Bellhaven Receives Channel Samples from Two Exposures Containing 1.1 and 0.9 g/t Gold over 22 and 14 m, Respectively, at the La Cantera Prospect of the La Mina Porphyry Gold Project, Colombia.  Drill Rig Now on Route to the La Mina Project

Panama, Rep. of Panamá – July 15, 2010.  Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that continuous channel sampling at La Cantera, Bellhaven’s primary porphyry gold prospect at La Mina, returned two series of channel samples containing substantial gold.  The first sampled exposure contained 1.09 g/t Au over 22 m and occurs over the North Zone (“NZ”) where Hole 5 cut 90 m @ 1.28 g/t Au across the NZ.  The second exposure assayed 0.86 g/t Au over 14 m and is located between the NZ and the South Zone (“SZ”).  The area between the NZ and the SZ was previously considered to be a barren zone separating the two gold zones.  This new sample result suggests that the barren zone may be narrower than previously thought.
