Constitution Mining Reports Encouraging Results From Its Atena Gold Project, Salta Province, Argentina

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2008) - Constitution Mining Corp. (OTCBB: CMIN) announces that ongoing exploration at its Atena Gold Project has revealed additional encouraging results, further stimulating expectations that a significant ore body may be present.

Dr. Willem Fuchter, Constitution Mining's CEO, commented, "Although it is still too early to tell what the full potential for the Atena Gold Project may be, the work we've done to date is certainly giving us cause to be very optimistic."

Some 187 samples were assayed from existing and newly identified veins within the Project Area. These samples returned results as high as 8.17 g/t Au, 422 g/t Ag, 22.0 % Cu, 6.5% Pb, and 13.3 % Zn. More importantly, the additional sampling program has led to the identification of a third target zone within the Project Area.

Including the newly discovered zone, the three target zones at the Atena Gold Project are known as Atena I, Cristalita, and Esparta III. They have a strike length of 2700m, 2400m and 2900m respectively. On the Esparta III zone, sampling has defined shoots in excess of one kilometer from which all samples assayed returned values higher than one gram per tonne.

Dr. Fuchter continued, "The sampled target zones are now being followed up with additional sampling and strike trenching to better define the shape and tenor of the mineralized shoots. Upon completion of this next phase of exploration, we intend to conduct a diamond drilling program to test the zones at depth."

"In addition to our mining assets in Argentina, we are actively evaluating potential acquisitions that are capable of generating immediate and long-term value for our shareholders," added Dr. Fuchter.
