CWRN: B.O.D Extends 90 Day Freeze on Issuing Free Trading Shares

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - August 13, 2009) - Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CWRN) announced today that the Board of Directors by consent resolution extended its freeze on issuing new free trading shares for another 90 day period. The total number of free trading shares has remained at 299,304,162 since May of 2009. The unannounced action resolution was put into force in May, pending the success of a negotiation involving the execution of an agreement with a buyer - financier for the Baja Pacific Iron Mining Project. Since the Company completed its exploration activities in Baja California in late 2008, the Company has reduced its general and administrative cost to a bare minimum and has reserved its cash in response to the down-turn in the steel industry. The recent surge in the China Seaborne Trade has been a welcomed sign of improved market conditions for the iron ore trade and has brought with it the renewed optimism for the successful start-up of the Baja Pacific Iron Mining Project. It is most certain that the Company will begin preproduction activities at the Baja Pacific N0.14 magnetite iron mineral reserve before the end of September, 2009. The purpose of the freeze on issuing new free trading shares is to eliminate any further dilution of the Company's stock, keeping it at the current level and letting the market settle the value of the Company once a revenue stream is generated; this also will insure that no reverse split of the Company's stock will be executed as the Company moves forward.
