Sulliden loses registration of Shahuindo concessions to Algamarca

    BLAINE, WA, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Century Mining Corporation (CMM: TSX-V)
today received notice from the Superior Court of Lima that it has lifted the
injunction dated September 7, 2006 thereby nullifying the registration of the
Shahuindo concessions in Sulliden's name.
    This court order is based on a previous ruling by the Superior Court
nullifying the 2006 arbitral award and declaring the arbitral agreement
invalid because of the insufficiency of Mr. Miguel de Orbegoso Tudela's power
to enter into that agreement. The arbitral agreement forms part of the 2002
transfer agreement between Sulliden Shahuindo S.A.C. and Compania Algamarca
S.A. / Algamarca Exploraciones S.A. that was signed by Mr. Orbegoso.
    This is yet another key victory for Century Mining in its plans for the
development of the gold reserves on the Shahuindo property.
    Margaret Kent, President & CEO of Century, commented, "This victory is a
key judicial event for Century. It provides further evidence of the court's
support for Algamarca's (Century's Peruvian subsidiary) title to the Shahuindo

    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 Sigma and Lamaque mines in Québec that
historically have produced over 9.4 million ounces of gold. In Peru, Century
wholly-owned subsidiaries own an 82.6% interest in the San Juan Mine where the
Company accounts for 100% of gold production. Century subsidiaries have also
recently acquired Rosario de Belen where it accounts for 100% of both gold and
silver production. Century's growth strategy is to acquire gold producing
assets in South America that will substantially reduce the Company's
consolidated total cash cost of production and where there is exceptional
exploration potential to expand production at these mines.
