BLAINE, WA, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Century Mining Corporation (CMM: TSX-V) today announced that, subject to regulatory approval, it will complete a non-brokered private placement of up to C$4,000,000 comprised of units consisting of one common share issued on a flow-through basis and one half of a common share purchase warrant exercisable at a price of $0.30 for 18 months from the date of closing.

The Company will issue 20,000,000 units at an issue price of $0.20 per unit. The proceeds from this offering will be used for the underground drilling of the Lamaque project in Val-d'Or, Quebec.

The Company will pay Oberon Capital Corporation for introducing subscribers to the Company a finder's fee of cash equal to 4% of the aggregate gross proceeds, and broker warrants equal to 4% of the aggregate number of flow-through shares. Each broker warrant shall be exercisable for 18 months from the date of issue and shall entitle the holder to purchase a common share of the Company for a price of $0.20. The flow-through share issuance is subject to approval by the TSX Venture Exchange. All of the securities issued under this private placement will be subject to a four-month hold period.

Margaret Kent, President and CEO of Century commented, "This financing is part of the $21 million private placement, the balance of which we expect to close in early December."
