Logan Completes 2010 Drilling and Extensive Field Work Programs

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2010) - Logan Copper Inc. (the "Company" or "Logan"), (TSX VENTURE:LC) announces it has successfully completed the 2010 stepped-up geological mapping, ground geophysical evaluation and diamond drilling on its Dansey, Midway and Lost Mine (Bertha Molly) showings. These prospects are all located on Logan's central BC copper property, contiguous to Teck Resources Ltd.'s "Highland Valley" copper mine, currently Canada's largest actively producing copper mine. Logan Copper's property consists of 136 mineral claims for a total of 135,935 acres. High priority sections of drill core have been cut and logged and are currently being assayed. Assay results are expected to be available shortly.

Logan Copper's President and CEO, Thal S. Poonian, stated "We are pleased to have successfully completed our 2010 diamond drilling and field work programs next to Teck Resources Ltd.'s producing "Highland Valley" copper mine in central BC. Not only have we completed over 1200 metres of drilling this year, to test several newly identified anomalies, but we have also conducted over 60 line kilometers of ground geophysics. Assay results are expected to be available shortly, once the technical information has been reviewed by the program Geologist."

During the 3 month 2010 field season, Terry Garrow, P. Geo. and a technical crew of 8 focused on developing strong exploration models for the geology and mineralization on the property. Approximately 60 line kilometers of ground geophysics, utilizing accurate GPS location with Proton Magnetometer and VLF-EM readings every 25 meters, showed a clear picture of the structural geology in relation to known and newly discovered mineralized showings. This geophysical approach clearly locates anomalies that will be evaluated over the winter with the best anomalies scheduled for drilling in 2011.

Diamond drilling on existing showings of the Dansey and Midway area was continued this season with an additional 5 drill holes completed for a total of 1,230 meters. Diamond drilling has been completed for 2010; however, winter conditions put an end to operations for this year. One drill hole remains to be logged and sampled for assay, while a second hole requires sampling and assaying in order to complete this year's fieldwork. This work will be completed pending the appropriate weather.

1,213 drill core samples have been submitted to Pioneer Laboratories and are undergoing a 32 element ICP analyses. All of the samples are expected to be assayed within the next 3 weeks. Results will be announced once technical information has been reviewed and a report compiled by Mr. Garrow, P. Geo., the program Geologist, has been received by the Company.

Logan Copper is confident that the exploration goals for 2010, which were completed as planned, have established a solid exploration base, with cost effective exploration methods and the ultimate goal of identifying a mineral resource on this property. The 2010 exploration data base and reports will be completed in the coming weeks and planning for the 2011 exploration field season will get underway.

Terry Garrow, P.Geo., a Qualified Person by the standards of National Instrument 43-101 has reviewed the results obtained and approved the contents of this news release.
