TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Jan. 13, 2016) – Superior Copper Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SPC) announces that recent drilling, initiated on November 16, 2015, supports the proposed structural model at its 100% held Superior Project, located on the Trans-Canada Highway 85 kilometers north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

Multiple zones of open-space, quartz-carbonate veins were intersected at angles that agree with the proposed model in all three of the completed holes. In addition, several veins of other types were intersected at similar angles. More work is needed to confirm the nature and distribution of each vein type; however, the Company is encouraged by this preliminary technical success.

The characteristics of the structures intersected in this program are similar to known copper occurrences on the property and may represent a barren zone of the same system. Many significant deposits, including Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold type (IOCG), are known to have associated carbonate veins occurring over a large footprint relative to the mineralized zones.

Drilling has been put on hold as no significant assays were returned. Going forward, the Company is considering options to delineate more favorable zones.

Technical information contained within this release has been reviewed and approved by Morgan Quinn, P. Geo. who is a “Qualified Person” under National Instrument 43-101 and a consultant to Superior Copper Corporation.
