Copper Mountain Mining (CMMC) has reported the assay results from five diamond drill-holes completed below Pit 3 and in the Saddle Zone of the Copper Mountain project in Canada.

Two deep holes (>1,000m) were completed below the Pit 3 area and three holes are in the Saddle Zone.

Deep drilling below Pit 3 was designed to follow up on the 2008 drilling results in hole 08P3-08, which intersected 292m grading 0.55% Cu, 2.23g/t Ag and 0.14g/t Au.

Drill-hole 10P3-60 was recently drilled from a collar just to the south of the 08P3-08 collar with a slightly steeper dip and angled in a more southerly direction, resulting in sub-parallel hole to 08P3-08 but 120m deeper and 100m further to the south.

10P3-61 intersected 94.0m grading 0.72% Cu, 2.77g/t Ag and 0.11g/t Au, approximately 80m below the historical underground workings.

The company said that current drilling targeted the part of the Saddle Zone between Pits 2 and 1 that is not included in the current mine plan because of insufficient drill information.

Drill holes 10SD-60 and 10SD-61 intersected mineralization within an area classified as waste and consequently excluded from the mine plan.

Drill-hole 10SD-62 returned a near surface intersection that will upgrade the reserves within the current mine plan area.
