    UNITED STATES/

    VANCOUVER, July 9 /CNW/ - Continent Resources Inc. (CNQ: CORE)
(the "Company") wishes to announce that the Company has agreed to increase its
previously announced non-brokered private placement. The Company will now
propose to issue up to 8,400,000 units at a price of $0.25 per unit for gross
proceeds of up to $2,100,000. All other terms of the non-brokered private
placement remain the same as per the May 30, 2008 press release.
    Proceeds from the private placement will be used to carry out geological,
geochemical and geophysical studies on the properties being acquired, the
initial phase of drilling on the Lone Mountain property and for general
working capital. Drilling will initially focus on the near-surface copper
oxide mineralization with specific holes deepened to probe the underlying,
higher-grade copper-zinc-silver skarn mineralization discovered during
previous, historical drilling campaigns.
