    TSXV:ALT

    TORONTO, June 30 /CNW/ - Alturas Minerals Corp. (the "Company")
(TSX-V: ALT) is pleased to announce that the Company's common shares have been
listed and commenced trading on the Bolsa de Valores de Lima (Lima Stock
Exchange) ("BVL") on June 25, 2008. Alturas's listing on the BVL is being
sponsored by Credibolsa, Peru's largest brokerage firm and the trading arm of
Banco de Credito, Peru's largest bank. The listing, in conjunction with the
existing TSX-V quote of the Company's shares, is expected to provide
additional demand for and liquidity in the Company's shares.
    Miguel Cardozo, President & CEO, commented "Alturas has reached an
important milestone with the listing of the company on Peru's BVL, one of the
world's best performing stock exchanges in 2007. Mining shares make up
approximately 70% percent of the exchange listings and the sector returned
34.5% percent on investments in 2007, measured in US Dollars. The success of
the BVL reflects the outstanding performance of Peru's strongly
mining-oriented economy, which achieved a growth rate of 9% in 2007 and is
expected to maintain a similar economic development in the foreseeable future.
Local investors in this emerging regional economic power now have the
opportunity to participate in this growth as new shareholders in Alturas".
