Drill program announced for Yukon Olympic IOCG project

	    VANCOUVER, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - Copper Ridge Explorations Inc. (TSX.V:KRX)
(the "Company") is pleased to report that REC Minerals Corp. (TSX.V:REC) has
announced a $550,000 diamond drill exploration program at the Company's Yukon
Olympic Property, located in the Dawson Mining District, Yukon.
	    Yukon Olympic is an Iron Oxide Copper-Gold ("IOCG") prospect with
similarities to the giant Olympic Dam deposit in Australia. REC's 2,000 m
drill program will focus on the Blackstone anomaly that consists of a strong,
roughly circular magnetic anomaly, greater than 2 km in diameter, with a
partially fringing gravity anomaly up to 2.5 milligals in strength. The
south-eastern portion of the gravity anomaly correlates with known,
copper-bearing hematite (iron oxide) breccia in Spectacular Creek. The
drilling will specifically target coincident gravity and Induced Polarization
(chargeability) geophysical targets. The work is expected to commence in June,
2010. REC has an option to earn up to a 65% interest in the Yukon Olympic
project from the Company.

Ridge, is the Qualified Person for the Yukon Olympic project and is
