Copper One Identifies High Priority Targets at the Riviere Dore Property

  • 42 Conductive Target Zones Identified
    • 75.8 kilometers of conductive zones
  • 9 High Priority Target Zones Identified
    • 24.8 kilometers of high priority conductive Zones
  • Detailed interpretive process has begun
    • Drill target prioritization in process

Vancouver, British Columbia, March 15, 2011, Copper One Inc. (TSX-V: CUO) ("Copper One" or the "Company") is pleased to report that Condor Consulting Inc., ("Condor") has outlined 42 Conductive Target Zones ("CTZ") on the Rivière Dore copper and nickel property (the "Property") located south-east of the town of Val-d'Or in the province of Quebec. The work has confirmed prominent conductors in association with known surface mineralization and will be instrumental in developing the first drill program on the property.

Condor's preliminary prioritization and interpretation of the Rivière Dore geophysical data led to identification of 42 distinct Conductive Target Zones (CTZ). The CTZ range from a few hundred meters to 7,000 meters in length and span the entire property area for a cumulative of 75.8 kilometers of conductive zones. Nine (9) targets are rated as high priority due to their close association with the recent surface discoveries and geochemical (till and bedrock) anomalies. The nine (9) priority CTZ provide a cumulative of 24.8 kilometers of conductors with varying magnetic settings. A detailed interpretative processing of the individual anomalies within the nine (9) priority CTZ has begun in order to prioritize detailed drill targets.

Line-cutting on three select areas has commenced to support ground geophysical surveys.

The remaining target areas are situated in parts of the property where the team has not conducted any field sampling. The exploration plan for these areas includes systematic reconnaissance mapping and sampling and geochemical surveys. The exploration plan aims to identify the best drill targets for massive copper-nickel sulphides associated with the large layered mafic intrusion.

"This targeting work is significant in that it will focus the team on the best areas for near term discovery," commented Alan Edwards, President and CEO of Copper One. "It helps us break down this exceptionally large property into smaller typical project- scale plays."
