VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 29, 2007) - Sherwood Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SWC) is pleased to announce that the company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Stephen Quin, will be interviewed on Business News Network ("BNN") on Tuesday, October 30, 2007.

"Having declared commercial production at the high grade Minto copper-gold mine on October 1, 2007, just over two years from acquiring the undeveloped project, we welcome the opportunity to share our story on this widely watched news program," said Stephen P. Quin, President & CEO of Sherwood Copper. "The Minto mine is Canada's newest base metals mine and the first in the Yukon in several years, representing a major milestone for both Sherwood Copper and the Yukon Territory," said Mr. Quin. "BNN is a leading financial news television service that reaches a wide audience in the investment community and provides us with an exceptional platform to tell this exciting story."

Mr. Quin will be a guest on BNN's Power Breakfast segment to discuss Sherwood Copper's high grade Minto copper-gold mine. The segment will air live on October 30, 2007 at 8:50 a.m. ET and will be repeated at 10:50 a.m. ET.

Minto Project

The Minto Mine is a high-grade open pit copper-gold deposit located in the Yukon Territory of Canada. Sherwood acquired the Minto project in June 2005 and, in just two years from acquisition, re-drilled the deposit to modern reserve standards, completed a bankable feasibility study, arranged project financing, and built a $100 million open pit copper-gold mine. Commercial production commenced on October 1, 2007. In parallel with its operating activities, Sherwood has been running an exceptionally successful 2007 exploration program that has resulted in multiple discoveries of high grade copper-gold mineralization across its Minto Mine property.

Sherwood

Sherwood's successful consolidation of the ownership of the Minto Project provides a unique investment opportunity - participation in a fully permitted, operating, high-grade, open pit copper-gold mine located in Canada with tremendous exploration potential on the 100% owned property.
