Century Posts Court Documents That Support Algamarca's Legal Position In The Dispute Over Shahuindo

    BLAINE, WA, Oct. 22 /CNW/ - Century Mining Corporation (CMM: TSX-V)
Century has posted on its website the 2004 injunction granted by the Civil
Court of Cajabamba restricting Sulliden from entering Shahuindo as well as the
Civil Courtroom of the Superior Court Cajabamba's recent notices regarding
inspection of the Shahuindo concessions to ensure Sulliden has not violated
the terms of that injunction.
    Century has also posted on its website the August 2007 decision of the
Superior Court of Lima nullifying the 2006 arbitration award in Sulliden's
favor and its subsequent denial of Sulliden's request to suspend the effects
of that decision as a result of Sulliden's appeal. Contrary to comments in
Sulliden's press releases dated September 21, 2007 and October 17, 2007, the
effects of the Superior Court's decision to nullify the arbitration award have
NOT been suspended and now the various administrative processes relying on the
2006 arbitration award, such as the 2006 injunction against Algamarca and the
registration of the concessions in Sulliden's name, have no legal foundation;
this situation is now being corrected by the various courts and administrative
authorities in Peru, as discussed below.
    Century has posted on its website the September 16, 2007 decision of the
55th Civil Division of the Superior Court of Lima to reverse the injunction
Sulliden won in 2006 against Algamarca, which injunction contained the basis
for the registration of the Shahuindo concessions in Sulliden's name. With the
lifting of that injunction, there is no juridical basis for the registration
of the concessions in Sulliden's name. The administrative processes are now
underway to revert the registration of the Shahuindo concessions back into
Algamarca's name.
    The Court of Cajamarca is now instructing the Director General of
Environmental Issues of the Minister of Energy and Mines of Peru to revoke the
temporary (9-month) permit it had granted on April 17, 2007 to Sulliden to
perform certain exploration work on Shahuindo. This correspondence from the
Court of Cajamarca to the Minister of Mines is also posted on Century's
    Commented Margaret Kent, Chairman and CEO of Century, "We have taken a
position of total transparency. We have posted on our website the various
court documents, and in some cases the certified translations of these
documents, which support the claims we made in prior press releases regarding
recent developments in Peru. I encourage the shareholders of Sulliden to read
the court filings and decisions for themselves and I am confident that they
will arrive at the same conclusion we have: the courts in Peru are
increasingly more supportive of Algamarca's legal position in this dispute."

    On behalf of the Board of Directors,

    "Margaret M. Kent"
    Chairman, President and C.E.O.
