our team in Peru has already mobilized to start field exploration, which is slated to include drilling on the Chocos and Condoroma properties near the end of August."

Peru Property Portfolio

All 15 Properties are located in Central and Southern Peru in well defined prospective mineralization belts. Ten properties are high sulphidation gold and silver targets, 1 a low sulphidation gold and silver target and 4 are base metal targets.

Six of the properties have had sufficient positive work on them to be near drill stage, being the Chocos (which contains the Candel target), Condoroma, Sumaq, Corina, Picha, and Canta properties. Maxy has started a full field evaluation of these properties in order to identify priority drilling targets as soon as possible. The other properties are at grass roots stage, staked on data base information targeting high sulphidation gold - silver epithermal systems, and will also be assessed in the upcoming program.

Significant results previously obtained by the operator, Minera del Suroeste S.A.C., include:

- On Chocos: 179 samples where taken from 4 veins. 13 samples returned assay values from 5% to 13% zinc (Zn); 17 samples assayed from 5% to 20% lead (Pb), and 4 samples assayed from 30 grams per tonne (g/t) silver (Ag) to 261 g/t Ag.

- On Condoroma, a first pass sampling program returned copper values to 1.29%, gold (Au) values to 1.79 g/t and anomalous molybdenum values.

- On Picha, 156 samples have been taken and returned both copper (Cu) and Ag anomalies (up to 12% Cu and 169 g/t Ag).

- On Canta, 73 samples where collected one sample returned 2.23 g/t Au and up to 3,220 g/t Ag, 0.254% Cu, 3.96% Pb and up to 2.97% Zn.

- On the Sami property, wide drill intersections of low grade gold mineralization have been reported by Penoles.

- On the Sumaq property, 90 samples gave up to 0.898 grams per tonne gold. Other reported values range between 0.1 up to 8.98 g/t Au.

- On the Corina property, 67 samples returned values ranging between 0.1 up to 6.67 g/t Au.

NI 43-101 reports on the Chocos and Condoroma properties are nearing completion. Maxy will start field work as soon as possible and has already secured a technical operating team. Maxy is planning to bring Chocos and Condoroma properties to drill stage at the end of August 2008.

Consideration for the properties, paid to the vendor, Southwestern Resources Corp. ("Southwestern"), is US $200,000 and the issuance of 1,000,000 shares, which will bring Southwestern's holding to 3,909,600 shares, or 11.3% of Maxy's issued capital. Southwestern will retain a 2% net smelter royalty payable on any commercial production from the Chocos and Condoroma properties.
