President Stephen Quin Stepping Down at Year-end, but Continuing as Director

VANCOUVER, Canada, November 29, 2010 - Capstone Mining Corp. (CS: TSX) today announced that Stephen Quin will be
stepping down from his position as President of Capstone at the end of 2010,
but will be continuing as a director of the Company.

"Stephen Quin made a significant contribution to the success of Capstone
and its predecessor, Sherwood Copper," said Darren Pylot, Vice Chairman and
CEO of Capstone. "He has been an integral part of the team that has built
Capstone into what it is today, and we appreciate his contributions to that
success. Stephen will continue to serve as a director of Capstone and we look
forward to benefiting from his continuing input and experience," he added.
"Going forward, all of us at Capstone wish him the very best in his future

"In five years, we have achieved a great deal with Capstone and its
predecessor, Sherwood Copper Corp.," said Mr. Quin. "Starting Sherwood with a
modest market capitalization of under C$10 million, we were able to acquire
the Minto project, advance it through feasibility to production in two years,
on time and on budget. In the three years since, mill throughput has been
doubled and the discovery of seven new deposits more than doubled the mineral
resources at Minto. In addition, the Company acquired the Kutcho copper-zinc
deposit and are well along the process of revamping the project as a high
grade underground project and advancing it to a development decision," he
said. "The complimentary combination of Capstone and Sherwood Copper was a
transformative event, producing a well-financed and low cost copper producer
with a market capitalization of approximately C$900 million that is well
positioned to continue its growth into one of the premier intermediate copper
producers on the international stage. None of this could have been achieved
without the contributions of a talented and dedicated team of employees, the
support of local governments and First Nations, and the guidance of our board
of directors. I look forward to continuing to work with this outstanding
group as a director of the Company, while I refocus on new opportunities."

The departure of Mr. Quin has been under discussion for some time and
arrangements for an orderly transition have been established and are well in
