Copper Mountain Updates Construction Progress on Secondary Crusher

Copper Mountain Updates Construction Progress on Secondary Crusher 
Web Site:
VANCOUVER, March 25, 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 continues to move forward as planned and on 
schedule.  Purchase orders for all of the major mechanical and electrical 
components have been placed.  The main components of the crusher have arrived 
in Canada and have been transported via rail to Kamloops, BC where they are 
being prepared for transportation by a specialized truck to the mine site.  
The lower bowl assembly is the largest component piece of the crusher and 
weighs over 100 tonnes.  Due to its size and weight special road permits were 
provided by the Department of Transportation in a timely manner to meet the 
schedule for the highway transportation to the mine site. These permits were 
received early last week and the lower bowl assembly has now been transported 
to the mine site.  The Company engaged Nickel Bros Heavy Lifting and 
Transportation to complete this leg of the transportation which entailed 
closing the main highway between Kamloops and Princeton in 20km sections as 
the convoy moved down the road.  It took four nights to make the 200 kilometer 
trip, because the transportation had to occur between midnight and 5 am each 
night to minimize traffic disruptions along the route. 
This crusher will be the largest cone crusher installed in western Canada and 
has the ability to crush the 6 inch rock from the primary crusher down to 2 
inches in size. The new crushing facility is designed to operate at a rate of 
2,800 tpoh and is designed to meet the most demanding and high tonnage 
applications.  Foundation work for the Crusher Slab is complete and it is 
being prepared for placement of the newly arrived lower bowl assembly.  Once 
the lower bowl assembly is installed, building contractors will be mobilized 
to start the building erection. Following the building erection, the new 
conveyor system installation will commence in the spring time.  The total cost 
of construction for the secondary crusher facility is estimated to be $40 
million and construction is expected to be completed by mid-summer.  Once 
installed, 100% of the mill feed will be sized to the 2 inch range, which will 
allow the mill to operate consistently at or above design capacity rates of 
35,000 tpd. 
The short term mitigating measures implemented in 2013 to increase mill 
throughput continue to be successful with January and February's operational 
results being in line with the production expectations.
