About Candente Copper

Candente Copper is a mineral exploration company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties. The company is currently focused on its 100% owned Canariaco project, which includes the Feasibility stage Canariaco Norte deposit as well as the Canariaco Sur deposit and Quebrada Verde prospect, located within the western Cordillera of the Peruvian Andes in the Department of Lambayeque in Northern Peru.

At Canariaco Norte 7.5 billion pounds of copper have been delineated in a Measured and Indicated(i) resource of 752.4 million tonnes grading 0.49% copper equivalent(ii). An Inferred Resource of 157.7 million tonnes at 0.44% copper equivalent has also been delineated in the Canariaco Norte deposit.

A highly successful Phase I drilling program was carried out in 2013 on the Canariaco Sur deposit. Future drilling is planned for additional step-out drilling at Canariaco Sur as well as first phase drilling on the Quebrada Verde target. Drilling permits are in place for much of the drilling proposed for Canariaco Sur and Candente Copper has applied to MINEM for a modification to its current drilling permit so that additional drilling could be conducted on potential extension areas to Canariaco Sur and on the Quebrada Verde target.

In addition, Candente Copper holds several other base metal exploration projects in Peru. One of these, the Arikepay copper-gold porphyry, is being explored under a joint venture agreement with Zahena S.A.C. who is funding up to USD$5 million (M) in exploration expenditures and USD$4M in payments within 4 years.

Sean Waller, P.Eng., President and Joanne C. Freeze, P.Geo., CEO, are the Qualified Persons as defined by National Instrument 43-101 for the projects discussed above. They have reviewed and approved the contents of this release. (i)The 'Measured and Indicated Resource' listed above consists of Measured Resources of 338.1Mt at 0.48% Cu, 0.08 g/t Au, and 2.0/t Ag (0.52% Cu Eq.), plus Indicated Resources of 414.3Mt at 0.43% Cu, 0.06 g/t Au, and 1.8 g/t Ag (o.46% Cu Eq.). All resources quoted in this release are based on a 0.30% copper cut-off grade and 229 drill holes completed to March 2008. (ii)Copper equivalent grade including gold and silver, metal recoveries (copper 90%, gold 55%; silver 50%) and smelter returns (copper 96.5%: gold 93%; silver 90%) applied. Copper grade equivalent calculation: Cu Eq% =(Cu % + ((Au grade x Au price x Au recovery x Au smelter return%)+(Ag grade x Ag price x Ag recovery x Ag smelter return%))/(22.0462 x Cu price x 31.0135 g/t x Cu recovery x Cu smelter return%). The metal prices used are: copper US$2.50/lb, gold US$1,035/oz and silver US$17.25/oz.
