Supreme Resources Samples 9 Metres of 0.49% Cu at the Verde Project in the Copper Mountain Mining Camp of British Columbia

COQUITLAM, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 7, 2010) - Supreme Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:SPR) (OTCBB:SPRWF) is pleased to announce the results of rock sampling from the Main showing at the Verde copper-silver-gold project located in the Copper Mountain mining camp. Chip samples were taken at one to two metre intervals over a strike length of 39 metres along an old trench exposing copper mineralization. Malachite, chalcopyrite and magnetite occur along fractures within moderately fractured diorite of the Voigt stock of the Copper Mountain intrusions. Lesser chalcopyrite occurs as fine disseminations within the diorite. Two narrow Mine dykes (1.3 and 3.3 metres wide) cut the diorite.

The strongest copper-silver-gold mineralization occurs over the first 14.5 metres (0-14.5 metres) and the last 3 metres (36-39 metres) of the trench. The section from 0 to 14.5 metres gave 0.34% copper, 4.54 grams/tonne silver and 0.032 gram/tonne gold, including 9 metres (2-11 metres) of 0.49% copper, 6.86 grams/tonne silver and 0.046 gram/tonne gold. The section from 36 to 39 metres gave 0.43% copper, 4.5 grams/tonne silver and 0.138 gram/tonne gold, including 1 metre (36-37 metres) of 0.54% copper, 4.1 grams/tonne silver and 0.235 gram/tonne gold. The samples taken from the remainder of the trench also gave anomalous copper (0.06-0.34%), silver (0.3-3.2 grams/tonne) and gold (< 5-90 ppb) values.

Two 1.4 metre wide chip samples taken from hand dug pits 12 metres south of the Main showing also gave anomalous copper (0.55 and 0.24%), silver (10.0 and 4.0 grams/tonne) and gold (0.250 and 0.235 gram/tonne) values.

Supreme is encouraged that anomalous copper, silver and gold values are found over the entire 39 metre length of the trench at the Main showing. The presence of up to 0.25 gram/tonne gold is especially encouraging, as it indicates the copper mineralizing system at the Verde showing is gold-bearing.

The Verde project is located 14 kilometres south of Princeton, B.C. and is bounded on the west and south by Copper Mountain Mining Corporation which is scheduled to resume production in 2011.

Eco Tech Laboratory Ltd. of Kamloops, B.C., an accredited laboratory and subsidiary of Alex Stewart Group Ltd. conducted the sample preparation and analysis. The sample analysis for gold was 30 gram fire assay geochem/A.A. finish, and 33 multi-element ICP analysis, aqua regia digestion, AES finish. The sample stream was subject to check analysis on repeat and re-split samples.

Further news will be forthcoming in the near future.
