____Location of CNYC Project Area in Nevada____________Map of CNYC Claims: 1,353 mineral claims, 27,000+ acres
Identification 3 Primary Mining Zones: 1,353 mineral claims, 27,000+ acres
1. COPPER QUEEN - on the west.
Has no exposed mineralization at surface, but contains Cu sulfide skarn at depth and an incompletely confirmed Cu-molybdenum sulphide porphyry system at greater depth.
2. CHAMPION - in the center.
Numerous widespread exposures of copper skarn mineralization, both in surface outcrop and abundant old mine workings.
Picture of Copper Queen and Champion Mineralized Zones
3. LONGSHOT RIDGE - on the east.
Numerous widespread exposures of copper skarn mineralization, both in surface outcrop and abundant old mine workings.
Majority of recent exploration efforts have been focused on extensive oxide Cu skarn mineralization at this location.
Formation: The Cu mineralization and associated alternation here at Longshot are projects of an extensive Cu-rich skarn system formed in carbonaceous sediments of the Luning, Gabbs and Sunrise Formations. Small amounts of Cu occur also in stockwork veinlets in felsic porphyry intrusive sills and dikes. The Cu mineralization consists almost entirely of secondary copper minerals, principally malachite, axurite, chrysocalla, and copper wad, in order of abundance. Additionally, some Cu-rich limonite (goethite) has been reported.
Deposit centralization: About 90% of the Longshot mineralization is within the 2 upper units of the Gabbs Formation. Drilling reveals that the strongest, thickest, and most continuous mineralization occurs in a NE-trending zone, 200' W x 1300' L, which is crossed by 2 NW-trending structurally-controlled high-grade zones, each about 100' W and from 400-700' L.

2004 Drilling Results, Longshot Ridge
-- Completed 2 diamond drill holes on Longshot: Drill hole 04-01 intersected 193' of 0.547% Cu (from 20' - 213') including 50' of 0.827% Cu (from 80' - 130'). This hole ended in strong Cu mineralization.
-- Drill hole 04-03 was a vertical hole drilled to a depth of 43'. While drilling the hole, it was recognized that previousl drill holes in the vicinity had encountered significant mineralization at the contact of the overlying oxidized Gabbs Formation and the underlying Luning Formation, and this hole was extended to test this target. This drill hole (04-03) intersected 370' of 0.314% Cu (from 25' - 395') including 140' of 0.549% Cu (25' - 1.65'.) and 35' of 0.709% Cu (70' - 105').

Canyon Copper Corp. (the "Company") (OTCBB:CNYC) is pleased to announce that a Canadian National Instrument 43-101 report has been completed in which Giroux Consultants Ltd. estimated indicated and inferred resources on the Longshot Ridge copper skarn deposit at the New York Canyon Project. The New York Canyon Project is located in the Santa Fe Mining District, Mineral County, Nevada.
Highlights of the mineral estimate include:
- Indicated resources of 16,250,000 tons at an average grade of 0.43% Cu hosting 139,750,000 pounds of Cu, based on a Cu cut-off grade of 0.20%.
- Inferred resources of 2,900,000 tons at an average grade of 0.31% Cu hosting 18,210,000 pounds of Cu, based on a Cu cut-off grade of 0.20%.
Anthony Harvey, CEO and President of the Company, comments "We are extremely pleased to complete this mineral resource estimate on the Longshot Ridge copper skarn deposit. In order to continue moving forward on the New York Canyon Project, we will focus on upgrading and expanding our resources and re-analyzing samples from our 2006 drill program on Longshot Ridge."
Mineral Resource Estimate
The mineral resource estimate is based on 58 historical drill holes and 38 drill holes completed by the Company during the period from 2004 to 2005. This data was complemented with samples from 34 surface trenches and road cuts obtained from Longshot Ridge by previous exploration operators. The mineral resource estimate did not incorporate a further 33 drill holes (7 HQ diamond drill holes and 26 reverse circular holes) completed by the Company in 2006. The Company's consulting geologists have recommended that the 2006 drilling program be re-assayed prior to being incorporated into a mineral resource estimate.
