ASX Announcement

4th August 2009 ASX Code: COY

NON-RENOUNCEABLE RIGHTS ISSUE


Coppermoly Limited (Coppermoly) is pleased to announce that it has lodged a prospectus with ASIC and ASX for a non-renounceable rights issue (Rights Issue) on the basis of 1 New Share for every 2 Existing Shares held on the Record Date at a price of 5 cents each, with 1 free-attaching New Option for every 2 New Shares subscribed for (with an exercise price of 7 cents, exercisable on or before 1 December 2011).

The maximum number of New Shares which may be issued under the Rights Issue is 41,007,644 to raise up to $2,050,382 (before the costs of the Rights Issue).

Coppermoly is undertaking the Rights Issue to provide working capital to undertake:

- Further drilling at the Nakru-1 and Nakru-2 prospects. The Nakru project is a very significant and sought after discovery with high grade copper intersected near surface. Drilling will test the extent of this mineralisation and associated Induced Polarisation geophysical anomalies leading to a resource estimation. Further geophysical surveys are planned to test sub-surface mineralisation potential of areas surrounding these prospects;

- Additional drilling is planned at Simuku to enable a resource estimate of supergene (near surface enriched) secondary copper mineralisation prior to undertaking feasibility studies. Separate near surface molybdenum targets will also be drill tested at the Horseshoe Prospect; and

- Evaluation and possible acquisition of other copper-gold projects.

Nakru and Simuku are advanced copper-molybdenum-gold projects. Further drilling will enable the Company to add to their value and progress them to a stage of feasibility. Our projects are accessible by vehicle from the Provincial capital of Kimbe which has an operating deep water port and a nearby regional airport with daily flight access to Sydney via Port Moresby.

The Rights Issue is not being underwritten.
