(the "Company" or "Pershimco")(TSX VENTURE:PRO)(FRANKFURT:BIZ) is pleased to announce additional assay results from the 2011 exploration campaign at the Company's Cerro Quema Gold-Copper Project (the "Project") in Panama. The new assay results at the Quemita Target yielded 100 meters at 1.02 g/t Gold Equivalent, 64 meters at 2.05 g/t gold Equivalent and 47 meters at 1.43 g/t Gold Equivalent.

The new assay results are from the Quemita Target located 3 kilometers east of the LaPava Target along three North-South sections perpendicular to the Cerro Quema Gold-Copper Trend (refer to the table below for complete interval assays). They include Section 552975 (the first section) at the western end of the Quemita Target for holes PRH-11001, PRH-11002 + PDH-11502 and PRH-11003 + PDH-11503; Section 553050, 75 meters east of the first section for PRH-1104, PRH-11005, PRH-11006 + PDH-11506 & PRH-11007; and Section 553100, 125 meters east of the first section for PDH-11008.

Notes:
The current Gold Equivalent grades were calculated using the last 200 days average prices of US $1,436 / oz Gold, US $33 / oz Silver and US $4.20 / lb Copper, and were not adjusted for metallurgical recoveries as these remain uncertain.

Alain Bureau, P. Eng., President & CEO stated "While our exploration focus is on the LaPava Target area we are very pleased with these results on Quemita which could allow Pershimco to add significant gold ounces to the project. The drilling also highlighted several higher gold grades at surface which again is very positive from an open-pit scenario along the Cerro Quema Trend."

Pershimco presently has two drill rigs fan-drilling with 3 angled holes per set-up along the northern segment of the LaPava Target in order to rapidly bring the mineralization towards NI 43-101 compliant mineral resources. All access roads and drill site platforms have been prepared for the drill rigs along the LaPava Target's northern slope.

Quality Assurance / Quality Control ("QA/QC")

Drill cores from diamond and RC drill holes are transported by Pershimco technical personnel from the drill sites to the Cerro Quema Core Shack. There, qualified geologists and technicians log, sample tag and half-split the core in 1 m lengths using a saw. The individual sampled intervals of half-split core are then inserted in tagged plastic bag, and sent to the Activation Laboratories (Actlabs) sample preparation facilities in Panama. Individual samples are inventoried by Actlabs personnels, dried, finely crushed to 70% at <2 mm, then pulverized to 85% at <75 μm, and riffle-split to 150 grams. There is 1 Standard and 1 Duplicate at every 5 meters and 1 Blank at every second 5 meters interval. Samples are then inserted in sealed 5-gallon plastic pails then shipped by courier to the Activation Laboratories main facilities in Ancaster (Ontario, Canada) for assaying using the Muti-element ICP Method and the Pyro-analysis Method with Atomic Absorption Finish for Gold, Silver and Copper. Re-assays are done on samples with results greater than to 2.5 g/t Gold and greater than 10,000 ppm Copper.

The information contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Mr. Jean Lafleur, M. Sc., P. Geo., Vice-President Exploration and Director, a Qualified Person under NI 43-101 rules and standards.
