    About Century Mining Corporation

    Century Mining Corporation is an emerging mid-tier gold producer that is
aggressively acquiring producing mines and exploration properties in Canada
and Peru. The Company owns and produces gold at the Lamaque mine in Québec
which historically has produced over 9.4 million ounces of gold. In Peru,
Century wholly-owned subsidiaries own an 82.6% interest in the San Juan Mine
where the Company accounts for 100% of gold production. Century subsidiaries
also own Rosario de Belen where it accounts for 100% of both gold and silver
production. Century's growth strategy is to acquire gold producing assets in
South America that will substantially reduce the Company's consolidated total
cash cost of production and where there is exceptional exploration potential
to expand production at these mines. On November 28, 2007 Century issued a
take-over bid for Sulliden Exploration Inc. at an exchange ratio of 0.72
Century shares for each Sulliden share.
