Copper Mountain Mining Corporation - Drilling of geophysical anomaly under pit No. 3 intersects 322 ft of 1.31% Cu

    TSX.V: CUM

    VANCOUVER, June 4 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation ("CMMC" or
the "Company) is pleased to announce that the Company's deep penetrating
diamond drill hole program targeted to test the large geophysical anomaly
underneath Pit 3 has intersected significant mineralization 1,200 feet below
the current pit bottom. The hole confirms depth continuity of high grade
mineralization and adds confidence to the geophysical model. The main
mineralized intercept of 957 feet at 0.55% Cu includes 322 ft of 1.31% Cu,
5.53 gpt Ag and 0.34 gpt Au. Highlights are included in the table below and
shown on the attached map.
    The anomaly was identified as part of the Titan 24 deep penetration
geophysical survey on the 100% owned Copper Mountain project, situated near
Princeton, British Columbia. The Titan survey has outlined several large areas
of high chargeability, both near to surface and at depth (see attached
figure). Currently known mineralization and the interpreted geological model
for the area correlate well with the chargeability anomalies, providing
confidence in the survey interpretation. Drill-hole CM08P3-08 is the first
deep diamond drill-hole which tests the chargeability anomalies underneath Pit
3. The drill-hole ended in mineralization and intersected a number of
mineralized zones over a total drilled distance of 3,025 feet (see table)
which validates the geophysical results in this area. Results from diamond
drill-hole CM08P3-08 are as follows:

    Drill-hole P3-08 was collared 200 meters east of Pit 3 at a 47 degree
angle and confirms the depth continuity of the high grade mineralization. The
high-grade mineralized zones within the Pit 3 area are predominately vertical
and as the drill-hole had flattened to 30 degrees below the pit bottom the
true thickness of the mineralization is estimated to be approximately 87% of
the intersected distance.
    A total of five drills are currently working on the property: two drills
are located on the northeast wall of Pit 3 to upgrade inferred resources
within the five year pit plan; one drill is located in Pit 3 to provide
details for mine planning; one drill is drilling the northwest extension of
Pit 2 where drill results have identified a new zone of mineralization that
may have the potential to expend the Super Pit; and the fifth drill has been
allocated to testing the Titan 24 geophysical anomalies. Drilling since
December 20, 2007 has not been included in the updated resource report being
prepared for the Feasibility Study. The 2008 drill results will be added to
new resource estimates as the project progresses and used for subsequent
optimization of the mine plan.
    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 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 via a paved public road to the mine gate, 20 kilometres
from the town of Princeton. A Feasibility Study is currently under way with
completion targeted for the first half of 2008.

    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 1,000 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.
