MetroActive is organizing the first annual Let’s Build a Mine event in Toronto’s Financial District (at The Exchange Tower (Akco Lounge on the concourse level) – 130 King Street West, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) in the month leading up to PDAC 2012 (Prospectors and Developers Annual Conference).

The event will bring together mining and exploration companies, deal-makers, investors, and industry suppliers for an evening of networking among Toronto’s most active business professionals and investors.

Mining and exploration companies, as well as industry suppliers can get a head start on the 2012 investment season, ahead of PDAC and give first access to anxious investors looking for good plays. The reach of this program goes beyond the old, regulars in the industry and taps into many of the fringe individuals anxious to invest their money and are waiting to be approached with opportunities.

Join our MetroActive hosts and members for an evening focused on discovering and discussing Bay Street investment opportunities from brownfield exploration to post-IPO and established stocks. Take advantage of individual business introductions, socializing, and networking with the heads of some of Bay Street’s Mineral and Resource companies.  Enjoy the expertise of industry movers and shakers and uncover investment opportunities often only reserved for qualified investors, in a friendly social environment.

The evening will begin by focusing on business networking and information exchange and will later evolve into a more casual and relaxed atmosphere.

During the evening there will be an ongoing auction for ‘Panning for Gold’ a painting created by the talented Canadian contemporary artist Lisa Cripps, President of Capital Transfer Agency Inc and who’s paintings can be found on the walls of many Bay Street offices. You can bid for this painting online before the event. Proceeds from auction towards The Townships Project –

WESTERN COPPER ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT RESOURCE INCREASE AT CASINO

November 1, 2010 – News Release 13

WESTERN COPPER ANNOUNCES SIGNIFICANT RESOURCE INCREASE AT CASINO

Near-surface Supergene Sulphide Zone increased 90% to 252 Million Tonnes (M+I) (1)
Measured & Indicated Supergene + Hypogene mineralization at 1.06 Billion Tonnes (1)
Inferred Supergene + Hypogene mineralization increased 6 times to 1.70 Billion Tonnes (1)

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Western Copper Corporation (“Western Copper” or the “Company”) (TSX:WRN) is pleased to announce an updated resource estimate for its wholly-owned Casino Gold-Copper-Molybdenum Project in the Yukon Territory.

This new resource estimate is the first estimate to include the 26,000 metres of drilling performed by Western Copper over the past 3 years, and represents a significant update to the 2008 resource estimate.  In addition to the inclusion of new drilling, this estimate incorporates a re-interpretation of the geology of the deposit, which included the re-logging of 90,000 metres of core under the direction of Jack McClintock, Consulting Geologist for Western Copper.

The goal of the drilling campaign, to increase the near-surface supergene sulphide zone, was achieved.  The size of this zone has increased from 133 million tonnes to 252 million tonnes at the measured and indicated level – an increase of 90% (see Table 1).

The additional drilling now brings the drill spacing to 100 metres throughout the majority of the deposit delineating indicated class mineralization and 50 metres through the heart of the deposit to delineate measured class mineralization.  This additional drilling combined with the re-interpretation of the geology and a more current geostatistical treatment results in 1.06 billion tonnes of combined supergene oxide, supergene sulphide, and hypogene mineralization at the measured and indicated level at a 0.25% CuEq cut-off (see Table 3).

The largest increase to the resource comes at the inferred level of categorization.  The combined supergene oxide, supergene sulphide, and hypogene inferred resource at a 0.25% CuEq cutoff has been increased over 6 times to 1.70 billion tonnes (see Table 2).  These results have added 7.4 million ounces of gold, 4.4 billion pounds of copper, and 615 million pounds of molybdenum to the resource at the inferred level.

“This resource upgrade to the Casino Project, one of the world’s largest open-pittable gold, copper, and molybdenum deposits, is remarkable.” said Dale Corman, Chairman & CEO. “This new resource will be included in a revised pre-feasibility study scheduled for completion in early 2011 where we expect the large increase in supergene mineralization to result in higher grades over the initial operation of the mine, lower strip ratios, and thus much better economics.”
