Laredo Resources Corp. Contracts Excavation Company

VIRGINIA CITY, Mont., May 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Laredo Resources Corp., (OTCQB:LRDR) ("Laredo") is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Moen Excavation LLC ("Moen") for excavation work, road building, shipping, and trucking of 'dumps'. In the last decade Moen has successfully provided its services to a number of mining properties throughout Southern Montana.

On May 1, 2013 Laredo announced a $2.5 million private placement offering for the exploration and development of the 'pending acquisition' of Pony Mountain Gold ("Pony"). Although the 'pending acquisition' is in the process of being formalized, Laredo considers the immediate execution of the Moen contract to be an integral step for the development of the Pony, which is located in the historic Mineral Hills District in the state of Montana, USA. The property consists of several previously mined, underground, hard-rock vein systems and contains 'dumps' created by 'drifted tunnels'.
