Centenario Copper Corporation Announces Date for Annual General Meeting

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 18, 2008) - Centenario Copper Corporation (TSX:CCT) announced today that the Company's Annual General Meeting of Shareholders will be held on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time at The National Club located at 303 Bay Street, Toronto, Ontario M5H 2R1.

About Centenario Copper Corporation:

The Company was founded in 2004 with the goal of becoming a mid-tier copper producer and consolidator, active in regions of low sovereign risk. Centenario currently operates exclusively in Regions II and III of Chile. The Company intends to achieve its goal through the acquisition and development of advanced, mid-sized copper projects and then enhancing the scale and value of its principal projects through the roll-up of smaller satellite copper resources, which exist regionally around the principal projects.

The Franke Property, located in Region II, is currently in construction and is projected to produce 30,000 tonnes of cathode copper per year, starting in December 2008. On the nearby Pelusa Property, a fast track evaluation of various copper targets is underway. The Company believes that the Pelusa Property is highly prospective for developing additional leachable copper resources and is evaluating possible production scenarios, including processing at the Franke plant. The Pan de Azucar Property, located 45 km. from the Franke Property, is currently being evaluated as a possible nucleus for a second property cluster. The Company continues to evaluate other "in region" clustering opportunities, which could reinforce its existing property portfolio.

Copies of NI 43-101 Technical Reports on the Franke Property and the Pelusa Property are posted on SEDAR and on the Company's web site.
