Alphamin Closes Activities in Mexico

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2012) - Alphamin Resources Corp. (AFM.V) ("Alphamin" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has transferred the "Aurora" concessions in the area of Coyuca de Catalan, Guerrero State, to Cigma Metals Corporation ("Cigma").

In March 2010 the Company signed an agreement with Cigma regarding the sale and transfer by the Company of a 100% interest in the "Aurora" concessions in consideration for US$150,000 and 1,000,000 common shares of Cigma. In addition, the Company retained a 1.5% Net Smelter Returns Royalty on production from the concessions.

At that time the Aurora Concessions included one granted title ("Aurora II", Title 235480 with 1,946 hectares) together with an application for additional exploration grounds. Eventually this application was granted in two new titles: "Aurora", Title 238662 with 89,558 hectares and "Aurora Fraccion I", Title 238663 with 54 hectares. The Company transferred these two titles to Cigma, so that the commitments undertaken in the March 2010 Agreement are totally fulfilled.

In view that the three remaining properties in Mexico were part of the discontinued "Violin" project, the Board decided to include in the transfer to Cigma "La Huerta", Title 231940, "La Pastoria", Title 232204 and Lupita, Title 232725, in exchange for USD2,900.

Aurora and Violin were the two projects that Alphamin owned in Mexico. It has transferred the first and discontinued the second. Now the Company does not have any activities in that country.
