NEVADA COPPER ANNOUNCES US$2,000,000

CONVERTIBLE DEBENTURE



June 26, 2009 - Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX: NCU) (“Nevada Copper”) announces that it has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) with Zhongtiaoshan Non-ferrous Metals Group Co., Ltd. (“ZTS”) whereby US$2,000,000 (the “Principal”) has been received today by way of a convertible debenture (the “Convertible Debenture”). The Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Agreement are subject to the approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange.



ZTS is a leading Chinese copper producer formed in 1956 and based in Shanxi Province. ZTS has developed into a large diversified copper group that conducts business in mining, refining and processing. ZTS is currently one of China’s largest state-owned enterprises.



The Convertible Debenture will mature 18 months from the date of advancement of the Principal (the “Maturity Date”) and bears interest at a rate of 7% per annum calculated monthly and payable in full on the Maturity Date. Nevada Copper will have the option at any time six months from the date the Principal is advanced to re-pay the then outstanding amount of the Convertible Debenture plus accrued interest.



The principal outstanding under the Convertible Debenture will be convertible into common shares at a deemed price of Cdn$1.00 which represents approximately an 77% premium over the 30 day weighted average closing price. The principal outstanding can be converted any time up to the day immediately preceding the Maturity Date. If Nevada Copper’s common shares trade at a price of greater than Cdn$1.35 per share for a period of 20 consecutive trading days, Nevada Copper may, at its option any time after the expiry of the four month hold period which commences on the date of issue of the Convertible Debenture, convert the principal outstanding under the Convertible Debenture in whole or in part into common shares. All common shares issued upon conversion of the Convertible Debenture will be subject to a four month hold period commencing on the date of issuance of the Convertible Debenture, under applicable securities laws.



As part of the Agreement, Nevada Copper has agreed to issue to ZTS such number of common share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) that entitles ZTS to purchase up to 100,000 common shares of Nevada Copper at a purchase price of Cdn$1.00 per share at any time over a period of 18 months from the date of issuance of the Warrants. The Warrants and any common shares issued upon exercise of the Warrants will be subject to a four month hold commencing on the date of issuance of the Warrants under applicable securities laws.



Proceeds from the Convertible Debenture will be applied to the Pumpkin Hollow property and working capital. Nevada Copper has 40.6 million shares outstanding. For additional information about Nevada Copper please visit our website at www.nevadacopper.com.



The common shares issuable upon conversion have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or an applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any State in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Apr 28, 2009 08:01 ETNevada Copper-Drills High Grade: 42 Meters (136 ft) @ 3.2% Copper, 1 g/t Gold in the E-2 Deposit and 38 Meters (125 ft) @ 3.2% Copper in the East Deposit
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 28, 2009) - Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) ("Nevada Copper") reports significant high grade drilling results from the East and E-2 Deposits. Drilling continues to confirm and improve the resource quality and quantity of these deposits at its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow Copper Development Property located in Nevada.

Drill hole NC08-39 intersected 41.5 meters (136.2 ft), 26.6 meters (87 ft) true thickness, averaging 3.24% copper and 1.0 g/t gold in the E2 Deposit including an impressive higher grade interval of 9.1 meters (30 ft) averaging 6.0% copper and 1.75 g/t gold. NC08-39 was drilled 15 meters (50 ft) to the southwest and along strike of drill hole M-44 (44.2 meters (145 ft) averaging 2.58% copper and 0.89 g/t gold).

Recent drilling in the East Deposit also produced very favorable results that confirm and will further increase the resource. Drill hole NC08-49 intersected 38.1 meters (125.0 ft), averaging 3.24% copper including an even higher grade zone of 14.9 meters (49 ft) averaging 5.4% copper and 0.6 g/t gold. This zone is thicker than the 4.1% copper over 12.2 meters (40 ft) and 3.3% copper over 17.4 meters (57 ft) found in NC07-05, located 40 meters (130 ft) to the southeast and along strike.

Additional holes were drilled in the East and E-2 Deposits that continue to confirm continuity or define the boundaries of the high grade mineralization. In the East Deposit NC08-18 and 48 confirmed continuity and NC08-54 defined the high grade boundary. Holes NC08-29, 47, and 55 were drilled in the E-2 Deposit. They intersected varying thicknesses of greater than 1.0% copper along the edges of the E-2 mineralization.

The drill hole plan map for the East and E-2 Deposits are available at http://www.nevadacopper.com/s/PumpkinHollow.asp?ReportID=345667.

