    About Pinguino

    Argentex's Pinguino property is located in Argentina's Patagonia region,
within the Deseado Massif of Santa Cruz province. The 2006 discovery of
silver-indium-zinc-lead-gold mineralization at Pinguino marked a major
exploration milestone for the company. This was the first discovery of its
kind in the region, unique in that it contains both silver-gold and
indium-enriched base-metal mineralization. This mineralization is contained in
multiple zones that remain open-ended along strike and to depth. Since 2006,
exploration of base-metal-rich targets has expanded beyond discoveries at
Marta Centro and Yvonne and now encompasses 15 drill-tested veins from more
than 35 veins mapped on the property to date. Argentex has drilled a total of
269 holes at Pinguino for a total of 30,000+ meters (98,000 feet).
    Following receipt of all remaining analytical results and interpretation,
Argentex anticipates completing its first-ever National Instrument
43-101-compliant resource calculation for Pinguino by mid 2009.
    Indium, a significant component of Argentex's polymetallic discovery at
Pinguino, is a high-value metal used in flat-panel (LCD, plasma) displays, and
in leading-edge thin-film solar cell technology.
    Pinguino is easily accessible, situated approximately 400 meters (1,312
feet) above sea level in low-relief topography. An existing system of
all-weather roads provides year-round access to the property.


    Argentex Mining Corporation is a junior mining exploration company with
significant holdings in the Patagonia region of Argentina. It holds an
undivided 100% interest in the mineral rights to the Pinguino property. In
total, the company owns 100% mineral rights to more than 40 properties with
