Logan Copper Inc.: Drill Program Update on Dansey Copper Prospect

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Oct. 19, 2010) - Logan Copper Inc. (the "Company" or "Logan"), (TSX VENTURE:LC) wishes to report that drilling on the "Dansey" copper property, contiguous to Teck Resources Ltd. "Highland Valley" producing copper mine, has intersected a copper-pyrite mineralized zone on all holes drilled to date on the property. 2010 drilling is proceeding on schedule, with two diamond drill holes completed at this time and a third hole currently being drilled for a total of up to 3000 metres of drilling this year. 2010 drilling and detailed ground geophysical programs on the "Dansey" property are designed to test the newly discovered "Northern" and "Midway" Anomalies discovered at depth below previous drilling in 2008.

A total of 300 drill core samples are currently at the laboratory undergoing a 32 element ICP and fire assay analysis. Geological and structural analysis is now underway on the "Dansey" property to complete a surface geological map. Drill holes from 2008-2009 are currently being re-logged and vertical sections will be created showing geological and mineralogical interpretations with the goal of the eventual identification of a resource. Field geophysical and geological field crews are expected to complete the 2010 "Dansey" drill program on or about November 30, 2010.

Logan Copper's President and CEO, Thal S. Poonian, stated "Drilling is moving forward on schedule and we are encouraged by the intersection of a copper-pyrite mineralized zone in all drill holes so far. Drill cores are currently undergoing a detailed analysis and assay results are expected to be available shortly. A comprehensive geological mapping and ground geophysical program is currently ongoing to provide additional insight on the property when combined with upcoming drill results."
