Logan Copper's Dansey Project operations update

Trading on TSX.V - Symbol LC

LADNER, BC, April 21 /CNW/ - LOGAN COPPER INC. (the "Company") has planned and is currently mobilizing for a comprehensive drilling and trenching program on the Dansey Project area of its Logan Copper property. This program is designed to follow-up on the Company's 2009 Midway Zone drilling, which intersected a zone of progressively stronger sulfide copper mineralization that remains open at depth.

Diamond drill-hole 09-SND-14 is the deepest of three holes drilled on the Midway Zone to date. This hole intercepted 168.3 meters of 0.17% copper containing 85.0 metres of 0.24% copper and remains open at depth, as drilling difficulties necessitated the hole to be abandoned within a large mineralized zone. The first hole drilled on the Midway Zone, 09-SND-13, was drilled to 85.1 meters and featured similar lithology and mineralization to that intersected by shallower sections of 09-SND-14. The last hole drilled on the Midway Zone, 09-SND-15, was also abandoned due to drilling difficulties at a depth of 206 meters. Based on detailed core-logging this hole contains similar lithology and mineralization to that of 09-SND-14, however this hole remains uncut and will be processed at the beginning of the 2010 season. (See News Release dated January 20th, 2010)

The primary objective of the 2010 program will be to follow-up on this drilling with a minimum 750 meter deep drill-hole, followed by a series of step out holes to define the extent of this mineralization. Concurrently trenching will continue to expose areas covered by overburden containing evidence of surface copper mineralization surrounding the 2009 drilling.

The Midway Zone drilling is located 1.4 kilometers south of previous Company drilling conducted in 2008 and early 2009. This was successful in defining an approximate 500 meter by 400 meter area of sulfide copper mineralization within a series of faults. Some of the significant intercepts are listed below:
