Kombat Copper Announces Surface Drill Program at the Kombat Mine

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 26, 2015) - Kombat Copper Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KBT) ("Kombat" or the "Company") is preparing for a surface drill program at the Kombat Mine property, expected to commence in mid-March 2015. The program will begin a renewed focus on defining a near-surface mineral resource to support an open pit scenario that would allow a fast track to production.

The program includes a 2,000 metre diamond drill campaign targeting the area surrounding the #1 and the #3 Shafts, which were the primary access points for the historic Kombat Mine (see Figure 1). Past production from the mine over a 45 year period was 12.46 million tonnes grading 2.62% Cu and 18.0g/t Ag.

Kombat Copper has enlisted the services of a reputable Namibian-based drill contractor to complete the drilling activities.

"There is evidence from past drilling and established underground workings in the area to be tested by this drilling that supports the concept of a potentially significant near-surface mineral resource that could be mined by open pit." stated Bill Nielsen, President and CEO of Kombat Copper. "This initial drill program's objective is to establish the style and structural emplacement of mineralization in several prioritized areas. Additional drilling will be required to attain a sufficient density to calculate a compliant mineral resource estimate. The Company is greatly encouraged that recent compilation work and consultation with past mine staff has provided this opportunity to define near-surface mineral resources that could be fast tracked to production."
