Mokambo Project - Near Surface Drill Results Update - Cobalt Identified

    Abbotsford, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - ICS Copper Systems Ltd. (ICX:TSX.V) is pleased to announce new assay  results on their Mokambo Project situated in Mufulira, Zambia. The 2007-2008  shallow drilling program is 70% complete with respect to the initial delineation drill program. Assay results are still backlogged and cover only  25% of the drill program. The backlog is presently being reduced as quickly  as possible. The limited results though, have identified some large  intersections of copper. Along with the copper, significant cobalt  mineralization has also been identified. Highlights include drill road  number 6 showing 3.143% copper over 4.58 meters, 1.23% copper over 13.82  meters, 0.301% copper over 41.42 meters and 0.036% cobalt over 3.67 meters.

    The drill program has 20 roads, assay results for roads 7 onwards will  be released in due course once assay results are known.

    Several holes were inadvertently stopped in mineralization (i.e. end of hole (EOH). At the end of this phase of drilling, a NI 43-101 Technical  Report on the oxide copper and cobalt mineral resources will be undertaken.  A further definition drilling program will be undertaken to move the copper  and cobalt mineralization into higher (i.e. measured and indicated)  categories for mine design purposes and eventual ore reserve estimate under  NI 43-101.

    A second drill is being sourced to start the confirmation drilling of the sulphide copper mineralization after the rainy season is over, in April. Permission is being sought by the Zambian Chamber of Mines to re-assay the historic drill core they are storing, as part of the confirmation drilling. A 3D computer block model has been constructed from the historic drill logs acquired by the company in 2007. There are several gaps along strike of the mineralized bodies, identified in the block model, that were not historically drilled. ICS plans to drill these areas as soon as possible to increase the present historical estimate.

    Mr. Graham Chisholm, President comments "The identification of cobalt in numerous holes is good news and will add value to the profitability of the Mokambo Project."

    David Makepeace, P.Eng. M.Eng, a director of the Company and its acting Chief Operating Officer, a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101, supervised the preparation of the technical information in this news release.
