Gil Clausen, Copper Mountain?s President and CEO stated, ?These early phase 2 drill results are very encouraging, and we believe demonstrate that New Ingerbelle will continue to grow in quality and size. We see New Ingerbelle as having transformative potential for our operations in B.C. providing further growth opportunity for the Company.?

New Ingerbelle provides considerable upside as the Company has never reported any New Ingerbelle Mineral Reserves. Copper Mountain initiated a 3-Phase drilling program at the New Ingerbelle Mine last year with Phase 1. The Phase 1 program, which consisted of 22 drill holes, was successful in validating and confirming historical data, thus allowing a revised Mineral Resource estimate using both historical and new drill data. The program also confirmed the significant gold mineralization at New Ingerbelle (see February 1, 2018 press release).

The objectives of this Phase 2 drilling program are to continue to expand the New Ingerbelle resource area and to convert Inferred Mineral Resources to the Measured and Indicated status. A total of 30 holes are planned. Complete drill results from this program followed by an updated Mineral Resource estimate is planned in Q3 2018.

The Company?s objective under the 3-phase program at New Ingerbelle is to outline sufficient resources to form the basis of a Feasibility Study on the development potential of this historic producing mine. The Company?s target is to add a minimum of 150 million tonnes of Measured and Indicated resource to commence that study.

Significant intercepts from the seven completed drill holes to date, are summarized in the table below.

*CuEq%: Calculated using US$2.75/lb Cu, US$1,250/oz Au, and US$16/oz Ag, at 100% recoveries.

About Copper Mountain Mining Corporation:

Copper Mountain?s flagship asset is the Copper Mountain mine, located in southern British Columbia near the town of Princeton. The Company has a strategic alliance with Mitsubishi Materials Corporation who owns 25% of the mine. The Copper Mountain mine has a large resource of copper that remains open laterally and at depth. This significant exploration potential is being explored to maximize the property?s full development potential. Copper Mountain?s Cloncurry project in Queensland, Australia, includes the development-ready Eva Copper Project and an extensive exploration potential within the Company?s 379,000 hectare highly prospective land package within the Mount Isa area.
