Copper Mountain Mining Corporation - Drilling confirms Pit 2 expansion west towards Pit 1 and intersects 340 feet grading 0.74% CU, 0.25 g/t Au, and 2.12 g/t Ag



    VANCOUVER, Nov. 28 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation ("CMMC" or
the "Company) announces assay results from fifteen additional drill-holes
completed in the western Pit 2 area and eight drill-holes in the Saddle Zone
of the 100% owned Copper Mountain project where a major drill program
continues.
    "We continue to extend, or discover new mineralized zones, within areas
adjacent to and between the existing open pits and have encountered excellent
grades near surface in these recent holes, particularly in gold," stated
President and CEO, Jim O'Rourke. "The focus of the drill program is to upgrade
and expand the resource used in the recently announced Preliminary Assessment
Report which was based only on drilling up to July 20, 2007. These holes
demonstrate the presence of mineralization between Pit 1 and Pit 2 that should
enhance the resource and the Super Pit concept. There is also growing evidence
for an extensive zone of mineralization at depth. Drilling continues with five
drills turning on a 24 hour basis in a program that should be delivering
results continuously early into the first part of the new year," stated
O'Rourke.

    
    Key results from the drilling on the western side of Pit 2 are:

    -   Mineralization occurs throughout the area between the western side of
        Pit 2 and the north-eastern side of Pit 1 (Pit 1-2 Saddle Zone)
        indicating that this area will enhance the optimization of the super
        pit within the mine plan.
    -   Drill-hole P2-56 is the most significant intersection in this batch
        being released, which intersected 340 feet grading 0.74% CU,
        0.25 g/t Au, and 2.12 g/t Ag (0.85 % Cu Equiv.) approximately
        300 feet southwest of the western corner of Pit 2.
    -   Precious metal grades within the Saddle zone and Pit 2 areas are
        similar to historical pit 2 precious metal grades (higher gold and
        lower silver relative to Pit 3).
    -   Drill-holes within the Saddle Zone between Pits 1 and 3, and the
        Saddle Zone, between Pit 3 and Pit 2, continue to intersect numerous
        zones of mineralization below the mostly barren lithocap.
        Intersections in this area will continue to improve mine economics as
        any barren areas that are converted to mineralized blocks will reduce
        the overall strip ratio down from the present level of 1.5:1 reported
        in the recently released Preliminary Assessment Report.
    

    To date, results from a total of 107 drill-holes have been released,
including those contained herein, and these results will continue to be merged
into the database for an updated independent 43-101 compliant resource
estimate which is anticipated early in 2008. The current drilling in the Pit 2
and Saddle zone areas has three primary objectives: 1) to provide enough data
to upgrade inferred resources to the indicated and measured categories; 2) to
confirm the extension of Pit 2 west towards Pit 1; and 3) to provide
additional information at depth and in areas of low drill density in order to
convert waste blocks to mineralized blocks.
    Significant intersections from drill-holes announced in this press
release are listed in the table below and shown on the attached map. A
complete list of drill results can be found on the company's website.
    The mineralized system at Copper Mountain is classified as a
bulk-tonnage, alkalic porphyry copper deposit that is hosted within Nicola
Group volcanic rocks. Mineralization is structurally controlled and focused at
multi-directional vein intersections and within vein stockwork systems. Drill
holes are usually drilled at angles of -45 or -55 degrees to provide the best
indication of the lateral extents of vertically oriented mineralization.
    The Copper Mountain project is strategically located 300 km outside of
Vancouver, British Columbia. The Copper Mountain project is a former producer
and has extensive infrastructure in place, including power and water. The site
can be accessed year round as a paved highway goes right to site.

    Quality Assurance

    The company employs a system of quality control for drill results which
includes the use of blanks, certified reference material (standards) and check
assaying. Core is logged on site and split with a diamond saw. Samples are
shipped to Pioneer Laboratories for geochemical analysis of copper with all
values of greater than 1000 ppm copper being re-analysed by assay methods for
copper, gold and silver. The drilling program is being supervised by Peter
Holbek, M.Sc., P.Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Policy
Instrument 43-101.
