Lima, Peru - October 5, 2010 - Constitution Mining Corp. (CMIN.OB) announces the appointment of Mr. James Prudden as the Company's Vice President of Exploration and Development.

Mr. Prudden has been appointed to serve as VP Exploration and Development of the Company. He replaces Mr. Gary Artmont our current VP of Exploration. Mr. Artmont will continue to serve as a member of the board of directors.

Mr. Prudden brings 40 years of experience in placer mining of precious metals. Among his assignments, he served as Chief Engineer at Valdez Creek Placer mine in Alaska. He was in charge of the Tena Ecuador project on the Rio Jatunacu coordinating and supervising six geologists. Jim's alluvial experience includes diamonds, tin, ilmanite and other minerals in Africa, North America, Canada, Mexico, Central America and South America. He has worked for INCO, Anglo American and US Steel in a variety of senior technical and management positions in Australia. He has an engineering, geology and gemology degree and has developed several mines. Jim was the leading technical advisor for Constitution Mining's Gold Sands Project in Peru prior to his election to VP of Exploration and Development of the company.

Constitution Mining CEO, Dr. Michael Stocker stated, "We are pleased to have Mr. Prudden step into this very important position. As one of the more experienced experts in both the art and science of placer exploration and mining, we believe that his skills will prove to be a key asset for the company's GoldSands exploration team."

About Constitution Mining Corp. (CMIN.OB)

The Company's goal is to locate large-scale commercially viable gold deposits and continuously increase the amount of gold underlying its outstanding shares. The Company is interested primarily in geographical areas that are home to several significant proven gold deposits, including highly prospective districts likely to hold further large deposits.


The first and most active project is in the Gold Sands region of Peru where the Company holds options on 461 square kilometers (178 square miles) of mining property, the largest such block in the district. These Gold Sands were laid down by eons of alluvial erosion. For millions of years, the waters of the Santiago and the Maranon rivers have been carving their way through the gold- rich mountain canyons of the Andes, carrying off vast amounts of gold and depositing it in the loose gravels and sands - Gold Sands - in the area the Company now controls.

Results from test holes drilled during CMIN's 26-hole Phase I exploratory drill program indicate the presence of significant alluvial gold. The Company is now actively engaged in conducting a Phase II drill program focused on grid drilling a 2.5 square kilometer region. While the results from the Phase I drill program and the initial results of the Phase II, 100-hole drill program are highly favorable, further results are needed to determine the full feasibility of the project.

The full implementation of these programs will require the Company to secure additional financing.
