Constitution Mining Purchases First Drill and Appoints US-Based Johnson Drilling as Lead Driller on the Gold Sands Project

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2009) - Constitution Mining Corp. (OTCBB:CMIN) announces that Paul Johnson, of Johnson Drilling Company will be the lead driller on the Gold Sands Project. Additionally, CMIN is pleased to announce it has purchased a churn drill from Buckeye Supply Company of Zanesville, Ohio that's been customized specifically to enable an efficient and continuous drill program to be carried out throughout the Gold Sands Project area.

Constitution Mining CEO, Dr. Willem Fuchter commented, "Paul Johnson and his team at Johnson Drilling have extensive worldwide experience drilling gold sands-style alluvial projects with similar geological and topographical characteristics as our Gold Sands Project. They are an excellent addition to the impressive team of independent mining industry firms we have contracted to oversee and audit virtually all aspects of our Gold Sands drill program. And now that we have acquired our first drill, complete with all critical spare parts, we look forward to aggressively drilling the potential of this giant alluvial field."

The drill rig has a CAT 3024 4-cylinder diesel engine equipped with a twin disc PTO, 5" drive pulley and Braden 10 ton hydraulic winch. Ancillary equipment purchased includes a full string of drill stems, bits, casing, drive shoes, sand pumps, sample trough and drive heads for drilling classic 6" ID casing with a 7.5" OD drive shoe sample holes.

Dr. Fuchter added, "Considering that our drill rig is capable of drilling up to 30 feet per day and that we plan to drill to depths of 150 feet, we should be able to drill and report a new hole every 7 to 10 days. Therefore, Shareholder's of Constitution Mining could reasonably anticipate that once drilling begins - expected within the new few weeks - we will be delivering a consistent flow of industry recognized drill results."

About Constitution Mining Corp.

Constitution Mining intends to consistently increase the amount of honest money - gold and silver - underlying the number of shares the company has outstanding. The company's primary area of focus to create this value is the rapidly developing region known as the "Gold Sands of Peru", where it has optioned 382km2 (229 square miles) of mining properties - the largest property holdings in the district. The Gold Sands of Peru have been formed by the erosion of the gold-rich hinterland. For millions of years two major rivers systems have been carving their way through the gold-rich Andean mountains of Peru and Ecuador, depositing gold in loose gravels and sands - Gold Sands - below the Manseriche gorge in Northeastern, Peru. Privately funded historical drilling of more than 500 holes in a 'proof of concept' zone located on Constitution Mining's properties, indicates the potential for the region to contain many millions of ounces of alluvial gold. By utilizing new mining technologies that are both efficient and environmentally friendly, the experienced management of Constitution Mining fully intends to capitalize on this exciting opportunity to provide long-term value for all shareholders.
