Global Copper Intersects 246 Meters Grading 0.84% Copper Equivalent in Step-Out Drilling in the Las Guias Zone at Relincho, Chile

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 11, 2007) - Global Copper Corp. ("Global") (TSX:GLQ) is pleased to announce results from 11 additional holes in the sulphide drilling program at its Relincho copper-molybdenum project in Chile. The holes were all drilled in the Las Guias area. Results are highlighted by step-out hole RG06-202 that intersected 246 meters grading 0.38% copper and 0.051% molybdenum (0.85% copper equivalent(ii)) including 34 meters grading 0.88% copper and 0.117% molybdenum (1.50% copper equivalent(ii)).

Hole RG 06-202 extends the Las Guias zone to the south at depth. The holes represents a 50 meters step-out to the south of the area between holes RG 06-196 (reported below) and RG 06-189 which intersected 255 meters from 364 meters grading 0.67% copper and 0.057% molybdenum (1.01% copper equivalent(ii)) including 26 meters from 574 meters grading 1.46% copper and 0.125% molybdenum (2.22% copper equivalent(ii)).

These results show that there is continuity of higher grade copper and molybdenum mineralization at depth at Las Guias. Further step-out drilling is planned to investigate the size and extent of this zone of higher grade mineralization and to determine if it continues southeast towards the previously drilled Marja zone.

To date, 62 holes totaling 30,727 meters have been completed in the sulphide drill program. In June a third rig was mobilized to the project and the program is now forecast to continue until at least November 2007. On completion of the drill program the current NI 43-101 sulphide mineral resource estimate will be updated to include the results of the sulphide drill program.

(i) Diamond drill holes have been drilled from the bottom of previously
drilled RC holes (pre-collars). For that reason the number of
the pre-collar is not the actual order in which these holes were
drilled as part of the sulphide program. The first column
indicates the sequence in which the sulphide holes were drilled.
(ii) Copper equivalent is calculated for primary intervals using
US$1.00/lb Cu and US$6.00/lb Mo and is not adjusted for
metallurgical recoveries as these remain uncertain. The formula
used is as follows: CuEQ equals Cu% + (Mo% x 6)

Leo Hathaway, P.Geo., is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 for the Relincho Project. The quality assurance/quality control program is monitored by independent consultant Dr. Bruce M. Davis, Chief Geostatistician for Norwest Corporation and managed on site by Patricio Valenzuela, a Chilean geologist with over 24 years of experience. Logging and sampling are completed at Global's secure facility located at the project. The drill cores are mechanically split on site and samples securely transported to the ACME's facilities in Santiago, Chile for sample preparation and analysis. Total copper content is determined by three-acid digestion with atomic absorption finish. Global inserts standards, blanks and duplicates selected on a random basis into the sample stream and sends 5% of the sample pulps to check laboratories in Santiago, Chile.
