OTC Disclosure & News Service
Las Vegas, NV -
Mission Mining Company (OTC Pink: MISM)
Over the past several months, Mission Mining Company has undergone a total reconstruction of the Company’s business model, moving away from environmental technology development and focusing entirely on gold, silver, and precious metals mining and processing. Rebuilding and restructuring a public company is a monumental task that has required over six months of arduous effort by our management team, attorneys, advisors, and consultants to accomplish. Moving to a mining business model also required changing the Company’s name and its trading symbol to reflect its entry into the mining industry. Mission Mining is now looking forward to setting itself apart from others in this industry due to a singular focus toward quickly bringing to production domestic gold and silver mining properties, although the Company is still in the early stages of execution of this new business direction. Our management team has made many bold decisions and overcome many challenges in a relatively short time period in order to dramatically change the direction of Mission Mining Company and create a rejuvenated company that already possesses promising project opportunities within its grasp. We are very confident in our potential ability to achieve success on behalf of the Company’s shareholders.
I am extremely pleased to announce that Mission Mining Company has recently been granted full DTC eligibility status by the Depository Trust Company (DTCC). DTCC has permitted Mission Mining Company’s stock to resume being deposited under DTC to enable normal electronic trading of MISM stock. This now allows the financial marketplace to execute standard trades, ultimately generating a broader distribution of MISM stock throughout all segments of the investment community. Management would like to express its sincere gratitude to Seth Farbman, President of Vstock Transfer (www.dtceligibility.com), and Lorin Rosen with the Law Office of Lorin Rosen, Esq. (www.larlawgroup.com), for their guidance and assistance in working with DTCC to enable restoration of the Company’s full DTC eligibility.
The Company has engaged PCAOB auditors to audit the past two fiscal years of Company financials in preparation for filing a registration statement on Form S-1 with the SEC in order to become a fully reporting ’34 Act company. We anticipate the audit will be completed within a few weeks, and updates resulting from the completed audit should soon be made available to our shareholders.

About Mission Mining Company:
Mission Mining Company will focus on the acquisition and development of significant US gold and silver mining properties under a business plan to expeditiously place these mining properties into production. The Company has recently acquired 100% ownership in the Gold Star mining property in western Nevada, holding substantial values in total Measured, Indicated, and Inferred gold and silver resources. The Gold Star Mine is a large mining property in Esmeralda County, Nevada, near the town of Goldfield made up of drilled and tested high value alluvial deposits. The property is comprised of six U.S. Bureau of Land Management claims making up 960 acres of total land area. The Gold Star Mine promises to be a cornerstone development project, under which Mission Mining Company plans to pursue the mining and production of gold and silver ores. Continuing its commitment to restructure the Company on behalf of its shareholders, management has made a decision to focus on the acquisition and development of large US gold and silver mining properties. As a result of the acquisition of the Gold Star Mine, the Company has significantly increased its total assets, as reflected in its financial statements filed with OTC Markets.
