Andromeda and War Eagle Shareholder Meeting Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 19, 2010) - War Eagle Mining Company Inc. (TSX VENTURE:WAR) ("War Eagle" or the "Company") is continuing to work with the management of Andromeda Resources Inc. ("Andromeda") on the previously announced reverse takeover transaction. War Eagle and Andromeda are currently in discussion with several parties concerning the planned concurrent financing. The proposed transaction will require the approval of War Eagle's shareholders, but it will not be possible to seek shareholder approval until War Eagle and Andromeda have established the terms of the concurrent financing.

The Company previously scheduled its annual and special meeting for December 17, 2010. In order to minimize expenses, War Eagle's management and board would like to combine the statutory shareholder meeting with approval of the Andromeda transaction. Due to the approaching holiday season, it will not be practical to close a financing transaction in 2010 and so the Company intends to postpone its annual and special meeting until 2011. War Eagle will need to seek the approval of appropriate regulatory authorities as it would otherwise be required to hold a shareholder meeting in 2010. The Company will announce a new date for the annual general and special meeting in due course.
