Nevada Copper Intersects

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Sep 08 (MARKET WIRE) --

Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) ("Nevada Copper") announces positive drill
results at the 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow Property located in Nevada. The
following drilling results are from the open pittable North Deposit. To
date, results from 68 of an estimated 83 drill holes to be drilled have
been reported.

 NC10-62 was drilled to follow up the recently discovered mineralization
in NC10-31 and NC10-52 located in the southwestern portion of the open
pittable North Deposit. NC10-62 intersected 1,258.5 feet (383.6 meters)
of 0.58% copper in four separate zones. The largest of the zones
intersected 751.5 feet (229.1 meters) averaging 0.59% copper. This zone
included a higher grade interval of 95 feet (28.9 meters) averaging 1.51%
copper. The mineralization remains open and follow up drilling is
currently in progress.

Drilling along the northern edge of the North Deposit also continues to
produce positive results. Holes NC10-59 and NC10-60 have expanded the
mineralization and confirmed continuity. NC10-59 intersected 110 feet
(33.5 meters) 21.5 meters true thickness averaging 1.96% copper. The
mineralization remains open in the north central and northeastern
portions of the North Deposit. NC10-51 drilled as a step-out has defined
the western edge of the deposit.

 "We are extremely pleased with the success of the drilling program in the
North Deposit. The expansion of mineralization will have a positive
impact on both the resource and project economics. Follow up drilling has
commenced in order to determine the extent of this recently discovered
mineralization which remains open," commented Gregory French, Vice
President, Senior Project Manager of Nevada Copper.
