Capstone Completes Another Successful Drill Season at Minto Mine

Additional 67 Million Pounds of Copper in M&I Mineral Resource and New High Grade Copper-Gold Discovery

VANCOUVER, Feb. 2, 2012 /CNW/ - Capstone Mining Corp. ("Capstone") (TSX: CS) today announced the result of an updated National Instrument 43-101 compliant mineral resource estimate for the Wildfire/Copper Keel area at its Minto Mine in Yukon, Canada.  Follow-up drilling in the Copper Keel region of Minto South Deposit ("MSD") in the second half of 2011 has added an additional 67 million pounds of copper resource in the measured and indicated categories.  At a 0.5% copper cut-off grade, total mineral resources at the Minto Mine exceeds 1.1 billion pounds of copper.

In addition, the 2011 drill program produced a new discovery called Fireweed. A total of 26 holes were drilled on Fireweed "A" and "B". The best intercept to date is 3.2% Cu & 1.0g/t Au over 16.6 metres including 6.8% Cu and 1.9g/t Au over 7.1 metres in hole 11SWC-871 at Fireweed A and  3.4% Cu and 1.4g/t Au over 14.4 metres including 4.2% Cu & 1.3g/t Au over 7.6 metres in hole 11SWC-882 at Fireweed B.  Fireweed "A" is located approximately 200 metres east of the Minto East deposit and Fireweed "B" lies a further 170 metres east of Fireweed "A".  Fireweed drilling highlights are summarized in a table below and the full results are attached.

"Exploration success at Minto continues to translate into mineral resource additions to support our objective of organic growth at our existing mining operations," said Brad Mercer, Vice President, Exploration for Capstone.  "Since 2006, the Minto Mine has achieved steady mineral resource increases through a program of discovery followed by feasibility studies in a series of phases.  This updated mineral resource will be included in the next Pre-Feasibility Study, which is currently underway."

"The latest new Fireweed discovery, not yet included in any mineral resource estimate, was made by testing a geological target that became compelling after we completed a new 3D geology model of MSD," continued Mr. Mercer.  "Future exploration at Minto will focus on depth, exploring beyond the limits of our existing geophysical surveys as our understanding of Minto's geology evolves," he added.

Drilling operations have begun again in 2012 on a $4.8 million exploration drill program (23,500 metres).  Drilling will initially in-fill the relatively shallow gap between the MSD and the Ridgetop deposits. After that, the Company will follow-up its latest exploration success by refocusing on Fireweed and on the potential for further high grade mineralization at depth in the Minto system. As in previous years, the 2012 program will be conducted in two phases, winter and summer, separated by a pause in the spring for thaw and freshet.  It is anticipated that the Company will provide an update of exploration results part way through 2012 when drilling is paused between phases.

Minto South Deposit (MSD) - Updated Mineral Resource Estimate effective as at December 31, 2011

The Wildfire/Copper Keel area is a southeastwardly extension of the Minto South Deposit.  On May 30, 2011 the Company announced a mineral resource gain of 219 million pounds of copper from drilling conducted in 2010 and early 2011 in the Wildfire/Copper Keel area of MSD. Geological modelling incorporating these drill holes indicated geological continuity between the Wildfire/Copper Keel region and the Area 2/118 region and supported a geological reinterpretation indicating these areas are part of one larger deposit (MSD) and not separate deposits as initially thought.  Subsequently, drilling in mid to late 2011 in the same area now brings the total holes in the current estimate to 423 and added a further 67 million pounds of copper in the M&I Class for MSD. Data from these latest drill holes add further confidence in geological continuity of mineralization modelled in the previous MSD estimate and also expands the limits of mineralization northward on the Copper Keel levels of MSD from the May 30, 2011 model.

Below are tables summarizing the new total mineral resource estimate for MSD and the gain in mineral resources at MSD since the last estimate.

Mineral resources that are not mineral reserves do not have demonstrated economic viability. Mineral resource estimates do not account for mineability, selectivity, mining loss and dilution. These mineral resource estimates include inferred mineral resources that are normally considered too speculative geologically to have economic considerations applied to them that would enable them to be categorized as mineral reserves. There is also no certainty that these inferred mineral resources will be converted to measured and indicated categories through further drilling, or into mineral reserves, once economic considerations are applied.

