Paramax Resources Ltd. Provides Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 20, 2011) - Paramax Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PXM) ("Paramax or the Corporation") is pleased to announce that it has reached a financial resolution with its joint venture partner Bridge Resources Corp. ("Bridge") in relation to previous capital expenditures on the Idaho project. The resolution, which covers all costs to June 30, 2011 results in a refund owing to Paramax of $250,000. As a result of this settlement, Paramax's net working capital deficit as stated in its financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2011 moves to a positive $234,114. The settlement removes $1,213,790 in payables that were previously recorded by Paramax.

Going forward, the Western Idaho project will now be overseen by a newly reorganized joint operating committee. This committee will have two participants from each of Paramax and Bridge. Paramax will be represented by Mike Smith and Dan Roulston. Bridge will be represented by Nick Clayton and Reg Lowndes. The new Bridge committee members were necessary due to the recent senior management changes at Bridge. One of the first mandates of the newly formed joint operating committee will be a detailed review of the Field Development plan for the Willow and Hamilton areas. This review will include detailed analysis of cost estimates and development plans.

As part of the settlement agreement, Paramax has relinquished the exploration acreage outside of the Willow and Hamilton prospect areas to Bridge. The purpose is to allow Paramax to concentrate its resources on the development of these two significant project areas. Paramax now has a 50% interest covering an AMI of 33,280 acres between the two areas.

The future development of the Western Idaho project is awaiting final approval of the meter station site and the well stimulation program. Hearings with the State and County regulatory bodies in Idaho are continuing and once a final approval is received a detailed timeline and cost structure will be confirmed.
