Copper North Completes Acquisition of Thor Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- Copper North Mining Corp. ("Copper North" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: COL) is pleased to announce that the agreement to acquire a 100% interest in the Thor property from Electrum Resource Corporation ("Electrum"), previously announced on July 2, 2014, has been accepted by the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV").

Pursuant to the acquisition agreement, Copper North has made the initial payment of $25,000 and issued 1,000,000 common shares of the Company to Electrum. The common shares issued are subject to a four month hold period. Copper North will maintain its 100% interest in the Thor property by making, over a six year period, additional cash payments totalling $500,000 (for an aggregate of $525,000), issuing four (4) million additional common shares (for an aggregate of 5 million common shares) and incurring exploration expenditures on the property totalling $5 million. If the Company fails to make a scheduled payment of cash or common shares, title to the property will revert to Electrum. In addition, Electrum will receive a 2% Net Smelter Return which is capped at $5 million. The Company agrees to pay an advanced royalty payment of $1 million if commercial production is not attained in respect of the Thor property before the seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth and eleventh anniversaries of the acquisition agreement.

The Thor property consists of 8,700 hectares of mineral claims, is road accessible and is located approximately 20 kilometres south of the Kemess South mine-mill complex in North Central British Columbia. The property hosts several attractive large geophysical targets associated with intrusive complexes similar to those hosting the porphyry copper-gold deposits of the Kemess District. Additional Induced Polarization surveying is planned for summer 2014 to complete coverage in the West and East blocks and better define targets for drill testing.

The technical information in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Dr. Harlan Meade, P. Geo. who is a "qualified person" as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
