TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 18, 2015) - Copper One Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CUO) ("Copper One" or the "Company") has entered into settlement agreements (the "Settlement Agreements") with various creditors of the Company whereby Copper One would issue common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.05 per common share representing a partial settlement of the amounts owing to such creditors (the "Shares for Debt Settlement").
