Silvermex Resources Obtains Interim Order for Plan of Arrangement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - May 30, 2012) - Silvermex Resources Inc. ("Silvermex") (TSX:SLX) is pleased to announce that it has obtained an interim order from the Supreme Court of British Columbia authorizing, among other things, the holding of the Company's annual general and special meeting of securityholders (the "Meeting") and matters relating to the conduct of such Meeting. At the Meeting, Silvermex shareholders, option holders and warrant holders, (collectively "Silvermex Securityholders") will be asked, among other things, to consider and, if deemed advisable, to pass a special resolution approving the plan of arrangement (the "Arrangement"), announced on April 3, 2012, between First Majestic Silver Corp. ("First Majestic") and Silvermex. Meeting materials, including the management information circular, Notice of Annual General and Special Meeting and other related documents in connection to the Arrangement will be mailed to Silvermex Securityholders shortly.

Silvermex will hold the Meeting at Suite 1210 - 885 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 3E8, on Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. (Vancouver time). If the special resolution approving the Arrangement is passed by the requisite vote of Silvermex Securityholders and all other conditions to the Arrangement are satisfied or waived, First Majestic will, at the effective time of the Arrangement, acquire all of the outstanding Silvermex common shares and Silvermex will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Majestic. The Arrangement is subject to, among other things, the approval of the special resolution by at least 66 2/3% of the votes cast by Silvermex shareholders, warrant holders and option holders voting together as a single class represented either in person or by proxy at the Meeting. Assuming the special resolution is approved at the Meeting, Silvermex anticipates returning to court on or about June 28, 2012 to seek a final order to implement the Arrangement with the transaction closing shortly thereafter. The board of directors of Silvermex unanimously recommends that Silvermex shareholders, option holders and warrant holders vote FOR the resolution approving the Arrangement.
