Animas Arranges $600,000 Private Placement

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - Animas Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ANI) is pleased to announce that it has arranged a private placement of 10,000,000 units (the "Units") at a price of $0.06 per Unit to raise gross proceeds of $600,000.

The funds will be used to complete the transaction with Dore King Min SA de CV ("DKM") as previously announced on February 25, 2013, and for working capital. Under the Letter of Intent with DKM, DKM has agreed to work towards re-establishing Animas' Santa Gertrudis Gold Project as a producing gold mine and providing all the funding to do so. If successful, the cash flow from the gold production operations will be split on a 50/50 basis between Animas and DKM.

DKM and Animas will also be working towards building a good relationship with the Ejido in the area to show them the benefits of working closely with Animas and DKM. The Ejido is responsible for surface access in Mexico and while Animas has a current agreement for surface access, the team will be asking for assistance from the Ejido to improve the access conditions, expand it, and, in return, ensure that the Ejido are fairly compensated.

Each Unit will be comprised of one common share and a common share purchase warrant. Each warrant will be exercisable into one common share for a three year period at $0.10 per common share. Upon completion of the offering, Animas will have 69,130,884 common shares issued and outstanding. The investors in this offering will include previous strategic supporters of Animas and its Directors.

No feasibility study, pre-feasibility study or preliminary economic assessment has been completed for the Santa Gertrudis Gold Project and there is no certainty such an operation will be economically viable. Only a National Instrument 43-101 ("NI 43-101") compliant mineral resource estimate has been completed for the Santa Gertrudis project.
