Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Clifton Mining Company

    ALPINE, UT, April 30 /PRNewswire/ - Clifton Mining Company (CDNX: CFB and
 OTC: CFTN) is pleased to announce that American Silver LLC (a private company
 in which Clifton currently owns 40%) has just been issued its first patent on
 its ASAP Solution(R). The Biotec company has also just passed the EPA test
 work to be used as an approved water and surface disinfectant.
 
     The Patent
     ----------
     American Silver LLC's first patent was issued on 4/10/01. American Silver
 LLC is now the only manufacturer in the world with patents on this type of
 silver product. The patents have been filed for patent protection in 95
 countries and the patent has also been filed in Japan.
 
     EPA Tests
     ---------
     American Silver's ASAP Solution(R) has just passed the US-EPA tests for
 water treatment and as a hard surface disinfectant. Tested under worst-case
 conditions, the ASAP Solution(R) was able to eradicate 177 of 180 strains of
 Salmonella choleraesuis in less than five minutes. In the testing, the ASAP
 Solution(R) was also able to kill 179 of 180 strains of both Staphylococcus
 aureus and Pseudomonas areuginosa in less than 15 minutes. One of the most
 notable facts of the testing was that the ASAP Solution(R) passed all of the
 EPA tests at a concentration of just 4.4 ppm, a dilution of 56% from the 10
 ppm supplement currently being sold worldwide.
 
     New Sales Divisions
     -------------------
     American Silver LLC has formed a new manufacturing and sales subsidiary
 company called American Biotec Labs. American Biotec Labs has structured five
 new sales divisions. Each new division handles sales in specific markets. One
 division markets to MLM companies, where the product is sold for direct use as
 a dietary supplement and as an antibacterial additive to other products.
 Another division, will soon start marketing both water and surface
 disinfectants products to dental and medical offices world wide.
 
     National Exposure
     ------------------
     Within the next 60 days, it is anticipated that an accredited university
 will release a study that has taken approximately 2.5 years to produce. This
 new report, released nationally, is anticipated to announce positive test
 information that can establish the ASAP Solution(R) as a viable, natural
 option to the problem of the overuse of antibiotics.
     Said Moeller, "We expect that within the next two years, American Silver
 will have a very significant effect on Clifton Mining's income potential."
     Clifton trades on the CDNX (CFB) and also on the US pinksheets (CFTN).
