Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. Issues Second Equipment Purchase Order

RICHMOND, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2007 -- Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CWRN) -- Robert L. Cotton, President & C.E.O. of Cotton & Western Mining, Inc., announced today that the company has issued its second purchase order for a total of $662,500.00 to Construction Trailer Specialist, Inc. of Sikeston, Missouri for twenty-five (25) 40-foot Packmule Bottom Dump Trailers as part of its ramping up for iron mineral production at one of its selected mineral leases through the "Cotton & Quantum Minerals Venture." All U.S. purchased equipment will be shipped out of the Port of Seattle, Washington.

Construction Trailer Specialist, Inc. is a major mining and aggregate trailer manufacturer of specialized heavy haul trailers. http://www.constructiontrailerspecialists.com/packmule.html

This purchase order completes the exported equipment needed to open the first iron ore production project: bulldozers, excavators, wheel-loaders and trucks will be on a lease basis, secured in the area of operations.

The company will be issuing additional purchase orders for sets of crushing, screening and separation equipment together with more hauling trailers to be exported to its Asian mineral leases, for projects two and three. It is anticipated that at least one other mining operation will be started up before the first project is in full production in order to meet iron ore production and shipping requirements of its joint venture partner, Quantum International of Houston, Texas.

CWRN is currently negotiating for two (2) new iron mineral leases to offset the maximum shipping capacity of its initial mining site. Utilizing three (3) ports, the joint venture could expand its shipping capacity to near 500,000 dry metric tons per month, which is now a new shipping target of the venture.

It is expected that the venture will be in production within the six (6) month time frame that was set upon the signing of the joint venture agreement with Quantum International.

Under the terms and conditions of the joint venture agreement, CWRN shall be responsible for all mining operations, and selection of iron mineral leases to exploit, while Quantum International shall be responsible for all funding and finished product contract sales.
