TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 12, 2015) - Superior Copper Corporation ("Superior Copper" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPC) announces that it has commenced its 2015 Winter Drill program on its 100% owned Superior Property (the "Property").

Initial drill targets for 2015 will be drilled to follow up the results of the 2014 drill program after a complete review, compilation and analysis of those results. Geochemical and structural data from SPC-14-07 showed positive indications of a potential intrusive source. Drill hole SPC-15-01 is set to test a resistive high to the east of SPC-14-07 identified from the 2014 ZTEM survey that bears a similar geophysical response to other known mineralized intrusions.

Additional drilling is planned to test a vertical strike extensive chargeability anomaly returned from the 2014 induced polarization survey ("IP") over the 3M Zone that appears spatially associated with copper mineralization discovered in SPC-14-01.

There are also several favorable geophysical targets in the central-eastern (see Map) portion of the property planned for 2014 that were rescheduled for 2015 due to timing, location, and access.
