Constitution Mining Receives Permits to Proceed With Gold Sands Drill Program

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA--(Marketwire - April 29, 2009) - Constitution Mining Corp. (OTCBB:CMIN) announces that the Department of Environmental Affairs of the Ministry of Mining and Energy in Lima, Peru has approved the Company's Environmental Impact Declaration or DIA ("Declaracion de Impacto Ambiental") which it submitted in mid-March 2009 and issued a Category 1 exploration permit. This approval enables Constitution to proceed with its initial 20-hole drill program.

The approval was granted by Resolution Nr 011-2009-MEM-AAM and resulted from extensive work carried out by the Company and its environmental consultants, AMEC Peru SA. "We are very pleased with the outcome of the DIA application which was approved without modification and within the regulated timeframe," commented Constitution Mining CEO, Dr Willem Fuchter, who further added, "This was a result of the diligent work undertaken by our field personnel in conjunction with our industry-partner AMEC and the full support of local communities."

AMEC is continuing with additional baseline studies covering all of CMIN's mineral properties in order to produce and submit an Environmental Impact Assessment or EIAsd ("Estudio de Impacto Ambiental semudetallado") permit application so that a Category II exploration program can commence immediately upon the successful conclusion of the Category I program.

About Constitution Mining Corp.

Our goal is to continuously increase the amount of gold underlying each of our outstanding shares. To build such value, we are focusing on the rapidly developing Gold Sands region of Peru, where we have optioned 382 square kilometers (229 square miles) of mining properties - the largest such block in the district.

The Gold Sands of Peru 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 much of the treasure in loose gravels and sands - Gold Sands - below the Manseriche gorge in Northeastern Peru. There the rivers reach a broad flood plain, slow to a crawl and release their cargo.

Drilling results from more than 500 test holes in a 'proof of concept' zone located on Constitution Mining's properties indicate the presence of tens of millions of ounces of alluvial gold in the region. We intend to capture the profit potential of that gold by applying recently enhanced mining technologies that are especially well suited to low-density, near-surface deposits. These green-mining technologies are energy-efficient and environmentally friendly -features that support their profitable use.
