Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. -- CWRM Receives $10,000,000.00 Commitment From Asian Group

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CWRM) announced today that the company has received a $10,000,000.00 financial commitment from an Asian Group for the development of the company's Baja California Iron Mining Project; subject to finalization of the geological reevaluation scheduled to begin in January or February 2008.

For reasons of confidentiality, the group's name is being withheld for the time being and will be announced in a later news release.

CWRM recently acquired three (3) mixed magnetite and hematite iron mineral deposits, located in Baja California, Mexico. Outcrop chemical analysis has revealed the iron minerals to be of commercial grade suitable for concentrated fines in sizes 0.15 through 10 millimeters. Diamond bit core drilling and mine development planning are scheduled to begin in the first quarter 2008.

Photographs of the new mineral rights concessions, designated as Baja Pacific No. 4, 5 and 6 can be viewed at the company's website: www.cottonwestern.com under Photo Gallery. The surface of the mineral deposits contains many visual magnetite and hematite outcrops that are easily distinguished in the pictures. A magnet is shown attached to many of the outcrops verifying that the minerals are iron magnetite, gray in color or grayish/red in color where the iron minerals are mixed Magnetite/Hematite.
