About Michigan Gold Mining Investments, Inc.

Michigan Gold Mining Investments, Inc. is an American junior mineral exploration company presently in the process of developing mineral assets in North and South America who currently retains a one hundred percent (100%) title to a Platinum/Palladium prospect in Northern Ontario, named the 'Deadmoose Lake' property.

Michigan Gold also holds an option on the Anita Mine in Peru. This mine is expected to have workable deposits of precious and industrial metals. Michigan Gold is now in the process of defining these potential deposits.

Michigan Gold is committed to the accumulation and development of unhedged precious metal deposit sites in both North and South America.

The company is of the opinion that the bull market in metals is a trend that will continue over a generation. Notwithstanding, the current low levels in Global Inventory in most metals and, most importantly, longer term strategic considerations originating from high-growth oriented economies in China, India and other Eastern nations has placed extreme pressure on pricing in the metals markets. This factor, coupled with the weakness of the US Dollar due to the USA's large budget and current account deficits may support historically high dollar prices in metals for years to come.

Major metals miners have hedged most producing properties and cannot strongly benefit from rising price trends over the near term. This places junior miners in a very advantageous position. As properties are proven and production is ascertained to be feasible, the ability of Michigan Gold Mining Investments to profit from these historically high metals prices should come to fruition.

Michigan Gold Investments Inc. (trading symbol MGGV) is listed on the OTC market and has commenced the process of becoming a full reporting US company.
