Centrasia Identifies Coincident Geophysical and Geochemical Anomalies on Uleeta Ni-PGM Prospect on Kola Peninsula

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 12, 2008) - Centrasia Mining Corp. ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE:CTM)(OTCBB:CTMHF)(FRANKFURT:C8M) announces that ground Induced Polarization ("IP") and Magnetic Surveys have identified a three-kilometer long, high-magnitude IP anomaly, indicative of potential sulfide mineralization, on its 100% owned Uleeta Ni-PGM prospect on the Kola Peninsula. Rock chip samples from outcrops within the geophysical anomaly returned values from below detection to a maximum of 0.3% Ni, 0.08 gram/tonne Pd, and 0.1 gram/ton Pt. This exploration license covers 240 square kilometers covering a previously identified but undrilled layered ultramafic intrusive. This exploration license is 100% owned by RudpromInvest, a wholly owned subsidiary of Centrasia Mining Corp. Geophysical surveys consisted of 150 line kilometers IP/resistivity and 143 kilometers of ground magnetics over a part of the ultramafic intrusive.

Geophysical anomalies were defined as areas of magnetite destruction coupled with areas of high chargeability. A total of 720 geochemical samples of soil and outcrop were collected along the geophysical traverse lines. A 1,000 meter drill program will commence in the spring.
