ICS Copper Systems Ltd

Mokambo Receives EIA Approval to Mine and Proce...





ABBOTSFORD, Canada, June 10 /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.
