Getty Copper Inc. - JOINT VENTURE NEGOTIATIONS TERMINATED

Symbol "GTC" TSX Venture Exchange

VANCOUVER, Dec. 29 /CNW/ - Getty Copper Inc. (TSX-V: "GTC") announced today that negotiations with China based ZGSTG in furtherance of the proposed joint venture reflected in the letter of intent announced September 15, 2010 have terminated on account of the parties being unable to reach consensus on the formal agreement terms. Getty expects to receive and announce the results of the Titan 24 geophysical survey which was carried out on the Getty North and South properties by Quantec Geoscience during the November/December period in the next few weeks. The termination of negotiations is not the result of any advance information about the survey results. Getty will issue ZGSTG shares at $0.30 to compensate ZGSTG for paying for the Quantec geophysical study upon receipt of data and relevant legal documentation.

Getty is a Vancouver based company focussing efforts on advancing its 200 square kilometre copper property which is immediately adjacent to Teck's Highland Valley copper mine. Getty recently filed a 43-101 compliant pre-feasibility study over the two known copper deposits which cover less than 10% of the property area. The pre-feasibility study suggests that the Getty deposits would have robust economics at current spot copper prices
