Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. - New porphyry target to be drilled at Copper Ace project


    VANCOUVER, Jan. 11 /CNW/ - Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. ("Copper Ridge"
or the "Company") announces that it will drill a minimum of 1,200 m on its
100% owned Sheridan claim group, part of its Copper Ace copper-molybdenum
project adjacent to Taseko Mines Limited's Gibraltar Mine, south central
British Columbia. The property is road accessible, approximately 40 km north
of Williams Lake, B.C.
    The target at Sheridan is a copper, molybdenum and zinc soil anomaly with
a strong, coincident Induced Polarization ("IP") chargeability anomaly and a
weak magnetic anomaly. The IP anomaly is approximately 1,500 m wide and in
excess of 2,500 m long. The soil geochemical anomaly, greater than 1,500 m in
diameter, is defined by moderately anomalous copper and molybdenum values with
fringing anomalous zinc values. The moderate intensity of the anomaly may be
the result of thick glacial till cover. Government geology maps show the
property to be underlain by Cache Creek Group volcanic and sedimentary rocks
and Cretaceous felsic intrusive rocks. No rock outcrops have yet been observed
within the anomaly area. However, the anomaly lies along trend with the
mineralization at the Gibraltar Mine, 10 km to the northeast (see attached
figure). The soil anomaly has been developed over two years of prospecting and
exploration at Copper Ace. The IP and magnetic geophysical surveys were
completed in December 2007 by Scott Geophysics Ltd. of Vancouver. The Sheridan
claim group has recently been expanded from 2,740 hectares to 6,210 hectares
in size.
    The Company believes the Sheridan geophysical and geochemical survey
results present a compelling target for a new porphyry copper-molybdenum
discovery. The drill program, planned to commence in early February, will
include six to eight drill holes for a total of 1,200 m. Maps showing the
geophysical and geochemical characteristics of the new Sheridan anomaly can be
seen on the Copper Ridge web site at Mr. J. Greg Dawson,
P.Geo., Vice President of Exploration for Copper Ridge, is the Qualified
Person for the Copper Ace project and is responsible for the technical content
of this news release.
    Copper Ridge's exploration philosophy focuses on maximizing the potential
for success in a high-risk business. With grass roots mineral exploration,
where the entry cost is low but the potential reward can be very high, success
will be contingent on exploration skill and on carefully managed risk. Our
management team brings tenacity, technical skill and experience, all crucial
ingredients for discovery. By exploring a broad array of projects, focusing on
the right commodities, in areas of high mineral potential, in mining-friendly
jurisdictions and by sharing the risks on some projects with joint venturers,
Copper Ridge is exposing its shareholders to a greater chance for discovery.
The Company is anticipating an active field program on its Yukon and British
Columbia properties in 2008.
