Bellhaven’s First Drill Hole at the Caracucho Prospect, Pitaloza, Panama, Delivers 1.32 g/t Gold over 18.29 Meters
Bellhaven Voluntarily Suspends Drilling Operation Pending Resolution Regarding Concession
Vancouver, British Columbia–April 21, 2011. Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its first drill hole targeting high-sulphidation epithermal gold at its 100%-owned Caracucho prospect, Pitaloza, Panama, cut 18.3 meters averaging 1.32 g/t gold starting 1.5 m below the surface. All but the final 3.05 m of the intercept contained in DDH-CC-01 consisted of oxidized, granular vuggy silica. The second drill hole, DDH-CC-02, contained oxidized, granular vuggy silica similar in appearance to the 18.3-m wide intercept contained in DDH-CC-01, but over a broader interval (1.5 to 44.0 m; all assays pending).

Bellhaven Drills Consecutive 200-Plus-Meter Intercept at La Cantera, La Mina, Colombia
DDH-19 Delivers 230 m @ 0.99 g/t Au, 0.30% Cu
Prior Hole at La Cantera, DDH-16, Yielded 205.30m @ 0.91 g/t Au, 0.31% Cu
Vancouver, British Columbia–April 6, 2011. Bellhaven Copper & Gold Inc. (TSX-Venture: BHV) (“Bellhaven” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that DDH-19, the most recent drill hole targeting the La Cantera prospect, delivered a second consecutive intercept in excess of 200 m: 230 m containing 0.99 g/t Au and 0.30% Cu (1.50 g/t AuEq). This long intercept starts at surface and consists of two subzones: (1) 124 m @ 1.23 g/t Au and 0.29% Cu starting at surface and (2) 89 m @ 0.83 g/t Au and 0.36% Cu starting at 141 m. These intercepts continue to demonstrate the relatively high-grade nature of La Cantera compared to other porphyry gold-(copper) deposits found in the Middle Cauca belt of Colombia and elsewhere in the Americas.
