Paramount Gold to Acquire an 80% Interest in over 6,000 Hectares Surrounding Their San Miguel Project in Mexico.

CHIHUAHUA, Mexico -- Paramount Gold Mining Corp. (OTC:PGDP) (FWB:P6G) (WKN:A0HGKQ) announced today that they have signed a letter of intent setting out the terms of an option to acquire an 80% interest in over 6,000 hectares of property from Garibaldi Resources Inc. (TSX VENTURE:GGI). The additional property surrounds Paramount's San Miguel project and adjoins Paramount's Andrea concession to the east of San Miguel.

Paramount's Manager of Exploration in Mexico, Bill Reed, commented: "I am very pleased that we have come to terms on an option to acquire this strategic piece of property that fills the gap in our land position between our San Miguel and Andrea concessions. More importantly, it surrounds much of our San Miguel project where I believe our drill program is proving a substantial precious metal discovery. I am looking forward to working with Garibaldi to explore the potential of these new concessions."

The terms of the formal agreement to be entered into within 60 days provide that Paramount issue Garibaldi 100,000 restricted shares and spend US $300,000 within 18 months to earn a 50% interest, and issue an additional 100,000 shares with a further exploration commitment of US $400,000 within 36 months to earn a 70% interest. Paramount may increase its interest to 80% by making a payment to Garibaldi of US $500,000 or an equivalent amount of Paramount common shares within 48 months from the date of this agreement.
