Getty Copper sulfuric acid use and recovery update

    Trading Symbol TSX V: GTC

    VANCOUVER, July 3 /CNW/ - The Company wishes to announce that it has
engaged Eco-Tec Inc. of Pickering, Ontario, Canada ( as a
vendor for the provision of hydrometallurgical acid recovery technology via
their globally commercialized Acid Purification Unit (APU(R)). This technology
as proposed, would be a benefit to the Company as it allows effective
recovery, recycle and usage of sulfuric acid, a key component in global
hydrometallurgical copper processing facilities. Eco-Tec will also be engaged
in technical support services for optimization and confirmation of the
proposed hydrometallurgical design in support of the currently on-going pre
feasibility engineering study by West Coast Environmental and Engineering. For
reference, the industrially proven APU(R) acid recovery system offered by
Eco-Tec was awarded the Falconbridge Innovation Award in 2005 for their APU
applications in hydrometallurgy. Eco-Tec was also awarded the Ontario Global
Trader's Award for Innovation in 2005 and 2007. For reference, the Company is
proposing to utilize acidic concentrate pressure oxidation and tailings vat
leaching hydrometallurgical technology in its possible anticipated treatment
of the Getty copper and molybdenum resources located in the Highland Valley of
British Columbia.

    The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy
    or accuracy of this release.

    This release includes certain statements that may be deemed
"forward-looking statements". All statements in this release, other than
statements of historical facts, especially those that address estimated
resource quantities, grades and contained metals, are forward-looking
statements because they are generally made on the basis of estimation and
extrapolation from a limited number of drill holes and metallurgical studies.
Although diamond drill hole core provides valuable information about the size,
shape and geology of an exploration project, there will always remain a
significant degree of uncertainty in connection with these valuation factors
until a deposit has been extensively drilled on closely spaced centers which
has occurred only in specific areas on the Getty Project. Although the Company
believes the expectations expressed in its forward-looking statements are
based on reasonable assumptions, such statements should not be in any way
construed as guarantees of the ultimate size, quality or commercial
feasibility of the Getty Project or of the Company's future performance.
Subsequent results and developments may differ materially from those
postulated in the estimates and forward-looking statements. Other factors that
could cause the Company's actual results and performance to differ materially
from those in forward-looking statements include adverse market prices for
metals, the conclusions of detailed feasibility and technical analyses, lower
than expected grades and quantities of resources, mining rates and metal
recovery rates and the fact that necessary capital may not be available to the
Company on terms acceptable to it or at all. The need for compliance with
extensive environmental and socio-economic rules and practices and the
requirement for the Company to obtain government permitting can cause a delay
or even abandonment of a mineral project. The Company is subject to the
specific risks inherent in the mining business as well as general economic and
business conditions. For more information on the Company, Investors should
review the Company's annual Form 20-F filing with the United States Securities
Commission and its home jurisdiction filings that are available at
