Wallbridge Mining Defines Large IP Target on Rogers Creek Porphyry Copper-Gold Property

Toronto, Ontario - July 10, 2009 - Wallbridge Mining Company Limited (TSX: WM, FWB: WC7) announced today that a large Induced Polarization chargeability anomaly has been defined on its Rogers Creek porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum property in SW British Columbia. The anomaly covers a north-south distance of at least 400 metres and is approximately 1000 metres wide. Its top is between 100-200 metres below surface and it extends to depth. The response is typical of porphyry style mineralization.

This IP chargeability anomaly is centred immediately to the west of an intrusive breccia pipe known as Target 1, beneath an area which hosts a number of surface copper-gold-silver occurrences. Gold, copper and silver (Au, Cu and Ag) soil geochemical anomalies have also been defined on the northern flank of the breccia pipe.

"The progress we have made on this property is exceptional", stated Alar Soever, President of Wallbridge Mining, "It has rapidly progressed from an exploration concept to the point where we now have a large, high quality drill target within a very large system."

The anomaly was defined by a recent IP program, carried out by Abitibi Geophysics, which covers a six by two kilometre area which contains numerous copper-gold occurrences as well as a number of other features indicative of a large mineralizing system. The purpose of the IP survey was to test for mineralization within and around the periphery of the Target 1 and 2 breccia pipes. The Target 1 breccia pipe consists of a variety of highly altered breccia rock types containing mineralized and nonmineralized rock clasts and is intruded by a highly altered feldspar-porphyry stock discovered while prospecting early in 2009. Figure 1, which can be viewed on our website at www.wallbridgemining.com illustrates the location of the IP anomaly as well as the distribution of mineral showings around Targets 1 and 2.
