Supreme Drilling Encounters Sulphide Mineralization

COQUITLAM, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 23, 2010) - SUPREME RESOURCES LTD. (TSX VENTURE:SPR) (OTCBB:SPRWF) (the "Company") is pleased to announce the completion of the first three drill holes at the Verde project that contain fine-grained sulphide mineralization. The drilling is designed to test the copper-silver-gold mineralization exposed in trench 1 at the Verde project. To date, 260 metres of a 500 metre program have been completed.

The Verde project is located 14 kilometres south of Princeton, British Columbia and adjacent to the east of the holdings of Copper Mountain Mining Corporation's Copper Mountain mine. The current 2010 measured and indicated resources at the Copper Mountain mine are 518.6 million tons of 0.31% Cu containing 3.2 billion pounds of copper with gold-silver credits. The Copper Mountain mine is 75 percent owned by Copper Mountain Mining Corporation and 25 per cent owned by Mitsubishi Materials Corporation. The construction of the Copper Mountain mine is on schedule for full production in June of 2011.

The Verde trench 1 sampling returned over a 14.5 metre interval grades averaging 0.34% copper, 4.54 grams/tonne silver and 0.032 gram/tonne gold, including 9 metres averaging 0.49% copper, 6.86 grams/tonne silver and 0.046 grams/tonne gold as previously disclosed in the Company's press release dated April 7, 2010. Malachite, limonite, chalcopyrite and magnetite occur along fractures and as disseminations within moderately fractured diorite of the Voigt stock.

The drill hole data is as follows:

Drill Hole Easting Northing Zone Elevation (metres asl ) Azimuth Inclination EOH (metres )
V10-01 682757 5470399 10N 1119   214 -65 122.53  
V10-02 682762 5470398 10N 1119   186 -61 51.56  
V10-03 682766 5470398 10N 1119   170 -61 85.95  

Drill hole V10-01 has been logged and sampled, and the samples submitted to Eco Tech Laboratory Limited of Kamloops, BC for analysis. Logging and sampling of drill holes V10-02 and V10-03 is in progress.

Grant F. Crooker, P.Geo. (geologist) is the qualified person as defined by national Instrument 43-101 who supervised the preparation and verification of the technical information in this release.

Upon completion of the Verde drilling program, crews and drillers will be mobilized to the Company's TAS North Project, which is located less than 1 km in distance and borders Copper Mountain Mining Corporation's Oriole Area.

In 2008, Copper Mountain Mining Corp. reported that from the Oriole Area, drill hole CM08OL-17 intersected 119 feet (36.3 m) grading 2.10% Cu, 0.10 g/t Au, and 22.7 g/t Ag (2.31% Cu Equiv.).

August 5, 2010 Copper Mountain Mining Corp. announced a two phased 10,000 meter drill program to provide more drill information for detailed mine design and to upgrade the mine optimization in the Oriole Area and Pit 2 Area (see news at http//

Diamond drilling should begin on the TAS North Project in approximately two weeks.
