Century Mining Announces Late Filing Of Annual Financial Statements

    BLAINE, WA, April 30 /CNW/ - Century Mining Corporation (CMM: TSX-V)
announced today that it has filed a notice with the British Columbia
Securities Commission (BCSC) pursuant to BCSC National Policy 12-203 advising
that the Company will not be filing its annual financial statements
("financial statements") and Management's Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for
the year ending December 31, 2008 before the prescribed deadline of April 30,
2009. The Company has made an application under the aforementioned policy
requesting that a Management Cease Trade Order be imposed in respect of this
late filing.
    The Company cited numerous changes, including the appointment of new
auditors of the Company, the settlement of various debts and the appointment
of a new Financial Officer in Peru, all of which contributed to the delay in
filing. Specifically, Century was unable to fund the auditors of the Company
in a timely manner due to a lack of working capital. This issue has since been
resolved, and Century is working with the auditors to expedite the completion
and filing of the financial statements and MD&A.
    The Company made every effort to file the financial statements and MD&A
by the prescribed deadline of April 30, 2009, but it has been determined by
the Company and its auditors that no amount of effort will overcome the delays
caused by the changes described above.
    Century currently expects to file the Company's financial statements and
MD&A on or before May 15, 2009. The Company also confirmed that it will
provide default status reports so long as it remains in default of its
requirements to file the financial statements and MD&A within the prescribed
period of time.
    Century confirmed that the delay in filing the Company's financial
statements and MD&A will have no adverse effect on the Company's current
financing initiatives as described in a separate press release issued on April
28, 2009. Furthermore, the financial statements do not contain any material
gains or write-downs from the third quarter 2008 financial statements. Century
also stated that there is no other material information concerning the affairs
of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this
press release.
