Canyon Copper Corp.

Additional Drill Holes at Longshot Ridge Encounter Grades of 3.10%, 2.13% and 1.08% Copper

Las Vegas, Nevada, November 16 (ots/PRNewswire)

Canyon Copper
Corp. (the 'Company' or 'Canyon Copper') (OTCBB: CYOO) is pleased to
announce results from a further six drill holes completed on the
Company's New York Canyon copper project located in the Santa Fe
Mining District, Mineral County, Nevada.
Results were recently received from re-analyses conducted on all
pulps generated from the 2006 drill program. Analyses were completed
by ALS Chemex using their AA62 atomic absorption procedure. Sample
pulps were not analysed in numeric order and therefore drill results
are not provided in the order in which the holes were drilled. The
six holes with analytical results currently available include 06-10R,
12R, 16R, 17C, 18R and 19R. Results for the remaining 18 holes from
the 2006 drill program will be reported once received and reviewed
for accuracy. Reverse Circulation holes are designated "R" and
diamond drill core holes are designated "C". A summary of the results
are as follows:

RC drill 06-10R was drilled to a depth of 200 feet. Sample results
returned 0.31 % copper over a 30 foot interval from surface. The hole
was drilled in the central eastern portion of Longshot Ridge.
Hole 06-12R was drilled to a depth of 265 feet and intersected a
125 foot interval from 95 to 220 feet averaging 0.38% copper,
including a 25 foot interval from 195 to 220 feet averaging 0.57%
copper. This hole was drilled approximately 250 feet south of 06-10R.
Hole 06-16R, located in the south central area approximately 250
feet northeast of 06-18R, returned an average of 0.46 % copper over a
45 foot interval from 100 to 145 feet.
Diamond drill hole 06-17C was drilled near the southern limits of
the mineralized Longshot Ridge zone. This hole returned an average of
2.13% copper over a 30 foot interval from 85 to 115 feet from a skarn
altered horizon within marble. Results from this hole indicate that
the mineralization remains open to the south.
Hole 06-18R, located 450 feet northwest of 06-17C in the southern
area of Longshot Ridge, returned an average of 0.80% copper over a 50
foot interval from 40 to 90 feet. The skarn mineralization
encountered in this hole remains untested to the south.
Hole 06-19R returned an average of 1.08% copper over a ninety five
foot interval starting from surface hosted. Mineralization is hosted
within skarn altered siltstone. Included in this interval is a 20
foot interval from 30 feet to 50 feet that averaged 3.10% copper.
This drill hole is located in the southern area of the Longshot Ridge
copper-oxide zone.
