Drilling continues to encounter strong mineralization north of Pit 1: intersects 215 FT. grading 0.85% Cu, 0.45 g/t Au, and 4.93 g/t Ag



    TSX.V: CUM

    VANCOUVER, Feb. 7 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation ("CMMC" or
the "Company) announces assay results from the last 32 drill holes of the 2007
exploration program at the 100% owned Copper Mountain project. Six drill-holes
were completed immediately north of Pit 1, fifteen drill-holes to the
northeast and northwest of Pit 2, five drill-holes in the Saddle Zone between
Pit 1 and Pit 3, and seven drill-holes in the northeast wall of Pit 3.
    The drill holes were completed during December, 2007, and were primarily
drilled to convert areas of inferred resources within the preliminary designed
"Super-Pit" to the measured and indicated categories in advance of the
Feasibility Study, which is currently underway and expected to be completed
early in 2008. Additionally, where drill-holes encountered significant
mineralization near the edge of the design pit, more holes were drilled
resulting in extensions beyond the pit boundary (see attached map).

    
    Key results from the five areas of drilling are:
    -   Drill-holes CM07P2-78-81, 83, and 85-90 were drilled to the north-
        east of Pit 2, in the entrance ramp area and intersected numerous,
        narrow to moderate length, intersections which will likely result in
        an extension and deepening of the design pit in this area. Of
        significance, CM07P2-89 intersected 67 feet grading 0.98% Cu, 0.34g/t
        Au and 4.34g/t Ag, starting at 23'.
    -   Drill-holes CM07P2-77 and 82 were collared 300' west of the north-
        western edge of Pit2 and intersected relatively continuous
        mineralization including 360 feet of 0.29% Cu, 0.13g/t Au and 0.9g/t
        Ag starting at 47'; which provides low-strip material for additional
        pit expansion.
    -   Drill-holes P1-02 to 06, were collared between 200 and 800 feet north
        of Pit 1 in an area of sparse drilling and inferred resources. All of
        these holes contained significant intersections, many of which are
        above average in grade. In particular, CM07P1-04 intersected 60 feet
        grading 1.03% Cu, 0.18g/t Au and 3.23g/t Ag from 275 to 335'; and the
        bottom of CM07P1-06 intersected 215 feet grading 0.85% Cu, 0.45g/t Au
        and 4.93g/t Ag.
    -   Drill-holes QA5 to QA9, are short holes within the saddle zone
        located between Pits 1 and 3, and did not intersect any significant
        near-surface mineralization.
    -   Seven holes were drilled in the northeast wall of Pit 3 in order to
        upgrade the classification of an area of inferred blocks within the
        resource estimate. Results were mixed, but CM07P3-05 returned an
        intersection of 90 feet grading 0.75% Cu, 0.10g/t Au and 1.98g/t Ag.
    

    A total of 44,000m (144,000 feet) of drilling was completed in 163 drill
holes in 2007. Completion rate for drill holes was 94%. The 2007 drill program
had three primary objectives: 1) to provide enough data to upgrade inferred
resources to the indicated and measured categories; 2) to validate and confirm
the historical data; and 3) to provide additional drill information peripheral
to, and between, the existing open pits; and at depth in order to delineate
additional resources. The interim resource estimate (Sept. 06, 2007)
demonstrated that the program had been highly successful in achieving all of
the objectives to that point and it is anticipated that the additional
drilling since then will be equally successful. All of 2007 drill results will
be added to the historical database for an updated, independent 43-101
compliant resource estimate which is anticipated early in 2008.
    Most of the more 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 the significant intersections from all of the 2007
drilling can be found on the company's website. It should be noted that there
are numerous narrow or low-grade zones within the drill holes that are not
reported but that still contribute to the resource estimate.
    The mineralized system at Copper Mountain is classified as a
bulk-tonnage, alkalic porphyry copper-gold 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 situated 300 km east of Vancouver, British
Columbia. The Copper Mountain project is a former producer of 1.7 billion
pounds of copper 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.
