Copper One Intersects 1 Meter of 2,460 g/t Silver and 1.54% Tungsten at Queylus Project, Quebec, Canada

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2013) - Copper One Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CUO) (the "Company" or "Copper One") is pleased to announce the results for the Fall of 2012 diamond drilling program for its 100% owned Queylus Property, just outside of the town of Chibougamau, Quebec, Canada. The goal of the Fall 2012 drilling program was to test several coincident induced polarization ("IP") and magnetic anomalies that were previously outlined during the Summer and Fall 2012, for copper and precious metals. A total of 4,002 m of diamond drilling from 17 NQ size holes was performed by a local contractor, Forages Chibougamau of Chibougamau, Quebec.

The results show multiple disseminated copper intersections that warrant more detailed exploration. As well, one of the drill holes, QU-12-2, has intersected 1 meter of 2,460 g/t native silver and 1.54% tungsten within a tonalitic breccia. The QU-12-02 drill hole is approximately 200 metres east of hole QU-12-01 and 400 metres west of hole QU-12-13 in a new structure also requiring further exploration.

The best intersections from the 2012 diamond drilling campaign on the Queylus Property are as follows:

True widths of the reported core intersections are not known, but are estimated to be 70% of these intervals.

Benoit Moreau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Copper One, stated: "In addition to the information gathered about the copper mineralizations, the drill program identified a new silver and tungsten intersection at Queylus. Interpreted data from detailed magnetic and deep penetration IP surveys will be available soon and help to track the orientation and the continuity of this silver and tungsten horizon that may be related to copper mineralizations. Beyond the Queylus Property, Copper One continues its efforts to advance its 100% owned flagship Rivière Doré Property, south of Val-d'Or, Québec."

Quality Assurance/Quality Control

The Queylus exploration program has been conducted under the supervision of Mr. Roger Moar, project geologist for Copper One and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101. Copper One has implemented and adheres to a strict Quality Assurance/Quality Control program which includes mineralized standards and blanks for each batch of samples (averaging 1 for every 25). A total of 1,063 samples of length varying from 0.30 to 1.70 meters were sent for assays from drill core sawed in half with one half sent to la Table Jamésienne de Concertation Minière, an independent preparation facility in Chibougamau, Quebec certified for preparation and the other half retained for future reference. Pulps were sent to ALS Chemex, an independent laboratory, of Val-d'Or, Quebec certified for assay.

Samples were assayed for gold by fire assay with atomic absorption spectroscopy finish and all other elements used induced coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy (ICP-AES). High grade silver assays were checked using fire assay with gravimetric finish. Quality control procedures consisted of 3 standards and 1 blank samples inserted every 100 samples.
