Vancouver, B.C., February 16, 2010, Copper One Inc. ("Copper One"; TSX-V: CUO) is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced on its Twin Peaks oxide copper prospect, located near Wickenburg, Arizona. Up to 30 reverse circulation holes will be drilled to an average depth of 175 meters at an initial spacing of 125 meters between holes.
The Twin Peaks drilling targets a known oxide copper mineralized zone covering more than 1.5 square kilometers. Mineralization occurs in a potassic-altered quartz monzonite and consists dominantly of chyrsocolla.
The oxide copper mineralization is amenable to lower-cost SX-EW (solvent extraction- electrowinning) processing as indicated by historic acid-soluble copper assays.
