Deep Penetration Geophysical Survey commences at Copper Mountain

    TSX.V: CUM

    VANCOUVER, Oct. 2 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation ("CMMC" or
the "Company) announces that the Titan 24 - Deep Electrical Earth Imaging
equipment and crew are now on site at the Company's Copper Mountain Project in
south-east British Columbia. The Titan 24 ("Titan") is one of a few systems in
North America that is capable of this deep earth imaging and is the most
advanced electrical earth imaging technology currently available. The Titan 24
work will complement the ongoing comprehensive exploration program that
includes approximately 51,000 meters of diamond drilling. Once the Titan 24
field work is complete and data compiled, it will be used in assisting the
Company in identifying potential for deep-seated, large porphyry deposits
and/or the feeder systems which produced the known ore deposits of the Copper
Mountain Project (see attached schematic).
Targets identified with this survey will be tested with drilling in the near
    Measuring the parameters of DC (resistivity), IP (chargeability) and MT
(magnetotelluric resistivity), Titan measures to depths of 750 meters with IP
and can explore beyond 1.5 kilometers with MT data. These depths and
multi-parameter data make the system the best option available for obtaining
subsurface pre-drilling information related to geologic structure and for the
direct detection of mineral deposits. The Titan employs distributed array
technology for data acquisition pioneered in the oil and gas industry. By
measuring 24 or more stations simultaneously, Titan is able to efficiently
record and process a vast amount of data. By sampling more data, faster and
simultaneously, it provides increased reliability and accuracy of information
compared to other methods. The method also employs a larger array (generally a
2400 meter spread), delivering much deeper capability than traditional means
and airborne methods. The Titan is operated by Quantec Geoscience Limited
("Quantec"), a leading global provider of geoscience solutions.
    Copper Mountain has engaged Quantec to complete the Titan 24 geophysical
survey over the central part of the mine site including several past
producing, near-surface orebodies. The survey covers an area that hosts a
large proportion of the recently announced interim 43-101 resource of 2.9
billion lbs of copper (see news release dated September 6, 2007) and will
assist in determining the potential for additional ore at depth, possibly
beneath the existing pits or elsewhere in the property. The exploration
program is being supervised by Peter Holbek, M.Sc., P.Geo., a qualified person
as defined by National Policy Instrument 43-101.
