Announces Commencement of 2010 Work Program on its Red Mountain Project in the Yukon

May 26, 2010

Acero-Martin Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: AMG; Frankfurt: AMX) (“Acero-Martin” or the “Company”) has received a comprehensive review and interpretation by FPC Geoconsulting of the helicopter magnetic and electromagnetic data which had been accumulated on its Red Mountain property in the Yukon.

Based on the final report and recommendations the Company has retained 2 drills and a team to commence work on the property upon receiving the exploration permits. The company plans to complete 4000 to 6000 metres of drilling to expand the known target to the west and northwest and to depth, and to investigate the heart of a magnetic anomaly centered on the claim block.

A Class III Exploration Permit has been applied for and is currently undergoing the YESAB review. Scheduled completion of permitting is prior to the end of June 2010.

The Company anticipates spending in excess of $2 million on the Red Mountain property this summer.

As part of its overall review of data on the Red Mountain property the Company has recomputed the drill data for Hole DD05-20 (previously reported on August 16, 2005) and wishes to report an expanded interval that returned on a weighted average basis, 0.84 g/t over an interval of 197.88m, versus the previously reported interval of 104.91m averaging 1.07g/t. A 43-101 resource estimate is currently being worked on and should be completed prior to this season’s drill program commencing.

The Company carries an 80% participatory interest subject to a 2% NSR in the Red Mountain property consisting of 52 ICE and JC claim blocks that cover a 1,087 ha contiguous area.. To date, the Company has expended approximately $3 million on this property with the bulk of the work being completed by 2005. Due to depressed gold prices at the time and limited seasonal access the Company shifted its focus away from Red Mountain but with gold prices at current levels and additional activity in the area the property has garnered renewed interest.

The Red Mountain Project, located about 135km east of Dawson City, Yukon, lies within the Tintina Gold Belt, a part of the Yukon-Tanana gold belt extending across central Yukon Territory and the state of Alaska, which contains several large producing and developing properties, and a host of evolving gold prospects. Intense exploration in the Yukon region has been spurred by activity of Underworld Resources, recently acquired by Kinross, south of Dawson City and the Eagle Gold Project, owned by Victoria Gold, 29 km east of Red Mountain and Atac’s discovery north-east of Keno Hill, among others. Activity has also been intensified by the recent delineation of 12 million ounces of gold resources by International Tower Resources Ltd., some fifty miles north of Fairbanks Alaska, and the continued production from Kinross’ large Fort Knox open pit at Fairbanks, averaging 0.45 gm/t at a cash cost of under $450/oz. Both are within this major structural belt. Road improvements during 2009 will assist in the efficient operation and service of the proposed drill programs.
