Mantra Mining Inc. to Change Its Name to TintinaGold Resources Inc.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 17, 2009) - Mantra Mining Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAN) ("Mantra" or the "Company") announces that the directors of the Company have approved changing the name of the Company to TintinaGold Resources Inc. ("TintinaGold") effective September 28, 2009, subject to regulatory and TSX Venture Exchange approval. Under the Company's articles, the name of the Company may be changed by a resolution of the directors. The Company expects the stock symbol for the Company to change concurrently with the proposed name change.

Rick Van Nieuwenhuyse, Executive Chairman said: "The name TintinaGold better reflects the company's focus on the Tintina Gold Belt, one of the more prolific and under explored gold belts in the world. With such world class assets as Donlin Creek (30 million ounce gold reserve owned by NovaGold and Barrick) and the Fort Knox Mine (400,000 a year annual producer owned by Kinross) and a host of recent new and exciting discoveries such as Livengood in Alaska and White Gold in the Yukon, we believe this is one of the hottest exploration venues in the world."
