Cascadero Copper Corporation: Fin Area Returns Copper, Zinc and Molybdenum Values

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 21, 2005) - Cascadero Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE:CCD) -

The 2005 exploration program included detailed geological mapping, prospecting and diamond drilling of 1,892 metres of NQTK core in 8 holes spaced at roughly 125 metre centres on two lines 350 metres apart. The holes were inclined at -50 degrees to -75 degrees to the northwest or southeast to cross-cut the steeply dipping fracture sets mapped on surface. Core holes F05-03 and F05-04 encountered elevated levels of copper and zinc over thick intervals. The other 6 holes are reported in the Table below yielded copper, zinc and molybdenite over similar intervals indicating the presence of a large low-grade mineralizing system in a previously undrilled area.

The Fin Prospect is 100% owned by Cascadero Copper and is subject to a net smelter return royalty in favour of Electrum Resource Corp. The property is the centre portion of the Pine-Fin-Tree porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold deposits in the Toodoggone area in north central BC. These three mineral deposits are hosted by Jurassic aged monzonite-hornblende monzonite intrusive rocks with associated syn- and post-mineral dykes.

Assaying was conducted by Eco-Tech of Kamloops, BC. All assays are 30-gram fire assays with 28-element ICP. Field work was under the direction of by Dave Kuran, P. Geo., who also compiled and interpreted the data and who is the qualified person for the Company.
