TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 18, 2014) - Superior Copper Corporation ("Superior Copper" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPC) is pleased to announce that it has intersected additional significant copper mineralization at the 3M Zone at its 100% owned Superior Project, 85 kilometres ("km") northwest of Sault Ste. Marie. Diamond drill hole SPC-3M-14-01, reported above, was a 50 metre ("m") up-dip extension of the discovery hole which intersected 1.26% copper, 9.89 grams per tonne ("gpt") silver and 0.10 gpt gold over 5.5 m (see press release dated July 9th, 2014). Complete results received to date of the 3M Zone drilling are provided in the following table. Since drilling started on June 15th we have completed 4,086 m, or 8%, of our budgeted 50,000 m on our regional targets. Two drills are now dedicated to our regional drilling program.

Eight holes in addition to the discovery hole have been completed on the 3M Zone for a total of 2,609 m. Assays are pending for the remaining four holes. Please see the map attached.

"The 3M Zone is a chalcocite bearing hydrothermally altered flow top breccia that is conformable to the regional bedding. The nature of the zone is very similar to the deposits currently being developed by Highland Copper and past producers in the prolific copper belt of the Keweenaw Pennisula in Michigan. This is the first discovery of this type at Superior's Project and represents the first ever conformable copper bearing horizon in the region," states Morgan Quinn, P.Geo., Project Geologist. "We continue to be impressed by the copper mineralization in this newly discovered area."

Since the discovery hole, a 1.5 by 2.0 km grid has been established over the area. A ground Induced Polarization geophysical survey and geological mapping will be completed within the next few weeks. "We are taking a methodical exploration approach to this new discovery," says Quinn.

Regional Target Update

To date four holes have been completed on the Regional Targets for approximately 4,086 m.

"We are encouraged by the drilling at our regional targets," mentions Quinn. "These are deep holes and take time to complete over such a large land package. Historically, no drilling was carried out below 225 m on this property and every hole provides us with geological insight to what may lie below."
