VANCOUVER, Feb. 21, 2014 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (TSX: CUM) 
(the "Company" or "Copper Mountain") announces that construction of the new 
permanent secondary crusher at the Copper Mountain mine located in southern 
British Columbia is underway and on schedule.  The main components of the 
crusher have arrived in Canada at the port of Halifax where they were off 
loaded onto rail for transportation to Kamloops, BC where they will be 
transported by truck to the mine site.  This crusher will be the largest cone 
crusher installed in western Canada and initial foundation work is well 
underway and the mild west coast winter has greatly reduced the potential 
extra cost of heating and hording of concrete.  The general contractor, 
Gisbourne are now fully staffed and proceeding with construction as planned.  
The total cost of construction for the secondary crusher is estimated to be 
approximately $40 million and construction is expected to be complete by 
mid-summer.  Once installed, 100% of the mill feed will be sized to the 2 inch 
range. Plant operating results with minus 2 inch material has confirmed that 
the mill operates at its designed capacity of 35,000 tpd on a consistent basis.

tpd for the first six months of 2014 and 35,000 tpd after the new permanent 
crusher is operational. December and January operational results are in line 
with the production forecasts. Forecast average copper head grade and 
production for the year is approximately 0.375 % and 80 to 90 million pounds
