About the Paso Yobai Gold Project:

The Company is operating the Independencia Mine Pilot Plant on the Company's 99%-owned mining concession, part of the Company's larger Paso Yobai Gold Project. The objective of the pilot plant is to facilitate resource evaluation through bulk-sampling along the Discovery Trend, which is characterised by coarse gold mineralization extending from surface to greater than 100m depth. The proceeds of the bulk-sampling program also subsidise corporate administration, exploration and property expenses in Paraguay.

The Company's ongoing gold exploration work is now focused on the Company's 100%-owned exploration licences also located at Paso Yobai. These properties contain the 14.8 km X-Mile Trend, identified as a major axis of mineralization, and a selection of off-trend targets which may be related to sets of oblique structures. A high-resolution CSAMT geophysical survey program is underway over these target areas in order to develop drill targets below the surface gold showings.

About the Company:

Latin American Minerals Inc. is a Canadian mineral exploration company whose core Paso Yobai project includes the Company's Independencia Mine and satellite targets in a new large gold district.

The Company has identified Paraguay as a highly prospective region for mineral exploration, and continues to explore its multiple Paraguayan mineral claims for gold, diamonds, REE, niobium and phosphates.
