Drilling Continues and Additional Ground Acquired at Simon Mine Property, Nevada

North Vancouver, BC:  International Millennium Mining Corp. (the “Company” or “IMMC”) is completing the second of two holes to test the main Simon Mine MMI geochemical anomaly and is about to commence a third hole to test a strong Induced Polarization (IP) anomaly located just SW of the main Simon Mine workings in an area previously unexplored by drilling.  The intensity of the IP high suggests the possible presence of sulphide mineralization beneath an area of jasperoid/hematite altered limestone cut by rhyolite dikes.  The Company’s 100% owned Simon Mine Property is located in the Walker Lane Trend, near Mina, Nevada.  Following the recommendations in the June 11, 2009, Report of David Mark, P.Geo, IMMC initiated a minimum 3,000 meter drill program to test certain primary coincident mobile metal ion (MMI) geochemistry and induced polarization (IP) geophysics targets developed from programs carried out by the Company in 2007 and 2008.

Thomas L. Evans, Professional Geologist, California, the qualified person under NI 43-101 responsible for the drilling program, reports the drill program commenced in early February, 2010.  Hole S10-1 was drilled on the North side of the Mammoth Fault to test a down-dip target below the 300 meter level of the Simon Mine where Federal Resources last mined mineralised material.  The hole was collared in a hanging wall of Tertiary, volcanic and intrusive rocks.  S10-1 encountered strongly altered and faulted rhyolite tuff and shallowly emplaced felsic intrusives.  Phyllic alteration consisting of quartz-sericite with pyrite mineralization was common.  The hole was lost at 191 meters when clay gouge and fault breccia sloughed into the hole.

A replacement hole, S10-2, was collared 100 meters east of the original site on March 3, 2010.  The hole encountered volcanic and intrusive phases similar to those in S10-1. Despite difficult drilling conditions, S10-2 reached the Mammoth fault at 314 meters where it entered a footwall of Luning limestone.  Although no significant mineralization was found, the hole is continuing to test deeper levels in the footwall sequence.  Intrusive porphyry dikes have been intersected, and silica alteration and bleaching have increased at the current depth of 543 meters.  The hole is expected to be completed at about 600 meters.

The Company also announces that seven new contiguous lode claims (~55.7 hectares) have been located to cover a molybdenum and copper MMI geochemical anomaly situated on the southwest side of the Simon property.  The new claims are contiguous with the western boundary of the Simon property.  The anomaly is a large bulls-eye type feature located in late Tertiary lake bed sediments of the Esmeralda formation.  Any drilling on this target would test for a concealed copper-molybdenum porphyry beneath these sediments.
 
The Simon Mine is a past lead, zinc, silver, gold and copper producer.  In addition, there are unsubstantiated reports that 50,000 to 100,000 tons of mineralized material, with unknown grade, remain within the mine, but this cannot be confirmed until the underground workings are dewatered.

Stock Options Correction
The Company also wishes to correct its stock options announcements of December 24, 2009 and March 4, 2010, and advise that the grant of three year incentive options to its employees, officers, directors and consultants under terms of its Stock Option Plan, was for the right to purchase 2.81 million shares at $0.10 per share and not 3.2 million or 2.91 million shares at $0.10 per share as previously announced.  The Company has no other stock options in effect.
