Shares outstanding: 39,230,228

PASS LAKE, ON, May 4 /CNW/ - James R. B. Parres, President & CEO of Jiminex Inc. is pleased to report that visible gold has been encountered in diamond drill Hole No. 3 at the Misehkow River property located in the Pickle Lake gold area of Ontario.  Core samples are being delivered to the Activation Laboratories Ltd. (Actlabs) branch in Thunder Bay, Ontario today for rush gold assaying. Mr. Parres comments "Having visible gold in our Pickle Lake drill core has the JIM team very excited as this is the first time that visible gold has ever been noticed on the Misehkow River property.  We are asking Actlabs to rush the gold analysis on the samples where the visible gold was noted. The results with more details on geology and sample widths will be published as soon as possible".

The visible gold has been noted in at least 8 smoky-grey quartz veins spread across a quartz vein stockwork having a width of 15-20 metres. The stockwork occurs at a depth of approximately 278 metres in Hole 3. Four holes have been completed on the Misehkow River property and Hole No. 5 is currently being drilled. The gold mineralization appears to reflect a typical gold mineralization style occurring in the Pickle Lake-Musselwhite gold region. Once hole 5 is completed, the drill will be moved back to the Hole 3 location to aggressively drill additional holes probing the visible gold mineralized zone.

Shareholders please note that the Jiminex Inc. Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders will be held at 130 King Street West, Suite 1800, Toronto, Ontario M5X1E3, at the hour of 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 12, 2011. As indicated in the Circular, Mr. Edward Ierfino will be resigning from the Jiminex Inc. Board of Directors to pursue new business ventures.  The Jiminex Inc. management would like to thank Mr. Ierfino for his service on the board and to the company, and wish him well on his new endeavours.

Jiminex Inc. was listed as a resource company on the TSX venture exchange in 2009 and is focused on gold exploration in Canada. The Company acquired three high potential gold properties located in three well-known gold camps.  The 100%-owned Misehkow River property is sited in the Pickle Lake gold mining region of Ontario near to the Pickle Crow Project of PC Gold Inc. and in the same general region as the Musselwhite Mine currently being mined by Goldcorp Inc. Misehkow River presents an opportunity to possibly locate more than one gold deposit within a large target area.  The Northern Eagle property is located in the Hemlo gold mining camp, Ontario close to the 22 million ounce Hemlo deposit being mined by Barrick Gold Corp. The property is considered one of the best target areas in which to locate another Hemlo-style gold deposit and Jiminex has earned a 50% interest from Beaufield Resources Inc. The 100% owned Parres and Parres Two properties are located in the Snow Lake copper-zinc and gold mining camp of Manitoba where the major Lalor Lake copper-zinc and gold deposit discovery of HudBay Minerals Inc. is actively being explored and developed.

Allan J. Willy, P. Eng., VP Exploration & Director of Jiminex Inc. is the qualified person responsible for the geotechnical content of the Company's public information.
