Mokambo Receives EIA Approval to Mine and Process Oxides

    Abbotsford, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - ICS Copper Systems Ltd. (ICX:TSX.V) is pleased to announce that the  Company has obtained approval from the Environmental Council of Zambia for  its Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). This is a significant milestone  in advancing the Mokambo property.

    This approval, along with the NI 43-101 Mineral Resource Technical  Report, that is underway, allows the Company to proceed with the economic  feasibility of mining and processing the near surface oxide copper  mineralization at Mokambo. The EIA approval also allows the Company to  proceed with the construction of their new EMEW plant and associated  infrastructure. This processing plant will be used to process the economic  oxide copper mineralization identified in the feasibility and other oxide  copper and cobalt mineralization that will be purchased from local miners  in Zambia and the DRC.

    Construction of the plant is on schedule to be completed in the 4th  quarter of 2008. As part of the processing plant, a self-contained 1250 KVA  generator has been purchased from Harrington Generators International in  the UK. It is presently en route to Mokambo and should arrive in the next 5  weeks. This generator will provide all the necessary power required for the  processing plant and office compound.

    Sulphide Confirmation Drill Program

    The Company will complete the last twined hole to confirm the historical sulphide drill hole data. Results will be released for the entire program after the assay results from this last hole are received.  Coffey Mining, the largest Australian-owned international mining  consultancy firm has been retained to undertake the NI 43-101 Mineral  Resource Technical Report for the oxide and historic sulphide  mineralization. Their report should be completed at the end of July or  early August.

    The Company also wishes to announce that Mr. Graham Chisholm will be  presenting at the Investment Conference in London England, "Mining in  Zambia & Zimbabwe, The Opportunities, Risk & Rewards" to be held at the  offices of Deloitte & Touche, 2 New Street Square, London @ 2:00 p.m. on  June 25th, 2008.
