ZNext Mining Increases Authorized Shares in Anticipation of XYZ Gold Mill Processing Plants and Development of Additional Properties

MANILA, PHILIPPINES--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - ZNext Mining Corporation, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: ZNXT) (OTC Preferred: ZNXTP) (XETRA: R1z.De) (FRANKFURT: R1z.F) announced that after the first quarterly Board Meeting, the company's board of directors has resolved to increase the Company's Common shares to 40 million, concurrently increasing its authorized Common shares as it looks toward development of the XYZ Masbate Gold and the Company's Canadian holdings. Near-term projects include the installation of a 100 metric tons of gold mill plant with copper floatation device, installation of on-site metallurgical laboratory, construction of access road and building of the personnel housing and the explorations of Wolf Properties in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

The Company intends to fabricate and install mini rod mills for the XYZ, so that the production of the XYZ Masbate Gold may begin during the second half of 2008. A copper flotation system installed to the existing Gango Gold Rush mill plant will increase gold and other precious metals recovery. Likewise, a 10 metric ton mini gold mill plant is being installed in Binasan, thus escalating gold recoveries. Additionally, the Company's Canadian exploration team is now prepared to begin in earnest Phase I Explorations on the Wolf Properties in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.

The Company is engaging the services of a qualified U.S. CPA, PCAOB registered, with the concurrence of its legal counsel, to perform an audit of ZNext's 2006 & 2007 financial statements.

The Board also resolved the appointment of Manolo Tecson and Randolf Villanueva to serve as acting co-CEOs for ZNXT while Jason Piamonte is on a leave of absence. The Company hired an Independent Geologist Consultant, while mining engineers and technical laborers (skilled and unskilled) are hired as temporary employees to work on each project. ZNext's board also resolved to begin conducting its investor relations services in-house effective June 1, 2008, utilizing the services of Jordan Richard Assoc. LLC through May 31, 2008.

"In recognition of our investors' and shareholders' patience, we wish to show our gratitude to them while we commence work at the XYZ Masbate Gold, re-open our Gango Gold Rush in Bukidnon, the Binasan Gold Project, and undertake Phase I exploration at the Wolf Properties in British Columbia, Canada," said Chairman Tecson.

Additionally, the Company announced that it disavows the claims of Operation Reach Out-USA (ORO-USA, domiciled in the State of Nebraska) regarding ORO-USA's role in the alleviation of poverty among the Binasan Indigenous People of the Philippines. Many claims made on ORO-USA's web site, especially with regard to alleged humanitarian contributions to the Philippines, are being challenged as to the facts, truthful disclosure and various legalities. ORO-USA's non-profit status and its 501(c)(3) (tax-exempt) designation with the IRS is also under scrutiny. ZNext Mining and Pearl Asian Mining wish to make known their challenge of numerous claims made and affiliations both stated and implied by ORO-USA. Neither Company has ever endorsed ORO-USA and the companies caution anyone who would consider contributing to the so-called "non-profit humanitarian operation" conducted by Jeffrey Alan Bosaw and his wife Jennifer Bosaw.
