Vancouver, B.C., November 16, 2018. CENTURION MINERALS LTD.

Each Unit consists of one common share and one common share purchase warrant exercisable for 2 years and priced at $.05.

As news released on October 24, Centurion expanded the private placement and has received conditional approval from the TSX Venture Exchange to raise up to $320,000. The Company anticipates completing the remaining amount shortly.

Proceeds from this financing are estimated to be used by the Company as follows:
Operating capital-Ana Sofia Project- $75,000;
Audit fees – $51,000;
legal fees- $15,000;
accounting- $10,000;

promissory notes interest- $50,000;

regulatory filing fees-$3,000;
working capital- $42,000.


The Ana Sofia Project includes an agri-gypsum open pit mine and processing facility having a current design capacity of 4,000 tonnes/month. Gypsum is extracted from near-surface, flat-lying beds within the sedimentary formation that extends throughout the Ana Sofia Property, located in Santiago del Estero Province, Argentina. The gypsum rock is fed into primary and secondary crushers, then screened and sorted into two agri-gypsum fertilizer products. The plant is designed to produce a pellet-sized granular product and a fine powder product (comprised of a minimum 85% gypsum content) that are each packaged into one tonne tote bags. Agricultural gypsum (calcium sulfate dihydrate) is a valuable plant nutrient and plays a vital role in maintaining soil structure and nutrient balance in South American soils, resulting in enhanced crop yields.

The Project comprises two mining concessions totalling 50 hectares (ha) in size within a larger (approximately 600 ha) exploration permit area. The Project is well situated within a region where other small producers are currently extracting agricultural gypsum and selling to fertilizer distributors and farmers. An initial inferred gypsum resource for the Project was estimated (news releases – October 31, 2016 and December 16, 2016) to comprise 1.47 million tonnes averaging 94.1% gypsum, using an 85% cut-off grade that is the minimum required gypsum content for commercial-quality agricultural gypsum products in Argentina.
