SAG MILL MOTOR TRANSFORMER FAILURE AT COPPER MOUNTAIN MINE Vancouver, British Columbia - May 16, 2013 - Copper Mountain Mining Corporation (TSX: CUM) (the "Company" or "Copper Mountain") announces that one of the two ABB transformers powering the SAG Mill motors at the Copper Mountain mine has experienced a failure of one set of coils in a transformer that has temporarily interrupted the SAG mill operation. The cause of the failure is being evaluated by the supplier, but details are not yet available. A transformer from a ball mill is being moved over to the SAG mill and the SAG mill is scheduled to be back in production by Saturday, May 18, 2013.

As part of the original design of the concentrator, the SAG mill and two ball mills have identical motors and transformers that are interchangeable in the event of a component failure. The Company is proceeding with its contingency plan of relocating one of the Ball mill transformers to replace the failed SAG mill transformer. This action will allow the mill to restart production with the SAG Mill and one Ball Mill. As these are specialty transformers, it is anticipated that it will take approximately 4 weeks to repair. As a result, production will be limited to approximately 1000 TPH or 24,000 TPD during this period. The Company has informed its' insurance carrier of the incident and the manufacturer of the transformer has sent a representative to assist at the mine site. The damaged transformer is being shipped for rebuild in Edmonton.
Jim O'Rourke, President & CEO of Copper Mountain commented, "This transformer failure is an extremely unfortunate event for the operation as our team has been making significant strides in getting our SAG mill up to full capacity. Immediate metal production will be impacted, but all resources are being made to minimize the impact."
