Centrasia Continues to Intersect Wide Zones of Gold Mineralization at Severny

1.49 G/T AU OVER 43 METRES FROM SURFACE

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 6, 2007) - Centrasia Mining Corp. ("Centrasia" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTM)(OTCBB:CTMHF)(FRANKFURT:C8M) is pleased to announce the 2007 drill program on the Severny Copper Gold Prospect ("Severny") on its Bulakashu Property in northern Kyrgyzstan is well underway with encouraging results to date. Four diamond drill rigs are now operating on Severny and thus far, four drill holes have been completed totaling 1,908 metres of the planned 6,000 metre program.

Complete assays have been received for three of the holes. Each of the three holes are on a NE to SW striking fence designed to test the south-central portion of an IP-resistivity anomaly and associated surface gold mineralization identified in the fall of 2006 (See October 5, 2006 news release). Hole SV07-07 was drilled to a depth of 296 metres, intersecting sporadic gold mineralization and quartz-sericite-pyrite alteration ("QSP") throughout most of the hole. Hole SV07-08, 200m to the southwest of Hole SV07-07, was drilled to a depth of 501 metres, intersecting strengthening QSP alteration and gold mineralization over wider intervals. Hole SV07-09 was drilled to a depth of 320 metres, under a road cut where a surface rock chip sample returned 48m of 2.27 g/t gold (See October 23, 2006 news release). Hole SV07-09 intersected two distinct, broad zones of gold mineralization and associated intense QSP alteration. The mineralized intervals are separated by post mineral, unaltered andesite dikes. The mineralization and alteration vectors point toward the southwest where last year's rock chip surface sampling encountered gold values ranging from 0.14 g/t up to 37.7 g/t in QSP altered greenstones. The table below shows the significant drill intercepts.

Douglas Turnbull, the company's President and C.E.O., states, "Our drilling to date continues to expand the size and extent of the gold target at Severny on surface and at depth. With each drill hole, we are beginning to get a better understanding of the distribution of gold mineralization within this large alteration system. Up until now we have been focusing on delineating the limits of the near surface, bulk tonnage gold target. We will need to do a lot more detailed drilling in order to delineate some of the structurally controlled zones of gold mineralization that we are encountering in drilling and on surface."
