Mala Noche Receives Letter from Alamos Gold

06/18/2010

Vancouver, British Columbia – June 18, 2010 –

THIS PRESS RELEASE IS NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION IN THE UNITED STATES OR TO U.S. NEWS AGENCIES

Mala Noche Resources Corp. (“Mala Noche” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:MLA) announced today that it has received a letter from Alamos Gold Inc. (“Alamos”) alleging that, in respect of Mala Noche’s proposed acquisition of the San Dimas mines, Mr. Eduardo Luna, a director of the Company and until June 7, 2010 a director of Alamos, breached his fiduciary duties to Alamos and that Mala Noche participated in and facilitated those breaches. Alamos indicated in the letter that they are of the view that Mr. Luna and Mala Noche are liable to account to Alamos for any profits or benefits derived from the San Dimas mines and that the mines should be held in trust for Alamos. The letter did not suggest that San Dimas was ever an actual acquisition target for Alamos.

The Company is of the view that the allegations of Alamos have no basis in fact or law and is discussing with counsel the remedies available to Mala Noche.

Wade Nesmith, Executive Chairman of Mala Noche, stated “We are disappointed to receive, without warning, this letter from Alamos. Alamos appears to be under a misapprehension about the facts of how the opportunity to acquire San Dimas came to Mala Noche. As CEO of Mala Noche, I approached the owner of the San Dimas mines about the prospect of Mala Noche buying the mines. It was my idea, pursued by me on behalf of Mala Noche and at no time did Mr. Luna have the opportunity to pursue the transaction with any other company. The discussions and negotiations were long and complex, taking over 2 years to complete and culminating in our announcement of a letter agreement on June 2, 2010.”

The San Dimas mines are located on the border of Durango and Sinaloa states in Mexico. San Dimas produced 113,000 ounces of gold and 5.1 million ounces of silver in 2009. The agreement is subject to a number of conditions, including the completion of an appropriate financing by Mala Noche. Mala Noche filed a Preliminary Prospectus on June 7, 2010.
