Bling Capital Corp.(the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BLI.P) announces the termination of the previously announced proposed qualifying transaction, the appointment of Kevin V. Nephin as new President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation and a proposed private placement of up to $600,000.

Termination of a proposed Qualifying Transaction
The proposed qualifying transaction as previously announced by the Corporation's press release dated September 8, 2009, pursuant to which the Corporation intended to acquire from Copper Canyon Resources Ltd. a 100% interest in the Abo Gold (Harrison Gold) Properties, in British Columbia (the "Acquisition") has been terminated. The completion of the Acquisition was subject to a number of condition precedents which have not been complied with. As a result the Corporation is not in a position to proceed any further with respect to the Acquisition.

The Corporation has currently undertaken discussions with a number of other third parties related to several other possible proposed qualifying transactions.

Appointment of President and Chief Executive Officer
Kevin V. Nephin has been appointed as the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation replacing Stuart W. Peterson effective immediately. Mr. Nephin has over 25 years experience in the investment industry. His experience includes 13 years as an Investment Advisor, primarily focused on mining and exploration companies. He was a Director and Vice-President of Parklane Mines and Minerals and Founder, Director and Executive Vice-President of Micrologix Biotech. Mr. Nephin is currently a director of the Corporation. Stuart W. Peterson will continue in his role as Chief Financial Officer, Secretary and a director of the Corporation.

Private Placement
The Corporation proposes to complete a non-brokered private placement of up to 6,000,000 common shares of the Corporation at a proposed issue price of $0.10 per common share for gross proceeds of up to $600,000 (the "Private Placement"). The closing of the Private Placement is expected to occur on or about November 30, 2009. The proceeds of the Private Placement will be used to finance the ongoing costs associated with identifying, evaluating and completing a potential qualifying transaction. The Private Placement is subject to regulatory body approval.

The Corporation is currently a capital pool company pursuant to the policies of the Exchange. The Corporation will continue to identify and evaluate business opportunities for the Corporation in order to complete its qualifying transaction.
