Metalline Receives an Extension From the NYSE Amex

Coeur d'Alene, Idaho - Metalline Mining Company (NYSE Amex: MMG) has reported that on July 13, 2009 the NYSE Amex LLC (formerly American Stock Exchange (the "Exchange")) notified Metalline that Metalline has been granted an extension to regain compliance with the continued listing standards set forth in the NYSE Amex LLC Company Guide (the "Company Guide"). As such, and subject to certain conditions, Metalline's common stock will continue to be listed on the Exchange during the extension period.

Metalline submitted a plan of compliance to the Exchange on June 1, 2009 addressing how it intends to regain compliance with certain of the Exchange's continued listing standards. Although Metalline is not currently in compliance with Sections 1003(a)(iv) and 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide, based on information contained in Metalline's plan of compliance the Exchange has informed Metalline that it has until November 2, 2009 to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iv) of the Company Guide and until November 1, 2010 to regain compliance with Section 1003(a)(iii) of the Company Guide. Metalline's failure to meet these time frames could result in Metalline's common stock being delisted from the Exchange. There is no assurance that Metalline will be able to successfully implement its plan of compliance with the time frames prescribed by the Exchange, although it intends to vigorously pursue that course of action.
