Southridge Enterprises Addresses Shareholders With Corporate Update

DALLAS, Jan. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Southridge Enterprises Inc. (OTC
Markets:SRGE) ("Southridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce today
that Southridge Minerals, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, has issued a
corporate update for shareholders of the Company to address questions arising
from a recently announced joint partnership with respect to Cinco Minas.
Southridge would like to inform shareholders that the joint partnership is no
longer valid, and the Company is pursuing other joint partnership
opportunities at this time. Although there have been a number of questions
that have arisen from the events that followed our joint partnership
announcement, the Company maintains that it has signed agreements and
communications to verify all of its claims. The Company is currently working
with its legal representation and has no further comment at this time.

"Obviously, we are disappointed with recent events, and it has forced us to
re-evaluate some of our goals as a company, and where our focus needs to be
directed. The fact remains that Southridge maintains several world-class
mining assets in Mexico, notably Cinco Minas and Gran Cabrera, that has
neither changed nor has it been effected," said Michael Davies, the President
and CEO of Southridge Enterprises. "Our goal moving forward is to be focused
on developing our considerable mining assets, while we continue to negotiate
with other suitable joint venture partners on expanding these assets.
Shareholders of Southridge own a very attractive and valuable precious metals
mining asset, in a politically stable region that is favorable towards new
mining initiatives. Taking this into consideration, it is our assertion that
the Company is well positioned for both continued growth and development, and
is an attractive acquisition or joint venture partnership target for a senior
mining company."

Southridge announced the strategic focus of the Company is to:

  oContinue to explore opportunities with potential joint venture partners
    who have expressed interest in both Cinco Minas and Gran Cabrera.
  oIncrease the profitability of the Company by completing the expansion
    plans for the Cinco Minas mill. In addition, the Company plans to evaluate
    and implement solutions at the Mill to increase efficiency.
  oExpand current gold & silver assets in the Jalisco region with the
    continued development of Cinco Minas and Gran Cabrera, to increase the
    current mineral resource. In addition, explore opportunities to expand the
    Company's current footprint in the region through acquisition and claim
  oAmend the management team, with specific focus on expertise to facilitate
    developing the Jalisco properties and completing the mill expansion plans.

Lastly, due to recent circumstances and the holiday season, the Company would
like to clarify that the December cash dividend has not been completed and has
been postponed. Those shareholders that did not receive the dividend yet will
be added to the distribution in the Company's upcoming quarterly cash
