Crew Mobilized to the Lorraine Copper-Gold Property, BC – Drilling To Start in Early July
Vancouver, BC — Lorraine Copper Corp. (“Lorraine Copper”) (TSX-V: LLC) is pleased to announce the start of the 2008 exploration program at the Lorraine project, which is being run by Teck Cominco Limited (“Teck Cominco”) (TSX: TCK.B) under a Participation Agreement with Lorraine Copper. The Lorraine property is located in the Omineca region approximately 250 kilometres northwest of the city of Prince George, British Columbia. Camp set up is nearly complete and additional crews are scheduled to arrive shortly to begin this year’s drill program.

Teck Cominco has informed the company that it will be conducting an approximately 7,000 metre drill program to test a number of targets that were outlined in last year’s geological, geochemical and Induced Polarization (IP) geophysical survey. The IP survey covered an area of approximately 14 kilometres by five kilometres and was capable of investigating to depths of up to 400 metres. The 2007 program has resulted in several known targets being significantly extended along strike and to depth and identification of several new targets.

Mineralization on the Lorraine property is mainly alkalic intrusion related and belongs to a deposit style that includes the Galore Creek deposit of Teck Cominco and NovaGold Resources (TSX: NG). Other significant alkalic deposits in British Columbia include the Mt. Polley, Afton and Copper Mountain Mines.

The Lorraine property is located in an area of active logging and is well served by resource infrastructure including all season roads, the Kemess power corridor to the northeast and the Canadian National Railway line to the southwest.

Teck Cominco is earning a 51% interest in the Jajay-Lorraine project by spending $9 million by 2011, and may earn up to a 65% interest by completing a feasibility study and arranging project financing. Teck Cominco has incurred exploration expenditures of approximately $5.8 million to date.