Total Mineral Resources at the Minto Mine as of December 31, 2011

The table immediately below summarizes the total mineral resource on the Minto property at a COG of 0.5% Cu. It includes the undeveloped Minto North, Minto East and Ridgetop deposits and the Minto South deposit where development (pre-stripping) is underway plus a small amount of resource remaining on the east flank of the Minto Main open pit that is relatively low grade and not considered in any current mine plan.

Appended to this release are tables summarizing both the MSD and the total Minto Mine mineral resources at various copper COGs. Please note that estimated grade and tonnage stated at copper COGs below 0.5% copper are for illustrative purposes to show the sensitivity of the mineral resource to decreasing copper COGs.

Also note that mineral resources at higher cut-off grades are also for illustrative purposes and do not necessarily imply a higher potential for economic extraction. Only those mineral reserves determined by previous feasibility studies to be mineral reserves are currently considered economically viable. The property-wide mineral resource numbers reported herein are inclusive of all previously defined mineral reserves that are currently supported by previous pre-feasibility work. Please refer to the Technical Report titled Minto Phase V Preliminary Feasibility Study Technical Report dated December 15, 2010 filed on SEDAR for any further discussion about mineral reserves at Minto. A new pre-feasibility study (Phase VI) is currently underway to apply economic considerations to the newly estimated mineral resources in the Wildfire/Copper Keel extension of the MSD.

Mineral Resource Estimate Methodology

The mineral resource estimate for the Wildfire/Copper Keel addition to the Minto South Deposit reported herein was prepared by SRK Consulting of Vancouver.  The estimate was completed in Gemcom Software GEMS© using a three dimensional block model (10 metres by 10 metres by 3 metres (vertical) block size).  The mineralization was interpreted into nine distinct domains, modelled as wireframes and used as hard boundaries to constrain estimation.  Geostatistical analysis was completed on the 1.5 metre composite assay data for each of the metals, and variograms were defined for each domain of mineralization.  The grades for copper and gold were interpolated into the block model using ordinary kriging method, whereas the silver grades were interpolated using the inverse distance squared method only.  Interpolated results are reported in measured, indicated and inferred categories and are based on continuity of the mineralization and sample density.

Quality Assurance

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects of the Canadian Securities Administrators ("NI 43-101") and supervised and reviewed by Brad Mercer, P. Geol., Vice President, Exploration for Capstone a "Qualified Person" as defined in National Instrument 43-101 and the person who oversees exploration activities on the Minto Mine property.  In addition, Gregg Bush, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Capstone, reviewed and approved this news release

The mineral resource estimate reported herein for the Minto South Deposit (including Area 2, Area 118, and Wildfire/Copper Keel zones) was estimated by Wayne Barnett, Pr.Sci.Nat. and Marek Nowak, P. Eng. of SRK Consulting. Dr. Barnett is the Independent Qualified Person under NI 43-101 responsible for the MSD mineral resource estimate and has reviewed the information in this release in respect of the MSD mineral resource estimate. The database used to estimate the Wildfire/Copper Keel deposit was audited by SRK. SRK is of the opinion that the current drilling information is sufficiently reliable to extend with confidence the boundaries of the mineralized domains from Area 2 into Wildfire/Copper Keel, and that the assaying data is sufficiently reliable to support estimating mineral resources. The mineral resources presented herein have been estimated in conformity with generally accepted CIM "Estimation of Mineral Resource and Mineral Reserves Best Practices" guidelines and are reported in accordance with Canadian Securities Administrators' National Instrument 43-101. Mineral resources are not mineral reserves and do not have demonstrated economic viability. In the opinion of SRK, the block model resource estimate and resource classification reported herein are a reasonable representation of the mineral resources at Wildfire/Copper Keel deposit at the current level of sampling.

With respect to the MSD mineral resource estimate and the Fireweed discovery, the analytical method for the copper and silver analyses is aqua regia digestion of the samples followed by atomic absorption spectroscopy.  Gold is analysed by fire assay fusion with atomic absorption spectroscopy finish.  Analyses are carried out by ALS Chemex in North Vancouver. When visible gold is noted in drill core samples or regular fire assay values appear abnormally high, screen metallic assay method is used to determine the total gold content and gold content of different size fractions. This is considered industry best practice when dealing with coarse gold mineralization where a nugget effect is suspected. This determination is accepted as the most representative value and is used in the assay database for resource calculations. Blank and standard samples are used for quality assurance and quality control.  Where more than two check samples assay outside expected ranges, the entire batch is re-assayed. After the completion of planned drill programs, random check assays will be carried out by Inspectorate-IPL of Vancouver.
