Sao Luis Mining Secures US$500,000 Financing Commitment

GARDNERVILLE, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2007 -- Sao Luis Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: SAOL) (FRANKFURT: F5G) (www.saolmining.com), a "conflict free" diamond mining and precious metals exploration company, is pleased to announce that it has obtained a US$500,000 commitment from a Swiss investment group headed by Stephan Muller, a recently elected member of its Board of Directors.

The transaction involves the sale of 2,000,000 shares of restricted common stock at a fixed price of $0.25 per share. The shares carry trading restrictions and were therefore sold at a discount to the Company's recent, publicly traded market price. US$300,000 will be funded immediately upon completion of the documents and the additional US$200,000 within 30 days.

"This private placement commitment shows continued investor confidence in our business strategy," says Michael J. Dillon, the Company's President and Chairman. "We are allocating a portion of the funds to retain the public accounting firm of Kabani & Company to perform an audit of the Company's operations and its mining assets in Brazil in connection with its plans to become a fully reporting company under U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) regulations."
