HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - May 16, 2008) - Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CWRM) -- Robert L. Cotton, President of Cotton & Western Mining, Inc., has recently returned from Hong Kong and China where meetings were held with direct buyers and end-users of crude iron ore, steel making materials. The company has been entertaining several offers over the past few months involving both the purchase of materials on annual contract pricing, packaged with financing incentives for the exclusivity of the Baja Pacific No. 8 iron ore production. One of the more attractive proposals involves the Buyer issuing a Standby Letter of Credit in favor of CWRM which would allow the company to open iron ore production in Baja California, Mexico. Further to that end, CWRM has secured a Hong Kong banking facility against a confirmed SBLC issued and guaranteed by a Chinese steel maker.

The company has been asked not to release the name of the Chinese Steel Mill at this time; however, a joint news release will issued upon the final contract signing which the company expects will be sometime in June, 2008.
