About Constitution Mining Corp.

Our goal is to locate large-scale, commercially viable gold deposits and continuously increase the amount of gold underlying each of our outstanding shares. We're interested primarily in geographical areas that are home to several significant proven gold deposits, including highly prospective districts likely to hold further large deposits.

Our first and most active project is in the Gold Sands region of Peru, where we hold options on 382 square kilometers (147.5 square miles) of mining property, the largest such block in the district.

The Gold Sands of Peru were laid down by eons of alluvial erosion. For millions of years, the waters of the Santiago and the Marañón rivers have been carving their way through the gold-rich mountain canyons of the Andes, carrying off vast amounts of gold and depositing much of the treasure in loose gravels and sands - Gold Sands - in the area the Company now controls.

Results from test holes drilled a decade ago indicated a potential presence of significant alluvial gold. The Company is now engaged in a program of pitting and test-mining with the intention to confirm and extend those earlier results and to gather further data for determining the feasibility of large-scale mining of this vast resource.

The implementation of these programs will require the company to secure additional financing.
