Kola Mining Corp. Acquires Bogunay Gold Project in Russia

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - Kola Mining Corp. (TSX VENTURE:KM)(FRANKFURT:C8M) ("Kola" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement to acquire a Russian company, OOO Artel Staratelei Angarskaya Proizvodstvennaya Kompania ("OOO"), that owns a 100% interest in the Bogunay Gold Property in Krasnoyarsk Territory, South Siberia, Russia (the "Property"). Under the terms of the agreement Kola will pay the vendor approximately 24,000,000 Russian Rubles (approximately US$700,000). OOO also has an outstanding loan with a third party for US$1,100,000, of which $550,000 must be repaid by January 2010 and the balance by October 2010. Kola will also pay a finder's fee of US$25,000 to a third party.

Based on non-compliant (and therefore not disclosable) Russian resource estimates and other historic information the Company has estimated a potential target ranging in tonnage from 5,800,000 to 9,400,000 tonnes, at grades ranging from 2 to 10 g/t Au, for total contained gold ranging from 22.2 tonnes to 40.1 tonnes or 648,000 ounces to 1,171,000 ounces. The area includes the Bogunay mine area, old mine tailings and other exploration targets within the property boundary.

Investors are cautioned that the potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature and that there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource. It is uncertain if further exploration will result in the confirmation or discovery of a mineral resource. In addition, Kola cautions investors that the Soviet classified resources are not NI 43-101 compliant and that CIMM and JORC resource categories do not directly conform to, nor recognize the Soviet A, B, C1, P1 and P2 resource categories. A Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101 has not done sufficient work to classify the estimates as current mineral resources and the estimates should not be relied upon. Kola does not consider the estimates to be current mineral resources, but it does consider the estimates to be a significant indication of the overall mineral potential, as discussed above.

The Property is located 196 km from Krasnoyarsk, center of Krasnoyarsk Territory, South Siberia, Russia. It is accessed via graded gravel road (12 km) and is 16 km to the nearest railway station. The project has excellent access to power, water and a qualified local workforce.

The Bogunay mine was in operation from 1936 to 1951 and is reported to have run at an average grade of 8.5 g/t Au. The area had been closed due to its proximity to a Soviet strategically sensitive location until 2002, at which time a license to conduct exploration and subsequent production of gold was issued. It is in effect until 2026. Since the issuance of the license, more than US$2 million has been invested in exploration of the licenses. This work has included drilling, ground and airborne geophysics, trenching and chip sampling, environmental and as well as several other studies. This work has led to the estimation of potential gold summarized above.

The gold at Bogunay occurs in gold rich quartz veins within shear zones or as gold sulphide mineralization in altered gneisses and schists. They may also be rich in copper and silver. The deposit was previously mined both from underground and by open pit. The Krasnoyanskaya zone is located along the south flank of the Bogunay deposit. The gold here occurs in stockworks of sulphide mineralization, which may also contain copper and silver. The true thickness of the mineralized zone ranges from 7 to 26 meters. It has been well delineated with a series of trenches, adits, shafts and diamond drilling.

Kola plans to process old mine tailings utilizing a local mill. It is also considering using this mill along with contract miners to start early production from the old mine which could generate near term cash flow for the Company.

Mikhail Yuryev, the Chairman of the Board of Kola states, "Kola Mining Corp. is continuing to develop and evaluate gold and precious metals deposits among Russia's tremendous untapped resources. There are a vast number of exceptional assets available to capable companies. The Kola Mining management team has extensive knowledge and experience mining in Russia and can act opportunistically in these current economic conditions."

Brian McEwen, P.Geol., is a "Qualified Person" for the purposes of NI 43-101 and he has approved the technical information presented in this news release.
