Superior Copper Project Update

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Nov. 10, 2014) - Superior Copper Corp (TSX VENTURE:SPC) (the "Company") is pleased to provide shareholders with an update on its regional exploration drill program at its wholly owned Superior Project. The Superior Project is located 85km North of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario on the eastern shore of Lake Superior.


  • Mineralization sampled in 8 of 8 completed drill holes.
  • 2 of 6 tested targets warrant follow up exploration.

The objective of the 2014 exploration program was to drill test targets indicated by favorable geophysical anomalies and management has been encouraged with the results to date. Follow up exploration targets will be considered once all results have been returned and reviewed by the Company's geologists. The Company is fully financed to continue and complete its 2015 exploration budget.

The Company has drilled a total of 11,992m to date and taken 2,001 samples, amounting to roughly 26% of the project budget. Eight diamond drill holes have been completed testing six of the initial eleven targets. Two drill holes are currently in progress, and one drill hole will be returned to after it was delayed due to a water shortage earlier in the summer.

Assays have been returned for four of the eight complete holes. Visible mineralization and anomalous copper values have occurred in all drill holes completed to date.

The most significant mineralization was discovered in SPC-14-01 at the 3M Zone (see the Company's Press Release dated September 18, 2014). Superior Copper geologists have followed up this discovery with and induced polarization survey ("IP") and mapping. Follow up drill targets will be selected once the Company geologists have compiled and analyzed the data.

Also of significance, the Company intersected a zone of fracture controlled chalcopyrite-bornite mineralization in hole SPC-14-06 that returned 0.12% copper over 80m (see Table 2). Mineralization occurred in an intermediate porphyry dike and surrounding mafic volcanics.
