Maxim Announces Change in Participating Interest in the High Island Block

Vancouver, B.C. - Maxim Resources Inc. (“Maxim” or the “Company”) announces that effective as of December 1, 2009, the Company’s interest in and to the 115 B-1 well and the High Island Block oil and gas leases in the Western Gulf of Mexico has been changed to an 8% working interest and a 4% net revenue interest. The Company agreed to reduce its working interest in settlement of the Company’s failure to make certain payments required by the applicable operating agreement. Prior to this change, the Company had a 20% working interest and a 10% net revenue interest. In addition, as the Company owes approximately US$770,000 in fees in connection with its interest in the High Island Block, the proceeds payable to the Company for its net revenue interest will be reduced in order to repay such amount owing.

On behalf of the Board
