Nevada Copper – Intersects 51.6 meters of 2.54% Copper

Friday, July 27th, 2007

Nevada Copper Corp. is pleased to announce additional high grade copper results from on-going drilling at its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow Copper Development Property located in Nevada. Drilling continues to demonstrate the continuity of mineralization, in addition to expanding the significant copper resources of both the East and North deposits.
NC07-14 drilled as an infill hole in the East Deposit was located 50 meters (165 ft) from the nearest mineralized intercept and encountered several high grade copper zones. The largest of these zones intersected 51.6 meters (169.2 ft) averaging 2.54 % copper, 0.181 g/t gold, 5.8 g/t silver, and 29.5% iron. NC07-14 offset the mineralization in nearby KM-20 (33.8 meters averaging 3.31 % copper and 8.5 meters averaging 3.89% copper).
NC07-15 drilled in the open pittable North Deposit, was designed to infill an area where drilling was wide spaced and assay data was lacking. The drill hole established good continuity and encountered several large zones of open pit grade mineralization. The two largest zones in NC07-15 intersected 30.5 meters (100 ft) averaging 0.99% copper and 35.0 meters (115 ft) averaging 0.87% copper.
A plan map and cross sections for the deposits are available at www.nevadacopper.com. Drill results announced here represent true thicknesses.

E-2 Deposit – Assays greater than 1.0% Cu
Drill Hole NC07-16, No mineralization > 1.0% Cu Intersected
Hole NC07-16 was drilled along the eastern edge of the E-2 deposit and bounded mineralization.
Over 18,000 meters of drilling is planned in the recently expanded program. To date 33 holes have been drilled for a total of 17,000 meters. Of the holes drilled, results from 22 have been released to date. Future drilling results will be released as they become available.
