CWRN: "Rate Fixed; Iron Cargo to Sail in March"

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 28, 2011) - Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CWRN) revealed today that due to the recent escalation in fuel cost a fixed rate for China Seaborne Iron Ore has been agreed to. The recent rise in Ocean Freight was the direct result of civil unrest in oil producing countries, resulting in an increase of $12.00 per metric ton in the last ten days. Panamanian Flagged MV AZUMA PHOENIX (or substitute) is scheduled to dock at the Ensenada International Terminal on March 17th, 2011. Management stated today that the seasonal rains have been relatively mild this year and that to date only eight days of production was lost due to inclement weather. The Baja Pacific Iron Mineral Mining Operations have now moved into continuous operations for Extraction, Processing, Grading, Trucking, Port Stockpiling and Shipping.

Pending Issues:

Pink OTC Markets: "Caveat Emptor symbol." CWRN Management has been vigorously working on clearing the CE issue, and expects it to be resolved before the end of March 2011. Our attorneys are diligently working on the matter by following the OTC Markets guidelines. We reiterate that Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. has not promoted its shares, and feel the value of our company will ultimately be realized in the near future by the market.

The Rumor Mill / New Iron Mineral Deposits and Buyout and Buy-in Proposals:

Due to the constant internet chatter, phone calls and electronic mails asking the Company about a large new iron mineral project, and if we have received an buyout offer; management has decided to disclose to the public that it has paid $30,000.00 in mineral taxes on the 21,000 hectare (52,500 acres) "Mina Nazarena" as part of its contribution in a Consortium Group that is planning to develop the large iron mineral deposit within year 2011. The CWRN Team will be responsible for development and operations of the project. The mineral concession is located in south central Baja California, approximately 80 kilometers from the Sea of Cortez and 50 kilometers from the Pacific Ocean. The highlight of the project is a 14 kilometer (8.75 miles) long magnetite strike. The Company will begin exploration within the next few weeks. The estimated size of the ore bodies has not been confirmed; however, it is believed to be one of largest in Baja California if not the largest. The Company is also reviewing its options on two other iron mineral concessions located outside of Baja, pending the investment strategy of its U.S. investors which have indicated to management, that they are willing to go the distance on larger iron mineral projects. 

Cotton & Western Mining, Inc. U.S.A. has received an unsolicited Buyout or Buy-in offer from a U.S. private investment firm for all outstanding and issued shares for $0.15 cents per share. We have decided to decline the offer for our shareholders, as we feel it does not represent the true value we envisioned; however, if a future offer is accepted, all shareholders will be updated at the proper time.

Buy Back Program:

As stated in a previous News Release, the Company will begin a "Market Share" buyback program of CWRN common free trading shares on a per shipment basis. 

Notes: The Baja Pacific -- "Mina Guadalupe" is operated by Panamerican Minerals Ventures, S.A. de C.V., Ensenada, Baja California, under contract with CWRN and held in trust for CWRN by its principal officers and directors, Robert L. Cotton and Sharon Vazquez.
