"It's great to be on the New Mexico Copper team and to help with the Copper Flat Project," said Deborah Peacock. "My first job when I graduated from Colorado School of Mines was as a front-line foreman at one of the largest copper mines in the world.

Peacock represents natural resources companies worldwide, regarding leading edge technologies, business, and intellectual property strategies. In addition, Peacock is the Chair of the New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board and a Regent at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.
Peacock's appointment on NMCC's Board is timely, as the Company successfully completed its Form NI 43-101F1 Technical Report Feasibility Study in the fall of 2013, which is available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com). Another significant milestone the Company is advancing is the Copper Flat Project's Environmental Impact Statement.
