Pershimco Not to Be Affected by Repeal of Amendments

ROUYN-NORANDA, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - PERSHIMCO RESOURCES INC. (the "Corporation" or "Pershimco") (TSX VENTURE:PRO) (FRANKFURT:BIZ) positively comments that recent amendments made to the Mineral Resources Code of Panama will be repealed by the Panamanian legislature.

According to government statements, the National Assembly will be formally requested to revoke Law No. 8 of Febuary 11, 2011, which amended the Mineral Resources Code of 1963. The focus of the Law No. 8 amendments was to allow foreign sovereign funds to invest in Panamanian resources and restrict exploration in the Indigenous areas.

The Corporation announces that the proposed revocation of Law No. 8 will, in no way shape or form, reflect negatively upon the operations of the Corporation. Cerro Quema is a fully permited project located in the Azuero Peninsula far from all Indigenous communities. Pershimco has built a very strong relationship with the surrounding communities which are positively looking forward to the development of the Cerro Quema Project.
