(PresseBox) - Ximen Mining Corp. (TSX.v: XIM) (FRA: 1XMA) (OTCQB: XXMMF) (the ?Company? or ?Ximen?) is pleased to provide an update on its Amelia Gold Mine project near Mt. Baldy in southern British Columbia.

Prospecting and mapping of the Amelia Gold property has started, with the aim of generating new targets for trenching and drilling that will be used for permitting for drilling later this season.

There is even a possibility of finding lost gold bars! (see ?Lost Bonanzas of Western Canada?, Garnet Basque, ed., 2006).

The claim group is easily accessible by a network of paved and all-weather gravel roads. The area has exceptional infrastructure available to enhance the rapid development of mineral deposits, including natural gas pipelines and high-voltage hydroelectric transmission lines that cross the property.

The Amelia Gold Property has a long history of mining and exploration dating back to the late 1800?s. The general area, originally known as Camp McKinney, is host to fifteen known polymetallic and precious metal quartz vein, skarn and placer mineral occurrences on the property. The Cariboo-Amelia produced 124,452 tonnes ore, of which 112,254 tonnes was milled on-site for recovery of 81,602 ounces of gold, 32,439 ounces of silver, 113,302 pounds of lead and 198,140 pounds of zinc. The average recovered gold grade was 24.68 grams per tonne gold.

2002 - 2003 Biogeochemical bark surveys were done south and east of the Cariboo-Amelia Mine encompassing the eastern extension of the Minnie-Ha-Ha vein. Anomalies were generated and tested by trenching.

Geologically, the Amelia Gold Property is underlain by interbedded Carboniferous to Permian age Anarchist Group metasediments including calcareous and argillaceous quartzite, greywacke, limestone and locally micaceous quartzite and calcareous biotite schist with minor associated metavolcanics. An ultramafic lens is also exposed nearby. Granite and granodiorite of the Middle Jurassic age Nelson intrusions have intruded the Anarchist Group to the west and south as small stocks and plugs. n the area.

The Cariboo-Amelia mineral deposit system is defined by a number of different gold-bearing quartz veins that are scattered throughout the property and nearby claims. In general, the ore deposit strikes east-west with sub-vertical to steep southerly dips. The mineralized system has a complex deformational history with a number of different generations of extensional block-faults that cut and offset the vein.
