VANCOUVER, April 9, 2014 /CNW/ - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (TSX: CUM) 
(the "Company" or "Copper Mountain") announces production results for the 
first quarter of 2014 from the Copper Mountain mine located in southern 
British Columbia. 
In the first three months of 2014 the mine shipped 39,000 wmt of concentrate, 
an increase of 9% over the prior quarter.  The shipments contained 
approximately 19.7 million pounds of copper, 6,500 ounces of gold, and 98,600 
ounces of silver generating an estimated $69.6 million in gross revenue. 
Copper production for the first quarter of 2014 totaled 19.1 million pounds of 
copper, a 34% increase as compared to the first quarter of 2013, setting a new 
production record for the mine.  The concentrate also included 5,400 ounces of 
gold and 105,300 ounces of silver.  During the quarter the mill processed a 
total of 2.6 million tonnes of ore at an average grade of 0.394 % Copper. 
SAG Mill throughput was improved during the quarter as a result of adding the 
third portable crusher late last year.  Copper production during the quarter 
was in line with guidance, despite some unscheduled down time in March 
resulting from a ball mill transformer failure.  Mill crews completed repairs 
in a timely manner.  During the quarter the mill averaged 91% availability. 
Mining activities continued to shift more towards Pit 3 during the quarter and 
mining in the Pit 2 area shifted more towards the southwest end of the Pit.  
During the quarter a total of 13.6 million tonnes of material was mined, 
including 4.1 million tonnes of ore and 9.5 million tonnes of waste. The 
projected life of mine strip ratio is 2 to 1 but higher in the early years.  
The mine moved an average of approximately 160,000 tonnes of material per day.
