ABBOTSFORD, Canada, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- ICS Copper Systems Ltd.

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.