Nevada Copper Reports Significant Resource Increase to 9.3 Billion Pounds Copper & 1.45 Million Ounces of Gold, Including 42% Increase to Measured & Indicated

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 15, 2009) - Nevada Copper Corp. (TSX:NCU) ("Nevada Copper") is pleased to announce it has completed an updated National Instrument 43-101 compliant resource estimate for its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow IOCG Property in Nevada. Copper, gold and iron resources have increased significantly while showing substantial increases in the Measured and Indicated ("M & I") categories.

The increase in the total resources is largely due to the very successful expansion of open mineralization and focused resource classification drilling during 2008. The new resource estimate increased to 9.3 billion pounds of copper at a 0.20% cutoff, an increase of 1.4 billion pounds of copper or 18% from the November 2007 resource of 7.9 billion pounds. The following are highlights of the new resource estimate:

- 42% Increase of the M & I copper resource to 5.6 billion pounds (0.20% cutoff);

- 55% Increase of the M & I gold resource to 983,000 ounces;

- 47% Increase of the M & I and Inferred Iron resource in the Western deposits to 362 million tons averaging 35.8% iron (20% cutoff);

- 74% Increase of M & I open pit Western deposits copper resource to 198 million tons averaging 0.66% copper (0.30% cutoff);

- Eastern underground deposits now contain a M & I resource of 31 million tons averaging 1.83% copper and an Inferred resource of 9 million tons of 1.67% copper (1.0% cutoff); and

- Total gold resource of 1.45 million ounces and 55 million ounces of silver (0.20% cutoff).

The resource estimate was prepared by the mineral resource and mining division of Tetra Tech MM Inc., an industry leading international engineering firm.

The detailed resource summary is as follows:

Nevada Copper is also pleased to report that significant potential continues to exist to further expand the resource with open mineralization fronts remaining in the Eastern and Western deposits. As currently designed the Eastern deposits will share a common underground access and the Western deposits will have a common open pit high wall. All deposits are within one mile of each other and contained on private patented claims.

The updated resource is based on a database that now consists of 530 drill holes containing in excess of 222,500 meters (730,000 feet) of drilling and over 42,000 assays. The 2008 program consisted of 73 resource, hydrological, and geotechnical holes that totaled over 26,600 meters (87,300 feet) and were incorporated into the updated resource estimate.

Gregory French, CPG, M.Sc., commented, "The 2008 drilling program proved to be extremely successful with a combination of both infill drilling and targeting open mineralization. First, the infill drilling improved the continuity and confidence in the mineralization. Secondly, the resource was expanded where new mineralization was encountered. The combination of the two produced a 42% increase in the Measured and Indicated resource categories and a significant increase to the total contained metal. These increases will have a very positive impact on the already robust economics of the project. Future drilling will build on this large and high grade resource with a focus on defining several open mineralized areas."

As a result of the significant increases in the updated resource estimate, Nevada Copper intends to update its Preliminary Economic Assessment ("PEA") to incorporate these results and recent positive results of its internal optimization studies. The internal optimization studies have focused on developing a production profile that results in largely reduced capital costs, higher grade resources while also being resilient to lower copper prices.

The updated PEA will commence immediately, followed by a Feasibility Study in 2009.

Iron Resource

Nevada Copper has also updated its stand alone resource estimate of the iron resource at Pumpkin Hollow. As previously disclosed this will allow Nevada Copper to better access the commercial viability of the large iron by-product found within and contiguous to the copper-gold-silver deposits at Pumpkin Hollow.

The following tables express only those iron resources amenable to open-pit mining methods in the Western deposits:

Potentially open pit iron resources at Pumpkin Hollow are 130 million tons of contained iron in 361 million tons at an average grade of 36% iron at a 20% iron cutoff. Iron occurs predominately as magnetite and historic metallurgical test-work has demonstrated the ready amenability of generating a marketable pellet feed concentrate. The iron deposits at Pumpkin Hollow remain open in several directions.

A NI 43-101 report on the Pumpkin Hollow resource estimate will be available within 45 days on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Nevada Copper is not aware of any environmental, permitting, legal, title, taxation, socio-political, marketing or other issues which may materially affect its estimate of mineral resources.

Qualified Person

The mineral estimation work was performed by or under the direction of John Rozelle, PG, Tetra Tech's Mineral Resource Division Principal Geologist, an independent Qualified Person as set forth by Canadian National Instrument 43-101. The Pumpkin Hollow project is under the supervision of Gregory French, CPG #10708, a Qualified Person as defined in Canadian National Instrument 43-101, who is responsible for the preparation of the technical information in this news release.
