NWM to Conduct Strategic Review to Maximize Shareholder Value

TSX Venture Exchange
Symbol: NWM

TORONTO, Nov. 3, 2011 /CNW/ - NWM Mining Corporation (the "Company") (TSX-V: NWM) is pleased to announce that the Company has initiated a process to explore and evaluate potential strategic alternatives in order to unlock shareholder value. As part of the strategic review the Company has engaged M Partners Inc. as financial advisor to assist in this process.

The strategic review will encompass a thorough analysis and evaluation of the prospects and options available to the Company.  These options may include a joint venture, sale, merger, strategic investment or other alternatives identified by the Company or M Partners that will serve to maximize shareholder value.

The Company's CEO Chris Berlet commented, "This is a good time to review strategic alternatives for NWM as the Company is preparing to mine a second deposit (the La Jojoba gold reserve) and to continue with the ramp up of gold production at the Lluvia-Jojoba gold project. There remains meaningful exploration potential on the 5,075 hectare property package surrounding the two known deposits. Given the robust gold price environment and our proximity to achieving full commercial production in a mining friendly jurisdiction, we feel that the true value of Company shares is not reflected in the market."

The Company has not set a timetable for completion of the review process, and it does not intend to comment further regarding the review process unless a specific transaction is approved by the Board of Directors, the review process is concluded or it is otherwise determined that further disclosure is appropriate or required by law.
