Acero-Martin Announces Update On Pinaya Drilling Program

July 23, 2008

Acero-Martin Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: ASD; Frankfurt: AMX) (“Acero-Martin” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that it has completed the previously announced phase one of its 2008 diamond drilling program on its 100% owned Pinaya Gold-Copper Project in southern Peru. 

A total of 5,588 meters (18,333 feet) was drilled in eleven holes to expand upon the copper-gold deposit outlined by previous drilling and to test a large undrilled geophysical anomaly to the east of the main mineralized body.  The drill core samples have been submitted to the lab and the assay results will be reported once all of the results have been received.

The first eight holes, PDH-150 to 158, were all wide 100 to 200 meter step out holes drilled at the North Western Porphyry Zone to increase the projects overall resource base. For hole PDH-159, a deep drilling rig was brought to the site.  The hole was drilled at the North Western Porphyry Zone to a depth of 800 meters and bottomed in mineralization.  It was the first hole ever drilled to test the depth potential of the deposit beyond 550 meters.  The final hole, PDH-160, was drilled at the Los Vientos Zone, a recently discovered target located 1 kilometer to the southeast of the main deposit with a strong geophysical signature and trenching highlights of 2.0 g/t gold over 6.7 meters, including 10.7 g/t gold over 1.2 meters (trench PTR-152).

The core samples were sent to SGS Laboratories in Lima Peru for analysis.  The analytical results will be reported on receipt thereof and will be used to guide further exploration in 2008.
