Margaret Kent, President & CEO commented, "We are pleased to welcome Diana Rollo and Brent Jones to the Company. They fill two key positons and join Century at an exciting time in our growth as we continue to acquire gold producing assets and exploration properties in Peru to supplement our gold production in Quebec. Diana has a wealth of experience in public practice and mining and will make a significant contribution as we grow the Company. Her experience in US GAAP reporting and Sarbanes Oxley compliance will be indispensable as we seek a U.S. listing. Brent's experience will be invaluable as we broaden our investor base, both institutionally and geographically.

We have engaged National Media Associates to assist us with our media awareness and development of a large U.S. individual investor base. NMA will provide ongoing exposure of the Company to the media, journalists, analysts and investors who follow the gold mining sector. The firm works with a number of companies in the gold mining sector. We look forward to working with NMA to increase our profile in the North American investment community and enhance shareholder value."

About Century Mining Corporation

Century Mining is an emerging mid-tier gold producer that is aggressively acquiring producing mines and exploration properties in Peru. The Company owns and produces gold at the Sigma and Lamaque mines in Quebec that historically have produced over 9.4 million ounces of gold. In Peru this year Century acquired control of the San Juan Mine where the Company accounts for 100% of gold production, and recently signed an agreement to acquire, initially, a 38% interest in the Poderosa Mine. This transaction is expected to close within the next two weeks. Century's growth strategy is to acquire gold producing assets in South America that will substantially reduce the Company's consolidated total cash cost of production and where there is exceptional exploration potential to expand production at these mines.
