Acero-Martin alters board; awaits Pinaya permit

October 4, 2005
Acero-Martin Exploration Inc. (the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update on the exploration program at its Pinaya Copper-Gold Porphyry Project in Southern Peru. Since acquiring the project in May 2004, the Company to date has completed a total of 20 diamond drill holes for a total of 4079 meters. In total 2991 samples have been taken from drill core and 2689 samples have been taken from trenches and surface outcrops. The Company also completed an extensive geophysical program consisting of induced polarization and magnetic surveys. Currently all data is being complied and the company has contracted an independent Geologist to prepare a technical summary on the project following the guidelines outlined in National Instrument 43-101. The report will summarize all work done to date and provide recommendations for the next phase of exploration. The report is expected by the end of October.

The Company has recently completed a socio-economic and environmental study of the area affected by the project as part of the requirements for obtaining the next stage exploration permit from the Peruvian government. This study was carried out by Vector Engineering's Lima office and the report was submitted to the Ministry of Mines in Lima as well as to regional ministry offices in Arequipa and Puno during July. Included in the Vector report were results from surface and underground water samples taken by hydrogeology contractor Ground Water International, also based in Lima. In early September, the company received formal comments and questions from the Ministry of Mines related to its permit application. The Company has now complied with and addressed all questions and comments and has re-submitted the permit. The permit includes an application for over 150 new drill holes. Approval of the permit is expected shortly and the Company anticipates the drilling program to commence before month end.

The Company remains committed to maintaining good relations with the members of the Pinaya community located approximately ten kilometers east of the project area. As part of this commitment the Company hired Lima based Social Capital Group to carry out a stakeholder mapping study of the area. This process included carrying out several interviews with local and regional interest groups, both governmental and non governmental, to obtain feedback on the project and mining activity in general. The Company is pleased with the high level of participation and interest showed by the residents of Pinaya and is looking forward to developing further its social commitment program. Interviews carried out by Social Capital Group revealed that community residents generally favor the development of the project and the Company is committed to increasing its social involvement in the community.

Jeff Reeder, P.Geo, and James McCrea, P.Geo, are the qualified persons under National Instrument 43-101 for the Pinaya project, and are supervising the quality-control and quality-assurance program.

Mr. Hall is a seasoned financial market professional with 24 years experience as a broker, senior executive officer and founder of a number of successful brokerage firms.
