Symbol "GTC" TSX Venture Exchange
VANCOUVER, Dec. 29 /CNW/ - Getty Copper Inc. (TSX-V: "GTC") announced today that negotiations with China based ZGSTG in furtherance
of the proposed joint venture reflected in the letter of intent
announced September 15, 2010 have terminated on account of the parties
being unable to reach consensus on the formal agreement terms. Getty
expects to receive and announce the results of the Titan 24 geophysical
survey which was carried out on the Getty North and South properties by
Quantec Geoscience during the November/December period in the next few
weeks. The termination of negotiations is not the result of any advance
information about the survey results. Getty will issue ZGSTG shares at
$0.30 to compensate ZGSTG for paying for the Quantec geophysical study
upon receipt of data and relevant legal documentation.
Getty is a Vancouver based company focussing efforts on advancing its
200 square kilometre copper property which is immediately adjacent to
Teck's Highland Valley copper mine. Getty recently filed a 43-101
compliant pre-feasibility study over the two known copper deposits
which cover less than 10% of the property area. The pre-feasibility
study suggests that the Getty deposits would have robust economics at
current spot copper prices
