Copper Mountain commences Feasibility Study with Hatch Engineering

    TSX.V: CUM

    VANCOUVER, Dec. 13 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation ("CMMC" or
the "Company) is pleased to announce that Hatch Ltd. ("Hatch") has been
engaged to complete a Feasibility Study as recommended by the recently
released Preliminary Assessment Report on the Company's 100% owned Copper
Mountain project located near Princeton, British Columbia. The Feasibility
Report will form a key component in making a production decision on the Copper
Mountain Project in the first half of 2008. The Company's goal is to have the
Copper Mountain project in production by the end of 2010.
    The Feasibility Study will be based on the design criteria in the
Preliminary Assessment Report which involves processing 35,000 tonnes per day
of mill feed and producing a copper concentrate containing approximately
100 million pounds copper per year plus gold and silver. Giroux Consultants
Limited have been contracted to update the 43-101 interim resource report
filed on SEDAR and included drill data up to July 20, 2007. The updated
resource report will include drill data up to December 20, 2007. Drilling at
the site has been continuous since July and the company plans to continue an
aggressive drilling program into 2008 to maximize the property's potential and
test some of the deeper potential identified in the recently released Titan
24 results (see news release dated December 4, 2007).
    Mr. O'Rourke, Chief Executive Officer of Copper Mountain stated: "We are
pleased to have Hatch involved with this project early and proceeding with the
Feasibility Study is another major step forward for the Company in the
reactivation of this past copper and precious metals producer. We believe
shareholders should be very pleased with our aggressive program that has seen
the completion of an interim resource and positive preliminary assessment and
now the commencement of a Feasibility Study, just 11 months after acquisition
of the property. It is a tribute to our team of professional and consultants
that we have been able to move this project ahead at such a rapid pace, and we
are very pleased to have Hatch officially on board with the task of completing
the Feasibility Study in the first half of 2008."
    At present the Company has 4 drills on site, making it one of the largest
exploration programs in BC for the 2007 year. The exploration program is being
supervised by Peter Holbek, M.Sc., P.Geo., a qualified person as defined by
National Policy Instrument 43-101.
