PANAMA

Following the positive results from the Company's carefully planned exploration strategy at its wholly-owned Cerro Quema copper-gold sulfide targets, including the previously announced outstanding deep drilling results (see news release dated June 18, 2013), Pershimco is preparing to mobilize more powerful drill rigs in October to drill 800 meter holes on a group of selected targets. Notably, the recent challenging market conditions have enabled the Company to renegotiate the cost of exploration services on more favourable terms.

CANADA

Osisko Mining Corporation has announced that, as part of its efforts to reduce its exploration costs, it will no longer be conducting exploration on the Courville property. As a result, Pershimco will regain full interest in the gold project. Meanwhile, Pershimco remains comitted to strictly maintaining only minimum exploration expenditures on all Canadian projects.
