GOGEBIC COUNTY — Mineral exploration continues in the western U.P.

Highland Copper recently announced that a technical report has been filed supporting the results of their mineral resource estimate at the Copperwood Project in Gogebic County. That estimate showed that Copperwood contains over one billion pounds of copper and over four million ounces of silver categorized as measured and indicated resources.

In addition to Copperwood, Highland is assessing the development of White Pine North and a site in the Keweenaw. They plan to publish a pre-feasibility study later this year.

The technical report is available at www.sedar.com and on Highland Copper’s website
