Anglo Swiss Appoints Jari Paakki to CEO & David Constable to Chairman

August 18, 2011

VANCOUVER, Aug. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ – Anglo Swiss Resources Inc. (TSXV:ASW) (OTCQX:ASWRF) (“Anglo Swiss” or “the Company”) today announced that it has appointed
Mr. Jari Paakki, MSc, PGeo, to the position of Chief Executive Officer,
subject to regulatory approval and that interim CEO, Mr. David
Constable has accepted the appointment as Chairman of the Board. Both
appointments are effective immediately.

Mr. Paakki, is a Professional Geologist with 20 years of experience in
gold and base metal exploration covering a broad range of deposit
types, environments and exploration methodologies. Jari also has
extensive junior resource company management experience and a
demonstrated ability to create a strong technical team, manage staff
and contractors, obtain permits, manage budgets, and negotiate
JV/Option Agreements. Jari has also successfully liaised with various
government agencies and indigenous groups during his career. Further,
he has a track record of successfully advancing projects at all levels
and a history of exploration discoveries.

Jari began his career with Falconbridge Limited in nickel-copper and VMS
exploration, and subsequently spent twelve years with Teck
Exploration/Teck Cominco Limited in increasingly senior roles, which
culminated in the position of Senior Geologist. During his time with
Teck, he was involved in numerous projects including the supervision of
regional and near-mine exploration around the Hemlo gold deposit, which
resulted in the discovery of new gold prospects, as well as successful
project generation initiatives throughout eastern Canada targeting
primarily gold, VMS, and nickel-copper-PGE deposits. Most recently, he
has held positions of VP Exploration and Project Development, notably
for Blackstone Ventures where he developed and implemented exploration
activities in Norway and Sweden. These programs ranged from grassroots
projects, where he outlined an unexplored VMS copper-zinc-gold belt and
discovered significant new Fe Oxide-Copper-Gold (IOCG) targets in the
world-class Kiruna District, through to resource definition level
projects, which resulted in an NI43-101 compliant resource estimate
totaling over 300 million pounds of combined nickel and copper. Mr.
Paakki obtained his BSc and MSc (Geology) from Laurentian University in
Sudbury.

In welcoming Mr. Paakki, Mr. Constable, Chairman, stated that, “We are
delighted that Jari has joined the Anglo Swiss team. His exploration
expertise and broad experience in both gold and base metal exploration
is ideally suited to Anglo-Swiss’ current project portfolio. Jari has
the right combination of skills and a demonstrated ability to unlock
value in exploration and development projects and is a natural fit to
advance the company and fulfill its objectives.  Jari is a key addition
to the evolving Anglo Swiss management team and he will focus his
energies on advancing the Company’s high grade Kenville Gold Mine
Project and initiating exploration on the Ring of Fire Lansdowne House
Project.”

Jari Paakki, CEO, noted that, “I am very pleased to be joining the Anglo
Swiss team at this time. Both of its key projects, the advanced
Kenville Gold Mine Project and the Ring of Fire Lansdowne House
Ni-Cu-PGE Project have tremendous development and new discovery
potential. I look forward to working closely with our team and board to
realize both projects’ inherent and full value for our shareholders.”
