    BLAINE, WA, March 27 /CNW/ - Century Mining Corporation (CMM: TSX-V)
announces today that, subject to regulatory approval, it will complete a
non-brokered private placement of up to C$4.5 million, comprised of both units
and flow through shares.
    This private placement is for up to C$4.5 million of aggregate gross
proceeds in any combination of (i) units at an issue price of C$0.23 per unit;
(ii) common shares issued on a "flow-through" basis at an issue price of $0.25
per flow-through share; and (iii) flow-through shares at an issue price of
$0.35 per share.
    Each unit will consist of one common share of the Company and one common
share purchase warrant, with each warrant entitling the holder to purchase,
for a period of 18 months from the date of issuance, one additional common
share of the Company at an exercise price of C$0.40 per share.
    In connection with the private placement the Company will pay certain
persons for introducing subscribers to the Company a finder's fee of cash
equal to 7% of the aggregate gross proceeds of such placement, and share
purchase options equal to 7% of the aggregate number of flow-through shares.
Each option shall be exercisable at a price of $0.23 for a period of 18 months
from the date of issue and shall entitle the holder to acquire one common
share of the Company and one warrant exercisable for one common share at a
price of $0.40 for a period of 18 months.
    The proceeds from this offering will be used for the development of the
Lamaque Mine, further mill expansion at San Juan, and working capital. All of
the securities issued under these private placements will be subject to a
four-month hold period.
    The Company also announced today that it has closed the final tranche of
a non-brokered private placement of 4,297,572 flow-through shares at a
subscription price of C$0.35 per flow-through share for gross proceeds of
C$1,504,150. The final tranche consisted of 1,142,857 flow-through shares for
gross proceeds of $400,000. This financing was previously announced on

the Company, Century paid a 6% cash finder's fee. All of the securities issued
under this private placement are subject to a four-month hold period. The
proceeds of this flow-through share financing will be used for exploration on
and near the Company's Lamaque properties in Québec.

    About Century Mining Corporation

    Century Mining Corporation is an emerging mid-tier gold producer that is
aggressively acquiring producing mines and exploration properties in Peru. The
Company owns and produces gold at the Lamaque mine in Québec that historically
has produced over 9.4 million ounces of gold. In Peru, Century's wholly-owned
subsidiaries own an 82.6% interest in the San Juan Mine where the Company

Rosario de Belen mine where it accounts for 100% of both gold and silver

cash cost of production and where there is exceptional exploration potential
to expand production at these mines.
