Creston's Application for Leave to Appeal Is Denied

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 7, 2009) - Creston Moly Corp. ("Creston" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CMS) advises that its application to the Supreme Court of British Columbia (the "Court") seeking leave to appeal of the arbitrator's decision on the finder's fee has been denied.

In a decision handed down on December 23, 2008, an arbitrator ruled that Creston was required to pay $4,140,000 plus costs (the "Award") to Sattva Capital Corp., the finder in connection with the acquisition of Creston's molybdenum property in Mexico. The Company entered into a finder's agreement to pay a fee in the amount of US$1,500,000 in shares, or at the election of the finder, in cash. Creston received Exchange approval to pay US$1,500,000 or the equivalent amount in shares valued at $0.70 per share, which was the value of the shares issued for the acquisition and a related financing. The finder, however, sought to have the fee paid in shares at a price of $0.15 per share and referred the matter to arbitration. In December 2008, the arbitrator found in favour of the finder, however Creston sought leave to appeal the Award to the Court and today was advised that its request for an appeal has been denied.

Management of the Company are very disappointed by this development and are considering a further appeal of the decision of the Court.

The Company has sufficient funds on hand to satisfy the Award and will continue with the proposed acquisition of Tenajon Resources Corp.
