Pershimco Produces Flux Grading Over 1 g/t Gold

ROUYN-NORANDA, CANADA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2009) - PERSHIMCO RESOURCES INC. (TSX VENTURE:PRO)(FRANKFURT:BIZ) ("Pershimco" or the "Company") is pleased to confirm reception of final payment in regards to a first contract with Xstrata's Horne smelter for processing the 2500 tons bulk sample of gold bearing flux coming from the Thibodeau Intrusive Complex (or "TIC") as part of the Tonalite Project realized on its Courville gold property in the Abitibi mining region of Quebec.

The objective of the Tonalite Project is to determine its suitability of the TIC gold bearing material as a flux. The bulk sample contained grades of 1.011 g/t Au and 5.2 g/t Ag. The use of TIC material as a flux could ultimately lead to a long term, large volume agreement quickly turning Pershimco as a producer on its Courville property.

Mr. Alain Bureau, P. Eng., President and CEO of Pershimco comments: "We are happy with the results of this operation in the light of the recent growth of gold and silver prices. The possibility to use this ore as a pyrometallurgical flux is an added value to the project."

Pershimco continues to evaluate its Canadian Courville project. In other business, Pershimco is completing the legal transfer of a 50% interest of its Cusi Mining Camp concessions to its partner DiaBras Exploration Inc. as soon as legal arrangements on these Mexican concessions are completed.

The information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Jean Lafleur, Geo., Qualified Person under National Instrument 43-101.
