Summary of 2008 Drilling and Sampling Results from Andean American's Invicta Project, Peru

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - June 10, 2008) - Andean American Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:AAG)(FRANKFURT:AQN)(BVL:AAG) is pleased to provide a summary of drilling and sampling results at the Invicta Project, Peru since January 1, 2008. To date, results have been received for underground sampling of a total of 783 samples and 14,282 metres of surface diamond drilling. A summary of results is presented below. This phase of drilling has concluded but some drill results are pending. The 3400 level Adit has been extended for a total of 1,168 metres in the tunnel and crosscuts.

New zones of similar structure with the potential to be significant sources of gold mineralization have been discovered to both the east and the west of the Atenea Structure. Mineralization remains open at both ends and the system continues to depth. Andean American is continuing exploration and drilling in these areas and will report on the results as assays are received. Over 2.7 kilometres of continuous structure have now been connected over the Dany (900m), Atenea (950m) and Pucamina (850m) Structures.

"We are extremely pleased with our drilling and sampling results to date," states President Andrew Gourlay. "Drill holes such as AE-DDH-08-115 and adit samples from the east wall of Crosscut 3S indicate that there is prime potential to significantly expand on the current resource estimate."

These are drill intersections and true widths have not yet been determined.

The Atenea Structure consists of quartz-cemented hydrothermal breccia with variable amounts of pyrite, chalcopyrite, galena, sphalerite and traces of bornite. The quartz varies from white to grey, and displays acicular crystals, cockade textures and open spaced filling, with rare vugs lined with quartz crystals to 5cm size. The sulphides within the quartz vary from disseminated to massive. The combined structure has been traced for over 2,700 metres of strike length by mapping and diamond drilling, and remains open in both strike directions and to depth.

"We now believe a Mesothermal system continues to depth underneath the Epithermal system. These systems often continue at depth well beyond their length," comments President Andrew Gourlay.

The recently completed drill program, in conjunction with the underground sampling and drilling, is designed to upgrade the current resource estimates of 4,739,500 tonnes grading 2.73 g/t Au, 18.3 g/t Ag and 0.45% Cu in the measured and indicated categories, with an additional 6,088,700 tonnes grading 1.44 g/t Au, 15.7 g/t Ag and 0.53% Cu in the inferred category. Resource estimates are from the NI 43-101 Invicta Technical Report dated July 24, 2007.
