MGM Mineral Resources Announces Recent Corporate Activities

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 25, 2006 -- Metro Gold Mines Mineral Resources Inc. (PINKSHEETS: MGMX) is a growing gold mining company engaged in the acquisition and development of production properties in South and Central America.

Although it has been some time since a recent news release, MGM Mineral Resources has been maintaining all short term and long term goals. A report was drafted recently by company C.E.O. Mr. Jairo Giraldo regarding the recent progress, acquisitions, and ongoing work at the mines.

During the week of October 8, 2006, Mr. Giraldo met with Manager of Operations, Mr. Fabian Llanos and reviewed the various issues pertaining to the Company. These included production, exploration, and communications. They are very content that all these issues are being addressed.

PRODUCTION -- Las Malvinas is the Company's main focus and is in current production. This includes all lab work, processing and extraction stages. Tunnels are in place, they are clean and very accessible, as well as in the process of transporting updated equipment to the site for more advanced extraction.

DEVELOPMENT -- La Esperanza remains the Company's cornerstone and is currently in talks with external international geologists in order to ratify all findings and geological numbers. The Company wants to confirm their findings and move this project into the high production stages.

COMMUNICATIONS -- The Company wants to improve their communications with the shareholders and has been attaining this goal in several ways. They are currently training a bilingual receptionist to which all shareholder calls and emails will be directed. As such, shareholders will be able to get in touch with someone in the South American or North American areas.

"As many may be aware, we have opened our doors to various shareholders lately in order to confirm the veracity of our Company," said Jairo Giraldo, C.E.O. of MGM Mineral Resources. "We have met with some of our shareholders and have been keeping in touch to the best of our current abilities, as well as have allowed pictures to be taken, including out in Segovia, at the shareholders own risk. We did notice that our shareholders have been posting various pictures of our operations and although the pictures are not officially sanctioned pictures of MGM Mineral Resources, they do reflect our Company and can add to shareholder confidence once they see the reality of our projects."

The Company will release additional pictures shortly, including parts of the operation that were not explored by some shareholders.

"We are anxious to release any upcoming technical information pertaining to Las Malvinas," concludes Jairo Giraldo. "Production and shareholder confidence has been our main focus over the past month and we will continue to push towards a bright future."
