Constitution Mining Prepares To Ramp Up Drilling Capacity

CMIN Orders 2 Additional Banka Drills

LIMA, PERU--(Marketwire - March 31, 2010) - Constitution Mining Corp. (OTCBB:CMIN) reports that in preparation for a comprehensive Phase II drill campaign, which is currently being architected with the objective of defining measureable gold resources within well-defined regions, CMIN has ordered the construction of two additional Banka drills from Peru-based Daniel Drilling SAC. Additionally, the two new drills will be motorized and the current Banka drill on site is being equipped with similar technology that will sharply increase drilling capacity.

Constitution Mining's CEO, Dr. Michael Stocker stated, "During the past 18 months while our team of leading alluvial experts spot drilled various regions of our Gold Sands project, they utilized various drilling and processing methods. Where relevant, drill core was processed and analyzed against larger baseline bulk samples that were also taken from the same drill sites. During this process we discovered that the Banka drills are highly effective, particularly in analyzing the top layer of our Gold Sands project, which the drills are effectively able to penetrate to depths of up to 12 meters (40 feet)."

"Armed with a high degree of confidence in the effectiveness and reliability of using Banka drills, we decided to increase our drilling capacity by approximately 500% with these new motorized Banka drills. We will have 4 drills turning sixteen hours per day, per drill, (each drill will be operated by two shifts per day) and to finalize our Phase II drill plan by the end of this week. Implementation of the plan should be swift. The new drills are expected to arrive on site next Tuesday and our field managers have done an excellent job of training local people to equip the drill teams."

Initially, CMIN will have approximately 70 local workers manning the double-shifted Banka drills. Local community leaders, as well as the regional governor have voiced their favorable support for the way CMIN has built strong community relations in the district and whenever possible employed local people.

CMIN Completes Phase I Drill Program

In its recent release, CMIN announced it had drilled 26 strategically located holes using Banka drills to average depths of 10 - 12 meters (32 - 40 feet). Gold mineralization was discovered in most of the 26 holes, in many cases, beginning from or near the surface. Three of the holes returned gold grades that exceed levels currently witnessed in several large-scale alluvial dredging locations around the world.

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 461 square kilometer (178 square mile) 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 Maranon 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 during CMIN's 26-hole Phase I exploratory drill program indicates a potential presence of significant alluvial gold. The Company is now engaged in implementing a Phase II drill program that will focus on grid drilling in specific regions with an aim to develop gold resource estimates and to gather further data to determine the feasibility of large-scale mining of this vast resource.
